Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai[]

In the manga and the 1991 anime series, the dancer's costume makes an appearance as one of the many outfits that Leona tries on at Bengarna's department store before she eventually settles on a set of wayfarer's clothes. The design is different from the one seen in Dragon Quest IV. Popp vetoes the outfit, telling her that it's too flashy for a Sage to wear. In the 2020 anime series, she tries on the Angel leotard instead.
