Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })The universal formula for depicting a character to be instantly recognizable as "a Superhero" of some sort: put them in reasonably form-fitting clothes, and then add a prominent symbol on the chest.
Almost universally in the earlier eras, and in many cases today, the logo is centered and covers at least half the space available; a variant, that appears more and more frequently nowadays, has it shrunk down and off-center like a police badge, or on a belt buckle. Copyright-holders soon realized that these insignia were marketing gold, in that fans of the characters were more consistently attracted to the insignia than the faces of the characters themselves; a valuable realization when different performers were chosen to portray the characters for various reasons. In addition, it's often easier to slap a stylized letter or icon onto merchandise, since the Uncanny Valley comes into play when trying to incorporate character faces onto merchandise.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Recently there has been a trend (particularly with less "super" characters) of justifying the symbol by having it attract gunfire towards the torso (which is easier to armour), such as with Batman and The Punisher.
Said symbol will often be Brought to You by the Letter "S". If it glows, there's overlap with Heart Light.
Compare Highly Conspicuous Uniform (the group and/or military version of this trope), Symbol Motif Clothing.

There's the "i" in an oval sported by The Incredibles. Even the villain Syndrome sported an "S" that covered his entire torso. Interestingly, during the lawsuits that force Mr Incredible and other supers into hiding, Mr. Incredible's defense lawyer covers his Chest Insignia with a hand. This makes sense in context, given that Mr. Incredible is an identity defined by said logo.

Care Bears and their Cousins also have symbols unique to each character. As an added bonus, these symbols double as a weapon, at least in earlier installments. Originally they were known as tummy symbols, in latter installments they're known as belly badges and can be used to activate special powers, rather than being used as a weapon.

And then there was the Hurricane (Gregory Helms), whose gimmick was of a superhero. Naturally, he wore a 'hurricane' symbol with an H in the center on his costume.
His sidekick Rosie, once he 'graduated', sported an R. Since Rosie was about twice the size of Hurricane, his R was about twice as big as Hurricane's symbol.
His original sidekick, Mighty Molly, had a symbol similar to the Hurricane's but with an "M" in the center.

In the various My Little Pony series, each pony has a symbol on their flank (known as a "cutie mark" in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic) corresponding to their name and personality. It's where a brand would be on an actual horse, which... is actually pretty dark.
Especially in Generation 1, there are variations to this. Some Little Ponies have symbols over their entire torso. Others, such as the Winger Ponies, have their flank symbols matched by one on their forehead. And Sea Ponies for the most part do not have symbols at all; the few who do have a necklace as symbol.

Lampshaded in Everyday Heroes. Team leader Matt O'Morph has a super-flexible boneless body; in the same way, his chest emblem is an irregular blob that changes shape in every panel.
His teammates have more traditional symbols: Mr. Mighty's gold double-M in an oval, and Dot Dash's dot-and-dash (a convoluted pun on her real name).

In the third season of Red vs. Blue, the engine used to film the series was changed when Halo 2 was released. In the game the player can customise their character with different insignias (although they wear them on their shoulders rather than the chest).

Notably, the original Power Ranger team only had the belt buckle versions (except for the White Ranger), but the trope was powerful enough for all of the toys from the original run to add them to the chest as well. The movie followed suit. (We wouldn't get show-accurate MMPR toys until 2009, well after MMPR's 1993 debut!)

WILQ – Superbohater:
The sign of Rzuff that Wilg wears on his chest, that looks like a turtle. "Rzuff" is mispronounced "żółw", which means a turtle; similarly, "Wilq" is mispronounced "wilk", which means wolf. Just don't try to think about it too much.

The reboot version of Lar Gand of the Legion of Super-Heroes wore a costume with an insignia◊ that could be seen as either an "M" for M'onel (his 30th century Code Name) or "V" for Valor (his 20th century one). Various other Legionnaires also wear or have worn chest insignias, such as Sun Boy's sunburst and Timber Wolf's stylized wolf head.
By the post-Zero Hour! continuity, if not before, it became standard for all Legionnaires to wear a belt buckle with the Legion's insignia, an L and star inside a circle.

In JSA: Classified #2, Power Girl explains her distinctive (and infamous) costume "keyhole" as a kind of anti-insignia: "The first time I made this costume, I wanted to have a symbol, like you. I just... I couldn't think of anything. I thought eventually, I'd figure it out. And close the hole. But I haven't."
Leading to the infamous "Fill my hole, Superman."
Ironically, the original reason was just that Power Girl was an aggressive woman who took pride in her femininity.
She also categorically refused a P insignia offer by a JSA teammate.
The lack of an insignia became an unintentional bit of Fridge Brilliance. Her "cleavage window" is the same kind of circle with a line that's used as the 'Power' icon for most electronics.
In the New 52, Power Girl wears a more modest outfit with a stylized "P" on the left side of her chest...until enough people complained about it that they went back to the Cleavage Window.

On the original Wacky Races, each car had an oval with a "W" on it. Closer shots showed an axle with a tire on each side coming out of the W, which was the Hanna-Barbera graphic trademark for the show. (Usually the graphic trademark was a square with the show's characters.)

Commander Shepard in Mass Effect has the N7 emblem (basically the Alliance's version of a Ranger Tab, although Shepard is the only character seen thus far to have it) on the left breast of their default armor. In the 2nd game it also appears on all non DLC, customizable chest plates. Promotional images for the third game reveal Ashley Williams to have her own version of the armor with S1 in place of the N7.

ThunderCats (2011): The Blue Blood, Royal Blood and soldiers of Thundera all sport large red cabochons on their clothing, either chest or belt-mounted, and their shields, meant to evoke their Power Crystal, the Eye of Thundera. It's even present on a Thunderian Sphinx. The Cat-headed Iconic Logo carried over from the original is the royal emblem, seen in the castle throne room, and projected as a Bat Signal, but does not appear on armor or clothing, in part as a deliberate effort to avert instances of the Unreliable Illustrator.

Batman:
The iconic bat silhouette. This was lampshaded in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, where Batman admits that the famous bright yellow background is, obviously, a great big target as he gets shot smack dab in the middle of it, revealing that there's armor plating behind it. He then goes on to explain that he did it because he "can't armor my head". (Has Batman not heard of helmets, or does he just not want to wear one?)
Some of the Silver Age stories have the bat-emblem used as a diamond-edged cutting tool.
And Robin's off-center "R" in a circle.
The similarity of the original version to the registered trademark symbol ® has been a frequent parody gag.
On Tim Drake's Robin uniform, the "R" was a hidden stylized shuriken.
The Batgirls also have batsymbols on their chests, although Cassandra Cain's is more of an outline.
As does the current Batwoman. The original Bat-Woman and Bat-Girl didn't, though.
Nightwing has ... a sort of stylised wing-shape, although adaptations and the New 52 make it more recognisable as a bird.
Red Robin has a large circular disk with a stylized silhouette of a bird's head on it in the middle of his chest.

Not quite heroes, but there's the minor fact that Star Trek featured the small-bit-on-the-side version. To the point where some of the fluff says the Enterprise's then-unique pointy thing became Starfleet's actual official insignia so everyone could wear it. In the Next Generation era, they double as communicators/trackers.

All of Ben's alien forms in Ben 10 have the Omnitrix symbol on them somewhere, usually the chest, but the shoulder, forehead, and wrist are also common options. Grey Matter is the form with the oddest placement. It's much larger than usual given Grey Matter's small size, but on his back, where it's not usually visible. Justified in that the symbol basically is the Imported Alien Phlebotinum that lets him turn into those alien forms - the Omnitrix tailors itself to its user and not all of Ben's forms have arms. We have a Flip-Flop of God on this: In the Alien Force/Ultimate Alien years, the reformatted Omnitrix and the Ultimatrix have the symbol always on the chest, and to change directly from one alien form to another (the original version couldn't do that) he slapped the Omnitrix symbol. Dwayne McDuffie, the showrunner at the time, said that the pre-reformatted Omnitrix wasn't working at 100%, and it was always meant to be in the center of the chest for easy reachability. However, Omniverse puts the Omnitrix symbol in different places again, and its showrunner Derrick J Wyatt said that it was errors in the previous models that limited the positioning of the Omnitrix during AF/UA. Neither explanation has been mentioned in-show.
It eventually gets his identity exposed in Ben 10: Ultimate Alien: A young fan noticed that there were a bunch of aliens wearing the same symbol in about the same area, and after poking around that area found that Ben wore an identical symbol on his watch...
The Plumbers in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien have badges (identical to Ben's Omnitrix symbol) that they wear on the chests of their armor. We find out that the Omnitrix and the Plumbers bear the same symbol because it is an intergalactic peace symbol that predates both.

Wonder Woman
For most of her history Diana has had a soaring eagle on the top of her one-piece. In 1982 it was replaced it with concentric W's (explained in-story as the logo of the "Wonder Woman Foundation" and, Post-Crisis, as Diana Trevor's WAFS insignia). The eagle has recently returned.
Donna Troy had a version of the eagle on her red shirt as Wonder Girl.
Cassie Sandsmark's original Wonder Girl costume had a black shirt with Wonder Woman's concentric Ws overlaid with a G.
In Wonder Woman and the Star Riders the villain Purrsia wears a P on her chest.

Spider-Man:
Spider-Man's spider at the center of his costume's web-pattern. (He also sports a more abstract spider on the back of it.)
The Black Costume/Venom has a larger white spider design that takes up most of the chest and back.
Ben Reilly had his own Spider-Man costume design, which Spider-Girl (Pete & MJ's daughter from an Alternate Universe 20 Minutes into the Future) adopted for her own series.
Arachne, another spider-themed female hero, uses the Venom-style design. In fact her costume, back when she was the current Spider Woman, was the inspiration for Peter's original black costume.

The X-Men have an X in circle logo. It usually isn't in the middle of their chest, but it still counts.
Emma Frost has a particularly Stripperific variation on the X logo; it's made up of the exposed portions of her skin.
Most versions of Sunfire's costume have a red circle and lines across his chest that evoke the Japanese military flag.
Havok used to use a pattern of circles within each other that looked similar to the way his energy blasts are drawn. Nowadays he just has a glowing circle with lines reaching out of it.
Thunderbird's costume featured a large eagle on the chest, spreading its wings out in the shape of a T.
Similarly, Phoenix (Jean Grey) sported an abstract, triangular bird shape. The "light" Phoenix version was a small phoenix in a black triangle, whereas the Dark Phoenix showed a very large emblem which covered nearly her entire torso. Double-subverterd by the earliest version of Rachel Summers, who initially wore her emblem-less Hound costume, but she eventually switched over to the traditional Phoenix costume.

Green Lantern's namesake — more stylized for the Silver Age Green Lantern Corps than for Golden Age's Alan Scott.
With the formation of more Lantern Corps, each of them have their own insignia.
This is done for maximum horrific effect in Blackest Night among the Black Lanterns. When a corpse rises as a Black Lantern, the Black Hand symbol (a downward-pointing triangle with five lines coming from the top) is always incorporated into their new costume; sometimes in extremely imaginative ways (for instance, Black Lantern Superman has his S-shield as the triangle).

Super Sentai / Power Rangers:
Many teams feature Chest Insignia. Sometimes it's a team logo, sometimes it's a personal one. A few have the smaller offset-to-the-side version. Logo belt buckles are also used but they're generally not as visible.
Notably, the original Power Ranger team only had the belt buckle versions (except for the White Ranger), but the trope was powerful enough for all of the toys from the original run to add them to the chest as well. The movie followed suit. (We wouldn't get show-accurate MMPR toys until 2009, well after MMPR's 1993 debut!)

Variation in Dragon Ball; the iconic orange gi worn at various times by acolytes of the Turtle school (most notably Goku, Krillin and Yamcha) has the kanji for "turtle" ("kame") prominently featured on the back, and in smaller type on the left chest (instead of centered on the chest like in most examples). The kanji is sometimes changed to reflect the wearer's fighting style: Piccolo gives Gohan a version with his demon clan insignia when he trained him during the Saiyan saga, and Goku swaps out the back insignia for King Kai's (while retaining the turtle insignia on the front) after training with him in the afterlife.

The iconic bat silhouette. This was lampshaded in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, where Batman admits that the famous bright yellow background is, obviously, a great big target as he gets shot smack dab in the middle of it, revealing that there's armor plating behind it. He then goes on to explain that he did it because he "can't armor my head". (Has Batman not heard of helmets, or does he just not want to wear one?)

In My Brother Is A Superhero, Zack gets three glowing stars on his chest when he's given superpowers. Oddly enough he doesn't incorporate this into his Star Guy costume (which is just a dark hoodie); instead, Luke makes him a "sigil," consisting of an old brooch with the letters "SG" spelled out in little stars that came from a Christmas decoration.note He also makes Zack a cape, which he refuses to wear. Not that Luke is bitter or anything.

Though not quite a superhero, the star on Homestar Runner's shirt has become emblematic of the series. Strong Mad similarly has an M on his singlet, and Homsar has his entire name on his shirt. Coach Z also wears a "Z" emblem on his footy-pajamas/stomach.

Alex accepts and believes in Kara's reasons for not having a real Chest Insignia, but she also acknowledges the House of El by including the Superman �S� on her belt buckle and on the broaches that hold her cape on. Like Power Girl, Alex feels that if people are overly preoccupied or distracted by her boobs that's their problem, not hers.

Most Navis in Mega Man Battle Network have their characteristic insignia in a circle on their chest. MegaMan.EXE himself has a stylized H, which stands for "Hikari," the family name of of his operator Lan as well as himself. Long story.
Ditto Geo in Mega Man Star Force, though there's only one or two other characters that have one.

And Robin's off-center "R" in a circle.
The similarity of the original version to the registered trademark symbol ® has been a frequent parody gag.
On Tim Drake's Robin uniform, the "R" was a hidden stylized shuriken.

LazyTown's resident "slightly above average hero", the unfeasibly athletic, blue-bespandexed Sportacus, sports a chest badge that reads "10". The number indicates his heritage (he's tenth in a line of similar protectors) and carries connotations of his being a "team player".

In Superman: Brainiac, Brainiac points out that Superman's bio-suit appears to serve no purpose as he touches the S-shield. Superman growls that "My uniform's designed after the Kryptonian flag and my father's family crest".

All of the bread-headed superheroes from Anpanman have a symbol to represent them in some way. Anpanman has a smiley face, Currypanman's is a lemon-shaped smiley face with a neutral expression, Shokupanman has an angular "S", Melonpanna has a lowercase "M", Creampanda a "C", and Rollpanna two hearts (one red, the other blue to represent both of her hearts).

MegaMan NT Warrior:
Every Navi has a circular personal symbol of some sort, and several mount it in the center of their chests, notably Rockman himself. (Hino "Hinoken" Kenichi actually used recolors of the same symbol for all three of the Navis he operated during the series: FireMan, HeatMan, and FlameMan.)
There's a subversion with Blood Knight Bass/Forte: in place of a symbol he has a massive scar where his symbol would normally be.

Subverted in The Tick with Four-Legged Man, whose chest reads "(4 legs)". Parentheses included. The Tick's own chest is pure blue, whereas Barry, the jerkass self-styled superhero that was trying to steal the Tick's name, had a big tick outline on his chest.

Inverted in the Facing the Future Series where Sam designs a logo for her ghost identity Sam Tasma that goes on the back of her coat. Despite the impracticalness of it, it doesn't matter to Sam.

City of Heroes allows players to choose chest insignia from over a hundred symbols, plus every letter in the Greek and Roman alphabets and all ten decimal digits.
Although the letter and number options are pretty rarely used, as they look kinda silly.

Most Transformers sport the robot-face Autobot or Decepticon logo prominently on their chests (Others may have them on their shoulders, or wings if they have an aerial alt-mode). Skyfire switched out his own logo to indicate he'd defected, demonstrating that these logos are removable, not painted or embossed. (Magnetic patches, perhaps?)
Some of the Decepticon ones, at least, are brands: see Transformers Animated, when Mixmaster and Scrapper join the Decepticons.
We've also seen these symbols appear out of flippin' nowhere when a character joins/changes sides. And a couple of spy characters have the ability to change theirs at will.

A few of the superheroes in Happy Heroes have a chest insignia.
Happy S.'s symbol is a heart.
Sweet S.'s symbol is a pink-red first aid cross, symbolizing her healing abilities and protective personality.
Careful S. has planet Gray's symbol (a yellow alien head with antenna-like ears on its sides) to represent how he was continuously used for evil from seasons 1 to 9. From Season 10 onwards, the insignia is changed to Kalo's triangle symbol to represent how they used to form the Gallant duo.
Kalo's symbol is an inverted triangle. As mentioned above, Careful S. adopts this symbol himself starting from Season 10.

Captain America's white star, though the pattern on his shield and the A on his forehead are also pretty emblematic of him.
USAgent, who was Captain America for a while in the 80s, has red and white stripes with a black star in the upper-left.
When Steve Rogers served as Director of SHIELD, his outfit had a chest insignia featuring a white star inside an outlined white circle, with three white stripes extending on each side of the circle.
