* In the first ''[[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI Shin Megami Tensei]]'', although the Chaos Hero sports an urban camo trenchcoat and a brash demeanor, he is physically weak and openly admits to such, constantly relying on other characters for help. Although that may [[CutsceneIncompetence not be the case during gameplay]]...

This led to a huge case of UnfortunateImplications, since another group of students at Columbine, known as the "Trenchcoat Mafia" for their affinity for similar coats, was put under a great deal of suspicion -- even though Harris and Klebold were peripheral friends of theirs at best. You can thank Harris' father for this urban legend, as he claimed in a 911 call that Eric was a member of the Trenchcoat Mafia and was sure he was involved for that reason. Some schools tried to ban long coats in the aftermath of Columbine on the grounds of claiming it was a gang uniform. In some cases, the [[IAmSpartacus student population]] responded by donning the garment ''en masse'' [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome to prove a very valid point]]. In any case, while the two [[OlderThanTheyThink weren't the first spree killers]] to wear them, trench coats became associated with mass murder for several years as a result of Columbine, with many school shooters afterwards deliberately emulating Harris and Klebold's choice of fashion. MoralGuardians were quick to suggest that the two were inspired by films featuring gun-toting, trenchcoat-clad protagonists, including ''The Matrix'' (still running in theaters at the time) and ''The Basketball Diaries''.
