** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'': Faris of has one very similar to Setzer's in the concept art and PS1 version's FMV cutscenes. She is not depicted wearing this in the game, sadly.

* ''Film/TheBasketballDiaries'' features [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2e3frGx8sw a dream sequence]] (one that became very much HarsherInHindsight after UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}}) in which the protagonist bursts into his school to mow down bullies and his teacher with a shotgun while wearing a black leather trenchcoat.



* In a chilling example, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the two teenagers who carried out the [[UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} Columbine High School massacre]]. Leather trench coats seemed to hold a symbolic significance for them. Despite the common imagine of them in their trench coats, however, they only used them long enough to conceal their weapons; Harris dropped his outside the school near a fence, and Klebold took his off in the library. They spent the rest of the fight in T-shirts that were custom-printed with significant phrases, black cargo pants, combat boots, and their shell belts (and a sling for Harris with his rifle).
** A video that they made for a school project features the two in trench coats.
** MoralGuardians were quick to suggest that they were inspired by films featuring gun-toting, trenchcoat-clad protagonists, including ''The Matrix'' (still running in theaters at the time) and ''The Basketball Diaries'' (which features a dream sequence in which the lead character bursts into his school to mow down bullies with a shotgun and other weapons while wearing a trenchcoat and sunglasses).
** 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 that. In a 911 call he stated 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]].
* Many school shooters after the Columbine incident wore the same black coat look. Psychologists suspect they deliberately emulated the look of the Columbine shooters.
** [[OlderThanTheyThink Some school shooters were wearing trenchcoats several years before Columbine.]]

** SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker has been wearing a purple or black trenchcoat since Marshall Rogers first drew the character with one in the mid 1970s. Much of the time he wears it as an overcoat and removes it when hes indoors or relaxing but some works like Brian Azzarello's Comicbook/{{Joker}} feature the badass longcoat as a staple of Joker's outfit.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' Season 3 gives us the BigBad, Hive rocking a black duster after [[spoiler:restoring Grant Ward's body]], which given the fact it vaguely looks like a priest, adds to his CreepyAwesome cult leader character. The first scene with him wearing it even slows down so we can see it in a slow-mo FemaleGaze.
