* When ties became regarded as uncool in the 60s, bowties were the first to go (neckties were saved by getting larger). In the 80s, the bowtie had a resurgence among "yuppies", but they became DeaderThanDisco once again by the 90s. In the early 2010's, they came back in fashion again; with everyone from high school students to dads to celebrities are rocking them.

* ''WesternAnimation/YogiBear'' wears a necktie, but a bow-tie seems to work for his pal Boo-Boo. You might say Boo-Boo is dressed sharper than the average bear.

* [[{{Badass}} Ranma]] from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' would occasionally wear a rather nice [[RealMenWearPink pastel orange]] shirt combined with a little red bow-tie.

* Another ''Batman'' example: ChristopherWalken sports one while playing ManipulativeBastard Max Shreck in 1992's ''Film/BatmanReturns''. Together with his pinstriped suit, black gloves, spats and OminousOperaCape, Max looks like some {{Badass}} amalgam of 1920s gangster and medieval lord.

** [[{{Badass}} Dave Strider]] in his [[ItemCrafting alchemized]] [[BadassInANiceSuit badass nice suits]]. Compare to [[TheFool John]], whose suits just do normal ties and is decidedly not a "[[TotallyRadical coolkid]]" as Dave is.
** Most of the Felt, especially Doc Scratch.
** Tellingly, [[TokenEvilTeammate undying]] [[NotSoHarmlessVillain Umbrage]] ([[spoiler:Caliborn]]) rocks this trope in combination with suspenders, invoking images of both the {{Trope Namer|s}} and TheManBehindTheMan Lord English, [[spoiler: who is his future self]].

* One ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' strip has Jason wearing a bow-tie to school due to believing people with bow-ties look smarter. He also wore an AlbertEinstein mask until the nose was dented. It should be noted that Jason was already making A+++ and higher grades. He was just trying to pad his grade even ''more'' with this trope.
