* Done to great effect in ''Film/HotFuzz'': the main character is disenchanted and giving up when he sees [=DVDs=] of ''Film/PointBreak1991'' and ''Film/BadBoys2'' in a little convenience store. Inspired, he buys a pair of cheap sunglasses that make him look disproportionately badass. He later hands off a spare pair to his partner when they meet up.

* ''VideoGame/{{Speedball}} 2'' has Bitmap Shades as an item that gives players increased aggression.



* Software designers The Creator/BitmapBrothers had cool shades as their schtick. On photographs in game magazines of the day, they often wore sunglasses, and in at least some of their games, cool shades were included as a hidden item or easter egg. One example is ''VideoGame/Xenon2Megablast'', where the player can buy "Bitmap Shades" as an extremely expensive item. All it does is change the graphics to pure black and white.

** More mundane, but still cool, shades of various styles are worn by all the principle spy characters throughout the series. Even Chuck and Morgan look cool, but they send Casey's badass cred UpToEleven.
