* This appears in various iterations of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' as a stereotype of Klingons; Starfleet crewmen make racist jokes about Klingon hygeine and body odor in ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' and Q makes similar barbs about Worf in ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]]'', even in Worf's presence (he's a [[PhysicalGod god]], what could Worf do to him?).

* ''ThisAmericanLife'': in a bit by David Sedaris that takes place while he's living in France, on the French subway he [[BilingualBackfire overhears]] an ugly American HawaiianShirtedTourist and his wife talking loudly about (among other things) how much French people stink. Including Sedaris, who (a) isn't French, he's only living there and (b) just took a bath.

* In ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'', this is discussed and averted; Colon says that a sign of the good Morporkian way of life is "washing regular", and Nobby ([[InsultFriendlyFire who probably doesn't wash regular himself]]) mentions that he's never seen [[AsianStoreOwner Mr. Goriff]] and his family with dirty clothes.
