** In the scene in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOUmOtguEFo this clip]], Robin is wearing her usual style in a cold, snowy location. (It's not exactly a scene that suggests {{fanservice}}, however, [[TearJerker given what just happened]].)

* The majority of the second game of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'' takes place in December, with regular visits to a snow-covered mountain village. Despite this, all of the girl's outfits stop at the knees or higher. Fie's outfit is the most extreme example, consisting of a midriff-baring tank top, low hanging short shorts, and an open jacket.

* Both averted and played straight in ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}''. When they assault [[spoiler:Ozymandias']] Antarctic base, Nite Owl wears a specially designed cold suit (which resembles a snowy owl). Rorschach just wears a scarf with his usual suit and longcoat. (It should be noted he ''is'' in serious danger of freezing to death during this sequence. [[{{Determinator}} He's too crazy to care]].) When Silk Spectre arrives (by teleportation, without any opportunity to prepare warmer garb) in her rather skimpier outfit, she's freezing.

* {{Aquaman}} and other Atlanteans usually wear little or no additional clothing in arctic conditions. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that Atlanteans live on the ocean floor and are used to cold currents. Their bigger issue is suffocating in the open air, not freezing.

* In ''[[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWhoNEDAS1E1BloodOfTheDaleksPartOne Blood Of The Daleks]]'', Lucie invokes this. She claims that since she's used to going clubbing wearing ridiculously skimpy clothes (see Real Life below), the cold doesn't affect her, so she can attract the aliens' attention by [[ShowSomeLeg undoing a few buttons]]. It doesn't do her any good since the aliens in question are ''Daleks'' {{omnicidal maniac}}s who [[NotDistractedByTheSexy aren't interested in scantily-clad young women]].

** [[VideoGame/TombRaiderUnderworld]], Lara in the final level, dives into the Arctic Ocean, with a thermal wetsuit. Though you can later replay the level wearing a regular wetsuit, which leaves her legs and some of her cheeks exposed.

** [[VideoGame/RiseOfTheTombRaider]] has Lara traveling through Siberia for much of the game, in practical winter clothes. Until she is captured, where her captures take said clothes away from her, leaving her in a long sleeve shirt and some pants. During her escape from her captures, she jumps into a partially frozen lake and the game treats it as her almost drowning as being worse for her, rather than the sub-zero water she was in. After that, she spends the rest of the game in an old Soviet army coat, with no clothes, or a hat, in spite of making several more jaunts into bodies of water and climbing icy ledges.

* ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' has Mario running through the ice and snow wearing nothing but his shirt and overalls and is not at all bothered by the wintry environment. However, one ice level has water that is so cold that it damages Mario on contact and sends him flying as if he landed in lava. There's another body of water in the same level that is not as cold, but cold enough to sap Mario's health if he stays in it.
* Averted in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' which has very intense sunlight on a tropical island. Should Mario lose his hat, he'll start taking damage from standing in direct sunlight since nothing is protecting his head from it. Moving towards shade like those made from a tree is a temporary measure until you can get Mario's hat back.

* Spectacularly mocked (in conjunction with {{stripperiffic}} female outfits) in ''Webcomic/RPGWorld''. Cherry and Diane complain about the cold as they cross a snowy mountain. Hero sympathizes, because he's wearing short sleeves. Close-up of Cherry (in her shorts and sleeveless shirt) and Diane (in her quipao/cocktail dress thing) shivering. Cherry further {{Lampshades}} the trope by [[FourthWallObserver complaning about]] [[MaleGaze the male, 13-25 target demographic]]

* The infamous "Forty Below Club" at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. Not a club per se, but a longstanding tradition of students stripping down to their underwear in the middle of winter and ''quickly'' taking a photo near the university sign as it displays the temperature, which regularly plunges to -40 degrees in subarctic Fairbanks.

* In ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', there's a group of survivalist pirates on Hoth, a frigid planet, who go half-naked to show that they've mastered the cold. Imperial characters can learn their technique. Of course, as standard for [=MMORPGs=], player characters don't suffer any ill effects regardless of how they dress for the cold, or the intense sunshine on Tatooine, or the industrial cesspool that is Quesh.

* Comicbook/RedSonja (depicted in the page pic) averts and plays this straight, depending on the writer and artist of the story. The better writers will have her wearing several layers of fur when she is in a snow-covered realm. The worst ones will have her marching through the snow in a ChainmailBikini without even as much as [[PrettyInMink the still revealing fur cloak]] seen above. This is played straight and then averted in the {{Furry|Comic}} parody, ''Red Shetland'', where the title character dresses in that exact way through a wintry forest, until she stays in a farm house where the elderly matron makes an appropriate suit for the weather, which Red accepts with grace and her Stag lover agrees that it looks great on her.

** Played straight in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', where the Digidestined are scattered across File Island, with Taichi notably in nothing but underwear and sneakers in a snowy climate. He does find his clothes fairly quickly, though. {{Deconstructed}} in the same episode episode where Yamato, dressed in an outfit that would be all right for milder climates, enters the snowy area and quickly becomes sick and feverish.
