** ''Platinum'' gives us a short scene where we find Maylene visiting Candice at Snowpoint. Note that Maylene wears a LeotardOfPower, some pants, is completely barefoot everywhere she goes, and the only way to Snowpoint City without flying is to march through a raging blizzard. She walked there and didn't notice a thing.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' lampshaded this and LimitedWardrobe hilariously in a cutscene wherein two characters who wear rather thin clothing (One of them bordering on {{Stripperiffic}}). Alphinaud stands there shivering... while Minfilia shows up in appropriate gear for the arctic weather.

** The last two stages from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'' are explicitly in the Antarctic (one in a speeding vehicle with an open rear hatch, the other out in the snow). None of the characters bother with a coat ([[WalkingShirtlessScene to]] [[{{Stripperiffic}} say]] [[SleevesAreForWimps the]] ''least''), and roughly a fourth are not even wearing shoes. A cutscene for the PlayStationVita version plays with it: the vast majority of the characters play it straight, except for Blanka. Following behind Sakura (in her usual uniform), Blanka is wrapped up in several scarves like a mummy, and is freezing his ''ass'' off.

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

** The "snowy peaks" might be justified though, Sonic ''is'' a hedgehog covered in fur and spikes. Not to mention real life hedgehogs does come out of hibernation every now and again during the winter. Usually to find food or a place to sleep. Besides, many mammals can do just fine in the snow. As for the lava... Uh... [[FridgeLogic Video game logic?]]



** Averted ''hard'' by a [[http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/11163/ mod]] that adds realistic temperature mechanics, demonstrating ''why'' said mechanics were omitted in the first place. At low levels, [[NintendoHard the frost will kill you faster than the bandits]], and leaving [[FirstTown Riverwood]] without some warm clothes is extremely ill-advised.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': Lin and O-Chul march through the frozen wastes of the dwarven homelands in the same clothing they wore down south in their near-tropical city. Lin says she can handle the cold due to fighting evil on the cold depths of the ocean floor, while O-Chul says his thoughts of justice and the fires of Hell keep him warm. Then they admit that their magic items also help.

* When the plot of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' eventually leads to the snowy Land of Iron, many of the characters are quite inappropriately dressed for the area. While some at least started wearing jackets or coats, the Leaf and Sand Village ninja are still wearing sandals, Sakura and Karin are still wearing biker/short shorts, Temari and Samui are still wearing a sort of dress/skirt exposing most of their legs, and the Raikage [[WalkingShirtlessScene continues to not wear anything on his upper body but a cloak that leaves 60% of his chest exposed]].

** In ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' Hinata has discarded her usual jackets for sleeveless blouses. Most of the film takes place in a snowy environment. The fact her clothes are ill suited for the weather are lampshaded by Naruto, however Hinata states that just is how her ninja clothes look.



* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''
** Characters occasionally dress for the weather, but usually walk around in their standard, summer-y outfits no matter what. For Misty, this involves a couple walks in snowy mountains wearing micro-shorts and a really short, sleeveless t-shirt. When "dressing for the weather", half the time she just puts on a jacket and continues walking around in shorts, too. Like all other Pokemon media, neither Dawn nor Candice spent a second of their time in snowy areas not wearing a short skirt, either.
** This is played with in many ways in ''Manga/PokemonSpecial''. Platinum faints due to the freezing cold, but Candice is just fine because she simply claims that nothing should get in the way of fashion. Maylene is also alright in her sleeveless shirt and bare feet, because running around keeps her warm. Later Platinum gets a coat, but takes it off when running also warms her up. When the three of them meet together, Candice dubs them as the "Thin-Clothed Trio".
** In ''Manga/PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure'', Candice actually subverts this trope ''once'': Hareta sees her sneezing the first time he sees her. After that, though, she goes back to playing the trope completely straight, not even bothering to put on that jacket she has tied around her waist.
