* Technically speaking, in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 3rd Edition or ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', if you have cold resistance 6 you're completely immune to any natural cold. Barbarians automatically gain damage reduction as they level up. The interplay of the damage reduction rules and the cold weather rules require some handwaving, but it is very common for players take advantage of this to have barbarians walking around the arctic in a loincloth. Also note the "Endure Elements" spell, which does the same thing, but ''only'' applies to weather.
** The artwork for the ''TabletopGame/DarkSun'' setting, set on a desert planet, had pretty much everyone running around in loincloths and not much else. According to WordOfGod, one of the reasons they picked a warm climate for the setting (as opposed to, say, a frozen tundra) was to better justify the fanservice...except they apparently failed to distinguish between a ''humid'' warm climate (where it would indeed be appropriate to wear skimpy clothes) and an ''arid'' one (where it is very much not). Oops.

* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' - Lotus is, for [[{{Fanservice}} no explicable reason]], wearing a [[{{Stripperiffic}} skimpy bellydancer outfit]] throughout the game. When the party discovers a walk-in freezer, she flatly refuses to enter. Way too cold! [[spoiler: Naturally, they get accidentally locked in while she's outside.]]

* Ozy in ''WebComic/OzyAndMillie'' ''sometimes'' combats the winter weather by putting on a jumper. Which sounds like an aversion, until you take into account that he still doesn't bother with pants. Then again, he is an arctic fox.

Their class also went on a hiking expedition in a swamp in school-issued hiking uniforms consisting of short-shorts.

* Track and field athletes always wear relatively short clothing, and are always subject to the climate ([[CaptainObvious except on indoors tournaments]]) - so much that strong winds both invalidate new world records that might be set and hinder certain performances ([[FanDumb not that the audience cares]] - when Brazilian pole vaulter Fabiana Murer gave up her last attempt on the 2012 UsefulNotes/OlympicGames blaming on the wind, [[MemeticMutation jokes]] and [[InternetBackdraft complaints]] ensued as they felt it was a LameExcuse). However, running full speed increases your metabolism to ten times its normal rate, mitigating the heat loss from wearing so little in the cold.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freezer_Bowl The Freezer Bowl]], the coldest NFL game in terms of wind chill ever played, with the air temperature at -9 degrees and the wind chill at -37. Several of the Bengals players went sleeveless and even gloveless as an intimidation tactic. It certainly helped, as the Bengals would dominate the Chargers 27-7.

** The original ''VideoGame/TombRaider''. Lara wears khaki shorts and a T-shirt in the high Andes. And, in [[VideoGame/TombRaiderII the second game]], she wears khaki shorts and a bomber jacket in Tibet.
** In [[VideoGame/TombRaiderIII the third game]] and ''[[VideoGame/TombRaiderLegend Legend]]'' she actually wears trousers and a coat in cold environments. ''And'' when replaying completed levels, Lara can wear any of the outfits she has previously unlocked, regardless of impracticality (although the skimpy swimsuit is not wearable outside of the house level, possibly due to a programmer oversight).

** The original ''VideoGame/TombRaider''. Lara wears khaki shorts and a T-shirt in the high Andes. The only thing for protection she wore was a cloak in the opening cutscene. And, in [[VideoGame/TombRaiderII the second game]], she wears khaki shorts and a bomber jacket in Tibet.
** In [[VideoGame/TombRaiderIII the third game]] and ''[[VideoGame/TombRaiderLegend Legend]]'' she actually wears trousers and a coat in cold environments. She does take her coat off as a result of it catching on fire in one scene, but she is also clearly dressed in layers. ''And'' when replaying completed levels, Lara can wear any of the outfits she has previously unlocked, regardless of impracticality (although the skimpy swimsuit is not wearable outside of the house level, possibly due to a programmer oversight). As well in III, there is one part where Lara must traverse through a body of water in Antarctica where she stays under so long, she has to use a health pack or freeze to death.
** [[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.


Added DiffLines:

** [[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.

* In ''Film/{{Thor}}'' we meet the not-so friendly [[OurGiantsAreDifferent Frost Giants]], literal ice people who can extend the frost layer on their arms at will, shaping it like [[ShapeshifterWeapon swords or daggers]]. {{Justified|Trope}}, for they're beings ''native'' of the ice planet of Jotunheim. And let's not forget their local version of our lions, the [[NameToRunAwayFromReallyFast Frost Beasts]].

* Lampshaded and subverted in VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn, when Amiti joins the party, Karis ask him to PleasePutSomeClothesOn, apparently because it's going to be cold in Te Rya. which he does. Five guesses who complains about the cold in Te Rya.

** [[{{WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas}} Christmas Town]] also seems to play with this trope, but Sora wears [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire attire]] here (with a few [[BadassSanta modifications]] in the Final Mix version), which is a ''lot'' more suitable for cold weather than his normal attire. Though played straight with Donald and Goofy, who are respectively turned into a {{Mummy}} and a parody of FrankensteinsMonster; the Final Mix version fixed that by making them into a [[{{Snowlems}} snowduck]] and "half-dog, half reindeer", respectively.
** ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'' has an even more extreme example with the Snowgleam Wood in [[{{Disney/Fantasia}} Symphony of Sorcery]], which is a frozen lake surrounded with snow. It's exclusive to Riku, who wears a tank top and jeans in this game. What makes it more disturbing is that he can ''swim'' in the lake. Then again, they are in the Dream Worlds, where logic does not have to make sense, considering that Sora didn't need to use scuba gear or turn himself into a merman in Prankster's Paradise, and both boys [[{{Cyberspace}} weren't]] [[TwentyFourHourArmor even]] {{human|Aliens}} in The Grid. Not to mention [[spoiler: Riku himself being a Spirit Dream Eater...]]

** Gym Leader Candice has the shortest skirt of any character or {{NPC}} in the history of ''Pokemon'' and maybe even Nintendo as a whole. So, [=GameFreak=] made her live in the SlippySlideyIceWorld, and even had her walk through waist-deep snow to let you into Snowpoint Temple after the player obtained the National Dex. It was {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in more then one manga, where they either question her or she has a cold at least once.

* 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). [[BadAss 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.

* ''[[FanFic/StarWarsParanormalitiesTrilogy Star Wars: Paranormalities]]'' plays with this trope.
** Chapter 8 of Episode I, which has Zolph and Grein on the ice planet Polus, has a moment where this is subverted. Zolph is dressed properly for the planet's cold weather and Grein is dressed up in her usual attire, which aside from her scarf, is mostly casual urban gear with a short-sleeved shirt. However, while Zolph is still freezing, Grein isn't affected much, because as a Chiss, she's biologically adapted to lower temperatures.
** Juganak, a large, muscular Miraluka in the employ of the Valkoran Empire introduced in Episode II, is seen without a shirt on most of time. According to some field reports, he has dressed the same way even on worlds where most humans or near-humans should not, such as [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Hoth]] and [[LethalLavaLand Mustafar]].

* The Rider Suits worn by the pilots in ''Anime/CrossAnge'' are clearly not designed for high-altitude dogfights in open cockpits. Regardless, none of the characters seem bothered by the freezing temperatures and harsh winds one would encounter traveling at such heights and high speeds, without a helmet and exposed cleavage, stomach, and thighs. Averted by Embyro's personal squadron, who wear [[LatexSpaceSuit full flight suits]] with helmets.
