* In the ECComics Science-Fiction [=SuspenStory=] "What Fur?!", in a space-faring future where skunks are being driven to extinction due to demand for their pelts, a furrier seeks to make a killing on a little-explored small planet which is crawling with skunks. Unfortunately, this planet turns out also to have giant furry aliens who like to wear human skins around their necks.

* In ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Brothers In Arms]]'' by LoisMcMasterBujold, Miles Vorkosigan buys a "cat blanket" which is made of fur. The subversion is that the blanket is a genetically engineered living organism. It doesn't shed, is self-cleaning, lives via photosynthesis or microwave absorption, purrs, and snuggles up.
** Still, Miles, Ivan [[spoiler:and later Mark]], are by turns delighted and creeped out by it.

* Even though ''Series/{{Dallas}}'' and ''{{Dynasty}}'' started in 1978 and 1981 respectively, it seemed in later years, these shows and their spinoffs gave most of the fur coats to the RichBitch characters.
* In the musical episode of Series/XPlay, after receiving lucrative contracts to produce their own games and stressing out factory workers to make it, Adam and Morgan go from snarky video game reviewers to rich snobs. The first shot of them after the factory scene starts with a close up of a pair of high-heels stepping onto the sidewalk, panning up a fur coat, and then to Adam's head. Morgan joins him a second later in a business suit.

* Mallory Archer from ''{{Archer}}'' has a regular account at a furrier. Definitely a RichBitch, often seen in furs.

* A rather ghoulish example happens in one ComicBook/{{Spider Man}} story, where a gangster's wife brags about her new coat, which she believes was taken from Tigra. (Her husband seemingly convinced her that he had killed and skinned Tigra, although everyone present at the event realized he was a BadLiar trying to make himself look big.)

* An episode of ''{{Braceface}}'' deals with a short tiff between Sharon and Miranda when the former plans to participate in a fashion show wearing fur clothes. In the end, Sharon decides to accept Miranda's decision, whereas Miranda has switched out all the real fur for faux fur.

* ComicBook/EmmaFrost from ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' is a definite RichBitch (although she wasn't as much of an actual bitch as she suddenly became). Her most famous outfit has a cape with a huge white fox collar (assuming this outfit was made for real). However, she first appeared in 1980. Yet when she turned into a hero, it was the early 1990s, and her outfits didn't include fur.

* Suzu from ''PeacemakerKurogane'', during the sequel, after he becomes an AxCrazy DepravedHomosexual. Just to cement the fact that he's evil, he wears a long, black fur robe (without wearing any clothes inside).

* TamoraPierce prefaces at least one of her books with a foreword telling animal rights groups that wearing animal furs is inevitable in a middle ages-based fantasy setting, and doesn't necessarily condone them in real life.
