** It isn't entirely clear-cut, but good characters will often smoke slender cigars, and evil characters fat ones. Since Cuba is under a trade embargo from the US, anyone in American media who smokes Cuban cigars is guaranteed to be some stripe of sleazebag.

** In stoner friendly productions, a good smoker is someone that sticks to mostly soft natural psychoactives (Marijuana, Salvia, mushrooms, etc) and the occasional LSD, but this only applies when contrasted with someone that does hard drugs like Meth, crack or Angel Dust.
* [[CigarChomper Characters who smoke lots of Cigars]] are some combination of {{Badass}}, {{Jerkass}} and rich. Generally, the CorruptCorporateExecutive and Rebel will smoke cigars. If the smoker is out of shape and well-dressed, then they're evil or at least a self-important jerk (unless they're UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill). If the smoker is muscle-bound and wearing rough clothing, they're generally either morally gray or heroic badasses. A woman [[FreudWasRight who smokes a cigar]] is usually TheVamp.

** In ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', Desire not only smokes all the time, but he/she is apparently just ''lighting'' its cigarettes ''constantly''. This is possibly a subtle ShoutOut to OscarWilde: "''A cigarette is the perfect type of a perfect pleasure. It is exquisite, and it leaves one unsatisfied.''" A perfect habit for the incarnation of desire.

* The ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' smoke in the first film. It's not necessarily ''[[SmokingIsCool cool]]'', but it does help ground the heroes as working-class stiffs.

*** {{Wolverine}} used to smoke cigars, but eventually gave up the habit, specifically directly after losing his adamantium to {{Magneto}}'s cruelty; his healing power got extremely taxed during that incident, which may have something to do with it (in-universe, at least). Paraphrasing:

* Sarah Connor has quit smoking by time of ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles''. Prone to lighting up in T2, one episode shows her in a bar proving the habit well and truly kicked. Just as well for her, too, since one of the things she missed while time-travelling was California's smoking ban.
