Added DiffLines:

* The ''Series/MurdochMysteries'' episode "Master Lovecraft" portrays the teenaged Creator/HPLovecraft as a member of a coterie of morbid, rebellious youths who wear funeral clothes and read a lot of Creator/BramStoker and Creator/EdgarAllanPoe.


Added DiffLines:

** In the AprilFoolsDay alternate universe, [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp.php?id=27 Sarah is a goth]]. WordOfGod is that the above may be a factor there as well.
** Minor character Liz is also a goth, as is her ex?-boyfriend ... sometimes. When we [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-07-09 first see him]] he's decidedly ungoth, revealing that his former goth-act was just that, and now he'd found another one. He [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-01-07 goes back to the goth look later]].

* Lili Zanotto from ''Psychonauts'' matches in this trope in style and general attitude, being aloof and brooding and wearing dark clothing and makeup.
* Every major entry in the ''Saints Row'' franchise has had some kind of gothic representation. The second game had fat and skinny goths patrolling the streets of the university district, the third game had an entire gang of Cyberpunk goths known as "The Deckers." Both 3 and 4 had Matt Miller, a goth hacker and one of the youngest members of the gang. Even the player can become a full blown goth - an entire store is devoted to this, known as "Nobody Loves Me." A thinly veiled parody of Hot Topic.

* Goth is not a religious thing, but a secular youth culture based on a shared taste in music, books, and some fashion much like The Mods of the 1960's. However, one of the things that is very goth is open mindedness. Therefore, people such as [[UsefulNotes/NeoPaganism Neopagans]] and yes, even [[UsefulNotes/{{Satanism}} Satanists]] found themselves drawn into the creation of the early scene as they often felt like outsiders in "normal" society, and are still prevalent today. This can lead to nasty stereotyping that all goths are 'devil worshippers'; however this is still a rather large minority of goths. Despite these people being a minority, their presence is one of the things that make the modern scene as distinct and colourful as it is. The 'open minded' part of being goth has also lead to the subculture having a higher than average number of gay, queer, or trans individuals and UsefulNotes/{{BDSM}} enthusiasts.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' has the episode "The Gothowitz Deviation" featuring Howard and Raj attempting to dress as Goths, in order to date one from a local Goth Bar. At first it went fairly well, but it quickly went downhill when both were too nerdy at heart to keep up their disguises.

* Tomoko Kuroki from ''Manga/NoMatterHowILookAtItItsYouGuysFaultImNotPopular'' may not dress like a Goth, but I kid you not her mindset is closest to one. Though that long, untamed hair and permanent [[CreepyShadowedUndereyes shadows under her eyes]] does this style justice.

to:

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' has [[PunnyName Oka Ruto]], the shy and somewhat odd President of the Occult Club. She wears gloves and stockings with a spider web design, and has dedicated her life to finding the supernatural. WordOfGod says the inspiration for her came about when someone suggested a goth girl rival. However, as a rival, she will have to be dealt with by our VillainProtagonist. The other members of the Occult Club also have elements of this.

* Cassie, the protagonist from ''ComicBook/HackSlash''. She's a Lone Psycho {{Stripperiffic}} Monster Slaying {{Goth}} {{Badass}} ActionGirl. [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Yes, it's as awesome as it sounds]]. And apart from being ''very'' snarky, she's also TheLadette.

** While the stigma against goths is dying down a bit, there's still a trend of hatred towards goths (and [[EmoTeen emos]]) online. Unlike previous cases of goth prejudice, which is based on misconceptions of goths being [[DarkIsEvil murderous]] [[EveryoneIsSatanInHell Satanist]] [[TheNewRockAndRoll criminals]], online prejudice and cyberbullying seems to be based mostly (if not purely) on stereotypes about goths being [[{{Wangst}} Wangsty]], [[SelfHarm self-harming]] teens who seek attention by being [[MemeticMutation edgy]] and dressing differently. In the most ''extreme'' cases of UnfortunateImplications, online haters will claim to hate goths for being gay or [[{{Crossdresser}} crossdressers]].

* As opposed to her comics persona (a perky Southern belle) Rogue in ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' was given this sort of personality because the creators thought it would fit a girl who was BlessedWithSuck.

Added DiffLines:

* Blanche in ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh'', her official stereotype is the SouthernBelle, but her black clothing and make-up, cold personality and general attire puts her easily in the Goth too (of course it helps that she's a zombie).
* The character of Janice in ''WesternAnimation/CreepSchool'' is Goth, as her heavy make-up, black dress and personality show.
