* The [[LonersAreFreaks Lone Psycho]] Goth: At best, this character may have an obnoxious level of {{Wangst}}. At worst, this character will be well off the deep end of LonersAreFreaks, a card-carrying StrawNihilist, and may even be AxCrazy. It's worth pointing out that this formerly obscure stereotype was [[TheNewRockAndRoll pounced upon and dragged into the spotlight]] after the UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} tragedy, simply because the shooters wore black trenchcoats and were erroneously reported to have listened to Music/MarilynManson (who is, contrary to popular misconceptions, not related to goth at all whatsoever).

* Wiki/{{Uncyclopedia}}'s article for goths describes them as "[[IThoughtItMeant a violent East Germanic tribe of barbarians]] who proved to be a great nuisance for the Roman Empire from the 1970's to 1990's, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking primarily with their bad taste in music and dark eyeliner]]." It comes complete with a photoshopped picture of American Gothic (as goths) and lists the "Emoae tribe" as their chief enemies.

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity'' has Konstantinos Smith, a studio guest on in-game public-radio station VCPR as a parody of a stereotypical Goth.

* Dark Magic throughout history has always been seen as negative and gritty, wielders of said magic like [[GothGirlsKnowMagic Witches]] are often depicted to be early Goth characters.Sadly these stories were to blame for the murder of many potentially innocent women back in Ancient times.

* In the children's chapter book ''Waylon! One Awesome Thing'', Waylon's sister, Charlotte, has taken to calling herself "Neon," dying her hair and painting her nails black and generally behaving as a gloomy, nihilistic goth. [[spoiler:However, it's all an act so that she can get some peace from the cliques that have started forming at her school.]]

* Lucy Loud from ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' is extremely goth- she dresses in black, is obsessed with all things morbid and otherworldly, speaks in a monotone and writes depressing poetry.

* Lucy Loud from ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' is extremely goth- an eight-year-old who breathes the idea of "goth"- she dresses in and dyes her hair black, is obsessed with all things morbid and otherworldly, otherworldly like fortune-telling and the occult, keeps creepy animals like bats as pets, speaks in a monotone and writes depressing poetry.poetry. Noticeably, this has nothing to do with her family life; she very much loves her family and they her even if even they're creeped out at times by how far she takes her lifestyle, and flashbacks show she had this mindset even when she was younger.

* ''Manga/SoulEater'' could be best described as "gangsta goth", incorporating urban American-style themes (like hip-hip music and graffiti) with gothic touches (like GothSpirals, monsters, and dark colors). A lot of characters live up to the series' gothic style as well, like Death the Kid, who is literally the son of (the series' equivalent to) TheGrimReaper.
** Speaking of the characters, [[GothGirlsKnowMagic Arachne]] submerges herself in this style. But then again her theme is that of a Spiders, so no surprise their.

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.
