* The Tourist role in ''VideoGame/NetHack'' starts with a Hawaiian shirt and an expensive camera. If a shopkeeper sees any character wearing a Hawaiian shirt (this can be avoided by wearing armor over it), they'll charge one-third more for items and [[WeBuyAnything pay one-third less for anything the character sells them]] (Tourists always get that penalty until level 15, regardless of whether they're seen wearing the shirt). The presumed reason is that the shopkeepers see them as suckers and thus change the prices.

The shirt, incidentally, is one of the (lesser) reasons Tourists are considered MagikarpPower -- they're enchantable for a few extra armor points, but [[CommonplaceRare unreasonably hard to find]] for the other classes, who don't start with one.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}}'' did this himself for a case. A GenreSavvy lady realized right away she was looking at a cop.

* ''Film/{{Water 1985}}''. Our introduction to the Governor of Cascara is MichaelCaine tending his marijuana crop in a floral shirt, a clear sign he is GoingNative. Subverted though in that the next scene has him insisting on getting dressed formally to handle the CLF's two-man "insurrection". However this is suggested to be because he is a ''[[IAmVeryBritish British]]'' governor.

* [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Tourist Outfit]] in ''VideoGame/SleepingDogs'' makes Wei Shen look like one, gaudy Hawaiian shirt, Panama Hat and all. The description says it "adjusts prices accordingly" and it's not kidding; while wearing it, every vendor and salesperson in Hong Kong inflates their prices to ''160%'' of their base price, superseding any discounts you might have earned, making it a useless JokeItem.

* CollegeHumor's "Hardly Working" group had a sketch where a character took a vacation day...and proceeded to come in and annoy his colleagues anyway. He wore a Hawaiian shirt, sunglasses, and shorts. Another character invited him to a strip club, and was also wearing a shirt like this.

* ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'': Chuckles is usually wearing one (a shirt that is, not a tourist). He is also the Joes' best undercover operative. A frequently mentioned point is that most people would never imagine an undercover operative to stick out like a sore thumb as he does.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Hurricanes}}'': [[BigBad Stavros Garkos]] had a scene wearing one in one episode. (Noticeable because he usually dresses like a ManOfWealthAndTaste) He actually wasn't on vacation but on a business trip trying to [[CorruptCorporateExecutive persuade]] a nation's regent to allow him to extract oil.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic:'' Rarity and Sweetie Belle's father is seen dressed like this plus a straw hat and everything in the episode "Sisterhooves Social". Their mother is clad in the equally stereotypical tennis outfit. The reason for the outfits is that the two are leaving on a one-week vacation. It didn't help that his FABULOUS moustache earned him a comparison to Series/MagnumPI
* In ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'', Rocko and Heffer dress like this to visit France.

* During the preshow for Creator/CirqueDuSoleil's ''KOOZA'', one of the performers plays an obnoxiously enthusiastic audience member who fits this trope to a tee. He's referred to as "The American Tourist" in the program -- though, at least in the U.S. tour, there's a joke in which the emcee reveals the tourist is ''Canadian'', which is perhaps an in-joke regarding the company's home country (and Canada, after all, ''is'' part of North America).
