* There's a couple in ''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway'', set in Britain. It should be noted that this takes place in a community of sewer rats - maybe rat tourists would be at serious risk if they visited legitimate above-ground landmarks?

* At the end of ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', the Genie becomes one of these after being freed, complete with Goofy cap. This is actually a reference to a (sadly no longer shown) short film that played in the guest queue for The Magic of Disney Animation at Walt Disney World's Disney-MGM Studios called "Back To Neverland," where Creator/RobinWilliams played a HawaiianShirtedTourist (with the Goofy cap).

** The first description of his clothing in ''TCOM'' shows him wearing knee-length shorts and a hideously-multicoloured shirt, ie. standard HawaiianShirtedTourist attire.

* Jack Carver of ''FarCry'' for PC wears one of these. Justified in the fact he was only supposed to drop off and pick up the journalist who paid him, not get stuck fighting shitloads of mercenaries.
** Said mercenaries also refer to him as ''[[IconicOutfit "You! In the shirt!"]]''
* In ''[[KatamariDamacy We ♥ Katamari]]'', you can roll up an "American Guy", who is about three times as wide as the average person, wears a Hawaiian shirt and a baseball cap, and has a camera hanging from his neck.
* Tommy Vercetti from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity''.
** [[AmoralAttorney Ken]]: "Hey, I loved [[TheEighties 1978]] too, but, y'know, this isn't gonna be a beer and strippers do."

* Kahn, the lead [[EliteBeatAgents Elite Beat Agent]] wears one of these shirts (and a strange expression) during the intro to the Material Girl stage set on a tropical island... even though the other agents are the ones going to the island, not him. (And, in Kahn Mode, he doesn't wear it when he's actually on the island himself.)
** On that topic, in the first ''{{Ouendan}}'' game, there are some tourists in the FestivalEpisode that help you out.
* ''WiiSportsResort'', where the Miis are wearing Hawaiian Shirts during some of the more casual sports. Fitting as they are pretty much on vacation on a Tropical Island resort.

* In the TwistedMetal-esque Playstation game ''VideoGame/RogueTrip", one of the passengers you pick up is a stereotypical fat, obnoxious, HST.
* ''[[ToejamAndEarl Toejam and Earl in Panic on Funkotron]]'' featured HSTs as enemies that used their cameras to stun you if your eyes were open.
* MaxPayne in ''Max Payne 3'' combines this with a shaved head as a disguise for his infiltration of the slums. He notes its ridiculousness and the fact that it makes him stand out like a sore thumb amongst the locals.

* Comes up at least twice in the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, both times while dealing with covert operations. Once in the ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce'' series (which had a shirt that changed colors and patterns whenever the wearer wanted), once in the XWingSeries.

The stereotypical dress for a tourist/someone on vacation (especially your type 2 {{Eagleland}} one) is a very specific set of ImpossiblyTackyClothes; a Hawaiian shirt, sandals (sometimes [[AndThatsTerrible with socks]]), and often a Panama Hat and sunglasses as well. Note that [[PerpetualTourist the dress can be permanent for a character with a carefree personality]], and it doesn't seem to depend upon tropical weather for a character to dress this way. Tourist characters may also have a bulky camera hung around their neck. If male, his DistaffCounterpart is likely to have a pristine white tennis outfit.
