* 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.

Naturally, this way.is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] throughout the franchise. He ''really'' likes that shirt.



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

* In ''Tourist Season'' by Creator/CarlHiaasen, the body of one of the victims of "El Fuego" is discovered wearing a flower-print shirt, baggy Bermuda shorts and black wraparound sunglasses and drenched in coconut-scented suntan lotion, none of which he usually wore in life.

* 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).

* 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."

(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.

* 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.
