* ''VideoGame/SleepingDogs'' has the Tourist Outfit, which makes Wei Shen look like one, gaudy Hawaiian shirt and all. The description claims that it "adjusts prices accordingly" and it's not kidding: while wearing it, every vendor and salesperson in Hong Kong jacks up their prices by ''60%'' while canceling any discount bonuses you might have earned, making it a useless JokeItem.

* Jack Carver of ''VideoGame/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!"]]'' His VoiceWithAnInternetConnection also lampshades this at the start of the game, telling him that body armor would blend in with the environment much better than a bright red shirt.

The stereotypical dress for a tourist/someone on vacation (especially your {{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.

* Lots of people dress like this in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon''. No surprise, as the Alola region ''is'' heavily based on Hawai'i.

* ''[[TabletopGames/{{Rifts}} The Rifter 9½]]'' had a humorous {{Character Class|System}} devoted to this trope, with an entire chart for aliens in HughMann disguise, as [[NoTrueScotsman no true human]] could possibly be so hideous.
