* The ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' fic ''Porte-Boner'' includes an Akuma named The Hipsteur, described as "a man in impossibly skinny jeans, an improbably large handlebar mustache, an incredibly rustic-looking snapback, and seventy or eighty scarves demolishing a McDonalds with a powerful blast of enchanted Pabst Blue Ribbon, and leaving in its wake an artisanal hand-squeezed vegan juice bar," who states that his mission is to "make sure Paris is a city you probably haven't heard of." He proves hilariously easy for Ladybug and Chat Noir to defeat - they spend the whole "battle" having a conversation over coffee while dealing with hangovers, repeatedly distracting him by directing him to record shops, bike shops, internet cafes, etc, before finally distracting him with a coffee (which he actually offers to ''pay them'' for) and destroying the akumatized object (a credit card bill addressed to his parents).

She talks about raiding a thrift store for a new wardrobe for school, watches not-mainstream-but-not-really-obscure movies like ''Film/{{Akira}}'' and ''Film/CannibalHolocaust'', and her playlist seems to consist only of slow, acoustic guitar music. She's not "in your face" about it though.

Sometime in the late [[TheNineties 1990s]] - [[TurnOfTheMillennium early 2000s]], the term hipster was dusted off and applied to a new generation that expressed the old hipster ideals in new ways. They were now predominantly middle-class, urban, white 20-something-year-olds interested in alternative culture: left-of-center politics, [[AlternativeRock alternative music]], independent films, thrift-store or vintage fashion, [[IProduct Apple products]], and a diet of locally-grown, organic or vegetarian/vegan food.

In TheNewTens, self-identified hipsters (if such a thing can even be found, as no one seems willing to call themselves by this name) view themselves as intellectuals who reject the mainstream and carefully define their own identities, taking [[{{Postmodernism}} a buffet-style approach]] to elements of other cultures and subcultures. Your typical hipster outfit will appropriate and/or cannibalize elements from the punk, hippie and rave scenes, plus [[TheNineties '90s]] [[{{Grunge}} geek-chic]], and some token from a non-Western culture; lacking the ''[[{{Postmodernism}} raison d'etre]]'' of any of these subcultures, the hipster will instead use [[DeadpanSnarker an air of sarcasm]] to tie the ensemble together (the '60s hippie did much the same, only without the irony). Hipsters' musical tastes are eclectic but generally centered around such genres as Indie Rock, IndiePop, BaroquePop, JanglePop, AlternativeHipHop, AlternativeCountry, HeavyMetal, GarageRock, PostRock, PunkRock, and minimalist {{Techno}}. Particular bands hipsters tend to enjoy include Music/{{Radiohead}}, Music/ArcadeFire, Music/BeachHouse, Music/BelleAndSebastian, Music/JensLekman, Music/AnimalCollective, Music/JoannaNewsom, Grizzly Bear, Dr. Dog, Music/BestCoast, and all Music/{{Elephant 6}} Collective bands (especially Music/NeutralMilkHotel), although only knowing those bands is only [[Franchise/GIJoe half the battle]] as an obscure and eclectic taste in music is preferred. ''[[http://pitchfork.com Pitchfork]]'', a music blog, is probably the most important hipster taste-maker and gate-keeper of the past decade.

It should be noted that [[DontShootTheMessage while these bands may be popular among hipsters, this doesn't make the bands themselves 'hipster bands']]. Conversely, a nominal 'hipster band' may actually be abandoned by hipsters if it [[ItsPopularNowItSucks becomes too "mainstream"]]. (Arcade Fire, for instance, were written off by many once they found mainstream popularity from Grammy nominations and soundtrack appearances in movies like ''Film/WhereTheWildThingsAre'' and ''Film/TheHungerGames''.) Additionally, a good portion of bands loved by hipsters actively reject the sarcasm, snobbery, and trendiness that often go along with hipster culture. Arcade Fire have been known to throw in [[TakeThat jabs]] at them in their songs ("they will eat right out of your hand/using great big words that they don't understand!") and indie folk group BonIver outright defied the label by recording an ultra-sincere, proudly cheesy {{autotune}}d PowerBallad for their second album.

From this was derived the strawman hipster of numerous parodies: A person who spends $60 on a new, designer-brand T-shirt which was faux-aged to look like something you could buy for $2 at Goodwill. A person whose taste in music is calculated to win "Whose iPod playlist is most obscure?" contests, and who disowns their favorite band for being played on mainstream radio. A person who, upon admitting that he or she partakes in any form of mainstream entertainment -- especially anything with a [[DeepSouth "redneck" stigma]] (like UsefulNotes/{{NASCAR}}, {{Music/Nickelback}} or UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts) -- claims that s/he's only "[[SoBadItsGood enjoying it ironically]]". An educated rich kid who [[SlummingIt superficially denies his privilege]] even as he flaunts his cultural capital. A person who [[HypocriticalHumor mocks every other hipster he sees]] but vehemently denies being a hipster him or herself. In short: ''that jerk who thinks he's better than you because he's so aggressively different''.

A person whose taste in music is calculated to win "Whose iPod playlist is most obscure?" contests, and who disowns their favorite band for being played on mainstream radio. A person who thumbs his nose at fans of ScienceFiction or {{Fantasy}}. A person who, upon admitting that he or she partakes in any form of mainstream entertainment -- especially anything with a [[DeepSouth "redneck" stigma]] (like UsefulNotes/{{NASCAR}}, {{Music/Nickelback}} or UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts) -- claims that s/he's only "[[SoBadItsGood enjoying it ironically]]". An educated rich kid who [[SlummingIt superficially denies his privilege]] even as he flaunts his cultural capital. A person who [[HypocriticalHumor mocks every other hipster he sees]] but vehemently denies being a hipster him or herself. In short: ''that jerk who thinks he's better than you because he's so aggressively different''.

* For one ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'' episode, Gordo starts acting like this after suddenly becoming obsessed with 50's Lounge music, particularly Music/FrankSinatra and the Rat Pack. After Lizzie accidentally popularizes "Rat Pack Culture" with the rest of the school, he quits it in disgust of it's new-found popularity. When she and Miranda try to apologize, he blames them for ruining his new interest, calls them "mindless trendoids, following the heard" and leaves them to fly RC planes, a hobby he clearly has no interest in, but puts up with because it's unpopular. He eventually relents when he realizes what a jerk he's being and returns to help them with their Lounge themed school dance, delivering the [[AnAesop Aesop]] that hating something just for it's popularity is just as bad as liking it just for it's popularity.

* Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" is all about finding hipster vintage clothes at thrift stores and showing them off at a trendy club. It also takes a poke at straw hipsters who buy faux vintage fashions from boutique stores.
