* In an advertisement for some credit card, a couple is inspired to throw an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party (with purchased sweaters, rather than actual homemade ones, but the awfulness of the sweaters still fit the spirit of this trope) upon seeing a couple at an ice rink wearing this kind of sweater.

* The ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' OVA had Ayeka attempt to knit on as a gift for Tenchi. She gets lost in a daydream and knits the thing so much longer than it should have been. She's never shown trying to give it to him, though.

* Given by Wally West (Franchise/TheFlash) to his wife one Christmas -- not to be worn, but as a reminder of her speech of what really mattered in giving. The sweater is actually store-bought, and a running joke in the story is wondering who buys the hideous things.

** One of the shorts featured in "Decemberween in July" is a music video by the Cheat for a song about "Seasonal Sweaters" performed by Marzipan. The video features a number of garish sweaters, many of which also have cheesy slogans on them (like "What Shopping?" and "Ho Hum").

* A fairly new tradition in the last few years has been to host "ugly sweater parties" around Christmastime, where you have to show up in the ugliest, tackiest, kitchiest Christmas sweater you have to hand (or some other form of equally gaudy and stupid-looking Christmas-themed attire).

** Gypsy makes a complete set of them in the ''Film/TheChristmasThatAlmostWasnt'' episode in the revival. There's nothing wrong with this batch... except for the fact that going by the initials knitted on them, each sweater was given to the wrong person. Jonah and the other bots like them anyway.

The Homemade Sweater From Hell is a sweater that is one step from being pixelated if it's on television - or otherwise garish. The sleeves might be different lengths, initials might be knitted into it in a bizarre fashion, it might be an awful color or an awful mix of colors, it might be a childish pattern in an adult sweater, or it might just be tacky. It might even be awfully itchy. And it was a gift from someone who picked it out or knitted it specially ([[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents most often parents and grandparents]]), so even if the character normally has taste, he'll have to wear it.

* Averted nicely with ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''. Mabel makes her own sweaters, and fans agree they actually look comfortable and some fans would wear them, given the chance. In fact, some have worn sweaters like this when cosplaying as Mabel.
