** The character Tiny Attorney, when not nude, is seen only in a white suit, since he is both a [[FatSweatySouthernerInAWhiteSuit Fat, Sweaty Southerner]] and a SimpleCountryLawyer. In fact, he wears ''two'' (well, one and a half) white suits at once, because the attorney is actually the stunted upper half of a man [[ConjoinedTwins sprouted from the abdomen]] of a large simpleton.

* The Man in White of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros'' is Pete White, who is almost always seen in his trademark double-breasted white suit with pink shirt ("[[PinkIsForSissies It was red when I bought it.]]") and red jeweled pendant. There is no particular symbolism to his wardrobe, except that it is a cornerstone of his identity and matches his [[HeroicAlbino albinism]]. (He used to pretend this made him a [[TheGrotesque misunderstood freak]], but with the sort of company he keeps no one pays much attention.)
