* Battler Ushiromiya from ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' wears a white suit, although he does also have a [[BringMyRedJacket red shirt]] underneath the jacket. If there is any symbolism there, it probably falls closer to the combination of BringMyRedJacket and WhiteShirtOfDeath. Either that, or it's to contrast [[WomanInBlack Beatrice]] and show which pieces he's playing in the HumanChess game they're having.

* Invoked in ''{{LightNovel/Durarara}}'' when somebody finally asks [[DressedToHeal Shinra Kishitani]] why he insists on wearing a lab coat ''everywhere''. Turns out that he wants to play the Man in White to his roommate Celty Strulsen's WomanInBlack.

In RealLife, white is usually the color for summer clothing, given the quality of the color that reflects all spectrums of visible light away and - as such - offers some relief from the merciless heat of the summer sun. It is not considered an ideal color for most other occasions, given how easy white cloth is to stain and how clothes that ''absorb'' heat are desirable in most other climates.

--> (Creator/PeterSellers as Grytpyppe-Thynne): No, I'm his brother Guinness, the ''Film/TheManInTheWhiteSuit''.

* ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' has the Composer portrayed this way (heck, he's more a Man Made of White than a Man Wearing White), but it seems the only people he really contacts [[spoiler: outside of his disguise as Joshua]] aren't weirded out by him. Admittedly, this could be due to those people's apparent natures anyway. The Conductor seems to maintain such utter composure just out of his respect for the Big C, and [[spoiler: Hanekoma's probably used to people like this. He's apparently one himself]].

* Inspector Cabanela in ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' wears a clean white coat to represent his spotless record. The only part of his garb that isn't white is his red scarf, which may actually come with bonus symbolism. [[spoiler: He does have a bloody spot on his record, letting Yomiel escape.]]

* Altair, Ezio, Connor, and Desmond all wear white in ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed''; a predominately white, hooded outfit with a bright scarlet sash seems to be the traditional Assassin's ensemble. Interestingly, this trope sees villainous usage as well; the [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI first game's]] villain, Robert de Sable, wears a white cloak and tabard (because he's a Templar Knight in the Crusades) and the [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII second game's]] villain, Rodrigo Borgia, dons a white robe once he (as in real-life history) becomes pope.

* In the reboot of ''VideoGame/{{Syndicate}}'', enemy officers have white armour, unlike the black and dark grey of Sergeants or normal grunts. Some boss Agents wear white too. [[spoiler: Merit also wears a white armour in the final battle.]]

* Paarfi of Roundwood, LemonyNarrator from the Literature/{{Dragaera}} series, once came to a public event dressed entirely in white as a political statement: that artists and authors embrace all Houses (which normally dress in ColorCodedForYourConvenience fashion) equally.

Added DiffLines:

* Every male ([[WomanInWhite and female]]) player in UsefulNotes/{{Wimbledon}} has to wear a white tennis uniform as a part of the tradition, and it's so SeriousBusiness that apparently even their ''underwear'' must be white. [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/tennis/rogerfederer/10943353/Roger-Federer-Wimbledons-all-white-dress-code-is-too-strict.html Roger Federer isn't amused.]]
