* ''Manga/{{Zipang}}'', the story of a 21st century JMSDF destroyer being stranded in the middle of WW2, naturally gives us soldiers in fancy white Japanese naval dress uniforms by the truckload. ''The'' Man in White of the series, however, is Lt. Commander Takumi Kusaka, whose dress whites are his ''only'' uniform.

* Shiromujō from ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'' sure does live up to his name, clad in white from his NiceHat to BadassLongrobe to MysticalWhiteHair. It both serves as indication of his association with [[WhiteShirtOfDeath death]] and as contrast to his brother [[TheMenInBlack Kuromujō]].

* Both Michael and Hugo from ''Manga/InnocentsShounenJuujigun'' qualify. Micheal wears all white church boy robes, which is very notable next to the black capes and earthy tones most of the Children's Crusade don. Hugo, at least in the first volume, stays perpetually dressed in the mostly white uniform of the Knights Templar.

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.

Of course, perhaps the reason it signifies that the character is up to no good is precisely because white is supposed to signify that a character ''is'' good, [[LightIsGood since that is the colour most associated - at least in the West - with an upstanding, honest, kind, or moral person; their clothing is as immaculate and pure as their soul.]] Having the Man in White be a ''villain'' [[LightIsNotGood turns this on its head]] and may evoke ideas of MostDefinitelyNotAVillain or SuspiciouslySpecificDenial.
