** The [[{{Animorphism}} heron laguz]] royal family in the ''Videogame/FireEmblemTellius'' subseries wear long, pure white robes with gold accents. They're meant to be ethereal, unearthly beautiful and pure, and as they're said to be the closest people on the continent to the [[PhysicalGod Goddess Ashera]], it's likely a case of WhiteAndGoldAreDivine.

* Most of JohnWoo's villains (Shing from ''Film/ABetterTomorrow'', Ko Ying Pui from ''A Better Tomorrow II'', and Mr. James Wong from the game ''{{Stranglehold}}'' among others) wear white, the better to show off the blood from the bullets they receive. The main heroic Creator/JohnWoo example, of course, is Ah Jong from the final showdown of ''Film/TheKiller'' (though then again, [[spoiler:he is the one out of the two heroes of the movie to die]].)

Added DiffLines:

* In a number of police departments, police officers above the rank of Lieutenant wear white shirts as part of their uniform. The NYPD is the most notable example of this, but other cities like Baltimore do the same as well.

* 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.

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.

* ''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.]]
