* In KDrama ''Series/MyLoveFromTheStar" main character Do Min-Joon takes this trope further by repeatedly wearing a towel while showering, although this can be explained by the fact that he is secretly an alien.

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'': Agatha actually invokes the trope while on the Corbettite Railways, using it as a ploy to distract anybody entering her compartment, giving time for Krosp (and later Wooster) to take them out if they happen to be hostile. Unluckily, all those coming to visit are either allies or just train attendants, and thus she gives each of them an eyeful for nothing. [[spoiler:She has pretty much given up on the pretense when an ''actual'' assassin shows up.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Parodied (like everything else) in ''Series/AngieTribeca''. To enter a locker room, Geils and Tanner cover themselves up with bath towels... over their street clothes. Later, the villain whips the towels off them and runs off while the two cover themselves in embarrassment, even though they're fully dressed.

Added DiffLines:

* One episode of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' has Sora and Mimi trying to escape and fighting Cockatorimon after escaping from the showers, wearing nothing but towels. This was an example of GettingCrapPastTheRadar since the US brodcasting also shows it.

* Played humourously with on ''Series/InPlainSight'', where the main character's boyfriend asks for a towel from inside his shower. She goes to look for them, she finds them all missing except a washcloth, explaining a towel filled suitcase earlier in the season which was thought to contain drugs. She leaves the washcloth hanging on the handle and joins him in the shower.

** One particular scene (which became {{Fanservice}} fuel to nearly all the girls watching it) near the end of the episode "Bragging Rights" had Odd dancing around for "breaking the record of fastest shower"]], while wearing only a ModestyTowel. For some reason, many fangirls wanted that towel to fall off.

** Leela herself wears her towel wrapped around her entire torso in the same scene, but nobody notices that she's a SweetPollyOliver. (Well, Zapp seems to notice [[SweetOnPollyOliver sunconsciously]].)
