* Parodied in ''Series/{{Blackish}}'', when Bow and Dre are standing by the bathroom sink getting ready. Dre wears his in the feminine style, representing his conservative upbringing, while Bow's is in the masculine style, representing her carefree personality.
* In an episode of ''Series/ColdCase'', the second half of a gay couple emerges from the shower ''already'' wearing a towel around his waist, joining his partner, who is similarly clad. Despite the fact that by this point in their relationship, they'd likely be quite comfortable being naked around each other.

* Jerin from ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' is GenreSavvy enough to avert this - he puts on a "bathing gown" in order to be somewhat more clothed in case he meets one of the female guests of the house. [[spoiler: He does.]]

* One of the people you must possess in ''VideoGame/{{Geist}}'' is a woman taking a shower. After you scare her out of the shower, she wraps a towel around herself. After scaring her a bit more and possessing her, you have to go get dressed before she'll leave the locker room.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', Green Lantern visits an old friend of his and is introduced to his pretty fiancée, who had stepped out from the showers with nothing but a towel.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Madballs}}'' episode "Escape from Orb" had a scene where Slobulus and Aargh accidentally fire their ship's bathtub at the spaceship of Wolf Breath and the Badballs. Freakella isn't happy about this because she was going to take a bath, and is seen wearing a towel and a shower cap. Since the Madballs are [[{{Cephalothorax}} heads with arms and legs]] and therefore don't really have any visible naughty bits, this was most likely done for comedic effect rather than modesty.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', "Moon Over Minerva". Then again, this trope was applied to Ms. Mink every chance the writers got in the comics.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', "Moon Over Minerva".The ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' episode "Meet Minerva" start with [[MsFanservice Minerva Mink]] walking out of home with just a towel (and another for the head), causing an HelloNurse reaction (Tex Avery-styled) to males of every species, before bathing naked in a lake. Then again, this trope was applied to Ms. Mink every chance the writers got in the comics.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhUZOCRkPZY This]] Proactiv commercial features Creator/OliviaMunn materializing out of nowhere to the shock of a young man in a towel to tell him that Proactiv will clear up his face quicker than the cream he was about to use. His towel, of course, falls and Munn tries to back out of the room. [[DoubleStandard Now if the genders were reversed...]]

* Subverted in ''[[Literature/{{Foundation}} Prelude to Foundation]]''. Hari is dressed from the waist down. Dors is also wearing a towel from the waist down. One causes a bit more awkwardness.

* Another PG-13 Pixie Trix comics example: ''Webcomic/DangerouslyChloe'' parodies this when Triana confronts Teddy in the girl's locker room after his GenderBender shes's actually wearing three modesty towels: one worn boy-style around her hips, another around her bust and a third thrown over her shoulders like a cape. She's all covered up because she's convinced he's faking and is shocked to discover that he isn't.
