\n* Gary in ''Film/TheWorldsEnd'' certainly ''tries'' to look cool in his long black coat, but given how [[ManChild he refuses to grow up as he's reaching his forties]], it comes across as rather pathetic and hence falls a bit flat. It eventually graduates into a proper BadassLongcoat when [[spoiler:he becomes a sword-wielding post-apocalyptic hero in the film's epilogue.]]

* Detective Dick Gumshoe from ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series. Although he could TakeALevelInBadass when required of him, he'd lose it as soon as he was done.

* Some bandits in ''VideoGame/{{STALKER}}'' tend to use hooded leather trenchcoats in the Zone, [[CoolButInefficient because they look cool]]. Degtyarev can get one as well in ''Call of Pripyat''. That doesn't change the fact that leather clothing is woefully inadequate for ''any'' of [[DeathWorld the dangers the Zone presents]] be them bullets, mutant attacks, or the effects of anomalies and the average user is an ill-equipped and combat-incompetent bad guy wannabe.

to:

* [[Series/{{Monk}} Adrian Monk]] often wears a coat but doesn't exactly give off a badass vibe, especially with all his phobias. Make no mistake though, he is a former police officer, so there are times where even he can [[LetsGetDangerous administer a surprisingly effective beatdown on some criminals.]]

Extremely associated with police detectives, FBI and inspectors. In fact association with the latter is so strong, you will have trouble finding a character named "inspector" without a NotSoBadassLongcoat of his own.

See BadassLongcoat for the inverse of this trope, and ConspicuousTrenchcoat for when someone uses a longcoat to conceal themselves, but the disguise has no effect on the audience (or appears to be hiding some [[SexyCoatFlashing Sexy Coat]] [[NakedInMink Flashing]]).
