* Deckard from ''Film/BladeRunner'', despite having a lot of the typical traits of a classic Noir detective, is decidedly ''not'' badass, despite his longcoat. His sole two kills in the movie are women, both of which he shoots in the back. The male replicants he pursues kick his ass up and down the field, and he's very narrowly saved from death both times (once by Rachel blasting Leon in the back, and the other time by Roy showing him mercy).
* 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.]]

* 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.
