* The music video for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAEil3_D03k "Dr. Beat"]] by [[Music/GloriaEstefan Miami Sound Machine]] features, among the crowd, a sharply dressed pimp dancing with two hoes. Although compared to the other very colorful characters of the clip, he actually looks ''tame''.

* Pusher-Man from ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}''.
* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker sometimes accessorises his usual purple suit with a very wide-brimmed hat, which makes him look like a pimp stereotype. It's probably a coincidence, as he started doing this before the look started to become socially notorious.

* [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in a flashback panel in ''Comicbook/TheSuperiorFoesOfSpiderMan''. Janice/Beetle is sent by her [[AmoralAttorney evil law firm]] to mediate a dispute between the supervillains Baron Zemo and The Fixer. The relationship between the two runs the gamut from VillainousFriendship to mutual loathing and murder attempts, but they always continue to work together despite Fixer's better judgment. Consequently, when Janice listens to the two arguing, she imagines Fixer (wearing a dress and a blonde wig) as a ho arguing with her pimp Zemo (wearing a broad-brimmed feather hat in addition to his usual [[FashionVictimVillain purple duds with trimmed fur collar]]).

* A ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' skit has a man wearing a coat made out of Beanie Babies (he originally planned to sell them as collector's items but didn't know that they became worthless, thus forcing him on the streets) being mistaken for "the richest pimp in town" by a random hooker who also didn't know of their worthlessness. Taking advantage of this, he soon indeed becomes the richest pimp in town.
