* Haruhi Suzumiya (pictured), leader of the "S.O.S" Brigade in the anime ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya]]''. She wears several of these, declaring her as Chief, Ultra Detective, or whatever her current role is. She also makes an orange one for her deputy chief...Koizumi. [[CosmicPlaything You didn't serious think she'd actually give Kyon a promotion, did you?]]

* For ''[[Film/TheKarateKid The Next Karate Kid]]'' they needed to make the opposing karate student character that each film got fit into a high school JerkJock mold. Since there is possibly no high school in the Western hemisphere where the top karate student ends up at the top of the pecking order they made up some weird paramilitary hall monitor discplinary team who gained automatic power over all other students by running around wearing scary black armbands.

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': In the beta, several of the classes wore their class symbols on such armbands. Presumably Valve realized this would result in UnfortunateImplications, especially for the Medic, who is German and probably old enough to have served in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, so eventually they went with shirts/jackets that have the class symbol on the sleeve instead.

For westerners, associations might come out wrong. [[ThoseWackyNazis Very]] [[PuttingontheReich wrong]]. Except for Russians, who used similar armbands quite innocently during the Soviet period. Plain black armbands have a much different connotation - they indicate that the wearer is either mourning a lost comrade, or that they're [[BombThrowingAnarchists an anarchist]].
