Big Boss again in "VideoGame/MetalGearSolid5" is constantly struggling with his addiction as he is desperate to smoke, but his allies would rather "the greatest solider ever" not die of lung cancer so they give him E-cigars, if they player selects these Time Passes Montage will happen. In a hilarious Birthday cutscene where Big Boss is given a surprise party, Occelot hands Big Boss a Cuban cigar, to which he gets excited sniffing it, putting in his mouth and tries to light it on his birthday cake but Kaz takes it away immediately. Luckily for Big Boss Cold Sniper Quiet will blast open a crate revealing a stockpile of Cubans, as her present to him (she even lights it for him with a shot from her rifle).

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'''s Cid Highwind chain-smokes like a maniac and still spears random monsters on a par with the SuperSoldier who runs the team. He even lights a stick of dynamite with his cigarette in one of his [[LimitBreak Limit Breaks]]. His later appearances in canon (''[[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]]'' and ''DirgeOfCerberus'') seem at first to imply he's given it up, since he doesn't smoke at all in the former, and his new character design doesn't have the pack hooked in his goggles any more. But then toward the end of ''Cerberus'', he indulges in a victory smoke after blowing up one of the Midgar reactors.

* In the {{DCU}}, Franchise/{{Batman}}'s ally Commissioner Gordon was seen smoking at least once per issue, especially after FrankMiller's big '80s stories. A heart scare in the mid '90s put an end to that.

* Parodied in Wrestling/RingOfHonor where Jay Briscoe cut a promo out in the cold wearing nothing but a tank top to hide the fact it was his breath rather than smoke you were seeing. Mark and Papa weren't impressed.

* In ''{{Company}}'', Joanne states that smoking is "the best". In the DVD of the 2011 concert version where she is played by Patti [=LuPone=], you can see that she's smoking Pall Malls, which fits with [[LadyDrunk the sort of]] [[DeadpanSnarker character she is]].

* OscarWilde certainly thought so. [[GentlemanSnarker Lord Henry Wotton]], easily the coolest character in ''Literature/ThePictureOfDorianGray'' is a prolific chain-smoker.

* Grifter the badass longcoat of the {{Wildcats}} smokes. A lot. In very inappropriate situations (such as free falling a few hundred metres).
* Everyone who's anyone in ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'' smokes. Even the main character's ''cat'' smokes. At least the prevalence of genetic engineering has eliminated the "cancer" part. The cigarettes themselves have also been modified to provide health ''benefits''. This is definite AuthorAppeal for Warren Ellis.
