* ''Manga/OniisamaE'':
** Subverted with Rei Asaka AKA "Hana no Saint-Juste". She does smoke on a regular basis, but her smoking is ''not'' portrayed as cool, as it is a sign of her BrokenBird personality and her self-destructive behaviour to show how ''really'' messed up she is.
** Played straight with "Lady Vampanella" Hoshino and Takashi Ichinomiya, but Hoshino does it when she's not in school.

** On at least one episode of ''ThePriceIsRight'', former model Anitra Ford (one of the few Barker-era models to leave the show on her own terms) was seen with a lighted cigarette during a Showcase skit (where she was playing a detective's buxom during a mystery-themed showcase); it was not clear if she inhaled or took a full drag.

* Used as a plot point in ''Film/ThankYouForSmoking''; the advertising agency plans to make a film in which the stars smoke, making it look cool. Interestingly, no character is ever seen actually smoking on screen throughout ''Thank You For Smoking'' itself.



* A significant subplot of ThankYouForSmoking has to do with a tobacco lobbyist (Nick Naylor) pushing for Hollywood to bring this trope, this trope and SmokingIsGlamorous back. As a character in one movie says, "Mr. Naylor's here to see if we can't get cigarettes into the hands of someone other than the usual RAVS (Russians, Arabs, and Villains)." They paint the image of BradPitt and CatherineZetaJones having sex in zero gravity in the far future with Brad blowing smoke rings over Catherine's naked body as the cosmos flies by.

* Also subverted in DeadmanWonderland with Senji; he's definitely one of the most badass characters in the series, but he claims that cigarettes are "the nails of coffins".

* Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'', when Sonic warns the audience not to smoke.
-->'''Sonic''': It's bad for your health, and it stains your teeth! So don't be a fool; smoking isn't cool.
