* Vince Noir of ''TheMightyBoosh'', especially in the third season. His hair is always dyed, teased and styled, he wears capes, gloves, low-cut jumpsuits, stack-heeled platform boots, feather boas, and most of his wardrobe is shiny and/or skin-tight. On the one occasion he shows up dressed in a normal, conservative outfit with plain hair, Howard faints.

* The second set of ''SakuraTaisen'' {{OVA}}s feature "Dan Dandy", a would-be "stylish criminal" whose path as a secondary character keeps intersecting that of the Hanagumi. Dan is foppish, a slave to what he considers the height of fashion for American gangsters, and only marginally competent; the Hanagumi don't even really notice him when they cross paths. (Oddly, he originated in one of the live ''Sakura Taisen'' stage shows, and [[CanonImmigrant became popular enough among fans that he was included in the OVA series]].)

* In ''Theatre/{{Patience}}'', Bunthorne is always dressed in the height of fashion.



* At least 2 in {{Noblesse}} Raizel is perfectly capable of magically materializing clothing, but his dandy butler Frankenstein insists that he wear only the finest clothing made by hmself of only the highest quality material, as stated in Noblesse S 1. Then we have metrosexual Tao. In Noblesse S, one of his coworkers stated that he looks like a woman & acts like a little boy. While most of the cast has a static wardrobe, he rotates his clothing, which includes a famine off-shoulder sweater. He also wears more makeup than any of the girls.
* Conrad from ''Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName'' dresses better than the rest of the cast and is easily the most useless when it comes to actual fights. The author herself even described him as 'metrosexual.'
* Luca of ''SfeerTheory'' is a {{Downplayed}} version. Word of God says he's rather vain and takes painstaking care of his appearance. It's subtle in the comic itself where Luca is usually fixing up his often mussed up hair and visibly upset whenever it or his clothes are ruined.
* Finn from ''WarriorU''. An ''entire storyline'' might never have occurred if his manlier friend Harv had only bitten the bullet and gone shopping with him (which he eventually did).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'', Justin Hammer is always immaculately dressed, creating a sharp contrast with his alter ego Titanium Man, who has the least elegant armor in the series.

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': Simon Tam. Rather odd considering [[BloodierAndGorier some aspects]] of [[TheMedic his profession]]. In his case he is more serious minded and much of it is a deliberate [[StiffUpperLip maintenance of standards]] in [[HonorBeforeReason defiance of reality]].
** Actually not so odd. A doctor has good practical reasons to be a fanatic about cleanliness in any case. And a rich doctor would have means to express said tendency even in normal life - and silk is very hygienic, after all...
*** Also, being respectable is ''useful'' in the circles he's now traveling in. Even if he could stand to part with another part of his identity, this time for no real reason, it's not sensible to neglect an asset.

* [[ASongOfIceAndFire Loras Tyrell]], anyone? He subverts the "avoids physical confrontations" bit, but otherwise...Good lord, he's slight and beautiful, lovelier even than his ''sister'', cocky, very chivalrous, and is usually impeccably, rather gaudily dressed. A breastplate encrusted with gemstones forming floral patterns? A cloak with ''actual roses'' sewn in? Knight of Flowers indeed. And let's not even get started on the rainbow cloak...
** Lord Renly arguably also fits this trope.
** Petyr Baelish puts on the front of being a shallow climber by putting on the facade of being this trope.
