* ''Series/TheFactsOfLife''; in one episode, Blair's deceased grandfather had willed a generous bequest to Peekskill to build a school library. After learning that her grandfather was in the Klan, Blair tried to stop the bequest, not wanting her school associated with the Klan. Mrs. Garrett suggested that she should instead enjoy the irony; that after a lifetime of promoting intolerance, her granddad's money would be used to educate.

Mrs. Garrett suggested that she should instead enjoy the irony; that after a lifetime of promoting intolerance, her granddad's money would be used to educate. Blair was also afraid of how much of her grandfather's racism may have rubbed off on her. Jo tried to assure her, "You're not a racist. You're just a snob."

* ''Discworld/InterestingTimes'': The book went through several titles, one of them Imperial Wizard (the plot is kicked off by the ImperialChina analogue demanding they be sent a wizard- Rincewind in this case).
--> "Rincewind and Cohen are having such fun -- that is to say, death and terror attend them at every step -- on the Counterweight Continent and the Forbidden City of the Agatean Empire that it might well end up being called: Imperial Wizard ...which ought to sell well in the US. [[DeepSouth In some States, anyway.]]"

* The KKK costumes were worn by [[{{Mook}} Mooks]] serving [[{{Necromancer}} Zaria]] in ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', although this is more of a case of TheNecrocracy.

* The Klan appears in ''Film/OBrotherWhereArtThou'' as enemies midway through the movie, as Everett, Pete, and Delmar must rescue their friend Tommy from the Klan. They are generally mocked, and their cross lighting ceremony features a humorous reference to the Winkies in ''Film/TheWizardOfOz''. The Klan is also portrayed as not having the support of the local population. After a politician (who has already annoyed the crowd) lets slip that he's a Klansman, he gets literally ridden out on a rail. (This isn't ''entirely'' accurate for Mississippi in the first half of the century, but the movie is set in the 1930s--by which point the Klan's great popularity of the 1910s and 20s had faded--so it's not ''entirely'' impossible, either.)

Couple that with the ''immense'' popularity of the Soggy Bottom Boys, and it's practically reasonable.

* The ''Comicbook/{{Batman}}'' {{Elseworlds}} comic "Dark Allegiances", written and penciled by Howard Chaykan, featured Bruce Wayne as a self-made industrialist in the late 1930s, going up against the White Legion, who wore Klan hoods with swastikas on their foreheads. The Legion was secretly backed by Senator Pewtie (this universe's version of Two-Face) who, along with the Joker and the Penguin, plotted to assassinate both Franklin Roosevelt and Adolf Hitler, in a bid to install the fascist Pewtie in the White House.

The UsefulNotes/KuKluxKlan has appeared a lot in fiction, especially in the DeepSouth. As one of the most well-known hate groups in history, and with their [[IconicOutfit distinctive white robes]] and [[InTheHood pointed hoods]], they are commonly found as {{Politically Incorrect Villain}}s. They almost always will have [[AmericanAccents drawling accents]], [[HairTriggerTemper be hot-tempered]], drop plenty of {{Cluster F Bomb}}s and - ironically - be [[DumbMuscle as dumb as bricks]] (ironic because its earliest members had been classically educated, and "Ku Klux" itself was [[WickedCultured inspired by the ancient Greek word for "circle")]].
