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 [[UsefulNotes/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"]]).

* Ironically, the traditionally Protestant Ku Klux Klan are one of two major inspirations for the Vatican's Papal Knights in ''{{Manga/Hellsing}}'' (the other being UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar and other Crusades-era knightly orders). Although the pointy hoods actually originated with the Spanish Inquisition, the white color and flowing capes are clearly taken from the KKK.
