* 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.

* The manual for ''SpiritOfTheCentury'' lists the Klan as a possible enemy to use in the game's 1920s setting, with the text noting "Next to [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazis]], is there anyone more satisfying to beat up?"

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")]].

->''How the hell are we supposed to introduce ourselves?!

* A hilarious example in the {{Series/Switch}} parody of Series/GermanysNextTopModel. The models present Ku Klux Klan costumes to the jury. The jury-member Bruce Darnel , an american negro and AmbiguouslyGay LargeHam (actual Hoecker in BlackFace) says: ''This makes me feel so hot, I feel ... fire''. Then Heidi Klum (who is married to the (black) rapper {{Music/Seal}} say : ''I will take this ghost-outfit home, to suprise my husband''.

* ''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."
