* The Gelato Man from ''AlphaProtocol''. Mike quips that he's at risk from catching salmonella just from looking at his establishment. [[spoiler:It helps keep down the customers and thus hide the NSA listening post in his shop.]]

Yuck! A character whose most obvious trait is that they are absolutely filthy. [[IThoughtItMeant Not filthy in morals, behaviors, or ethics]] ([[UncleanlinessIsNextToUngodliness but sometimes they are]]), but someone whose ''body'' is actually covered in filth. The person might have other qualities as well, but their filthiness is bad in relation to the rest of the cast, or at least the setting. There is a chance that they are not pleasant to look at.

Named after the ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' character Pig-Pen, pictured right, who was always surrounded by a cloud of dust and has been seen going from "perfectly clean" to "covered in dust" while walking down the road or - most absurdly - ''in a rainstorm''. Also see MenCantKeepHouse, DirtyForeigner and HumansAreStinky for a more fantasy-based variant. When this Trope is a defining trait of a villainous or otherwise evil character, see UncleanlinessIsNextToUngodliness. A character who offsets bad hygiene with high intelligence is a GeniusSlob.

* ''Pongalongapongo'' / ''Krazy Gang'' - [[http://www.toonhound.com/pongalongapongo.htm Pongo Snodgrass]], a 70's-80's British comics character who loved filth and all things putrid, and was also something of a schemer.

* In ''{{Series/Wilfred}}'', Ryan rents out a room in his house to a new tenant, a woman named Anne. She has horrible hygiene, leaving food and other mess everywhere, and doesn't have a real job (her only source of income is to [[{{Squick}} post online fetish videos of herself to perverts who get off to her poor hygiene and eating habits]]). Anne does try to (literally) clean herself up for a job interview, but complains about it and goes back to being a lazy, dirty slob.


Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' episode "Conway the Contaminationist", a man named Conway (a filthy, deformed pilot) comes to the Bagge house, claiming that terrible hygiene is actually ''good'' for your health. Muriel and Eustace decide to live filthy lifestyles too, but it makes them sick and miserable. Conway himself though [[BizarreHumanBiology actually does benefit from being dirty]], as he drinks sludge to heal his injuries, and even claims to be 193 years old.

* Kristoff from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', to the point of being a RunningGag: he eats a saliva covered carrot (it was Sven's saliva, but still it was pretty gross), only ever relieves himself in the woods, and (by his own admission) smells worse than a reindeer. The trolls say he's smelly no matter how much he washes, and Olaf describes him as "a pungent reindeer king."

Later in "Disney/FrozenFever", Elsa says that ''because it's Anna's birthday'', she "'''even''' got Kristoff to take a bath", so that still must be a very rare event.

* Although Barik from ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'' would ''like'' to maintain high standards of hygiene, being [[ClingyCostume fused into a shell of iron and bronze scrap]] makes it ''difficult'' for him to keep himself clean; it's noted that he constantly smells of metal, oil, sweat and feces, despite his best efforts.

* Legend has it that Louis XIV only bathed twice in his entire life. ''Twice''. And he hated both of them. [[HorribleHistories The story goes]] that he once had his socks removed and he was so moldy that one of his toes dropped off. Like most who could afford it, he limited his hygiene to changing clothes (or at least shirts and undergarments) several times a day. Clothes were cleaned regularly, bodies... not so much. The truth is, however, that some courtiers who followed the suit sometimes complained about king's smell.
