She then wakes up on a gurney in the prison where she was (supposedly) executed, knocks out a few guards, and escapes.]]

* In the concept album TheLambLiesDownOnBroadway, there's a character called "Lilywhite Lilith" who falls into this trope. It's implied that she's not even human, but rather some kind of cave creature.

** The arrancar wear a white uniform to contrast with the black shinigami uniforms. As a result, the female arrancar fall into this trope. The white uniforms symbolise evil and, therefore, death, as a somewhat ironic contrast to the "death spirits" (Shinigami) who actually protect life, or at least the ability of souls to continue being reborn into new lives.

* Prominently worn by Creator/JoanCrawford in the deconstructionist western Film/JohnnyGuitar, where her character Vienna wears a white dress and plays a piano in her saloon when the BigBad Emma Small enters the place. Since this movie is a parody of the Western, the white dress worn by Crawford signifying her as good and the black dress worn by her enemy is an ironic reversal, since by usual Western codes Vienna is a "bad girl" (a former prostitute turned SaloonOwner) while Emma Small (a virgin cattle baron's daughter turned KnightTemplar) is a "good girl".
