->'''CJ''': Can you shoot?\\
'''The Truth''': Shoot? I'm a hippie! The only thing I've shot is acid. I heard a dude snorted it once. Thought his nose was a kangaroo and the moon was a dog! WOOH!
-->-- ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas''

Hippies are often depicted in television and video games as pot-loving, tie-dyed shirt-wearing, stuck-in-the-'60s types who believe in [[EverybodyHasLotsOfSex sexual freedom]], [[NudeNatureDance celebrating nature]] and railing against "TheMan, [[VerbalTic man.]]" While this was [[TotallyRadical (and whoah, still is, you know, dude)]] true to some extent, it has been [[{{Flanderization}} exaggerated]] ([[RuleOfFunny naturally]]) in fiction, [[OverlyLongGag dude]].

[[http://www.dailykos.com/story/2006/08/09/234908/- This stereotype is a caricature]] of a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_hippie_movement series of art and political movements]] (plural) that started with the Beats, partly fueled and fused by LSD. Acid evangelists included Timothy Leary's [[EruditeStoner League for Spiritual Discovery]] and Ken Kesey's [[DrugsAreGood Merry]] [[EverybodyMustGetStoned Pranksters]]. There were also the [[http://diggers.org Diggers]], the Tropers/{{Anonymous}} of the 1960s, who sought a realistic path to a totally free economy[[note]]The familiar slogan "Do your own thing" originated with the Diggers: their other less-well-known slogan was "Everything is free." If you gave money to a Digger, he or she was liable to give it away or set it on fire.[[/note]], the [[http://diggers.org/alf Artists Liberation Front]], and the [[http://www.sfmt.org/index.php San Francisco Mime Troupe]] street theater. [[http://www.gutenberg-e.org/hodgdon/11_Ch_01_ed.html Much more here]] about how these groups interacted and formed a new society. Word got out, attracting youthful runaways and seekers who flocked in the thousands to San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district and to [[http://ny.curbed.com/2014/9/4/10052426/the-strange-history-of-the-east-villages-most-famous-street New York's Lower East Side]] during the "Summer of Love". These seeking young people were the ones most people think of as "hippies" today although [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etymology_of_hippie the term is much older than that]].

By the time the CBS News crews arrived to film ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJkSK_nU9Ik The Hippie Temptation]]'', the documentary that gave most Americans their first glimpse of Music/TheGratefulDead, the Haight had been overrun with thousands of bewildered kids, most of the men [[https://ww2.kqed.org/arts/2017/09/20/the-summer-of-crap-peter-coyote-on-vietnam-and-life-in-the-60s/ rightfully apprehensive of the draft and being sent off to die]] in TheVietnamWar, and looking for a better world than the StepfordSmiler suburbs. Only a few caught onto what was really happening and pulled themselves into a good understanding. Most had come assuming the subculture was an already-existing {{Utopia}}[[note]]A certain song by Scott [=McKenzie=] -- actually written as a promo for the Monterey Pop Festival -- didn't help things any.[[/note]] instead of [[http://www.aliciabaylaurel.com/whatdidthehippieswant a work in progress]]. [[http://www.diggers.org/freefall/freefall.html The key word being "work."]]

The earliest instances of this trope come only a few years after the first hippies, man. For a while contemporary depictions either confused hippies with {{beatnik}}s or just portrayed them being, [[LikeIsLikeAComma like]], generically weird. It's like TheNewRockAndRoll, dude, except the hippie "messed-up" phase never ended. Whoah.

Plenty of TruthInTelevision, here. Although a certain amount of Flanderization occurs in fiction as noted above, hippie clothing generally isn't exaggerated at all, because it doesn't need to be. As LikeIsLikeAComma and VerbalTic note, the use of "like" and a sentence-ending "man" are not uncommon in real life.

Although generally considered Pacifist, the actual level varies; usually somewhere between {{martial|Pacifist}} and {{badass|Pacifist}}. If they're on the main team in an action show, they're almost always a TechnicalPacifist. An ActualPacifist is extremely rare, although they may claim this.

A subset of this character type is the HippieTeacher, man, or like, HippieParents, you know? And whoah, dude: compare GranolaGirl. See also NakedPeopleAreFunny for the New Age Pants-free Retro Hippie, man.

Former hippies who joined the establishment while retaining their countercultural values become a specific type, the BourgeoisBohemian. When portrayed sympathetically, they are usually a CoolOldGuy or CoolOldLady. This character is also a common flavor of AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents. You may find the New Age Retro Hippie living on a {{Commune}}. Often DoesNotLikeShoes, because shoes are, like, TheMan for your feet, man.

!!Whoa, Far-out Examples, man:


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Momoko Asuka from ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'' has an ImageSong called "Sekai wa Love and Peace," [[note]] "Love and Peace For the World,"[[/note]] and whenever she sings it InUniverse, she wears a hippie costume with it.
* In the anime version of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', [[PlayingWithFire Blaine]] has some shades of this, particularly when [[ChekhovsGunman the gang first meets him]]. Note that this is largely absent from the games, where he's simply a MadScientist.
* ''Anime/TurnAGundam'' has the Red Team, a family of Moonrace-descended Terrans who wear hippie clothing and spend a lot of time getting drunk, dancing, and singing songs about the Moon. The rest of the Moonrace treats them... well, kind of like real life hippies are treated. They're a subversion though: rather than countercultural peace-lovers, they are warriors absolutely loyal to the Lunar Queen, Dianna Soriel.
* Two unnamed hippies (a man and a woman, possibly a married couple) appeared several times in ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', and were an essential element to the plot of one story.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Nick "Bearclaw" in ''[[ComicBook/TheBooksOfMagic Names of Magic/Hunter:The Age of Magic]]'' is very much one of these, though he's actually one of the ''least'' messed-up people in the series. Being introduced to real magic doesn't do much to change him.
* Ted Richards' underground comic ''TheFortyYearOldHippie'' came out ca. 1979 - the title character looks about 70, and regales youngsters with stories about the old days. His catch phrases: "Over 200 trips and they've all been bummers - but I ain't givin' up!" and "I ain't been high since The Pot of '69!"
* ''Comicbook/BrotherPowerTheGeek'' is very much this, being a clothing store mannequin brought to life by a [[LightningCanDoAnything lightning bolt]] and befriended by a group of Hippies who dress him in "hip threads" and teach him all about Love and Peace. HilarityEnsues.
* ''Comicbook/TheFabulousFurryFreakBrothers'' are all about this.
* The Rarity issue of the ''[[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyMicroSeries My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic]]'' micro-series has her going to a "wellness center" run by a number of hippie ponies that fit this trope perfectly, likely [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids just squeaking under the censor line]].
* Head from ''ComicBook/{{Ronin}}'' is a rather dark variation. He represents the Ronin as a mercenary, comparing it to his work representing [[Music/TheRollingStones Jagger]], [[Music/TheBeatles McCartney]] and [[Music/BobDylan Dylan]] back in the sixties.
-->'''Head:''' Uncool scene. Incredibly uncool. Like violent. Well, my Ronin here - he's like the [[Music/ElvisPresley Elvis]] of violence.

* Clearwater Commune in ''Roleplay/{{DC Nation}}'' fits this. Founded on ActualPacifist principles, and implied to have devolved a bit into the GranolaGirl trope. Led by RetiredBadass "Brother" Joseph Cross, who is [[TheAtoner atoning for the atrocities he committed during the Vietnam War]]. The Titan Fauna was born and raised on the Commune, and remains as much of NewAgeRetroHippie as one can while still putting on kevlar and spandex.
* Fluttershy in the Blog/ReadingRainbowverse had a phase like this. She's very embarrassed about it and actually suffers from physical side effects of her drug abuse.

* ''Film/TheBigLebowski'': The Dude.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'': Filmore (named for [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fillmore this place]]. Since the cast is made up of cars, he's naturally a VW microbus.
* ''Film/FlirtingWithDisaster'' has Ben Stiller looking for his birth parents - they turn out to be old hippies (Alan Alda and Lily Tomlin) who passionately argue that taking LSD shouldn't be a felony (as well they would, as they're manufacturing it).
* ''Film/HeartbreakRidge'': As opposed to that other Creator/ClintEastwood movie, where he's informed that hippies no longer exist.
* ''Film/ILoveYouAliceBToklas'': Creator/PeterSellers' character joins a hippie commune, and is quickly disenchanted with them.
* ''Film/KellysHeroes'': Sgt Oddball is as unadulterated a Summer Of Love-style hippie as a WWII tank commander could possibly be.
* ''Film/TheProducers'': [[SignificantMonogram Lorenzo St. Dubois]], the actor who Max and Leo find to play Hitler in the original film.
* ''Film/{{Revolution 1968}}'': Hippies are the subject of this {{Documentary}}.
* ''Film/SanFranciscoInternationalAirport'': William Sturtevant. Is falsely accused of starting a fight.
* ''Film/ForrestGump'': A good half of this movie is centered around the hippies.
* Among films in which hippies or their ideals figured prominently such as ''Film/PsychOut'' (starring Susan Strasberg and Jack Nicholson) or ''Wild in the Streets'', there were a number of low budget "hipsploitation" movies and documentaries.
* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Yax has long and messy hair, talks like a stereotypical hippie, is laid-back, "enlightened" and not the least bit prudish (walking around naked and all). And [[Creator/CheechAndChong Tommy Chong]] voices him, to boot.

* ''The Blithedale Romance'' by Nathaniel Hawthorne portrayed a proto-version of the trope as early as 1852 (albeit with Transcendentalists rather than hippies proper.)
* Starflower Creed from ''Literature/LoveInANutshell''.
* ''Literature/ParisInTheTwentiethCentury'', written in the 1860s, has as its 1960s protagonist a LoveFreak and self-proclaimed poet who grows his hair long and detests corporations. He's not a drug addict, but the foundations of the trope can be seen. (Again, this was probably working off the Transcendentalists.)
* Rufus Thorn from ''Literature/{{Relativity}}'' was born too late to personally experience the 60s, but he loves the hippie lifestyle and totally embraces it. Except for the peace and love part. He's ''totally'' into bombs and killing people.
* Gloria Glyczwych (Witch Gliz) and her gay traveling companion John [=McFadden=] (Roy), and their friends in the New York commune, in James Leo Herlihy's forgotten 1971 classic ''Literature/SeasonOfTheWitch''.
* ''Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo'' series: At the start, Tom Stone's the last member of the [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Lothlorien]] Commune, living there with his three sons. After the town of Grantville (including the commune) is sent back into the UsefulNotes/ThirtyYearsWar, Stone first offers up his marijuana crop for use as a painkiller. Being a hippie, he insists on giving it away. Then, he uses the knowledge of industrial chemistry he originally accumulated to make LSD to produce waterproof dyes, so the hippie is now one of the richest men in Europe, although the medicines he also produces are still sold at cost, not for profit. For giving it away, at least one village is petitioning for him to become a saint.
* Lee Kingman's ''The Peter Pan Bag'', first published in 1971, concerns teens from super-wealthy families who go to Boston's hippie enclave to "find themselves" and end up either murdered, insane or slinking home having learned their lesson. The lead character is seventeen, a "totally innocent bird", who is shepherded through her one-week experience by the brother of a friend -- a clinical psychology intern who secretly films, photographs and tapes her for his dissertation. (He ends up not using her because another super-rich teen -- the one who gets murdered -- provides juicier material.) This is one of several YA books from this period (the most famous being ''Literature/GoAskAlice'') intended to scare kids straight while laying on stereotypical "hippie" detail good and thick. If you were 13 in the early 70s and living in some deathburb these and a few [[DrugsAreBad/LiveActionTV TV hippies]] are probably the only hippies you ever knew.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* There was an early episode of ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' where a pair of hippie friends of Meathead's come to visit. For once, Gloria and Meathead come around to Archie's point of view about them. Mostly, because the guests believe in wife-swapping.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Jenny. CrowningMomentOfFunny at Giles' EyeTake when he hears about her nude mud dance at Burning Man.
* Half the cast of ''Series/DharmaAndGreg'', this being the premise of the show. Larry, Dharma's father, was the most {{egregious}} example, compared to his unmarried partner in a very OverAndUnderTheTop way.
* One episode of ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' features an old friend of Philip and Vivian's who hasn't changed a bit since the '60s paying them a visit, and her presence roils the kids up into buying into it and staging protests against their parents (in Ashley's case) or their school (Will). [[spoiler:It later turns out she's on the run from the FBI.]]
* A religious cult of hippies who appear to worship trees to the extent of almost having sex with them appears in an episode of ''Series/JonathanCreek''.
* ''The Late Show with Creator/DavidLetterman'' goes to San Fransico while Dave's in LA for a week, and Dave finds [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manny_the_Hippie Manny the Hippie]], an early 20s hippie that Dave takes a liking to. Manny ends up travelling across the country filing reports for the show - until his parole officer catches up with him.
* On ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', Earl recalls that he once robbed a [[TheStoner stoner]] of all his possessions during a HeatWave a few summers back. He tracks the guy down, and finds that he's living in a hippie {{Commune}} outside of Camden, and thus doesn't want his air-conditioner or other items back. He teaches Earl about [[GreenAesop climate change]]...but also that it's going to be small changes that help prevent an ApocalypseHow.
* The last ''Franchise/{{Quatermass}}'' somehow managed to combine this and TheNewRockAndRoll; the cities are decaying, and one symptom of this is a band of violent hippies -- sorry, "Planet People" -- who believe they've made contact with a peaceful race of aliens (who are actually conning the hippies, and plan to harvest them as a food source). According to Wiki/TheOtherWiki, the writer realized he shouldn't have gone with hippies (as it was 1979) and used punks instead, [[TheQuincyPunk but that's another trope entirely]].
* Buzz Sherwood from ''Series/TheRedGreenShow'', though a bit more energetic than most hippies.
* Naomi's mum Gina from ''Series/{{Skins}}'' is this; she's turned their house into a commune populated by naked people, Jesus lookalikes, free love (one of the hippies notes of just-woken-up-naked-Naomi that "it's nothing he hasn't seen before", and she's "even got the same haircut her mum does" -- he's not looking at her head), random transients and dopey women called Dopey who object to the heteronormative patriarchal symbolism of the humble banana. (No wonder Naomi struggled with Emily's possessiveness, when she had to become a sarcastic independent bitch just to avoid going insane in her own home.) Eventually Gina does grow up a bit though, boots the commune out and settles down with one man (Kieran) - they promptly head off to fulfil Gina's dream of "fucking on every beach in India".
* The ''Enterprise'' crew ran into a bunch of space hippies in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'''s "The Way to Eden."
* The aforementioned CBS News documentary ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJkSK_nU9Ik The Hippie Temptation]]'' first aired August 22, 1967. Most real hippies had already left the Haight-Ashbury. Much of the focus was on the dangers of LSD and the piece never even got into as much depth as some of the articles in ''Time'' or ''Newsweek'' about the philosophies or the art/political movements behind the surface appearance that like formed the trope, man.
* Leo on ''Series/That70sShow'', albeit the role was played by Tommy Chong, who had, by the time of airing, long been known for his hippie persona.
* A character played by Joann Worley in an episode of ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' who is a friend of Alex.
* ''Series/TheYoungOnes'': Neil has long hair, has hippiesh tics, and is a vegetarian with a notorious lentil-and-seaweed casserole. He's also the series' ButtMonkey. "Shut up, hippie."
* Vaughan from ''Series/{{Community}}''. Jeff wondered "He never wears a shirt or shoes - how does he not die from lack of service?" Written off the show when he transferred to another college on a hacky-sack scholarship.
* Misty Day from ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryCoven'' meditates, lives in the swamp, kills two alligator poachers ("Why would you kill God's innocent creatures?") [[spoiler:using the alligators]], listens to Stevie Nicks, etc.
* ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'': Willow. She claims to be able to sense "vibes" (and, according to her, bad vibes can be removed by sprinkling citrus oil everywhere), and she meditates frequently and loudly, much to her roommate Mara's chagrin.
* Creator/VanKootenEnDeBie: Koos Koets and Robbie Kerkhof, two older hippies.
* In ''Series/TheSentinel'', Jim calls Blair a "neo-hippie witch-doctor punk"; Blair's mom, Naomi, is the last flower child not gone to seed.
* ''Series/{{SCTV}}'' - John Candy played Dr. Braino, a hippie character who only appeared twice, and both times got really high, freaked out, and jumped out a window.
* ''Series/TheKidsInTheHall'' had a series of skits called "He's Hip. He's Cool. He's 45!"

* One of the characters in Music/{{Ayreon}}'s ''Into the Electric Castle'' seems to fit this - he's referred to only as "the Hippie" and for the first half of the album thinks that it's all an incredible drug trip. [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs Not that you can blame him ...]]
* Music/RingoStarr really plays up this trope these days ("[[CatchPhrase Peace and love]]!"), arguably as a tribute to Music/JohnLennon and/or a CallBack to his days with Music/TheBeatles. Music/GeorgeHarrison used to do this also. Music/PaulMcCartney's more of a BourgeoisBohemian.
* The BellamyBrothers had a charting single, "Old Hippie" about an aging hippie wondering whether he should give up his lifestyle in favor of the changed society he now lives in. They've released two sequels over the ensuing years to update the cultural references.
* Many musicians that are considered "classic rock" fit this trope to some extent. Music/NeilYoung openly refers to himself as a hippie and wrote a song called "Hippie Dream", which is also the subtitle of his recent book ''Waging Heavy Peace''.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Perennial Wrestling/{{WCW}} jobber-to-the-stars Brad Armstrong was briefly repackaged as Buzzkill, a hippie-ized expy of his more popular brother Brian James' "Road Dogg" gimmick.
* Wrestling/MickFoley (Cactus Jack, Mankind) once used the "lovable hippie" gimmick when he wrestled under the name "Dude Love". Dude Love is probably the perfect example of this trope ([[TheThemeParkVersion if not necessarily the perfect example of a hippie]].) He wears mirrored sunglasses, tye-dye shirts, does the Charleston, says "Woooo! Have Mercy!" and enters to [[AnachronismStew disco music]]. According to Mick, though, his original conception for the gimmick was that of a better, cooler version of himself who'd be able to get the girls Mick couldn't get as himself.
* Perennial WCW midcarder Van Hammer used a hippie gimmick for several months after breaking up with Wrestling/{{Raven}}'s Flock.
* Wrestling/DaizeeHaze started out her career with this gimmick, and never really left it, always having clashin color bands that were self made, man but [[UpToEleven really revisited it]] in Wrestling/{{Wrestlicious}}. It was meant as a tribute to her late father, who had been a hippie.
* This is CJ Parker's new gimmick on ''Wrestling/{{WWE NXT}}'' He used to be (and still is, in a few WWE websites) billed as from Joliet IL, but the new introduction has him coming from "the Moonchild Commune."
** He didn't really get over with this gimmick so he turned heel and is now more of a GranolaGirl.

* Creator/CheechAndChong are all about this, similar to the Freak Brothers.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* For a game actually set in the hippie world, there's Richard Saunders' ''[[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1534064183/co-op-the-co-op-game Co-Op]]''. The natural grocery is behind on its taxes and the city's about to foreclose and build a giant fuck-you supermarket in its place. Players have to work together to improve the situation by increasing membership and offering new interesting merchandise. "Bizzies", more business-minded personnel, control the practical aspects while Hippies maintain the "vibes" to bolster morale and make sure the store doesn't sell out for the sake of success or lose its original spirit. This game is TruthInTelevision with a vengeance for anyone who's ever been a member or director of a hippie co-op natural grocery (and [[http://www.rainbowblossom.com/about yes, they]] [[http://www.rainbow.coop very much]] [[http://bloomingfoods.coop still exist]]).

* Done slightly better in ''TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil'', where the hippies don't have to talk incessantly in "whoa, dude." (Oh, and [[Creator/HunterSThompson they have guns]].) Unfortunately, they're rather drastically misreading the psychic sense some of them have (which spikes violently when supernatural creatures harvest power from the world's energy points), which leads them into conflicts with werewolves and mages on a regular basis. There's a movement within the group to try more "grassroots action" and less "club and shoot", if only for survival's sake.

* ''Theatre/{{Hair}}'' was originally the TropeMaker, but it has become an UnbuiltTrope.

* Post-Summer of Love, many hippies bought rural property, re-learning rural skills on single-family farms, collective farms or {{Commune}}s. The trope of the "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Back-to-the-land_movement back to the land]]" country hippie who "mellowed out and raised potatoes" was so influential that it gave birth in 1974 to a set of Mattel dolls called [[http://clickamericana.com/eras/1970s/sunshine-family-from-mattel-1974-1978 the Sunshine Family]] and an array of [[http://clickamericana.com/eras/1970s/sunshine-family-play-sets-1970s wholesome, back-to-nature playsets]]. ([[http://ilovethesunshinefamily.blogspot.com/ Much more here]] and [[https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Ffabysattic.eklablog.com%2Fthe-sunshine-family-1974-1982-generalites-c315333&edit-text=&act=url even more here]].) Steve, Stephie and baby Sweets had a four-room farmhouse, a truck, a surrey cycle and a craft business with many supplementary kits. The "idea books" taught kids how to do things like -- yep -- raise potatoes and make useful things out of recycled materials. The family were later joined by a cat and dog, a horse, cow and chicken, grandparents, a red-haired single-mother auntie with her daughter who "came to visit forever"[[note]]given the time period, she might be presumed to have a husband or fiance who'd died or was a POW/MIA in Vietnam[[/note]] more babies, and neighbors called the Happy Family -- Hal, Hattie and baby Hon -- the first Afro-American doll friends who weren't just black versions of the main characters.
* Less successful were Remco's [[http://www.jackbergsales.com/toys/Herby_Hippy1.JPG Herbie Hippie]] (squeeze his tummy and he winks) and Paris & Co's [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/fe/89/be/fe89be2141bd3672fea71182aac7b07b.jpg Happy Hippies]] (1968). More successful were children's clothes and accessories imitating perceived hippie styles (fringe, moccasins, headbands) and various lines of posters, stationery, school supplies and jewelry. Pop beads reinvented themselves as "[[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/63/f3/e5/63f3e5745d63681c2f699f9d2a6103d9.jpg daisy snaps]]". [[http://f.i.uol.com.br/guia/crianca/images/11151580.jpeg Barbie and Ken]] acquired clothing somewhere between "Mod" and hippie, and a [[https://ebth-com-production.imgix.net/2015/10/30/02/17/50/905/IMG_9550.jpg somewhat psychedelic camper]]. England's [[https://c4.staticflickr.com/5/4001/5178907803_8d4517b2b9.jpg Sindy and Paul]] became hippies too. The iconic VW microbus [[http://www.classictoys.com/van67hipyel.JPG looked like this]] in its 1967 toy version.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Annie Frazier of ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'' is a total New Age Retro Hippie, even though she's from the '90s.
* ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'' introduced the character Cernd, a pure-classed Druid who is this. Rather unusual in that he's also a member of a druid kit that makes him a werewolf as well as a spellcaster, so he has all the usual NaturePower abilities, plus the ability to turn into a giant wolf and rip people apart with his bare hands. Despite this, he's considered one of the blandest characters, notable only for his MarriedToTheJob attitude.
* ''{{VideoGame/Bulletstorm}}'' has Whit the medic, who somehow manages to combine this with SociopathicSoldier. He does chew Grayson out at one point because "That was a major group decision you just made for all of us, man!" and when he expresses his misgivings concerning a certain mission, Rell dismisses him with "Skippy Granola's groovy dreamcatcher is picking up some bummer vibes."
* The TropeNamer is the New Age Retro Hippie[[note]]For those who don't recognize the lingo, "New Age Retro" a double-negative joke; "New Age" and "Retro" are taken from music genres[[/note]] from ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', who show up early in the game as a low-level enemy. Hippies appear in ''VideoGame/EarthBoundBeginnings'' as well. [[LaughablyEvil They attack you with rulers and try to trick you into thinking your mom's calling for you by shouting through a bullhorn]].
* In ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoClassic Grand Theft Auto: London]]'', the recurring Hari Krishna enemies are replaced by hippies in blue. You get the same bonus for running them over, though (the game even congratulates you on "keeping London tidy".)
* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' had The Truth, a tie-dye wearing, weed-growing, long-haired ConspiracyTheorist and hippie. At first he seems like a crackpot, but when Carl starts being shadowed by government spooks, those wild theories suddenly don't seem so far-fetched.
-->'''The Truth''': Carl, do you know how many satellites the government has in space?\\
'''Carl''': No. How many?\\
'''The Truth''': ''Twenty-three''. Do you know how many biblical artifacts the government is keeping at the Pentagon?\\
'''Carl Johnson''': No.\\
'''The Truth''': ''Twenty-three''. Don't you see a pattern here?\\
'''Carl''': Man I'm seeing patterns all over the place! Get that smoke out my face.
* Gustafa from ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife'' definitely fits the bill. He's a wandering songwriter who lives in a yurt and loves nature.
* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' features hippies rather prominently, especially in a late-game quest involving a large-scale war between a hippie enclave and [[WackyFratBoyHijinx a dorm of frat-orcs]].
* The third boss in ''VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw'', Mariska, is the Psychedelic Zombie, and thus modeled heavily after this trope. Physically, she resembles Music/JanisJoplin, and her arena is basically a massive acid trip.
* The Elves of ''VideoGame/OverlordII'' are an entire race of this and are the closest thing to a HeroAntagonist this series has.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'': [[spoiler:Kunino-sagiri]] may not be a NewAgeRetroHippie in terms of beliefs, but he definitely fits in terms of dress and mannerisms. (like his use of the VSign)
* Salim the apothecary in ''Videogame/QuestForGloryIII'' somehow manages to be this [[AnachronismStew hundreds of years before the sixties even happened]].
** As of ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryV'', he is a ''literal'' tree-hugger as well.
* Dr. Roméo in ''VideoGame/Rayman3HoodlumHavoc'', who wears dark glasses and a flower print beanie, has long hair, and talks like a stereotypical stoner, complete with TotallyRadical slang. When he leaves, he makes reference to needing to water his plants.
* The Pkunk from ''VideoGame/StarControl'' have this as their [[PlanetofHats hat]].
* The Karmaramas of ''VideoGame/{{Startopia}}'' are an entire species of these. Their job is to sow seeds on the biodeck. Apparently, the drugged-out attitude is genetic at this point, due to past generations overindulging and messing up natural selection. Checking their details, you find they come from places like "Bong, a mellow planet in the Far Out System".
* In ''UrbanRivals'' this is the Roots clans hat.
* Shinta Iwata, the owner of the ''Cosmic Corner'' shop in ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou.'' In modern day Shibuya, Japan; no less.
* There are few if any video games actually set in the hippie world or where you play a hippie yourself, although the setting would be perfect for a casual game similar to VideoGame/VirtualVillagers. There are a few dress-up games for girls that let you choose hippie-like attire.

* [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-04-16 Victor von Hip]] from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', a schoolboy who is like this. He also makes pamphlets [[CrazyPrepared for every occasion]]. [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-05-12 Check out]] his pamphlet on his pamphlets.
* The Star family from Webcomic/TheFAN appear to be this.
* ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'': Bloo was turned in the sixties while she was on drugs, so has been on a perpetual high she can't come down from for several decades.
* Splink from ''[[{{Webcomic/Zortic}} Zortic]]'' is this trope [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE!]]

* On Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom, the ([[DeadFic sadly unfinished]]) story ''[[http://alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=172980 Lysergacide]]'' has an alternate version of the hippie culture, known as the "dizzies", developing in TheRoaringTwenties as a result of LSD being discovered decades earlier. {{Jazz}} music and the work of Creator/ErnestHemingway and Creator/FScottFitzgerald become infused with psychedelia, while a number of occult and Islamic teachers (including Creator/AleisterCrowley and a Martin Luther King, Jr. who converted to Islam) gain prominence as spiritual leaders.
* "The Story of Floyd Crimson" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-e3m2g7l8c]] is a satirical piece/parody of hippies by Rubber Chicken Films.

* Mr Small, the school guidance counselor in ''WesternAnimaton/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is a classic example, wearing a rainbow shirt, talking about nature and owning a hippie van.
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' features a WackyWaysideTribe composed of these guys. For bonus points, their leader Chong appears to be {{named|AfterSomebodyFamous}} after RealLife hippie Tommy Chong of Creator/CheechAndChong fame.
** In the SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Kya, who is Aang and Katara's daughter and oldest child, is said to be this, being a fan of the famous Secret Tunnel song for example.
* Mr. Van Driessen from ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead''.
* The ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' episode "Diet of Worms" featured a Plutarkian named Gutama Gouda, who wore a pendant of the peace symbol around his neck and frequently droned on about achieving equilibrium. The Biker Mice even mock him by remarking that he has problems.
* Cooper and Beverly, the blueberry-and-secretly-also-marijuana farmers in the ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' episode "Bob Fires the Kids."
* Mandark's parents in ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory''. [[Music/JohnnyCash They even named him Susan]] in a horribly misguided attempt at breaking the gender boundaries. Naturally, this caused Mandark to resent them even more.
* Many members of the Waterfall family in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' are this taken to TooDumbToLive extents.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodeFamily'', Mike Judge's follow-up to ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', makes hippie/activist folks the main thrust of its comedy.
* Zoop, the resident GranolaGirl from ''WesternAnimation/IggyArbuckle''.
* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' has them feature in an episode where they have a nonprofit fruit and veg store. And they start panicking once Hank makes them more efficient and they start ... ''earning money''!!
** Another episode has a giant gathering of hippies ruin Hank and Bobby's camping trip by cluttering the state park and stealing Hank's property, and the Park Ranger can't do anything about it because the hippies are exercising their 1st Amendment right to peaceably assemble. Since they don't have a Constitutional right to restroom facilities or clean water sources, Hank, Bobby and the Ranger team up to get rid of the hippies by having the park's services cut off so Hank can teach them all how to provide for themselves using good old ''hard work''. [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere The hippies are gone by sundown.]]
* TheUnnamed store owner in ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyB'' is a walking hippie archetype, complete with a beard you could get lost in.
* Tree Hugger from the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E7MakeNewFriendsButKeepDiscord "Make New Friends But Keep Discord"]] looks and talks like a archetypal hippie, and her speech is usually accompanied by the sound of a sitar. She also knew exactly what to do when the Smooze started to spread all over the Gala's hall, while everypony else was freaking out over it.
* Miss Grotke from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''
* The best friend/owner of ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'', Shaggy, is the fully G-rated comic relief version of this trope, and has remained this way in every incarnation.
* Mona Simpson, Homer's estranged mother from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. In one episode, Homer himself dabbled in the hippie lifestyle. Homer kept insisting on living TheThemeParkVersion of being a hippie, while the real hippies in the episode (one of whom was played by Creator/GeorgeCarlin) lived fairly normal, unassuming hippie lives.
** Appropriately enough for ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Mona's character has been [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] in each of her subsequent appearances. Originally, she was supposed to be more of a New Left radical than a hippie (which is why there was a massive police manhunt for her). Then again, in RealLife just about anyone who was "unconventional" in some way during the 1960s probably fell under the "hippie" umbrella.
** There's been a few other generic hippies in Springfield, such as the woman running the New Age shop with the sensory deprivation tanks, and the guy who runs the recycling stand:
-->'''Mr. Burns:''' And our hemp-smoking friend! Shine on, you crazy diamond.
-->'''Hippie:''' Sounds like somebody's livin' in the past! Contemporize, man!
* Cartman from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' hates hippies with a passion, to the extent that he runs a hippie extermination business. While Cartman [[AxeCrazy has issues]], the hippie swarm is definitely the villain of this episode.
** These hippies seem to vary between traditional dirty party-hippies and upper-class Boulderite socialist-elitist hippies. To a modern Coloradoan, of course, the difference between the two is quite superficial.
** ''South Park'' also has the occasionally recurring character Aging Hippy Liberal Douche, who is... well... an aging hippy liberal douche. He's usually paired off with Pissed Off White Trash Racist Conservative so that the South Park writers can mock both sides of the political spectrum at the same time.
* Shirley from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''.
** She's more of a ValleyGirl with a few New Age affectations.
* The titular Wander of ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' probably was this on purpose, considering Creator/CraigMcCracken's love for TheSixties.
** He's easygoing, very much so, and just wants people to love each other and have fun, but he would never force them to do so. As his name implies, he has no true home - or rather, his home is wherever his favorite people are! He's perfectly happy [[NatureHero eating and sleeping out in nature,]] not to mention a textbook FriendToAllLivingThings, and loves to improve the mood with a tune on his banjo. Sounds like a new-age [[RecycledInSPACE galaxy-wandering space]] hippie, all right.
** Major Threat even more so, thanks to a HeelFaceTurn from Wander. It helps that he's an expy of [[Film/TheBigLebowski The Dude]].
* The pro-space travel, protesting group in ''WesternAnimation/TheZetaProject'' called the Moonies are basically hippies, down to tie dye, speech patterns and peaceful rallies against the National Security Agency's increased police brutality. They aid the protagonists in one episode and are optimistic about mankind's destiny despite living in a crappy semi-cyberpunk universe.

* Explore the San Francisco Bay Area a bit and you're bound to find a few of these somewhere. Especially common in the city of Berkeley and the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco.
** One suspects that much of the scenery is really the result of market-savvy former hippies [[TheThemeParkVersion playing up the simplified stereotypes for all they're worth]] [[ModernMinstrelsy in order to amuse and pander to uninformed outsiders]]. The "multicolored tie-dyed clothing," for example, [[UnbuiltTrope wasn't even that ubiquitous in the '60s]]. If you look at quite a few of the pictures of "flower children" from that era, you'll notice that they're often wearing fairly drab clothing (partly, of course, a sign of their aloofness from middle-class materialism, but also simply to keep warm -- San Francisco can get plenty chilly!). Most real hippies wore ordinary jeans and sweaters for every day and saved the colorful costumes for parades, dances and other special occasions. [[http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,878729-1,00.html "Tie-dye" did not actually become stylish until 1970]] -- three years after the Summer of Love.[[note]]Digger Judy Goldhaft-Berg used to teach tie-dye at the "Trip Without A Ticket" free store in early '67, but you didn't see a lot of it around compared to, say, embroidery or appliques.[[/note]] The tie-dyed shtick is probably either {{Flanderization}} of a minor fad or marketers confusing the hippie subculture with the "glitter rock" and disco subcultures of the '70s.
* Months before the alleged "Summer of Love", so many predators -- especially coke and meth dealers -- had moved in on the district having heard of the coming influx of kids, that the real hippies were starting to leave. Many of them bought a few acres in rural areas, established single-family farms, collective farms or {{Commune}}s, and practiced organic farming, starting the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Back-to-the-land_movement Back to the Land movement]] and founding ''[[http://www.motherearthnews.com Mother Earth News]]''. This magazine, which still exists, gave us a kind of sub-Trope Namer for hippies as having "left the cities, moved to Oregon, mellowed out and raised potatoes." You can read about them in Carter Taylor Seaton's book ''Hippie Homesteaders'' about the many who made West Virginia their home, Michael Watts' ''West of Eden'' about northern California, and Margaret Grundstein's ''Naked in the Woods'', narrating the unvarnished and messy reality of building a successful (or not) community in said environment.

* Merry Prankster, community organizer and engineer [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stewart_Brand Stewart Brand]] founded the [[http://www.wholeearth.com Whole Earth Catalog]] and [[http://www.wholeearth.com/history-coevolution-quarterly.php Co-Evolution Quarterly]] to give hippies access to tools for a better life. Many hippies (even Creator/RichardBrautigan) believed in the life-changing potential of personal computers before they even existed; Brand also co-founded [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_WELL The Well]], one of the first online communities, in 1985, long before the Internet.
* As far as the "New Age" part, architect [[https://www.hos.com/shbio.html Stephen Hill]] dropped out to become a sound engineer who in 1973 created [[http://www.hos.com Music from the Hearts of Space]] featuring New Age, world music, jazz, progressive rock and more.
