** Jose Josie Packard is shown smoking using a cigarette holder just before it is revealed that she is not so innocent and is scheming with Benjamin Horne

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{VideoGame/Yakuza 1}}'': Reina, in the "Rich East Asian Woman"-mold, smokes a long slender pipe that manages to invoke a cigarette holder too.


* Father, the BigBad from ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', has a pipe, appropriate since he's patterned after a StandardFiftiesFather. Another villain, Mr. Boss, has a cigar.



* Cyril Sneer from ''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons''.

* Cyril Sneer from ''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons''.''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons'' is always seen with a half-smoked stogie in his mouth.



to:

* The smoker is immortal, magical, or otherwise immune to the negative effects of smoking.


* ''Anime/DragonBallGT'': The Dragon of the Black Smoke smokes a cigar and is literally MadeOfEvil.



* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'''s {{Anti Hero}}es mainly smoke cigarettes, with the main cigar-smoker of the cast being [[MagnificentBastard Balalaika]].
* The three main characters of ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' frequently smoke cigarettes, with all of them leaning towards good. This is never mentioned by anyone in the show, giving the audience the impression that smoking instead became more commonplace in the future. Whether this is because the health issues are no longer a problem given superior medical technology or just because their line of work makes them unlikely to live long enough to worry about lung cancer is uncertain. The aesthetics of the show come from 1970's. Smoking is a part of the image.
** Lampshaded in an Adult Swim bumper that theorized that in the ''Cowboy Bebop'' universe, tobacco is classified as a food group.



* In a {{filler}} ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' case, there's an UpperClassTwit who smokes. He ends up as the victim of the week. [[spoiler: In fact, a guy who was jealous of him for fancying the same girl tried to use his smoking habits to go MurderTheHypotenuse by poisoning his cigarette filters. The twit had the habit of cutting said filters off, so he dodged death barely... And then he got killed by someone else.]]
** In another case, there's a VERY bitchy chain smoker who is one of the suspects for killing a loan shark. [[spoiler: She's the SympatheticMurderer, as she killed said loan shark for driving her boyfriend to suicide.]]
* ''Anime/DragonBallGT'': The Dragon of the Black Smoke smokes a cigar and is literally MadeOfEvil.
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''
** UnluckyEverydude Jean Havoc is always smoking a cigarette, and is definitely a good guy. However the real reason the author made him a smoker was [[spoiler:just so he could throw Mustang a lighter in that ONE SCENE]].
** Pinako Rockbell, the Elric brothers' surrogate grandmother, smokes a pipe. As someone wise and grandmotherly, she is allowed.
* When [[spoiler: Tsubaki Kasugano]] from ''Manga/FutureDiary'' shows [[TheFakeCutie her true colors]] to Yukki and Yuno, she pulls out a pipe and smokes on it. Definitely evil smoking.
* Hijikata Toshirou of ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' is known for his chain cigarette smoking, and falls under both the sexy and badass exceptions. The mayonnaise bottle lighter ruins the effect somewhat. Or enhances it, whatever works for you. Quite a few characters in the series smoke, including Otose who smokes almost as much as Hijikata. The main villain Takasugi Shinsuke however smokes a long pipe. Tsukuyo also smokes a pipe, but though she was introduced as a villain she soon became one of the good guys.
* Mr. Fujisawa from ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'' smokes regular cigarettes - and drinks alcohol, too - despite being one of the protagonists. [[spoiler:It should be noted that drinking and smoking are "bad" for him in El Hazard, but not just in the ways you'd expect - he's MadeOfIron and has SuperStrength there, but both habits significantly inhibit his power; when he hasn't smoked or drinked in a while, he's a NighInvulnerable, unstoppable [[TheJuggernaut juggernaut]].]]
* [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Sir Integra Hellsing]] is known for smoking manly cigars, both because she's a badass, and because she's a {{Bifauxnen}}.
* The Red King, Mikoto Suoh, and his second-in-command, Izumo Kusanagi, from ''Anime/{{K}}'' are the "sexy" and "badass" variety.
** The Blue King, Reisi Munakata, is also both sexy and badass, ''and'' only smokes when he's stressed (and [[FoeRomanceSubtext thinking about Mikoto]]).
* Gokudera from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn!'' is a chainsmoker and makes it look really cool - partly justified in that he needs it to light his bombs and cuts down when he gets new powers.
* Alan of ''Manga/{{MAR}}'' is a cigar-smoker who meets the "badass" exception.
* ''Manga/{{Mushishi}}'' protagonist Ginko is an unusual example of a non-badass good guy who smokes cigarillos - he's rarely seen without one. Likely more of a tool than a vice, though, as the smoke they give off keeps [[TheFairFolk mushi]] from getting too close for comfort.
* Asuma from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' met every condition for the suspension, he was even going to be a father soon. [[spoiler:Shikamaru however didn't quite make the cut and thus, his smoking had to be censored in the anime. He carried a lighter with him that he turned on and off in the deceased Asuma's memory instead.]]

[[ButtMonkey He gets a lot of abuse for everyone's entertainment]].
* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'':
** At least one person per antagonistic unit smokes (with
the suspension, he was even going exception of the Hiruma Brothers and Woo Heishin/the Su-shin).
** Jin-e Udo not just smokes, but uses how long it takes him to finish a cigarette to determine how long it would take to defeat Kenshin as both Kenshin and Battosai.
** The Tokyo Oniwabanshu's employer, Takeda Kanryuu, prefers the stereotypical rich man's smoke: cigars.
** Shishio Makoto uses the more traditional kiseru, which fits more with the time period than an 'evil must smoke' cliche.
** From the Jinchuu Arc, Otowa Hyouko of the Six Comrades uses a hookah, and in a flashback, the traitor I'izuka is seen once smoking a kiseru.
** Saitou is just badass enough
to be a father soon. [[spoiler:Shikamaru however didn't quite make the cut and thus, his smoking had 'good smoking' exception.
* ''Manga/SailorMoon '': In her original incarnation, Sailor Jupiter was
to be censored in the anime. He carried leader of a lighter with him that he turned on gang of female {{Delinquents}}, which included smoking. When the idea of her being a ''sukeban'' was scrapped, so was the idea of her smoking.
* Lots of characters in ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' smoke (and indeed in Minekura's other works). It tends to be thematically related to "life"--as a way of savoring the moment or as a fuck you to mortality. Sanzo, Gojyo, Tenpou, Kenren,
and off in Koumyou smoke or smoked, and are all good guys. Koumyou smokes a long-stemmed pipe rather than cigarettes for added traditionalism and fatherly benevolence. [[SchizoTech Tobacco products are far from the deceased Asuma's memory instead.]]only anachronism in a series supposedly set in ancient China.]]
* Stein from ''Manga/SoulEater'' is almost certainly a "badass" exception for good smoking. On the other hand, his addiction to cigarettes is also used as a metaphor for [[TheCorruption his insanity]]. So it's a mix of Evil Smoking and EvilIsCool.

A scene that Marvel would never allow in the modern era, since Kitty was only 15 at the time.
*** ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} used to smoke cigars, but eventually gave up the habit, specifically directly after losing his adamantium to ComicBook/{{Magneto}}'s cruelty; his healing power got extremely taxed during that incident, which may have something to do with it (in-universe, at least).

** Dr. Stephen Strange, the man who eventually became Comicbook/DoctorStrange, is shown lighting a cigarette ''in the operating room'' immediately after performing a surgery. In context, it indicates how self-centered he was.
** On the evil side of the equation, Bullseye was often seen lighting up cigarettes before Marvel banned them.

* In the WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck comicverse, Donald himself smoked until the climate changed. Now only bad guys such as Black Pete are seen to smoke.
* If a witch in ''Witch Girls'' or ''ComicBook/WitchGirlsTales'' is smoking, they're a wicked witch. Especially if they're a child at the time. Cigarette holders are favored, but not mandatory.
* ComicBook/ScottPilgrim has a personal aversion to smoking to the point that he believes smoking to be a sign of being evil.
* ''WesternAnimation/FrostyTheSnowman'', according to Wiki/TheOtherWiki.
* Emperor Zombie in ''ComicBook/TheAmazingScrewOnHead'' actually smokes a ''scholar'' to learn everything he knows. Miraculously, it actually works. The fact that he was smoking and killing a person at the exact same time kind of seals the deal on that one.
* GreatDetective from Germany, ''ComicStrip/NickKnatterton'', smokes pipe. He's from TheFifties.



* ''Creator/MarvelComics'':
** On the evil side of the equation, Bullseye was often seen lighting up cigarettes before Marvel banned them.
** In reprints of the original 1940's ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, Steve Rogers can be seen smoking a pipe. This gets the "correct to the era" exemption (probably why Marvel didn't photoshop the pipe out).
*** His ArchEnemy the ComicBook/RedSkull smokes a cigarette on a holder, often using it to conceal his [[PerfectPoison Dust of Death]] and use it on an enemy.
** Dr. Stephen Strange, the man who eventually became Comicbook/DoctorStrange, is shown lighting a cigarette ''in the operating room'' immediately after performing a surgery. In context, it indicates how self-centered he was.
** Before the climate changed against smoking, [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]] used to smoke a pipe.
** The Thing has been known to chomp on cigars, as has ComicBook/NickFury. This was because their shared co-creator Creator/JackKirby loved cigars, and put elements of himself into both characters.
** ComicBook/HowardTheDuck had a cigar.
** J. Jonah Jameson chomps on a cigar. He's a blowhard, but a good guy. [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Kinda.]]
** Mob boss ComicBook/TheKingpin originally had a cigarette holder, but switched to villainous cigars after they went out of style.
** ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen'': Xavier, a wise and fatherly figure, smokes in a pipe. Wolverine smokes cigars and fills the room with smoke, just because he's so jerkass.
** ''The ComicBook/XMen'':
*** ComicBook/{{Gambit}} was known to smoke in his early appearances in the 90s.
*** ComicBook/KittyPryde only smokes when she's been somehow turned evil or possessed by something evil. The regular, non-possessed Kitty learned a long time ago that she had no interest in smoking after trying one of Wolverine's cigars in a moment of extreme frustration. A scene that Marvel would never allow in the modern era, since Kitty was only 15 at the time.
*** ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} used to smoke cigars, but eventually gave up the habit, specifically directly after losing his adamantium to ComicBook/{{Magneto}}'s cruelty; his healing power got extremely taxed during that incident, which may have something to do with it (in-universe, at least).

* ''ComicStrip/ThePhantom'''s enemies often smoked to indicate they were evil. Whereas cigarettes and cigars were often prominent, cigarette holders were reserved for the incredibly pompous, egotistical blowhards, such as General Tara, a self-centered dictator who brandished one easily a foot in length. It was an effective touch by artist Sy Barry as the accessory was obviously intended to affect a superior, haughty air, and when used by a fat, barbaric paramilitary type, very effete. When he was feeling his most smug and content, he blew smoke rings, often while anticipating some sadistic act, such as torturing the Phantom's fiancée, Diana Palmer in "The Tyrant of Tarakimo." In the story's sequel, he huffs lazy smoke rings from a massively ornate throne to indicate his satisfaction after his henchmen successfully kidnap Diana, presenting her to him in harem outfit.

* In ''ComicBook/BlakeAndMortimer'', the two heroes are often seen smoking pipe. Olrik, their {{Archenemy}}, is often shown with a cigarette holder.
* In ''ComicBook/AstroCity,'' this is played straight with Julius Furst, a CigarChomper of the old school.

* The movie ''Film/ThankYouForSmoking'' (set in the early '90s) featured this prominently, pointing out the idea of Hollywood getting paid to advertise smoking, as Big Tobacco was trying to find a mass market appeal again while facing allegations that cigarettes cause cancer. For extra irony, the film never actually shows anyone smoking.

** Mr Egbert is an example of Good Smoking - he smokes an old-fashioned pipe almost constantly (his online handle is even 'pipefan[[ArcNumber 413]]'), and is portrayed as a BumblingDad and DotingParent who genuinely cares about his son.
** Snowman, on the other hand, is an example of Evil Smoking, complete with a cigarette holder she likes to [[spoiler: stab people with because it is also a lance]].
** This being ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', it eventually gets UpToEleven when we see John's Dad's WALLET MODUS contains, among other things, a pile of pipes that is about the same size as John, as well as 10 ''tons'' of pipe tobacco.
* ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons'': TheDon Omun Vash smokes a water pipe on his throne while being interrogated about his criminal activities.

* In the "Bare Breasted Brawl" storyline of ''Webcomic/TheBlondeMarvel'', Victoria smokes a cigarillo to make her breasts larger.
* Webcomic/DominicDeegan smoked a pipe until his younger brother accidentally healed his lungs.

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' uses the badass variant of Good Smoking very briefly and even then it seems to be used solely as setup to identify a character's silhouette.
* ''Webcomic/TheThrillingAdventuresOfLovelaceAndBabbage'': Ada Lovelace, while not a pipe smoker in reality, has been given one for the purposes of this comic. It does, however, represent Isambard Kingdom Brunel's 40-a-day cigar habit fairly accurately.

* Used to varying degrees in ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG''. There were a number of characters who smoked for varying reasons. Cigarettes were commonly invoked by criminals or people with a shady past like Trigger, his partners, Snake, and Montoya, though granted they were also used by the comparatively more honest [[HardboiledDetective Detective Bogart]]. Clint Wayne often invoked the CigarChomper method which established him as a badass [[TheGunslinger gunslinger]], though also justified by [[ItMakesSenseInContext him coming from a Western community]]. Meanwhile Angel Eyes likes to use the DistinguishedGentlemansPipe.



* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', Commissioner Gordon is seen to smoke a pipe in the first three seasons, but ''The New Batman Adventures'' depicted him without it.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Bravestarr}}'', Tex-Hex's henchman Scuzz smokes cigars, and it is clearly hurting him; he coughs and wheezes constantly. He's often the butt of many jokes about it, even by Hex's other henchmen.
** Scuzz even gets an extremely rare villainous AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle speech, in which he admits that he wishes he'd never started smoking and advises the viewers to learn his lesson the easy way.
* Apparently supporting Bob Clampett's statement that WesternAnimation/BugsBunny was a take on Groucho Marx, the quazy wabbit has many times in his career been seen enjoying cigars.
** At the end of "Herr Meets Hare," Bugs dresses up as UsefulNotes/JosefStalin and smokes a big pipe. He says to the audience in Stalin's voice, "Does your tobacco taste different lately?" (referencing an ad slogan for a pipe tobacco company.)



** "WesternAnimation/GravityFalls" shows this in an episode featuring living wax museum which includes a Grouch Marx who appears to be holding... nothing. He even lampshades this by asking, "Hey, why is there nothing in my hand?"

* Bender, the nominally evil robot in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', is frequently shown with beer and a cigar, particularly in his more selfish and narcissistic moments. He explains to Fry that he needs the alcohol to power his fuel cells, but the cigar just makes him look [[SmokingIsCool cool]].
* Paw Rugg from ''WesternAnimation/TheHillbillyBears'' smokes a corncob pipe. So does his wife, Maw.
* In ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'',
** "WesternAnimation/GravityFalls" Dale Gribble is a chain smoker; having done it since the third grade because he doesn't know what to do with his hands. Cotton Hill smokes cigars when he celebrates. Hank Hill smokes rarely and it's typically when he's under a lot of stress.
** One episode had a big anti-smoking message, where even his wife and SON wound up addicted to it, so it was up to his non-smoker niece to smooth things over, even taking drastic measures by locking them in a room.
** There is
also shows the Debbie Grund two-part episode, where Hank takes up smoking in response to all the stress he is facing. At one point, Hank ends up smoking a marijuana cigarette by accident, which leads to [[MarijuanaIsLSD a hilariously exaggerated reaction]] by Hank.
* Next to spinach, the one item most iconic of {{Popeye}} the Sailor Man is the corncob pipe he smokes. When Creator/{{CBS}} produced ''The All-New Popeye Hour'' cartoon show for Saturday mornings, they {{retcon}}ned
this in an episode featuring living wax museum one of its short segments, which includes had Popeye speaking out against the hazards of smoking. ("I just uses me pipe for tootin'!")

* In the first three seasons of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', quite
a Grouch Marx who appears to few one-shot characters would be holding... nothing. He seen smoking, typically villains or crooked characters, such as the [[CigarChomper cigar-chomping]] lawyer F. Lee Barnum whom even lampshades this smokes his cigar in a courtroom (from "Pickles vs. Pickles"), the cigar-smoking manager of Greenstreet's supermarket (from "The Case of the Missing Rugrat"), and the [[StupidCrooks bumbling crook]] Mike, whom always has a cigarette dangling in his mouth (from "Ruthless Tommy").

* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'': The Charmed Ones were shown smoking only twice in the series, both time cigarettes: adolescent Paige as part of her teenage rebel phase, and Phoebe in an alternate reality where she was trapped in a broken marriage to Cole, disillusioned about her life and associating with demons.
