It becomes a BrickJoke when, after a long and dangerous action sequence ending with a car crash, they're arrested by a policeman who rebuffs their claims of innocence by asking why they're wearing those handkerchieves.

* Lampshaded in and SBS ''Manga/OnePiece'': when the crew is getting their treasure evaluated, a sneaky guy wearing a traditional sneak handkerchief can be seen outside the door, apparently in wait. Oda admitted that yes, he's a burglar, and yes, he was planning to rob the Strawhats, but, [[MuggingTheMonster wisely]], opted out at the last second.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' series, there is a cranky mouse villager by the name of Rizzo, appearing in all games apart from ''Wild World'' and ''Pocket Camp''. He has the bandana around his face, suspicious-looking half-closed eyes, and raised eyebrows. Even his ''New Leaf'' picture quotes in the different languages reference his appearance. (Though of course, given that [[SugarBowl this is the]] ''[[SugarBowl Animal Crossing]]'' [[SugarBowl series]] we're talking about, he isn't actually a thief; he just resembles one.)
