* In ''{{ComicBook/Asterix}} the Legionary'', Obélix is distracted by the lovely Panacea walking by, and walks into a tree... [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength knocking it over]].
** Likewise, in ''{{ComicBook/Asterix}} in Egypt'', Cleopatras nose is very distracting (but only leads to verbal accidents).
* Seen every so often in ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' with characters of either gender. Gina Diggers herself isn't above being distracted by a nice piece of beefcake, for example.

* In an early ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'' story some crooks fighting Batman and Robin get distracted when Batgirl checks her leg for a run in her tights. Batman later says that her feminine vanity came in handy, but she knew exactly what she was doing.
* When Katherine "Kate" Kane was just getting involved in crimefighting, before she first donned the ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} costume, she was eavesdropping on several criminals in a bar as they were discussing their upcoming operation. During the conversation one of the men questions the other, Jackson, on if he was paying attention or not. Jackson explains that he was "admiring the view" and is seen openly staring at Kate, then turns to the other man and dares him to say he was not having the exact same thoughts.

-->'''Abner:''' Hm. You must get that a lot.\\
'''Louisa Dem Five:''' Abner, I cause so many moral crises that the Slag Bah consider me a religion.
* During ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'', Comicbook/{{Superboy}} encounters Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} for the first time, his eyes gaze at her chest as he gags out "I was chest choking!"
* Seen every so often in ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' with characters of either gender. Gina Diggers herself isn't above being distracted by a nice piece of beefcake, for example.



* German comic ''ComicBook/LulaUndYankee'': Yankee and his buddies make a tour on a tractor through the countryside. Because this trope happens, they end up in a military area by accident. HilarityEnsues (well, kind of).
* Tara of ''ComicBook/QueenAndCountry'' sneaks through a military checkpoint despite carrying forged paperwork, driving a stolen car, and bleeding from a bullet wound by passing over a nude picture of herself with her ID. It backfires later when one of the guards identifies her specifically because the incident cemented her appearance in his mind.
* In "The Heroic Life and Mortifying Death of Comicbook/RadioactiveMan", when Plasmo the Mystic[[labelnote:more]]actually an Eczema imposter[[/labelnote]] has called the Superior Squadron to [[NumberOfTheBeast 665 1/2]] South Purgatory:
--> '''Captain Squid (thinking):''' ''Something isn't right here. Why did Plasmo contact us via ''video'' when he usually sends his ''astral image''? And why are we meeting ''here'', instead of at ''Plasmo's Sanctimonious Sanctum Sanctorum''? Maybe I should share these concerns with the rest of the group to prepare us for a possible catastrophe! ''Wow!'' Lure Lass sure looks great in her new mini-skirt! Now, what was I going to warn the group about?''
* Smurfette in ''ComicBook/TheSmurfs'' elicits this kind of response from her fellow Smurfs, as seen on the cover of the children's book ''Meet Smurfette''.



** This was also a RunningGag whenever he had to sneak past the bikini-clad Candi, Randi, and Bambi, three neighbors who frequently sunbathed on the roof of their building. (And to both Flash and Harry when they showed up at Peter and Mary Jane's housewarming party later.)

** She nearly got lynched by a town full of angry teenage girls whose boyfriends got distracted by her. And she only escaped because Alan M is her male counterpart.

The other Pussycats have stated that they have "more of a chance" to get dates in winter simply because she has to cover her figure with warmer clothing.

* ''ComicBook/{{Spider Man}}''; during 70s and 80s there was a RunningGag where Spidey was constantly trying to sneak past Candi, Randi, and Bambi, three neighbors who frequently sunbathed on the roof of their building. This Trope and the fact he was in costume made it difficult.

* An issue of ''X-Men: First Class'' detailing Comicbook/BlackWidow's first foray into catsuits had several concussed members of A.I.M. taking the time to discuss her, rather than their severe Natasha-inflicted injuries.

(She's won so many that her room is overwhelmed with trophies and awards.) to this end, her friends dress her up as a child, an old lady, and in a dog costume. Each time, she attracts little boys, old men, and other dogs.



* In (pre-ComicBook/{{New 52}}) DCComics, this was practically one of ComicBook/PowerGirl's established [[MostCommonSuperPower powers]]. Even Franchise/{{Batman}} resorted to asking her to distract male villains on occasion.

--> '''Katana''': But…The kid made it clear he wants to talk to Superman.
