* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** While the show rarely shies away from nudity in any situation, Joffrey's reaction to Tyrion's "name-day gift" is singularly distressing. His treatment of the two women is taken far beyond [[FetishRetardant sadism]].
** Also Jaime in the Harrenhal baths with Brienne. Now normally Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is pretty pleasant to look at [[MrFanservice both in universe and out]], but not when he's utterly filthy from weeks on the road and being literally pushed face first into shit, [[spoiler:recently missing a hand]] and utterly depressed and broken while deliriously recounting the worst moments of his life. The effect isn't so much horror as with Joffrey above as it is [[TearJerker utterly heartbreaking]].
** Season 2 gives us Carice Van Houten as Melisandre. Her first nude scene is {{Fanservice}}, while when she shows Davos Seaworth what she has under her cloak...she's suddenly pregnant. And about to give birth. [[spoiler: To a creepy shadow monster.]] The night isn't the only thing dark and full of terrors.
*** And then she gives us another one in the third season where she seduces [[spoiler:Gendry]] which quickly turns nightmarish as soon as she binds his hands and feet and places ''leeches'' on him, including one on his [[GroinAttack Most Sensitive Area]]. And then uses the blood extracted by them for a dark ritual. Eugh.
** The first episode of the first season also has Daenerys naked in a bath, but [[BrotherSisterIncest her brother's extremely unsettling comments about her body]] and her dead-eyed expression that suggests he does this regularly sap any sense of eroticism from it.
** The scene where two girls come and attempt to seduce Theon...who is currently being held prisoner by Ramsay Snow, possibly the single most sadistic character in the entire series. The entire scene is played up for all the dread it is worth, with Theon terrified that Ramsay is coming back and, the former CasanovaWannabe, is reduced to a wreck, suspicious of the women almost certainly working for Ramsay. Sure enough, [[MindRape it's just another cruel mind game]]. And then Ramsay ''really'' [[GroinAttack gets ugly]].
** Season 4 boasts the most extreme example - the bath scene with Theon and Ramsay. Now, normally two good-looking guys, one of whom is naked and being washed by the other, would unquestionably be fanservice. However, when the guy doing the washing single-handedly flayed and castrated the washee... {{Squick}}. The whole scene is like some sort of a hideous parody of HoYay.
** At the end of the first episode of season 6, Melisandre strips naked... [[spoiler:than takes off her necklace, and reveals her true form: a ancient, hunch-backed crone with grey skin and wispy, strung out, bone white hair.]]
** Daenerys' attempted assassin is forced to walk naked behind her horse until he collapses.
** Grand Maester Pycelle exercising in a see-through bed gown in "Fire and Blood".
** Theon flirts with and gropes a girl on Pyke who turns out to be his sister.
** Beric Dondarrion's ShirtlessScene is entirely devoted to recounting his innumerable nasty scars.
** The sex scene between Jaime and Cersei in "Breaker of Chains." Both are played by attractive people but their characters are twins, they are right next to their son's dead body, and consent is... questionable to say the least.
** Craster's daughter-wives display plenty of skin in "Oathkeeper" but it's not even slightly sexy since most are being raped and beaten.
** Margaery's attempted seduction of Tommen is rendered creepy by the age difference.
** The High Septon, a fat old man, being made to walk naked through the streets while his hands are caned every time he tries to cover himself.
** Cersei's nude walk of shame in "Mother's Mercy" as the citizens of King's Landing scream at her and pelt her with garbage and excrement is not very sexy.

** One could argue that the fangirls finally get some nice Fanservice from Castiel in season nine, when he ''strips down to his boxers''. However, his reason for doing so is that [[spoiler:he is now human, and is attempting to wash his clothes at a laundromat since they're filthy and bloodstained from the [[FirstDayFromHell horrible day]] he's had. On top of everything, he ultimately decides to abandon his clothes, losing the [[IconicOutfit trench coat]] he'd worn for five seasons.]] This is depressing enough to somewhat dampen the joy.

* ''Series/ATouchOfCloth'': Series 2 explicitly parodies this by replacing the female lead with an obese man for a scene in which she gets out of bed naked.

* ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'' doesn't stint of the Fanservice from its lead characters[[note]]alright, not much Aria[[/note]], not least from Hanna. For instance the moment Hanna is a T-shirt and panties being sprayed with water. [[spoiler: So she can be tortured with a cattle prod by her kidnapper Elliott. And we ''do'' get to see the evidence later on.]]

* Played for laughs, but also very effectively, in a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch called "The Librarian", in which Creator/MargotRobbie played a sexy high school librarian. On being told that one of them fancies her, she takes off her glasses, lets down her hair and starts flicking it around...whereupon her hair starts to fall out. She then peels a banana and eats the peel, sucks a lollipop and eats the whole thing, takes out her false teeth and reveals that she has ScaryTeeth, pulls her shirt up to show that her midriff has tattoos of Haley Joel Osment, goes up to another sexy librarian and gives her a NeckSnap and...it just gets worse from there.

** And in the episode "The Confession". The sight of the normally gorgeous JamieBamber lying on a bed, wearing nothing but boxer shorts (he was playing the PatientOfTheWeek), is equally severely undercut by the fact that ''his skin is peeling off''.

* Creator/JamieBamber seems to like teasing his adoring fans by occasionally playing this out. Aside from the abovementioned weight gain in BSG and skin-peeling disease in Series/{{House}}, he was slathered with zombie makeup for his guest appearance on GhostWhisperer, and admits that the scene in ''The Smoke'' where his character [[spoiler: pulls down his pants to reveal the horrific burn scars on his legs and genitals]] is what made him decide to take on the role.

** Holosuite. Kira's body. We pan up, we pan up and... her head has been replaced with [[spoiler:Quark's (The resident big-headed ugly (male) alien).]] This is actually in-universe fan disservice as well - a creepy guy paid Quark very well to have Kira's figure digitized into the holosuite for... unsavory purposes. Kira found out about it. It's her revenge.
** Deep Space Nine also had an episode where [[HotForPreacher Vedek Bareil]] is having a surreal vision and is hugged from behind by who he thinks is Kira ... only to turn around and see a naked Ky Winn. What is seen cannot be unseen.
** Then there's the episode "Profit and Lace" where Quark [[spoiler:undergoes an EasySexChange to seal a business deal instead of his mother.]]
