** The official artwork of the [[RemovableShell shell-less Koopa Troopas]] for ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' shows them with a shirt and no pants. Later on in the series, they are shown with a shirt and shorts. Clothed or not, they all wear shoes and it matches the color of their shells. However, the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' series seems to imply that shells are effectively the same as clothing for Koopas, so make of that what you will.

** In the [[WesternAnimation/SlyCooper movie adaptation]], however, the characters have underwent a bit of an AnthropomorphicShift to wear pants, going for a more PettingZooPeople motif. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Il_NAXpDHZ4 Because American families want to see pants!]]

* In Nintendo's social simulator video game ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'', most animals wear shirts (sheeps wear scarves) but go without pants. (Humans do wear shorts.) Different species wear shirts of different lengths, and male characters of some species wear relatively long shirts (except in ''New Leaf'') , which some players confuse with cross-dressing. But interestingly enough, clothes are one size fits all: take a shirt off one character and put it on another character, and it magically fits. Somewhat hilariously and scarily {{lampshaded}} in one animal-to-animal conversation in ''Wild World'', where jock archtypes comment to nice archtypes that he split his pants doing squats. The nice animal begins to find this hilarious just before realising and commenting on the fact they ''don't wear pants.'' (Weirdly enough, both Kid Cat and Snake can say this conversation, despite both of them wearing pants)

* From the ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' series, Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, Cranky Kong, and Chunky Kong all wear shirts, but no pants. Swanky Kong was also this in Donkey Kong Country 2, but he later switched to FullyDressedCartoonAnimal in Donkey Kong Country 3. Ever since the Paon-developed games, some of the Kremlings that Donkey Kong fights wear pants and no shirt (possibly to tie into the pirate motif that K. Rool's empire inconsistently follows).

** Bowser rarely wears clothing, but for one occasion in ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' he is seen in a white tuxedo briefly, minus the pants. In general, Bowser wears a pair of black armbands, wristbands, and a neckband.
*** Super Mario Odyssey averts this, though, by making Bowser a FullyDressedCartoonAnimal.

*** Super Mario Odyssey would later see him have another wedding with Peach, but this time, he averts this, though, the HalfDressedCartoonAnimal trope, by making Bowser becoming a FullyDressedCartoonAnimal.FullyDressedCartoonAnimal instead.



** Several characters in the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' series, such as Diddy, Dixie, and Chunky, wear shirts (and in the former two's case, hats as well) but no pants.

* The ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' family is another pretty interesting example. The big guy himself wears nothing but a tie, Diddy settles for a shirt and hat, but some of the other members of the family, such as the other 3 main character in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' are more or less fully clothed. Even some of the Kremlings that Donkey Kong fights wear pants and no shirt (although that may simply tie into the pirate motif that K. Rool's empire inconsistently follows).

* Nearly all the Zoras (a race of fish-like people) in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' wear no clothing whatsoever. However, King Zora himself wears a tunic but no pants.

* Nearly all the Zoras (a race of fish-like people) in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' wear no clothing whatsoever. However, King Zora himself wears a tunic but no pants. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', the Zoras wear either a chest piece (if they're a soldier or a female NPC) or some form of a jewelry waistband. They wear nothing else, but, like the Zoras in ''Ocarina of Time'', they probably wear no clothing since they swim everywhere. Prince Sidon wears a cravat, despite not wearing a shirt or any other form of clothing.
