** In the upcoming 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!]]

* [[BreathofFire Katt/Rinpoo]] from Breath of Fire II walks around the whole time wearing a purple top and leggings, but no pants, with no visible reaction from anyone on her state of...erm, undress. However, the bottom half of her body has fur while her top half has normal "human" skin.
* The main characters of SuperMonkeyBall are of both types: Aiai and Gongon are of the pantless variety, and Baby and Meemee of the Shirtless variety.

* In Nintendo's social simulator video game ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'', most animals wear shirts 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, 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.''
** Sheep villagers wear shirts as scarves instead, making them accessory-wearing instead.
* 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).
* VideoGame/{{Bubsy}} wore a shirt and no pants. Various promotional materials for the game made a point of mentioning this.
** Bubsy's nephew Terrence, introduced in the second game and also appearing in the animated adaptation of the game, also had the pantsless look. Additionally, Bubsy's best friend/unwilling sidekick Arnold the Armadillo is completely nude.

** 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.

** [[VideoGame/{{Banjo-Kazooie}} Banjo]] never wears a shirt, but is never seen without his yellow cargo shorts and blue backpack. Additionally, [[MorphicResonance all his transformations keep the shorts and backpack]]. Yes, this is probably the only series where you will see a washing machine with shorts. Interestingly enough, his sister Tooty is fully clothed ([[BarefootCartoonAnimal aside from shoes]]), his friend Bottles wears only a vest, and his companion Kazooie wears nothing at all.

* Some of the beast tribes in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' wear some form of clothing that covers up their genitals, but they are naked for the most part; the lizardmen Amalj'aa wear a large metal codpiece on their crotch and wear various forms of jewelry on their necks and arms. The Ixal, a bird-man race, wear what is basically a jockstrap and sometimes straps on their chest. The Sahagin are fish-like creatures that wear a mixture of a codpiece and loincloth while wearing various jewelry elsewhere. The Kobolds are the only beast tribe that are fully clothed.

* ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' has the 'pants only' form of the trope with Foxy, whose torn brown pants fail to cover his bare metal legs. Ironically, this makes him the ''most'' dressed of the killer animatronics--the rest only wear accessories.
