** As usual, Donald Duck always wears a shirt without any pants.
** When entering the Timeless River world in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', Goofy sports his look in his older appearances, where he wore a vest and shoes, but no pants.
** In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII'', all 3 main characters in the ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' world wear shirts without any pants nor shoes, which fits the fact that nobody in the ''Monsters'' universe ever wears the latter 2.

** It is unclear if the Rito in VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild are wearing puffy pants or if they're actually their pelvic-feathers, but if it's the latter, then they are certainly this trope, as they wear some form of top-wear.

** King Dedede's design in the early games, ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa'', and the official artwork for ''VideoGame/KirbySqueakSquad'' has him wearing a red coat, a crown, and a waistband, but no pants. His current design since ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' is a little debatable, as his entire body is now cream-colored instead of blue.

* 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)
