** This is also averted with Akira, the protagonist of the original ''Devilman'' series. Whenever he returns to his human form he is left completely naked, as his transformations are of the ShapeshiftingExcludesClothing variety.

* In ''XamdLostMemories'', turning into a Xam'd apparently rips through your clothes, yet when you turn back, the clothes are fully intact. Somehow. The similar Humanform Weapons also seem to tear through their clothing but we never really see what happens when they turn back to human (IF they even can).
* Lampshaded by Yusuke in ''YuYuHakushoAbridged''. "His pants know just when to stop ripping, don't they."

* Jiro, the title android in ''[[{{Kikaider}} Android Kikaider: The Animation]]''. His [[TransformationSequence transformation]] from [[HenshinHero "human"]] form to [[PersonOfMassDestruction "robotic superweapon"]] shows not only his clothes but his ''face'' being shredded, revealing the "real" Jiro underneath. But after the MonsterOfTheWeek has been defeated, the next shot of Jiro is almost always his unscathed human form. I'd love to have his tailor. (The skin and clothes are actually made by {{nanomachines}} out of random particles in the area, So...)

* ''{{Scryed}}'' has a couple of takes on this. Some of the time, armor-like Alters just layer on top of clothes, but in the case of Kazuma's Shell Bullet arm, his actual arm is deconstructed and rebuilt (or just outright vaporized). When he changes back, the clothing on that arm is still there. Could be justified by the fact that they psychically rearrange matter to accomplish these feats and just instinctively know how to put things back together.

* In ''BlackBloodBrothers'', when the "Old Blood" vampire Cain Warlock transforms into his [[WolfMan blue wolf]] form, his clothes are torn to shreds and he triples in size, but those trousers remain unscathed.

* Totally averted in ''DevilmanLady'', where Jun destroys her garments every time she transforms into a muscular she-devil. Her handler Asuka remarks she needs to remember to bring extra clothes for her after missions.

* Kenshiro from ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' has a tendency to "[[HulkingOut hulk out]]" when facing foes he particularly despises or has difficulty defeating, destroying his jacket and undershirt in the process. He seems to have an infinite supply of these jackets and undershirts, as they are always replaced without explanation by the beginning of the next episode -- and sometimes, by the beginning of the next ''scene''. Justified in that he quite literally absorbs it and re-extrudes it when he's finished.
* Averted in ''FruitsBasket''; the characters transform back from their animal forms ''au naturel''. The exception being when [[spoiler:Kyo transforms into the super-ultra cursed version of the cat, and gets a pair of his very own magic pants even when in the form of a...lizard-cat-thing. Justified in that the size difference was small enough that they simply stayed on, rather than fall off as they do in most other cases]].

* The anime version of ''[[ViolinistofHameln The Violinist of Hamelin]]'' is particularly {{egregious}} about this, especially in the second season. Every time Hamel [[spoiler:transforms into a demon]] his clothes explode off him dramatically, and they're almost always completely intact when he changes back. Made even more painfully obvious when his all-black outfit that Flute made him apparently becomes ''his trademark'' that people recognize him by in his travels. What the hell...?

* ''MagicalProjectS'' in an episode, both Sasami and Pixy Misa [[OvernightAgeUp age to teenagers]] and grow and become very tall, yet their clothes remain the same. Oddly enough, when the potion's side-effects kick in [[FountainOfYouth and they turn into babies]], Sasami's clothes look huge on her while Misa's change along with her.

** When the saiyans transform into Giant Apes, they are naked when they change back to normal. In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Freiza's army, including the Saiyans, [[JustifiedTrope wore special armor]] that was ''literally'' one size fits all. Even when Vegeta transforms into a Giant Ape inside them, they still fit. Bulma later replicates this armor.
*** This is pushed a bit far in the Bardock special, characters that are clearly wearing cloth material in addition to their spandex or whatever bodysuits still have it on them in Oozaru form, but despite being stretched out so much, it ''still'' wears as loosely as it did on their normal sized form.

to:

** When In ''Manga/DragonBall'', Goku {{lampshades}} this in first fight against Piccolo Jr. when the saiyans latter grew to [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever gigantic proportions]], with Goku asking how his pants grew with him.

transform into Giant Apes, Apes: they are naked when they change back to normal. normal.
** Many characters, most notably Goku during his first fight with Vegeta, suffer ClothingDamage after getting smacked around by enough energy blasts. Even if the rest of their outfit is torn or blasted to shreds, their pants will ''always'' remain more or less intact.

** Then there's Takane, who, tired of ClothingDamage, starts wearing literal magic clothes that double as armour. However, they have the glaring flaw of having NoOntologicalInertia (as she experienced by fainting after a fight with Negi), and are of little use against [[AntiMagic Asuna]]... proving that in some cases, regular pants are superior.

* First averted, then played straight in ''NewGrapplerBaki'' due to an art continuity error. After Dorian [[spoiler:gets set on fire]], he inexplicably goes from being in his underwear (with his pants gone entirely) to wearing the convenient remains of his sweat pants over a couple of chapters.
