In ''Series/TheDefenders2017'', Elektra gets her iconic comics costume upon her resurrection, and often wears a long black coat over it for modesty.

* Both [=GoGo=] Tomago and Honey Lemon is ''Disney/BigHero6''. In the comics, [=GoGo’s=] costume consisted of a black bodysuit, a metallic corset which had no purpose other than propping up her breasts, and a thong made of the same material and Honey‘s outfit in the comics includes a crop top exposing her cleavage and [[BareYourMidriff her midriff]] with skintight pants, as shown [[http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/181/7/b/big_hero_6_concept__honey_lemon_by_pixel_saurus-d55eol7.jpg here]]. In the film, both wear more practical armor and Honey never shows more skin than anyone else.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' depicted Tifa Lockheart wearing a tight white t-shirt and mini skirt, with her BoobsOfSteel on prominent display. ''Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren'' gives her an outfit that covers more skin - also being worn looser, de-emphasising her breasts.
* In Greek mythology, Aphrodite is commonly depicted nude. ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' gives her a long dress to wear. Though a statue of her ([[AncientGrome or rather Venus]]) is depicted fully nude.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' does this with the YRP. In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' their outfits were quite {{Stripperiffic}}, but are slightly more modest when they appear in ''Kingdom Hearts''. Notably Rikku wears a bikini top in the former but it's a more modest midriff top in the latter. Additionally the girls are changed to fairies, making their appearances more cute instead of sexy. The same game has Tifa appearing in her ''Advent Children'' outfit rather than her vampier ''Final Fantasy VII'' gear.

** [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Brock]] goes from a WalkingShirtlessScene to an orange shirt and green vest in the original series, followed by a green shirt under a brown jacket with orange accents in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Advanced Generation]]'' and an orange-and-gray vest and green shirt in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Diamond & Pearl]]''. While this design choice would influence Brock's appearance in both [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Gen II]] and the [[VideoGameRemake remakes]] (particularly the latter), Brock's battle with Kiawe in [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon SM043]] has him [[BattleStrip remove his shirt]] as [[MythologyGag a nod]] to his original sprites, complete with Brock posing in the exact same manner by crossing his arms in front of his chest.

** [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlock Brock]] goes from a WalkingShirtlessScene to an orange shirt and green vest in the original series.
** Misty goes form a bikini top and swim trunks to a {{Shorttank}}. In the games she's rarely depicted far from her Gym, which has a pool, while in the anime she travels around and thus wearing a swimsuit wouldn't be suitable. Her design was later updated during ''Advanced Generation'' to cover her up more, instead of her baring her midriff. According to Episode 42 of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Sun & Moon]]'', Misty wears her original blue swimsuit underneath her clothes.
** Inverted with Sabrina, however, who now wears a miniskirt, albeit with thigh-high boots, whereas her original sprite had her with a t-shirt and pants.

* Sarada's design in the ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'' anime doesn't match her design as shown in the DistantFinale of the manga, despite the fact both depict her as an academy student. Her clothes are instead based on her design from the ''Boruto'' manga. Sarada's manga design is very controversial amongst fans due to being AgeInappropriateDress. Sarada's design in the anime was edited to add a shirt, instead of {{sarashi}}, and include pants.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'' is full of fanservice in both the manga and anime version, but the anime is somewhat tamer as it leaves out things like panty shots, naked asses and some sexual actions like Natsu grabbing Lucy's bare boobs. It also cuts longer fanservice scenes (unless they're very plot-relevant) from the broadcast episodes and use them for OVA's in which the series can get away with riskier things.

** In the anime, the citizens of the Empire wear Medieval style clothing instead of togas. Some started appearing in togas in episode 11. In the anime, togas and such seem to be formal wear instead of everyday wear.

** One of the episodes of the quasi-sequel ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' has a flashback segment where everyone is drawn in their classic outfits. While truer to the comics, Starfire's costume is still more modest than the [[CleavageWindow Cleavage Doorway]] from the source material.

In another episode inspired by ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'', the characters all wear their early 80s uniforms again. Starfire's outfit is modified into a leotard by filling out the middle portion.

* In ''Film/BlackPanther'', the outfits of the Dora Milaje show far less skin than they do in the comics. Nakia and Okoyoe are also [[AgeLift aged up]] to adults around T'Challa's age, whereas in the comics, they were both teenagers.

** The exceptions are Mystique, who is actually less modest as they made her technically nude (naughty bits covered by her mutation) under the concept that she couldn't shapeshift her clothes, while her comic/cartoon counterparts typically wear something skimpy (interestingly, in the comics, her clothes even in her true form are also just made by her shapeshifting), and ComicBook/EmmaFrost in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' (in which her classic look is almost restored; she wears what looks like lingerie in most of her scenes).

** Averted with ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', where Psylocke wears a variant of her classic Jim Lee-designed thong from the 90s, while the X-Men themselves receive costumes with numerous nods to Lee's designs in the final scene. It would have been the case with her too, Bryan Singer planning on giving her a more modest black outfit. Her actress Creator/OliviaMunn, a huge fan of the character, insisted on having the famous LeotardOfPower.
