* In the Japanese version of ''Videogame/EarthBound'' (entitled ''MOTHER 2''), this trope is in full effect when the main protagonist [[TheAllAmericanBoy Ness]] is completely naked (other than his [[IconicItem trademark red baseball cap]]) while exploring his MentalWorld of [[{{Wackyland}} Magicant]]. The English version of the game averts this entirely, and puts Ness in the pajamas he wears at the beginning of the game instead.

* While there are various trolls in ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollhunters}}'' that wear clothes and do in fact have "gronknuks" (Rule #3 being to hit them for a tactical advantage), some trolls like the Wumpa Tribe, AAARRRGGHH!!! and his entire breed of trolls go without clothes with no primary gender characteristics visible.

Despite the potential weirdness of not seeing something that's supposed to be there, having those specific bits [[TropesAreTools can be a good thing]] when seeing uncensored private parts would be even more distracting. Viewers tend to quickly accept this artistic convention as long as you keep their attention on what's happening in the scene.

Even with all of this, not having those specific bits in most circumstances [[TropesAreTools can be a good thing]] depending on intent and audience, and in most situations the lack of primary attributes isn't (or shouldn't be) a detraction unless you're paying too much attention to the entirely wrong thing.

A similar effect can be achieved in live production ({{Film}}/LiveActionTV) by the actors wearing flesh-coloured patches or skintight fabric on private areas. The absence of private parts is more jarring and easy to spot in live action when you're given a chance to notice it, so in this form it's typically used as backup to help camouflage areas that will be mainly obscured by other means, rather than as a censorship technique that stands on its own.

In comics, TV shows, and movies aimed at general audiences, characters in a state of undress will usually lack ... ''certain'' anatomical features.

If a female is shown naked from the front, {{nipple|AndDimed}}s may or may not be drawn. Variations include complete absence, nipples absent but areola shown, nipples drawn but areola lacking, and both nipples and areola being drawn. The crotch will almost always be completely featureless, with not even a dark patch to represent pubic hair. This is sometimes oddly coupled with drawing [[FormFittingWardrobe "clothing" so thin and skin-hugging]] that it displays the naughty bits in prominent relief, making characters more naked when they're clothed than when they're unclothed.

Barechested male characters will often be drawn without nipples, [[MaleFrontalNudity and there will never be visible genitalia or crotch hair]]. They can also have the curious affliction of having the organ in question outlined, but transparent, or looking like the artist got carried away with the eraser.

Also [[BellyButtonless Belly Buttons]] are optional.

In live production ({{Film}}/LiveActionTV), the same effect can be achieved by the actor wearing a flesh-coloured body suit, though usually the glimpses viewers get are too short to tell the difference.

Even with all of this, not having those specific bits in most circumstances [[TropesAreTools can be a good thing]] depending on intent and audience, and in the majority of situations the lack of primary attributes isn't (or shouldn't be) a detraction unless you're paying too much attention to entirely the wrong thing.

In comics, TV shows, and movies aimed at general audiences, Sometimes a creator wants to show characters naked in a state work that's intended for general audiences. They can't just let the audience see the characters' private parts, but using censorship tools like SceneryCensor or CensorSteam to hide those areas can feel contrived or bothersome from an artistic standpoint. If it's a non-live-action medium like comics or animation where you build up a character model from scratch instead of undress will usually lack ... ''certain'' anatomical features.

filming or photographing a real person, one really simple solution is to just leave out the part where you draw, paint, or sculpt the genitals and leave a smooth area instead, so that even if you show the character totally naked there'll be nothing objectionable to see.

In live production ({{Film}}/LiveActionTV), The TropeNamer is the same famous ''Franchise/{{Barbie}}'' doll line. Almost any doll or action figure with clothes that you can remove will be featureless when undressed. This technique is also used often in {{Anime}} and {{Manga}}, particularly for subjects like the classic MagicalGirl TransformationSequence.
