* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Zigzagged. Males are drawn without nipples in the manga and 1997 anime, while they ''do'' have them in the movies. Miura never draws penises or vaginas in the original manga as explicitly as you would see in uncensored [[{{Hentai}} ''hentai'']] because of Japanese censorship laws, but BarbieDollAnatomy is only one of multiple techniques he uses. Puck is always naked but has no visible genitals. His female counterpart Ivalera...well, we don't know because she wears a dress. Various male characters including Guts and Griffith are drawn like Ken dolls at times, with shadows covering a noticeable lack of private parts. Women are sometimes drawn like Barbie dolls from a distance, whereas closer up he usually draws them with nipples but avoids detailing the pubic area. On the other hand, sometimes he draws male or female organs in silhouette instead of omitting them altogether, or suggests pubic hair with some subtle texturing. At one point in volume 18 he was even bold enough to draw Joachim explicitly penetrating Nina, albeit with very few lines and no shading. It's not entirely consistent by any means. There are parts featuring characters like Ken dolls next to relatively explicit MaleFrontalNudity in the same panel! The anime and the theatrical cut of the movies generally censor genitals more. The ''WebVideo/BerserkAbridged'' series parodies this with Gut's complaints about his lack of genitals in the anime, for which he [[RageAgainstTheAuthor beats up the character designer]].

** One scene contains a frontal shot of a naked Stewie Griffin, with no male genitalia in sight. Promptly lampshaded when he looks down and doesn't see said genitals, causing him to think he's a woman. (That was because of [[{{Seinfeld}} Shrinkage]].)

* The main character of ''GashBell'' would often strip completely nude, much to Kiyomaro's annoyance. His genitals are in full display. In the English dub, boxers appear.

* In ''TheMightyBoosh'', the episode "Party" reveals that Naboo has no genitals. Any {{Fan Fic}}s dealing with the aftermath of this episode mention it at least once.

** Whilst we�re on the subject of Tim Roth's audio commentary, the absence of visible external genitalia only gets a passing mention when compared to Roth's complaints towards Abomination's anatomy and the lack thereof, with regard to the [[spoiler:ears]]. Whether this is a true subversion or Roth had his tongue firmly in his cheek -- answers on a postcard, please...

* Sometimes this trope appears in anime, to the point where it was originally named "Anime Anatomy." Because of censorship laws, pubic hair was also once not allowed to be shown; the laws have since changed, but showing the actual delicate bits is still avoided. Of course, artists usually opt for the smallest black or white bar that will pass muster, and in the case of white bars this can result in the area down there looking like it's glowing. Though sometimes common to all-ages works, it is known to sometimes show up in illustrated porn as well. [[SelectiveSquick Porn written for men tends to avoid showing the penis]], so quite a few hentai comics will show the woman's vagina being stretched by an invisible penis..

* Averted in chapter 68 and zig-zagged in chapter 78 of ''BlueExorcist''. In chapter 68, the lower half of one of Shura's nipples is visible behind her towel as she prepares to go into a hot spring. In chapter 78, no nipple is visible when Shura gives Shiro a MarshmallowHell, but a few pages later you can see a slight outline of a nipple in one panel that shows Shura topless from the side.
