* PlayedForLaughs in ''Manga/TheDevilIsAPartTimer''--when [[spoiler:Suzuno]] attacks Maou, she's horrified that he begins to undress, and then neatly folds his clothes before actually fighting. [[SeriousBusiness Like he would risk ruining his [=MgRonald's=] uniform]]. He's still wearing a tank top with his boxers, but when her first attack [[ClothingDamage blows it off]], she [[HypocriticalHumor screams at him to stop stripping]].

** In ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'', Alex does this before every fight in the style of Hulk Hogan.

** Doggie Kruger of Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger twists this trope. When he transforms, his coat vanishes thus making him shirtless, before his Dekamaster suit gives him his ranger uniform. His [[Series/PowerRangersSPD SPD]] counterpart Anubis Cruger has him toss out his coat as the ranger suit forms beneath. The former applies this trope more because we actually see a moment where he is shirtless unlike the latter.

* In ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', we've had [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Leo]] and [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Cole]] [[ShirtlessScene showing off their]] [[StupidSexyFlanders well-sculpted physique]] for climatic fights, ripping their shirts off for extra appeal. Interestingly, both are Red Rangers with a lion motif -- and Leo morphed just a few seconds after tearing off his shirt.
** When the opening gets revamped, the "Danny Slavin as Leo" bit goes from him fighting [[{{Mooks}} Stingwingers]] in the premiere to the famous dramatic shirt rip, so you got to see it ''every week!'' (Interestingly, the opening was revamped with the clip ''before'' the episode it came from aired.)

* After Brazo De Oro Jr became La Máscara, his tecnico gimmick became wearing several articles of clothing and stripping more and more them off the longer his matches went.



* Pretty much a staple for most present day WWE Superstars since merchandise sales are a big part of the business, many now enter the ring wearing their T-Shirt and other merchandise, which they remove for the match. Wrestling/JohnCena is probably the most obvious. Others have standard entrance gear like jackets, robes, etc. that they will remove.
