* It was not uncommon for 19th-century duelists to fight shirtless (or even, in one famous case, completely nude) because it decreased the chance of dying afterward from an infected wound. When women began fighting topless epee duels for this reason, the male public considered it FetishFuel, which is why those women tried to make sure that no man would be in the vicinity to spy on them.

* 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/JohnCenais probably the most obvious. Others have standard entrance gear like jackets, robes, etc. that they will remove.

Battle Strip is when a character, especially one who is modest, either has a {{Stripperific}} battle uniform (for the girls), or doesn't [[ShirtlessScene wear a shirt in a fight]] (for the guys). The main reason is because clothing could restrict movement/attacks, or it's also a sign of {{Badass}}. It also gives the opponent fewer things to grab and pin the fighter down with. However, sometimes it's just plain FanService.

* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}}'' fights Grendel completely naked. While this is intended to make him look {{Badass}}, the gratuitous use of SceneryCensor makes it come off as a bit silly.

* The princesses in ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} Shrek the Third]]'' actually tear off parts of their dresses before taking down Prince Charming's henchmen. In their case, it's more justified than usual, in that their dresses are slightly restrictive, and they need the freedom of movement in a fight.

* In ''Film/TheShallows'' Nancy uses the remaining sleeve of her wetsuit to hang from the bouy she's stuck in order to retrieve some flare ammo that are floating in the sea, but when the shark attacks the buoy, since her wetsuit is still attached to the buoy, Nancy is forced to remove her wetsuit in order to survive and combat the shark. Also qualifies as a GivingThemTheStrip.

* In the ''Film/TheShallows'' while Nancy had partly unzipped her wetsuit by the end of the movie, when the shark begins to attack her, she unzips the rest of her wetsuit and ditches it before she begins to combat the shark.
