* It's usually the raison d'etre of most female wrestlers to avoid this trope, especially since, during the late 90s and TurnOfTheMillennium, a large portion of women hired by Wrestling/{{WWE}} were models with no wrestling background. Wrestling/TrishStratus turned down offers to pose for Playboy, knowing that would be the only thing she'd be remembered for. {{Wrestling/Lita}} likewise turned down the magazine as a combination of this and GirlsNeedRoleModels (she was known as an icon for young girls of the time). {{Wrestling/Cameron}} likewise decided against getting breast implants for this reason.

* Wrestling/KellyKelly could almost be a TropeCodifier. She initially debuted as an exhibitionist and performed stripteases for the fans (or at least as much as cable televsion could get away with. (Like Ashley Massaro, she didn't even get the proper training before her WWE debut, which Keibler, Wilson and even Sullivan did, albeit briefly.) She later started taking wrestling more seriously and got a push despite being average in the ring (at best) and unable to properly run the ropes. Smarks have torn her apart over it.

* Despite Wrestling/CandiceMichelle being the only female to be named "Most Improved Wrestler of the Year" by Pro Wrestling Illustrated, most fans tend to overlook her in-ring work and focus solely on her more fanservice-y moments. The fact that she's was a softcore porn actress, Playboy model and the former Go Daddy girl doesn't help.
* While Wrestling/MickieJames is known for far more than fanservice and her feud with Trish Stratus was enjoyed and respected by fans, it was filled to the brim with LesYay moments. Expect fans to always mention either the crotch lick[[note]]After countering Trish's finishing move by grabbing her crotch, she formed a V with her hand and licked her fingers in a risque fashion. This has been edited out of both the DVD and the Network[[/note]] from WrestleMania 22 or the famous kiss under the mistletoe.

* Despite Wrestling/CandiceMichelle being the only female to be named "Most Improved Wrestler of the Year" by Pro Wrestling Illustrated, her wrestling career ended shortly after several injuries derailed her momentum, so most fans tend to overlook her in-ring work and focus solely on her more fanservice-y moments. The fact that she's was a softcore porn actress, Playboy model and the former Go Daddy girl doesn't help.

Crosses over into TruthInTelevision, due to the fact that there are many, many films, TV series and literary works that are known primarily for sex scenes or other suggestiveness and not for their plot, acting, etc. And this often extends to the actors and writers, not all of whom are pleased to be associated forever with a particular scene (see NeverLiveItDown).

* Armageddon 1999 is remembered for two things: the first is Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon turning heel to become a power couple with Triple H. The second is Miss Kitty dropping her top after winning the Women's Championship - the first time there had ever been full frontal nudity on the company's national TV.

* The only things most people seem to remember about ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet'' are the scene where Amy dances for Ledo in a skimpy outfit and the BeachEpisode, despite the fact that the rest of the series has about as much fanservice as a Disney movie.

* ''Manga/TheElectricTaleOfPikachu'' is notorious for this with most of the girls having a lot bigger bust size and [[MaleGaze lots of shots of the butt on characters]] and [[{{Stripperiffic}} girls that wear very little clothing]]. The one that suffers the worst is Misty with a normal outfit that shows lots of skin and a swimsuit that shows [[{{Underboobs}} some of the breasts from the bottom]] as well as [[{{Sideboob}} the side of the breasts]].



* ''LightNovel/HorizonInTheMiddleOfNowhere'' is a sprawling high fantasy world with the benefit of a veteran writer with several series under his belt, each sharing common themes and concepts throughout their shared universe. Every trope is examined, played with, and ultimately justified. The HolyShitQuotient is high, the sound track is orgasmic, and the world building is matched only by the sheer amount of characterization. On the other hand, [[MemeticMutation balloon tits]].



* Mention ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' and most people will inevitably think of Fanservice or ClothingDamage. Yes, the manga has a lot of fanservice, but it also has a ton of CharacterDevelopment, an epic plot, and a ton of [[CoolVersusAwesome awesome fights]]. Still doesn't keep the fanservice from overshadowing just about everything else in the popular perception of the series.
** As with the previous example, it doesn't help that the early volumes were more {{fanservice}}-heavy than later ones. To make matters worse, a lot of people's only exposure is the first anime, which is severely lacking in a lot of the more combat oriented storylines. Ironically, the second anime lacks any fanservice what-so-ever.

* ''LightNovel/ThePetGirlOfSakurasou'' is almost entirely character drama, TearJerker moments, and realistic struggles with life and romance. But most non-fans are only aware of the [[SexSells heavily advertised couple of scenes]] where a [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} spaced-out girl]] [[InnocentFanserviceGirl gets naked]]. And the title translates to "The Pet Girl Of Sakura Hall," making the whole thing look like a HaremSeries.

* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'' is infamous for its gratuitous {{Fanservice}} (particularly in the anime adaptation) and a perverted hero who constantly talks about breasts. However, said hero is an AffectionateParody of {{Shonen}}-style protagonists who is [[ChivalrousPervert genuinely heroic and respectful towards women]], and the characters and setting are surprisingly well-developed.

* When the female lead of ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf'' first appears, she is stark naked. She's not human, but that can lead people to the wrong conclusions easily enough, and seeing her illustrations (or images from the anime or manga adaptations) without context can [[OffscreenInertia lead one to assume that she goes around naked frequently]], when in fact she prefers to wear clothes in her human form because she gets cold without her fur. Ironically, despite her reputation, she dresses much more conservatively than most anime women (usually a full-length dress and at least one layer with long sleeves).

* ''Career Opportunities'' is a thoroughly forgettable 1991 teen comedy about two people getting trapped inside a Target for the night and having to deal with robbers. Forgettable, that is, except for Creator/JenniferConnelly demonstrating BuxomIsBetter and {{Gainaxing}} by wearing a white cotton tank top for the whole movie, including a scene where she bounces on a coin-operated children's pony ride (in one of the most gif-able moments in film history)

* ''Film/BlueIsTheWarmestColor'' will be remembered primarily for its extensive explicit lesbian sex scenes more than for its storyline, much to the chagrin of fans of the original graphic novel. Much as with ''Bound'' (see below), the impression given by the media is that it's a 3-hour lesbian porn film.



* ''Film/TheBrownBunny'' probably had a plot ([[LeaveTheCameraRunning or not]]), but is mainly remembered as the film where Creator/ChloeSevigny performs un-simulated fellatio on the writer/director/star. [[OvershadowedByControversy And then the war of words with the director and Roger Ebert.]]

[[OvershadowedByControversy And then the war of words with the director and Roger Ebert.]]]] A decade after its release, Sevigny was still being asked questions about the scene, despite the fact she's gone on to greater notoriety in other works.



** To be fair however, this movie ''was'' intended to be a spoof of "Best Known for the Fanservice" sex comedies.



* Hey ''Film/RequiemForADream''! Isn't that the somber, thought-provoking film that explores the horrors of drug addiction? Nope, its just one scene of Creator/JenniferConnelly doing "ass to ass" with another woman.

Nope, its just one scene of Creator/JenniferConnelly doing "ass to ass" with another woman. An uber-example of this trope as that scene has been endlessly recycled on porn sites with all context stripped away, turning the horror of the original into straight titillation.



* Ever since ''Series/GameOfThrones'' became known as "that show that's like ''TheLordOfTheRings'' but with Porn and Politics" (which [[CommonKnowledge it isn't]]), ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has become known as an "Adult" "[[DarkerAndEdgier Grim Dark]]" or "X-rated" fantasy series. It does contain sex scenes, but most of them are PG-13 at worst, and many of them are implied rather than shown. However, judging how some people talk about them, you'd think it's all skin, all humping, all the time.
