* Music/KateBush in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xckBwPdo1c “Babooshka.”]] The cover of Bush's 1983 compilation EP ''Kate Bush'' also features her in her "Babooshka" bikini.

** Made even more laughable with Judith, who wears a full suit of androgynous armour when the party first meets her, but then changes into this for the rest of the game (unless given a different outfit). The extra costumes in the Japanese PS3 version also features actual bikinis for Judith, Rita and Estelle to wear into battle. [[MundaneMadeAwesome Battle swimwear]] is also available for Yuri, Raven and Karol.

* A modern ''Literature/ConanTheBarbarian'' story had Conan teaming up with a woman in a chain-mail bikini who explains that she knows that opponents are going to attack the bare areas and her fighting style is to counter those attacks.

* In ''VisualNovel/WalkureRomanze'' there are supposedly male knights, but we never see any apart from Julianus and Takahiro, both of whom wear reasonable enough armor. For the girls it's apparently standard to have armor that covers the upper torso but then is form fitting to the breasts of the knight in question, which is a terrible idea for deflecting blows. The only exceptions are Akane, who is very modest and reserved and Lisa, who doesn't really have breasts to begin with. Supporting character Bertille takes it one step further with armor that is almost skin colored and then completely ignores leg armor or pants altogether because it's not a legal strike area for jousting anyway. It does technically reduce her weight and make her faster than properly armored knights, but the protagonist Takahiro has no idea where to look when talking to her. Besides, the gains are minimal.

* Played with in Planescape, where one of the heroines wears a Stripperific outfit...and it's revealed to be because her half-demon heritage makes her OVERHEAT. There's actually a scene where the Nameless One points out that if she's going for this, she should shift it a bit...and she didn't realize what she did!

There's actually a scene where the Nameless One points out that if she's going for this, she should shift it a bit...and she didn't realize what she did!

* KingsOfWar mostly avoids this trope with female soldiers, but the Forces of the Abyss feature the Succubi, a skirmisher unit of HornyDevils wearing loin cloths and some strategically placed spiky bits. RealityEnsues when they're attacked, as their defense rating is, ahem, abysmal.

* Rooster Teeth (of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' fame) produced [[http://thesocietypages.org/socimages/2011/02/09/testing-gendered-battle-gear/ this]] parody of the trend, having two women in ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries SoulCalibur]]'' cosplay gear duke it out and see how well their costumes held up.

* ''Manga/UQHolder'' has a non-combative version. When entering in a hoverbike race, everyone is wearing swimsuits rather than protective gear. [[LampshadeHanging Kirie points out how dangerous that is]], only for Mizore to inform her that, due to the use of magical protection in clothing, the current trend is to see [[RefugeInAudacity how skimpy people can make the outfits and get away with it]]. Plus, if the outfits fly off, it'll just boost the popularity of the race, so the sponsors are all for it.

** Averted entirely in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', with Iron Bull providing a very clear reason why it's a bad idea.

** Averted entirely in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', with Iron Bull providing a very clear reason why it's a bad idea. It's somewhat hypocritical of him, since no matter what armor he's wearing he refuses to put on a shirt.

** Eldar and Slaanesh. The former have jump suits with cast iron (well, wraithbone if you wanna get technical) bras. The latter have cast iron port holes so their breasts can hang out!

The other daemon infantry don't even wear clothes; the Daemonettes put on partial armor [[InvokedTrope just so they could hang out of it.]]
