* Happens indirectly during ''Film/DieHard: Arcade''. As the stages progress, both main characters' clothes become more ragged. (With a {{Fanservice}} double standard between the male and female ones, natch.)
** Its sequel Dynamite Cop strips and eventually tatters the hero's clothes as they take more and more damage.

* During the ''Comicbook/XWingSeries'' [[BadassPrincess Plourr]] and her LoveInterest Rial get ambushed by commandos and have to fight them off unarmed. They make it out unscathed, but Rial's shirt is torn and he's showing a nipple.

** And yet another Creator/{{Capcom}} Arcade game, ''Black Tiger'', the BarbarianHero's armor breaks off and leaves him in his LoinCloth after enough hits. Apparently Capcom just likes this.

* A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3xKbEIn4tY Wilkinson ad]] in the wake of the release of ''Film/AssassinsCreed2016'' has a man and a woman fighting with swords. At one point, the man cuts the woman's top and she ends up with just her bra. The man's shirt has somehow disappeared between the start of the fight and this particular moment meanwhile.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' manga ''Twi to Shimmer no Ero Manga'' has Sunset Shimmer tearing apart Twilight's shirt before she kisses her.



* Ongoing problem for Tennyo in the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse''. She's nearly indestructible, heals faster than ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}, and will take on anything. But she's wearing normal clothing. It never survives intact. Eventually this gets so serious that one of her teammates buys her - at considerable expense - a ChainmailBikini made of Adamantium to wear under her clothes, as a last-resort protection for her modesty.

* In an OffscreenMomentOfAwesome, Donnie [=DuPre=] from WebVideo/DemoReel somehow lost his t-shirt and only had the energy to button his over-shirt halfway up. We thank you for your laziness, sir.

* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' tends to be fairly realistic about this, often having clothing damage that doesn't come off like fanservice (for example, the boys at the end of episode 2). However, muscular ComicBook/{{Superboy}} has holes blasted in his shirt so often in season one that it might be meant as a RunningGag. He also loses [[MyFavoriteShirt his favorite boots]] to lava in "Denial."

* In many massed melee battles in history, the amount of movement and the proximity of a writhing, stabbing, pulling, punching, slashing, and hooking masses of men can actually cause certain fighters in said battles to come out completely naked and covered in cuts. This is one of the reasons why armor of any kind, despite the numerous amounts of armor-piercing weapons, exists.
** Ironically enough, this is one of the reasons a number of ancient warriors [[FullFrontalAssault fought naked]] or nearly so. The damaged clothing would be carried into the body and cause infections, leading to a long and rather gruesome death.

The PantyFighter genre exists ''for'' this trope. WardrobeWound is a common follow-up, if the character overreacts to the clothing damage. See LosingAShoeInTheStruggle for when this is not played for {{Fanservice}}.
