* Tigra pulled this on Moonstone (when she was "Ms Marvel" in the ComicBook/DarkAvengers) by slashing the front of her costume, therefore leaving her, ahem, open for a crowd of paparazzi photographers.

*In ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "The Boys Are Back In Town", near the end Blossom manages to defeat her {{Spear Counterpart}}, Brick, by pulling his pants down. This results in him [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything literally shrinking in size.]] Before that, she deduced that the Puffs' counterparts' new weakness was that [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar "whenever their masculinity is threatened, they shrink in size."]] Masculinity threatened, indeed.

** ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness'' quartet. Alanna is a SweetPollyOliver and her companion has no idea that she's a girl. She beats the crap out of the Ysandir anyway (though covering up with Jon's tunic first). It happens again in her duel with Duke Roger: he gets in a slash that cuts open her tunic and incidentally slices through the thing she was wearing to bind her chest. He had no idea that would happen. After everyone is suitably shocked, Alanna gets back to work.

* Katharine Hepburn managed to exploit this trope due to her ''im''modesty. Her favourite outfit off-camera was dungarees and whatever top seemed appropriate, but she was "encouraged" by the studio to wear the elegant costumes from her first film, ''A Bill of Divorcement'' off the set, to look good in public. She refused. They said they'd hide her dungarees. She told Dick Cavett that her response was "Oh, I ''really'' wouldn't do that." But they did. Cavett, of course, asked what she did. "I walked across the lot to the car waiting for me by the gate in my underpants." Her dungarees were returned the next day.

* In the ''Manga/ViolinistOfHameln'' manga, Vocal rips off [[{{Stripperific}} Ocarina]]'s bra when she is about to unload her most powerful attack on him, making her stop in the mid-move to cover herself. Considering that Vocal was lightyears beyond Ocarina's power level anyway, this was done purely for lulz.
* ''Manga/UchiNoMusumeNiTeODasuNa'': In chapter 9, Artemis challenges her older sister Athena to a duel. They were evenly matched, until Athena suddenly [[BrotherSisterIncest by makes out with her]] to gain the upperhand. Then Athena capitalizes on Artemis' shame and confusion, going so far as to 69 with her [[TheImmodestOrgasm 'til she climaxed.]] Artemis concedes the match, but [[WhatTheHellHero she calls her sister out]] for using such a shameful tactic.
