* In the PC game ''VideoGame/PrincessMaker 2'', you can take your daughter Olive on a vacation as a way to build your relationship and decrease stress. How old she is and what season it is -- as well as where you're vacationing -- determines which of the photos you'll be shown. Most of said photos are innocent by the game's standards, but the translators decided to slap MS Paint clothes on Olive [[http://www.kkpmc.net/pm2/12s-sum.gif sunbathing]] and [[http://www.kkpmc.net/pm2/16s-sum.gif swimming]] naked. To be fair, she's supposed to be 12 or 13 in the sunbathing photo. In fact, the ''four'' beach summer vacation photos had this. The [[http://www.kkpmc.net/pm2/10s-sum_a.gif "sitting on a pool"]] and [[http://www.kkpmc.net/pm2/14s-sum.gif "resting in a quiet beach corner"]] ones had Olive actually wearing more see-through shirts/dresses, so these were slightly altered to not look so transparent.

* ''VideoGame/UtawarerumonoItsuwariNoKamen'': In the scene where Munechika spanks Anju, in the original Japanese version, the former pulls down the latter's pants completely. In the English version, however, not only is Anju's butt still covered up, but Munechika has her raised right hand erased.

When a naked character is given a computer-created bikini or underwear, often at the censor's request, as actually cutting the scene would leave a major plothole (or piss off purist fans who hate it when scenes get cut for content) and cropping the nudity with pan and zoom effects would make the scene look awkward as hell. This is also used to make risque clothing more modest (i.e., a female character who originally wears a thong now has on a mild version of a ThongOfShielding, booty shorts, or granny panties on a "safe for air" version of a movie or cable show that was brought to free-to-air TV). A close relative of CensorSteam (and ConspicuousCG, as most of these examples -- especially for the live-action movies -- look so obvious, even to the most naive viewer). Sometimes this does occur with BarbieDollAnatomy (or NonHumansLackAttributes) involved, though lack of certain... um, elements should technically make it less egregiously nude it doesn't lessen the overall perception that there's a lot of skin on show in places clothing should be. Other times, though, it can have the opposite effect entirely and merely look kinky without said attributes, so it's easier just to cover it up.

This of course stems from consideration of intended audiences, standards and practices departments and mainly pressure from MoralGuardians who can easily sink something if they mean to. This isn't to mean this practice is bad, just somewhat irritating to the purist.

* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' became the TropeNamer when it was aired on Creator/CartoonNetwork's ''Creator/{{Toonami}}'', pioneering the technique to avoid cutting the many plot-critical scenes set in hot springs or baths. The best part is seeing the bathing suits painted on characters wearing tightly wrapped towels around them. These days, the digital bikini isn't used as much to cover nudity in anime series. They mostly use CensorSteam, [[BarbieDollAnatomy digitally remove offending body parts]], or cut/shorten scenes of nudity. The last anime series to use digital clothes to cover nudity was ''Anime/BlueGender'', where Marlene was seen with a digitally-rendered towel around her naked body in a locker room scene.

* Played straight and then subverted with the remake of ''VideoGame/LaMulana''. When it was being designed for the US WiiWare a strip of cloth was added to the topless statues in the Tower of the Goddess. These were later removed in future updates of the PC version.

* ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' had similar edits in the Disney XD dub, however for even milder scenes (fairly modest two-piece bikinis were repainted into one-piece bikinis on one occasion and a dress on another, and in another instance a comic shot of a boy's rear end got digital underwear).
