Characters in skimpy or skin-tight clothing, or none at all, to attract or "reward" viewers. This is traditionally associated with female characters and most common there, but fanservice of male characters [[GenderInvertedTrope isn't unheard of]].

While the specific term "fanservice" arose from the {{anime}} community, the concept is far, far older. When nudity or sexual content is an expected part of a work, it's not [=fanservice=]. For example, nudity in a pornographic movie would not qualify, whereas Creator/SharonStone's infamous "beaver shot" in Creator/PaulVerhoeven's ''Film/BasicInstinct'' would. Though, most fanservice is seldom that explicit or graphic -- that is the territory of pornography. Instead it is primarily hints at sex to tease and titillate the audience.

SexIsInteresting is what happens when a writer tries to rationalize this in terms of narrative craft. Attempts to increase the overall amount of sexual content in a series fall under HotterAndSexier.

Some shows may have [[MsFanservice designated fanservice characters]]: characters who, even if they are main characters and have a role beyond fanservice, are likely to end up in a fanservicy situation. Some shows have characters for [[MsFanservice both male]] and [[MrFanservice female fanservice.]]

->''"It probably goes without saying, but just in case, I should point out that these are not plot-forwarding butts. Creator/VinDiesel never says, "Hey, Ludacris, Other Guy, get outta that car and come over here; we need to drive fast cars or those butts are going to '''explode'''!" [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]] never pulls over to the side of the road saying, "Damn, they're getting away with all of the car money. I'd be able to catch them, but I'm out of gas, and my car runs on butts." They serve no story function. Just butts for butts' sake."''

While some fanservice can increase the appeal of a show, too much fanservice can become very distracting and in some cases, [[FetishRetardant put viewers off completely]], especially if the fanservice is directed towards the opposite sex. However, [[SexSells fanservice can lure in viewers easily]]. At the other end of the spectrum, CrossingTheLineTwice hard it may be, can also occur at some point thus using the fanservice for the advancement of the plot itself. ''{{Franchise/Negima}}'' is a mild example of this, while something like ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' goes further and ''Seikon No Qwaser'' may be '''the''' definite example of the phenomenon.

[[DistaffCounterpart Fanservice of female characters]] is often called "cheesecake"; [[SpearCounterpart fanservice of male characters]] is often called "beefcake". HoYay fanservice directed at the LGBTFanbase or YaoiFangirl also exists in quite a lot of media (within the VisualKei subgenre of music, for example, "fanservice" and HoYay are almost synonymous due to bands being almost AlwaysMale, and an above usual population of bisexuals early on followed up by the recognition of the YaoiFangirl as one of the primary audiences)
