The use of sex or sexualized situations reward or entice viewers. While the specific term "fanservice" arose from the {{anime}} community, the concept is far, far older. Most fanservice is seldom explicit or graphic -- that is the territory of pornography. Instead, it uses sexuality or hints at sex often in a [[RuleOfFunny funny]] or [[NakedPeopleAreFunny comedic]] way to tease and titillate the audience. This is traditionally associated with female characters, but fanservice of male characters [[GenderInvertedTrope isn't uncommon either]].

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 [[MrFanservice both male]] and [[MsFanservice female fanservice.]]

Although 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 as it may be, can also occur at some point, thus using the fanservice for the advancement of the plot. ''{{Franchise/Negima}}'' is a mild example of this, whereas something like ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' goes further and ''Seikon No Qwaser'' may be '''the''' definitive 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 Ho Yay 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.

"Fanservice" is also sometimes used in a more general way, referring simply to any crowd-pleaser thrown in just because. When this is something non-sexual, like needlessly flashy attacks in a HumongousMecha show, long guitar/bass/drum solos in a concert, or [[ContinuityCavalcade throwing in lots of obscure continuity references]] in a long-running work, it's PanderingToTheBase. [[RuleOfSexy Sexy fanservice is considered the default form, because it is the one]] [[EverybodyRemembersTheStripper everybody seems to remember]], and the easiest to add to any kind of show.
