"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.

[[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 Yaoi Fangirl as one of the primary audiences.

Characters in skimpy or skin-tight clothing, or sexualized situations, to attract or "reward" 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 primarily hints at sex to tease and titillate the audience. This is traditionally associated with female characters, but fanservice of male characters [[GenderInvertedTrope is increasingly common as well]].
