* The Daughters of Aku from the 2017 revival of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' at first appeared to be wearing black form-fitting bodysuits, but in the sixth episode it is revealed that their bodies have actually been covered with ash from being exposed to hot coals when they were children, meaning that the seven women were stark naked the entire time they tried to kill Jack.

* On October 25, 1944, a small task force of American destroyers, destroyer escorts, and escort carriers officially designated "Taffy-3" encountered a fleet of Japanese battleships and cruisers near the Leyte invasion beachhead in the Philippines. Commander Ernest E. Evans of the destroyer USS ''Johnston'' (DD-557) took his small ship straight at the enemy, guns blazing, without waiting for orders. A Japanese shell soon wrecked ''Johnston'''s bridge, blowing off all of Evans's clothes, including skivvies. Unfazed by the blast or the shrapnel wounds it gave him, and clad in nothing but his dog tags and BadassMoustache, Evans continued to drive and fight his ship ''bare-ass naked'' throughout the engagement, and stayed topside, in the open, in full view of everyone due to the bridge being knocked out. ''Johnston'' inflicted so much damage on the enemy that when she finally sank, a Japanese destroyer was ordered to shell her at point-blank range just to make sure. Captain Evans was last seen accounting for each of his surviving crew as they abandoned ship, and was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.

* ''Literature/TheTerror''. Lieutenant Irving encounters mutinous crew member Hickey dancing naked and assumes he's gone insane. When he goes to tell Hickey to GetAHoldOfYourselfMan, Hickey cuts his throat with a hidden knife. Being naked meant he didn't get blood on his body, and the dancing kept him from freezing in the cold.

This is because she has the power of {{Invisibility}} which only affects her body, not her clothing, so she has to be an InvisibleStreaker for her powers to be useful.

* In ''Manga/ApocalypseZero'', Kakugo can't remain clothed, and will even strip naked to battle most of the enemies of the series.
* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan,'' Titans lack any sort of clothes. Admittedly, they have BarbieDollAnatomy, but the nudity helps emphasize [[UncannyValley how creepily inhuman they are]].
* In ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', Greece references this a lot to Japan, and one can assume he has done it.
* Gyoubu from ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}'' not only strangles people to death in the nude, he spends most of his screen time like that. His ninja ability allows him to fuse with his surroundings as long as he is naked.
* Dark Schneider, the lead character of ''Manga/{{Bastard}}'', does this frequently.
* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': The first time we meet Zodd, he's standing butt-naked and knee-deep in the corpses of Hawk members.
* The title character of ''Anime/BirdyTheMighty'' does this in the original manga when she goes out to Tsutomu's house to confront an alien, ignoring Tsutomu's request to "PleasePutSomeClothesOn''. In the OVA's version, however, she [[AvertedTrope obliges with the request]].
* In ''Anime/BladeAndSoul,'' Alka attacks a peeping tom during her bath in episode 1.
* In the ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' Bount filler arc, Yoruichi briefly fights off a Bount like this when she changes from her cat form into her human form. She never does this in canon, but given her legendary lack of shame, she probably would.
* Jo in ''Anime/BurstAngel''. Though given her features, [[BarbieDollAnatomy or lack thereof]], it looks like she's wearing a nude bodysuit.
* In ''Manga/BusouRenkin'' Genji Ikusabe's kakugane ability gives him a near-instant HealingFactor as long as he's holding onto his spear. At one point during his fight with Papillion, his entire body is destroyed (along with his clothing,) leading to him regenerating and spending the rest of the fight stark naked.
* In ''LightNovel/CatPlanetCuties'', Aoi and Manami are in the bath when the burglar alarm sounds. Que both girls rushing outside with their guns without so much as grabbing a towel (although Manami ''does'' grab her helmet).



* In ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' the [[OneWingedAngel awakened beings]] fight naked, justified because their monstrous forms are too large or inhumanly-shaped for human clothes. Examples of this happening when they are "human" include...
** Riful is explicitly shown stripping before action so as not to ruin her clothes. Her lover Dauf apparently does this as well.
** Agatha appears as a naked woman connected to a giant monster by her hair. Although technically the naked woman part isn't her real body.
** The "Abyss Feeders" are monstrous yoma shaped into a human form. They appear as mindless, almost-naked women with their eyes and [[MouthStitchedShut mouths sewn shut]] and possess ridiculous [[HealingFactor regeneration]] abilities. They can usually heal damage to their bodies as fast as their opponents can inflict it and only a [[ChunkySalsaRule well-aimed blow to the head]] can kill them outright. Since their [[ClothingDamage scant clothes cannot regenerate]], when fighting they will inevitably end up completely stark naked given enough time.
** Priscilla also does this when fighting in awakened form [[note]]in which it can be excused since despite being humanoid she is just too big for the clothes she wears in human form[[/note]] and quite often in her human form too [[note]]where it can either be the result of her clothes being destroyed or else the result of her complete lack of understanding why she should wear anything[[/note]].
* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Suzaku is wandering through a forest when he sees his classmate Kallen (who's secretly a member of the Order of Black Knights) [[WaterfallShower showering in a waterfall]]. He makes the mistake of revealing his presence; she instantly grabs her uniform, [[ScreamingWarrior whips out a knife and charges.]]
* ''Manga/CryingFreeman'', as part of its [[SoBadItsGood unintentionally hilarious portrayal of the criminal underworld]]. Apparently there is an unwritten rule among professional assassins that you cannot have a showdown without stripping first.
* Invoked in ''Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}'', when local RubberMan 007 uses his powers to [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever grow many times his size]] and attack some mutated animals charging against him, 006 and 009. In the 2001 series, he's in a LoinCloth; in the original manga, he's naked.
* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' sometimes has a case where the murderer has no evidence on their clothes due to having killed naked. [[spoiler: One case's main evidence of the murderer was a picture of a mole on the collar bone... but no suspect had such a mole. Turns out the murderer killed naked and the 'mole' was actually a blood drop.]]
* Sorta used in ''Anime/DigimonTamers''. When [[spoiler: Takato, Jenrya, Ruki and later Ryo [[FusionDance merge with their digimons]] ]], their clothes pretty much disappear and they're seen naked [[spoiler: "within their Mons"]]. Most likely symbolic, however.
* ''Franchise/DragonBall'':
** This goes all the way back to the first episode of ''Manga/DragonBall'', where Goku goes fishing naked so he doesn't get his gi wet. When a giant fish attempts to eat him instead, he kicks it around clad in nothing but his wristbands.
** Later, in the first TournamentArc, Goku was fully prepared to fight an opponent naked after all of his clothes were destroyed by his [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Oozaru]] transformation. Luckily, Krillin was there to convince him to borrow his uniform before resuming the match.
** At the end of the Red Ribbon arc, Goku chases down Pilaf and his henchmen to reclaim the last Dragon Ball he needs. During the fight, Goku's pants are burnt off, but does nothing to stop him from continuing the fight.
** Alien anatomy aside, once [[BigBad Freeza]] reaches his 4th form in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' he plays this trope straight. Nobody comments on it, though it may have been because they were terrified by his sudden switch from AxeCrazy to TranquilFury.
** In ''Anime/DragonBallGT'', Goku's clothes are [[ClothingDamage blasted off]] and he remarks that he doesn't really mind fighting naked, but Pan insists that he [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn put some clothes on]]. The villain even pauses their fight [[NiceJobFixingItVillain so Goku can do so]]! [[NakedPeopleAreFunny Played for laughs]], of course.



* [[Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia Greece]] references this a lot to Japan, and one can assume he has done it.

his female fighters finishing the BigBad off completely naked. No BarbieDollAnatomy, naturally.
* [[LittleMissBadass Mamiko Kuri]] Heroic example: Gray from ''Manga/{{Narutaru}}'' likes ''Manga/FairyTail'' is pretty prone to [[InnocentFanserviceGirl go around naked]] and kills [[spoiler:her rapists]] these. Even while in the manga while Guild he can suddenly and inexplicably end up naked, and it always surprises him. It is revealed that is a result of his teacher's training, she made him and Leon train naked in the snow so Gray strips off when he's not paying attention. Later on it doubles as a LetsGetDangerous when the pair do synchronized stripping when fighting tough opponents.
* Kei, the local ActionGirl in ''Manga/GetterRobo'': ''Armaggedon'', pulls this right after [[spoiler: an OutOfClothesExperience in which she finds the equally naked Go. Who actually is her older brother. [[CloningBlues Sort]] [[MindScrew of]].]]. After this incident, she hops into her mecha in the buff and immediately attacks the enemy, curb stomping all of them.
** Cue the CrowningMomentOfFunny when she's done and opens her cockpit... and
only ''then'' she realizes she's naked. But not before she gives her friend and partner [[GentleGiant Gai]] an ''epic'' NoseBleed, much to her ParentalSubstitute [[OverprotectiveDad Benkei's]] horror.
* Subverted in ''Anime/GhostInTheShell''. Motoko Kusanagi ''looks'' like she's making her naked body invisible, but it's really a skintight thermoptic camouflage suit, seen in better detail later in the movie which makes it more distinct from her skin. She doesn't wear anything underneath it, but this isn't revealed until the climax, when [[spoiler:she tears her arms apart trying to pry off the hatch of the tank that's been hunting her. The camo suit shreds to pieces along with her body]].
* Cuuko from ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' at first seems to wear something in her Cross Fire Sequence form. However, due to the fact that she is a humanoid alien, combined with BarbieDollAnatomy, it's either that she is
wearing a short school blouse, no panties body paint or skirt there.that it is part of her skin and is going naked by that standards.



* Knives does this a few times in the ''{{Trigun}}'' manga and ''Trigun Maximum''. Made even more disturbing by the connotations of [[spoiler:{{twincest}}uous rape]] at the end of the manga.



* [[EnemyWithout The Darkness of the Book of Darkness]] in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs''. Since [[HeelFaceTurn Reinforce Eins]] wears [[EvilIsSexy black leather]], this was probably the only way to make her dark side more evil-looking.
* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'': The first time we meet Zodd, he's standing butt-naked and knee-deep in the corpses of Hawk members.
* ''Manga/CryingFreeman'', as part of its [[SoBadItsGood unintentionally hilarious portrayal of the criminal underworld]]. Apparently there is an unwritten rule among professional assassins that you cannot have a showdown without stripping first.
* Jo in ''Anime/BurstAngel''. Though given her features, [[BarbieDollAnatomy or lack thereof]], it looks like she's wearing a nude bodysuit.
* Two characters have a nude final confrontation at the end of ''Literature/{{Paprika}}''. Mercifully (or unfortunately), one has BarbieDollAnatomy.



* In ''Manga/SaintSeiya'', Seiya attacks [[spoiler: Gemini]] Saga, which only [[ClothingDamage destroys]] the [[spoiler: Pope]] robe he's wearing; Saga ends up naked, in the shadows. Yeah, he dons his armor a few seconds after, but seeing him naked in the shadows during these seconds is pretty intimidating. In the OVA Seiya himself does this, to [[spoiler:Apollo]] nonetheless.

to:

* Voluntary heroic example: ''Manga/KekkoKamen''. Fight crime while wearing boots, gloves and a mask... and nothing else.
* Happens to both Toshihiko and Kazuma near the end of ''Anime/{{Kemonozume}}'' due to ClothingDamage.
* In ''Manga/SaintSeiya'', Seiya attacks ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' happen often with Shigure:
** Shigure encountered a few assassins in the hot spring during the trip with Kenichi.
** Later, Shigure is captured by the organization Yami and she is stripped naked, a reasonable precaution since she can turn ''anything'', even a piece of cloth, into a deadly weapon. She manages to get needles into her mouth and break her restraints. Though her escape attempt fails, she kicks a lot of ass in the process.
* ''Anime/KillLaKill'':
** Sanageyama has twice attempted to continue a battle without his clothes on. [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn Gamagoori would rather he'd not]]. For added awkward, one of this times has [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/makotakesmeasurements_3333.png Mako]] taking... his measurements [[TeenyWeenie and not being impressed.]]
** Later on we also have the appropriately-named rebel army Nudist Beach. They do wear belts and straps to carry their gear, but those don't cover much.
** Ryuko, after she [[spoiler:abandons Senketsu upon the revelation that she's a life-fiber/human [[HalfHumanHybrid hybrid]]]] wipes out a small army of {{Mook}}s and then storms Honnouji Academy wearing nothing [[ModestyBedsheet but a bedsheet worn as a cape.]] Soon after, Satsuki
[[spoiler: Gemini]] Saga, which only [[ClothingDamage destroys]] breaks free of the [[spoiler: Pope]] robe he's wearing; Saga ends up naked, in cell where she was being imprisoned by Ragyo]] and wipes out some of the shadows. Yeah, same mooks while wearing nothing but a pair of shackles (and fighting with a single metal toenail blade.)
* Kaipan from ''Manga/{{Kochikame}}'' is a PlayedForLaughs version --
he dons always [[BattleStrip removes his armor a few seconds after, but seeing him naked Speedo]] before fighting, and often insists on getting others in on the shadows during these seconds is pretty intimidating. nudity as well.
*
In the OVA Seiya himself does this, ''LightNovel/LordMarksmanAndVanadis'', Elen comments that War Maidens like herself are trained to [[spoiler:Apollo]] nonetheless.be ready to fight at all times, even when naked. We get an example when Ludmilla attacks Tigre after he walks in on her bath.



* [[EnemyWithout The Darkness of the Book of Darkness]] in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs''. Since [[HeelFaceTurn Reinforce Eins]] wears [[EvilIsSexy black leather]], this was probably the only way to make her dark side more evil-looking.



* Toru Hagakure of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has a superhero costume consisting of only a pair of gloves and boots, which she takes off when things get serious. This is because she has the power of {{Invisibility}} which only affects her body, not her clothing, so she has to be an InvisibleStreaker for her powers to be useful.
* [[AxCrazy Suigetsu]] from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is introduced this way since his main ability is to [[ElementalShapeShifter turn into water]] and a full body transformation doesn't always include his clothing when he changes back.
* [[LittleMissBadass Mamiko Kuri]] from ''Manga/{{Narutaru}}'' likes to [[InnocentFanserviceGirl go around naked]] and kills [[spoiler:her rapists]] in the manga while only wearing a short school blouse, no panties or skirt there.
* Ubume from ''Anime/NinjaScrollTheSeries'' prefers to fight nude, excepting for her gauntlet (which stores a whip) and the metal plates she seems to have grafted on her belly and groin.
* ''Manga/OnePunchMan'':
** This is the schtick of [[BadassGay Puri-Puri Prisoner]]. When he's not chasing down handsome young men, he's frequently erupting pecs-first out of his sweater vest to deliver a beatdown to the MonsterOfTheWeek.
** Saitama unintentionally does one when he takes out Mosquito Girl--his civilian clothes got scorched off by Genos' attack, but Saitama himself is much tougher than that. He seems completely oblivious to his nudity. Additionally, the monster on the receiving end of his killer slap didn't even realize that he was naked--[[CurbStompBattle not that she had time to]]. The scientists responsible for the monster, on the other hand, have to review the footage of the incident and are forced to ask why a butt naked bald guy just slapped their monster so hard she exploded.
* In ''Manga/OutlawStar'', the first time we see Melfina she's stark naked and about to kick some tail with the rest of the crew, who seemed to pay no mind to her nudity. This happens again a few times in the manga.
* Two characters have a nude final confrontation at the end of ''Literature/{{Paprika}}''. Mercifully (or unfortunately), one has BarbieDollAnatomy.
* Episode 4 of the ''Anime/{{Patlabor}}'' OAV series had a scene where most of the [=SV2=] members were in a communal bath, when the water on the men's side suddenly turned red. Everyone on that side screamed, to which Kanuka Clancy responded by jumping out of the bath, running over to the men's side, and pointing a gun through the doorway. (Yes, she had a gun with her even when in the bath.) Noa Izumi is the one to tell her to [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn please put a towel on]].
* Tomoe from ''Anime/QueensBlade'''s first appearance.
* In the ''Anime/RayearthOVA'', the three Magic Knights pilot their Masshin in the nude. Made [[FanDisservice much less fanservicy than you'd think]] due to the horrifying injuries they get as well.



* Heroic example: Gray from ''Manga/FairyTail'' is pretty prone to these. Even while in the Guild he can suddenly and inexplicably end up naked, and it always surprises him.

* In the ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' Bount filler arc, Yoruichi briefly fights off a Bount like this when she changes from her cat form into her human form. She never does this in canon, but given her legendary lack of shame, she probably would.
* Dark Schneider, the lead character of ''Manga/{{Bastard}}'', does this frequently.
* [[AxCrazy Suigetsu]] from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is introduced this way since his main ability is to [[ElementalShapeShifter turn into water]] and a full body transformation doesn't always include his clothing when he changes back.
* In the original (unedited) version of ''Anime/YuGiOh'', there are a few female monsters that are naked when summoned with the Solid Vision System, covering themselves [[GodivaHair with their hair]] (including Water Omotics and Dreamsprite). The dub version covers them with swimsuits.
* Sorta used in ''Anime/DigimonTamers''. When [[spoiler: Takato, Jenrya, Ruki and later Ryo [[FusionDance merge with their digimons]] ]], their clothes pretty much disappear and they're seen naked [[spoiler: "within their Mons"]]. Most likely symbolic, however.
* In ''Manga/ApocalypseZero'', Kakugo can't remain clothed, and will even strip naked to battle most of the enemies of the series.



* ''Anime/KillLaKill'':
** Sanageyama has twice attempted to continue a battle without his clothes on. [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn Gamagoori would rather he'd not]]. For added awkward, one of this times has [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/makotakesmeasurements_3333.png Mako]] taking... his measurements [[TeenyWeenie and not being impressed.]]
** Later on we also have the appropriately-named rebel army Nudist Beach. They do wear belts and straps to carry their gear, but those don't cover much.
** Ryuko, after she [[spoiler:abandons Senketsu upon the revelation that she's a life-fiber/human [[HalfHumanHybrid hybrid]]]] wipes out a small army of {{Mook}}s and then storms Honnouji Academy wearing nothing [[ModestyBedsheet but a bedsheet worn as a cape.]] Soon after, Satsuki [[spoiler: breaks free of the cell where she was being imprisoned by Ragyo]] and wipes out some of the same mooks while wearing nothing but a pair of shackles (and fighting with a single metal toenail blade.)
* The title character of ''Anime/BirdyTheMighty'' does this in the original manga when she goes out to Tsutomu's house to confront an alien, ignoring Tsutomu's request to "PleasePutSomeClothesOn''. In the OVA's version, however, she [[AvertedTrope obliges with the request]].
* In ''Anime/BladeAndSoul,'' Alka attacks a peeping tom during her bath in episode 1.

{{Fanservice}}, her nudity seems to be a combination ClothingDamage, psychological warfare, and straps to carry their gear, but those don't cover much.

overwhelming strength.
* The title character of ''Anime/BirdyTheMighty'' Knives does this a few times in the ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' manga and ''Trigun Maximum''. Made even more disturbing by the connotations of [[spoiler:{{twincest}}uous rape]] at the end of the manga.
* Maria from the ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'' anime when transformed with a Cloneblade.
* In
the original manga (unedited) version of ''Anime/YuGiOh'', there are a few female monsters that are naked when she goes out to Tsutomu's house to confront an alien, ignoring Tsutomu's request to "PleasePutSomeClothesOn''. In the OVA's version, however, she [[AvertedTrope obliges summoned with the request]].

Solid Vision System, covering themselves [[GodivaHair with their hair]] (including Water Omotics and Dreamsprite). The dub version covers them with swimsuits.



* In ''Manga/OutlawStar'', the first time we see Melfina she's stark naked and about to kick some tail with the rest of the crew, who seemed to pay no mind to her nudity. This happens again a few times in the manga.
* In ''LightNovel/CatPlanetCuties'', Aoi and Manami are in the bath when the burglar alarm sounds. Que both girls rushing outside with their guns without so much as grabbing a towel (although Manami ''does'' grab her helmet).
* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan,'' Titans lack any sort of clothes. Admittedly, they have BarbieDollAnatomy, but the nudity helps emphasize [[UncannyValley how creepily inhuman they are]].
* Cuuko from ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' at first seems to wear something in her Cross Fire Sequence form. However, due to the fact that she is a humanoid alien, combined with BarbieDollAnatomy, it's either that she is wearing body paint or that it is part of her skin and is going naked by that standards.
* Toru Hagakure of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has a superhero costume consisting of only a pair of gloves and boots, which she takes off when things get serious. This is because she has the power of {{Invisibility}} which only affects her body, not her clothing, so she has to be an InvisibleStreaker for her powers to be useful.
* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', the One-Eyed Owl is NakedOnArrival during TheReveal of [[SamusIsAGirl her]] identity. The sequel takes this a step further, with her frequently appearing covered in next to nothing. It is ''never'' a good thing, accompanied by horrifying scenes of [[BreakThemByTalking mind rape]], graphic torture, and maiming of anyone unlucky enough to be near her. Instead of being {{Fanservice}}, her nudity seems to be a combination ClothingDamage, psychological warfare, and a demonstration of her inhumanity and overwhelming strength.
* ''Anime/OnePunchMan'':
** This is the schtick of [[BadassGay Puri-Puri Prisoner]]. When he's not chasing down handsome young men, he's frequently erupting pecs-first out of his sweater vest to deliver a beatdown to the MonsterOfTheWeek.
** Saitama unintentionally does one when he takes out Mosquito Girl--his civilian clothes got scorched off by Genos' attack, but Saitama himself is much tougher than that. He seems completely oblivious to his nudity. Additionally, the monster on the receiving end of his killer slap didn't even realize that he was naked--[[CurbStompBattle not that she had time to]]. The scientists responsible for the monster, on the other hand, have to review the footage of the incident and are forced to ask why a butt naked bald guy just slapped their monster so hard she exploded.
* In ''LightNovel/LordMarksmanAndVanadis'', Elen comments that War Maidens like herself are trained to be ready to fight at all times, even when naked. We get an example when Ludmilla attacks Tigre after he walks in on her bath.
* Ubume from ''Anime/NinjaScrollTheSeries'' prefers to fight nude, excepting for her gauntlet (which stores a whip) and the metal plates she seems to have grafted on her belly and groin.
* ''VideoGames/SenranKagura''
** Turned up to 11 in the Senran Kagura OVA where 25 minutes in, all of the female characters power up to "Super Frantic Mode" and the energy shreds their clothing but they don't seem too fussed about it. They then attack a faceless mob shortly before also having to attack a naked Ryouna because she drank an enlarging potion she thought was a stamina drink. Also, Ryouna happens to be masochistic.
