*** A player with 100 points in Pickpocket and the Perfect Touch perk can quite literally steal the shirt off someone's back...and their pants, gloves, boots, helmet, rings, necklaces, and weapons, while you're at it.

* Harpo Marx' talent at pickpocketing is no better depicted than in ''Film/{{Coconuts}}'' where he steals handkerchiefs effortlessly, a pushy cop's wallet and badge, the same cop's SHIRT while its being worn, and for a grand finale, Groucho's dental plate!

** ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'' has Meliodas steal Elizabeth's panties while she's wearing them. While demonstrating what a pervert he is, it turns out to have a practical purpose: when a bunch of duplicates of Elizabeth show up, Meliodas has them do things to try and prove who's the real one, and when he tells them to jump up, the real Elizabeth can't because she's too embarrassed about her missing panties. Meliodas gives them back afterwards.
