[[spoiler: to show him her physical scars after her [[IllGirl breast cancer]] caused her to have a mastectomy.

Kimono are also a specific type of Japanese FetishFuel, in ways not easily explained to the uninitiated. Firstly, people are expected ''not'' to wear western-style lingerie underneath, as a bra would ruin the bustline (which should be smooth), and pantylines are a definite no-no. Secondly, the whole body being wrapped in one lovely package typically spells out (in the case of a girl) "youthful", "innocent", "proper", "charming" and "eligible" in kimono code. Few people in Japan know enough about kimono to detect every nuance, but the message seems to trigger some subconscious level of understanding. The idea of getting to open up such a prettily-wrapped present thrills many a mind, similar to [[OfCorsetsSexy corsets]]. There's also the fact that, no matter how much of the body is covered, the Ultimate and Most Bewitchingly Sensual Mystery of the Female Body (i.e. the nape of the neck) is revealed for all to see. Add to that the long shape and restriction of the garment forcing one to adopt a lady-like elegance (or, for guys, a tall and dignified posture) and, well... what's not to like?

* In ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'' this is Kuroka's (Koneko Toujou's older sister) standard attire, with an ImpossiblyLowNeckline to boot. And with the series being very much an {{Ecchi}} series, it's played for FetishFuel as she's also a ShamelessFanserviceGirl. She eventually reveals that she [[GoingCommando wears absolutely nothing under her kimono]] as she takes it off and dives into the Hyoudou residence swimming pool, naked.

* The [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] DLC mission 'Hoshidan Festival of Bonds' in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' shows Midori, Dwyer, Ophelia, Shigure, Forrest, and Nina in kimono for the festival. Rather oddly, half of the characters are exclusive to the ''Nohrian'' path (although could possibly be half-Hoshidan). Equally oddly, Nina's portrait shows her with [[OffModel two right feet.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', on New Year's Day, when the girls are all wearing kimono, Junpei claims that every guy fantasizes about how there's [[GoingCommando nothing underneath]]. Unfortunately, he said this Ken who [[FromTheMouthsOfBabes asks the girls if they are cold because of this reasoning.]]
** If Junpei got to try he'd be sorely disappointed as there in fact would be underlayers upon underlayers underneath. Especially in winter.
** In the PSP version with the Female Protagonist, you can go out with Junpei to summer festival with a yukata. He sings the praises of the yukata and how sexy the Protagonist looks. And you wear a kimono on New Year's Day too with the other girls. Too bad nether are shown save from the shoulders up.
** Amusingly, Junpei may ask the female main character if girls are really GoingCommando with a kimono (which in several regions is the case, just not ''everywhere'') and the possible answers are "Yes.", "No." and "I'll leave that to your imagination."
* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', [[YamatoNadeshiko Yukiko]] wears one when she works at her family's inn.
** It also has all the girls wearing yukata for the summer festival, which Teddie finds very exciting. Kanji is too embarrassed to even look at them.
** On New Year's Eve, the guys work themselves into a tizzy over the thought of the girls showing up in their yukata... only for them to instead come bundled up in winter clothes like them, because it's bloody cold!

* In a live action western male version, ''Blonde'', a Creator/MarilynMonroe biopic, is mostly notable for featuring Patrick Dempsey and JensenAckles in a threesome. It also is notable for having Ackles swishing around in a kimono, much to the pleasure of fangirls (and probably a few [[EvenTheGuysWantHim fanboys]] too).
