* 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 {[fetish}} 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.

* ''Film/{{Millie}}'': DirtyOldMan Damier gives 16-year-old Connie a kimono--or a "Mandarin coat", that is--as part of his effort to seduce her. It is working, as they share a passionate kiss, when Connie's very angry mother Millie bursts in.

* In a live action western male version, ''Blonde'', a Creator/MarilynMonroe biopic, is mostly notable for featuring Patrick Dempsey and Creator/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).

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?

* 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.]]
