On the other hand, the "[[ThongOfShielding Thongkini]]" is also something divisive among fans, with some decrying it as blatant fanservice and much preferring her in the SpyCatsuit-style uniform she picked up later in the 2000s.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': For the climactic battle with Aizen, Yoruichi is wearing one of these.
* ''Manga/BusouRenkin'': (Male) villain Pampillon's outfit is...uh...rather fabulous and definitely off-putting.
* All of the Kisugi sisters from ''Manga/CatsEye'' wear one. Of course, despite what some sources say, their leotards are actually [[SpyCatsuit unitards]].
* Kasumi Asou from ''Manga/CityHunter'', who is as an acrobatic [[JustLikeRobinHood Robin Hood-like phantom thief.]] And also inspired to quoted above Kisugi sisters.
* The [[spoiler:seven surviving]] title Manga/{{Claymore}}s wear an outfit like this after the time skip, often with a variant of a short skirt or ZettaiRyouiki.



* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''
** Fate Testarossa. With even less skirt than the Sailor Senshi.
** The uniform of most of the [=N2R=] Nakajima Sisters formed after ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'', which is a leotard with a jacket and chaps worn over it. The only exception is Cinque, who wears a miniskirt with leggings instead.



* Kodachi Kunō of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' will readily [[FlungClothing fling her clothes]] to reveal the leotard she wears underneath with little provocation. Somewhat "justified" by her [[MartialArtsAndCrafts martial art]] being based on rhythmic gymnastics... but mainly because she's a shameless loon.
** Played with a couple of times when Ranma in female form and dressed in a leotard finds herself changed to her male form suddenly.
* Not during the fighting part of the manga, but ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has plenty of gratuitous scenes of Makie performing her rhythmic gymnastics. And it's a flashy routine -- every time we see her practicing in anything ''other'' than her leotard, she gives a ''lot'' of {{Panty Shot}}s.
