* ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' Sakura; despite short pleated skirts of both the schoolgirl and cheerleader variety and dozens of fanciful battle costumes, Sakura remains covered.

* ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} is an interesting case: for most of her career, she had a Magic Skirt when she wasn't wearing short-shorts in TheSeventies. Then the 2000s Kara Zor-El lost that ability due to artists going for "[[{{Fanservice}} realism]]", until the editor decided to give her ModestyShorts instead. Finally, the ComicBook/{{New 52}} version had a costume redesign and wears a LeotardOfPower with no skirt.

* Though they DO happen, considering how crazy the dance moves and short the skirts are, panty shots in ''The idolm@ster'' are surprisingly rare unless you purposely set the camera settings to a low angle.
** In the second vision games such as iDOLM@STER 2 and iDOLM@STER One For All(which has more detailed graphics and physics) it's justified. Some skirts are really close fitting, some appear to be held in place by hoops, some have ModestyShorts and some skirts [[SubvertedTrope aren't magic at all]].

* Link in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]''. He spend a fair portion of the game walking on the ceiling (magnetic walls + iron boots), yet the skirty portion of his tunic stays firmly in place, gravity be damned. His hat, however... Ironic since this is the first time that Link wears actual pants so it wouldn't be indecent.

Added DiffLines:

* Lynne from ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' has a DangerouslyShortSkirt, but never provides a PantyShot. Not even when she gets inside the small service elevator in the junkyard.

* CuteGhostGirl Dee Ensy Stratmitos from ''LightNovel/SundayWithoutGod'' wears a magic skirt; after all, no flying ghost should leave home without one.

* The two [[TriggerHappy high-kick-to-the-face happy]] female leads of ''Manga/AngelDensetsu'' manage not to flash the reader every other panel ''without'' any kind of Magic Skirt. It's all done by skillfull camera angles. It's lampshaded a couple of times when someone flashes some other character.
* The DVD box art for ''Manga/BGataHKei'' has Yamada in a pose just like the TropeNamer's. Her skirt is much shorter than Yuno's, yet it still manages to defy gravity just enough to cover everything.

* ''Manga/KamikazeKaitouJeanne'' wears one of these. Despite being a {{Kaitou}} who does a lot of impressive acrobatics, we never catch a glimpse of her panties. Maron, too, in the TransformationSequence that involves her jumping from a high place and transforming in mid-air. Apparently the skirt is turned off when Chiaki is around, though, as their very first meeting involves her falling on the floor and him commenting on the "great view". The skirt is mostly active only when she is moving. If she's sitting holding her knees, then the magic magically disappears.

* In the anime of ''Anime/SandsOfDestruction'', both Morte and Rhi'a wear {{Dangerously Short Skirt}}s and spend plenty of time jumping and fighting, but their underwear is never seen. In the first episode, Morte even crouches facing towards the camera, but under her skirt is just pitch black. However, when sitting on the ground, she's occasionally shown holding it down between her legs, and a DVD {{Omake}} notes that a particular fight scene wasn't used in the show because she accidentally flashed her panties at the camera. Episode seven even deals with [[WardrobeMalfunction her skirt accidentally ripping]] unbeknownst to her, and yet nothing is ever shown. The HotterAndSexier [[Manga/SandsOfDestruction manga]] is fond of averting the trope, however, using [[MaleGaze convenient camera angles]] to show the edge of her butt.

* In the 2002 live action ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' movie, Velma falls off a scaffold and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Velma_8925.jpg gets her foot caught in the scaffold's chain, making her hang upside down]] when it goes taut. Her skirt does not fall over as the studio wanted to maintain the "family film" sense. Word is that Linda Cardellini (who played Velma) had her skirt taped to her legs so it wouldn't flip over as she hung upside down. In [[Film/ScoobyDoo2MonstersUnleashed the 2004 sequel]], Velma jumps into a boat vent funnel and for a couple of frames, this trope is averted.
* In ''{{Film/Troy}}'', Achilles' (Brad Pitt) leather skirt somehow manages to completely obscure all private parts, despite Achilles leaping into the air with his legs spread apart.

** Averted for a split-second when Vanille's l'Cie brand explodes before her Eidolon Battle, and you can see she's sporting orange panties. It's also possible to play around with the camera and high ground to see up her skirt. (it's easier said than done, though.)
