** THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage does the miniature black hole version of this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* In the ''VideoGame/StyleSavvy'' series, ridiculously short skirts would inevitably lead to this, so the games make is so that there is literally nothing underneath the skirt, just hollow empty space the same color as the skirt.

* The titular heroine's skirt in ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' isn't too extreme apart from a few situations like when she's bouncing down the rocks in Tamatoa's lair. However, her sidekick Maui has a fairly short skirt made up of individual leaves stuck into a rope around his waist. This alway covers him perfectly, even when he's climbing up rocks or masts or flipping like during ''[[IAmSong You're Welcome]]''.

* Roxanne in ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'' has a dress that manages to hug her figure and stay around her legs ''when she's upside down in mid-air''.

* In "The Poltergeist" episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' Nicole Watterson spends a good part of the episode hanging upside down in one of the traps Richard has set for "the ghost" ([[spoiler:Which turns out to be a depressed Mr. Robinson as revealed early in the episode]]). Her gray pleated skirt doesn't move an inch.



* In the ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries Batman & Robin]]'' episode "Love Is a Croc", Killer Croc grabs Baby Doll's foot and holds her upside down long ways up from a HVAC fan. Baby Doll's skirt stays firmly in place, [[http://dc314.4shared.com/img/YVhjuLho/s7/0.6601169053773861/BABYDOLL1A.JPG only giving a shot of her panties]] from an aerial view as we see the giant fan below.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheCatInTheHatKnowsALotAboutThat'': In "Whale Song", Nick and Sally do headstands; Sally's dress does not fall over.



* In ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'', Zapp Brannigan wears a skirt so short that it should not be as all-covering as it is. One can only assume nebula!God intervenes to keep it in place. Worse, in one early episode, it's implied that he's going ''commando'' under there.
* The loincloths that the {{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}} wear seem to do an unusually good job of keeping their naughty bits covered.

** Spryte the fairy from the old cartoon, who should rightfully have flashed Link every other time she moved. Averted at one point in the first episode. When Spryte fell over due to the earth shaking, it was revealed (in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene that [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar flew a high-speed night mission under the radar]]) that she wears [[spoiler: [[VaporWear nothing at all]] underneath her skirt]].
** Link too. In the series, there are several occasions where he is forced to fight wearing only a turquoise shirt and it hides his shame despite him doing flips, kicks and jumping around. This is most prevalent in the first episode. In a later episode this is slightly subverted when his tunic falls down and we see that he is wearing [[GoofyPrintUnderwear boxer shorts]], but these would have been fully visible in several of the previous shots and yet they aren't until that point.



* A rare male example: the 1960's era cartoon ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyHercules'' has the title character in a short robe that barely covered his essentials. But, even when jumping off Mount Olympus and falling feet-first toward the plains, it did little more than flutter around his legs.



* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''' dresses cling tightly to their bodies even while they fly around and fight monsters. It's more a stylistic choice than a censorship trope, because due to their young age and simple designs they're already shown in their underwear from time to time. Bubbles and Buttercup have. Blossom hasn't.



* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Lisa's trademark red sundress; especially egregious as it's a ''dress'' with no waist, which should logically fall all the way down to her shoulders whenever she's upside down.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Lapis Lazuli's long skirt usually is very [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/steven-universe/images/1/10/OG_-_30.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20150816212147 free-flowing]], but it fits more like a [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/steven-universe/images/6/67/Screen_Shot_2015-03-15_at_2.24.56_AM.png/revision/latest?cb=20150315062649 pencil skirt]] when she sits with her knees up.

* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' does this often with Lindsay and Gwen. May be justified by the blocky, simplistic drawing style -- if the clothes moved like regular fabric, it'd look odd.

* Amalia and Evangelyne from ''{{WesternAnimation/Wakfu}}'', despite being both [[ActionGirl quite active]], have magic skirts whether in their normal clothes, nightgowns or even cheerleaders outfits. With the latter, during the Gobbowl match, they perform a "body letters" routine with Yugo to spell "RUEL STROUD", and the skirts stay glued to their backsides even when doing the two "U" with their legs.
* Despite having four characters with skirts of some sort, the main heroines of ''{{WesternAnimation/WITCH}}'' always have Magic Skirts, even to the point where one episode has a monster holding a transformed Hay Lin (who has the worst of the designed skirts) upside down, yet the skirt is still up right!
