* Bathtub Granny from ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'' wraps herself in a towel in the rare instances of her leaving her bathtub.



* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'''s first episode begins with [[WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck Donald]] is getting ready for a job interview; he wants to wear his usual sailor suit, but the triplets force it off of him, saying that he needs a suit. Donald quickly pulls on a towel, despite the obvious FridgeLogic that a.) NonHumansLackAttributes and b.) [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal he wasn't wearing pants before anyway]].

* In Series Five of ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Doctor, under the (mistaken) impression that his roommate is being attacked, races out of the shower to rescue him, barely managing to wrap a towel around his waist beforehand. Considering that this is the [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace Eleventh]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Doctor]], it is rather impressive that he remembered to grab a towel at all.

Added DiffLines:

*On page [[https://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND-306-Heads-and-eyes-up-694674662 306]] of ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'', Jareth inverts this trope. While a ModestyTowel is usually used to... well, preserve one's modesty, Jareth uses it as an opportunity to blatantly invoke a ShirtlessScene. This is made even more egregious by the fact that Jareth can (and frequently ''does'') magically poof into different outfits--he has no ''need'' to ever be only partly-dressed. Also, the towel he wears seemingly a hand-towel, not a bath-towel.
-->'''Sarah''': ...Jareth we don't even own a towel that small.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhUZOCRkPZY This]] Proactiv commercial features Creator/OliviaMunn materializing out of nowhere to the shock of a young man in a towel to tell him that Proactiv will clear up his face quicker than the cream he was about to use. His towel, of course, falls and Munn tries to back out of the room.

* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico'' features ModestyTowel as a ''battle costume'' for Aurica. Somehow, it gives away most stats of all her clothes selection.

The TheissTitillationTheory is often involved as well, since it's immediately obvious that a towel worn like this is in constant danger of [[WardrobeMalfunction slipping loose and falling off]], a possibility that can be made even more imminent if the wearer makes a sudden movement or reaches for something, causing the towel to ''almost'' fall.

fall. If the towel ''does'' slip, the wearer will likely resort to HandOrObjectUnderwear to maintain some measure of modesty/dignity.

* In one episode of ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld,'' Shawn answers the door wearing just a towel when he first meets Angela, who would soon become his LoveInterest. He's clearly smitten with her immediately, and Corey, who's been recording everything in Shawn's apartment ''a la'' ''Series/TheRealWorld,'' is standing off to the side, muttering that he should drop the towel.

At this prompting, Angela actually kisses Shawn for Corey's movie, while he's still only in a towel.
