* The Thing from the ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' is a prime example. He was turned into a monster and was traditionally disgusted with his appearance. Despite this, he often just wears blue underpants. When the team donned their costumes for the first time in Vol. 1 issue 3, Ben had a full-body costume and a silver helmet completely covering his head, but he quickly discarded them, complaining that the costume restricted his movements. Although usually sticking with his team-colored trunks, he wore a singlet in his solo book and his brief stint with the ComicBook/WestCoastAvengers. Around the time the Invisible Woman began wearing a rather {{Stripperiffic}} version of her costume, the Thing adopted a new bodysuit, which also saw the return of the helmet for a while after ComicBook/Wolverine slashed the right side of his face during a tussle over the fugitive status of the Human Torch, leaving Ben's face vulnerable for a time. More recently he's been wearing pants, but still no shirt. In the a recent reboot of the team, after the Human Torch was believed dead, as the Future Foundation he's taken to [[http://www.petpeoplesplace.com/petstore/pet-image-large/ff-fantastic-four-variant-1-djurdjevis-gatefold-cover_140537862800.jpg actually wearing a full uniform.]] At various points he's also been seen in a tank top, especially during his stint as a wrestler. The amount of clothing he's wearing at any given time probably has to do with the artist's deadlines as much as anything else.

* The Thing from the ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' is a prime example. He was turned into a monster and was traditionally disgusted with his appearance. Despite this, he often just wears blue underpants. There was a time (circa issues 290-300) when the Thing wore a full FF body suit and a helmet to hide his shame. The helmet was to help him heal after a set-to with Wolverine, who took a swipe at Thing's face during a fight over who would take Johnny Storm into custody. More recently he's been wearing pants, but still no shirt.

* Inverted in ''ComicBook/AtomicRobo:'' the title RidiculouslyHumanRobot always wears full pants and usually wears a shirt and sometimes a hat because it helps him fit in better (or as he puts it "I wear pants because it's the law").

* For Dr. Manhattan of ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'', the level of clothing he wears at a given point of time indicates his growing detachment from humanity. At first, he continues to appear fully dressed after his transformation. But as time goes on, he pares down the uniform more and more until it's barely there at all (from full-body spandex, to a leotard, to speedos, then literally nothing). (His last TV appearance creates a capsule version of this, going from a rather smart suit on the set to pretty much nothing after his abrupt departure cuts his last ties to Earth.)

* During Creator/MarvelComics' monster-era, many of the monsters would wear a pair of underpants. They ranged from giant space dragons such as ''Fin Fang Foom'' to radioactive creations. The non-sentient monsters didn't make much sense, considering they shouldn't know enough to have any modesty while the intelligent monsters should be a bit more selective in what they wear. Case in point, the aforementioned Fin Fang Foom, a giant alien dragon that is from such an advanced race that... they are apparently okay with walking around in underwear. Fin Fang Foom occasionally appears without the shorts, and [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/Foom%205.JPG may not even need them]]. There is also the question as to how they found [[FridgeLogic giant pairs of underwear.]]

* Another DCUniverse example, ComicBook/TheSpectre, who is a ghost in a green cloak and matching shorts. In ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'', he was hinted to only be wearing the cloak, as several of his poses had him holding the cloak as if covering up his lower body.

* Sean and Patrick in ''Film/TheMonsterSquad'' engaged in some ConversationalTroping about this trope in regards to the Wolfman in an earlier scene. Sean points out that the Wolfman had to wear pants because those movies were made in the 40s and they didn't want us to see his..."wolf dork." Yeah.

Yeah.Later on in the film, they actually have to face the Wolfman, and it is confirmed through Horace's GroinAttack that Wolfman does, indeed, have nards.
