* 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 (just 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.)

** [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-Zagged: some aliens like [[MagmaMan Heatblast]] and [[PlantAliens Wildvine]] wore nothing more than the Omnitrix symbol, while others like [[MultiArmedAndDangerous Four Arms]] and [[TheGreys Grey Matter]] wore a suit patterned like Ben's shirt. Some even had ''natural markings'' like Ben's shirt, such as [[PinballProjectile Cannonbolt]].

* Certain ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' (Machoke is a good example) have clothing, even when found in the wild. Arceus only knows where they get it.

* Certain Many humanoid ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' (Machoke is a good example) have clothing, even subvert this by appearing to be wearing clothes for our benefit, when found in the wild. Arceus only knows where they get it. they're actually a natural part of their biology.

** Justified in that the loincloth is actually covering what is likely several gaps in the armor that allow movement. Without the cloth, there would be more of an issue in that ''Al doesn't have any parts''.

* Another DCUniverse example, 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.

** Strangely, Bender suddenly seems to feel the need to cover up in any situation where a human would, such as getting out of a bathtub, or sitting in a steam room. On at least one of these occasions, his towel has fallen... exposing nothing, lampshading just how ridiculous it is for him to be using one in the first place.

* Averted with real world monstrous animals (bears, rhinos, sharks, etc.). While they're not wearing shorts, most predators do not have noticeable genitalia, so there's no real need for modesty. It's either retracted, covered in fur, or small enough to be ignored. People forget that humans have a dis-proportionally large penis as compared to other predators. So when artists and authors started making humanoid monsters, old timey morality standards required them to draw them covered up.
