* ''ComicBook/ConanTheBarbarian'': Used as a twist ending in a Marvel Comics story. Conan's horse dies early in the story and leaves him stranded in an inhospitable area. The ruler of a local town hires the stranger for a dangerous mission, and promises than Conan can ask for any reward he wants following his return. The ruler's sexy daughter notices Conan staring at her direction, and is convinced that Conan will ask for her as his reward. And she is clearly interested. One hell of a mission later, Conan returns and the daughter seems ready for him. Conan completely ignores her and grabs the fine horse which was always standing behind her. He then escapes with the horse. He only wanted a way to leave the area and was never remotely interested in her.

* You can run around in next to nothing in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and none of the ''[[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]]'' will comment on it. While Dukov will flirt with female player characters even if they walk in wearing so much power armor that you cannot tell the gender of the person inside.

** ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 Final Fantasy X-2]]'' plays it straight with Yuna's cousin, [[GeniusDitz Rikku]], who wears nothing but a yellow string bikini, [[DangerouslyShortSkirt a micro-skirt]], and a pair of boots. Which leaves most of her body on full display. Yet, no one ever comments on it, or seems bothered by it. [[note]]Granted, Rikku lives in a mostly tropical land and many of the game's NPCs also dress for the weather.[[/note]]

** First, as [[TheLeader Roy]] rescues his sister from [[HornyDevils Sabine]], she tries to distract him by opening her shirt and offering to let him do ''any''thing he wants to her. Roy is very interested...because what he wants is [[DestinationDefenestration to throw her out a window]].

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' does this twice in the same arc:

** Later, a now-freed Julia (whose standard outfit is "sexy schoolgirl") tries to get [[TheFettered Durkon]]'s attention with fanservice, but Durkon a.) doesn't respond because he's busy casting a spell, and b.) then goes into "responsible dad" mode and tells her off for acting like that. Julia, amazingly, is actually cowed.
