Usually this is an anime trope, but Western culture has independently produced the college prank of panty raiding (which has been out of fashion since the sexual revolution of the sixties). Panty raids are usually perpetrated by ''groups'' of perverted young males, rather than just one guy.

* In the second case in ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', one of the witnesses gets involved when it's discovered he steals panties. This leads to the odd situation of Apollo having to present multiple pairs of panties as evidence in court (not to mention Apollo can keep both of the panties afterwards for some hilarious commentary).

** Jack Rakan deserves special mention. In one manga chapter, he ends up having to fight two girls.

** Chamo's reputation as a PantyThief was subverted in ''Anime/NegimaSecondSeason'': One chapter involves Negi chasing a small PantyThief throughout Mahora academy, and many a reader expected it to be Chamo. [[spoiler:It was a cat.]]

''after'' she's worn them.



* Tomoki from ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty''. He frequently steals women's underwear. Sometimes he even wears stolen panties as a mask!



* Koragashi of ''Manga/KamenNoMaidGuy'' can easily steal the panties off ''the entire female population of a high school without them noticing'' but doesn't do so for perverted reasons. Instead, he is trying to identify a suspicious person and the only clue he has are her unique panties. His partner, Fubuki, tells him that he didn't have to go to such extremes though and promptly punishes him via remote-controlled explosion.



* ''Manga/ZatchBell'' has a character named Momon, who looks like a cross between a rabbit and a monkey. When Kiyo meets him, he's holding a bra for some reason. When Momon meets the others, he spends countless attempts to see Tia's panties, and somehow manages to steal another pair from her house. Needless to say, Tia ''rages''.

Panty Thieves usually go about their business while wearing StealthClothes. An unintentional version is KleptomaniacHeroFoundUnderwear; in this case, someone is trying to steal ''something else'', and ends up with panties.

panties. An ImpossibleThief may steal the panties that their victim is ''currently wearing'', usually without even being ''noticed'' until the thief presents their trophy for all to see.

* The M.U.G.E.N series, ''PantyThiefMysteries'', by [[http://http://www.wenoo.net/user/chimukun chimukun]] is built around a group that steals panties. Interestingly it does not even contain one male perverted villain, in an all female cast. A 1 episode sequel titled ''Anime/ASetsukoChristmasTale'' was later released, also with a case of a different panty thief.

Talking to [[NiceGuy Katsuya]] after this and choosing to tell him about the incident triggers a sequence where he runs off to chase the man down and beat him up off screen.

An individual -- almost always a pervert of some kind -- who steals and collects women's (or girls') underwear, usually worn/used. Almost always presented as a reprehensible individual and usually an enemy of the hero, and just as frequently played for laughs. They can be divided into the StalkerWithACrush who steals a specific person's underwear as part of a general stalking campaign, and the indiscriminate, compulsive underwear thief who usually doesn't engage in more serious sexual offenses and is more likely to be treated as a comic figure. One might call such a character a "knicker nicker."
