Added DiffLines:

* Star Wars usually inverts this, with Jedi and rebels sticking with light clothing and the occasional bit of outright Stripperific costume, while the villains are bundled up like it's winter in Seattle or wear all-enveloping robes or suits of armor they never remove. A villain removing clothing is a sign of redemption or hidden virtue on several occasions, and Luke's clothing adds layers and becomes more all-concealing as he slips toward TheDarkSide.
** This is likely related to [[BeautyEqualsGoodness what engaging in villainy does to your physical appearance]] underneath the clothes.

* [[http://www.comicsbulletin.com/soapbox/125461888840692.htm Princess Aura's metal bikini with shoulders & cape]] from the 1980 film of ''Film/FlashGordon'', although some of the heroes were wearing pretty immodest outfits too. Flash himself gets a pretty long ShirtlessScene.

* Would seem to be the case in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': Princess Hinoka of Hoshido wears a modest dress with practical armor and only shows a small amount of leg as a Pegasus Warrior, while Princess Camilla of Nohr wears black lingerie to display her ample assets. Then it's subverted twice: Hoshido has Orochi, Rinka and Syalla (the former two show quite a bit of skin while the latter wears SensualSpandex), while Nohr has the modestly-dressed Flora, Luna and Belka. Secondly, either side can be hero ''or'' villain depending on which path you take [[spoiler:and neither in the ''Invisible Kingdom'' path]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'':
** The very first trailer and the "Alive" animated short featured rivalry between fully dressed, heroic Tracer against [[AbsoluteCleavage cleavage-baring]] evil sniper Widowmaker.
** Normally, Mercy is fully covered and definitely on the heroic side. However, in the Junkenstein's Revenge mode, where she was the BiggerBad, she wore a HotWitch costume with exposed cleavage and thighs.

Contrast MinidressOfPower, {{Stripperiffic}} (since good girls can wear both).

** Some examples from Marvel comics: The Phoenix (Jean Grey?) as the Hellfire Club's Black Queen in the Dark Phoenix Saga, the Invisible Girl (as she then was known) turning into skimpily and spikily dressed Malice in ''Fantastic Four'' #280, and Madelyne Pryor when she became the Goblyn Queen. Meanwhile, when Emma Frost became a good guy, she started wearing a slightly less skimpy costume in ''Generation X''.

** ''[[VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn Dark Dawn]]'' continues the tradition with [[BlowYouAway Karis]], [[{{Badass}} Sveta]], and [[ShrineMaiden Himi]] all wearing practical, modest outfits while still managing to look good. And then there's Chalis, who... well, [[http://goldensunwiki.net/images/b/ba/GSHeart.jpg see for yourself.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', both Cloud and Sephiroth are supposed to be wearing uniforms from the same military organisation. Cloud's outfit is cloth trousers, a tank top and short combat boots. Sephiroth wears [[CustomUniformOfSexy leather pants, tall leg-hugging boots and a leather coat open to show off the kinky studded body harness under it.]] Then there's the ultimate evil, Jemova, who is first witnessed as a [[GrossupCloseup headless pair of breasts]]...

* In ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]'', all of the female villains with the exception of Limstella show some amount of cleavage in their artwork. On the heroes' side, all of the player's female units are modestly clothes and aren't (with the exception of Lyn) too well-endowed with the [[HeelFaceTurn potential]] exception of Vaida, who starts off as an enemy anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/EnsignSueMustDie'', Ensign Sue wears the normal Enterprise uniform for a medical officer, which is pretty all-covering (of her top half, at least- it still has only a miniskirt for the bottom part), and her mirror universe counterpart Empress Sue wears a [[BareYourMidriff navel-exposing]] tank top and short skirt.
