* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' is an inversion: The titular heroine wears a skin-tight outfit made of [[GodivaHair her hair]], the same material she uses to channel her spells/powers, which means she tends to flash much skin, if not going all out naked, in combat. Her oppositions, meanwhile, are usually fully-covered from neck down [[spoiler:(And in fact, moments before her HeelFaceTurn, Jeanne strips down to the same hair outfit that Bayonetta wears)]]. The same holds true for [VideoGame/Bayonetta2 the sequel]], where her main enemy, the Masked Lumen, shows absolutely no skin until he finally gets unmasked.

* Human Drusilla, who was very religious, was a lot more chaste (as Angel's puts it) than her vampire self, or say, [[AbsoluteCleavage the outfit Darla wore at the same time.]]

This is also beautifully phrased in this iconing, {{Foreshadowing}} line:
--> '''Willow:''' This is me as a vampire? I'm so evil, and skanky... and I think I'm kinda gay.
*** Subverted with Dark!Willow, who sports an outfit far more conservative than [[WhiteShirtOfDeath the saddest shirt]] [[BloodSplatteredInnocents in the history of television.]]
*** Vampire!Xander is also a RareMaleExample of the trope. He sports a sleeveless wife-beater tank, while human Xander (at least at this point of the series) was never shown in a sleeveless shirt (save his single FanService moment on Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E20GoFish, which was explicitly out of charachter).

* ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical'', once he gets his body body back, Voldemort wears nothing but a cape, tight pants, and tap shoes for the rest of the play. EvilIsSexy, indeed. His outfit is actually far more revealing than Bellatrix's (who dresses modestly except for a pretty high slit in her skirt).
* On ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall,'' Linkara [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/linkara/at4w/5906-top15worst notes]] that while men gain more clothes from a FaceHeelTurn, women always become skimpier. He uses [[CharacterizationTags evil!]] [[{{Shazam}} Mary Marvel's]] miniskirt as a prime example.
* ''WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum'' Agents wear bulky black military fatigues. Compare this with the skimpy or overly ornate clothing of the average MarySue...

* In ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'', the protagonist Sarah [[https://creativetotheheart.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/320650_1257004561807_full.jpg dresses like an ordinary teenager]] except [[http://41.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_llvrbyvyhn1qelclno1_500.jpg when she's]] {{LARP}}ing and [[http://www.davonnajuroe.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Sarah-Ball-Gown-Labyrinth.jpg during her]] DreamBallet sequence. Most of the goblins who wear clothes are also dressed modestly, and the ones who don't are subject to NonhumansLackAttributes (and considering that the goblins are virtually all UglyCute {{Muppet}}s, they wouldn't provide much {{fanservice}} anyway). [[BigBad Jareth]], on the other hand, is portrayed by Music/DavidBowie in a pair of PaintedOnPants that serve to emphasize his...''ahem''..."[[UnusualEuphemism Area]]."

* Played with in ''Manga/DeathNote''. Mello wears a midriff-baring top and tight pants (both made of leather), and jewelry. Meanwhile, Near wears simple white [[PajamaCladHero PJs]] and socks. After Mello is ''badly'' burned in an explosion he created, he starts covering up more (although his clothes are still quite a bit more revealing and/or flamboyant than those of other male characters). It's around this time that he starts to be more willing to help Near and showing a bit more humanity. However, the trope is subverted in that [[ByronicHero Mello]] isn't ''entirely'' a bad guy, and Near is more of a PunchClockHero than an ''actual'' hero. Also, it appears that Mello's covering up more because a) he feels self-conscious about his scar and b) the scar would tip off who he is to anyone connected with Kira, not because he's done a ''complete'' 180 or that it's a prerequisite for helping Near.
