Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/SaberMarionetteR'', the heroes dress more modestly than the {{Stripperiffic}} Sexadolls. This, and the sexually aggressive nature of the Sexadolls also serves to mark a contrast on how Junior and his marionettes are children while Star-Face and the Sexadolls are adults.

* Marvel's Hellfire Club, where the ladies dress in fetish gear and Sebastian Shaw likes to bare his chest for action.

to:

* Marvel's Hellfire Club, (most associated with the ''ComicBook/XMen'' sub-franchise, although they occasionally tangle with non-mutant heroes) a gentlemen's club (in both senses of the phrase) for old-money evil mutants, where the ladies dress in fetish gear and Sebastian Shaw likes to bare his chest for action.



* The comparison shows up when a DC or Marvel good gal gets brainwashed or possessed or simply chooses to be bad. 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''... although the trope was then subverted in ''ComicBook/NewXMen'' when she stayed a good guy while wearing one of her most outrageously sexualised costumes ever.

Just as good and evil can be ColorCodedForYourConvenience, you can also tell them apart as heroes dress sensibly (more or less), and villains dress in skimpier outfits.

* Parodied, along with most of the UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks, in Creator/GrantMorrison's one-shot [[Comicbook/DoomPatrol Doom Force]]. The villainess first shows up dressed fairly sexily, which her brother finds disgusting - because she's wearing too much clothing. She obligingly switches to exotic lingerie. The brother, meanwhile, later shows up in a speedo and pasties.
** The parody comes in that her brother basically tells her to wear more revealing clothing because it's supposed to make her more empowered as a woman. Her response:
--->'''Una''': But I'm freezing cold!
* In DC's ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'', Arrowette lampshades this when she fears she's turned evil. "I'll have to get a tight, skimpy black leather outfit that shows off my cleavage. Oh God, I'll have to get cleavage!"
** Turns out to be a BrickJoke: the payoff comes in a later story, ''World Without Young Justice'', in which Bedlam has managed to MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight so the three YJ founders don't exist. This universe's "Dark Arrowette" is indeed wearing a skimpy black leather outfit. And has cleavage.
* The UnfortunateImplications of this trope are lampshaded in an issue of ''ComicBook/AvengersAcademy'' where the Avengers confront Cyclops' post-''Schism X''-Men team. Hawkeye (IIRC) says of Emma Frost, "I knew someone who dresses like that couldn't stay a good guy!", to which Tigra responds, "What does that make me? Doctor Doom?"

* Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/FireAndIce'' with the two most prominent female characters: while the heroine [[DistressedDamsel Princess Teegra]] is [[WalkingSwimsuitScene clad in a tiny bikini all the time]], [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Juliana]] wears a long purple dress that is far more modest than Teegra's outfit.

* 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.

* One gets the sense that ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' was trying to use this trope, only the female lead characters were so {{Stripperific}} that it would have been hard to make the female demons [[UpToEleven even more so]]; therefore, the Charmed Sisters are only marginally less sexy than the female demons. Male demons would seem to be a straighter example of this trope, at least in the later seasons, when you had fellows like Zankou using leather outfits as a symbol for their status as evil demons.

The human heroes wear lots of clothes and high collars, both to keep out the perpetually chilly weather and to provide an extra layer of protection for their tender flesh and blood. The werewolf villains wear next to nothing because their clothes rip up every time they transform, while vampires deliberately wear skimpy costumes as a way of showing off their immunity to cold and their lack of fear of other vampires.

Averted in ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'', in which the Mirror Universe costumes are not particularly revealing. According to WordOfGod, the showrunners were deliberately trying to avoid SexIsEvil.

* 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''..."[[ICallHimMisterHappy Area]]."

* The MirrorUniverse in ''Franchise/StarTrek'' did this right from the start in "Mirror Mirror", with female uniforms based around BareYourMidriff and male uniforms showing slightly more chest. Varied in the Mirror episodes of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' with the two Kiras; while Mirror Kira's black leather catsuit shows even less skin than normal Kira's red uniform it's still a lot more openly sexual. Averted in ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'', in which the Mirror Universe costumes are not particularly revealing.
