* Present to some degree in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. Kyouko's non-magical outfit is basically just short shorts and a sweater--everyone else [[SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack wears school uniforms]] when not in costume--and she's by far the most belligerent character. Homura appears to be the antagonist, yet has the most conservative magical outfit. [[spoiler:This is a clue that she's NotEvilJustMisunderstood.]] TheMovie gets considerably less subtle when [[spoiler:Homura]] goes full villain and gets a borderline-{{Stripperiffic}} outfit to match.

* This also carries over into the spin-off ''DissidiaFinalFantasy''. Just compare the Cosmos and Chaos female characters. Terra wears a fairly normal outfit, albeit with a miniskirt, though she is wearing tights underneath. Shantotto, as someone ([[TokenEvilTeammate marginally]]) on Cosmos's side, wears a full uniform. Cosmos herself is wearing a long white gown. Meanwhile, the Chaos side only has two women - and they're Ultimecia and the Cloud of Darkness.

** It gets a little amusing in the {{Prequel}} game, ''Dissidia 012'', where we see that several heroes were on Chaos's side in the previous war. [[spoiler:Terra]] loses the leggings and skirt in favor of a white leotard and a hip scarf, and [[spoiler:Tidus]] seems to have developed an [[WalkingShirtlessScene allergy to shirts]]. [[spoiler:Runs in the family, I guess. Cloud]] actually gains more clothing with much fancier armour, but also adds more jewellery, and [[spoiler: Jecht]] is exactly the same despite being a good guy.

* ''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...
