* Invoked in ''Anime/DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys'', as the boys call for Ringo to "fix their internet connection" (which happens to be a router bolted to the ceiling, requiring a stepladder to reach). While Ringo's up there, they all take the opportunity to peek, but Ringo remains oblivious. Afterward, the boys remark that doing so actually made them feel more guilty than happy.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Misato and Kaji are trapped in an elevator during a power blackout at NERV. She ends up kneeling on Kaji's shoulders, warning him not to look up her skirt. Kaji clearly wants to just get out of there and has no intention of doing so, especially when Misato says she [[PottyEmergency urgently has to go to the bathroom]].

* Zigzagged in ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}''. In the last chapter, Naegi and Kirigiri climb a ladder going up several storeys out of the trash dump, but she choses to go second to avoid this. Then in the next scene, the camera is looking straight up at both of them while they talk, and [[MagicSkirt her skirt is shadowed completely]]. After beating the game and getting to her School Mode ending, like with everyone else's School Mode ending (male and female) Naegi wins a pair of her underwear as a prize, and their description reads ([[MaleGaze as if speaking to the male audience]]) that they're so black that it'd be extremely difficult to see them from any angle (meaning it's possible the player actually was looking at them the whole time). [[http://media.tumblr.com/4dcd788440745389f1bb10c574252e72/tumblr_inline_n90teo8DGB1qj8e7z.png The official artbook says]] her skirt has "an iron wall defense."

* The Savannah College of Art and Design had, very briefly a clear glass staircase. This was quickly replaced by a frosted glass staircase for this reason.

She's not always successful. But if she's lucky, [[AllMenArePerverts not all men in-story are perverts]]. If it's the ''cameraman'' who does this, then it's MaleGaze. Of course, this is often a RealLife concern for women and part of the rationale for ModestyShorts or SkirtOverSlacks.
