* In the anime version of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', Ranma's "trademark" Chinese shirt has no sleeves and he's usually shown wearing arm bracers. In the manga, the closest equivalent shirt had short sleeves -- in fact, there was also a manga version that had long sleeves (particularly when Ranma was in female form), but the anime, most likely due to budget reasons, suffered from something of a LimitedWardrobe. Though that didn't prevent both of the aforementioned manga shirts popping up on occasion. Ryoga Hibiki also occasionally wore a tattered, sleeveless shirt, which looked as though the sleeves were ripped off, but he's somewhat better known for a long-sleeved shirt.

*** ''CrisisCore'' has fun with this since the standard SOLDIER uniform has a sleeveless turtleneck as the top. Zack certainly made it work.

* Comicbook/{{Hawkeye}} from ComicBook/TheAvengers and Comicbook/{{Thunderbolts}}, usually had sleeveless costumes, as did his alternate reality counterpart in TheUltimates. ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' lampshaded this in a ShirtlessScene, where he has a very prominent farmers tan.

One classic variant is when the character has cut the sleeves off of a regular shirt, leaving visibly jagged edges. This was common in TheSeventies and TheEighties. Consequently, an easy way to evoke TheEighties with costume design. Tends to go well with mullets, if you can fit your mind around a definition of "well" that allows it to appear in the same sentence as "mullets" without negations or brain implosion. Sometime before 1990, this trope made you look like a BadAss. Any time after that, it makes you look like a redneck.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' has several variants. The most straight-forward is Hisagi who wears a sleeveless version of the standard uniform top. Shinigami captains also wear a white coat over their uniforms and some (Komamura, Gin, Byakuya, Hitsugaya, Kenpachi) wear sleeveless versions. Kenpachi's has the jagged look to emphasise his BadAss nature since it supposedly belonged to the previous Captain of the 11th Division that he [[KlingonPromotion beat in a duel to the death to gain his position]]. [[spoiler:Tousen after betraying Soul Society]] also wears a sleeveless long jacket. Finally Kensei of the Vizard wears a tank-top [[spoiler:and favoured the sleeveless version of the coat back when he was Captain of the 9th Division]].

* Kotomaru from ''WebAnimation/GirlchanInParadise'' inverts this trope: he's wearing sleeves on his arms. [[MrFanservice As in, shirtless sleeves.]] With regards to the setting, he's still a {{Badass}}.
