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

** Venus, the GenreSavvy and aggressively snarky one to shut done everyone else's antics, has a hoodie with no sleeves.
** Viginis has a white sleeveless shirt, [[HairTriggerTemper gets angry easily]], and burns people's faces off with his hands.

* 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}}.

* In ''Manga/KiniroMosaic'', Karen comes to school once with her vest over a shirt that she has ripped the sleeves off of, leaving jagged edges. She insists she can get away with it because it's super cool, but quickly gets out a normal shirt when it's suggested her parents will find out.

Added DiffLines:

* The Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' all have default outfits with either very short sleeves (for example: Garnet, Sapphire and Steven) or no sleeves; which possibly fits them into this trope since even the weakest Gems are physically stronger than humans.

* Almost a uniform for anybody at a gym with good arms, especially if they use free weights.

* Almost a uniform for anybody at a gym with good arms, especially if they use free weights. Justified in that sleeves would constrict blood flow when flexing the arm if you've got oversized muscles. ''If''.
