* Non-nudity related example: In the manga of ''Manga/DeathNote'', the Third Kira of Yotsuba Group ([[spoiler: Higuchi]]), whose identity is meant to be a surprise in the manga, thinks that he should use his Death Note to kill Matsuda, but can't because if he went home alone, the others would suspect him, and his thought balloon obscures his face, preventing the reader from finding out who it is. By contrast, the anime does not attempt to hide that [[spoiler:Higuchi]] is Kira.

* In one chapter of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', Momo destroys her top with her creation power, and her modesty is only preserved by her dialogue. Jirou gets an eyefull, though.

** See strip #750 (June 4, 2013; nonetheless NSFW) for one example. It's maybe doubly necessary and doubly funny here because Senna is a {{transsexual}}, and casual readers may not realise exactly what they're not seeing.

Added DiffLines:

* The 24th issue of ''What The--?!'' had a segment called "Misprints in the Comics", which had humorous situations and premises happening to Creator/MarvelComics characters because of a single word in the series' title being changed. The panel for ''ComicBook/NewWarriors'' had the team become the Nude Warriors and forced to go home naked except for their masks after a stay in Las Vegas. Nova's crotch is covered up by his speech balloon, [[LampshadeHanging pointing out how handy it is to have it censoring his naughty bits]].

* Creator/ScottMcCloud does this in ''[[ComicBook/UnderstandingComics Making Comics]]'' when he talks about talk bubbles. When he mentions the placement of talk bubbles, the panel shows him as Michelangelo's ''Art/{{David}}'' with his hair and NerdGlasses, and his speech is covering where the statue's penis would be.
