* Leliana of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins,'' being the beautiful French spy who is rather aggressive in seducing you, is a rather literal example. Morrigan plays the trope more straight, with The Iron Bull of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' being a rare male example.
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' has Isabela (who had a brief appearance in the first game, but looked a lot different). Isabela is an exotic, busty beauty who wears a shirt that bares about a foot of cleavage, [[OfCorsetsSexy a corset]], [[PantyShot no pants]], and ThighHighBoots. She is also sexually aggressive and offers the player character a FriendsWithBenefits relationship fairly early in the game.

** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' actually has two rare male examples. The Iron Bull is a sexually aggressive mountain of muscle, and most of his outfits have him shirtless or nearly so. Downplayed with Dorian, who is also an attractive man but whose outfits generally reveal less than Bull's. Although Leliana returns, she does not count this time around.

*** And it's back in the Smash Bros series' Wii U and 3DS entries. Somehow giving her the FanservicePack treatment despite already being the series' MsFanservice.
** ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'' has a number of ending stills that were left out of the international release, unlockable by beating the game in varying levels of completeness and time. One in particular has Samus in a sports bra and cut-off shorts, and appears to be in her early 20s. Yowza.

** They at least ''try'' to justify it in-universe: they don't wear bulky, heavy armor because their fighting style is based on [[FragileSpeedster running and jumping around while stabbing things]]; the large amount of skin (along with spells/pheremones) can be [[DistractedByTheSexy disarming to their enemies]]; and finally the only reason their entire society is devoted to [[WarGod Khaine]] instead of [[SenseFreak Slaanesh]] is that Khaine is at least conducive to a well-functioning military. Not to mention the fact that they literally [[BloodBath bathe in blood]] as part of [[ImmortalityImmorality a magic ritual to maintain their youth]]. The more of it they can [[BloodSplatteredWarrior get on their bare flesh in battle]], the better. Of course, this is more "the creators explaining the solutions" rather than "the characters solving problems."
* Action-[=MMORPG=]'' VideoGame/{{Vindictus}}'' plays this completely straight and self-aware. Of the three characters types available at launch, two are female (two more male characters are released later) -- tank Fiona, and CuteWitch Evie. Along with this, there are a few other indications that the devs deliberately ratched up the {{Fanservice}} levels:

* The second and third ''Franchise/MassEffect'' games began applying this trope. While in the first it was pretty subtle, the second game throws subtlely right out the window, with love interests getting quite a bit of interesting camera time, and the absence of the heavy armor from the first game in favor of tight outfits that resemble {{Spy Catsuit}}s and kinky gear. Even [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] got in on the act. His/her face can be customized, but the body and default looks are nothing to be sneezed at, at all. Throw in how nice s\he looks in the armor, [[BadassInANiceSuit several]] optional [[LittleBlackDress outfits]] and [[MaleGaze some of the camera angles]] and Shepard qualifies.

* ''VideoGame/HauntingGround'': Played for drama, in a sense, with Fiona The two main outfits she wears during the game are tight-fitting and sexualized, but both were forced upon her by men with an extremely perverse lust for her and the overall effect is more disturbing than sexy, particularly when paired with her innocent, angelic appearance. Played very straight in the case of some of the unlockable outfits, however, including the "Illegal in Some States" dominatrix outfit.

* The game ''VideoGame/JurassicParkTrespasser'' was made to create a completely HUD less game. The health tattoo on the avatar's chest was mentioned to be a part of it along side elements such as no reticle, you shot along your gun sight (and you controlled your arm) as opposed to the center of the screen and controlling your view, you had no ammo counter, and so forth.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' takes this to its logical conclusion; her magical hair forms her costume, and is used for her attacks. This means that parts of her clothing disappear during attacks, and her finishing moves render her entirely naked aside from just enough coverage to keep it from getting an AO rating. The pure absurdity of the sex appeal on display in the trailers alone - never mind the final product - was almost certainly intentional on the part of the development team, many of whom are Clover refugees. [[VideoGame/{{Okami}} Knowing]] [[VideoGame/GodHand their]] [[VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe previous]] [[VideoGame/MadWorld work]], they seem quite happy keeping a self-mocking sense of humor throughout.

* Lara Croft of ''VideoGame/TombRaider'', and all its sequels, is the TropeCodifier with her infamous bustline. This was [[ExaggeratedTrope played up more and more]] with each sequel until the ContinuityReboot, in which her proportions took a downgrade to "normal but athletic."
** And while the reboot makes her proportions more sane, her ''clothes'' are still oftentimes overly skimpy.
** However, she only kept those proportions for two games in the new series. As soon as ''VideoGame/TombRaiderUnderworld'' came out, whilst she was still fairly realistic, her boobs had definitely gone up a few inches. Which seems odd considering it's supposed to take place immediately after Tomb Raider Legend, which first introduced her more modest figure.
** The second reboot which turns the series into survival-adventure, once again puts her back to a more realistic set.
*** Creator/ConanOBrien's [[http://teamcoco.com/video/clueless-gamer-conan-obrien-reviews-tomb-raider "review" of the second reboot]] hangs a a massive Lampshade on her ThirdPersonSeductress qualities.

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3'' took this to the point of ludicrousness. All women in the game, from every rank and file in the Allied, Soviet, and Imperial armies is pin-up quality fanservice with {{Stripperiffic}} uniforms, which makes one wonder if they made it a rule at some point to only recruit ex-models as army officers.
