Along with this, there are a few other indications that the devs deliberately ratcheted up the {{Fanservice}} levels:



** Turned up another notch with mage character Evie. Her primary armour is magical and passive; with her clothing functioning primarily as StatSticks. Result: many cute female characters running around in their underwear.

Added DiffLines:

*** Made less of a SelfImposedChallenge with cosmetic outfits which are ''literally'' just underwear.

* Creator/{{Vanillaware}}'s [[DoingItForTheArt beautifully-designed]] BeatEmUp RPG ''VideoGame/DragonsCrown'' includes the [[BuxomIsBetter busty]] and [[ShowSomeLeg leggy]] Sorceress and [[ChainmailBikini scantily-clad]] [[AmazonianBeauty yet very muscular]] Amazon as player characters, who exhibit Vanillaware founder George Kamitani's [[AuthorAppeal usual art style]] [[BestKnownForTheFanservice very readily]].

* ''Franchise/StreetFighter'': While most female characters fit this trope, there are a few standout examples.
** Chun-Li was the very first woman in a fighting game, so she has held this position by default. Her [[ShesGotLegs famous thighs]] are a massive draw for people who like that sort of thing, and in ''Videogame/StreetFighterV'' [[MsFanservice she is given FAR more costumes than any other character]], allowing players to pretty much play dress up in any way they prefer.
** Poison is considered one of the sexiest characters in both franchises of the shared ''Street Fighter''[=/=]''Videogame/FinalFight'' universe, both due to her [[TransgenderFetishization highly sexualized looks, behavior and moveset]] and because she's the only confirmed transfemale in that universe. So in addition to the people attracted to her sexually, she's also beloved by the trans community for being their only self-insert character.
** Menat became an instant sensation from ''the very day she was released'' in addition to being the main franchise's first character from Egypt, Menat has a very outgoing, bubbly and graceful demeanor. Players were ''instantly'' captivated by even her standard walking, sitting, and taunt animations, to say nothing of the [[FanservicePack extremely sexy]] costumes she has been given.

* While by no means the default, the female Lone Wanderer in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' can be played this way if you put her in a skimpy enough outfit (such as the Raider outfits... or actual lingerie) and use the third-person camera, since the walking animation for females is this [[BuffySpeak sauntering type of thing]] with a fair amount of [[SexyWalk hip-swaying]]. Same for the female version of the Courier in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' and to a lesser extent the female Sole Survivor in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''.

* 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."

* 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.
