* In the {{egregious}}ly {{stripperiffic}} Danish {{CGI}} movie ''WesternAnimation/RonalTheBarbarian'', more characters wear thongs than not, even the female barbarians who aren't shown that often. [[LeatherMan The General]] wears a lot more than the barbarians, but even he prefers his buttocks bare so he can whip them. [[AvertedTrope Unfortunately]], [[ActionGirl Zandra]] keeps her butt covered.

NippleAndDimed for the backside. Provided that the gluteal cleavage (that's the bit between the buttocks) is covered, you can show a massive amount of rear and get away with it.

NippleAndDimed for the backside. Provided that the gluteal cleavage cleft (that's the bit crevasse between the buttocks) buttocks, i.e. "butt crack") is covered, you can show a massive amount most of rear the buttocks and get away with it.



Often a feature of the BarelyThereSwimwear. Not to be confused with ChainmailBikini.

a ChainmailBikini that provides literal shielding against damage, though a chainmail bikini may incorporate this kind of skimpy thong.

* Ivy's costumes seem to show more and more of her buttocks with every new game in the ''VideoGame/SoulSeries''. And her boobs. Don't be surprised if by ''Soul Calibur V'' her costume is simply drawn on with a purple Sharpie. Oddly enough, her default costume in ''SCV'' is surprisingly ''modest'', with less skin showing and not much more than a CleavageWindow.

* Carol Danvers[=/=]ComicBook/MsMarvel's leotard was sometimes depicted as a thong below the waist. As was ComicBook/{{Mockingbird}}'s second 'gymnastics' outfit. Moonstone, when she was taking Carol's name during ''Dark Reign'', actually lampshaded this by complaining about the costume, even questioning the oddity of an outspoken feminist wearing something so revealing.

* Early on in Film/AttackOfTheClones Obi-Wan and Anakin investigate [[CoolestClubEver a nightclub]] and one of the female patrons in the background is wearing a thong, with her butt clearly visible. This is especially jarring for a Star Wars film, but the film still managed to get a PG rating with no mention of the partial nudity.

* Daphne from ''VideoGame/DragonsLair'' wears a teensy thong teddy and a silk robe. Why everyone insists on calling this a "dress" escapes me.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qop8oF2q2Us The trailer]] for the Android system's ''War 1937'' has a character who manages to do this with PoweredArmor. (Rather shamelessly.)

* Barbarian hero Grignr from ''Literature/EyeOfArgon'' is a Conan the Barbarian {{expy}}, however, unlike most characters of this type, Grignr does not wear a fur {{loincloth}}- he is described as wearing a ''g-string''.

* In Creator/RalphBakshi's ''WesternAnimation/FireAndIce'', all of the men's {{Loin Cloth}}s bare a fair amount of buttock, but the most guilty (unsurprisingly) is Princess Teegra. Not only is her thong very narrow, but it's partly see-through, and a bit of buttcrack sticks out over the top. Plus she spends a lot of time with said ass pointed at the camera. And since this film came before the PG-13 rating, it's only PG. Rather crepy considering she is [[AgeInnapropriateOutfit only 15]].

** Early on, this trope was played depressingly straight -- many of the early plate armor sets gave female characters a metal bikini. There were so many comics pointing this out to the point where Blizzard forbade any more on the subject. Partially due to the fan outcry, modern day generic armor is better, but the trope is not completely averted. However, the endgame "sets" that people get at level 70 and 80 ''do'' completely avert this trope -- they mostly look the exact same regardless of gender.
