** 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.

** The Shivarra are large, [[MultiArmedAndDangerous six-armed]], demon women, with AbsoluteCleavage, and a g-string covering the rear. It's no wonder that Warlocks who upgrade their summons get one to replace their [[HornyDevils Succubus]].

* ComicBook/MsMarvel's leotard is sometimes depicted as a thong. As does 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.

* Kitana, Jade and Mileena all wear a similar thong outfit in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9''. An odd clothing choice, considering these ladies often fight fully-armored opponents who have no qualms about breaking bones and crushing body parts. Sindel's non-fatality victory pose is a SexyWalk, where she turns her back to the viewer (the thong costume showing much of her cheeks), and makes a suggestive gesture with her hips before doing a levitation spin.

** Serena has an interesting variation in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon'', as the thong is covered by a skirt with crossing leather straps forming the seat, sort of a thong version of a CleavageWindow.

* ComicBook/{{Psylocke}} from the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}''. Sometimes her costume covers her behind completely and just shows off her thighs. Other times, it could ''generously'' be called a g-string.
