* ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' has its [[ChildSoldier little girl soldiers]] wearing ''no'' pants at all, resulting in them walking and fighting around in underwears, or perhaps, something look like them.

* ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' has its [[ChildSoldier little girl soldiers]] wearing ''no'' pants at all, resulting in them walking and fighting around in underwears, or perhaps, something look like them. This is justified by the equipment they wear needing direct skin contact for better control.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' has Frieza, his father King Cold, and several of their minions -- Captain Ginyu, Zarbon, and Jeice, among others -- all running around in their underwear. Seems to be standard issue in Frieza's army.

* ''SpaceChannel5 Part 2'': According to its description, the Super Ulala Suit is "Rumored to be just underwear." (If that's the case, it'd be some pretty unusual underwear . . .)
* Videogame/DeathSpank wears naught but armored boots and a purple thong (called the "Thong of Justice") on his lower body.
* In Videogame/ScarletBlade, underwear can increase your character's stats and, if you so desire, you can run around wearing just that.

* ''SoulCalibur 3'' and ''4'' allow you to do this in their character creation, and, in fact, you generally have to do this in ''Soul Calibur 4'', since ClothingDamage is almost assured anyway. The only four real options for underwear are [[{{Loincloth}} furry [=loincloths=]]] (for men), UnderwearOfPower (for both) in all shapes in sizes (from actual thongs (for the guys) to a bottom and pantyhose (for the girls)), and a couple versions of LeotardOfPower.
** For those who prefer their fights in SoulCalibur 4 to look less ridiculous by having your character actually be wearing something by the end of it, there are full suits of mail armor for both genders.

* The infamous codpiece worn by God Tier Gamzee in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. Less extremely, a similar item worn by his ancestor, the Grand Highblood. God tier Pages also wear tiny speedos as part of their outfit.

* The Spartan warriors of ''Film/ThreeHundred'' all wear little leather man-panties and opera capes. The panties are to avert a FullFrontalAssault -- they didn't bother with them in the graphic novel. Although in real life, the Spartans wore bronze armor; part of their superiority as a fighting force was their use of bronze armor, shields, and weaponry.

* Everyone from ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' count as examples of the underwear on the outside variety. Could be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] since superhero designer Edna Mode is rather unconventional, and may have a strange sense of humor to boot.

** ComicBook/{{Robin}} (Dick Grayson), is a notable example, as him wearing this is one of the things that started all the Batman HoYay that the early Batman comics are ridiculed for. Strangely the original Robin suit started out as a modified version of Dick Grayson's old circus outfit, actually making it a LeotardOfPower
