* Averted by [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1388 SCP-1388]], underwear in a brief style with pictures of superheroes printed on it. Two examples are currently in Foundation custody. They will literally shift spacetime to fit anyone, comple you to want to wear them, and convince you that you are genuinely superpowered, but doesn't give you any superpowers. It makes you think it does, leading you to kill yourself by trying to use your nonexistent powers in real life.

** In Japan this has become a sort of UndeadHorseTrope as women's rights groups denounced bloomers as sexual harassment. There are no schools left in Japan that use them for this reason. It still appears in Anime and Manga because of the generation gap between writers and reality. Some anime like ''LuckyStar'' the writers have ShownTheirWork and the girls wear shorts but most still live in the past.

Most of the characters created by Davey Randle at Creator/RandleSimRacing wear this clothing type, along with bare legs and bare feet, especially due to Davey's love for thighs and pro wrestling. Usually, when his female characters aren't wearing UnderwearOfPower, they're wearing a LeotardOfPower, most notably, Lizzie and Brenda.

** Most of the heroines in TheDCAU wore this if they normally wore a LeotardOfPower instead in the comics, with the exception of ComicBook/BlackCanary.

** Perhaps the silliest one in existence: [[http://www.thefwoosh.com/picsold/albums/userpics/10003/Fin_Fang_Foom_001.jpg Fin Fang Foom]]. A dragon. In underwear. Damn.

Added DiffLines:

A secondary, initially unintended reason why so many characters had this, is because of the low quality of printing used for comics at the time. In a fight scene, making a character's hips distinct from their the rest of their torso and their legs frequently made the action "read" more clearly in a low-quality image (you could clearly see if a character was twisting around, for example).
