As a relatively new phenomenon, the symbolism of Zettai Ryouiki only recently began to crystallize. Since it is, by nature, a sensual costume that symbolizes budding, innocent sexuality, as well as being as a stimulant for imagination and fantasies, it's a common trait for TheIngenue who is already aware of her attractiveness but not (yet) cynical enough to put it to use (which is why many a {{Tsundere}} wears Zettai Ryouiki). Of course, as with any symbols, GenreSavvy characters can {{invoke|d trope}} it on purpose even if they're not related nor do they consider themselves part of the associated archetype.

* Recently (July 2013) Japanese PR firm WIT has started an advertising [[http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/video/2013/jul/21/tokyo-womens-thighs-advertising-video campaign]] where they place ads on young women's thighs, exploiting this principle.

* The Wood Elf Wardancers in the recent video game rendition of ''TabletopGame/BloodBowl'' achieve this look when they reach a high enough level (or receive the best boots in the real-time Blitz Mode). Though odds are that most people's attention will be on the massive mohawk they have, rather than their thighs.

** Rin Tohsaka in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' single-handedly codified the legendary Grade S: a mixture of AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance and character traits widely considered best suitable for the look. 57 cm stockings, double ponytails and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/FSN_rin_tsuntsun_deredere.jpg one of the best known]] {{Tsundere}} personalities in anime history qualified her for entry to the [[Pantheon/PersonalAppearance Personal Appearance Pantheon]].''

** Rin Tohsaka in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Let's see... 57 cm stockings: check. Double pigtail: check. {{Tsundere}}: [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/FSN_rin_tsuntsun_deredere.jpg check]]. Yes, Rin Tohsaka ''is [[Pantheon/PersonalAppearance Grade S]]!'' Rider does not have a grade as high as Rin's, but she certainly qualifies too.

* Sae from ''AmagamiSS'' often displays this when in her school uniform, as does Kaoru in her waitress outfit (much to the protagonist Junichi's delight during her arc).

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Sayaka Yumi tended to wear short skirts whether she was wearing her school uniform or casual clothes. And later in the series she wore a ''very'' short white-red skirt and knee-length, white boots. In the manga versions more female characters wore attires or uniforms that showed their tights, such like the Gamia or [[spoiler:Minerva-X in ''ShinMazingerZero''.]]

It gets lampshaded in FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya by Shirou who (under the effect of [[TheGadfly Ruby]]'s TruthSerum) complains about her using this trope to compensate for her ''[[ACupAngst lack of confidence in another area]]''.
