FanService Fatale

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
The band is rocking out in their new video, and hey, they've got a hot lady in it! Looks like we're in for Three Minutesof Writhing and wait, did she just eat the drummer?! Run guys run! Oops, too late.

This is when an attractive woman is put in a video, but instead of just being there for Fanservice also winds up making a meal of the band members in the music video.

==Examples==

  • Sick Sick Sick by Queens of the Stone Age has the band changed up while a woman is having a feast and each member is taken away individually and made into the woman's next course.
  • The video for "Everybody Talks" by the Neon Trees. There is a lot of focus on a pretty blonde who lures several male victims behind a building where she turns into a demon and (implicitly) eats them. At the end of the video she lures the lead singer into her van.
  • The band Lit has famous music video that has a massive Pamela Anderson watching their performance. At first she seems like she's only there for Fanservice but at the videos end without warning she starts to eat the band members alive.

  • Reversed in the music video of The Animal by Disturbed, where the vampire-like Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl is dissatisfied with the feast on raw animal meat (snakes, goat heads, etc), so she sends her wolves to butcher the band-members who are playing the song. Instead they tame the wolves off-screen and by the end are dinning on her prepared corpse and sipping her blood from wine glasses.

    I think this might be Too Rare To Trope , but not quite as untropable as most untropable YKTTW's.

    I'd suggest you'd loosen up the definition: not just ladies who eat the bandmembers, but any lady who appears to be in the clip for fanservice, but is revealed to be the bands' greatest danger. I think that would come up with more examples.

    Well, this trope looks like it needs help. Here's my best example.

    • Reversed in the music video of The Animal by Disturbed, where the vampire-like Stringy Haired Ghost Girl is dissatisfied with the feast on raw animal meat (snakes, goat heads, etc), so she sends her wolves to butcher the band-members who are playing the song.

    ^ I'll tell you, a fanservice who turns out to be a deadly in some way isn't confined only to music videos.

    I remember about a film, about an alien masquerading as a human woman trying to find a human male to mate with, and she has lots of fanservice shots, and she kills her mates not long after she meets them when she find them unsuitable.

    Yeah, this title sounds much broader than the trope, let alone the specific medium of music videos. It sounds like a Femme Fatale that's also played as Ms Fanservice.

    ^ when aren't they?

    I don't like the current name: depends too much on background knowledge of other tropes.
