The EvilTwin of {{Fanservice}} from another dimension, possibly with a [[BeardOfEvil goatee]] (especially if female). Fan Disservice looks like regular garden variety {{Fanservice}}, except that the creators intentionally use the circumstances around it to make the scene outright creepy or disgusting. Corpses in sexy poses, dialogue that adds MoodDissonance, seeing someone naked who you ''really'' wouldn't want to see naked...there's a hundred and one ways that titillation can transform into horror. Just think of how many {{Slasher Movie}}s have {{Fanservice Extra}}s meet their demise by way of DeathBySex.

Note that it often seems that film schools grind this into their students, as far too many movies intercut sex scenes with scenes of violence or {{squick}}, to truly rub in our faces the polarity of beauty and horror. Of course, the directors [[TrueArtIsAngsty just want to be artists]] (that, or they're puritanical types who are obsessed with portraying sex in the most negative light possible). But sometimes it's implemented in a funny way, so the director can just mess with you.

Fan Disservice can still wind up being {{Fanservice}}, if you're into that sort of thing. Also, due to TroperDemographics, there are ''many'' examples linked elsewhere on the wiki which are listed as disservice solely because they involve naked ''men''. Male nudity by itself is ''not'' Fan Disservice; there ''are'' [[MrFanservice demographics that male nudity]] tends to be {{Fanservice}} for. Some drag queens are often subject to this trope.

Also, it's pretty important to state that not ''all'' Fan Disservice is 100% tied into graphic squick. Context can also be vital into separating FanService from Fan Disservice; in example you can have a very gorgeous person in diverse states of undress and the visuals are technically pleasant to the eye, but the ''circumstances'' that led him or her to be like that can come from BreakTheCutie, BreakTheHaughty, a TraumaCongaLine, etc. Therefore, neither the most artistic and perfect drawing style nor the most tasteful angle shots can make this particular scene/shot enjoyable - you're too busy [[TheWoobie feeling sorry for the protagonist instead.]] Fan Disservice may also overlap with NightmareFuel.

For the ''un''intentional version, see FetishRetardant.

Sometimes, there's nothing objectively wrong with the body in question, but the context of the situation makes it unsexy. See FullFrontalAssault.

This trope can often overlap with NakedPeopleAreFunny - as often as not, naked people are funny precisely because of Fan Disservice.

''Note: This trope is for deliberate, intentionally unsexy things.''
