->''"Creating a tempest whirling at speeds of a hundred kilometers per hour around the target, whilst the target herself feels nothing but the soft touch of a gentle breeze! Truly the ultimate wind technique for granting the dreams of men!!"''
-->-- '''[[LovableSexManiac Jack Rakan]]''', ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''

A female character's skirt or dress being lifted by the wind; sometimes it can instead be done with a ManInAKilt. May or may not result in a PantyShot, depending on the presence or [[GoingCommando lack of underwear]], the angle it's seen from, and the victim's reaction time (for some reason, they always tend to be quicker on the draw when it's seen from the front). Bonus points if the wind is sudden and unexpected, causing the woman to shriek and try to push the skirt back down. Oftentimes the woman actually enjoys the experience, or at least the attention it gets her. RuleThirtyFour most definitely applies here as the subject is FetishFuel for a fairly wide audience.

The [[TropeCodifier iconic example]], of course, is Creator/MarilynMonroe's white dress in ''Film/TheSevenYearItch''. However, Kelly [=LeBrock's=] scene from ''The Woman in Red'' is also well known, and is frequently parodied in Europe (particularly Italy), perhaps because ''The Woman in Red'' itself is nearly a shot-for-shot remake of the 1976 French film ''Un éléphant ça trompe énormément'', also known as ''Pardon Mon Affaire''.


* A male kilt example with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSNKrYyt55M this Sierra Mist commercial]], featuring Creator/PattonOswalt stepping out of a St. Paddy's Day parade to do The Marilyn Maneuver. Quoth an onlooker, "[[FanDisservice That's just wrong, Dad.]]"
* Sometimes seen in commercials from the 1970s, '80s, and '90s for products like pantyhose (back when a lot more women wore them than do today), Nair (see Image Links above), or any other product designed to make a woman's legs look nicer.
* In Australia's Avis Super Savers ad, the Avis girl walks past a line of cars with men leaning out to watch her, then opens the door of another car, causing the air conditioner to blow her red dress around as if she's standing over a fan (matching panties can be just barely glimpsed). The all-male line of drivers get a rear view of her and hoot with delight.
* In a 2014 commercial for Pepsi Wild Cherry, a woman's white dress with cherry patterns billows quickly after a man pops the cap off a bottle of the beverage. Then, the cherry patterns fizzle away or dissolve as the man drinks the soda.
* Sprite commercials from the late '80s, featuring the freestyle group The Cover Girls, would include them twirling in flirty skirts as they danced, revealing their panties.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Shugo spies two female [=PCs=] in the middle of this in ''[[Franchise/DotHack .hack//DUSK]]''. Someone on the dev team for The World must have done quite a bit of research, as Shugo is quite enamored with the "bump mapping."
* An accidental one occurs in ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' Chapter 5 when Sayoko pressures Keiichi to date her, and boy... [[http://www.mangareader.net/161-10472-13/ah-my-goddess/chapter-5.html does the System Force responds!]]
* Yuuji's [[WeNeedADistraction bright idea]] in ''LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts'', complete with the white dress, [[AffectionateParody at least in Yuuji's head]], that is.
* The indirect cause of the entire plot of ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}''.
* Happens to some passing schoolgirls in ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'', just as Chi happens to be on a quest for underpants.
* At the end of an otherwise serious episode of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', where Kogoro discovers one of his old friends resorted to murder, he cheers himself up by looking out the window of his second floor office during a gusty day.
* Several times to Shizuka in ''Manga/{{Doraemon}}'' (with natural wind or often caused by Doraemon's gadget).
* In the ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' manga, this is parodied on one of the {{omake}} pages, where Al's loincloth blows up.
* At the begining of the first OVA adaptation of the visual novel ''Harukoi Otome'', a strong gust of wind leads not to one but ''seven'' panty shots in quick succession. No surprise, this being a {{Hentai}} anime.
* ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler''
** Subverted when [[ChasteHero Hayate]] is worried about this happening at least at two different points, but both girls cheerfully announce that they are actually wearing shorts underneath their skirts so if he makes some wind that is okay!
** Also played straight when he does this to Maria while demonstrating his new FinishingMove.
* Seen in a chapter of ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'', when Momoka is shown doing this as part of her "sex appeal" training.
* Twice in ''Manga/LoveHina''; to Naru when they're returning from Pararakelse and to Mutsumi during his meeting with Keitaro.
* When Shamal from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' uses her magical device Klarer Wind to heal the protagonists, her dress does this.
* Several times in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''
** Jack Rakan even has a technique that's solely meant to invoke this trope after he's stolen his opponents' panties. See page quote.
** Yue accidentally does it to herself once when she's trying to demonstrate some wind magic.
** Also used early in the manga as a side effect of Negi's [[SneezeOfDoom sneezes]] when they ''don't'' cause ClothingDamage.
* There is a OncePerEpisode gag in ''Manga/MaicchinguMachikoSensei'' where the main character's skirt if flipped up one way or another. She always ends up in this pose. Female students are not immune also and join in the pose.
* Natsuki in the fourth episode of ''Anime/MaiHime''. And she wasn't wearing panties.
* Asuka's introduction in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''.
* In ''Anime/OkusamaWaMahouShoujo'' Ureshiko accidentally causes this to herself at the beginning of the first episode.
* In ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'', a perverted ghost possessing a car drives fast enough to raise skirts with his slipstream.
* It happens in an ImagineSpot to Ash's mother Delia in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' when walking to a movie premiere on a windy day.
* Happen to the girls in "Sasuga No Sarutobi" when the main character, the young ninja Sarutobi, use his wind-based techniques.
* Happens to Haruko in ''Manga/SlamDunk'', when Sakuragi is running around like the LargeHam he is.
* In ''Manga/SoulEater'', Hero causes a mass occurrence of this by swinging Excalibur really hard, just to show off and [[AllMenArePerverts enjoy the view]].
* Happens to Ling Ling in ''Manga/SteamDetectives'', providing Narutaki with [[EurekaMoment a valuable clue to a recent string of robberies]]. Unfortunately for him, [[AccidentalInnuendo she interprets his comments completely differently...]]
* Several times in ''Manga/StrawberryOneHundredPercent'' to Aya and Nishino, especially the first to show her strawberries panties. The story begins with this.

[[folder:Comic Book]]
* [[http://www.comicvine.com/what-if-34-what-if-no-one-was-watching-the-watcher/4000-35376/ The cover]] of ''[[ComicBook/WhatIf What if No One Was Watching the Watcher?]]'' featured [[FanDisservice Uatu the Watcher]] doing this.
* Cheryl Blossom from ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' in a [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-iiKU0OQhIK0/UpZF7qT3V6I/AAAAAAAACm4/8JkEhi9gOy0/s1600/654225.jpg cover]] from her mini-series "Cheryl go to Hollywood" homage Marilyn.
* ComicBook/{{Natacha}}: The album cover of "Instantanés pour Caltech" features Natacha both in a MarilynManeuver as well as a TheYellowMShoutOut.

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* This happens to Fanny in ''ComicStrip/DeKiekeboes'' album "De Medusa Stichting".
* An old "The Lighter Side Of..." cartoon in Magazine/{{MAD}} featured men reminscing how much fun it was to let the ventilator lift up women's dresses when they were younger. Nowadays they consider it to be less fun, since women's skirts gradually became smaller. They've become ''tighter'' too, so one isn't even guaranteed a lifting anymore.
* {{Parodied}} in [[http://www.gocomics.com//theargylesweater/2011/06/01 a strip of]] ''ComicStrip/TheArgyleSweater''. A woman is standing over a subway vent holding her dress like the famous Creator/MarilynMonroe shot...rather than go inside the laundromat and use the clothes dryers there.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* In ''Anime/SpiritedAway'', this is what happens when Haku dashes past the slug-spirit girls while trying to keep Chihiro from being discovered.
* This was played with during the Fairy Godmother's Song in ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek 2}}''.
* In the DisneyAcidSequence "Round My Family Tree" from ''Disney/TheTiggerMovie'', a Marylin Monroe version of Tigger does this only to be blown straight up and across the horizon.
* Happens to the constellation of Virgo near the end of the song "Zero to Hero" from ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' as Herc and Pegasus fly through the night sky, causing a nebula surrounding the constellation as if it were wearing a dress to fly up, causing Virgo's dress to blow off as the two fly away.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* This happens in 1916 Creator/MackSennett short film ''The Surf Girl''. Seriously. OlderThanTelevision.
* Marilyn Monroe's scene was copied in ''Film/PulpFiction'', by a Marilyn impersonator. Since she was a waitress at a Fifties-theme restaurant, this is presumably a regular occurrence. Unlike Marilyn in her movie, the impersonator lets her skirt go all the way up.
* Kelly Lebrock in ''Film/TheWomanInRed''.
* Darkly parodied in the film ''Film/{{Insignificance}}'', in which Marilyn Monroe's -- sorry, ''The Actress's'' skirt billows up in response to a nuclear blast and catches fire... Fortunately it's AllJustADream of [[UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein The Scientist]].
* Parodied -- gruesomely -- in ''Film/TheHouseBunny'', where Anna Faris' character tries the Marilyn Maneuver while standing over an open manhole... and gets scalded. We then see her recovering from her injuries with a male companion in a restaurant, and her legs are heavily bandaged with gauze - and those areas that aren't bandaged [[{{Squick}} have ugly welts on them]]. It's as if the filmmakers wanted to guilt-trip the audience by saying: "[[YouBastard You bastards!]] You were ''laughing and hooting'' at this!"
* Happened near the beginning of the 2001 movie ''Tart'' starring Creator/DominiqueSwain, but wasn't that good. The video cover was better than the actual scene. She wore a mini Catholic school skirt and was already walking halfway out of frame by the time her skirt went up. You need Widescreen or to zoom out to even see it properly!
* In ''Film/WrongfullyAccused'', Creator/LeslieNielsen ends up in this situation while infiltrating a Scottish pipe band, complete with kilts. His legs are suspiciously shapely, and there is a sound effect similar to blowing into a glass bottle.
* Bruce from ''Film/BruceAlmighty'' uses his new God powers to blow up a woman's skirt.
* The sequel ''Film/EvanAlmighty'' has [[http://www.impawards.com/2007/evan_almighty_ver5.html a poster parodying]] the trope.
* In the second ''Film/{{The Italian Job|2003}}'', Lyle talks about a stereo "so loud, [[GaleForceSound it blows off women's clothing]]." We see him actually ''use'' this at the end, but the results of the blaring stereo are avoided through a SexyDiscretionShot.
* In ''Film/TheAwfulTruth'', a nightclub singer does a tasteless number called "My Dreams Are Gone With The Wind" in which her skirts are disturbed by blasts of air from below every time she sings "gone with the wind."
* In the 1982 Scott Baio comedy ''Zapped'', a FanserviceExtra at the prom does one by climbing on a table while a strong wind blows through the gym. She ends up getting more than she bargained for when her dress is then blown completely off of her -- the woman ends up topless.
* Leslie Ann Warren does a dance routine in ''Film/VictorVictoria'' in honor of UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}} (the Windy City!), where wires simulating the wind lift, and eventually pull off her dress.
* ''Film/TheCovenant'': the boys use their powers to settle a bet on what kind of panties a [[FanserviceExtra waitress at the bar]] is wearing by blowing up her skirt. The boy who bets that she is GoingCommando wins.
* ''Film/DangerDiabolik'' has Valmont's mistress doing this, while standing [[TooDumbToLive stupidly close]] to an airplane's trap door.
* The 1986 Italian comedy ''Grandi Magazzini'' has a scene where two [[FanserviceExtra Fanservice Extras]] dance on a ventilation grate and offer up [[PantyShot Panty Shots]] for our viewing pleasure. One woman is a Kelly [=LeBrock=] lookalike wearing the red dress from ''The Woman in Red''. The other is a long-haired blonde wearing Marilyn Monroe's iconic white dress. See Image Links above or this borderline NSFW [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q83Lviuwamg 40-second video]].
* During the opening credits of the 1995 film ''Panther'' (which is a fictionalized account of the uprising of The Black Panther Party), there are scenes in which a boy riding a bicycle notices a woman in a green hat and dress named Bernadette is at a bus stop. The boy peddles toward her checking her out and sees a bus driving across the street, heading in their direction. The boy anticipates the draft from the passing bus to blow up Bernadette's dress, which evidently does, she gasps and is mortified. When her dress gets lifted, rather than holding that down, she holds on to her hat to keep that from getting blown away and raises one leg, knee bent forward, to hide part of her unmentionables, which are white panties with matching girdle (or corset). The boy enjoys the view and gets a snicker out of it.
* Also happens in ''Film/{{Torque}}'' (2004) to show just how fast they're driving... among other things.
* Appears in ''Film/TheSmurfs'' when Smurfette has the vent blowing up air into her skirt.
* In another racing movie, ''Film/{{Driven}}'' from 2001, the draft from a speeding race car causes a blonde's (who's standing in line) skirt to lift up, she lets out an abrupt shriek and she turns around while trying to pull it back down in place.
* In the 1998 film, ''Woo'' (the eponymous character portrayed by Jada Pinkett Smith), a breeze blows under the helm of her loose-fitting, pink mini dress as she walks down a sidewalk, nearly high enough to show her goodies. A bicyclist ogling at her gets so distracted he doesn't watch where he's going, crashing into the side of a sewer pipe and falling off his bike.
* In 2000's ''[[Film/TwoThousandAndOneASpaceTravesty 2001: A Space Travesty]]'', a flight attendant (Stephanie Dumolin-Shaw) climbs up a ladder on a space shuttle and her dress blows up from behind, showing off her nearly nude booty that can still be seen through clear pantyhose ([[GoingCommando she doesn't seem to be wearing any panties]]), due to a lack of gravity and Marshal Dix (LeslieNielsen) checks her out.
* [[AlphaBitch Christine]] gets a big one at the end of '''Film/RomyAndMichelesHighSchoolReunion'' thanks to the downdraft from a helicopter.
* In ''Putting Pants on Philip'', one of the first Creator/LaurelAndHardy films, this happens to a kilted Stan on more than one occasion. The last time, we see only the shocked reactions of the onlookers because his tartan underpants had fallen down a few moments earlier.
* When the requisite super weapon is activated in the {{Kaiju}} parody ''Geharha: The Dark and Long Haired Monster'', it creates strong wind currents that starts throwing abandoned vehicles around and blows up one random woman's skirt. The scene of the latter gets a thumbs up from the machine's activators.
* Clara Bow, one of the earliest examples of MsFanservice, has this happen to her at an amusement park in ''Film/{{It}}'', some thirty years before the TropeNamer.

* Ginger dreamt this scene in ''Discworld/MovingPictures'' (which contains innumerable {{Shout Out}}s to classic movies).
* Intentionally invoked by Maureen Smith, Lazarus Long's mother (with [[ParentalIncest all that]] [[{{Squick}} implies]]), in Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/TimeEnoughForLove'', complete with VaporWear. Interestingly, the [[TimeTravel time period]] in which this occurs significantly predates Marilyn Monroe, but Maureen was always ahead of her time.
* Featured on the cover sleeve to a book by Joan Rivers called ''The Life and Hard Times of Heidi Abramowitz'' where she imitates Marilyn on the front cover... [[spoiler:and intentionally hiking up her dress on the back of the book!]]
* In ''The Takers'', a modern-day IndianaJones pastiche by Jerry Ahern, Mary-Frances Mulrooney's skirt has a habit of blowing up providing everyone with a PantyShot. She gets a WolfWhistle too while boarding a nuclear submarine. A naval officer tells off the seaman responsible, then explains that [[ShesGotLegs none of the women who boarded earlier got a whistle like that]].

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* One of Russ Abbot's sketch shows played with this trope. A Scotsman walks over a grating and is disconcerted to find the air blowing his kilt up. The next grating he comes to, he's ready for... except that it's an air ''intake'', and pulls his kilt clean off.
* ''Series/{{NCIS}}''
** The show does a homage when Abby dresses as Marilyn Monroe for the Halloween episode.
** Also happens to [=DiNozzo's=] fantasy of Kate, though in that case she is dressed in a [[CatholicSchoolgirlsRule Catholic school uniform]].
* Some of the miniskirted female members of ''Series/RowanAndMartinsLaughIn'' had this occur.
* In the mid 1970, Angie Dickinson was dressed in a Marilyn Monroe outfit in an episode of her series ''Series/PoliceWoman''. A publicity photo showed her skirt blowing all the way up, showing she had on a flesh-colored body suit underneath.
* One of the games on the Spanish GameShow ''Series/ElGranJuegoDeLaOca'' features each member of the dance squad wearing a Marilyn-style dress and a different colored garter on one leg. After all eight took turns dancing on a wind machine, the contestant then has to slide a colored garter up each girl's ''other'' leg that matched the one she was already wearing.
* ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'': Bud Bundy rigs an air vent to do this to his date at a school function. It works perfectly... except Marcy ends up the victim.
* ''Series/AreYouBeingServed''
** Shirley Brahms for three times (twice her undergarments can be seen) in episode "The Club". Mr. Lucas pushes a button on a wall and a draft from a floor vent causes her skirts (she's seen in two, different outfits when this occurs) to billow up due to her being near it as a joke, and put her white bustier/corset with matching knickers on display.
** The secretary Miss Belfridge tries to keep down her pink dress and avoid flashing her white panties when it flows up from an electric fan in "Monkey Business".
* Happens to Carrie in ''Series/SexAndTheCity'', where it's played for laughs. After being surprised by a gust of wind that lifts her skirt, she then [[WhenItRainsItPours gets drenched in a sudden downpour of rain]].
* Late night sketch show ''O.T.T.'' parodied a then-current hairspray advert where two men would watch passing girls and speculate on whether or not they were using the said hairspray formula. Only... [[Series/{{Tiswas}} Chris Tarrant]] and John Gorman were not speculating about the hairspray. As the girl approached, they speculated "Is she.. or isn't she?". Then a handy updraft would raise her skirt well above her waist. Revealing whether or not she was wearing knickers. One of the girls in the sequence ''wasn't'' - outrageous for British TV in the 1980's.

* The cover of the Music/{{Aerosmith}} album ''Just Push Play'' depicts a {{Fembot}} doing this.
* Music/TaylorSwift suffered this during a concert in 2011 when a [[http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/ourcountry/94419/taylor-swift-suffers-wardrobe-malfunction-on-tour-stop/ wind machine blew her skirt]] (the linked article called it a WardrobeMalfunction, which it clearly isn't).

[[folder:New Media]]
* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lP_BsSUXGx8 the latest Kelly video,]] one of the party members does this.
* Don't think that TheEighties did not have a couple these happen...
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdQDXs75Ulo Here]] at 04:00-- When you're dancing on the ceiling in a long evening dress, watch out when those wily A-C vents start a-blowin'!
** And though the late Jermaine Stewart had a couple of hits, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1trQsW0aGc this video]] features a blown skirt at 02:25.

* A woman is shown accidentally doing this on the slingshot bumpers of ''Pinball/FunHouse''.

[[folder:Print Media]]
* And one ''really'' strange FanArt of [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]], printed in ''Nintendo Power'' magazine. VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'s reaction in the drawing pretty much said it all.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* One of the best examples of this trope occurred at Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s ''Cyber Sunday'' pay-per-view (their final one by that name) in October 2008. Since the event took place just before Halloween, the Divas held their second annual Halloween Costume Contest. Candice Michelle (who had missed the previous year's contest due to a neck injury) was prominently featured as Marilyn Monroe from ''The Seven Year Itch'', complete with a blonde wig and a copy of the famous white halter dress. Not about to miss a golden opportunity, WWE had an air jet installed under the entry ramp to the arena to blast Candice's dress as she came down to the ring for the final judging - and the resulting PantyShot revealed that Candice was wearing ''the exact same cut of panties that Marilyn had had on in the 1955 film''. [[ShownTheirWork Candice obviously did her homework.]]
* And then there was the case of another Diva wearing the white halter dress. Wrestling/DGenerationX were scheduled to compete in a tag team match with Wrestling/VinceMcMahon one night in the summer of 2009, but Wrestling/ShawnMichaels and Wrestling/TripleH worried that Vince just wasn't "angry" enough to make an effective combatant. They spent the whole time before the match trying different strategies to goad him to violence, and one of them was sending the ''atrocious'' singing Diva Wrestling/JillianHall into his office wearing a ''Seven Year Itch'' costume and performing Marilyn's birthday song for [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy President Kennedy]] in her hideous voice (though Marilyn had not been dressed that way when she sang for Kennedy). Vince screamed "GET OUTTA MY OFFICE!" and became steadily more filled with rage as the night wore on, until he was finally ready to compete. (This incident culminated in a CrowningMomentOfFunny when commentator Wrestling/JerryLawler noted that Jillian looked a lot "like Monroe"....and then, a moment later, clarified that he meant ''[[UsefulNotes/JamesMonroe James]]''!)

[[folder:Video Games]]
* One of the characters from ''VideoGame/GateKeepers'' constantly gets her skirt lifted by the wind. In the last ep, she is really an AEGIS agent. [[SmallGirlBigGun And she has a bazooka]].
* This is one of Sue's events in ''VideoGame/MitsumeteKnight''. [[ShoutOut And to make it clear about the reference]], the CG obtained through this event is called "The Monroe Effect" in the game's CG Gallery, the Mitsumete Gallery. The event also has a nice RefugeInAudacity moment : when Sue asks the Asian (the player's avatar) if he saw anything, the best answer is to actually tell "They (the panties) were white". This will reassure her, saying that he hasn't seen them then, since he said the wrong colour.
* The tag-team arena in ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive 2'' allows for this with female fighters. It's more interesting than the combat, really.
* The scene is parodied in ''VideoGame/DiscworldII: Mortality Bytes''.
* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}''
** Playing a ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow'' game? Got the [[NinjaMaid Persephone]] [[PowerCopying soul power]]? Aim the vacuum at a [[CuteWitch Student Witch]] or even a [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Persephone herself]]...
** Returns in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin'', in which one of the two main characters, Charlotte to be precise, does the same when faced with a Persephone and a vacuum cleaner. The other main character, Jonathan, simply gets his coat stuck.
* Happens to [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Peach]] in the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' stage in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros: Melee]]''.
* Joe (from ''VideoGame/FatalFury'') tries to use his Tornado Punch on Mai (from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'') in ''VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2'' to [[PowerPerversionPotential get this effect]] in their special intro. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny It never goes far enough to pull it off so Mai's not fazed by it.]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* This happened to [[http://www.lfgcomic.com/page/180 Richard]] in ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup''.
* Happens regularly in ''Webcomic/TheDevilsPanties'' during strips where Jennie is at a convention. It involves her armed with an altered leaf blower and hunky guys in kilts. The author, Jennie Breeden, actually sets up gatherings of this nature at most conventions she attends, unless they get shut down by the cops.
* ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'', referenced [[http://bobadventures.comicgenesis.com/d/20070925.html by a robot who looks like a walking refrigerator]], sadly.

** Parodied in episode "Home Away from Homer", when Ned Flanders' mustache is blown around. (He's refusing to bow to pressure to shave it off.)
** Also happens to Groundskeeper Willie during Scotchtoberfest when Bart somehow manages to sneak balloons under his kilt, causing a female bystander to faint at [[GoingCommando the sight]]. Of course, it was all a trap laid by Principal Skinner, because there is no Scotchtoberfest.
** Perhaps most disturbingly of all, Mr. Burns is [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7vrlyuZZl1r95bpao1_500.jpg seen in this pose]] in the episode "Rosebud."
* Lois Lane in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', due to a wind blown up from Superman's hasty departure. She comments that she needs to start wearing pants, (and in a rare case of averting LimitedWardrobe, she does wear pants in the next episode).
* Spidey uses webs to build a slingshot to get to Oscorp faster and a young woman in a skirt happens to be in his wake resulting in this in ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'''s "Reaction".

* In the ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' episode "Recipe For Disaster", Velma and Daphne have to hold their skirts down when a high-powered floor dryer is activated.
* Rocko on ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' posed for a photo while doing this with his shirt. [[RuleOfFunny Like it makes a difference when he almost never wears pants.]]
* Leela in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Attack of the Killer App" during her humiliating montage after her singing boil is exposed online, she attempts to hide her appearance only for her dress to fly up and the paparazzi group take pictures.
** Parodied in episode "The Mutants Are Revolting" where a royalty girl is walking on the streets with the Mayor when an air conditioner, which had just lifted her dress a little too high, exuded an enormous quantity of sewage that sent her through the air.
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'' has Jay Sherman dressed up as Marilyn in a brief scene. It ends, appropriately enough, performing the obligatory maneuver as he stands over a fan.
* In one episode of "WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead" Butthead uses an air hose to blow up women's skirts so he can look at their panties.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* In [[ValuesDissonance less gender-sensitive times]], many American amusement parks featured hidden boardwalk vents for this very purpose.
** As shown in a NormanRockwell [[http://images.art.com/images/products/regular/13213000/13213392.jpg Saturday Evening Post cover]] from the 1920s.
** As [=YouTube=] will confirm, there are still quite a few carnivals out there with "skirt-blowing" funhouses. [[EuropeansAreKinky (They're really popular in Europe, apparently.)]]
** Considering that most modern women would wear jeans or shorts to a carnival, these funhouses are a bit of a relic now.
* One anecdote from the 1914 Christmas Truce tells the story of a Scottish regiment and a German regiment starting an impromptu football game... and then the wind comes along and reveals the Scots are GoingCommando... (the Scots won the game).
* At the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Kosovar actress Arta Dobroshi posed for a photocall to promote the upcoming ''Trois Mondes''. A very ill-timed gust of wind that struck just as she did a little pirouette sent her (normally quite modest) blue skirt flying a bit too high, just as all the cameras were going off. [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2149945/Cannes-2012-Arta-Dobroshi-Marilyn-Monroe-moment-skirt-flies-bare-cheeks-photocall.html Some publications]] couldn't resist the chance to use the term "Marilyn Monroe moment", and as if that wasn't bad enough, Miss Dobroshi [[VaporWear did not happen to be wearing panties]] at the time.
