->''"I'm only really here to keep the fangirls interested."''

The [[SpearCounterpart brother]] of [[MsFanservice his counterpart]], Mr. Fanservice provides similar eye candy for women. [[EstrogenBrigade It can be an effective way to bring in female viewers, even in a series directed towards males]].

In order for a guy to qualify as Mr Fanservice, just being attractive isn't enough. He needs to be shown in scenes intended as fanservice for [[EstrogenBrigade girls]] (and [[QueerAsTropes certain]] [[BiTheWay guys]]). He can have anything between muscular limbs, broad shoulders and/or sculpted abs (between six-packs and eight-packs). Said muscles can be either lean or chiseled; as long as you can see them, they count. He may also have long hair though it's not required.

He needs to be subjected to ''at least'' one ShirtlessScene, or he can take it a step further by deciding to [[WalkingShirtlessScene forgo a shirt altogether]]. In the BeachEpisode his choice of swimwear is likely to be a speedo. Just like his aforementioned counterpart, he can wear tight clothing, which shows off his body without baring skin. He can pull off a male version of BareYourMidriff. He can wear anything (or [[CensorSteam nothing]], that works too), as long as these clothes accentuate or reveal his muscles. If he wears some sort of [[ManInAKilt skirt like garment]] the female fans will be prone to ask if he wears anything [[PantyShot underneath it]]. He can also [[GenderFlipped gender flip]] the ReluctantFanserviceGirl, ShamelessFanserviceGirl and InnocentFanserviceGirl tropes.

An especially easy way to show off his figure would be through the WorkoutFanservice, where he flexes his muscles via exercising. HotMenAtWork is when the Mr Fanservice is, well, [[CaptainObvious at work]], but distinctly lacking a shirt, regardless of health and safety issues. Bonus points if he's TheCharmer.

It should be noted that the trope is not necessarily restricted to {{Hunk}} type characters either. {{Bishonen}} and [[PrettyBoy pretty boys]] can easily qualify as well, and are often intended as fanservice too (particularly in manga and anime, where they are rather common and video games, where they are not as common [[FinalFantasy with]] [[FireEmblem some]] [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} notable]] [[TheLegendOfZelda exceptions]]). A rarer type of the pretty boy subseries is the Biseinen who has a pretty face and chiseled muscles rather than being willowy. Biseinen are often [[TheStoic unemotional]] but can still appear in [[TheComicallySerious comedic situations]] which can overlap with the genderflipped ReluctantFanserviceGirl.
