[[caption-width-right:341:Protip: A girl should know your name ''before'' your "size".]]

Guy/girl enters an obscured area, sometimes in a hurry, and catches a girl/guy with her pants down, undressed or in the bath/shower.

Reactions will differ. She/he may chase him down and beat the tar out of him/her. An InnocentFanserviceGirl will be oblivious to the reaction she's getting, a ShamelessFanserviceGirl won't give a damn, and a ReluctantFanserviceGirl will be mortified. Others may acknowledge that it's all an awkward accident. Still others might [[ShowSomeLeg actively ]]''[[ShowSomeLeg flaunt ]]''[[ShowSomeLeg their assets]]. Whatever his/her reaction, the guy/girl may be asked to PleasePutSomeClothesOn.

For even more reaction, the naked character may OpenTheDoorAndSeeAllThePeople.

Compare AccidentalPervert and OutdoorBathPeeping. If PlayedForLaughs, it's because NakedPeopleAreFunny.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* In ''Manga/ElfenLied'', Kouta and Yuka find Nyuu naked on a beach.
* Happens repeatedly in ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi'' with the subversion that he ends up with pretty much the only girl he doesn't see naked... accidentally anyway.
* Reversed in ''LightNovel/{{Akikan}}''. After Melon appears for the first time, she sees Kakeru, who's just gotten out of the shower. Kakeru is ecstatic that there's a girl in his room for the first time ever, but she magically propels him into the wall. It takes a good few minutes before he's actually wearing something.
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', when Yoruichi first reveals her human form to Ichigo she's completely naked. Of course, being a CoolBigSis, she remains completely calm about it all, and teases ''him'' about his panic and embarrassment. His shrieking actually caused his wounds to reopen. A little bit later, Yoruichi repeats this performance, purely to mess with Ichigo.
* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', while it's not their first impression, the same episode that Lelouch and Kallen are properly introduced to each other, Kallen gets soaked with champagne. She takes a shower, he lends her his clothes, and she shows him her bare body, and the point of her knife. Ironically, she threatened - and nearly attempted to kill - him for something else, and her threat is what exposed her.
** In a sense, this happens between Suzaku and Kallen Kouzuki. Although they went to the same school, and unwittingly fought in Knightmares, Suzaku only saw Kallen's fake persona, that of an intelligent, quiet girl who misses a lot of classes due to an unspecified illness. When Suzaku finally sees the real Kallen, a loudmouthed tsundere terrorist, she's showering under a waterfall, naked, and her reaction upon seeing him is to grab her knife and charge. Of course, this time she's up against the one character in the series with inexplicably superhuman reflexes exceeding her own, so the knife doesn't help.
*** Might as well just refer to her as ''Serial Showerer Kallen''.
* November 11 in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' does this to Mao after both being taking to meet Amber. Mao is appropriately freaked out as November 11 sits in a chair with a smile on his face. Played with, though, in that Mao is ''[[IntellectualAnimal a cat]]''.
* Akira from ''Anime/EdenOfTheEast'' meets the heroine Saki while he is naked. In front of the White House, no less.
* Happens, censored, in the ''VideoGame/GalaxyAngel'' gameverse (with Ranpha in a towel) and the manga based upon it (Milfeulle, hanging upside down from a crane, and her skirt rips).
* Miroku's first encounter with Kagome in ''Manga/InuYasha'' was in a hot spring.
** Well, she did have a shard of the Shikon Jewel around her neck. And they're -- I mean, it's huge.
* Hazumu from ''Manga/KashimashiGirlMeetsGirl'' already knows Yasuna and Tomari, but first encounters them nude after [[GenderBender transforming into a girl]].
* As well as Keitaro and Naru (not to mention most of the other girls as well) from ''Manga/LoveHina''.
** An amusing subversion at the beginning of the DistantFinale involved a new would-be resident ending up in the same position as Keitaro and drawing similar reactions from the tenants who joined the kid in the on-site Hot Spring. Problem is that Maeda Ema was female as well.
** In the First Draft of the Manga, Naru and Mitsumi's characters were originally one character. What was to happen was that Naru would fall out of the hole in the floor/ceiling naked, hit her head, and [[EasyAmnesia lose her memory.]] However he changed it, presumably because he didn't know how to go from there.
* In ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', Ranka first meets Alto while he's in the middle of changing into a LatexSpaceSuit for a stunt show. Both sides react rather calmly to the situation until Ranka hits his BerserkButton by admitting that she first thought she was looking at a beautiful, topless ''[[DudeLooksLikeALady girl]]'' from behind.
* In the first chapter of ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'', Thoma finds Lily naked in an abandoned lab.
* In Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic, Aladdin and Morgianna first meet [[EstrogenBrigadeBait Sinbad,]] [[BigGood King of the Seven Seas,]] after he had been robbed blind of all but a single conveniently ([[FanService or not, depending on your tastes]]) fig leaf.
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', most points in which main hero Negi begins to get to know his students, it's usually while they're bathing: baka rangers in library island, [[ActionGirl Setsuna]] in Kyoto, etc. He usually gets away unharmed, though [[GroinAttack not in Setsuna's case]].
** Most of Negi and Asuna's early interactions are the result of Negi accidentally [[ClothingDamage erasing her clothes from existence.]]
* Lucia tends to walk in on Kaito in the shower more and more as ''Manga/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' progresses.
* In ''Manga/MidoriNoHibi'', when Midori first appears on Seiji's hand, she pops out of his sleeve and reveals everything, just about paralyzing him in shock. After Midori [[HandOrObjectUnderwear hastily covers up]], Seiji slips out, "WHY DOES MY HAND HAVE BREASTS!?"
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' plays with this trope multiple times: The first time Shinji actually interacts with Rei (meaning, she's not a vision out of the corner of his eye or a bandaged mess passing out in his arms), he arrives at her apartment when she's in a towel and [[AccidentalPervert falls on top of her]]; fortunately, since she's an over-the-top EmotionlessGirl, she just deadpans "Will you get off?". When Shinji meets Asuka, wind [[PantyShot blows her dress up]], and she slaps both him and Touji. There's also the [[SceneryCensor toothpick holder scene]] on his very first evening living with Misato. I guess this sort of stuff happens to you a lot when you're the show's designated ButtMonkey.
** In episode 8 Shinji's friend Touji did this intentionally. He had just dropped his hat and was retrieving it when Asuka, who they were meeting, appeared, and [[PantyShot had her skirt slightly blown up]]. She slaps all three of them and said that's the price for seeing her underwear. Touji responded by dropping his pants and underwear flashing her, saying she paid too much and this was her change.
*** And, of course, got slapped again.
*** [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Totally worth it.]]
*** Asuka got what was coming for her in ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion 2.0'' where Shinji's toothpick holder scene was repeated, this time with Asuka on the receiving end. And Shinji was present as well. Cue Asuka turning beet red, sprinting across the kitchen stark naked and kicking him in the face. And she had the guts to call him a pervert when SHE ran out of the bathroom naked!
** The AlternateUniverse manga ''Shinji Ikari Raising Project'' subverts the dynamic. Shinji walks into Rei in the shower, but Rei just smiles invitingly and ''then'' slaps Shinji, Very hard.
* Luffy and Boa Hancock do this on ''Manga/OnePiece'', although it's kind of a subversion because we don't really have any good [[NoHuggingNoKissing reason to think]] [[ChasteHero they'll get together]].
** Also because she was more angry that he saw [[spoiler: the tattoo on her back marking her as a former slave]] than that he saw her naked.
* [[GirlInABox Melfina]] is first encountered this way in ''Manga/OutlawStar''.
* Happens to Ranma and Akane ''twice'' in the first episode of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf '', first with Akane walking in on Ranma and then the other way around.
** In the first case, both manga and anime make a point of showing how Akane looks ''down'' to make sure that, yep, Ranma's a boy. In the second instance, when girl-Ranma walks in on her, the anime repeats the joke by having Akane look down at Ranma's breasts --which incenses her ''further'', because it just confirms what Ranma said moments earlier about being "better built". At least Akane was holding a towel to preserve some degree of modesty, but now she knows exactly what ''both'' sides of Ranma look like naked.
** Much later on, the scene is [[ContinuityNod mirrored]] with Shinnosuke, an [[EasyAmnesia extremely forgetful boy]] who draws an outdoors bath for Akane... then promptly forgets all about her (but not about drawing the bath). He heads for the bath (naked, natch) and runs into Akane just as she's climbing out. She slaps him out of reflex, of course, but more importantly, his nakedness reveals the [[ScarsAreForever scar on his back]], confirming his identity as the boy who saved her life many years ago. It's also significant in that Shinnosuke was Ranma's one and only real rival for Akane's affections.
** And the original instance is repeated [[ContinuityNod almost verbatim]] at the end the manga, as[[spoiler: an]] Akane [[spoiler:impersonator]] walks in on Ranma at the bath, in the exact same pose, no less. He certainly didn't expect what [[TheGlomp came afterward]], though...
* ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf'': Horo is quite naked when she first meets Lawrence and remains thus during most of the first episode.
* In ''Anime/StellaJogakuinKoutoukaC3Bu'', the first time Yura (and the audience) meet [[TheAce Sonora]], she's just come out of the shower and is wearing nothing but a towel. The scene is then practically repeated in a later episode.
* ''Manga/TenjhoTenge'' has a relationship like this when the hero is sent flying through the air to land on a girl as she was exiting the bath. Despite the fact that he literally crashed through the roof, she takes this as a sign that [[AccidentalMarriage they are married]]...
* In ''Manga/{{Tokko}}'', Ranmaru meets Sakura in BadDreams prior to meeting her in person. She's topless in the dreams for some reason.
* ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' does this with Lala and Rito's first meeting, when she appears naked in front of him while he's taking a bath in an explosion of water. The scene is made even funnier when he realizes that there's now a naked girl standing in front of him when he notices he's holding something soft and squishy.
* ''Anime/ThisUglyYetBeautifulWorld'' takes this trope literally. Hikari is completely naked upon meeting Takeru.
** Also, while it's slightly different since they already know each other, the first time the viewers see Takeru's cousin Mari, she is in the process of putting on her bra.
* Shunsuke first meets Manga/{{Yuria|100Shiki}} in an alley wearing nothing but an overcoat ... and about to be taken advantage of by a stray dog.
* When [[NaiveNewcomer Aoki Daisuke]] first walks into the classroom to meet his students in ''Kodomo no Jikan'', the first thing he spots is [[FilleFatale Rin]] wearing [[PantyShot nothing but her underwear]].
* Although both clothed when they first meet, during their first meeting [[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex Index]] quickly challenges Touma's [[AntiMagic right hand]] against her magically enhanced robes. They're [[CrowningMomentOfFunny ripped to shreds]] and the poor girl is left without a stitch of clothing on her.
** And, from that point on, her (now {{depower}}ed) robes have to be kept together with ''safety pins'', [[spoiler:which actually turn out to be quite useful in a later battle with a summoned [[DishingOutDirt golem]].]]
* Lampshaded / parodied in the first episode of ''Manga/DaaDaaDaa''. GenreSavvy Miyu worries constantly that she's going to be in this situation somehow. Guess what happens.
* In ''LightNovel/{{Corsair}}'', when Mansour sees Aura for the first time during a rescue mission, she immediately throws off her cumbersome dress and starts running around in what is basically her underwear. He is rather shocked.
* In ''Manga/UmiNoMisaki,'' Nagi first sees Karin through the window while she's changing with the curtains open. She's just a bit too used to having an empty house in front of her, as Rinne points out.
* ''Manga/SoulEater'' first meets HotWitch CatGirl [[MsFanservice Blair]] while the latter is taking a bath.
* Considering the nature of ''Manga/MaicchinguMachikoSensei'', it's not surprising that this has happened to her more than once. One time, she was in the shower and a [[UnfortunateImplications visiting tribal leader caught a glimpse of her and had to be physically removed]]. Another time, a man mistakenly entered her home and caught her in the tub.
* In the spinoff manga "Anime/EurekaSeven: Gravity Boys and Lifting Girl", the main character Sumner witnesses a lifting competition, a sport in universe which is dominated by men and boys. Seeing the best boarder out there perform beyond expectations, Sumner rushes to the locker room to meet said lifter, only to catch a side view of a woman undressing from the clothes. She is notably pissed [[spoiler: and the character turns out to be Ruri, the heroine, who cross-dresses in order to get into lifting competitions.]]
* In ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', Tohru first encounters Isuzu in animal form, and when she reverts to human, she's naked. Due to Isuzu being exceptionally pretty (Tohru thought she has a supermodel body), it troubles Tohru even more than with boys.
** [[RunningGag Tohru has seen most of the cursed Sohma members being naked, anyway]].
* In ''Manga/GirlsBravo'', Yukinari finds a naked Miharu sleeping in her bed.
* In ''VisualNovel/HoshizoraEKakaruHashi'', Kazuma takes a bath in the first episode, and walks into the men's side of the bathhouse when he spots Tsumugi cleaning it. He tries to leave immediately, but trips in the process, and Senka, the owner of the Yorozuyo inn, opens the door after hearing him scream, and gets a good look at his naked body as well. In the next scene Kazuma sulks and cries privately, claiming he can't be married now.
* When Kaname first meets Tessa in ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', she's just stepped out of Sousuke's shower, wearing only a towel. This causes Kaname to think that Sousuke's been skipping out on their study sessions to make out with his girlfriend (a mistake Tessa is happy to leave uncorrected).
* In ''Manga/UQHolder'', Touta meets Kuromaru while bathing under a waterfall that they both had assumed was isolated. Despite this trope, Touta still isn't sure whether Kuromaru is [[AmbiguousGender a boy or a girl.]]
* ''Anime/SamuraiFlamenco'' has a rare male-male example. Beat cop Goto first met wannabe superhero Masayoshi when the latter was buck-naked in an alleyway (his suit had been ripped).
* In ''Manga/RisingXRydeen'' Takara's first meeting with Ruri is him accidentally walking in on her changing clothes in her dressing room after her concert. At first it looks like she's going to hurt him since she screams and grabs his arm before he tries to flee but it turns out she was just excited to see him
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Jon, a.k.a. Skeleton Man, was introduced to Tarot's mother this way in ''Comicbook/TarotWitchOfTheBlackRose''. Except that he was the naked one, not her. Not that he didn't see Tarot's mother naked later on, but that's what ''Tarot'' is all about.
* In the U.S. War Machine, a MarvelMAX version of Comicbook/WarMachine from ComicBook/IronMan. Jim Rhodes, the commander of the titular special operations unit, walks into a locker room looking for "Josephs," one of his new team members. It turns out Josephs' first name is Sheva and is an attractive and very well-endowed blonde. She is completely nude when Jim walks in, and she tells him to "close the door." He stares at her, wide eyed and complies. She then glares at him and says, "From the outside!"
* In ''ComicBook/{{Artesia}}'', Queen Artesia of Dara Dess meets the Duchess Ilyana of Har Misal in the nude. While having sex with both of her sons, her nephew, and another nobleman. Artesia is unruffled - the Duchess is able to keep a straight face due to her upbringing.
* Franchise/GreenLantern Kyle Rayner first meets his future girlfriend Jade when she shows up at his apartment hoping to stay with him, in spite of having never met or spoken to him. He wasn't home, so naturally she decides to break in to use the shower.
* In ComicBook/LesLegendaires: {{Origin|sEpisode}}e, [[TheHero Danael]] first met [[TheChick Jadina]] when she was bathing in a lake, having fallen near due to his ride's stupidity. Jadina was less than understanding and reacted by ''shooting a magic blast at him''. Amusingly enough, despite this violent first impression, they had one of the least violent relationship in the main serie.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fanfic]]
* Happened to Changeling and Fauna in ''Roleplay/DCNation''. Hades had forced the Titans to compete in the nude, then sent a zombie horde after he proved a sore loser. Fauna hid among the spectators, but her clothing came off when she changed shape and joined the battle. [[http://community.livejournal.com/jla_watchtower/424328.html?thread=8651912#t8651912 When they'd beaten back their attackers, they introduced themselves to one another, still not wearing a stitch]]. They started dating as soon as they got back to San Francisco.
* Happens a lot in ''HogwartsExposed'', with the twist that the characters who are naked are nudists and not at all embarrassed to be seen like that - [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn but the other side usually is]].
* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfiction ''Fanfic/{{Jericho}}'', it is exaggerated, but justified. Jericho meets '''every''' Equestrian as they are naked. The thing is, Equestrians don't usually wear clothes, but Jericho is from a nation where ponies do wear clothing. HilarityEnsues.
--> His first reaction into walking into a tavern and seeing everypony naked? "This is a whorehouse!"
--> Then, in a monolog: "Does this mean that the Princesses will also be naked? Oh, Father above, that's gonna be fun. Why, hello there, so-called deities of sun and moon. No, I swear I wasn't leering creepily at your haunches. I can't even say I know what 'leering' means. Is it a type of frog?"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* In ''Film/TheElephantMan'', a nurse brings John some food and drops it with a scream when she sees him. From the way John hastily tries to cover himself with a sheet, it wasn't only his face she saw.
* In ''Film/FlyAwayHome'', Creator/AnnaPaquin's character accidentally meets one of her dad's friends this way after she gets some soap in her eyes and flees the shower. It's a real {{squick}} moment when you remember that ''she's only 12'', and she's understandably pissed off that it happened in the first place.
* In ''Film/MoonZeroTwo,'' Clementine Taplin meets Bill Kemp this way.
* In ''Doc Hollywood'', Julie Warner's character is first seen by Creator/MichaelJFox when she emerges from a lake where she's been skinny-dipping. When Michael's character says it's alright since he's a doctor, she retorts "then it's nothing you haven't seen before."
* Inverted in ''The Matchmaker.'' Creator/JaneaneGarofalo's character first meets her love interest when she enters the (shared) bathroom and he's in the bathtub.
* In ''Film/{{Dave}}'' the first time Dave meets the first lady he's in the shower. She thinks she's simply seeing her husband.
* In ''Film/{{Roxanne}}'' Creator/SteveMartin's character meets the title character (Daryl Hannah) when she's locked herself out of her house [[NakedPeopleTrappedOutside naked]].
* In ''Film/{{Wimbledon}}'', Paul Bethany's character walks into what he thinks is his hotel room only to find Creator/KirstenDunst's character taking a shower. However she takes it rather calmly and points him towards the exit.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* In Terry Brooks ''[[Literature/MagicKingdomOfLandover Magic Kingdom for Sale - SOLD!]]'', Ben Holiday first encounters his future wife, Willow, while she is naked and bathing. At least he has the decency to be somewhat put off by her opening line, "I am for you!", brought on because she has a prophecy that says [[BecauseDestinySaysSo she'll meet her true love this way]].
* Literature/JamesBond does this to Honeychile Rider in Ian Fleming's novel ''Literature/DrNo''. (In the movie, where she was renamed to ''Honey'' Rider, she was given a bikini.)
* Creator/GarthNix's ''Literature/OldKingdom'' series:
** In ''Literature/{{Sabriel}}'', Sabriel encounters Touchstone trapped in the figurehead of a ship... [[FanService naked]]. As Sabriel notes that Touchstone is circumcised, it's apparently a very detailed carving.
** This also happens to Lirael when she first meets Nicholas, as Nicholas feels no shame in dropping his drawers before an [[VoluntaryShapeshifting owl]].
* In Creator/TamoraPierce's ''[[Literature/TortallUniverse Wild Magic]]'', Numair is naked when first properly introduced to Daine, [[spoiler: having been shapeshifted into a hawk before]].
* In ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'', Zane met Luna, the love of his life, for the first time when her father used a summoning spell to fetch her, and ended up plucking her out of the shower.
* In ''Literature/EndersGame'' it's implied that Ender met Petra that way. Though apparently she looked just like a boy. Huh.
** Rose De Nose is also introduced wearing only his desk. Then he projects oversized genitals on it. Ew.
* In ''Literature/TheTimeTravelersWife'', the titular time-traveler [[CantTakeAnythingWithYou can not take his clothes when he time travels involuntarly.]] So the first time his future wife in the past (um, wife in the present- [[YourHeadAsplode it's complicated]]) meets him. he is naked. And up until ''he'' meets ''her'' for the first time in the present, he's naked every time he meets her.
* The Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration novel ''Imzadi'' tells how Riker and Troi first met - at a Betazoid wedding, where everyone was naked (including Riker). Troi was the maid of honor and for Riker, it was lust at first sight!
* A variation of this occurs in ''Literature/FightClub''. {{The Na|meless}}rrator first meets Tyler when the latter is naked on the beach making a giant hand. The variation, of course is [[spoiler: the Narrator and Tyler are the same person, so their meeting was just a delusion.]]
* In ''FaerieWars'', Henry first sees Holly Blue naked. Not that she minds much. At the end, she asks him whether he thinks she's pretty.
* In ''Literature/WarOfTheDreaming'' by Creator/JohnCWright, Raven first meets his wife when she decides to go running naked through the woods ([[CloudCuckooLander she's trying to remember how to fly]]).
* In ''Echo'', a story by J. Nagibin, the protagonist first sees Vika when she is naked - and [[AccidentalPervert he is sitting on her panties]]. The girl is reasonably angry.
* In the ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' novel "The Black Wing" [[VillainProtagonist the black dragon Khisanth]] is naked [[VoluntaryShapeshifting when she first takes human form]] and when she is found by some actual humans [[BadLiar she is forced to come up with a lie on the spot, telling them that bandits stole her clothes.]] [[HilarityEnsues The humans draw their own conclusions on what happened and insist on protecting the poor dear.]]
* Combined with FullyClothedNudity in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice''. Jerin is absolutely ''mortified'' to be in nothing but a thin nightshirt when he meets the Princess Ren, who's in something similar. [[EatingTheEyeCandy She is intrigued]].
* In Creator/MichaelChabon's ''Literature/TheAmazingAdventuresOfKavalierAndClay'', the protagonist, Joe Kavalier, first meets his love interest, Rosa Luxemburg Saks, when he has to get into his friend's locked apartment by swinging up the fire escape, and ends up walking in on her napping on the couch completely naked. Soon after, his friend pays him ten dollars to draw her naked from memory (the fact that he remembers her vividly enough to do a realistic sketch is a pretty good clue that he'll end up falling for her).
* ''Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt'' has a few.
** In "Betvingade", Illiana is naked when she first meets Markus. She was abducted and taken to him while taking a bath!
** In "De skandalösa", Gabriel is naked when he first meets Magdalena. She had almost walked in on him while having sex with his mistress.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* This is how we meet the eponymous Series/{{Andromeda}} in her android form. That, and kicking some serious ass.
* ''Series/DoctorWho''
** Occurs in the episode "Blink" as Larry Nightingale's introduction to Sally Sparrow. (He's drunk, which might be an excuse for his inadvertent pantslessness. And he barely remembers it the next day.)
** In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E11TheLodger The Lodger]]", one character first meets the Doctor when he's just gotten out of [[ShowerScene the shower]] and is wearing nothing but a towel. What with Eleven being pure MrFanservice, it's played for as much {{Fanservice}} (and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarity]]) as possible.
* Used in a flashback episode of ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'' before the main couple got married. After delivering her futon and (mercilessly) finally asking Debra out, Ray leaves her apartment now believing himself to have left the greatest impression, and being 'The Man'. He re-enters to drop something off, only to barge in on her naked, getting ready for a shower. The rest of the episode involves him worrying about this to his brother, believing himself now to be the AccidentalPervert.
--> '''Debra''': Why did you open the door?
--> '''Ray''': You said come in-
--> '''Debra''': I said ''coming''
--> '''Ray''': Well it sounded a lot like ''come in''!
* This is River's introduction to the audience and the crew in ''Series/{{Firefly}}''. Also the [[FullFrontalAssault screaming and the craziness.]]
** No one really makes a huge deal of this, probably because of all the screaming and craziness. Also, River isn't a love interest for anyone else on the show, so that common factor is also averted.
*** Also, Mal's first assumption is that Simon's transporting River as a sex slave, so he's more pissed off than anything.
** Also, technically, [[CoitusUninterruptus Kaylee's introduction to Mal]].
* There is a character in ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' which Rory meets at college that is known only as Naked Guy for a few episodes after she finds him naked in the hallway following a party. Later there are some romantic episodes between them.
* Not the ''first'' impression, but pretty close. In the first season of ''McLeodsDaughters'', Nick walks into the bathroom while Tess is dressing. She covers herself with a towel, but doesn't realise until he leaves that he could see her rear in the mirror.
* Happens in ''{{Seacht}}'' with Linda and Joanne, Joanne in a towel and Linda being a LipstickLesbian. Oh, and they end up sharing a room.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}''
** The main character's naked when he meets Lois Lane. And then [[NotHimself he tells her he's Kal-El of the planet Krypton]]. Didn't go over well.
** The fake Kara was also naked when she met Clark.
* This is how [[FunnyForeigner Fez]] met Donna in ''Series/That70sShow''. More exactly, he and [[DeadpanSnarker Hyde]] went into her room when she was changing her shirt and accidentally flashed them.
--> '''Fez''' (to Donna, in another episode): How about the time I met you? ''Completely''?
* In ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', Irene Adler does this ''deliberately'' when meeting Sherlock and John for the first time. It [[DistractedByTheSexy throws off John completely]], but more importantly, it flummoxes [[SherlockScan Sherlock's scan]] by giving him nothing to read. [[spoiler: Though he still notices her measurements and deduces that this is the combination to her safe.]]
** You'd think the mere fact she was naked would've told him a couple of things - like that she was aware of his methods and had something to hide from him.
* On the makeup F/X game show ''Face Off'', all body-painting competitions begin with the contestants meeting the nude models they'll be working with. The models always walk on-stage in the buff to begin with, although they put on robes for the interlude when the contestants are deciding how to paint them.
* On ''Series/TheBill'', Luke Ashton is splashed with mud on his first day back at Sun Hill and decides to sneak in a quick shower before reporting to his new superior officer. Said officer DS Craig Gilmore loses patience with Luke's tardiness and comes looking for him. This is the beginning of their [[WillTheyOrWontThey Will They Or Won't They]] situation.
* On the survival show ''Naked And Afraid'' (which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin) the male and female teammates always strip bare before they meet one another for the first time.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mythology and Religion]]
* Anyone wondering whether this is OlderThanTheyThink need only think of the fate of Actaeon after he interrupted Artemis while she was bathing (she wasn't so harsh on [[GenderBender Siproites]]). Or Tiresias, when he caught Athena bathing, though he only lost his eyesight. These particular Greek myths are OlderThanFeudalism.
* David seeing Bathsheba bathing in Literature/TheBible. (Media frequently portray Bathsheba as [[TheVamp trying to catch David's eye]]. However, this is not supported in the text.) David compounded his sins with the UriahGambit. God's punishment was to avert InfantImmortality ''hard'' with their baby's death.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIII'', Ryu first meets [[CoolBigSis Deis]] when the magic pyramid seal on her is released and she's [[NakedOnArrival stark naked]]. Ryu turns beet red and looks away, but she ends up standing ''right in front of him'' to talk to him, and is completely oblivious to his discomfort. Later, it's made rather obvious that he developed a little crush on her because of that.
** Gender-reversed in ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV''. When Ryu first appears, he's completely nude, and Nina is right in front of him. Fortunately, a merchant who had fled from the monster that preceded Ryu's appearance left some clothes in a chest, which Nina quickly asks him to wear.
* The Exile's introduction to Atton Rand in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic 2'' is him/her walking into Atton's cell in his/her underwear. Atton will continue to rag on the Exile about this until he/she finds some decent clothes.
* Near the start of ''VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue'' Lucia arrives in the Blue Spire several seconds before her clothes materialize, rather surprising Hiro. She's an EmotionlessGirl too fixated on her mission to care.
** It's revisited ''twice'' in the same game. The first time is an inversion of the trope, with Lucia walking in on the game's protagonist Hiro in a public bath. Since she [[NoSocialSkills lacks social skills]], she doesn't see the harm in bathing on the men's side of the bath and just wants to be with her friends. Hiro's NonHumanSidekick Ruby prevents him from seeing any naughty bits initially by blocking his view, then by clawing his face to a bloody mess. The second instance has Hiro walking in on Lucia bathing along, but by this point in the adventure, she has actually become human enough to be genuinely (and very loudly) embarrassed about the whole thing.
*** Oddly enough, Hiro drops in (literally, as it turns out) on Lucia once more in the game (and, surprise surprise, no clothes present) [[spoiler: at the very end of the game in her sanctuary on the Blue Star]]. This time, she doesn't seem to mind and is, in fact, overjoyed to see him.
* In ''[[VideoGame/MaxPayne Max Payne 2]]'' after initially seeing Mona Sax only for a few seconds and thus learning that despite the events from the previous game she is still alive, Max decides to meet her later on. When he finally finds her in her secret hideout she is taking a shower. She is rather calm about this, which enforces her FemmeFatale image and asks Max for a towel.
* [[GeniusBruiser Oleg]] is introduced this way in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird''.
* In ''VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry'', Kat first meets Dante when she knocks on his trailer door and he answers it naked (having just woken up and not bothering to get dressed). Neither of them shows much reaction to his nudity.
* ''VideoGame/EarnestEvans'': Earnest first finds Annet naked on a sacrificial altar, before rescuing her (and giving her his jacket) ... but only in the Japanese Sega CD version, as the American Genesis version [[NoExportForYou was missing all of the cutscenes]].

* In ''Webcomic/PokemonX'', the main character Brendan meets May by walking in on her in the midst of changing, naked from the waist up, resulting in a love/hate relationship.
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' does this in the aptly-named "Game Called on Account of Naked Chick."
* In ''Webcomic/{{Outsider}}'', this happens to the main character: Ensign Alexander Jardin. [[spoiler:After the destruction of his ship by an unknown enemy,]] Jardin wakes up naked and on a medical gurney, with two of the other main characters in the room. [[spoiler:As it turns out, he's on board the Loroi warship ''Tempest'', just as Fireblade starts the ''mind rape''. But waking up only postpones the inevitable.]]

* On ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark,'' the first time Token actually met the new girl, Nicole, was when she came into the boy's locker room as he was getting out of the shower. He was wearing a ModestyTowel, but the two were both embarrassed anyway. (Incidentally, the whole thing was a plot by [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Cartman]] to trick them into becoming a TokenMinorityCouple.)
* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', Lemongrab first meets his [[HoYay "companion"]], Lemongrab 2, when [=LG2=] walks into the room naked. Lemongrab is confused at first, then intrigued. He walks up to Lemongrab 2 and inspects him, then pokes him repeatedly. Lemongrab 2 responds by poking Lemongrab back. After that, they smile and [[AmbiguouslyGay nuzzle their faces together lovingly]]. Two episodes after that, the two Lemongrabs are shown to have had children together.

* Creator/CindyCrawford tells a ''Magazine/{{Playboy}}'' interviewer about an incident involving a Pepsi representative when Pepsi flew her down to Barbados for an international meeting:
-->'''Crawford:''' One day my girlfriend and her boyfriend and I were sunbathing topless because that's Barbados - you can wear nothing if you want. And the Pepsi guy and my agent to meet us for lunch. I wondered should I put on my top because I have a business relationship with him? I didn't want him to get offended because the rest had seen me with my top off. Meanwhile, a she's saying to my agent [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn "I hope she puts on her top."]] He wasn't even being a shmuck, like wanting to see. He wanted to keep our relationship professional.
-->'''Playboy:''' Did you or didn't you?
-->'''Crawford:''' I left it off and it was fine with everyone.
** For the record, [[http://www.barbados.org/beaches.htm it's against the law in Barbados]] whether you look like Cindy Crawford or Dorota from ''Literature/GossipGirl''. Incidentally, ''Magazine/{{Playboy}}'' and its ilk have been banned from the island since 1990 (curiously, this didn't happen until [[UnfortunateImplications ones with nude men began being sold there]]).
* The first time Creator/JohnBarrowman met his partner Scott was at one of his stage performances. Not only was he naked on stage as soon as the curtain opened, but Scott also got an eyeful when escorted to the dressing room of Barrowman, who was still in (lack of) costume.
* When UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill was visiting Washington D.C. during World War II, UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt wheeled into his room for a chat, only to discover Churchill lounging around naked (as he often did at home). "Great Britain has nothing to hide from the United States," Churchill told him.
** Winston suffered from acutely sensitive skin, silk undies helped but not enough which probably explains this habit of his.
* Sportscaster Erin Andrews was propelled to fame when a [[ThePeepingTom a peephole video]] that shows her ritual of ironing and curling her hair in the nude along with her casual nudity lifestyle that her [[StalkerWithACrush stalker]] secretly shot through peepholes in her hotel rooms at the Nashville Marriot at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN and Radisson Hotel in Milwaukee, WI went viral.
