In a lot of animated shows and comic books, characters that are supposed to have particularly "tight" bodies will be depicted as having a constant high-gloss on their exposed skin, even when they're supposed to be completely dry. This could be to emphasize their muscle tone, or to draw more attention to a woman's bosom or [[ShesGotLegs legs]]. If done well, it will give the impression of youthful elasticity and sturdiness. If overdone, it might lead to characters looking more like [[UncannyValley inflatable dolls]], which might or might not be the [[FanService the desired effect]].

!!Examples:

* ''IkkiTousen''
* ''RioRainbowGate''
* ''QueensBlade''
* ''Videogame/DeadOrAlive''
* Most [[{{DC Comics}} DC]] and {{Marvel}} characters have undergone this, depending on the artist. Especially the female ones.
* ''Manga/{{Saki}}''
* Parodied in ''Anime/ExcelSaga'', where in an episode parodying fanservice anime they turn up the contrast and brightness of the show to achieve this effect.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0736.html parodied this]] in the strip introducing the gladiators.
-->"You will remain stripped to the waist with your muscles oiled at all times, for no apparent purpose. See the oil steward if your skin becomes dry for any reason."
* Many western comics during the DarkAge of Comics utilized or imitated the style of the Liquid! coloring studio, which emphasized heavy use of bright, primary colors and more light sources than a Thomas Kinkade painting.
* MasamuneShirow (example pictured at right) became the absolute master of this trope when he started drawing highlights on his characters with Color Dodge layers in Photoshop.
* The works of Satoshi Urushihara.
* The works of {{DP Ragan}}, particularly due to his tendency to go for DressedAllInRubber as well.
* In RealLife, celebrities often rub oil into their skin to achieve this look.
