->''"Yeah, [[{{GIRL}} of course I'm a chick]]. If I'm gonna be staring at an ass in tights all day, it might as well be a nice ass!"''
-->-- '''Francis''', ''Webcomic/{{PvP}}'', [[http://www.pvponline.com/comic/2004/06/01/tue-jun-01 June 1st, 2004.]]

A standard player character for a ThirdPersonShooter or modern 3D {{platformer}}. An implausibly curvy, twenty-something woman in a {{Stripperiffic}} outfit, who obeys the commands of the fellow behind the controller.

A quick look at the demographics of the game industry sheds some light on this. Since MostGamersAreMale, Toby Gard (the creator of [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]]) decided that if the game was going to show the back end of a character for hour upon hour, [[MaleGaze then it may as well be the back end of a pretty girl.]] Some straight women also enjoy these characters as they have [[AudienceSurrogate an attractive avatar to identify with]], [[ActionGirl while kicking ass]].

Games with main characters of this type will often incorporate [[SheFu jumping and flipping acrobatics]], LeParkour, and possibly JigglePhysics. This can be somewhat pointless, as the parts that jiggle are usually not visible in the default camera view.

Note that not every female main character in a third-person game meets the criteria. Blatant exploitation in clothing, animation, and marketing is key.

As the page quote shows, it's a common excuse for [[CrossPlaying males playing online with a female avatar]].

Note also that a Third Person Seductress does not guarantee the success of a game; many of the examples below sold poorly and are the [[IncrediblyLamePun butt]] of much snark concerning their protagonists when it's perceived that the developers were [[SexSells banking on sex appeal to sell their product]]. Characters of this nature in multiplayer games can also become unpopular due to perceptions that unskilled players pick them for fanservice, rather than because they can play them effectively.



[[folder: Action Adventure ]]

* Lara Croft of ''VideoGame/TombRaider'', and all its sequels, is the TropeCodifier with her infamous bustline. This was [[ExaggeratedTrope played up more and more]] with each sequel until the ContinuityReboot, in which her proportions took a downgrade to "normal but athletic." And while the reboot makes her proportions more sane, her ''clothes'' are still oftentimes overly skimpy.\\\
However, she only kept those proportions for two games in the new series. As soon as ''VideoGame/TombRaiderUnderworld'' came out, whilst she was still fairly realistic, her boobs had definitely gone up a few inches. Which seems odd considering it's supposed to take place immediately after Tomb Raider Legend, which first introduced her more modest figure.\\\
The second reboot which turns the series into survival-adventure, once again puts her back to a more realistic set. Creator/ConanOBrien's [[http://teamcoco.com/video/clueless-gamer-conan-obrien-reviews-tomb-raider "review" of the second reboot]] hangs a a massive Lampshade on her ThirdPersonSeductress qualities.
* ''VideoGame/FearEffect'' and its prequel. Also one of the first examples of lesbians in video games.
* Rynn from ''VideoGame/{{Drakan}}'' and ''Drakan: Gate of the Ancients'', but only in certain outfits. Likewise for many other third-person adventure games in this vein.
* Ayumi in ''VideoGame/XBlades''.
* The titular character of ''VideoGame/KameoElementsOfPower''. The "Hover" ability serves two functions: 1) traveling quickly over small obstacles, and 2) upskirt shots galore.
* Like many MMORPG, many guys like to choose a female as their hunter in ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter''. It helps that there are so many armor outfits in this game and that females hunters just look so much more sexy in many of them.
* As pretty much every female in ''VideoGame/{{Messiah}}'' is more or less {{Stripperiffic}}, they become this when you [[BodySnatcher possess them]].


[[folder: Action Game ]]

* ''Kurenai'' (''VideoGame/RedNinjaEndOfHonor'' in EU/US releases) has the eponymous character walking around in a red kimono with nothing else underneath but a black [[ThongOfShielding thong]]. Justified in that she can deliberately use this to charm the guards, but with only a 50% chance of success.
* [[MsFanservice Rachel]] from ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Sigma''. You can even change her hairstyle to your liking, because we all know such things are important when slaughtering enemies with a giant axe.


[[folder: Beat Em Up ]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' takes this to its logical conclusion; her magical hair forms her costume, and is used for her attacks. This means that parts of her clothing disappear during attacks, and her finishing moves render her entirely naked aside from just enough coverage to keep it from getting an AO rating. The pure absurdity of the sex appeal on display in the trailers alone - never mind the final product - was almost certainly intentional on the part of the development team, many of whom are Clover refugees. Knowing their previous works[[note]]''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', ''VideoGame/GodHand'', ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'', ''VideoGame/MadWorld''[[/note]], they seem quite happy keeping a self-mocking sense of humor throughout.
* Juliet Starling from ''VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw'' fits this trope like a glove, taking it to the point of parody, especially when considering that it is very easy to get an upskirt during her fighting, but attempting to move the camera low enough to see her panties while standing around gives you a Pervert Achievement.
* Creator/{{Vanillaware}}'s [[DoingItForTheArt beautifully-designed]] BeatEmUp RPG ''VideoGame/DragonsCrown'' includes the [[BuxomIsBetter busty]] and [[ShesGotLegs leggy]] Sorceress and [[ChainmailBikini scantily-clad]] [[AmazonianBeauty yet very muscular]] Amazon as player characters, who exhibit Vanillaware founder George Kamitani's [[AuthorAppeal usual art style]] [[BestKnownForTheFanservice very readily]].


[[folder: Fighting Game ]]

* Many fighting games feature some variant on the trope, with the added bonus of being able to place certain characters in compromising positions, or listen in delight as they shriek and gasp upon being struck.
* ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' takes this to extremes. All the female characters are busty and JigglePhysics is very much in play. Most of their costumes are {{Stripperific}} to boot.
* ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soul Calibur]]'' has Ivy as their best known stripperific fighter, with her gigantic boobs and tight swimsuit-outfit. Newer installments of the series now included that every x percent of lost health results in the characters outfit/armor getting destroyed. Pretty much all female characters end up in very revealing outfits, though Ivy still [[UpToEleven takes the cake]].
* Well-endowed PageThreeStunna Maria Whittaker in a spangled bikini, in the old 8-bit game ''Barbarian 2''.
* The ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'' games tend to make female characters this, by the {{stripperiffic}} nature of their costumes. If you prefer the gents, the WalkingShirtlessScene is fairly common as well. (Kitana and Jade go so far as to [[BreakingTheFourthWall Break the Fourth Wall]] this way if they win a match without performing a Fatality, Kitana by laughing and winking at the player, and Jade by using her staff to ''pole dance'' and smile at the player seductively.)
* ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' brings FF's more... inventive female character designs into a more clear 3D perspective. Then there are the the DLC outfits, [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 Yuna's]] deserving special mention.
* ''Franchise/StreetFighter'': While most female characters fit this trope, there are a few standout examples.
** Chun-Li was the very first woman in a fighting game, so she has held this position by default. Her [[ShesGotLegs famous thighs]] are a massive draw for people who like that sort of thing, and in ''Videogame/StreetFighterV'' [[MsFanservice she is given FAR more costumes than any other character]], allowing players to pretty much play dress up in any way they prefer.
** Poison is considered one of the sexiest characters in both franchises of the shared ''Street Fighter''[=/=]''Videogame/FinalFight'' universe, both due to her [[TransgenderFetishization highly sexualized looks, behavior and moveset]] and because she's the only confirmed transfemale in that universe. So in addition to the people attracted to her sexually, she's also beloved by the trans community for being their only self-insert character.
** Menat became an instant sensation from ''the very day she was released'' in addition to being the main franchise's first character from Egypt, Menat has a very outgoing, bubbly and graceful demeanor. Players were ''instantly'' captivated by even her standard walking, sitting, and taunt animations, to say nothing of the [[FanservicePack extremely sexy]] costumes she has been given.


[[folder: First Person Shooter ]]

* The game ''VideoGame/JurassicParkTrespasser'' has an entirely DiegeticInterface. The player's health is depicted by [[IntimateMarks a tattoo on Anne's chest]]. So if you want to know how close you are to dying, prepare to see a lot cleavage.
* It's not uncommon to find ''Portal 2'' videos on Website/YouTube in third-person, presumably for this reason considering Chell becoming ProgressivelyPrettier. Also everyone of these videos has at least one comment that says "DAT ASS". [[VideoGamePerversityPotential Screw the third-person camera, just use portals creatively!]]


[[folder: Hack And Slash ]]

* ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors''[='=] Zhen Ji, ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors''[='=] Lady Noh. Diao Chan is somewhat a seductress but only when the pseudo-historical storyline calls for it.
** ''Dynasty Warriors 7'' takes this even further with Lianshi, whose skirt is so short, the player is given a shot of her underwear every time she moves. That she had one of the largest busts and revealing outfits in the series also helps.
* Nariko of ''VideoGame/HeavenlySword'' for the [=PS3=], with the usual perfect figure, long flowing red hair, armour that amounts to a two-piece, and acrobatic attacks that are shown in slow motion for good measure.
* [=YoRHa=] No. 2 Type B or simply "2B" in ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'' is a sexy RobotGirl who was intentionally designed with this trope in mind. She has a very voluptuous body, swings her hips while walking and there is an achievement for [[VideoGamePerversityPotential using the camera to look up]] under her DangerouslyShortSkirt, as well as the option to [[ClothingDamage self-destruct her dress]] using a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U33p10CdDYM buttom-prompt]]. Her sexiness is considered a [[MemeticMutation meme]] by its own right, having spawned so much 2B fan-art that the creator Yoko Taro not only acknowledged, but encouraged it.

[[folder: [=MMORPGs=] ]]

* There's a reason people assume any female night elf, blood elf, or draenei in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' is being [[{{GIRL}} played by a guy]]. ("[[FanNickname Cutefase]]" [[CuteMonsterGirl trolls]] aren't exempt, either.) Since patch 4.3, it's been ramped up with the availability of transmogrification, allowing the highest gear to look {{Stripperific}}.
** Same for [[CatGirl Mithra]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI''.
** Similarly a rule of thumb in the ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' franchise is that the odds of a female character really being a male is directly proportional to the character's breast size and amount of skin the costume reveals.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the webcomic PVP by Francis Ottoman: "If I've got to be staring at an ass all day, it might as well be one I like looking at."
** ''VideoGame/GuildWars''. Every female character is well endowed. Mesmers in their GorgeousPeriodDress tend to skirt the safe side of this trope's boundary, and the Monk, Warrior, and Ritualist all have their particular {{Stripperific}} sets, but the Paragon and Elementalist indulge in such attire as a matter of course-the Elementalist in particular begins play wearing a miniskirt, knee-high boots, and what can only be described as a long-sleeved bra. The vast majority of the Elementalist's later armor isn't much better, if at all.
* The Witch Elves in ''VideoGame/WarhammerOnline''. They start off in a bikini and work their way up to a ChainmailBikini, but wearing more than a square foot of clothing is apparently an [[ReligionOfEvil abomination unto Khaine]]. Just staying true to the TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} universe, of course.
** They at least ''try'' to justify it in-universe: they don't wear bulky, heavy armor because their fighting style is based on [[FragileSpeedster running and jumping around while stabbing things]]; the large amount of skin (along with spells/pheromones) can be [[DistractedByTheSexy disarming to their enemies]]; and finally the only reason their entire society is devoted to [[WarGod Khaine]] instead of [[SenseFreak Slaanesh]] is that Khaine is at least conducive to a well-functioning military. Not to mention the fact that they literally [[BloodBath bathe in blood]] as part of [[ImmortalityImmorality a magic ritual to maintain their youth]]. The more of it they can [[BloodSplatteredWarrior get on their bare flesh in battle]], the better. Of course, this is more "the creators explaining the solutions" rather than "the characters solving problems."
* Action-[=MMORPG=]'' VideoGame/{{Vindictus}}'' plays this completely straight and self-aware. Of the twelve character classes, 7 are female, all of whom wear skin-tight outfits or armor. Along with this, there are a few other indications that the devs deliberately ratcheted up the {{Fanservice}} levels:
** Character creation only allows two adjustments to physical appearance (aside from the usual hairstyle and eye colour) -- height and breast size. While breast size is kept within realistic bounds, the developers are very fond of their JigglePhysics; and exaggerated bouncing accompanies nearly every movement, regardless of how small the character's bust.
** Certain outfits emphasize or highlight female characters' breasts. Most notorious is the Homebound clothing set, which is designed to add at least 2 cups sizes to the characters' bust. On top of that, "underarmour" sets are [[RevenueEnhancingDevices available in the cash shop]] to replace the boring basic default set. These range from full-body outfits that resemble armoured motorcycle suits, to [[{{Stripperiffic}} barely anything at all]].
** Turned up another notch with mage character Evie. Her primary armor is magical and passive; with her clothing functioning primarily as StatSticks. Result: many cute female characters running around in their underwear.
** Further emphasized with certain higher-level missions, which [[SelfImposedChallenge offer bonuses]] for completing the mission ''in your underwear''.
*** Made less of a SelfImposedChallenge with cosmetic outfits which are ''literally'' just underwear.
* Taken UpToEleven in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', which has the option of you being this trope, companions which fight by your side (at least one per character class fits the trope), and ''half a dozen {{Stripperific}} dancers' outfits for either to wear''.
* Where do we even ''begin'' with ''VideoGame/{{TERA}}?'' Well, let's start with its [[AbsoluteCleavage page pic]] and continue on to pretty much every female character in the game. Some people would say it's the entire point of the game. There's a surprising amount of male [[ChainmailBikini skimpy armour]] for [[FemaleGaze the female gamer]] present as well.


[[folder: Platform Game ]]

* ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'':
** If you beat ''VideoGame/{{Metroid|1}}'' quickly enough, or know the right password, you can play as Samus in just a leotard. Though considering ''Metroid'' is 8-bit, this isn't all that arousing anyway.
** In the VideoGameRemake ''VideoGame/MetroidZeroMission,'' after escaping Mother Brain's explosion and [[spoiler: getting shot down by space pirates]], Samus spends a rather short time in her skintight Zero Suit, doing a lot of crawling around. The Zero Suit shows up again in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' as an alternate form for Samus. In this form, she uses a ''lot'' of SheFu, as well as a [[WhipItGood laser whip.]]
*** And it's back in the ''Smash Bros.'' series' Wii U and 3DS entries, somehow giving her the FanservicePack treatment despite already being the series' MsFanservice.
** ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'' has a number of ending stills unlockable by beating the game in varying levels of completeness and time. One in particular has Samus in a sports bra and cut-off shorts, and appears to be in her early 20s. Yowza.
** ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'' brings back the [[SpyCatsuit Zero Suit]] and takes its use UpToEleven. MaleGaze galore in cutscenes with it, Samus reverting to it during game overs, and even an escape sequence at the end in which she's fully playable in it.
* The {{Stripperiffic}} heroine of the UsefulNotes/PC98 ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' clone ''Rusty''.
* ''VideoGame/AliceMadnessReturns'' features a much more viscerally-titillating ElegantGothicLolita that is Alice. Eye-liner, crimson lips, petite waist... Some DLC dresses accentuate certain features of Alice more so than the default dress.
** Her London outfit? It does help that all other human [[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]] in the real world possess more grotesque physiques to contrast.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}}'' series has its eponymous protagonist, a cute purple-haired, belly-dancing, half-genie ActionGirl.


[[folder: Racing Game ]]

* ''VideoGame/MarioKart'': ''Mario Kart Wii'' introduced motorcycles to the series; equipping Peach, Pink Gold Peach, Rosalina and Daisy with a bike causes them to wear a body-clinging suit instead of a frilly dress (which would be very impractical to wear on a bike). The trope is especially prominent in ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'', where they begin each race standing up straddling the seat, waving their behinds toward the player before Lakitu begins the race countdown.


[[folder: Real Time Strategy ]]

* Tanya, the female Commando from ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert'', isn't third-person, but she qualifies, especially in her Creator/KariWuhrer incarnation in ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2 Red Alert 2]]''. During the many cutscenes, Wuhrer's Tanya leans into the camera, taking great advantage of her scoop-neck tank top. In one scene she even presses her breasts up against Einstein's shoulder in a way that was too obvious to be unintentional. Eva Lee, played by Athena Massey, finally lets down her hair in the final cutscene of the expansion ''Yuri's Revenge'', dressed in a very tight, low-cut white gown. On the Soviet side is the latex-clad Zofia, her husky Russian accent keeping the player company throughout the campaign.
* The female cast of ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberiumWars'', especially the Nod characters with their black leather and FemmeFatale personalities.
* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3'' took this to the point of [[FetishRetardant ludicrousness]]. All women in the game, from every rank and file in the Allied, Soviet, and Imperial armies is pin-up quality fanservice with {{Stripperiffic}} uniforms, which makes one wonder if they made it a rule at some point to only recruit ex-models as army officers.


[[folder: Role Playing Game ]]

* The ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series, while not a 3PS, has had plenty of examples since VII: [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Tifa Lockhart]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Rikku, Lulu]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 Yuna, Rikku]] (again, in ''X-2'', this time with more {{Stripperiffic}} outfits), [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Yuffie Kisaragi]] (''Advent Children'' only), [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII Fran]].
** [[ActionGirl Lightning]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' mostly averts this, as despite being a rose-haired eyecandy in shorts, she not only dresses in a BadassLongcoat and ScarfOfAsskicking, but is a SergeantRock of the gruffy, no-nonsense type, and is an industrial level [[DeadpanSnarker sarcasm source]] as well, somewhat [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon diluting the sex appeal]]; [[AmazonChaser unless you're into that sort of thing, of course.]] [[MsFanservice Fang]] and [[TheChick Vanille]], on the other hand...
*** Played straight in ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'', which takes an approach similar to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2''. Lightning is the sole playable character and has the capability to wear various costumes, including one based on [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud's SOLDIER outfit]]. WordOfGod has admitted to giving Lightning a FanservicePack in this installment for whatever reason.
** Even before ''FFVII'', female protagonists tended to be rather skimpily clad, but since they were also tiny SD pixels, no one noticed. The standard outfit for a SNES-era FF heroine was a one-piece bathing suit and some shoulder armor (e.g. Rosa, Celes).
** The future DS remakes and the CG artwork make this more obvious.
* Aqua from ''KingdomHearts'' fits this trope to a T. The character designer/director Creator/TetsuyaNomura altered her outfit post-reveal because he felt that it was a bit too revealing. Despite what some fans think, Disney didn't do any ExecutiveMeddling with the design.
** Before anyone gets any ideas, Aqua's censor consisted of covering up more of her [[SexyBacklessOutfit back]].
* ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines''. Female Malkavian characters wear stripper outfits as higher level armor.
** And cheerleader outfits as lower level armor. And both cowgirl and dominatrix cop outfits for medium level armor. It should also be noted that there is a cheat code in the game specifically for increasing the size of all female Malkavian breasts.
* Depending on playstyle, this may or may not be the case in ''VideoGame/FableII''. The female Sparrow is initially very pretty, and there are some {{Stripperiffic}} outfits you can put her in, but because the game morphs her based on your stat and story choices, a lot of players [[FanDisservice found the effect ruined]] when their melee character became too muscular, or their will-user was covered in glowing blue [[strike:veins]] lines, etc. On the other hand, if you know what to expect and are in the mood for a SelfImposedChallenge, you can keep certain stats low to tailor your character to what you like.
** Played straighter in ''VideoGame/FableIII'' where the Princess/Queen is pretty much ALWAYS hot to some degree, even if you make her fat, she just gets kinda chubby. Outfits can apply a variety of different effects, from skintight to short shorts with stockings, You can of course forgo pants altogether and fight evil monsters in your underwear.
* While by no means the default, the female Lone Wanderer in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' can be played this way if you put her in a skimpy enough outfit (such as the Raider outfits... or actual lingerie) and use the third-person camera, since the walking animation for females is this [[BuffySpeak sauntering type of thing]] with a fair amount of [[SexyWalk hip-swaying]]. Same for the female version of the Courier in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' and the female Sole Survivor in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''.
** Same for ''{{Videogame/Skyrim}}'' and even ''{{Videogame/Oblivion}}''. The modding community for all these games have a long-standing tradition of making attractive outfits and attractive bodies (primarily for females, though some male options do exist).
* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'':
** The female PC in both games, given the design of female armors.
** Taken UpToEleven in ''The Sith Lords'' with attractive female party members who are of a decent age, Mira and the Handmaiden. Even Visas isn't too shabby (if you give her Armor Proficiency). But, of course, the crowner has to be the dancer's outfit, which Mira, the Handmaiden, or a female PC can wear.
* ''[[EvenTheGuysWantHim All]]'' of the PlayerCharacters in ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire'' count, but [[http://images.wikia.com/jadeempire/images/a/a4/Loadscreen-WuTheLotusBlossom.jpg Wu the Lotus Blossom]] has to take the cake.
* The second and third ''Franchise/MassEffect'' games began applying this trope. While in the first it was pretty subtle, the second game throws subtlety right out the window, with love interests getting quite a bit of interesting camera time, and the absence of the heavy armor from the first game in favor of tight outfits that resemble {{Spy Catsuit}}s and kinky gear. Even [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] got in on the act. His/her face can be customized, but the body and default looks are nothing to be sneezed at, at all. Throw in how nice s\he looks in the armor, [[BadassInANiceSuit several]] optional [[LittleBlackDress outfits]] and [[MaleGaze some of the camera angles]] and Shepard qualifies.
** The third game recognizes this, with promo images and videos portraying a little [[HotterAndSexier redesign]] for female Shepard, showing her as fearsome, awesome and viciously hot. Hasn't exactly escaped the notice of her [[Creator/JenniferHale voice actress]] either.
** Tali's hips have been guilty throughout the entire trilogy and don't even begin about Miranda's... possessions.
** Sara Ryder in ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' is slim, her hips move a lot when walking and jogging, and is a bit busty. She even gets a ShirtlessScene in some romances.
* ''VideoGame/{{Neverend}}'''s heroine Agavaen is a busty, redheaded, elven-looking thief who starts the game in a [[BareYourMidriff midriff-bearing white blouse]]. Some of the maps that have a FixedCamera use angles that [[MaleGaze show off her assets]].
* The [[ChainmailBikini Desert Sorceress Set]] of ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' turns your female character into a curvy figure, although the thick shoulders still exist. [[note]]This is a tradition for Creator/FromSoftware to add thick shoulders for female PlayerCharacter to have their attack animations same as the males[[/note]]. This can backfire and become FanDisservice if your character becomes hollowed, or if you put it onto male characters.
* Franchise/DragonAge:
** Leliana of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins,'' being the beautiful French spy who is rather aggressive in seducing you, is a rather literal example. Morrigan also counts.
** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' has Isabela (who had a brief appearance in the first game, but looked a lot different). Isabela is an exotic, busty beauty who wears a shirt that bares about a foot of cleavage, [[OfCorsetsSexy a corset]], [[PantyShot no pants]], and ThighHighBoots. She is also sexually aggressive and offers the player character a FriendsWithBenefits relationship fairly early in the game.
** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' actually has two rare male examples. The Iron Bull is a sexually aggressive mountain of muscle, and most of his outfits have him shirtless or nearly so. Downplayed with Dorian, who is also an attractive man but whose outfits generally reveal less than Bull's. Although Leliana returns, she does not count this time around.


[[folder: Stealth Based Game ]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Tenchu}}'' gave us [[http://www.wallpaperist.com/wallpapers/Games/Tenchu/Tenchu-4/Rinshi-thumb.jpg Rinshi]] and a wonderful three second frame filling shot of [[http://news.dengeki.com/elem/000/000/103/103058/c20080902_tenchu_37_cs1w1_640x358.jpg her chest]]. The only thing that Rikimaru pays attention to is her ''Clan-tattoo''. Way to go, man.
* Violette Summer of ''VideoGame/VelvetAssassin'', putting gamers in the weird situation of ogling her rear right before she jams a knife into a Nazi's head.
* To a lesser extent, Niobe in ''VideoGame/EnterTheMatrix''.


[[folder: Survival Horror ]]

* Through half of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', the main character is followed around by Ashley, a 20-year old woman in a tight sweater, who is also a playable character for one chapter. Players who beat the game, start anew, and select the "special" cop outfit for Leon will discover Ashley in a special outfit of her own, featuring substantial cleavage and very tight pants.
** Averted in the [=PS2=]/Wii ports, where Ashley gets another alternate costume that's a suit of armor. Not some sexy BreastPlate costume, either, but a full suit of medieval plate armor. Not very sexy, but on the plus side, it makes her invulnerable.
** Played Straight with Ada in a {{qipao}}, who can also be controlled in her own side-story. When she was introduced in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' she was wearing [[http://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-02/art/re2-ada-wong.jpg this]] as the attack started while she was at a dinner party. In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' she's dressed like [[http://i.neoseeker.com/ca/residentevil4_conceptart_Na27h.jpg this]]... because that's how all spies dress.
*** Ada's wearing ''very'' tight leather pants in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'', and you'll spend a lot of her campaign watching her from behind as she crawls through tight air ducts.
** Jill Valentine's tube top and miniskirt from ''Nemesis''. Or her SpyCatsuit in ''5''.
*** In the ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' remake, you can unlock Jill's miniskirt outfit from ''RE 3'', allowing upskirt shots in several cutscenes.
** Claire Redfield's [[BareYourMidriff midriff-baring vest]] in ''Code: Veronica''. Or the bikini that she wore in one of the challenge modes.
** Sheva Alomar. Her normal outfit was fairly sexy, but also fairly practical for working in the middle of Africa, and you couldn't see her cleavage from the game's over-the-shoulder camera angle. Her bonus outfits, however, included a FurBikini and a club outfit that looked more suited to Studio 54 than a warzone.
*** Not to mention that Sheva's introduction is being shown her bum and then her chest.
** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' not only has Ada in her tight and revealing clothing jumping around in her mission, the game also features a section where [[spoiler: Sherry]] runs around with something like a hospital gown. With NOTHING underneath [[note]]We don't get an upskirt, but it is more than obviously implied that she isn't having anything under that white dress[[/note]].
* Astral in ''VideoGame/GhostHunter.'' Pretty hot for a floating spirit girl.
* ''[[VideoGame/OperatorsSide Operator's Side / Lifeline]]'' took this to the extreme with main character Rio, whom the player didn't control - instead, she followed vocal commands. Ads played up the idea that "[[BlatantLies She'll do anything you ask her to]]," ignoring how limited the vocal recognition technology actually was. They did, however, include a few hidden commands that literally served no purpose other than making her strike poses.
* Heather in ''VideoGame/SilentHill3'' was an aversion. While her normal outfit included a miniskirt, the heavy vest she wore covered up any hint of figure, while her comparatively form-fitting bonus outfits (most of which were fairly sensible tank tops and jeans) revealed that she didn't have much of a figure to begin with. However, her unlockable MagicalGirl outfit played this trope to the hilt, in addition to giving her cool {{Eye Beam|s}} attacks, one of which is explicitly called the "Sexy Beam".
* ''VideoGame/HauntingGround'': Played for drama, in a sense, with Fiona. The two main outfits she wears during the game are tight-fitting and sexualized, but both were forced upon her by men with an extremely perverse lust for her and the overall effect is more disturbing than sexy, particularly when paired with her innocent, angelic appearance. Played very straight in the case of some of the unlockable outfits, however, including the "Illegal in Some States" dominatrix outfit.


[[folder: Third Person Shooter ]]

* ''VideoGame/BloodRayne'' has the half-vampire Rayne, in the 1940s, wearing an outfit that resembles latex fetish wear. She recovers health by latching on to enemies and sucking their necks. She has a tendency to pole-dance through jumping puzzles.
** And then there's [[HelloNurse the dress she wears in the first part of II]]...
* Vanessa Z Schneider of ''VideoGame/PN03'' is, more or less, a heavily sexualised female version of the Storm Troopers from ''StarWars''. Her shapely rear is heavily emphasised by the tight-fitting outfits, her hips wiggle more emphatically with each level of autofire the player gains, and she curls her limbs every which way when doing her "smart bomb" attacks. Oh, and her "expert" costume (maximum abilities, zero defense) consists of a high-tech sports bra, [[ThongOfShielding thong]], and kinky boots.
%%* Mona in ''VideoGame/MaxPayne2TheFallOfMaxPayne''.
%%* ''VideoGame/BulletWitch'' is this.
* Can be played straight or averted in ''VideoGame/JediAcademy'' depending on the player's choices in customizing his/her avatar:
** Human female avatars are a surprising aversion, as all clothing options for them are sensible and modest.
** Played straight with the alien female skins, particularly the Twi'leks - the default species for any GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe in ''Franchise/StarWars''.
** Averted for everyone during the Hoth levels, as the player character wears cold weather gear regardless of species or gender.
* Rubi from ''VideoGame/{{Wet}}'' somehow manages to be both a tough, no-nonsense ActionGirl, without any excesses above and below and dressed appropriately for the kind of work she is in, and ''simultaneously'' a sleek and sexy example this trope.
** Well, no excesses other than the vacuum-packed leather jacket.
* The female player characters in ''H.A.V.E. online''/ ''Videogame/{{Microvolts}}''. Bonus points in that they are highly customizable (hairstyle, clothes, accessories, and weapons) as well as being {{Animesque}}.
%%* The Sorceress in ''VideoGame/OrcsMustDie 2''.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' has several sections playable as Catwoman, who works the SexyWalk to full effect. Not surprising since Catwoman has a ''long'' history of flaunting her looks to distract opponents.
* ''VideoGame/DestroyAllHumans 2'' has the character of Natalya, met in the city of Albion (London). Not playable, but a very major character for the rest of the game.
* In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', if you play a female character in Online mode, you can modify her appearance and [[VirtualPaperDoll apparel]] to your heart's content. And yes, you can also make your character {{Stripperific}} too.
* Averted in ''VideoGame/{{Mercenaries}}: Playground of Destruction''. Jennifer Mui wears a bulky jacket and stirrup pants in the first zone and instanced dungeons, and a jean jacket and jeans in the northern province. Her midriff below the jacket is covered in a shirt, and while there is hip movement while she walks, it is neither exaggerated, nor is she especially well endowed.
** In the sequel, it is played straight and {{Lampshaded}} by Mui herself. One of her costumes is a SpyCatsuit and even her basic outfit involves very tight pants. When putting on the catsuit, she will sometimes indignantly claim it's something a video game character would wear. And, if you're into that sort of thing, you can have her wear a chicken costume.
* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' not only has a "sex appeal" slider for both genders and entire clothing option slots for underwear, but access to a fetishwear store, cosplay shop, and the option to just run around naked (with pixelation). The entire game intentionally takes great RefugeInAudacity as a fundamental premise, but female characters are still sexualized to a much greater degree while for male characters it tends more to be played for laughs.
* In ''VideoGame/SunsetOverdrive'', a female PlayerCharacter can be set up this way with the "curvy" body type and various {{stripperific}} attire such as a [[BareYourMidriff midriff]] or [[AbsoluteCleavage cleavage]]-bearing top, [[WhoWearsShortShorts short short]]s, [[PaintedOnPants tights]], [[DangerouslyShortSkirt a miniskirt]], or just plain lingerie. Sexual appeal is further enhanced by the game's high-flying {{parkour}} mechanics.
