->'''[[MsFanservice Bullet]]''': What!? B-Butt Floss!?

Hot pants, mini shorts, or [[Series/TheDukesOfHazzard daisy dukes]]? Whatever you call them, it can be a great way to ShowSomeLeg without having to worry about a PantyShot. While it's mostly a female trope, we're seeing more and more males slipping in. This trope became popular in RealLife around [[TheFifties the mid-1950s]], and even though it has never been at the height of fashion, it's never really gone away either.

For added sexiness, combine with ZettaiRyouiki, ShesGotLegs. If you don't want to be too revealing, [[TightsUnderShorts just add tights.]]

!!Examples:
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Advertising]]
* Nair depilatory famously used the song (see Music below) as part of an ad campaign that ran from the late 1970s well into the 1980s.
* Masculine example PlayedForLaughs: the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSFCvG6curE L&P ''Stubbies'' advert]] shown in New Zealand. Also pokes fun at the TheSeventies.
** ''[[http://www.stubbies.com.au Stubbies]]'' are a brand of men's shorts popular in Australia and New Zealand in the 1970s, and was a common part of schoolboys' uniforms.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Misty's best known outfit includes very short jean-shorts.
** And in later generations, yellow shorts of the same length.
* Yoko from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''.
* Kallen from ''Anime/CodeGeass''.
* Revy from ''Manga/BlackLagoon.'' Permanently unbuttoned.
* ''LyricalNanoha''
** ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' introduced this trope to the franchise with Subaru and her Barrier Jacket, which consists of a tank top, coat, cape, and jean shorts combo.
** ''MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'' added two more short shorts-wearing females to the line up: [[GatlingGood Arnage]] [[MacrossMissileMassacre Huckebein]] and [[ThrowDownTheBomblet Isis]].
* Kanzaki Kaori of ''ToAruMajutsuNoIndex'' is an unusual example: she wears a pair of jeans... [[FashionableAsymmetry with one leg cut off.]] [[ImpossiblyCoolClothes Goes really well with]] [[{{Stripperiffic}} her tied-up white T-shirt.]]
** It's supposed to be a disguised magic ritual.
* The one-legged jeans are also part of Kisara Nanjou's style of choice in ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''.
* Envy of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. [[AmbiguousGender Hard to place as a male or female example]].
* Alois Trancy from the second season of the ''BlackButler'' anime frequently wears these, to the point that his "Booty Shorts" have pretty much reached memetic status.
* Usagi Tsukino from ''Anime/SailorMoon'' wears this with several of her outfits. Rei Hino has also worn this from time to time.
** Also the Amazoness Quartet's final disguise in Super S.
** The Starlights probably count as well.
* Sakura Kyouko from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' wears cut-off jean shorts as part of her civilian outfit.
* Mew Zakuro from ''TokyoMewMew''.
* Anzu Mazaki/Tea Gardner from ''Anime/YuGiOh'' occasionally wore short shorts as part of her outfits, when she wasn't wearing a mini skirt.
** Let's not forget Shizuka/Serenity during Season 3 and the second half of Season 2.
** Mai Kujaku/Valentine from the same show normally wears a purple skirt with a white corset, but wore purple short-shorts and a black corset when she was temporarily {{Brainwashed}} by Dartz during the events of Season 4.
* Speaking of Valentine, Faye's trademark yellow outfit in ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' probably counts.
* Part of LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya's UnlimitedWardrobe. She wears cuffed jean shorts when the story wants to remind you she's the [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl Tomboy to Mikuru's Girly Girl]].
* By the series Standards, Hana-chan from ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'' wears these. With cute little hearts on each side.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Nami in the 10th movie, ''OnePieceStrongWorld'', wears super short jean shorts.
* Ururu in ''Anime/OkusamaWaMahouShoujo'' tends to wear short shorts, as opposed to dresses like her friends.
* The titular ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena''.
* Akasha Bloodriver from ''RosarioToVampire'' is shown to wear this under her gown when she removes the latter right before [[spoiler:her sacrificial attempt to go Medieval on Alucard's ass.]] OfCorsetsSexy also comes into play.
* Mizuho Asano from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' is commonly seen in hot pink short-shorts.
* Both Shiro and Anri from ''{{Adekan}}'' occasionally do this. As in, daisy duke shorts on a dude. Anri usually wears long pants, but the legs of them appear to be detachable which make them kind of creepy chaps-shorts.
* In ''Anime/VividredOperation'', not only are the girls commonly seen wearing bloomers, but short shorts are part of the ''school uniform''.
* In the ''[[Manga/DragonBallZ Dragonball Z]]'' filler scene of the Invisible Spaceship, Bulma is wearing short light purple shorts in addition to [[BareYourMidriff baring her midriff]]. This only applies to the original dub, however, as she is wearing underwear in the Japanese version and the redub which was changed as a means of censorship.
* Heero Yuy from ''Anime/GundamWing''. Being designed after a female model, it doesn't do much for his already diminishing masculinity. He switches to white full-length pants for the OAV sequel, however.
* ''Manga/DeadlineSummonner'' has Mamoru Onodera's Werewolf who favours this, alongside a [[HellBentForLeather leather jacket,]] [[{{Stripperific}} skimpy top,]] and [[CollaredByFashion a collar,]] with plenty of spikes to go around.
* [[Manga/HunterXHunter Gon]] wears mid-thigh shorts all the time. Killua wears them a lot, too.
* Misato Katsuragi from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' wears these when at home.
* Lucy and Lisanna from ''Manga/FairyTail'' both like this type of clothing. It almost seems like they take turns in wearing them - Lisanna usually wears shorts when Lucy is wearing a skirt, and Lucy usually wears shorts in the arcs [[OutOfFocus that Lisanna doesn't take part in]].
* Battle Lovers Scarlet and Vesta of ''BinanKoukouChikyuuBoueibuLove'', who are guys. To indicate how short they are, Scarlet's ones narrowly miss mid-thigh and he's the shortest of the five Battle Lovers.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Ramona Flowers, love interest of ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'', frequently wears short shorts, [[TightsUnderShorts often with brightly colored tights underneath]].
* Ninjette from ''ComicBook/{{Empowered}}'' habitually wears a pair apparently held together at the sides by shuriken and with her ''nom de guerre'' [[HighlyVisibleNinja printed across the seat]].
* {{Robin}}'s classic costume is a rare male example. His modern costumes give him longer pants.
* DCComics' Dolphin
* ''Comicbook/YoungAvengers'' has Miss America Chavez.
* During a period of time in ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' where the main characters were forced to go to school, Bunnie Rabbot wore some of these.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fanfiction]]
* This is part of Cure Western's outfit in ''FanFic/PrettyCureHollywoodStars'', resulting in at least one comparison to Misty from Anime/{{Pokemon}} (see above). The rolled-up jean shorts carry over to her Super Cure form, and Super Cure Western even pairs them with Grade B ZettaiRyouiki and, in the last episode, [[TightsUnderShorts gold tights]]!
* LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Flanderizes this in the PrettyCure-style reboot, ''FanFic/SOSPrettyCure'', and it even features in her Cure outfit, along with Grade A ZettaiRyouiki!
* Who wears [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Shadow's]] short shorts? [[FanFic/YetAgain CRYPT]]! And subsequently gets his ass kicked by her.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Alice in the first ''Film/ResidentEvil'' film, though the shorts are partly concealed by the red dress she's wearing.
* [[ZooeyDeschanel Trillian]] the first time we see her in the main story, in ''Film/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy''.
* Kristofferson in ''WesternAnimation/FantasticMrFox'' wears short-shorts. Though it is most certainly not for sex appeal. [[FurryFandom At least we assume.]]
* Worn by Candice during her fatal gymnastics practice session in ''FinalDestination5''. Justified as most other gymnasts were wearing this as well during the same scene, including the gymnast that got Candice killed accidentally by sheer carelessness.
* The title character of ''TamaraDrewe''. As a disapproving older woman notes, "She poured herself into those shorts. She'll give herself thrush." No one remembers the movie; everyone remembers the trailer that primarly featured this sequence.
* Felicity Shagwell in ''Film/AustinPowers: The Spy Who Shagged Me''. They're skin-tight.
* Half of the scenes featuring Steve Christy in the original ''Film/FridayThe13th1980'' has him wearing shorts shorts, an ascot and [[WalkingShirtlessScene not much else]].
* In ''Film/TheMaster'', many of the navy men in the beginning of the movie. [[IncrediblyLamePun They were very much out of uniform.]]
* Pepper Potts in ''Film/TheAvengers'', as well as being barefoot. Since she usually wears business suits and high heels, this shows how relaxed she's become around Tony since their relationship started.
* ''Film/TheGreatOutdoors'' features a female character wearing these in a bar, where she gets goosed with a pool cue wielded by one of the main male characters and, of course, romance ensues. Making the scene more remarkable is the woman is played by LucyDeakins, best known for chase tween roles in films like TheBoyWhoCouldFly, leading to more than a few HelloNurse moments for fans.
* Part of [[Creator/EmmaWatson Nikki]]'s wardrobe in ''Film/TheBlingRing''. Most infamously worn during the pole dancing sequence.
* The Fabricants in ''Film/CloudAtlas'', specifically for fanservice since they're waitresses.
* When he's not on duty, [[PsychoForHire Agent Kruger]] does in ''Flim/{{Elysium}}''. According to some of the BTS material, the idea of him wearing these came from his actor Sharlto Copley.
* Creator/MelissaGeorge in ''Film/{{Triangle}}'' wears shorts.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'' has Daisy Duke, to the [[TropeCodifier point where "Daisy Dukes" is a well-known nickname]] for really short cut-off jean shorts. It's worth noting that due to TV censorship rules, she had to wear [[NudeColoredClothes flesh-colortights]] underneath. When TheMovie was released in 2005 (with JessicaSimpson), the tights weren't necessary any more, and viewers actually got to see her legs.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' - Amy sports a pair in "The Hungry Earth", but the group ''were'' supposed to be in Rio (she wears them with tights because they actually filmed the episode in winter).
** Turlough also sports a nice pair in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E5PlanetOfFire Planet of Fire]]".
** Zoe gets in on the act in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS6E6TheSpacePirates The Space Pirates]]".
* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'': Part of Billie's Amazon outfit.
* Each of the girls in ''Series/H2OJustAddWater''. Justified due to the setting being the Gold Coast which is in the tropical north of Australia's eastern seaboard.
* Creator/JonathanMShiff also used this in [[SpiritualSuccessor a later series]], ''Series/AlienSurfGirls''.
* ''Series/BlueWaterHigh'' is another Australian offender.
* ''Series/AreYouBeingServed'': During German week the staff is decked out in Lederhosen. There are two pairs of extra-short shorts, worn by Miss Brahms and Mr Humphries.
* ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' for pretty much all of the girls. Justified due to the setting being California.
* A number of Sentai heroines, including Yoko Usami (Yellow Buster) of ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters'', Amy Yuzuki (Kyoryu Pink) of ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' and Moune (Gosei Yellow) of ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger''.
* Ally of ''AustinAndAlly''. Justified due to the setting being Miami.
* Officer Jim Dangle, of ''{{Reno 911}}''.
* Graeme in ''TheGoodies'' episode "Scoutrageous". So tight that he can't bend over in them. Almost certainly intended as FanDisservice.
* Zoe Hart of ''Series/HartOfDixie'', who is ''a town doctor''. Frequently [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]].
* On an episode of ''Series/ThePartridgeFamily'', they got new outfits with the girls wearing short-shorts. Tracy later asks, "Why are these called hot pants? I'm freezing."
* 19 year old Danger O'Riley in a first-season episode of ''Series/{{Bewitched}}''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Manhwa]]
* Yeon from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod''. Paired with bare shoulders. [[TightsUnderShorts She's wearing pantyhose underneath]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* The TropeNamer would be the 1957 song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcvjXAtzaMU Short Shorts]]" by the Royal Teens. You may know it via PopculturalOsmosis as "that song from the [[Memes.{{Advertising}} Nair commercials]]".
** Or an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
** The song had a ShoutOut in Sheb Wooley's "Purple People Eater".
* Rin Kagamine from {{Vocaloid}}.
* Music/KatyPerry[='s=] song "California Gurls":
-->California girls, we're unforgettable
-->Daisy Dukes, bikinis on top
* 3OH!3 brings up the trope again in "Starstrukk":
-->Nice legs, Daisy Dukes
-->Makes a man go ''[whistle]''!
* Extremely prevalent among [[KoreanPopMusic K-pop]] girl groups, especially Music/GirlsGeneration.
* Japanese guitarist [[Music/{{Versailles}} Teru]] is a rare male example of this (usually combined with BareYourMidriff).
* 69 Boyz & Duice's "Dazzey Duks".
* PixieLott. Every second outfit she wears involves a pair of these.
* MileyCyrus, as evidenced in many candids.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mythology]]
* Most vanaras (monkey-like creatures) in HinduMythology wears this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinball]]
* In Bally's ''Pinball/EightBall'', "Pinky" wears a pair of scandalously (for the time) short white shorts.
* Melony and Ellen in [=WhizBang=] Pinball's ''[[Pinball/WhoaNellieBigJuicyMelons Whoa Nellie! Big Juicy Melons]]'' are {{Farmers Daughter}}s who combine this with BareYourMidriff.
* Worn by all of the [[FanServiceWithASmile service staff]] in ''Pinball/TruckStop''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/StacyKeibler. "[[Music/ZZTop She's got legs, and she knows how to use em]]"
* When they were in the original Wrestling/{{ECW}} as part of Wrestling/{{Raven}}'s Flock, Wrestling/StevieRichards and Wrestling/TheBlueMeanie regularly wore cut-off jean shorts.
* Wrestling/LayCool often, though they did have ring gear that consisted of pants or long tights too.
* The majority of the Wrestling/{{WWE}} Divas 2004 onward wear short-shorts and halter tops in the ring.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sports]]
* Standard in women's volleyball and handball.
* In a rare male example, basketball legend John Stockton was [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-egW-Ktr1fMk/T85GFdcAe9I/AAAAAAAAAKg/oK-WtF5Sc4Q/s1600/5682ead4.jpg famous for these]]. Amusingly, apparently they were short because [[http://allball.blogs.nba.com/2013/10/31/talk-show-john-stockton/ Stockton was never asked to lengthen them until late in his career]].
** Stockton was the just the last to change; before the early 90s, EVERYONE in the NBA wore very short, and very tight, shorts.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Hilda, the female protagonist in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', has quite short shorts.
** Also Bugsy, the Gym Leader of Azalea town, wears them, which only adds to his already very [[ViewerGenderConfusion girly looks]].
** As does Whitney, Clair, Elesa (in the sequels), Skyla and Diantha.
* The respective best endings in ''{{Metroid}} Fusion'' and ''Zero Mission'' feature Samus Aran in blue and red short shorts and tanktop.
* Matsu from ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' wears very short shorts (which are slitted up the sides to boot).
* Laharl from ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'', [[LegalJailbait he is 1313 but looks like he is 13]].
** From ''VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice'' comes Salvatore the Magnificent, who is also equipped with a pair of short shorts.
** In ''VideoGame/DisgaeaDimension2'', Laharl trades his shorts for pants. However, his vassal Etna takes his place in this trope as she trades her skirt for ''really'' short shorts.
* Yuffie of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' and its expansions changes outfits most frequently out of the cast, but always includes short shorts and stockings.
* Yuna, from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' wears tiny shorts underneath her [[ShowgirlSkirt half-skirt]] [[BuffySpeak thing.]] Rikku had a pair in both games.
* Lightning Farron from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' counts, with tight biker shorts that double as ModestyShorts.
* Alyssa Zaidelle from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII-2''.
** The only free DLC costume for Serah (Style and Steel) featured a pair in favour of her usual mini-skirt.
* Ken Amada from ''{{Persona3}}''. He even wears them in the winter!
* Scharlachrot from ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart 3''.
* Lara Croft of ''Franchise/TombRaider'' wears these in her most iconic outfit.
* Desdemona in ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes''.
* The Soviet commando, [[ColdSniper Natasha]], from ''CommandAndConquerRedAlert3''. [[ExposedToTheElements In the Russian winter]].
* In ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', Lilly's pyjamas involve a relatively modest top and a pair of ''very'' short shorts. [[ShesGotLegs Hisao sure appreciates the view.]]
* Akari Ichijou of ''VideoGame/TheLastBlade'' wears a variation of a {{Miko}} outfit that includes these.
* Poison in ''FinalFight'' has EXTREMELY short shorts (especially in the official artwork).
* SAXTON HALE of (the {{backstory}} comics of) ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' is [[TestosteronePoisoning so manly]] that he rarely wears much more clothing at all!
* Bullet from ''VideoGame/BlazBlueChronoPhantasma'' wears uncomfortably tight-looking [[MemeticMutation hottopantsu]] that resemble a belt more than anything else, which makes the actual belt look redundant. In addition to Ragna calling it "butt floss" due to how gratuitous it is, this is also what inspired Taokaka to call her "Butt Lady".
** While she wears a DangerouslyShortSkirt under normal circumstances, Makoto has a pair of spandex shorts after Amane [[FinishingMove Astrals]] her.
* Minogame from ''VideoGame/{{Hellsinker}}'' wears a kind of very short brown jeans shorts. One interesting thing to note is that while Minogame is a {{Hermaphrodite}} he is always referred to as male.
* Sharla from ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' starts with the [[http://youtu.be/ZeDaBS28nRw?t=6m30s latest combat Daisy Dukes]] as her default equipment.
* ''VideoGame/{{Mega Man ZX}}'' has Aile and Grey(The latter being one of the few male examples of this trope.).
* For ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', all of the series' previous protagonists got redesigns for their DLC appearances. ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Gaiden]]'''s female protagonist, Celica, received an outfit with a pair of shorts so short that even with the in-game picture cutting off just ''barely'' past the waist, it still shows bare thighs. (Full version [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130506005540/fireemblem/images/4/4d/Celica_%28FE13_Artwork%29.png here]].) Not entirely surprising given that the artist commissioned for her redesign [[BleachedUnderpants normally does erotic doujinshi.]]
* Ms. Fortune of ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' when it comes to playable characters. Patty from The Last Hope when it comes to non-playable characters in ''Skullgirls''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' has a Raider outfit of this type added with ''The Pitt''.
* The Great Khan outfits in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' all feature this when worn by a female character.
** Both 3 and New Vegas feature the Raider Badlands Armor, which appear to also be homaging Tomb Raider's outfit.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* ''{{Homestuck}}'': In a rare male example, Jake seems to be associated with short shorts above and beyond any of the other characters - both of his alchemised outfits in Act 6 Act 4 feature them, and even earlier on when he was wearing much longer shorts he one point tried to wear [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]]-style gun holsters and thought to himself that he'd probably need to be wearing shorter shorts to pull them off. Not only ''that'', but Jake's class is the Page, whose god tier outfit features memetically speedo-length shorts. At any rate, [[FanService the fandom sure appreciates it all.]] [[FanDisservice Mostly.]]
** In the Ministrife update, we also get to see an alternate-timeline God-Tier Tavros, who shares the Page class and thus the boy booty shorts. Depending on whether you see him as {{Adorkable}} or just [[{{Pun}} a dorky bull]]...
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'''s "creepy pants" are a pair of hot pink/purple shorts of the 'Daisy Duke' variety (an American form of shorts made by cutting the legs of snug jeans, sometimes so much so that the white pocket liners can be seen). It is later revealed that he was out of his mind on Strong Sad's anti-depressants at the time.
* Part of Taylor-Ruth of ''HangingRockComics'' fame's iconic outfit.
* In the ''WhateleyUniverse'', one of the many problems with the new costume of [=THE CRIMSON COMET!!!=]. Granted, she just got the superpowers and the curves a couple weeks ago and she hasn't gotten over it yet.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* On ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Peter once went through a [[{{Squick}} Daisy Duke]] [[BrainBleach phase.]]
-->'''Brian''': It looks like a walrus flossing!
** In TheMovie Joe's wife dies and he gets her legs. Leading him to proclaim "Who wears short shorts? ''[[NoIndoorVoice I WEAR SHORT SHORTS!"]]''
* On ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'', [[AlphaBitch Heather]], [[ThoseTwoGuys Katie]], and [[FatGirl Sadie]] all wear very short shorts
* ''SymBionicTitan'''s Ilana wears these on occasion as part of her UnlimitedWardrobe.
* Lola Bunny wears a pair of short gym shorts as part of her original IconicOutfit.
* On ''MissionHill'', Jim returns from Japan with the latest thing there, brightly colored short shorts with HelloKitty style decorations. Andy thinks they're ridiculous, but is soon the [[IncrediblyLamePun butt]] of scorn from the hip crowd because he isn't wearing them. When he finally comes around, he finds they're no longer hip, as they've gone mainstream and worn by the middle-aged.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' did it. Someone wondered where the police were, and were informed by the Mayor they were investigating a boat crash carrying hotpants. Cut to the entire force, including Chief Wiggum asking 'Who wears short shorts?'
* [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dolly_gnome_1383.png Dolly Gnome]] from ''WesternAnimation/GnomeoAndJuliet''.
* Raf from ''AngelsFriends''.
* In ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' Stella's first fairy form has yellow shorts.
* In ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', use of Death Kwon Do requires cutoff jeans and a mullet. (In fact, anyone can use Death Kwon Do immediately just by wearing them.)
