'''Basic Trope''': A brief glimpse of a character's underwear for purposes of titillation.
* '''Straight''': A sudden gust of wind catches Alice's skirt, and the audience sees her panties.
* '''Exaggerated''': Alice is a {{Cute Clumsy|Girl}} ActionGirl in a completely [[MagicSkirt non-magical miniskirt]]. Between her [[KickChick fighting style]], her carelessness, the wind, and the inevitable ClothingDamage, Alice's panties are on display almost constantly.
* '''Downplayed''': Alice's skirt flies just high enough to reveal the corner of her panties for a few frames.
* '''Justified''':
** Alice is wearing a miniskirt on a windy day.
** Alice is a KickChick in a MinidressOfPower.
** [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Alice enjoys deliberately showing off her underwear.]]
* '''Inverted''':
** Alice normally walks around in just her underwear or an equivalent brief outfit--but there are exciting moments when she wears more clothing.
** Alice bends over to tie her shoes, and [[MaleGaze the audience gets a glimpse of her cleavage]].
* '''Gender Inverted''': In a show with female targeted fanservice [[MrFanservice Al]][[{{Bishonen}} ex]] [[ManInAKilt frequently has]] [[BadassLongRobe his underwear exposed]].
* '''Subverted''':
** Alice is GoingCommando.
** Alice is actually a [[WholesomeCrossdresser man]], and this is the reveal.
** It's [[CensorShadow too dark]] under the skirt to see anything.
** Alice is [[ModestyShorts wearing shorts under her skirt]].
** Alice's "undies" are actually a part of a leotard she's wearing underneath.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** Upon realizing she forgot to put her panties on, Alice promptly does so, giving the audience a glimpse as she pulls them snug.
** Even after it's revealed that Alice is a [[WholesomeCrossdresser man]] we still get glimpses up his skirt to reveal his panties.
** Alice finds the panties uncomfortable. She takes them off, giving the audience a view as she pulls them out of her skirt.
** Then her shorts fall off.
** The leotard [[ClothingDamage gets destroyed]] leaving her panties exposed.
* '''Parodied''':
** The female characters are [[NoFourthWall fully aware of the male audience]] and [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl deliberately put themselves in position to give panty shots to keep the audience's interest.]]
** The only "panty shots" are of unattractive men, the non-sexy undead, non-humanoid monsters and other FanDisservice.
** [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt Panties are used as projectile weapons, making for literal panty shots]].
* '''Zig Zagged''': Sometimes in the series, a panty shot will be set up, and it will happen. Other times, it will be subverted, averted or cut away from at the last moment. This actually increases viewership, as the uncertainty keeps the audience from getting bored of underwear.
* '''Averted''':
** MagicSkirt
** All female characters wear trousers or other underwear-hiding garments.
* '''Enforced''': "Our target audience is teenage boys who can't get actual pornography legally. Be sure to include plenty of panty shots."
* '''Lampshaded''': "Have you ever considered wearing something that doesn't fly up at the mildest breeze?"
* '''Invoked''':
** Alice deliberately goes out in a miniskirt on a windy day, because she spent a bundle on these really cute panties and [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl it's a quick way to show them off.]]
** [[LovableSexManiac Bob]] carries around a leaf blower to arrange sudden wind gusts.
* '''Exploited''': Thanks to some sort of ZanyScheme, Alice's panties now have the MacGuffin's activation code written on them. Rather than waste time explaining the situation, Bob simply walks behind her and waits for a convenient gust of wind.
* '''Defied''': "It's a little too windy for a miniskirt today. I think I'll wear jeans instead."
* '''Discussed''': "The coolest girl in our class? Alice, because she doesn't mind letting us boys get a glimpse of heaven."
* '''Conversed''': "Y'know, there can be too much of a good thing. I'm beginning to think the girls on this show have brain damage or something, the way they keep falling over to show their panties."
* '''Deconstructed''': Alice likes wearing short skirts and panties, but she hates how prone her skirt is to revealing her panties. This puts her into a dilemma about her fashion sense and ultimately leads to her abandoning the short skirt and panties for more conservative clothing.
* '''Reconstructed''': Alice doesn't care if people see her panties; it's what she wants to wear. Turning on men is simply a bonus in her mind.
* '''Played For Laughs''': ComedicUnderwearExposure.
* '''Played For Drama''': Because Alice frequently exposes her underwear, she is harassed by perverts and MoralGuardians alike.
