* Shiki Tohno in the sequel/fandisc of ''{{Tsukihime}}'' is shirtless in one possible evening scene at the mansion. He addresses the three female occupants of the house while toweling off his hair, and they are all [[DistractedByTheSexy appropriately stunned by the almighty Tohno Gland]]. [[{{Tsundere}} Akiha]] even ''apologizes'' for something in her daze.
* Sephiroth, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', goes shirtless for the game's final showdown, a one-on-one duel with his nemesis Cloud. Although the low polygon count destroys the point of even bothering with it.
** The polygon count ''was'' higher in that battle than any of the real ones. Sephiroth also appears "naked but but obscured by something weird from the waist down" in the cutscene where he gains the Black Materia. Which may actually be justified rather than just censorship if you consider his ultimate OneWingedAngel form. Which also had no shirt, but that version ''really'' had a tiny polygon count.
** The Square Enix store in Japan has a life size statue of Sephiroth frozen in materia set into the floor. [[http://img810.imageshack.us/i/sephirothatsqexshop1.jpg/ Cue drooling]]
*** more like [[UncannyValley cue shuddering]].
** Also, in the prequel ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'', a member of Sephiroth's fanclub mentions how much she'd like to see him "stripped to the waist."
*** And then there's Zack's shirtless beach scene in Crisis Core, complete with invisible armour and materia slots.
** On the other hand, if the PS3 remake of ''FFVII'' ever comes to fruition, that shirtless fight scene will be rendered with today's hyper-realistic graphics. Damn.
** Sephiroth goes shirtless in his alt costume in ''VideoGame/{{Dissidia|FinalFantasy}}''. Careful not to drool on your PSP.
*** Sephiroth also goes shirtless in his alt costume in ''Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring''. Rendered better than in ''FFVII'', but obviously not as good as ''Dissidia''.
* In similar fashion, the first ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' game's FinalBoss also goes shirtless after he somehow merged with a gargantuan Heartless battleship for the final battle of the game.
** Both he and Sephiroth wear trenchcoats with no shirt underneath (though Sephiroth wears what looks like a leather daddy harness), making every scene a shirtless scene for them. Their final boss forms just take it a step farther.
** On the side of good, Sora does as the natives do when in Atlantica and loses the shirt along with his legs when he becomes a merman. It's the one redeeming point of [[ScrappyLevel said level]].
** Ventus is, for some reason, shirtless in his Awakening. It becomes {{Squick}} when you [[FridgeHorror realize]] that Master Xehanort is the one who probably undressed him, and he was [[VagueAge about eleven]].
* The boys of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', save for Auron, don't need shirts or armor to ward off magic attacks or bladed implements! [[spoiler:Oddly enough, the most dressed guy is the undead one, for all the good proper equipment did him!]]
** An especially odd-looking case is Seymour, who wears some sort of robe that is open almost to his crotch, displaying some very bizarre and unsexy tattoos, although this [[FetishFuel is just the icing on the cake to some]].
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 The sequel]] also gives us Brother, who never wears a shirt, and an optional scene features shirtless Buddy getting a massage from a Hypello.
* Snow from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' after suffering a bad injury. Who gets the hyper-detailed rendering mentioned above, and has random freckles, moles, little bumps on his aerolas and erect nipples. Oh, Square, you cocktease.
** It can happen again in ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII''. If you battle his + version, he'll vaporize his shirt halfway through the fight when he uses Depths of Despair. Battle his ++ version, and it's gone before the fight even starts.
* ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 3: Dante's Awakening'' begins with Dante shirtless and just coming out of the shower. He remains shirtless for the first stage, and you can unlock an alternate costume that lets you play the entire game with this character model.
** In the reboot, ''DmCDevilMayCry'', Dante one-ups ''3'' by being [[FullFrontalAssault completely nude]] at the beginning, though we only see from his hips up and his calves in any detail. And say what you wish about his personality, but his body is very nice.
* The title character from ''PrinceOfPersia: The Sands of Time'' begins the game fully dressed and apparently wearing some sort of leather armour. As the game progresses, his clothing is torn off or used for bandages bit by bit until he is just wearing his pants.
** Additionally, the bulk of ''The Two Thrones'' is just one long shirtless scene.
* Gage/Trak from ''AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin'' ''constantly'' goes shirtless. [[TroubledButCute Under a leather jacket]]. He also has [[AnimeHair blue hair]], [[TheStoic is aloof and near-mute]], and is a {{bishonen}}.
* At the end of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', Liquid -- who spends most of the game wandering around, outside, without a shirt, in the ''middle of Alaska'' -- removes Solid Snake's shirt. This is because Snake's padded sneaking suit functions as armor, maybe not so much to bullets but certainly against hands and feet.
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' gives the player the option to take Naked Snake's shirt off at any time for no reason at all (you're even penalised for doing it, since it increases Snake's stamina-drain rate and reduces his resistance to colds, parasites, and bullets). The player does get a funny line or two about it when Snake puts in a call on his radio while half-naked.
** Raiden in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'' goes far beyond shirtless with his full on nude scene, {{Scenery Censor}}ed all the while, near the end off the game.
** Then there are the standard torture scenes of mandatory shirtlessness that occur at the rate of at least once per installment of MGS.
** Not to mention the final boss battle of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'' is [[spoiler:[[{{Squick}} an old men's fistfight with a shirtless Liquid Ocelot]], although he ''is'' ripped]].
** The start of ''Metal Gear Solid'' had a beautiful briefing scene with Snake perched on a bed, naked, genitals obscured only by [[CensorSteam a convenient shadow]]. The VideoGameRemake upped the ante significantly -- the scene is redone in glorious [[MotionCapture fully-animated polygons]] and the player is given the option to [[MaleGaze control the camera angle freely]], and, while Snake is now wearing underwear, it's a pair of [[BlackBraAndPanties really skintight black shorts]] that [[TheissTitillationTheory leave absolutely nothing to the imagination]]. He spends the scene going from one "sexy" pose to another, randomly parading his body around [[YouCanLeaveYourHatOn like a male stripper]] for ''no reason''. The best part is when he inexplicably rests his forearms and chest on the edge of the bed while standing at the side of it, keeping his legs straight, thus thrusting his [[ThongOfShielding barely-clad buttocks]] in the air for no discernible reason beyond fanservice, ''while he is asking pertinent questions about the story''. It's so extreme it's close to {{Narm}}, and it's not aided by the fact that all the dialogue is extremely businesslike, providing an odd kind of MoodDissonance.
** In ''Metal Gear Solid 4'', Snake does a FanDisservice ShirtlessScene for Naomi. (Un)fortunately, even wrinkled skin, liver spots, [[FanNickname Ugly Pants]], unflattering lighting, sad music and Naomi being moved to tears by his ugliness really did not counter the fact that he still has a killer figure. Possibly intentional, knowing the director.
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPortableOps'' had Big Boss do like Raiden and get stripped completely naked by his captors. Unfortunately, thanks to the sketchy art style of the cutscenes, you can't make out much.
*** He also has shirtless scenes (with pants on) in the beginning and ending.
** The highlight of the trailer for ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' is Big Boss, taking off his shirt. [[MemeticMutation While training his men]]. On the beach. In the rain. WITH A SNAKE-SHAPED SCAR! ''IN SLOW-MO!''
*** [[FetishRetardant In the PSP's blocky graphics.]]
* Link in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' strips down to his skivvies during his sumo training. He's ''ripped'' under that tunic.
** His opponent, however, is '''''not'''''.
* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' gives players the option to dress CJ however they wish... that includes stripping him to his underpants for a nearly completely nude shootout with cops and rival gangsters! Is the block hot or is it just me?
** Similarly, Brucie in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'' spends about half of his scenes with no shirt on.
* The players can dress characters of either gender in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' in whatever they please or in as little as they please...and I do mean [[{{Crossdresser}} whatever!]] (Okay, so human females get the perma-bra treatment there.) The hero can take down BigBad Dagoth Ur in nothing but a gauntlet and what look to be burlap undies. Now that's mightiness!
** In fact, Dagoth Ur himself doesn't wear much other than a loincloth and an Aztec mask. Again, though, the low polygon count detracts from the FanService.
** Don't forget everyone's favorite improbably ripped old bald guy, Caius Cosades.
* In ''VideoGame/DreamfallTheLongestJourney'', the very first look the player gets of Kian the Apostle is in a ShirtlessScene pitting him against other burly shirtless men. Note that only the playable male character is introduced this way. Zoe is in her underpants, though.
* Ramsus, a [[WhiteHairBlackHeart white-haired villain]] from ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'', apparently sleeps in speedos.
** With a nekkid Miang in the bed behind him. Wonder what they were up to...
* ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' might be known for its {{stripperiffic}} ladies, but there's plenty of {{fanservice}} for those who prefer outies. Sub-Zero. [[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 MK 3]]. Yum.
** For the furries, try Reptile's alternate costume in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance'', called "Jungle Man". He wears little more than a loincloth and a skull-shaped chest plate.
* ''T'ai Fu: Wrath of the Tiger'' is a PS1 game where the main character is a shirtless male kung-fu tiger. Most of the characters in the game are shirtless males, some more built than others.
** Meanwhile, females are a rarity in this game, appearing only as a boss character or two.
* It is possible, in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', to complete a mini-quest that gives you swimsuit outfits for four members of the party. Involving no shirts for the guys, of course.
** Except for the one that would look best shirtless. Regal gets no love.
*** Regal's default outfit is [[BareYourMidriff a belly shirt]]. He's not hurting for {{fanservice}}.
*** Also, they fixed that in TheAnimeOfTheGame: one episode shows a flashback of Regal swimming in a ''speedo''.
** What about Kratos? He doesn't even GET a swimsuit outfit ..!
*** If Kratos were shirtless, your console would explode from the sexy. So, it's not because they don't love us, it's because our technology can't handle it.
** Also worth noting that all VideoGame/{{Tales|OfTheAbyss}} [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia games]] [[VideoGame/TalesOfGraces following]] [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia this]] have optional swimsuit costumes. So...this happens a lot. In fact when Richard from ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' ''doesn't'' get a swimsuit it's {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by the resident {{Troll}} who explains that Richard swims in his royal regalia. [[BlatantLies Sure.]]
* In the ''VideoGame/BloodyRoar'' games, several fighters go shirtless. For the furries (talking only about Beast forms from here on), Yugo and Gado go shirtless in most (all, in Gado's case) of their costumes in the first game. Yugo has an open vest in Beast form in the second game, but still no shirt, and Beast form Bakuryu goes shirtless. Gado keeps his clothes on, however. After the second game, Yugo keeps his clothes on, but Shenlong now goes shirtless, and Reiji, who's shirtless in both Human AND Beast forms, comes into play.
* When {{Capcom}} released ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' snapshots, how much do you want to bet one of those featured [[http://www.court-records.net/arts/080730gemaga_gssnap01.jpg shirtless Edgeworth]]?
* The Krauser boss fight in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4''. At the start of the battle, he is wearing only a bandolier (on account of Leon slicing a bit of his shirt open in an earlier cutscene, and him inexplicably opting to ditch the said shirt as opposed to bearing with the tiny tear), and as the fight progresses, he ends up losing the bandolier for no real reason as well. Basically, the whole fight is a strip show.
** [[spoiler:There is also a brief gratuitous shirtless Wesker scene in VideoGame/ResidentEvil5 in the last boss battle against him, albeit his bare chest is overcome by the gross tendrils of the Uroburous virus a few seconds thereafter.]]
* ''NoMoreHeroes'' gives you the option to have Travis shirtless, and you can [[AndYourRewardIsClothes unlock shirtless with tattoo after beating the game]]. Strangely you don't have the option to go around with no jacket. The sequel allows you to [[AndYourRewardIsClothes unlock the option]] to go jacketless, but the closest you get to shirtless is [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment a T-shirt with a shirtless chest printed on it]].
* ''FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn]]'' has a nice, lengthy ShirtlessScene during a flashback sequence from one of the last characters one would have expected to get one. [[spoiler:The Black Knight a.k.a. Zelgius, who also surprisingly turns out to be quite a Bishonen under all of that armor.]]
** Not to mention Volug, who, due to the wonder of static portraits, is essentially shirtless throughout the entire game. The fact that he's a mysterious loner and a wolf-man makes it easy to see why the series' female fans swoon over him. [[http://www.feplanet.net/media/gallery/8/orugh.jpg Just look at him.]]
* [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Romancing]] [[NiceGuy Jacob]] [[OnlySaneMan Taylor]]? [[MemeticMutation Heavy risk.]] [[ShirtlessScene But the priiiize]]...
** Just about every major male character gets one at some point. Kaidan after both his ''Mass Effect'' and ''Mass Effect 3'' sex scenes, James in the "Citadel" DLC, Male Shepard himself in every romance....
* In ''InfiniteSpace'', Lord Roth first appears on-screen while wearing nothing but his underwear.
* The royalty of Ayuthay in ''GoldenSunDarkDawn'', justified since it's an oasis kingdom and [[WordOfGod near the blistering-hot Lamakan Desert]]. Amiti puts on a shirt at the party's request when he joins the crew, and later takes offense when Eoleo [[LampshadeHanging makes a smart remark]] about someone from Ayuthay "actually wearing clothes".
* In ''OddworldStrangersWrath'', Stranger gets one [[spoiler:when he is captured and his clothes are cut off, exposing him as the Steef]].
* Any RPG that allows you to strip your male party members down, really.
* Besides sex scenes, ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has a few...
** Waking up after Ostagar (though you don't see much).
** Imprisoned in Fort Drakon.
** In the Gauntlet. (In all three cases, the women are in bra and panties and the men are in undies...though [[TheAlcoholic Oghren]] in his underoos is definitely FanDisservice.
** Sadly averted in the sequel though, unless you strip your male Hawke. Though you do get to see the female equivalent of [[FetishFuel Merrill in a corset]] if you romance her...
* Well, temporarily in ''VideoGame/BrainDead13'': If Lance can't make a choice of either a shave, manicure or facial quick enough, Vivi will quickly hold his head to her side and pull down both his spider web barber cloth and his shirt, exposing not just his neck, but also his bare chest and his man nipples (!), [[VampiricDraining before taking a bite and draining him of blood]]!
* Garcia begins ''VideoGame/ShadowsOfTheDamned'' shirtless, grabbing his leather jacket just before he jumps into the portal to Hell.
* If you could actually count this as a game, then there's John in the beginning scene of VisualNovel/PlumbersDontWearTies, right up until he gets on his motorcycle.
* The developers of the PC series ''VideoGame/DarkTales'' announced in advance that in the fifth game, MrFanservice Auguste Dupin would have a shirtless scene. The fangirls rejoiced. Unfortunately, what they ''didn't'' announce was that [[spoiler:said shirtless scene would come at the cost of ''Dupin being shot in the chest'', and the player character has to cut away the shirt in order to tend the wound. He does get better, though, and he's got what looks like a nice build under his Victorian fashion sense.]]
