Goofy Print Underwear: Video Games
Boxers with red/pink hearts
  • Sir Arthur's traditional garb in Ghosts N Goblins once his armor breaks (though according to official artwork, they're strawberries — see below). In one game, he switches instead to long johns.
    • Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is the only game in which he's clearly wearing heart boxers in the in-game graphics.
    • The Spiritual Successor Maximo: Ghosts to Glory also has heart boxers as part of the game-long Homage, with other prints available for purchase. The sequel, Maximo Versus the Army Of Zin, expands this, giving the title character the ability to change boxers to get additional powers (like the ability to get an extra level of armor).
  • In King's Quest VII, the Werebear is left in these after jackalope!Valanice blows off his fur and pants.
  • In Quest for Glory II, while sleeping at the Inn in Raseir, the hero can be seen wearing these when his blanket is pulled off by a rat.
  • Larry Laffer wears them in Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded when Fawn ties him to the bed in the Honeymoon Suite.
    • In the previous version of the same game, they were polka-dot instead. (And in the original version, they didn't have a print.)
  • In WarioWare: Smooth Moves, one of the missions has Wario defend himself from a ninja. You must slash at the right time to tear off the ninja's suit. But wait, there's more... (scroll down...)
  • Available for purchase at Binco in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
  • In Spyro the Dragon, the large Gnorcs in Gnorc Cove who defend themselves with barrels are left in these and a tank top after you blow off their protective clothing.
  • In Rocket Knight Adventures (and the recent 2.5D revival, Rocket Knight), these seem to be part of the uniform for the pig soldiers of the Devotindos Empire.
  • In Mickey Mania, the final boss Pete wears these (just like in the cartoon the level is based on). The dagger-throwing weasel guards in the same level wear pink polka dots instead.
  • Chuck Greene's default boxers in Dead Rising 2.
  • These are an underwear option in Saints Row.
  • These can be seen flying out of destroyed luggage in Angry Birds Rio.
  • As an Idle Animation, Earthworm Jim's pants will drop, revealing these. Don't ask why a robotic suit has underwear.
  • In Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, several of Crash's death sequences reveal his pink boxers with red hearts. In one, he doesn't actually die, he's just too embarrassed to go on.
    • In Warped, when Crash completes an underwater level, his boxers float away along with his diving gear. (It's because it's the same animation as when he dies from hitting a mine.)
    • In the Gag Reel of Crash Tag Team Racing, they're white with red hearts instead.
  • There's a cheat in Ground Control called "frommassivewithlove", which will change explosions to hearts and fiddle a bit with the units' textures. It will give this underwear to Marine units.
  • Player of Retro City Rampage has a pair, as seen when he's sleeping.

Other-print boxers
  • In Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, if you shoot the Wizard enemy with the Fruit Bazooka (or attack him by any method in the PAL version), he'll be reduced to white boxers with pink polka-dots. This pacifies him.
  • In Punch-Out Wii, King Hippo has upgraded to star-print boxers.
  • The Soviet Premier in the Allied ending of Red Alert 2 is found hiding under a desk wearing boxers with a red "Hammer and sickle" print motif (He had dressed a decoy in his uniform).
  • In the character videos in F-Zero GX, Antonio Guster and Blood Falcon strip down to their boxers (camouflage and pink with ... something, respectively) when doing their laundry. In Captain Falcon's video, he splits his pants while saving a baby, revealing red polka-dots.
  • In another WarioWare: Smooth Moves example, one game has a quick draw contest to shoot your opponent's pants down. Your avatar is wearing Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, and Starman boxers.
    • Wario himself has trouble keeping his pants up on the map screen.
  • In the Metal Slug series, the Prisoners Of War reward you for rescuing them by pulling a giant pair of blue-and-white-striped boxers out of their pants and dispensing an item from them.
    • Also, when the Mars People betray General Morden in Metal Slug 2/X and 3, they strip him to his undies. In 2/X, they're pink bikini briefs; in 3, polka-dot shorts.
  • Agent Smith in the Hitman games is often seen wearing boxer shorts printed with the US Flag.
  • While merchandise and cameos often depict Arthur as wearing heart boxers (as noted above), official artwork has always put strawberries on his boxers instead. In Ultimate Ghosts N Goblins, these strawberries were visible in-game for the first time.
    • In Marvel vs. Capcom 3, every one of Arthur's costumes gives him different boxers, with strawberries as the default. His alternates are blue and white vertical stripes, green with white polka dots, and gold with black stars.
    • Arthur wears vertically striped boxers in the obscure Wonderswan game (which also appear in one of his alternate outfits in MvC3).
    • As mentioned above, Maximo can acquire a variety of different boxers in his games, including monogrammed, cow-spotted, and dollar signs. In the second game, each print gives a different bonus.
  • In RosenkreuzStilette Freudenstachel, Grolla's heavily Ghosts N Goblins-themed stage includes Skeletal Knights that resemble Arthur, including armor that breaks off in one hit and strawberry-print boxers.
  • While monsters in Dragon Quest VIII don't wave any about when they do the move, Yangus pulls out two pairs of blue-and-white striped boxers when he performs the Underpants Dance move. For understandable reasons, this causes the Confusion status ailment.
  • Spyro: A Hero's Tail has Gnasty Gnorc reveal his red polka-dot boxers when he's goaded into swinging so hard that his staff/club sticks into the ground. More humiliating is the fact that this is his weak point.
  • In the ending of the PC version of Mario is Missing!, the de-shelled Bowser is shown to wear red polka-dot boxers. Don't even begin to ask how that's supposed to work.
  • Vincent from Catherine spends the puzzle sections of the game in nothing but his polka-dot boxers (with the exception of stage 8, the Cathedral).
  • In one Solatorobo 4koma, Red is embarrassed that Chocolat is showing off the Asmodeus while his boxers are hanging to dry. One is white with a single red heart, the other is white with yellow stars. Another piece of official art shows a pair of blue-and-white striped boxers landing on Elh's head, but precisely whose they are is never said.
  • At the end of the first level of Plok, Plok finds a pair of polka-dot boxers instead of the flag he was looking for.
  • In Space Quest 5, Roger Wilco winds up hanging from a cliff on Thrakus with Beatrice clinging to his belt. If you don't help her up fast enough, his pants slide down, revealing polka-dot boxers.
  • The hermit crab enemies in Cool Spot are wearing polka-dot boxers under their shells, as seen when you shoot said shells off.
  • The clown boss in Glover has polka-dot boxers under his baggy pants, which slip down each time you hit him.
  • In Normality, Norm 2782 is left in his polka-dot boxers after protagonist Kent Knudson takes his uniform for a disguise (and doesn't give it back when he's done with it). Norm 2782 finally gets his clothes back in the ending cutscene.

Other men's underwear
  • The mini-boss Jukid in Kirby Super Star is wearing polka-dot . . . underwear of some sort. It's hard to get more specific since he has no legs.
  • The Bokoblins in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword have a predilection for "fashionable undergarments" . . . "fashionable" here meaning leopard print.
  • Raikov gets stripped down to his thunderthong (a lightning-bolt printed leather thong) in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
  • The first boss of The Simpsons Arcade game's pants will drop if he is left alone, revealing pink sparkly briefs.
  • At the end of Crash: Mind Over Mutant, Cortex fights Crash in his red polka-dot briefs after he hulks out of his clothes.
  • In the opening scene of Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail (the other Chained to a Bed scene in the series), Larry is wearing leopard-print briefs.
  • The Final Boss of Smash TV combines Mutoid Man (the first boss) with the M.C. of the game show. Rather than exposing his ribcage (as with Mutoid Man previously), shooting his chest reveals a pink polka dot undershirt.

Childish women's underwear
  • As mentioned before, in a WarioWare game, you must defend yourself from a ninja. Well, on the easy difficulty, the ninja costume falls off to reveal boxers. On the medium difficulty, the boxers fall off to reveal briefs. And on the third difficulty... the ninja is wearing pink panties. Really.
  • In Super Robot Wars Original Generation, when Seolla axe-kicked Arado for making yet another boob-joke on her, she ends up revealing to Russel, of all people... her teddie bear panties.
  • They're never shown, but it's confirmed by Juliet herself in Lollipop Chainsaw that she's wearing her 'lucky zombie-fighting underwear', which is panties with teddy bears or hearts on them.
