[[caption-width-right:236:No, you can't [[IncrediblyLamePun tinker her bells]].]]

->''"You're a... you're a complex Freudian hallucination having something to do with my mother and I don't know why you have wings, but you have very lovely legs and you're a very nice tiny person and what am I saying..."''
-->-- '''[[Creator/RobinWilliams Peter]]''', ''Film/{{Hook}}''

A particular form of OurFairiesAreDifferent, namely a pixie that's young, female and attractive. Doesn't generally [[{{Stripperiffic}} wear too many clothes]], sometimes just [[GardenGarment leaves or flower petals]]. If the fairy is far smaller than human, FridgeLogic may ensue.

The trope has at least some historical basis going back to GreekMythology, where just about every Nymph was MsFanservice.



[[folder:Multiple Media]]
* Disney's cashing in on the sexy Tinker Bell thing with the ''Franchise/DisneyFairies'' spinoff.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Cham Hau and her Mi Ferario sisters in ''AuraBattlerDunbine''.
* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Puck and Evarella, the {{Fairy Companion}}s of Guts and Schierke respectively, are very much this. Interestingly, the male elf, Puck, is practically naked (though he [[BarbieDollAnatomy lacks genitals]]), whereas Evarella has something of a skirt to hide her womanly parts.
** Subverted by Rosine, who first appears as this. However, she isn't actually an elf but [[OurDemonsAreDifferent an Apostle]], and once she goes OneWingedAngel, what started as FanService [[PowerUpgradingDeformation turns into]] FanDisservice.
* Elea, [[ProjectedMan Projected Girl]] in ''{{Blassreiter}}'', though her style is more "imp" than "fairy".
* Lilymon in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', as well as [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Kazemon/Fairymon]] and Ranamon (who's based on a water nymph) in ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' There's also Lilamon from ''Anime/DigimonSavers''.

* Luis Royo's painting "Wings of Dreams" (contained in the art book ''Malefic'') shows a nude fairy (riding a rat and menaced by a snake) with the caption "The story of snowy days, or fairies and moons. A place where long ears don't reduce the size of breasts, where butterfly wings don't force legs closed, where moonlight doesn't weaken a sensuous look and where danger doesn't wake up fear but challenge."
* A lot of [[http://www.strangeling.com/fairyart1.html Jasmine Becket-Griffith's work]] invokes this.


[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Tatl Beryllia in ''Fanfic/TheBlueBlurOfTermina''.
* While Navi looked like just a [[SparkFairy little ball of bluish light]] with wings in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', many artists have pictured her as having light-blue skin, hair, and eyes, and is often [[BarbieDollAnatomy safely]] nude.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' has lengthy segments of tiny, [[BarbieDollAnatomy (non-detailed)]] nude fairies who bring dew, Autumn, and frost during the Nutcracker suite.
* Crysta from ''FernGully''.
* ''Disney/PeterPan'': Tinker Bell. Since it was a [[ValuesDissonance different day]], her first appearance lacked a MagicSkirt.
* The Blue Fairy from ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' is a slender fair-skinned blonde that wears an elegant glittery blue dress. When she offers the position of conscience to Jiminy Cricket he is somewhat dumbstruck by her beauty.
* The Tooth Fairy from ''RiseOfTheGuardians''. Not in the traditional sense, but fans agree that her design is very beautiful.
* An obscure animated movie called ''TheMagicVoyage'' had a Moon Fairy named Marilyn who fits this trope.
* Every fairy, male or female, in ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'' is [[GenericCuteness fairly attractive]] except for their king, who is a case of {{Adipose Rex}}.
* The movie ''[[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry Tom and Jerry]]'s Giant Adventure'' feature [[WesternAnimation/RedHotRidingHood Red]] as a sexy fairy.
* Elinore from ''WesternAnimation/{{Wizards}}'', who is ditzy and the size of a full-grown human.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The Ghost of Christmas Past in the 2004 film musical of ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'' has this appearance.
* The Green Fairy Absinthe from ''MoulinRouge''. Indeed, most depictions of the Green Fairy fall under this -- but ''Moulin Rouge!'' has Music/KylieMinogue. Who is briefly voiced by Music/OzzyOsbourne.
* ''{{Narnia}}'': In the [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0363771/ 2005 film]] version, dryads can only become visible as blowing leaves, flower petals, etc., but they often take the shape of sexy humanoids wearing nothing but the petals.
* ''PeterPan'': Tinker Bell.
** 2003 ''Film/PeterPan'', as played by Ludivine Sagnier.
** The 1991 film ''Film/{{Hook}}'' too, played by Creator/JuliaRoberts.

* [[http://ww2.wizards.com/Books/mirrorstone/Article.aspx?doc=fr_spinayarn2004main Laughing Sisters]], barmaids and FanService in Bloody Fist tavern, [[ForgottenRealms Waterdeep]]. They also help deal with "problem customers". And always giggle.
* Holly Black's ''Literature/ModernFaerieTales'' series portrays many types of faeries as much more beautiful than mortals -- if a little bit inhuman-looking along with it.
* Holly from ''Literature/ArtemisFowl''.
* A male example: Tybalt, the Cait Sidhe king from Seanan [=McGuire=]'s ''Literature/OctoberDaye'' series, definitely falls into this category and almost always appears in tight leather pants.
* [[TheLancer Applecore]] in ''TheWarOfTheFlowers''. Theo is somewhat disturbed when people ask if they're together, and to learn that the size difference can apparently be resolved through (magical) surgery.
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' describes most Fae as being of unearthly beauty. Even the ones you could step on. Harry's buddy Toot-Toot is just as beautiful as the Lords of Faerie, just scaled down to about six inches. The small fae are never described in any sexual terms, but the human-sized ones like Maeve, Lea, Aurora and Mab are an entirely different story.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': [[ChivalrousPervert Dean]] is attacked by a fairy (one too small for the audience to see) and gets {{distracted| by the sexy}} for a couple of seconds when he realizes it's a "tiny naked lady".
* All the fairies of ''Series/OnceUponATime'' have been played by attractive young women.
** The [[Literature/{{Pinocchio}} Blue Fairy]]'s outfit contains AbsoluteCleavage. Although, while in Storybrooke, the fairies' human personas are nuns, so they dress more conservatively, even after regaining their memories and power.
** Tinker Bell wears a short green dress similar to the one in [[Disney/PeterPan Disney's animated version]] of ''Peter Pan''.

* The butterfly fairy from ''Pinball/{{Farfalla}}'', who's wearing nothing but a gossamer robe and a smile.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', as explained [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fey_(Dungeons_&_Dragons) here]].
** In [=AD&D=] 2nd Ed. Sylph was [[http://www.coryj.net/CoreRule/corerule.php?page=DD03634.htm summonable]] "elemental-kin". AlwaysFemale, as they reproduce by laying eggs, and what hatches from these are always one more female sylph.
* A common trait of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Fairest]] from ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost''. All changelings are shaped by the purposes for which they were used while they were in Arcadia, and the Fairest are those changelings who were made to satisfy the aesthetic or sexual whims of their Fae masters. As a result, even those Fairest who started out unattractive will come out the other side looking quite pretty... although whether you consider that a good thing [[BlessedWithSuck depends on your perspective.]]
** Many other changelings are similarly warped by their Durance, coming out of Arcadia looking significantly different from how they did when they entered. Sometimes, it results in this trope, but other times, [[TheGrotesque not so much.]]
* The [[TheFairFolk raksha]] of ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' can reshape their physical forms at will, which means they'll usually give themselves the sexiest body they can manage (assuming they're [[EldritchAbomination not trying to scare you,]] at least). This satisfies their famously enormous egos, while also making [[EvilIsSexy a great lure for drawing mortals close]] [[HorrorHunger to feed on.]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Pixies in ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games tend to be depicted like this ([[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/megamitensei/images/5/59/PixieSMT3.jpg an example]], from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne''). This is to help emphasize how they're among the few supernatural creatures not likely to rip your throat out the instant they see you.
* The Great Fairies from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' wear ridiculously little clothing -- they're more wrapped up in vines than anything else. Though to some players, they come off as more [[UncannyValley cre]][[NightmareFuel/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime epy]] than sexy...
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', the "attractive young Great Fairies" return (after being replaced in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap'' by more abstract-looking fairies), but instead of vine-clothing, they have GodivaHair, a much higher polygon count, and no creepy voice.
** The fairies in the earlier, 2D games weren't particularly detailed, but could qualify (especially if the art's anything to go by).
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Ys}} Ys: The Ark of Napishtim]]'' has [[http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/1909/ys6ps21.jpg Crevia]].
* Most of the female summons in ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games, particularly the more animalistic Shiva and Siren from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''.
* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX'''s Stella/Sandy, who's also a ValleyGirl.
* ''GuardiansCrusade'': Nehani.
* Both the fairies seen in ''VideoGame/RecettearAnItemShopsTale'', to varying degrees.
* Pixie monsters from ''VideoGame/MonsterRancher''.
* Dytto, the elemental spirit of water in ''VideoGame/BeyondOasis''/''The Story of Thor'' for Genesis.
* [[FantasticNightDreamsCotton Cotton]]'s fairy companion.
* The fairy that gives you extra lives in ''VideoGame/RodLand''.
* Betilla the Nymph and her sisters in ''VideoGame/RaymanOrigins'', [[ExaggeratedTrope who have large breasts and ridiculously wide hips that swivel every time you save one of them]].
* Memim and Sue in ''Jikkyou Oshaberi VideoGame/{{Parodius}}''.
* The pixies in ''Videogame/ShiningTheHolyArk'' generally show a lot of skin. The Pixie is in what seems like a skin-tight swimsuit. The Succubus likes to show off her ass. While the Incubus provides some eye-candy for the ladies. Also the Queen of the pixies shows a lot of cleavage.
* [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dc_-_tiki_9107.jpg Tiki]] and the rest of her kin in ''VideoGame/DragonsCrown'' fall into this by virtue of every single one of them being [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of Tinkerbell and her fairy friends. Tiki especially; the only outward differences between her and Tinkerbell is that Tiki has GirlishPigtails and is drawn by [[Creator/{{Vanillaware}} George Kamitani]], which means her physical features are more pronounced.
* Nvidia's ''Dawn'' and ''Dusk'' tech demos. [[SarcasmMode Sure you're just running them to see what your graphics card is capable of...]]
* The Fairy's in ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper 2'', who are way sexier than the in the first game.
* ''VideoGame/{{Stormlord}}''[='s=] fairies are naked blondes with wings.
* Franchise/{{Pokemon}}: Gardevoir and Florges.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* The NSFW ''Bloomin' Faeries!'' relies on [[EverybodyHasLotsOfSex the increasingly kinky hijinks]] of a mischievous fairy who wears (at most) a long loincloth, ThighHighBoots, and a halter that barely contains [[ImpossibleHourglassFigure her head-sized breasts]]. When other fairies appear, they wear variants of the same costume.
* ''{{Homestuck}}'': Vriska convinces boy skylark Tavros to make a stand for daring and derring do, don his plucky "Pupa Pan" costume and fly to fight the horror awaiting [[spoiler: which turns out to be her waiting in a skimpy fairy costume. At this point he falls into her web and her black widow motif goes UpToEleven.]]
* Celia from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' is a human-sized fairy called a "[[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0617.html Sylph]]". She's [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0268.html elemental]]-kin rather than fairy, even though in [=OotS=] sylphs [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0269.html aren't]] AlwaysFemale. Also, there are [[ElementalRockPaperScissors her cousins]]: [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0051.html Earth]] counterpart (though she doesn't looks like Pech) who was just quietly offed, and [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0532.html Fire]] who was killed off-screen. Celia was "lucky" enough to be "only" petrified.
* The Best Fairy Ever, in ''Webcomic/AxeCop''. She's dating Sockarang, who has to spend a lot of time brewing growth potions for her.
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', the attractiveness of Nanase's fairy doll avatar is used to [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp/?date=2004-04-20 increase sales]] at the comicbook shop and on a meta level [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook/?date=2008-05-16 as fanservice]].
* Tinkerbell yet again in ''Webcomic/CheshireCrossing'', or at least Peter seems to think so thanks to suddenly having puberty thrust upon him. [[spoiler: She [[BigDamnKiss reciprocates enthusiastically]].]] As for [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction the problem of scale?]] This is a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover which includes ''Alice In Wonderland'', so there are workarounds.
* In ''Webcomic/TheWolfAtWestonCourt'' Elgin finds the Faeries "intriguing" for this reason. On their part, the Faeries don't make an effort to be sexy, but the open-backed clothes must draw attention.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''{{The Legend of Neil}}'' features a fairy played by FeliciaDay in a leaf bikini.
* The various faeries in ''{{Neopets}}''. Not too fanservicey, as it is a site used by kids, but [[ParentalBonus their depictions are still quite good-looking]].
* In ''Literature/TalesOfMU'' it's considered taboo for nymphs to wear any clothing, due to their infamous beauty being considered a gift from nature. Thus, Amaranth runs around stark naked all the time, except for her NerdGlasses. Except when she's in private, wherein she wears clothing for the texture.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* The Tooth Fairy from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''.
* Titania, the Bean Sidhe, and the Lady of the Lake from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''. In the case of Titania, [[WordOFGod Greg Weisman]] is on record stating that 'she's got it, so she flaunts it'.
* Spryte in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda''.
* The Spring Spirit in the ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' episode ''The Four Seasons of Death''. A beautiful slender wood nymph with pale white skin, long flowing hair, almost completely transparent [[{{Stripperiffic}} wisps of cloth covering her lady bits]], and a soft gentle voice provided by Creator/GreyDelisle.
* The girls of ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' both in and out of their fairy forms.
