[[caption-width-right:350:Be grateful he was just in the leg.]]

->'''Ray Kowalski:''' You're empty handed.\\
'''Fraser:''' Yes, but I am not empty trouser-ed.
-->-- ''Series/DueSouth''

Some guy reaches right into his pants. '''Oh, God! He's pulling out'''--well the good news is that it's not ''that''. The bad news is that it's still something you'd rather not see.

Basically a {{Hammerspace}} spot where the sun don't shine. Can be NightmareFuel for some, usually for the characters watching more than the audience.

Women can pull this trick too, with their own... implications about it. Also can be done whether it's pants or a skirt.

When the Trouser Space region is explicitly the character's rectum, then that's an AssShove. When the item retrieved is a gun, then it's a PantsPositiveSafety, and may be part of an ExtendedDisarming.

Not to be confused with MagicPants, or, despite being the trouser version of Hammerspace, [[Music/MCHammer Hammerpants]].

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Al likes to store things in his loincloth. Despite the fact that the loincloth is not actually ''hiding'' anything due to his... metallic nature, it never fails to freak out the people who see it. They usually tell him to stop doing it, but he seems to like the attention.
* One of the demons in ''Manga/WeddingPeach'' pulls a carnival style strength test out of his pants in one episode, actually freaking out his devil master by doing so.
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Ururu turns around, bends over and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/uruushidingplace.gif pulls a bazooka from out her skirt]]. One that's larger than her ''entire body''.
** The Arrancar Pesh keeps his sword [[spoiler:ULTIMAA!]] down the front of his loincloth, and massively [[{{Squick}} squicks]] MadScientist Szayel Aporro Grantz in the process. That's quite an accomplishment, given how disgusting most of what Szayel does is.
* ''Manga/BusouRenkin'''s Papillion has the disturbing tendency to pull whatever item he needs out of his butterfly speedos, ranging from a key to [[spoiler:his kakugane]] to even a second copy of his costume, and of course various copies of his trademark butterfly mask.
** Disturbingly, he seems to have had this habit [and the speedo] since before [[spoiler: he turned into a humanoid homunculus]], as the speedo were under his clothes [[spoiler: pre-transformation]] and the key was clearly in there before the fact as well.
** There might be a ShoutOut here to the book and film ''Papillion'', which includes a lot of detail about storing things via an [[AssShove unpleasant method]].
* In ''Anime/{{Potemayo}}'', Guchuko can store corncobs, snakes and whatnot in her underwear. She also keeps her battle-axe there when she's not using it.
* The titular ''Manga/MysteriousGirlfriendX'' does this with one or two pairs of scissors, but they're more "holstered" than "hidden" in her underwear (or bikini bottom, if it's summer).
* Bulma in ''Manga/DragonBall'' once hid a very large diamond in her panties--leaving no visible bulge, which has made some of the more dirty-minded readers wonder exactly where it was kept. In fact, in the manga, Krillin says he can "tell by the smell where you hid it!"
** Which is weird, because he once beat a smelly opponent due to his lack of a nose (though he assumed he could smell Bacterian in the past oddly)
** Another (slightly more innocent) version has Krillin saying "It doesn't smell at all" while seeming somewhat surprised. Bulma replies "Why should it?"
* In ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', Italy has pulled at least once a pair of boxers... out from his own pair.
* Shuichi in the ''Manga/{{Gravitation}}'' manga apparently keeps an important photo Yuki gave him close to, uh, his important member. This causes an awkward moment when Yuki, who wants to fully explain the significance of the photo to him, has to stuff his hand down his pants to retrieve it.
* Excel from ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' does this on episode 22.
* An amateur filmmaker in ''Anime/{{Planetes}}'', making a movie on a space station without authorization, has all of his equipment confiscated, and has to resort to a backup camera he stored in his pants.
* In the first episode of ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'', the strap on Millie's "stun gun" breaks and it falls on the floor from where it's concealed. She's wearing a very voluminous cloak and later on she's revealed to be wearing a shirt, tie, and slacks underneath, but it's nonetheless a rather alarming sight. Not least because what she terms a "stun gun" is the size of a minigun that fires ammo which appears to have been made on the assumption that the "stun" they were shooting for was "clobber into submission".
* In the G8 filler of ''Manga/OnePiece'', Luffy hid the inflatable octopus from Skypiea in his pants. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDiLLZXZCu8 Everyone was confused.]]
-->'''Zoro''': Didn't it feel funny down there?\\
'''Luffy''': Down where?
** Oda also confirmed in an SBS that Franky stores tools in his speedo.
%%* ''SexyCommando''
* In one chapter of ''Manga/DeathNote'', Mello was depicted stashing his gun down the front of his pants as he left his meeting with Near. This bit (likely understandably) didn't make it into the anime adaptation.
** Though the anime team did choose to actually depict just where Light stashed Misa's Death Note when he had to "hold" it. In the manga, it was implied he strapped it to himself with a corset. In the anime, well... [[http://deathnotefansite.deviantart.com/art/Death-Note-Lights-Hiding-Place-257199331]]
*** It's the place to keep your ArtifactOfDoom WeaponOfMassDestruction!
* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', a Zeon soldier captured in White Base criticized his captors for not making a proper cavity search before taking out a piece of metal from his mouth and a cord from inside his pants.
** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'''s Heero Yuy occasionally keeps a handgun tucked into the rear waistband of his [[SensualSpandex spandex shorts]]. Considering the [[YaoiFangirl fandom]] the series attracted, one can imagine [[AssShove the jokes that were made]] before this was revealed.
* ''Manga/BlackButler II'': In episode 7 Hannah pulls a rather large gatling gun from her skirt.
* ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'': Haruko seems to be able to fit her Rickenbacker bass guitar inside her underwear. That, a giant boxing glove on a spring [[note]] A reference to the below mentioned ''Franchise/LupinIII'' [[/note]] and who knows what else...
* [[Anime/PuniPuniPoemi Poemi]] roots around in the front of her skirt for rather a long time, with her arm rather far in, before she pulls out her pager.
* ''Manga/{{Kochikame}}'': Special Detective Kitano who only wears a speedo and equipped with sidearms always pulls a banana from down there to eat and also carries around his cell phone and other items.
* ''Franchise/LupinIII'' likes to hide some of his back-up gadgets in his boxers. Sometimes, his boxers ''are'' the back-up gadget.
** ''Anime/LupinIIICrisisInTokyo'' features Lupin pulling a yo-yo out of his boxers at one point.
* In ''Anime/CrayonShinChan'', Nene/Penny several times stores plush animals in her dress, including Happiness Bunny--even a huge pile of them bigger than she is--without any visible indications. This is lampshaded once when her friends told her they could tell by how she walked like she was constipated.
* ''LightNovel/AmagiBrilliantPark'': To all appearances, it's where Isuzu Sento keeps her enchanted musket, Steinberger.

[[folder: Comic Books ]]
* In the first part of "The Tape" story, ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} wound up stuffing his special "Amex Black" card (which has no credit limit) down the front of his pants. While interrogating him Madam Masque is disgusted to hear this and is the only one willing to reach in and get it [[spoiler:especially since she's actually Clint's teenage sidekick Kate in disguise]].
* In ''ComicBook/{{Cavewoman}}: Raptorella'' #2, Meriem produces a ''hand grenade'' she somehow had concealed in the bottom of her FurBikini.
* The infamous PantyShot scene during "Collision" sees Comicbook/{{X 23}} sticking a folded-up document in the waistband of her pants, flashing the top of her thong in the process. There's not an unsightly bulge to be seen, despite the fact her pants are practically {{painted on|pants}}.

* In [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/2409341/Ynyr Ynyr's]] [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8438238/ The Cult of Dionysus]], Nymphadora Tonks smuggles prison-escape tools in her "You-Know-What" into Azkaban to spring Harry, Hermione and Luna. She uses her shapeshifting abilities to alter the position of her inner organs to make more room down there (it looked still rather painful). Watching her removing the bag from this orifice gave Harry nightmares til his last day and Hermione vomited from this scene.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9166793/6/My-Lord-Harry-Potter My Lord Harry Potter]]'' Neville gets into a duel with the magical King of America which requires stripping down to their underwear for some unspecified reason. When the king tires of missing Neville with spells and starts shooting at him with a summoned gun, Neville pulls the ''Sword of Gryffindor'' out of his underpants.
* ''Fanfic/TheLoneliestLaundromat'': Either this or VictoriasSecretCompartment is how Sonata gets money after [[stripping down for clothes launder.]]

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'': Yzma hikes up her skirt, saying "I bet you weren't expecting... ''this''!" Pacha and Kuzco are scared at first... and then realize she's just pulling out a vicious-looking dagger, and sigh in relief.
* In ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'', Baby Brent sticks the giant ceremonial scissors for the unveiling of Sardineland down the back of his pants. You can even see the handles stick out as he turns around.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/FernGully'' sequel, a circus performer pulls a fishing pole out of his pants to save his granddaughter.
* At the end of ''WesternAnimation/WereBackADinosaursStory'', Stubbs the Clown hands in his props when he resigns from Prof. Screweyes' circus, and starts pulling [[LongList a bunch of random stuff out of his pants]]. Among the things were a host of traditional pranks like a joy buzzer and a fake OverlyLongTongue, his backstage pass, his rabbit, the rabbit's back stage pass, "a few birds", a lucky whale tooth which was around his size, and "a giant clam that opens to reveal a mermaid holding the American flag and her normal brother Richard!"
* In ''WesternAnimation/DuckTalesTheMovieTreasureOfTheLostLamp'' Dijon makes off with Scrooge's money from his money bin by stuffing it in his pants.
** This is Dijon's standard move for stealing treasure. He does it multiple times in the movie; the money bin incident is just the most notable because his pants are literally bulging with money at that point.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* From ''Film/KissKissBangBang'', Gay Perry pulls a gun from here. It freaks Harry out.
* From ''Film/BlazingSaddles'':
-->'''Bart:''' Excuse me while I whip this out.
-->(reaches into waistline as crowd gasps and screams; Bart pulls out paper, they sigh with relief)
-->(Or was it disappointment?)
* A rare female example in ''Film/BlondieJohnson'' where Blondie's packing a gun up her ... skirt.
* Done with a not ridiculously large object in ''Film/{{Snatch}}'', but still lampshaded and spoofed. At one point two wannabe gangsters are going to turn over a huge diamond to a mob boss in order to get themselves out of trouble with said mob boss. When they're outside the mobster's headquarters, it turns out that the slightly [[TheDitz ditzy]] one has hidden it in TrouserSpace. The Following conversation takes place:
-->'''Sol:''' Well why did you put it down there?
-->'''Vince:''' In case we got mugged.
-->'''Sol:''' You're not from this planet are you, Vincent? Who is gonna mug two black fellas, who're holding pistols, while sitting in a car that's worth less than your shirt?!!
** And then right after this, a different gangster who is after the diamond taps on the window of their car with his [[HandCannon Desert Eagle]]. It turns out TrouserSpace actually keeps the diamond hidden a little longer.
* ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' (1992). Watched by a wide-eyed Mina Harker, Lucy Westenra appears to be reaching into the trousers of her American suitor, saying "Let me touch it; it's so big!" only to remove a huge Bowie knife.
* Lampshaded and parodied in ''Film/LeanOnMe'', where one high school character imitates the Principal's demeanor while unlocking a door. He reaches into his beltline, finds something, and says "ooh, thats not the key".
* ''Film/TheSting''. Johnny Hooker demonstrates trouser space when suggesting that a money courier should hide his money there. [[spoiler: This was a trick. During the demonstration, Hooker switched the courier's money for a wad of plain paper.]]
* ''Film/TheMask'': When the Mask is searched by some policemen, they extract all kinds of crazy stuff from his trouser pockets, including a bazooka ("I have a permit for that") and a framed portrait of the lead detective's wife.
* In ''Film/TropicThunder'', Jeff Portnoy is [[NakedPeopleAreFunny in just his underpants]] during an intense firefight. He reaches into said underpants, and after struggling for a moment [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic pulls out a pistol and fires a bunch of blanks]].
* In ''3 Dev Adam'', Wrestling/ElSanto never '''pulls''' an overly-large object out of his wrestling shorts. However, he does stuff much of Spider-Man's lair into the front of them during his search. {{Lampshaded}} in a review by website ''I-Mockery'' when El Santo carries around ''a'' corpse of Spider-Man, the reviewer comments that El Santo must have ran out of room to stuff him in.
* ''City Heat'' (1984). In the final shootout Creator/ClintEastwood and Burt Reynolds keep producing larger pistols in an attempt to both shoot the mooks and [[CompensatingForSomething one-up each other]]. [[Film/DirtyHarry Clint naturally has the biggest gun]], an [[PhallicWeapon absurdly long-barreled revolver which he pulls out of his trousers]].
* Similarly, In ''Film/{{Batman}}'' SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker pulls an absurdly long-barreled revolver out of the front of his trousers. It's so long that he shouldn't have been able to ''walk'' with that thing down his trouser leg, at least not without a serious limp.
* ''Let's Get Harry'' (1986). A group of construction workers, financed by a gung-ho businessman and advised by a mercenary, go down to Columbia to rescue a colleague. The mercenary, who's given them strict instructions not to try bringing guns into the country, walks into their hotel room, grabs the businessman by the crotch and says, "I want you to give me this." While the others are gaping at this apparent HoYay, the businessman gives a shamefaced grin and produces a 9mm pistol from his underpants.
* ''Film/TheMagicVoyage'': During Christopher Columbus' DreamSequence, he pulls a spyglass out of his nuts.
* In ''Film/{{Versus}}'', one character (shorter than the others, wearing blue jeans, Yakuza) pulls a gun from trouserspace--specifically, from down the seat of his pants. However, the running gag is that his gun keeps getting taken away from him over the course of the movie--and he keeps pulling additional ones from the same spot.
* In ''Film/{{Bowling For Columbine}}'', there is a clip from a video made to sell school administrators on uniforms (and/or metal detectors) [[ExtendedDisarming showing a teenager pulling about half a dozen pistols out of the pockets and waistband of his baggy jeans, what looks like a MAC-11 submachine gun and its separate mag, and finally a shotgun that was in his pants.]] It's not clear how the kid could walk without clanking, let alone nonchalantly with that much metal on him and the shotgun acting like a leg brace.
* ''Film/MagnumForce''. When a pimp is pulled over by a motorcycle cop shortly after he's murdered someone, he tucks a small revolver between his legs, outside his pants rather than inside them. Even then he's [[DidntSeeThatComing taken by surprise]] and [[KillerCop murdered]] before he has a chance to reach for it.
* ''Film/BlackPanther2018''. BlackMarket ArmsDealer Ulysses Klaue is selling a vibranium axe-head to a member of the CIA. He unzips his crotch and takes it from his pants, saying he thought he'd save the money for a suitcase. Bonus points for it being wrapped in paper labelled [[BlatantLies FRAGILE]].
* ''Film/ForcedVengeance'' (1982). An employee denies he's skimming from the casino. Creator/ChuckNorris forces him to take off his pants where he's hiding the money, then walk trouser-less through the casino [[HumiliationConga being laughed at by patrons]].

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels, Nanny Ogg makes a habit of keeping her valuables in her knickers, causing her to turn away and emit all manner of strange twanging noises when she needs to retrieve something.
* In ''Vladimir Mayakovsky'''s "My Soviet Passport" the character gets a passport out of his trousers. The original poem actually said ''"out of my wide trouser-legs"''. The contents of the trousers eventually became a subject for lots of MemeticMutation in Russia.
* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' Jerin keeps his lockpicks there. (Possibly also his ChastityDagger, though he can remove that without too much indecency, apparently).
* ''Literature/{{Serpico}}''. When Serpico is assigned to Vice, he faces the problem of hiding his firearm somewhere a prostitute can't detect when feeling him up as a potential client. So he hid a small automatic in his crotch, because if the hooker touched him there it was legally regarded as an overt sexual act and he could arrest her anyway.
* In ''Cops: Their Lives In Their Own Words'' an undercover policeman relates how he had a small automatic hidden in his jocks, and had to go fishing around for it while a hitman was blasting away at him.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* In an episode of ''Series/TheGoodies'', Tim is shown to be keeping all manner of things in his boxers, including a wad of cash and a Union Jack tea mug.
* A running gag in ''Series/AlloAllo'' was putting things down people's trousers to hide them. This included sausages, money, and rolled-up valuable paintings.
** Also batteries, sticks of dynamite, rolled-up copies of valuable paintings, batteries disguised as sausages, sticks of dynamite disguised as sausages, valuable paintings and copies thereof rolled up and stored inside sausages, the same stored inside baguettes... are we getting the idea, here?
* Gaius Baltar has done this in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}''. Played totally straight, even with a strip search.
* Played magnificently in an episode of ''Series/AllThat'', which featured Baggin' Saggin' Barry, a guy who could pull ''anything'' out of his comically oversized pants. When a similarly abilitied [[TheRival rival]] came into town, he was at first depressed. Then a MagicalNegro told him to "reach down ''deep''". The result? A TrouserSpace contest with his rival, which he won by pulling out ''UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln''.
** His crowning moment came when he missed a flight at the airport because he spent too long failing to get through the metal detector with all that stuff... so he pulled out ''a plane''.
* Bill on ''Series/TheRedGreenShow'' is a master of this trope, constantly pulling things out of "storage space" in his overalls, up to and including a ''whole bicycle''.
** Bicycle, ''nothing''! One time he retrieved an entire vaulting pole from out of there.
** Then there was the one episode where he pulled an axe, a two-man saw, and a "powered" hacksaw out of his pants while attempting to cut down a tree (the last of which actually did the job. Go figure).
* Richie in ''Series/{{Bottom}}'' fit a whole BBC camera in down there.
-->There's plenty of space in my trousers... sadly.
* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode, "The Runaway Bride". Donna is forced to [[LampshadeHanging hang a lampshade]] on how The Doctor manages to carry around a large two-handed R/C controller complete with aerial in his trousers.
---> '''The Doctor''': [[AppliedPhlebotinum Bigger on the inside.]] ''(wink)''
* In the first episode of ''Series/{{Wiseguy}}'', TheMafia is surprised to see an ArmsDealer bring his woman to their meeting. As things go badly we see her casually unbuttoning her skirt (how she does this [[NotDistractedByTheSexy without attracting attention]] is not explained), then she somehow produces an [[CoolGuns Ingram MAC-10]] and starts blazing away. Now admittedly the MAC-10 is quite small for an SMG, but it's still a large chunk of metal to be hiding between your legs while wearing a tight skirt. It's worth noting that this scene was based on a real-life arms deal in which the narrator noticed the women at the meeting were concealing firearms between their legs just from the way they sat down.
* In the episode 6 of ''AlTV'', during an interview with Music/OzzyOsbourne, Music/WeirdAlYankovic recalls that it's just where he's put his bologna sandwich.
* In a season 3 episode of ''Series/DueSouth'', Fraser manages to smuggle files for Ray out of the police station by hiding them in the front of his trousers.
--> Ray Kowalski: You're empty handed.
--> Fraser: Yes, but I am not empty trouser-ed.
** Possibly justified, the jodhpurs probably have enough space for it at least.
* Late night comedian Craig Ferguson made this trope into a RunningGag on his show, first setting up the joke and then using a robotic sidekick named Geoffrey Peterson to deliver the punchline "In your pants!"
* Similarly, "In my pants!" became a running gag of Gilbert Gottfried's for a while on the remade ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares''.
* ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'': Torgo delivers a pizza to Doctor F. and Frank. He starts to get their complimentary 'crazy bread', reaching into his trousers before they holler "NO!!!"
* In an episode of ''Series/BabylonFive'', Sheridan is going to negotiate with a MadBomber and wants to keep a com line open with Garibaldi. He knows that his com link will be visible if it's on his hand as usual, and that the bomber will likely think of checking if he hides it in his shirt. So he drops it down his pants. It works great until he sits on it.
* ''Series/{{Casanova}}'' gets an UnsettlingGenderReveal in more or less this way... [[spoiler: when the young man who he was taking to bed appears to ''remove his own genitals'' and puts a prosthesis in Giacomo's hand. "Hmm. Mine doesn't do that."]]
* ''Series/{{NCIS}}''. Abby, Ziva and Lee have to infiltrate an exclusive nightclub by posing as [=McGee's=] groupies. Ziva tells Lee to get a move on and she snaps back, "I don't know where ''your'' SIG is, but I'm having trouble walking."
* The crew from ''Series/{{Hustle}}'' pull the same trick from ''Film/TheSting'' on a drug dealer at the beginning of the third season.
* In the ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' episode "Alien Invasion", the boys get ready to pull a revenge prank on Megan, and Drake pulls the DVD needed for it out of his jeans.
-->'''Josh:''' You put my copy of ''Alien Attack 2'' down your pants?!
-->'''Drake:''' So?
-->'''Josh:''' So warm!

[[folder: Professional Wrestling ]]
* Since wrestling tights don't have pockets, wrestlers will frequently hide small weapons in the front of their trunks to hide them from the referee. Brass knuckles and bags of "salt" to blind the opponent are the most common, but other things have been done, a lot of props besides weapons in fact. When Chris Masters was doing his "Masterlock Challenge" (offering money to anybody who could break his FinishingMove) he would keep the cash he was offering (and at least once, a plane ticket) in his trunks.
* When Wrestling/ChrisBenoit stole Wrestling/KurtAngle's Olympic medals, he kept them in the front of his tights. Partly for how much it annoyed Kurt Angle, partly for security (although Kurt did actually dive in for them once.)
* At one point, Eric Young was holding onto an important videotape. In order to prevent someone from stealing it, he once wrestled an entire match with the large VHS tape stuck down the front of his tights (and it was as distractingly odd as it sounds.)
* Wrestling/{{Sting}} has pulled his metal baseball bat out of his pants at times. It begs the question of how he was able to walk with it in.
* Chris Angel's manager, El Maestro, does wear pants but "conceals" a particularly long stick on them that obviously can't fit in his pockets. Despite how long it takes to remove and replace after hitting Angel's opponents, the referee didn't catch on.
* After Wrestling/BulletClub [[TraumaticHaircut forcibly shaved]] Wrestling/{{ROH}} World Champion Wrestling/JayLethal in 2016, their chosen challenger Adam Cole kept Lethal's formerly iconic braids in his tights.

[[folder: Tabletop Games ]]
* In the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons 3.5'' edition game, there is a way for a character to not only develop immunity to poison but actually absorb them for healing and stat boosts. On the Character Optimization forum at the Creator/WizardsOfTheCoast message boards, a character called the Trouserfang Dwarf was developed who got [[GameBreaker twinked this ability to the max]] and would walk around with his [[StealthPun trousers full of the most venomous snakes]] he could buy and monstrously overpowered stats.
** If anyone were to actually play this character, the suggested pre-combat threat was ''[[NightmareFuel "Don't make me take off my pants".]]''
*** A Series/{{Blackadder}} reference could've worked too: ''"Mind, sir, or I shall take off me belt and, by thunder, me trousers'll fall down!"''
* Giants in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' use random attacks in combat. At one point, these included "Stuff in Pants." The (very) unfortunate victim model was removed from the table permanently and counted as a casualty.
* The perk Natural Pocket in ''{{TabletopGame/GURPS}}'' can represent this. To quote the rulebook, "Some interpretations have the potential to offend..."

* In ''Theatre/TheCompleteWorksOfWilliamShakespeareAbridged'', the "scholarly" character pulls out his book on Shakespeare, which he keeps... right where you think. The title of the book? ''I Love My Willy''.
* In the ''Theatre/ForbiddenBroadway'' parody of ''Theatre/SpringAwakening'', Melchior unzips his fly and pulls out a microphone.

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* {{Lampshaded}} in ''VideoGame/ZorkGrandInquisitor'': From the beginning of the game, the player possesses a "permasuck machine" which is basically a canister vacuum. When he places it on the ground, Dalboz asks, "Just where were you keeping that?"
* The original ''Secret of VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' game. Guybrush Threepwood stores his entire (Significant) inventory in his pants, with a particularly notable example involving the 'Key' to the Monkey-Cave--a gigantic cotton swab--seeing him pull that out of his pants is vaguely disturbing. In ''[=LeChuck=]'s Revenge'', he acquires a jacket, and starts storing large objects in his inner pockets instead. Which is a real shame, since he picks up a living monkey at one point, and the sheer number of puns and bad jokes that could've resulted from him stuffing that in his pants would be ''terrifying''.
** Don't forget the large ''dog'' he's able to shove into his coat.
** At one point in ''[=LeChuck=]'s Revenge'', he finds his entire (usually sizable by that point) inventory has been into a single manila envelope, which he can (and really should) pick up and put in his pants. Upon opening it...
--->'''Guybrush''': ''Hey! That tickles.''
** The storing-stuff-in-his-pants aspect is returned and played up even more in ''Curse of Monkey Island'', especially as you see Guybrush putting everything into and out of his pants. This includes a 60-pound block of tofu at one point in the game.
** Don't forget the banana picker Guybrush puts in his pants at one point. And there's a scene in the third game where he's stuck in quicksand: "Hang on, the quicksand is sucking all the cool stuff I found in that snake from my pants. Now THERE'S an odd sensation."
*** On several occasions during ''Curse of Monkey Island'', Guybrush will [[AsideGlance suggestively waggle his eyebrows at the camera]] as he puts some implausible device (such as a ten-foot-long boat pole) into his pants.
** ''Escape from Monkey Island'' doesn't animate you taking things out of your pants ''per se'', but if you pull up your inventory in the company of other characters, they will often call you out on the fact that you're technically rifling through your pants (with vaguely naughty jokes thrown in).
*** Or they'll complain about your inventory screen [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall cluttering up their space]].
** Homage is paid to this by [[http://adventuregamestudio.co.uk/games.php?action=detail&id=1208 Awakener.]]
** A bit subverted in ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland'': Chapters 1 through 4 has Guybrush mention his "trousers" or "pants pockets" when he places items in his inventory; but in Chapter 5, when he places the [[ChekhovsBoomerang tiny pyrite parrots]] into the tip jar he has gotten, he says, "Sorry, guys. I need to keep you in a more contained space than my jacket pockets!"
* Played straight in another Creator/LucasArts adventure game--''VideoGame/TheDig''. Somewhat justified in that you're never carrying a great number of objects and none of them are particularly large--your shovel is a pocket shovel--but still beyond what anyone could realistically carry.
** Many of these same jokes make it into ''VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople'', as many of the [=LucasArts=] people from the MI series reconvened at Telltale.
* {{Lampshaded}} in the computer game ''VideoGame/SpaceQuestIIIThePiratesOfPestulon'':
-->You put the ladder in your pocket. Ouch!
* And again in ''VideoGame/{{Space Quest VI|Roger Wilco in the Spinal Frontier}}'', after trying to pick up a plank:
-->Narrator: Bet you can't fit that thing in your pants. Guess I was wrong, it does fit. There must be plenty of spare room in there.
* Speaking of {{Creator/Sierra}}, this trope is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry 2: Looking for Love (In Several Wrong Places)'' where Larry has to collect a 36-gallon trashcan-sized Grotesque Gulp soda. The narrator wonders how Larry's going to carry it with him... and then remembers that this is an adventure game and lets Larry just stuff the drink in his pocket.
* VideoGame/TexMurphy pulls a 4-foot long bamboo pole out of his in ''The Pandora Directive''.
* All of the (bearded) freed prisoners in ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' hide bonuses in their underwear. Including weapons. Is that a [[strike:Heavy Machine Gun]] [[strike:Rocket Launcher]] [[strike:Iron Lizard]] [[strike:Flamethrower]] Super Grenade in your pocket [[OrAreYouJustHappyToSeeMe or are you happy to]]... aw, never mind. What makes it hilarious is the giant grin they give you as they shake the bonus out.
** The boxers are comically large and he manages to pull them out of his pants in one-piece and then put them back in easily.
* When becoming Calamity Jane in ''VideoGame/WildArms3'', Maya has a ''[[GatlingGood chain gun]]'' drop out of her skirt.
* Trucy does it with her panties as a magic trick in ''VisaulNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney''. Fortunately for the sanity of us all, they aren't panties that she actually wears.
* When Johnny Cage wins a round in the original ''Franchise/MortalKombat'', where exactly does he pull his sunglasses from?
* UsefulNotes/MiyamotoMusashi from ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' keeps some sort of giant broom/sword/thing don't the front of his trousers, which he pulls out whenever it's time to really kick some butt.
* In ''VideoGame/TheSaboteur'', Sean Devlin is always seen pulling out his guns somewhere inside his torso or pants.

--> '''Strong Bad:''' Puttin' bat hutches in my pants, hope I don't get bit!
* VideoGame/PajamaSam, who seems to have plenty of space in the dropseat of his pajamas.
* In ''VideoGame/TheSims'' series of games, people pull anything from an engagement ring to garden tools from their pants. Can be made interesting if they are doing that while in their underwear, or naked if you have certain Game Mods installed.
** With the Sims 2 inventory system, Sims could pull ''minivans'' out of their trousers.
* Lampshaded by Barney halfway through ''VideoGame/HeartOfEvil'', when he expresses concern over the fact that Percy might have accidently ejaculated on the Roasted Moose given to him at the beginning of the game.
** Later on, Barney himself yells in disgust after he apparently peed himself. It turns out that he had just spilled his glass of applejuice in his underpants. Needless to say, you stock up on the little food you can get during a war.
* At the end of ''VideoGame/{{Skullmonkeys}}'', Klaymen pulls a potato out of his pants [[spoiler:to plug the exhaust pipe of Evil Engine No. 9]].
* In ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'', Lord Raptor whips his guitar out of his pants (neck first) for his victory pose.
* Our hero, Lee Everett, from ''VideoGame/{{The Walking Dead}}'' seems to be able to store just about anything he needs in his pants, from the realistic (a pistol) to the downright insane (a blowtorch).
* {{Lampshaded}} in ''VideoGame/{{Luigis Mansion Dark Moon}}''. Luigi occasionally needs to take large items (often being half of Luigi's size) back to the Bunker. One time, when you're taking three of them back to a level, E. Gadd chuckles and says "It's a good thing you have such deep pockets in those overalls!"

* In the webcomic ''Webcomic/RPGWorld'', the party's inventory is kept in Hero's pants. This led to an amusing scene when the others had to retrieve items while Hero was unconscious.
* In [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0261.html this]] ''[[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick]]'' strip, Belkar says that he concealed his Ring of Jumping somewhere he was "reasonably certain no one would search". Gee, I wonder what finger he's wearing it on?
* From one strip of ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'':
--> '''Black Mage''': "Lemme just reach into my wizard-style robes and pull out... MY KNIFE!" (By which, he actually means his knife. [[DontExplainTheJoke Not...]] Oh, forget it.)
** And as the comic goes on, he shows that he has much more than just the one knife in there. On at least two occasions, Black Mage has stabbed his targets with enough knives to open a silverware store.
* As Dan of ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' demonstrates, [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_689.php you can hide all sorts of cool things in a dress.]]
* ''Webcomic/GhastlysGhastlyComic'' naturally [[http://www.ghastlycomic.com/d/20030105.html parodied this one]].

[[folder: Web Original]]

-->'''Light''': As for Misa's Death Note, I'll keep it in the only place I know it will be safe—''my pants.''
-->'''Misa''': Oh, it'll be safe there! Light doesn't even let me in his pants!
-->'''Ryuk''': You're not missing anything.
* In WebOriginal/OrionsArm, young [[http://www.orionsarm.com/page/501 Siberoos]] can be carried in their mothers’ pants long after they outgrow the pouch – but mainly for special occasions such as birthdays.


[[folder: Western Animation ]]
* Joker in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' once decided against the gas gun, knife, or pie he had up his sleeve and instead went for the bazooka that came ''out of his pants''.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' had Francis the Bully shoplifting and sticking increasingly enormous items into his pants, including a large-screen TV, a generator, a car tire, and a 55 gallon drum.
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' features Cody somehow storing a loaf of bread and a can of soda in his pants without any apparent difficulty walking.
--> '''Cody''': I was gonna make us a... ''romantic'' picnic.
--> '''Gwen''': With bread from your ''pants?!''
* The dragons in ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'' have pouches that they can store seemingly anything in. They don't wear pants, but it's close.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'':
** Insane in the Mainframe: While thinking he is a robot, Fry takes some sandwiches from his pants and offers them to his friends, saying he took them from his [[{{Hammerspace}} compartment]]. They are not interested.
** The Bird-Bot of Ice-catraz: The nature hippie encourages the use of the butt for handwarming (and implied for storage), since it's "nature's pocket".
** Mother's Day: Professor Farnsworth keeps the controls for his albino shouting gorillas down the front of his pants, as a SpearCounterpart to how Mom keeps the Universal Robot Controller [[VictoriasSecretCompartment in her bra]].
** Minx from "2-D Blacktop" retrieves her cellphone from inside her shorts.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'''s Yakko keeps lots of things in his pants. Wakko would count if he ''wore'' pants.
** He does keep Baloney in his Slacks...
* A running gag in WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes is that often characters will pull anything they need out of their pants--most commonly binoculars.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "You Only Move Twice", Scorpio hands Homer some un-packaged sugar from his pants pocket. He then offers cream to which Homer quickly declines.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}'' has Mr. Smartypants, and the segment of the show "What's in my pants" which [[strike: usually]] always caused the Network Censor an ulcer.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower'', her brother He-Man pulls out an ''absurdly'' long grappling hook from his furry, extremely short tights. It was long enough for She-Ra to hook it onto a space ship, while it was in space, from the surface of her planet. Try not to let FridgeLogic set in, it will be too painful.
** He used the same grappling hook in some episodes of ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983''. The animators' intention could have been that he pulled it from his belt, but it's still a very tight belt. Maybe the pouch of [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002 the 2002 figure]] was a try at HandWaving it.
* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', Tommy often pulls stuff out of his diaper, usually his trusty toy screwdriver. Phil and Lil have been known to keep stuff there, too, such as god-knows-how-old graham crackers. Which [[FridgeLogic makes one wonder]], how often do the parents change the kids diapers if they never know they have all this stuff in them?
* In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooInArabianNights'', WesternAnimation/MagillaGorilla pulls an enormous telescope out of his very tight trousers. (Insert your own joke about having a phallic shaped object that expands in your pants here.)
* In ''WesternAnimation/FantasticMax'', Max often pulls stuff out of his diaper. AB even comments about how unsanitary of a habit it is considering Max uses the object he pulls out to his fullest advantage.
* In ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', whenever Kevin needs his bike he pulls it right out of his pants.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{The Brothers Grunt}}'', the brothers spontaneously pull objects, usually food, out of their boxers.
* Quack Quack from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' keeps a lot of stuff in his underwear (since he doesn't wear pants). These somehow include a piano, a UFO and a live sheep.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', Jackie inexplicably managed to have a skateboard and two helmets hidden under her dress during her date with Marco. And when invited to join Star and Marco at a Love Sentence concert, she somehow has three skateboards hidden… somewhere. Plus an extra helmet for Marco (presumably only refraining from pulling a third helmet out because Star magic-ed up one for herself).
* In the ''WesternAnimation/PrivateSnafu'' short "Censored" the titular character retrieves a messenger dove from the back of his pants.

[[folder: Real Life ]]
* Razor Ramon HardGay himself was once filmed visiting Harajuku to demand that the punk kids there do the right thing and call their dads on Father's Day... using a cell phone he drew suggestively from the front of his leather hotpants.
* ZP Theart, former lead singer of Music/DragonForce, tends to stuff his wireless microphone down the front of his pants whenever he needs his hands free onstage.
* There is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yj0B51vs8RI a video]] on Website/YouTube (believed to be a "warning video" to highlight the dangers of letting teenagers wear baggy pants) that shows a teenager pulling an absolutely improbable amount of guns out of his pants... ''including a full-size shotgun''.
** It first achieved notoriety when it was shown in ''Film/BowlingForColumbine'', long before jeans went from baggy to skinny (Fashion Marches On?).
* A notorious design of some school uniforms in Australia included a change purse in the front of the shorts ON THE INSIDE and no other pockets.
* [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/08/jennifer-mccarthy-vagina-gun-_n_4563551.html Jennifer McCarthy]] was arrested after threatening her boyfriend with a pistol she pulled from a very specific place. A place you could only reasonably hide a weapon while wearing only lingerie.
