* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}''. When Ayami Kojima handled the character designs in most of the Metroidvania games in the series, suddenly every Belmont (except Julius and Christopher) became a top-grade {{Bishonen}}. Special mention goes to Juste, Richter, and Simon in the Belmont bloodline.
* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' has ''lots'' of them, with Jin Kazama and his [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys rival]] Hwoarang being the notable forerunners of this trope. Other examples from the older generation are Kazuya Mishima, Lee Chaolan, and even Mr. Heihachi Mishima ''himself''. Nowadays this trope still runs strong within the series, especially with character customization that strips the fighters down to just underwear and fundoshi (and in Lee's case, a 'speedo')!
* ''Franchise/MetalGear'':
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' had Raiden, and even stripped him naked near the end of the game. WordOfGod stated that Raiden was specifically added for this, because HideoKojima heard two teenage girls complaining about how military games always had you playing as ugly old men, and so decided to make the main character a sexy young man. Raiden was even intended to have visible panty lines under his suit, according to his character design art, though this got cut at some point.
** It's also fair to note that Snake's outfit, which is supposed to be the same as what he wore in the previous game, suddenly and inexplicably got very, very tight - [[ThongOfShielding particularly around the buttocks]]. Creator/HideoKojima was apparently ''adamant'' that Solid Snake had a nicer butt than Raiden, insisting it was 'something like' the idea of how male gamers would rather stare at the backside of a woman for hours, and gave the character modeller a hard time until they got it perfect. The character designer freely admitted that Raiden was to appeal to girls who liked handsome young {{Bishonen}}, and Snake to girls who liked sexy older men.
** Liquid Snake. Blond, British, wanders around [[WalkingShirtlessScene shirtless]] in Alaska.
** Kazuhira Miller in ''Peace Walker''. [[FirstPersonSnapshooter You get to take photos of him in his underwear]] and even ''[[GayOption have sex]]'' with him in one bonus mission in the game.
* Though not very much, some characters in ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' count as this. WalkingShirtlessScene Anji looks almost ''tame'' compared to the likes of Sol and Johnny.
* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'': Out of all the armor options they could use for his pallet swaps, only [[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} Shulk's]] [[WalkingShirtlessScene swimsuit outfit]] was retained. [[VideoGame/FireEmblem Marth and Ike]] seem to get the more downplayed treatment occasionally, and there is a possible InUniverse example in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Roy]] if screenshots are to be believed. And three other examples listed here, [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda Link]], [[VideoGame/MetalGear Solid Snake]] and [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Ryu]], have all appeared in the games.
* Whithin ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' the attractively designed, most biggest fanservice ploys in the game are Jin and Hazama. Jin is a tsundere bishounen with tight clothing and troubled past. A sexy pillowcase featuring him sold at twice the amount of Noel's and Rachel's pillowcases weeks before it was even ''designed''. Hazama, the smooth criminal, is a very well dressed troll. He is the only character, male or female, who has a bath scene in game. [[http://www.fightersgeneration.com/nx9/char/ragna-blazblue-cp-beach.jpg Ragna]] and [[http://www.fightersgeneration.com/nx9/char/kagura-mutsuki-bbcp-beach.jpg Kagura]] join the bandwagon with swimsuits in ther beach episode alongside Celica and Noel.
* Albel Nox from ''StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime'' has an outfit that features a completely purple ensemble including a tight, [[BareYourMidriff belly-revealing shirt]] and a purple skirt. He also has an unlockable shirtless outfit (with {{sarashi}}!), an imprisonment scene, permanent shackles at his neck and wrists, and {{Panty Shot}}s.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'': Yuri Lowell, anyone? His outfits had built in chest exposure. Some of his alternate outfits (especially in the Japanese [=PS3=] version) involve showing a fair bit of skin, or have him in skin-tight outfits.
* Luke from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', with his midriff baring shirt and ripped abs; ([[ShirtlessScene and seems to lose the shirt altogether in many of his alternate outfits]]).
* Leon Magnus from ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'' is one, as a dark-haired [[TheWoobie woobie]] {{Bishounen}}. He attracts women all around (Lampshaded in skits, much to his dismay). There is official art of him ''in bondage''. Prince Garr/Woodrow also serves one as in-universe example, attracting women all around (it seems to have to do with his "princely aura".)
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': The game's enormous female following is largely due to the ability to play a female Shepard, but in case that wasn't enough incentive...
** Most of the male love interests will display some degree of MrFanservice, but Thane takes the cake: the [[TheAtoner assassin seeking redemption]] with a deep raspy voice, a [[HellbentForLeather taste for leather]], and a tendency to show off a good portion of his pecs (mind you, that's to help stave off a terminal disease, but still). He was specifically designed by the creators to provide a male counterpart to the [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe asari]].
** It's worth noting that Kaidan's chest in ''3'' has as much pixel definition as most main character's FACES.
** James Vega takes up the mantle in the third game. He's not a romance option, but the game doesn't mind letting players admire his body, in ''and'' out of universe.
* ''VideoGame/LegacyOfKain'' is chock full of this. All but one of the main male vampires spend most of their time at least partially topless. Kain spends two whole games [[WalkingShirtlessScene walking shirtless]] and we never actually see Janos Audron with a real shirt on.
* ''VideoGame/VagrantStory'' has [[ImplacableMan Ashley]] in his assless battleshorts, muscle-revealing shirtfront, and improbable red hair, or the shirtless [[AntiVillain Sydney]] with his barely-hanging-on pants and dramatic buttcape.
* Amiti in ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'' is a {{Bishounen}} WarriorPrince whose introductory storyline is spent wearing [[EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry more jewelry]] [[WalkingShirtlessScene than clothing]].
* ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' with Dante, courtesy of his shirtless younger self just stepping out of the shower in the first scene of the third game. It runs in the family: see his older twin Vergil and [[spoiler:nephew Nero]].
* And if there was any doubt that Akihiko is and always has been MrFanservice, [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/megamitensei/images/7/73/P4A_Akihiko_Render.png/revision/latest?cb=20141207153150 this is what he looks like in]] ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4 Arena}}''.
* The main character from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'' spends ''98% of the time'' shirtless. It's practically a shirtless ''[[LogicalExtreme game]]''. The only time the Demi-Fiend wears a shirt is in the prologue (the first 30-60 minutes of a ~50 hour game), before there's any actual gameplay. He's pretty buff, too.
* Link, whenever he's an teen, is usually a handsome {{Bishonen}}. As shown in the page image, he even gets a ShirtlessScene in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''. Link in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is an even bigger example than previous Link's. He is a LongHairedPrettyBoy who wears a ponytail and has a softer, more feminine looking face than usual. He starts the game shirtless and you can technically play the game with him only wearing boxers if you want (though it would be challenging). At E3 2016 many jokes were made by Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s Treehouse crew about how attractive Link is (especially shirtless). Also in ''Breath Of the Wild'' is Prince Sidon, who is a [[FishPeople Zora]] that doesn't wear any form of clothing other than a belt and other accessories, is quite muscular, and is darn tall. Whenever Sidon appears, you'll be seeing his built body quite often.
* Starting from ''Soulcalibur IV'', the ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' has ''every'' male character in can have [[ClothingDamage their armor broken]] during battle and fight shirtless. You can even strip all the male characters down to just ''underwear'', ''fundoshi'' and ''thongs'' in the Character Customization menu!
* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' gives us Sanada Yukimura. Able to effortlessly go from {{Moe}} puppyblob to HotBlooded kickassery at the drop of a hat. And don't even get us started on those [[WalkingShirtlessScene abs]]...
* [[PrinceOfPersia The Prince]] manages to lose more and more of his upper-body clothes over the course of the first game, until he's completely shirtless.
* ''VideoGame/StarFox'' seems to have invoked this as of late with its predominantly male cast, to [[YaoiFangirl its]] [[LGBTFanbase fanbase's]] [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom glee]]. The most obvious example is [[LargeHam Wolf]].
* Kaim from ''VideoGame/LostOdyssey'' has very formfitting armour, with a nice sliver of flesh that shows off his hips and lower back. Not to mention the scene when he awakes after losing his memories, and is shirtless.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' loves its handsome fellas. Let's see - partial list;
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' prequel ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' has Zack Fair, complete with a ShirtlessScene on the beach.
** ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'': Sephiroth has an alternate costume where he fights [[OneWingedAngel with one wing]] and [[WalkingShirtlessScene zero shirts.]]
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'': [[IdiotHero Snow]] is the perfect stereotype of that somewhat simple but absurdly hot boyfriend that goes to the ends of the world to save his girlfriend. He even gets two {{Shirtless Scene}}s, one in ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII XIII]]'' and one in ''[[VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII Lightning Returns]]'' [[note]]but only if the fight against him takes long enough[[/note]] and boy, Snow is ''ripped''.
** ''VideoGame/MobiusFinalFantasy'''s main selling point is that the main character is a handsome white-haired boy with a great body and outfits that show off his extensive tats. Square Enix actually had to edit the game when Wol's [[TheissTitillationTheory insubstantial outfit]] was criticised by playtesters for being so sexualised that it came off as absurd (in the manner of the feminine ChainmailBikini).
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' has an all-male main cast, ranging from broody [[http://www.geeksofdoom.com/GoD/img/2016/10/final-fantasy-xv-omen-trailer.jpg Noctis]] to the muscled [[http://cdn.idigitaltimes.com/sites/idigitaltimes.com/files/2017/03/29/gladio-nipple-ring.jpg Gladiolus]].
* ''Franchise/StreetFighter'':
** THE original MrFanservice in fighting games is Ryu. TallDarkAndHandsome? Check. HeroicBuild? Check. Badass inside the battlefield and a mix of SociallyAwkwardHero and NiceGuy outside? Check. [[DoesnotLikeShoes Goes barefoot]]? Check. Friends of both genders that he can be {{ship tease}}d with once in a while? Check. The fifth game upped it even more with one of their DLC costumes: "[[FanNickname Hot Ryu]]" has MessyHair, quite the [[ShirtlessScene bare chest]], the mother of {{Heroic Build}}, and a BadassBeard which screams nothing but fanservice. Fangirls, [[EvenTheGuysWantHim fanboys]] '''and''' [[LGBTFanbase LGBT+ fans]] have gone gaga over him, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UtOebtOQ0k and they can't be blamed]].
** There's also Charlie Nash, who originally appeared in the ''Alpha'' games. He came back in ''V'' looking like Frankenstein's monster, but sporting a vest that displays his firmly toned chest, the abs remained ''untouched''.
** Urien and Gill are also notable walking glasses of fanservice for players to drink in. Impeccable bodies only rivaled by Greek gods, wearing nothing but ''thongs''...
* The male Blood Elf player character in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' could qualify as this, appearing in the game at about the same time Blizzard began to realize they had a significant female playerbase.
** At the very least, his original model was pretty enough that the male fans set up a howling outcry until the developers bulked up his muscles. He still has much more delicate facial features and ''much'' more fabulous hair options than any of the other male models.
* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' envelopes some fanservice elements in their male characters for its fans. The one who set the example in regards to this trope is Iori Yagami: Deep and sensual voice? Check. Bad boy attitude? Check. HellBentForLeather? Check.
** For that matter, the TallDarkAndHandsome Kyo Kusanagi himself has become more of this with time. He's also kind of a bad boy [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold but not as jerk-ish as Iori is]], has a pretty nice body, deals the snark very well. Not to mention KOF: KYO takes his {{Bishonen}} traits and turns them UpToEleven. (And his physical beauty even gets praised by ''[[StreetFighter Vega]]'' [[TheFightingNarcissist of all people]] in VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos)
** And following both Iori and Kyo, there's K'. A gorgeous DarkSkinnedBlond who's also HellBentForLeather.
** Shen Woo is among the few that can rival these three in this. Another DarkSkinnedBlond? Check. A WalkingShirtlessScene with finely-sculpted abs that would give [[VideoGame/SengokuBasara Yukimura]] a run for his money? Check. Very handsome features? Check.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'' games all have a pair of combination attacks ("Pretty Boy(s)" and "Fancy Lad(s)") where that game's collection of {{bishonen}} gang up to attack the enemy. Needless to say, there's usually at least one who qualifies for this trope.
** ''VideoGame/SuikodenTierkreis'' is unusually equal-opportunity in its {{fanservice}}, with a sizable portion of the male cast being {{Walking Shirtless Scene}}s. The most obvious is Asad the badass, HotBlooded, DarkSkinnedRedhead DoggedNiceGuy mage commander, but there are quite a few others.
* Almost all of the guys in [[AtelierRorona the]] [[AtelierTotori Arland]] [[AtelierMeruru trilogy]] are impossibly pretty, but Sterk takes the cake. He can be seen half undressed, naked in a hot spring, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything or being attacked by a giant octopus]].
* While very few of the male characters in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'' [[WalkingShirtlessScene seem to be able to find a shirt]], there's Johnny Cage, with his literally constant bare-chestedness.
** Liu Kang as well, since he's more often than not bare-chested and has pretty handsome features as well.
* So much attention has been focused on [[MsFanservice the Sorceress and Amazon]] of ''VideoGame/DragonsCrown'' that it's easy to overlook the Knight and Dwarf's ridiculous muscles, coupled with the Knight's [[{{Bishonen}} pretty-boy face]] and the Dwarf's outfit rivaling the Amazon's for {{Stripperiffic}}.
* VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening and VideoGame/FireEmblemFates cater more openly to people of [[MaleGaze both]] [[FemaleGaze genders]] who like fanservice, so both games have very handsome men who were openly designed to make fangirls swoon. ''Awakening'' has Prince Chrom, Gaius and Owain as the most obvious examples, specially if one goes by their DLC pictures; ''Fates'' adds guys like the Male Avatar, Jakob, the Nohrian princes Xander and Leo, the Hoshidan princes Ryoma and Takumi, the Nohrian outlaw Niles, the Nohrian Dark Mage Odin [[spoiler: who turns out to be the aforementioned Owain under a SecretIdentity]], etc.
* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'''s Mettaton is not only [[spoiler:as attractive as the game's pixellated sprite-based art style allows for when he's in his pretty, gracefully-posing EX form]], he ''revels'' in the fact that he's viewed as this in-universe; apparently, he's released twenty-seven movies each "consisting mostly of a single four-hour shot of rose petals showering [his] reclining body" and visited Undyne's house just so he could [[SittingSexyOnAPiano lie seductively on her piano]] while feeding himself grapes. Apparently this started with most of the Underground knowing him as a [[TinCanRobot big talking monitor with arms on a unicycle wheel]] -- and he implies on the KillEmAll path that he considers the rectangle form the ''more'' attractive one. Seems confidence really does go a long way in making someone seem hotter.
-->'''Burgerpants''': Why do people find him so attractive? ''He's literally just a freaking rectangle!''
* ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'' has multiple male characters that exhibit handsome features and display some more fanservice-y qualities. Of particular note is Ingway, the Prince of Valentine and older twin brother to playable protagonist Velvet. Not only does he have the physical aspects of a {{Bishonen}}, but his outfit features a mantle that has a tendency to flare out whenever he moves, exposing a tanned and chiseled physique. He's so handsome that Mercedes, [[spoiler: his love interest,]] is left speechless when she sees his human form for the first time after [[spoiler: breaking the frog curse that was cast on him.]]
* While ''Franchise/DragonAge'' is said to have a few of these, with hot bod gazing and skimpy threads galore--Cullen, by ''[[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition Inquisition]]'', has become this (if you didn't consider him so in previous games). He gets ShirtlessScene in one cutscene, a few nude scenes, and even parodies this trope in a skit BioWare created in their Best Game of the Year nomination in a game awards show.
** And then there's the Iron Bull: a [[LargeAndInCharge huge]], [[TheBigGuy buff]], insanely capable warrior with [[BadassBaritone an incredibly deep and sexy voice]] and PermaStubble, who is [[WalkingShirtlessScene perpetually shirtless]] (and believes in "No Pants Fridays"), is both a ChivalrousPervert and TheHedonist, and is very strongly implied in cutscenes during the romance sidequest to be [[BiggerIsBetterInBed extremely well-endowed]]. And he's voiced by Creator/FreddiePrinzeJr. Needless to say, he's a case of not just EstrogenBrigadeBait but EvenTheGuysWantHim (including InUniverse).
* The ''VideoGames/DarkParables'' are brimming with this trope, since most of the major male characters have some of this going on. Brothers-in-law Prince James and Prince Ross are a couple of {{Hunk}}s, while Jack (the beanstalk climber) bears a strong resemblance to Franchise/IndianaJones. The two young men in the bonus chapter of the seventh game are a pair of very {{Pretty Boy}}s, and Eric, in the ninth game, is a WalkingShirtlessScene. Later games in the series feature the Moon Priest, who arguably looks more like a storybook PrinceCharming than any other character yet introduced, and the newest installment gives us the Shadow God, who evokes EvilIsSexy.
