Ms Fanservice: Western Animation


  • The title character of Æon Flux runs around doing spywork and sabotage in outfits ranging from a skintight catsuit to a vinyl thong bikini and stripper boots. Aeon's appearance was originally conceived as a parody of unrealistically Stripperiffic Action Girls.
  • Animaniacs has two Parent Service characters:
    • The famous, sexy and blonde nurse, Hello, Nurse! (Trope Namer) is one of classic example in the western animation. Hello Nurse's appearance almost always prompts Wakko and Yakko into exclaiming "Hellooooooo, Nurse!", (one of the show's well-known lines) and jumping into her arms. She also appears in some short as hostess, maid, Femme Fatale, ecc..
    • Minerva Mink, an attractive, beautiful and sexy anthromorphic mink (reason why the censors found her cartoons Too Hot for TV and scrapped them). In her short she appears in a Modesty Towel and has a Shower Scene (with Sexy Silhouette).
  • Parodied in Aqua Teen Hunger Force: MC Pee Pants, who's reincarnated to look like an old man, says that he tried to be sexy in his poster to attract vampires. Of course, the character wears only a diaper anyway.
    • One episode has Shake and Carl trying to score with a sexy construction worker named Dusty Gazongas. It's strongly implied that being sexy is mostly all she does.
  • Ty Lee from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Lampshaded in "The Beach", where some guys see her lying on the beach and picture her doing sexy poses.
  • Janet Van Dyne/The Wasp, and Black Widow in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Wasp often receives Clothing Damage and appears in a bikini in one scene solely to show her Most Common Superpower, while Black Widow's skintight catsuit receives highly detailed animation.
  • Batman: The Animated Series, particularly the villainesses :
    • Catwoman. Wears a very form fitting costume and speaks in a flirtatious, sultry voice.
    • Harley Quinn. Both as Sexy Jester and in other outfit (police, lawyer, ecc). Not forgetting the famous Jumping Out of a Cake scene and her Les Yay relationship with Poison Ivy.
    • Poison Ivy. One of her main features as a villain is her seductive ability.
    • Roxy Rocket. Has a nice figure and provides cleavage.
  • In Ben 10, Gwen was a 10-year old girl and thus a Pettanko, and her teenage nemesis, Charmcaster, wore a coat that revealed no cleavage. In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, however, the two are all grown up, with noticeably bigger breasts, Gwen having several scenes in swimsuits, and Charmcaster wearing a much form-fitting outfit. Although he may've just been mocking her, Ben said that she always had a big butt.
  • Older than Television: Betty Boop was filling this role as early as 1930 and is one of the pioneering animated examples. In her shorts, Betty got Panty Shots and Hello, Nurse! reactions from nearly every male character she encountered before the Hays Code interfered.
  • Cleo from 'Clone High is portrayed as seductive, hedonistic and libidinous. She wears often skimpy outfit and her regular outfit is a white tank top which shows her large cleavage and a tight black miniskirt to show her voluptuous figure.
  • Élisabeth "Sissi" Delmas is Ms. Fanservice in Code Lyoko. She's the one most often seen in some underwear, swimsuit or panty-shot scene. And yes, it's a kid show... but a French one.
  • Drew Saturday. Let us count the ways, shall we? A hot Action Mom, she spends pretty much every scene in a Spy Catsuit, excluding that one scene when she sported a Little Black Dress, has the whole Mystical White Hair thing going on, and could easily kick your ass with her flaming sword. Need there be more?
  • Princess Mandie from The Fairly OddParents. Leaving aside the Yugopotamians all the male characters find her very attractive (especially Cosmo).
  • The parody of superhero tropes, Frisky Dingo, has Antagone, who has much larger breasts than her Lois Lane Alter Ego. Frisky Dingo also has Hooker, who's justified to dress this way, because she's... a Hooker.
  • Futurama's Turanga Leela and Amy Wong both take turns at fanservice from time to time; about the very busty Leela her standard outfit consists of skin-tight tanktop and pants, her other "ordinary" outfits (such as formal dresses and swimsuits) invariably have a midriff window showing her belly button, and she's the most likely to be seen wearing strange, Stripperiffic outfits. She's also the second-most-likely to get naked, after Professor Farnsworth. Amy, aside from her regular pink tracksuit outfit, wear very skimpy outfit for every formal event (even a funeral) and often appears in bikini. The creators acknowledged in a commentary at one point that Amy was a sex symbol to the fans, joking that there was a fansite called Can't Get Enough Amy.
  • The Baroness was probably the closest that G.I. Joe came to this (there's a reason she has a trope named after her) and some of her outfits were pretty risqué for a cartoon of the time. The most blatant example was one episode where she wore a bikini for the entire episode. (Not by her choice. Plot-wise, she, Cobra Commander, Flint, and Lady Jay were kidnapped by a third-party villain and forced into a Deadly Game, and in her case, she was in a spa at the time when she was grabbed, and had no way to change. Still, it was obviously an intentional move by the writers.)
  • Cousin Mel from Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer, a evil buxom redhead. Sha has more Male Gaze scene, particularly during her villain song, wher she is dancing with a Fur Bikini top, and her Cleavage Window has widened.
  • Gravity Falls has Wendy (who looks quite fetching in a Baywatch-esque red bathing suit in "The Deep End"), as well as Hot Scoop Shandra Jimenez.
  • Justice League Unlimited has so many examples that exceptions (such as Amanda Waller and Killer Frost) are far easier to list. The major are:
    • Wonder Woman. She get tha majority of Male Gaze in the series. The second episode, "Secret Origins" part 2, features Wonder Woman pretty obviously getting naked when she drops her robe to put on her costume. In "Dark Heart," The Atom gets a ride to the fight in Wonder Woman's cleavage.
    • Black Canary. A blonde heroine who is s dressed like a cocktail waitress. Her character design has to be the most obvious Fanservice of the series. Her initial conversation/sparring session with Green Arrow in "The Cat and the Canary" — sans jacket — is jaw-dropping, all blonde hair and curves flattening on the mat. She lets him get on top of her and pin her arms behind her back, to convince him to do her a favor. Really, any episode with Canary in it is made for fanservice.
    • Huntress. She doesn't get the amount of in-universe attention that Wonder Woman or Black Canary do, but the camera does develop Male Gaze when she's in an episode.
    • Vixen. She wear a costume with an Absolute Cleavage and often tease Green Lantern.
    • Giganta. She has a buxom figure, especially compared with Killer Frost in the Secret Society, and wears a tiny dress. Only the Magic Skirt trope avoid Panty Shot, even when she falls over. She attracts a few men in the show ( included Flash).
  • From Littlest Pet Shop (2012) the Biskit twins. In the second episode, they dress in form-fitting Cat Girl outfits for camouflage, and their general design seems to invoke this.
  • Invoked in one episode of Megas XLR. While at a shopping mall, Jamie tries to get Kiva to wear a bunch of goofy and embarrassing outfits (including a punk-rocker chick outfit and pyjamas) as a petty joke on his part. However, Kiva just ends up provoking a different reaction from onlookers and the prank backfires.
  • The Modifyers: Lacey Shadows is one hot goth, who achieved Memetic Sex Goddess status as a result of the unofficial porn parody. So you can find plenty of animated gifs from it and hentai fan art of her.
  • Phineas and Ferb
    • Vanessa. She's the only female non-adult character in the show with serious curves and her outfit hugs them tightly. And speaking of "I'm Me" up above check out the hip action.
    • Linda Flynn sometimes shows signs of this. Has Hartman Hips and at the end of "Phineas and Ferb Interrupted" comes out of the house in a show girl dress!.
    • Candace-2 in The Movie. She wear A Bare Your Midriff outfit and to bottom this off, she also gets a Zettai Ryouiki upgrade. She looks -and sounds- more sexy than Candace-1.
  • Scooby-Doo: Daphne Blake has been providing a very large amount for kids of all ages for many, many years. And quite a few parents as well. In Big Top Scooby-Doo!, she wears a circus gymnastic outfit that shows off her long legs. Her clown costume also has a very low neckline.
  • In Seth Mac Farlane's show, usually, one of the main characters, a family member, fits the role:
    • Family Guy has Lois Griffin. Some episodes will have her dressing revealingly.
    • American Dad! has both mother and daughter, Francine and Hayley Smith. For Francine, special mention goes to "My Morning Straitjacket" in which she got Stan backstage by showing off her body to appease all of the guards.
    • The Cleveland Show has Roberta Tubbs. Portrayed as a sexy teenager, she often wears skimpy clothes.
  • The Sixteen writers certainly loved having Jen get caught either shirtless or nude, though this was censored accordingly.
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars has had many female characters fitting this trope including Aayla Secura, occasionally Padme, and Ahsoka also seems to be getting there, but so far the fanservice incarnate of the show is definitely Suu Lawquane, by the sheer amount of fanservice-related tropes she embodies all at once.
  • Superman: The Animated Series:
    • Lois Lane, a major example of an animated Hot Scoop. She receives more Male Gaze on her legs and mini-skirt.
    • Supergirl has an hourglass figure despite her age and wears Bare Your Midriff costumes.
    • Mercy Graves, Lex's bodyguard who wears a ridiculously short dress . She gets even more Fanservice after her design change in Justice League, to the point where the android, while channeling Flash, hits on her.
  • Sym-Bionic Titan has Kimmy Meisner. She's got plenty of curves, dresses provocatively and shows it off.
  • Teen Titans: Raven and Starfire seem to be almost constantly tied for this position in the cartoon. In the comics, its a whole 'nother ballgame, as Starfire in the comics has what the original Terra described as a "balloon bod" that resembles a playboy model, and her outfit is best described as "bikini". They had to tone her down for prime-time children's viewing. Though one might wonder why the animators toned down Starfire below Raven, who was much less skanky and curvy than Starfire in the comics. In the toon, it's the other way round. Raven's outfit is at least comparable to the comic, but then again, putting a girl as young as the cartoon's Starfire in her Stripperiffic comic outfit would be almost criminal. For that reason, and for the fact that comic Starfire's personality is overwhelmingly uncaring of nudity and sex taboos, the writers decided to play up her comparative innocence. Given that the rest of the team include two veteran heroes, a half-demon and a recovering cripple, this makes more sense than in the comics where she was introduced, where Raven was the one who was comparatively innocent. This is subtly lampshaded in one episode where the two characters switch bodies.
  • Teen Titans Go!, meanwhile, sees Raven claiming the Ms. Fanservice crown pretty handily. Especially in "Legs".
  • The Mae West horse from the Van Beuren Studios cartoon "Galloping Fanny", and the Mae West duck in "Mild Cargo". Both of them, especially the latter, are of the Petting Zoo People variety of fanservice.
  • She-Hulk in The Incredible Hulk cartoon. To start with, she's a green Amazonian Beauty. In the series, between the seductive voice, the orgasmic transformation, the constant Male Gaze shots, and averting the Panty Shot via Vapor Wear, she smashes the radar even more than she smashes villains. In her earlier appearances, She-Hulk was also portrayed as an Amazonian Beauty.
  • The New Adventures of Flash Gordon: Princess Aura. In the early episodes, she was accompanied by seemingly every female on Mongo whose name wasn't Dale Arden. And sometimes Dale herself.
  • Sara Bellum in The Powerpuff Girls plays the trope straight and subverts it: Though only her impressive hourglass figure is ever seen and her face has never been shown (and the only time she's seen from the shoulders up is after she's turned into a dog), she is easily the most organized, thoughtful character in the series.
  • In The Simpsons we have some one-episode characters:
    • Tabitha Vixx from "Marge and Homer Turn a Couple Play", an actress and Shameless Fanservice Girl. So much so that in her show a sign warns "first ten rows may get horny".
    • Titania from "Pygmoelian", a blond buxom woman. In the "Beer–Tender of the Year" contest she pulled out all the stops in using her Gag Boobs to increase her chances of winning.
    • Sara Sloane from "A Star Is Born-Again". She wears revealing fashion and nearly act in topless roles for a romantic film.
    • Marge herself in "Large Marge", in which she was accidentally given breast implants and become a model, and in "The Devil Wears Nada" after sexy pictures of her end up on a charity calendar. Several Halloween special have Fanservice scenes with her also. In Real Life she appeared on Playboy posing semi-nude!.
  • Dr. Girlfriend and Molotov Cocktease from The Venture Bros..
  • In Total Drama, several of the female contestants qualify, but Lindsay and Heather stand out.
    • Lindsay's got large breasts, wears a tank top and short skirt, and in one episode even dresses up like an admiral. And Wonder Woman!
    • Heather has many Shower Scenes and appearances in a Modesty Towel during the first season. Plus, her boobs were shown in "X-Treme Torture", and her butt was shown (uncensored no less) in "3:10 to Crazytown".
    • Gwen wears a mini-skirt and corset-like black top. Briefly becomes a Reluctant Fanservice Girl after Heather rips off Gwen's skirt during the rock climbing challenge in "Who Can You Trust?".
    • The producers seem to love the Male Gaze trope, especially with Courtney.
    • Dakota and Zoey (that, like Courtney, gets a fair amount of Male Gaze) serve in this role for the second generation cast.
  • The three main characters of Totally Spies! with frequent Male Gaze. About half the camera shots are focused on the girl's breasts as they are about to speak or when they crash into each other the camera is often focused their butts as they are lying on the floor.
