Pimped Out Dress: Videogames

Pimped Out Dresses in Video Games.

Examples

  • Given the Costume Porn in Agarest Senki, this trope shows up several times.
  • Arc Rise Fantasia has quite a few.
  • Ar Tonelico 2 has some. Cloche wears a double layer dress, that has a short blue underdress, a longer overdress, and loads of white feathers trimming her gloves. It turns out she doesn't know at first how to take the dress off without help.
  • Some of the NPC sprites in Astonishia Story are based on Real Life outfits, particularly this one, a Whole Costume Reference to Louise of Lorraine's (the wife of Henry III of France). It has a red overdress, a white petticoat, large frilled collar, and wide turned-back sleeves.
  • Barbie in Barbie Super Model has a few pimped-out dresses, which is to be expected from a game for little girls based around being a fashionable super model.
  • The queen in Battle Chess, whether it's the in-game dress with the ermine-trimmed hem, or the skimpy ermine-trimmed dress on the game covers.
  • Some girls in the BlazBlue and Guilty Gear series are Kicking Ass in All Her Finery with fancy dresses.
  • Princess Fillet of Brave Fencer Musashi wears a white dress with a pleated underskirt, an overskirt edged with alternating chevrons of white and red, a large red bow on her collar and hair, little red bows holding her bodice together like buttons, undersleeves that are like scarves, and a belt.
  • Princess Karen in Brave Soul wears a pink dress with gold trimming, ruffled cuffs and collar, and a green jewel at the front of the neck.
  • The Castlevania series is no stranger to this trope.
    • The women in the Ghost Dancer enemies always wore dresses with frills and ruffles, starting with The Dancing Specters in Super Castlevania IV.
    • Camilla in Castlevania: Circle of the Moon word a pink and red dress with frills trimming the sleeves and neckline, and the skirt made of flowing fabric, that was bunched up in the back that made it look like a Giant Waist Ribbon.
    • Lydie's dress in Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance is loaded with white frill and ruffles, and black frills on the overskirt.
    • In Castlevania: Lament of Innocence, Sara wears a white dress with a blue and white bodice that has ribbons wrapping around the sleeves, brocade trimming the bodice, and a strip of embroidery down the front of the skirt. Elizabeth wears a dress of white and brocaded gold, hanging sleeves with tassels on the tip, and a light gold sash and cape.
    • The sisters in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin wear different dresses, each with lots of frills and ruffles.
    • Shanoa of Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia wears a black dress with armor on the gauntlets, leggings, bodice, and down the sides of her skirt, and the armor has gold trimming.
    • Given the Costume Porn in Castlevania Judgment, this trope shows up a bit, but the most dress-like outfit is Maria's, a pink dress with trimmings of ruffles, loops, crosses, and belts.
  • The Guardia royal dress in Chrono Trigger is a (mostly) white dress with puff sleeves, a puffy skirt with two layers of overskirt, Opera Gloves, and ruffles edging most of it. Queen Zeal wears a gold dress with purple trimming. Schala's relatively simple dress has hanging sleeves and a white-trimmed collar.
  • Some of the outfits in the Dance Dance Revolution are fancy enough to count, notably Jun, who wears two different fancy Sexy Whatever Outfits. In the first three "Hottest Party" games, she wears a version of a Japanese Goddess with a floating stole. In the next two games, she wears an Angel Gothic Lolita dress with white or black feathers.
  • Dark Souls has at least a couple. Princess Gwynevere wears a white and gold dress with lace trimming, hanging sleeves, and a strip of fabric wrapped around her legs like a skirt. Dusk of Oolacile wears a light golden dress with pearls, a petticoat, puff sleeves, Opera Gloves, and a laces shoulder cape.
  • Lucrecia's dress in Dirge of Cerberus is white with a guazy stole, midriff cut on the side, and frills trimming the skirt.
  • Princess Rozalin's dress in Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories just might be the most extravagant out in the Disgaea series, which is a series not hurting for fancy costumes in the first place. It's loaded with petticoats, flounces, Detached Sleeves, ribbons, pearls, jewels, bows, jewel encrusted bows, gold-laced shoes, wings (which, while not technically part of the costume, are held in a way to resemble the biggest shoulderpads known to man), and a matching pink designer gun. Plus she wears that outfit anywhere, even into battle.
  • The dresses in the Dragon Quest games include:
    • Princess Lora in Dragon Quest I wears a golden dress with puff sleeves, frills at the bottom of the skirt, and a purple Giant Waist Ribbon.
    • Princess Medea wears a couple in Dragon Quest VIII. Her "main" dress (can only be seen when the spell is gotten around) it white with gold trimming, a red petticoat, and a blue cape. Her Fairytale Wedding Dress has opera gloves, a puffy petticoat, and a lace-edged overskirt.
    • Princess Simona in Dragon Quest IX wears a green dress with gold trimming, dark green brocade edging the overskirt, and a large bow on the bodice.
  • The Emerald Princess you fight a couple times in Dream World wears at least two dresses, one a relatively simple green dress with gold trimming, and another a more fancy green dress with woven silver trimming, and a High Collar of Doom that looks as though it's made out of colored light or mist.
  • Characters from Dynasty Warriors:
    • Wang Yuanji wears a dress that has flared sleeves with frills edging them, gold trimming, embroidery and/or brocade (depending on the exact dress), two layers of gauzy underskirts, and a Cleavage Window.
    • Yu Meiren wears a white dress covered in flowers, gold "scales", frills and lace.
    • Yue Ying wears at least two variations of a white and green dress with gold, armor, ribbons, and frilled sleeves.
  • Eternal Sonata isn't short on these.
    • Princess Serenade's dress is white and light yellow with lace trimming, a gauze short petticoat, three layers of overskirts, and gold trimming that also makes a heart shape on the bodice.
  • The Battle Ballgowns worn by the princess class in Etrian Odyssey III have loads of embroidery, fur trimming, gold trimming and armor plating, and frilled edging.
  • Both princesses in Fat Princess wear dresses with frills and ribbons.
  • The Final Fantasy series has no shortage of these.
    • Princess Sarah in Final Fantasy I wears a white dress with the skirt sides slashed to show a layered green underskirt.
    • Hilda in Final Fantasy II wears a light blue dress with flowers embroidered on the skirt, a large ribbon wrapped just under the waist, and a long blue cape lined with embroidered purple.
    • Princess Sara in Final Fantasy III, at least the Video Game Remake on the DS, wears a dress of several shades of blue, a long overdress, and an underskirt of blue and gold. Some of Refia's class outfits in the remake look like fancy dresses, while they look like robes on the other characters.
    • Rosa of Final Fantasy IV got a rather extensive upgrade for the DS version - they added even more jewels, a tiara, and a second cape apparently made of lace, as well as lace tights and sleeves.
    • In Final Fantasy VI, Celes wore a white dress when impersonating Maria. The game sprites showed mainly a white dress with the skirt open to reveal the petticoat, but the FMV in the Updated Re-release on the Playstation showed the dress as an 18th century style dress, that had loads of frills, lace, and embroidery, with a small box at the center of the scooped neckline.
    • Edea's dress in Final Fantasy VIII had a feather neckline, a jagged skirt, and a cape-like accessory that grew out of her back and was like a gold half circle with two white translucent strips on each side.
    • Garnet's grand white, lacy, beaded dress in Final Fantasy IX, as well as Lani's Mini Dress Of Power being pimped out as well.
    • There are some in Final Fantasy X. Yuna's summoner dress has a pleated skirt with a white flower motif on part of it, and a huge yellow waist sash. Her wedding dress had a five-foot-long train that was trimmed and lined with white feathers, a pair of feathery wings on the back, and her veil was long enough to reach the ground and extend past her train. She also had a tiara, gloves, and in addition to her actual bouquet, there was another one in the middle of her wings. Lulu's dress has an even crazier design, with the gigantic black lace, the low-cut fur collar, and an underskirt made of practically three gazillion belts. Ironically, it's easier to pull off than Yuna's wedding dress (what with fur, lace, and even the gajillion belts being easier to find/make than hundreds of pure-white feathers), but even then a common cosplayer complaint is that they need at least two people to help them walk from the weight of the belt-skirt.
    • Many of the dressspheres in Final Fantasy X-2 are pimped out. Yuna's default gunslinger outfit has a white bustier and a blue side Showgirl Skirt that has three layers each with white frilled edging.
    • Ashe wears a couple in Final Fantasy XII. Her Fairytale Wedding Dress has loads of layers, lace, and gold trimming. Her mourning dress also has plenty of lace, symbol embroidery, and a short underskirt over the long overskirt.
    • Maggie, the lady of Moscet Manor in Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, wears a pink skirt with gold trim, similar sleeves that are like fans, and a wide feathered headdress.
    • The heroine of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord wears a dress that is black and purple on one side and white and pink on the other, both with lots of frills, and gold trimming on the light side.
    • In Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Crystal Bearers, after Althea is revealed as a princess, she wears a yellow and orange dress with frill trimming, puff sleeves, and a leaf motif on the skirt.
    • Final Fantasy Type-0 has some. Caetuna wears a black underdress with a multi-colored overdress, gold trimming, a red bustier with brocade, frills on the shoulders and cuffs, a red cape, and the overskirt cut in leaf-like layers. Queen Andoria wears a blue dress where the blue goes in a gradient that turns white at the bottom, the shoulders have several layers of fabric, hanging sleeves, a fancy embroidered design on the chest, a thick belt with a clover-like design, and a huge circular headdress that flares out like a skirt and has a huge strip of fabric hanging from the back. The Divas wear frilly, lacy dresses that can be seen on the games' logo.
    • Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII gets in on the action with the Midnight Mauve, a stunning piece of formal wear for a play Lightning takes part in.
  • Erika's Downloadable Content in Fire Emblem Awakening includes a huge white dress with loads of frills and ruffles, gold trimming, a red ribbon elaborately wrapped around the top of the skirt, both the overskirt and underskirt have fabric layering, another overskirt with gauzy fabric cut like large feathers, and Giant Poofy Sleeves that flare out at the top and have lacy trimming.
  • Pimped out dresses (any clothes for that matter) is a staple of Granado Espada, with loads of lace, frills, and layering. The Christmas Mode even has plenty of Happy Holidays Dresses and Sexy Santa Dresses.
  • Alfina's regular outfit in Grandia III is fairly fancy on its own (blue trimming, little holes over the chest, gauzy gloves, and a gold belt with jewels studding it), her Communicator dress is even more fancy, with a long skirt, heavy floral motif and brocade, and lots of gauze draping over it. Dahna wears a red and black dress with large purple ribbons and trimmed with gold and jewels. Hect wears a green dress with lots of red bows trimming it. Violetta wears a really short red dress (almost a jacket with no pants) with heavy trimming of black ruffles.
  • The Growlanser games are on the high end of Costume Porn, so this shows up a lot.
  • In Growlanser I:
    • There is Louise with a red and white dress that has trimming of gold, and edging of white fur.
    • Karen wears a black dress that has a white frilled apron like a maid's dress, and has Giant Poofy Sleeves that have gold designs on them.
    • Misha wears a white and orange dress that gold trimming and Skirt over Slacks where most of the skirt is translucent.
    • One of Julia's outfits is a white and purple dress with gold trimmings, giant poofy sleeves, and a skirt where most of it is translucent.
    • Amelia wears a blue dress with puff sleeves, golden ribbons, and belt-like decorations on the sides of the dress.
    • Melfie wears a pink and white dress with a gold-trimmed bustier and overskirt, ruffles, and a symbol decorating the chest.

  • In Growlanser III:

    • The princess of the second game wears a dress trimmed with white fur, has a black leather bustier and long black leather boots, a skirt split into two sides, and a jeweled pendant that has a star/pyramid hybrid shape.
  • While the ladies in the Harvest Moon series often wears dresses that are at least moderately fancy, one of the grandest is worn by the goddess in "Save the Homeland". It's a green, gold, and red dress where the colors blend like gradients, it has huge hanging sleeves, an overskirt, and a long jewel hanging from the center of the neckline.

The other is in Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 5, when she willingly becomes LeChuck's demon bride and gets a Gothic version of a Little Black Dress (complete with a revealing Gem-Encrusted black bustier/corset worn under a see-through sheer black fabric sleeveless blouse with a black sash belt, a dark gray broomstick skirt and black dress boots, along with gem encrusted black Opera Gloves, and an eerie-glowing black tiara), which she wears through the remainder of the game, even when she is reverted to her no-longer demonic self.
  • One of Elise's dresses in My World My Way is a pink dress with black lace and ruffles, and white bows.
  • Bad Girl in No More Heroes wears a pink and white dress with lots of ruffles, puff sleeves, a Giant Waist Ribbon, and a skirt with a crinoline frame under it that causes the skirt to sway with her Sexy Walk.
  • Gwendolyn wears two in Odin Sphere. The first is her Battle Ballgown with the bird wing skirt. The second is her mother's traditional dress with the black bustier, black Opera Gloves, and over skirt with two layers of overskirts (one white and one blue) over the black underskirt. Velvet wears a red and black Mini Dress Of Power, with gold decorations, puff sleeves, and a Showgirl Skirt.

  • One of Elana's outfits in Pandoras Tower Until I Return To Your Side is a blue-green and white dress with lots and lots of gold trimming, and a vei-like headdress that is also heavily gold trimmed.

  • Etoile of Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. She even brags about the cost of one of her dresses.
  • Elektra of Rune Factory Oceans wears a pink dress despite her family not being rich. The dress has lots of white ruffles, pink lace and frills, a heart decoration on the skirt, and a jewel brooch. She does take advantage of the dress by using some of the frills and flounces as pockets for her dressmaking tools.
  • Many dresses in Skies of Arcadia from the empresses's dress with feathers arranged like wings, to Fina's dress with the gold trimming and tiny Cleavage Window (which has a power focusing use beyond just Fanservice), to Clara's pink dress with the loads of bows, frilled petticoat, and overskirt with the sides laced together.

  • In Super Mario Bros. Princess Peach's pink dress started out pretty simple, but as graphics advanced, it got more pimped out. First was a small overskirt and a brooch over her chest.

    • Daisy wears a dress that is just as pimped out, as her outfits tend to mostly match Peach's, despite her being a Tomboy Princess to Peach's Princess Classic.
  • The Fairlions in the Super Robot Wars Original Generation series. Yes, they're Humongous Mecha. But they were made as showpieces for the princess of The Kingdom, and piloted by she and her Badass Gothic Lolita bodyguard. The Angeleg is also similar to this, with added wings, of course.
  • Quite a few in the Tales Series games, whether it's a player character or NPC.

  • Touhou features many "monsters" that, to fit its theme, turn into Moe Anthropomorphism forms of the monsters they are supposed to be. In cases like Yamame, who is supposed to be a spider monster, her only (outwardly) monsterous features are in the clothing she wears.

  • Princess Zelda of The Legend of Zelda didn't have a defined or even fancy dress, at least in-game, until The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, although the dress appeared in the instructions for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and became her standard dress since. The dress itself has a pink-to-purple top half with a gold emblem over the chest, a white-to-rose skirt with a banner showing Hyrule heraldry hanging from a golden belt, and her golden diadem with a massive jewel (usually red) at the center. She almost always wears Opera Gloves, gold shoulder guards attached to her chest emblem, and occasionally a cape. The younger Zeldas don't wear the big Triforce-shaped earrings that the older Zeldas do. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Zelda wears two sets of smaller earrings and has the most Gem-Encrusted, pimped out dress of all.
    • The princess in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link wears a pink dress with a wide bell skirt, white ribbon trimming the bottom of the skirt, and little puff sleeves.
