'''Basic Trope''': A character is put in bandages as Fetish Fuel.
* '''Straight''': After an epic battle, [[ActionGirl Alice]] is seen in hospital with some bandages around her torso.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Alice, Bob, Claire, Danny and Ellie are all wearing nothing but bandages.
** Alternatively: Alice is wearing so many bandages she could be mistaken for an unusually attractive mummy.
* '''Downplayed''': Alice is only wearing a tank top while a bandage is being put on her arm.
* '''Justified''': Alice has taken some pretty serious damage, the doctor's had to cut them out of their clothing to save their life and they haven't had a chance to get some spare clothing.
* '''Inverted''': Alice is usually MsFanservice, but when she's injured she has to wear a special containment suit that cover her body.
* '''Subverted''': Alice's bandages are bloody and her injuries are clearly horrific.
* '''Double Subverted''': Alice has more bandages put over them to hide the blood.
* '''Parodied''': Alice stubs her toe. Cue shot of her wrapped head to toe in bandages.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Alice's injury is treated with due seriousness, but later we get a good look at her bandaging up after a shower when she's nearly healed.
* '''Averted''': They live in the future, where medical technology has rendered bandages obsolete.
* '''Enforced''': "We need more {{fanservice}}." "We'll give everyone a ShirtlessScene in hospital after the big fight." "That sounds a bit risque..." "Fine, we'll cover the girls up with bandages."
* '''Lampshaded''': "Doc, stock up on bandages. Alice and Claire are about to fight [[BigBad Lord Lacerator]].
* '''Invoked''': Alice asks the doctor to cover her in bandages, but not [[{{Stripperiffic}} too many]], so she can laugh at Bob's reaction.
* '''Exploited''': Bob decides to have Alice debrief their superiors after the fight, knowing they'll be distracted and not ask to many questions.
* '''Defied''': Alice has a HealingFactor. She doesn't need any bandages.
* '''Discussed''': "[[SayMyName Alice!]] Alice!" "[[MajorInjuryUnderreaction I'm fine...]]" "You'll be OK...hell you'll look pretty cute in bandages."
* '''Conversed''': "Alice has been injured?" "Awesome, she'll be in bandages at the end!"
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Alice feels vulnerable wearing nothing but bandages.
** A show plays it so that the bandages are covering extremely gruesome wounds and she is slowly dying; in other words, the show reminds us that extensive bandaging is ''not'' a good thing.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** The fact that [[MrFanservice Danny]]'s in a similar situation in the bed next to her makes up for it.
** Alice's wounds aren't half as bad as her myriad bandages suggest; her doctor is just prone to MinorInjuryOverreaction.
* '''Played For Laughs''': A combination of this being a good time to relax, her injuries and the restrictive nature of her bandages temporarily turns Alice into a CuteClumsyGirl.
* '''Played For Drama''': Alice insists she's fine, however the bandages make her [[MuggingTheMonster look vulnerable]] causing her to be attacked by a mugger. She fights him off but reopens some of her wounds in the process and must be rushed back to hospital before bleeding to death.
