is a good (if somewhat obscure) example of a work with non-fanservice example.
A group of choirboys get into a pillow fight when they are supposed to be sleeping. It is treated as childish mischief, like a Food Fight
. I think it is safe to say that Walt Disney did not have titillation in mind when they made it, and if any our editors see it as fanservice, I'd rather they keep that to themselves (see the recent threads on not being creepy).
Also, the fact that it is named Pillow Fight
but includes more than pillow fights means that is is being vastly underused for non-pillow examples. It is also attracting, even on the page, examples of pillow fights that don't seem to have anything to to with female fanservice.
There are several examples of this page that are troublesome, given the definition. A number of the examples simply say things like "Character X and Y have one" without specifying what type of Pillow Fight
activity (Trope) the characters have. The editor simply assumed that because the trope name was Pillow Fight
, that referring to the trope automatically means you are refering to an actual pillow fight, even though things like volleyball can count, under the right circumstances.
You also have examples like:
You go to Madeline
and find out that "Madeline
is a series of children's picture books first published in 1939 by Ludwig Bemelmans, about a little French boarding school student, her eleven friends, her teacher..."
So what we are saying that a 1939 children's book about a little girl at boarding school contains the following:
- A gathering of female characters in a not particularly serious battle or physical challenge for purposes of [[ Fanservice titillation ]]. Often, literally, a pillow fight (i.e., at a Slumber Party) but may include [[ Fetish Fuel similar situations ]] like volleyball, particularly when [[ Stripperific wardrobe is skimpy ]] and the action is bouncy.
I think not.
