* '''Pantless normal and {{Talking Animal}}s:''' More common than shirtless or fully dressed normal animals, {{Nearly Normal Animal}}s, {{Talking Animal}}s, and {{Partially Civilized Animal}}s as shirts, jackets, and sweaters without pants allow animals to "do their business" without soiling themselves. One example is Abu the monkey from ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''.

* '''Rarity of bare-bottomed female Funny Animals:''' Again, a skirt is used as a tertiary sexual characteristic. Otherwise, you may need to add a [[HairDecorations hair]] [[AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal dec]]. Notice [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts Daisy Duck's]] huge bow. The most common examples bare-bottomed or pantless female animals are birds, but a few are mammals. [[Franchise/DonkeyKong Dixie Kong]] and [[WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck Gosalyn]] are two other such examples.

* '''Rarity among {{Beast M|an}}en:''' Few {{Beast M|an}}en appear half dressed, whether shirtless or pantless. Half-dressed {{Beast M|an}}en are less common than half-dressed {{Civilized Animal}}s and Funny Animals because {{Beast M|an}}en are more human than they are animal and the censors will tend to intervene, [[NippleAndDimed especially if they're female]]. Shirtless male {{Beast M|an}}en are more common than the shirtless female and both genders of the pantsless variants because shirtless men aren't taboo like the other two variants. Furthermore, {{Beast M|an}}en ''dress'' [[FullyDressedCartoonAnimal like humans]] as a shorthand way to say that unlike FunnyAnimal which is a metaphor for humans and social commentary, {{Beast M|an}}en are humans, except they're not (they're usually found in settings where humans can't exist and thus can't be used, such as AfterTheEnd or ALongTimeAgoInAGalaxyFarFarAway). While some authors will try to justify a nude BeastMan by giving the character [[FurIsClothing puffier fur (Or feathers if they are a bird) around their pelvis area]] or by being slightly more anatomically correct (Reptiles and amphibians), they can still fall under the UncannyValley because the audience will notice that [[NonHumansLackAttributes something is missing]].

* '''Shirtless male {{Funny Animal}}s:''' Sometimes, an male animal character will wear pants, shorts, or overalls, but adding a shirt would push the character too close to the PettingZooPeople tier, so they go shirtless. Sometimes done for {{Fanservice}}, compare WalkingShirtlessScene. Examples include WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse, WesternAnimation/MagillaGorilla, [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Yakko Warner]], and WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit.
