Added DiffLines:

* Male characters in ''Anime/{{Free}}'' are never depicted with nipples, despite the series' [[FemaleGaze focus on shirtless]] {{Bishonen}}.


Added DiffLines:

* Male characters in ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' never have nipples, [[ZigzaggedTrope yet]] young boys have visible genitalia on several occasions.

Added DiffLines:

* The [=3D=] animation short ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6-KKRTW6jk Eden]]'' depicts both [[Literature/TheBible Adam and Eve]] without nipples. Eve's breasts are supposed to be covered with GodivaHair, but the effect falters while the snake seduces her, revealing her to be as nippleless as Adam.


* Volug in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn'' has the distinction of being the only shirtless guy in the party, and he has no nipples. Largo in ''Path of Radiance'' was more or less the same.

* Early on in the time-travelling segment of ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' 100 years in the past, Kushi's past counterpart at one point bathes naked in the village's river, conveniently positioned with her back turned towards you, and you can't get close enough for a closer look without being caught. However, distancing the camera further away from the player character and carefully positioning it in from of her reveals she possesses Barbie anatomy, lacking visible nipples.

However, distancing the camera further away from the player character and carefully positioning it in from front of her reveals she possesses Barbie anatomy, lacking visible nipples.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' has the Lost Girl/Nymph, a nude enemy posing as an equally-nude NPC with no genitals. For some reason, her sprite appears to have GodivaHair in addition to that, which is a bit redundant.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''Anime/GundamBuildDivers'', when Riku first enters GBN (as well as the first opening), he's flying through cyberspace naked and without genitalia. In a case of BookEnds, when [[spoiler:Sarah]] is drawn featureless when [[spoiler:she heads into the real world.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/WhiteNoiseOnline'': The paranormal creature stalking the investigators has nothing down there.


** When modders discovered that characters in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' were anatomically correct, a MoralGuardians shitstorm ensued. For this reason, Bethesda delayed the release of modding tools for ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' until this trope was in full force.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' zigzags this. All Disney characters are drawn according to their original design, which means some have nipples (Tarzan, Triton), some don't (Aladdin). The OriginalGeneration averts this, though; when Sora, Xehanort's Heartless, and Ventus are shown shirtless, they clearly have nipples.


* ''Anime/{{Naruto}}''. The eponymous character has no nipples, and neither do any of the female characters (in any rare instances of fanservice). Exceptions:
** Not in the anime, but in the manga, you can see bits of the areola when Naruto does his Oiroke no Jutsu (Sexy Jutsu) the first couple times. They seem to have been sticking to this trope since then though.

Added DiffLines:

** In addition to not having nipples, White Zetsu doesn't have genitalia as far as we know. It's noticeable because [[FullFrontalAssault he always goes naked]] every time he separates from Black Zetsu. In the case of his clones, their genitalia are conveniently replaced by some kind of [[BuffySpeak zigzag-patterned plant deformity...thing]].


A similar effect can be achieved in [[{{Film}} live]] [[LiveActionTV production]] by the actors wearing flesh-coloured bathing suits, or applying patches to specific areas. The absence of private parts can be more jarring in live action when you're given a chance to notice it, so these days it's typically used as backup to help camouflage areas that will be mainly obscured by other means or shown for only a fraction of a second, instead of being shown to the viewer in a straightforward fashion.

It's rather odd that Old Navy would even go the route of using male eye-candy, but after seeing nothing but American Apparel ads, it was difficult to complain....

* ''ComicBook/TheIntimates'' has Destra, who walks around shirtless all day. She's got a sheer cape draped over her shoulders that technically covers her breasts, but it's ''sheer''. She doesn't seem to have nipples, but artist Giuseppe Camuncoli did a few sketches of her with them plainly visible -- apparently the reader is supposed to just imagine they're there in-universe.

** In ''The Little Mermaid'', when Ariel first becomes human, and is taken to the surface by Sebastian and Flounder, the area between her legs can be seen, but no detail is drawn.
** Hercules seems to have nipples, if the little swirls on his pecs (spirals and swirls are a big part of the movie's art style, including people's ''ears'') are any indication. They're mainly visible when he's a teenager, wearing a toga that only goes over one shoulder.

Mike and the Bots point out this trope by commenting on the womens' uniform skin tone and lack of nipples.

The commentary, by the director and Blonsky's actor, have them pointing out that since the Hulk has pants, he's got to have something under them, but the Abomination does not. While we're on the subject of Creator/TimRoth's audio commentary, the absence of visible external genitalia only gets a passing mention when compared to Roth's complaints towards Abomination's anatomy and the lack thereof, with regard to the [[spoiler:ears]]. Whether this is a true subversion or Roth had his tongue firmly in his cheek -- answers on a postcard, please....

* In ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanOnStrangerTides'', perpetually-naked mermaids play a central role. In most cases, they are shown from the back, or with GodivaHair or SceneryCensor covering their chest, but in the few scenes where the upper body is visible the actress is clearly wearing a skin suit to cover her nipples. (When one magically grows legs for a few minutes, there is also a ModestyTowel in effect).

* Billy the Gay Doll is marketed as "anatomically correct". In context this means that the "twelve inch scale" figues of Billy (white), Tyson (black), and Carlos (latino) are 12 1/2 inches tall, have improbable muscles, detailed nipples, and a "starting to show interest" penis that reaches half way down the thigh. Foreskin, molded pubic hair, and testicles can also be seen. In scale condoms "not for human use" are available, presumably to encourage safe(r) sex.

* 1:6 scale(12 inch) action figures often have no anatomical details. Males rarely have nipples and females are featureless, as with Ken and Barbie. This is especially true of the 12" body used by Hasbro, which often went so far as to sculpt simple underwear onto the body. Of course, such details are rarely ever needed as the toy is dressed in full clothing anyway. Takara's Cy Girls line, which expanded on the 1:6 scale body for a poseable female figure, also lacked any detail. However, many newer companies, such as ZC Girl, expanded on the Cy Girls body design with extra articulation, and often include nipples on the breasts. Newer male figures may or may not have nipples, depending on the specific company and/or body. But a few companies are also experimenting with "seamless" bodies, such as Phicen, which use a silicon outer skin over a plastic internal articulated skeleton. Their female bodies feature nipples and genitals, partly because the lack of visible articulation cuts encourages skimpy clothing. But the degree of success of these bodies varies as they often suffer from severe folds and lumps when joints are bent, and potential breakage of the internal skeleton. The technology required to make these bodies hasn't really caught up yet to the needs of the design, though newer bodies seem to do better than older ones. There have also been a few male bodies which have genitals, sometimes switchable.

It's fairly obvious in some of shots of Ethan showering, and they don't even ''try'' to hide it in the police station's restroom. Technically, both models were anatomically correct during the development of the game. [[http://www.gamesradar.com/heavy-rain-full-frontal-nudity-see-it-here/ Evidence here]]. Although there is no official comment as to why this anatomy was removed, the fact that it was released in Japan first may have something to do with it.

Averted by the first DVD cover, where Christy Karacas' original depiction of the character is shown to bear nipples (although his crotch is obscured).

* In the 1950's, the first generation of nudist mags of the "Health and Efficiency" genre permitted monochrome photos of female nipples, but anything visible below the waist was severely airbrushed smooth. For a generation of men whose only exposure to female nudity had been mags if this ilk, discovering ''real'' women had pubic hair and other things were going on down there... well, it could come as a traumatic shock. Similarly, 1950's "art and public education" movies about life in nudist camps and how healthy and life-engendering the lifestyle was, would often be carefully edited to avoid any genitals nearer than fifty feet of the camera - these were acceptable in long-shot, however. ''Very'' long-shot.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/DevilMan'' The Demon Bird, in Akira's nightmare at one point he dreams he's falling through a bottomless cavern naked, his crotch is covered by shadows most of the time, but then when he falls through a lighter area you can see he has no genitalia.


* * There's a male stranger you can meet in ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption2'' who's full frontal nude who completely averts this but the PlayableCharacter plays this straight. A since patched over glitch allowed you to get him out of the bathtub and run around naked and he had Ken anatomy. There are several places where you can find pictures of nude women but the only nudity you really see from them in the game itself is ToplessnessFromTheBack.
