Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibleHulk'': This show's depiction of ComicBook/She-Hulk is known for how sexualized she was, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJABWeoqVCI starting from her debut episode]]. Season 2 of the show also has this reputation thanks to She-Hulk being bumped up to series regular.


* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsForgottenFriendship'' is best known amongst ''Equestria Girls'' fans due to it's [[BeachEpisode beach section]] which has the main girls in swimsuits [[note]]Granted, rather conservative ones due to the age bracket of the franchise, but anything of the sort has never been done in ''Equestria Girls'', movie or not, before ''Forgotten Friendship''[[/note]].



[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* Literature/TheBible:
** Mary Magdalene's status as "Prostitute" is [[PopularHistory firmly ingrained in descriptions of her]], despite the fact that [[WordOfDante she's never once described as such in the Bible itself]].
** When "David danced before the [[AC:Lord]]", it's often assumed he danced naked. How people got this idea is a bit puzzling considering that the text specifically says he was clothed[[note]]2 Samuel 6:14 says he wore "a linen ephod"; 1 Chronicles 15:27 agrees and also says "a robe of fine linen", and neither precludes the possibility that he was wearing more[[/note]].
** David's affair with Bathsheba gets more attention than most of the other events of his reign, probably because it includes the account of David [[ThePeepingTom watching Bathsheba bathing on the roof]] (setting up the UriahGambit).
** The book of ''Song of Songs'' (aka ''Song of Solomon'') is best known for containing some very racy erotic love poetry, despite many commentators who try to [[EverybodyIsJesusInPurgatory interpret it as theological allegory]].
** This is no doubt part of the reason that the story of Literature/SamsonAndDelilah, with several episodes of sexual intrigue, is far better known than the other stories in the Literature/BookOfJudges.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* "But You Screw One Goat", the former name of BestialityIsDepraved, is the punchline of a joke that owes its humor as much if not more to the trope under discussion here than the one that actually bore its name.
* From [[Wiki/TVTropes This Wiki]] on the BodyPaint page at one point:
-->'''Troper:''' I saw an Israeli war movie (forget the name, sorry) that began and ended with a scene showing the protagonist and his girlfriend rubbing paint all over each other while making love. Not sure what this had to do with the rest of the movie.\\
'''Other troper:''' Who cares?
[[/folder]]



* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic:
** He gets kidnapped in The Game Heroes ad. Fangirls completely failed to notice what they were selling, being distracted by the pretty boy getting manhandled and a gun being put to his head.
** The ''Film/SurfNinjas'' review is a DyingDream episode, with lots of clever SarcasmMode, a nice scene where The Other Guy and friends are looking after Critic, and Optimus Prime bringing him back to life by dying for his sins. And what do people remember? "[[ShirtlessScene GEEEEEEENIUS!]]"
** ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'' and ''Film/Jungle2Jungle'' reviews...? Oh! They're the ones where Doug just shows off the epic job his wife did on messing up his neck, right?
* From the way TGWTG fandom tells it, you'd think the whole eighteen minutes of the ''WebVideo/{{Sonic}}'' movie was just Creator/DougWalker getting abused and then made to kneel.
* Probably the most popular gif from ''WebVideo/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses'' is Doug giving a blowjob to the pipe.



** The cartoon had plenty of GettingCrapPastTheRadar but there seem to be more lists compiling all the innuendos and sex jokes hidden in there.



* One of the most popular episodes of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' is the BeachEpisode where Zuko, Ty Lee, Mai, and Azula all wear swimsuits. It also has a lot of character development, character insight, and some LesYay between Ty Lee and Azula but the "swimsuit" part definitely stands out.



* ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'' parodies this when Creator/JessicaBiel guest stars AsHerself. When no one knows her from the movies she lists, she grudgingly references the time she posed topless for ''Rolling Stone'' magazine at age seventeen. Everyone remembers that.
* Possibly due to it [[GirlShowGhetto being female geared]], many men mainly remember ''WesternAnimation/{{Braceface}}'' for the BreastExpansion episode.

that.



* Not in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' itself, but part of the show's infamy comes from the sheer volume of RuleThirtyFour artwork there is of it. The Brony fandom is often associated entirely with that kind of artwork, even though it's only a small section of the fanbase.



* ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'''s memorable characters, great animation, and plethora of catchy music are sadly far out-shined for most by Kimmie's infamous ass dance in episode 10. Say it with us now: [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar SHAKE IT, BAKE IT, BOOTY QUAKE IT!]]



* From the way people discuss ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' you would think it's nothing but pandering to every fetish possible.

However, said hero is an AffectionateParody of {{Shonen}}-style protagonists who is [[ChivalrousPervert genuinely heroic and respectful towards women]], and the characters and setting are surprisingly well-developed.

[[folder:Magazines]]
* ''Magazine/{{Playboy}}'' was once credible enough to interview people like Jimmy Carter and Martin Luther King Jr. But the pictures of naked women were what it was best known for, thus spawning an entire [[IReadItForTheArticles trope]].
* ''The Daily Sport'' is a discontinued British magazine that is now rather infamous for counting down the days until a model could pose topless on her sixteenth birthday.
* One of ''The Sun'''s most famous (and infamous) features is its [[PageThreeStunna 'Page 3' girls]] - models who pose fully nude. Plenty of these models go on to become celebrities in their own right because of this.
[[/folder]]



* Music/AtomicKitten's "If You Come to Me" is remembered for the music video showing the girls nude with animations of clouds and butterflies on their body. As they were quite modest for a GirlGroup, this is one of their only blatant {{Fanservice}} videos.
* {{Music/Lit}} While the band did have a #1 song for a record-breaking 12 weeks, what most people remember about them is Music/{{Miserable}}, where they were EatenAlive by a giant, bikini-and-high-heel-clad Creator/PamelaAnderson after she got tired of them [[ColossusClimb climbing all over her.]]



* All anyone remembers about house music producer and DJ L'il Louis? [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Kiss_(song) That track]] with the woman having a '[[Series/TopGearUK Lady Chatterley crisis]]' over it.
* All anyone remembers about The Lunacy of Duke Venomania in the Franchise/EvilliousChronicles is the attractiveness of the [[{{Bishonen}} titular character]] and how he magically brainwashes a harem full of woman he kidnapped into being his sex slaves. And sometimes the [[MythologyGag cameo from Josephine]]. In fact, it's quite possibly the best-known song in the series behind the beloved Daughter of Evil and Servant of Evil for this reason. You'll find few people who know the backstory or emotional themes behind the whole ordeal, even though they are hinted at in the song.
* Music/NineInchNails? They're the 'fuck you like an animal' guys, right? And the guys who made that video where that one guy got naked and then gets tortured by a machine?

song.



* Neo-Soul singer D'angelo, got this hard after his "Untitled" music video...
* Benny Benassi's videos. "Satisfaction", for example, was a mocked-up commercial video of women in bikinis using power tools.
* The Dandy Warhols gained a lot of notoriety for keyboardist Zia [=McCabe=] playing topless at times. She gave up when a large number of guys started showing up to gigs just for that and acting like assholes. And their most famous song? "Bohemian Like You," due to the video with a few seconds each of full frontal nudity from a WrenchWench and a [[FanserviceWithASmile waiter]].



* Inverted in Music/LadyGaga's "Telephone". The video is so full of {{fanservice}} and Fetish Fuel that [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment it's Best Known for]] the Sandwich. For poorly explained reasons, Gaga and Beyonce go into a roadside cafe, make poisoned sandwiches that kill everyone, and seem pretty pleased with their work.
* Not quite fanservice, but the video clip for Latin band Miranda's song "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8X4wF8OOKU Ritmo & Decepción]]" is only remembered by some due to the brief Music/{{Restart}} cameo.
* Rapper ''Petey Pablo'' had a video called ''Freek-A-Leek''. But the only thing people remember from it is the model Esther Baxter aka ''"Ms. Freek-A-Leek"''.
* Christina Millian had quite a few music videos early in her career. But the only video people seem to remember is ''"Dip It Low"''.
* R&B group H-Town is mostly known for being that trio who danced like raunchy shirtless male strippers and sung ''Knockin The Boots''.
* Everybody remembers the music video for "Here I Go Again" by Music/{{Whitesnake}} because it features 1980s hottie Tawny Kitaen writhing around sensuously on the hood of a car. The video became even ''more'' famous when viewers discovered that there's a nipple slip that the censors missed (the video was quickly edited to remove the split-second of nudity). This has unfortunately fed the prejudice that Whitesnake's music is automatically stupid, [[OvershadowedByControversy even though they stand as one of the most ambitious and sophisticated pop-metal bands in the history of the genre]].
* Music/DavidLeeRoth once did a cover of Music/TheBeachBoys classic "California Girls". The only reason anybody still remembers Roth's version is because the music video featured more girls in bikinis than Cancun during Spring Break.
* Some of the more positive Website/YouTube/Failblog comments regarding the music video for "Dying Naked" by Music/{{Skelteria}} were about the Reaper Girl.

* While Tiffany (last name Darwish) is still best known as one of the most popular mall singers of the 1980s (she's the redhead, the blonde was Debbie Gibson), she has been singing and recording albums ever since. She released an album in 2000 called "The Color of Silence," which was highly praised and considered one of the best pop albums of the year. However, it wasn't until she did a ContractualPurity-shattering photoshoot for ''Playboy'' that she got any mainstream attention to let people know the damn thing existed.
* "Wrecking Ball"? Oh, you mean the music video where Music/MileyCyrus rides a {{styrofoam|Rocks}} [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin wrecking ball]] like a tire swing naked? You might also remember her [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything licking the sledgehammer]]. Or the vaguely horrifying [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xljA6zJn4I parody]] by Ron Jeremy. Good luck BrainBleach -ing that one away.
* Early '80s UK pop group Bow Wow Wow mixed up punkish energy, surf music, and African-inspired beats and had a couple of hits, notably "I Want Candy", but they're still chiefly remembered for the UK cover of their first album [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/See_Jungle!_See_Jungle!_Go_Join_Your_Gang_Yeah,_City_All_Over!_Go_Ape_Crazy! ''See Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang Yeah, City All Over! Go Ape Crazy!'']], which featured the group recreating Edouard Manet's 1863 painting ''Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe''. The original painting features two guys and a girl having a picnic in the forest, except that the guys are fully clothed and the girl is completely naked. On Bow Wow Wow's album cover, the band is having a picnic in the forest, and all the guys in the band are fully clothed except Burmese/English singer Annabella Lwin, who's as naked as the girl in the painting. What makes this arguably FanDisservice is that she was ''fourteen'' when the album came out.[[note]]Unsurprisingly, the US version of the album features a different cover.[[/note]]

Case in point, there's a reason that She Bop (girl on girl rape) ''WebVideo/{{Aaron}}'' is a pretty good Irish ShortFilm about a troubled relationship between two brothers. What got the most infamous thread of V3. So far as characters go, Rosa Fiametta of V4 often gets this treatment, to comments when the point where her characterisation is simplified to just being trailer was released? Chris appearing shirtless for a sex maniac due to brief scene. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik0SWYOuoEU Seen here]], about six minutes in for those who are curious.
* A Website/YouTube video on a channel known as Vlogvetica featured a naked guy walking in
the frequency with which she gets it on.background, for maybe one second, and was never pointed out in the actual video. Guess what every single comment was about.
* For that matter, there are entire [=YouTube=] channels out there (seriously, countless numbers of them) ''dedicated'' to Fanservice. If they don't feature titillating scenarios created by the site owner, they'll include all manner of Fanservicey scenes from films and television -- in some cases, from movies and shows that are terrible or extremely obscure and worth watching ''[[JustHereForGodzilla only]]'' [[JustHereForGodzilla for the fanservice]].



* ''Podcast/KakosIndustries'' is a show placed in an interesting alternate, and much sexier, setting of the real world where being Evil is the norm of society. The characters are interesting, the music is catchy, and the writing is full of humor and fast wit...[[ArousedByTheirVoice But who cares when the main narrator's voice sounds like smooth, delicious honey glazing over your virgin ear canals.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Ironically considering the trope name, but {{Fanservice}} itself generally refers to anything put into a work specifically to please its fans (a scene between two fan-favourite characters for instance) - but it's most commonly associated with titillation or sexy stuff.


Added DiffLines:

* A tragic example was actress Carole Landis. A beautiful blonde who became famous for ''Film/OneMillionBC'' but was best known for her looks. Nicknamed 'The Chest' and 'The Ping Girl' because of her curvy figure, she longed to be taken seriously. She was known for dating lots of men who viewed her as a sex toy and, after being spurned by Rex Harrison (who she was deeply in love with), she committed suicide. It's speculated that she feared her looks fading as she approached thirty, and her career would be over. Jacqueline Susann based Jennifer North in ''Literature/ValleyOfTheDolls'' off her.
* Sharon Tate, who played Jennifer in ''Valley of the Dolls'', was often ignored when it came to her acting talents and people just focused on her sex appeal (since she was happy to do nudity). She was very disdainful of the film ''Don't Make Waves'' - which heavily marketed itself around her spending most of the runtime in a bikini. After her tragic death, Roman Polanski said that people always talked about her beauty but never about how ''good'' she was.
* Creator/JessicaAlba is best known for her MsFanservice roles in ''Film/FantasticFour2005'', ''Film/SinCity'' and especially ''Film/IntoTheBlue''. She despised the latter - as many scenes were shot behind her back with a body double in a bikini, which led to her spending most of it not wearing very much.

It could have had great humor, brilliant action sequences, diabolical villains or even philosophical ideas that could make you think. What everyone remembers, however, is the female lead's [[YouCanLeaveYourHatOn striptease]] in the UsefulNotes/{{Sweeps}} one year. Or, in an even more extreme case, a [[MaleFrontalNudity penis]] when it pops up on screen. This trope refers to the actions of characters rather than characterization.

Of course, one person's fanservice is another's FetishRetardant. This is particularly prominent ("[[DoubleStandard for some reason]]") any time there's a [[MrFanservice dude on display]] in a work with any meaningful proportion of straight men in the audience. But hey, remembered positively or negatively, it's all the same in the end--hype is hype. Such {{inver|tedTrope}}sions go below all the same.

Notable is the fact that Zeta-Jones wasn't naked or being seductive - just a famous and pretty woman talking about... something.

* ''[=GoDaddy=]'', the web hosting company, is mostly known for running ads featuring female NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, playing up her sex appeal. Some don't even know what the company does! This trope crosses over to Danica herself arguably, since much of her fame comes from her simply being an attractive female NASCAR driver.

It does contain sex scenes, but most of them are PG-13 at worst, and many of them are implied rather than shown.

* Early 80s UK pop group Bow Wow Wow mixed up punkish energy, surf music and African-inspired beats and had a couple of hits, notably "I Want Candy", but they're still chiefly remembered for the UK cover of their first album [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/See_Jungle!_See_Jungle!_Go_Join_Your_Gang_Yeah,_City_All_Over!_Go_Ape_Crazy!
