At the base of this, it's down to [[DoubleStandard social conditioning]] in most Western societies: a "naked" female character is seen as much more sexual/lewd than "naked" male character even though nothing which counts as actual nudity is on show in either case.

** It should be noted that there ''have'' been a few female characters without pants in the comics, such as Sally Acorn, Sasha Cat, and Liza the Chameleon, but these are the exception rather than the rule.

* The Koopa Troopas in most of the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' games are generally "clothed" if one counts their shells as clothes. ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld2YoshisIsland'', and ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' do show Koopa Troopas without their shells, where it's revealed they're wearing just a T-shirt underneath and lack pants. While the T-shirt rule applies to the males, the rare females that do appear in the games are never seen without their shells.


* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': On top of some BizarreSexualDimorphism, the Wilson family have Jackie and Rachel fully clothed while Harold and Tobias only wear accessories (Harold has a tie, Tobias a sweatband). Otherwise, male and female characters wear similar amount of clothing, most commonly none.

Some societies of anthropomorphized animals have their own gender-based double standard dictating who is allowed to wear what clothes. The most common result is the females being held to a higher standard of dress than the males. One possible answer could be that once one is a funny animal, it's less about modesty and more about accessorizing. If you overthink it, this does mean females are essentially wearing a redundant layer of clothes if you assume FurIsClothing. Cartoon character design tends to facilitate this trope. Female characters tend to be [[NonMammalMammaries given breasts]] even if the animal they're based on lacks them (requiring them to cover up), and male characters will [[NonHumansLackAttributes lack genitalia]] (removing the need for them to cover up).

* While ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' don't actually wear clothing, and the ones mentioned can be either gender, both of the Fire-type starters introduced in the 3DS Pokémon generations seem to be a play on this. Gen 6's Delphox is a feminine-looking Pokémon and the fur of most of its body is red and designed like a robe, giving it a FullyDressedCartoonAnimal look. Meanwhile, Gen 7's Incineroar is a masculine-looking Pokémon and its torso is colored gray and resembles a wrestler tank top, while its head is black on top and red on bottom, resembling a wrestler's mask. The rest of its body is red with some black stripes, making it look like a HalfDressedCartoonAnimal.
