* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' is an entire show based around super-powered women that fight in short skirts and high-heeled shoes/boots. Mitigated in that the suits are clearly a LeotardOfPower and aren't played for fanservice in-universe and out-of-universe, and they're actually practical for the agility and magic-based approach they use. Running in heels is still pretty much impossible. Interestingly Naoko Takeuchi is a female mangaka who actually fought her male editor to keep the skirts as short as she could.

In her normal state, she has [[{{Underboobs}} a shirt so short that it barely covers her breasts]], which she can remove to show her FetishRetardant mask and Hollow remains. Likewise, since her pants have no sides and are kept up by a thick sash. After her [[OneWingedAngel Resurrection]], she's completely nude, with strategically placed armor, which she justifies by having water-based powers. Meanwhile, out of her Fraccion, Mila Rose's default uniform and battle suit are rather revealing as well. However this is justified as their skin is strong enough to be armor.
** Nel is first introduced as a kid wearing a garb. That garb is torn to pieces, however, when she morphs into an adult.

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', Momo Yaoyozoru's superhero costume is a skintight leotard with AbsoluteCleavage. It's [[JustifiedTrope justified]] because her power is to create objects from her skin, so having more skin exposed allows her create more material more quickly.

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', Momo Yaoyozoru's superhero costume [[MsFanservice Midnight]] gives an interview discussing skimpy hero outfits in which she notes that for many heroes, this is actually practical, as a skintight leotard with AbsoluteCleavage. It's [[JustifiedTrope justified]] lot of quirks depend on exposed skin. Midnight's first outfit (which prompted legislation about skimpy costumes) worked for her because her power KnockoutGas is to create objects released from her skin, so having the more she shows the more powerful she is. Momo Yaoyorozu and Toru Hagakure also fall into this category- Momo's hero costume is an AbsoluteCleavage and [[BareYourMidriff Midriff-baring]] leotard, but her Quirk is creating objects from her body and she needs to expose large swathes of skin exposed allows to make big stuff like cannons. Toru's hero costume is a set of gloves and shoes, but she's [[InvisibleStreaker permanently invisible]] so there isn't really anything to show and she needs nudity to take full advantage of her create more material more quickly.quirk.

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'' around 98% of the characters use only a few garments of clothes at best in battle. After 100 chapters, if you find it weird (or impractical) to see people beating each other in only a scarf and pants, boxers, cocktail dresses, schoolgirl outfits or technically naked, you are watching it wrong..
** And then there's Gray, who normally wears modest clothing, but whose training to master ice magic involved stripping down to his undies in a cold climate. This caused him to pick up the habit of randomly stripping to his underpants when he's not paying attention. Lyon, who studied under the same master, doesn't do this as much but still strips sometimes in battle.

* [[MsFanservice All things considered]], Anime/CuteyHoney's costume is rather tame, not going much beyond some AbsoluteCleavage (at least when it [[ClothingDamage stays on]]). Then ''Re: Cutie Honey'' rolls along and her outfit becomes fairly skimpy.

* ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' avoids this for the most part with human characters (Mai and Aki had outfits with some short skirts and cleavage, and there were a few female Duel Academy students wearing bikinis - while at the beach - and that's pretty much all) but there are a few female monsters that fit, like Mai's Harpie Ladies (who wear suspender-strap bikinis), Asuka's Cyber Angel Idaten (with a brief bikini) and Judai's Burst Lady/Burstinatrix (whose skimpy outfit is... hard to describe). The dub tends to cover them and reduce cup size.

* Sisters Chocolat and Tira Misu's from ''Manga/SorcererHunters'' quite literally for their combat outfits. While Tira can easily hide her [[OfCorsetsSexy dominatrix outfits]] under her oversized cloak and dress, with the skimpy outfit she already wears, it's a mystery how Chocolat gets those jodhpurs on. How she manages to keep those thin pair of suspenders in place while she fights is another mystery in itself. Oh, did I mention she has ''[[FetishFuel no other top on]]''? The anime censors her slightly with a cropped sleeveless jacket, though it still barely covers her.
