Bikini Warriors is a series of figures of girls role playing as fantasy classes created by Hobby Japan. Each of the characters are designed by various artists. A 12 episode anime series aired from July 7 to September 22, 2015, starring a group of these characters, Fighter, Mage, Paladin, and Dark Elf, as they set out on a quest to defeat the Demon Lord Deathgeld and his many minions. Oh, and they're all wearing bikinis. An OVA was released on December 19, 2015 and two more were released on December 7, 2016.

A manga was released online. A video game has also been confirmed to be in the making.

Tropes:

  • Affectionate Parody: Of RPGs.
  • Always Need What You Gave Up: The party sells off their elixirs in Episode 5 for a new staff for Mage, thinking that they have too much of them. Cue them being overpowered in the next dungeon.
  • Anime Anatomy: Partial aversion. Every single Bikini Warrior definitely has nipples as the OVA episodes make clear. What they also make clear, is that they do have genitals (as they get stimulated in certain episodes), but they are not visible in Ep 15 (nor is there any pubic hair), which features extensive full-frontal nudity from almost the entire cast.
  • Back for the Finale: Hunter and Valkyrie come back to help the heroes in episode 12.
  • Big Bad: Demon Lord Deathgeld is the In-Universe Final Boss and leader of the monsters who wants to Take Over the World, making him the main enemy that the four heroines must defeat. Not much of him is known beyond this, as the series is a non-serious spoof of JRPG games.

  • Cast Full of Gay: Confirmed by a couple of clips from episode 12 and the OVAs. Mage, Cleric, and Kunoichi are the only characters not confirmed to be into women in those episodes. And it's not like they were confirmed to be into men either.
  • Death Is Cheap:
    • When the party is forced to kill Mage, Mage's ghost tries to tell them that they can revive her by paying the town church.
    • Paladin's ability to turn into holy energy and blast the enemy is apparently reversible, although Fighter fears she might die for real someday.
  • Deconstructed Trope: Nearly every episode is dedicated to taking either one or two Eastern RPG tropes and running the consequences into the ground:
    • Episode 1: Chainmail Bikini: While buying new armor after being defeated in a dungeon, Fighter complains that the "armor" being sold by the blacksmith is practically the same thing. The blacksmith claims that the gear has attributes that make them more effective. When the team returns to the dungeon and face the same hazards, she and her companions discover the difference in the new "armor's" defense and resistance, despite their blatant skimpiness.
    • Episode 2: With This Herring: The heroes try to bribe the King into giving them more funds and equipment by reminding him of their hero status. This causes him to lock them up for their greed.
    • Episode 3: Kleptomaniac Hero: Paladin gets the idea to rob the townsfolk blind after convincing her companions that they're owed for putting their lives on the line. After all their thieving, the townsfolk repossess everything the heroes spent their looting on. The townsfolk even go as far as depriving them of their clothing.
    • Episode 4: Chain of Deals/Fetch Quest: Fighter just kills her quest giver instead of putting up with her increasingly embarrassing menial tasks.
    • Episode 5: Too Awesome to Use: The heroes sell their stock of elixirs under the assumption that they never needed them if they had so many rare curatives. This backfires when they need the elixirs badly in the next dungeon.
    • Episode 7: Overrated and Underleveled: A flashback to how Dark Elf convinced the heroes to let her join the party portrays her as an overblown adventurer that exaggerated her competence. Dark Elf is unsurprisingly shown to be useless in every adventure depicted for the remainder of the episode.
    • Episode 8: Optional Party Member: The two new characters that fight over the chance to join the party end up forming their own party instead because they like each other's company. They come back later.
    • Episode 9: Brainwashed and Crazy/Death Is Cheap: The party fails to understand that Mage is possessed by the wizard they killed, and are forced to kill her in self-defense. They also forget that Mage can be resurrected by the local church, so the heroes just leave her for dead. She’s fine by the next episode, though.
    • Episode 10: Bragging Rights Reward: Because the heroes are especially whiny when demanding a better prize from the Great Fairy than either of her two treasures, the Great Fairy leaves them with nothing for their trouble.
    • Episode 11: Heroic Sacrifice: Paladin only throws her life into possible danger because she's a masochist. It's also why she offers her life in place of the other heroes so much (well, that and Honor Before Reason).
    • Episode 14: Combat Medic: Valkyrie and Hunter are initially pleased to have Cleric in their party, only to realize later that while she's good at combat, she's a mediocre healer.
    • Episode 15: Informed Equipment/Infinity +1 Sword: The characters can't see the gear because it's literally not there. They’ve simply been fooled into thinking it is. So the "gear" is both effectively and literally useless for how much effort it likely took to acquire.
