Boxers with red/pink hearts

Other-print boxers

  • Bendy and the Ink Machine: When Henry is inside Boris the Wolf's safe house in Chapter 3, there is a pair of the Toon's overalls hanging up. Next to these is a pair of toony polka-dotted boxers. It's safe to assume that these are Boris's as well.
  • In Catherine, Vincent wears boxers with pink polka dots. And, since he sleeps in them, that's his outfit for the entire nightmare. The final boss will even tease him about it.
  • In Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, if you shoot the Wizard enemy with the Fruit Bazooka (or attack him by any method in the PAL version), he'll be reduced to white boxers with pink polka-dots. This pacifies him.
  • In the character videos in F-Zero GX, Antonio Guster and Blood Falcon strip down to their boxers (camouflage and pink with teddy bears!, respectively) while doing their laundry. In Captain Falcon's video, he splits his pants while saving Mrs. Arrow's baby, revealing red polka-dots.
  • In Punch-Out Wii, King Hippo has upgraded to star-print boxers.
  • The Soviet Premier in the Allied ending of Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 is found hiding under a desk wearing boxers with a red "Hammer and sickle" print motif (He had dressed a decoy in his uniform).
  • In another WarioWare: Smooth Moves example, one game has a quick draw contest to shoot your opponent's pants down. Both cowboys are wearing Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, and Starman boxers.
    • Wario himself has trouble keeping his pants up on the map screen.
  • In the Metal Slug series, the Prisoners Of War reward you for rescuing them by pulling a giant pair of blue-and-white-striped boxers out of their pants and dispensing an item from them.
    • Also, when the Mars People betray General Morden in Metal Slug 2/X and 3, they strip him to his undies. In 2/X, they're pink bikini briefs; in 3, polka-dot shorts.
  • Agent Smith in the Hitman games is often seen wearing boxer shorts printed with the US Flag. Similarly, some NPC's you can take clothes from will sometimes have pattern on their boxers (including the traditional hearts).
  • While merchandise and cameos often depict Arthur as wearing heart boxers (as noted above), official artwork has always put strawberries on his boxers instead. In Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, these strawberries were visible in-game for the first time.
    • In Marvel vs. Capcom 3, every one of Arthur's costumes gives him different boxers, with strawberries as the default. His alternates are blue and white vertical stripes, green with white polka dots, and gold with black stars.
    • Arthur wears vertically striped boxers in the obscure Wonderswan game (which also appear in one of his alternate outfits in MvC3).
    • As mentioned above, Maximo can acquire a variety of different boxers in his games, including monogrammed, cow-spotted, and dollar signs. In the second game, each print gives a different bonus.
    • Arthur's ending in Cannon Spike clearly shows the strawberry print.
  • In RosenkreuzStilette Freudenstachel, Grolla's heavily Ghosts 'n Goblins-themed stage includes Skeletal Knights that resemble Arthur, including armor that breaks off in one hit and strawberry-print boxers.
  • While monsters in Dragon Quest VIII don't wave any about when they do the move, Yangus pulls out two pairs of blue-and-white striped boxers when he performs the Underpants Dance move. For understandable reasons, this causes the Confusion status ailment.
  • Spyro: A Hero's Tail has Gnasty Gnorc reveal his red polka-dot boxers when he's goaded into swinging so hard that his staff/club sticks into the ground. More humiliating is the fact that this is his weak point.
  • In the ending of the PC version of Mario Is Missing!, the de-shelled Bowser is shown to wear red polka-dot boxers. Don't even begin to ask how that's supposed to work.
  • Vincent from Catherine spends the puzzle sections of the game in nothing but his polka-dot boxers (with the exception of stage 8, the Cathedral).
  • In one Solatorobo 4koma, Red is embarrassed that Chocolat is showing off the Asmodeus while his boxers are hanging to dry. One is white with a single red heart, the other is white with yellow stars. Another piece of official art shows a pair of blue-and-white striped boxers landing on Elh's head, but precisely whose they are is never said.
  • At the end of the first level of Plok, Plok finds a pair of polka-dot boxers instead of the flag he was looking for.
  • In Space Quest 5, Roger Wilco winds up hanging from a cliff on Thrakus with Beatrice clinging to his belt. If you don't help her up fast enough, his pants slide down, revealing polka-dot boxers.
  • The hermit crab enemies in Cool Spot are wearing polka-dot boxers under their shells, as seen when you shoot said shells off.
  • The clown boss in Glover has polka-dot boxers under his baggy pants, which slip down each time you hit him.
  • In Normality, Norm 2782 is left in his polka-dot boxers after protagonist Kent Knudson takes his uniform for a disguise (and doesn't give it back when he's done with it). Norm 2782 finally gets his clothes back in the ending cutscene.
  • Most of the male vampires in Akiba's Trip are wearing some sort of patterned underwear.
  • In Kid Icarus: Uprising, the enemy called Erinus is a cloaked figure that splits into two when it takes enough damage. The upper half keeps the cloak, while the lower half is left in pink striped boxers.
  • In Goblins 3, one of Were-Blount's Idle Animations has his pants drop, revealing red polka-dot boxers.
    • One of the loading screens in the same game shows Ooya the magician doing a handstand, revealing similar boxers under his robe.
  • In Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist, when Freddy drops his holsters at gunpoint, he accidentally drops his pants as well, exposing polka-dot boxers.
  • An early-game beetle enemy in Bug! loses its tough demenaour and exoskeleton when damaged, revealing a scrawny, shivering red bug in nothing but white boxers covered in red polka-dot print.
  • In addition to the red heart kind mentioned above, The Sims 2 includes tiger print, smiley face print, fruit print and polka-dotted printed boxers. The Sims 3 includes a few in the base game, adds a few more in some expansion packs and players can create custom ones in-game.
  • When you defeat Gordon Bowman from the Fu'un Series, his pants fall down, revealing boxers with bunny faces.
  • Phantom Doctrine: One of the pieces of intel that you can find is a memo telling people not to make fun of an agent who was trapped in a lift for three hours. It was hot in there, and he had to strip down to a pair of boxer shorts with "a fetching banana print."
  • Street Fighter V: Cody's Story Mode costume puts him in Mike Haggar's pants, which are much too big for him and droop down to expose his cow-print boxers. (More specifically, the cow is Holstein, a bonus pickup from old Capcom arcade games.)

Other men's underwear

  • At the end of Crash: Mind Over Mutant, Cortex fights Crash in red polka-dot briefs after he hulks out of his clothes.
  • In Kirby Super Star the mini-boss Jukid is wearing polka-dot underwear of some sort under his gi. It's hard to get more specific since he has no legs.
  • The Bokoblins in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword have a predilection for "fashionable undergarments" . . . "fashionable" here meaning leopard print.
  • Raikov gets stripped down to his thong (a leather thong with a lightning-bolt on it) in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater when Snake uses his uniform for a disguise.
  • The first boss of The Simpsons Arcade game is a pro wrestler who's pants will drop if he is left alone, revealing pink sparkly briefs.
  • In Leisure Suit Larry 7: Love for Sail!, Larry wears leopard-print briefs.
  • Disgaea 5: We don't actually see them, but Red Magnus has a pair of tiger-print briefs that are his favorite (and only good) pair of underwear. Seraphina is not amused when he puts them in with her laundry.
  • The Final Boss of Smash TV combines Mutoid Man (the first boss) with the M.C. of the game show. Rather than exposing his ribcage (as with Mutoid Man previously), shooting his chest reveals a pink polka dot undershirt.
  • As mentioned before, in a WarioWare game, you must defend yourself from a ninja. Well, on the easy difficulty, the ninja costume falls off to reveal boxers. On the medium difficulty, the boxers fall off to reveal briefs. And on the third difficulty... the ninja is wearing a pink thong. Really.
  • The Hero in Fable I wears briefs with the Union Jack on them if he's undressed. Fitting, since the setting of the game (Albion) is a Fantasy Counterpart Culture to Middle-Age Britain.
  • In Spider-Man (PS4), Peter wears grey briefs with Spidey logos on it. It's seen twice throughout the game: the first time was in the opening as he rushes to get dressed, and the second is after he frees himself from a Mushroom Samba sequence caused by Scorpion. Hilariously, the latter instance showed him wearing nothing but his underwear and mask with no explanation how it happened. Even better, it's an unlockable suit after you beat the game with 100% Completion.
  • Among the various underwear in The Sims 2 are a pair of leopard skin speedo-style underwear.

Childish women's underwear

  • In Super Robot Wars: Original Generation, when Seolla axe-kicked Arado for making yet another boob-joke on her, she ends up revealing to Russel, of all people... her teddie bear panties.
  • They're never shown, but it's confirmed by Juliet herself in Lollipop Chainsaw that she's wearing her 'lucky zombie-fighting underwear', which is panties with teddy bears or hearts on them.
  • In Resident Evil 6, an alternate costume of Ada Wong shows that she wears pink panties with flowers on them.
  • In Dead or Alive, there are loads of them. Since 2 onward, all of the teenage girls have bright, colorful, and often-silly panties you'd expect a teenage girl to own. Flowers, butterflies, hearts, stripes, and polka dots. There's even some with strawberry designs on them.
  • Although most underwear for women in The Sims averts this, The Sims 3 allows players to create some of their own in-game.
  • In League of Legends, Lux formerly had these on some of her alternate skins before the developers slightly altered her models. Her Star Guardian skin had a big star on the butt of her purple undies, which made some sense, given that it follows a teenage magical girl theme. More strangely, the Mystic form of her Elementalist skin also followed this, despite being akin to a She Is All Grown Up skin. On the back of those panties, there was a big butterfly.
    • The trend made a return with the Prestige version of her "Porcelain" skin, which features a pair of white panties with a bunny face on the front.
  • In Until Dawn, Jess wears flower-print panties, showing her playful and girly side.
