A female character who provides a significant amount of Fanservice (generally for males), ranging from simple revealing of cleavage, midriff, shoulders or legs, to shots of her curves, hips or derriere (even when covered).
Her clothing is mainly there to accentuate her figure. Her wardrobe mainstays are bikinis/swimsuits, lingerie, fishnets, stockings, garters, Dangerously Short Skirts, equally short shorts, thigh high boots or stiletto pumps, and low-cut dresses and shirts. Alternatively, she might be covered from head to toe, thus showing no skin at all, but her costume will be tight and stretchy enough to show her bust and the outline of her hips. Bonus points if she's The Tease. In general, she will appear more often in merchandise aimed towards males to further attract males to the product, with vice versa being the case for Mr. Fanservice.
There are several types of Ms. Fanservice:
- A Fanservice Extra provides eye candy, but never appeared before the moment of such eye candy and never appears again. Compare Best Known for the Fanservice.
- An Innocent Fanservice Girl has no qualms about strutting her stuff in front of others; she doesn't see a problem in it and is often unaware that she may be causing trouble. This can range from flat-out nudity to posing in skimpy outfits when asked.
- A Reluctant Fanservice Girl prefers to dress modestly, but the universe conspires to subject her into providing fanservice anyway, which she takes issue with.
- A Shameless Fanservice Girl doesn't care if you're uncomfortable with her lack of clothes or penchant for skimpy outfits. She'll bare her figure anyway.
Either way, the camera seems to have the hots for her, and the viewing audience is expected to feel the same way. The real trick is to make it so that being eye candy doesn't make her a Flat Character. Besides, being "flat" usually doesn't fit this type of character.
Please note that there is no requirement to be single to fit into this trope. Many of these characters are married. For the Spear Counterpart, see Mr. Fanservice. If she also sleeps with most of the crew, she either Really Gets Around or is a Good Bad Girl. Subjected to multiple Double Standard tropes, especially if she gets a nice dose of Character Development or Hidden Depths aside from her hot looks, and yet the fandom refuses to see them.

- Blake Belladonna, a girl who invokes many fans' cat girl fantasies. An attractive girl with an outfit that exposes her midriff, she often fights her battles and sustains numerous Clothing Damage.
- Invoking the trope Evil Is Sexy is The Dragon, Cinder Fall. She is a beautiful, curvaceous woman who waltzes around in a slinky red dress that shows off her legs and her shoulders, not to mention the attention bestowed upon her by the camera in this scene◊. It doesn't exactly hurt that she has a very sultry voice courtesy of real life Ms Fanservice Jessica Nigri.
- Post-Time Skip in Volume 4, Weiss falls into this. The camera makes sure to take a lot of lingering shots of her nice, long legs.
- Jinn is very curvaceous, with a classic hour-glass figure, and the chains draped around her waist are balanced against the curve of her hips.

When she first manifests, Qrow doesn't know where to put his eyes and tries to avoid staring at her.

- Lt. Lisa Foiles from The Angry Joe Show. She went on a rant and her uniform started falling apart. Not to say she's conceited or anything, but Lisa seems to be fully aware of the fact that she's... visually pleasing and isn't afraid to flaunt it. Just get a look at Episode 3 of her "Everyday Achievements" series or her video with Angry Joe from E3 where the caption underneath reads "Hot Chick". She displayed awareness of this fact in her top 5 best moments of Monkey Island, pointing out she wears tight clothing while wearing tight clothing. The comments section on the Escapist were really... happy about it.

- While Codex and Tinkerballa of The Guild dress quite normally, their avatars... are another story.
- Tess Masazza of the Italian Webseries Insopportabilmente Donna is more than willing to show some skin in her videos. However, it is never gratuitous and full nude scenes are always avoided by a Modesty Bedsheet or pixelated.
- Sarah from lonelygirl15 is a relatively mild example, but it's blatant enough that fans have been known to nickname her after her breasts, or even jokingly treat them as a separate character.
- Miss Hannah Minx, who has enormous boobs that are on display in nearly all of her videos, except one where she lampshades her role as a Ms. Fanservice by wearing a T-shirt that said "My Face Is Up Here" with an arrow pointing to her face. Bonus points for having her breasts jiggle and bounce with every little movement. Don't believe me?◊
- While this isn't what she's like normally, The Nostalgia Chick had this role in That Jewish Guy's "Eight Myths About Hanukkah" video, where she looked incredibly dolled up. Now that's a Big-Lipped Alligator Moment nobody's complaining about. And let's not forget her outfit in Linking with Linkara.
- The React series has had many beautiful reactors through the years (even inspiring their own sub-Reddit, which for obvious reasons has a tough stance on comments), but the ones who occasionally turn up in revealing clothes (e.g shirts that are sleeveless, with plunging necklines, or/and just plainly tight) and are generally appealing/popular to the male (and even female) fanbase are/were Alix, Becca, Blair Fowler, Brittany, Jaykanote , the second female Jordan, Kaelyn, Lia, the older and original Madison, Marlhy, Mikaela, the third and oldest Morgan, Rachel, Riley, Sabrina D., Sophia, the older and original Sydney, Tori, and Justine Ezarik. A lot of the comments actually point those out.

- Taylor Amelia, a talented web comedienne whose videos nonetheless focus on her other incredible "talents".
- Samus, from There Will Be Brawl.
