Short shorts are not a trope on their own. Here's a list of tropes that may apply instead:
- Fanservice, for audience-pleasing material that is largely sexual.
- Meaningful Appearance, for the appearance of people used as a way to convey information about them.
- Modesty Shorts, for when characters wear shorts under a skirt to prevent Panty Shots.
- She's Got Legs, for when someone's legs are given special attention from the in-universe characters/camera.
