Basic trope: In mind, out-of-body experiences you’re naked.

  • Straight: During an out-of-body experience, Alice is shown naked.

  • Downplayed: Alice is shown naked during the experiences, albeit retaining her accessories and/or jewelry for some reason.
  • Justified: Your clothes aren’t a part of you, so your soul doesn’t show them when taking form.

  • Inverted: Alice takes off her clothes to perform the mind travel, but her representation in the mind travel itself is clothed.
  • Subverted: Alice starts naked her out-of-body experience, but she can create clothes at will in that plane.
  • Double Subverted: …however, they need too much focus to keep them, and she is forced to go as started.
  • Parodied: Alice is naked during her mind travel to explore her memories, but turns out that the people’s representations on her memory can see her, causing some embarrassment.
  • Zig-Zagged: ???
  • Averted: During her experience, Alice is shown clothed just like her physical self.
  • Enforced: The author wants to show the vulnerability of the bare soul, and because that Alice’s mind is a nude form of her.

  • Invoked: Alice’s master Charles takes her to a mind travel to show how vulnerable we are without our external constructs.
  • Exploited: Bob, who guides Alice in her mind travel, is capitalizing on the matter to ogle her.
  • Defied: Alice uses a spell to create the image of clothes for herself (turning Bob disappointed).
  • Discussed: “I wonder if we will get nude in the mind travel… I should have hit the gym a bit more.”
  • Conversed: “You think the production team will put some Fanservice in the Out Of Clothes Experience?” “Nah, perhaps in the DVD.”

  • Played For Drama: The naked aspect of the travel reminds Alice of her own vulnerability in her past life as a sexual abuse victim.
