Stripperiffic / Video Games

Go To

  • AdventureQuest Worlds is the first Artix Entertainment game where leotards and revealing robes are compulsory for all women of all classes, no matter what. Even most of the over clothes are burlesque in some way.
    • One player was so disgruntled by this situation that she wrote a fanfic making fun of the company.
    • This trope was downplayed recently as armours tend to cover the player's neck to toes for both gendersnote , while some skin-revealing armours apply to men as well.
  • Operator Gina, the tutorial instructor in the MMORPG Ace Online is particularly Stripperiffic. Midriff-bearing dress shirt, double-slit miniskirt, garter belts and fishnet stockings.
  • Kira Daidohji of Arcana Heart fights in a literal swimsuit while riding around in her giant blob. Gets a Lampshade Hanging by Saki.
    Saki: How can you walk around like that? Don't you have any sense of decency?

    • Arcana Heart 2's Catherine Kyohbayashi is no better. She also wears a one-piece swimsuit similar to Kira's... and rides a Humongous Mecha. She certainly can't use the 'fight in the water' excuse...
    • Arcana Heart 3 adds the Ax-Crazy Scharlachrot who wears basically a bra and short shorts under her cape.
    • Lilica Felchenerow is shown wearing a sleeveless jacket with zipper down. And one of her win poses has her whipping her jacket off revealing her sports bra.
  • The iPhone game Arodius has this played straight AND averted. And literally.
    • You play the game as a stripperiffic angel who wields a sword but shoots lasers that goes on some quest to defeat her enemies... the bosses are all in full armor, and depending on the difficulty, they become more and more naked the more you shoot them.
    • In other words, the game has the greatest enemy health bar in the word. Until Level 3.
  • The female heroines of the Atelier series tend to go all over the place with this. On the one hand, the heroine of the very first game, Marie, wears an outfit with a chest that would be questionable in the supposedly faux-German setting her game takes place in; several other characters in other games also have fairly revealing outfits. The majority of female leads in the games, however, tend to have pretty modest outfits. The best examples are Elie and Viese from Atelier Elie and Atelier Iris 2 respectively.

  • Athena strips its heroine down to a skimpy red bikini in the intro to the Arcade Game where she falls Down the Rabbit Hole. She can acquire armor that covers more of her body, but her sprite is so small it's hard to tell. This is not the more modestly dressed Athena appears in Psycho Soldier and the King of Fighters series, but the Princess Athena who appears again, bikini-clad, in SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos.
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum features Harley Quinn in a new uniform. Although her old clothes were tight, they covered most of her skin. Her new uniform looks like the standard Naughty Nurse Outfit, combined with bondage gear. Poison Ivy also gets a new costume, which again is more revealing than her normal comics getup. This is lampshaded in Arkham City, where you can overhear two prisoners talking about her outfit.
    Inmate 1: Have you seen Harley's new outfit? I don't get why she wears that skimpy little thing.
    Inmate 2: She must be crazy wearing that out here! Doesn't she know that these guys haven't seen women in a looonng time? She'd better be careful.

  • Bayonetta features a gun-toting witch wearing a skintight bodysuit made of her hair. That she strips off her body as she uses her magic. And turns it into a hair dragon while standing around in the nude.
  • BlazBlue's Litchi Faye-Ling wears a Chinese outfit that reveals quite a lot of her humongous melons... which bounces a lot. Her outfit also reveal a lot of her legs and her shoulders. Her back is modestly covered though (then again, what do we have Noel for).
    • Considering an offhand comment Litchi made in Noel's Joke Ending in Story Mode, Litchi's outfit looks that way on her probably because it's several sizes too small for her, so she really has to leave the front open (since her Most Common Superpower is in the way), and she probably cut those holes on the sleeves on purpose so that her arms don't get restricted in movement (also, assuming that's exactly the same outfit Noel is wearing in that same ending scene, it fits Noel perfectly).
    • Noel and Jin are both relatively high-ranking members of the NOL and are sent to the front lines. Yet neither possess any armour and look more like they should be doing deskwork. In Jin's case, he does have those tights, but they are apparently so he doesn't catch a chill from Yukianesa. So if he wasn't using Yukianesa, and unless they design a new uniform for him, Jin would probably be running around with about the same amount of clothes on as Makoto.
    • Here comes a new challenger! Making an appearance as an adorable squirrel girl, Makoto joins the fray wielding Dual Tonfas and hardly any clothes on.
    • Also Mu-12, who wears a tie and a crotch plate thing and not much else. which is funny when you consider that Mu is Noel.
      • This is a trait of all Murakumo Units (Nu-13, Lambda-11 and then aforementioned Mu-12), while Mu shows the most skin... Nu and Lambda are not much better in sensual spandex and said crotch plate.
  • Rayne's vampire sister, Ferril, in Bloodrayne 2 is strategically covered only in what appears to be living tattoos. That's not even getting into what Ephemera or Rayne herself wear.
  • Isaac, the rival to the hero Hector in Castlevania: Curse of Darkness is a male example. First off he's a Walking Shirtless Scene, with only gauntlets, a few bits of metal and intricate tattoos above the waist. Tack on alarmingly low-slung leather pants and thigh-high, high-heeled boots, and the overall effect is something like "gothic bondage stripper".
  • Sheena Etranzi wears an incredibly impractical Battle Bikini and a trio of belts around her midriff in Contra: Hard Corps. Despite this, Konami and WayForward Technologies removed the belts and added a generous amount of cleavage in Contra 4. The other female character in Contra 4, Lucia, is a bit more modest, wearing a blue one-piece swimsuit with chaps. Then again, most of the male characters are shirtless.
  • City of Heroes. While it's completely in the hands of the players, many of the costume choices in this game are fairly stripperiffic, especially for females. Some notable costume choices:
    • Three leather straps that go across your bare chest... available only for guys, however.
    • The "eden" choice is two spike-like shapes that are painted over your chest and only (just barely) cover the character's nipples.
    • The female version of the tank top is skimpier than the male version, and goes so far as to add extra cleavage shading!
    • Also, if you pick an odd skin color, you can create a matching outfit and appear completely naked at first glance.
    • The "Witch" costume set keeps your heroine decent by sorcery and sorcery alone.
  • Darkstalkers is probably the most over-the-top example there is. Felicia is a Catgirl who is practically naked aside from small patches of fur just barely covering her up. Morrigan's "outfit" is really a bunch of bats that fly around her constantly and turn into her clothes (the same applies to Lilith, her sister). There's a bit of Getting Crap Past the Radar in Pocket Fighter when she says that the bats carry her things when she goes shopping. Take that however you'd like.
  • Subverted by Nicole in Dead or Alive 4, quite possibly the last place you would expect such a subversion to occur. As a female version of Master Chief in a game that otherwise uses this trope with pride, it is nearly impossible to tell her gender just from looking at her. In a funny twist, her gender is the Tomato Surprise at the end of the Haloid fan video. The person who's surprised by said Tomato? Samus Aran.
  • Devil May Cry 4: Gloria. The way she fights only serves to emphasize how little skin her outfit covers.
  • Diablo III, likely being aware of this trope when it was made, takes an interesting approach. The female characters start out with this trope played straight, but as you upgrade in armor they slowly become more covered until they are quite covered (although highly curved in the, er, breastplate). Their page on the Wizard demonstrates this progression.
  • About 70% of the cast of Disgaea. For both genders. Particularly notable is Etna, who wears a midriff bearing leather top and a very short skirt. Made somewhat disturbing by the fact that she has the body of an underdeveloped thirteen year old girl. Her outfit in Disgaea 2 is somehow more revealing. Lampshaded in the Prinny commentary, where the commentator Prinny has a few words to say about Laharl and Etna's (lack of) clothing choices.
    • Going by the promotional art, Disgaea D2, a direct sequel to the first, ups the ante: Etna is basically wearing a bikini.
  • The elves of both genders in Divinity: Original Sin II wear very little clothing in general (with exceptions for specific items), essentially having the women wear a Chainmail Bikini and turning the men into Walking Shirtless Scenes. No other race is nearly as stripperiffic in their clothing choices, and elves are closer to nature, so it may be justified on that front.
  • Dragon Age: Origins has the witch Morrigan, a dark-haired beauty with gold eyes. Morrigan's "top" is essentially two strips of purple cloth covering her breasts, seemingly held together with a few strings, along with a single sleeve. When questioned on her outfit, Morrigan notes she spent her life in a forest; the implication is that Morrigan cobbled together her outfit from scraps.
    • The majority of the armor in the game averts this: robes and light armors are flattering, but reasonably practical, and anything heavier (particularly full plate armor) avoids it entirely. The exception is the Dalish armor.
  • Dragon Quest
    • Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies has the Warrior profession. There's a bit of a difference in the Male and Female standard getup. Of course, it's fully customizable, but still. And almost every other game from the third game onward has at least one example.
    • Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King has some Lampshade Hanging in a few scenes involving Jessica and her apparent "Va-va-voom" in addition to several monsters using "puff-puff" (accompanied by honking noises).
  • Princess Daphne from Dragon's Lair with her little sheer black dress.
  • Yuki is pretty stripperiffic in Enchanted Arms, although the first rule in a desert is to cover all your skin. Sunburns require more water than sweat waste.
  • Kate Alen from F-Zero GX. Wears essentially a skimpy bikini, but the males could also be considered to be in stripperiffic outfits since some of the males go around in speedos and muscle shirts, and Captain Falcon himself wears a skin tight suit with nipple buttons.
  • F.A.K.K.2, adapted from a sci-fi Heavy Metal Magazine and staring a 3D modeled Julie Strain, begins with a skin-tight jumpsuit, which suffers Clothing Damage, then is replaced with leather bikini and then a few strategically placed straps. Later clothing, while revealing progressively more, somehow provide more protection.
  • The female versions of Raider armor in Fallout 3 are generally quite revealing, some more than others. Then again, they are on the men as well, making it an equal-opportunity trope in this case. The Ordnance/Bombshell Armor from the DLC The Pitt, which consists of short shorts and a Mini-Nuke casing bra, is the most flagrant example. The Leather Rebel armor also has a rather high damage resistance for the amount of exposed skin. Then there's the midriff-baring female Merc Adventurer outfit, which subverts this with a much lower DR. A notable aversion is the decidedly modest Reinforced Leather Armor from Fallout: New Vegas. In fact, many of the higher-level armors have unisex models (identical on male and female characters).
  • Mai Shiranui of Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters. Perhaps the quintessential example of the impractically dressed warrior. Her Garou counterpart B. Jenet wears a cocktail dress into battle and flirts with the guys quite a bit. Angel from 2001 quite possibly tops her in this regard, and in Mai's victory quote against her Mai says something about her "trying too hard". Lampshaded in Fatal Fury 3: when Terry Bogard defeats her, he tells her, "First, don't call me Goldilocks! And second, cover up that cleavage!".
  • Meltlilith from Fate Extra CCC wears an outfit that can even give Ivy Valentine a run for her money with her "crotch plate armor".
    • Passionlip from same game have most parts of her body (arms, lower torso and feet) covered but wears nothing but two belts to cover her breasts, further cemented as her official bust size is 164, and hip size at 104. Basically Meltlilith is this trope in lower body while Passionlip in upper torso..
  • In Fighting Vipers, all the human characters wear armor but it can be broken in the game. When Candy's armor is destroyed she wears only a frilly skirt, boots, gloves and a leather bra. Even with her (skimpy) armor, Grace still is Stripperiffic but once it's broken she wears a one piece bathing suit that reveals her cleavage.
  • Almost every Final Fantasy game has an example. Some stand out more than others (particularly X-2), but every game will feature at least one person like this. Final Fantasy, however, is notable for its equal opportunity — even the men are prone to this trope (Kuja can even put most of the girls to shame). There's too many to list in just one page.
    • Both used and averted for the Viera, a race of bunny women. In Final Fantasy XII, they wear pretty revealing clothes, especially Fran. In Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and Final Fantasy Tactics A2, only the Elementalist class is revealing while the rest are modest in clothing. The Seeq, a race of pigs, are the most stripperiffic.
    • Summoner/Black Magician Girl Rydia, from Final Fantasy IV, was already skirting the line with her post-adolescence Leotard of Power. Her outfit for the sequel, The After Years, doesn't resemble clothes so much as strategically-applied, gravity-defying green paint. Porom winds up with a Stripperiffic costume of her own, too; both of them actually had their clothing censored for the North American release of the game. Surprisingly, there's also a male example in Golbez of all people.
    • Lampshaded by some of the female guards of Troia on the Nintendo DS version, a nation ruled by women. One of them even gets annoyed at being mistaken for a dancer.
    • In Final Fantasy XI, certain types of armor had a somewhat odd tendency to spontaneously gain Zettai Ryouiki when equipped on female characters, the Mithra getting hit the most by it. However, there are also plenty of armor that looks exactly the same when equipped on both genders, ranging from practical armor and robes, to harnesses and subligar, which is stripperiffic even on the male characters.
    • Mobius Final Fantasy ran into the slightly peculiar situation of having to cover up a male character because playtesters found his outfit 'too sexy'. Originally a sort of skintight leather cloth glued over his chest that showed his sides, thong-lines, enormous tribal back-piece and butt, Wol ended up dressed in a (still very revealing) carapace with a little shoulder-cape.
    • Final Fantasy XIV plays this for laughs with Godbert Manderville, the Ultimate Goldsmith father of Hildebrand Manderville. Nine times out of ten, the man is walking around in his smallclothes (re: his underwear and a pair of sandals) and if he's wearing clothes anywhere else, the man'll have it shed sooner or later, usually before he opens up a massive can of whupass.
  • Fire Emblem borders on this with some of the female characters, most consistently with the miniskirts usually worn by pegasus knights, but it tends to be justified by those characters being of light unit classes; pegasus knights need light armor so as not to slow them down in flight, archers shouldn't be exposed to direct combat anyway, mages and healers aren't normally expected to fight up close, etc. Female units in heavier unit classes tend to wear about as much armor as their male counterparts. Additionally, even most of the more lightly dressed ladies avert more blatantly fanservicey tropes like Chainmail Bikini and Bare Your Midriff. A few of the magic-using villainesses deliberately play up the fanservice for its worth, though.
    • Most of the female myrmidons in the series seem to have a fondness for Showing Some Leg. That said, their dress is otherwise fairly conservative, and male myrmidons generally don't wear armor either.
    • Males aren't immune to this, either; axe-wielding classes like Fighters and Berserkers wear little armor and like at least bare their arms, with characters like Largo and Vaike being all-out Walking Shirtless Scenes.
    • In Radiant Dawn, Sothe becomes one of the few characters in the franchise to play Bare Your Midriff straight.
    • Fire Emblem Awakening and Fire Emblem Fates have moved the franchise to more fanservicey designs, but male and female units of the same class still usually wear the same amount of actual armor, if not clothing in general. That said, Stripperiffic doesn't even begin to describe how Dark Mages and Sorcerers of both genders dress, and in Fates, even regular mages (again, of both genders) show plenty of skin.
      • Charlotte from Fates is probably the most Stripperiffic close quarters combatant in the franchise, wearing little more than a bikini into battle. That said, most of the other Fighters in the 3DS games don't wear much either, and Charlotte herself is a mercenary deliberately playing up her sex appeal to manipulate men (preferably those with money).
  • Adverts for Flyff seem to make out that the women have really skimpy armor. This apparently isn't the case in-game.
  • The demoness Shannon in God Hand wears a very tight and close-cut one-piece outfit. As if in acknowledgment of this trope, just before the first fight with her, she actually mounts a stripper's pole for a moment.
  • Feena from Grandia is said to be one of the most skilled and intelligent adventurers in the world. Her outfit of choice? A bikini top (with inexplicable sleeves) and a very small miniskirt that by all rights shouldn't cover anything. The physics of it are inexplicable.
  • Armor sets in Guild Wars also have the tendency to be slightly more revealing for women than men, but it's not glaring except for the Elementalists... the men wear full suits and long coats, while the women basically look like belly dancers. This may have been subverted with Paragons, who wear short skirts... men and women alike.
    • Female mesmers favor Gorgeous Period Dress, but there are a couple that come across more as evening dresses, so to speak. Female warriors generally avert the trope except for the Gladiator and Elite Gladiator sets (and in their defense, the male versions are just as fanservice-y), monks and necromancers both have armor sets that consist of tattoos and scar patterns, respectively, with only the most vital bits preserved for modesty, male and female alike. Female rangers get avert this trope... except for the Elite Druid armor, which consists of little more than a leather bikini.
    • The Kurzick and Elite Kurzick armor for female Ritualists is apparently held on with spirit gum (admittedly, the male armor is fairly revealing as well). Some nonscar Necromancer armors are serious offenders, too - lace/gauze-is-not-a-substitute-for-clothing Elite Cabal and Obsidian, let's-protect-everything-except-the-vulnerable spots Elite Kurzick, and a-leather-strap-does-not-a-bra-make Sunspear - while the male Necros almost always get full-body leather suits.
  • Queen Catherine Ironfist from Heroes of Might and Magic III wears leg-and-cleavage-baring plate-and-mail armor. Further, Mutare's sleeveless leather shirt and Adrienne's benippled tunic strain…suspension of disbelief when male characters are in full armor or robes. Also Dark Elf priestesses and Orc shamans in Heroes of Might and Magic V.
  • Justified in Jade Empire, in which armor is completely useless and revealing clothing is stated to be a sign of confidence. Which still raises the question of why the emperor of fantasy-counterpart-Imperial China lets his unmarried daughter and sole heir walk around the capital dressed in that outfit. In fact, when she appears to him in her much-more modest (in comparison) Silk Fox garb, he chastises her for wearing a crass outfit.
  • While the standard ladies' fashion choice in the Jak and Daxter series is to Bare Your Midriff, only Ashelin's outfit really counts as she only wears enough cloth to cover a quarter of a person. Jak X Combat Racing made it a little less skimpy.
  • In Jay's Journey, no one can shut up about Gaia's outfit, which is essentially a bikini. Gaia actually flaunts her body to try to get her way, but no one responds the way she expects. In one scene, she comments that she's been looking for attention. Jay remarks that the outfit should be enough; Gaia responds "Well, it wouldn't be in any game besides this one."
  • Male example employed as Fan Disservice: La-Mulana 's Lemeza in the Skimpy Swimsuit, which you see at the end of the Bonus Level of Hell.
  • Lampshade Hanging in La Pucelle Tactics: The heroine and her friend both get into an argument over the immodesty of each other's uniforms until they realize that their boss was the one who picked them out.
  • This is true for nearly every female character in the online strategy RPG League of Angels, including female monsters, female party members you hire, your PC (if you choose a female) and of course, the angels that follow you around. Even a female that is more-or-less covered tends to be sultry and seductive. (Ironically, your PC's clothing is less revealing than most, but still usually has cleavage and leg.)
  • Played gratuitously in Lost Odyssey, where the regal noble empress Ming is wearing a bikini bottom and what appears to be some sort of elegant tool belt on the bottom, and what can best be described as "sorta vest-ish, but with more breast exposure" on the top. Oddly, the female pirate is wearing a sensible leather dress with a bit of plate mail here and there.
  • One must wonder how Vanessa from Luminous Arc manages to avoid untimely "wardrobe malfunctions" in battle.
    • In Luminous Arc 2, Fatima the Shadow Frost Witch wears an outfit that shows more than a bit of cleavage.
    • Ayano's "battle" outfit. There's a reason why she's a Glass Cannon with lower DEF (she can tank well against magic, though).
  • Samara from Mass Effect 2 wears a skintight catsuit with an extremely low neckline. Subject Zero/Jack doesn't even wear clothes from the waist up, just a belt.thing that just barely covers her nipples.
    • Miranda is another major exception. Her standard outfit is so tight that it's lampshaded during her loyalty mission. A gaming site even wrote an article called "The Truth Behind Miranda's Behind" at one point.
    • BioWare did pick up and the somewhat negative reaction from the fans on these outfits, and have released a couple of optional Appearance Pack DLCs that address it. The first pack gives Jack a proper jacket and vest, which appear to be armored, while the second pack gives Miranda a suit of light plate armor similar to the light armor suits in the first game, complete with replacing her Combat Stilettos with boots.
    • Mass Effect 3 implies this is an Enforced Trope. We see more Cerberus forces, and both the Nemesis and Phantom are female and wear tight light armor that draws attention to their breasts. This would indicate Cerberus itself enforces this trope, possibly the Illusive Man himself. Early in the game, an early clue to Dr. Eva Core's identity is that she's wearing a skintight suit like Miranda's, for no good reason.
  • Justified with Quiet from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Quiet wears not much more besides a bikini and pantyhose. It's necessary for her because the parasite treatment used to save her life changed her to breathe through her skin instead.
  • Samus Aran from Metroid avoided this trope entirely, to the point where her being a female was the Tomato Surprise of the first game. However, pictures of her wearing more revealing clothes are sometimes unlockables. For the first few games, Samus outside of her Powered Armor would be seen wearing a bikini of a variation of it. After the franchise went 3D, Samus is always shown in her Zero Suit, which covers everything, but is skin tight and pronounces her figure more.
  • Played straight and inverted in Mortal Kombat, where quite a few of the male and female fighters wear skimpy outfits while beating the crap out of each other (The dress code for Edenian royalty must have been based on Slave Leia). Shao Kahn himself is a male example. The only real exception to this is Ashrah, whose outfits are about the most modest and covering garments ever seen on an MK female.
    • In addition, some of the Mortal Kombat games have unlockable alternate costumes for the fighters (especially Deadly Alliance, where they all have them. The ones for female characters tend to be skimpy.
    • Averted in Mortal Kombat X by Cassie Cage, the daughter of Johnny and Sonya, and the first female Kombatant since Ashrah to dress sensibly, wearing a modern tactical outfit along with Daddy's trademark sunglasses.
    • A male example: Shao Kahn goes through each and every game wearing two belts, a hoop, and a loincloth. Also noteworthy, because it's played straight in terms of fanservice.
  • Fighting game Schwarzerblitz averts this with most of the cast... except for Cyphr's second costume and Amy's first costume. All other available costumes in the game are pretty tame, in comparison.
  • Neverwinter Nights had a particular issue with this, sensible robes and armour suddenly morphed into low cut dress and body hugging tops when picked up by a female player, you could even strip a character down to their underwear.
    • Almost completely averted in Neverwinter Nights 2. All armor is very sensible, and characters wear normal civilian clothes under their armor. The lone exception is the armor female warlock protagonists start with, and it's a unique piece of armor found nowhere else in the game.
    • In the Storm of Zehir expansion, the default garb of the ranger Inshula sar Mashawe qualifies. Lampshaded and justified: when the player characters remark on it, she notes that the Chult peninsula is a hot, humid tropical region.
  • Faux Action Girl Rachel in the Xbox version of Ninja Gaiden wears an outfit most strippers would probably consider tacky.
  • Velvet from Odin Sphere is basically always bearing her midriff. The other two female characters, while more modestly dressed, are basically wearing short shorts and a ballet tutu with leg armor. There's a bit of Lampshade Hanging in the Winterhorn Ridge stage (which is exactly the kind of place it sounds like) when a shopkeeper NPC remarks "A half-naked maiden on this mountain? I hope I'm not hallucinating..." Another Winterhorn Ridge shopkeeper asks, "You came all the way up here dressed like that?".
  • Ohatsu in Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams begins the game conservatively dressed. After her outfit is supposedly destroyed in a battle, however, she changes into a more revealing, stripperiffic outfit that she pieced together out of the remains of the old one.
  • General rule of thumb for the Overlord series: If they're even remotely attractive by normal standards, they'll be wearing a relatively sensible outfit that's, at worst, a bit tight or low-cut. If they have wrinkles, liver spots, and/or more blubber than an arctic beach during walrus mating season, they'll be wearing a dental floss bikini.
  • Phantasy Star Online 2 flies all over the scale with this, for both genders. Everything from real, proper armor to Barely-There Swimwear and any kind of Fanservice Costumes you can think of. Handwaved in-universe by virtue of skin exposure increasing Photon intake.
    • Then un-handwaved by its spinoff, Phantasy Star Online 2es, where the heroine Gene has her original outfit, which is fairly modest, cut up into being this. This is because she burns through her Photons at an alarmingly high rate (to the point that she can faint if under severe battle stress) due to being a Weaponoid of half a Genesis Weapon, so her outfit was made more revealing to regulate her Photon absorption.
  • Carona from Phantom Brave: We Meet Again, appears to be wearing nothing but a bikini beneath her Badass Cape.
  • Planescape: Torment's snarky Cute Monster Girl Annah has a set of identically different bodices and hip-high boots that cover little.
    • It can get lampshaded and justified to an extent. If the PC is a thief, then he and Annah (who is also a thief) can exchange experience, tricks and general ideas on how to improve their skills. In particular, the PC can suggest that Annah makes her outfit even more Stripperiffic by cutting some extra holes so to pass for a harlot and distract potential victims. He confesses that he always thought this was the purpose of the bodices anyway, and she claims that she just gets hot, which she supposes is due to her infernal heritage.
    • In fact, most of the outfits worn by most of the females, including the NPCs, qualify. The one outfit that actually subverts this is the one worn by Fall-From-Grace, who is a succubus. Then again, she's a chaste succubus.
  • An end-of-the-game unlockable from P.N.03 features the female protagonist in an incredibly revealing suit, complete with a thong. Keep in mind this is a shooter game. It also makes her a One-Hit-Point Wonder, adding a new difficulty to this already Nintendo Hard game.
  • Pop N Music has Miku, a showgirl who may or may not be a stripper given her skimpy attire, which consists of a black bra and miniskirt.
  • All the female jobs in Ragnarok Online range from modest to blatantly stripperiffic. In most jobs, higher classes means less clothing. Justified with the Dancer/Gypsy class, but the others, not as much.
  • The character artwork featured on the front-page for Rappelz is so blatantly revealing and impractical that one wonders if it were deliberately mocking the trade. Not just the character art — the in-game outfits for females often look like little more than bathing suits and thigh-high stockings. It makes for an interesting contrast with the ten foot long double-handed ax or the taller-than-the-character glowy sword, as well as with the often-Humongous Mecha-inspired male armor. Female warriors tend to be more of the painted-on-spandex which still technically "protects", at least if you're being attacked by friendly kittens. A female mage or summoner, on the other hand, had better have a large supply of double-stick tape and a good way of keeping warm in the ice dungeon while wearing three inch-wide strips of fur and a pair of go-go boots.
  • Jill Valentine apparently spends the time between Resident Evil 1 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis changing from a combat uniform to a miniskirt and tube top. It is excused away in official media that Raccoon City was suffering a heatwave.
    • And she was fired from the police, had to give uniform back?
    • In Resident Evil 5, Jill appears late in the game wearing a purple catsuit with built-in short heels. Her model in the Mercenaries minigame runs around with the catsuit unzipped to show off some cleavage, but you can also opt to play as Jill in her perfectly sensible BSAA outfit. And then there's Sheva's "tribal" costume...
  • Tati from Rise of the Kasai.
  • The extremely revealing outfit Tiffany wears in Rival Schools is explained as being her cheerleading outfit.
  • Both averted and played straight in Rumble Roses, an all-girl wrestling game. Most of the wrestlers wear outfits that are too small or very inconvenient in a fight, such as a scarf or an extremely tight skirt. Even "Face" (Good) characters. This is partly Truth in Television however, as a lot of female wrestlers dress and act sexy on purpose even if their costume gets in the way. Averted however in the Judo Babe, who is a shy "good girl" and whose regular outfit is a judo gi. Even her swimsuit is a one-piece, showing less skin than the regular costumes of many characters and NOT showing cleavage. (Of course once she turns "Heel" (Evil) she dresses more revealing... and in the sequel, official/unofficial artwork, miniature DOLL and fan pictures; she is not nearly as modest.)
  • Jessica Cannon in Si N: Episodes wears an outfit with a bare midriff, and her pants appear designed specifically to draw the player's attention to her backside.
  • Eileen's regular outfit in Silent Hill 4: The Room (during gameplay, at least — the one she wears before she joins you is pretty casual and unrevealing).
  • Linda Maltinie from the first Snowboard Kids game dresses in leopard-pattern skintight pants and a red bikini top. As the game title suggests, she is garbed as much on frigid mountain tops. She's only ten. The Japan-only PlayStation sequel Snowboard Kids Plus introduces a few more characters who fit this trope, including a male example in the flamboyant and muscular Ruby Green, who has a bonus outfit consisting of a green speedo and snow boots. (This is actually lampshaded in his bio, which makes light of his annoyance at being mistaken for a chaperone whenever he's around the rest of the cast.)
  • While the Sonic the Hedgehog series usually falls under the category of Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal and thus this trope is easily handwaved, an early issue of the Archie comic made a joke about Princess Sally wearing a "revealing two-piece outfit". At the time, she only wore a pair of boots. Rouge the Bat, meanwhile, wears a black skin-tight spandex suit and a pink Chainmail Bikini that exposes varying amounts of cleavage, depending on the game. Her alternate outfits tend to be even more stripperiffic.
  • Soul Calibur applies this to just about any character who isn't in full plate. While Ivy and Taki are the poster girls for the trope, players tend to forget that most of the men are equally underdressed. Hilde of Soul Calibur IV was explicitly designed to avert the trope — but the creators can hardly expect a cookie for it when the other characters are more scantily clad than ever.
  • Lampshaded in Star Control II. The officer's uniform of Syreen is very revealing, and the protagonist takes a note of it. Needless to say, for all-female race that uses its sex appeal for all sentient races as a spaceship weapon, this can be considered a Justified Trope.
  • StarCraft features relatively few female units. We only see the face of the Terrans' Dropship pilot. And while the in-game model of Infested Kerrigan isn't particularly stripperiffic, her appearances in rendered cutscenes and other media most definitely are.
    • According to StarCraft: Ghost, ghosts fight with their derrière uncovered.
  • Star Fox has Krystal, a Nubile Savage whose outfit consists of a metal bikini top, loincloth, assorted jewelry, and tribal tattoos.
  • Star Trek Online has the Orions from the original series as a player character species for the Klingon side, the females of which regularly go about wearing little more than a metal bikini and loincloth. The Federation side dresses much more conservatively, but with some of the premium content (which includes uniforms), a female captain can choose the Enterprise-era Mirror Universe top and one of those skimpy miniskirts from TOS as an official uniform. Less stripperiffic than a metal bikini, but still somewhat inappropriate for the commanding officer of a warship.
  • Chun-Li has always averted this Trope for the most part, until she got her alternate costume in Street Fighter IV which not only showed off her great legs, but also a plunging neckline.
  • Suikoden: Anything Jeane wears will instantly qualify.
  • Some Tales Series ladies have this trope in mind:
    • Tales of Destiny has Rutee, whose outfit reveals several body parts of hers. Well, since she's a thief who tends to sneak around...
    • Tales of Destiny 2 then got it off with Nanaly, who wears a frigging Chainmail Bikini.
    • And then Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World deliciously lampoons the trope, and their own use of it, with the Lezerano Company's good-luck charms, invented by Presea. Among them is "An outfit that despite having a bare midriff, never allows your skin to get cold, and also protects against enemy attacks." Called the Loni-Kyle, for some reason.
    • Also, Judith in Tales of Vesperia. An optional costume gives Estelle the ability to wear a Stripperific outfit as well.
    • And Milla Maxwell in Tales of Xillia. To be fair, someone else picked it out for her, and when she's promoted to the real Maxwell she wears a bit better clothing.
    • Also, Presa in the same game, wearing what can only be described as bondage gear.
    • Velvet from Tales of Berseria will be wearing clothes like this, complete with a tattered short skirt and plenty of underboob.
  • Possibly Midna in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, specifically in her human form.
  • Of all the female clothing in The Matrix Online, the items that have the best buffs or enhancements are the ones which show the most skin.
  • Coupled with Power Perversion Potential in The Movies. When it comes to the sci-fi costumes, the majority of female costumes are inexplicably sexy. There's a space leather suit with a Cleavage Window that comes in either long pants or no pants at all as well as a space belly dancer costume. The men get some of this too with a costume literally titled "Space Hotpants" and another called "Space Gigolo". Then there's an entire category for underwear which means you can have your characters doing their everyday business wearing their underwear in public. You can also force the actors to walk around the studio wearing their underwear too - though their star rating will go down for not keeping up with the latest fashions.
  • Parodied in TimeSplitters: Future Perfect. The henchmen working for Khallos wear the same skintight uniforms as the Henchwomen and complain about it a lot.
  • Tomb Raider: Lara Croft, though she at least tries to dress up for the weather. It's better than a Fur Bikini, but only just.
  • The Unreal series started fairly innocuously, with the females in workwear and armour similar to the males (at least of their faction). Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict (i.e.: Selket) raised the bar, then the bar had a bottle rocket put under it by Unreal II: The Awakening. In that title, the player would face enemy mercenaries in massive powered armour, with the female mercs fully armoured on the limbs but wearing only a plexiglass screen and some circuitry from their thighs to the top of their head.
  • The cast of Vagrant Story wears about enough clothing to cover half as many characters.
  • In the Valis series, Yuko's Valis Suit has consistently been illogically skimpy, being pretty much a bikini and a skirt. Cham/Char in the third game has slightly less impractical armor. In the fourth game, Lena starts off with more modest clothing, even if it's still impractical as battle armor. However, when she gets special armor that grants her temporary invincibility (until it takes enough damage), that special armor turns out to be as skimpy as (or possibly skimpier than) Yuko's.
  • Warhammer Online has two Dark Elf classes, the Witch Elf and Sorceress who wear a spiked metal bikini and non-existent, form-fitting robes, respectively. To elaborate a little: The classes of almost every race dress pretty much equal, assuming they have both genders available. In the case of chaos zealots, it's even the male variant that exposes more skin (he goes bare chested, obviously). The only class that exists for both sexes with the female variant being significantly more exposing is the dark elf sorceress. Now what does that tell us about the physique of male dark elves whose robes generally cover them from neck to toes?.
  • The armour you get in World of Warcraft is often much more revealing on women than on men. However, it must be admitted that as of "Burning Crusade" and especially as of "Wrath of the Lich King", with its heavy emphasis on Nordic-style cold weather armor, Blizzard has gotten much better about this for the players. Some of the new designs for major lore characters are questionable, however.
    • Lady Sylvanas Windrunner, Banshee Queen, Dark Lady, Queen of the Forsaken, and, apparently, Queen of the belly-shirt.
    • In the greater Warcraft universe, Stripperiffic is the modus operandi of the Demon Hunter. Both men and women traditionally go completely topless (sometimes a strip of cloth for the women, but it's up to the individual) and either tight cloth or tight light leather covering for the legs. It fits well with their style, though; Demon Hunters use speed, agility, and special sight to battle opponents, and any additional weight from armor can slow them dangerously. They also rely on runes tattooed on their upper bodies to provide magical protection.
    • Along with Demon Hunters, there are a lot of other instances of equal opportunity Stripperiffic. For example, both male and female Orgrimmar Grunts wear minimalistic armor. There's a lot of it for player characters, too. For example, the Giantstalker set has armored short shorts regardless of the character's gender.
      • The Transmogrification service introduced in Cataclysm allows players to invoke or avert this trope as they see fit, regardless of the normal appearance of their characters' equipment. Simply put, this service allows one piece of equipment to use the appearance of another.
  • In Warcraft 3, most of the Night Elf female units wear little more than bikinis and capes. The Blood Elf Sorceresses wear a low-cut outfit that reveals a lot of cleavage. The character Jaina Proudmoore wears just a sports bra, pants and hooded cape. Subverted with the Night Elf Wardens from WC3's The Frozen Throne expansion, who wear concealing great cloaks and what visible areas are armoured properly. Played disturbingly straight with The Frozen Throne's Dark Ranger, an undead elf in a stripperiffic outfit. On the other hand, the orc units, all male, tend not to wear much either: Thrall wears black plate, the witch doctor black robes, the shaman thick gray furs, the Farseer a hooded cloak, and the Tauren Chieftain a lot of bits. Every other orc, tauren, and troll unit is at the very least shirtless. Both male night elf heroes are shirtless, too.
  • Ayumi, main character of the anime-styled action game X-Blades, fits the trope perfectly. Note that a less covered material (pardon the pun) is Ayumi's Regeneration and Armor clothes, which does cover her but still lands in Chainmail Bikini territory, of the "Relatively realistic armor with a flash of cleavage" flavor.
  • Mai Hem from Perfect Dark Zero wears a very revealing dress. This is lampshaded in-game when a guard describes taking orders from her while not knowing where to look. Joanna Dark (the player character) also plays this trope completely straight by sneaking around a snow-covered mountain pass in a heavy coat and pants...when the former stops just past her breasts.
  • Tenchu 2's Lady Kagami.
  • The PS2 port of Time Crisis 3 has, in its Rescue Mission mode, a cutscene of Alicia disguised as a civilian; in place of her military outfit, she's wearing an open shirt, a bra, and a miniskirt. Then she takes them off to switch to the latter outfit. Somehow, you can hide more conservative clothing under Stripperiffic clothing.
  • Urban Rivals has a lot of this, especially (oddly enough) in the Straw Feminist Pussycats clan.
  • Many female demons from Shin Megami Tensei series, Lilim and Succubus seem to be clear example.
    • But not just them. Angels(!) tend to wear outfits that qualify as kinky BDSM getup, and in some games they wear nothing below the waist at all!
    • Many of the demon girls in the Shin Megami Tensei series exhibit this to varying degrees, most notable Ishtar, Scathach, and Undine.
    • Persona 3: FES notably lampshades this trope. For the most part, female characters wear their school uniforms during the Dark Hour, however some unique costumes can be found which change the model of the character who wears them. A 'High-cut Armor' is described as 'Armor that looks like a bikini', and sure enough, if equipped on a female character, they will verbally acknowledge the ridiculousness of it. Later in the game, all of the main character's swimsuits become available for purchase from the police station, for the modest sum of 300,000 yen.
  • The adverts and home page for Perfect World International seem to become more stripperiffic with every new expansion. The in-game armour for females doesn't seem to fare much better, with the Chainmail Bikini predominating for nearly every race and class.
  • Most female player characters from Sacred. Special mention goes to Seraphim.
  • Gladius has this for both sexes. It works perfectly for its combination of Roman gladiators and Norse vikings (both Real Life examples).
  • Wild ARMs in general tend to avert this trope, even avoiding form-hugging outfits to an extent and cladding its heroines rather modestly, a rarity for modern game franchises.
    • Except the anime. It's amazing Loretta's dress even stays on...
    • Finally played straight with Rebecca Streisand's hot pants in Wild ARMs 5.
  • A lot of the female champions in League of Legends play this trope straight. The only real exceptions are Annie, Poppy, Irelia, Kayle, Lulu, Tristana, Lux, Karma, Riven, Fiora and possibly Sona, depending on whether or not you count an Impossibly-Low Neckline revealing amazing cleavage as stripperiffic. And surprisingly given her Ms. Fanservice status, Ahri merely wears a short-but-not-that-short skirt and shows some cleavage…and her alternate skins are all less revealing.
    • Ashe is thoroughly Exposed to the Elements.
    • Janna practically fights in a bikini.
    • Under her cape, LeBlanc similarly wears a 1-piece swimsuit.
    • Evelynn effectively dresses in bondage gear, complete with spikes.
    • Miss Fortune looks like a pirate-themed stripper.
    • Akali and Soraka both prominently display Sideboob and nice thighs.
    • Morgana basically wears a long skirt and a bra.
    • Caitlyn wears a minidress and a few extraneous belts.
      • Her Officer skin makes her look like a police-themed stripper.
    • Sivir does not wear pants, just a leather bikini-skirt thing with copious ass on display.
    • Nidalee wears only a Fur Bikini.
    • Katarina dresses in revealing black leather.
    • Her sister Cassiopeia wears only a bikini top and some kind of... thingy around her hips.
    • Anivia is another exception. While technically completely naked, the effect is somewhat spoiled by her being a giant bird made entirely of ice.
    • Several of the male champions wear rather revealing outfits as well.
      • Pantheon in particular, wearing at most an opera cape, some briefs, and a helmet. He is based on the Spartans from 300, after all.
    • And of course, all champions have several alternate skins, some more and some less revealing than their normal ones.
    • Leona and Vayne, for example, avert this trope in most of their skins, but both have one alternate skin that play this trope straight.
    • Zyra doesn't so much wear clothing as have a kind of bodysuit made of plant material, combining Body Paint and Form-Fitting Wardrobe. Then again, she's not exactly human...
    • Jinx wears short shorts, a bikini top, boots, and ammunition. And that's it.
  • The Queen of Thorns from Demigod is completely naked, with only a few brambles growing over her delicate areas preventing the game from getting rated for adults only.
  • In Prince of Persia: Warrior Within both the Empress of Time (to some degree) and especially her servant Shahdee wear something that is only a distant poor relative of clothes.
  • Common for female warriors in Rift; less so for other classes. Also common among NPCs; Asha Catari, for example, seems to take pride in her Power Tattoos. And there are plenty of Walking Shirtless Scenes scattered around the game world, too.
  • The K-MMO TERA is already famous (or infamous) for this.
  • Shiki in The World Ends with You wears a crop top and short jacket, along with a very short, low-cut skirt. Her real self, though, averts this completely.
  • Not only isn't the defense-power of clothes in S4 League completely unrelated to how much of the body is covered, the only parts giving any defense at all are pants and hair...
  • Virginia in Million Knights Vermillion.
  • The Elder Scrolls
    • Each game allows you to strip characters, including the Player Character, down to their irremovable underwear, with females wearing a bra and panties. However, should you do so with the player character, most NPCs will comment negatively and, depending on the game, may even refuse to speak with you in this state. Humorously, simply putting on a piece of jewelry (ring, necklace) or a piece of armor which doesn't cover your torso (boots, gloves) is enough to remove the "naked" flag from your character, allowing you to run around in your underwear without the game world reacting.
    • Naturally, Game Mods which allow full nudity are quite popular for each game in the series.
    • Recurring character Almalexia, a Dunmeri Tribunal deity, wears what amounts to a strapless bra, pauldrons, and a fairly sheer loincloth. Fitting, given that she plays up the Hot Godess trope.
    • The cover art for Arena features a female warrior in the smallest bikini possible - even though no such "armor" appears in the game itself.
    • Morrowind has Desele's House of Earthly Delights in Suran, essentially a topless bar. It includes three dancers who will "perform" on stage.
    • Skyrim has several armor and clothing types which become this when equipped by a female character. Most notable is the Ancient Nord Armor, which, in certain spots, covers even less than the default underwear.
  • Hunted: The Demon's Forge: It seems female characters aren't allowed armor.
  • Gradius's spin off, Otomedius, takes a Moe Anthropomorphism trope to a new level. Cool Ship like Vic Viper and Lord British are now Stripperiffic women wearing spacesuits that do not even cover their breasts properly. Given that the artist was the same one doing Sgt. Frog, it's not surprising.
  • Magical Mysteries: Path of the Sorceress has the PC clad in a spaghetti-strap sheer top and thong bottom which would look much more appropriate in a Victoria's Secret fantasy lingerie show. Slightly justified as she is a sorceress, but when all of the (undead) bosses so far have been both male/sexless and dressed in full armor or robes...
  • Skullgirls has quite a few. The main ones are Cerebella, Ms. Fortune, and Valentine. At least Ms. Fortune is a justified example, in that her fighting style involves removing and reattaching her limbs and this would be somewhat inconvenient without skimpy clothing (though this doesn't excuse her Underboobs). Cerebella and especially Valentine, however, have no excuses.
  • Forsworn armor in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim turns into a Fur Bikini on female characters.
  • Kainé helps NieR fight Shades wearing what amounts to some bandages and lacy lingerie. Justified and deconstructed; she dresses that way because of body-image issues from being half-Shade and intersexed.
  • Rusty Hearts: Natasha's default outfit is a small jacket over a cleavage-and-midriff-baring corset and a miniskirt, and some other options take it Up to Eleven. Meilin defaults to a qipao minidress with sideboob. Roselle has a tiny top with underboob and a bottom that can't decide if it wants to be panties or hotpants. Angela stands out by averting this with a full if sleeveless blouse and knee-length skirt.
  • When the goddesses of Neptunia enter Hard Drive Divinity mode, they switch into outfits that are significantly more revealing than their everyday attire. Most noteworthy would have to be Vert and Uni. CFW Magic ups the ante more.
    • Chika Hakozaki's dress doesn't show as much as the outfits of the aforementioned characters, but still manages to not leave so much to the imagination.
    • Noire's HDD outfit in the third game reveals slightly more than it did in the original; Neptune's doesn't change very much, but the abdomen part is now mostly transparent. Additionally, Noire's regular dress ditches the cleavage, but shows off midriff and Zettai Ryouiki instead.
      • Street musician 5pb. is guilty of midriff as well.
    • In actuality, all playable characters with DLC swimsuit outfits could be this.
  • Reika, the Player Character of Time Gal, is barely dressed. Somehow, she's able to make it through the ice age without freezing to death.
  • Solange from Code of Princess. Lampshaded when two soldiers mistake her for a prostitute.
  • Let's see...in Sengoku Basara, we have Nohime, who provides the game's entry into She's Got Legs, while her style-Expy Magoichi Saika is full on Bare Your Midriff with a side of corsets, and Kasuga is a 'ninja' with Absolute Cleavage that goes all the way down to her crotch, we kid you not. On the male side of things, there is no way that Yukimura should get away with this in a Sengoku-era battlefield.
  • Just to rub it in, Samurai Warriors also has Noh showing legs and cleavage in spades. Neither Kai, Nene, nor Kunoichi are little better, since the last one shows even more skin than the first two. Newcomer Naotara Ii isn't helping matters either. The men's side of things is held up this time by Motochika Chosokabe, who is shooting for some kind of goth/rock star/sex god visual effect.
  • Scarlet Blade the game only features female classes who only wear super stripperiffic outfits.
  • Unusually for a Mario game, the princesses in Mario Strikers have rather revealing clothing.
  • In Baten Kaitos, Savyna double subverts this. She looks like she's wearing very skintight clothing but it's just a side-effect of the character models in general being a little thinner than the official art; in which her clothing actually appears somewhat bulkier - especially around the arms. Given that she's a fist-fighter, this makes sense. Her legs, however, are just as shown-off in her art as they are in-game.
  • Lampshaded in Project X Zone. Whenever a villain wearing an overly revealing outfit is introduced, Frank West will take a picture of her and a pink "O" along with the words "Perfect! - Erotica" will appear over the character, just like in Dead Rising, the game Frank crossed over from.
  • Sudeki had this in droves, which the advertising campaign took full advantage of. The main female character, Ailish, has a default outfit that consists of a very small breastplate and a pair of short shorts, with boots and high stockings. She is featured prominently on the box art. Her outfit, while still form-fitting, becomes less revealing over the game. Buki, on the other hand, has an outfit that evolves into a Thong of Shielding by the end of the game.
  • Borderlands 2 spoofs this in the Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep'' DLC. One of the missions is to find a suit of armor for Ellie. Naturally, the first armor piece you find is a metal bikini top. Ellie promptly complains about how useless it is, and gives an optional objective to "find less atrociously sexist armor". When you find said armor, the item description is "Sturdy and protective (like armor, you know, should be)."
  • In PlanetSide 2, the female soldiers of the Vanu Sovereignty all wear skin-tight spandex. On the other hand, said skin-tight latex is also worn by male soldiers. Infiltrators from all empires in both games wear skin-tight suits, regardless of gender. Averted for other armor, which aside from a protruding chest plate, is pretty much identical to male armor. MAX suits come in one-size-fits-all.
  • Morgan, the bikini-clad archer in Aquapazza. It gets lampshaded a few times. Sasara's valkyie cosplay armor and the school festival bikini in her ending aren't very practical, either.
  • Ruby in Omega Five wears a thong corset, stockings w/garters, high heels, and a translucent Showgirl Skirt, with a jacket on top.
  • Linda, Shun, and Evil Marian in Double Dragon Neon.
  • Tanya Winters from Saints Row wears only a bra, a miniskirt and stockings. Justified as being a former hooker who clawed and slept her way to the top.
  • In the Amiga Fighting Game Dangerous Streets, the outfits of the two female fighters, Luisa and Lola, reveal inordinate amounts of skin, which is only emphasized by the Boobs-and-Butt Pose they often assume.
  • In Gladiatrix, many armours and clothing the titular gladiatrix can wear expose lots of skin.
  • The main character in Totem Tribe is clad in a leopard-print knee-length slit skirt which shows a great deal of leg and a breast band which covers her nipple area and very little else.
  • Ivo the elf in The Book of Unwritten Tales wears knee-high boots, short shorts and a very brief vest which just about covers her breasts in front and vees drastically in back.
  • In Kult: Heretic Kingdoms, the outfit worn by the protagonist in drawn artwork (such as in the game intro) is basically half a miniskirt, a metal bra, and some straps. In-game, players can choose various starting outfits for her, all of which are on the revealing side (e.g. a minimalist Minidress of Power). However, you do find some actual armour to wear fairly quickly once gameplay begins.
  • In Amazing Princess Sarah, the title character has a cleavage-bearing outfit with a Showgirl Skirt and stockings, and the succubus antagonists have even more revealing attire.
  • Uncommon Time averts this for the main cast, but the elemental spirits tend to wear very revealing outfits — particularly Bravura, who appears to be in her underwear. Scherzo also wears a Leotard of Power. Averted with Poetica and Luminoso, who wear full dresses.
  • Monster Hunter, some of the female armors stand out because of this trope, they are Kirin Armor and Azul Armor. Female armor sets in general have a 20-40% chance of being this, but there are also a lot of Battle Ballgowns and everything in between to boot. Some sets, like the Bone armor, are skimpy even on male hunters.
  • Body Harvest: Daisy's revealing outfit, which looks like it came straight out of Métal Hurlant. However, since she's Mission Control for most of the game it's not on display that much.
  • In Shantae, the title character, who is a Belly Dancer, wears somewhat-low-cut pants, and her top is essentially a strapless bra... and by the standards of the female villains and NPCs, she's actually toward the more modest end of the outfit spectrum. There is a recurring outfit (which appears in one segment of Pirate's Curse and a bonus mode in Risky's Revenge) that is far and away skimpier, with an even smaller top and plenty of uncovered leg, and one of its effects in Risky's Revenge is reducing Shantae's defense.
  • In Wasteland 2, when creating a custom squad at the start of the game, it is possible to make your entire crew wear nothing but underwear, with things like bras, panties and tights being available even for male characters.
  • Xenoblade Chronicles:
    • It's the players' choice, but very much possible. The Oil/Cream equipment sets are sets that basically strip the character using it down to swimwear, and they'll walk around and slay monsters wearing basically only sandals and bikini/trunks. To boot, they're actually good equipment sets with generally higher physical and ether defense than most sets found in the same areas, though they require to be farmed, since they mostly drop from Unique Monsters.
    • Dunban has a skill called Inner Peace, which grants him a great bonus of agility (his key stat) if he is wearing no armor at all, so he would just walk around wearing almost nothing, but being very fast in the meanwhile. Furthermore, this skill is transferable, meaning all characters with high enough affinity with him can also do this.
  • In Slipstream 5000, this applies to at least two of the three female drivers. Isis just has a lot of cleavage on a relatively sensible jumpsuit, but Victoria is basically in a bikini top, and the Matsu twins are somehow even more minimally clad. Since the competitors are all celebrity icons, impractical costumes may well be part of their public brand.
  • Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain allows female player characters to wear tops that show off their cleavage, midriff, or both, as well as figure-hugging leather pants. Furthermore, Lian Xing intentionally invokes this trope when she dons a bikini during part of her bonus mission.
