Honestly i dont see all this fanservice in Avengers, Assemble!. I watched Black Widow and her design is really innocent (especially compared to other animated versions).

Pulled these:

  • Biker Mice from Mars
    • The titular characters' human ally Charley Davidson has her moments of this, one of the most notable instances being in "The Masked Motorcyclist", where she gets past Throttle, Vinnie, and Modo's insistence for her to stay out of the action by disguising herself with a helmet and a catsuit.
    • Throttle's girlfriend Carbine has two moments of this in "Seeds of Victory". She takes a shower in one scene and in another is subjected to Male Gaze by having a closeup of her butt appear in the foreground.
    • Vinnie's girlfriend Harley gets a chance during the 2006 revival in the final episode "Turf Wars". Her Evil Costume Switch involves wearing a rather form-fitting uniform.

Because first off, this is a character trope. You can't have "moments" of it.

Secondly, I think this might list every single recurring female in the show. Ms. Fanservice is supposed to be "this character is here for fanservice," but as written this is more "this character is hot" (though Carbine looks like it might be an example if rewritten). The examples might fit Hello, Nurse! better, but as written don't fit that either, and I don't know the material well enough to be sure.

I agree that this was a mistake, so I pulled the corresponding trope entry from the main article.

However, there appear to be other entries that mention characters being Ms. Fanservice for an episode, which I'm not sure counts as the trope in light of this information.

And looking up the episodes isn't easy. Most episodes of Biker Mice from Mars that are uploaded on the Internet, at least the original series, aren't in English.

Yeah, it's one of those tropes that gets misused a lot. Thanks for being so reasonable.

rafi, you seem to have a loose grasp of this trope, either that, or your example context is simply not sufficient.

  • Animaniacs has the famous, sexy and blonde nurse, Hello, Nurse! (trope image of Impossible Hourglass Figure and one of classic example in the western animation) and Minerva Mink, an attractive, beautiful and sexy anthromorphic mink (reason why the censors found her cartoons Too Hot for TV and scrapped them).
  • The Fairly OddParents!:
    • The Tooth Fairy. She is recognized as the most beautiful fairy (Cosmo is not happy when she married Jorgen). It help have a humanoid body.

These are just describing why they're attractive, not why they're fanservicey, alongside several irrelevant details (I don't care if she's the trope image for anything, it's not useful information). If you want to list them as examples, you need to properly convey how they provide fanservice, not just "they're sexy."

However, there is a far greater issue with your edits: your grammar is extremely poor.

  • Older Than Television: Betty Boop was filling this role as early as 1930 and is one of the pioneering animated examples. In her short, Betty got Panty Shot and Hello, Nurse! reaction from nearly every male character she encountered before the Hays Code interfered.
  • Superman: The Animated Series:
    • Lois Lane, a major example of animated Hot Scoop. She receive more Male Gaze on her legs and mini-skirt.
    • Supergirl that has a very hourglass figure depite her age and wear Bare Your Midriff costumes.
    • Marcie, the Lex's bodyguard (to the point where the android, while channeling Flash, hits on her) that wears a ridiculously short dress.

All of these examples have several blatant errors. Even your edit reason was poorly written ("nonsense delete this. the characters role in the series is provided Fanservice."). We don't expect editors to have perfect grammar, but writing examples with this many errors is simply not acceptable. I suggest running future edits through the Get Help With English thread until you improve. Also...

  • Livewire and Volcana for the villains.

Why did you uncomment this? It's a clear Zero-Context Example, yet you added no context to it.

For the grammar, I'm sorry but my English is not very good. I do my best, I entrust to other users for the corrections. The ZCE is my mistake. For Animaniacs example..if the role of a character is just be attractive, in each appearance, is Fanservice.

Making grammatically poor edits and expecting other tropers to clean up your messes is bad conduct. Especially since many pages don't have curators to watch out for stuff like that. Edits filled with grammar errors and typos damage the wiki, so tropers with poor grammar are frequently suspended from editing. For that reason, I highly recommend using that thread I linked in my previous post from now on.

EDIT: Looking at your most recent revision, I noticed another problem (overuse of parentheses).

I agree she is sexy as heel adult or child.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
