• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Basic trope: A character, usually male, whose main purpose is to appeal to female viewers.

  • Straight: Bob, a well-built guy in the series, is always seen topless/wearing a suit and tie.
  • Exaggerated: Bob is never seen wearing anything except cargo shorts.
  • Justified: Bob is sexy, and he knows it. Being a man, of course he's going to flaunt his physique at every chance.
  • Inverted: Ms. Fanservice
  • Subverted: ???
  • Double Subverted: ???
  • Parodied: Every time he walks into a room, Bob attracts a stare from every single women inside. He also lampshades it with a "Ladies, please, hold your orgasms."
  • Deconstructed: Bob ends up with an unwanted harem because of his physique, and decides to put on a bit of weight to lose them.
  • Reconstructed: But most of the girls leave when he tells them his plan, meaning he doesn't have to lose his physique.
  • Zig Zagged: ...right up until they hear that he abandoned the plan, and eventually find him again.
  • Averted: Bob always wears a suit and tie, even when fighting (which can still be seen as sexy).
  • Enforced: "We need more female views! Let's put in a guy they can fantasize about!"
  • Lampshaded: See Parodied.
  • Defied: "I may be sexy, but I ain't some object for women to gush over."
  • Conversed: "Wow, did they put Bob in solely to make other guys jealous?" "Nah-they did it to make to the fangirls of the series squee."
  • Discussed: "Bob, how do you stay warm without even a damn T-shirt?"
  • Played for Drama: Bob gets a female Stalker with a Crush halfway through the series. The stalker is mostly a nuisance fangirl, until she kills one of the other Love Interests out of jealousy/to try to impress Bob. Bob then has to find her before more women die, regretting that he didn't see this coming.

Back to Mr. Fanservice, ladies.
