Tropedia

  • 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.

  • Caleb in WITCH, receives a Shirtless Scene in the episode "The Underwater Mines".
  • Ulrich Stern of Code Lyoko. Let's see...several Shirtless Scenes, Troubled but Cute, Big Man on Campus without even trying, at least 2 Modesty Towel scenes, Sensual Spandex Lyoko form in Season 4, Tall, Dark and Snarky...it really is no wonder he's a total Chick Magnet in universe and out.
  • Ben and Kevin from Ben 10 Alien Force. Ben is a well groomed, green eyed Pretty Boy that gets a couple of shirtless scenes. Kevin's clothes tend to get torn and tattered in fights. The rampant subtext between them doesn't hurt either.
  • Stork from Storm Hawks appears in his underwear, in a towel, cross-dressed as a woman, and nude in Season 2.
  • Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm. Admit it, at least one of you must have drooled at pretty Asian shirtless Liu Kang.
  • OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes has a few examples:
    • Raymond is a "sporty Casanova" who speaks in a sultry voice and has an elegant hairstyle and an athletic build. Since he's a robot, he's technically naked 90% of the time, and when he does wear clothes, one can expect them to flatter his build very well (such as the very revealing swimsuit he wore in the Beach Episode.) Add in some flourishing poses, provocative dance moves, and a healthy dose of Homoerotic Subtext with Radicles for good measure.
    • Laserblast had a broad Heroic Build that he showed off with a tight-fitting outfit and sleeveless shirt. His square jaw, Perma-Stubble, and deep, smooth voice (provided by Steven Ogg) certainly didn't hurt, either.
    • Professor Venomous has a slender yet muscular build and long, shapely legs that are accentuated with stylish, form-fitting wardrobe and some very provocative poses. His good looks are accentuated by his long hair, tasteful eye makeup, deep voice (also provided by Steven Ogg), and debonair attitude. It's eventually revealed that Venomous and the aforementioned Laserblast are the same person, and Laserblast's transformation into Venomous is shown through a few rather enticing shirtless scenes. He’s also endeared himself to the Furry Fandom (due to his more serpentine characteristics) and the yaoi fans (being canonically bisexual and in a loving same-sex relationship.)
  • Henry on The Amazing Chan and The Chan Clan, in a way. He's dressed very conservatively (except in the comic version of episode 3), but his pants are rather tight and he's drawn as being the "hunk" of the boys. Plus there's his voice.
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender has Prince Zuko. Though he may not have been intended as such at first, the creators quickly caught on and lampshaded the hell out of his Mr. Fanservice status in the second and third seasons.
    • The Legend of Korra has Mako, who, unlike Zuko, seems completely intended as one from the beginning, as he's actually had more outfit changes than Korra and his scenes normally include a lot of unnecessary panning and posturing. Even the creators, his bio on the Nick website and his voice actor make it a point to mention that Mako is good-looking.
    • His brother, Bolin is this both in-universe and among the fanbase.
  • Braeburn from My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic seems to be an unintentional example of this, although you wouldn't know it from the prominence of his Estrogen Brigade within the pony fandom.
  • Lance from Sym-Bionic Titan.
  • Jack himself in Samurai Jack mix badass with a gentle soft spoken nature toward his allies, a protective--almost parental--personality toward the weak, add a good dollop of Japanese Politeness and sprinkle with copious amounts of Shirtless Scenes, and this is what you get.
  • Chat up the female Galaxy Rangers fanbase; all three of the male leads have fangirl-attracting qualities. Take your pick:
  • Red Arrow, a reoccuring character on Young Justice, was transformed from Green Arrow's hat-with-feather-wearing sidekick in the first episode to a sexy solitary superhero with a uniform that shows off his fantastic arms and even wearing an even more fantastic suit for the majority of episode 10.
    • Superboy is a much straighter example. Show events go out of their way to make sure he loses his shirt somehow,and he plays up many different fanservice tropes.
  • Raymundo and Jack Spicer from Xiaolin Showdown are considered to be this, specially the latter for his "getting his pants ripped off scenes" and once appearing in nothing but a towel.
  • Cartoon Network's Toonami block had TOM, with a nosebleedingly sexy build and hot deep voice. When Adult Swim revived the block in 2012, TOM got a chrome re-paint and sexy-ass hand gestures. As of 2013, we have a slimmer, leaner, angrier-looking TOM, who blurs the line between adorable and sexy.
  • Takashi "Shiro" Shirogane in Voltron: Legendary Defender is a hunky, well-built man who wears skintight casual clothes when he's not wearing form-fitting battle armor. This is even lampshaded in the episode "The Voltron Show!" where Coran insists Shiro wear a super-tight shirt for one performance. (Sadly, we never get to see him in said shirt.)
