Meet Tonga’s Oiled Olympic Flag Bearer, Pita Taufatofua TODAY

So, you're flipping through the channels on your TV, waiting for the end of the commercial break and...

Hold that thought. Who's this guy? And why does the camera keep panning down his open shirt?

Meet Mr. Fanservice! This character has been given the role of the show's primary source of Manservice. If he's in a show that isn't already aimed at women (or gay men), this can be an effective way of getting their attention. Expect to see at least one shirtless scene.

The Spear Counterpart to Ms. Fanservice. See also Eating the Eye Candy, and Bishonen Jump Syndrome, which discusses the increase of these in manga and anime.

Please note: Just because somebody is hot does not mean they are a Mr. Fanservice. If you wish to gush about your male fictional crush, please take it to Perverse Sexual Lust.

  • 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.
