A particular form of Our Fairies Are Different, namely a pixie that's young, female and attractive. Doesn't generally wear too many clothes, sometimes just leaves or flower petals. If the fairy is far smaller than human, Fridge Logic may ensue.
- Disney's cashing in on the sexy Tinkerbell thing with the Disney Fairies spinoff.

- Lilymon in Digimon Adventure, as well as Fairymon and Ranamon (who's based on a water nymph) in Digimon Frontier.

Films -- Live-Action

- The Green Fairy Absinthe from Moulin Rouge. Indeed, most depictions of the Green Fairy fall under this -- but Moulin Rouge! has Kylie Minogue. Who is briefly voiced by Ozzy Osbourne.
- Peter Pan: Tinkerbell.
- Laughing Sisters, barmaids and Fan Service in Bloody Fist tavern, Waterdeep. They also help deal with "problem customers". And always giggle.
- Holly Black's Modern Tales of Faerie series portrays many types of faeries as much more beautiful than mortals -- if a little bit inhuman-looking along with it.
- Holly from Artemis Fowl.
- A male example: Tybalt, the Cait Sidhe king from Seanan McGuire's October Daye series, definitely falls into this category and almost always appears in tight leather pants.

- Dungeons and Dragons, as explained here.
- Pixies in Shin Megami Tensei games tend to be depicted like this (an example, from Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne).
- The Great Fairies from The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time wear ridiculously little clothing -- they're more wrapped up in vines than anything else. Then again, they come off as more creepy than sexy...
- In The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess, the "attractive young Great Fairies" return (after being replaced in Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda the Minish Cap by more abstract-looking fairies), but instead of vine-clothing, they have Godiva Hair, a much higher polygon count, and no creepy voice.
- The fairies in the earlier, 2D games weren't particularly detailed, but could qualify (especially if the art's anything to go by).

- The pixies in Shining the Holy Ark generally show a lot of skin. The Pixie is in what seems like a skin-tight swimsuit. The Succubus likes to show off her ass. While the Incubus provides some eye-candy for the ladies. Also the Queen of the pixies shows a lot of cleavage.
- Celia from Order of the Stick is a human-sized fairy called a "Sylph". She's elemental-kin rather than fairy, even though in OotS sylphs aren't Always Female. Also, there are her cousins: Earth counterpart (though she doesn't looks like Pech) who was just quietly offed, and Fire who was killed off-screen. Celia was "lucky" enough to be "only" petrified.
- Homestuck: Vriska convinces boy skylark Tavros to make a stand for daring and derring do, don his plucky "Pupa Pan" costume and fly to fight the horror awaiting which turns out to be her waiting in a skimpy fairy costume. At this point he falls into her web and her black widow motif goes Up to Eleven.
- If anyone still thinks Tom Siddell abhors Fan Service -- here are Regional Fairies Paper Moo and Blankets. And "More traditional fairies".
