Ultra-2

She ain't gonna finish it with a kiss. . .

As Guybrush Threepwood once said, "The human body is a beautiful thing. Most of the time."


  • Rinnosuke is one of the fewer than a handful of males in the entire Touhou verse, and some smart-aleck decided that he deserved a truly EPIC ability, seen in the Fan Disservice index page. ...Thank you, we did NOT need that. A giant duck head and manpits. Ugh.
  • In the second case of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, the Sexy Mentor Obi Wan Mia Fey is murdered. Phoenix finds her propped up against a wall, her cleavage on display and her long legs apart and very, very dead. Then there's a shot of a very pretty girl, her little sister Maya, crying her eyes out over the body... Followed by Maya being accused of killing Mia.
  • The infamous Bathtub Scare from Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem had Alexandra Roivas getting a vision of her dead, naked body in a bathtub full of blood.
  • Rule of Rose is made with this in mind. The horror is caused by graphic scenes of small children causing Fetish Fuel -- the trailer alone shows a very, very deep nine-year-old curtsy, followed immediately by a scene with legs kicking ambiguously which is revealed to be three children excitedly drawing a picture. The game itself involves scenes of children binding up, beating, doing water torture, and sucking on the fingertips on the heroine, an adult woman. The effect is every inch disturbing.
    • The whole point of the trailer was to disturb the viewer with its implied sexuality. There is no actual sex or anything remotely graphical in the game itself, but it still manages to allude to early development of sexual feelings, and the problems and awkwardness that result from it.
    • Diana is particular is the master of this. The source of a good half of the above material, her obvious attractiveness, mixture of vulnerability and sadism, charisma and mastery of her own sexuality have made her extremely popular with both male and female fans... which is somewhat spoiled by the fact that she's almost certainly a sexual abuse victim and about fourteen years old. Her abusive relationship with her Dragon Meg doesn't help.
  • Mortal Kombat, especially after the reboot, is drenched in both Fanservice and this trope:
  • Bloodline Champions has female versions of the Vanguard and Thorn who aren't rather... urgh. The Glutton and Blood Priest bloodlines are more or less this in all outfits.
  • An unlockable story scene in Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter has a scene of Nina clones floating naked in tanks. And if the uncanny valley lolicon isn't enough, the camera pans up to reveal that none of them have heads.
  • In Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater, the boss unzips her Spy Catsuit, showing plenty of skin, in order to show Snake a large, ugly scar.
    • In the same game, any enjoyment that could be had from Big Boss shirtless and bound is destroyed by the brutal torture to which he's being subjected. If that wasn't bad enough, he even, quite literally, pisses himself because a powerful electrical current and loses muscle control during the scene, and the dark stain remains for the whole sequence. And then The Boss takes out her knife and heads straight for his eyes...
    • Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of the Patriots has some partly-Twincestuous Ho Yay kisses, dialogue and touching, which would have been much hotter had both characters looked roughly thirty years younger, weren't currently dying, and weren't moral enemies actively trying to kill each other.
    • It also has the Beauty and the Beast Unit; extremely beautiful women who wear heavily-armed Power Armor. When removed from said armor, they basically rub themselves all over Snake in the most sexual possible way. However, they are all dangerously insane, suffering from intense PTSD caused by the horrors of war they witnessed and endured. Snake is injured by their touches, and responds in confused horror to their advances, as if he was the victim of a rape. Most obviously, there's also the fact that Snake looks about seventy-five years old. It could have been even worse. Originally, Kojima had planned on having them completely nude under their armor. This would have undoubtedly made the Fan Disservice even more disturbing than it already was, but the idea was scrapped due to them being unable to find a way to pull it off without heavy censorship and/or raising the game's rating. Instead, they settled for the skin-tight outfits
    • Then there's the "sexy photoshoot" Easter Egg. Many fanboys seem to see it as regular Fan Service, but some people think it's just plain creepy (probably intentionally, this being MGS).
    • Psycho Mantis from Metal Gear Solid: He's dressed in very, very sexual bondage gear, and psychically forces the main female character to seduce Snake. He's also incredibly emaciated, and, when his mask is taken off, horribly facially mutilated.

 Mind Controlled Meryl Sounding Not-Quite Right: Hold me Snake! Make love to me, quickly!

    • The Metal Gear Solid artbook contains gorgeously drawn artistic nudes of Sniper Wolf, Solid Snake, and Psycho Mantis. It's worth observing that Mantis is the only one whose genitals are visible, and he appears to be pierced.
    • Handled quite subtly in Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater, where sexy beautiful EVA is walking around in her underwear, revealing her scarred back from being sexually abused by Volgin. Probably the only time Snake actually reaches out to her instead of the other way around is when he runs two fingers along an ugly one on the small of her back, looking very guilty about what she's having to go through.
  • In Snatcher, Gillian junks a beautiful female Snatcher. In the original Japanese version, her dress tears as she falls, and her corpse lies on the floor with its breasts on display and its head exploded in a mess of artificial blood, matted hair and broken mechanics.
  • In Quest for Glory IV there is a character known as Rusalka, who is a naked woman with Godiva Hair that invites you to swim with her. Of course, if you do she drags you under the water and drowns you. If you're a paladin, you're allowed to save her. The final step is kissing her. By the time you get to that step she has become a rotting corpse, who's in the exact same pose.
  • Final Fantasy X has Yunalesca, who is covering probably about 5-10% of her body. When you fight her and defeat her first form, she summons a series of Combat Tentacles as part of her second form. After that, she summons the rest of that part -- a giant Medusa head (not related to Castlevania 's Goddamn Medusa Heads), which may terrify you if you don't expect it.
  • In what has got to be the cruelest joke ever played by the producers of a video game, your final reward for completing the Hell Temple of La-Mulana, a Platform Hell level in an already Nintendo Hard game, is a skimpy swimsuit. The Fan Disservice comes when you then see Professor Lemeza, the very male main character, wearing the thing! The game itself tells you, twice, that you don't want it.

 Deceased Crab: Ha! Nothing can make me regret the effort I've put into this. Nothing!

  • In Parasite Eve, the eponymous villain transforms in increasingly Squicky ways, losing more and more of her humanity (not to say dress) every time. By the end, she's completely naked, with several dozen breasts and a mass of pulsating flesh in which the Ultimate Being is gestating.
    • What makes this worse is that, to a point, she's actually doesn't look all that bad. Initially, she looks monstrous but quite humanoid and feminine, then she advances to the pregnancy bit, which at one brief moment (in a cutscene where she looks extremely feminine and maternal) has a weird "pregnancy brings out your inner beauty" kind of appeal. However, right after this brief interlude the game segues back to normal and the disservice hits you in the face like a brick.
  • World of Warcraft:
    • The way Sylvanas Windrunner dresses is kind of disturbing when you think about it. While she's got the classic appealing elven form, she is undead, her skin blue from discoloration caused by decomposition and necromantic energies.
    • Princess Theradas wears a bikini... but has three tusked faces, four arms, and is almost spherical.
    • Her mother Therazane is just about spherical herself, to the point that her arms just stick out to the sides and her legs are basically stubs. Her breasts are only her hair covering them, but they're made of cracked rock. And that's before you get to her mouthful of dagger-sharp purple crystals...
  • In Final Fantasy VII, Jenova, in her tank, has a curvaceous woman's body. She also has no head and an eyeball for a nipple. Oh, and her skin is blue. Afterward, it gets worse.
    • And that isn't even mentioning the giant red something, the lack of arms, the disturbingly invasive test tubes and the veins. If you manage to get her Crisis Core version into a model viewer, you learn that she has an external seven chambered heart. Along with several other external organs that just add to her Bizarre Alien Biology, and there appears to be a hole that the giant red tube/vein/umbilical's coming out of when you see the headless Jenova. Some of those organs may not have always been on the outside.... In the Compilation renders of the scene, you can also spot her resemblance to Sephiroth, which makes even him attain some inherited Squick as a result.
    • A certain scene in Part 2 features a shirtless Sephiroth... Acutally the upper half of Sephiroth's body, encased in a big Mako block.
  • The Bubble Head Nurses and Mannequins in Silent Hill 2, representative of the protagonist's severe issues with women and sex, while the Abstract Daddy monsters were representative of someone else's...
    • And for the female (and surely some male) fans, there's also Pyramid-Head. Who has a hot body and wears nothing but a long apron, and then, y'know, the pyramid torture helmet and a gallon or so of blood. And has a tongue that's black and about a foot long. If it has legs, he rapes it. So any semblance of sexiness that his body had is lost when you first see him fucking a screaming mannequin. But, then again, this is Silent Hill we're talking about.
    • The nurses were in fact so successful at this trope that they have become almost as emblematic of the series as its Dark World. They make reappearances in the fifth game and The Movie, improved graphics and incredible makeup and acting respectively increasing the disturbing factor by at least a magnitude, while an altered version in the third game replace the deformed head with blood-splattered mouths (which also happen to scream horribly when hit).
    • Needless to say, in Silent Hill, anything remotely sexy will be anything but. Such as the revealing dress that Eileen wears, which exposes the numerous injuries she suffered when Walter almost beat her to death. Or the vampish Maria splayed out on a bed, dead and covered in blood. Or anything related to the obscene levels of Freud Was Right in all of the games.
  • Clive Barker's Jericho has Hanne Lichthammer, a once-human-turned-demon, after she was assimilated by the Firstborn. She wears a very, VERY tight-fitting, S&M-style SS uniform which just barely manages to contain her breasts. This is made considerably less sexy when you consider that she is skinned from her lower jaw down to her torso, has her lips torn open (exposing her teeth in a ghastly permanent grin), the skin on the back of her head has been slashed into little strips, and she is absolutely covered with blood (some of which is pouring out of her eyes, nose and mouth). Oh, and she can vomit acid.
    • The demonic Sumerian priestesses also count, particularly Inanna, who, while sporting gratuitous sideboob, also has a skeletal, flayed face, and is covered in blood.
  • Clive Barker's Undying has Lizbeth walk around in a shredded white dress, which would look sexy if she wasn't a cursed undead and the sheer amount of blood staining down the front from her previous meal.
  • The Lunar games have Bromides of the female characters hidden around the world for the player to collect. These are usually either Fan Service, cute, or sorta related to their personalities. The second game has a Bromide of Borgan, an obscenely obese male villain, in the tub, which he tells you to never look at. So of course, you do. Some clever git has uploaded it to this wiki; search at your own peril.
  • In Super Metroid you can see a clear animation of Samus in her sports bra/shorts combo before the 100% Completion ending. It's also Samus' death animation (as her armor disintegrates around her).
  • You would think a game where the main villain is an attractive young woman who walks around completely naked for the majority of her appearances would be pretty sweet, right? F.E.A.R. teaches you to think otherwise.
    • The final battle of Project Origin involves Becket shooting it out with Keegan interspersed with the disturbing and extremely unerotic images and sounds of Alma raping Becket's body.
    • It doesn't help that half the time, Alma is an emaciated corpse, and for most of the above sequence, the sounds she's making are hideously distorted and almost inhuman.
  • This is implemented on purpose in the "N Faux Mercial" cutscene of Crash: Mind over Mutant.
  • In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess there is a shirtless scene of Link. The catch: Link is wrestling with a morbidly obese, geriatric man who is not only shirtless, but wearing nothing but a sumo belt.
  • Odin Sphere has Odette, the Queen of the Underworld. Her breasts and face are pretty much the only scraps of flesh that haven't completely rotted away. And she lifts up her skirt several times... to reveal her crotch is a giant spider. Not a turn-on.
  • Resident Evil 5 featured Jill walking around in a black and purple spy suit. In a battle with her, she unzips the suit to reveal a strange device above her cleavage. Pulling it off leaves the flesh mangled and scarred... and rather than zip the suit back up, she leaves it all exposed for the rest of the game.
  • Taokaka of Blaz Blue is a curvy, Darkskinned Blonde Catgirl wearing nothing but a hooded jacket, panties, and boots. She also has a (lack of) face that looks like the result of a Black Mage, a Black Isz, a Jawa and a random Catgirl getting really drunk one night and deciding to do something they'd never speak of again. There's a reason one of the most common ways of drawing her Off-Model is to give her a normal catgirl face. And, to make this totally weird, despite giving her quite possibly the least sexy face possible, they've done some very fanservicey official art. At this point, it's anyone's guess whether they wanted her to be genuinely sexy, sexy mixed with a bit of The Faceless-fueled Squick for flavor, or something else entirely.
    • Co-creator Daisuke Ishiwatari has gone on record saying he wanted to leave it to the players imagination. So if her face really does look like that, or she's wearing a mask or her true face is covered in shadows and weather or not it's pretty, ugly or just plain is up to you. Her body is really the only thing that can be said to be undeniably beautiful.
  • You do get to see Cybil's bare breasts in Trauma Center, but only by the time you're slicing her body open to remove the Paraskevi that's attacking her.
  • Luther "The Creeper" Stickwell and his Combat Tentacles made of hookers' bodies. Yeah, you might find those scantily-clad prostitutes vaguely alluring, but there's no escaping the fact that all three of them are cojoined to the torso of a bloated, giggling, doll-eyed monstrosity in a dirty raincoat. And all three of those girls have daggers for tongues. Oh, and just in case you hadn't lost sight of the sheer horror of the situation, The Creeper seems to have a thing for you, and gives you a phone call in a high-pitched effeminate voice just to let you know.
    • Even his defeat is not that much satisfactory as you see him being stabbed by his own hookers, like he's finally the one to be raped, and he perversely enjoys it.
  • Saya no Uta is a disturbing inversion. Sure, the h-scenes are actually somewhat less horrifying than what you see through regular gameplay (as well as censored), but the Squick is still rather high when you realize that these scenes involve literal mindscrewing, Saya looks like she isn't legal in the least, and the fact the sex is merely supposed to be a punctuation mark on how fucked up the game is (though if one runs the h-scenes through a heavy self-denial filter on what they represent, they actually are bearable in terms of being able to stomach them by a wide margin as opposed to the regular game play). And just imagine how the h-scenes would look like from a normal character's perspective.
    • The scene of Yousuke raping Saya. Not over an hour ago, he was your friendly neighborhood family man. After having his senses altered to be just like Fuminori's, the guy goes insane, kills his family, and the next thing you know he's sadistically raping a loli. Him getting excited over Saya's struggling to break free from him was just..well...I'm gonna need a few barrels of Brain Bleach.
  • One ending of Harvester, which has Steve - in order to free himself from the VR simulation The Order of the Harvest Moon have trapped him, sadly becoming the Complete Monster himself in the process - despining Stephanie, with the latter wearing only lingerie at the time. Needless to say, that wasn't a pretty sight.
  • Left 4 Dead 2 features a recurring character dressed in a tight tank top, shorts, and a highly visible pink thong. This is a horribly mutilated zombie that shoots acid from her corroded, torn open mouth?
    • Not to mention the Witch, who is wearing a tank top and some undies. She also looks like a 50-year-old crack whore with claws and has a scream that will make you jump out of your skin.
  • Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines have the Nosferatu, hideously mutated vampires with a predilection towards overly tight S&M style gear. The ugliest, most horrifying representations of the undead show the most skin. It's like a paradox for your libido, except instead of you being confused you're just horrified beyond belief.
    • Also, the female Malkavian PC. Hot goth chick in stripper outfit. Fan Service. Hot GIGGLING goth chick in stripper outfit bashing people through walls with a sledgehammer while on fire? Nightmare Fuel.
  • Clotho, from God of War II. She's completely nude. The catch: she's an Eldritch Abomination and something between a Hutt and a baby blue Whale. Also, she has multiple boobs. And by "multiple" we mean "several dozen dotted all over her grotesque body".
  • Bayonetta: Joy's introduction and execution. The execution in particular is borderline misogynistic, since it basically boils down to the protagonist engaging in bondage-flavored rape of another woman to her death on a spiked sawhorse in a game that's otherwise goofy and tongue-in-cheek. Major Squick. Given the guy behind the game, it may be intentional.
  • Overlord II has this. Unfortunately. The priestesses of the Mother Goddess? They're just hugely fat. Try looking at the mermaids or fairies, who are not just fat, but ancient, withered, liver-spot-ridden old hags.
  • That picture is from Grand Theft Auto IV the Lost And Damned, where at one point Johnny has to meet with Thomas Stubbs while he is getting a massage at a club. Johnny's reaction is the same as the audiences.
  • Six Days a Sacrifice infamously failed at this - two leading characters who'd lost most of their hope for survival proceeded to hop into bed with each other, in what Word of God says was supposed to be representative of their descent into near-savagery. This was widely assumed to be badly done Fan Service.
  • Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days features a level with the main characters, two strong, rugged, manly Nineties Anti Heroes running around naked in the rain. Of course, they're both grizzled, middle-aged, and fall somewhat short of the Heroic Build. Also, both of them are covered in freshly-opened gashes.
  • Resonance of Fate features the Naked outfits, which look like standard fanservice-y bathing suit outfits, but fall squarely into the Uncanny Valley. Then you realize that the characters are in fact fully dressed, but in skin-colored and skin-patterned clothes. Bonus points for one of the male characters having a thong bikini pattern.
  • Dantes Inferno lives off this trope - possibly for intended effect, as the majority of nude imagery the player will experience throughout the game are the denizens of the levels of hell, most specifically Lust and Gluttony. A prime example of this trope however occurs in a scene where Dante's wife Beatrice is brutally murdered. During the assault, her dress is torn open, exposing one breast.
  • Dragon Age shows a lot of people in their underwear and that's just fine, but plays this trope dead-straight with The Broodmother. For anyone who doesn't know, she's a fully naked woman with many boobs...who's disfigured and morbidly obese to the point that she's just a pink blob. And oh yeah, she has tentacles. And she fondles one of her breasts. And she used to be a normal female dwarf, before she was gang-raped, force-fed the flesh of her family members and of poisonous monsters, and transformed into a horrible thing that gives birth to thousands of darkspawn. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to find my Brain Bleach....
    • Another contender from Dragon Age would be the human Broodmother who serves as the prime antagonist in Awakening. The Broodmother from Origins shrieks and snarls, and looks very different from the species she once was. Not so with the Mother, who still has a distinctly human face and can speak coherently, implying a sense of self that is just brimming with Fridge Horror. Imagine regaining your sentience only to find yourself looking like THAT! Also, the shape of her body is reminiscent of a caterpillar. *Shudder*
  • Persona 4 is a game drenched in confused and conflicted teenage sexuality. The results are as to be expected.
    • Most notably, Shadow Rise. It's already disturbing to watch an underaged girl (at least in the USA, the legal age in Japan is lower) with creepy Eyes of Gold in an equally golden bikini threaten to strip in front of her television audience, as the real Rise insists this isn't her while in tears, but the horror hits critical mass during the boss fight itself, where she transforms into a rainbow-colored giant with a censor mosaic for a face and attacks by humping a stripper pole with now infamous squishing noises. There's also a good deal of Fridge Horror with the original Rise not only unwilling to do this, due to her backstory, but mentioning her shadow's bust is bigger than hers.
    • Shadow Chie. She turns Chie's feelings of inadequacy compared to her best friend Yukiko into some kind of cross between a dominatrix and an executioner, piggybacking on a tower of schoolgirls that she drives with a whip.
    • Shadow Yukiko it NOT free of this either. Tall, Dark and Bishoujo girl in a pink Pimped-Out Dress? A-okay. Tall, Dark and Bishoujo girl in a pink Pimped-Out Dress who curses and complains about how useless she feels and how she relies on everyone else, while the real Yukiko pleads her to stop? Not okay. Naked phoenix woman with red feathers and a white heart-shaped mark in the middle of her bare chest, riding a huge chandelier? Brain bleach, GIMME!
    • In retrospect, all of this becomes worse when you learn that the culprit was Tohru Adachi, a man in his mid-to-late 20's, who tried to rape the first two murder victims, one of them not much older than the main characters.
    • Hanako, BEAUTY PAGEANT, skimpiest bikini ever! Brain Bleach, please.
  • Dead Rising gives us Jo the Cop on the un-infected side, and about a million unfortunately-dressed female zombies from the infected.
  • In Shadows of the Damned, whenever Paula shows up, she's usually half-naked. Unfortunately, she also spends most of the game getting brutally killed and resurrected by the Big Bad.
  • In Kara no Shoujo more than once you get to see pretty naked girls, just like you'd expect. Sounds good until the bit where they get their limbs hacked off, their heads twisted around or their eyes slashed, doesn't it?
  • Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean has Geldoblame's One-Winged Angel form, which is basically a giant torso, with tentacles for legs, malformed wings, one giant deformed arm, and huge man boobs. Eeeuuuugghh.
  • You are Empty starts you off fighting nurses. Sexy nurses with long legs, miniskirts, and cleavage. Never you mind their slightly damaged faces...
  • Meryl's breasts in Policenauts. If you can beat her high score on the shooting range she'll let you grope them, but they make a sound like elephants or tigers (rather than the usual boob-grope reverse-onomatopoeia you would expect) and Jonathan is alarmed by how they feel. Played for Laughs.
  • Katawa Shoujo has a couple of examples. It should be noticed that it's generally less about the girls's physical disabilities, and more about the emotional turmoil and very sad/troubled circumstances.
  • Think Mass Effect's asari are hot? Want to see one naked? Mass Effect 3 grants your wish - in the form of the Banshee, the asari husk, complete with uncovered breasts. And then there's their cries, which are exactly what you'd expect something to call a Banshee to sound like.
    • There's also shirtless Kaidan, which under most circumstances would be something a particular set of fans would like, but not when he's shirtless because he's lying in a hospital bed with a horribly bruised face because he almost got killed.
  • Few games have more buxom women in bikinis than Dead Island. Too bad that most of them are zombies whose heads you have to bash in.
  • Street Fighter IV gives us Seth's Shower Scene in his animated intro. Him being a Creator's Pet and the Big Bad isn't what makes this a disservice, but his metallic skin tone and how he is, well, waaaaaay too muscled for some fans's comfort. (Unless you are into that, eh.)
    • Juri Han is a very beautiful Dark Action Girl who appeals a lot to Creepy Sexy and Evil Is Sexy, but one of her Ultras is the incarnation of this trope. Namely she kicks the fuck outta her rival, then kicks him/her into the air and, before they land, she uses a spinning back kick to his/her back to stop their fall. Then, with the dizzy-looking rival still lifted on her leg, she cruelly caresses his/her upside-down face (just like it's pictured above) before finishing them off with one last axe kick.
  • The Monster Girl Quest is nominally a porn game, but the titular monster girls are just so against anyone's idea of sexy, that it's hard to classify it as that. Anyone here turned on by being raped by a giant scorpion with breasts? Didn't think so. Luckily, the story and writing more than makes up for all the Squick.
  • Elena's dress often slips down on one side, more than far enough to reveal a breast. Or it would, if the reason for it wasn't that side of her body becoming severely mutated, looking like it's rotting in places and oozing purple gunk everywhere.
    • Something to note is the dress isn't magical and remains displaced as the curse is suppressed, though she immediately falls into Aeron's arms, preventing the audience from seeing anything. By the time she wakes up, he's fixed it for her.
  • Dark Souls has a bit of this. Try stripping off your clothes/armour whilst Hollow. Go on. I won't judge you. Heck if you're a bit uncomfortable about scantily dressed dudes, male armor is a loincloth thong, where as female characters have briefs.
    • There is also Quelaag and her sister, two beautiful women with horrible demonic lava spiders for asses.
