Hello, Nurse!

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Helloooo, Trope Namer!

This woman is sex on legs, and everything about her screams Schwiiinnng!. She may or may not know it, but when she walks past, everyone takes leave of their senses and devolves into a steaming mass of drool, totally consumed by Lust.

In a funny cartoon, expect steam to shoot from their ears, their hearts beating so fast you can see them. For other shows, the leads will stutter and sweat; any charm they once had will dissolve in her presence.

She may be a sympathetic character, who is tired of being treated differently because of her appearance. She could be a ball-buster who uses her skills to seduce her way to whatever she wants. She might be smart as a whip or dumb as a post. Either way, she will probably only be a Flat Character. (No, not that way.)

Of course, the only person she wouldn't mind drooling over her will most likely be a Chaste Hero.

The name comes from the Animaniacs character above, who herself was named after a classic Vaudeville gag where an attractive, voluptuous woman in a nurse's uniform would walk across the stage, causing the guys present to call out: "Helloooo, nurse!" This Catch Phrase eventually extended to all the show's attractive women—and, for Dot, men. (Interestingly enough, the nurse's name actually was Hello Nurse.)

Compare with Ms. Fanservice, who's meant to provoke the same reactions in the audience, rather than other characters (there's considerable overlap, though). See Chick Magnet and Even the Guys Want Him for the male version. Make straight females fall for her as hard as the straight boys, and she'll be a case of Even the Girls Want Her.

When she's actually a nurse, it's Hospital Hottie. If she just dresses like one, it's Naughty Nurse Outfit.

Dial this trope Up to Eleven, and you have the World's Most Beautiful Woman. Compare to Eating the Eye Candy.

Examples of Hello, Nurse! include:


  • The Cadbury's Caramel Bunny ads back during the 1980s pretty much involved every single male animal fawning over her whilst she promoted chocolate. Adding to that, in a 2009 UK-based poll she was even voted the 3rd sexiest cartoon character of all time, just behind Betty Boop and Jessica Rabbit.

Anime and Manga

  • Urusei Yatsura has Sakura, the school nurse/local priestess.
  • Kenta's mother, Fumio, in Karin is the sympathetic variety. Her attractiveness means that she can never hold down a job for fear of sexual harassment, and she is so stressed that it's turning her into a wreck.
  • Asuka Tenjouin of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, which she has never been happy about. In fact, in the manga version, she practically had to be dragged to a beauty pageant to compete for a title she had been nominated for.
  • Nurse Harumi from Irresponsible Captain Tylor. The marines in particular seem to worship her like a goddess.
  • Ran from Super GALS!!, although it seems like the guy's reaction to her is partially because of her fiery personality and knowledge of the "gal" subculture. The only guy who doesn't seem to be (immediately) affected by her is Rei, who constantly warns his head-over-heels friend Yuya that "she's trouble." (Although the "trouble" is referring more to her hot temper than her being a Femme Fatale—in fact, she constantly rebuffs guys that want to sleep with her and is a proud virgin.) At one point in the series almost all the guys in Shibuya hold a contest for who gets to have the right to be her boyfriend. She happily claims the one who wins and breaks the hearts of all the other boys. ...Yes, in case you're wondering, she is a bit of a Canon Sue.
  • Mikado-sensei from To LOVE-Ru. A fan of stockings that uses her charm with the perverted principal and to mess with Rito (skinship anyone?). It doesn't help that some of her machines requires one to be naked.
  • Cool Big Sis Dr. Yamaguchi from Hajime no Ippo is a Hello Doctor case. She's a friendly and cheerful young doctor who has her own clinic, and the fact that she often wears very short miniskirts and possesses huge breasts do the rest. (Oh, and Yamaguchi's so Married to the Job that she completely fails to notice her effect on Ippo's sempais).
    • Actually, she has that effect on Ippo too.
  • Washu of Tenchi Muyo! dresses up as this For Science!. No, really!
    • Ryoko frequently tries to be this, but because it's Tenchi we're talking about... No dice. Ayeka too, though in a more stilted, proud way.
  • A minor character from Yu Yu Hakusho called Ruka fulfills this trope.
  • In the anime/manga Dragon Ball, during the 21st World Tournament, the third match pits a woman named Ran Fuan against a tall monk-like fellow in a turban named Namu. Ran Fuan isn't a terrible fighter, but Namu is just that much better, and one of the cards that she plays to try to throw him off his guard is to seduce him in the middle of the fight by putting on a Hello Nurse act and taking off... A couple articles of clothing. Namu's solution? He closes his eyes.
  • Yayoi Sanzenin, the school nurse in Happy Lesson, always has a queue of male students waiting outside her office. As a result, she has a policy of seeing female patients first.
  • In Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, this role is fulfilled by Hideyoshi Kinoshita. It's funny because he's a guy.
  • Yukariko Sternberg of Mai-Otome had this effect on some men. Since Otomes must abstain from sex or lose their powers, this led to her canceling her contracts and eventually becoming a teacher at Garderobe.
  • Tae Anegasaki of School Rumble
  • Ranma Saotome of Ranma ½ is a hot genderbender. Men who don't know that he's a genderbender ogle at his girl form, those who do know still ogle at his girl form, many ask for a date, some propose marraige, some kidnap him in order to forcefully propose marraige, and etcetera. It doesn't hurt that he provides at least 80 percent of the Fan Service for the show either.
  • Aki, the school nurse in Maken-ki!. Bonus points for having a penchant to use her special powers for magical Intimate Healing.
  • Rosario + Vampire: All the guys constantly Lust after the beautiful Moka Akashiya and the succubus Kurumu (or, more rather, her big breasts). Too bad they're in love with someone else.

Comic Books

  • Elizabeth Chandra (who later drops her first name) from J. Michael Straczynski's Rising Stars had the power to be the most attractive girl possible to any man — later, when her power increases, it even works on women too.
    • The real tragedy of her power was that with the exception of something like a few others from the Specials, no one ever saw her. They just saw 'the most beautiful woman on Earth.' It's like looking at a tree, and just seeing the tree, not the branches, leaves, and texture of the bark that make it up. She and the guy who had the supposed invulnerability had been Blessed with Suck.
  • The Spirit: P'Gell. The first story featuring her had her warning its readers on the first page (spread out over a couch in a jaw-dropping red dress) that "this is not a story for little boys!"
  • For Melody of Josie and the Pussycats, the Running Gag is that she causes this reaction wherever she goes, and is too naive/dumb to notice.
  • Power Girl fills (and overfills) this role in the DCU.
    • In a JSA/JLA crossover featuring the personifications of the Seven Deadly Sins taking over the bodies of heroes, guess who ended up being taken over by Lust?
    • Harley Quinn.
    • Starfire, Black Canary and Huntress all tend to elicit similar reactions.
    • Poison Ivy is perhaps the biggest one here, as one of her actual abilities is to secrete pheromones that make everyone around her feel this way.
      • Catwoman would perhaps also apply, as whilst being Batman's love interest at the same time, The Riddler once described even Ivy as having a thing for her.
  • The character of Emma Frost, from the Marvel Universe, has had certain days, where her every action, word, movement and gesture seemed intended to elicit a certain reaction from the all the men around her. Then they changed her.
  • Spider-Man: "Face it Tiger, you just hit the jackpot!" - You sure did Mr. Parker. You sure did.
  • There is actually a comic with the trope namer as the protagonist; Hello Nurse takes down ninjas and other evil dudes with her amazing fighting skills. It's about as awesome as you can imagine.


  • Cassandra from Wayne's World.
  • Jerri (Jayne Mansfield) in The Girl Can't Help It. All she wants to be is a housewife, but men don't see her that way.
  • Ulla in Mel Brooks' The Producers. This Sexy Secretary doesn't even attempt to type, but can she ever work!
    • In the original movie at least, this is a slanderous lie. She does type, at the rate of about one letter a minute.
  • Stupefyin' Jones in the musical version of Li'l Abner, whose sex appeal is so devastating that she's classified as munitions.
  • The five Salma Hayeks in Across the Universe are as perfect of an example as you can get.
    • Oh, the Bang Bang Shoot Shoot Nurses? That's their actual name. I think somebody noted the connection at some point...
  • The Genterns from Repo! The Genetic Opera are this trope personified and given a cute visor.
  • Tina Carlyle in The Mask, reduces the civilian Jim Carrey to a gibbering wreck by asking to open a bank account, and causes his Masked alter ego to herniate his beating heart through his shirt and literally wolf-whistle.
  • Iaia the cookie seller from The Three Caballeros makes Donald Duck and José weak at the knees. They spend their entire trip to Bahia competing with each other (and a large crowd of men that show up) for her affections. In fact, about half the movie has Donald chasing after some Latin lady.
  • Every character Marilyn Monroe ever played.
  • In Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Janet Colgate makes her entrance as, well, this. Both con men go for her at once.... only for her to con them by the end of the movie.
  • From the second Toy Story movie, Buzz Lightyear and the gang are in Al's Toy Barn, where they stumble upon Tour Guide Barbie. Mr Potato Head immediately begins chanting that he is a "married spud", while Hamm tells him to step aside for the single fellas.
    • Invoked again by Toy Story 3, when Ken meets Molly's Barbie doll for the first time, accompanied by Gary Wright's "Dream Weaver".
  • The Saffron Burrows character in Enigma.
  • Rita Hayworth played these type of characters especially in Gilda and The Loves of Carmen.
  • Staff Nurse Dorothy Denton (Shirley Eaton) in Carry On Nurse. Eventually got her man, Ted York.
  • Molly in She's Out of My League personifies this trope—her introduction is one long slow-motion montage of her walking through an airport, catching the awed attention of every man (and teenage boy) she passes. When she gets to the TSA counter, the cynical and bored Stainer suddenly perks up. Later, when she meets Kirk's family, his mother squeals with glee and everyone else just stares.


  • Zoya, in House Of Meetings by Martin Amis. One character is sent to a gulag in Siberia because he is overheard praising America. In fact he was praising "The Americas"—the nickname he and his brother had given Zoya due to her hourglass figure.
  • Elli Quinn in Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga. After getting her face burned off in a battle, Miles paid for the finest reconstructive surgery for her that money could buy. Though initially delighted with the results, she later came to find it to be a problem at times, when soldiers under her command made passes at her, rather than following her orders.
  • Lara Raith from The Dresden Files is a succubus, has used her significant...ah...assets in the past to make a name for herself in "adult" movies (see Blood Rites), and is now the power behind the throne of the White Court.
  • Mia in The Dark Tower series, who is a slutty ball-buster but who does gain some sympathy right before her newborn spider-baby kills her and drinks her blood.
  • Harry Potter:
    • Veelas. A "cheerleading" squad of them can make a whole mega stadium of men go wild. And then they go One-Winged Angel...
    • Fleur Delacour, who—guess what?--is part Veela. Lucky Bill Weasley.
  • Dmitri in The Brothers Karamazov can't help but speak of Grushenka's "infernal curves" dancing about in his mind, driving him insane with lust.
  • Rhapsody in the Symphony of Ages series by Elizabeth Haydon. This was partly due to natural beauty, but mostly due to the fire magic from her journey through the center of the earth.
  • In War and Peace, Elena Kuragin, more often called Hélène (a name derived from—oh just guess!), is perhaps the most beautiful woman ever born. She's the sort of woman that makes grown men weep and young boys lock themselves in bathrooms.
  • Cloud of Sparrows by Takashi Matsuoka has Emily, a Christian missionary that comes to Japan fleeing from the men in her country who apparently considered her so irresistible that she almost got raped twice. It doesn't help that she's about to marry a bible thumping guy who can't help getting aroused every time she walks by.
  • Despite living in a country of extremely beautiful people, everyone still manages to think that Phedre is, well, most extremely beautiful of all.
  • Helen of Troy is the original one, and judging by her being played by Diane Kruger in Troy, she still measures up pretty well.
  • Lúthien. Everyone upon her path tried to claim her, including Morgoth.
    • Arwen, Lúthien's great-great-great-granddaughter, was also supposed to be her exact spitting-image.
  • Succubi in The Case Of The Toxic Spell Dump have this quality, obviously. When a bunch of them gathered to picket city hall in protest over Angel City's new anti-vice laws, they didn't bother to bring signs, because their "arguments" were self-evident.
  • Several can be found in the Wheel of Time series. Morgase and Elayne often tie men's tongues, as does Berelain (though it appears she'll be meeting her match in her "Man in White" in the next novel).
    • And remember Elayne's hated step-brother Galad, who's so beautiful that drooling Aes Sedai gather to watch him take off his shirt.
    • Let's not forget the nation whose women are known around the world for having this quality, and using it to their advantage in trade: Arad Doman.
    • The most potent example is Lanfear, however. She actually uses Illusion to tone down her beauty, and still trips up any man she talks to.
  • Juliet in Terry Pratchett's Unseen Academicals.
    • Also from Pratchett's Discworld, Sergeant Angua of the Watch. (Nobody dares to wolf-whistle at her ... especially during a full moon).
    • And the lovely Tawneee, a woman who was Miss April, May , and June in Girls, Giggles and Garters - a woman who has so intimidated men through her looks that the only boyfriend she can get is Corporal Nobby Nobbs of the Watch. Who later dumps her because she cannot cook.
  • Laurana in the Dragonlance series. The first time the Companions see her they are completely mesmerized and can do nothing but stare at her and babble on about how she is the most beautiful woman they have ever seen. Even Raistlin is affected by her beauty. Later on her Arch Enemy, Kitiara, can do nothing but bitterly complain about how everyone raves about Laurana's beauty.
  • Dejah Thoris, from John Carter of Mars, is referred to as "the incomparable Dejah Thoris" for a reason.
    • Her daughter Tara and granddaughter Llana share this trait. Multiple men are willing to ignore Tara's personality flaws because of her beauty, and one character who sees a figurine of Llana refuses to believe that it is of a real person, on the grounds that real women can't possibly be that beautiful.
  • Juliet the succubus in Mike Carey's Felix Castor series. No one should be able to do that to a man with no blood circulation...
  • Sansa Stark has this, although, in the Crapsack World she lives in, it usually manifests as a desire to rape/molest her. Her fiance, Joffrey, has her stripped in front of him and gropes her. Sandor Clegane alternates between lust and genuine affection for her and later tries to rape her. Her eventual husband Tyrion refrains from invoking Marital Rape License, but not for lack of desire. The mob at the bread riots tried to gang rape her, Marillion sexually harrassed and eventually tried to rape her, her adoptive brother Theon mentions wishing her father would marry her to him, and Littlefinger "rescues" her, semi-adopts her, and makes repeated advances on her. Oh, yeah, and throughout all this, she's 11-13 years old.

Live-Action TV

  • In Angel, this was any red-blooded human's reaction to Gwen Raiden's entrance.
  • Christa in Auf Wiedersehen, Pet.
  • Gloria "Ripples" Brancusi, RN, from Trapper John, M.D. is another sympathetic example.
  • In Mad Men: Joan Holloway (played by Christina Hendricks), the bitchy, seductive secretary with the unbelievable body, who turns out to be both extremely bright and pragmatic enough to realize that her intelligence is going to do her exactly no good at all in the giant boys' club where she works.
  • Bones: According to Booth, "There isn't a guy in this country who wouldn't want to have sex with Temperance Brennan, including half the gay men." Of course, it is Emily Deschanel.
  • That '70s Show: Jackie's mother, Pam, played by Brooke Shields. A particularly well-executed instance, in that the male characters react to her according to their individual personalities. When the Formans invite Pam and Bob over, Eric and Hyde dress up but coyly feign ignorance about her coming over; Red acts helpful to Pam while ignoring the other guests and even Kitty, and Kelso, in his usual style, bursts through the door shouting, "What's she wearing?"
  • The first season of M*A*S*H had Nurse Cutler, whom Hawkeye and Trapper went to ludicrous and sometimes life-threatening lengths to keep at the 4077.
  • Jennifer Marlowe, WKRP in Cincinnati's receptionist.
  • Will and Grace has Dr. Morty, played by Nicolette Sheridan. Grace mentions to Leo she is uncomfortable with him working with her. He responds that she's not his type, to which Grace immediately retorts, "Oh, please. She's everyone's type, hell, I'd do her."
  • The Saturday Night Live character "Shanna" played by Kristin Wiig makes fun of this trope. She's a voluptuous secretary who speaks in a breathy Marilyn Monroe-like voice and the men in her office drool over her until she attempts to do something sexily. Instead of it being sexy it ends up being gross and weird. All the men are put off by her increasingly disgusting traits except the boss who grows more and more infatuated with her.
  • Friends
  • While this isn't how she is normally perceived, Claire Bennet is hired by a comic book store for the obvious effect she will have on their clientele.
  • Nurse Goodbody on Hee Haw.
  • On Scrubs, we have Heather Locklear guest starring. Turk brings up a threeway ambition he's had for a while, and Carla doesn't mind the idea. Of course, she didn't realize he would actually ask Locklear.
  • NCIS has pulled a "Hello Nurse" a few times by putting the normally rough-and-tumble Ziva into a bikini or a backless, slinky dress. But it kicks it up a notch in the episode in which Abby dresses like Marilyn Monroe, or any episode in which Abby is shown wearing mainstream business attire.


  • Dorothy of Oz: Selluriah's Witch form tends to elicit this reaction from people. Indigo is pretty much the only male in the series to witness it and not melt into a puddle on the floor. Though it's implied that this is only because he's seen it so many times it no longer has a noticeable effect on him.


  • Nurse Rosetta, the title character of a song from Alice Cooper's From the Inside album.
  • Doctor Steel has "Nurses" (members of his Army of Toy Soldiers that dress in sexy nurse uniforms) attend him—both on stage and other public appearances and in several of his videos.
  • The song "Brain Damage", from Eminem's first commercial album The Slim Shady LP, gives us the line, "Teacher, teacher! Quick, I need a naked nurse!"
  • The music video for "As Good As I Once Was" by Toby Keith. The final scene sees Keith – playing a bar patron socked by a giant muscle man during a barroom brawl – in the back of an ambulance, tended to by a sexy female paramedic. Keith tries to pinch her behind before he ultimately passes out; the final moments of the video are seen from Keith's perspective, with the screen turning blurry before going black as he slowly loses consciousness, the medic the last thing he sees.

Newspaper Comics

Professional Wrestling

  • Pretty much any woman in Professional Wrestling who doesn't look like a man. Female managers and valets are known to take advantage of this by using their... assets to distract their client's opponents (and the refs), allowing their client to get the win.

Tabletop Games

  • Nymphs in Dungeons & Dragons are so beautiful that merely looking at them can make you go blind. Or in some editions, dead! Most women require an extra step.
  • You can play as one in the Old World of Darkness since Appearance is an attribute measured from 1 to 5. One means you're ugly, two you're OK and so on. But when you reach five in appearance it means that you're pretty damn HAWT.
    • And, though basic rules, in Vampire: The Masquerade, imply that you play a <7 generation vampire, if you somehow (diablerie) get past 8th you will be able to get to 6 to 10 in any attribute including appearance.
    • The Sidhe, from Changeling: The Dreaming get 2 free dots in Appearance which means that at least they are more beautiful than an average woman and at their full potential they are, virtually, beauty goddesses.
  • The New World of Darkness dropped the Appearance attribute, but, seemingly, replaced it with Presence which has a similar concept but it does not refer to your physical appearance but to your allure. They do have the Striking Looks merit however.


Video Games

  • Mai Shiranui from Fatal Fury, who pursues her best friend Andy Bogard relentlessly, despite him being a Chaste Hero.
  • Morrigan Aensland from Darkstalkers who, being a succubus, makes a living out of taking advantage of stupid men. Catgirl Felicia also qualifies from her Stripperific appearance and added that she's an exotic battle dancer from Vegas to boot.
  • Zevran's reaction to a female player character in Dragon Age suggests this.
    • Marjolaine has this effect on Leliana's male teammates in the opening of the DLC Leliana's Song. Partially justified by her training as a bard.
  • Sheena Fujibayashi from Tales of Symphonia, of the oblivious or unwilling to exploit it type (it is implied she is a virgin) -- in fact, she tends to get violently defensive whenever anyone (especially Zelos) starts mentioning her looks. True to trope, the only person whose attentions she wouldn't mind would be Lloyd's—who for the most part wouldn't know romance if it came along and struck him hard in the head.
    • To a lesser extent, Raine Sage, who has a fanclub in her hometown of Iselia.
  • Jennifer, Hypercompetent Sidekick of Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth! is sufficiently sexy enough to make the protagonist literally allergic to her
    • The sequel has Rozalin, who buffs the power of male units surrounding her.
    • Disgaea3 added Sapphire, who powers up male allies much like Rozalin, and Master Big Star, who can get an evility which lets him power up female allies.
  • In Fire Emblem, several ladies are very much loved and admired by males:
    • Genealogy of the Holy War: Ayra and Edain.
    • Fire Emblem (Blazing Sword): Priscilla, Louise, Isadora. And Lyndis was so hot that she may have inspired a lesbian crush (if you read Florina's supports that way).
    • The Sacred Stones: Princess Eirika
    • Path of Radiance: Every support conversation involving Nephenee or Lucia includes someone telling them how beautiful they are.
  • Honorable mention goes to Reina Mayuzumi from Trauma Center (more specifically, Under The Knife 2).
    • Sadly, her beauty was, in many ways, only skin deep. In fact, she turned into a crippled old lady once the GUILT she knowingly and willingly incubated in her body became active.
  • Litchi Faye-Ling from BlazBlue. On top of being a doctor/nurse, her assistant says everyone in Orient Town is crazy about her, and let's not even talk about how crazy Bang Shishigami is towards her. Well, judging on how she looks, who'd blame her? It helps that she's a genuinely nice person.
  • Krystal from the Star FOX series. When the protagonist, Fox McCloud sees her for the very first time, he is mesmerized by her beauty, needing a comms buzz from Peppy in order to pull him out of it. She later becomes part of the team, resulting in plenty of Unresolved Sexual Tension between her and Fox, with mixes of She Is Not My Girlfriend, Everyone Can See It and My Sensors Indicate You Want to Tap That.
  • As soon as Devil May Cry 4 came out, there was a pretty strong reaction to Gloria (the alternate persona of Trish for the story). The fact the game developers even titled her introduction scene (and the soundtrack music that goes with it) "The Voluptuous Gloria" drives this point even further.
  • Ellis has this reaction to Zoey in Left 4 Dead 2. Somewhat ironic in the beaten up Zoey had just come through the Zombie Apocalypse and wasn't exactly looking her best. But she was one of the only two women left in the world, so Ellis didn't have much to chose from. She was still pretty fucking gorgeous despite going through an apocalypse, though.
  • Mad Moxxi from Borderlands 2. Seriously, this woman is practically begging Rule 34 artists to draw her.

Visual Novels

Web Comics

Louisa Dem Five: I cause so many moral crises that the Slag Bah consider me a religion.

Web Original

  • Fey at the Super-Hero School Whateley Academy in the Whateley Universe. Not only possessed of the beauty of the Sidhe, but also having a Faerie glamour that (at the start of the series) she cannot turn off—though she later damps it down. Slightly.

Western Animation

  • Minerva Mink and Heloise "Hello Nurse" Nerz from Animaniacs, the source of the trope name. (Hello Nurse herself fills the role of Hospital Hottie as well, though she doesn't have a hospital to heat up.)[1]
    • A male nurse is also introduced at one point to get this reaction out of the Warner Sister, Dot, proving that this trope can indeed cross the gender barrier.
    • Minerva Mink is also a prime example of the cases in which the one guy who has the same effect on her that she has on men is completely uninterested.
  • Even the human characters in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? lust for the infamous Jessica Rabbit. She's not bad, she's -- oh, you know the rest.
    • Jessica actually played a nurse in the Disney short-film Tummy Trouble featuring Roger Rabbit and Baby Herman.
    • An odd case, since Roger is the one that other Toons consider a real catch.
  • The Tooth fairy in The Fairly OddParents.
  • One of the most famous animated examples is Tex Avery's "Red Hot Riding Hood".
    • The Mask recreates the nightclub scene nearly in full, complete with Looney Tunes effects. This is appropriate, since it is a 'live-action cartoon'.
  • I Am Weasel: Loulabelle - Weasel's assistant, whom usually dresses as a nurse. Her debut was in the season 2 episode, "I.R. Mommy".
  • Fifi LaFume from Tiny Toon Adventures would most likely fit this trope... if she weren't a skunk, with all the associated odor issues.
  • Eric Schwartz's made-on-the-Amiga Amy the Squirrel series of animated shorts (would be web-original, but they predate the web, having been made in The Eighties) is possibly an inspiration for Minerva Mink. Amy's still around in the Sabrina Online comic.
    • It can be seen here and was made in 1994
  • Panty from El Arca. A very busty, very curvy, Panther babe who is introduced in much the same way that Jessica Rabbit is and whose role in the story consists of seducing the Idiot Hero, so that the villain can take over. Oh and she is seen during the end musical number, dancing in a cage.
  • Huntress in Batman: The Brave and the Bold. She apparently fits this trope so well, that Blue Beetle can't stop drooling over her, even in the middle of combat. However, anytime he sees her in danger, it stirs him back into action.
  • Referenced in Moral Orel, when Principal Fakey says "Hello Nurse!" to his love interest, Nurse Bendy.
  • Six, from Tripping the Rift.
    • And, on one planet, T'Nuk (since the locals really like legs, and she's got four of them, "and no gag reflex"). She also claims to be considered this among her own species.
  • In South Park, Bebe gets this treatment for the episode "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society". By the end of the episode, the boys realize they can't let breasts control them.
  • Vanessa from Phineas and Ferb is an underaged, but good example - when shown next to Candace who's the same age, she comes off rather curvy. Especially if you take into account both Stacy's and Jenny's appearance, the only other recurring teenage girls in the show and very flat characters. Several guys in the show attempted to hit on Vanessa, Ferb has an obvious Precocious Crush on her, and she supposedly has a boyfriend, as lampshaded in "Dude, We're Getting The Band Back Together!".
    • Jeremy's cousin, Nicolette, was created this way solely to enhance her advantage over Candace.
  • Emma Frost from Wolverine and the X-Men has this reaction upon her introduction.
  • Smurfette in The Smurfs, after her magical makeover in the cartoon show, elicits this response in her fellow Smurfs. And in a single-page comic book gag, she actually became a nurse.
  • Betty Boop got this reaction in most of her cartoons before the Hays Code kicked in.
  1. According to Tom Ruegger, this was always her name from the start of production, and not a back-formation; additionally, "Nerz" is German for "Mink", suggesting she might be related to Minerva.
