    Concept »

    This describes when the player is able to interact directly with a character's body. While this is often meant to be erotic, there are cases where it has a non-sexual context within games.

    Short summary describing this concept.

    Distinct from animal petting, as the subject is generally humanoid.

    This ranges from patting a character's head to more lewd interactions like blowing up skirts.

    This element has become more common in games supporting additional control schemes like mouse, touch, motion and/or virtual reality support due to responsive feedback from the target characters rather than menus.

    As this is usually a novelty to contextualise characters and personalities, this form of petting often allows players to pan a camera around a character. Regardless, this skinship tends to have a series of responses based on how the character is touched or where even if limited to 2D illustrations.

    Concern revolving around the feature's suitability for western markets has led to select games like Fire Emblem Fates and DanMachi: Memoria Freese removing the feature outside of Japan.
