Nudity in combat is the practice of entering combat without clothing and armor. It is rarely practiced because, apart from the social aspects of nudity, the combatant lacks even the basic protection of clothes, e.g. when diving for cover, or crawling. Also the combatant misses the practicality of hiding/carrying objects in pockets and attached to clothes. The artistic convention of heroic nudity, however, was established in the art of ancient Greece by the Archaic period.
Sometimes the soldiers wore no clothing but were covered in war paint, a custom that allegedly gave the Picts their name.
