* In AgeOfMythology, a few of the gods (notably Ares and Dionysus) who were traditionally youthful and handsome inexplicably appear old and grey. Also, a minor inversion with the Greek heroine Atalanta: in classical vase paintings she was MsFanservice and was commonly depicted wearing [[DangerouslyShortSkirt tiny hunting dresses]] and skimpy bikinis (lest you think the trend of [[OlderThanYouThink dressing heroines in impractical reveling outfits is a new thing]]). The game's version of Atalanta, while [[MostCommonSuperPower well-endowed]], is dressed much more conservatively.

* In her previous screen appearances, Peter Parker's Aunt May was motherly old woman familiar from ''SpiderMan'' comics and cartoons. In ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' she's played by Creator/MarisaTomei. Admittedly, it's plausible that Marisa (born in 1964) could play the aunt of a teenage boy (or a guy in his early twenties like Tom Holland). However, there aren't many viewers who imagined that the that word "hot" could ever be used to describe the former May Reilly.

* In the comic ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and Cleopatra'', Cleopatra is extremely attractive but has a GagNose which other characters constantly make backhanded compliments on, and her ostentatiousness is expressed through what she surrounds herself with. In the film adaptation she is played by Monica Belluci in just the most impossibly {{Gorgeous Period Dress}}es ever.

* In ''Literature/OliverTwist'', Nancy is described as "not exactly pretty, perhaps," and was portrayed in George Cruikshank's original illustrations as very plain and heavyset. Most of the actresses who've played her in the various screen adaptations - Kay Walsh, Shani Wallis, Leanne Rowe, Sophie Okonedo, and others are much more conventionally attractive, as are most who play the role in the stage musical ''Theatre/{{Oliver!}}''
