* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': {{Discussed}} in [[http://whateleyacademy.net/index.php/original-timeline/372-the-big-idea The Big Idea]] with Delta Spike:
--> Harlan had a brief flash of déjà vu, looking at Delta Spike. Then he realized that she was the picture of a Hollywood ‘Girl Scientist’, the one who’s supposed to be a drab little geek, but you know that the second that she takes off her glasses and lets her hair down, she’s absolutely gorgeous. Delta Spike had long glossy black hair that was tied up in a style that really didn’t suit her. She wore a pair of thick clunky-looking black frame glasses that couldn’t have done a better job of disguising her classic features if she’d designed them for just that task. Still, she smiled prettily enough.

A stock plot: an [HollywoodHomely ugly duckling]] goes off in private, [[TheGlassesGottaGo loses the glasses]], [[LettingHerHairDown takes down her hair]], [[MakeoverMontage maybe gets a little makeup and some nicer clothes]] and finally [[SheCleansUpNicely returns as a swan]].

** Though she wasn't trying to appeal to Zach. She was unhappy with how her glasses came out in pictures the band had taken. And even after Zach tells her she looks better with the glasses, she continues does occasionally wear the contacts afterward, and the subject is never dwelt on again. So really the subversion comes in by the show just ignoring the "makeover" baggage that usually shows up when a girl takes off her glasses.

** There's also The Oddish line in regards to Gloom, which is pretty much the least aesthetically pleasing. Evolving it into [[HulaAndLuaus Bellossom]] is nothing short of an {{ugly duckling}} story. Even Vileplume seems like more of a reversion to Oddish's cuteness.

It turns into the lovely [[http://s4.zerochan.net/Milotic.full.1140930.jpg Milotic]], believe it or not. Of course, this does come with a few UnfortunateImplications: prior to ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', you had to max out its Beauty stat with Pokéblocks or Poffins, which was impossible to achieve if your Feebas had the wrong Nature until ''[[VideoGameRemake Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]''. [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop That's right, kids, some people are just doomed from birth to be ugly forever.]] Generation V did add in an alternative method since the removal of Contests made the Beauty stat otherwise unnecessary: give it a pretty Prism Scale to hold, then trade it away to someone else.

** And, ironically, played straight with ''Marigold herself''. Her appearance issues mostly stem from [[HollywoodNerd bad hygiene and grooming]], and [[IAmNotPretty even worse self-esteem]]. When she does clean herself up, ''everyone'' is impressed.
