Often leads to a "My face! My beautiful face!" moment, should the villain be a [[LargeHam large enough ham]]. Expect them to go and [[HouseOfBrokenMirrors break every mirror they come across]].

Compare the more extensive and LaserGuidedKarma related KarmicTransformation, or even more generally, BalefulPolymorph. See also BrokenAngel, WhatHaveIBecome and EmergencyTransformation. Contrast GorgeousGorgon.

GorgeousGorgon. Very likely to happen to the VainSorceress, since it's her worst fear.

* "Baby" Jane Hudson in ''Film/WhatEverHappenedToBabyJane''. She freaks out when she happens to glance in the mirror when she's reliving her child star career and sees her ravaged, sagging, horribly made-up face staring back at her.

* ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' has Imalia, a [[LooksLikeOrlock Nosferatu]] vampire who used to be a supermodel. It's said that the Nosferatu clan like to do this to vain, beautiful people in order to BreakTheHaughty. The tabletop game calls them "Cleopatras" (after the villain from the movie ''Freaks'', due to her FateWorseThanDeath).
* ''JumpStartAdventures4thGradeHauntedIsland'' anyone? Look at Tiffany, the princess girl. She now looks like a warthog!

** Nor the fact that the incisions necessary to infuse Youma flesh into human bodies to make Claymores leave scars bad enough (not shown for quite a while in the manga, never in the anime) that, in her back story, Teresa used them to eliminate any ideas a gang of bandits had about raping her.

her. [[spoiler: They don't look bad for the first few seconds, until you realize that there is a [[WoundThatWillNotHeal deep and ''permanent'' incision]] where guts and blood can spill out, that starts at her chest ''and connects to her vagina'']].

* Played for comedy on an episode of ''TheSimpsons'' where Krusty the Clown temporarily loses Sideshow Mel as the co-host of his children's TV show and hires actor Luke Perry, who is his half-brother (don't think about it too much), as a replacement. In a big all-star special edition of the show intended to boost ratings, Krusty fires Luke out of a cannon that sends him shooting all the way across town. He crashes into the Kwik-E-Mart and smashes right through several dozen jars of battery acid; we don't see what happens to him immediately afterward, but we hear him screaming, "AAAH! MY FACE! MY VALUABLE FACE!" Interestingly, the next time we see him, the acid scarring has completely healed.
** Also in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Moe gets plastic surgery to look attractive, but then later a wall falls on him and he goes back to normal.

** The film adaptation ''tried'' to do this, but most critics felt that he merely became HollywoodHomely instead. He [[AdaptationalAttractiveness still gets to keep his six-pack abs]], and he looks more like a hardcore punk kid than anything else. Some viewers ([[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2011/2/28/ including]] [[Webcomic/PennyArcade Gabe and Tycho]]) even felt that he was ''more'' attractive and {{badass}}-looking in his "beast" form than he was in "[[{{Bishonen}} pretty-boy]]" mode.
