** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' has two examples in Yuna & Rikku. In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', Rikku wears a vest & hotpants, but trades that for a thong[=/=]bikini miniskirt combo in the sequel. In fact, her X-2 costume is the image on the DangerouslyShortSkirt page. Yuna, on the other hand, goes from a conservatively dressed (Albeit with black bra showing) summoner, to hot pants & an AbsoluteCleavage baring halter top complete with the Zanarkand Abes logo hanging there.

** Serah Farron from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' & ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 XIII-2]]''. In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' Serah spends most of the game as a crystal (it's a long story) & whilst clearly designed to be cute, doesn't really wear anything more revealing than a Type A ZettaiRyouiki -- actually making her the most conservatively dressed of the major characters. Come [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 the sequel]]; and Serah's now wearing a very tight & very short dress, still rocking the ZettaiRyouiki, and has, depending on your interpretation, either [[HiddenBuxom started showing off her cleavage]] or has "developed" since the first game.

* Connie from ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' goes from a chubby, but sweet-natured girl in the Nickelodeon series, to much slimmer, more assertive, and wearing more flattering clothes in the Disney series. She explained that she went to camp over the summer where she lost weight. Doug didn't even recognize her when he saw her.

** Rare male example, two in fact: [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Red and Blue]] were initially considered rather attractive by fans already, but some years down the in-universe timeline they appear again in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' as young adults... And let's just say puberty was very kind on then. Red has sharper features and has clearly gained a few pounds in muscle, and Blue has gotten even more Bishounen.

* The angels in the Bible were never depicted the way they were illustrated by Renaissance artists: resembling fair-faced humans with fluffy white wings, illuminated in a golden penumbra and occasionally baring a breast. The now-accepted image of an angel is OlderThanPrint yet NewerThanTheyThink. While angels are barely described in the Bible, it's implied that when visible to mortals they have an awe-inspiring but somewhat fearsome appearance. None of Adam's descendants ''dare'' to return to Eden once it is angel-guarded, and the first words of the Messenger to the three wise men are "Fear not!" The Apocrypha ascribe some StarfishAlien appearances to angels (albeit with an emphasis on feathery wings) and number Death as one of the angelic host -- probably the only one who has never been re-interpreted as a vapid blonde in a glowing nightgown.

* Creator/{{Nintendo}} redesigned Tiny Kong from the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' game series in this fashion. Originally, in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'', she was essentially a toddler with long twin ponytails, as she is the ''younger'' sister to Dixie Kong. In the [[NintendoDS DS]] [[UpdatedRerelease remake]] of ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing'', she's suddenly a teenager and sports a tank top and some baby blue pants; essentially an alteration of her original attire. This "age-up" is unexplained and she's still supposed to be Dixie's younger sister even though she now looks noticeably older - not just taller, ala Luigi of the Franchise/SuperMarioBros - than Dixie (who still mostly resembles a [[TertiarySexualCharacteristics female version of Diddy Kong with blonde hair]]) .

** Inverted in one case - ChainmailBikini-wearing Sejuani got almost entirely covered and now wears a BreastPlate.
* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicles'' Claire's redesign for the retread through 2 gave her a cup size, tightened her shirt and gave her a more plump buttocks. The developer actually admitted to doing this.

* ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'':
** Jessica Drew, as Spider-Woman, was drawn with a modest bust size and even mocked by Bombshell as a gender-flipped Spider-Man with a B-cup. As Black Widow, she's usually drawn as being ''much'' more buxom, though that might be on account of her aging from 15 to 17.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Winry subtly... gets bigger. Fully justified in that she's a developing teenage girl and the series spans at least a whole year.
** Ed also gets taller and more broad shouldered as the series progresses, gradually going from 4'11 to 5'5.. Winry actually takes notice at one point.
* Motoko Kusanagi seems to have had a breast-size-upgrade between The first season of ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' and ''[=SAC: 2nd GiG=]''. She also started to wear pants, around the same time, so this goes both ways. She gets a new body near the end of the first season. It's the same body model that she was using before, and she mentions that because she's working for the government, it has modified specifications well beyond standard legal limits. This basically means that she actually gave ''herself'' a FanServicePack. Her roommate Kurtan is sexually aroused by this.
** Also on meta level, her appearance in [[MamoruOshii Mamoru Oshii's]] movie her appearance was heavily built and utilitarian with almost masculine facial features and her personality is cold and asexual. ''Stand Alone Complex'' gave her a sense of humour and occasional flirty moments, although this is in fact closer to characterisation in [[MasamuneShirow Masamune Shirow's]] original manga.

She mostly remained this way after he left, save for when Eduardo Barretto drew her. After her resurrection in volume 3, she was revamped as being more conventionally attractive, although that also meant giving her [[MostCommonSuperpower much larger breasts]].
* Sally Acorn from ''Comicbook/SonicTheHedgehog'' and ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic''. At first in ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'', she was not that hot at all. She was only slightly feminine in the Archie comic at first. Then the new artist changed the character design, making her far more feminine.
* Betty Brant from ''Comicbook/SpiderMan'' started out as J. Jonah Jameson's mousy, timid secretary, with a tight, short, curly hairstyle, high necklines and loose skirts. However, as the series went on, she became more outgoing and more aggressive, and grew her hair out into a long, sleek bob, and eventually became a tough reporter who wore skimpy necklines and skintight dresses with high heeled boots.

* Gabrielle on ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' managed to wear less and less clothing as the series went on. She started in a ankle length skirt and poofy sleeves and ended in a miniskirt and what is essentially a bra. Granted, her initial outfit would be cumbersome and inhibiting in combat, so it makes sense that she trimmed it down a ''little'' for better freedom of movement, but the show pushed it to an extreme. Xena, remarkably, maintained the same basic level of coverage. Which took her from being pretty exposed to relatively modest when compared to her sidekick.
** Even more interesting is that Gabrielle's short hairstyle later on is ''completely logical'' for a warrior that regularly engages in melee combat, as long hair is considered an easy handhold and thus a liability. Unrealistically, Xena, the more experienced and skilled fighter of the two, keeps her long, flowing hair throughout the entire series.

Considering all that, Blizzard probably decided it wasn't worth the trouble to make a unique character model for her at the time. Then the first expansion came, which included a few more High Elves and updated their appearances but Sylvanas was still the only undead one, which might be why she was left with the appearance of a Night Elf. In the second expansion, though, she was getting more time in the main story, so keeping her as a Night Elf would have been really glaring.
** Prior to the first ExpansionPack, all High Elves used recolored (and ugly-as-hell) Night Elf models. Some still do.
* Sarah Kerrigan received an almost complete makeover in ''VideoGame/StarcraftII''. While she was by no means unattractive in the first game, her overall look was [[http://images.wikia.com/starcraft/images/8/8a/SarahKerrigan_SC1_Cncpt1.jpg more utilitarian]], especially as a ghost.

Sylvanas Windrunner's original model in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' was not only incorrect to what she was (millions of players who either didn't [[AllThereInTheManual read the manual]] or play ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' were left thinking she were a Night Elf instead of a High Elf), but not particularly sexy. "We can't have this on our undead elf DarkActionGirl", said Creator/BlizzardEntertainment and changed her for the better. Now she looks much closer to her ''Warcraft III'' [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20081005143430/wowwiki/images/e/e9/SylvanasWar3UD.JPG model.]]

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, Nocturnal, the Daedric Prince of night and darkness, was depicted as a simple woman in a hood and a cloak covering her entirely in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]''. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', her statue wears a cloak that barely covers her legs, completely exposing the thighs, while the top [[AbsoluteCleavage reveals her cleavage down to her belly]] (her appearance in ''Daggerfall'' exposed her legs in a similar way, but there was not a hint of cleavage to be found).

* [=CPUs=] in the ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'' series almost all undergo a level of this when transforming. It goes from subtle (Noire just smiles more and shows more or less the same amount of skin) to overt (Neptune puts on about four years and at least as many cup sizes) to Plutia (who goes from an adorable girl who wears her fluffy bunny slippers everywhere to {{Dominatrix}} sex goddess). Considering the girls are all personifications of various game consoles, [[JustForPun the trope name can be taken literally]].

* Zuko in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. In the first season, he has his hair in a military style that makes the [[FacialHorror huge burn scar covering half his face]] stand out starkly. As a result, his ExpositoryHairstyleChange after some CharacterDevelopment ''massively'' improves his looks. Fangirls are pleased.

* In the first two seasons of ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'', the animation studio was rather limited on how much of Dot Matrix was shown - both due to technological limitations and ExecutiveMeddling on the part of the ABC network.

* Inverted with [[YoungAvengers Kate]] [[ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} Bishop]]. When first introduced she was drawn as the more mature looking of the two female characters (the other being a 14 year old girl, while she looked about 18/19), and her superhero outfit consisted of dark leather pants and a small, one-sleeved shirt that left her stomach and a right side of her upper torso mostly exposed, and for the most part she was the MsFanservice of the team. However, during ''ComicBook/MarvelNOW'', when she partnered with Clint Barton, she received a new costume that, while still relatively skin-tight, covered her torso completely and only left her hips and right arm exposed, while she was drawn with a more petite frame (to make things weirder, her earlier appearances had her with an AmbiguousAge but a good chance of her being underage and was a student, while her recent appearances have now confirmed her as being in her early twenties). Her casual wear now still remains lightly fanservicey, but no more so than any young woman her age.
