* Dave Davenport from ''{{Narbonic}}'' is a male example, starting off as very dumpy and unattractive before growing progressively more handsome as the comic progressed. For comparison, check out the left (earlier) and right (later) pictures in [[http://www.narbonic.com/cast.html Dave's official bio]]. This seems to be about equal parts ArtEvolution[[note]]encouraged in part by fan-art portraying Dave as a classic ActionHero, which amused the creator no end[[/note]] and CharacterDevelopment, as Dave starts taking better care of his appearance as he gains self-confidence and settles into his job as [[MadScientist Helen Narbon]]'s computer guy.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''VisualNovel/ZeroEscape'' series, Clover went from wearing an outfit that had a DangerouslyShortSkirt but was otherwise modest in ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' to wearing what can be best be described as a bikini top, short shorts, and go-go boots in ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward''.

Added DiffLines:

* In Franchise/{{Double Dragon}}, token female [[WhipItGood whip-wielding]] mook Linda has gotten steadily more fanservicey. In ''1'' she had bare shoulders and wore purple, but was otherwise barely recognizable as female. In ''2'' and most of the arcade versions she was a reasonably buxom but otherwise rather butch punk with a mohawk. She was then absent until the Super Nintendo version of ''Battletoads & Double Dragon'', where she was a busty blonde in a midriff shirt and camo. Then ''Neon'' turned her into a Main/{{Dominatrix}} and upgraded the fanservice to the point of parody.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Videogame/{{EverQuest}}'', Firiona Vie was blatant fanservice from the beginning, but around the ''Shadows of Luclin'' expansion they turned her top, formerly more or less a sports bra, into two pieces of cloth laced together. Years later Sony Online Entertainment decided to deliberately try and get away from their reputation of using fanservice to sell ''[=EverQuest=]'' and returned Firiona Vie to her original look.

* Otacon from ''Franchise/MetalGear'', who was upgraded from a standard ratty-looking nerd into an exceptionally lovely HollywoodNerd (probably to compensate for [[PlotRelevantAgeUp what happens to Snake]]). And Solid Snake himself. He was average-to-good-looking in the concept art for ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' and pretty ugly and middle-aged in ''VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake'', but in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' he was entirely redesigned and ended up completely ''smoking''.
* Ivy in the ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' keeps [[http://www.gamesradar.com/us/ps3/game/news/article.jsp?sectionId=1006&articleId=20070613124925139083&releaseId=20070613105150193045 getting bigger and bigger.]] The [[JigglePhysics magnitude and degrees of freedom]] ramp up with each release. The ''Soulcalibur'' gals in general tend to fall under this. [[BreastExpansion If their breasts don't get bigger]], [[{{Stripperiffic}} their default outfits get smaller.]] Ivy eventually hit her peak in IV, though, because V's outfit is actually ''less'' revealing. Apparently the developers realized if they made her even more {{Stripperific}} they probably couldn't hold onto their T rating.
* In ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', The Handmaiden starts out wearing a sensible white outfit that, while being a little tighter than would occur in reality, did cover her from head to toe. Challenge her to a duel, and she shows up in her underwear (Echani tradition dictates fighting duels in the nude, but the game is T-rated. Or rather, the Handmaiden ''claims'' Echani tradition dictates that. Atton, who while not Echani himself has some experience with their traditions, implies that that that kind of duel is ''supposed'' to wait until you're a bit more familiar with one another). Turn her to the Dark Side and she'll start going for a slightly goth-ish look as well, which works surprisingly well with her WhiteHairBlackHeart nature.
* The ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' module creating community has several ''literal'' fan service packs, especially the hacks that accompany ''VideoGame/ADanceWithRogues''.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'':
** Sylvanas Windrunner's original model 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.]]
** When ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' launched, there were only a few dozen High Elves in the game, all [=NPCs=], all of them were fishes out of water in their stories, and Sylvanas was the only undead one. 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.
* ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'':
** Sarah Kerrigan received an almost complete makeover. 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.
** In the second game, her ghost look was changed to look more like Nova, another female Ghost in the series. [[http://images.wikia.com/starcraft/images/9/9e/SarahKerrigan_SC2_Art1.jpg Her catsuit]] become more form-fitting and white, and her facial features became softer and more youthful.
** After her infestation, [[http://images.wikia.com/starcraft/images/6/66/InfestedSarahKerrigan_SC1_Art2.jpg she had sickly green skin]], glowing eyes, a distinctive dreadlock hairstyle, black carapace-like armor, and claw-tipped bone "wings". [[http://images.wikia.com/starcraft/images/b/b6/InfestedKerrigan_SC2_Art4.jpg Her infested form]] in the second game made her into a GorgeousGorgon, with a more form-fitting carapace that made her look almost nude and gave her [[CombatStilettos high heel-like]] protrusions on her feet.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Sabrina gets one in ''VideoGame/PokemonHeartGoldAndSoulSilver''. She used to wear a modest outfit. Now she wears a tank top that exposes her midriff.
** Elesa's outfit in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' was fanservice-y, but still covered most of her body. In the sequels, she has her midriff and most of her legs exposed.
** Rare male example, two in fact: [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Red and Blue]] were already considered rather attractive at [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver age 14]] by fans, 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 them. Red now has sharper features and has clearly gained a few pounds in muscle, and Blue has gotten even more {{Bishounen}} and sports a more relaxed look.
* Joanna Dark from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' went from looking like [[http://perfectdark.retropixel.net/pd/renders/jodark_pd_08.jpg this]] in the first game, to looking like [[http://perfectdark.retropixel.net/pdzero/renders/jodark_pdz_07_sm.jpg this]] in the second one. And the second game was a ''prequel''. Maybe she had them reduced for stealth purposes.
* ''Franchise/MegaMan'':
** Alia as of ''VideoGame/MegaManX 8''. She [[LettingHerHairDown let her hair down]], received an "upgrade" that gave her large breasts, [[OptionalPartyMember among]] [[TookALevelInBadass other]] [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap things...]]
** Doctor Orihime of ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce 2'' developed a ''[[GagBoobs much]]'' more prominent chest in ''Ryuusei no Rock Man Tribe'', TheAnimeOfTheGame. The show never exploited them, but ''sheesh''.

* Coco in the ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' games has been getting a mild form of this. Originally, she wore youthful overalls. Now she wears a T-shirt that exposes her midriff and jeans. Somewhat justified in that she is physically maturing.



* 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]]).
* Another literal, if mild, Fanservice Pack occurred in ''VideoGame/DungeonsAndDragonsOnline''. Standard garb for male and female characters is fully covering, but players can buy cosmetic "kits" that change the look, often displaying more skin. After a recent update, players discovered that familiar NPC hirelings had started wearing them as well.
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'':
** In the 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).
** Interestingly enough, Azura follows the exact opposite treatment. Her shrines represented her as topless in Morrowind and Oblivion (in ''Daggerfall'' she just plain ''was'' topless), but she is a lot more covered up in Skyrim.
* In ''FateExtra [[{{Interquel}} CCC]]'', the three playable servants are given alternate costumes to wear. While [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111208160434/typemoon/images/d/d0/SaberBride.png Saber's]] outfit is actually ''less'' fanservicey than her [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111125171318/typemoon/images/2/2a/Saber_%28Fate_Extra%29.png original one]], [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111208160435/typemoon/images/2/2a/ArcherCCC.png Archer]] and [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111208160434/typemoon/images/6/6c/CasterCCC.png Caster]] have no such luck.



* Irene Lew from ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'' [[spoiler: and ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'']], started out as a modestly attractive brunette in the original NES trilogy, then graduates into a tall, shapely, blonde ActionGirl with AbsoluteCleavage in the newer ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'' [[spoiler: and ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'']] games.
* When Nintendo was making ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', they were originally going to give Link a character design similar to the one in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening Link's Awakening]]''. [[http://iwataasks.nintendo.com/interviews/#/3ds/zelda-ocarina-of-time/1/7 Then the wife of the man in charge of the character designs, Yoshiaki Koizumi, asked if he could redesign him to be better looking.]] [[ThrowItIn He complied.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'':
** [=CPUs=] in the 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]].
** Uni actually reverses this; she loses some of her height, curves, and bust when she transforms, to the point where another character wonders aloud if she pads her more covering casual dress. (As with many CPU traits, this is a joke on the console she represents. Later, more powerful models of PSP were also slimmer.)
* From ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' 3 to Tekken 6, Julia Chang's outfit mainly involves a top with a body-hugging vest, combined with a very short denim skirt that provided lots of Panty Shots since her very first appearance. Her skimpiest one is her Tekken 4 outfit and of course, [[spoiler: as the luchadora Jaycee.]]

* Zero Suit Samus' redesign in the fourth ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' game changes her design from the one used in the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' (that ''Brawl'' used) to the one used in ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'', as well as adding high heels that also double as rocket boots. Her physical features were altered so that she [[http://www.ssbwiki.com/images/5/59/Zero_Suit_Samus_SSB4.png sports a more athletic build, but her breasts seem to have become somewhat larger]] compared to her ''Brawl'' [[http://www.ssbwiki.com/images/1/10/Zero_Suit_Samus_SSBB.jpg design]].
* A notable variation in VideoGame/RuneFactoryFrontier, occurring within the course of a single installment: romantic interest Eunice begins the game visibly overweight, but as part of her CharacterDevelopment, she can make a conscious decision to diet and slim down, to the point that she will [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration flat-out refuse sweets given to her as gifts]]. Doing so results in a physical appearance more in line with the series' typical character designs (slim and "cute"), and is the only way to see her in a swimsuit.

* In ''VideoGame/WarshipGirls'', Lexington's remodel exchanges her sailor blouse for a blazer without blouse that lets you see her bra.
* ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'':
** Amagi loses the all-concealing kimono, revealing skimpier attire, after getting remodelled.
** Isuzu becomes visibly bustier after her second remodel.
* ZigZagged with Lara Croft in the ''Franchise/TombRaider'' franchise. Lara's breasts seemed to have gotten larger and larger by ''VideoGame/TombRaiderIII'' and ''VideoGame/TombRaiderTheLastRevelation''. Once the franchise gotten a reboot, Lara's breasts, while still fairly large, were given much more realistic proportions. When ''VideoGame/TombRaider2013'' was being developed, the developers not only made Lara's breasts smaller, but they kept redesigning her over and over until people would look at Lara's face first instead of her breasts.

* In ''VideoGame/WarshipGirls'', Lexington's remodel exchanges ''Franchise/MegaMan'':
** Alia as of ''VideoGame/MegaManX 8''. She [[LettingHerHairDown let
her sailor blouse for a blazer without blouse hair down]], received an "upgrade" that lets you see gave her bra.
* ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'':
** Amagi loses the all-concealing kimono, revealing skimpier attire, after getting remodelled.
** Isuzu becomes visibly bustier after her second remodel.
* ZigZagged with Lara Croft in the ''Franchise/TombRaider'' franchise. Lara's breasts seemed to have gotten larger and larger by ''VideoGame/TombRaiderIII'' and ''VideoGame/TombRaiderTheLastRevelation''. Once the franchise gotten a reboot, Lara's
large breasts, while still fairly large, were given much [[OptionalPartyMember among]] [[TookALevelInBadass other]] [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap things...]]
** Doctor Orihime of ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce 2'' developed a ''[[GagBoobs much]]''
more realistic proportions. When ''VideoGame/TombRaider2013'' prominent chest in ''Ryuusei no Rock Man Tribe'', TheAnimeOfTheGame. The show never exploited them, but ''sheesh''.
* Otacon from ''Franchise/MetalGear'', who
was being developed, upgraded from a standard ratty-looking nerd into an exceptionally lovely HollywoodNerd (probably to compensate for [[PlotRelevantAgeUp what happens to Snake]]). And Solid Snake himself. He was average-to-good-looking in the developers not only made Lara's breasts smaller, concept art for ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' and pretty ugly and middle-aged in ''VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake'', but they kept redesigning in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' he was entirely redesigned and ended up completely ''smoking''.
* The ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' module creating community has several ''literal'' fan service packs, especially the hacks that accompany ''VideoGame/ADanceWithRogues''.
* Irene Lew from ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'' [[spoiler: and ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'']], started out as a modestly attractive brunette in the original NES trilogy, then graduates into a tall, shapely, blonde ActionGirl with AbsoluteCleavage in the newer ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'' [[spoiler: and ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'']] games.
* ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'':
** [=CPUs=] in the 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 over and over until people would look at Lara's face first instead 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]].
** Uni actually reverses this; she loses some
of her breasts.height, curves, and bust when she transforms, to the point where another character wonders aloud if she pads her more covering casual dress. (As with many CPU traits, this is a joke on the console she represents. Later, more powerful models of PSP were also slimmer.)


Added DiffLines:

* Joanna Dark from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' went from looking like [[http://perfectdark.retropixel.net/pd/renders/jodark_pd_08.jpg this]] in the first game, to looking like [[http://perfectdark.retropixel.net/pdzero/renders/jodark_pdz_07_sm.jpg this]] in the second one. And the second game was a ''prequel''. Maybe she had them reduced for stealth purposes.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Sabrina gets one in ''VideoGame/PokemonHeartGoldAndSoulSilver''. She used to wear a modest outfit. Now she wears a tank top that exposes her midriff.
** Elesa's outfit in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' was fanservice-y, but still covered most of her body. In the sequels, she has her midriff and most of her legs exposed.
** Rare male example, two in fact: [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Red and Blue]] were already considered rather attractive at [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver age 14]] by fans, 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 them. Red now has sharper features and has clearly gained a few pounds in muscle, and Blue has gotten even more {{Bishounen}} and sports a more relaxed look.
* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicles'' Claire's redesign for the retread through 2 gave her a cup size, tightened her shirt and gave her more plump buttocks. The developer actually admitted to doing this.
* A notable variation in VideoGame/RuneFactoryFrontier, occurring within the course of a single installment: romantic interest Eunice begins the game visibly overweight, but as part of her CharacterDevelopment, she can make a conscious decision to diet and slim down, to the point that she will [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration flat-out refuse sweets given to her as gifts]]. Doing so results in a physical appearance more in line with the series' typical character designs (slim and "cute"), and is the only way to see her in a swimsuit.
* Ivy in the ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' keeps [[http://www.gamesradar.com/us/ps3/game/news/article.jsp?sectionId=1006&articleId=20070613124925139083&releaseId=20070613105150193045 getting bigger and bigger.]] The [[JigglePhysics magnitude and degrees of freedom]] ramp up with each release. The ''Soulcalibur'' gals in general tend to fall under this. [[BreastExpansion If their breasts don't get bigger]], [[{{Stripperiffic}} their default outfits get smaller.]] Ivy eventually hit her peak in IV, though, because V's outfit is actually ''less'' revealing. Apparently the developers realized if they made her even more {{Stripperific}} they probably couldn't hold onto their T rating.
* ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'':
** Sarah Kerrigan received an almost complete makeover. 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.
** In the second game, her ghost look was changed to look more like Nova, another female Ghost in the series. [[http://images.wikia.com/starcraft/images/9/9e/SarahKerrigan_SC2_Art1.jpg Her catsuit]] become more form-fitting and white, and her facial features became softer and more youthful.
** After her infestation, [[http://images.wikia.com/starcraft/images/6/66/InfestedSarahKerrigan_SC1_Art2.jpg she had sickly green skin]], glowing eyes, a distinctive dreadlock hairstyle, black carapace-like armor, and claw-tipped bone "wings". [[http://images.wikia.com/starcraft/images/b/b6/InfestedKerrigan_SC2_Art4.jpg Her infested form]] in the second game made her into a GorgeousGorgon, with a more form-fitting carapace that made her look almost nude and gave her [[CombatStilettos high heel-like]] protrusions on her feet.
* Zero Suit Samus' redesign in the fourth ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' game changes her design from the one used in the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' (that ''Brawl'' used) to the one used in ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'', as well as adding high heels that also double as rocket boots. Her physical features were altered so that she [[http://www.ssbwiki.com/images/5/59/Zero_Suit_Samus_SSB4.png sports a more athletic build, but her breasts seem to have become somewhat larger]] compared to her ''Brawl'' [[http://www.ssbwiki.com/images/1/10/Zero_Suit_Samus_SSBB.jpg design]].
* From ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' 3 to Tekken 6, Julia Chang's outfit mainly involves a top with a body-hugging vest, combined with a very short denim skirt that provided lots of Panty Shots since her very first appearance. Her skimpiest one is her Tekken 4 outfit and of course, [[spoiler: as the luchadora Jaycee.]]
* ZigZagged with Lara Croft in the ''Franchise/TombRaider'' franchise. Lara's breasts seemed to have gotten larger and larger by ''VideoGame/TombRaiderIII'' and ''VideoGame/TombRaiderTheLastRevelation''. Once the franchise gotten a reboot, Lara's breasts, while still fairly large, were given much more realistic proportions. When ''VideoGame/TombRaider2013'' was being developed, the developers not only made Lara's breasts smaller, but they kept redesigning her over and over until people would look at Lara's face first instead of her breasts.
* In ''VideoGame/WarshipGirls'', Lexington's remodel exchanges her sailor blouse for a blazer without blouse that lets you see her bra.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'':
** Sylvanas Windrunner's original model 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.]]
** When ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' launched, there were only a few dozen High Elves in the game, all [=NPCs=], all of them were fishes out of water in their stories, and Sylvanas was the only undead one. 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.

** ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
