* Wrestling/GailKim went from cackling masked villain, to antisocial rogue, to a vague ''Film/{{Matrix}}'' type [[TheGimmick gimmick]] to...proclaiming herself [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman the most beautiful woman in pro wrestling]].

* In ''Series/RoboCopTheSeries'', having her brain transplanted into a computer seems to have agreed with Diana Powers, as she went from a frumpy, bespectacled, ponytailed secretary to a loose-haired cybernetic siren in a lamé dress after losing her body.

** In the same vein, in ''Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire'', the female PlayerCharacter (May/Haruka) wore a red and black collared shirt with a longer white shirt underneath, black bicycle shorts, black and white gloves, shoes with black socks and a bandanna. As well, her bangs were quite angular to complete her tomboyish look. Her ''Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire'' redesign gives her a red and black tank top, white shorts over black bicycle shorts, dumps the socks and the gloves and replaces the full head bandanna for something more akin to a bow with her bangs gaining more curves to it.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'': inverted with Cindy. While shown to be a good fighter during the climactic battle in the movie, the series upgrades her [[TookALevelInBadass skills to the point that she can compete even with a member of a warrior race of aliens]], and in general puts more emphasis on her passion for karate. To match, she trades her GirlishPigtails for a TomboyishPonytail.

* PlayedForLaughs in the ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "That Sinking Feeling" where a friend of [[BollywoodNerd Baljeet]] comes to visit him for the first time in years, having gone through this in-between events. Baljeet actually thought [[ComedicallyMissingThePoint she was a boy the whole time]] and that "he" [[GenderBender suddenly became one]].

* Sadly due to ValuesDissonance some countries with [[StayInTheKitchen more stricter gender roles]] like Japan expect all {{Tomboy}}s to just "be in a phase" and ultimately go through this trope. Obviously, this isn't speaking for all of them, but it's still unfortunate nonetheless.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Arya only has a mild one and not one of her own volition but during Season 5, she's given a bath and a new set of clothes, which is perhaps the first time we've seen Arya in a dress since Season 1.

* ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'': Zigzagged. The title character doesn't mind THAT much to put on dresses and make up, and even seems to enjoy putting them up. Her problem is less with femininity in itself, but more with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5A_Rl8aQxII feeling that she cannot be a good wife like her good-hearted but traditional family thinks is best for her]]. After spending almost the whole movie as a SweetPollyOliver, she ultimately sets down in wearing her hair down and dressing in a simple and cute dress. Thing is, since she is a member of the Franchise/DisneyPrincess, [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dp_gowns_66.jpg she almost exclusively shows up in the pink dress]].[[note]]The fact that she wears the pink dress rather than the blue one seems to be because so many of the other heroines have blue gowns. Aurora canonically has a blue dress but hers is usually pink in merchandising for this reason too.[[/note]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'', Janine Melnitz underwent a GirlinessUpgrade in the third season and onward to appease the MoralGuardians: [[TheOtherDarrin a new]] [[Creator/KathSoucie voice actress]] who toned down her old Bronx accent, a softer appearance, and a less harsh personality. This was actually justified in the 5th season episode "Janine, You've Changed"; she had made a deal with a ghost to be made over to win Egon's affections, and the ghost had hidden the changes from the cast. Ironically, the series had also found excuses to [[AllUpToYou send her into the field]] more and more often, even as this was going on.[[/folder]]
