* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'': Lola Bunny is an interesting variation. She went from being a no nonsense PassionateSportsGirl in ''Film/SpaceJam'' to a bubbly, airheaded ValleyGirl in ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''. However this is a case where GirlinessUpgrade ''doesn't'' overlap with HotterAndSexier, as her original ''Space Jam'' character was nothing more than a tomboyishly beautiful sex symbol with few defining traits other than "sexy" and "athletic", while her ''Looney Tunes Show'' counterpart is cute and girly but not overtly sexual or seductive, and has a real funny personality, without being just a MsFanservice.

* ''Anime/FutureGPXCyberFormula'': Asuka Sugo and Kyouko Aoi from . Asuka starts off as a {{Tsundere}}, while Kyouko starts off as a RichBitch manager. Both become more girly and more like full-grown women as the series goes on.

* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' was meant to be gender neutral according to Zachelere. Hasbro disagreed but early media was still roughly unisex. As you get deeper and deeper into TheEighties the characters and media became more feminine and girl geared. By [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3 G3]], which is from TheNoughties, it didn't even ''have'' male ponies.
* Inverted with the Easy Bake Oven. The later models are more unisex looking and marketing is trying to appeal to boys as well as girls.

* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' was meant to be gender neutral according to Zachelere. Hasbro disagreed but early media was still roughly unisex. G1 were stated female on their cards, except for the Big Brother and Mountain Boy ponies. Slightly larger and with the foot feathering of Clydesdales, they came in pastel shades like their sisters but had names like Salty, Slugger, Chief and Fireball.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'': Every doll of Merida, a FieryRedhead and BadassPrincess with QuirkyCurls and WildHair, looks far more well-groomed and ladylike than she really is. The [[http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m0yl7zR3E41r1wmszo1_500.jpg Disney store model]] is closer to the original, but the [[http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lzb1trgGZq1r1wmszo1_500.jpg Mattel collection]] barely resembles her. Also, her formerly simple dresses are now GemEncrusted, and her CoolHorse, Angus, a massive Clydesdale in the movie, is shrunk down to [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m40wd3BsAe1qi94iao8_500.jpg pony size]].

** This is Inverted, with Makoto, when she always has the status of the resident {{Tomboy}}, she never actually acted masculine, it is [[HugeSchoolGirl her size]] and strength what makes her tough, but in this show she tends to act more butchy and never wears skirts or dresses, while in the manga and anime she dresses as girly as the rest of the girls.

* In ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'', Toy Chica is much more feminine than the original Chica from ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'', with a slimmer, curvier figure, long eyelashes, and even a pair of [[WhoWearsShortShorts pink short shorts]].
** The original Chica also appears in ''2'' and actually looks less feminine than before[[spoiler:, but since it's either a possible prequel or one of the Bite of '87 victim's many nightmares , this is another straight example]].
* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Melee'': Sheik received one here and in ''Super Smash Bros Brawl''. While she still looks androgynous to the point where she's [[ViewerGenderConfusion often mistaken for male]], they made her more "obviously" female and gave her a braid.

** Zig-zagged. Her first design had a round cupcake country-cottage look, then she became a cute tomboy then became slightly more feminine looking in a {{timeskip}}, and the third reboot has her as a long haired strawberry blond tween.

* ''WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite'': Rainbow Brite's 2009 doll redesign includes thinner waists, longer hair, and more sparkle. It bombed and only lasted a few months in stores.



** Over the years the series has been gearing itself more at girls, what with Princess Dora and Dora appearing more often in dresses.

** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': this happens a lot with the toys. Tomboys Applejack and Rainbow Dash sport TaremeEyes and come with pink frilly hair accessories. Applejack's hat is absent from almost all toys. Pinkie Pie's tangled mess of a mane is perfectly groomed, and several Princess Celestia toys are [[PrincessesPreferPink pink]] even though the ''[[CoversAlwaysLie box art]]'' [[CoversAlwaysLie depicts her as white.]]

** Blossom and Bubbles are both {{Girly Girl}}s but the tomboyish Buttercup received a huge one of these. All the girls were made taller and skinner, were given makeup, and have "girlier" hair. These versions were placed on things like makeup bags, and they had more emphasis on "girly" activities like shopping and makeup. It didn't seem stick around for long so it's hard to find anything on the internet regarding this phase though. For reference, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dZ3URW4xAY here's the redesign]]. Reportedly, [[CreatorBacklash Craig [=McCracken=] was not pleased with this at all]], so there's little wonder it didn't stick.
