* ''Manga/WanderingSon'': Takatsuki was treated as a {{transsexual}} boy for most of the run and showed general dysphoria and a disdain for feminine things. Part way during high school Takatsuki became a model but started androgynous. [[spoiler:Eventually Takatsuki grows her hair out, begins wearing girl's clothes, decides not to transition and leans more toward GirlyGirl than {{Bifauxnen}} {{tomboy}}. It's been speculated that Takatsuki's specific case was more about disliking being a girl than ''actually'' being trans sexual or gender dysphoric.]]

Please refrain from equating this trope to the female character becoming inherently worse for merely starting to prefer girlier things. Such things tie into the equally misogynistic notion that [[RealWomenDontWearDresses femininity is innately bad, and that women must be stereotypically masculine to be seen as strong and worthy of respect]].

This trope does not overlap with {{Chickification}}, which is when a once-capable female character becomes a wimp. [[note]]It does, however, sometimes overlap with OneOfTheBoys.[[/note]] The trick is that the girl becomes more dainty-looking, but keeps at least a good part of her core personality.

Added DiffLines:

** Minako in the original anime and live action series qualifies too, since in the manga she had the [[GirlyGirlWithATomboyStreak biggest tomboy streak out of all the Inner Senshi]], moreso than Makoto.

* Rachel Stevens commented on this after she began her solo career. She remarked that in SClub7 she had mostly worn jeans and t-shirts in her videos but wore more make-up and feminine outfits in her solo videos (not to mention [[FanServicePack getting a lot more provocative]]).

* ''Series/OneTreeHill'' did it to Peyton, Brooke & Hayley between seasons 4 & 5. Rather than being done to make them more feminine, it was instead done to show them as more mature than the prior season due to a 4 year TimeSkip.
