* ''WesternAnimation/Looney Tunes'': 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.

* ''HannahMontana'' generally did this to Lily as the show wore on. When she first showed up, she was a skateboard riding tomboy and by the end she's as girly as Hannah.

* ''LaverneAndShirley'': Played with in an episode where Laverne tries to attract a guy by dressing and behaving in a more feminine manner. It doesn't change who she is inside, and she ultimately decides she would rather be herself. * ''Series/HouseOfAnubis''Patricia is the cool goth who says what she thinks, does what she wants and scares the rest of the students in all three seasons, but come season 2 her personality started to soften up overall. What happened? She met [[BelligerentSexualTension Eddie]] and started to turn a bit nicer. Not to mention the whole near death mystery stuff and the [[PowerOfFriendship power of friendship]]. If those things can't begin to chip away at someone's [[IceQueen icy]] shell, nothing can.

* ''{{Roseanne}}'': In the first seasons, Darlene was a sports-obsessed tomboy who always had her hair tied back into a tight braid to give a boyish appearance. Then she becomes a depressed gothic chick, wearing black all the time. After falling in love with David, she becomes more girly and starts wearing dresses more often.

* ''PunkyBrewster'' was a tomboy up until midway through the third season (first syndicated season--the first two aired on NBC) when she falls for a boy some six years older than she is. From that point, Punky's tomboy days had become history. This was most likely manifested in an early season three episode when Allen leaves, which makes Punky cry. * ''''Series/{{Hollyoaks}}'': Grace Black started out as a businesslike, ruthless crook determined to make her mark in the male-dominated world of organised crime (while her sister Clare had been known as a FemmeFatale.) When it turned out that viewers preferred the actress's natural warmth over the character that had been written for her, Grace got a new, more "feminine" look and became softer; with her storylines shifting focus to her home life with boyfriend Trevor and desire to have a baby. Even her shot in the opening credits changed to a pink background instead of black.

"subjected to this" ? Also, I fail to see how wearing a catsuit on a book cover matches this trope. In generally, removing anything that sounds like Chickification.
* Sora from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' went from dressing as a tomboy and into things like soccer, to ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', where she started dressing girlier, switching hobbies to the more traditionally "feminine" sport of tennis, and in the end grew up to be a fashion designer. * An interesting variation occurs in the manga ''Manga/IceRevolution'' when karate champion Masaki arranges her own GirlinessUpgrade by switching to figure skating, which she views as a prettier, more feminine form of athleticism. She manages to secure her macho father's support only by proving that a "girly" activity like figure skating is a physical sport every bit as demanding as karate (as it is.) Ironically, she scores poorly every time she tries to skate a program that emphasizes femininity instead of athleticism. * Happens to [[StudentCouncilPresident Its]][[HeirToTheDojo uki]] in ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'' as part of her CharacterDevelopment. She starts out hiding her love of stuffed animals and desire to doll up in cute clothing behind a [[{{Bifauxnen}} masculine exterior]], out of a desire to be a respected martial artist like her IllBoy twin brother Satsuki. After joining the Fashion Club (and later, becoming a Cure herself), she learns that it's alright for her to enjoy both martial arts and cute things (helped by [[spoiler: Satsuki begining to get better]]). Eventually [[spoiler:[[ExpositoryHairstyleChange she grows her hair out a bit]] and starts wearing the female uniform during the finale]]. * When she was younger, [[Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia Hungary]] was a CuteBruiser {{Bokukko}} who thought she was a boy. As she grew up, she graduated to a TeamMom who wears [[{{Meido}} frilly dresses]] and flower HairDecorations. Notably, she actually TookALevelInBadass while becoming more feminine and maternal: as a TeamMom {{Meido}} Hungary is ''physically stronger'' than she used to be as a CuteBruiser {{Bokukko}}... only that she looks girlier when she does so. * ''Manga/FairyTail'': Mirajane underwent this process before the story begins; Lucy is shocked to learn that Fairy Tail's resident TeamMom and YamatoNadeshiko used to be bitter rivals with {{Badass}} ActionGirl Erza. It's explained that this happened due to [[spoiler: the disappearance of Mirajane and Elfman's younger sister, Lisanna.]] * [[{{Bokukko}} Ukyou Kuonji]] from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' decides to try wearing the girls's uniform and acting girlier after she becomes concerned that Ranma considers her just OneOfTheBoys. While she does manage to attract a lot of "who's the new girl" attention from the other Furinkan students (at least until they realize it's just Ukyo) Ranma only wants to know why she's acting so weird. Once Ukyo realizes that Ranma likes her fine just the way she is she decides to just be herself. She does wear the girl's uniform at least once afterwards (and lampshades it in the original, though not in the English dub) but she doesn't act any girlier wearing it. * Takatsuki from ''Manga/WanderingSon'' 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}}.]] * Asuka Sugo and Kyouko Aoi from ''Anime/FutureGPXCyberFormula''. 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. * Touka of ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' initially starts as a rough JerkWithAHeartOfGold tomboy who fought as "Rabbit". While she was always pretty she gets even prettier in the sequel manga, with less of a temper.

* In the seventies, there was a ComicBook/WonderWoman action figure, that due to ExecutiveMeddling, became a Wonder Woman ''doll'', with a sparkly pink costume, brushable hair, and a pony. It doesn't help that, in those days, her comic book wasn't doing well; the author [[OldShame even regretted it.]]

* ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'': Zigzagged. The title character actually doesn't loathe 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. Notably Aurora canonically has a blue dress but hers is usually pink in merchandising for this reason too.[[/note]] * ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'': Pretty much 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]]. * ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'': Carl's wife, Ellie, seems way more feminine as an adult than she ever did as a kid--that doesn't stop her from being {{Adorkable}} though. * Rapunzel from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' received one prior to her films release. For much of development she wore a green dress, which can be seen in a large number of concept art. In the final product her dress is pink.

She starts out as a street thief who habitually dresses as much like a boy as possible to keep the men from getting interested in her, gets recruited by the heroes and given dresses and courtliness training as part of a plot to infiltrate the nobility, then still later becomes a master of them in her own right. Since her {{Badass}} level is also going through the roof during this transition, this is definitely ''not'' {{Chickification}}. * The ''Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures'' books subjected Ace to this - a strong-jawed tough-girl punk in the show, a SpyCatsuit-wearing babe on [[SexyPackaging the book covers]]. * The Capitol does this to Katniss in ''Literature/TheHungerGames''.

* Ami in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' was always portrayed with BoyishShortHair. In the [[Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon live action]] her civilian self has long hair and, while her Sailor costume has the short blue hair, it's in a much more feminine style than the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] and [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]].

Inverted, however, 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. * PunkyBrewster was a tomboy up until midway through the third season (first syndicated season--the first two aired on NBC) when she falls for a boy some six years older than she is.

When it turned out that viewers preferred the actress's natural warmth over the character that had been written for her, Grace got a new, more "feminine" look and became softer; with her storylines shifting focus to her home life with boyfriend Trevor and desire to have a baby.

Though in a weird way, Brie played this straight - wearing her hair in girlier styles and favouring outfits with ruffles on them. This gave the twins a TomboyAndGirlyGirl dynamic.

* Kit of the ''AmericanGirl'' doll line is mentioned to despise pink and, in the books is [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl the Tomboy to her best friend Ruthie's Girly Girl]]. For the most part, her line has kept this, but when TheFilmOfTheBook came out, her blue school outfit and pajamas were both slowly phased out for girlier, pinker outfits that would be much more in-character for Ruthie to own... despite Ruthie herself getting her own doll and line of clothes.

* Kairi from ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' is rather tomboyish in the original game, but becomes more feminine (with longer hair, a pink outfit, and whatnot) when a year passes in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''. * Brigette, the young host of ''[[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} Pokémon Box Ruby and Sapphire]]'', used to look a lot more like a tomboyish teenage girl in her first appearance, as she had short hair, a DangerouslyShortSkirt, and brown sandals. When she reappeared as the host for ''Pokémon Bank'', she was given a more feminine redesign, with a dress, longer hair, and girlier green sandals; she still looks a bit like a tomboy, but far less so.

** The ''WesternAnimation/DorasExplorerGirls'' series features an older Dora with longer hair, a headband, a dress, and tights. Although it's not unreasonable, given that she's now "Tween Dora" and has aged a few years. Still it caused quite an InternetBacklash, though once the cartoon began it getting more viewers than the original.

* In the first of the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTVSpecials'', Megan looked like someone who could reasonably work on a ranch, with jeans, boots, a gingham shirt, vest, and a TomboyishPonytail. In later G1 ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' works, she has frilly [[TrueBlueFemininity blue overalls]], a slightly puffy, white shirt, and her ponytails is longer and wavier and tied with a {{pink| means feminine}} [[HairDecorations ribbon]]. The original Megan was a case of AdaptationalBadass while the latter portrayal is closer to the toys, though still more of an ActionGirl. ** This happens a lot with the toys based on ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Tomboys Applejack and Rainbow Dash sport TaremeEyes and come with pink frilly hair accessories. Applejack's hat is notably 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.]] ** WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls went this route, most infamously with Applejack and Rainbow Dash. Their personalities and roles remained pretty much the same as their pony counterparts. Notably their default outfits had skirts on them (though it should also be said that their pony counterparts didn't mind wearing dresses every now and then). * Gwen from ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' was this after [[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce the time skip]]. Her original series incarnation was a sharp-tongued 10 years old [[TheSmartGuy smart girl]] with slightly tomboyish characteristics (mainly martial art skills, short hair, and temper). Her Alien Force incarnation, while retaining the intellectual personality and remaining a competent ActionGirl, has an obvious more feminine appearance, is less of a DeadpanSnarker and more calm and responsible (at least in the first two seasons), becoming something of a TeamMom, and has a AllGirlsWantBadBoys relationship with Kevin. In some episodes she is pretty much just a SatelliteLoveInterest to Kevin. ** This naturally extended to her EvilCounterpart Charmcaster. In the original series, Charmcaster wore a trenchcoat that covered most of her body, had her hair in a TomboyishPonytail and TomboyishSidetails, and had a rough personality like Gwen. In the new series, she wears a sleeveless top and a miniskirt, wears her long hair straight, and has [[FemmeFatale a more coy, seductive personality.]] * 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 one of the rare cases where GirlinessUpgrade ''doesn't'' overlap with HotterAndSexier, as her original ''Space Jam'' character was nothing more than a tomboyishly beautiful sex symbol with not many 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. * Invoked in the ''WesternAnimation/MikeLuAndOg'' episode "For the Love of Mike". When tomboy Mike's increasingly dirty methods of trying to keep [[AbhorrentAdmirer Haggis and Baggis Cuzzlewit]] away only make them more attracted to her, Mike decided to do the opposite and girls herself up with a pretty dress, lipstick and perfume. It works.

** In the mid-2000s, DisneyChannel gave Spinelli, the tomboyish female lead, a bit of one when she appeared in promos for the show. The advertisements only featured her, and she spoke like a borderline ValleyGirl. This also happened when Disney Channel was going through their own girliness upgrade. This version of Spinelli went as quick as she came in.

* There was an attempt to do this with ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' once. Blossom and Bubbles are both {{Girly Girl}}s however the tomboyish Buttercup received a huge GirlinessUpgrade. 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 to stick aaround 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.

* ''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 G3, which is from TheNoughties, it didn't even ''have'' male ponies.
