* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' - Prequel villain [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/master_xehanort_3435.jpg Master Xehanort]] (the original incarnation of the franchise-long BigBad) is a wrinkled, balding old man when we first see him. When we go even further back, it turns out he was [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/young_xehanort_6406.png at least as good-looking as his future selves.]] Makes you wonder if he [[spoiler: stole Terra's body]] just so he could be a {{Bishonen}} again.

* Cologne (pictured [[http://ranma.wikia.com/wiki/File:Young_Cologne_-_episode_69.png here in her youth]], whereas [[http://ranma.wikia.com/wiki/Cologne?file=Cologne_-_OVA_1.png this is how we normally see her]]) in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', but ''not'' Happosai. Despite what he says the only difference between then and now is that he had less wrinkles and more hair. WordOfGod is that Genma was handsome once too, explaining how he [[UglyGuyHotWife married someone as attractive as Nodoka]]. The old and wrinkly Harumaki and [[spoiler:the equally old and wrinkly Gyouko]] insist that [[GenderBender female]] Ranma looks just like the young Gyouko. Ranma does not take the news well.

* Kensei Ma of ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' is a good case. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/history_s_strongest_disciple_kenichi/c032/14.html Kenichi's reaction to seeing a picture of a 17-year old Kensei]] says more than enough.

* Sophia in ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'': It became something of a CanonDiscontinuity. In one episode, she mentioned she was a [[FieryRedhead natural redhead,]] and in another she said she was "a tall, voluptuous blonde with a butt like granite." Although she's also claimed (among other things) that Stalin, Roosevelt, and Churchill actually held the Yalta to fight for her hand in marriage, having differing hair colors isn't the most outlandish thing she's said.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'', the fat, middle-aged Comedy Chimp used to be slim and handsome. He gets annoyed when some kids see photos of him when he was younger and refuse to believe its him.

* Manager PaulBearer, in the middle of a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvHw026UDKo plot dump]] explaining he was carrying on with Wrestling/{{Kane}} and TheUndertaker's mother, paused and explained to a totally-unbelieving interviewer that "I didn't look like ''this'', then -- in fact I was actually pretty studly!". Most viewers considered this unlikely. But pictures of [[http://www.percypringle.com/Gallery-Pictures/Room-2/pic-017.html Bill Moody as a young man]] show it to be true.
