* A male version appears in the first episode of ''Anime/OsomatsuSan'' when the brothers reinvent themselves as an idol group who regularly saves the planet.



* Alison "ComicBook/{{Dazzler}}" Blaire of the ''ComicBook/XMen,'' a singer with the ability to turn light into sound and vice versa. She can use most powers seen with manipulators of sound or light. This also results in her shows looking ''freaking awesome.'' Naturally, she changes with what sort of music is popular at the time; when introduced, she was billed as the first disco-themed superhero!
** She's also a DiscOneNuke in the arcade game; her sonic explosions will clear a ''lot'' of {{Mooks}} from your path. In the comics at the time, she was actually ''far'' more likely to use {{WesternAnimation/Jem}}-esque effects.

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Jem}}'' would probably be the closest western counterpart of the classic Magic Idol singer, only she's already an adult and uses highly-advanced technology instead of magic to achieve the disguise.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/LoliRock LoliRock]]'' has elements of both this and MagicalGirlWarrior. The main characters use their innate magical singing talents in order to maintain thriving popstar careers for their civilian identities.

* ''Manga/IdolDreams'' (31 Ai Dream) has a twist on the genre - rather than being a child with an OlderAlterEgo, the heroine is a ChristmasCake OfficeLady who becomes a teenager thanks to an experimental drug.

* ''Anime/MacrossDelta'': Even if Walkure operate via SufficientlyAdvancedTechnology, they're close enough, with the transformation sequences and curing Var Syndrome via music.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'' has elements of this building on the MagicalGirlWarrior tropes present in the previous ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' film by making said magic only work when the girls perform in their band since Twilight Sparkle went back to Equestria. Additionally the villains are Equestria's versions of the [[Enthralling Siren Sirens]] - banished to the human world. Still able to cause discord with their voices, they pass themselves off as a GirlGroup in the school's battle of the bands.

* In ''Anime/ShowByRock'', every main character is a member of some form of band, and gains the power to fight using their music while simultaneously attempting to achieve stardom. It's explained as musicians that have abnormally large potential having the ability to fight against Dark monsters, [[spoiler: with [[RookieRedRanger Cyan having the most potential out of all of them]]]].

It's also worth noting that Sailor Venus's dream is to become this - and she ''is'' in the live action adaptation (see below).



* Yuna could be considered to be this in ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 Final Fantasy X-2]]'', despite her age. (While any of the three playable characters can activate the Songstress [=DressSphere=] and transform into an idol singer with magical music, Yuna deserves special mention due to the plot relevance of her transformation.)

Additionally the original wearer of her transformation.)the Songstress dressphere Lenne was one too - she was a famous singer that was also a summoner fighting on the front lines in the Machina War.

* ''{{Mink}}'' uses this trope, except her transformation isn't done by magic but instead with "secret technology from the future."

* ''PrettyRhythmAuroraDream'' has the main main characters as ice skaters instead of idol singers, and they lack Older Alter Egos, but otherwise the show fits the genre pretty well.
