* {{Inverted|Trope}} in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilRevelations2'' with Claire Redfield. While she's by no means ''ugly'', [[http://i.imgur.com/Bn5ENG0.jpg it's obvious that age and presumably stress took their toll on her looks since 1998]]. Part of the fandom approved of how plausible her aging seems compared to the trope's usual straight examples.

* Geralt from ''VideoGame/TheWitcher'' games has undergone a redesign with each game. Compare his design [[http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff199/Bloodhnd/intro_geralt-1.jpg for the first game,]] his design [[http://static-2.nexusmods.com/15/images/153/1821584-1331946893.jpg for the sequel]], and his design [[http://core0.staticworld.net/images/article/2014/06/witcher-3-geralt-100311899-orig.png for the third game.]] Even beyond the improvements in graphics technology, his facial features have been changed quite a bit.

** Likewise, in earlier artwork, both [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/kidicarus/images/6/61/Youngpit.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120612004310 Pit]] and [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/kidicarus/images/b/b2/Palutena_-Kid_Icarus-.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20131115220222 Palutena]] looked really plain. Then ''[[Franchise/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros.

This revamped design was so well received that it was kept for the much anticipated ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' while making him [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/kidicarus/images/7/7a/UprisingPit.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100617164558 look slightly younger]], and Palutena herself received a similar redesign for her cameo appearance in ''[[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/kidicarus/images/d/dd/PalutenaBrawl.png/revision/latest?cb=20120627193953 Brawl]]'' and now looks drop-dead gorgeous in ''[[http://www.kidicaruswiki.org/File:Palutena_Uprising.jpg Uprising]]'' Both these cases are also involved with a few decades of ArtEvolution given the period of waiting between games.

* Link from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' was pretty funny looking in his first few appearances, thanks to unkempt hair, a stubby nose, and huge ears all on a rather plain face. Then ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' chiseled his face and cleaned up his hair, turning him into a full-on {{Bishonen}}. Just compare this concept artwork of him in ''[[http://zeldawiki.org/File:AoL_concept_4.jpg The Adventure Of Link]]'' to his concept art for ''[[http://zeldawiki.org/images/f/f8/Oot_Link_facial_expression_concept.jpg Ocarina of Time]]''. The latter has become the basis for his design in all subsequent games featuring his adult form, and many will argue that he gets even prettier with each new game. Even ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds A Link Between Worlds]]'', which reuses his ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]'' design, uses GenericCuteness to make Link more baby faced and attractive than he was in the original artwork.
* The Zora race from various ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' gone through several changes as the series progressed. ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' had them as [[https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/zelda/images/1/14/Zora_Artwork_%28Ocarina_of_Time%29.png/revision/latest?cb=20110427011925 humanoid beings with a tail on their thead, large fins on the arms, and webbed feet.]] The eyes also gave them an alien-like appearance. By ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', the design was mostly kept the same, but with more details and their faces were made more humanlike. ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' pretties up the Zoras further by giving them [[https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/zelda/images/6/66/Zora_%28Breath_of_the_Wild%29.png/revision/latest?cb=20170222152444 a more sleek and slim look, changes their eyes to look more catlike, and their feet are human shapped with webbing in between the toes]].

* Kana from the VisualNovel ''VisualNovel/KanaLittleSister'' was drawn very realistically for someone dying of a renal disease, her body oddly developed due to poor bone growth. As such, the endings where she dies and the main character sees a vision of a healthy and well-proportioned Kana are even more emotional than they would be otherwise. Unfortunately, the people who made the remake seemed scared that people would find her "ugly", and remodelled her to a generic implausibly attractive IllGirl. Some of the major differences are pointed out [[http://web.archive.org/web/20090129154017/http://pages.prodigy.net/kana/xbox/ here]]. Of course, the original Kana still has features that are considered attractive, at least in Japan, since she is light-skinned and very petite, making her ''{{kawaii|ko}}''. The player character often comments on this.
