This shouldn't be confused with a design that happens to be [[FetishFuel very attractive]] to fandoms with certain kinks; that is more or less out of the original designer's hands. Nor when it's just [[ArtEvolution the artstyle itself is becoming refined,]] though it can overlap. This trope refers to the slow changes to make the character more marketable that happen over the course of a series or multiple adaptations, even if it feels detrimental to the character, sometimes, the character's unusual design is what made him interesting, before the slow turn to looking more generic.

* Inverted in ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}''. Nakai has always been overweight and noticeably older than the other mangaka, but he looked relatively normal in his initial appearance and has since gotten steadily fatter and less attractive. This went into overdrive after [[spoiler: he TookALevelInJerkass and later came back from his time at his mother's house, although this can be justified in that he has not been taking very good care of himself since he became a jerk.]]

* ComicBook/BlackAdam started out as a villain with a hooked nose, pointed chin and slightly Sinestro-esque facial features. As his character has matured into an anti-heroic/anti-villainous knight templar type, he retained a hooked nose and arched eyebrows, although they became less prominent, but his jaw got stronger and larger, and his features more handsome, and while his features still look appropriately cruel and proud, he is now generally accepted as being good looking, to the point of [[DwayneJohnson The Rock]] being cast to play him in the [[DevelopmentHell film adaptation]]. Incidentally, the change in features made Adam look a ''lot'' like Marvel's [[Comicbook/SubMariner Namor the Sub-Mariner]]. Their personalities are very similar to boot; it's a wonder Marvel didn't react to the new and improved Black Adam with a lawsuit.

* In their [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue initial appearance]] the male swimmer class in {{Franchise/Pokemon}} was meant to be FanDisservice. In later generations, they weren't hideous but still meant to be a joke with their macho poses. By [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Generation VII]] however, they turned into MrFanservice.

* At some point in the recent past, someone looked at the plot of Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast and asked themselves: "how can I turn this into a sexy [[YoungAdultLiterature YA]] drama for the Literature/{{Twilight}} crowd?" The result was ''Film/{{Beastly}}'', with an incarnatation of The Beast that's just a gothy Alex Pettyfer with a scar and some weird tattoos on his face. No, really.
** This is a case of AdaptationalAttractiveness, however; in the YA novel that the movie's based on, his "beast" form is the more monstrous fur-and-claws version.

* In ''Series/DowntonAbbey'' Edith is supposed to be the unfashionable PlainJane of her sisters, but as the series goes on and she works on her self-esteem and ambitions, she acquires a modern and flattering sense of fashion and turns out to be actually rather good-looking, although in an adorable-yet-discrete beauty, unlike the kind of beauty of resident MsFanservice [[FemmeFatale Mary]].
