* Reno in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' at first wasn't supposed to be a pretty boy, (in contrast with Rufus [[http://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-01/art/ff7-turks.jpg for instance]]). Later the ''Compilation'' gave him GenericCuteness to bring him in line with fandom portrayal of the character. ** The film ''Advent Children'' made [[ScaryBlackMan Barrett]] more conventionally attractive... and gave him a fishnet vest...

* Doris Husselmeyer of ''{{Ernie}}'' started out so ugly she gave people heart attacks and went from good-looking enough that dating Arnold Arnoldski was a step down for her to getting hit on by handsome bodybuilders on the beach. Possibly because of ExecutiveMeddling. * In issue #1 of ''StrangersInParadise'', Katchoo is very flat-chested and Francine's slightly overweight. By the time we come to the final issue, both women are bustier, much thinner and even have longer legs. This is evidenced by comparing the [[BookEnds first and last]] [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_man3hcaPMk1rnhr86o1_1280.jpg covers.]]

Added DiffLines:
* Cinderella's stepmother and stepsisters are commonly mentioned as unattractive (it is pantomime tradition for the sisters to be played by men after all). In Disney's ''{{Disney/Cinderella}}'' they are genuinely unsightly and the stepmother is quite old. Various retellings and adaptations make the sisters cuter - highlighting their ugly personalities rather than their appearance - and the stepmother usually looks much younger. Even in Disney's live action [[{{Film/Cinderella2015}} remake]], the stepmother is portrayed as an attractive redhead, while the sisters are just garishly dressed (the narration saying they were only ugly on the inside). The FairyGodmother is another case; originally envisioned as a sweet grandmotherly type, she's become more of a FairySexy with a PimpedOutDress.

Added DiffLines:
* Seems to be happening with the Wicked Witch of the West. In the [[Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz original novel]] she's described as a wizened old hag with one eye, and her iconic appearance in [[Film/TheWizardOfOz the MGM film]] is a green skinned long-nosed crone. Starting with ''{{Literature/Wicked}}'' she's described in more flattering terms, with her love interest finding her attractive but the author emphasising she's not pretty in a conventional way. The [[{{Theatre/Wicked}} musical]] makes her more attractive, with only the green skin - and giving her a PimpedOutDress instead of rags. ''Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful'' has the justification of being a prequel, but still shows that she had a human form of a pretty young girl - and was more of a CuteMonsterGirl when she gained the green skin. Finally when the witch appears in ''Series/OnceUponATime'', she's a young and pretty woman who only gets green skin when she's feeling especially jealous.

* SquirrelGirl was a veritable {{Gonk}} in [[http://www.the-isb.com/images/SquirrelGirl02.jpg her debut.]] She's gotten [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SquirrelGirl.jpg much cuter]] since. Almost {{zigzagged|Trope}} in her case, as she went from a near-pinup in looks (as in [[http://38.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_luomnyHMbS1r08pt9.jpg this page]] from ''New Avengers'') to [[http://nerdist.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/543416bceebf3.jpg "funny-looking but still cute"]] in her current title ''Comics/UnbeatableSquirrelGirl''.

* The Halliwell sisters in ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' started the first season out with fairly ordinary and normal clothes and rather plain hairstyles. By season 3 they were wearing the latest fashions and their sex appeal was played up. Then around season 5 the outfits got ''really'' vampy.
