* Albert Heinrich/004 in ''{{Cyborg009}}'' started out ''much'' stranger-looking than simply having MonochromaticEyes and a GlasgowGrin-level mouth; his early appearances had him sporting an unflattering bowl-cut hairstyle that gave his head a very mushroom-like cast, his nose was elongated and pointy (but still only second to 002's GagNose), and his facial structure amounted to mostly being a long narrow jawline. Ishinomori gradually drew him more normalized over the course of the manga with the ensuing ArtEvolution, to the point where he looked rather handsome in the final chapters of the manga.

** This happens to Liu Bei as well. He has facial hair in the earlier games until the sixth game onwards where they made him beardless, younger and more handsome. It would probably make sense why Lady Sun Shaingxiang had a crush on him.

* While ''Loki'' has always maintained a certain "je ne sais quoi," there is no arguing that, as Kid!Loki, his design grew from [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/aa9fc8169b4895e08882fc8a311ad34a/tumblr_mfz3hyvR2u1r2mzigo1_1280.png "eyebrowless goblin child"]] to [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/ad42603b2281d19d805600fc55302987/tumblr_mf4kfw9xp61rxd4cao5_250.png "handsome young lad."]]

* Jarael from the ''Franchise/StarWars'' comic ''Comicbook/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' is supposedly designed to defy the typical comic sexbomb and be someone who "works for a living". With some slight variation DependingOnTheArtist, she is portrayed as a svelte bombshell, clad in a chest-emphasizing sleeveless T-shirt with flowing white hair, a supermodel face (apparently occasionally modeled on Liv Tyler) unmarred by all but the most minor smudges (she works in a ''junkyard'') and a few cosmetic tattoos.

* ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' has gone from skull-faced Lon Chaney to badly-scarred Creator/ClaudeRains ([[Film/PhantomOfTheOpera1943 from the 1943 film]]) to slightly sunburnt Creator/GerardButler. If you watch clips from the original film on Website/YouTube, at least one comment will say that Chaney is too ugly. In the original book, 'the Phantom' also works as a description of how his face actually looks: yellow skin, a few wisps of hair on his head, and ''no nose''. The book made it quite obvious that the phantom had leprosy... yet later versions of the play, movie, and books portray him with elephantiasis... and not even the kind that you'd want to run away from.\\

* This is inverted in the film adaptations of [[Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde]]. In the original book, Hyde was described as looking mostly normal, but having something [[UncannyValley off]] about him. In most film adaptations, Hyde is portrayed as a [[HumanoidAbomination humanoid abomination]], similar to the [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]].

** 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 the first several seasons of the show, Angela's entire character could be summed up with the phrase "prissy religious judgemental bitch", and it reflected in her appearance. She rarely smiled, dressed like an older woman, wore her hair in unflattering styles and judged perfectly reasonably-dressed women as looking like "whores", for wearing things such as open-toed sandals. As the season went on, she became somewhat more sympathetic, to the point where by the final season we were supposed to be rooting for she and Dwight to reconcile. By that time she had started smiling more, wearing her hair in looser, more flowing styles and even wearing shoes and dresses that she herself would have described as "whorish" in the first few seasons. Dwight even lampshades this: "You're wearing open-toed sandals. When did you become a whore?"

** Some of the characters in the ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' remakes are more attractive now than they were in the original. Morty is a prime example. Originally only somewhat attractive, in the remakes he's a full-on Bishonen. Will, Ariana, and Archer are also more attractive in the remakes than in the original. Even Pryce is upgraded from a somewhat ugly old man to looking very good for his age.
** Red went from an average looking, if maybe a bit scrawny, looking boy in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' to {{bishonen}} in the remakes.

** A common occurrence in remakes is the prettying-up of much of the cast, partially due to ArtShift. Some of the characters in the ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' remakes are more attractive now than they were in the original. Morty is a prime example. Originally only somewhat attractive, in the remakes he's a full-on Bishonen. Will, Ariana, Will and the now named Ariana and Archer are also more attractive in the remakes than in the original. Even The rival was redesigned to at least look somewhat older, is quite thinner, and much more of a Bishonen with his hair now cut shorter, the male player character also looks somewhat taller and older, lost a lot of weight, and is drawn to look cuter than mischievous-looking; even Pryce is upgraded from a somewhat ugly old man to looking very good for his age.
** Red Applies to the ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' remakes ''Fire Red'' and ''Leaf Green'' as well, though it's most noticeable with [[PlayerCharacter Red]] and [[TheRival Blue]], who went from an being two average looking, if maybe a bit scrawny, looking boy boys in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' to {{bishonen}} who look at least two years older than they should be in the remakes.remakes.
