* ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}''
** In-universe, Inklings are cute but very lean kids in their early-to-mid teens with no curves, bust, or muscle definition to speak of. So, of course, fan artists that give the girls at least moderately sized breasts and hourglass figures, and the boys six-packs and athletic builds, are not at all uncommon.
** Callie, Marie, and Marina are already fairly curvy, a trait that is more often than not vastly exaggerated in fan art. Marina's already larger-than-average bust size tends to be ratcheted up to near GagBoobs levels, and even the relatively flat-chested Squid Sisters get their share of enhancements.
** Whether this is played straight or inverted for Pearl depends on which side of UglyCute the artist believes she falls on. About half of all fan art draws her with an ordinary Inkling girl's face with no protruding ForeheadOfDoom or snaggleteeth in sight, turning her into an outright TokenMiniMoe; in the other half, Pearl is so hideous it's a wonder she ever landed an IdolSinger role to begin with.

* Tsuyu Asui of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' is about as far from ugly as you can get, but fan artists tend to push it even further by downplaying her frog-like characteristics, most often shrinking her mouth down.

** Mothers in the series usually get drawn at MILF levels regardless of original bodytype. Delia Ketchum and Lana's mom, for example, are depicted with full figures and large hips despite their canonically petite sizes.

** Even fanart that isn't intended to be sexy often downplays the older male characters' {{Gag Nose}}s to more realistic (and consequently, better-looking) proportions.

* The more clunky ''{{Transformers}}'' are sometimes transformed into very pretty, and noticeably more Human-like forms (usually for your [[CompanionCube CLANG]] action).

to:

* There have been {{Hentai}} {{Yaoi}} {{Doujinshi}} manga of ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry''. Yes, ''that'' Tom and Jerry. The two are humanized, and while Tom looks like a suave adult man to be the {{Seme}}, Jerry looks significantly more boyish to fit in the {{Uke}} mold.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' has both played this straight ''and'' inverted it based on the situation/character.
** Played Straight: During the summer of 2015 when the comic was first announced, the normally lithe and willowy [[LadyOfWar Asami]] [[BadassNormal Sato]] became [[FanNickname "MuscleSami"]], a giant female bodybuilder in her bikini from "The Aftermath" large enough to carry a bodybuilder-style Korra in her arms like a baby.
** Inverted: The canonically [[AmazonianBeauty 5'8]] [[BoobsOfSteel busty]] Korra is portrayed as flatter and shorter to contrast Asami in a Butch/Femme dynamic. [[spoiler: this was happening even ''before'' Korrasami was made canon, so it's only been UpToEleven since then.]]

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'''s fans tend to have the {{Bishonen}} Edgar has almost the same amount of muscle as his hunk younger twin, Sabin. There are also some fanarts that age up Relm and Gau.
** Fans also tend to buff up [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII Vaan and Balthier]] (both whom are reasonably muscular) to be more the size of Basch. Reverse Case also occurs.

** Ardyn from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV''. In game he's portrayed as a handsome man in early middle age, with a slightly humorous, bohemian appearance, PermaStubble, prominent eye bags and a sturdy build. Fans often draw him much cleaned up as a more traditional WickedCultured SissyVillain (elements Ardyn does ''have'', if not his most prominent character aspects), if they don't just slather him in so much GenericCuteness that he appears the same as an average anime prettyboy villain in his 20s.



* Spoofed in an arc of ''Webcomic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'', where many of the hugely-muscled, hypermasculine characters contract [[Franchise/FinalFantasy Nomura]] [[{{Bishonen}} Syndrome]]. According to the creator, all of the prettified characters are based on fanart she found (including, most notably, a tongue-in-cheek drawing of [[http://demile.deviantart.com/art/Sailor-Pyramid-Head-12507918 Sailor Pyramid Head]]).

** If a Vocaloid with no box art or no anime-influenced art needs to get a design from the fans, there's a 100 percent chance that they ''will'' turn out to be handsome/gorgeous. Leon can be anything from a a blonde haired PrettyBoy to a hairy {{Hunk}}, whereas someone like Sweet Ann would have her almost creepy box art appearance turned more generically pretty or in the style of the Crypton Vocaloids. The official Taiwanese box art for Sweet Ann did just that, and even did it to Big-Al, Tonio, Prima, and Sonika even though they're ''already'' attractive as they are.

** Kagamine Len is sometimes drawn as an older looking bishounen rather than the [[TokenMiniMoe cute 14 year old]] {{Keet}} that he normally is. This kind of depiction of Len is sometimes called [[FanNickname "Ikelen"]]. It gets turned on his head when they want to make him a lithe, adorable shota that looks even ''younger'' than his official art.

** Both Peach and Daisy also get this a lot, as well as Rosalina. Peach goes from a slightly ditzy lady with plain expressions, to a total sex goddess. In the main Mario games, there's absolutely nothing overly sexual about her character other than that she's pretty. However, when ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Melee]]'' brought her into the roster, with its more-detailed art style, Peach's fanservice potential rose up considerably. That series has her making [[CoyGirlishFlirtPose coy poses]], [[AssKicksYou attacking with her hips and butt]], and [[ShowSomeLeg showed off her legs]]. The fans amp up the boobs (which are average to flat in-universe) and tend to fetishize the princesses' dresses by making the [[ImpossiblyLowNeckline top]] and/or [[DangerouslyShortSkirt bottom]] shorter, if not putting them in other {{Stripperific}} outfits. Another addition by the fandom is the tendency to depict Peach as someone who ReallyGetsAround, [[LovableSexManiac is a shameless, flirtatious pervert]], and [[AnythingThatMoves doesn't mind guys or girls]]. However, [[GirlOnGirlIsHot art of her with the other female characters is much more common]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'', due to being about ninety percent fandom and possessing official character art that... leaves much to be desired. Oddly enough the majority of drawings are fairly true to the characters (young girls are drawn like young girls, older women are drawn like older women etcetera), though more bizarre interpretations are certainly not absent.

* ''Franchise/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'': With humanizations of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the original show]] being popular with the fandom, having a spinoff with human characters as the ''baseline'' tends to lend itself to this. Sunset Shimmer in particular gets a ''lot'' of this, with even non-sexual fanart of her tending heavily to portray her as extremely attractive.

** Since the show began there has been lots of artwork of the main characters as humans, and said drawings frequently make them look sexy. In fact, if Derpibooru is to be believed, only half of the humanized fan art is "safe" and most of that still feature good looking humans. Hasbro eventually released [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls a humanized spinoff movie]] that they initially claimed was inspired by the wealth of fan art. Before Equestria Girls, humanized fan art was generally synonymous with low key or explicit self fanservice as a significant portion of the fandom still find sexualizing cartoon horses to be full of squick.
