However, this state won't necessarily last long. One (or more) of the characters is going to end up transformed into the unofficial fandom sex object (or at least made [[AdaptationalAttractiveness far more attractive in fanart]]). If they were originally [[HollywoodHomely ugly]], they'll be made [[{{Bishonen}} achingly beautiful]] in fanart. If they were originally cartoony and flat, expect them to pick up [[SheIsAllGrownUp curves]]. They may become the [[LauncherOfAThousandShips target of shipping]]. The fans have decided to instigate '''[[TitleDrop Self-Fanservice]]'''. The targets of this can vary--in a cast without LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, this can happen to one of the primary [[TheOneGuy male]]/[[TheSmurfettePrinciple female]] characters simply because they're there. It can happen to [[DracoInLeatherPants villains]], because EvilIsSexy. And if your cast has a good [[TheWoobie woobie]], the angst factor may draw fans in.

May lead to or be caused by an EnsembleDarkhorse or a DracoInLeatherPants. A leading cause of the childhood-scarring properties of RuleThirtyFour. Compare PerverseSexualLust. When it's an adaptation that ups a plain character's sexiness, it's AdaptationalAttractiveness (which, incidentally, can be a catalyst for this trope). Despite the name, not related to being DistractedByMyOwnSexy.

* The [[http://davidkawena.deviantart.com/gallery/#Disney-Heroes Disney Heroes]] fanart collection by davidkawena definitely counts. Particularly the Peter Pan one. Here's the princess version of this: [[http://steevinlove.deviantart.com/gallery/23384510 Defenders of the Enchanted Kingdom WIP]].

Added DiffLines:

* Shigeo usually gets turned from a fairly plain looking boy with a bowl cut to a youthful, adorable child in ''Manga/MobPsycho100'' art. Reigen usually gets dialed up from "normal" to "breathtaking hunk in a nice suit" to match. The strangest case would probably have to go to Dimple; while he's merely a green wisp in canon, fans near-universally portray him in the body of the security guard he possessed during the Scar arc, though he's given the {{Biseinen}} treatment for good measure.

** However, Ash, Gary, Drew, Paul, Kenny, Cilan, and Clemont also have their share of fangirls as well, even Tracey has some. (Tracey usually does match his description and characterization, though.) Oddly, the only main character without hoards of fangirls is probably Brock. Fanart of the boys usually has them looking mostly like their canon versions, though aged-up fanart has a high chance of presenting everyone as tall and slightly muscular (with Gary and Paul usually being taller than Ash).

In ''Sun and Moon'', however, Ash is usually drawn smaller and cuter than his teammates due to his design in that season looking younger and more boyish compared to how he looked in ''X and Y''.

* ''Anime/OsomatsuSan'' fanart usually changes the boys from their goofy, cylindrical selves to practically black-haired {{Palette Swap}}s of their F6 counterparts with lighter versions of their original personalities. [[http://i.imgur.com/GS1lm5Y.jpg Case in point.]] For the fans that don't, their bodies suddenly gain more detail and definition than they originally had (Karamatsu having a toned build, Ichimatsu being out of shape with a prominent butt, Jyushimatsu hiding tons of muscle under his hoodie, etc.)

* If you took a look at fanart for ''Manga/FateApocrypha'''s Rider of Black, you would find that his [[DudeLooksLikeALady androgynous-bordering-on-girly looks]] gets amplified to outright "female save for that ''one'' body part" levels, curves and all.

* Remaining on the topic of {{Disney}}, this also gets applied to WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse. Yes, ''that'' Mickey Mouse. He's drawn by fanartists as a slim, tall, sexy {{Bishonen}}. One artist in particular is popular for drawing more PettingZooPerson-esque and attractive [=AUs=] of Mickey, Minnie, and Oswald.

** Several artists try to give the characters differing body types in both human and horse form. Expect Applejack to be the tallest of her friends and decently muscular. This however is more often done out of making her seem more realistic (especially by those who see the Apple's as having Draft horse in them) instead of outright fanservice.

Added DiffLines:

** Mrs. Maheswaran has at best a slight bust and a little bit of a butt, and no real definition between where her hips end and her legs begin besides her clothes. Yet all fanart makes her incredibly busty and gives her an ImpossibleHourglassFigure.

** The canonical eternal child [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Saria]] is sometimes given an AgeLift by fan artists... with all that entails.

** 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"]].

** 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.
** Fukase's almost visceral left side of his face tends to get toned down to a couple of strange marks around his fully red eye (and even that can be toned down to just a red iris). Though his boxart makes him look a bit off, fanart tends to turn it into CreepyCute or makes him outright cute as a button due to his design looking around Len's age.

** The Pines twins are often given older or more enhanced designs in fan art.

to:

** The Pines twins are often given older or more enhanced designs in fan art. In fact, one popular AU has the twins explicitly be referred to as as the most beautiful/handsome youngster in Gravity Falls. (Granted, that AU also had the twins switch places with Gideon, but it still applies since it runs on EvilIsSexy logic and Gideon remained relatively the same.)
