* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': The UglyCute Helga Pataki is often drawn is being a few years older and completely gorgeous. her BigOlUnibrow will often be replaced with regular brows, her hair will be down and she will have [[ShesAllGrownUp grown]] in certain areas. Arnold will likewise be taller, his hair will be slicked back and he will wear more appropriate clothing.

* Characters from ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' find themselves subject to this quite a bit. [[TheFaceless Perpetually]] [[MaskPower masked]] Oki is invariably assumed to be {{Bishonen}} under the disguise and tiny, [[TheNapoleon Napoleon]] Issun usually ends up as a cute boy. The most notable example has to be the protagonist, Amaterasu. In the game, she's a nonanthropomorphic wolf. In fanart... well, [[http://kaze-hime.deviantart.com/art/Okami-83412801 maybe]] [[http://oreo-the-artist.deviantart.com/art/Okami-73020562 you]] [[http://kaze-hime.deviantart.com/art/Okami-45412844 should]] [[http://kaze-hime.deviantart.com/art/Okami-Amaterasu-84283977 just]] [[http://draa.deviantart.com/art/Okami-Amaterasu-65889723 see]] [[http://ryo-hakkai.deviantart.com/art/Amaterasu-90056462 for]] [[http://ferazhin.deviantart.com/art/okami-73302928 yourself]]. (It is true that the wolf isn't Amaterasu's original form and that one character sees her as an attractive young woman, but the player doesn't get to see this, so it still counts as an example.)* ''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.

** [[VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards Ribbon]] is usually made into a StatuesqueStunner, even though she is about Kirby's height (6 inches) in-universe, if not slightly shorter.

** Blaze the Cat is quite a prominent target of this. FanArt tends to give her a humanoid body and greatly expand her bust size. Even when the rest of the cast are normal.

** Blaze the Cat is quite a prominent target of this. FanArt tends to give her a humanoid body and greatly expand her bust size. Even when the rest of the cast are normal. Especially notable in that, not only does she have as flat a chest as most of the guys in her design, WordOfGod has said that she's [[ACupAngst not happy with this]].

*** A similar case with Thailand whose body muscle (as shown in HetaliaBloodbath2010) is kinda normal, is buffed up in [[http://www.zerochan.net/930966 fan]] [[http://www.lolibaka.com/beta/post/show/256814 art]]} Then again, these arts often go by the {{fanon}} of him being into Muay Thai (the national Thai sport), which requires any practitioner to have rather heavy musculature.

* PBS is not exempt. Just look up WesternAnimation/WordGirl on Website/DeviantArt, and you're sure to find that Becky's often been.... um, ''enhanced''. And then there's the pairing pics.... (It doesn't help that the two most [[FanPreferredCouple popular]] pairings are [[DatingCatwoman Becky]][[FoeYay /]][[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Tobey]] and [[{{Lolicon}} Becky]][[TeacherStudentRomance /]][[MadScientist Two-Brains]].

** More surprisingly, [[TerribleTrio the Kanker Sisters]] also get a lot of this, [[http://niveus-diabolus.deviantart.com/art/Marie-Kanker-212579389 especially]] [[http://14-bis.deviantart.com/art/Trailer-Trash-208760185 Marie]], who's arguably the most attractive of them to start with (she's got bad teeth and ... either black eyes or way too much eyeshadow ... but other than that she's not drawn terribly differently from Nazz, who's considered in-show to be quite the hottie).

* 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.

* Mary Lee Walsh/[[SdrawkcabName Slaweel Ryam]] in ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'' is an old witch with long gray hair and a horned gold helmet, but fan art usually portrays her as a young sexy woman with a short blonde bob cut and horns (the latter being because earlier artwork portrayed her with just the helmet). This is done largely to piss off the comic's creator, since she is based on the dean who expelled him from college.

*** As soon as Red and his rival Blue were revealed to [[TheBusCameBack return]] [[HesAllGrownUp as young adults]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', fans took note of his thicker build than [[{{Bishounen}} Blue]], and Red got hit with a second wave of this; while his official art already shows him as a rather well-built, budding {{Hunk}} with sharper features than would be expected from his home region, and in fact none of the muscles on anywhere but his neck are particularly defined in said art and his 3D model looks rather scrawny; fanart often exaggerates his muscles to anywhere from straight-up Hunk to outright {{Bara}} levels.

In fact, none of the muscles on anywhere but his neck are particularly defined in his official art, it and his 3D model often looking scrawny in comparison to fan depictions. Less commonly, Adult!Blue also sometimes gets gratuitous muscle added onto him, despite being a more thinly-built {{Bishounen}}.



** The Hex Maniac trainer class in Generation VI is usually drawn with very large breasts despite her versus character art showing her with a much more moderate bust. [[YoureDrinkingBreastMilk This is most likely due to a certain Hex Maniac who sells Moomoo milk to the player character in Pokemon X & Y.]]

** This is in fact somewhat common for fanart of the protagonists and rivals in general, which may draw them to look way older than they are in canon; though Red definitely gets it the worst, it's not uncommon to see overly pretty Ethan's, Blue's, Silver's, Leaf's, Brendan's, Hilbert's and Hilda's that look like they're 20 years old. Ethn is often given gold eyes despite them being gray in canon, which may be due to ''Manga/PokemonAdventures''.

Ethn is often given gold eyes despite them being gray And just like their anime counterparts, the female main characters also get a huge helping of this, especially involving bust size, if not even more so. This can be particularly noticeable on the very flat-chested "Selene"/"Moon" of ''Sun''/''Moon'', more commonly in canon, which may be due to ''Manga/PokemonAdventures''.pre-release fanart since her official age of 11 wasn't revealed yet.

*** She's ditched the helmet for Dawn of War III. While somewhat attractive, her face is longer and sharper then a human's and thus looks, appropriately, a bit alien.
