* ''Series/FamilyMatters'': Steve Urkel had a machine that turned him into Stefan Urquel, a sexier version of himself who was a smooth ladies' man without a hint of nerdiness. Later Stefan became permanent courtesy of Urkel cloning himself and using the clone to make the permanent Stefan.

* ''Series/FamilyMatters'': Supreme nerd Steve Urkel had is in love with one of the other main characters Laura, but his nerdiness and forwardness repulses her. He creates a machine that turned him into utilizing a concotion he calls "Boss Sauce" to become Stefan Urquel, a sexier version of himself who was a smooth ladies' man without and just as smart as Steve (though it was subtly implied Steve was just a hint of nerdiness. little bit smarter). However, the first time usage also had Stefan be a world-class jerk. Later iterations had Steve perfect the formula so Stefan would retain Steve's positive qualities like his niceness and even attempted becoming Stefan permanently. Later Stefan became permanent courtesy of Urkel cloning his own man when Steve cloned himself and using Laura decided to use the clone to make the permanent Stefan.become Stefan. Stefan himself addresses Steve as "the man who created him."

* ''MeruPuri'': Aram is under a curse that causes him to age up to a teenager when exposed to the dark, likewise changing him from a cute boy to {{Bishonen}}. Of course, to the girls in the manga, this might be viewed as a CursedWithAwesome ability. * ''DNAngel'': Daisuke changes into Dark, a [[TheCharmer suave]], TallDarkAndHandsome, older looking PhantomThief who is the heart throb of most of the ladies, except for Riku, who prefers Daisuke. * In ''YuYuHakusho'', Koenma (usually in the form of an infant with a pacifier) is able to take on an older, more {{Bishounen}} appearance. Admittedly, an older more bishounen appearance with a pacifier, but its the thought that counts. * In ''DGrayMan'', the [[BigBad Millennium Earl]] normally uses a goblin-like form but occasionally takes on a normal human form. * In ''TenchiMuyo'' [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Really 20,000 Years Old]] Washu Hakubi normally looks like a young teenager, and she pulls a fast one on Tenchi by unexpectedly transforming into her adult form to seduce him which is, needless to say, much more well endowed. The "alter ego" is her true form, but she's spent most of life in the younger form because she long ago decided that adult society was just too screwed up for her to want any part of.

* ''TenjouTenge'' has Maya Natsume, who actually inverts this trope. Her real form is that of a voluptuous young woman, but she spends most of her time is spent in the form of a young girl, making most people think it is her regular form.

* In ''ZettaiKarenChildren'', there's a HospitalHottie who also happens to be a powerful [[PsychicPowers Esper]] with powers of illusion. It's eventually revealed that her perky-and-pretty appearance is ALSO an illusion, which she maintains whenever anyone's around - underneath it, she's got a face straight out of a ''Film/HammerHorror'' movie - think 'Frankenstein' more than 'Dracula'.

* Superman sometimes falls into this, particularly in the earlier ages, with his Clark Kent persona wearing mild-mannered clothing, general weak posture, and self-effacing personality, contrasting Superman's tight clothing, powerful stance, and determined attitudes.

* This was a main plot point in both versions of ''TheNuttyProfessor''. In both versions, the titular professor invents a way to change him from a nerdy looking fellow in the original film (and a rather overweight guy in the remake) into a smooth ladies man. The original even concluded with [[spoiler: the titular professor coming clean to a large group of people while he lets the formula wear off. There are no cuts, and both the professor and his alter ego were played by Jerry Lewis, so the transformation is almost entirely just Lewis ''changing his physical mannerisms'' and putting on a pair of glasses.]] * Anne Bowman from ''PsychoBeachParty'' (Chicklet's SplitPersonality) looks the exact same during her scenes but her confidence and behaviour, using her body language, makes her much more of a sex object than Chicklet's shy and Tomboy-behaviour. In-Universe, that is.

* The ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' episode "The Tale of the Dark Dragon" had two students taking a special serum that made them temporarily into their "true" selves (more good looking, confident etc). Once they were able to accept their deep psychological issues, the transformation became permanent.

* ''{{Series/Jekyll}}'': Most people seem to consider Tom Jackman's [[EvilIsSexy alter-ego Mr.Hyde to be considerably sexier]] than Jackman, with even two lesbian characters agreeing that he's hot. Katherine Reimer (Jackman and Hyde's assistant) is seemingly the only person who considers Jackman better looking than Hyde.
