* Puberty seems to favor the cast of ''VisualNovel/ClockZero'' ''a lot'' considering how ''gorgeous'' everyone is in the future. Nadeshiko gets this reaction by Nakaba in the DramaCD and in the bonus epilogue, while Madoka also gets this reaction from Nadeshiko [[spoiler: twice: as Bishop and]] as his adult self from Nadeshiko's present timeline ten years after the main plot has ended.

* In the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fanfic "Strained Reunions", a reclusive 38 year old Harry Potter is shocked to discover that the "drop dead sexy" young witch who "just showed up one day, announced she was going to have me whether I knew it or not, and hung around so much I eventually fell in love with her" is, in fact, Rose Weasley, daughter of his best friends from school, Ron and Hermione, whom he had last seen when she was only three years old. They end up happily married with children, much to her parents chagrin.

This is TruthInTelevision for many girls in their early teens, though it's not often addressed in TV or movies, where girls are absolutely ecstatic about their physical changes and the (male) attention it gets them. This can happen for a [[{{Stereotype}} variety]] of [[MostWritersAreMale reasons]].

* In ''[[DragonLance The Dragonlance Chronicles]]'', [[TheHero Tanis]] notices this after he pulls [[RebelliousPrincess Laurana]] down on top of him. Especially justified as he is a half-elf and she is a full elf, so he hit puberty at least a decade before she did. Also happens with Caramon and Tika. He remembers her as a little freckled brat and is stunned by what she's grown into ([[MostCommonSuperPower and what has grown onto her]], [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre if you know what I mean...]]) after he's been gone for five years.

* In ''[[Film/RushHour Rush Hour 3]]'', we meet Ambassador Han's daughter again after almost ten years. Carter mentions that they should get her a teddy bear, then he sees her and adds "or a bra!". Surprisingly though, for a film series about as bawdy as PG-13 can get, it doesn't play up her attractiveness very much beyond that.
* In ''She's Out of Control'', dowdy Katie gets a makeover where she gets contact lenses, a new hairdo at a professional hair salon, a new wardrobe, and her braces removed while her father is out of town. He returns to be shocked and horrified that Katie is now being chased by practically every teenaged boy.
* Norrington noticed this in Elizabeth in the first ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean''.

** Tránsito Soto was a rather ugly but charmingly plucky teen HookerWithAHeartOfGold when she befriended Esteban Trueba and he gave her some money so she'd make it in the city. Esteban found her again some years later and saw that, even with a tacky dress/hairstyle combo she had on, she looked much better. Each time they meet through their lives, Tránsito has grown further into her beauty [[spoiler: until the last time, where she's a very old and serious-looking MissKitty.]]

* In MarchenAwakensRomance, Koyuki and Ginta already had a ChildhoodFriendRomance, but when he returns from MAR Heaven, she is quite impressed to see that he's stronger, taller (courtesy of YearInsideHourOutside training) and doesn't need glasses anymore (the latter was due to the magic of MAR Heaven—his vision cleared the moment he got there).
