* In the BridgetJones series, there were two books where Bridget got down to her goal weight of 116 lbs. from her much maligned 125-138 lbs.; in both instances, it was remarked by people who knew Bridget (and consider her reasonably attractive) that she looked very ill and even remarked about [[BuxomIsBetter how diminished her breasts look]]. Granted even after all this, Bridget still aches to be thin.

* It's a plot point twist where we discover who Princess Zelda is and not a proper makeover so it serves as more of a visual cue than an intentional makeover, and for that reason wouldn't be this except that the in-game reaction in [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The Wind Waker]] is [[spoiler:that Tetra is]] much prettier as Zelda. Many feel she looked better as [[spoiler:Tetra the pirate girl]]. It's more the in-game reaction that evokes this trope, because it's not meant to be an actual makeover, but merely [[TheReveal a revelation]]. But then again, there was no need to have her clothes change from [[spoiler: her cute pirate outfit]] to a typical Princess Zelda dress since only the identity was revealed, but we guess a text revelation isn't as dramatic.

** Midna in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' tends to get similar reactions to her more humanoid "true form", with people finding her initial implike design [[UglyCute cuter]], more unique, and conveying more of her sassy appeal. Even on porn sites, artwork of imp Midna outnumbers artwork of her true form about ten to one.

* Music/MariahCarey fans have long been divided on whether she looked better before or after her plastic surgery. And that's ''before'' you delve into the "ButNotTooBlack" implications, since she looked more ethnic before the surgery.

* gay.com had some kind of makeover special in collaboration with ''Out'' magazine. For one of the guys, he was an average joe in flannel and was reasonably handsome in his "before" pic. Meanwhile, his "after" pic put him in hideously pretentious [[TheFashionista fashionista]] clothing and his hair had about five gallons of product in it.

* Mildred Hubble of ''TheWorstWitch'' gives herself a radical makeover in the first episode of the spin off ''Weirdsister College'' that involves cutting off her GirlishPigtails. The other characters make a big fuss about how much better she looks except she gave herself an extremely frumpy hairstyle that made her look like she was in her 30s. She tidied herself up a bit towards the end of the series but most fans still preferred her with pigtails.

* Any wrestler known for having long hair that gets it cut short can inspire this reaction. Wrestling/TheUndertaker is one such example. He has cut his hair short several times over his career, but he has always grown it back out. Wrestling/{{Edge}} also cut his hair short after retiring, but as of 2017 has grown it long again. Some wrestlers, such as Wrestling/DiamondDallasPage, Wrestling/{{Christian}} and Wrestling/TripleH, are agreed to look better with short hair than long hair.

* Cole [=MacGrath=] in ''Videogame/{{inFamous}}'' had a buzz cut and PermaStubble, but in pre-release footage of [[Videogame/{{inFamous 2}} the sequel]] he was redesigned with hair and a thicker beard, which made him look too much like [[Videogame/{{Uncharted}} Nathan Drake]]. Fans hated the new Cole so much that Sucker Punch [[AuthorsSavingThrow changed him back to his old look]].

* Wrestling/DolphZiggler had a brief period in 2011 where he cut all his blond hair short and switched to some more muted trunks. Vickie Guerrero called this "new and improved", but the result made him look like TheGenericGuy.[[note]]The change wasn't entirely by choice, as he had to cut his hair off due to the constant dying ruining it[[/note]] It was unanimously agreed that the change was ill-thought out and he re-bleached the hair as soon as it got long enough.

* As an inverse of the above, the short-haired, clean shaven Wrestling/AJStyles grew long hair and a beard in 2013. His "Soccer mom" hairstyle has become big-time SnarkBait in the fandom and many wish he'd cut it short again.

* Music/MichaelJackson. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment That is all.]] Though not everything was his fault considering that he had vitiligo, lupus and various other health problems. Few will deny that he got carried away with plastic surgeries though.
