* ''Franchise/TheSims'' games act as a storytelling medium as well as a video game. Anyone can send stories to the official website accompanied by images from the game. Many, many of these stories consist of sims getting makeovers. Some are fine; a lot are unnecessary. A lot of them feature Maxis sims being redesigned so as to lose their distinctive quirky apperances. A particularly bad story featured only two or three images: A before shot of Gothically-dressed [[VideoGame/TheSims2 Lilith Pleasant]], and an after shot of her dressed in generic preppy clothing. Based on the outfit change alone, the narrator told us we were supposed to believe that all her family problems went away, too.

* While most of the character redesigns for ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'' were praised, this wasn't so for [[ButtMonkey Team Magma]] [[ProfessionalButtkisser Admin Tabitha]]. While his new personality wasn't criticized, the adaptions cause him to undergo AdaptationalUgliness, with the most glaring changes being slight hair growth, a significant weight gain despite being rather fit in the original adaption, ditching [[InTheHood his traditional]] [[SleevesAreForWimps getup]] for a clunkier one that really makes his weight stand out, and his eyes being constantly shut. It doesn't help that this stands out like a sore thumb in comparison to the other admins, all of whom underwent AdaptationalAttractiveness and for the most part have a few remnants of their past designs intact.

* Shaundi from the ''Videogame/SaintsRow'' series underwent a drastic change in appearance, voice and personality between her debut in ''Videogame/SaintsRow2'' and ''Videogame/SaintsRowTheThird''. Regarding her appearance, she wears more modest "upmarket" clothing, and loses her distinctive dreadlocks in exchange for a shorter prim ponytail. However, her new look was [[BrokenBase divisive]] at worst and it was the new ''personality'' (going from a ReallyGetsAround laid-back stoner chick into a tense, vengeful FauxActionGirl) that pissed off ''Saints Row'' fans more than the new look. ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'' rectifies the problem by giving an explanation to Shaundi's changes (her celebrity status and peer pressure caused her to lose interest in smoking, and Johnny Gat's death caused her to be much more angrier), making her less tense, and having a simulation of the older Shaundi appear many times in the game (complete with a MeetYourEarlyInstallmentWeirdness moment).

* Likewise the makeover in ''Film/{{Sabrina}}'', which consists entirely of a short haircut, as opposed to the cute ponytail that another character claims makes ''Audrey Hepburn'' look like a horse.

* This is exactly the intended effect in a ''[[Series/TheTwilightZone1959 Twilight Zone]]'' episode, "Number 12 Looks Just Like You", where everyone is required to get cosmetic surgery to make them look like identical models. One HollywoodHomely gamine, perhaps tomboyish for the day, shocks everyone and is sent to a psychiatrist when she questions whether the surgery is really necessary. [[spoiler: They end up performing the surgery against her wishes -- and she ends up [[{{Brainwashed}} very happy]] with the results.]] She also invokes it earlier, when she looks at a picture of her pre-surgery mother and thinks that she looked better that way. The mother, meanwhile, insists that she was "a fright" back then.
