* Many fans didn't like Taku Komori cutting his hair during his route in [[VideoGame/TokimekiMemorialGirlsSide Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side 2]], and feel that he looked better with long hair.

* In the first season of ''[[RuPaulsDragRace RuPaul's Drag Race]]'', the {{drag queen}}s were tasked with giving glamorous makeovers to a group of tomboyish female martial artists. The challenge ended up being ''very'' lopsided since there were maybe two {{Brawn Hilda}}s; the rest were already fairly attractive and simply needed help with makeup and walking in heels. Needless to say, when Rebecca Glasscock won the mini-challenge and was tasked with choosing her own and the others' partners, she picked the prettiest one for herself and the most challenging one for her rival Shannel.

* 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 dye jobs 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.

* While on the subject of WWE Divas, [[Wrestling/BellaTwins Nikki Bella]] got breast implants in 2012 because she was unhappy with her figure. Many fans are upset because she no longer looks like her twin sister Brie, and since most women in professional wrestling have breast implants, it was admirable that they did not have them. However, there are others who are fine with it for [[BuxomIsBetter obvious reasons]]. Nikki also opted to start weight training, developing a more muscular physique than Brie. This choice is divisive for [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon two]] [[AmazonianBeauty conflicting]] reasons.

* 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]]. ''inFamous'' fans hated the new Cole so much that Sucker Punch [[AuthorsSavingThrow changed him back to his old look]] before it was too late.

* Music/LilKim somehow managed to go from "90's Sex Symbol" to "Japanese Sex Bot" with her plastic surgeries. Just compare the photo on her TV Tropes page to...[[http://www.gettyimages.com/event/marc-jacobs-fall-2017-show-arrivals-700002903?esource=SEO_GIS_CDN_Redirect#rapper-lil-kim-attends-the-marc-jacobs-fall-2017-show-at-park-avenue-picture-id635664808 this]]. What's worse is that her onslaught of alterations came ''after'' a time period in the 2000's where she had decided to lay off the colorful wigs and {{stripperiffic}} outfits she was known for in the 90's in favor of a (relatively) natural appearance.

* Music/MariahCarey fans have long been divided on whether she was more beautiful before or after getting plastic surgery in the mid-90's. And that's ''before'' you delve into the "ButNotTooBlack" implications, since many argue that her surgeries shaved away her African features and emphasized the European ones.

This often applies to real life celebrities getting plastic surgery, with many fans saying they preferred the old face over the new, especially if the celeb in question was already considered attractive to begin with. Whatever flaws they had--including signs of aging--simply made them look like a human being as opposed to an artificial doll of perfect beauty, which tends to [[UncannyValley make viewers uncomfortable]] more often than not. It can even affect their work if they get rid of whatever facial quirks made them so distinct in the first place, as Jennifer Grey from ''Film/DirtyDancing'' found out the hard way.

* Music/MichaelJackson. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment That is all.]] Though not everything was his fault, considering that he had vitiligo (the disorder that caused his skin to turn pale), lupus and various other health problems that contributed to his radical changes in physical appearance. Few will deny though that he got carried away with plastic surgeries though; for reference, [[http://awesomejelly.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Gr6fyhYC7Sk.jpg here]] is a collage documenting his appearance over the years.
