[[caption-width-right:317: Someone likes her new toy.]]

The result of combining GrandTheftMe with EvilIsSexy. Any villain who possesses the body of the heroine (or any female, really) is contractually required to spend time posing in front of mirrors, wearing [[{{Stripperiffic}} scanty clothing]], and sometimes even [[ManIFeelLikeAWoman groping herself]]. This often occurs when the villain in question is herself female and has been without a normal body -- or at least an attractive one -- for an extended period of time.

Naturally, this is an opportunity for rampant {{Fanservice}}, to an even greater extent than the standard form of EvilIsSexy.

Compare ManIFeelLikeAWoman. This overlaps with PowerPerversionPotential. Contrast ShapeshiftingSeducer. Subtrope of LimbSensationFascination.

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* In the last ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'' OAV, a vengeful doll spirit swaps bodies with Akane and then tries to seduce/kill Ranma.
** The manga also featured a mirror spirit who, upon taking Ranma's female form, immediately barges out of the house in a tiny cocktail dress, ready to get it on with the next attractive guy she can find.
** In a bizarre instance of self-awareness, when female Ranma (posing as "Ranko") is forced to go bra-shopping with Nodoka and Akane, she gives up and tries on a few bras, posing to herself in the mirror and nodding appreciatively. [[WeirdnessMagnet Naturally]], this is when the sales attendant at the store chooses to trip and send hot tea flying into Ranma's booth.
* [[spoiler:Dante]] in [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the 2003 anime version]] of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' attempts to seduce her ex, [[spoiler: Hohenheim]], in this manner, [[spoiler: after taking over the body of Lyra, her beautiful maid and student]].
** And [[spoiler:his son Edward]]. Or rather, she tried to [[spoiler:preemptively seduce him by making him fall in love with Rose, the girl whose body she was planning on stealing next.]]
* When [[spoiler:Grace O'Connor]] [[NoTranshumanismAllowed downloaded herself]] into the new body of a combat cyborg in ''MacrossFrontier'', fondling her boobs (which were considerably bigger than her previous ones) was first thing she did.
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': [[spoiler: Empress Marianne does this when she enters C's World, doing a little posing, spinning, and curtsying. Slightly different from the normal application of this trope, as she wasn't testing out a new body, but getting used ''to her old one'', since she's been using a young girl as a SoulJar for a long time, and only in C's World can her detached spirit manifest its true form. Did I mention she's very hot and...did this to her son, Lelouch?]]
* Played for laughs in ''OnePiece'' when Bon Clay transforms into Nami and flashes Luffy, Usopp and Chopper. Nami was not amused. It happens again to her when her [[spoiler: and [[LoveableSexManiac Sanji]] [[FreakyFridayFlip switch bodies]]. [[HilarityEnsues Sanji takes great enjoyment of this]].]]
* Dio Brando from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' steals [[spoiler:Jonathan Joestar]]'s body in order to "live gorgeously forever." He then proceeds to spend a significant amount of time in said body wearing suggestive outfits (or just hanging around shirtless), feeling himself up, [[TheCasanova and having a crazy amount of sex]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* An issue of ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Girl}}'', complete with mirror.
-->'''Araņa''': What do you think of my sexy new body, Miguel?
* Sistah Spooky from ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'' did this after getting the perfect body from a DealWithTheDevil.
* In ComicBook/LesLegendaires, [[GodOfEvil Anathos]] was planning to reincarnate in female, elven protagonist [[ApocalypseMaiden Shimy]] as a way to come back on Earth. After he fails to this [[spoiler:and is forced to reincarnate in [[TheHero Danael]] instead]], he makes a hint toward this trope when [[spoiler:[[EyeScream burning Shimy's eyes]]]]:
--->'''Anathos''': Such a waste... I ''really'' wanted you to be my new incarnation, you know ?
* Claudine Renko AKA [[spoiler: Ms. Sinister]] does this prematurely in the second arc of {{X-23}}'s solo series. After capturing X-23, intending to [[GrandTheftMe steal her body]] in hopes that her HealingFactor will [[spoiler: prevent Mr. Sinister (whose personality is dormant in her body though periodically surfaces to take control)]] from permanently asserting himself and taking control of her, Renko expresses satisfaction that she'll be receiving a very attractive new body in return. Fortunately for Laura, [[spoiler: ''Mr.'' Sinister transfers his consciousness to her body first, but she ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome kicks him out]]'' and Renko is badly wounded during the resulting fight]].

[[folder: Film -- Live Action ]]

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'': Dana's possession by Zuul.
* In ''The Hidden'', the body possessing space alien villain starts out only possessing the bodies of men. The first time it possesses the body of a female stripper, it spends some time exploring the differences.
* In ''TheHotChick'', when Rob Schneider and Rachel [=McAdams=]' characters switch bodies, one freaks out and panics, the other gets a job as a stripper. Guess which is which.
* There's the not-at-all-gratuitous "alien learns to put on a bra" sequence in ''Film/{{Species}}''.
* There's a non-bodyswapping example in ''Film/{{Stardust}}'', where the witch Lamia is very happy with her youthified self, and strips off in front of a mirror to get a better look. Her sisters are there too, looking on in envious admiration.

[[folder: Literature ]]

* In ''SecondApocalypse'', Aurang gets to do this once.
* Aran'gar, alias [[spoiler:Halima, alias Balthamel]], from ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', a formerly male Forsaken who was reincarnated into a female body. S/he puts her cleavage to good use.
* In ''Literature/IWillFearNoEvil'', [[Creator/RobertAHeinlein Heinlein]] posits a brain transplant from a 95 year old man to a 23 year old, very pretty girl. At least at first, he (she?) spends time in front of the mirror admiring his new, female body.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "New Earth", Cassandra does it to both Rose:
--->'''Cassandra''': It's like living inside a bouncy castle!
** ... and, in a rare example with a male body (but no undoing of anything), the Doctor. Which [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCWcNPid-wY leads to]] the following memorable line.
--->'''Cassandra''': Goodness me, I'm a man. Yum. So many parts. And hardly used.
** Later on, in "Let's Kill Hitler", Melody regenerates into the body of Creator/AlexKingston, and promptly checks out [[BuxomIsBetter her breasts]], her butt, and [[EightiesHair her hair]]. After (it's implied) going off into another room to check out her butt in a mirror, she proudly announces that she's "going to wear ''a lot'' [[PaintedOnPants of jodhpurs]]!"
** A non-sexual version occurs in "The Doctor's Wife" as a FunnyBackgroundEvent with Idris touching and squeezing her face, then trying out expressions in the mirror until the Doctor gets annoyed and stops her.
*** And, of course, [[MrFanservice the Doctor does it after each regeneration]] starting with the new series.
** Another nonsexual version - the Fourth Doctor tries out facial expressions in the mirror on first seeing himself, and then, when asked to put on some clothes and get to work, has a CostumeTestMontage of truly dreadful {{Sexy Whatever Outfit}}s which he parades for the very unimpressed Brigadier. When he comes out in his usual outfit, the Brigadier concedes that it's close enough even though it involves a fifteen-foot scarf - it's not impossible that the whole scene was ObfuscatingStupidity and in-universe CensorDecoy, so the Brig would find the scarf acceptable.
** When the Sixth Doctor first sees himself in a mirror, he clearly thinks he's just the most gorgeous man ever, and flirts with his own reflection. He then dresses up in what he seems to think is [[SharpDressedMan an extremely sexy and fashionable outfit]] and strikes sexy supermodel poses for Peri in it. Shame it's actually [[ImpossiblyTackyClothes about the most horrible outfit ever]].
* Quite an entertaining scene in a ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' episode in which all the main characters switch bodies, and John in Aeryn's body starts examining it rather closely. Of course, Aeryn in someone else's body walks in. He tries to excuse himself by saying "I'm a guy!", and Aeryn threatens to break his legs (never mind that they're hers) if he checks out anything else. The really funny part comes at the end of the episode where, when John apologizes, Aeryn implies she, too, experimented. [[ADateWithRosiePalms In a rather hands-on manner]].
* In the ''{{Bottom}}'' episode "Hole", when faced with imminent death, Eddie has a spontaneous conversion to Buddhism so he can reincarnate:
-->'''Richie''': Wait, wait, wait, wait. Let me get this straight. You have taken the ancient wisdom of Buddhism and perverted it into a dastardly scheme whereby you take over the brain of a supermodel just so as you can get a quick ogle at her norks?
-->'''Eddie''': Yep! That's about the size of it!
-->'''Richie''': It's a bloody good plan, isn't it! Yeah, hey, it's got a lot going for it, this Buddhism thing! I think I'll come back as Dannii Minogue. Yeah! Yeah, and I'll get myself a job as a topless go-go dancer in a bar full of mirrors!
* After body-swapping with ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', one of the first things Faith does is take a long bath just to check out her "new home"; later, she acts flirtatious toward any male in sight. (Not that she didn't do similar things in her old body.)
* ''{{Smallville}}'':
** A rare male version happens when Lionel Luthor body-swaps with Clark.
** A more traditional example occurs when a gang of ancient evil witches possess the three lead females. The reaction of the witch who gets Lois is, "I'm ''gorgeous''! ''Look'' at these!"
* This tends to happen to Sam a lot in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. Meg's reaction to being in his body is to dramatically flex her muscles; she then spends the entire episode enjoying her handsome new body, "fine packaging" and all. It then happens to Sam ''two more times'' in season five, once with a teenager who wanted Sam's life, and once with [[spoiler:Lucifer]]
* ''QuantumLeap'' has a few more male versions. The "Evil Leaper" does this at one point; also, Sam looks appreciatively in a mirror when he is handsome hitman Frankie.
* Occurred in ''Series/{{Charmed}}'', episode 3x09 'Coyote Piper', where Piper is possessed by an ancient evil spirit (one of several over the shows' run). After modelling in front of the mirror in what's almost a dominatrix outfit, the spirit knocks Piper's husband Leo unconsciousness, then goes to Piper's High School Reunion she was holding at her club, and proceeds to do a sexy table-dance for the all men (and a few of the women) present on top of the bar. Barefoot. For about 5 minutes.
* A non-villainous example occurs in ''{{Dollhouse}}'' when Margaret (a middle-aged woman) is uploaded into Echo's younger body. She briefly feels her own breasts and jokes to Adelle about how they're now "pointing at the sky".

[[folder: Theatre ]]

* Variation in ''IntoTheWoods''. The witch had been transformed into an old crone body for a while, and after that curse is broken, she has a whole song in which she shows off her actual appearance, which is youthful and good looking.

[[folder: Web Comics ]]

* Seen above: ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has [[spoiler:the Other]] doing this to Agatha, starting around [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20060123 here]] and continuing intermittently through the end of Volume 6. (Consider that this is a [[spoiler: mother *ahem* appreciating her ''daughter's body'']] and [[BrainBleach wince]]. Judging from his expression, Tarvek agrees.)
* When Torg and Zoe switch bodies in a ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' [[http://sluggy.com/daily.php?date=030622 filler arc]], Torg shows off Zoe's body to the entire Internet via webcam. Zoe, upon getting her own body back and looking in her closet: "Care to explain why none of my clothes have been worn?"
** It should probably be pointed out that this filler arc was ''[[AuthorAppeal also]]'' done by PhilFoglio.
* In ''EerieCuties'', this is Nina's first action after borrowing Layla's body.
* The [[http://timeslikethis.com/?id=529 "Be Somebody"]] storyline in ''Webcomic/TimesLikeThis'' has Matt controlling a female robotic body and Bethany a male robot. [[http://timeslikethis.com/?id=535 Matt's thrilled about his newfound womanhood... Bethany, not so much.]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* In one episode of ''TotallySpies'', the VillainOfTheWeek's contraption was something that allowed people to change their physical attributes by switching their own with someone else's. A really hideous lady tried it out with Alex, and then the lady walked away, checking out her new reflection in a mirror.
* Blackarachnia's debut in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' mostly fits this. Though she isn't taking anyone's appearance in particular, she has just upgraded from a simple protoform. After her introduction, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XV2JWs9o7hc she can be observed doing random kicks and poses in the background while Megatron talks]].
* Not a full body, but Rarity's new wings in WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic
