->''Ahh...it's been so long since I've had a body. Eat your hearts out, ladies!''
-->-- '''Amazon Pandora''', ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising''

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 ''Anime/RanmaOneHalf'' 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 ''Anime/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 she [[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]].
* In the last episode of ''Anime/ExcelSaga'', the first thing that Excel does when she finds herself in the body of her partner Hyatt is to feel herself up while naked... [[FanDisservice And she promptly starts coughing up enormous amounts of blood and shriveling up into a mummy.]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* An issue of ''ComicBook/SpiderGirl'', complete with mirror.
-->'''Araña:''' 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 ComicBook/{{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 1984}}'': Dana's possession by Zuul.
* In ''Film/TheHidden'', 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 ''Film/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.
* A downplayed and male example in ''Film/{{Selfless}}'': After being put in the body of a younger man, Damien's montage of learning to adjust to the new body is intercut with a scene of him slowly walking to a mirror and admiring his new, youthful appearance.
* ''Film/ThirteenGoingOnThirty'': A non-evil example. Jenna at one point squeezes her adult body's breasts, calling them "incredible"

[[folder: Literature ]]
* In ''Literature/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.
* In ''[[Literature/TheVampireChronicles Tale of the Body Thief]]'', after trading bodies with Raglan, Lestat is equal parts disoriented and enchanted to have a living body again, particularly a young, attractive, and hormone-charged one -- at least until he has to take a leak for the first time in 200 years.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** In the new series 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 [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmUThdIIq-g leads to]] the following memorable line.
--->'''Cassandra''': Goodness me, I'm a man. Yum. So many parts. And hardly used.
** River Song immediately rushes out of the room to find a mirror. On discovering that she's got a great ass, River is delighted, declaring that she's going to wear lots of [[PaintedOnPants jodhpurs]] from now on.
** In the [[AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho Big Finish]] ''Series/DoctorWho'' audio "Cradle of the Snake", Tegan gets possessed by the Mara, which then decides to dress in skimpy black and flirt heavily with Nyssa.
* 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 ''Series/{{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.) In the original script, it's implied she's actually fondling herself underwater.
* ''Series/{{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]]
* ''Series/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. Parodied in the ''Magazine/{{Mad}}'' satire "Quandary Heap," when "Dam" can't see who's leaped into and asks he the Al parody to tell him - he thinks asks "Dam" how he feels about a big muscular guy with a tattoo and rugged beard, "Dam" likes it... but that describes who the ''woman'' who's he's leaped into is going to marry.
* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'':
** Occurred in 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.
** The same happens to Phoebe who is possessed by the spirit of a deceased convict, who can't help admiring her new body's beauty.
** And once again to Phoebe when a hideous demon cast a spell to switch bodies with her, who had always envied the attractiveness of others, and vanquish other demon's who threaten her livelihood. Immediately after her soul replaces Phoebe's she makes out with her office's appointed shrink, is caught by Piper twirling in front of a mirror and switches into a more revealing and tighter outfit.
* A non-villainous example occurs in ''{{Series/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".
* In one episode of ''Series/FreddysNightmares'', a con-artist medium gets trapped in a trance by Freddy during one of her schemes and he takes control of her body. He immediately strips her body down to her underwear, taunts her about it, and then spends the rest of the episode strutting around like that. He uses the partial nudity to distract a skeptic and a young model who came to speak to the con-artist and kills them both.

[[folder: Theatre ]]
* Variation in ''Theatre/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: Video Games]]
* Mettaton from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' (minus the GrandTheftMe part) when he turned into the flamboyant [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Mettaton EX]] after an [[SuperMode upgrade]], just in time for the premiere of his new TV show. During the fight against him, he constantly dances and poses [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Jojo]]-style, even when [[OnlyAFleshWound he loses his limbs]].
** There's also an inversion from Alphys, the creator of his EX body, when she mentions in her diary that she kept "[getting] really sweaty" [[DistractedByTheSexy for some reason]] when she was building it.
* In ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', the goddess Ishtar possesses [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Rin Tohsaka]] in order to be summoned as a Servant, though according to her it's more like she's [[SplitPersonalityMerge 70% Ishtar and 30% Rin]]. Ishtar says besides Rin's small breasts, she's gorgeous, and shows off by wearing a skimpy outfit.
-->'''Ishtar''': My original self was more glamorous, but this body is also not bad.
* [[TheDisembodied Pandora]] does this in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' after she becomes [[HotGod Amazon Pandora]], although in her case it's more like "Showing Off the ''Old'' Body" because this is what she used to look like before an accident in her backstory cost her it. Sufficient to say, she's ''very'' happy to have it back.

[[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?" This filler arc was ''[[AuthorAppeal also]]'' done by Creator/PhilFoglio.
* In ''Webcomic/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 ]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'':
** In one episode, the VillainOfTheWeek's contraption is something that allowed people to change their physical attributes by switching their own with someone else's. A really hideous older lady tries it out with Alex, and then walks away, checking out her new reflection in a mirror.
** In another, the VillainOfTheWeek runs an agency that kidnaps supermodels and uses a contraption that switches her body parts with other women's. First we see Clover's long, slender legs replaced with stout, muscular legs complete with wide-childbearing hips; then the brace-faced owner of the large legs gets her freckled complexion and frizzy red hair switched with Alex's sleek, raven bob and Sam's peaches-and-cream complexion and smile. Guess who walks off with a smug smile?
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', after being placed under a spell that causes her to turn human (rather than to stone) during the day, [[BigBad Demona]] takes a moment to preen outrageously when revealing this fact to Elisa. Considering how much Demona despises humans (and her reaction to having the spell placed on her in an earlier episode was initially one of rage and horror) this mostly seems to have been a way to mock Elisa rather than taking genuine pleasure in her new body, however attractive it may be.
* In a FreakyFridayFlip episode of ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'', Rebecca and Don Karnage end up swapping bodies after encountering an idol. After the swap, Karnage notes that he looks fabulous.
