* ''VideoGame/Injustice2'': In some match interactions, ComicBook/TheJoker expresses the interest of making ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}, ComicBook/PowerGirl, ComicBook/PoisonIvy and ComicBook/BlackCanary as his "molls", but they are all absolutely revolted by him for many, ''many'' valid reasons. He is the [[HateSink one character that literally every one else in the game hates]] (including [[EvenEvilHasStandards other supervillains]])

* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', Jerin is terrified of the prospect of having to marry the very ugly Brindle sisters, though not because they have expressed much interest in him, more because Jerin's sisters are courting Balin Brindle, and in their culture, it is most likely they will want to swap him for Balin. Subverted in that Jerin has ^reason^ to be terrified - he lives in a matriarchal society in which female rapists seem to exist in much higher numbers than in the real world, and since the sisters will have an advantage in numbers, trying to fight back would be futile.

** Along with Riddle, each of the main trio has one. Though none of them are physically unattractive; it is mainly their personalities. Harry has Romilda Vane, who stalks Harry and at one point gave him cauldron cakes laced with love potion, which Ron ate with tragic results. Ron, in a slight subversion, has an Abhorrent Admirer in his ''girlfriend''. At first he returns her affection, but soon finds that he's becoming more and more frightened of her, and her displays of affection gets more and more crazy. Hermione has the incredibly attractive and talented, but slightly deranged and QUITE egotistical Cormac [=McLaggen=] following her. Being a nerd, she isn't really blinded by his attractiveness, and sees him as the horrible, arrogant person he is.

* In the second Literature/{{Emberverse}} trilogy, a persistent and ScarilyCompetentTracker successfully tracks Ritva and Mary Havel. In single combat with Ritva, he finds her ferocity and competence exciting, and makes several ''very'' suggestive comments. For her part, she thinks he's weird and gangly and needs to make a closer acquaintance with bathing. ''Much'' later in the series they meet again; she's with her fiance and he's on his home turf, and he shows much better manners (though he has no regrets for his earlier actions).[[note]]Probably the result of NoSocialSkills due to his having grown up in the wilderness with mostly adolescent (or younger) boys for company; while not a true TeenageWasteland outsiders note that there are some significant gaps in the group's education as a whole.[[/note]]

* This was the original role of Gravel Gerty in the ''ComicStrip/DickTracy'' comic strip; even grotesque villain the Brow was repulsed by Gertie's affections. She eventually met and married the equally grotesque B.O. Plenty, though B.O. was never used as an Abhorrent Admirer, just as a side villain and then a comic-relief hillbilly. Naturally B.O. and Gertie's daughter, Sparkle, [[TheUglyGuysHotDaughter is a stunner]].
* Sea Hag was this to Wimpy in Thimble Theatre, ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}'s original comic strip. Wimpy wasn't attracted to her but he would have make-out sessions with her if it meant free food. She could use magic to make herself look more attractive, but unless she was feeding Wimpy he couldn't care less. In a comic book that depicted Popeye and Olive Oyl's wedding written decades later by Peter David, the Sea Hag caught the bouquet at the ceremony. Turning to Wimpy so they could be the next to marry, he ran for the hills. She chased after him.

** Mindy could count, however she is kind of an odd case in that she spends all of her time crushing after Peter but he remains more or less unaware of it (meanwhile, her friend keeps telling her that it's no good). It's not so much that she's unattractive, as he already has a girlfriend. It all comes to an end after she winds up going to prom with Peter's friend Steve and both hit it off very well

** First is Sadie Hawkins, A homely spinster at 35, she has a wealthy father who invented "Sadie Hawkins Day", on which women could propose to men. The character was so popular that the tradition caught on in real life, and outlived the strip character's fame entirely in the form of Sadie Hawkins dances. Also, the Sadie Hawkins strips always featured an abundance of abhorrent admirers, chasing their prospective husbands.

* Played with in ''[[ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational Justice League Europe]]'' with Crimson Fox's ongoing sexual harassment (really, there's no better description) of ComicBook/CaptainAtom. Interestingly, Crimson Fox is drop-dead gorgeous (and has [[PowerPerversionPotential pheromone-based mental manipulation powers]] to boot). It's really the fact that she comes on ''very'' strongly, and that she makes is blatantly clear that she is only interested in him physically and could not care less about his feelings.

** ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'': [[spoiler:Worldkiller-1 -a body-snatcher enemy which is an alien, sentient goo-]] is this to the titular heroine. Although it isn't interested in Supergirl romantically, it will not stop talking about wanting her body and them being made for each other, making Supergirl sick.

** ComicBook/PowerGirl had to contend with Vartox, an alien superhero from the planet Valerion who sought to seduce her and [[OnlyYouCanRepopulateMyRace breed a new population for his planet after they were hit with a sterilization bomb]]. While she was repulsed by him and unwilling to take up this tremendous task, she did help him find a way to cure his people though made clear she had no romantic interest in him.

* An LGBT example: Sanae of ''Manga/ShinryakuIkaMusume'' is actually quite pretty, but Ika herself sees her as this.
-->'''Sanae''': IKA-CHAN! (Ika smacks Sanae with her hair/tentacles.)

** Shinobu has one too: Soban of Busumetsu High, who besides being the boss of a delinquent gang, is GiantMook-sized and a most extreme {{Gonk}} even by [[Creator/RumikoTakahashi Takahashi standards]]. A running gag is how much he has trouble acting like a human being and not an animal (toss him a ball, he'll play with it like a tamed seal). He does little beyond charge at Shinobu yelling: "Shinobu-saaaan! SUKI DAAAA!!!!" Thankfully, Shinobu is [[WaifFu even stronger]] than Soban and usually sends him flying.

* With regards to the Transsexual variant mentioned above, fook[=/=]ComicBook/{{Viz}} occasionally featured a strip whose protagonist was cursed with the power of being a "Tranny Magnet". Women with facial hair (or men in dresses) just wouldn't leave him alone. He got no attention at all from real women, of course.
