* On ''DarkOracle'', this is the cause of NiceGirl Cally's relationship with SmugSnake and ex-BigBad [[EvilSorcerer Omen]]. Luckily, she's far from blind to his many, many failings, and calls him on them all, eventually leading to RedemptionEqualsDeath. Thoroughly averted by BigBadWannabe Vern, whose {{Goth}} look, [[LonersAreFreaks bad attitude]], and [[NoSocialSkills lack of social ability]] make him an outcast, completely unable to get a date.

** Depending on the writer, this is the definition of Comicbook/HarleyQuinn's attraction to SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker.

* Rather extreme example: Comicbook/HarleyQuinn in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' is [[MadLove crazy in love]] with ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker''. Even before he slowly takes her sanity, Dr Harleen Quinzel is attracted to the Joker. It's hard to get more "Bad Boy" than a sociopathic, mass-murdering clown...

** In the original trilogy, Leia Organa goes for Han Solo (a near-perfect storm of bad-boy beauty) over Luke Skywalker. Then, of course, we find out the true nature of Luke and Leia's relationship, and breathe a collective sigh about the [[SurpriseIncest "ewww" moment]] from which this trope has saved us. She still kissed him, though.

* In [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/93809/a-pleasant-surprise A Pleasant Surprise]]'', this trope is zig-zagged. It's an inferred reason that he has little experience with girls. An aversion of this trope is why he and his love interest get together.

* Wolverine also fits the bill. He has a seemingly endless amount of women after him, and he's a more straight-up bad boy.
** It's apparently genetic. Wolverine's son Daken has this as well. Both women and men are attracted to his bad boy status, even without him using his powers to seduce them.
** Logan's mother had an affair with scruffy, ugly, alcoholic and violent Thomas Logan. Her actual husband, John Howlett, was much more nice and TallDarkAndHandsome, but when the two die in the same incident, Logan's mother mourns Thomas, not John.

** It's played entirely straight in ''The Ember Island Players'', wherein Katara falls for Jet (who wipes out the town for her) and later Zuko. What she says about Jet is on the quotes page.
-->'''Player Katara''': Oh Jet, you're so ''bad''.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Daenerys swoons over the dashing badboy Daario even though she realizes that he's a murderous, opportunistic sellsword. On the other hand, she repeatedly fends off the advances of her devoted and loyal bodyguard Jorah because he's middle-aged, plain and not particularly exciting.
** Averted with Sansa. While she initially wanted Joffrey, who is ''[[TheCaligula very]]'' [[{{Sadist}} bad]], she was initially blind to his flaws and thought of him as a heroic prince.

Daenerys swoons over the dashing badboy Daario even though she realizes that he's a murderous, opportunistic sellsword. On the other hand, she repeatedly fends off the advances of her devoted and loyal bodyguard Jorah because he's middle-aged, plain and not particularly exciting.
** Averted with Sansa. While she initially wanted Joffrey, who is ''[[TheCaligula very]]'' [[{{Sadist}} bad]], she was initially blind to his flaws and thought of him as a heroic prince. However, though to be her ideal man one has to be a PrincelyYoungMan or KnightInShiningArmor, she later develops attraction to Joffrey's bodyguard who is best described as TheBrute (his first major action on pages is ''killing a thirteen years old boy'') and seems to find his "ferocity" thrilling.
