* Kerovan and Joisan, from ''[[Creator/AndreNorton The Crystal Gryphon]]'' (and its sequels). Although he never gets transformed to be less "different" -- they just go to live among people who won't be weirded out by his cloven hooves. For quite a while there, though, he had the attitude that "no fit mate for any human woman am I."

* DC's ''ComicBook/AngelAndTheApe'', a fairly obscure detective series from the late 1960s, avoided ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin only by virtue of the fact that Angel is her name, not a literal description. The ape, on the other hand...

Under at least one writer he was [[ComicBook/TheFlash Gorilla Grodd]]'s grandson.[[/note]]

* Gender inverted in the Myth/KingArthur legends, where the handsome Sir Gawain must marry Dame Ragnell, who is cursed into the form of the Loathly Lady, in order to gain the answer to the question "What do women want the most?". Interestingly, a kiss is able to break half the spell: she can be beautiful only by day or by night and Ragnell tells Gawain he can choose which it will be. The spell is only fully broken when Gawain givers her the choice instead, thus standing by the answer to the riddle which is that what women want the most is their own will.

* ''Literature/SenseAndSensibilityAndSeaMonsters'' features a subplot in which beautiful nineteen-year-old Marianne Dashwood gradually comes to love the much older Col. Brandon, who was cursed by a sea witch to have a writhing mass of tentacles hanging from his face, [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Davy Jones]]-style. (In [[Literature/SenseAndSensibility the original story]], Brandon was [[MayDecemberRomance simply much older]], so this trope doesn't apply there.)

* Hades and Persephone could also fit this trope -- though Hades is not always depicted as physically monstrous, he is the God of the Dead, which tends to give everyone else an aversion to him. And true, Persephone was kidnapped against her will, but still ends up Queen of the underworld. They're also one of the ''very few'' HappilyMarried pairs in the entire pantheon.

And by the usual standards of the Greek Gods Hades was actually quite fair.

* Played with in ''Anime/SpiderRiders'' with Buguese and Aqune. Even if Buguese is the most humanoid Insector, he's still not exactly... human. First, we have the setup of Aqune willingly staying in the Insector castle, giving up any better life she could have had. Aqune is the gentle, nurturing, empathetic one. She tries to see the good in everyone. Buguese is the brooding, cynical, angry one. Despite his hate for humans, it's very clear he has a soft spot for Aqune. [[spoiler: Freeing her is the last thing he does before confronting Mantid, which he expects will kill him.]]
