* Snow White and "Bigby" Wolf in ''ComicBook/{{Fables}}'': she's a fairy-tale princess, he's, well, the Bid Bad Wolf. Of course, it helps that she's actually an iron-willed political leader ("You dumb bastards! I'm Snow White! I run Fabletown, and I'm never outgunned!") and that he can take on human form.

* ''Film/XMen2'' has a ShipTease between the [[WhiteHairedPrettyGirl beautiful]] [[DarkskinnedBlond Storm]] and the Demon-esque mutant ComicBook/{{Nightcrawler}} who is blue, scaly with MoreTeethThanTheOsmonds. In a slight subversion, he is the [[NiceGuy kind]] and [[NonActionGuy gentle pacifist]] [[spoiler: when he's not BrainwashedAndCrazy that is]], whilst she is more likely to [[ActionGirl kick some serious ass]] [[MamaBear if she feels her fellow mutants are in the slightest danger]].
* The movie "The Polar Bear King" is another example, though it doesn't completely fit the trope. King Valemon, a king who has been placed under a curse by a sorceress he refused to marry, was turned into a polar bear and told he must [[spoiler:marry within seven years]] to be human again. [[spoiler:He becomes human temporarily at night, but only if his face is not seen. If it IS seen, he'll be trapped in the curse forever.]]

* The characters [[WesternTerrorists Adam Taurus]] and [[BadassBookworm Blake Belladonna,]] of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', are based on those on the original fairytale, and the series references the Disney movie at least once. A variation on the trope in both are physically attractive, but Blake dislikes Adam's BloodKnight tendencies and casual murder of innocents...and Adam doesn't really care what she thinks. [[spoiler:This prompts her to abandon him. When they meet again, he is ''[[IfICantHaveYou not]]'' happy with her.]]
** As it turns out Blake plays as both beast and beauty. Her [[BashBrothers partner]] Yang Xiao Long is thematically Goldilocks and the 'yellow beauty' to Blake's 'black beast' in appearance, but this is reversed in their fighting style (Yang is a punch people across the room type while Blake uses a more precision based [[SwissArmyWeapon pistol-chain-scythe-thing]]).
** Blake's meeting and subsequent ShipTease with Sun again makes her the beauty to a beast.

* 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."
