* [[{{Badass}} Gilgamesh]] of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' is a fair-skinned, red-eyed, golden armor-wearing spiky haired blond {{Bishonen}} who happens to be an A-rank douchebag and firmly rooted in the villain camp. [[HiddenDepths He is given plenty of depth however, and though he is evil he has a clear set of morals.]]

* Made explicit in ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly''. All three characters are unscrupulous to some degree, but the most conventionally handsome character, Blondie, played by Creator/ClintEastwood, is "the Good," and the de facto hero. However, the villain of the film is the hawkish featured "Bad" and not "[[VillainProtagonist the Ugly]]," who is more of a LovableRogue.

Added DiffLines:

* The Kurosawa film ''{{Sanjuro}}'' inverts this with Chamberlain Mutsuta and Superintendent Kikui. Mutsuta is a good man whose face is compared to that of a horse, while the conniving Kikui is noticeably better looking.

* LightIsGood can be a perfect example for this trope.

Added DiffLines:

** This has changed in 6th Edition, which removes the Comeliness stat altogether. Instead, Players who want a character who looks significantly outside the norm can purchase Striking Looks, which can add to certain social skill rolls and abilities. Notably, Striking Looks includes not just unreal beauty, but unreal ugliness, a truly alien appearance, and just about any other kind of appearance, all with similar effects on mechanics (though different kinds of SL will apply in different circumstances).

Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', Benny and Charlotte turn this trope on their head. Benny ''looks'' intimidating to the point where his personal skill uses that to scare the enemies into dropping a couple stats, when in reality he's gentle, easily frightened and shy. Charlotte, on the other hand, is a total hottie who puts on a cutesy face to attract men but is actually a harsh, cynical {{Ladette}}. They're actually old friends and {{foils}} to one another, and they can get married if you pursue their supports.

* Other than the odd tchotchke made to cater to ethnic appeal, angels are always shown with flowing blonde hair, beatific bordering on vacant smiles, rosy to pure white skin and sparkling azure eyes. Never will you see one with pock marked skin, a big nose or even mouse brown hair. This [[OurAngelsAreDifferent interpretation]] is so common there's a [[AngelicBeauty trope]] for it. Made even more ridiculous since angels in ''Literature/TheBible'' [[EldritchAbomination look like the stuff of nightmares.]]

* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'': As a consequence of AdaptationalHeroism and AdaptationalAttractiveness, [[XMenFilmSeries/ProfessorCharlesFrancisXavier Charles Xavier]]'s good looks are emblematic of his good heart in the [[Film/XMenFirstClass First Class]] [[Film/XMenApocalypse trilogy]]. Even when his younger self is a BrokenBird in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', he's still an UnkemptBeauty, which means that his heroic side has merely been suppressed, not extinguished.

* Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/AliceInWonderland'' plays this trope straight. The White Queen is gorgeous and Alice is pretty as well, whereas the Red Queen is very strange-looking. But it also seriously subverts it with the Mad Hatter and [[spoiler: the Bandersnatch]]. And also Tweedle-Dee, Tweedle-Dum, and the March Hare. It's also worth pointing out that the Red Queen herself is aware of this trope, telling her sister at one point that she can't get her way for once just by blinking her "pretty eyes".
