* Prevalent, if only subtly, in ''Franchise/WonderWoman''. Both pre- and post-Crisis the character tended to have WorldsMostBeautifulWoman as one of her Olympus-given powers, while most of her villains (especially Dr. Psycho) are the definition of {{Gonk}}. If she ''does'' come up against a beautiful female villain, DefeatMeansFriendship will often come into play, especially during [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks the Golden Age]].

On the other had, one of her [[ArchEnemy arch-enemies]] the God of War Ares, who is usually depicted as a sinister red-eyed armored figure whose evil children happen to look ugly because of their parentage, is revealed to be [[https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/0/6535/5822352-aresrebirth.png very handsome underneath]].
* In ''{{ComicBook/Reborn}}'', individuals are reborn in the afterlife in fantastical new forms depending on whether they are good or evil. For example, [[TheHeroine Bonnie]] turns into a [[MsFanservice young and voluptuous blonde woman]] upon dying of old age in the human world and ending up in the next one while her best friend Estelle turns into a [[StatuesqueStunner tall and beautiful fairy queen]]. On the other hand, evil people turn into Darklanders, who range from ugly to outright demonic: [[EvilOverlord Lord Golgotha]] (who used to be a serial killer on Earth) looks like a grey skinned demon and an AlphaBitch from Bonnie's high school becomes a cybernetic abomination.

** In ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' Ursula explicitly uses the form of a beautiful woman to trick Eric into falling for her instead of Ariel.
* In "The Emperor's New Groove", the villainess Yzma is old and unattractive. Throughout the movie he gradually learns humility after being turned into a llama by the vengeful Ysma. Even she learns humility at the end by being turned into a cute little kitten and is grudgingly forced to join the cub-scout-like children's group headed by Krunk, the assistant she used to boss around.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' mythology, this is played with by Dibella, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedric Divine]] Goddess of Beauty. She is the goddess of beauty and is one of the Divines, a group almost uniformly considered "[[GodIsGood good]]" (or at least benevolent) throughout Tamriel. However, some more conservative religious figures preach about the "charms of Dibella" with a SexIsEvil slant. Additionally, her worshipers have been known to mock the disfigured and use their sexual charms to manipulate others.

* Wrestling/KellyKelly is one of the few Characters/WWEDivas to never undergo a FaceHeelTurn, or to have been a heel in the first place. This was probably because she was one of the prettiest Divas ever, and (it was assumed) no one would have ever believed her as a heel. Word Of God is Kelly was going to undergo a Face Heel Turn in 2011, as it would be revealed she was secretly working with Kharma. This would have led to Kelly becoming Divas Champion, with Kharma acting as her muscle (similar to when Sable had Nicole Bass in 1999). After Kharma got pregnant in real life, WWE kept Kelly face and went forward with her becoming Divas Champion.

* This belief is not only held in regard to other humans but to animals as well. Think about it this way: most people wouldn't think twice about killing a cockroach but would be horrified at the thought of killing a butterfly.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'': Starve Venom Fusion Dragon is a horrific BodyHorror monster that scares many people by its look alone. One way of attacking is it growing its mouth wings into large mouths that devour people and other monsters whole, fitting to its carnivorous plant motif. [[spoiler:Once it fuses with Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon to become Supreme King Violet Dragon - Odd-Eyes Venom Dragon, it gets purified and gains a beautiful (yet still somewhat terrifying) appearance. Odd-Eyes Venom Dragon is so beautiful that even Asuka, who used to hate Fusions because they were used hurt people, is astonished by its appearance alone. When Odd-Eyes Venom uses its Monster Effect to gain more ATK, its wings spread pink energy, making it look like a blooming flower. It also replaces the carnivorous plant motif for a [[CherryBlossoms chery blossom]] motif. And unlike the other two Pendulum hybrids, its "WhatBeautifulEyes" description is the opposite of them; its "gem-like eyes are shining in kindness".]]

** Played with in ''Bats!'' during the song sequence ''Stop The Bats''. When Applejack sings about them they are drawn as hideous buck-toothed gremlin things, and when Fluttershy sings about them they're drawn as fluffy and cute. Applejack sees them as monsters because of the threat they pose to her farm and livelihood, while Fluttershy sees them as cute because she sympathizes with them.
