* Played with in ''Manga/SaintSeiya'': Pisces Aphrodite is the most beautiful of the Gold Saints and, according to Saga, his beauty is only matched [[TheUnfettered by his cruel and unyielding disposition]], something he backs up more than once, but he's not as evil as [[CardCarryingVillain Deathmask]], just someone you need to ''not'' provoke.

* Actively played upon in ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa''--hero Makoto Naegi considers himself plain and is surprised when old schoolmate Sayaka Maizono remembers him. Maizono is a cute idol singer, but it also turns out that [[spoiler:she tried to set Naegi up to take a fall for her so she could escape the battle royale]]. Ziz-zagged in that she regrets it. Also present in the rest of the cast--the wealthy and handsome son of a corporation has next to no empathy for his fellow classmates, and the villain is [[spoiler: the classmate known as the Ultimate Fashionista]]. The less conventionally attractive cast members are accordingly more heroic--plain Naegi is a sweetheart, and beefy warrior woman Sakura is noble and kind.

* ''Literature/NightfallSeries'': Most humans at the Resistance seem to think BeautyEqualsGoodness as they associate beauty with vampires. Myraís cousin, Thea, argues that beauty isnít inherently right or wrong.

Traditionally, heroes are attractive, clean, and well-mannered, and villains are ugly, unhygienic, and boorish. There were some attractive villains - sometimes EvilIsSexy - but BeautyEqualsGoodness used to be taken for granted by writers and producers.

** The first villains to appear are [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman the most beautiful woman in Westeros]], Cersei Lannister and her [[HalfIdenticalTwins Half Identical Twin]] Jaime - one being probably the most iconic evil queen since Disney, and the other being known by a name of "Kingslayer" and starting his story career by pushing out of the window a child, who saw the two performing {{Twincest}}. The eldest offspring this loving union has produced is said to inherit the best physical features of his parents and is one of, if not ''the'' most psychotic character in Westeros (despite having plenty of competition). In general, [[FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon being attractive and blonde]] is one of the trademarks of the Lannister clan, who are generally speaking ''not'' nice people. Tyrion, an ugly, deformed dwarf is by far the most compassionate and kind of the Lannisters (although he's also done some pretty questionable things), and Jaime's redemption proceeds along with decrease of his attractiveness.

** Downplayed with Loras Tyrell, whose trademark Tyrell good looks have garnered him plenty of InUniverse fangirls. He's arrogant and cocky, but isn't really a terrible person. [[spoiler: And then he gets several major injuries attacking Dragonstone -- having ''boiling oil'' poured on his face included -- so it remains to be seen whether he'll live to subvert or invert this trope or not.]]

* A classic ''Series/DoctorWho'' example from very early in the show's run is the story "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E1Galaxy4 Galaxy 4]]" - the Doctor and his companions find themselves trapped on a planet along with the beautiful female Drahvins and the hideous Rills.

* In the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series, nearly every female that other characters describe as "beautiful" turns out to be pure evil. Plenty of "good" female characters are considered attractive by the fandom - [[MostCommonSuperpower Mia Fey in particular]] - but it rarely comes up in the games themselves.

* Invoked in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', where Cloud's JerkassFacade is connected to the fact that he now looks like a [[ElitesAreMoreGlamorous sexy SOLDIER member]] as a result of [[PhlebotinumRebel the experimental medical procedures done on him]] - apparently, he expects SOLDIER members should be like this. A couple of characters remark that the persona makes him seem attractive in itself.

* DIO, the main villain of [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders part 3]] of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. Not only if he charismatic, he has followers from across the world, and had sex with many women. He is constantly shown half-naked before his proper appearance in the final part of the manga, touching his body constantly ([[FoeYay which he stole from Jonathan Joestar]])). While the main heroes can't be considered ugly, the manga never focuses on how handsome they are, with the exception of Jotaro being a ChickMagnet, much to his annoyance.
