* Subverted on an episode of ''Series/WillAndGrace'' in which Will, who is a good-looking man, is set up on a date with a blind man. (Leads to a sort of WhosOnFirst incident when he realizes it's a ''literal'' blind date.) The man asks to feel Will's face so he can "see" him, which Will permits, and then the guy complains that just because he's blind, people always set him up with ugly dates.

It is then revealed to be a prank, engineered by Jack for his new reality show "Pink'd" ("[[TheMockbuster a non-derivative version of]] ''Series/PunkD''"), playing on Will's insecure vanity for humor.

* ''Film/TheToxicAvenger'' (a mutant) has a blind girlfriend. A smokin' hot one. When she is finally given sight for the first time, she sees her hot doctor and screams in horror, but thought that her freaky mutated beau was the sexiest man alive.
** Subverted in the cartoon show based on the series. The girlfriend is not blind, just [[DumbBlonde really stupid]].

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Misfits}}'', both Curtis and Rudy try to flirt with an attractive blind girl who is making sculptures using their faces as models. The plot proceeds in typical Misfits fashion, as she rejects Curtis because despite being blind, she's a virulent racist. Then Rudy pursues her (while making repeated references to Music/LionelRichie, see Music) but he forgoes his normal CasanovaWannabe attitude to make a principled stand against her racism featuring Rudy-isms about how racism and blindness should "cancel out" and how StevieWonder proves his point... [[ShaggyFrogStory somehow]].

* Hanako Ikezawa from ''KatawaShoujo'' was left disfigured (but not horribly so) in an fire. Lilly, her best friend, is blind since birth. However it's actually reversed, as with her [[PhysicalScarsPsychologicalScars severe emotional scars to go along with her physical ones]], Hanako seems to be the only one who thinks that she's a monster [[spoiler: being shunned by the other kids at the orphanage where she grew up after the house fire that killed her parents and scarred her does that to a person]]. While not everyone is repulsed by her appearance, many of those who are not, such as Hisao, often act awkwardly while trying to avoid looking at her scars, and Hisao suspects that as that does not apply to Lilly, it was easier for her to befriend Hanako.

* ''Film/AgeOfAdaline'' has a variation with Adaline and her blind friend, who is unable to see that Adaline never aged like she did. Assuming Adaline and she are similar in age physically, she finds it odd that Adaline keeps getting the attention of young men.
