* 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.

* ''The Face Behind The Mask'', a '40s B-Movie starring PeterLorre, centers on a Hungarian immigrant who is horribly disfigured in a fire, and turns to a life of crime since nobody will hire him. He [[HeelFaceTurn changes his ways]] after falling in love with a blind girl he runs into on the street, but [[spoiler: she is killed by his former hired goons, who are envious of his new life]]. Needless to say, [[TakingYouWithMe he doesn't take this well.]]

* On ''Series/PennyDreadful'', the Creature takes temporary employment at a wax museum, where he's treated kindly by the owner's blind daughter. [[spoiler: Cruelly subverted when she reveals that she's fully in cahoots with her parents' scheme to imprison the Creature as a live freak-show addition to their museum, and that she finds his ''personality'' tiresome.]]

* ''Literature/RedDragon''; Francis Dolarhyde falls in love with Reba [=McClane=] partly because she's [[DisabledLoveInterest blind]] and can't see his harelip, although it's strongly implied that most women he knew were attracted to him already - he's in ''very'' good shape. He just thinks of his harelip as being a much greater problem then it actually is, because, well, he's [[SerialKiller not a very emotionally well man]]. There's a moment of irony when she says she could tell he had some mouth abnormalities by the way he talked, but she of course didn't mind.
