[[folder:Fairy Tales]]
* In one of ''Creator/CharlesPerrault'' lesser know tales "Riquet à la Houppe," or as it is known in english, "Riquet with the Tuft," or even more simply "Tufty Ricky," a princess is gifted by a fairy on her birth, the gift of beauty, however the fairy also throws in the caveat that she will be extremely stupid. However one day she comes across the ugly, but charming, Gnome Prince Riquet, who also was blessed by the same fairy, however this time with the gift of intelligence and wit. He reveals that he was granted the power to gift one person with intelligence, and thus out of pity for the lonely and crying princess, whom all avoid due to her inability to carry on a conversation, he passes on his gift to her. A year later, the princess, now very popular in court due to her wit as well as her grace, crosses paths with Riquet once again, and discovers she too has a power to pass along her gift. After thinking of Riquet's kindness, as well as his charm and wit, she is able to render him handsome, and the two are married.

* Toyed with in ''Series/{{House}}''.
** House tells Cameron that he hired her because she was pretty, not because she was "the best" ... for example, she graduated ''near'' the top of her class, but not ''at'' the top of her class. House figured that, because she was pretty enough to get by on her looks but chose to study ''anyway'', she was probably worth hiring.
** House meets a doctor when he's looking to replace his fellows and, in flirting with her, offers her a [[DoubleEntendre position on his staff]]. One episode later, it's revealed that she took him at his word and shows up at Princeton-Plainsboro having left her former job. This being TV, most characters are at worst HollywoodHomely, but she's remarkably good-looking in that several characters remark on how good-looking she is. It's heavily implied that she's been getting by on her looks, because House is repeatedly DistractedByTheSexy and doesn't realize her ideas are nonsensical until it's pointed out by someone else. Eventually he starts having Taub or one of the others repeat her statements to him so that he can judge them outside the context of her physical appearance, and winds up firing her by the end of the episode.

** The [[ComicBook/ArchieComics2015 2015 reboot]] of the Archie titles pushed Melody away from this trope and more into a GeniusDitz who happens to be ravishingly beautiful. A more straightforward example of this trope in the modern comics is Cheryl Blossom. She isn't as cartoonishly stupid as Melody or Suzie where but she frequently comes across as an airhead who's convinced she's brilliant, from her inability to recall the names of Archie's friends even while trying to ''bribe'' them ('Jug Handle', 'Betsy') to her attempts at staging a rescue to impress others ([[BadBadActing "wake up man, whose name I don't know!"]].) In #17 Veronica has to point out to her that [[spoiler: her father's company being bought out by Hiram Lodge doesn't actually make the Blossoms poor.]]
