* ''Literature/SpectralShadows'' completely inverts this. There's lots of beautiful female characters that are pretty intelligent or at least not so ditsy.

* Subverted in ''Film/MightyAphrodite'': Linda uses her sexual charms to get by, but she later turns out to be sadly aware of the fact, tries to improve her life without relying on beauty and deeply regrets not being able to take care of the child she put up for adoption. In the end, [[ItGetsBetter she gets better.]]

* Moldsmal's battle description in ''VideoGame/UnderTale" is a reference to this trope. "Stereotypical: Curvaceously attractive, but no brains..." Despite that, this is subverted by Moldsmal being a BlobMonster.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' 'Spin-Off Showcase' episode Lisa refused to participate in a cheesy family variety show so was recast by a pretty blonde cheerleader of a decidedly less intellectual bent.

The Brainless Beauty can be either male or female. Female examples (who are usually also TheChick) tend to be classic [[DumbBlonde blonde idiots]]; male examples are tall and [[DumbMuscle muscular]]. Neither [[ChickMagnet has much difficulty]] [[HelloNurse getting the attention of the opposite sex]]. The Brainless Beauty is rarely the hero; they tend to be {{foil}}s for more intelligent (though less successful romantically) characters. Some are sympathetic good-natured dullards, others are presented as annoying obstacles for our heroes. Either way expect a smart but [[HollywoodHomely plain]] character to be left fuming at the unfairness of it all.

* Amy March in ''Literature/LittleWomen'' can't pay attention in school because she's too concerned with getting limes, the currency that would make her popular.

Added DiffLines:

* Website/CollegeHumor: In "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIPJrrQlxzY The Six Girls You'll Date in College]]", there's 'The Dumb Hot One', who dates the AudienceSurrogate simply because she once saw a Creator/WesAnderson movie and thinks he's "quirky".

* The members of Sev'ral Timez, the boy band from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', are all very good-looking, and can't even figure out how to drink water from a glass. Then again [[spoiler:they are clones who can only sing well and they were locked in a hamster cage by a very bad boss and all they vould eat is hamster food and suck from a hamster bottle.]]

Then again [[spoiler:they are clones who can only sing well and again, this is possibly justified by [[spoiler: the fact they were locked are ''clones''. They have been genetically created to be the perfect boyband in terms of appearance, singing and dancing talent, but are treated like performance animals by their Boss,Bratzman. They live in a large hamster cage by a very bad boss and all they vould eat is hamster food and suck from a hamster bottle.Mabel eventually releases them into the wild.]]
