* Kevin from ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 2016}}'' is incredibly handsome and incredibly dim. The girls only hire him to be their receptionist because he was the only one who answered the ad.



** [[ShoutOut Christine]] from ''Discworld/{{Maskerade}}''. She's so dizy she uses double exclamation marks all the time and has no idea what's going on, and she can't sing either, but she still overshadows Agnes Nitt as an opera singer because of her looks.

Added DiffLines:

* The song "Macho Macho" by austrian pop singer Rainhard Fendrich is about a male example. One memorable line is "Er war zwar in der Schul' ein Depperl, aber des stört die Hasn nie"[[note]]("He may have been an idiot at school, but the chicks don't mind")[[/note]].

Added DiffLines:

* Princess Blaze from ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' is said to be the most beautiful of the [=SandWing=] sisters in the war. But she's also shown to be quite idiotic and gullible, [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen not good traits for a queen]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.
