* Music/WeirdAlYankovic's video for "Perform This Way" features a half naked woman dancing around in crazy but revealing outfits... who also has the face of Weird Al himself edited onto her body.
* Happens in the music video for Cray On by [[BigBang G-Dragon]]. Very shapely young woman in a tight black dress walks across the set away from the camera. G-Dragon and the boys lean in. She turns and ... you can guess the rest (as she says the song's hook line "why so serious?")!

* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXd6u9o6dYY Keep it Goin' Louder]]" by Music/MajorLazer features a bunch of mostly plus-sized scantily clad women dancing, complete with slow-motion [[ShakingTheRump twerking]] and {{gainaxing}}. It would be titillating if not for the fact that most of them look like... well, [[https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11112/111129932/3283496-girls.jpg this]].

* In modern-day Central American urban legends, we have the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sihuanaba Sihuanaba]], a spirit that looks like a beautiful woman from behind. She appears bathing in a lake or river and lures men to their deaths, but not before revealing that her face is actually that of a horse. Mind you, in this case, [[FurryFandom there are men who wouldn't be put off by]] TheReveal [[FurryFandom at all]].

The Japanese have their own word for it, "bakku-shan" (a combination of "back" and "schön", German for "beautiful"), hence "beautiful only from the back". In Australia, this is called "prawn," in the Philippines, "hipon," and in México "camarona,"[[note]]The latter two are Filipino/Spanish for "shrimp/prawn" respectively[[/note]] because when eating shrimps/prawns, you only go for the body and not the head. Meanwhile in Poland, such a woman is described as "z tyłu liceum, z przodu muzeum" [[labelnote:translation]]high-schooler back, museum piece front[[/labelnote]]. In Brazil, the common nickname is "Raimunda" ("shrimp woman" is another term used in this country), sort of a [[CockneyRhymingSlang Portuguese rhyming slang]] for "ugly face, but [[SkewedPriorities a pretty ass]]". In Puerto Rican Spanish, they're called a "coño carajo", which roughly translates to "damn fuck", as in from the back you say "Daaaaaaamn!" and from the front you say "Fuck!"

* ''You'' can play as one in basically every game that lets you fully create your characters, such as ''The Elder Scrolls'', ''Fallout'' 3 onwards or the ''Saints Row'' series; your female character can look drop-dead gorgeous from the neck-down, but play around with the face sliders enough and you can end up with a Butter Face that would make even [[Franchise/MortalKombat Mileena]] look like a fashion model.
* The nurses in the ''Franchise/SilentHill'' series apparently have [[HospitalHottie very nice bodies]], and ''tumors'' for heads.

* This trope is {{discussed|Trope}} in ''VideoGame/BattlefieldBadCompany''. Most of the squad, Sweetwater in particular, expresses adoration for [[VoiceWithAnInternetConnection Mike-One-Juliet]] based on nothing but the sound of her voice. Eventually, however, Haggard questions whether that automatically means she's physically as beautiful as Sweetwater imagines, noting that he has a cousin with a beautiful voice "but a face like a can of dog food".

** The Great Fairies from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' have long legs, large (albeit strangely-shaped, due to the low processing power of the Nintendo 64) breasts, and [[{{Stripperiffic}} no clothing but vines]]. Despite this, their noses are large and misshapen, they each have a single mole on the side of their face, and their mouths are cartoonishly large.

* In ''VideoGame/BendyAndTheInkMachine'', you have the living toon, Alice Angel, from chapter 3. From the neck down, she has the body of a curvaceous woman with an hourglass build. From the chin up, she's TwoFaced, with both equally bad -- the left half distorted like it's been badly burned, the right so smooth and toony that it hits the UncannyValley -- and has a lopsided halo visibly growing out the left side of her skull.

* In Ellen Godfrey's ''Georgia Disappeared'', Jane's first meeting with Georgia is written as a homage to Marian Halcombe's introduction in ''The Woman in White'' -- Jane first sees Georgia silhouetted in a restaurant doorway, then walking gracefully towards her. Only when Georgia gets close does Jane realise how pretty she isn't.
