* In one of Creator/{{Moebius}}' ''Arzach'' comics, the titular character watches an attractive woman changing through a window. He goes through great pains to get to her before discovering she is an alien with a face like a dog crossed with a gas mask.

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]]. France might call such a woman ''jolie-laide'' - literally, "pretty/ugly", denoting a woman who can be both things simultaneously, or switch between states depending on, for instance, what angle you are viewing her from. In Brazil, the common nickname is "Raimunda" ("shrimp woman" is another term used in this country), sort of a [[BritishEnglish/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!"

* Similar to the Ghost Lady, Mother Harlot from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'' at first can only be seen from behind... until she turns around and reveals [[SkullForAFace her absolute lack of a face]] while her jaw clatters madly.

* The French comic ''L'Expedition'' has a Roman soldier with the nickname "the Lion of Nubia". A Nubian queen who aided rebels against Rome demanded that the soldier be given to her as part of the peace agreeements. Since she was only shown from the back with a FormFittingWardrobe up to then, it makes her seriously deformed face all the more hideous (and stuck the poor bastard with an ironic nickname).

Needless to say, this is a ''hugely'' impolite thing to say to or about another person, for which reason we want NoRealLifeExamplesPlease

* Mileena from ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' has become one of the best-known Butterfaces in video games. At first she looks like your typical FemmeFatale in a purple ninja outfit. That is, until she takes off her mask and turns out to have MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily. This is due to being part-Tarkatan (like Baraka, below).

In spite of all those, Mileena still tends to be a frequent character to be put as '[[MsFanservice Sexiest Videogame Babe]]'. Yes, they really just looked at her body, but made sure her face is covered by her usual mask, because she'd be disqualified in an instant if she ever reveals it.
