* WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory features a parody of evil anime {{bishonen}} (and [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} Char]]), in the form of a literal space elf who looks, dresses, and poses like a woman... and sounds like Creator/BelaLugosi.

** Averted for male Ancient Elves like Abelas or [[spoiler:Solas]]. They have much more definitive masculine facial characteristics.
* PillarsOfEternity: Generally played straight for wood elven men compared to the men of other races, since they have slimmer frames than humans, and also can't grow facial hair. Averted for pale elves, who have more muscular builds ([[GameplayAndStorySegregation according to the lore, anyway]]), bushy eyebrows, and can grow facial hair.
** Wood elven wizard companion Aloth also fits the trope, having a slim, slight build, a smooth, pale face, long hair, and refined taste in clothing. This gets him heckled by some more manly party members, like [[HeManWomanHater Durance]].

-->'''Durance:''' So, do you spend all your time hiding behind skirts? Or do you just like to wear one?

* Bisexual elf Zevran from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' mentions this as the reason he and other elves were chosen as assassins. Most humans found them pleasing to look at, which increased the chances they'd be successful in their jobs. Zevran himself is a prime example of this trope at work - drunken dwarf Oghren even comments that Zevran's got "small breasts for a gal".

* Lieutenant Yaha of ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}} 2'' is a CampGay DepravedHomosexual who is obsessed with party member Urick to the point that he gave up his ability to feel pleasure for the ability of charm. He spends his boss battle making creepy remarks towards both Urick and Nowe.

* Hungarian-British illustrator [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victor_Ambrus Victor Ambrus]] has averted this when he drew his version of the Middle Earth Elves of JRRTolkien. His male Elves are notably masculine, often with lined faces and distinct features, as opposed to the more known Allan Lee, who was chosen as codifier for the movie elves. His version of [[https://no.pinterest.com/pin/417708934161208333/ Legolas]] should be noted. As a sidenote, his Elves even lack the traditional pointed ears. The "elvishness" is explained by drawing a kinc of sparkles around them, and very bright eyes.

** The ''Legion'' expansion adds the Shal'Dorei, a faction of elves who hid from the sundering in a protective magical shield. Dark skinned and white haired like the [[DungeonsAndDragons Drow elves]], the males can often be hard to tell apart from the females. Many players have argued whether the Nighthold raid boss Star Augur Etraeus is a male or female.

** One of the quests from the ''Cataclysm'' expansion involves playing through a tale from an orc who describes how he supposedly chased Deathwing on his motorcycle while driving around with a "hot babe." You get to choose which one of those hot babes gets to hop into his sidecar for the chase and one of them happens to be a male blood elf.

* While not all Elezen in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' are feminine in appearance, Alphinaud deserves a special mention for the fact that he looks almost identical to his twin sister Alisae, not helped by the fact that they (Initially) wear virtually identical outfits, as well. This is lampshaded in the FlavorText for the Wind-up Alisae minion, which states that they're simply Wind-up Alphinaud that were rebranded after changing the color of their hairbands and nothing else.
