* Comicbook/{{Concrete}} is generally rather self-conscious of his hulking alien body, as his InnerMonologue often reveals. Played with in that while his unrequited love interest doesn't find him attractive, she does find him fascinating and has dedicated her life to studying him.

* I n ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', When Videl asks Gohan why he'd do something as silly as create a secret superhero identity instead of just go out and fight criminals as himself like she does, Gohan replies that he was afraid people would think he was some kind of freak if they had any idea what he was capable of. Videl simply points out that he just implied ''she'' was a freak before blackmailing him into teaching her how to fly.

* Miss Martian on ''YoungJustice'' normally appears as an attractive, green-skinned teenage girl, but in reality, she's not a Green Martian like her uncle, MartianManhunter, she's actually a ''white martian'', a disenfranchised underclass on Mars who dont look anything [[https://68.media.tumblr.com/98fe44d38ba1224b51f656a3049d4d92/tumblr_o3laytVJih1sh87v9o3_400.gif close to human]], and is deeply ashamed when a psychic attack from Psimon exposes her true form. The team is surprised at first but quickly accept her.

* This trope is played with in the weirdest of non-romantic ways possible in ''[[{{Touhou}} Undefined Fantastic Object]]'': Nue Houjuu is a CuteMonsterGirl with red and blue misshapen wings that look more like scythes and arrows than anything else... it's the part about looking like a cute girl that she's ashamed of. She really wishes her true form was that of a horrifying monster, which is what she's been using her power of [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm Non-Identification]] to look like for the last couple of hundreds of years. However, when [[{{Miko}} Sanae Kochiya]] lays eyes on her, she immediately ceases her BloodKnight tendencies, calls off the extermination of Nue, [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee starts gushing about how cool she is,]] decides that they're going to go get their pictures taken together and become best friends and completely refuses to accept that Nue is in fact a youkai... Nue, as you'd expect from the above, finds Sanae's lack of fear of her ''very'' offputting.

* Ichigo with her {{catgirl}} transformation in ''TokyoMewMew''. She constantly worries that her eventual love interest will hate her when he finds out, but when he does he's perfectly okay with it.
** Retasu, too, though her fishgirl transformation isn't tied to any particular physical feature (besides the marking that identifies everyone from the Mu Project) and she doesn't worry about any love interest hating it. ''Her'' most strongly hinted love interest was in charge of the whole project anyway.

* Jasmine, a character from the [[ForgottenRealms Finder's Bane]] duology. She had previously been "blessed" with a wish by [[LadyLuck Tymora]] in mortal guise in the form of an idle conversation. Jasmine said that if she could have any one thing, it would be to be able to fly away from all her problems. Tymora somewhat reluctantly [[LiteralGenie grants this wish]], giving Jasmine a set of [[CursedWithAwesome beautiful, but permanent wings]]. The other main characters she meets in the books assure her that her wings are beautiful, but to her, they're missing the point. It's not the fact the wings themselves are ugly, but the fact that they're there in the first place. For someone who's a hairsbreadth shy of a ShrinkingViolet, they only serve to make her the center of attention wherever she goes. In fact, she manages to make her home in [[{{Planescape}} Sigil]] for several months, simply because it's one of the only places where a girl with wings won't stand out.

* Bonnie, from "Dragons In Our Midst" is ashamed of her dragon wings for the entire series. She even hides them in a specially made backpack to go to school, etc. Her destined love interest, Billy, finds them lovely. (The backpack also had something to do with making sure she didn't advertise her existence to the dragon slayers.)

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', the half-orc gladiator Agronak takes great pride in his combat skills, despite other people vocally wondering about what sort of monster his ''other'' half was. When he learns that his father is [[spoiler:a vampire]], he's appalled and ashamed, and [[spoiler:tries to arrange his own death in the Arena rather than go on as a "spawn of evil"]].
