* Linnea Sinclair is fond of this trope; usually one half of the designated couple will have some supernatural or technological abilities that everyone else considers subhuman. The other half will start out believing the propaganda, but will eventually get to know them, fall in love, and consider their abilities superhuman.

* To a certain extent this applies to Mina's extensive, horrific scars in ''TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', the legacy of being attacked by Dracula. She's deeply ashamed by them and covers them with a scarf. She's convinced Allan is repulsed and only relaxes when he says they're part of what makes her special.

* In OnePiece, until he met Dr. Hiriluk, everyone who met Chopper treated him as a monster, attacking him and calling him as such. because of this, he is ashamed of his abilities and believes he really is a monster until Luffy and co come along and find it TOTALLY AWESOME! SEVEN TRANSFORMATIONS! JOIN MY CREW! It helps that after he joins he realizes Luffy is much weirder than he is. But this leads up to him eventually being proud of being a monster, because of how it can help his friends, and because his TrueCompanions think it's cool.

* Similarly, in ''PlanescapeTorment'', the [[CuteMonsterGirl tiefling]] Annah is sensitive about her tail, but if you decide to compliment her on her appearance, one of your points is that it's nice.
* Ritz from ''FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' dyes her hair pink in the real world, because it's naturally white and she hates it. In the fantasy world, though, there's the Viera, a OneGenderRace of [[CuteMonsterGirl rabbit]]-[[PettingZooPeople women]] who regard white hair as a divine gift. Her viera companion tells her it is beautiful and that she is blessed for having it.

* In Creator/RobinHobb's [[RealmOfTheElderlings Liveship Traders]] trilogy, there's a mutual version of this: the people from the Rain Wilds are deformed by the "strangeness" that runs down the river. Reyn Khuprus hides his face from Malta Vestrit, who is horrified the first time she sees him unveiled, because [[spoiler:she's ashamed of the "scar" on her forehead from a previous head injury]] which turns out to be [[spoiler:a scaly red crest, a sign that they're both becoming Elderlings as a result of their association with [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Tintaglia]].]]
* In ''DragonsCanOnlyRust'' and ''Dragon Reforged'' by Chrys Cymri, Gonard the [[OurDragonsAreDifferent robot dragon]] is convinced he's hideous. Itsa is astonished to learn this and thinks he is very beautiful.

* ''HavelokTheDane'' has the titular character with a light emanating from his mouth, as well as a scar shaped like a cross. In some versions he is ashamed of this, in other versions people spotting the signs wonder what's going on, to hear [[spoiler:that Havelok is [[TheChosenOne destined]] to become king of England and Denmark.]]

* ''Film/SuicideSquad2016'': Subverted. Harley rants about how everyone on the Squad is pretty on the outside but ugly on the outside--except for Killer Croc. "He's ugly on the outside too." Croc is a green, scaly beast that looks and acts more like an animal than a man, but he just laughs.

* ''VideoGame/CrisisCore: VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has [[TheObiWan Angeal]] [[TheReveal states dramatically]] that [[WhatHaveIBecome he's become]] [[IAmAMonster a monster]] (since he's grown a wing), and Zack contends that's the wing of an angel. Which it does look like.

* Inverted in ''BaldursGate II'', where Aerie suffers serious self-image problems because of losing her wings, since apart from the scarred back, this loss makes her look like an ordinary elf rather than the Avariel she is. Fully inverted if your PC is romancing Aerie: you can tell her that she is beautiful even without her wings to reassure her.

* Ciel from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' expresses in several routes that she's deeply ashamed of her body. Shiki doesn't really get why: apart from being {{Immortal}} she looks pretty much normal, beautiful even. The real reason is that [[spoiler:back when she was possessed by the vampire Roa, her body was used to rape and violate dozens if not hundreds of men and women.]] She's ashamed of it for that fact, not because of any physical defects.
