* 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"]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', one episode reveals that Amethyst feels this way because she was created on Earth, rather than the Gem Homeworld. She feels that she was grown by bad Gems, to do bad things.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', one episode reveals that Amethyst feels this way because she took longer than most gems to emerge, resulting in her being about half the size of most quartz soldiers (the purpose she was created for); she thus becomes obsessed with taking down Jasper, "the perfect quartz". Moreover, because she was created on Earth, rather than the Gem Homeworld. She she feels guilty about only existing because of Homeworld's invasion. Pearl manages to comfort her by saying, "You're the one good thing that she was grown by bad Gems, to do bad things.came out of this mess."

-->'''Isabela:''' I enjoy a man with markings like that.

* 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.

* In ''{{Sekirei}}'', this turns out to be the core of Akitsu's UndyingLoyalty to her master, Mikogami. As a [[BlackSheep Scrapped Number]], she's considered a failed project and utterly worthless since she can never bond with an Ashikabi. When he asked her to join him, she protested that she was broken and thrown out as trash. He responded by telling her it didn't matter, and that it meant she was special! And rare! Her startled, hopeful expression makes it a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming for the ''villains''.

* Creator/CharlesStross's ''[[TheLaundrySeries The Jennifer Morgue]]'': When half-[[Creator/HPLovecraft Deep One]] assassin [[spoiler:Ramona Random]] drops the illusion protecting her true, fishy appearance, she expects protagonist Bob Howard to be repelled. He's anything but.
** From a practical point of view, this is mainly because she's part of a subspecies ''specifically'' engineered not to be repulsive to humans, because the Deep Ones do have an occasional need to interact with them.

* 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 ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11868249/2/Red-like-the-Storm Red like the Storm]], Harry is quite insecure about her magic powers after being raised by abusive relatives who considered her a worthless freak. When he sees her talking to a snake, Hayato is immediately fascinated and assures her relatives were lying because she's special.

* 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.
