* Beast from Creator/{{Disney}}'s ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' certainly fits, at least for the fans; even outside of the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom, the general consensus is that the Beast's monstrous form is better and more attractive than his human form, so much so that it's easy to [[CompletelyMissingThePoint wrongfully declare]] the movie's [[BrokenAesop Aesop broken]], as a result. In a more traditional use of this trope, his eyes are [[WhatBeautifulEyes consistently portrayed as being attractive]] and after his transformation back to human, this is how Belle recognizes him.



* In ''Film/ShallowHal'', Hal's even more shallow and sexist friend reveals he was born with a "tail" (slight extension of the spine) that's he's very embarrassed about. In the end, he finds a women that considers it adorable. He's capable of wagging it back and forth, which reminds her of a dog, and she loves dogs. They walk off together, with his "tail" wagging happily under his clothes.



* In ''Film/GoodLuckChuck'', one of the "one night stand" quickies Charlie has didn't want to bare her chest. At the end of the movie, we find out that she has three breasts. Of course Charlie's best friend, a cosmetic surgeon specialising in breast enhancement, goes completely wild for this when he finds out.

*** The inverse is also true, of course: it's become not uncommon for Japanese students to bleach or dye their hair so that they stand out ''more''. But where in the West this would be viewed as a fashion statement, in Japan people who do this are often assumed to be very rebellious or even dangerous, though this stereotype is also fading a bit.

* Not officially confirmed as a romantic example, but oh well. In ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', [[CuteMonsterGirl Squirrel beastkin girl]] Makoto Nanaya has a rather large and bushy squirrel tail, and due to engrained FantasticRacism, she is ashamed of it. Her best friend [[{{Moe}} Noel]] [[CutenessProximity Vermillion]] finds her tail extremely attractive, and often asks to fondle it. The buckets of LesYay in these scenes are not helped by the fact that [[BiTheWay Makoto is all but confirmed to be bisexual.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/LeviathanMyHeroAcademia'' gives Izuku a facial scar and a bit of PowerIncontinence which manifests itself with fins, scales and [[CuteLittleFangs pointy teeth]]. Since he considers these as his inner monster surfacing, he's quite surprised when Kirishima finds his look ''manly'' and worthy gushing over.
** Powerset variant with Hitoshi who heard all his life his CompellingVoice was awful and villainous, and is very much thrown for a loop when his classmates not only consider it an asset, but call it a ''perfectly heroic Quirk''.
