* Harshly deconstructed in the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''Creator/{{Marvel}}'' crossover ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/story.php?no=27501 Blue Belle]]''. Cordelia tells Michelle that her natural form (which is basically a 16 year old Mystique) is beautiful she's not attracted to Michelle's preferred form (because it resembles Willow) or her original form ([[GenderBender Xander]]). As a result, Michelle angrily compares it loving someone only if they change nearly everything about themselves. This motivates her to date [[BiTheWay Gwen]] instead who is attracted to all three forms.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask''. While it may seem like Kafei went into hiding because the Skull Kid [[FountainOfYouth turned him into a child]], it's actually because [[LostWeddingRing his Sun Mask was stolen]] and he can't bring himself to face Anju without it. Anju herself doesn't seem to mind upon seeing his condition beyond wanting to verify that it ''is'' in fact 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.

* Manga/InuYasha's UnusualEars mark him as a HalfHumanHybrid, but what does his LoveInterest do upon seeing them for the first time? ''Tweak, tweak!'' The gag is repeated with Kagome's mother and brother (evidently it runs in the family), except this time [=InuYasha=] is awake, not sealed to a tree. In general he's less bothered by his youkai side then the human one and his full-youkI half brother ironically looks more human than he does until he comes out of SleepModeSize and into the giant dog their father was, and he gets pretty defensive about it in early arcs. Especially big, sweet, horse-faced Jinenji whose home village abused him roundly. And the arc with the cute little half-bat youkai with cruel neighbors ''and'' an abusive bat youkai grandfather. Clearly had a HalfBreedDiscrimination thing going on; just preferred the strong option to the powerless one.

* Not officiall 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.]]

[[{{Robosexual}} Z]], however, finds that the physical coldness and stiffness makes her seem more robotic, which makes her end up [[LesYay attracted to Gwen,]] resulting in a bit of a crisis of sexuality.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': Karkat has his bright red blood, which marks him as a pariah in troll society since it places him outside their blood color based caste system. When his on-again-off-again girlfriend Terezi finds out, she isn't bothered at all, and tells him he should reveal it to the rest of the trolls (since their society is kind of gone and the stigma no longer has any practical significance). Whether or not Terezi's obvious love of the color red is related to Karkat's blood color is unclear.
** It's also one of the reasons Karkat bonds with Jack Noir so quickly: Jack doesn't freak out about Karkat's blood color, and shows Karkat ''his'' blood is also red. They have a kind of a "blood brothers" moment over this. [[spoiler:Or at least, Karkat thinks so.]]
