* In ''Literature/TheBartimaeusTrilogy,'' Jakob was attacked by a magician and left with permanent black-and-gray bands [[FacialMarkings on his face]] as a result. He spent the next few years as a reclusive, refusing to leave his family's home. Bartimaeus barely notices the "hideous" bands and assumes they were intentional. Apparently men from Zimbabwe's Banja tribe will actually pay magicians to use that spell on them because they think it looks attractive.

* Beast was also popular with women much of the time, especially during his stint with the [[Comicbook/TheAvengers Avengers]]. There's just something about blue fur and CuteLittleFangs. [[NerdsAreSexy Brains don't hurt either]], plus he's a WalkingShirtlessScene.

** For her entire life, [[spoiler:Charlotte Pudding]]'s [[spoiler:third eye]] has been considered monstrous by everyone who sees it, and constant abuse over this drove her to become murderously insane. She's come to hid [[spoiler:the third eye]] under her hair and even uses revealing it as a weapon; apparently her targets tend to be shocked by a pretty woman having such a hideous facial feature and she uses that moment of distraction to kill them. When [[spoiler:Sanji]] sees it for the first time, he tells her she looks even more beautiful that way.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'': Tieflings (demon-bloods), overlapping with FreakinessShame, have +1 Intelligence and Charisma (and -1 Strength and Wisdom) in AD&D 2. Example: [[{{Planescape}} factol]] Rhys of the Transcendent Order is goat-legged, but it's not like her portraits left everyone guessing why she has Charisma 18 (on a scale of 3-18 for humans). Especially one in ''The Factol's Manifesto'' -- looking best when in action is normal for Cyphers, and calling her "ActionGirl" would be an understatement.

** The way that he did it (taking her to a real zombie and demon bar in the underworld and then practically exploding in hellfire) was certainly convincing but I can't help but think that it would have ended better if he went a little slower with it.

* The cast of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''... they aren't easily freaked out, to the point where [[Film/{{Jumanji}} Goonmanji]] in "[[BSideComics Newspaper]]" [[TooSpicyForYogSothoth failed to impress them much]]. Especially Tedd. In-continuity he wasn't even surprised when his crush turned out to be a {{shapeshifter}} and commented on various [[ShapeShifterMashup hybrid forms]] she assumed later exclusively in FetishFuel terms. [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2008-08-21 His reaction]] when [[VitriolicBestBuds Susan]] demonstrated magic-related knowledge?

-->'''Ragdoll''': ''It just goes to show that sometimes the scars are on the inside, like with [[ComicBook/LexLuthor Luthor]] and that [[{{VandalSavage}} Vandal fellow]], and [[ComicBook/SecretSix my friends]], too. Which is much less fun and only half as sexy. I pity them, to man, if you must know. Better to be odd and whole than normal and broken, I always say. Rats. I sure hope I start to decompose soon!''

* ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' does this with centaurs. In one {{anvilicious}} episode about prejudice, a maligned centaur travels into town and gets lots of hard glances even with Herc around... except for a bunch of little kids who think a guy with a horse for a butt is pretty awesome.
