* ''ComicBook/SpiderGirl'' has another GenderFlip: one of the school's jocks, nicknamed Moose, incorrectly believes that geeky Courtney is Spider-Girl and becomes infatuated with her. Their romance extends after he figures out the truth. PlayedStraight with May's other geeky friend, Jimmy, who hooks up with the school's [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting]] AlphaBitch.

* ''Comicbook/ElongatedMan'' Ralph Dibny's marriage to Sue is depicted in this manner on occasion. Although ComicBook/TheFlash was Central City's premier hero and got most of the town's adulation, when Sue met them both for the first time when Flash and Ralph both appeared together at a society function, she was clearly enamored of the more gangly Ralph.

* This is the basic premise of ''Manga/ICantUnderstandWhatMyHusbandIsSaying'', where an ordinary woman is HappilyMarried to a hardcore otaku (as happily married as you can be when, 9 times out out of 10, she has no idea [[SpeaksInShoutOuts what he's talking about]]).

* Played straight with Hiccup in ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon''. He's smitten with Astrid first thing, but she hates him until she finds out his mindblowingly cool secret and, more importantly, how brave and principled a warrior he actually is. Unlike most examples of this trope, however, Hiccup is far from bad looking.
