** The Gerudo tribe is known to have rather good-looking members, also including the [[BigBad Great King of Evil himself]]. But then we have Koume and Kotake, a [[WickedWitch wicked]] pair of old twin sisters whose proportions are very exaggerated compared to the rest of the race. This will change temporarily at one special moment, though..
** Similarly, the generally handsome members of the Zora race have their King Zora, who mostly looks like a fat [[NurseryRhyme Humpty Dumpty]]-esque toad.

changes in the 2nd half of their boss fight where [[FusionDance they combine]] and become a hotter and sexier version of themselves.
** Similarly, the generally handsome members of the Zora race have their King Zora, who mostly looks like a fat [[NurseryRhyme Humpty Dumpty]]-esque toad. This is toned down in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' where the Zora king is still pretty chunky, but he has a lot of muscle as well and his face looks somewhat old instead of ugly.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' Kilton, who runs the monster based Fang & Bone shop, is a Hylian. Unlike the rest of the Hylians, which look like the average human, Kilton is quite short, a little chubby, has pale light green-blue skin, barely has any hair, and has small fangs protruding from his mouth.

* Gannon the carpenter from ''HarvestMoon DS: Island of Happiness'' is considerably less attractive than the other inhabitants of the island. His daughter Eliza, on the other hand, is [[TastesLikeDiabetes so cute it hurts]].

* The Scotsman from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' is not a pretty sight, but his wife is even bigger and uglier than he is, and considerably [[HairTriggerTemper more angry]]. It gets funnier: it's shown in the TimeSkip prior to Season Five that the pair have had a large number of daughters who are all [[AmazonianBeauty amazonian]] ''[[StatuesqueStunner knockouts]]''.

**Discord is the clearest example. While he is supposed to have the head of pony, it's much longer than that of any of the cast with a sunken narrow section between the mouth and eyes, has a scraggly beard and over grown eyebrows,and very asymmetrical complete with a snag tooth. Notably his appearance is supposed to be jarring in-universe as his mismatched parts represent disharmony.

!!!General



* ''Manga/BlueDrop'' has Hiroko, the leader of the high school dorms. She may not be straight-on gonk in and of itself, but she's so ridiculously large that she skirts the line.
* Okada from ''Manga/AliveTheFinalEvolution'', the only power-user who is overweight. He sweats constantly, may have a subtle hentai (hand-drawn porn) fetish, and suffers from an inferiority complex due to his physical appearance. His power involves killing victims who break their "promises" (for ex. two guys are killed when they call him fat despite being promised not to say so).
* Dan in ''Manga/BambooBlade'' is short and has a head shaped like an acorn. Yet he's [[OfficialCouple got a girlfriend]], is ranked high in the school, can draw very well, and is shaping up to be good at kendo. He's probably the luckiest male in the entire show, and most fans think him a victim of a ''Manga/ThePingPongClub'' LawyerFriendlyCameo.
** Dan is basically permanently SuperDeformed. Only ''once'' in the entire series (and only in the manga) is he portrayed like the other characters, and the manga has to point out that yes, that ''is'' Dan.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Some of the RedShirt or Mook level humans, shinigami and hollows have an ArtShift into this appearance to create the impression of someone who's not important to the long-term story but who is an issue that needs dealing with immediately. The most significant example is Oomaeda, whose entire family have a creepily similar appearance with the exception of his [[WhiteSheep little sister]], who is gorgeous and drawn normally. Oomaeda is usually comic relief and receives no respect from anyone. Whenever he is portrayed more sympathetically or seriously, the artwork shifts accordingly

* Done in a very literal way in the ''LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokurochan'' anime when one of Sakura's classmates is turned into a monkey. His face and head are animated in a paper cutout style, in a completely different form of animation from the rest of the show.
** Let us not forget about the angels with their halos removed. [[spoiler: Extreme case of explosive diarrhea happens. Poor bastards.]]
* ''Manga/BlueDrop'' has Hiroko, the leader of the high school dorms. She may not be straight-on gonk in and of itself, but she's so ridiculously large that she skirts the line.



* Inverted in the original manga of ''Anime/CuteyHoney''. Every character is downright ugly (specially the girls) with the exception of Honey, Natsuko, Seiji and his little brother, who in contrast look like the NonStandardCharacterDesign.
* Every single male monster shown so far in ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', in sharp contrast to the attractive if occasionally dangerous looking monster girls. First were the orcs, who were ugly [[PigMan pig men]], followed by the male centaurs, who managed to make the orcs look downright {{Bishonen}}.



* ''LightNovel/TheDevilIsAPartTimer'' has the main characters' landlady, so much so that the guys (who are ''TheDevil and a demon'') are freaked out the first time they see her.
--> "Is it ... ''human?''"
** When they see [[FanDisservice a picture of her in her swimsuit]], Maou and Lucifer both pass out and Alciel throws up. Alciel later tries to use the picture as a weapon.
* Calmaramon of ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'', who Slide-Digivolves from the idol [[AlphaBitch Ranamon]] is Gonk in her universe, something which causes her to lose her entire fan club. Think Ursula from ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' meets anime. A picture doesn't really tell you much, you have to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is6cwt5Tw4c&t=4m0s watch the show]] and [[MostAnnoyingSound hear her laugh]] to truly understand her Gonk.



** The Puchuus in the ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' anime are cute mascot characters whose faces become Gonk (resembling scarred, haggard manga assassin Golgo13) when they are injured or killed.

to:

** The Puchuus in the ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' the anime are cute mascot characters whose faces become Gonk (resembling scarred, haggard manga assassin Golgo13) when they are injured or killed.killed.
* The linemen Kurita and Komosubi of ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' are both pretty gonk, though in an UglyCute sort of way. In contrast to most examples, they are part of the main cast and are every bit as important and well-developed as their more attractive team members.
** Kasamatsu of the Taiyo Sphinx. He's about as tall as the average character in the series, but he's about three times as wide, with a really exaggerated face. He really, REALLY stands out among the other two important members on his team, the bishounen Harao, and the adult-looking Banba.
* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', there's Virgo's initial appearance under the ownership of Everlue. This is because Virgo is so loyal to whoever her master is that she actually changes her looks to whatever pleases them most. Under Lucy's ownership, she's one of the prettiest characters in the series.
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'':
** The Armstrong family where the father and the mother and the middle children look pretty much the same except for the oldest and [[{{Kawaiiko}} youngest.]]
** Gluttony, who basically looks like a bigger, more menacing ComicStrip/{{Ziggy}}.
* Arguably, 8th from ''Manga/FutureDiary''. She's meant to look more like a cute chibi than outwardly grotesque, but her appearance compared to the other characters can be quite jarring.



* ''Manga/GirlsSaurus'': [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_VPtkEk4MNZI/SeIzNDid1VI/AAAAAAAAAGk/b6U0n1eEzoc/s320/Girls_Saurus_ichigo_mangadestiny.blogspot.com.jpg Ichigo]]. Sweet mother of god, [[http://www.anime-source.com/manga/girls/vol02/c010/dinosaurgirl02_141.png Ichigo]].

* In ''Manga/TheHatingGirl'', any character that's inherently negative is drawn as being quite ugly, and the main characters get the same treatment whenever they take on negative traits. It's especially pronounced for delinquents (and Asumi when she starts acting like one) and for the rude, lecherous upperclassmen.
* ''Manga/HunterXHunter'':
** Senritsu's original design was this, though once she got a speaking role she got a facelift to UglyCute.
** Biscuit's real appearance, at least in her opinion (she's enormously tall and muscular, although not exactly ugly).
* Played for laughs in the anime version of ''[[Anime/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]''. The girls wanted to be more adult, wearing make-up, high heels, padding... It... doesn't end well.



** Also, Shigekiyo "Shigechi" Yangu.

to:

** Also, Shigekiyo "Shigechi" Yangu.Yangu in Part 4. One of ugliest character of the entire franchise. He's short and fat. Apparently bald, his crown is textured by short spikes, and he has thick, drooping earlobes. He has small, high eyebrows, and youthful features. His teeth are misaligned, and he is missing his left maxillary central incisor
* A few characters from ''Manga/KarateShoukoushiKohinataMinoru'', most notably Kevin and Hayama.
* One character from ''Manga/KareKano'' who was the ClassRepresentative of another class who has the head of a ''real person''.



* One of the more prominent running gags in ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' involves Ragnarok member Loki having numerous body doubles a la Saddam. One of the body doubles is moderately gonky and looks extremely out of place when compared to the rest. Come to think of it, [[http://blog.seiha.org/images/kenichi33/kenichi33%20(13).jpg he]] bears a passing resemblence to [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers Henchman 21]].



* Ryu from Anime/MobileSuitGundam is a bit of a borderline case, as he's usually drawn in a slightly different style than most of the main characters, but he's not really ugly (in fact, in the novels Sayla has a bit of a crush on him before she ends up getting together with Amuro).

to:

* Most of the humans' design in ''Manga/MidoriNoMakibao'' crosses into this trope. Humans in the series are often drawn with large lips and impressive nose holes

* Takeo Gouda, the protagonist of ''Manga/MyLoveStory'' is a massive dude with a large nose, large lips and a very plain haircut. His best friend Suna however is a thin, handsome guy of average height. In any other story, Suna would be the protagonist while Takeo would be the BromanticFoil. Takeo's girlfriend thinks he is gorgeous and his lips remind her of a movie star's.
* Kaoru from ''Manga/NanaToKaoru'' and his mother at first, although this is more of a GenericCuteness failure on her part. Both are moving away from this, especially since Kaoru started running and putting some effort into studying.



* Manga/{{Naruto}}:

to:

* Manga/{{Naruto}}:''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':



* Many of the {{youkai}} in ''Manga/NatsumesBookOfFriends'' look this way. Nyanko-sensei in particular, has come to be known by Natsume's friends as "Natsume's really ugly cat" - if they don't mistake him for a pig, that is. This is accurate, though: the vast majority of yōkai are described in folklore as ''really'' bizarre-looking.
* In the infamous "Sandbox Sequence" from the complementary conclusion to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', ''The End of Evangelion'', Shinji sees two doll-like girls with very disturbingly-accentuated features, that definitely fall under Gonk. As with ''Anime/PerfectBlue'' (see above), it is '''NOT''' played for laughs.



* Most of Tsukimi's friends in ''Manga/PrincessJellyfish'' fall on the Gonky side, especially compared to their gender-flipped NerdNanny, [[{{Bishonen}} Kuranosuke]].
* Andre from ''Manga/PrisonSchool''. He's large, has an egg shaped body, a face that is way too small for the rest of his head, and over-sized Buddha-like earlobes.



* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' most minor villains, especially those belonging to gangs, are Gonks.
** A group among Shishio's followers, the Priests of Abukuma, are particularly notable. Each one of the four have the most comically hideous faces, and the first thing they even talk about is sex!
** And in ''Samurai X'', we have Iizuka, Kenshin's 'handler', drawn noticeably less attractive than the rest of the male cast [[spoiler: likely because of his propensity for betrayal.]]



* Several side-characters from ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' are drawn completely different from the main cast. Chiri Kitsu shifts to a Gonk [[AxeCrazy as needed]].

to:

* ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' utterly subverts this, being able to have attractive and unattractive characters from one end of the spectrum to the other and in between without any stylistic major shifts.
** In one episode, Fuu is forced to work off her debt in a brothel. While "on display," she deliberately contorts her face into Gonk Mode to discourage customers from choosing her. Unfortunately, that face happens to catch the eye of another Gonk...

* [[FatBastard Buppa]], a gang leader in ''Anime/TokyoTribe 2'', from the [[MemeticMutation infamous]] "[[RapeIsFunnyWhenItsMaleOnMale Goosh Goosh]]" sequence.

%%* [[http://www.mangareader.net/125-6173-31/vinland-saga/chapter-1.html This guy]] from the first chapter of ''Manga/VinlandSaga''. Noteable for looking incredibly cartoonish in a series where most characters look fairly realistic.
* ''Manga/WolfGuyWolfenCrest'' High school student and gang member Kuroda looks like an unholy union between a Beatles member and an oversized rat. Don't expect his twin brother to have any striking good looks either. Despite his muscular physique and rather handsome countenance, Dou also counts in his own feral way.

Don't expect his twin brother to have any striking good looks either. Despite his muscular physique and rather handsome countenance, Dou also counts in his own feral way.
* One of the more prominent running gags in ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' involves Ragnarok member Loki having numerous body doubles a la Saddam. One of the body doubles is moderately gonky and looks extremely out of place when compared to the rest. Come to think of it, [[http://blog.seiha.org/images/kenichi33/kenichi33%20(13).jpg he]] bears a passing resemblence to [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers Henchman 21]].
* One character from ''Manga/KareKano'' who was the ClassRepresentative of another class who has the head of a ''real person''.
* Arguably, 8th from ''Manga/FutureDiary''. She's meant to look more like a cute chibi than outwardly grotesque, but her appearance compared to the other characters can be quite jarring.
* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' most minor villains, especially those belonging to gangs, are Gonks.
** A group among Shishio's followers, the Priests of Abukuma, are particularly notable. Each one of the four have the most comically hideous faces, and the first thing they even talk about is sex!
** And in ''Samurai X'', we have Iizuka, Kenshin's 'handler', drawn noticeably less attractive than the rest of the male cast [[spoiler: likely because of his propensity for betrayal.]]
* The linemen Kurita and Komosubi of ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' are both pretty gonk, though in an UglyCute sort of way. In contrast to most examples, they are part of the main cast and are every bit as important and well-developed as their more attractive team members.
** Kasamatsu of the Taiyo Sphinx. He's about as tall as the average character in the series, but he's about three times as wide, with a really exaggerated face. He really, REALLY stands out among the other two important members on his team, the bishounen Harao, and the adult-looking Banba.
* A few characters from ''Manga/KarateShoukoushiKohinataMinoru'', most notably Kevin and Hayama.
* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', there's Virgo's initial appearance under the ownership of Everlue. This is because Virgo is so loyal to whoever her master is that she actually changes her looks to whatever pleases them most. Under Lucy's ownership, she's one of the prettiest characters in the series.
* Done in a very literal way in the ''LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokurochan'' anime when one of Sakura's classmates is turned into a monkey. His face and head are animated in a paper cutout style, in a completely different form of animation from the rest of the show.
** Let us not forget about the angels with their halos removed. [[spoiler: Extreme case of explosive diarrhea happens. Poor bastards.]]
* Inko-chan from ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'' is a pet parrot Gonk, of all things.
* Calmaramon of ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'', who Slide-Digivolves from the idol [[AlphaBitch Ranamon]] is Gonk in her universe, something which causes her to lose her entire fan club. Think Ursula from ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' meets anime. A picture doesn't really tell you much, you have to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is6cwt5Tw4c&t=4m0s watch the show]] and [[MostAnnoyingSound hear her laugh]] to truly understand her Gonk.
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' has the Armstrong family where the father and the mother and the middle children look pretty much the same except for the oldest and [[{{Kawaiiko}} youngest.]]
** Also, Gluttony, who basically looks like a bigger, more menacing ComicStrip/{{Ziggy}}.
* Most of Tsukimi's friends in ''Manga/PrincessJellyfish'' fall on the Gonky side, especially compared to their gender-flipped NerdNanny, [[{{Bishonen}} Kuranosuke]].
* In the infamous "Sandbox Sequence" from the complementary conclusion to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', ''The End of Evangelion'', Shinji sees two doll-like girls with very disturbingly-accentuated features, that definitely fall under Gonk. As with ''Anime/PerfectBlue'' (see above), it is '''NOT''' played for laughs.
* [[FatBastard Buppa]], a gang leader in ''Anime/TokyoTribe 2'', from the [[MemeticMutation infamous]] "[[RapeIsFunnyWhenItsMaleOnMale Goosh Goosh]]" sequence.
* Gokita from ''Manga/AddictedToCurry''.
* Played for laughs in the anime version of ''[[Anime/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]''. The girls wanted to be more adult, wearing make-up, high heels, padding... It... doesn't end well.
%%* [[http://www.mangareader.net/125-6173-31/vinland-saga/chapter-1.html This guy]] from the first chapter of ''Manga/VinlandSaga''. Noteable for looking incredibly cartoonish in a series where most characters look fairly realistic.
* ''LightNovel/TheDevilIsAPartTimer'' has the main characters' landlady, so much so that the guys (who are ''TheDevil and a demon'') are freaked out the first time they see her.
--> "Is it ... ''human?''"
** When they see [[FanDisservice a picture of her in her swimsuit]], Maou and Lucifer both pass out and Alciel throws up. Alciel later tries to use the picture as a weapon.
* Andre from ''Manga/PrisonSchool''. He's large, has an egg shaped body, a face that is way too small for the rest of his head, and over-sized Buddha-like earlobes.
* In ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'', as a contrast to King's normal child-like fairy form, his human form is a fat slob-looking man
* Many of the titular Titans from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. They are generally designed to look like misshapen mockeries of human beings with ridiculously goofy facial expressions. This doesn't make them any less terrifying in-universe. The ones shown that ''don't'' qualify for this trope (the Colossal Titan, the Armored Titan, [[spoiler:Eren and the Female Titan]]) are even more dangerous.
* Inverted in the original manga of ''Anime/CuteyHoney''. Every character is downright ugly (Specially the girls) with the exception of Honey, Natsuko, Seiji and his little brother, who in contrast look like the NonStandardCharacterDesign.
* Takeo Gouda, the protagonist of ''Manga/MyLoveStory'' is a massive dude with a large nose, large lips and a very plain haircut. His best friend Suna however is a thin, handsome guy of average height. In any other story, Suna would be the protagonist while Takeo would be the BromanticFoil. Takeo's girlfriend thinks he is gorgeous and his lips remind her of a movie star's.
* Senritsu's original design from ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' was this, though once she got a speaking role she got a facelift to UglyCute.
* Most of the humans' design in ''Manga/MidoriNoMakibao'' crosses into this trope. Humans in the series are often drawn with large lips and impressive nose holes
* Every single male monster shown so far in ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', in sharp contrast to the attractive if occasionally dangerous looking monster girls. First were the orcs, who were ugly [[PigMan pig men]], followed by the male centaurs, who managed to make the orcs look downright {{Bishonen}}.
* In ''Manga/TheHatingGirl'', any character that's inherently negative is drawn as being quite ugly, and the main characters get the same treatment whenever they take on negative traits. It's especially pronounced for delinquents (and Asumi when she starts acting like one) and for the rude, lecherous upperclassmen.
Tarukane.

* From ''SuperMarioBros'', we have [[FatBastard Wario]] and [[LeanAndMean Waluigi]]: with their [[GagNose big pink noses]], wicked mustaches, exaggerated bodily proportions, and perma grimaces; they resemble caricatures of [[OddballDoppleganger Mario and Luigi]] more than anything. However that's part of their charm.
