** The Cloud of Darkness in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII''. It's [[EldritchAbomination an avatar of pure destruction out to end existence]] ...but for some reason, it decides to take the form of a completely nude green woman. Her appearance in ''{{Dissidia|FinalFantasy}}'' is [[http://images.wikia.com/finalfantasy/images/1/19/Cloud_of_darkness.png pure fanservice]], though based on her [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100705042842/finalfantasy/images/3/3e/Amano_cod.jpg original concept art.]]

* The gorgons who appear in ''Franchise/{{Shadowchasers}}'' are rather attractive if you can get past the snake-hair. (Because interaction with humans is impossible in this reality, a gorgon can use simple dark sunglasses to render her gaze harmless.)

* The 2010 remake of ''{{Clash of the Titans|2010}}'' still has her as a scaly, serpent-tailed thing, but her face is [[EvilIsSexy very good looking]] due to being played by Russian model Natalia Vodianova. However, when she goes to turn men to stone, her entire face ''[[GameFace changes]]'' into something [[http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q318/Monster_Master316/Clash%20Remake/Medusa.jpg a lot less attractive]].

* Deliberately subverted in Creator/RayHarryhausen ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans.'' Ray felt that a woman with snakes in her hair was not monstrous enough, so he turned Medusa into a scaly, serpent-tailed, crone-like horror with fangs and GlowingEyesOfDoom that turned people to stone.

* The legendary demon of pure destruction, Razgriz, of ''VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar'' fame, is always referred as "it" in the game, but the few still images of "it" suggest that "it" is actually a woman ([[EvilRedhead and a redhead,]] [[RedHeadedHero to boot]]). Fanart creators universally think "it" is, in any case.

* In ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'', Nightcrawler is supposed to be demonic looking enough that the vast majority of people think of him as a literal demon upon seeing him. Though the personality is [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer (usually)]] enough to change people's opinions of him, it doesn't change the fact that he's sometimes drawn as a rather attractive blue elf, DependingOnTheArtist. Other times he has skin (or fur) so dark it's almost black, glowing yellow eyes, and a pointed tail. Throw in the smell of brimstone that's a side effect of his powers, and his features may be symmetrical and healthy in terms of attractiveness, but he's living in a setting in which AllTheOtherReindeer has been enacted into law at various times.

* The Medusae in the PS1 game ''Deathtrap Dungeon'' manage to both play this trope straight and subvert it - [[ButterFace their faces are pretty monstrous]], but [[MsFanservice their figures]], on the other hand...

* The ''Franchise/MonsterHigh'' doll Deuce Gorgon is a rare male example, who only has scales and snakes on his head, which he fashions into a mohawk. Otherwise, he is your typical handsome teen. To be fair, "attractive monster people" is pretty much the whole theme of the franchise.

Note that practically all "classical" art portrays {{Medusa}} (after her change) as horrific butt ugly [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medusa (see e.g. Caravaggio's take)]] and the whole CuteMonsterGirl and NotEvilJustMisunderstood thingie is a strictly modern interpretation.
