Added namespaces.
* Played with interestingly for the Beauty and Beast Corps from ''MetalGearSolid4''. While they are perfectly normal women (if AxCrazy) under their PoweredArmor, the armor invokes this by making them look like cybernetic monsters. Defeating them in their armored form causes it to fall off, revealing that they're quite fetching under the mask. They actually embody ''both'' sides of the trope-their armor shows the duality of a vicious, inhuman soldier contrasted with the terrified, broken victim wearing it, while their real forms contrast a beautiful, serene exterior with an inner core [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds damaged beyond the ability of anyone to repair.]] * In the Official Fan Remake of KingsQuestIII they completely overhauled the Medusa scenario (Originally all you do is hold out a mirror while your back is turned). In this version, they give her a complete backstory, and Alexander has to unfreeze her heart by proving that there are still pure men in the world. If you manage to remind her of the beauty in men, she gains the appearance of a beautiful woman, albeit still with green skin and snake hair (Before her curse is lifted completely and she becomes a pretty blond woman).

* 'Inner Moka' from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' is supposedly a terrifying 'super-vampire', a monster that even other monsters fear. She looks like [[http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/1566/innermoka.jpg this]].

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

* GURPS Banestorm points out that Medusae typically have the Beautiful Appearance advantage.

** Euryale is not unnattractive by conventional standards. But she does complain that in two thousand years the only serious boyfriend she had was a hydra. Who ''really'' wanted a relationship with her snakes...

* In Comicbook/{{Superman}} comics, at least [[PreCrisis before the Crisis]], the facet-skinned Bizarros were odd-looking, but never as ugly as everyone seemed to react to them as being. The Bizarro Loises, in particular, were usually drawn with attractive figures and really nice legs (they ''were'' all imperfect copies of ''Lois,'' after all).

** Her updated look in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' does fit the bill; except for her [[http://www.kidicaruswiki.org/File:MedusaPict.png pale skin and the snakes on her head]], she looks pretty good. This is likely her uncursed Goddess form, rather than the monster Palutena turned her into.

This is likely her uncursed Goddess form, rather than the monster Palutena turned her into. A particularly interesting take on the gorgon design since she has normal (albeit [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair green]]) hair growing from her head as well as the snakes.

* The ''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.
