* ''FanFic/{{crawlersout}}'': Fem!Harry's is TallDarkAndHandsome. When she was a Hogwarts student, she had things for both Oliver Wood and Cedric Diggory. Notably, she has yet to notice that this is what her charge Tom Riddle Jr. will grow up to be as long as he doesn't mutilate himself with dark magic (they're set to be the OfficialCouple). The sole love interest she has that doesn't fit this archetype is Gellert Grindelwald who is tall and handsome but not dark (in appearance, [[BeautyIsBad at least]]). Even then, he's more like a StalkerWithACrush than an actual love interest.

* Roark Junior, a.k.a. The Yellow Bastard from ''Film/SinCity'' has a type: [[{{Lolicon}} little girls]]. He says that Nancy [[YoureNotMyType isn't his type anymore]] now that ShesAllGrownUp... but he's willing to make an exception. Partly to hurt Hartigan, partly because she's TheOneThatGotAway.

As a dramatic trope, this can occasionally take the form of FirstGirlWins, when the character keeps finding unacceptable substitutes for TheOneThatGotAway. Sometimes the character has a type that just doesn't work, and the [[LastGirlWins Last Girl]] breaks the pattern and lets him be happy. Sometimes it's comedy. Sometimes it's that the ''writer'' is the one with a type and it's AuthorAppeal.

List a character here if he's stated to have a type, or if the majority of the character's relationships fit a certain profile (please be more specific than "human"). If it's just YoureNotMyType, then don't put it here; unless it goes on to say what the type is, then that's just a rejection trope. If someone's type is "people who remind them of X", it's ReplacementGoldfish. May overlap with SerialSpouse or SerialRomeo.

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': Early on, Touma casually mentions that his type is [[CoolBigSis reliable older girls]]. This might be one reason he ignores the harem of girls competing for his attention: none of them really fit that type (Kanzaki comes closest, but is a bit too shy regarding romance to qualify).
