Has A Type can be a physical archetype or an emotional one. Some characters prefer a certain ''look'', while others prefer the relationship any physical body can bring. The important thing is that, from one relationship to the next, the character is consistent in his or her desires.

** Scully's type is powerful men; she dated two professors of hers and ended the series with Mulder, who is technically her superior.

* Yamato in ''VisualNovel/MajiDeWatashiNiKoishinasai'' likes CoolBigSis figures more than others, which is convenient because they tend to gravitate towards him as well. He notes when going for someone like Mayucchi that they're outside his normal strikezone. For the likes of Monshiro, he's explicitly waiting for her to grow older because he's not really physically attracted to her given her age. That said, the most popular heroines tend to be those like Benkei, Tsubame and Margit who are most definitely exactly his type because he really does have the most chemistry with girls a bit older than him.

* In ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead'', [[ActionGirl Michonne]] is only attracted to [[LikeGoesWithLike black men]]. Heath accuses her of also targeting men who are "taken" in order to prove she is better than other women, although her second love interest is a widower and unattached; the more likely motivation is that since there are so few black men to choose from, she goes after any who seem receptive even if they are still officially with another woman.

[[AC:Film]] * In ''Film/ShallowHal'', Hal describes his ideal woman to Tony Robbins. -->'''Hal:''' The problem is I'm kinda picky. -->'''Tony:''' What do you mean, ''picky''? -->'''Hal:''' Well, for instance, I like 'em real young. Like, did you ever see Paulina [Porizkova] in her first ''Sports Illustrated'' layout? -->'''Tony:''' You're looking for a young Paulina type? -->'''Hal:''' That face, but with better headlights. You know how hers have kind of dimmed lately? Heidi Klum's beams would do. And her teeth. Or that Music/BritneySpears girl. She's got great knockers. But she's a tad muscular. Actually, you know what? Her ass would do, too, if she had a better grille. Like Michelle Pfeiffer back when she did ''Film/{{Grease}}''. But she'd have to be a little smilier than Michelle. Like Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, before she got Stamosed. But not as skinny. Someone meatier, like Heidi, but without the accent. You know those accents: yah-yah-yah-yah. They really get old fast.

[[AC:Literature]] * ''Literature/{{Gor}}:'' The author loves submissive sluts. As for characters... ** In ''Vagabonds of Gor'', Marcus has a type he's "almost insanely" attracted to: slim, exquisite, very lightly complexioned, dark-haired, dark-eyed. ** In ''Kur of Gor'', Tarl is imprisoned with a woman whom the Priet-Kings have selected as being a perfect match to his desires, and he to her; but he can't do anything about it because she is a free woman and his Codes forbid acting upon those desires. This, Tarl presumes, is intended as torture. Of course once she becomes a slave he is no longer forbidden from acting. * ''Literature/CiaphasCain'', THE HERO OF THE IMPERIUM, prefers blondes (as he explains to the dark-haired cultist he shoots after [[AntiMagic Jurgen]] prevents her from {{mind control}}ling and sacrificing him). * In ''Literature/LittleWomen'', Amy says while she being courted by a wealthy man that she's always known that she's going to marry a man who's rich.

[[AC:WebOriginal]] * WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic gets it bad for curvy, slightly psychotic brunettes who'll dominate him. When doing a list of favorite animated women [[IAmNotSpock as]] Creator/DougWalker, however, his choices are a bit different. He notes that most of the women he chose were nice, but not pushovers, and that he seems to have a thing for Southern accents and workaholics. * WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick: {{Discussed|Trope}} in her list of Hottest Animated Guys, where she suggests that women tend to be more type-oriented than men. However the dominant type (for the Chick and her viewers) seems to be "[[TroubledButCute bad boys]]". [[WomenPreferStrongMen Elisa]], meanwhile, loves stoic guys (like [[{{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}} Goliath]] and WesternAnimation/{{Batman|TheAnimatedSeries}}) while [[WeaknessTurnsHerOn Nella]] prefers cute [[TheWoobie Woobies]] (like [[Disney/{{Pocahontas}} Thomas]] and [[WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}} Dmitri]]). There's also a RunningGag that the Chick loves [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation blue guys]], like {{WesternAnimation/Megamind}}, [[{{Disney/Hercules}} Hades]] and ''especially'' [[Franchise/XMen Nightcrawler]]. She also admits to loving characters who start as "lovable curmudgeons" and become nicer over time.

* Christian Grey in ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'' has a type: shortish, dark-haired young women with light eyes. Apparently they remind him of [[MommyIssues his late mother]]. Ana fits this profile perfectly.

Ana fits this profile perfectly. This isn't a question of interpretation, either. Grey tells Ana this outright in ''Fifty Shades Darker'': --> “...I like to whip little brown-haired girls like you because you all look like the crack whore—my birth mother. I’m sure you can guess why.”
