* Barney Stinson declares in the pilot of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' that he's discarded his old type (half-Asian girls) for a new type (Lebanese girls). Later he declares he doesn't ''have'' a type; that's crass and limiting. Despite this, observations do point out that he is drawn to a certain type of women. His type is naive bimbos with daddy issues. However, his eventual main interest is with [[spoiler:Robin]], who has daddy issues but is very intelligent. Given that Barney also has some dad problems and can be percieved as shallow, but is more intelligent than he appears, makes a good amount of sense.

* 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 [[DefrostingIceQueen become nicer over time.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has a WholeEpisodeFlashback about how [[BumblingDad Greg]] met [[PosthumousCharacter Rose Quartz]]. When Greg tells his (then) manager [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk Marty]] about her, Marty asks how "big" she was, implying that Greg's LoveAtFirstSight for the [[BigBeautifulWoman chubby]], [[StatuesqueStunner eight-foot-tall]] Rose was no coincidence. Further shown when [[spoiler: Andy DeMayo, Greg's cousin]], intially believed that Garnet was Steven's mother, due to how tall she was, showing that Greg's preferences have been around for a while.
** PlayedWith in another episode. Prior to ''Last One Out of Beach City'', Pearl has shown no attraction to anyone, Gem or Human, [[SingleTargetSexuality other than Rose Quartz]]. In the titular episode, Pearl quickly develops a crush on a tall woman with a curvy build and pink hair. Steven calls this out as soon as they get back to the car.

* Discussed in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''. Goku and Vegeta talks how despite how aggressive their wives are (Chi-Chi and Bulma respectively), that's what they love about them. Vegeta himself explained because it's in their Saiyan blood and they are as strong-willed as Saiyan women.

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.
