** Aveline's exact words are "You're not ''that'' good-looking," implying less that Isabella lacks physical charms and more that those charms alone aren't enough to explain [[ReallyGetsAround the sheer amount of sex she manages to have.]]

* Sakie Sato in ''Manga/InterviewsWithMonsterGirls'' {{invoke|dtrope}}s this trope, because she's a [[HornyDevil succubus]] but is [[ReluctantMonster unwilling to seduce anyone]], so she tries to make herself less attractive by wearing a track jacket and pants, and gives herself an unflattering hairdo. Even all that doesn't stop others from considering her to be pretty.

* ''Series/30Rock'': Liz Lemon is seen as unattractive and gross by most of the other characters on the show. This is despite being played by Tina Fey who is far from ugly in real life.

** In "The Rocky Horror Glee Show," Finn is feeling insecure about having to strip down to his underwear for the role of Brad. He decides to overcome it by walking through the school hallway in his boxers, causing people to pass out in horror. When Finn is suspended, the principal says that 9 students requested after school counseling, and they had bring to in a grief counselor. One may argue that Finn isn't the hottest guy on the show, but his body is [[http://i56.tinypic.com/10p67gw.jpg far from traumatizing]]

* TaylorSwift. In the video for [[http://www.cmt.com/videos/taylor-swift/377889/you-belong-with-me.jhtml "You Belong With Me"]], they put her in [[HollywoodNerd really big glasses and a band uniform]] and we're supposed to believe she's The Plain Girl. Yeah, right. Just to drive the trope home, the 'hot cheerleader' is played by... TaylorSwift, in a brunette wig.

They make this character "plain" by giving them some or all of the following: thick glasses, braces, freckles, unfashionable clothes, an unflattering hairstyle, and a better-looking sibling or friend. A more subtle method involves giving the actor clothes that clash with their natural skin color, making them look pale or blotchy -- a method also used in "[[BeforeAndAfterPictures before-and-after]]" shots for diet-pill commercials. Bad lighting can help.

-->[[http://www.headinjurytheater.com/article70.htm Jared Hindman]]: I mean, not to say that I have some ugly friends, but... well, I have some ugly friends. I think we all know someone who's definitively less attractive than Gerard there and THEY don't wear a mask and bemoan their accursed fate.

* The genre of [[http://www.dressupwho.com/makeover-games/ online makeover games]] fall hard into this trope. In them, your goal is to make a girl pretty with beauty products and makeup... but more often than not, the only things that make the girl "ugly" or "plain" to begin with are acne, unflattering clothes, and occasionally bad teeth. It's especially laughable in the makeover games featuring [[Franchise/DisneyPrincess Disney princesses]] in which the pre-makeover girl is clearly a stock image of the already-beautiful Disney princess with some pimples and hairs drawn on their face, not to mention the makeover games in which the ''only'' criteria for the girl needing a makeover are that she has dyed hair and tattoos!

* ''Series/{{Merlin}}: In the first season, Guinevere is a very plain servant girl; this is achieved by "plaining down" the lovely Angel Coulby. Starting with season 2, Gwen gets nicer outfits and less effort is made to hide the actress's natural beauty.

* Music/AshleyTisdale played a nerdy girl in ''Film/PictureThis''. One of the earliest shown pieces of 'evidence' that she's a nerd is a scene that makes a big deal about her wearing 'granny panties' Except, it's not grannie panties, it's clearly a thong; you can see the leg holes of it. It's a [[GoofyPrintUnderwear cartoon print thong]], but still a thong. The most the film does is give her {{tomboy}} looking clothes and big glasses.
