* In ''Film/TheSaint'', the character Emma Russell is implied to be a wallflower who rarely receives male attention, which makes her very vulnerable to Simon Templar's seduction technique. She's played by Elizabeth Shue, who is quite attractive.

* Played for laughs in both ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' games. GlaDOS [[spoiler:and Wheatley]], amidst taunting her about being an orphan, repeatedly point out that [[http://i1.theportalwiki.net/img/4/40/Chell.png Chell]] is fat, pale, and ugly to try and demoralize her. [[TheVoiceless It]] [[TheDeterminator doesn't]] [[TheStoic work.]] * Dorothy of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Binding Blade]] is supposed to be homely. Her sprite portrait is better at this than the artwork, but the problem is still mostly with her drab brown outfit and haircut (and lack of confidence).

** Chester A. Bum is depicted as a dirty, crazy homeless man with old clothes and unkempt hair. But it's still Doug Walker. This is (probably unintentionally) [[LampshadeHaging lampshaded]] by a YouTube user that uploads Bum Reviews whose handle is "hotbumfan".

In the J-Drama, she's played by [[http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/8754/maoinouepix018lq.jpg Inoue Mao]]. It's ultimately averted as the only people who claim she isn't cute are people who hate her.

* Every now and then, tabloids will run a "shocking" cover story on how starlets look without makeup as they go about their day-to-day lives. Since "[[FauxHorrific Actress Without Makeup Looks Like Average Woman]]" isn't much of a story, such tabloids will choose the absolute worst candid photo possible, where the celeb in question is visibly tired, upset, and/or shot from an unflattering angle, and suddenly she's on drugs, has an eating disorder, is pregnant, etc. And if ''that'' weren't enough, the pic is then compared to her best glamour shot, with the rather ironic implication that nothing in Hollywood is real.

* in ''BetterDays'', both [[http://www.jaynaylor.com/betterdays/comic/BD235.05-07-15.gif Marvin]] and [[http://www.jaynaylor.com/betterdays/comic/BD225.05-06-10.gif Marissa]] are treated as being pretty unattractive. Fisk is shocked the instant he sees Marissa, having assumed she got some of the "hereditary hottability" that her cheerleader sister had, and Lucy reacts with pity the instant she sees Elizabeth with Marvin. The trouble is, both of them are drawn in the standard cute animal style, so it's really impossible to tell that they're supposed to be that undesirable. In the case of Marissa it has more to do with her Che Guevara t-shirt and the implications of her political leanings than what she looks like. Fisk is an {{Author Avatar}} of Jay Naylor, who is opposed to communism and hates Che Guevara.

* The entire premise of ''Film/TheDUFF'' hinges on the notion that Creator/MaeWhitman could pass for a "Designated Ugly Fat Friend", just because she's slightly huskier than the other leading female character. Though it's made clear that you don't have to be ugly or fat to count as such.

Though it's made clear that you don't have to be ugly or fat to count as such. Still, it's emphasized that she's unpopular because she's awkward and shy and has "unpopular tastes," but even then, someone as attractive as Whitman makes awkwardness much more charming and endearing, and her "strange tastes" (liking old or obscure movies) aren't really that strange or unpopular enough to warrant anyone running for the hills.

* ''WanderingSon'': Makoto is at least cute. She finds herself unattractive due to her YouthfulFreckles and NerdGlasses. She's chubbier and rounder than the other characters, as well. {{Justified|Trope}} since its most of the criticism is her own opinion, and at least every other character has gone out of their way to tell her she's cute; Mako doesn't have good self-esteem. Seya once thought she made an ugly girl when she met him in girl mode though.
