** Most, if not all, of the actresses playing "geeky sidekicks" (Creator/EmilyOsment, Ashley Tisdale and [[ThatsSoRaven Anneliese Van Der Pol]], for example) are ''at least'' as attractive and charismatic as the shows' stars, but play awkward or {{Cloudcuckoolander}} characters in nerdy clothes or glasses.

* ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'': One episode involved the GirlOfTheWeek bribing Will into go ing on dates with her, despite him being unattracted to her. At one point, Judge Carl Robertson makes fun of her appearance. However, it's pretty obvious that the girl in question is a pretty actress who just happens to have unflattering hair and clothes, and glasses. Hilariously, said girl eventually reveals that she views Will as the Hollywood Homely with his stupid haircut and his big ears, and only bribed him to go out with her to raise her own popularity. This is Will Smith.

* While Lulu from ''Literature/DeathMarchingToTheParallelWorldRhapsody'' is considered a {{Bishoujo}} by those from Japan, she is considered to have an unfortunate, ugly look in her own world.

* Music/KatyPerry. In the video for [[WildTeenParty "Last Friday Night (TGIF)"]], they give her [[HollywoodNerd big glasses, headgear, and a ponytail]], and they still cannot hide the fact that it's Katy Perry under there. Just ask the HollywoodNerd that falls for her.

* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'', Solid Snake is supposed to be so ugly as a result of his accelerated ageing disease that at one point, when he takes his shirt off, he actually makes a grown woman cry. (His younger self was supposed to be a [[SlidingScaleOfBeauty World Class Beauty]], and women immediately show interest in him when he's wearing [[LatexPerfection makeup to look like his younger self]].) In practice, he still has a great body and finding him more attractive than his younger self is ''not'' a niche opinion amongst Solid Snake's generous EstrogenBrigade; people frequently remark that his younger self as it was rendered in ''MetalGearSolid4'' looks [[UncannyValley awkward-looking]] or even outright ugly, but as an old man he is extremely charismatic. The bottom line is that he looks like a very fit 80-year-old when he's 42.

They make this character "plain" by giving them some or all of the following: thick glasses, braces, making them non-white, 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ThirtyRock'': In the season 2 episode Somebody to Love, Edie Falco explains that six reconstructive surgeries made her much better-looking than she used to be, and Alec Baldwin gets a slap for saying she did make love like an ugly girl. In the Lifetime movie about the Falco character, the ugly version is played by Hollywood homely Kristen Wiig.

* AvrilLavigne. In the video for "Girlfriend", we're supposed to believe that Avril's bratty punk-like "bad girl" character is more desirable than the nerdy girlfriend. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQ25-glGRzI That's a tough sell....]] (WordOfGod says it's supposed to be satirical, but if that's true, it sure has one hell of a MisaimedFandom.).
