* 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.).

** 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
