* Creator/RumikoTakahashi uses the variation Hot Guys are moronic buffoons, characters such as [[Manga/UruseiYatsura Mendou, Rei]] and [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Tatewaki Kuno]] are good examples. Rei is probably the best example as the {{Cute Monster G|irl}}uy is so dumb he can only say a few words very slowly. Due to the [[OnlySixFaces art]] [[GenericCuteness style]] they often don't look that much more attractive than the other characters.

* Asuka Langley Soryu from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. In '''spades'''. However, in her case, it's a '''''brutal''''' [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] of this trope: she's a hot bitch, yeah, yet not only she doesn't get away with her antics (Touji is annoyed to no end by her, Shinji puts up with it because he's deeply fucked up, Rei is indifferent most of the time, etc.), but she's subjected to an horrifying BreakTheHaughty process that reveals her terrible DarkAndTroubledPast.

** ''Animal House'' tries to have it both ways. The opposite number of Omega House's [[BlondGuysAreEvil Gregg Marmalard]] is clearly Eric Stratton, who's just as handsome as Gregg is but is clearly intended to be the DesignatedHero. But if you consider Gregg's "good" counterpart to be John Blutarski (who ''does'' ultimately succeed in wooing Mandy Pepperidge away from him, after all), then this trope is played straight.

* Ajax, the BigBad of ''{{Film/Deadpool2016}}'', is a cruel and sadistic MadScientist who performs torturous experiments on people to turn them into super-powered slaves. He's also played by Ed Skrein, who, in the closing credit sequence, is regarded by the cartoon Deadpool as the "hottest" of the actors.

This trope is not gender exclusive - attractive women can display unpleasant personalities, hence the trope's alternate name. Female characters of ''any'' moral fiber who are presented in visual media tend to be good-looking (for more on this, see HollywoodHomely and MostWritersAreMale) - making it rare for any fiction to draw this trope's direct correlation between beauty and nastiness.

According to many movies, books, and TV shows, seriously good-looking men will usually turn out to have character defects making them just short of the AntiChrist. Polar opposite of BeautyEqualsGoodness -- originally a subversion of the trope, now has pretty much become a stereotype in itself. The JerkJock stereotype all grown up. In contrast, [[NerdsAreInnocent nerdy-looking or plain characters are usually nice]].

Might happen because the authors are dealing with their own issues (ex-girlfriends or nerds). If it's the latter, the plain nice guy wins. If the former, then a fantasy idol who is an exception will be in the story.
