* Peggy Olson of ''Series/MadMen'' is repeatedly criticized and bullied for her appearance in the earlier seasons. Elizabeth Moss, and the character of Peggy for that matter, are at worst in the high range of average in appearance. To add to the irony, one of her main tormentors eerily resembles Pee-wee Herman; Could likely be referencing how men can traditionally get away with being less than dapper and movie-star esque, even in a profession that is known for promoting a rigid standard of beauty and appearance for women as a way to sell products.

** While Moe Szyslak is quite odd-looking compared to other characters, people act like he's hideous and even inhuman. His PerpetualFrowner expression and {{Jerkass}} behavior only seem to amplify the problem. His appearance is downplayed in the few episodes where he's actually pleasant.

* On ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', Mrs. Hudson is frequently mentioned to have a bad hip (she herself refers to it as "atrocious.") However, she doesn't use any kind of walking aid, has no visible limp, and seems to get up and down the stairs of 221B Baker Street with relative ease.

* Sweden in Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia is said to be utterly terrifying. Prussia faints multiple times just looking at him, but he really doesn't look much different than most of the other characters.

** Mike and Tamara's son, [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude Shazam Wil-Wheaton]], is consistently described as hideous by anyone but his parents, but for years he [[TheFaceless was only shown from behind]] because the author doubted he could live up to the hype. This phenomenon is {{Discussed}} when [[http://somethingpositive.net/sp01072013.shtml Shaz's face is finally seen]].
