* Doctor Doom uses his mask to hide a horribly scarred face inflicted by Reed Richards. [[DependingOnTheAuthor Some writers]] have the scar as a little cut on his cheek and the mask as him being incredibly vain. Others have it that it started out this way, but then he [[TooDumbToLive put the mask on while it was still hot from the forge,]] giving himself a genuinely gruesome face.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': The signature GlowingEyes that Cloud has as a result of his exposure to Mako energy are continually mentioned in the script of the original game, but not visible whatsoever on his field model, character model, or even his menu portraits. They do ''occasionally'' glow in some of the [=FMVs=], but due to the [[ArtShift inconsistent art style]] of the game, it's only visible in the ending movie, and only in a few scenes of it even at that point. Even in ''Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren'', his eyes have a vivid green ring around the pupil and do all sorts of strange things during his possession episodes (including HellishPupils), but don't glow other than that, even in scenes taking place in the dark. His eyes are finally seen actually glowing in ''Anime/LastOrder'', including at a point where Cloud hadn't actually been exposed to Mako energy yet, making it even more bizarre. Finally averted by ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIIRemake'' and Cloud's cameo in ''VideoGame/MobiusFinalFantasy'', where Cloud's eyes have the clear and continuous glow that's referenced in the text.

In ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'', the exact same eye textures are used for Cloud both before and after his Mako exposure, and even the FMV extreme closeup on the "SOLDIER 1st Class" Cloud at the end of the game doesn't show a glow at all. His eyes are finally seen actually glowing in ''Anime/LastOrder'', including at a point where Cloud hadn't actually been exposed to Mako energy yet, making it even more bizarre.

* Saber from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' bluntly says that her body must look ugly to men thanks to it being overly muscled. The problem is, she has the body of a (very) skinny fifteen-year-old girl, which can be clearly seen as the whole scene takes place in a bath. She also adds that Rin has a nice and young feminine body, unlike her -- but Rin is actually physically older and taller, and if anything, has a more muscular build than Saber. Saber looks exactly the same in flashbacks to her previous life, too (according to ''FSN''-mythos, she stopped aging when she first got her sword).



* In ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'', the characters comment on how old Lotus is. She's 40 and doesn't really "look" old. Though you could argue that the ones who comment on it the most ([[TheHero Junpei]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Santa]], and [[TheBigGuy Seven]]) are simply doing with it to mess with her. Junpei actually seems a bit... overwhelmed by her presence when he first meets her, and at one point [[TheChick June]] laments that she knows guys would prefer someone who looks like Lotus over herself. It should be telling that she manages to pull off a {{Stripperiffic}}, AbsoluteCleavage harem-girl outfit at 40.



* Saki from ''VisualNovel/SnowSakura'' is teased as being flat-chested every now and then. However, when you're looking at her, there's not any angle that you can consider her chest flat.

*** The game insists the main characters are wearing ugly, boring military uniforms (which the characters even complain about having to wear) despite the fact that they're dressed in extremely stylish, CostumePorn-level designer clothing reflecting their individual personalities. Supposedly this was a deliberate attempt to evoke the feeling of ''Film/WilliamShakespearesRomeoAndJuliet'', which has a similar dissonance between stylish modern visuals and a less fashionable script.
*** Noctis is described as being scrawny in appearance and a bit on the flabby, unfit side due to his sickly upbringing, lazy streak and crappy diet. He looks like a slim, sturdy youth with nice, even muscle tone.

* In ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'', George Michael's girlfriend Ann's plainness is [[RunningGag constantly commented on]] by almost every character, although [[MaeWhitman the actress playing Ann]] was actually fairly cute. Exacerbated by the fact that George Michael is played by Creator/MichaelCera, not the most attractive guy himself.

* ''VivaPinata'' has the Pigxie species, which everyone treats as a horribly deformed freak of nature. While "freak of nature" is technically correct (you get them by crossbreeding two different species that should not normally be able to romance), they are, appearance-wise, perfectly normal [[CueTheFlyingPigs flying pigs.]]

* The DoctorWho episode 'The Angels Take Manhattan' has the main cast point out Amy's visible aging (specifically lines under her eyes), except that nothing has been done to make Karen Gillan actually look older. Amy looks the same as she did at the beginning of the season, which is supposedly years and years earlier from her point of view.

** In one episode the girls make a list that ranks the boys from cutest to ugliest, and Kyle happens to be at the bottom [[spoiler:after its manipulated by Bebe and her cohorts]]. When he talks to his parents about it they say he looks fine, and also mention that he has his mother's nose. This freaks Kyle out, because her nose is rather large and stereotypically Jewish. Kyle, like most of the other kids, [[TheNoseless has no visible nose]].

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', several characters will note that Link's body is [[CoveredInScars littered with faint scars]], with one character even requesting he strip down and show them to confirm that he is in fact Link. None of this appears on his character model.
