* Elves in Creator/JRRTolkien's works are almost invariably described as being good-looking. The three best looking females in Middle-earth are all part elvish. The Valar and Maiar also count, although they cheat -- their bodies are artificial and custom-made, so their beauty is limited only by imagination and how Fallen they've become.

Added DiffLines:

* The [[{{Youkai}} youkai]] in ''Manga/{{InuYasha}}'' can take on a human-like form [[MonstrosityEqualsWeakness if they are especially powerful]]. And each of them looks much more beautiful in this form than any human being.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' has many characters who are [[DivineParentage the descendants of humans and Greek gods]]. It is mentioned that the children of Aphrodite (boys and girls), in most cases look very pretty.
* There are three examples in ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments''.
** The [[{{Nephilim}} shadowhunters]] qualify for it, although there are a few exceptions. Overall, they are considered very pretty.
** Even prettier are [[TheFairFolk the fairies]]. Any fairy that looks human-like is described as very beautiful.
** The [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] are among them. When a human is turned into a vampire, he also gets prettier.

Added DiffLines:

** The Kialli are inhuman and their bodies are whatever they can force the Earth to give them, so they're limited by the combination of how much power they have and how much they care. Most are going more for terrifying than pretty.

* The Asari in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' are a feminine-seeming but technically genderless race of aliens with natural Biotic powers, that mates by close telepathic contact and can do that with every known humanoid species in the galaxy, as the genetic material is taken from the mother and randomized by the father. Despite almost universally considering each other ugly, all the other species consider Asari very attractive and as looking similar to them. It even works on Salarians, who reproduce as hives in which the vast majority of individuals are males that never have sex in their entire life, and also somehow seems to affect people who only see pictures or recordings of Asari without being near one.

Despite almost universally considering each other ugly, all the other species consider Asari very attractive and as looking similar to them. The second game has a funny scene where a Human, a Turian, and a Salarian are all watching an Asari stripper and all three seem genuinely confused that either of the others has any interest in her.

* [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Mermaids]] in ''Manga/OnePiece'', especially the Mermaid Princess Shirahoshi, are the dreams of many a sailor to witness, said to surpass even the WorldsMostBeautifulWoman Boa Hancock. Even [[spoiler:Kokoro]], whose appearance shocked several of the protagonists unconscious (with one later actively forgetting her existence when a decidedly more attractive mermaid shows up a few arcs later), was revealed in the series' mail slot to be just as pretty as you'd expect when she was younger. Unfortunately, this also makes them the most desired species for slavery.

Added DiffLines:

** Aasimar (humans with celestial ancestry) are nearly always described as this too; tall, slender, blonde or silver hair, naturally tanned... though sometimes they're described with features which are just a bit freaky.

* TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}: Angels (who personify and promote beauty), and Excrucians (who are a race of AffablyEvil {{Humanoid Abomination}}s who desire to RetGone reality and return it to the PrimordialChaos they came from) are both embodiments of beauty for differing reasons-Angels are like this because Beauty is what they are and desire from others (to the exclusion of everything else), while Excrucians embody the primal majesty and unfettered elegance of alien stars.

* In ''Fanfic/AmbienceAFleetSymphony'', shipgirls are described as generally being better-looking than human women. Also deconstructed, various unsavoury types male and female alike take advantage of them for that very reason.
