* The ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' fanfiction series ''CatTales'' has Selena and Barbara Gordon squee over meeting Creator/WoodyAllen, in this universe an iconic filmmaker of Gotham City, since the DC Universe does not have a New York City. Bruce and Dick are hilariously confused over the nerdish creators success with women.

* The title character of ''Literature/HoratioHornblower'' considers himself one. Though he attracts the affections of almost every woman who knows him for more than five minutes, when his first wife is pregnant for the first time he finds himself hoping the child doesn't have his looks, and in books set later in his life he ruefully contemplates his thinning hair and unthinning figure. However, Hornblower is a thoroughly UnreliableNarrator when it comes to assessing himself (his other wish for the child is that they don't have his unhappy, self-critical temperament either) so it's debatable how much this trope really applies. The best assessment is probably the first book's neutral description of having a face neither handsome nor ugly.

(For what it's worth, Hornblower's been played in film and tv by Gregory Peck and Ioan Gruffudd, so UnreliableNarrator ''really'' comes into play there.)

* Monk from the ''Franchise/DocSavage'' novels.

* Monk from the ''Franchise/DocSavage'' novels. He gets at least as many girls as the dapper and dashing Ham.


Added DiffLines:

* Chief Ranger Dan O'Brian from the ''Literature/KateShugak'' novels is built like a fireplug with red hair and freckles, but he never lacks for female company. This is a constant source of puzzlement to Bobby Clark and many of the other male characters.

* Downplayed with Dante Hick from ''Film/{{Clerks}}'' and ''Film/ClerksII''. He's by no means ugly, but lacks a spine and tends to {{wangst}} about everything, especially when he finds out that his girlfriend sucked 36 dicks before they got together. In spite of this, both films are plotted around him winding up in a love triangle with two women considerably out of his league (this has more to do with his commitment issues, but that more than one beautiful woman finds him attractive is astonishing). Lampshaded by Randal in the second film.

* ''VideoGame/MedievalIITotalWar'': Princesses who have the "Flawed Features" or even "Hideous" traits can nevertheless have a high Charm score. That is, even though they're considered physically unattractive in-universe, they can still make up for it with other traits (such as intelligence, loyalty, diplomatic skill, charisma, [[BadassPrincess courage]], passion, warmness, [[ModestRoyalty humility]], etc) and thus stand a good chance of finding a suitor.

The polar opposite of the CasanovaWannabe and the HandsomeLech, this character has a long list of conquests and can bend any woman to his will -- even though [[{{Gonk}} there's absolutely nothing attractive about him]]. In fact, he's a sleaze and/or looks like a baboon and/or treats women like garbage. Sensible, self-respecting women may scoff, but if so, he'll pull a [[InstantSeduction clever come-on line]] on them or practice his patented stare on them and they'll be suckered in just enough to be proven wrong.

JustifiedTrope per Victoria Zdrok, stating in her book ''Dr. Z on Scoring'' that "equity theory" is at work with Kavorka Man, compensating for his obvious deficiencies with intangible qualities due to women being more cerebral than they're given credit for.
