** {{Trope namer|s}} is Kramer, where a Latvian Orthodox priest calls his power over women "kavorka" (meaning "the lure of the animal"). Over the course of the show, he's seduced UmaThurman, a nun, and a lesbian, offering no explanation other than, "I'm Kramer." This was actually PlayedForDrama on the episode that named it, since he couldn't control the effect and almost destroyed a nun's life against his own will.

* Mark E Smith of Music/TheFall looks like the dwarf from TwinPeaks, only worn by decades of alcohol and meth, and has an infamously foul temper to boot. How did he manage to get married not one, not two, but three times (and having various other girlfriends) is still a mystery. Hell, have a look at his third (and current) wife, [[https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5067/5788672234_7b30ecff92_b.jpg Elena Poulou]].

* The WalkyVerse's Joe Rosenthal is a split between TheCasanova and a Kavorka Man: he's got looks, brains and superhuman strength, but he took an approach that was so direct that it should have earned him a lot of slaps in the face. It never did. This may actually be one of his superpowers, though.

** Dorothy's ex-husband Stan is not much for looks or charm, but never has a shortage of beautiful women ready to butter his buns. Being an UnclePennybags helps.

** He claims to have been married at least ten times previously in Deadpool #27 The Wedding of Deadpool, although not all of these stories may be accurate since he is an UnreliableNarrator. The past wives listed include Ms. Marvel [[spoiler: turned out she was being controlled by an alien at the time]], a sock puppet of Copycat he hallucinated was really her after he thought she died [[spoiler: destroyed, although the real Copycat was still alive]], a stripper calling herself Genosha [[spoiler: killed during the wedding as a consequence of Deadpool messing with continuity]], a woman whose name he forgot that he assassinated by pretending to be her groom [[spoiler: she actually hired him to make her suicide look like a murder]], a woman named Penny [[spoiler: she didn't exist, she was part of a trap set by a villain]], a woman named Anna [[spoiler: he had actually killed the real Anna and married Copycat pretending to be her and it turned out the people who married them were replaced with actors so it didn't count]], a DumbBlonde named Lurleen [[spoiler: divorced when it turned out she was actually Mystique]], Outlaw [[spoiler: her super strength made sex extremely painful, so probably divorced]], Domino [[spoiler: only pretending to be a couple for a mission but deadpool took it like it was real, and she "divorced" him by shooting through him to get the bad guy]], AIM assassin Betty Swanson [[spoiler: didn't count, she was unconscious and the guy doing the wedding was a savage land native shaman that he coerced]], and a large alien woman named Orksa [[spoiler: although it didn't show it in this comic, he later divorced her so she could be with somebody who loved her more than he did]], and of course, the main story of the issue is him getting married to Shiklah the Succubus [[spoiler: and for now it seems to be going well.]] There are also all the women he had sex with but didn't marry, [[spoiler: one of which had his daughter.]]

** However, may be deconstructed, since Deaddpool sometimes never seems to remove his mask when he with some of his ladies. When having sex with Carmelita, he keeps his suit on. He has to leave to fight, and Carmelita wishes him luck, and kisses him in case something bad happens to her. She even goes to the fight scene, wondering if Deadpool is ok. However, she'd never seen his face, and when she does, she chokes back bile and runs away in disgust.

* In ''Film/TheBadLieutenantPortOfCallNewOrleans'', NicolasCage plays Terrence [=McDonagh=] as a cross between UsefulNotes/RichardNixon and Creator/LaurenceOlivier's version of Theatre/RichardIII, but he still has Creator/EvaMendes for a girlfriend and Creator/FairuzaBalk practically dragging him into bed.

* "Ravishing" Wrestling/RickRude may have been the [=WWF=]'s biggest [[TheFightingNarcissist primadonna]] of the 1980s, complete with a big ol' {{Pornstache}} and a smug look on his face with every appearance he made. And yet, the cameras caught women drooling over him (and his obnoxiously ripped abs) every time he came out.
* ''Wrestling/RicFlair.'' In his prime, he became infamous for being a [[ManOfWealthAndTaste wealthy]], pompous prick who bragged up his riches and fame (''"These shoes cost more than your house!"'') whenever he wasn't talking about how great he was in the ring. Sure enough, he often had women hanging off of him on his way to the ring for big matches.
* More so than the above (except Steiner perhaps) is Greg Excellent. A heavy hairy flabby man who is a proud slob. Yet women, even those filled with murderous intent for him, just can't help but lose themselves and kissing him. On the other hand, excellent can't help it either, it just happens.

* Los Fabulosos. Silver King and El Dandy were both paunchy, not particularly good looking luchadors. Their manager was the absolutely smoking Stacy Keibler.

* One sidequest in ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'' is testing potential beaus for Nurse Nina, whose {{Animesque}}, [[Franchise/StarWars Leia-resembling]] vending machine portrait turns out to be...somewhat misleading when you meet her in person. Despite this, three men seem interested, with two of them only breaking off their pursuit when they discover that the "testing" involves a Vault Hunter trying to kill them.
