* Even pushing 60, Kathleen Turner is gorgeous. However, in Season Three of ''Series/{{Californication}}'', her performance as Sue Collini is deliberately off-putting, at times evoking [[{{Cheers}} Nick Tortelli]] in a skirt. This turns her extended cameo into a triumphantly flaming ball of distaff Kavorka.

* Nick Tortelli from ''{{Cheers}}'' is probably the ur-example - causes Diane to swoon just by standing near her when she doubts his abilities. His ex-wife Carla has a similar power over men in spite of her [[{{Jerkass}} personality]]. Though the women Nick seduces are considerably more attractive than the men Carla seduces. * Patrick from ''{{Coupling}}'', being charming, handsome and notoriously well-endowed, is mostly regarded as a straight TheCasanova, but at other times, when we're reminded that he's a chauvinistic ass with the mental power of a sack of potatoes, his prowess with women seems more like the Kavorka Man. * Tyrion Lannister from ''GameOfThrones'' could be considered this, being a dwarf -- something even more discriminated against in Westeros than real life -- however, this is offset by his wealth, family prestige, and most importantly, his wit and intellect.

** [[SitcomArchNemesis Newman]] has also been out with some very attractive women. Jerry learns this the hard way when he realizes he is dating one of Newman's exes. That didn't seem to bother him as much as learning that ''he'' broke up with ''her'' for not being attractive enough. The idea that this woman -- or ''any'' woman, for that matter -- is somehow not pretty enough for who he considers the most repulsive man on the face of the earth is too much for Jerry, and he can no longer bring himself to kiss her. --->'''Jerry:''' All I could think of when I was looking at her face... was that '''''Newman''''' found this '''''unacceptable!'''''

** George also qualifies and has also been lampshaded. When George can't have sex with his girlfriend, he gets smarter. Jerry theorizes that George has been devoting most of his brainpower to getting laid, and with that out of the way, he starts doing things like using his knowledge of physiscs to effortlessly hit home runs in baseball and solving a Rubik's Cube while figuring out Jeopardy answers. Which indicates that he puts a lot of effort into sex. Then again, the same episode shows that [[AllMenArePerverts this is true for all men]], not just George.

** George also qualifies and has also been lampshaded. When George can't have sex with his girlfriend, he gets smarter. Jerry theorizes that George has been devoting most of his brainpower to getting laid, and with that out of the way, he gains a new thirst for knowledge and starts doing studying textbooks constantly. Eventually he is able to do things like show up the Yankees by using his knowledge of physiscs physics to effortlessly hit multiple consecutive home runs in baseball and solving runs, solve a Rubik's Cube while figuring out Jeopardy answers.watching ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' and getting all the answers correct, and become fluent in Portuguese ''accidentally'' just from hearing the cleaning woman at his job speak it. Which indicates that he puts a lot of effort into sex. Then again, the same The episode shows that [[AllMenArePerverts this is true for all men]], not just George.George, but it's probably safe to say he needs to put more brainpower towards sex than the average man.

* 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 losing themselves and kissing him. On the other hand, excellent can't help it either, it just happens.

* Eremis in ''Literature/MordantsNeed'' is described as being balding and not at all conventionally handsome, but he's got enough presence and charisma to make that irrelevant. He doesn't even seem to need a [[PowerIsSexy strong social position]] to make it work - even when he's imprisoned and disgraced, it's mentioned that there's no end to how many gorgeous women turn up to visit him in his cell.

** Despite being financially well off and a brilliant lawyer, Donnie is short, chubby, and not particularly attractive. During the course of the show, he dates Roz, nearly marries Daphne, and ends up with another very good-looking woman.

** Despite being financially well off and a brilliant lawyer, Donnie is short, chubby, and not particularly attractive. During the course of the show, he dates Roz, nearly marries Daphne, and ends up with another very good-looking woman. It probably helps that he's ruthlessly good at his job and a genuine sweetheart to the women in his life (even his secretary).

[[folder:Advertising]] * The [[MemeticMutation memetically-popular]] web ad claiming that "this ugly son of a bitch is fucking super hot chicks and basically, [[TakeThatAudience you are fucking stupid]]", relies on this trope, exhorting the audience to watch a free video to find out the Kavorka Man's secret.

** Frasier Crane is sort-of good looking, in an offbeat way, and yes, he's very cultured. But ''come on'': Tea Leoni, Sela Ward, Amy Brenneman, Virginia Madsen, Terri Hatcher, Jean Smart, Creator/PatriciaClarkson, Creator/JenniferTilly, Lisa Edelstein, and Laura Linney just to name the memorable ones? *** Not just cultured, but brilliant, rich, and well connected with the toast of Seattle's glitterati. He also strikes out more than he succeeds. A better example from the show might be Bulldog, who is short, bald, loud, sexist, racist, and highly obnoxious, yet still manages to score plenty.

* ComicBook/{{Batman}}'s enemy the Penguin has been known to date some supermodel-quality women, despite being short, fat, and ugly; a lot of that has to do with him being rich and influential, however.
