* Flavor Flav of the hiphop group PublicEnemy, who starred in the Creator/VH1 reality show ''Series/FlavorOfLove'', where each season, twenty skanks (most of whom are almost half his age) fought over the affections of what must be the most unattractive man on the planet.

* Recurring character Lady Constance deCoverlet in ''ImSorryIllReadThatAgain''. Described as utterly hideous and with a screeching voice partway between Lady Bracknell and a sexually compromised duck, she still manages to get her man, if only by sheer persistence. Voiced by [[Series/TheGoodies Tim Brooke-Taylor]], she was a firm audience favourite.

* CrusaderKings can have generations of these. Your ruler can have traits that make them an ugly, hideously scarred and/or misshapen with a personality that would make Ivan the Terrible look like someone's favourite uncle, and they can still sire armies of children by multiple wives and lovers.

* Cal from the series ''{{Undergrads}}'' was made of this trope. Cal was able to effortlessly attract hordes of attractive college girls. Granted, Cal was somewhat handsome and good-natured -- in sharp contrast to his rival Rocko, who couldn't get a date to save his life -- but he [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undergrads#Main_characters frequently makes a slurping noise while talking or drools and often ends his sentences with the word "guy".]] Among other bad habits.

Possibly owing to MostWritersAreMale, Kavorka Woman is extremely rare. The closest common example is a BigBeautifulWoman who often has numerous conventionally-attractive men vying for her attention. Generally speaking, though, it's considered far more cruel to call a woman unattractive than it is to say the same of a man, so most writers will take another route in making a female character comedically undesirable.

Generally attention (an archetype with historical precedent in UsefulNotes/CatherineTheGreat). But generally speaking, though, since society values women for their beauty more than men, it's considered far more cruel crueler to call a woman unattractive than it is to say the same of a man, so most writers will take another route in making a female character comedically undesirable.

* In ''Film/TheLuzhinDefence'', Sascha Luzhin (JohnTurturro) is ugly, socially inept and depressive but attractive socialite Natalia Katkov (EmilyWatson) falls for him and marries him despite the hostility of her parents to the match. OK, he is a world-class chess player, but she is not particularly interested in chess and urges him to give it up.[[/folder]]

* ''Radio/TheBurkissWay'' had its male equivalent in the appalling Eric Pode Of Croydon. Despite his grimy malformed ugliness and a voice suggesting several contagious respiratory diseases had decided on a party in his lungs, he still got girlfriends. In one memorable episode he even morphed into Lady Constance from ISIRTA (see above), indicating that the writers had recognised they were two halves of a split soul.

** Fairly common in dancehall in general. Vybz Kartel is another example of someone who objectively isn't that attractive but seems to have no trouble with women.

The polar opposite of the CasanovaWannabe, 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.

* Elle King at least in the song "Ex's and Oh's". As the music video shows, she is fat, though not really ugly, but has no problem getting several different dudes.
