The LatinLover was originally from Spain or Italy, but has expanded to include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Brazil, and other Central and South American countries. Mexicans are usually not considered exotic enough for Americans, but they can also fall under the trope if handsome and smooth-talking enough.

* ''{{Irritability}}'' had one show up for a one-shot gag, touted by the narrator as "the latin lover". It turned out to be a nerdy guy who really loved the latin ''language''.
* In ''AnsemRetort'', Zexion sold New Mexico to Spain in exchange for sexy Latin names (ex: Guillermo del Zexiero lo Marquis) to try to invoke this trope. [[spoiler: He succeeds with Belle, and later with Namine.]]

In Hollywood, people have more sex appeal if, in their native language, the word for love is 'amor' or 'amore'. We don't call them "Romance languages" for nothing.[[note]] though the reason is more that they're derived primarily from Latin, the language of the Romans, than that they are inherently romantic. ''But that explanation isn't very romantic!''[[/note]] Latin men are hotter than jalapeños and usually TallDarkAndHandsome, and [[SpicyLatina Latin women]] melt butter at a five kilometer radius with their FemmeFatale aura. Plus there's dancing. There's always dancing.

* Played for Laughs in a British advert. A women is in desperate need of help. In comes a '''very''' Spanish guy, complete with [[JustAStupidAccent bad accent]], who helps her...Clear a stain off the table. It turns out its an advert for Plenty Paper Towels. Their selling point is that they're so absorbent you only need one... so the Spanish guy is [[IncrediblyLamePun Juan Sheet]].

* Spain from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' is certainly attractive; it's a [[MemeticMutation meme]] within the fandom that any discussion about him will invariably turn to "dat ass". But he subverts this by being [[TheDitz extremely oblivious and ditzy]]. The Italy brothers are also a subversion: they both flirt incessantly, but Northern Italy apparently isn't very successful (in his very first appearance he mentions being a virgin) and is too much a {{Keet}} to really fit the type, while Southern Italy's a strongly Type-A {{Tsundere}} who turns on the charm when flirting and is moody and abrasive otherwise.

** He later has a relationship with [[spoiler: Namine Gomez]], [[SpicyLatina who might fit a related trope]] though we don't see it outside her (rarely-used) surname.

* Another subversion is found in ''{{Sixteen}}'' where one of the characters fall for someone who she thinks only speaks Spanish, although [[DramaticIrony the viewer can see]] it was his unattractive friend talking in Spanish. Consequently, she attempts to learn Spanish herself. He doesn't actually speak Spanish, though, and he tries to learn Spanish himself to communicate with her. If I recall correctly, the phrase "Latin Lover" was even thrown around in the episode. Jonesy is one of these
* Alejandro from ''TotalDrama World Tour''
