* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Korra plays this role to Mako in the first two seasons but it soon becomes apparent that they're far from perfect for each other and they eventually break up. Played straighter in the finale where she gets together with [[spoiler: Asami]], who's a non-bender.



** Steven, in turn, shows signs of being a magical boyfriend to Connie, although it isn't quite clear given that [[PuppyLove still pretty young]].

* The whole concept of ''ComicBook/MyBoyfriendIsAMonster'' - each story revolves around the heroine falling in love with an otherworldly being (vampire, guardian angel, mummy, etc).

* ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'' mixes this with a hefty dose of the ActionGirlfriend, focusing on a battle royale between super-powered {{Human Alien|s}} beauties and their PunyEarthling boyfriends. A handful of Magical Boyfriends also exist in the story, and most of the prominent Ashikabi bond with multiple Sekirei and establish {{Battle Harem}}s. Almost all Ashikabi were either losers or living empty lives until they met their Sekirei, and later chapters establish how ThePowerOfLove not only makes the Sekirei stronger but causes positive changes in the Ashikabi over time.

* Tenchi from ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' definitely fits the whole UnluckyEverydude trope. The main differences are (a) He gets [[UnwantedHarem A Whole Bunch Of Magical Girlfriends]], (b) He's too much of a NiceGuy to head to [[MarryThemAll marrying all of them]] with any kind of speed, and (c) the girlfriends are actual ''people'' with all the complications thereof. The ManicPixieDreamGirl? A {{Space Pirate|s}} with a price on her head several dozen orders of magnitude greater than Earth's combined GNP. The [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Princesses]]? One's a bossy, prudishly-repressed proto-dominatrix; the other's a little girl who happens to be [[spoiler:the avatar of one of the three [[GodWasMyCopilot goddesses who created the universe]],]] and they're both [[IncestIsRelative half-sisters of his grandfather]]. The cute lil' MadScientist? She's [[Really700YearsOld really 20,000 years old]], is the mother of the Space Pirate, she [[MrsRobinson wants him anyway]], and she's [[spoiler:''another'' of the three goddesses who created the universe.]] Oh, and WordOfGod says that the [[spoiler:third goddess wants in as well]]. Then there's the two [[SpacePolice Galaxy Police Detectives]]....

** ''Anime/WaitingInTheSummer'', a later instalment in the franchise, has Ichika, another alien who's better matched age-wise with high-school student Kaito.

* There is a similar Irish tale about a man who married a mermaid. He stole the red cap she needed to swim back home. After having many children with him, she [[spoiler:finds the cap and leaves him, never to return]].
** Another version has the girl being a selkie, and the man who finds her steals her seal skin when she takes it off.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'', where the inhuman, beautiful girlfriend is also an emotionless and brutal killing machine that not only goes to rather shocking lengths to protect John Connor, but is perfectly willing to use John's reactions and emotions toward her to manipulate him.

* Anera, an Aasimar cleric in the ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' community-created Shadowlords/Dreamcatcher/Demon module arc, might qualify. She takes a bit more effort than most Magical Girlfriends, but she is supernatural and will only hook up with a good-hearted character, and her half-celestial cousin pops up to kill her and you for disturbing the balance of the universe in the last Shadowlords module (giving you the opportunity to complete Anera's romance sidequest by [[TakingTheBullet taking a death effect for her]], though the PowerOfLove keeps you alive at 1hp).

* Sort of sadly subverted in ''Literature/TalesOfMU'' with the bonus story "[[http://www.talesofmu.com/story/other/a-boys-prayer A Boy's Prayer]]": the story implies that Amaranth the cereal nymph manifested the way she is as (a buxom, [[NerdsAreSexy nerdy]], [[GlassesGirl glasses-wearing]] LoveFreak) because one lonely, geeky twelve-year-old boy, uh, fertilized her field with fantasies and desires of such a woman. The subversion (and sadness) is that after she manifested exactly according to his desires, he never even got to meet her.

* Jenny shows up to rescue Sheldon from bullies in ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot''. She has most of the traits; to the point where, when Jenny is tired of dating egotistical boys, and complains she needs someone sweet, Sheldon walks past and she barely notices him beyond a perfunctory hello.
** WordOfGod says that if the show had continued, Jenny would have indeed become Sheldon's girlfriend.
* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheAlienInvaders''. The normally carefree Shaggy and Scooby fall for a hippie nature photographer named Crystal and her Golden Retriever Amber. Even a whole music video in the movie is Shaggy fantasizing about their future relationship. As it turns out, [[spoiler:Crystal and her dog are alien agents sent to investigate the S.A.L.F dishes. Their idea of an Earth appearance came from TV signals picked up from an experiment in the 70's.]]

* Subverted and deconstructed in the [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Thor]] comics with [[StarCrossedLovers Ice Goddess Kelda and short-order cook Bill]]. [[SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom Dr. Doom]] even taunted the bereft Kelda that [[MayflyDecemberRomance she and Bill were never meant to be]].

* Inverted in ''[[Manga/MidoriNoHibi Midori Days]]'': the guy is a tough fighter-type whose reputation frightens away girls, and the girlfriend is an ordinary girl who's always wanted him. She's a normal girl who got her wish granted through "magical" means. The wish-fulfillment is still there.

* The ''TypeMoon'' universe arguably has some elements of this, though it is famous for more than just that. The main heroine of every story by [=TypeMoon=] are one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful, being in that particular story ([[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} Arcueid]], [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Saber]], [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Ryougi Shiki]], [[Literature/AngelNotes The Angel (Type-Venus)]]). However, the heroes are freaking {{Badass}} themselves (even [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Mikiya]], kinda), they just have the limitation of being "a mere human."

* ''VisualNovel/SayaNoUta'' is a horrible variation of this trope, as the girl you think she is is not really a human girl - she is an EldritchAbomination trying to destroy the Earth!! That being said, the "girlfriend" part play straight as her love to main character seem to be genuine.
