* In ''Film/SoIMarriedAnAxeMurderer'', this is something of a recurring gag for the main character, and it even foreshadows things that are to come later in the movie.

* In ''Film/SoIMarriedAnAxeMurderer'', this is something of a recurring gag for the main character, character Charlie has a bad history of breaking up with his girlfriends for petty and it even foreshadows things that are to come later probably made up reasons (she's a klepto, she's in the movie.Cosa Nostra, she smells like beef soup) because he has commitment issues. This makes it hard to convince his cop friend [[CryingWolf when Charlie starts to suspect his current girlfriend might be an axe murderer]].

A Guy or GirlOfTheWeek that is otherwise perfect in every way, but has one glaring flaw that any normal person would probably be able to live with, but the protagonist feels is too much for him or her to handle. The 'glaring' flaw is often something incredibly minor, and may be used to show that the protagonist is a pretty shallow, self-absorbed and petty character. Other times, the writers just wanted to hit the ResetButton.

* One episode of ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' had a similar scenario to the ''Series/FullHouse'' example above- Will convinces Hillary to date his professor as part of a plan to keep him from flunking the class, but she decides to break up with him due to the size of his Adam's Apple. Will confronted her on this, pointing out that she was still recovering from Trevor's death and just looking for excuses to not date. She got over that, but then started fixating on his mole (or perhaps the mole was first), leading to a great [[IncrediblyLamePun line]]:
-->'''Will:''' You're making a mountain out of a mole, Hill!

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Belle}}'' had it to where the main character was dating a nice guy who was wealthy and successful but then found out he was an Atheist (without showing the usual HollywoodAtheist quirks and even enjoyed going to Church with her as he enjoyed the music) and dumped him. However the episode even acts as if this was a big deal, even flat out stating he is worse than a killer and a drug dealer because "they can be saved and he can't" and that dumping him was the right decision. The episode summary even referred to this as a flaw. As you can guess [[http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2013/02/25/on-black-sitcom-atheist-character-is-undateable/ Atheists were not amused]].

* In the fifth ''Literature/CaptainUnderpants'' book, Ms. Ribble is briefly engaged to Mr. Krupp, but calls it off. This is not because [[UnequalPairing he's her boss]], or the fact that he's a sadistic ChildHater, but because he has a [[GagNose stupid-looking nose]].
** Which, as accentuated via close-up, [[HypocriticalHumor is identical to her own.]]
** Also worth noting that she ''respects'' the fact that he's a complete ChildHater. It's all just the nose.

'''Dr. Leo Marvin:''' I see. So, what you're saying is that even though you are an almost-paralyzed, multiphobic personality who is in a constant state of panic, your wife did not leave you, you left her because she... liked Neil Diamond?
