* ''SaintSeiya'': Despite all the Amazons being beautiful, none of them ever hook up with any of the guys. Instead, Ikki, Shiryu and Hyoga fell or have ShipTease with YamatoNadeshiko type of women. * ''SorcererHunters''. Carrot Glace is a bit of an idiot, a womanizer, and his only useful skill in fighting sorcerers is totally out of his control -- he turns into a horrible, deadly monster when struck by magic. Despite all that, he has two loyal, beautiful women, who've known him forever, pursuing him -- the sisters Chocolate and Tira Misu. They are also, however, dominatrix-queens whose real job in the team is to beat the bejeesus out of Carrot after he's transformed, to turn him back into a human. He is, by his own admission, too afraid of them to think of them romantically.

* Milo Manara's ComicBook/XMen features a plane-worshiping leader (don't ask) courting {{Storm}}, to the chagrin of the man's wife. Once he discovers that Storm has powers, he loses all interest: His wife has powers too, and he was looking for a ''Human'' woman so that he could have the upper hand for once.

* ''MidoriDays'': The local otaku asks for Seiji's help to impress a girl by pretending to bully her so he can intervene and chase him off. When she kicks Seiji's ass, he loses interest, as he's one of those {{Moe}}-obsessed types.

* ''[[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fate/Stay Night]]'': While Shirou wants Saber, he is initially overly protective of her and [[StayInTheKitchen does not want her to get hurt]] -- which is quite dumb, since she clearly is orders of magnitude more powerful than him. In addition her life is tied to his, so getting himself killed to save her would not, in fact, save her for more than a few hours. His coming to terms with these facts drives the story in the first half. Saber herself starts to get self-conscious over her nature as a warrior woman around the time Shirou stops treating her in that way. He's better about it in the other routes, as it is only in the ''Fate'' route where she is his primary love interest that he displays this behavior.

* This often happens in the WWE developmental territories. An athletic woman gets noticed and is ordered to lose her muscle tone to suit the traditional Diva mold. This happened to Angel Williams (Wrestling/{{TNA}}'s Wrestling/AngelinaLove) and Jennifer Thomas (who left pro wrestling after being released) in the mid-2000s. More recently they hired female armwrestler Sara Backmann and then forced her to lose the muscles that got her noticed in the first place.

The biceps have disappeared, although clips of her flexing (when she still had them) are still plentiful in NXT promotional footage.

Added DiffLines:
* This part of the reason [[GoldDigger Charlotte]] of ''VideoGames/FireEmblemFates'' is TheFakeCutie. She ''does'' have feminine interests, but she is a BloodKnight at heart, and whenever she tried to be herself, she scared men away. Quite a few of her supports have her potential love interests (notably [[TheLeader Xander]], who is unimpressed with her seduction tactics, but [[AmazonChaser changes his tune completely]] after she saves him by killing a Faceless with her bare hands) tell her they like her [[JustTheWayYouAre the way she is]].

* SamuraiWarriors 3 - In Kai's story path, she gets ragged on by Kunoichi for being manlier than most of the guys in the Hojo clan (though the way she says it, she's also insulting the Hojos for being weak).

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': When Azula tries flirting with a guy at a party, they hit it off until she breaks out the flaming hands and "WeCanRuleTogether" speech, at which point he quickly excuses himself. Granted this is probably due to Azula's [[AxCrazy insanity]], not her strength.]]

It's not easy for women and girls on TV today to be both beautiful and strong, like the Amazons of Greek mythology. Why? Because AllGuysWantCheerleaders, but no guy wants a girl who can beat him up. If you must be a MagicalGirlfriend, he would prefer the domestic type. A HugeSchoolgirl or CuteBruiser all grown up is a threat to his tough, masculine image. [[OppositesAttract Often he also simply is not attracted to this kind of women]].

[[OppositesAttract Often he also simply is not attracted to this kind of women]]. \n In lay terms, he's not an UnderstandingBoyfriend (yet).

So you frequently find a [[TheProtagonist protagonist]] who is instantly attracted to a hot girl only to discover too late that she's a black-belt, a professional athlete, or a superhero, and he suddenly needs to find a way to prove he's tougher and stronger than her.
