* It's possible that the now mostly-forgotten TropeMaker for the portrayal of Sweden (and by extension the rest of the Norselands) as "sexy" was the MondoMovie ''Sweden: Heaven And Hell''. Now much more infamous for being the original source of ''Series/TheMuppets''' "Mah Na Mah Na".

* ''Film/{{Beowulf}}''. More trolls, fewer Ikeas. The 2007 film even has Grendel speak Old English, and one or two references to "sea raiders".

* The ''Series/{{Backstrom}}'' novels about a useless and unappealing inept copper in Sweden, remade and recast in Portland for US television. The original novels are set largely in Stockholm and via the appallingly racist and cloddish Ewart Bäckström, shed light on Swedish prejudices about everybody else - including a cast of immigrants and other Scandinavians from neighbouring countries.

* Zig-zagged in ''VideoGame/CrusaderKings'' 2. Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Iceland all have the norse culture in the early start dates, but split up into swedish, norwegian and danish in their coresponding de jure kingdoms from 950 onward, subverting this trope. However, if you happen to unite all these kingdoms in a united scandinavian empire for ever, they will stay norse for ever, thus playing this trope straight.

* The EnsembleDarkHorse Nordics in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' are rather attractive, both purposely by the creator and in countless fanarts.
** Subverted with Sweden and Denmark. While both are handsome, tall and blond, Sweden is [[TheStoic reserved]] and [[FaceOfAThug sort of]] [[DeathGlare terrifying]], while Denmark is an alcoholic that may or may not be a [[AxCrazy crazy]] StepfordSmiler.

* In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', the fairy tale kingdom of Arendelle appears to be on a Norwegian fjord. We have character names like "Anna", "Elsa", "Sven", etc. Kristoff is conspicuously dressed in Sami-style clothing, and even has a reindeer as a best friend. Anna and Elsa also have a rather nordic ethnic look to them.
