* Dianne Court from ''Film/SayAnything''. Since she's beautiful and the valedictorian, everyone assumes that she's completely unapproachable. When [[Creator/JohnCusack Lloyd Dobler]] asks her out and she accepts everyone is astonished, especially Lloyd himself.
* Played with and/or deconstructed over the course of the original ''Film/StarWars'' trilogy, vis a vis Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa. In the very first film (Episode IV: A New Hope), the pirate mercenary Han, after a heated argument with the recently rescued princess/senator/revolutionary, nevertheless admits feelings for her, and begins to ask farm boy main protagonist Luke Skywalker (who also has romantic designs on her) "You think a princess and a guy like me..." only to be cut off with a very curt and blunt "no". Han and Leia of course later on become romantically entangled over the course of later movies, and eventually marry.

** Invoked with Lady Hish Tulla, who is one for both Anomander Rake and Silchas Ruin, who consider her the WorldsMostBeautifulWoman and thus, even though both have scored first base before, they still see her as unreachable and virtuous and only to be worshipped from afar.

* Kotonoha Katsura from ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'' starts as this. The guys at her school either look at her from afar or ogle her GagBoobs without actually asking her for a date, since not only she's considered to be [[CuteBookworm beautiful and smart]] but also comes [[TheOjou from a millionaire family]]. (In the meantime, almost all the girls either ignore or bully her [[AttractivenessIsolation out of jealousy and envy]].) Makoto Itou is the first guy who ''ever'' asks her out, and ''he'' himself had also been also liking her from afar at first...

* ''Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks'': As far as [[StraightGay Lavali's]] concerned, she has no hope of ever being [[EvilIsSexy with Eva]], even though she hit on Lavali and [[http://www.sandraontherocks.com/strips-sotr/scribbling_on_my_hand gave her her phone number.]] Which is the reason she said she couldn't muster the nerve to call her:

** Dragged through the mud and deconstructed with Enesdia. Her betrothed Andarist has delusions about her IncorruptiblePurePureness. Her brother Kadaspala has an unhealthy obsession -- though not of a romantic nature -- with how pure and virtuous she is and considers her impending marriage to be detrimental to those qualities. Others consider her vain and spoiled. She is none of these extremes, and the only one who sees that, Cryl Durav, thinks she only considers him her adopted brother and is unreacheable for him for other reasons.

* ''Manga/MakenKi'': Usui falls for [[{{pettanko}} Himegami]], who's considered to be [[HelloNurse one of the hottest girls]] at Tenbi Academy. Which made his chances of hooking up with her seem unlikely to begin with; becoming much less likely once he and the others learn she's [[spoiler: the daughter of Yamato no Orochi]]. Meaning, she's both [[BlueBlood royalty]] ''and'' [[spoiler: a demi-goddess]]! But she [[{{Subverted}} subverts it]] near the end of chapter 65, when she tells him [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c065/21.html she's not above him]] and finally provides him with [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c065/22.html a faint glimmer]] [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c065/23.html of hope.]]

* Most ''VideoGame/TokimekiMemorial'' games, including the [[DistaffCounterpart Girls' Side series]], have as the main love interest a seemingly perfect character who is beautiful, athletic, intelligent, beloved by the school populace, and easily the most difficult character to win over.

* Griffith from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' has shades of this, being not only a FatherToHisMen but an [[LongHairedPrettyBoy incredibly beautiful man]] in an otherwise gritty setting. His lieutenants [[TheProtagonist Guts]] and [[TheSquadette Casca]] are both implied to have feelings for him but see him as too perfect to approach, and end up settling for each other instead. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of [[TheSociopath Griffith]]'s feelings [[{{Yandere}} for his lieutenants]]. When Guts overhears Griffith claim that his only friends are those he sees as equals, he temporarily quits Griffith's service and leaves on a journey to find himself; to say Griffith takes this poorly would be a [[MoralEventHorizon massive understatement]].
