* 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]].

* Dulcinea in ''Theatre/ManOfLaMancha'' is too perfect to be real (which is why it's not really a surprise when it turns out she isn't). She is Don Quixote's HerosMuse and a winsome twist of his HorribleJudgeOfCharacter ways -- the wretched Aldonza, hearing herself called Dulcinea, is eventually inspired to try to live up to it.

* In ''La Princesse Lointaine'' (written by Edmond Rostand prior to the more famous ''CyranoDeBergerac''), a knight falls in love with a princess solely from hearing a description of her beauty and virtues.

* In the ChivalricRomance ''The Earl of Toulos'', the earl falls in love with his enemy's wife and sneaks in his lands to catch a glimpse of her. Then he withdraws until she is [[MaliciousSlander accused of adultery]]. Whereupon he goes in disguise to act as her champion and clear her name. (Some variants have an ending tacked on where she is widowed and they marry.)

* ''Literature/TheKharkanasTrilogy'':
** 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.
** 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.
