* Of course as always DependingOnTheArtist, but teenage {{SelfDemonstrating/Loki}} in their masculine form. The first reaction to their looks by a [[Comicbook/YoungAvengers teammate]] was "OK. '''Now''' he looks like trouble.", in a [[Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard later series]] this also earned them a RunningGag about looking "Music/OneDirection-y". During the AXIS arc even their callsign is 'Pretty Boy' and it's stuck beyond that arc. Even old Loki calls them that.

Added DiffLines:
* Subverted in ''VideoGame/RideToHellRetribution''. One of the bosses is nicknamed Pretty Boy, but when you finally meet him, it proves to be an IronicNickname: he's bald, noticeably muscular, and has horrible burn scars over half of his body.

deleting misuse — don't add real people, examples in music should be about these characters in the song, not musicians themselves + ZCE + Word Cruft
* Matty from ''{{The 1975}}'' is definitely this, especially once you look at his hair.

%% * Music/{{Gorillaz}}'s 2D has elements of Pretty Boy, except with a distinct UncannyValley flavour.

* Pietro "ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}" Maximoff from ComicBook/XMen certainly counts as Pretty Boy.. [[DependingOnTheArtist It depends on the artist, however]]. For example, in WesternAnimation/{{Wolverine And The X-Men}}, he looks even older than his father.

Expanded the entry to include multiple Romeos and some analysis.
* Leonard Whiting from Franco Zeffirelli's film adaptation of ''RomeoAndJuliet''. Most of the comments of this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtJJ0Ex5wk8&feature=related old interview]] of him and co-star Olivia Hussey on Website/YouTube are about how he looks like Creator/ZacEfron.

* In film adaptations of ''RomeoAndJuliet'', Romeo is often played by one, probably to help justify why young Juliet [[LoveAtFirstSight would fall so madly in love with him so quickly]]. Examples include Leonard Whiting from in Franco Zeffirelli's film adaptation of ''RomeoAndJuliet''. Most version,[[note]]Most of the comments of this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtJJ0Ex5wk8&feature=related old interview]] of him and co-star Olivia Hussey on Website/YouTube are about how he looks like Creator/ZacEfron.[[/note]] Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio in ''Film/WilliamShakespearesRomeoAndJuliet'', and Douglas Booth in [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1645131/?ref_=ttmd_md_nm the 2013 film version]].

* Fenris from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', an elf with white hair and body tattoos made out of lyrium, and also happens to wear skin tight clothing. You can, of course, compliment his looks when flirting with him, some of them result with him giggling.

However, in the seventh game ''Ballad of Rapunzel'', two young men are encountered in the bonus chapter who are ''very'' Pretty Boys. Kai and Gwyn were previously encountered in an earlier installment as young boys; ten years have passed and they are [[SheIsAllGrownUp all grown up]].

** We have Cedric Diggory AKA "Pretty Boy Diggory". The first things we learn about him are that he's a good flier and just mentioning him can [[ChickMagnet make the girls on the Gryffindor team break into giggles.]] RobertPattinson is one of the few Potter actors who ''isn't'' an example of AdaptationalAttractiveness.

** Matty, [[spoiler:Nick]]'s LittleBigBrother, is just as pretty as his sibling, but significantly more visibly fragile. Also two of the heroines fall for him almost instantly after seeing him for their respective first times. Actually ''every'' teenage male character of the third generation (besides [[{{Adorkable}} Alo]]) can be considered a Pretty Boy to varying degrees.

You know that [[{{Hunk}} ruggedly handsome manly man]] the ladies all sigh for? This isn't that guy. Oh, he still gets the sighs, but it's because he is so dang ''pretty''. These guys are often slender or slight, with fine facial features. Height is variable: if his prettiness comes from his youthfulness, then he's probably shorter; if it comes from his status as MrFanservice, then he's going to be taller.
