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.

** Kylo Ren, the main villain of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', sort of. Being a moody young EeriePaleskinnedBrunette with a gentle face played by Creator/AdamDriver helps. On the other hand, he's very tall and very ripped.

On the other hand, he's very tall and very ripped. Another villain, General Hux, also fits the bill, largely due to actor Domhnall Gleeson shaving his beard and being naturally pale and skinny.


Added DiffLines:

* [[TheFairFolk Jareth]], the main villain of ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'', is played by the thin and elegant Music/DavidBowie and decked out in downright ''fabulous'' makeup, hair, and clothes.

** Rhaegar Targaryen was a beautiful boy who--despite being a great warrior--was also a sensitive/emo man who liked to play the lyre. Interestingly enough, this has a habit of cropping up often enough with Targaryen princes for it to be [[MamasBabyPapasMaybe remarked upon]] in songs, histories and stories if they ''didn't'' fit the white-haired, violet-eyed dream-boat template (as in the case of Rhaenyra Targaryen's boys with Laenor Velaryon). At least, as young men. [[IWasQuiteALooker Staying attractive, however]]... is not always possible, as the young lads who became [[AndiposeRex Aegon]] [[LoveRuinsTheRealm "The Unworthy"]] and [[MadnessMakeOver Aerys "The Mad"]] so dramatically showed. And, as Rhaegar's brother, Visaerys, (never quite as pretty as his brother, but still not all that hard on the eyes) was beginning to prove in the main series.
** "Young Griff" is a beautiful young man who has long eye lashes and dyes his hair [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue]] [[spoiler: He's actually the son of the above-mentioned beautiful Rhaegar, or at least a convincing impostor.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Dune}}'': Because Paul Atreides is the Kwisatz Haderach and can access the genetic memories of his female and male ancestors, his androgynous looks reflect his unique skill.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/VictorFrankenstein'': Finnegan's dainty facial features are an extension of his vanity (he's always dressed to the nines and is impeccably groomed) and his privileged position in society (he likes to mock people who are poorer than him). Being born with a silver spoon in his mouth allows him the luxury to preen and to be puerile--you only have to glance at him to know that he's a SpoiledBrat.

** According to the TARDIS, Rory is "the pretty one", which is played as a joke, as he's generally thought of as [[UglyGuyHotWife significantly below Amy Pond in the looks department]]. Amy doesn't seem to think of this as a joke however.

** The third generation's resident JerkJock Nick Levan is a mixture of Pretty Boy and {{Hunk}}. He's one of the physically manliest characters in the series with his square jaw and muscular boy, but also has a pretty face, big eyes and cute smile, making him an example of this trope.

*** Quicksilver is affirmed to be Magneto's son, so Peter's softer features juxtapose his father's VillainousCheekbones. Quicksilver fights for the heroic team, and Magneto sides with the BigBad. Maximoff's puckish looks also mark him as a ManChild and a BasementDweller.

*** Quicksilver is affirmed to be Magneto's son, so Peter's softer softer, delicate features juxtapose his father's VillainousCheekbones. Quicksilver fights for the heroic team, and Magneto sides with the BigBad. Maximoff's puckish looks also mark him as a ManChild and a BasementDweller. During his confrontation with Apocalypse, Quicksilver moves gracefully as a FragileSpeedster, and once Apocalypse takes away his SuperSpeed advantage, Peter is wholly defenseless. Because Maximoff's face exudes an aura of innocence, it evokes the imagery of a "lamb to the slaughter" when [[spoiler:Apocalypse offers his bare neck to Psylocke for execution]].
