** In ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', at least two members of the LA brood are (or were) Cleopatras: A supermodel named Imalia (who hasn't gotten over it), and a former silent movie star and their current primogen "Gorgeous" Gary Golden (who has gotten over it, considering he is Imalia's Sire).

* Part of the ''{{Dragonlance}}'' backstory has the Irda, a beautiful, powerful race of blue-skinned humanoids who were the first sentients created on Krynn who enslaved first the elves, than men when they proved more useful as laborers. After growing too arrogant, all but one clan (who were friendly to humans) were cursed by the gods and become the hideous green-skinned monsters known as Ogres.

to:

\n* One very harsh example in ''TabletopGame/RocketAge''. Although this might have been a side effect of the viral and nuclear bombardment of Io by the Europans, the Iotes went from being described as the most beautiful species in the solar system to looking like disease ridden, mutated dog men. Knowing the Europan's [[DisproportionateRetribution track record]], they probably didn't even do anything to deserve it.

Otherwise played exactly straight, as it was an effective punishment[[note]] He explains that he has no problem with looking ''pretty'', and he even ''wants'' to look pretty, but he wants to look pretty ''himself''. He doesn't want someone else's face.[[/note]].

* In "The Masks", a fifth-season episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'', a wealthy dying man summons his family to his New Orleans home for Mardi Gras. Since they're all grasping creeps waiting for him to die so that they'll inherit, he makes it a condition of his will that they wear grotesque masks matching their personalities until midnight. He dies at midnight and they take off their masks to find that their faces have been permanently molded into those shapes.

* The [[GreekMythology Greek mythical]] monster Medusa, who was so ugly that anyone who beheld her face was [[TakenForGranite turned to stone]], was supposedly afflicted with this. In many versions of the myth, she was originally a beautiful girl, but [[DoubleStandardRapeDivineOnMortal made the mistake of being raped by Poseidon]] in Athena's temple. Athena really didn't take it too well.
