** Pick any ''Tenchi'' series, and there are probably characters who use this at some point. An egregious example includes the part in ''Tenchi GXP'' where four young women get away with [[spoiler:[[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale raping a 15-year old boy]]]] because they're beautiful and female (and because [[spoiler:they're [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections foreign emissaries.]]]])
** Averted in ''Tenchi in Tokyo'', where Ayeka, despite having this trope and ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney and ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers and ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections on her side, has to pay a traffic ticket. (Of course, there's a lesser ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney in it if she used an infinitesimal portion of her father's money to pay for it.)

* In ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', Gaston believes that he's the most handsome man in the entire village. One of the reasons he gives for stalking Belle and eventually trying to force her into marrying him is because she's the only one "who's as beautiful as me!" and he deserves the best in ''everything'', wives included.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has this happen from time to time, particularly in the backstory. The main character extolling it we get to see in all her egocentric glory, however, is Cersei Lannister. And, as she quickly finds out, beauty is only ''one'' of the tools in the Game. [[DeconstructedTrope And, it's no rule-breaker on its own]], however much she gives it pride of position and believes in the edge it can give her. It's even becomes a DiscussedTrope, by Littlefinger, who points out that it's the only one of the sources of Cersei's power to be ''truly'' her own and it won't last forever, so there is no way for it to carry her out much longer. And by the time [[spoiler:Cersei is punished by being forced to walk naked through the capital]] it's quite obvious that he's right and a woman over thirty, having had several children and in a world with no modern beauty products should starting looking for herself for a new card to play.

* Boa Hancock from ''Manga/OnePiece'' is a walking {{lampshade|Hanging}} of this trope. Except, that is, around [[ChasteHero Luffy]], who is apparently the ''only'' person who doesn't buy into her beauty. All the other characters, however, forgive all the nasty things she does to them (if not that they didn't even ''notice'' that she was doing nasty things to them). In fact, her catch phrase is "Everyone would forgive me... for I am beautiful!" The thing is, she's absolutely right. This includes literally [[KickTheDog kicking puppies, kittens]], and [[CrossesTheLineTwice baby seals.]]\\\

* In ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey, Christian Grey's unparalleled hotness is often sufficient to make Ana forget about his latest bout of physically harming her, stalking her, bullying her into doing what he wants, etc.

* In Tim Fish's ''Cavalcade of Boys'' series, Gordon, the fat old troll with missing teeth and a comb-over, is universally reviled, although he never does anything worse than being a sugar daddy to a series of young hotties. The main character, Tighe, sometimes behaves in even more morally questionable ways, but since he is young and hot, not only does he get away with it, but he also even gets to pass moral judgment on other characters.

* This trope is mentioned in the Halloween episode of ''WesternAnimation/EekTheCat'', where a MsFanservice evil witch captures ghosts, wanting to make them into a cosmetic face cream. When one of them comments on how mean she is, her response is a cocky "Yes, but I'm cute, so I get away with it!"
