* In the original ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Tifa is a World Class beauty, able to get 'interviewed' in a brothel for the position of a wife for a powerful crime boss. Aeris is a Common beauty, although one canny enough to overcharge admirers she dislikes for the flowers she sells. Cloud in a dress is an UncannyValleyGirl, described euphemistically as being 'healthy-looking', and said to be 'not bad' if you don't look closely.

Cloud is a Flawed Beauty - he's convincingly good-looking enough to pass as a former [[ElitesAreMoreGlamorous SOLDIER 1st Class]] and more than a few women ([[MachoCamp and Mukki]]) in game are immediately attracted to his looks (Johnny describes him as being a 'sexy playboy'). On the other hand, he's also seen as overly intimidating and with CreepyBlueEyes that are not well-liked. Several other characters (including Cid) describe him as being non-specifically, unpleasantly odd in appearance, likely the effect of his [[TheMentallyDisturbed winning]] [[JerkassFacade personality]].

** Sansa Stark and Daenerys Targaryen are definitely World Class Beauties at least. They're probably the two characters whose level of attractiveness becomes a plot point the most often. Their great looks are remarked upon by several characters, and several important characters fall in love with/lust after them in a way that affects the plot. Walder Frey accuses Talisa Maegyr of having been preferred over his daughters solely for being a World Class Beauty as well. Amongst men, Jaime Lannister and Loras Tyrell are probably this.

* GameOfThrones is a bit of a tricky case, because despite the large amounts of {{Fanservice}} not many characters' looks are referred to in-universe, probably because [[ShowDontTell the actors' looks speak for themselves]]. Here are some attempts:

She's special because she's a [[KnightInShiningArmour valiant]] [[AmazonChaser fighter]] with [[InnocentBlueEyes bright blue eyes]] and [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold blonde hair]]. Or, she's flawed because [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon she's a big, muscular woman who fights]]. ** Tyrion Lannister is Flawed Average in this adaptation (or Imperfect Beauty according to Margaery Tyrell).

* PowerGirl has pretty consistently been treated as "the hot one" by other superheroes, with even the polite one-woman-man Superman commenting that she's exceptional. More recently, this gets played for humor regarding her large (even by superhero standards) breasts. * The character Chandra in "ComicBook/RisingStars" had the power of causing everyone who observed her to see her as the observer's own idea of the perfect woman. She couldn't turn it off, so she was treated as a Divine or World Class beauty, although she was merely above-average under the illusion.

* ''Manga/YamadaKunAndTheSevenWitches'': Going by the characters' reactions and comments to each other, Shiraishi and Miyamura are World Class Beauty, Itou and Odagiri are Common Beauty, and Yamada himself is Just Average. It gets muddled up somewhat thanks to GenericCuteness and [[OnlySixFaces very similar faces]], however, so the major clue to how good a character is looking is not his/her actual appearance, but his/her body language - Miyamura, for example, has a more elegant and charming body language than Yamada.

* Sunako from ''TheWallflower'' seems to constantly switch between Normal Ugly and World Class beauty. [[SoBeautifulItsACurse The four guys fit the latter description too]].
