* WordOfGod has it that [[Franchise/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist's]] [[ColonelBadass Roy Mustang]] was supposed to be around Level III. Attractive, but not especially so. Despite this he's managed to pick up a massive number of [[FanGirl fangirls]] both InUniverse and in RealLife. [[spoiler: The former is justified in the [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist manga and 2009 anime]], where Mustang has been carefully cultivating his reputation as TheCasanova so that [[ObfuscatingStupidity nobody takes his behind-the-scenes politicking seriously]] and as cover for his spy network, to whom he sends coded messages under the guise of flirting with one of his many girlfriends. The [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]], on the other hand, has no such excuse, and Roy's womanizing persona appears to be genuine.]]

* Ugly Bob from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' starts off as Ambiguously Monstrous in his debut, but is upgraded to a full-on Lovecraftian BrownNote when he returns in a later episode. Of course, ''all'' Canadians look the same, [[InformedDeformity so we just have to take their word for it]].

* ''Manga/DeathNote'': WordOfGod admits Light and L were designed on opposite ends of the scale to better cloud the audience's perception of character morality. Light, who is "very evil", is often acknowledged to be a World Class Beauty, while L, who is "slightly evil", is anywhere between Ugly Cute and Normal Ugly. Alternatively, the Shinigami, who are neither evil nor good, are Clearly Inhuman, and the unseen Shinigami King is Lovecraftian.

* Even when ComicBook/{{Morbius}} was human people used to laugh behind his fiancée's back for being with someone as ugly as him. Being turned into a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent living vampire]] made his appearance even worse: people describe him as looking like "the back-end of a bulldog", and one of Spider-Man's first thoughts when coming face-to-face with him for the first time was "His face--it's hideous!" Morbius himself is shown to be pretty ashamed of his appearance on occasion. Being a brilliant doctor, he has said one of the reasons he wants to find a cure for his condition is because otherwise no one would ever again see him as anything but a monster.

** Princess Krahe is describes as a "world class" by her classmates. She is envied in both her beauty and her talent in ballet by a lot of characters.
** Mytho (at least from Ahiru point of view) is described as divine level, due to the fact that Ahiru became completely obssed with him, even becoming Princess Tutu for him. [[spoiler:It wasn't love as revealed in the final episode, becuase Krahe was the one who was really in love with him.]]

** Hancock and Shirahoshi are Divine Level beauty. Nami and Robin, especially Nami, and a few others are World Class beauty. Most other female characters, except the {{Gonk}}s are Common beauty.
** Kokoro's mermaid form is Lovecraftian for the main characters. She traumatizes them so hard that when they meet Camie, they say she is the first mermaid they've met, which means they are pretending that Mermaid Kokoro never happened.

** Yuki is shown to be at least "Special Average". She's seen as very cute, but almost never speaks. Kyon usually focuses his attention and gushing on the more straightforward/obvious beauties Haruhi and Mikuru, but sometimes throws in a small nod about Yuki here and there. [[spoiler:This becomes more pronounced in Disappearance where she gains a ShyBlueHairedGirl personality and WhenSheSmiles.]] Each of the girls is is implied to have a small legion of fanboys in the school, offset by some fact that makes them completely unapproachable. [[{{Jerkass}} Haruhi]] is accepted to be [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} completely weird in the head]], Mikuru is universally idolized and anyone who approaches her would immediately be jumped by her other fans, and [[EmotionlessGirl Yuki]] pretty much refuses to acknowledge anybody.
* In ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', the scarlet/flame-coloured eyes of the Kuruta clan are universally considered so beautiful that they're called one of the seven wonders of the world and are more valuable than diamonds. [[spoiler:The Phantom Troupe kills them for this exact reason

** Yui Yuigahama is likely a common beauty. Because she and Yukino have similar facial features but no one has commented on her appearance so far.
** If the Hikigaya siblings are right; Hachiman Hikigaya is pretty good looking. He would fall under imperfect beauty. Because his "fish eyes" and "gross disposition" counteract his similar neutral facial features, bar his eyes, to Hayato Hayama who is probably at least a common beauty. If they're wrong, Hachiman probably is Flawed Average on the scale.
