** Rose Quartz would count as World Class Beauty, as she has also been portrayed as extremely beautiful, with Greg and Pearl both commenting on her looks.
** The other 3 Crystal Gems, Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl, would count as Common Beauty. Garnet and Pearl have both been the object of crushes (Jamie and Dewey respectively) and Vidalia uses Amethyst as a model for many of her paintings.

** Casca, for her part, is a World Class beauty, particularly in her post-Eclipse [[TheOphelia Ophelia]] state. Unfortunately for her, [[SoBeautifulItsACurse her beauty is very much a curse]], as there are a lot of humans and demons that want her, whether she wishes it or not.
** Guts, meanwhile, may qualify as a World Class/Imperfect Beauty himself, given how much attention he gets from the female members of his new group. In the past, even some guys (Griffith especially) wanted him, and after the Eclipse, he attracts his share of demons as well, and not just because of the Brand on his neck.



* In ''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.

* Based on the amount of attention she gets (mainly from very minor characters), Aerie from ''BaldursGate 2'' might just qualify for World Class beauty. By the same logic, at least Jaheira and perhaps other female party members as well qualify for Common beauty.

* In TheKingkillerChronicles series, the fey creature Felurian is in the Divine beauty cateogry, basically being a sex goddess with whom men fall instantly in love and presumably die either from exhaustion or separation. Then there's Denna, who from Kvothe's point of view is a World Class beauty. However, there are some subtle hints from other characters that Denna is merely Common or Imperfect beauty, implying that Kvothe's impressions are skewed by his love for her. But because she is constantly with other male suitors and essentially lives off her looks, she probably is rather beautiful. Most other women in the series fall into the Common beauty category.

** Éowyn, the only human woman given any significant character development in ''TheLordOfTheRings'', probably counts as a World Class beauty.
* In the ''SwordOfTruth'' series, [[ActionGirl Kahlan]], Cara, [[TheVamp Merissa]], [[SoBeautifulItsACurse Nicci]], [[HotWitch Shota]], and possibly [[FieryRedhead Jennsen]] would all be World Class beauties. From what other characters say, it seems like [[TheHero Richard]], [[EvilOverlord Darken Rahl]], and [[DeadlyDoctor Drefan Rahl]] are male examples of World Class beauty.

* ''Series/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:

** Amongst men, Jaime Lannister and Loras Tyrell are probably this. Jaime is [[WordOfGod stated by GRRM]] to be the "Beauty" to Brienne's "Beast" (even though one could argue Show!Brienne isn't that much of a "Beast"). Loras has managed to achieve a special nickname, "The Knight of Flowers", that refers directly to his good looks and flair. More importantly, WordOfGod [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-YgEvxHDwE proclaimed]] him "Sexiest Man of Westeros".

** Brienne of Tarth gets a lot of sneering for being "big" and dressing like a man, but Jaime is the only one who outright calls her ugly, and that's only when he's trying to get on her nerves. So she's probably supposed to be Cool/Special Average or Flawed Average depending on your point of view. She's special because she's a [[AmazonChaser tall, athletic warrior]]. Or, she's flawed because [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon she's a big, muscular woman who fights]]. [[spoiler:Though it seems she's World Class Beauty in Tormund's eyes.]]

** Jon Snow is referred to as being [[{{Bishonen}} uncommonly "pretty"]] several times, but it's not clear if this means he's supposed to be World Class Beauty or just a Common Beauty in a setting that's unusual (especially since in at least one of those occasions the adjective is used to deride him for his [[DudeLooksLikeALady supposed lack of toughness]]).

Nobody on the show points out any flaw in his looks other than his dwarfism (which, however, ''is'' considered a huge deformity in this world). Margaery, on the other hand, notes that once you get over it he's actually quite handsome.
