* ''TheTwilightZone'' plays with this in one episode where a woman undergoes plastic surgery to become beautiful because she falls into the Most Horrible Ever category (there's a village made just for ugly people so nobody would be forced to look at them). Of course being ''TheTwilightZone'' there's a twist: [[spoiler:she turns out to be what many viewers would consider at least somewhat pretty, as she is played by [[Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies Donna Douglas]]. It's just that everyone in their world is hideous with pig noses and their beauty standards are built around that.]]

* ''Manga/BetrayalKnowsMyName'': Luka Crosszeria, aka Zess, possesses a Divine Level beauty. As Shuusei explains in eppy 6, "High-level Duras, known as Opasts, take on unbelievably beautiful human forms. They draw humans to them, to deceive them." After which Yuki immediatly concludes Luka is an Opast. When he arrives to pick Yuki up from school, all the students stare entranced at him. He's so beautiful even other Opast want him.

** [[XMenFilmSeries/ProfessorCharlesFrancisXavier Professor Charles Xavier]] is a Common Beauty in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' and ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', his past self in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' is an Imperfect Beauty, and his elderly self is Just Average. While he generally appears younger than his age (especially in ''Apocalypse''), the ravages of time catch up to him in ''Film/{{Logan}}'', when his health has sharply declined, and he becomes a Flawed Average.

** The ''[[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem Requiem]]'' version of the [[TheDreaded Nosferatu]] can be anything between 'Ugly AND Uncanny' down to 'Fearsome and Clearly Inhuman' since their curse is not specifically in a physical sense, but in a more UncannyValley-esque sense.
