* ZigZagged on ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}.'' The title character's sister, [[LovableLibby Quinn]], will sometimes complain about how ''hard'' it is to be attractive and popular, despite the obvious glee she gets from having boys fight over her. However, over the course of the series it becomes clear that she's internalized her role as a BrainlessBeauty to the extent that she really doesn't think that she ''can'' be anything else, though she [[CharacterDevelopment eventually overcomes this]].
-->'''Quinn:''' I mean, sometimes I'm walking down the hall with [[GirlPosse Sandi, Stacy, and Tiffany]], and suddenly I'm outside of myself, watching, and it's, like, "Who ''are'' these girls? Can't they talk about anything besides guys, and clothes, and cars?" But then, what ''would'' we talk about? You have to be good at something. [...] I figure, being attractive and popular, that's what I'm good at. Maybe it's not that important, but, you know, it's what I can do. ''(nervous laugh)''

* ''Film/TheNeonDemon'' essentially revolves around this trope with the lead Jesse. While her captivating beauty helps her rise through the ranks of the modeling world quickly, it also makes her a target for envious models as well as an obsessive admirer who attempts to rape her. It only gets worse from there.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Sansa Stark. When a DudeMagnet breeds with DoomMagnet, this is the result. Sansa is frequently praised as being very beautiful and she tends to get into trouble because of it with a nightmarish gallery of suitors Joffrey expresses a desire to rape her when she's being wedded to Tyrion, she very nearly gets gang-raped in the King's Landing riots, Littlefinger has a creepy obsession with her and even ''Ramsay'' admits he finds her attractive. Even Tyrion had a desire to sleep with her, but he refused to force himself upon her. Sandor claims to Arya that he should have "fucked her bloody" when he had the chance during The Battle of Blackwater, but it's unclear how much he meant it (considering his obvious soft spot for Sansa) and how much he was merely saying it to goad Arya into killing him. Note that the last two were the least unpleasant.

* In TheBible and TheQuran, Joseph is MadeASlave and receives the romantic attention of his master's wife. When he turns her down, she hits him with a FalseRapeAccusation and gets him thrown in jail for several years. Based on this story, both Jewish and Islamic legends describe him as being one of the handsomest men to ever live.
** He may have inherited it from his mother Rachel: Jewish tradition notes that when the family is meeting Joseph's EvilUncle Esau, Joseph is listed as stepping out in front of his mother, while his half-siblings stood behind theirs. Apparently Joseph was worried that Esau would see Rachel and want to kidnap her for himself.
** In the Book of Esther, the king of Persia has a nation-wide beauty contest to pick a HotConsort. ([[TheBluebeard He got rid of the last one]].) Esther seems determined ''not'' to win, since she doesn't do anything to beautify herself before meeting him. [[SpringtimeForHitler Guess who winds up the new queen anyway]].



** Deirdre of ''Literature/TheExileOfTheSonsOfUisnech'' was an Irish princess whose legendary beauty made her life suck so much (kings fought over her) that she is given the epithet "Deirdre of the Sorrows".
