* Played hilariously straight in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'': The Nymph, a fey in the 3rd Edition Monster Manual, is so beautiful that looking at one can blind or kill. She can, however, turn it on and off. (In Second Edition, whether the nymph killed or blinded was based on whether she was naked or clothed, respectively, and couldn't be turned off voluntarily.) The above being [[OlderThanTheyThink based on]] actual Myth/GreekMythology.

* ''Webcomic/StrongFemaleProtagonist'' had a minor biodynamic character who's mutation was that she was basically a GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe who complained about how nobody ever took her seriously because of her looks- everyone just viewed her as living FetishFuel. Another biodynamic woman, who resembled a humanoid reptile, called it FirstWorldProblems and said that all her problems could be solved with a can of body paint. As the conversation was taking place in a support group for biodynamic women, many of whom had far more extreme mutations than the second woman (including one who was a living liquid), this did not really do the second woman any favors.

* The hero(ine) of ''The World Well Lost'' mentions falling victim to something like this, although it's not due to hir being brain-breakingly beautiful, so much as it's due to the fact that s/he's beautiful and [[{{Transsexual}} transgender]], and some insecure straight guys react badly to this.

** There's also the fact that you probably wouldn't be too proud of your physical appearance if a) you were engineered to have it, and b) the person who designed said appearance was your '''father'''. Implications... ''unpleasant.''

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gao_Changgong Gao Changgong]], Prince of Lanling. He was a competent military officer who happened to also have a [[PrettyBoy pretty]], [[{{Bishounen}} effeminate face]]. After a "battle" where the entire enemy side did ''nothing'' but laugh and crack jokes about him being a girl, him doing needlework [[note]] A stereotypically female activity in Chinese culture [[/note]] and not fighting girls, morale started to break down in Gao's army. To end this, the prince wore a mask when on the battlefield so as to look more fearsome. By all accounts, it worked and enemies were terrified by the mask's inhuman appearance (the bulging eyes probably helped).

* Creator/BlakeLively is a stunningly beautiful lady (with her page on ThisVeryWiki bearing a warning not to gush about her beauty) and naturally gets a lot of publicity for it. But she is first and foremost an actress and her early parts were of MsFanservice roles - including her StarMakingRole ''Series/GossipGirl''. Fans and critics widely expected her to remain famous for her fashion and marriage to Ryan Reynolds. She was also able to transcend this - taking drastically against type roles in ''Film/TheTown'' and ''{{Film/Hick}}'' as well as winning acclaim for her performances in ''Film/TheAgeOfAdaline'' and ''Film/TheShallows''.

* [=DiDi=] of ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' is so attractive it ruins her sex life (her numerous boyfriends are all incapable of lasting long enough in bed), and generally lives the trope, never learning to form normal social relationships because ''everyone's'' reactions to her are so weird.

* [=DiDi=] of ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' is so attractive that it ruins her sex life (her numerous boyfriends are all incapable of lasting life. No man she has ever slept with has been able to last more than a few seconds before blowing his load (one didn't even last long enough to ''start having sex with her in bed), and generally lives the trope, first place'', just seeing her naked was enough). As a result, she has never learning had an orgasm (though she eventually manages to form normal finally have one). She also hasn't developed proper social relationships because ''everyone's'' reactions to skills, since her are so weird.looks cause pretty much everyone to behave strangely around her.
