** Our heroine, who has read too many nineteenth-century romance novels, expresses a desire for this kind of man. And for a year and a half, she has one (did we mention the guy's filthy rich as well?), until she realizes how empty a life with him would be, for he's also dull as powder (to borrow a term from ''LittleWomen'').

* In the ''AuntDimity'' series, Bill Willis was introduced with a beard, a paunch and thick horn-rimmed glasses when Lori first met him. He later lost all three, and Lori subsequently describes him as being "quite literally, tall, dark and handsome."

* Omar Sharif is the ''epitome'' of this trope in ''Film/DoctorZhivago'' (where his [[LoveDodecahedron multiple love interests]] are the center of attention, so [[MrFanservice female fans]] can spend the entire movie {{shipping}}) and ''LawrenceOfArabia'' (where he was a ''literal'' EnsembleDarkHorse because of this trope), both Creator/DavidLean films. It helps that he's [[FakeNationality Egyptian]].

Added DiffLines:

* John Reese from ''Series/PersonOfInterest'', though given that he's inhabiting a WorldOfSnark, he's just as likely to be described as "Tall, Dark and Deranged" by the likes of [[TheNicknamer Detective Fusco]].

Tall, Dark, and Handsome Stranger was a pulp fiction trope, particularly in mystery novels. {{Romance novel}}s still play it straight sometimes. This then led to a Tall, Dark, and Handsome casting trope for leading men: Creator/ClarkGable, etc. This is also one of the defining attributes of the LatinLover stereotype. A handsome black man can be described as such too, though anyone with the height and dark hair can pull it off.

* Colin Farrell in ''The New World'' and ''MiamiVice'' epitomizes the "Black Irish" sort.
* Movie version [[ChroniclesOfNarnia Prince Caspian]]. Susan even [[spoiler: develops a crush on him]].
** Movie version, adult/teenager Edmund Pevensie fits the description quite well. Also, he's a veritable DeadpanSnarker, starting from ''Prince Caspian''.
