* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Snape is an aversion; he's tall and dark, but the author never describes him as handsome, even emphasizing his greasy hair and other less-than-desirable features. After the casting of Creator/AlanRickman as Snape in TheMovieOfTheBook however, he got his share of rabid {{Fan Girl}}s who do see him as TallDarkAndHandsome.



** Snape is an aversion. The author doesn't describe him as "handsome". Snape is however TallDarkAndHandsome to his rabid {{Fan Girl}}s.
** Harry is almost a carbon copy of James ([[RunningGag except for his mother's]] GreenEyes), he might fit in as well. He's described to be REALLY skinny, but by the epilogue he might have grown into his looks.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' Tatewaki Kuno has dark hair(black in the manga and [[AdaptationDyeJob dark brown in the anime]]), is one of the tallest characters in the cast and is very {{Hunk}}y in appearance. In the watermelon chapter and its anime adaptation, Kuno even introduces himself as "Strikingly handsome, dark and tall." Despite Kuno's [[WrongGenreSavvy own thoughts]], he's actually the LordErrorProne rival to the led.

** 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]].

* 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]].
