* Chapter 36.5 of ''NatsumeYuujinchou'' shows that Natsume, [[NiceGuy of all people]], had a reputation as the pretty-but-seriously-disturbed boy back in middle school. That sort of thing happens when you're regularly attacked by things almost no one else can see.

* This trope is Discussed and mocked through Zeke in Disney Channel's movie ''{{Minutemen}}'', when girls come up to him and ask, "You know, you're kind of scary and unapproachable... can we sit with you?"

* Taken UpToEleven with the Columbine High School shooting perpetrators. Yes, [[DracoInLeatherPants the shooting was despicable, but they were physically handsome]]. Oddly enough, a quick search on {{Tumblr}} (where most of the "Columbiner" community resides) shows that more people seem to be infatuated with [[JerkassWoobie Dylan Klebold]] than with [[{{Jerkass}} Eric Harris]] even though [[InformedAttractiveness Harris was considerably more conventionally physically attractive]]. This probably has something to do with the idea that TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside - while Klebold wrote predominantly about [[IJustWantToBeLoved wanting love]] in his journal, Eric's was full of violent fantasies, as was a website he ran on which he expressed racist and [[HeteronormativeCrusader homophobic]] beliefs as well. As ''USA Today'' so eloquently put it:

* Nico di Angelo from ''PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. Emphasis on the "cute", since he's only twelve years old, but he's certainly troubled after his sister's death. Taken to a whole new level in ''TheHeroesOfOlympus'' after he's been [[spoiler: through Tartarus, literally]] and we find out that [[spoiler: he used to have a crush on Percy that he couldn't deal with]], causing him to avoid other demigods.

* ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'': Wakaba sees Saionji as this, playing [[BroodingBoyGentleGirl Gentle Girl to his Brooding Boy]] even after [[spoiler:he's expelled for ambiguous reasons.]] Unfortunately, he's a bit more of a {{Jerkass}} than most examples and their brief relationship does ''not'' end well. * Jonah Von Brucken from ''AmazingAgentLuna'' is a perfect example of this. He is [[ChickMagnet considered handsome by nearly everyone in the series]], and has a [[DarkAndTroubledPast dark and troubled past]] with an attitude to match.

* Christian Troy on ''NipTuck''. He's shallow, sex-obsessed, and in the habit of treating his sex partners like dirt -- but he's also handsome, successful, and ''really'' good in bed, plus the [[FreudianExcuse unexpected vulnerable streak]].

* Turin Turambar from {{Children of Hurin}} and Aragorn from ''Literature/{{The Lord of the Rings}}'' are both described at points as being handsome but grim, though Aragorn downplays both the handsomeness and grimness in comparison to Turin.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' has Lightning as a rare female example. She's a beautiful soldier who was forced to become the head of her house at a young age following her parents' death, and fought long and hard as a soldier in order support and protect her younger sister, Serah. She puts up a cold, stern mask to hide her vulnerability, but in doing so estranges the very person she sought to protect, not even realizing when Serah was turned into a l'cie during her absence. When trying to save Serah from the government captivity, Lightning herself was turned into l'cie and was hunted as a fugitive.
