* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "It Isn't the Mane Thing About You", Rarity wastes a day angsting over her ruined mane before realizing that, by "shin[ing] from the inside out", she can still come across as beautiful (with a little help from a punk rock vest and mohawk hair weave).

* There's a short story by Dick King Smith about a male fairy who is mocked for being bald. He mentions there is one red-haired fairy who isn't beautiful but has a kind face. After he learns his Aesop about vanity the red-haired fairy sits down next to him and tells him [[JustTheWayYouAre she finds him perfect the way he is]]. He is then said to see that she doesn't just have a kind face, she is beautiful, providing a suggestion that people often seem more beautiful when they are good-hearted.

* ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'': Art's comment on Hilary and Kat's respective appeals basically boils down to this; Hilary is gorgeous, but she's a petty, vindictive bitch with no redeeming qualities beyond her sex appeal. Kat is just as gorgeous, if less garish about it, but she is a decent person whose bad side only comes out as a defensive reaction to Hilary's abuse. Art implies that Hilary is jealous of Kat for being the better person of the two, and that Kat is ultimately more attractive because of her better personality.

*** To be fair, the show takes place in the high fashion industry. Compared to [[NothingButSkinAndBones them]], she would be considered pudgy.

* ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'': Variant. Drax spends the entire film telling Mantis that she is ugly as sin, despite the fact that everyone else considers her a CuteMonsterGirl at absolute worst. Drax assures Mantis that it's better to be ugly; that way if someone loves you, you know it's real, while beautiful people can never be sure.

** Sam Tarly is definitely more overweight than the rest of the main cast, and yet he is one of the nicest, most loyal, and trusted people in the series.
** Tyrion is a good example - nowhere near as attractive as his siblings, nor anywhere near as morally declined.

* ''Jennifer Murdley's Toad'' by Creator/BruceCoville (part of the ''Literature/MagicShop'' series) is about an ugly girl with a nice personality. At the climax of the story she encounters a witch who [[spoiler:offers to turn her "inside out," metaphorically speaking, so that her inner beauty will be on the outside, but upon thinking about this, Jennifer realizes that this would make her ugly on the inside, which she realizes would be worse]]. So she stays outwardly ugly (but a good person).

** Played straight in the [[Series/ThePhantomOfTheOpera 1990 miniseries]]. Although Christine initially faints at the sight of the Phantom's face, she gets over it and by the movie's end, is able to remove his mask and kiss him without flinching, showing that she knows he's a good person deep down. (Even though while he isn't nearly as bad as his theatrical incarnation, he still murders several people who dare to venture into his lair and terrorizes Carlotta much in the same way as he did in the show.)
