* The short-lived reality TV dating show ''Mr. Personality'' had the premise that a woman would choose a prospective husband from a number of men who would all wear masks around her so that she would judge them based only on their personality instead of their looks. However, ''all'' of the men being HollywoodHomely at worst turned this premise into one gigantic BrokenAesop.

* Played with in ''ComicBook/Deadpool'' and the GreatLakesAvengers: Deadpool goes on a date with Big Bertha, and is obviously disappointed when she shows up in her slender form rather than her Big Bertha form. Big Bertha lectures him about how it isn't any better than people who pursue her just because of her slender form's beauty, to which Deadpool replies he's been waiting for someone to say that for a long time - at which point [[BodyHorror he unmasks]]. Cue Big Bertha [[BrownNote vomiting]] from the mere sight of Deadpool's face.

* From ''Literature/TheBible'': a message to wives and women in 1st Peter 3:3-4:
-->''Do not let your adorning be the outward adorning of braiding the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine clothing. But let it be the hidden nature of the heart, that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.''

* ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'': Both [[BadAssPrincess Marianne]] and [[EvilOverlord the Bog King]] are burned by past relationships where they fell in love with somebody because they were good looking. [[spoiler: The two fall in love with each other even though the two are nothing like what they each consider attractive [[note]]Marianne is from a typical good looking fairy race. The Bog King is a insect humanoid and his past love was a frog humanoid.[[/note]] because they are able to look past their different appearances and see similar personalities.]]

* 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.
