** 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.)

** Also parodied in ''Discworld/{{Maskerade}}'', where the plump and plain Agnes Nitt is sick of condescending comments like this, and thinks to herself that boys don't normally fall for an attractive pair of kidneys.

** Also parodied in ''Discworld/{{Maskerade}}'', where the plump and plain Agnes Nitt is sick of condescending comments like this, and thinks to herself that boys don't normally fall for an attractive pair of kidneys. It's also played with in that the local standards of attractiveness in her native Lancre (but not in the city the story takes place in) actually favor large women; her main problem is her extreme emotional isolation.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', during the episode, "The Girl Who Waited," Amy Pond had an absolutely ''beautiful'' speech about this regarding her husband [[http://images2.fanpop.com/image/photos/12700000/Rory-Vampires-in-Venice-rory-williams-12748792-500-281.jpg Rory,]] whose CleopatraNose and general adorable awkwardness made a few people think that Amy might be a step or two out of his league (This was before he took his multiple levels in badass.) Then she says this:

* Done ''beautifully'' in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' where Johnny orders what is essentially a [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar mail-order bride]]. Of course what he gets is ''hideous'' and all he wants is to get rid of her. He drags her to places like the monster truck rally and pro-wrestling trying to drive her away, but it turns out she's into all that stuff as well and falls for him harder. After everything is said and done, he has an epiphany about how "she isn't pretty, and she doesn't smell too good", but comes to the realization that she's the perfect woman for him and decides her looks don't mean anything. Unfortunately this leads to him trying to woo her with his ''typical'' Bravo charm, which [[StatusQuoIsGod very promptly disgusts her and makes her dump him]]. Poor guy.

* Creator/DustinHoffman realized this when preparing for ''Film/{{Tootsie}}''. When made-up to look like a woman, Hoffman asked the make up artist to make him look more beautiful. The artist told him that's as good as he was going to look. Looking at himself as a woman he had an epiphany. In an AFI interview in 2002 he tearfully admitted there were too many interesting women he ignored before that moment because they didn't fit the standard of beauty that society had instilled in him.
