* Roger Rabbit of ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' is married to the sex kitten Jessica Rabbit (and are HappilyMarried too, even SickeninglySweethearts at times). Apparently toons see these things differently, since Betty Boop insinuates that it's ''Jessica'' who married up. When asked why she married Roger, she responds, "He makes me laugh." (This has a bit of FridgeBrilliance, actually. Most toons do seem to think that humor is the most important trait to have, so from their point of view, a clown like Roger would indeed be considered more attractive than someone like Jessica.)



* ''WesternAnimation/BettyBoop'', an iconic cartoon sex symbol, was, in many of her original appearances, the girlfriend of Bimbo, a short, round, goofy-looking dog. This changed when her character design was changed to make her not only more beautiful, but human, and her relationship with Bimbo was downgraded.

* [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in ''Fanfic/IfThemsTheRules'', when Melania is reflecting upon her marriage she says that its better for a beautiful woman to have an ugly husband. Because the woman is beautiful, the man would do a lot more for her and be easier to control due to the beauty disparity. Unfortunately for her since [[HotGuysAreBastards her husband is beautiful he doesn't give her a thing.]]

** The Leonard/Penny pairing also has it going. Leonard is quite {{Adorkable}} and isn't ''that'' bad looking (although still short-ish, balding, socially awkward and horribly dressed), but compared to the stunning Penny sure looks that way. The catch is, after dating a string of [[BrainlessBeauty handsome]] [[DumbJock but dumb]] or [[HotGuysAreBastards insufferable]] guys, Penny appreciates Leonard's niceness and intelligence.

* Good Magician Humphrey of ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' and all five and a half wives (long story)[[note]]Such a long story, it got it's own book; Question Quest[[/note]]. Humphrey, even as a young man, has always been short, gnome-like, and grumpy, while his wives have ranged from "merely" pretty (Sofia Socksorter) to inhumanly beautiful (Dana Demoness)

** From the same author, in ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality, Thanatos (aka Zane), the incarnation of death is described as a fairly ugly man, the woman he dates, Luna, is described as one of the most beautiful women of her generation (this is stated as fact and recognized by immortal powers such as Satan, not a subjective opinion). It helps when the Incarnations of Faith & Time team up to do some match making.

* Luluco's parents in ''Anime/SpacePatrolLuluco'' (although they're not married anymore). Keiji is rather rugged looking while Lalaco is ridiculously hot and wears an {{Stripperific}} outfit.

* The [[OneShotCharacter character of the day]]'s parents in an episode of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': called [[Recap/PokemonS1E34TheKangaskhanKid The Kangaskhan Kid]](Pictured [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/a/a1/Tommy_Parents.png here]]). The mother, called "[[UnnamedParent Mama]]" is a normal anime woman, while "Papa", is a very short, stout fellow, with a bowlcut, SkintoneSclerae, swirly marks on his cheeks(which his son inherited), and a proportionately large head. Papa is shown as a rather dopey fellow as well, holding their baby out the window of their helicopter, and then dropping him, resulting in their child getting [[RaisedByWolves raised by pokemon]]. Afterwards Papa [[NeverMyFault blames Mama]] for letting him hold him.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', Mr. Mxyzptlk (who is a tiny, bald, beady eyed imp) has Gsptlsnz, a hot wife; a ''really'' hot wife; a really hot wife who would (and probably could) do anything to get a little attention from him. Oh, yes. (They are both natives of a five-dimensional universe, so they may have differnt views of what is considered attractive than humans do.)

* Luanne Platter from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' is an attractive but mostly dumb blonde eventually married an ugly bucktoothed middle aged hillbilly known as Lucky.
** Also elderly Cotton Hill and his wife Didi. Dale and Nancy fit as well. Dale is scrawny (but "flexible" as Nancy puts it), with a gut, beady eyes, and bald ("and not in that attractive way, like Sean Connery"), and Nancy's a frequent MsFanservice target with her string bikinis. But it's his staggering idiocy, devotion to absurd conspiracy theories, and all around giblet-headedness that make you wonder how the two ever got together. Nancy spent over a decade cheating on Dale with the very hunky and charming John Redcorn....

That said, Nancy spent over a decade cheating on Dale with the very hunky and charming John Redcorn....Redcorn and primarily kept married to Dale for the sake of their son and her career. She eventually falls back in love with Dale after a HeelRealization makes her see he's more beautiful than she is where it counts.


Added DiffLines:

** Maybe the most extreme example is Cotton Hill and his two wives, Tilly and Didi. Tilly was a woman with a lot of class who was quite pretty as a young lady and Didi is a BrainlessBeauty. Cotton was quite fit and handsome as a young man, but by the time Hank was born had already lost most of his looks and was an enraged, screaming madman who started fights with no provocation, treated both of them like garbage, openly cheated on both of them with strippers, and was an objectively terrible father (neglectful to G.H. and outright abusive toward Hank). It's taken almost to the point of Deconstruction, since Cotton's marriages are very clearly shown to be abusive relationships that take their toll on his wives' self-esteem and sanity. Each eventually divorce him and wind up better for it.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11287688/12/In-Spite-of-Obstinate-Men In Spite of Obstinate Men]]'' Fleur Delacour's father is described as a "portly, relatively unattractive man" who nevertheless managed to marry a [[HelloNurse Veela]].



* The protagonists of Charles Perrault's ''Riquet of the Tuft'' . Prince Riquet is an incredibly ugly guy with a tuft, quite the wit and a kind heart; the Princess he's interested in is a DumbBlonde with [[AlwayssomeoneBetter a big inferiority complex]] [[TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry towards her ugly but much smarter and more popular sister]]. [[spoiler: Then it's averted: the Princess has a gift that will make the man she falls in true love with very handsome, and when she has her LoveEpiphany regarding [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan Riquet]], the "gift" kicks in and makes him much better looking. Since Riquet had previously used a "gift" of his own to make the Princess smarter and help her with her troubles, it all works fine in the end.]]

* Fairy princess Marianne and the Bog King from ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic''. Marianne is obviously what would be considered [[FairySexy fairy sexy]], although dresses different and is considered odd. The Bog King is a goblin who looks like a cross between a dead-tree and a mosquito, and is convinced no one can love him because he's so hideous - but is really more [[NotSoDifferent similar to Marianne]] than many of her own people. They end up falling in love.
