** Hell, ''most'' protagonists in the mythos suit this trope (not to mention a few ''[[EvilIsSexy an]]''[[EvilIsSexy tagonists]]). It's become a running joke in the fandom that in order to star in a Slenderverse vlog, you must possess the kind of good looks that hold up under constant insomnia, SanitySlippage and being [[{{Squick}} splattered with blood.]]

* The three male leads (Alex, Jay and Tim) from WebVideo/MarbleHornets. They dress in baggy thermals and hoodies, sport MessyHair and CreepyShadowedUndereyes, and generally look as if they haven't slept in weeks (as per the nature of the [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos mythos]]).
** Jessica from Season 2. Same unhealthy pale skin, [[CreepyShadowedUndereyes dark circles]] and rumpled clothes, but many viewers found her quite attractive.

* [[Franchise/StargateVerse Samantha Carter]] in ''[[https://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-27400/DianeCastle+Xander+and+Yet+ANOTHER+Demon.htm Xander and Yet ANOTHER Demon]]'' is noted by Xander as clearly not trying to be attractive: no makeup, a masculine haircut, and wearing standard [=BDUs=] and combat boots. Yet he still thinks she looks just as gorgeous as Anise and could easily be a model if she wanted to.

* Widget of the WhateleyUniverse. She's very attractive, but she doesn't use makeup and she just slaps a bicycle cap over her hair, then jumps into baggy clothes and maybe a labcoat. She has a huge crush on Thunderbird, who thinks of her as a 'pal'.

* Spanish actor Jordi Mollà somehow keeps ending up looking like he just rolled out of bed in many of his, er, roles, notably in ''Film/BadBoys'' and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riVNiwGSqYs his Bacardi spot]], even when he ''does'' clean up.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/Persona5'': The nameless protagonist is this ''in spades''. He has a shock of curly, tousled black hair, bad posture, and hands that are perpetually shoved into his pockets, but he's easily the sexiest character in the game, and just as easily the sexiest lead from the series as a whole.

* ''Manga/WanderingSon'':
** Yuki used to wear ''a lot'' of makeup and wore a wig whenever she was outside. In later volumes she ditched the makeup and grew her hair out after being inspired by Nitori's sixth grade teacher. Her hair is apparently not all that combed either, and she's switches between casual and feminine attire often.
** Takatsuki's hair is often unkempt and [[ExpressiveHair expressive]], though he does also tend to comb it into a very tidy look.

* Mika of ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'' has MessyHair that does nothing to detract from his {{Bishonen}} looks.
* Oft-mentioned novelist Takatsuki Sen turns out to be one in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul''. Just prior to seeing her for the first time, Kaneki describes her as so beautiful that she has fans only interested in her looks. However, we've never seen her without MessyHair and quirky outfits suggesting part of her appeal is that she's a natural beauty.

* A Japanese governmental campaign to promote energy conservation has two characters, Mirai and Ima, a RightWayWrongWayPair kind of duo where Ima, a messy and lazy slob, receives instructions and tips from the organized, tidy Mirai. Early on, the campaign had backfired in a way, as the immediate social media response to this campaign is that their target audience, Japanese teenagers and young men, largely preferred Ima over Mirai, as they found attractive Ima's too-large and asymmetrical clothing, long MessyHair, and sleepy demeanor. (Mirai's overbearing and smug attitude at Ima in the TV commercials didn't gain her many fans either.)

Added DiffLines:

* Blackwall from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' serves as one. He has long, black hair with an equally long scruffy beard to match for it and is quite dashing. A female protagonist may even have the option of romancing him if she wishes.
