* In ''VideoGame/LiberalCrimeSquad'', when failing a seduction attempt, one of the possible response from the target is: "You're not my type, I like the sane".
* In ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', Juhani and Dak Vessar's falling out was started this way. Dak told Juhani that he was in love with her. She told him she couldn't return his feelings. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear as though Juhani was able to explain (or that Dak could comprehend) why--it's strongly implied that Juhani is a lesbian.

* Inverted and then subverted in ''Webcomic/CobwebAndStripes.'' Lydia and Betelgeuse bond a little when she has a CryIntoChest moment with him, and he teases her about letting a man so much older than she is sit on her bed. She remarks that "anemic little weirdos like me" probably aren't his type. The subversion comes from his response.

* Used in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' by Szayel Aporro during his fight with Renji. Since the dialog changes from the Japanese anime, English dub, or the English comics, he either says this word for word, [[CampStraight denies being gay]], or makes an ambiguous statement that could be interpreted multiple ways. In any translation, he rejects Renji after mistaking Renji's actions as flirtation.

* In ''Film/TheAlphabetKiller'', when the eponymous serial rapist/murderer (who happens to only target pre-teen girls with {{Alliterative Name}}s) captures the female cop who has been hunting him, he laughingly says this while driving to the place he plans where he plans to kill her and dump her body.

* Done rather painfully in ''Seeds of Yesterday,'' the last sequel to ''Literature/FlowersInTheAttic'' by Creator/VCAndrews. Cathy's three children - her biological sons Jory and Bart and her adopted daughter Cindy - are all together again for the first time in a few years, and Cindy has blossomed from awkward teen to lovely young college student. Bart is visibly taken aback by her transformation. Cindy approaches him rather hopefully, wanting to put their childhood enmity behind them, but he misinterprets her intent (or pretends to) and sais coldly, "You're not my type."

* Played perfectly straight with [[http://www.headlineshirts.net/youre-not-my-type.html this T-shirt]], which tells on-lookers that they are not your type in 13 different languages, including ''sign language''. (Be forewarned, for those wishing to rush out and buy it, the sign language on the shirt is... well, [[PrecisionFStrike pretty direct]].)

* In ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'': Admiral Cain has her former lover Gina imprisoned, tortured and raped for being a Cylon.

Cue BrainBleach.
