* ''Film/TenThingsIHateAboutYou'': While trying to figure out what kind of man Kat would be interested in, Cameron and Michael determine she likes "pretty guys like Jared Leto.Ē Used for comical effect when they later insinuate to Patrick that he isnít her type.
-->'''Cameron:''' Here's another problem. Bianca said that Kat likes pretty guys.
--> ''They stare at each other.''
-->'''Patrick:''' (affronted) Are you telling me I'm not a pretty guy?
-->'''Michael:''' ...He- He's very pretty!
-->'''Cameron:''' Yeah, I- I just wasn't sure. I- I didn't know.
-->'''Michael:''' This is a gorgeous guy! [to Patrick] You're a gorgeous guy.

* Used a couple of times in ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'':
** PlayedForLaughs in various instances of so-called mortal enemies werewolf Shelena and monster hunter Veres telling each other as much, [[FoeRomanceSubtext unasked for]]. Shelena claims that scrawny and half-dead isn't her type, and who likes TallDarkAndHandsome anyway? And Veres informs her that blonde and foul-mouthed is nothing anybody would want. Guess who becomes the OfficialCouple by the end of the book.
** PlayedForDrama twice in a row when Shelena is chained naked in the villain's dungeon. Etvor tells Shelena that all of her attempts to look unbreakable aren't going to make her his type, but she's good enough to rape and to produce werewolf-hybrids anyway. Shortly after, freshly [[FaceHeelTurn face-heel-turned]] Veres comes waltzing down to declare that no matter what she may have tried, running around naked in front of him or nursing him back to life while threatening to kill him afterwards anyway would never make him fall for her because it shows that she is ruled by animalistic instincts and has no real heart for love, and that's disgusting and not his thing. [[spoiler:Veres, at least, was bluffing and talking bullshit out his nose because he needed time to weave a spell to free Shelena and the villains were listening in.]]

* ''{{Friends}}'': This is [[{{JustFriends}} Monica's response to Chandler suggesting he could be her boyfriend]], stating she needs someone older and more mature. Despite that, a year later they become intimate, as well as the-longest running couple of the gang, even becoming HappilyMarried.

In some cases, though, this trope may be used to ratchet up the creepy factor when a rapist or paedophile has captured the protagonist. While the phrase spoken in this manner highlights the particular perversions of the villain in question, it can also serve as a means to relieve the audience that, while the villain may have some violent plans in mind for the hero, an on-screen sexual assault is not imminent.

* Played perfectly straight with [[http://www.headlineshirts.net/youre-not-my-type.html this T-shirt]], which tells onlookers 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]].)

* ''{{Archer}}'' is delighted to get a "Honeypot" mission (seducing an enemy agent) until he finds the target is a gay male Cuban agent. Archer blatantly comes on to him in an outfit that would be an embarrassment at a Pride parade, and the Cuban, a suave gentleman, rejects him outright, saying "You're not my type". Naturally, Archer is offended and yells "I am ''everyone's'' type!"
