* '''Zig Zagged''': People pelt Bob with screams because his wings are so ugly, but it turns out they're actually fangirls wanting autographs. Once they get them it's revealed they're fangirls who like mocking winged freaks, but then it's revealed (again) they're all Tsundere and CantSpitItOut.

* '''Invoked''':
** Bob wants to get together with Alice, so he feigns being all emotional and angsty about his wings to try and get her to react this way.
** Bob was considered quite handsome and had the attention of many women. Alice was too shy to talk to him so she went to a MadScientist, JerkAssGenie, whatever and made a deal to give Bob a freakish trait so that everyone would be too afraid to go near him. Bob is now an outcast and Alice uses the opportunity to get close to him.

* '''Implied''': Bob has wings and while not too many people make a fuss about it, it seems Alice is the only one who wants to get near him romantically.



** Alternatively, this behavior is normal for Alice, for [[TheMessiah better]] or [[NightmareFetishist worse]].

** Alternatively Bob's wings aren't really ugly but Alice is WAY too into them, to the point that she constantly stares at them and tries to feel them up whenever she gets a chance. Bob is creeped out.

** Bob feels alienated by the wings because of the gawking reactions. People don't actually think they're ugly, but a [[ChildrenAreCruel lifetime of cruelty]] makes him believe they do. Alice has to work through the self loathing just to reach him.

* '''Deconstructed''':
** Bob feels alienated by the wings because of the gawking reactions. People don't actually think they're ugly, but a [[ChildrenAreCruel lifetime of cruelty]] makes him believe they do. Alice has to work through the self loathing just to reach him.
** Alternatively, the actual problems with humanoid wings are prominently addressed: being unable to sit in large backed chairs, being unable to lie on his back, [[WalkingShirtlessScene the difficulties of wearing upper body clothing]], the constant weight on the back, etc. Basically, [[BlessedWithSuck the actual reasons he could complain about the wings]]. Obviously, this can't apply if the wings are [[DetachmentCombat detachable]] or stored in {{hammerspace}} most of the time.
** Alternatively, Bob's disfigurements are truly [[GoMadFromTheRevelation horri]][[BodyHorror fying]]. Alice is the ''only'' one that thinks they're beautiful, causing people to distance themselves from her.
** Again, alternatively, Bob finds his unusual features very ugly and would do anything to get rid of them. He is seriously annoyed by Alice who doesn't care about his personal feelings and only likes him because of those features. Bonus points if Alice is an annoying little fangirl, and Bob reminds her of some character from her favorite (badly written) work of fiction.
** Alternatively one more time, Bob calls Alice out on her claim, who admits that it was a lie to cheer Bob up/make him ignore his wings. This causes Bob to react even worse to Alice then normal.
* '''Reconstructed''': But, once Bob gets a good PR image thanks to Alice helping him do community/hero work, his self esteem improves and people respond positively to him.
** Alternatively, Bob gets help for dealing with the physical difficulties presented by his wings, not unlike the help reserved for people with disabilities.
** Alternatively, this behavior is normal for Alice, for [[TheMessiah better]] or [[NightmareFetishist worse]].
** If the physical problems with Bob's wings are addressed, he replies that with magic or hammerspace, he can make them disappear and reappear whenever he wants.
