Even The Ghouls Want Her

The person in question attracts not only humans but monsters/undead

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
It's tough being beautiful. Here you have to maintain an image to attract both guys and girls, working hard to keep that cute vulnerable image even though you're a Covert Pervert and secretly want the attention.

But apparently your standards have lowered, because now even the ghouls want you. Maybe you're just innocently walking through the haunted house of an amusement park when one of the ghosts hits on you. Or maybe you're getting hit on by a few dog or fox demons.

This is not to be confused with someone who intentionally dates such creatures, in order to qualify they have to attract the attention (wanted or not) of supernatural creatures and the undead. Also, goddesses and angels generally don't count, as they aren't really creepy enough to be an issue for normal people to date.

    • 3x3 Eyes Yakumo ends up attracting a beautiful but creepy three eyed girl who winds up taking his soul. In the sequel series, he attracts a demonic parasite in charge of suppressing the original girl's memories.

    Why is this specific to women? Is it because Virgin Power is what typically draws the ghouls and A Man Is Not A Virgin? It needs to be there in the description, is why I'm asking.

    Also, shouldn't deities and angels count so long as the object of their affection considers them repulsive? Many angels in Christian mythology had to announce "Fear not," whenever they showed up because they were that terrifying to behold.

    So a fantasy version of Mars Needs Women.

    3x3 Eyes doesn't count. He basically attracts one supernatural being as the premise of the show, with the other one being a plot device for a single story.

    The Inuyasha link in the OP doesn't count for the same reason.

    Male Live Action Tv example: Alexander Lavelle Harris from Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

    Fan Fics have performed Flanderization of this part of his character to near-Memetic Sex God and Unwanted Harem levels (especially when it comes to Crossovers), but the fact still stands that the majority of the women that have been attracted to Xander during the series' run were either monsters (Anya and the mantis monster teacher, for example), Slayers (arguable example being Faith (which at the least was a one-night stand) and non-arguable example being the girl he dated during the Season Eight comics (until she got fragged by the newest super-vampire enemy to show in typical Joss Whedon fashion that He Was A Big Threat)), or Willow (although they were Like Brother And Sister, the attraction was/is there... and she's the world's most powerful Wiccan).

    Because of this, a typical BTVS Fan Fic gag is Xander noticing that a girl is acting attracted to him.... and him dreading The Reveal about her Dark Secret that will undoubtedly come to pass, hoping it won't get him killed.

    Does this count? In Live-Action TV- The Xfiles : In "Excelsius Dei" at one point we see that Scully is surrounded by the disembodied spirits of some horny older men, someone in-show sees it and tries to shoo them off.

    • This would apply to nearly all females in hentai, in general, which usually has them being lusted after, and raped, by all manner of demons, and the like.

    Both Casca and Farnese of Berserk have had to deal with the unwanted attentions of supernatural beings on occasion. For Casca in particular, it's part of her So Beautiful Its A Curse package making her something of a Trouble Magnet of the sexual variety, and it doesn't help things that the worst of these beings are drawn to her by the Brand of Sacrifice she bears as a result of the Eclipse, the traumas from which resulted in the loss of her mind.

    Groan-inducing snowclone title.

    ^Groan-inducing snowclone title that implies only females can be this.

    Unwanted Godspouse Syndrome could be a better title. A Godspouse is someone who is "married" or "dating" a deity or spirit (which may or may not involve sex (spirituality sure is weird!)).

    Oh dear God, that may be even worse. And suggests a subtrope of Married To A God, which is quite different.

    Didn't know about that trope, but "Unwanted" to me doesn't suggest "actually married."

    It's not specific to women any more than Even The Girls Want Her is specific. There are obviously male examples of the above, where men even attract men, and likewise there are male examples of this. But although not Always Female, there is a disproportionate amount of schoolgirls getting raped by tentacle monsters (not an example).

    I haven't added any serious examples yet, so Inuyasha is a throwaway example.

    A male example in Rosario To Vampire Tsukine's harem consist only of non-human girls, justified in that the school he attends is a school for monsters.

    What about "Attracting The Monster"?

    ^^So Even The Girls Want Her is not specific to women being the receiver of the attention, but Even The Guys Want Him is when the receiver is male. The "her" in this title implies that women are always this trope. I know this trope is obviously not specific to one gender; the name implies that this is Always Female.

    If "raped by tentacle monsters" isn't an example, there's no call to use it as a defense for the "her" in this trope's title.

    ^Attracting The Monster is much better, but kind of sounds intentional (which is not necessarily required for this trope).
