The Hottest Girls Are The Kindest

The more attractive females tend to be the nicest characters in the series.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Although attracive males are often be jerks, it seems to be the opposite with girls. This does have something to do with gender stereotypes, where women are associated with beauty and intelligence, and men are associated with aggressiveness and strength.

See also Beauty Equals Goodness, Females Are More Innocent and High-Heel–Face Turn. The "sexpot" variety of The Baroness is usually this trope, if she falls for the hero. Villainesses Want Heroes and Sensible Heroes, Skimpy Villains tend to combine to make this trope, in conjunction with the aforementioned tropes.

She may also be a Good Bad Girl.

This can happen with either gender, but, as previously stated, Hot Guys Are Bastards is more likely to be applied to males, and this trope is more likely to be applied to females.

    • Played with in Dragon Age. Leliana is pretty nice. Morrigan isn't, to the point where her dislike of random acts of kindness went memetic.

    Three lines isn't enough for me to understand the idea. Does this character have to wear very revealing cloths or is it enough that the guys all like her and find her attractive? Does kind mean going out of her way to show kindness or is it enough that she's not mean? Saying Lindsay from Total Drama Island is nice is completely vague and sounds like she just isn't mean. With only four examples one, Asuka, should not be completely averted. The only good example, the one that supports what you're trying to say, is the Yoko one. Saying that Litchi is one of the bad guys doesn't say anything about how kind she is or how hot she is.

    ^@mythbuster - Your example needs context.

    Also, is this trope limited to in-universe examples only, or is the relative hotness/kindness of the females in the examples being left to personal interpretation?

    You forgot to write that one of the examples comes from Blaz Blue.

    Just about every example in this trope is from a work that has multiple attractive female characters that's aren't all good or kind.

    So this is just a list of women who are attractive and kind? Not a trope. The two factors are neither related nor particularly contradictory.

    This also furthers the mistaken idea that "attractive person" is a trope. (That's not what Ms Fanservice actually is.)

    No, this is a subtrope of Beauty Equals Goodness. Which, incidentally, is a trope.

    Beauty Equals Goodness is about creators making good guys also beautiful. It predicts the results of observations that haven't been made yet. This proposal is descriptive only. "Kind pretty girl" is definitely a character type, but "Ms Fanservices tend to be the nicest characters in the series" is not an actual tendency.

    See also ^^ and ^^^.

    Yes it is. It overlaps with The Baroness and Villainesses Want Heroes quite often. If she's beautiful, there's a fair chance she'll also be sweet and make a Heel Face Turn on the good guys' behalf. If she's fugly, there's very little chance of it. In other works where she's already good, the fanservice girl may be the nicest one to try and justify why she dresses/acts the way she does to make ogling her less taboo.

    1) Is this about beauty or fanservice? 2) Is this about moral affiliation or personality?

    If this is "beautiful women tend to be good," that's not a subtrope of Beauty Equals Goodness - it is Beauty Equals Goodness.

    If this is "attractive men are jerks but attractive women are nice," that's notable, if it's true. But that doesn't seem to be a trend. Alpha Bitch is a huge trope, and we can list nice, cute guys as easily as nice, cute ladies.

    If this is "women who lose their clothes for the camera treat characters well," that seems interesting, but we have no evidence at all that that's a trend.

    If this is "kind pretty girl," well, I guess we could work with that. But we all know the usual problems in letting editors list whoever they find attractive.

    Most Manga/Anime girls that aren´t Yanderes?
  • On second thought, this is probably Beauty Equals Goodness but more.
