Tropes about, or related to, beautiful people and things. If you see one of these tropes, a major aspect involves being as pleasing to the eye as possible.

Or pleasing in the beautiful sense, since some might find StuffBlowingUp appealing to look at, but that's RuleOfCool.

Sure beauty might be only skin deep, but as always, TropesAreTools.
