* [[TheWatson Doctor Watson]] in Franchise/SherlockHolmes has a few moments: for example, in ''Literature/AStudyInScarlet'', when he is hurt when Holmes bashes [[Creator/EdgarAllanPoe C. Auguste Dupin]], a fictional character he admires, and in ''Literature/TheSignOfTheFour'', when he is smitten with Mary Morstan and so nervous that he can barely get his words out straight, and winds up telling her a story about how a shotgun stuck its head into his tent one night, and he shot a double-barreled tiger cub at it. Also, in "The Three Garridebs" he is ''so'' awkwardly surprised that his friend would do ''anything'' (at all) [[UndyingLoyalty for his well-being]] when [[NotSoStoic Holmes witnesses his friend getting shot.]]

* He may not be nerdy enough in his home country, but Kazuhiko Kozuka of ''Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote'' would be nerdy enough here--he's a [[TeenGenius science whiz]] with a side order of EncyclopaedicKnowledge (and thus occasionally plays MrExposition). On the other hand, he plays the role of the sweet BoyNextDoor, which stands out from a cast consisting of a {{stock shonen hero}}, TheSocialExpert, and StoicSpectacles.

* Sarah Martin from ''Literature/KindaSuperGay''. She often babbles, especially when she's lying. A good example is when she tells Marquez that she's a time traveller who'd come from the future to save the child who would win the fight against robot overlords. Marquez isn't convinced.

** Brambleclaw is an obvious example especially as an apprentice being a ridiculously Keet NaiveNewcomer who's very energetic and eager to go on The Great Journey. This carries on to his days as [[spoiler: [[=ThunderClan=]]'s leader]] when he seems very energetic even though he's one of the oldest cats in the Clan.
