* ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'', the original and Legend series incarnations. The original Spyro was [[MouthyKid headstrong and arrogant]]; despite being the [[KidAppealCharacter youngest and littlest]] dragon in the Dragon Realms, which made him a lovable KidHero. The [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro Legend series]] Spyro became even more adorkable from being voiced by Creator/ElijahWood. He was a sweet, intelligent dragon who was always willing to help anyone.[[spoiler: And this is despite learning about where he truly came from and who he truly is -- TheChosenOne. He is suddenly told that he is a rare purple dragon and it is his destiny to save the entire world! On such short notice as well, considering he just learned he was [[LastOfHisKind one of the only dragons left]] and was actually [[HappilyAdopted adopted by dragonflies!]] ]]

** Bianca the bunny, who starts out as the BigBad's #2 lackey. Watching her try to act threatening in spite of her obviously meek, clumsy nature is more cute and funny than anything else. Naturally, this gets her [[MinionWithAnFInEvil a failing grade in Evil]], but makes it that much easier for her to pull a HeelFaceTurn when she realizes just ''how'' bad her boss actually is.

* Hikami Itaru from ''TokimekiMemorial Girl's Side 2'', an intelligent, hard-working, glasses-wearing stickler for the rules who is quite a bit awkward when it comes to girls. If there was ever any doubt, he earns this role in an early CG when the protagonist comes across him wearing a ''very'' dorky looking helmet. When she asks, he simply says that it's part of the school rules to wear them and seems confused by the very question.

** Zevran displays dorky attractiveness if you venture into his romance sub plot. Normally a dashing lothario, cold to emotions as his assassin life requires him to be, actual love is something he's not used to dealing with and it shows.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' has, believe it or not, [[LadyOfWar Cassandra]]. Once the player grows closer to her, either as friends or a LoveInterest, she lets her tough exterior down and reveals an idealistic romantic underneath. This becomes especially apparent when it's revealed that she's a huge fan of Varric's books, especially his smutty romance serials, which he considers to be his worst work.
** Cullen, the commander of the Inquisition's military, is as adorkable in personal matters as he is confident on the battlefield. This is only pronounced if he is romanced but if he is, the guy has this in spades. Funny that [[PlayerCharacter the Inquisitor]] who romances him has almost the same level of adorkability - a rare thing for a Creator/BioWare protagonist.

** The ''Jaws of Hakkon'' DLC adds Professor Bram Kenric, a visiting staff member from the University of Orlais. He makes terrible jokes, gets so absorbed in his reading that he has to be stopped from walking off ledges while his nose is stuck in a book, and gushes excitedly about history. He's also very cute with a lovely Scottish accent, and according to Scout Harding (with whom he has some slight ShipTease), he makes a delightful noise when startled.



* If you're patient, lucky and adventurous in ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces,'' you can catch [[TheStoic Hubert]] becoming this, usually either because of [[UptightLovesWild Pascal]]...or the Sunscreen Rangers:

Added DiffLines:

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' has not only Link, but Princess Zelda herself. Link hums while cooking and cheers when his meal is finished, sometimes has the option to make pretty corny puns and, if he isn't wearing a shirt, will take time to admire him physique in a very humorous fashion. Princess Zelda is a BadassBookworm who, upon seeing a frog, catches up to it on her knees and presents it to Link with a "Ta-Dah!" before excitedly trying to convince Link to eat it to study its effects.

Added DiffLines:

* Gaige in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' has "Excessive Adorability" on her WantedPoster. She's a tiny, slightly built nerd with GirlishPigtails who speaks in LeetLingo, references ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', and built her very own robot to deal with bullies (and may have overengineered it a ''little''). One of her ECHO casts has her berate her father for bringing in cocoa while she's trying to come across as badass, then drink it anyway. This being ''Borderlands 2'', she's still a maniac who gets a PowerHigh from building Anarchy stacks, but she's still pretty cute.

** [[StoryOfSeasons]] introduces Nadi - the {{Tsundere}} archetype who's ridiculously sweet and goofy at times and Lillie, the cheerful and outgoing weather girl who stammers and blushes ''extremely'' easily when matters involving love come up.

* A ''lot'' of Leon S. Kennedy's appeal in the ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' franchise is thanks to him being such a loveable dork and such a complete BadAss at the exact same time, though it [[DependingOnTheWriter varies from game to game]]. He's at his absolute adorkablest in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' with his [[LampShading deadpan lampshading]] and his cheesy [[OneLiner One-Liners]].

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' gives us Sherry Birkin who, despite being a rather BadAss government agent in the same agency as Leon above, still manages to act like an adorkable high school nerd (Maybe it's hiring policy or something). It ''really'' shows when she's put with the sarcastic and snide {{Foil}} that is Jake Muller, such as when escaping an avalanche on snowmobiles:

** "[[CoolMask Marth]]!" [[spoiler:[=/=] Lucina]], who is a ''complete'' {{Badass}} [[OneManArmy capable of solo'ing entire chapters]] but turns into a socially-awkward wreck of pure huggability when put into any kind of social situation.

** Alex is a Dragonmaster fanboy who gets to live his dreams and become an awesome hero. Despite this he is humble to the point of bashfulness and lets his girlfriend boss him around. Thogh that's probably wise [[spoiler:since she is a [[PhysicalGod goddess incarnate]].]]

** Hiro, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue'', likewise is a fan of Dragonmaster Alex. At one point, he talks a friend into playing lookout for him so he can get on the helm of a certain CoolBoat and pretend he's Dragonmaster Alex without anyone making fun of him. Of course, this is actually just pretext -- Hiro's ''actually'' after a one-on-one chat with his love interest. But it wouldn't have worked if he didn't like to pretend he's Dragonmaster Alex sometimes.
