* Lee the narrator of WebVideo/CinemaWins is this trope through and though. He's a dorky fanboy who loves movies and will not hesitate to fanboy and Squee over them (even ones that were not well revived). He is also HappilyMarried to a woman who loves movies just as much as he does and has just had a baby boy whom he clearly adores. We know this because he frequently mentions them both in a lot of his videos. Which makes him even more adorable.

* Miniature wargaming vlogger [[http://www.youtube.com/user/TheJoeyberry Joeyberry]] is utterly adorkable, especially when going on about crushing her enemies and the inevitable [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpmnFljZ9cQ victory dances]].
* WebVideo/ScreenJunkies: Host of the show Hal Rudnick. He gets into all sorts of awkward situations, in particular during celebrity interviews, and his signature sign off is the very unmanly "bye bye wave" but it's part of his charm.
* Website/TeamNightSaturn: Anyone on the site might be nice and clever, but some of them are a bit nerdy and/or shy.
** Case in Point: In the series WebVideo/MovieRehab the main character Sag (played by Jack Skyblue) definitely belongs to the shy category.

** Gavin Free is also pretty geeky when it comes to Slow Motion, his other job. When he talks about it, he can be rather adorable.

* Wayne at pretty much everything he does in ''WebVideo/{{Vigilant}}''. When he goes on a first date [[spoiler: with Rita, he tells her he loves her and calls her "Mom" when he gets nervous.]] Everything he does is awkward in a likable way.
* ''WebAnimation/{{yourchonny}}'' of YouTube fame. His sense of humor is very silly and slapstick. He often goes into SelfDeprecation.
* While Powder Keg from ''WebOriginal/FalloutIsDragons'' is usually most definitely not this, his initial attempt to flirt with a random mare is an excellent example of adorkable actions.

** She notes in the same video that Ericsson is one of her sponsors, that its founder Lars Magnus Ericsson is her great-great-grandfather, and that from the fact that he was a great inventor whereas "I made...''this''", was proof of the concept of idiocracy.
** Another notable feature is her extremely stern face during robot demonstrations. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when she attempted to demonstrate a sandwich-making robot and said "Cue stern face!" Especially hilarious in her demonstration of her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTfPkfE1Lxk hair-washing robot]], which basically just slaps her repeatedly on the head while she's sternly brushing her teeth in the shower.
** Also, her eccentric swearing: if she's fully self-possessed she'll say "Oh, gosh," but when she forgets herself, the F-bombs fly.



** Strong Bad has also had similar moments, namely when geeking out over movies, TV shows, video games or his favorite band Limozeen.
** Marzipan occasionally fits this trope, especially in one toon where she obsessively gushes over a sandwich Homestar makes her, saying it's too cute to eat, much to Homestar's annoyance.
** To a lesser extent, Strong Sad often has his moments of being adorkable as well, especially when he's talking about his favorite things like art, literature and poetry. The fact that he often [[ButtMonkey gets looked down upon]] by the other characters, [[BigBrotherBully particularly his older brothers]], and his gentle voice (when he's not being whiny) also adds to it. He's also very cute when he smiles.

** Freelancer York (and arguably also his AI Delta, nicknamed Dee). He's a BadLiar, socially awkward, a bit of a ButtMonkey, and unusually [[NiceGuy nice and funny]] for a Freelancer--not to mention having an [[VitriolicBestBuds adorably snarky friendship]] with Delta.
** Freelancer Washington also is shown to have fit this trope in his younger days. He's a WideEyedIdealist, friendly, well-meaning but socially inept, and almost painfully straitlaced and bewildered by anything that's not by-the-book.
** Freelancer North Dakota's AI, Theta, IN SPADES. His first appearance is hiding behind North's leg from York and Wash, like a toddler meeting their parent's friends for the first time.

And his character in the "After Hour" series... he's pretty awkward, in the sense that his awkwardness makes him very pretty.

* While he's usually hammy and manly, [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe's]] review of ''Film/ManOfSteel'' is something [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34t0QQPlmLs that needs to be seen to be believed.]] Joe even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this at the beginning of the video.
--> '''Joe''': Okay, I'm about to geek out on you for 30 minutes here so please forgive me!
* Both the narrator Cecil and his love interest Carlos from ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale.'' Cecil is usually smooth-voiced and unflappable while on the air, but tends to slip into giddy fanboying glee over cat videos and Carlos. Carlos, meanwhile, is the OnlySaneMan in Night Vale, but appears charmingly awkward on his and Cecil's date in episode 27.

* Youtube blogger Gotham Scarecrow is usually actually kind of scary - he's always in character and he plays the sinister nerd impeccably - but he [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6K3wDOTJy2o got so excited about the new DC Animated Movie]] that he broke character (the first time I've seen him do so) and his full-on nerdy excitement is just hilarious ... and cute.



* ''[[WebVideo/ResidentEvilAbridged Resident Evil 2 Abridged]]'' depicts both Leon and Claire like this, albeit in different ways. Leon is depicted as a nasally-voiced and friendly FairCop, who tries and fails to be suave with [[DarkActionGirl Ada Wong]]. He fails in this last category, but does so endearingly. Claire, on the other hand, is a part-time {{Pollyanna}} who tries to keep everyone positive and [[OohMeAccentsSlipping sometimes]] sounds MinnesotaNice.

* Creator/CleolindaJones coined the term "Adoraklutz" to refer to Bella Swan (''Literature/{{Twilight}}''); however, this reflects the rest of the cast's reaction to Bella rather than Cleo's.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGdOwPYqQDk Cloud's]] Fleur, who has a whole doodling book, and her son at the end.
* WebVideo/{{Charlieissocoollike}} ([[http://www.youtube.com/charlieissocoollike Link to the channel]]). Once, he even made a video reading the responses he had received in a survey of teenage girls in an attempt to better understand them. Apparently, many of said girls think about him quite a lot.
* ''WebVideo/TheHappyVideoGameNerd'': Derek, especially when he {{squee}}s over the games he reviews.
-->"First up, let's get ''dangerous'', with good ol' [[WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck DW]], the KING of Disney cartoon cool!"
* Sexy Nerd feminist from Youtube (most certainly not of the [[StrawFeminist straw]] variety) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpLnPEVl538=channel Sarah Haskins]], who is tomboyishly dorky.
* ''The Webvideo/VlogBrothers'': The sadly departed Esther Earl was one in addition to being a [[IllGirl teenage cancer patient]] and undeniably a [[TheWoobie woobie]] despite her usually happy attitude. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj96HM9kDTQ This]] video should give you a bit of an idea how she was, though it's a MAJOR TearJerker as well... (R.I.A. Esther.)
* [[WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter Mr. Enter]], whether it be happily praising his favorite shows or showing off his witty sense of humor, he definitely comes off as this.

** ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'': Linkara. Hell, just look at his [[http://fetishfuel.wikia.com/wiki/Atop_The_Fourth_Wall his Fetish Fuel page!]] He's practically Adorkable ''incarnate''.
** Related to Channel Awesome fame - Creator/JamesRolfe, a.k.a. WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd.
** Donnie Dupre and Rebecca Stone from WebVideo/DemoReel. They have {{Dark And Troubled Past}}s and very little talent, but they're both well-intentioned and always try and be positive.
** Rachel who is part of The Nostalgia Critic's cast, and she and Malcolm continue to be adorkable specially for [[LargeHam hilarious overacting]].
