* Every single one of Dan Schneider's TV shows have an example of this. In fact, its possible to say he might have a real issue with nerds and geeks, or at least someone in his writing department does, because at times it comes off as mean spirited rather than merely comic relief. Most depictions of nerds draw humor from the fact that the extent of their nerdiness is amusing. With these shows, however, the comedy is usually derived from them being beaten and abused from he fact that, as they're nerds, its funny to hurt them.

** ''Series/{{iCarly}}'' has Main character Freddy, whose crush on Carly is constantly exploited, and is regularly bullied and beaten by Sam, usually for no reason at all, and each time its PlayedForLaughs. He also regularly gets abused by Carly too, though to a lesser extent, though she never tries to hold Sam back, even when her abuse could potentially ''kill or maim'' Freddy. Then there's Neville Pappermen, who's something of a computer genius, being smarter than Freddy despite being younger, but an enormous JerkAss who's petty hatred of the iCarly gang always leads to him being physically punished or shamed in some way. He [[CampGay may]] or [[CampStraight may not]] also be gay, which leads to more UnfortunateImplications.

* There was an episode of ''SouthPark'' that had Stan temporarily giving up eating meat after he heard about how cruelly calves are treated on veal farms. Not only did he become increasingly physically weak as the show went on, but unsightly, puckering red growths began to appear all over his skin. It was later explained that these were [[VisualPun miniature vaginas, and that Stan himself was slowly turning into "a big pussy."]]

* Nelson from the ''Western Animation/TheSimspons'' is initially portrayed as a typical cartoon bully who makes life miserable for his classmates. He gets some characterization later on and Marge admits that Nelson is a lonely, awkward, misunderstood boy... but that he still should be shunned.

* Mocked (like always) on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' on two occassions. One occurs when the boys are caught smoking by their parents, who label it as [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking the worst thing they've ever done]], despite Cartman having gotten another kid to ''eat his parents'' earlier on. The other was after a visit to the "Museum of Tolerance", where the children were taught to respect the lifestyle choices of others (including Cartman's [[BigBoned fatness]]) - and the adults then [[HypocriticalHumor berate a smoker standing in the parking lot while smoking a cigarette, calling him "Dirty Lungs" among other things]].

* '''Hipsters''' (please note that this type is not to be confused with ''hippies''; the two terms were once synonyms). A nebulously-deployed yet relatively specific category of cool person (or aspiring cool person), typically denoted by a constantly-shifting taste in fashion (trucker hats, white belts, skinny jeans), musical taste (indie rock, dance-punk, GarageRock revival) and cultural interests (embrace of irony and postmodernism, being seen at cool parties). Sure, that attitude was all well and good when Creator/QuentinTarantino was the new hot thing, but somewhere between ''Film/PulpFiction'' and the rise of "metrosexuality," hipsters became associated with [[ItsPopularNowItSucks snobbery]], gentrification (see: the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn), superficiality, self-absorption and inauthenticity, and it is now common, almost reflexive internet parlance to attach the word "douchebag" after mention of the word "hipster". The main complaint seems to be that hipsters are simply an advanced level of poseur, re-appropriating the style and cultural trappings of a culture or counterculture they didn't get in on the ground floor of -- and they're spending lots of money to do it half-assedly. Most confounding of all, unlike just about every other lifestyle target mentioned on this page, almost ''nobody'' actually admits to being a hipster, therefore making them one of the most acceptable targets of all: the self-hating and/or in-denial Acceptable Lifestyle Target.

* '''{{Geek}}s / {{Nerd}}s'''. It still seems acceptable to make fun of somebody if their preferred hobbies aren't "cool" enough. (Or too solitary: see LonersAreFreaks). Seems to be diminishing for "computer" nerds as of late. If you can make a video game people are impressed now, not repulsed. Everyone else with a "tech" hobby is still out of luck. This has to do with a social change. Before everyone who had a computer knew how to program or at least had a programming book at home and programs were too simplistic to be interesting for the public. As people who knew how to program for a computer became scarcer and programs became complex enough to manage public interests more people feel the need to actively seek them out. Receiving even worse luck are people who are fond of anything Japan-related (that is, if they're not Japanese, or don't even look it). Which can be explained with UsefulNotes/WorldWarII as in France it is considered pretty normal to be an otaku.

** Expect that in some cases the nerd will be depicted as an InsufferableGenius, a SmallNameBigEgo, or other similar forms of JerkAss, so that making fun of them is something they deserved. It's common for bullying to be laughed off by others with the idea being that, clearly, the nerd was asking for it. Which, sadly, is often the thinking and justification of a lot of bullies themselves, there are people who view bullying as some sort of public service. Basically the thinking is that humans are social animals and it is our duty to conform to the social norms of our society. Therefore nerds, introverts, social outcasts, and other "weird" people deserve to be bullied just because they are weird, and bullying helps society by causing weirdos to shape up and be normal. This view is mentioned in [[http://www.explosm.net/comics/3094/ this]] strip from ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'', although in this case it just seems to be a joke pointing out the hypocrisy of intolerance towards intolerant people.

Very commonly represented as pathetic, lazy, obnoxious losers whose physical condition is their own fault, as they tend to be seen always eating junk food.

* '''{{Nice Guy}}s'''. Okay, they're able to get along with anyone, have many friends, are easy to talk to, and funny, but on the downside they're going to be portrayed as slightly reserved, never happy with themselves, have Jocks and assholes think they're easy targets, and will generally be shown to be useless when chatting up women, and [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys the woman will go for the Bad Boy anyway]]. Maybe the DoggedNiceGuy will get her in the end. Can be trapped in a weird subcultural purgatory of being too cool to be a nerd but not cool enough to be with the Popular clique. It doesn't help that in RealLife, "nice guy" is often a negative term used to describe the man who behaves in a stereotypically polite and caring manner towards a woman on the surface, but is easily seen through as immature, needy, not really interested in relationships beyond the sex part and resentful/dismissive of women who don't respond to their "niceness" with romantic or sexual attention. (i.e. Why won't she date me? I'm a nice guy! I held open the door for her! What a stuck-up bitch!)

** It certainly doesn't help that any time adults who live with their parents (or whose parents live with them) are represented, the media only seek out those who help to reinforce the stereotype. In other words, the jobless loser who can't do even the simplest things for himself and has to have Mommy do everything for him and who is utterly abhorrent to any prospective romantic partners because of this. Such people are probably in the minority, as it is likely that most adults who have similar living arrangements make an equal contribution to the household or are at least employed.

* '''[[MalignedMixedMarriage Interracial couples/those who choose to date outside their race]]'''. If someone chooses to date outside their race, they're very likely to be labelled as a self-hater, defying evolution, etc. Black/white couples are subject to this a lot, since the black half is accused of "wanting to be white" while the white half is accused of being a "wigger". Non-Asian females who are attracted to Asian males are accused of "liking small guys" due to the stereotype that Asian males are lacking in the, err, size department, as well as accused of being "weeaboos". In certain cultures, children can actually get cut out of the family for dating outside their race.

**And God help you if you happen to have no long-term romantic partner and/or children, because everyone will assume that your pets are ReplacementGoldfish for the human relations you don't have. Double this if you give your pets human names, quadruple if you anthopomorhize them public (insist on using gendered pronouns, talk about their personality traits :he doesn't like the color blue, she is always grumpy in the morning, etc.) and octuple it if you dress them up, create profiles for them on social media and throw parties for them.
