* Gwen Wu from ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyB'' is Portia's BetaBitch.



* Claudia Kishi of ''Literature/TheBabySittersClub'' is crafty/artsy but has problems with grades. In TheMovie, she has to go to summer school and is shown to be unable to remember the digestive system. In most of the books, though, it's indicated that while Claudia [[BookDumb isn't very good at school]], she is, in fact, intelligent. Mostly. Spelling, one of her defining not-too-bright traits, improved for awhile, before [[{{Flanderization}} plummeting to near elementary-school-levels]] in the later books, to the point that it became a fandom joke.

* Jamie Chung's stint on ''Series/TheRealWorld'' has led her to run the gamut with this trope. She plays a type two in ''SamuraiGirl'', ''Film/PrincessProtectionProgram'', and ''Film/SororityRow''. Subverted in ''Film/DragonBallEvolution''.
** She plays a type one in an episode of ''Series/{{Greek}}''.
** Her roles in ''Film/GrownUps'' and ''Film/SuckerPunch'' were an exception to this trope.

* On ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'', Josh Chan is a rare male version of this. He is handsome and popular, but he is also not very smart. He makes up for that, however, with our [[NiceGuy nice and kind]] he is.

* Trixie Tang from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents''. Trixie is universally considered to be beautiful in-universe (and by [[PerverseSexualLust many fans]]), is wealthy and also wildly popular amongst the other characters, especially fawned after by boys. But she is also shown to be extremely vain, venal and insecure, needing constant re-assurance of her appearance, her catchphrase being "Tell me I'm pretty!" spoken in a pleading voice that sounds as if she's near tears. This is, in effect, nearly the textbook example of the stereotype.[[note]]Like Dina Alexander (see ''Series/SaluteYourShorts'' above), she lacks prominently Asian features, so it's not fully a textbook example.[[/note]] This was subverted in early seasons where she was a ClosetGeek who was [[HiddenDepths nicer than she let on]], but {{flanderization}} happened and she lost her positive traits.

* ''LiveActionTV/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' has [[http://orange-is-the-new-black.wikia.com/wiki/Brook_Soso "Brook Soso"]] the half-japanese, half-Irish Inmate of Litchfield Pennetentiary portrayed by [[http://orange-is-the-new-black.wikia.com/wiki/Kimiko_Glenn "Kimiki Glenn"]] is the naive, talkative, new-age hippie who often annoys the other inmates with her non-stop talking and often ditzy like personality. She definitely fits the second example of this trope.
