* 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.

** London Tipton from ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody''. A beautiful, rich, popular young girl... who just happens to be dense as a brick. It turns out that the role was not written for an Asian girl, as it's supposed to be a parody of Paris Hilton. In fact, Ashley Tisdale was originally going to play London with Brenda Song in the Maddie role, but they ended up being switched because the girls played the parts better. This is referenced in the [[BizarroEpisode alternate dimension]] episode, where the girls are their original intended roles.

In later seasons she is a BrainlessBeauty who NeverLearnedToRead.

* Ultimate Wasp from ''ComicBook/TheUltimates'', re-imagined as a Chinese-American woman, came off like this sometimes. While she was a brilliant scientist, her life and relationship choices were often ill-advised... to put it charitably. ''Ultimates 3'' saw her devolve into a superpowered [[AlphaBitch high-school queen bitch]], minus the high-school.
** Although somewhere along the line everyone (or at least the artist) forgot she wasn't Caucasian, reversing her initial RaceLift without explanation.

In fact, one of the only young, popular characters she voices that ''doesn't'' fit into this trope in some manner is Kahn "Connie" Souphanousinphone, Jr. from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''.
** In a twist of irony, Numbuh 3 claims that she is not an airhead in the series finale Operation: I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S.



* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', we have Francine's unseen adoptive sister Gwen; Stan's constantly going on about how hot she is (even recalling how beautiful she looked ''on Francine's wedding day'') and her parents favor her...but they openly admit that it's because she's an idiot who needs all the help she can get, while Francine is smart and clever enough to take care of herself.
** As Francine's father put it: "I mean can you believe it? An asian girl who can't do math?!"
* Younghee Mandlebom a Korean student/classmate of Leonard Helperman from Teacher's Pet

Male example: Texas from Teacher's Pet''WesternAnimation/{{Motorcity}}''. [[WordOfGod The creators]] say he's Filipino.



* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'': One-off background character Naomi Nguyen, though we aren't given any hints that she's Asian within the show (the last name is only present [[AllThereInTheManual in show notes]], and she doesn't look remotely Asian).
* Lee Lee, one of Dee Dee's friends in ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory''. Though, to be fair, she just has the exact same personality as Dee Dee and all her other friends.

* Hay Lin from ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' is the archetypal Type Two. A beautiful young Chinese girl, [[{{Moe}} petite and adorable]], sweet natured, kind, popular... and stupid. So very stupid. She spends most of the series getting led around by the pigtails, mostly by her friend Cornelia. Ironically Hay Lin is about as far from AlphaBitch or RichBitch as you can get, but Cornelia ''defines'' both. Funny
that she's Asian within the show (the last name is only present [[AllThereInTheManual in show notes]], and she doesn't look remotely Asian).
* Lee Lee, one of Dee Dee's friends in ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory''. Though, to be fair, she just
has the exact same personality as Dee Dee power of ''AIR''. She is seen being pretty smart in the comics -- both creative, bookish smart and all her other friends.

insightful when it comes to the people around her.

* Ultimate Wasp from ''TheUltimates'', re-imagined as a Chinese-American woman, came off like this sometimes. While she was a brilliant scientist, her life and relationship choices were often ill-advised... to put it charitably. ''Ultimates 3'' saw her devolve into a superpowered [[AlphaBitch high-school queen bitch]], minus the high-school.

* Ami of ''HiHiPuffyAmiYumi'' is the girly, sweet, distinctly [[{{Moe}} moe-moe]] half of a two-girl singing group. She's the fun, happy, friendly one who dresses and is a Japanese idol singer. She's supposed to be the "stupid one". (Note, however, that Yumi is ''also'' a Japanese idol singer.)
