* Wang from ''Series/SpaceAboveAndBeyond'' is an unusual variant of this: he's specifically a ''baseball'' nerd. In one episode his parents send him a piece of sod from Yankee Stadium, and he's able to guess which part of the field it comes from by the smell.

* Cody's nerdy Asian girlfriend, Barbara, from ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody''. She even takes A.P. ''lunch''. She's also extremely competitive, as during one episode whenever Cody one-upped her she ''stomped on his foot.'' It only worked once, the next time she [[LaserGuidedKarma hurt herself because]] [[GenreSavvy he was wearing steel-toed boots.]] Barbara also counts as JewishAndNerdy.

* ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'', although its [[AnthropomorphicPersonification anthropomorphic characters]] are based on NationalStereotypes. The Asian nations who fit this trope are Im Yong Soo/South Korea (said to love gaming and the Internet) and Kiku Honda/Japan (shown to be a TeenGenius / GadgeteerGenius and something of an {{Otaku}}), and even then it isn't the main focus of their characters; Korea is best known as a KnowNothingKnowItAll AnnoyingYoungerSibling with his gaming interest mentioned [[AllThereInTheManual only on his profile]]. Japan's nerdy qualities are only brought up now and then. (However, in HighSchoolAU {{Fanfiction}}, Japan ''is'' typically portrayed as one of the most intelligent students in his class by fans.)
** Their sister [[GenkiGirl Taiwan]] is a less obvious example, but apparently she's an anime fan and she cosplays in the 2011 and 2013 Halloween events.
