Wiki/TheOtherWiki has an article on the "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_minority model minority]]" stereotype from which this trope is derived. Contrast AllAsiansKnowMartialArts, as most Asian and Nerdy characters lack the athletic ability for martial arts, though it's possible for these two tropes ro [[GeniusBruiser overlap]]. For the South Asian subtrope, see BollywoodNerd. For related tropes, see {{Nerd}}, JewishAndNerdy, and BlackAndNerdy.

* In ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', everyone in District 3 is implied to be Asian. While the books [[AmbiguouslyBrown don't specify the races of many characters]] (which is justified, as the setting is a dystopian America AfterTheEnd, so the racial definitions of modern society aren't the same), Beetee and Wiress from from District 3 are described as having black hair, ashen skin, and small builds, traits which are common for the rest of their District. (The ''[[Film/TheHungerGamesCatchingFire Catching Fire]]'' movie averted this by making the former black and the latter white—Beetee even gets the black-sounding surname of Latier.)
