* 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]] he was wearing steel-toed boots. Barbara also counts as JewishAndNerdy.

The possible TropeCodifier was Japanese leader Hideki Tojo, who wore glasses and had an overbite like so many stereotypical nerds, and was portrayed as ''very'' nerdy in WorldWarII Allied propaganda. In fact, you could argue that the classic Nerd archetype is a combination of how Jewish people (supposedly) talk with how Japanese people (supposedly) look.

* 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.

* ''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.
