See also BollywoodNerd and JewishAndNerdy. 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. For related tropes, see {{Nerd}} and BlackAndNerdy.

* The trope is ''heavily'' referenced in ''[[{{WebOriginal/Takotsubo}} Takotsubo: The story of a superhero]].'' Chinese-American Cord Cai is a troubled young man who repeatedly [[InternalizedCategorism calls himself a failure because he's not a kung-fu artist or a doctor.]] After his fiancé Roland gets shot and the police completely mishandle it, [[TragicVillain Cord thinks this is a sign that leaving the streets is hopeless,]] shoots the murderer because gang justice is better than no justice, and resigns himself to running a [[NeighborhoodFriendlyGangsters vigilante gang.]] Cord clearly IS gifted--just not in the stereotypical fields: His eloquence after his ''InterruptedSuicide'' makes the nurse Thad fall in love with him, he's got a self-designed broken-heart tribal tattoo, and he started East 13 because the [[PoliceAreUseless police fucked up on Roland's murder,]] belying his strong sense of compassion and justice. As the tagline states, Cord is a superhero who [[WrongGenreSavvy shoehorns himself into the villain role]] because [[GenreDeconstruction he's never seen any Asian-American superheroes.]]

* Vietnamese-American comedian Dat Phan, as evidenced by the page quote. The assumption of this trope is how the eight other people sitting around him also failed math.

* Japan tends to be extremely fond of the GameOfNerds. Individual people vary, of course, but as a whole the nation is surprisingly into the Western sport.
