* Jodie from ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}''. She wasn't ''that'' nerdy, but [[EducationMama her parents]] were constantly on top of her to do well, often at the expense of a social life. Mack was also one of these to an extent, although he was also a football player and one of the popular kids.

* Woods later carried this trope into Wrestling/TheNewDay, a trio of gleefully nerdy black men. Their pinnacle of nerdiness came at WrestleMania, when they came out into the ring dressed in [[Anime/DragonBallZ Saiyan armor]]. When Woods isn't wrestling, he also has his super-successful YouTube [[WebVideo/UpUpDownDown gaming channel]], where many of his wrestling co-workers appear.

** Arguably, Carlton is more of a preppy than a nerd since he has no interest in science or technical fields and never displayed any stereotypical nerdy interests. His character revolved more around just being the WhitestBlackGuy due to his relatively conservative leanings (voting Republican, upper class, Ivy League culture).

* ''The Atlantic'''s senior editor and blogger [[http://www.theatlantic.com/ta-nehisi-coates Ta-Nehisi Coates.]] Aside from his more obvious American history and music nerdom, he's a huge fan of comic books and plays ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. According to his memoir ''The Beautiful Struggle'', he was also a bit of a CloudCuckoolander as a kid.

* [[WhoseLineIsItAnyway Wayne Brady]] has stated that in order to be a good improv actor, you ''need'' to be a nerd. He's dropped many an obscure reference to prove his point.
