* One of the major elements of ''Manga/HimoutoUmaruChan'' is that Umaru is the image of refined perfection in public, but is really an anime-loving GamerGirl in her private life (in addition to being a [[PrettyFreeloaders lazy slob]]. She does her best to ensure that none of her friends find out, and has actually invented two separate [[SecretIdentity Secret Identities]] to cover up: when hanging out with Kirie she pretends to be her own younger sister "Komaru", and with Sylphinford she dons a DominoMask and goes by "UMR-san".

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' has an unexpected example in Captain Picard, diplomat, badass, and [[TheStoic very serious man]], who much to his officers' amusement had a huge geek-out over the realism of the [[FilmNoir "Dixon Hill"]] holodeck program. Picard also gets really excited about archaeology, and on the away team exploring an old ship he behaved like a child in a chocolate factory.

Picard also gets really excited about archaeology, and on the away team exploring an old ship he behaved like a child in a chocolate factory. He's also pretty geeky about Shakespeare to the point where he keeps a treasured ''Complete Works of Shakepeare'' in his ready room, usually protected under glass the same way an action figure collector might display his treasures.


Added DiffLines:

* Clara Oswald from ''Series/DoctorWho'' doesn't really come off as the geek type. Until the Doctor agrees to take her to meet Robin Hood (and she decides to go into full-out cosplay mode), and she totally geeks out about Jane Austen to the point of claiming to know more about her than the Doctor, and this is turned UpToEleven after an OffScreenMomentOfAwesome where she not only met Jane, but apparently ''snogged her'', a fact that she can't resist boasting about to her students.

* ''NogizakaHarukaNoHimitsu'' has Nogizaka Haruka. It's her secret, [[JustifiedTrope and rightfully so]]. Society in general looks down on {{Otaku}} as [[DoubleStandard nothing more than disgusting and perverted freaks]]; and coming from a rich family, she has [[TheAce a certain image]] to maintain. She even got a HeroicBSOD back in elementary school over being discovered and ridiculed for being one of these. [[FromBadToWorse Worse]], her strict OverprotectiveDad doesn't approve of this hobby either.

* As an ActorAllusion of above, in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'', Raven, voiced by [[TaraStrong the one voicing Twilight Sparkle]], turns out to be a closet fan of ''[[MyLittlePhony Pretty Pretty Pegasus]]''. After spending the duration of an episode trying to hide it, it turns out the other Titans (or at least Robin) are ''un''-closeted fans of the show.

* Undyne in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is head of the royal guard and she is as tough as she looks. She also has a secret hobby she likes getting into, but you won't know about it unless you spared and befriended her. [[spoiler: Turns out that she is a massive geek when it comes to anime due to reading about them in human history and she'll even ask you if anime is real.]]
