** Morgan. After Chuck must devote more of his life to the spy game, it's Morgan who keeps the Buy More running smoothly, first as assistant manager then as manager. He has the very cute Anna Wu as a girlfriend for most of seasons 1 and 2, then even manages to bag ''[[FemmeFatale Carina]]'' by the third season, to the point she's infatuated with him in season four. He also develops a solid romantic relationship with ''Casey's'' quite beautiful daughter Alex, has BoDerek gunning for him in season 5 (though it's largely because [[spoiler: he has the Intersect]] and is a respected member of Team Bartowski. You wouldn't ''think'' it because of the way his coworkers talk down to him or outright revolt against his authority as assistant manager/manager.

* All of Team Kimba (the protagonists) in the WhateleyUniverse, even though the group contains some of the hottest girls([[GenderBender -ish]]) on the entire campus. One of them is regarded as possibly the hottest girl on the ''planet'' (she's part Sidhe and has a Faerie glamour). They live in the dorm that's regarded as the campus loonybin (it's not). Before their mutant manifestations, many of them were 'losers' for one reason or another. Part of their isolation is that they seem to live up to the dorm's reputation, particularly Generator and Shroud. Tennyo has the stigma of being a Section 33 (fighting her is an automatic expulsion for anyone involved), so people are afraid of her. The group as a whole attacked the Alphas (who are supposed to be the best, most popular kids on campus)for no apparent reason early in their first term, and they're the only non-Hawthorne students who actually enjoy going over to Hawthorne to visit the students there.

* ''Series/{{Popular}}'': Samantha. Despite being gorgeous and smart, she was unpopular. A snarky recapper on TelevisionWithoutPity actually pointed out that for all her supposed outsiderness Sam generally had more stylized hairstyles and make up than the actually popular Brooke, who looked like she just ran a comb through her hair every morning.

* Kazuya Jonouchi (Joey Wheeler) after his HeelFaceTurn in ''Anime/YuGiOh''. He's fairly attractive, friendly, and a pretty badass duelist, and yet is constantly the target of bullying and [[ButtMonkey mean-spirited jokes]] from [[BadassNormal professional duelists and arc enemies]], [[TheRival Kaiba]], and even (until ''his'' HeelFaceTurn) [[EvilPowerVacuum Honda]] (Tristan Taylor).

* ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide''. Ned and Moze. Averted with their friend Cookie who is an ExtravertedNerd.

to:

* ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide''. ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'':
**
Ned is cute, clever, friendly, open towards everyone and Moze. gives great tips, but he isn't very popular.
** Moze played with the trope. Even if she has the looks, the personality, great grades, and is the ace of several school teams, she is not part of the popular crowd. In early episodes she struggles to make female friends, and mainly hangs out with Ned, Cookie or other not-so-cool kids. However, she's much more popular than she realizes; in the episode "Popularity" she finds out that she is in the Top 10 of a popularity list on the school's website, but she eventually finds the other "cool" students annoying and prefers hanging out with her old friends.

* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'': Completely parodied in an episode wherein Jerry dates a girl who seems to be perfect (smart, attractive, funny, friendly) but is ostracized by her own friends. Later, even Kramer and George sit Jerry down to tell him he can do better (heavily implying there is something very wrong with this girl), despite her obvious positive and desirable attributes. Everyone but Jerry seems able to tell this girl is a super loser in some way (which they never clarify), so he puts her to the ultimate test, meeting his parents. They ''love'' her and he immediately begins to think poorly of her as a result. What exactly people were seeing wrong with her is never explained.
