* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'': Played with in that Alex seems to deliberately seek out this status. In fact, it seems to be a staple of DisneyChannel [[MadeForTVMovie original movies]], glaringly so in ''Alley Cats Strike'', wherein the otherwise cool captain of the school bowling club is regarded as some sort of misfit outcast (that is, until the movie's main events kick into gear).

* CyranoDeBergerac: Even when this play is not settled in High School, the Gascons are the {{Cool Loser}}s that de Guiche, the JerkJock, is trying to pick on with help of his GirlPosse, De Valvert. The Gascons are all proud of being [[ImpoverishedPatrician losers]] and of being cool.

** Chuck Bartowski of would definitely fall under this trope. He's a good-looking, smart, funny, and kind-hearted guy who Casey even describes as a "social butterfly" in one episode, he's definitely one of the most socially-functional main characters. Yet he doesn't believe a woman like Sarah would genuinely be attracted to him. Of course it doesn't help that Chuck is frequently OvershadowedByAwesome--no really, that's what they actually call his sister's boyfriend Devon--and ''professional'' spies like Bryce, Cole and Shaw.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': In a moment of self-deprecation, Quicksilver calls himself a "total loser," and the rest of the X-Men chuckle with him (and not ''at'' him). They barely know Peter, but they are already beginning to like him.

* ''Series/TeenWolf'': Scott and Stiles are both introduced as nerdy social outcasts who have [[{{OnlyFriend}} no friends apart from each other]] and are picked on mercilessly by the school's JerkJock. Although they ''are'' rather dorky and awkward, it doesn't cancel out the fact they're both fairly good-looking and nice guys, Scott is one of the sweetest, kindest characters on the show and Stiles is very witty and intelligent. Somewhat justified as they may have had more acquaintances before the show started, but got distracted by the werewolf mess and only hung out with people who knew the truth. (Which was only the two of them to begin with). The pair also had difficult childhoods before the show began - with Scott's dad walking out and Stiles's mum passing away - which might have isolated them.

* The ''EerieIndiana'' books attempt to justify this: the charming but unpopular town bum, liked only by the main characters, used to be the mayor before he [[{{Curse}} irritated a witch]].
