** Purah in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is a short, glasses- and goggles-wearing nerd who [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld looks 6 but is actually more than 120]] due to a FountainOfYouth experiment that went wrong and who is an expert on the Sheikah Slate and other ancient {{Magitek}}. In a deviation from the stereotype, however, she has an energetic and flashy personality.

* ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial 1'': Mio Kisaragi, a cute and [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] {{Meganekko}} who ''loves'' reading books (to the point of reading four of them per day), thus she spends a lot of her time at libraries, and she often helps at Kirameki High's one. It's also her who finds the Soccer Manual that'll help the protagonist improve his striker skills, during the storyline of the side game ''Nijiiro no Seishun''.

* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'': Velma, most notably on ''A Pup Named Scooby Doo.'' As a teen she's classified as "{{Hollywood Ugly}}" (she's not gorgeous but she's not ugly, either) and quite studious. In ''Pup,'' Velma is [[{{Adorkable}} sweet and quiet-spoken as well as smart.]] This is lampshaded in a flashback scene of a ''What's New, Scooby Doo?'' episode where a birthday clown destroys her prized gift of encyclopedias and she runs off crying.
