* The ''[[AlternateCompanyEquivalent other company's]]'' Captain Marvel, or at least, their current one, former ComicBook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers. Credited as 'Earth's Mightiest Hero', a FlyingBrick on-par with Thor, a trained Air-Force pilot and a decorated soldier with years of experience, and she named her cat Chewie, uses the 'Jedi Mind Trick' as a distraction, and after cooling off from being mad at the uninvited visit, she geeks out at having Lila Cheney, a super-powered rock star, on her ship. Generally, Carol is good at keeping her geekiness in-check, but in recent years it's became far more blatant that she's something of a nerd.
* And the other [[Comicbook/MsMarvel2014 Ms. Marvel]], the ever-{{adorkable}} shapeshifter and superhero fangirl, Kamala Khan.

Added DiffLines:

* This trope is exemplified by Isaac Vanko from ''Literature/MagicExLibris'' who often takes time from running for his life or fighting to geek out over whatever is trying to kill him.
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' has short stories showing how Harry Dresden looks from the outside, like a flaky spaz when investigating a crime scene, and in battle a terrifying demigod who wields fire and lightning "like they were toys created for his own use."

* Steve Rogers in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''. Brave, determined, the film's MrFanservice, and a bona fide SuperSoldier. Also humble, a terrible liar, awkward about romance, and really kind and {{adorkable}}.
* S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson counts, too. A PromotedFanboy of Captain America (complete with a set of vintage trading cards!), he's like a dorky math teacher in a nice suit. However, he ''is'' a S.H.I.E.L.D agent (and Nick Fury's NumberTwo), who is completely unflappable facing down any number of threats ranging from H.Y.D.R.A terrorists to alien invaders. One of his {{Establishing Character Moment}}s was casually threatening Tony Stark with being tazed, and then watching ''Supernanny'' while Stark "drooled into the carpet."
* Also, ''Film/{{Thor}}''; complete and utter naive ''dork'' with a big, goofy grin on his face when there isn't any danger about. Much of it comes from having little clue about Midguard customs and being as excited and happy to learn as a Golden Retriever let loose in a dog park.

** The MCU's version of [[Film/SpiderManHomecoming Peter Parker]]. He's played by a younger actor than other cinematic versions of the character, and his personality has less angst and more youthful energy and fanboyish enthusiasm.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'': both [[TheLeader Leonardo]] (to the point he models himself after a Captain Kirk knockoff) and [[TheSmartGuy Donatello]] (even more when his crush, April, is present). Add an all-out goofball in Michelangelo, and is easy to see why the overtly serious\angry Raphael feels a little out of place.

* Described by the page quote is the Link in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''; he may be brave, kind, and heroic, but he's still a huge dork of a KidHero with especially cartooney facial expressions, even for the art style. Similary, the Link in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' is a good example as well, being a somewhat klutzy Sleepyhead, especially around Zelda; both of them have slayed monsters, saved the world, shown unbelievable amounts of determination stronger than titanium, and are overall very capable at what they do.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Link started off in the backstory as very stoic and serious, but he's loosened up considerably by the time you get to control him. He often makes cheesy puns in dialogue, he hums excitedly while cooking food, and should you choose to sleep on the waterbed in Zora's Domain, Link can be heard bouncing on the bed and giggling like a little kid.

* ''Film/WonderWoman2017'': Diana is a fierce and brave warrior, but also a truthful, sincere, kind and honest girl who positively [[CutenessProximity squees]] at the sight of a baby. Unfortunately, she loses this trait after [[TookALevelInCynic seeing the worst of mankind ]] during World War I.

* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'': Adrien Agreste. He’s a studious, kind-hearted, [[{{BadassAdorable}} sweet]] [[{{TheAce}} Ace]] who genuinely cares about others and ''literally'' JumpedAtTheCall. He’s also a [[{{Adorkable}} dorky]], [[{{PungeonMaster}} punny]] superhero [[{{CatGirl}} Cat Noir]]. Adrien, despite being polite and pretty friendly, started the series as a [[{{Homeschooled Kid|s}} homeschooled kid]] who had [[{{SociallyAwkwardHero}} difficulty relating]] to his peers. He got better after CharacterDevelopment kicked in.

** Arguably, Marinette Dupain-Cheng, too, though her case is downplayed. She’s the Protagonist to Adrien’s Deuteragonist, and a compassionate, [[{{NiceGuy}} genuinely nice]] GirlyBruiser, who likes [[{{TheFashionista}} fashion]], and [[{{GamerChick}} trumps people at video games]] left and right. And as Ladybug she stands for [[ComesGreatResponsibility responsibility]] and [[ForGreatJustice justice]] alongside Cat Noir. Despite all that, she gets pretty flustered and even more clumsy than usual around her crush, Adrien, alternating between CannotSpitItOut and a hilarious case of MotorMouth.
