* ''Series/CriminalMinds'' has Aaron Hotchner, although you wouldn't necessarily know it if you met him on the job due to his [[TheStoic stoic nature]] and PerpetualFrowner glare. But get him at home with his young son or in a social situation with his team, and you'll realise that he has quite the {{adorkable}} side hidden underneath his [[TheComicallySerious Comically Serious]] demeanour.

->''"Link is dripping with visual personality, entirely distinct from the player's actions. He's profoundly thick, almost to the edge of the special-school spectrum, but he's earnest and endearing with it. He doesn't put on the [[IconicOutfit green uniform]] because he was destined to by the will of The Force, or whatever it is, but because his Nan was forcing him to take part in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' cosplay."''

* [[TheHero Roy]] from ''Franchise/FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe The Sealed Sword]]'' is a brave and skilled swordsman, and a very charismatic leader and highly intelligent TeenGenius GuileHero to boot, but he definitely has his awkward teenager moments; especially in his supports with any of his potential wives. His father Eliwood from the prequel game can fall into this sometimes, too, but to a lesser degree.

** Keith is TheAce, Kotetsu aspires to be TheCape, Ivan can manage a bit of {{Badass}} and is definitely Adorable, and all three are {{Adorkable}}.

* Commander Jeffrey Sinclair, commanding officer of Series/{{Babylon 5}}. {{Badass}} RulesLawyer AcePilot who is, in fact, a complete and utter ''dork''. His successor, John Sheridan, was no better. If you piss Sheridan off, he ''will'' nuke your ass. But he'll go from nuke-slinging badass to rushing over to his second in command's room in the middle of the night because he had a great idea, and being ''completely'' oblivious to her being dressed in nothing but a flimsy nightgown. ({{Justified}} somewhat because they are LikeBrotherAndSister).

* Applies to the Avatar aka [[CanonName Corrin]], of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. An unstoppable, {{Badass}} {{Determinator}} on the battlefield, but a cheerful, socially inept ''[[{{Adorkable}} dork]]'' off of it.
* John in ''VideoGame/ImmortalSouls'' looks and fights the part of a {{badass}} NinetiesAntiHero, but he's really a softie who is a bit naive and cares about saving innocents and doing the right thing, though [[HeroicNeutral you do have to initially push him into it]]. He also gets absolutely tongue-tied talking to his LoveInterest [[TheIngenue Allison]] and whenever [[VillainousCrush the Black Witch]] tries flirting with him. Or when talking about Allison. Or when ''thinking'' about Allison.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Everyone. Sokka in particular stands out, and once [[HeelFaceTurn Zuko]] gets better, he winds up with some of this too.

* ''Series/TheLoneGunmen'': All of the gents qualify to some degree or another. They certainly ''are'' dorks, and they're completely uncorruptable underground hackers and journalists operating with the motive that InformationWantsToBeFree. However, Byers and Jimmy Bond fit the mold best. Byers is a soft-spoken gentleman who used to be a loyal worker for the FCC and still believes that America can one day live up to the {{Eagleland}} Type One. The other two derided him as a "narc" until he stared down armed members of the Conspiracy and chewed them out, demanding to know who the hell they were and what gave them the right to pull these stunts. Jimmy Bond, their last recruit, is a BookDumb puppy dog of a man who is TooDumbToFool, but gifted with a surprising amount of compassion and intuition that makes him see things that the otherwise intellectual Gunmen are apt to miss.

* 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 {{EstablishingCharqacterMoment}}s was casually threatening Tony Stark with being tazed, and then watching ''Supernanny'' while Stark "drooled into the carpet."
