Xander's interactions with Andrew Wells.



* Cisco Ramon, the GadgeteerGenius from ''Series/TheFlash2014'' had no friends in high school as he was apparently such a nerd that 'even the nerds hated [him]'. It's no wonder that he was so happy to get a job working for Harrison Wells at STAR Labs, since he was finally in an environment where nerdiness and genius was actually celebrated.
* In the "Invertebrates" episode of ''Series/{{QI}}'', this was the reaction to the teams learning about the Worm-Charming Festival (which failed to charm any worms):

* ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'':
** During the summer camp arc, Eugene Wu was the first nerd that Jason and Marcus couldn't stand. This was less because of his interests and more because of his InsufferableGenius behavior.
** Jason once tried to pull this on Eileen when she was cosplaying for a ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' film, but that was just HypocriticalHumor since he thought his cosplaying for a ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' film made him cooler. They apparently compromised on the issue since later strips would show them attending movies in cosplay together.



* ''BackyardSports''' [[TheSmartGuy Dmitri]], a nerd who loves statistics, thinks Reese, who is a nerd who plays ''way too many'' video games and collects ''way too many'' stamps and action figures, is ''way too nerdy''.
