* Neptune Vasilias from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is an odd inversion. He initially comes off as a cool lady's man, but he's implied to be afraid of heights, [[ICantDance can't dance]], and is an [[{{Bookworm}} intellectual]]. According to Episode 7 of Volume 2, he [[InvokedTrope actively works at constantly being seen as cool]] to make up for his failings.

* Jameson (or Jamison) Winger, in the World Wrestling Federation, who was originally a nerdy, socially-challenged Ed [=McMahon=]-style sidekick for the short-lived "Bobby Heenan Show" segment of "WWF Prime Time Wrestling". He later became a recurring character (in the same mold) on WWF television, and even served as a sidekick for the Bushwhackers tag team. Bears a striking resemblance to Andy Kindler (of "EverybodyLovesRaymond" fame), although Kindler swears it was not him, and has even gone as far as to claim it was ''another'' Andy Kindler. Which is strange, because Jameson was portrayed by an actor named John [=DiGiacomo=].

* Carlton Banks from ''Series/FreshPrinceOfBelAir'' mostly qualifies for this, but he does get his chances from time to time. His short stature does not really help much.

* Irwin "Skippy" Handelman in ''Series/FamilyTies''. Unusual in that Skippy was even less intelligent than [[TheDitz Mallory Keaton]]. Alex P. Keaton, on the other hand, is portrayed as more that of the HollywoodNerd.

* Milton in ''Series/KickinIt'' reaches an interesting point in terms of the HollywoodDressCode. [[WordOfGod Dylan Riley Snyder]] specifically mentioned that Milton'll unbutton his top shirt button more often in season 3 just as OneDirection's made the buttoned-up look trendy.

* Farkle Minkus in Series/GirlMeetsWorld, although he has a BSOD when a bully shoves his nerdness in his face.
