* Hinata Hyuuga in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is partly defined by her [[ShrinkingViolet shyness]], partly defined by her [[NiceGirl kind, gentle personality]], and partly defined by her love for the titular character [[spoiler:who eventually loves her back]]. However the trope itself is {{subverted|Trope}}, because Hinata is completely aware of Naruto's shortcomings, and yet she admires him exactly because he has the determination and self-confidence to change them.
** Supporters of Hinata can also be considered under this trope, given that she is one of the series' ''biggest'' [[EnsembleDarkhorse Ensemble Darkhorses]].
** Ironically, Naruto is a fan of Rock Lee for being an underdog like him, as well.

[[folder: Real Life ]]

* A general RealLife example in regards to sports. It's not too uncommon a notion that one will, given that their local/favorite team isn't doing well in most situations, cheer for whoever is the comparative underdog. Especially true in professional-level playoffs and collegiate-level rankings.

* Hinata Hyuuga in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is pretty much defined by her deep-seated crush on the titular character [[spoiler: who eventually loves her back]]. However the trope itself is subverted, because Hinata is completely aware of Naruto's short comings, and she admires him exactly because he has the determination and self-confidence to change them.
** Supporters of Hinata can also be considered under this trope.

* On ''TotalDrama,'' Sam keeps switching between support for [[spoiler:Cameron]] and [[spoiler:Lightning]] during the season four finale, since "they keep trading underdog status! It's confusing."

* ''ComicStrip/Peanuts'' has Charlie Brown's devoted love for Joe Shlabotnik, a baseball player who keeps getting bumped from the major to minor leagues before finally retiring (and working at a car wash). Naturally, his continual attempts to get Shlabotnik merchandise--let alone meet the man in person--[[FailureIsTheOnlyOption are about as successful as Shlabotnik's career]].
