* In ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'', Ralph Dibny recounts how he and his wife Sue met. He and TheFlash had shown up at some fancy event and saved everyone there. A-lister Flash had nearly everyone's attention -- everyone except Sue, who was immediately interested in B-lister Ralph. Ralph claims that's one of the reasons Sue is so special -- despite being surrounded by superheroes with heroic builds and chiseled good looks, she's never had eyes for anyone but Ralph.

* In ''FireEmblem,'' if you choose to have them support each other, Rebecca the Archer becomes this towards Lowen the Cavalier; she embellishes his 'daring rescue' of her village knowing full well that she's doing so, simply because she prefers to remember it that way.

* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'': Fans of [[LesserStar Luigi]] have shown up on more than one occasion.
** In ''VideoGame/PaperMario64'', one of Koopa Koot's requests is for Luigi's autograph.
** In ''VideoGame/SuperMario64DS'', one Toad in the basement is a huge fan of Luigi. He has a [[PlotCoupon Power Star]] that he won't give it up unless you talk to him as Luigi.
** In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', one trouble you can take on is a request by a member of the Luigi Fan Club, specifically to see Luigi in person.

* 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.
