Compare HollywoodNerd. Occasionally coupled with a NerdyInhaler to try and [[JustifiedTrope justify]] it. {{Badass Bookworm}}s often, but don't always, avert this. May overlap with FatAndSkinny.

* Matt from ''Manga/DeathNote''. For someone who spends most of his time sitting around [[VideoGameCulture playing video games]] and appears to have a taste for junk food, he does have [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/deathnote/images/c/c1/35.png/revision/latest?cb=20110507203616 nice biceps]]!

* Steve Urkel in ''FamilyMatters''.
* Jerry Steiner of ''ParkerLewisCantLose''.
* Lucas on ''PrettyLittleLiars'', a photography nerd. Plus points to the writers who actually made him look threatening and scary at one point. Then Hanna smacked him with a boat oar and knocked him into a pond.

* Literature/TheCanterburyTales has the clerk, making this trope OlderThanPrint. The clerk is described as a student of philosophy or theology at Oxford, who is wire-thin because he forgets to eat and would rather spend what little money he scrounges together on Aristotle works than food or clothing.

* ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' is fundamentally a series about gaming nerds, and the style gives basically everyone elongated proportions. Dark Yugi, Kaiba, and Bakura (both versions) are all particularly skinny and nerdy.

** The Fourth Doctor usually just looked like a big bulky pile of clothes, but as Creator/TomBaker was a starving actor before he started on the show, he was pretty lanky underneath all the layers.

* At first glance, [[{{Otaku}} Hajime]] from ''Manga/ICan'tUnderstandWhatMyHusbandIsSaying'' appears to be a skinny example. [[ShirtlessScene Then he took off his shirt in episode 7]]. It's explicitly noted in the manga that he does exercises to keep himself fit, particularly the abdominal region.

* Daniel Jackson on ''Series/StargateSG1'' is given as much action as any of the other members of the team. While they try to hide MichaelShanks actual physique, it's never implied that he's physically less able than the other members - sporting heavier weapons in later seasons as he becomes a more experienced combatant.

Of course, he ''is'' an archaeologist by profession and presumably did a certain amount of field-work, which can be pretty physical.
