** Lloyd is an example of the skinny type as well.
** The two students credited as "otaku" - the racist ones seen in episodes 5, 6, and 18 - are an example of a pair of both types.

* Series/{{Sherlock}}, like his [[Literature/SherlockHolmes literary counterpart]], is ridiculously skinny and claims not to eat on cases - the number of times he is shown eating in six episodes could be counted on one hand. Prior to filming, Creator/{{Benedict Cumberbatch}} had another role as a cancer patient, but didn't want to shave his head because he was growing out his hair for ''Sherlock''. He opted to lose 15 lbs. instead, giving his character an emaciated appearance, then kept the weight loss for ''Sherlock'' because he wanted the impression of "mind over body."

* Fitz, from the ''Series/DoctorWho'' Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures novels, who is described as looking like he's [[NoodlePeople made of pipecleaners]]. He's quite into SpeculativeFiction, particularly ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', and once dubbed a sea monster "{{Cthulhu}}", although his characterization generally isn't overtly geeky.

* Justin from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' works at a comic shop, and has pretty much the personality you would expect considering his workplace, but since he's been doing martial arts for years he's actually in shape. Catalina's remark upon seeing him is [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2010-04-16 "Holy crap! Aren't comic book guys supposed to be grapefruit shaped?"]] like the nameless extras in the last panel.

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.
