* Yorick being attracted to girls with obscure interests is a bit of a RunningGag in ''Comicbook/YTheLastMan''. A shining example is when he, upon learning that that a woman named her boat after the ship in ''[[KurtVonnegut Sirens of Titan]]'', [[EngagingConversation instantly proposed to her]]. Yorick's sister Hero {{lampshade}}s this when Beth (not that Beth, the other one) starts rattling off side notes about the Swiss Guards that kidnapped them both in the name of the Catholic Church.

* In ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', Fëanor's wife Nerdanel. Considered 'not the fairest among her people', the Noldor widely wondered what the canonically gorgeous king's son and prodigious [[RenaissanceMan polymath]] wanted with her, but Nerdanel became widely renowned for her wisdom, being the only one who could 'restrain Fëanor' in the beginning. She also was a skilled sculptress, whose more abstract works escaped comprehension. Both of these things perhaps comprise an acceptable example of elven geekdom.
