* "Girl Next Door" by Brandy Clark:
-->If you want the girl next door\\
Some Virgin Mary metaphor\\
Your cardboard cutout on the wall\\
Your paper or your Barbie doll\\
With perfect hair and a perfect dress\\
I'm really just the perfect mess\\
And I ain't nothing less or nothing more\\
So, baby, if you want the girl next door\\
Then go next door

The SpearCounterpart, Boy Next Door, is pretty much the same only, you know, male. Often overlaps with OneOfTheBoys. Contrast with HelloNurse and PeerlessLoveInterest. Also compare TheAllAmericanBoy, who might well be her {{High School Sweetheart|s}}.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' had Link's best friend, Saria, who was the most popular girl in Kokiri Village. Though her looks are best described as childlike, since the Kokiri don't age beyond their early adolescent years. Which is why she physically resembles a 13-14 year old girl, despite [[VagueAge possibly being much older.]]

* ''FireEmblem'' gets a few, though they can be ''[[FanDumb HEAVILY]]'' disputed. Counting by appearance, there's [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Caeda/Sheeda]], [[TokenMiniMoe Lilina]], and Tana. Note that all three of these girls are ''[[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses royalty]]'' (more or less; Lycia's not a monarchy but Lilina's father is nevertheless the head of a country). Then again, the same is true of their love interests, so it's all relative.

** Refia from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII.'' Pretty, but not sexy? Check. Features that make her plain? Check. Endearing adorable somehow? Double Check.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Tifa was originally [[AvertedTrope an aversion]], as her in-game cg character model had GagBoobs, [[RapunzelHair long dolphin-shaped hair]], a [[DangerouslyShortSkirt skin-tight leather miniskirt]], and [[ShesGotLegs legs like you wouldn't believe.]] Creator/SquareEnix redesigned her appearance for ''[[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]]'', by shortening her hair to about shoulder-length, reducing her bust size, and gave her a more realistically proportioned figure along with a much more conservative outfit. Which was done because Nomura wanted her to have the look of a modern working-class woman. In short: [[TropesAreTools he deliberately invoked the trope]] by making her seem more approachable.

* Played with in regard to Gwen Stacy of SpiderMan. As portrayed in the comics, Gwen was more of an exotic flower whom Peter only met after he left Forest Hill and "went out into the world", i.e. Manhattan and college. She came from an upper-class background, her first boyfriend, Harry, was the son of a millionaire and in her first appearance she was introduced as a high-school beauty queen. However, as she became the Betty to Mary Jane's Veronica, she moved into this category. MJ herself became literally this Trope in the Ultimate universe, having lived next door to the Parkers since she was a little girl and, before their RelationshipUpgrade, was the geeky best friend of an equally-as-geeky Peter.
* Shellie from SinCity is sassy but meek enough to qualify.

* ''HesJustNotThatIntoYou'' has three: Gigi Phillips is like a basset hound. They're kinda pathetic - so you want to cheer them up. Beth Murphy wants a good man and a husband. Mary is a romantic who has been hiding behind technology.
