* Penny from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. She moves into the apartment across the hall in the first episode and that alone gave Leonard some hope that she might become interested in him. She is consistently portrayed as a fairly down-to-earth and friendly girl who helps fill in the gaps in the guys' social skills. Still, as she and Leonard start dating, it's made fairly clear that if they weren't neighbors he wouldn't have had much of a shot with her.

* ''Franchise/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.
* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', if Chrom doesn't have enough supports or love points with any of his prospect girlfriends before [[spoiler: Chapter 11]], he's slated to marry [[spoiler: and have Lucina with]] a girl from an Ylissean village, [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep only known as]] [[NoNameGiven the Village Maiden]]. In her first and only appearance, she fits in here to a T: she's sweet, soft-spoken, and she and Chrom seem to be pretty HappilyMarried.

Girls of this nature will often appear in {{Harem|Genre}}s, usually as the inevitably {{unlucky childhood friend}} of the protagonist, or as said above, the "Betty" in a LoveTriangle. In non-romantic stories, she'll either be [[BestFriend 'besties']] with one of the others, or she may be the CoolBigSis.
