* ''Anime/VariableGeo'': We never get to see how it starts, but there's no mistaking that [[TheOjou Reimi]] [[LadyOfWar Jahana]] is secretly making time with [[RighthandHottie her personal assistant]], [[HollywoodNerd Washio.]] As seen during Chiho's escape attempt from the Jahana Building, where she stumbles across Reimi's private rooftop rose garden and [[InterruptedIntimacy finds them making out with each each other.]]

* Author [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/4030350/Rufus-T-Serenity Rufus T. Serenity]] is certainly a fan of this trope. Many of his ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' fanfics feature the geekier contestants (Cody, Harold, Cameron, etc) hooking up with girls girls that they far out of their league like Lindsay, Heather, Bridgette and so on.

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'': IntrepidReporter [[BrainyBrunette Roxanne]] [[WhenSheSmiles Richie's]] camera guy Hal is introduced as a painfully awkward nerd who is completely in love with her, but she just sees him as a workmate. Later, [[spoiler:after he gets superpowers]] and makes his move, he's revealed to be an EntitledToHaveYou [[spoiler: [[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic]]]] ManChild who doesn't take rejection well. [[DeconstructedTrope What?]] Just because he's a nerd and likes her doesn't automatically make him [[spoiler:a good person]] or secretly the man of her dreams. [[spoiler: Interestingly, Roxanne eventually falls for Megamind, who's quite the "dweebie intellectual" himself.]]

* The trope is played with slightly cynically in later ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' strips, as hopeless geek Gary is frequently pursued by various members of the comic's stunningly attractive female cast (plus at least one gay guy and one {{transsexual}}). However, not many of them like him ''for'' his geekiness; their reasons include his blushing, bumbling cuteness, his supposedly glamorous status as a (wannabe) artist, and his fabled skill at cunnilingus. Ziiís attraction to him fits the trope mor3 closely, but she fights it furiously.

Although this was a subversion, as Johnny revealed himself to be BeautifulAllAlong and his [[ToiletHumor bouts of diarrhea]] immediately stopped.

Alas, poor Otacon, he could [[DidNotGetTheGirl never get a girl alive]].]]

** [[TheLeader Will]] herself could count as the "geek" with her relationship with Matt Olsen who's a budding rock star that is shown to be a ChickMagnet to the extent that Will... [[ClingyJealousGirl doesn't appreciate that aspect of him]]. Will is not a typical nerd as she's BookDumb or at least [[EverybodyHatesMathematics hates math]], though she does have an obsession with frogs going by her possessions and in one of the cartoon's openings she's implied to be a fan of ''Franchise/{{TheMuppets}}'' and ''Pokémon''. And yet Matt has only ever shown interest in her, even with attractive girls making passes at him. Taranee and Hay Lin are geeky in their own way, being examples of NerdsAreSexy and a OtakuSurrogate respectively, again have no trouble attracting boys. And it's not just a Guardian thing, either, as Will's own mother dates her history teacher who is a good-looking NiceGuy that is still a total history geek and a contrast to her much smoother ex-husband, though Will's father's failings may be the reason she's looking for [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan someone different and more reliable]].
