*** Averted by Dr. Charles Xavier, who is stunningly attractive... and is aware of it. In fact, in his first scene as a grown man, he is seen using nerd-talk to pick up coeds at an Oxford pub.

* Lampshaded by one female comic, who explained that when women say they're "into nerdy guys," what they mean is they're "into male models who wear glasses and don't have nerdy interests."

* ''Film/WereTheMillers'': Take the gorgeous Molly Quinn, put her in a [[LordOfTheRings "What Would Frodo Do?"]] T-shirt, and presto! Instant love interest for Kenny. This is TruthInTelevision in this case: [[OneOfUs/TVDweebs Quinn really is a huge geek]].

* ComicBook/KittyPryde of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}} used to be one. She was a skinny little computer nerd who was jealous of the older X-Women's looks and even needed glasses at one point, though she still had her share of admirers. Moreso in real life than the comics, in fact: so many of today's comic book creators [[RunningTheAsylum grew up]] with a huge crush on Kitty that nowadays she's generally just accepted to be an extremely attractive woman who's also really smart.

** Clark Kent, the future Superman, and of course, the nerdy everyman who kept his virginity until he was out of high school, and folded into an awkward mess when a hot cheerleader was throwing herself at him. And he's played by an underwear model. Yeah... It's not so much that Clark's a nerd per se, in fact he's shown to be baffled by real-nerd behavior, he's just socially awkward due to having to keep the secret that he's got super powers and is an alien.

* Ruby of ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' is a slightly unusual nerd, lacking any ''geeky'' features, but is still essentially a nerd; she privileges mental over physical or social skills, and she has no great interest in being sexually appealing. And yet, she's slim, with a good figure, and is described as a graceful mover; amongst other things, when she puts on a pair of designer jeans, she automatically attracts the attention of every passing straight man.

* Ruby of ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' is a slightly unusual nerd, lacking nerd. She initially lacks any ''geeky'' features, but is until she develops an interest in manga and anime (specifically {{Yaoi}}), at which point she shows a talent for detailed study of technicalities. However, she’s still essentially a nerd; she privileges mental over physical or social skills, and she has no great interest in being sexually appealing. And yet, she's slim, with a good figure, and is described as a graceful mover; amongst other things, when she puts on a pair of designer jeans, she automatically attracts the attention of every passing straight man.

* ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'': Before his transformation, the movie does its best to make Jamie Foxx (Max Dillon / Electro) look like an unattractive nerd by giving him a combover, glasses and fake bad teeth.
