* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

** Then there's Charlie (played by FeliciaDay), who [[{{Adorkable}} isn't made out to be unattractive]], though she is a fan of [[GeekReferencePool every geeky thing the writers can think of]] and is also a PlayfulHacker.

** Most of the core cast of the show were supposed to be nerds and outcasts, but they were all sexy - most notably Willow, who was played by nerd goddess AlysonHannigan (and her whippet-thin body) for the series. When Jonathan, a more "normal"-looking nerd, was introduced, he was rejected for friendship by Buffy for being too short. Thus, he never made it into the core cast.

* Dr Harrison Wells in ''Series/TheFlash'', as played by Tom Cavanagh, is an extremely handsome man even with NerdGlasses and all-black clothes that hide his athlete's physique. However, he goes the entire first season with his looks never once being acknowledged by any of the other characters due to a combination of being confined to a wheelchair, being the resident genius science nerd, a complete lack of a social life outside of STAR Labs, and fulfilling the ParentalSubstitute role to most of the main cast.
