* Needy in ''Film/JennifersBody'' may have giant nerd glasses and unflattering clothes but she is still played by the beautiful Creator/AmandaSeyfried. In fairness the film does note that Needy is plenty attractive but dresses down to not upstage her [[AlphaBitch best]] [[MeganFox friend]] and she has little trouble with boys, having a steady boyfriend and another male character with an obvious crush on her.

* ''Series/ModernFamily'': Alex Dunphy. It's a little difficult to believe any of Haley's comments about her having issues with boys when she's played by [[https://www.google.com/search?q=Ariel+Winter&newwindow=1&sa=X&rlz=1C2LDJZ_enUS507US523&biw=1919&bih=950&stick=H4sIAAAAAAAAAONgFuLUz9U3SMsurypW4gIxTQxMyguTtMSyk630S8qAKL6gKD-9KDHXKjmxuAQAR6ukqjEAAAA&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&ved=0ahUKEwjaiKqKysbLAhULnIMKHdmEDm4QiR4I3QE Ariel Winter]].[[note]](Outside her acting work, people only know her for her large breats. She didn't cope too well with that.)[[/note]]

** 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... Its 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.

* Shad from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''. Dresses like a dork (argyle socks? bow tie wider then a mile? implausibly high collar? and don't ask about the creepy buttons) and spends most of his free time studying an ancient race of bird-people, yet has a very large fangirl following thanks to his curly auburn hair, huge blue eyes, smooth skin and decently muscled physique. His participation in the Resistance movement puts him just this side of BadassBookworm.

* In ''Series/{{Shadowhunters}}'', Simon Lewis is hiding a ripped body underneath his JewishAndNerdy exterior. Also, in an AlternateRealityEpisode the spectacularly attractive Isabelle Lightwood and Magnus Bane take on this trope in their parallel universe incarnations.

* ''Videogame/{{MOTHER}}:''
** ''Videogame/EarthBoundBeginnings'' has Lloyd, an extremely pasty 11-year-old with thick, round glasses and a strong interest in computer software. He's a frequent bullying target at his elementary school, and is first introduced hiding from the bullies in a ''trash can'' on the school's roof. But by the end of the game he's [[TookALevelInBadass taken a level in badass]] and pilots a ''tank.''
** ''Videogame/EarthBound'' has Jeff, an {{Expy}} of Lloyd. He's a freckle-faced 13-year-old in a suit and bowtie, complete with thick glasses and a bowl cut. He's also the BadassNormal of the main party, turning mundane broken items like irons and pipes into amazing, advanced machines that can [[AntiMagic block enemy]] PsychicPowers, [[PowerNullifier nullify enemy shields]], and [[RayGun shoot lasers]].

* Landon from ''Chrono Days Sim Date'' actually used to be fat and unattractive when he was young, but has [[FormerlyFat slimmed down]], [[TheGlassesGottaGo gotten contacts]], and [[SheIsAllGrownUp grown up]] into a HotScientist since then while keeping his shy and awkward personality. The game even lampshades this trope with a cheat code obtained from his best ending reading (sans spaces) "nerds irl dont look this handsome".
