* ''LightNovel/BeyondTheBoundary'': Mirai Kuriyama. She initially appears clumsy, awkward, and tries not to associate herself with others, but is actually kindhearted and sweet (not to mention [[BadassAdorable a badass]]). Humorously, her boyfriend has a glasses fetish which Mirai finds "unpleasant".

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'': There are several ''male'' Meganekkos but the ones who resemble the archetype more closely are Estonia, Austria, Canada and [[http://community.livejournal.com/hetalia/673078.html Thailand]]. America does not fit the stereotype, but his glasses represent Texas; Sweden, meanwhile, looks like the StoicSpectacles type, but he almost fits because of his HugeSchoolgirl-like personality.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Nina Einstein was like this for much of the first season. She ''appears'' this way for a good portion of season one because she barely says anything. But then she gets [[FantasticRacism weirder]], and [[CargoShip weirder]], and '''[[PsychoLesbian weirder]]'''. And then [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope worse]]. And in the end, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone she gets]] [[CharacterDevelopment better]]. Wow.
** She also has elements of BeautifulAllAlong in episode 9 of R2 when she attends the wedding banquet for Tianzi and Prince Odysseus as Schniezel's date, in a pretty gown and without her glasses. Although whether this actually makes her more attractive or not is up to personal taste.

** The character notes in Negima claim that Nodoka was designed as an evolution of the Meganekko trope, the "megamikko". Instead of "girl with glasses", it is "girl with long bangs [[OverlyLongName falling into her face and obscuring her eyes]] [[OverlyLongGag in an overall cute way]]".

* ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico'': Hikaru. One character specifically notes that she's cute with her glasses ''off'', as if she weren't cute enough already. It's debatable.
** One is also suspicious, given how GenreSavvy she (and most of the rest of the crew) is, that she might just be wearing them for effect, especially since all the other glasses on the show are of the [[ScaryShinyGlasses Scary Shiny]] variety, while hers aren't.

* ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'': Mari Illustrious Makinami appeared to be this when the first pictures of her were released (to the point where her FanNickname was Glasses Girl). It turns out that she's an AxCrazy BloodKnight almost as insane as the [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits rest of the cast]], constantly talking and even ''singing'' to herself. She's also oddly fixated on her sense of smell to the point of spontaneously walking up to Shinji to sniff at him, and she actually ''likes'' fighting bizarre {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, complete with GlowingEyesOfDoom, a [[SlasherSmile huge grin]] on her face, and a [[HeroicRROD secret password]] to give her mecha a fitting new look.
** Note that WordOfGod claims Mari's character wasn't finalized during her brief appearance in ''Evangelion 1.0'''s trailer. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen There was apparently a suggested scene where Mari and Shinji would have had tea on the roof]] ([[SpotOfTea Mari being British]]), which would have placed her more under this trope.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'': Emma Emmerich admits that she simply wears glasses for show, and because her step-brother Hal wears glasses. And Hal, thanks to those {{Moe}} "Sweet Snake" figurines that have recently popped up, can qualify for being a male example of this trope.
** In some Easter Eggs, you find out that both Raiden and Snake seem interested in her.

* ''Franchise/StarOcean'': CuteClumsyGirl Sarah Jerand seems to be an archetype laundry list with some wings attached. Most players, however, hate her because her personality traits are exaggerated to the point of ridiculousness in most of her featured cutsenes.
** [[MissionControl Welch]] gets bonus points for [[MediumAwareness being aware of this trope and taking complete advantage of it]].

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': Miss Pauling, the Administrator's assistant, introduced in one of the [[http://www.teamfortress.com/war/administrator/ Administrator comics]]. She doesn't hesitate to manipulate Soldier and Demoman into killing each other, mind, but she has the look. (It helps that she's still less cold than her boss. This says a lot about her boss.) As the comics and videos progressed, she becomes one of the most important female characters, remaining cute despite her proficiency with deception and murder.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'': Surprisingly for an ImprobablyFemaleCast, there's only ''5'' characters that fits this trope: Rikako Asakura, Luna Child (when she's reading), Mamizou Futatsuiwa, Kosuzu Motoori (again, for reading), and Sumireko Usami.
