* Pretty much every deviser or gadgeteer at SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy in the WhateleyUniverse. Even the attractive ones (like Bugs and Widget) tend to be obsessive about their inventions, weird in various ways, etc. Bugs has a fascination with the egg, even building inventions into egg shapes.

* ''Film/LiveFreeOrDieHard'': "the Warlock", a notorious hacker, is played by Kevin Smith. Yes, ''that'' [[TheViewAskewniverse Kevin Smith]]. Then the KidSidekick is played by Justin Long with his "gonna get beat up in high school" looks. The villain has a team of pizza eating mini-Smith working for him but he himself, meant to be the uber-hacker, is a very sharply dressed Timothy Olyphant with a hot [[EverybodyWasKungFuFighting kung fu fighting]] [[ActionGirl assassin girlfriend]]. However the contrast with those two and everyone else just underlines EvilIsSexy.

* Cedric in ''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons'' alongside his NerdGlasses and bowtie. Subverted in the sports part as he is shown to be very good at playing baseball, swiming and fishing.

* Jerry in ''Series/ParkerLewisCantLose'' UpToEleven in the first seasons, although the third and last season made his character less one-dimensional and with more charisma, having other interest apart from "study" like filmmaking.

* Daria to some extend in ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' has many of the normal tropes associated with nerds; NerdGlasses, good grades, unpopularity, niche interests and being social outcast. Nevertheless this facets are often overlooked because the character also breaks many of the stereotype been a DeadpanSnarker and TheCynic. If anything she’s more likely to be doing the bullying than the other way around.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' film series have several nerdy characters joining the police, among others TheWoobie Carl Sweetchuck and FatComicRelief Thomas "House" Conklin.


Added DiffLines:

* Sam in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is a medieval version of a nerd: a shy fatty bookworm not very good in physical prowess by any mean, victim of bullying and a disappointment for his harsh warrior father. But very brave nevertheless.
* ''Series/WeirdScience'': Wyatt and Gary (socially awkward school misfits interested in science and comic books) albeit without the traditional depiction of nerds, especially not in their attire.
* Jerry in ''Series/ParkerLewisCantLose'' UpToEleven in the first seasons, although the third and last season made his character less one-dimensional and with more charisma, having other interest apart from "study" like filmmaking.

* ''WesternAnimation/PoliceAcademy'' as in the films several characters can be considered nerds, but the most radical example is Carl Sweetchuck who suffered a certain degree of {{flanderization}} from his movie counterpart.

* ''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]].
