* 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.

* 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]].

A Nerd is someone who... actually, it is easier to describe a nerd as what they are ''not.'' Not smooth, not handsome, and not someone you would instantly describe as 'attractive'. Not, above all else, ''popular'' outside a very narrow grouping of fellow-nerds. They are oftentimes a walking, talking fashion-disaster. One definition of a nerd is someone who not only didn't attend his high school prom, but would be puzzled or even offended at the suggestion that he would want to. [[HollywoodNerd Most nerds portrayed in the media actually fail this test]], but real-life nerd Creator/JossWhedon passes. (There are also nerds who would want to go to the prom, but wouldn't be able to get a date.)
