This is usually not TruthInTelevision, because whether or not you need to use an inhaler has little to no bearing on your personality. However, if you have asthma or some other kind of breathing problem, it might prevent you from participating in strenuous sports, fitting with the nerdy stereotype. This probably accounts for the association.

* Angus from ''VideoGame/NightInTheWoods'' needs an inhaler, and while he may be the most 'nerdy' person in his group of friends, he's also probably the most physically imposing.

* Mikey in ''Film/TheGoonies'' has one that he throws away at the end of the movie, insinuating that now he's had adventures he's less nerdy. This is probably justified due to the fact that he was misusing it before, and has realized it's time to stop focusing on his weaknesses if his life is going to move forward. Treating an inhaler like a security blanket leads to over-medication, and ultimately, worse asthma.

* Averted with Scott Shelby from ''Videogame/HeavyRain''. He has asthma and needs an inhaler, but he's also a hard-boiled private detective and one of the more {{Badass}} characters in the game.

* [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in ''{{LOST}}'' when Shannon has an asthma attack, Jack is surprised that she is asthmatic saying that he's never seen her use an inhaler, Boone replies by saying she uses it when no ones looking because "She's been embarrassed about it since she was a little kid; I guess breathing's not cool."

* Eddie in Creator/StephenKing's ''{{IT}}'' uses an inhaler. It even becomes a plot-point.
