* Penny and Leonard on TheBigBangTheory are such an extreme example as to nearly defy belief. Leonard is a bespectacled, hopeless nerd with a Ph.D in Physics and alarmingly subpar social skills (which suddenly appear impressive when compared with those of the people he hangs out with); Penny is an attractive aspiring actress who works as a waitress in the nearby Cheesecake Factory and never finished college. Lots of LampshadeHanging on this one.

* [[TheDitz Razz]] and [[AcademicAthlete Sally]] in ''Literature/DontCallMeIshmael''. They do have some common interests (for example [[TheBeautifulGame football]]), but she is down-to-earth, very studious, intelligent and calm. [[MotorMouth Razz]]... is not.

* ShipTease aside, it may as well be Zelgadis the cynical, weary, brooding chimera paired with Amelia the optomistic, innocent, and plucky princess from ''{{Slayers}}'', with hints of BroodingBoyGentleGirl peppered in there. In the novels, there is also the hot-headed, driven Luke with the snarky, calm Millina (in this case, this is AllLoveIsUnrequited).

* While not officially a couple as of yet, Soul and Maka from ''SoulEater'' are considered this. Maka is a BadassBookworm who always follows the rules and feels the need to do everything right in order to get by. Soul, on the other hand, is a DeadpanSnarker who would rather do things his own way and tends to go against orders that anyone bothers to give him.
