* In ''Manga/IchigoMashimaro'', Nobue is jokingly described by fans as the OtakuSurrogate of manga author Barasui, due to her much mellower personality and tendency to hug little girls.

* Konata in ''Manga/LuckyStar'' (the current page image for CosplayOtakuGirl) is a complete over-the-top {{otaku}}, obsessed with anime and video games, mostly to allow for [[ShoutOut mentions]] of ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya, [[VideoGame/GalaxyAngel Galaxy Angel II]], VisualNovel/{{Shuffle}}, [[ActorAllusion Haruhi Suzumiya]], VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}, VisualNovel/ToHeart,'' ''[[RuleOfThree Haruhi Suzumiya]]'', and so forth... but very little of what most [[{{Shoujo}} girls are expected to watch]], save for [[RuleOfFunny a notable brush with]] ''[[LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru Mari Mite]]'' (and a brief reference to ''Manga/WeddingPeach'' while the other girls talk about wedding dresses). This is lampshaded when Konata explains them as habits picked up to be closer to her father, although her friends then have more questions about [[DirtyOldMan her father's choice of habits]]...

* Tomoko Kuroki from ''[[Manga/NoMatterHowILookAtItItsYouGuysFaultImNotPopular Watamote]]'' is a downplayed example, since she likes anime and video games aimed at male otaku but she also likes things aimed specifically at girls, like otome games. However, at the same time she's also an example of this gone ''horribly wrong''; her knowledge of perverted media only makes her that much more unapproachable, and ''because'' she's so obsessed with that stuff she initially had no idea how to approach real life and real people. She's horribly antisocial and judgmental, and even her closet kin, her brother, is annoyed with her. Luckily over the course of the series she starts to get better, but she's still the universe's ChewToy.

* Saiko Yonebayashi in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul[=:Re=]''. Her bedroom is plastered with anime posters and figures, and she would rather spend her days playing video games or goofing off online than doing her job as a Ghoul Investigator. In an omake, her introduction to her new mentor was a speech bubble taking up the entire panel, listing off her various geek-related interests. As the resident Otaku, she is a constant source of {{Shout Out}}s.

*** Of course, a lot of women ''do'' play eroge with naked women. Some of these games have huge female fanbases, like ''Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke Wo'', to the point of most Sonohana fanart being done by female fans. The author himself was surprised about it. This may be TruthinTelevision. Later made stronger by the introduction of two friends, one of whom is more of an '[[YaoiFangirl Bukuro]] than [[OtakuSurrogate Akiba]]' fangirl while another (relevant to the series) is a YuriFan.

* Kimiko of ''DresdenCodak'' has been accused of fitting this trope by various critics, as an attractive female transhumanist and extreme technophile in a comic written by a man who has also written for various futurist publications. {{Mad Scientist}}s, {{otaku}} or otherwise, tend to be rather thin on the ground in real life.

* Kaede Mizuno from ''Manga/NyanKoi'' loves anything yakuza related. A subversion on her part, since we're led to believe she's a MoeMoe girl.
