* Averted in ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}''; Takagi is made to choose between two girls who had been vying for his attention. He rejects [[InsufferableGenius Iwase]] (who had a one-sided academic rivalry with him and is one of the top students at their school) due to the fact she wouldn't let him continue to write manga, and instead picks [[GenkiGirl Miyoshi]] (who doesn't get very good grades) because she promises to support him, even if it meant he'd have less time to spend with her.
** There is, however, a point in which Miyoshi ''thinks'' this is happening, when she discovers a copy of Iwase's book with a letter from Iwase to Takagi (which he didn't know about). She then thinks of how Iwase is smarter and more talented in other regards than she is, and becomes very depressed until things are cleared up.
* ''Anime/DigimonSavers'': Nanami tries to invoke this and tempt Touma into a FaceHeelTurn, but he doesn't bite.

* Shikamaru and Temari are commonly shipped in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' (with significant ShipTease in their scenes together, including a literal case in the anime with Temari's subordinates teasing her about it); Shikamaru has an IQ of 200, making him the smartest of the Rookie Nine and one of the smartest characters in the series (if not ''the'' smartest), and Temari is noted in-story and [[AllThereInTheManual in the databooks]] to be very intelligent. Even In-story potential love interest and local CuteBookworm Shiho (who has a crush on Shikamaru, who may or may not be oblivious to it) is a member of the Konoha cryptanalysis team. [[spoiler:In the epilogue, Shikamaru and Temari ''are'' married and even have a son.]]
* Izumo Kusanagi and Seri Awashima from ''Anime/{{K}}''. Really, all of Scepter 4 could be considered the "smart one," but Seri is notably more cool-headed than the rest. Also, they're both their respective clans' NumberTwo, and within their clans, they fill TheSmartGuy role vs. the more hot-headed thirds (who are also ShipTease'd).

** Averted with the [[BrainyBrunette Shizuka]] and [[ChildProdigy Dekisugi]] ShipTease. It's implied many times they like each other and could have been a good couple, but in the future Shizuka chooses to marry [[IdiotHero Nobita]] over Dekisugi.

** In later seasons, TeenGenius Daria is paired with her intellectual equal, [[GentlemanAndAScholar Tom Sloane.]]Sloane]]. There was also [[HomeschooledKids Ted]], another brainy kid and one of her very rare crushes. (Meanwhile, her longstanding infatuation with [[EruditeStoner Trent]] failed in good part because he ''didn't'' fit this trope.)


Added DiffLines:

* {{Subverted}} in ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''--one of the later episodes had [[AsianAndNerdy Candy]] develop a crush on [[SeekerArchetype Dipper]] (possibly as a FandomNod, since they were a popular pairing already). However, he's not interested, and she gets over it by the end of the episode.
