* A number of bands take this route. See the page quotes.



* The growing popularity of the video game industry has helped push this trope, since the gamer geek sub-culture has become an object of nostalgic reverance.

** This was, of course, taken word-for-word from an exchange with Nick Fury during [[UltimateMarvel the Ultimate Galactus]] storyline. (But it was much more badass because, among other things, he was saying it to ''[[Creator/SamuelLJackson Nick Fury]]'').

* In the WhateleyUniverse, at SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy, all the gadgeteers and devisers are this, but Generator (Jade Sinclair) fits this too. She sings anime theme songs in public. In Japanese. She invents shoulder angels. ''Working'' shoulder angels, which start a fad across campus. She is one of the founding members of Team Wondercute. She says she is building a working model of [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Raising Heart]].

* Abed from ''Series/{{Community}}'', who views the world through the lens of tropes and is proud of it. Much of ex-quarter back Troy's arch is coming to realize his own geekiness, and eventually show pride in it, too.

* The entire staff of ''PvP'' except probably Jade. Francis cosplayed as Chun Li to a convention without any insecurity whatsoever. Brent will fight you, but not before saying "It's Amok Time!", etc.

* The cast of ''FullFrontalNerdity'' fits this trope pretty well, as you may expect from the title. Though how much they have to be proud about is debatable; they do fit a fair number of negative nerd/geek stereotypes, and each seems at least somewhat aware of the others' faults in this respect.

* Creator/FeliciaDay. After a two-year addiction to WorldOfWarcraft, she decided she needed to do something productive with her time and began writing a television show pilot. What was it about? [[TheGuild Online gaming.]]

* Commander Peepers from ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' gives a speech to Emperor Awesome in "The Axe" about how he's proud to be a "nerd" because nerds get things done in life by setting goals and then learning how to achieve said goals.
