* Kaname Chidori from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' is called "The School Idol Nobody Wants" InUniverse because, while she hits most of the notes listed in the trope description (beautiful, intelligent, athletic), her aggressive, emotionally open, take-no-crap personality is regarded as a complete deal-breaker by her male classmates.

* ''Manga/OniisamaE'' actually has ''three''. The first is StudentCouncilPresident Fukiko "Miya-sama" Ichinomiya, an elegant and beautiful [[spoiler: and very unstable]] {{Ojou}}; the second is [[spoiler: Fukiko's half-sister]] Rei "Hana no Saint-Juste" Asaka, a kind yet troubled {{Bifauxnen}} who's also a musician and ex-sportswoman; and the third is Kaoru "Kaoru no Kimi" Orihara, a sports idol {{Ladette}} and the ClassRepresentative for Nanako's class.

This trope is frequent in Japanese media, where the character is often TheOjou, functioning as something of a School Princess. While the notion of "most popular student(s)" exists in the standard Western HighSchool setting as well, {{Alpha Bitch}}es and {{Jerk Jock}}s are generally portrayed [[PopularIsDumb in a much less positive light]], and as such rarely have a similar cult of personality to the school idol. A possibly helpful distinction: is the student an ''idol'' (as in, is he or she ''idolized''?), or "merely" wildly popular?

* Miki Nakayama from Hakaiou Noritaka. Strong yet beautiful. She is the desire of every male in her high school including the protagonist. Though she is more noticed for her busty chest as both the star of the boxing team and even the male judo team just want to get close to her bosoms.Even the black boxer Ken Jackson considers making out with her after his fight with the protagonist.

* Katja from ''VisualNovel/MissingStars'' is a [[TheAce very good student]] and choir singer who is well-respected at her school. She has a lot of admirers. Katja also counts as an {{Ojou}}.

* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'': [[AlphaBitch Chloé]] ''thinks'' she's this, frequently insisting that "everybody loves me" and apparently being deluded enough to actually believe it, but in actuality almost the entire school hates her for being a petty bully.

* ''VideoGame/Persona5'' deconstructs this in an interesting way; most of its female party members have character archetypes that would traditionally slot them in for this trope, but are instead social outcasts for those reasons. Ann Takamaki is a quarter-white part-time model whose exotic beauty just makes her the target of multiple undesirable rumors, Makoto Niijima is the intelligent and studious StudentCouncilPresident who's seen by her schoolmates as nothing more than a TeachersPet and AcademicAlphaBitch, and Haru Okumura is the wealthy heiress who has trouble connecting with others precisely because she realizes most people are only interested in her for her family's wealth.

* Yukiko Amagi is vaguely hinted to be one of these in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', but Naoto Shirogane actually makes the local news as the "Detective Prince". Amusingly enough, despite being a TeenIdol, Rise Kujikawa doesn't appear to become a school idol once she enrolls.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'':
** Mitsuru [[TheOjou Kirijo]]. Granted, her status as something of a YakuzaPrincess thanks to being the heiress of a MegaCorp involved in shady activities that makes generous donations to the school allows her to practically run Gekkoukan High regardless of what others may think of her, she still has quite a reputation and more than a few fans among the student body.
** Yukari Takeba is quite popular among the student body as well. Hell, she's even been called "the famous Yukari Takeba" in-game.

to:

* ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'':
** The original ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' has Eriko Kirishima, one of the more popular girls at St. Hermelin thanks to her beauty and amiable personality.
** Deconstructed in ''VideoGame/Persona2: Innocent Sin''. Lisa Silverman is the top candidate at Seven Sister's BeautyContest, but the same exotic American features that make her desirable now caused her to be bullied as a young child, and her current popularity still causes quite a few problems for her.
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'':
*** Mitsuru Kirijo, the [[{{Ojou}} wealthy heiress]] to the Kirijo Group. Granted, the fact that her family's [[YakuzaPrincess somewhat shady]] MegaCorp makes generous donations to the school allows her to practically run Gekkoukan High regardless of what others may think of her, but she still has quite a good reputation and more than a few fans among the student body.

* ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial 1'' 's HighSchool, Kirameki High, has three School Idols dominating the campus: Saki Nijino, "[[CuteSportsClubManager The Idol of Kirameki High's Sports Clubs]]"; Mira Kagami, "[[AlphaBitch The Madonna of Kirameki High]]", and Shiori Fujisaki, "[[TheAce The Superstar of Kirameki High]]". Their {{Iconic Item}}s (Saki's home-made "[=NijiBen=]" lunch box, Mira's earrings, and Shiori's hairband), are, according to [[BromanticFoil Info Man]] Yoshio, the most valuable items among the boys in the school, and getting one of them is considered as a feat and a proof of close relationship with the girl.

* Similarly, Rin Tohsaka is VisualNovel/FateStayNight's most popular girl in school. This is achieved by being very good looking and keeping up an honor student facade, but she's actually quite a short tempered {{Tsundere}} (more evident in the original VisualNovel than the anime).

* Ayaka from ''Manga/AnoKiss'' has quite a few similarities to Rin Tohsaka, being always pretty, talented, kind and helpful at school but lacking any sort of tact outside of it. It comes partly from her mother expecting her to be a perfect student and putting an unreasonable pressure on her, but she's proud of being the school idol nonetheless (hence her distress when [[BrilliantButLazy Yurine]] beats her in the score ranking). Chapter 22 lampshades even if she's number 2 in grades, everyone still loves her, while Yurine is gifted but too socially inept to qualify.
