* ''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.
*** Yukari Takeba is quite popular among the student body as well. Hell, she's even called "the famous Yukari Takeba" in-game.

* ''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.

* 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

* Multiple School Idols have shown up in various ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series. In ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'', [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Tsukasa]] sides with the put-upon photography club against the evil popular kids (and they are literally evil, being [[EvolutionaryLevels Orphe]][[BackFromTheDead nochs]]). Various examples also come and go in ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'', though the most notable is [[TheHero Gentaro]] [[IdiotHero Kisaragi]] himself, who has so far made good on his pledge [[ThePowerOfFriendship to befriend everybody at his school]].

Not to be confused with the characters in the ''Anime/LoveLive'' franchise, which features competing high school IdolSinger clubs. See also TeenIdol.



* In ''[[Franchise/LoveLive Love Live! School Idol Project]]'', the term ''School Idol'' is actually used for [[IdolSinger female musical performers]] who are still in high school (i.e. not professionals), and are affliated with/advertising for their school. However, Eli Ayase can be considered as one in the traditional sense of the trope, for her stunning good looks, talent in ballet (and dancing in general), and being the StudentCouncilPresident.
