Whatever the actual level of ill health, it will be a sign of physical incompetence and social awkwardness - or at least, that's what everyone will assume.

* [[NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide Lisa Zemo]], who started off with [[LisaNeedsBraces braces]], NerdGlasses, and a perpetually stuffy nose. Subverted, however, because a season or two later she [[BeautifulAllAlong comes back looking less nerdy]] and on a new allergy medication. One episode has her temporarily revert to this, as she had allergies again and had to wear hypoallergenic clothing and glasses. This time without the curly hair and braces, though.
* Howard Wolowitz in TheBigBangTheory.

* Filburt from ''RockosModernLife'' who becomes physically ill even from the most mundane of tasks. [[OverlyLongGag "I'm nauseous. I'm nauseous. I'm nauseous. I'm nauseous..."]]

* Lester Crest, the geeky MissionControl from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV''. Justified since he actually has a wasting disease, and needs a cane to walk short distances.

* Tino's cousin in ''TheWeekenders'' is a subversion: he was a this when they were younger, and Tino dreads hanging out with him because of it. Once he finally lets his cousin get a word in edgewise, though, it turns out that he's now both healthy and cool.

* In a creepy example, Cousin Arnie from ''WesternAnimation/Hey Arnold''. He's pale and has postnasal drip/sinus problems, and he's also a creepy sociopath with some kind of AmbiguousDisorder.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' is occasionally implied to be this. He's certainly pretty geeky to begin with (wears a button-down shirt tucked into his pants and a tie, has dorky interests, etc.) When he gets too [[DramaQueen worked-up]] about something, he'll start wheezing loudly. Mr Krabs also implied in one episode that Spongebob takes allergy medication. In the first Christmas episode, he's so shocked to see Santa Claus that he basically has an extremely happy, excited asthma attack and then faints.
