* Howard Wolowitz in ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. He is asthmatic, allergic to peanuts, almonds, and walnuts, prone to canker sores and pink eye, succumbs to seasickness, has an incredibly high genetic risk of heart illness, and has transient idiopathic arrhythmia.
** Leonard Hofstadter counts as well, if not more so. On top of having NerdGlasses (which he is BlindWithoutEm) and asthma, he is also lactose intolerant and has a deviated septum. Also a rare example of this type as a lead character.

** Sheldon Cooper is usually healthy due to his highly regimented lifestyle, but succumbs very easily to illness (and becomes [[InsufferableGenius even more insufferable than usual]] when he does). Any deviation from his dietary routine results in serious intestinal distress.

* Tino's cousin in ''TheWeekenders'' is a subversion: when they were younger his health problems were so demanding that he slept with a humidifier ''and'' dehumidifier on for each nostril, 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.

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.
