* Constable Odo from ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' is an expert at dealing with smugglers, killers, and any other criminals on the station. Put him in a room with the highly flirtatious Lwaxana Troi, on the other hand...

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', Emilio isn't the greatest with people thanks to a long RevengeBeforeReason emo phase and his general gloomy aura. [[GenkiGuy Shun]] and [[PluckyGirl Alicia]] laugh over how embarrassed he seems when the Royal Guard hoist him on their shoulders and congratulate him after seeing him in battle for the first time.

* WesternAnimation/KimPossible. Taking down supervillains comes easy for her. Asking the boy she has a crush on to the school dance is another issue entirely, although she is a popular student and cheerleader. Her sidekick [[ButtMonkey Ron]], however, is neither, but still has the problem of social awkwardness.

* On a similar note, the main trio in ''WesternAnimation/{{Clarence}}''- [[TheDitz Clarence]], [[NervousWreck Jeff]], and [[MotorMouth Sumo]], want to be exactly like the other kids, but their dysfunctional relationship often makes it difficult.

* Arthur in the beginning of the Camelot musical, there's even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6blsCGdDI4 a song about it]]!
* CyranoDeBergerac. Kill a man in a swordfight to the death while composing a poem about it? It's what he lives for. Admit any kind of romantic affection? Too scary for him.

* Comicbook/{{Superman}}, while his Clark Kent persona is a dead-ringer, modern writers have applied some Fringe Brilliance to explain this as just a humble mid-western farmboy trying to cope with life in the big city, creating some genuine Adorkable moments when interacting with women -- specifically Lois Lane. DependingOnTheWriter this can even cross over into ''Captain America'' levels of DorkKnight.

* ''Film/{{Transformers}}'': Ladies and Gentlemen...''Sam Witwicky''. He has a habit of putting his foot in his mouth, and [[MsFanservice the girls]] [[GiveGeeksAChance seem to dig that about him]]. [[WordOfGod The writers]] did state their inspiration for Sam's character was basically [[Franchise/BackToTheFuture Marty]] [[Creator/MichaelJFox McFly]]-''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny on crack]]''. Also helps that Sam is played by [[{{Adorkable}} Shia LaBeouf]].
--> '''[[Podcast/RiffTrax Ms. Witwicky:]]''' ''And remember, son: if you meet any girls, make sure to stammer and act as awkwardly as possible around them. Model-hot women inexplicably find that attractive in the movies - it worked for [[Film/SayAnything Lloyd Dobbler]]! Bye!''

* Harry [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Dresden]] practically owns this trope. Despite having a crush on Murphy, it took him literal ''years'' to broach the subject. He has a major chivalrous streak that gets him in all kinds of trouble, though he's mostly set it aside. In his own words, he's essentially a magic nerd. There is also other key issues. As Harry is about 6'9" tall, he must move carefully or hurt someone. He can short out any technology from a radius of 100 feet on a ''bad'' day, and so spends a lot of time avoiding electronics. To avoid soulgazes, he never looks anybody directly in the eye. In a side story from Murphy's point of view, she mentions he gives the impression of being mildly autistic.
** It doesn't help that he hangs out with Thomas Raith. White Court Vampires are actually irresistible, so much that Thomas can't get a muggle job because he keeps getting his bones jumped.

* ''Literature/StarWarsKenobi'': At the beginning of his Tatooine exile, Ben Kenobi has never ''not'' been a Jedi, and so has trouble with ordinary conversations over lunch with Annileen, especially when discussing her love life.

* Shiroe from [[LightNovel/LogHorizon]] is a master strategist who managed to take down the most elite of monsters and raid bosses, and commandeered an army to stop a goblin invasion. This same calculating person falls apart when not talking about important business, but things friends talk about.
