* Jin from ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'', with the double points for long ponytail (he's a big fangirl draw). [[spoiler:The glasses didn't actually do anything. He'd apparently adopted them as a disguise (seriously ineffective; the only time it fools anyone looking for him was because the searcher had heard Jin wore glasses but he happened to ''not'' be wearing them currently), but it's still a serious BadAss moment when TheGlassesComeOff in the finale because it means he's past hiding behind the disguise]].

[[{{Meganekko}} Bespectacled girls are cute]]. [[TheShortGuyWithGlasses Bespectacled short guys]] are book-smart.

* Takahata-Sensei from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'': Thin glasses, check. Hawt, Asuna is convinced at least so check. {{Badass}}, double check. Expression ranges from bemused smile to mildly concerned frown even in the midst of combat, check.

* Kakyoin from ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure''. While prone to outbursts of emotion like his compatriots, he is by far the least prone to them, and is often the straight man to Polnareff's {{EmotionalBruiser}}, {{ IdiotHero}} combo.

Most commonly, the glasses in question are of the narrow, thin-rimmed sort to avoid obscuring the bishy boy's pretty face, though they can be prone to [[ScaryShinyGlasses shining spookily]]. Also, God help you if TheGlassesComeOff. If you're dangerous even without removing them, they are SpecsOfAwesome. If you're a [[BastardBoyfriend cold, sadistic]] but [[MrFanservice hot]] LoveInterest type as well as a spectacled guy, then you might be a BespectacledBastardBoyfriend. If you've got the cold and sadistic but not the love interest, you might have FourEyesZeroSoul.

* Reisi Munakata, the Blue King in ''Anime/{{K}}'' is distilled essence of this trope. His two subordinates with glasses, Saruhiko Fushimi and Tatsuya Enomoto, aren't quite this - Fushimi tries, but [[TheGadfly he can only stay stoic]] [[StalkerWithACrush for so long]]. He has thicker frames. Enomoto is just {{Adorkable}} (but he has the ponytail). Munakata is also {{Adorkable}} on the inside, but he hides it well.. most of the time. Then there are times when there's a ''[[GratuitousNinja real live ninja]]'' involved, and there's [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee only so much one can do to stay calm]]...
** Goki Zenjo, with his red glasses.
