* Averted with Christine Daaé in ''Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', where she may be a daydreamer (and GenreSavvy victim of StockholmSyndrome) but also a WellExcuseMePrincess whose pluck and stubbornness unnerve Raoul several times before he realizes how wrongly he's misjudged her just because she ''isn't'' a meek little ingenue-type. Played straighter in many of the adaptations.
* The ingenue version of Christine is parodied in ''Discworld/{{Maskerade}}'', where she's so woefully oblivious to her complete lack of operatic talent that she completely misses the fact that a dowdier but sonically gifted woman is actually doing all the singing!! She's self-centred as a gyroscope and finishes every sentence with two exclamation marks!!



* Christine Daaé in every incarnation of ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' '''except''' (Gaston Leroux's original novel where she may be a daydreamer (and GenreSavvy victim of StockholmSyndrome)) but also a WellExcuseMePrincess whose pluck and stubbornness unnerve Raoul several times before he realizes how wrongly he's misjudged her just because she ''isn't'' a meek little ingenue-type.

** In Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, Christine is actually called "your precious little ingenue" (by her rival).

* Stella from the 1918 film ''Film/StellaMaris'' was crafted into one. After losing the ability to walk at a young age, Stella's family [[DisabledMeansHelpless decided to try and shield her from the world]]. She was kept in her room and only shown the good things of the world, like kittens and happy children playing. After she regains her ability to walk and becomes more independent, Stella quickly learns that the world isn't all fluff like she was raised to believe. Stella is played by Creator/MaryPickford in her signature ringlets, which makes her look all the more innocent and naive.

** Nunnally Lamperouge is a sweet young girl unaware of anything beyond her brother and school. Then [[OddlyNamedSequel R2]] rolls around, and we see that despite being blind and wheelchair-bound, [[WellIntentionedExtremist she's still her father's daughter...]]

* Yuki from ''Manga/SchoolLive'' is extremely friendly, bubbly, and innocent. [[OlderThanTheyLook She looks and acts much younger than she is]]. Yuki is also TheOphelia, as spends much of the series blissfully ignorant of the ZombieApocalypse surrounding her. That trait also helps emphasise her naivety to TooDumbToLive levels.

* A male example (to an extent) in Jeremy Heere from ''Theatre/BeMoreChill''. He's young, in love, a bit naive, and easily manipulated (though the latter could be explained by the villain prying on his low self-esteem and self-loathing). Subverted heavily, however, in that in his very first appearance he's trying to watch porn.
