* As said above, this has always been a popular trope in opera, where the Ingenue is usually played by a lyric or lyric coloratura soprano with a sweet voice to match her innocent personality.
* Mimi from Puccini's ''Theatre/{{La bohème}}'' falls under this category. Listen to her aria "Si, mi chiamano Mimi" for further details.
* Cio-Cio-san from Puccini's ''Theatre/{{Madame Butterfly}}''. She's sweet, innocent, and slightly childlike with a strong sense of hope.
* Lakmé from Delibes' ''Lakmé'' definitely counts: She's a sweet, virginal Hindu priestess who falls passionately in love with Gérald, a British officer. Listen to her aria "Les fleurs me paraissent plus belles" in Act I, which she sings after falling in love with Gérald.
* Micaela from Bizet's ''Theatre/{{Carmen}}'', the sweet and innocent village girl engaged to Don José, and a stark contrast to Femme Fatale Carmen.

* Zerlina from Mozart's ''Theatre/{{Don Giovanni}}''. She's a young bride who's almost seduced into sleeping with Don Giovanni and she doesn't realize it until Donna Elvira shows up and puts a stop, declaring that she would protect her.
* Lucia from Donizetti's ''Lucia di Lammermoor'' has traits of this.
* Gilda from Verdi's ''Theatre/{{Rigoletto}}'', since she falls in love with a womanizer and is so happy to be in love, yet she is sadly killed by the end of the opera.
* Rusalka from Dvorak's ''Rusalka'' is this, as she sings a sweet song about wishing to fall in love and be human, and gives up her voice and immortality to fall in love with the Prince.
* Pamina from Mozart's ''Theatre/{{The Magic Flute}}''.
* Princess Elisabeth from Wagner's ''Theatre/{{Tannhäuser}}'', who pines after the titular hero who never acknowledges her feelings.

Added DiffLines:

* Rebecca in ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'' sometimes attempts to present herself this way (it's even in the theme song for the second season: "I can't be held responsible for my actions!" "She's an ingenue!"). But while frequently naive, Rebecca is actually very sexually experienced. The whole show is a deconstruction of female stereotypes and relationship tropes, as well as a pastiche of musical theater, so it's no surprise that the series plays with the concept of the ingenue.

Added DiffLines:

* [[Comicbook/{{X 23}} Laura]] in ''Film/{{Logan}}'' blends some elements of this with FeralChild. Although 11 years old in the film, she demonstrates many behaviors such as playing with the buttons on an elevator, or eating mashed potatoes with her hands of a much younger child. A FreezeFrameBonus of her Transigen records directly states she has the emotional IQ of a child of around six years old.

* Paya from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' spends most of her day doing both her own and her grandmother Impa's duties around Kakariko Village. She doesn't seem to have had any interaction with people of her own generation (who seem absent from the village) and is a major ShrinkingViolet. She's so ignorant of romance that when she develops a crush on Link, she thinks she has fallen ill at first.
