* ''Series/TinMan'':
** Azkadellia, the MagnificentBitch of the series, oddly enough has her Moe moments (Moements?). "[[{{Tearjerker}} Oh, Xora]]."
** Glitch has ''moe'' qualities for many fans, due to the combination of his adorably quirky personality and [[TheWoobie traumatic backstory.]]
* Gaius Baltar in the reimagining of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' is perceived this way by female fans.
* In a rare Live-Action LampshadeHanging in ''Series/UltramanMebius'', one of the GUYS' crew, Teppei Kuze, is the son of a rich family who has a maid named "Moe". The show also has a more straightforward example in Konomi Amagai, another member of the GUYS crew, a timid {{Meganekko}} who loves animals and children.
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'':
** Kaylee Frye. Whedon likes his anime. He has even said that everything becomes happy and shiny when she smiles.
** Goes double for River. On top of being ''very'' Moe, she's also 125% [[TheWoobie woobie.]]
* Creator/SummerGlau (the abovementioned River) as ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'' Cameron. The girl plays the {{Moe}} to maximum effect.
* ''{{Series/Dollhouse}}'':
** Summer Glau (again) as Bennett. So Moe that she threatens to create an adorable Moe singularity.
** Sierra's fan girl persona. Sierra's default state seems to be [[TheWoobie woobie.]]
** Topher Brink. He may be amoral and occasionally arrogant, but his awkward nerd tendencies, coupled with his decent looks, make him adorable.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Willow, when she's not, y'know, evil. This is especially noticeable in the first few seasons.
** Tara. [[spoiler:One of several reasons it was such a sucker-punch when she was killed.]]
** Dawn, interestingly [[JustifiedTrope justified]]: [[spoiler: She was deliberately made to be an adorable younger sister so that Buffy would protect her, and so that everyone else would want to, as well.]]



* [[http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Marlena_Moreau_(mirror) Marlena Moreau]] from the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "Mirror, Mirror." So cute. So seemingly [[ManipulativeBitch cold and calculating]], yet so [[TheWoobie abused and fragile]] under the skin.
** Also [[http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Gem Gem]] from the episode "The Empath." She never speaks a word, and all you see her do is take peoples' pain away like E.T.
** Also, also, [[http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Jame_Finney Jame Finney]], the teenage daughter of one of Kirk's friends and a ''very'' emotional ShrinkingViolet UsefulNotes/{{Pettanko}} with blue eyes big enough to drown in and a pleated miniskirt that screams "[[SailorFuku schoolgirl]]". When she apologizes to Kirk so sheepishly, you just want to give her a big hug.
* (Kelly) Erin Hannon on ''Series/TheOfficeUS''
* In ''[[Franchise/TrainMan Densha Otoko]]'', the eponymous character's {{otaku}} friends mention the word "{{Moe}}" in front of Hermes, and Hermes, who is [[{{Muggles}} a normal human being]] and does not know what the word means, asks them, "{{Moe}}?" The friends think this is so {{Moe}} that they record her saying it.
* ''Series/SmallWonder'', a show about a RobotGirl living with her inventor and his family and making their lives a mess while being innocently cute. A rare American example of the theme.
* Lexie Grey (aka "Little Grey") from ''Series/GreysAnatomy''. Yeah, the one with the juice box... Not a virgin, but about as pure as a character can get on that show...
* ''Gag Concert'' has a few examples:
** [[https://search.naver.com/search.naver?where=nexearch&ie=utf8&sm=tab_etc&mra=bjky&pkid=1&os=94052&query=%EA%B9%80%EB%8B%A4%EB%9E%98 Kim Darae]], mainly. She is notable due to her [[SugarWiki/SweetDreamsFuel ridiculously cute appearance and voice]] like a child (even though she was in her early 20s when she in the sketch [[https://namu.wiki/w/우비%20삼남매 Poncho Siblings]]). Here's a [[http://pds.joins.com/news/component/htmlphoto_mmdata/200707/htm_20070701235603c000c010-001.JPG example]]. Aww... isn't she cute?

** A few more examples of moe comedians would be Jang Hana, Son Byeol-yi, In Ah, Lee Suji, and Oh Nami etc.
** The sketches [[https://namu.wiki/w/우비%20삼남매 Poncho Siblings]] and [[https://namu.wiki/w/마빡이 Mabbagi]].
* ''Series/DoctorWho's'' Jo Grant and Polly cover this territory at times.

to:

* [[http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Marlena_Moreau_(mirror) Marlena Moreau]] from ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': Felicity Smoak. Just look at her when she's hopped up on painkillers in "Time of Death". The sight of her giggling and slurring her speech in an oversized shirt is cute enough, but her pure joy at Oliver stroking her face and telling her [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments "You will always be my girl"]] is just CutenessOverload.
* ''Series/BabylonFive'': Ambassador Delenn, despite being one of
the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' most powerful sentient beings in the galaxy and more than capable of commanding a war fleet, can turn absolutely [[CuteKitten kittenish]]. Witness her private moments with [[OfficialCouple John]] [[OneTrueLove Sheridan]], or any time she embarks on a passionately idealistic speech. This fits with her role as TheHeart, as she is easily the most dreamy, romantic character on the show. Creator/MiraFurlan's dreamy green eyes don't hurt, nor does the fact that her nose goes all adorably wrinkled when she's confused or [[WhenSheSmiles smiling]].
* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'': Gaius Baltar is perceived this way by female fans.
* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'': Bernadette is a short, adorable blonde who wears glasses and has an incredibly cute voice.
* ''Series/{{Bones}}'': Zack Addy was the young, innocent and socially awkward member of the squints (forensic geeks) and was like the little puppy of the team. Everyone loved him, sometimes more than the two main characters.
* ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'':
** ''Sometimes'' Shawn Hunter, but ''especially'' [[WholesomeCrossdresser when he's 'Veronica']] in "Chick Like Me" (S4 E15). She's just so shy and so happy to hear how pretty she is.
** Eric Matthews becomes more Moe [[WholesomeCrossdresser when he's ''Chantelle'']] in "What A Drag" (S7 E11). She's so sad when she is told that she's ugly, she actually cries for days until Topanga (not knowing Chantelle is Eric) says she has 'a beautiful spirit' after she gives her good relationship advice.
* ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'': The {{Adorkable}} Detective Amy Santiago who tends to act like a klutzy, bashful overgrown schoolgirl still running for high school valedictorian.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Willow, when she's not, y'know, evil. This is especially noticeable in the first few seasons.
** Tara. [[spoiler:One of several reasons it was such a sucker-punch when she was killed.]]
** Dawn, interestingly [[JustifiedTrope justified]]: [[spoiler: She was deliberately made to be an adorable younger sister so that Buffy would protect her, and so that everyone else would want to, as well.]]
%%* ''Series/{{Castle}}'': Alexis Castle.
* ''Series/{{Community}}'':
** Annie Edison. When an argument makes her bring out the PuppyDogEyes, everyone else has to close their eyes to avoid instantly forgiving her. Annie grows out of this as she becomes MsFanservice, but she still has some elements of it in later seasons.
** Abed should also count, him being socially awkward and weird, not helping on the fact that he appears to be rather young (early 20's) everyone in the group seemed to look out for him, or at the very least not target him when they get into a fight, a lot of girls also ended up getting crushes on him do to finding him adorable and his aloofness reminding them of their dad.
* ''Series/CriminalMinds'': Spencer Reid. Conspicuously the youngest member of the BAU, Reid's adorableness is frequently signposted by Matthew Gray Gubler's voice jumping an octave and random characters flipping his hair. The writers once devoted the first two minutes of an
episode "Mirror, Mirror." So cute. So seemingly [[ManipulativeBitch cold about another team member's grave childhood trauma to Reid performing "physics magic" with utter joy.
* ''Series/DaddysDaughters'': ChildProdigy [[http://www.papinydochki.ru/wp-content/photos/Galina_Sergeevna_small.jpg Galina]] [[http://www.papinydochki.ru/wp-content/photos/liza_arzamasova.jpg Sergeevna]] (Music/LizaArzamasova) is a realistic-looking example of {{Moe}}.

* Mei/Pteraranger from ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger''. A pure-hearted, sweet, kind WarriorPrincess who also possesses a high-pitched voice that would belong to a {{Moe}} character in anime, even though [[CuteButCacophonic it might get on your nerves]] sometimes. Interesting that her ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' counterpart is a hot MsFanservice instead.
** The franchise has had plenty of examples over the years, such as [[Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger Umeko]], [[Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger Natsuki]], [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger Saki]], [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger Kotoha]]...
* Speaking of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', [[Series/PowerRangersRPM Doctor K]]. ShorterMeansSmarter meets WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds.
** For a male example, we have [[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce Trip]]. Appears younger than the rest of his teammates (his actor, Kevin Kleinberg, was 17 when he got the part), has mild {{cloudcuckoolander}} tendencies, is [[GadgeteerGenius really good with tech]], his innocence once led to him falling for a villain's plan, and, most importantly, he is [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m8eqlrPxep1r2qdjeo5_500.png downright adorable]].

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': Phoebe. Quirky, sweet (usually), cute, [[TheIngenue extremely naive]], and always [[ThePollyanna cheerful and optimistic]] despite her [[TheWoobie sad backstory]]. Many fans find her adorable.
* ''Series/{{Fringe}}'': Both versions of Astrid Farnsworth but especially the red-universe Astrid. She's emotionally withdrawn,
socially awkward member and is damaged by secrets in her past, but eventually comes out of her shell to her blue-universe self -- who can't help but {{squee}} whenever she manages to make red-universe Astrid happy.
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'':
** Emma is a neurotic but sweet FragileFlower with SuperOCD.
** Kurt. If you took all
the squints (forensic geeks) most adorable traits a twenty-year-old guy could possibly have and was smushed them all together, you'd get Kurt's actor Creator/ChrisColfer.

([[DeadpanSnarker Well]], [[SarcasticDevotee mostly]].) And that doesn't stop her 'kicked puppy look' from being one of the most effective on television.
%%* ''Series/KatieMorag'': Little Liam. Katie Morag herself could also be this to some.
* ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'': Mei/Pteraranger from ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger''. A is a pure-hearted, sweet, kind WarriorPrincess who also possesses a high-pitched voice that would belong to a {{Moe}} character in anime, even though [[CuteButCacophonic it might get on your nerves]] sometimes.

Partially as a result of examples over her obviously DarkAndTroubledPast and partially as a result of her endearing CloudCuckooLander qualities, Parker's emotional pain seems to set off protective instincts in the years, such as [[Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger Umeko]], [[Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger Natsuki]], [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger Saki]], [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger Kotoha]]...

* Speaking ''Series/MadMen'': [[Creator/ElisabethMoss Peggy Olsen]], even when she becomes successful, she's just so damn adorable, you want to hold her in your arms and never let go.
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'':
** Merlin is more than just {{Adorkable}}. He's also the certified TheWoobie and TheCutie to the upmost degree, especially in the eyes
of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', [[Series/PowerRangersRPM Doctor K]]. ShorterMeansSmarter meets WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds.

She is an {{Adorkable}} GlassesGirl with GirlishPigtails, ZettaiRyouiki, and golden hair.

Also, John's [[BloodKnight an adrenaline junkie]]. And both are down-right sweet and [[{{Adorkable}} cute.]]

A HotLibrarian, {{Meganekko}}, [[ShrinkingViolet shy and timid]], and [[AllLoveIsUnrequited has been in love]] with her {{jerkass}} coworker for some time now, but has never been brave enough to pursue her affections.
* Joshua from ''Series/DarkAngel'' is an unexpectedly adorable ''Moe''. Maybe not in appearance, what with him being a seven-foot mutant dog-man. However, his sweet, gentle, idealistic personality and [[TheWoobie tragic story]] leave many just wanting to give him a big hug.
* Rather surprisingly, Creator/BenedictCumberbatch's performance as a very young UsefulNotes/StephenHawking in BBC's ''Film/{{Hawking}}'' inspires ''moe'' feelings in the female fanbase, at least if the comments on youtube and tumblr are at all indicative.
** Perhaps this isn't too surprising. Viewed in terms of tropes and not as a depiction of the history of theoretical physics, this is an {{Adorkable}} actor with a [[WhenHeSmiles beautiful smile]] playing a CuteGlassesBoy-StoicWoobie-IllBoy-[[LovableNerd nerd]] who uses [[GeekyTurnOn physics trivia]] and [[WaxingLyrical Beatles lyrics]] to flirt with the girl he likes.
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', the titular character. He's more than just {{Adorkable}}. He's also the certified TheWoobie and TheCutie to the upmost degree, especially in the eyes of the fandom.
** Sir Mordred. Why yes, ''[[KingArthur that]]'' [[BigBad Mordred]]. His younger self qualified as CreepyAwesome, but Mordred as an adult is an {{Adorkable}} [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee Arthur fanboy]] of the non-annoying variety who just wants to be the best Knight he can be. Plus, [[spoiler: it's Arthur's own fault when he [[FaceHeelTurn eventually turns on him]], and he remains sympathetic even as a villain]].
* Anna from ''TheVampireDiaries''.
** In season 4, April can qualify as well.
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'': [[spoiler: The Mother herself.]] Even more so when [[spoiler:Barney]] meets her and her eyes look like the size of dinner plates.
* ''Series/KatieMorag'' has little Liam. Katie Morag herself could also be this to some.

* Now-retired ''Series/{{Today}}'' weatherman [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willard_Scott Willard Scott]] is another early example.
* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': Felicity Smoak. Just look at her when she's hopped up on painkillers in "Time of Death". The sight of her giggling and slurring her speech in an oversized shirt is cute enough, but her pure joy at Oliver stroking her face and telling her [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments "You will always be my girl"]] is just CutenessOverload.
* ''Series/{{Supergirl|2015}}'': [[AllLovingHero Kara]] [[BadassAdorable Zor-El]] is basically a puppy in HumanAlien form.

* On ''Series/DaddysDaughters'', ChildProdigy [[http://www.papinydochki.ru/wp-content/photos/Galina_Sergeevna_small.jpg Galina]] [[http://www.papinydochki.ru/wp-content/photos/liza_arzamasova.jpg Sergeevna]] (Music/LizaArzamasova) is a realistic-looking example of {{Moe}}. She is an {{Adorkable}} GlassesGirl with GirlishPigtails, ZettaiRyouiki, and golden hair.
* ''{{Series/Sherlock}}'': [[ShrinkingViolet John]] and Molly are ''both'' [[TheWoobie Woobies.]] Things do get better, and Molly was also an ExtremeDoormat, but [[CharacterDevelopment she got over it]]. Also, John's [[BloodKnight an adrenaline junkie]]. And both are down-right sweet and [[{{Adorkable}} cute.]]
* ''Series/TheInspectorLynleyMysteries''' DS Barbara Havers - played by Creator/SharonSmall, she of the heart-shaped face and enormous green eyes - ''definitely'' qualifies as this, particularly since she is a "puppy" [[TheWoobie the world keeps kicking]]. Of course, unlike most kicked puppies, [[JerkassWoobie she]] [[{{Tsundere}} bites back]]... but she [[CharacterDevelopment gets over that]] eventually. ([[DeadpanSnarker Well]], [[SarcasticDevotee mostly]].) And that doesn't stop her 'kicked puppy look' from being one of the most effective on television.
* [[http://www.televisionheaven.co.uk/gidget.jpg Sally Field]] as ''Film/{{Gidget}}''. "If you're in doubt about angels being real..."
* [[ActionGirl Parker]], from ''Series/{{Leverage}}''. Partially as a result of her obviously DarkAndTroubledPast and partially as a result of her endearing CloudCuckooLander qualities, Parker's emotional pain seems to set off protective instincts in the entire team. Eliot even offers to kill a charlatan psychic for making her cry.
* ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'':
** ''Sometimes'' Shawn Hunter, but ''especially'' [[WholesomeCrossdresser when he's 'Veronica']] in "Chick Like Me" (S4 E15). She's just so shy and so happy to hear how pretty she is.
** Eric Matthews becomes more Moe [[WholesomeCrossdresser when he's ''Chantelle'']] in "What A Drag" (S7 E11). She's so sad when she is told that she's ugly, she actually cries for days until Topanga (not knowing Chantelle is Eric) says she has 'a beautiful spirit' after she gives her good relationship advice.
* [[Creator/ElisabethMoss Peggy Olsen]] on ''Series/MadMen''; even when she becomes successful, she's just so damn adorable, you want to hold her in your arms and never let go.
* Ambassador Delenn from ''Series/BabylonFive'', despite being one of the most powerful sentient beings in the galaxy and more than capable of commanding a war fleet, can turn absolutely [[CuteKitten kittenish]]. Witness her private moments with [[OfficialCouple John]] [[OneTrueLove Sheridan]], or any time she embarks on a passionately idealistic speech. This fits with her role as TheHeart, as she is easily the most dreamy, romantic character on the show. Creator/MiraFurlan's dreamy green eyes don't hurt, nor does the fact that her nose goes all adorably wrinkled when she's confused or [[WhenSheSmiles smiling]].
* Toshiko Sato, from ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' (although we first
see her character on a Ninth Doctor ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode). A HotLibrarian, {{Meganekko}}, [[ShrinkingViolet shy and timid]], and [[AllLoveIsUnrequited has been in love]] with her {{jerkass}} coworker for some time now, but has never been brave enough to pursue her affections.
* Joshua from ''Series/DarkAngel'' is an unexpectedly adorable ''Moe''. Maybe not in appearance, what with him being a seven-foot mutant dog-man. However, his sweet, gentle, idealistic personality and [[TheWoobie tragic story]] leave many just wanting to give him a big hug.
* Rather surprisingly, Creator/BenedictCumberbatch's performance as a very young UsefulNotes/StephenHawking in BBC's ''Film/{{Hawking}}'' inspires ''moe'' feelings in the female fanbase, at least if the comments on youtube and tumblr are at all indicative.
** Perhaps this isn't too surprising. Viewed in terms of tropes and not as a depiction of the history of theoretical physics, this is an {{Adorkable}} actor with a [[WhenHeSmiles beautiful smile]] playing a CuteGlassesBoy-StoicWoobie-IllBoy-[[LovableNerd nerd]] who uses [[GeekyTurnOn physics trivia]] and [[WaxingLyrical Beatles lyrics]] to flirt with the girl he likes.
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', the titular character. He's more than just {{Adorkable}}. He's also the certified TheWoobie and TheCutie to the upmost degree, especially in the eyes of the fandom.
** Sir Mordred. Why yes, ''[[KingArthur that]]'' [[BigBad Mordred]]. His younger self qualified as CreepyAwesome, but Mordred as an adult is an {{Adorkable}} [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee Arthur fanboy]] of the non-annoying variety who just wants to be the best Knight he can be. Plus, [[spoiler: it's Arthur's own fault when he [[FaceHeelTurn eventually turns on him]], and he remains sympathetic even as a villain]].
* Anna from ''TheVampireDiaries''.
** In season 4, April can qualify as well.
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'': [[spoiler: The Mother herself.]] Even more so when [[spoiler:Barney]] meets her and her eyes look like the size of dinner plates.
* ''Series/KatieMorag'' has little Liam. Katie Morag herself could also be this to some.
* Daisy the kitchen maid in ''Series/DowntonAbbey''.
* The {{Adorkable}} Detective Amy Santiago from ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'', who tends to act like a klutzy, bashful overgrown schoolgirl still running for high school valedictorian.
* Both versions of Astrid Farnsworth on ''Series/{{Fringe}}'', but especially the red-universe Astrid. She's emotionally withdrawn, socially awkward and is damaged by secrets
in her past, but eventually comes out of her shell to her blue-universe self -- who can't help but {{squee}} whenever she manages to make red-universe Astrid happy.
* Now-retired ''Series/{{Today}}'' weatherman [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willard_Scott Willard Scott]] is another early example.
* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': Felicity Smoak. Just look at her when she's hopped up on painkillers in "Time of Death". The sight of her giggling and slurring her speech in an oversized shirt is cute enough, but her pure joy at Oliver stroking her face and telling her [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments "You will always be my girl"]] is just CutenessOverload.
* ''Series/{{Supergirl|2015}}'': [[AllLovingHero Kara]] [[BadassAdorable Zor-El]] is basically a puppy in HumanAlien form.
"jammy jams".


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'': Doctor K. ShorterMeansSmarter meets WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds.
* ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'': Trip. Appears younger than the rest of his teammates (his actor, Kevin Kleinberg, was 17 when he got the part), has mild {{cloudcuckoolander}} tendencies, is [[GadgeteerGenius really good with tech]], his innocence once led to him falling for a villain's plan, and, most importantly, he is [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m8eqlrPxep1r2qdjeo5_500.png downright adorable]].
* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'': [[ShrinkingViolet John]] and Molly are ''both'' [[TheWoobie Woobies.]] Things do get better, and Molly was also an ExtremeDoormat, but [[CharacterDevelopment she got over it]]. Also, John's [[BloodKnight an adrenaline junkie]]. And both are down-right sweet and [[{{Adorkable}} cute.]]
* ''Series/SmallWonder'': Vicki, a RobotGirl living with her inventor and his family and making their lives a mess while being innocently cute. A rare American example of the theme.
* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'':
** [[http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Marlena_Moreau_(mirror) Marlena Moreau]] from the episode "Mirror, Mirror." So cute. So seemingly
[[ManipulativeBitch cold and calculating]], yet so [[TheWoobie abused and fragile]] under the skin.
** [[http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Gem Gem]] from the episode "The Empath." She never speaks a word, and all you see her do is take peoples' pain away like E.T.
** [[http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Jame_Finney Jame Finney]], the teenage daughter of one of Kirk's friends and a ''very'' emotional ShrinkingViolet UsefulNotes/{{Pettanko}} with blue eyes big enough to drown in and a pleated miniskirt that screams "[[SailorFuku schoolgirl]]". When she apologizes to Kirk so sheepishly, you just want to give her a big hug.
* ''Series/{{Supergirl|2015}}'': [[AllLovingHero Kara]] [[BadassAdorable Zor-El]] is basically a puppy in HumanAlien form.
* ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'': Cameron. The girl plays the {{Moe}} to maximum effect.
* ''Series/TinMan'':
** Azkadellia, the MagnificentBitch of the series, oddly enough has her Moe moments (Moements?). "[[{{Tearjerker}} Oh, Xora]]."
** Glitch has ''moe'' qualities for many fans, due to the combination of his adorably quirky personality and [[TheWoobie traumatic backstory.]]
%%* ''Series/{{Today}}'': Now-retired weatherman [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willard_Scott Willard Scott]] is another early example.
* ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'': Toshiko Sato. (although we first see her character on a Ninth Doctor ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode). A HotLibrarian, {{Meganekko}}, [[ShrinkingViolet shy and timid]], and [[AllLoveIsUnrequited has been in love]] with her {{jerkass}} coworker for some time now, but has never been brave enough to pursue her affections.
* ''Franchise/TrainMan'': Densha Otoko, the eponymous character's {{otaku}} friends mention the word "{{Moe}}" in front of Hermes, and Hermes, who is [[{{Muggles}} a normal human being]] and does not know what the word means, asks them, "{{Moe}}?" The friends think this is so {{Moe}} that they record her saying it.
* ''Series/UltramanMebius'': In a rare Live-Action LampshadeHanging, one of the GUYS' crew, Teppei Kuze, is the son of a rich family who has a maid named "Moe". The show also has a more straightforward example in Konomi Amagai, another member of the GUYS crew, a timid {{Meganekko}} who loves animals and children.
* ''Series/{{Victorious}}'': Cat Valentine is a lovable, ditzy, cheerful GenkiGirl played by Music/ArianaGrande. She also can be flirty but in a cute, innocent way.

* Howard's girlfriend Bernadette from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. Seriously, she's a short, adorable blonde who wears glasses and has an incredibly cute voice, she's like an assertive live-action [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Mikuru]] with slightly smaller breasts.
