[[folder: ''Western Animation/Buzz Lightyear Of Star Command'' ]]

* ''Fanfic/ForGood'' and ''Fanfic/{{One Hundred Days|BuzzLightyear}}'':
** Mira, especially when she and Buzz are being adorably awkward together [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial because they are most emphatically in love even if they're married]].
%% ** Buzz Lightyear (from ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' canon)

[[folder: ''Calvin And Hobbes'' ]]

* ''Fanfic/TheCalvinverse'' story ''Fanfic/RetroChill'' shows Retro's CowardlySidekick Bob to be this, as a ShrinkingViolet who is implied to be a BigBadWannabe (though he eventually pulls a HeelFaceTurn).

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cross Over ]]

* ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'', of all people, has his moments in ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime'', particularly once he's well and truly in love with Beth Lestrade of ''WesternAnimation/SherlockHolmesInTheTwentySecondCentury''. The following dialogue is from a largely serious conversation that descends briefly into a terribly cute moment:
-->'''Beth:''' (smiles sadly) So shut up, seriously.
-->'''Holmes:''' (blushes, closes his mouth meekly)
-->'''Beth:''' (giggles softly) You are such an idiot.
-->'''Holmes:''' (raises eyebrow) Are you expecting me to argue that point?
-->'''Beth:''' (laughs) Oh, look at that: you're actually learning! Don't worry -- you're my idiot, so it's all good. (tentative grin)
-->'''Holmes:''' (smiles back hesitantly) Am I?
-->'''Beth:''' (sighs in exasperation) Are you ''trying'' to prove my point?
-->'''Holmes:''' (sheepish grin) I seem to be confirming it further with every second word.
* ''[[Fanfic/DungeonKeeperAmi Dungeon Keeper Ami]]'' has [[spoiler: Empress Mercury]] who certinly counts, especially with the frequent MadScientist gag. From a fifteen-year-old it's very much so.

[[folder: ''Manga/Death Note'' ]]

* In ''FanFic/ACharmedLife'' Light Yagami is a huge nerd. He just happens to be an [[VillainProtagonist evil]] and [[HollywoodNerd handsome]] huge nerd who is [[MasterActor skilled at acting]] and is able to put up a charming front in public. In private however he can be quite a dork, for example when he looks to ''Franchise/StarTrek'' [[WhatWouldXDo for guidance in his life]].
* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7292991/1/Xanatos Xanatos]]'':
** Female example is [[OCStandIn Linda]], whose awkward stuttering and occasional shyness are just all too endearing.
** Near is adorkable when he carries on a phone conversation. NoSocialSkills, poor guy.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Hunger Games'' ]]

* ''Fanfic/SomeSemblanceOfMeaning'':
** Vale, the heroine, is a daydreamy, [[CuteBookworm book-loving]], [[CuteClumsyGirl fairly clumsy]] ShrinkingViolet who is a Type B {{Tsundere}} and is prone to [[LuminescentBlush blushing]].
** District One [[PrivilegedRival Career]] [[spoiler: and eventual victor]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Obsidian]] who, despite his initial displays of coolness, can be downright ''awkward'', especially when it comes to his LoveInterest--[[spoiler:Vale]]. See also: [[spoiler: his rehearsal of how he would propose an alliance with Vale, as well as plenty of the not exactly cool things he says once he and Vale actually do team up.]]

[[folder: ''The Lion King'' ]]

* Tojo in ''[[Fanfic/TheLionKingAdventures The Lion King Adventures]]''. He's a squeaky, geeky nerd. However, he's absolutely adorable. It's impossible not to love him.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Lucky Star'' ]]

* BrainyBrunette Chiyoko Sakamoto from the fanfics ''Fanfic/HolidayVacation'' and ''Fanfic/LuckyStarAfterStory'' is a dead ringer for being adorkable. She is an [[TheCutie adorable]] and [[TokenMiniMoe very short]] [[TeenGenius intellectual]] with [[InnocentBlueEyes huge blue eyes]] and she gets flustered very easily.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Franchise/Metal Gear'' ]]

* Otacon in ''Fanfic/{{Stray}}'' is the epitome of nerdy cuteness. Even a character who isn't his LoveInterest remarks on it.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Western Animation/My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic'' ]]

* Caramel of ''Fanfic/{{Assumptions}}'' becomes this trope whenever an attractive girl talks to him directly, constantly stuttering and flubbing his lines. Ironically, his main love interest grows fond of him since he doesn't act differently around her, though he does regress back into this after a few teases from her.
* Princess Luna's attempts to bond with her nephew in ''FanFic/CadenceInAMinor'' consist of [[DreamWalker wandering into his dreams]] and striking up conversations or startling him in hallways while he's in deep thought, and wondering [[NoSocialSkills why he's not always happy to see her.]] Still, she manages to be adorable anyway.
* The protagonist in ''FanFic/SophisticationAndBetrayal'' is awkward and dorky on many occassions. Luckily for him, his marefriend Rarity tends to find his awkwardness rather endearing.
* The nerdiness of Twilight and Luna gets dialled [[UpToEleven up to about fifteen]] in the fanfic ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/2792/Too-Intelligent-to-be-Loved Too Intelligent to be Loved]]'', and it is ''adorable''. In chapter 5, Twilight decides to throw a "science party" with events like Guess-That-Mold-Culture and All-You-Can-Titrate. Luna is so enthused at the prospect she begins spouting [[TotallyRadical seriously out-of-date]], [[{{Malaproper}} badly mishandled slang]] that she [[NotSoDifferent learned from a book entitled "1001 Idioms and Colloquialisms"]].
-->'''Luna:''' This is great! [[RoyalWe We]] cannot wait! Astronomical Observations! Telescope Calibration! And Trivia Pursuit! This should be a detonation! Is that the right wording? This should be a detonation?\\
'''Celestia''': íThis should be a blastí is more commonly used.
%% ** The Cutie Mark Crusaders' show was so cute and awkward!
* ''FanFic/TriptychContinuum'' has Twilight Sparkle, whose immediate reaction to seeing Rarity's eyes have changed colour is to start working out a comprehensive test for any changes in perception Rarity might have.
* ''FanFic/TheTwilightChild'':
** In Carrot Top's brief appearance, she mentions she once got so bored during Cider Season, which she usually spends on her own due to not being obsessive over apple cider, she started making dioramas out of carrots.
** Cadence borrows a page from Twilight Sparkle's book at one point when Celestia agrees to officiate her wedding, and she starts hopping in a circle.
* ''FanFic/WhatHathJoinedTogether'':
** Princess Twilight Sparkle is very enthusiastic about learning and typically cheerful, but she's pretty socially awkward and stammers when an event doesn't go as planned (like dropping her papers and forgetting to use her magic to pick them up due to embarrassment).
** Flash Sentry is typically well-composed, but when he's around his [[BodyguardCrush crush and protectee Twilight]] his grip on his emotions is loosened. When he unexpectedly bumps into Twilight in a hallway, he stumbles through his apology, bowed to her twice more than he should have, and then ran away to avoid making a bigger fool of himself, which is just one of the earliest examples.
* When we first meet Spark Wheel of ''Fanfic/WithoutAHive'', he's a sweet, awkward orphan colt who builds toy robots and flying machines out of junk at his orphanage. When we meet him again as an adult, he's been adopted by a wealthy family who sent him to a technical school, and now he's working on a ''real'' flying machine decades in advance of Equestrian technology. He's still sweet and awkward, though.

[[folder: ''Franchise/Pokemon'' ]]

* Cameron Taylor from ''FanFic/{{Pokeumans}}'' is a shy little awkward postman who can't tell his love interest that he has a crush on her. Then again, [[TookALevelInBadass he grows cooler with time.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Videogame/Portal'' ]]

* In the fanfic ''[[Fanfic/BlueSky Blue Sky]]'' (a ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' fic) the RidiculouslyHumanRobot [[spoiler:and his once [[WhiteCollarWorker human]] self]], Wheatley is portrayed this way. Being 6 feet 7 inches tall, lanky, clumsy, goofy, sweet (at his better moments), wears glasses, and [[MotorMouth is bound to go off on many ''many'' monologue style]] [[CloudCuckooLander tangents]].
* Wheatley in the ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' fic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6953776/1/Test_Of_Humanity Test Of Humanity]]'' after becoming a cyborg ([=GLaDOS=] implanted his "brain" into a human body ForScience). Tall, nerdy-looking, clumsy, noticeably chubby, yet friendly and well-meaning. Even [[spoiler:Chell]] admits she finds his awkward nature to be endearing and it's part of the reason [[spoiler:she falls in love with him.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Prince of Tennis'' ]]

* A lot of ''{{Prince of Tennis}}'' fanfiction involving [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Kaidou Kaoru]] involves him being like this in a relationship. [[spoiler: Well, the ones that don't [[SlashFic pair him up with]] [[TheRival Momo]]... Those are BelligerentSexualTension with Kaidou as {{Jerk with a Heart of Gold}} and Momo as a male Type B {{Tsundere}}.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Franchise/Sonic The Hedgehog'' ]]

* ''[[http://alwayshavingjuice.tumblr.com/post/23181778165/i-figured-that-since-most-of-the-non-robotic Silver]]'' from ''Blog/AlwaysHavingJuice'', a SonicTheHedgehog CharacterBlog set in a verse featuring elements from but presented differently from the games, the comics, and other media. Such as Silver the Hedgehog possibly the most adorable robot with a NiceHat you'll see all week.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Light Novel/Sword Art Online'' ]]

* In the semi-genderbent fanfic ''Fanfic/TheKiritaChronicles'', Kirigaya Kazuta, a.k.a. Kirita, the genderbent version of Kirito, has problems speaking with males. She tends to be more hesitant and stutters more when talking to them in comparison to how confident and strong she is when she is fighting monsters.

[[folder: Unsorted ]]

%% * The ''StateTanProject'' (A collaborative Fan Work for ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'') has Mississippi, Wisconsin, and California.
%% * Ignoring their CreepyChild shenanigans, both [[EnigmaticMinion Kaworu]] and [[EnsembleDarkhorse Kei]] (female example) can come off as this in ''FanFic/NobodyDies''.
%% * tecnicianMagician and constantThinker in the ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' FanFic ''FanFic/AdultStuck''.
%% * Princess Luna... [[http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lpqnq90Y6I1qincmao1_500.jpg in socks]]!
%% * [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-O5JeXy6NiY8/TvJwccme0rI/AAAAAAAAYwU/QIIV6vvpRds/s1600/101562+-+adorkable+ask+ask_filly_twilight+filly+twilight_sparkle.png Twilight makes a snowmare]].
%% * Adam Squall, the AuthorAvatar of ''Fanfic/RiseOfTheGaleforces'', if [[http://fav.me/d3jrbr5 his official artwork]] is anything to go by. May [[HoldYourHippogriffs Niobrara]] have mercy on your poor soul, however, if you call him a [[BerserkButton "dino]][[SomewhereAPalaeontologistIsCrying saur."]]
%% * Tavros, John, Jade, and Nepeta in ''Fanfic/{{Brainbent}}'' all qualify. Tavros' dorkiness is even lampshaded by the authors in his character introduction. Equius is a somewhat odd example, at least [[http://brainbent.tumblr.com/post/30886067793/feferi-wake-up from Feferi's point of view]]. Something about the combination of GentleGiant, ComicallySerious (with occasional lighter moments), and RealMenWearPink.
%% * The ''Blog/ReadingRainbowverse'':
%% ** Twilight Sparkle
%% ** Shining Armor's assistant Snowberry.
%% * The fanfic ''FanFic/BecauseImNotPopularIllTryToGoOutWithAHero'' has two examples.
%% ** [[{{SpiderMan}} Peter Parker]] is rather shy and awkward out of costume.
%% ** [[{{Watamote}} Tomoko Kuroki]] can be Adorkable, whenever she's not being a pervert or a JerkAss.
