%% Zero Context Example entries are not allowed on wiki pages. They have been commented out. Don't uncomment them unless you provide the context. What makes the character adorkable?
%% The list is alphabetised. Please add new examples accordingly.
* Gaige in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' has "Excessive Adorability" on her WantedPoster. She's a tiny, slightly built nerd with GirlishPigtails who speaks in LeetLingo, references ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', and built her very own robot to deal with bullies (and may have overengineered it a ''little''). One of her ECHO casts has her berate her father for bringing in cocoa while she's trying to come across as badass, then drink it anyway. This being ''Borderlands 2'', she's still a maniac who gets a PowerHigh from building Anarchy stacks, but she's still pretty cute.
* If you are a main character in a ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' game, you are probably some shade of Adorkable.
** Sora, especially in the first game. In the later games, he [[EmoTeen Takes A Level In Emo]], but he still has a distinct boyish enthusiasm and optimism.
** Ventus is possibly even more adorkable than Sora [[spoiler: given his nature]], which is only highlighted when he interacts with Zack and Hercules.
** Riku gets a shade of this in ''Dream Drop Distance'' when Shiki starts flirting with him and he's utterly flabbergasted. Lampshaded when she asks if he "gets out much".
%%** Roxas and Xion, when they're not having their bouts of melancholy, take after Sora and Ven (obviously.)
%%** Demyx fits in the fandom's eyes, though he's more of a lazy jackass in canon.
%%** Lea in ''Dream Drop Distance''.
%%* Lucca in ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'':
** Azelle from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar'' is cute and shy.
** ''FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'':
*** Canas has everything the trope needs. [[NerdGlasses Nerdy monocle?]] Check. [[NoSocialSkills Talks too much with awkward pauses and casual stuttering]]? Check. Cute VerbalTic? Check (Says "Ah/Oh" before any sentence). [[{{Moe}} Overly polite and smiles all the time?]] Check.[[http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080707162200/fireemblem/images/4/44/Canas.jpg Official artwork]] as TheKlutz? [[OverlyLongGag Check check check...]]
*** Erk's SugarAndIcePersonality results in a lot of cuteness whenever his solemn and taciturn demeanor cracks.
** Soren in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance'' if the player bothers to dig up his back story to go along with his personality.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'':
*** There's [[TheStoic Lon'qu]], who is a total badass on the battlefield and turns into a stuttering mess whenever he's near a woman.
*** "[[CoolMask Marth]]!" [[spoiler:[=/=] Lucina]], who is a ''complete'' badass [[OneManArmy capable of solo'ing entire chapters]] but turns into a socially-awkward wreck of pure huggability when put into any kind of social situation.
*** SociallyAwkwardHero Chrom tends to become a shy, nervous, adorkable mess during his romantic supports. He ''cannot'' keep his foot out of his mouth around women (especially [[PlayerCharacter Robin]]).
*** Stahl is adorkable due to his [[RidiculouslyAverageGuy ridiculously average]] NiceGuy nature (albiet one with [[BigEater a monstrous appetite]]).
*** There's also [[spoiler: Priam, the descendant of the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Hero of the Blue Flames]]]]. Of course, he's a massive badass with a great skill set, but when he starts developing feelings for a Female Robin, he starts [[LuminescentBlush blushing like mad]] and even yells "HUZZAH!" when she returns his feelings.
*** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'':
*** Takumi and Leo are both strong contenders. While they each try to project an aura of maturity, they are actually quite dorky. Takumi turns into a stuttering mess during his supports with [[spoiler:[[MsFanservice Camilla]]]], clearly shows his fear of the Faceless over his vehement denials, and is generally easy to fluster with compliments. Despite his perfectionist tendencies, Leo has the odd habit of accidentally wearing his clothes inside out and completely freaks out when it is brought up. In his attempts to have his older siblings praise him, he also often comes off as a starving puppy.
*** Our protagonist Corrin. While he/she has a great amount of skill and charisma as a warrior, s/he's ''so'' socially inept but ''so'' well-meaning it comes across as endearing. And then you have him/her S-support someone and watch him/her either a) fluster his/her way through a confession or b) get extraordinary flustered by their confession.
* ''VideoGame/SunsetOverdrive'' gives us Wendy, a Latina looking {{LARP}} player into acting as TheBard, dressing as a pirate captain, into rock and roll, and voiced by Creator/LauraBailey.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'':
** Lloyd has won many a fangirl for his innocent, boyish charm.
** Colette. She's clumsy at times, but extremely sweet-natured and caring.
%% ** Genis screams this trope in his interactions with [[SugarAndIcePersonality Presea]].
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'':
** Luke, [[spoiler: once he cuts his hair]], gets rather adorkable with his sudden dependency on others and embarrassed social moments.
%%** Guy Cecil, occasionally. ''Especially'' when he nerds out over fon machines.
* ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'':
** Katsuya Suou from ''VideoGame/Persona2'': ''Eternal Punishment'' is a cop who wonders if the penal code applies to demons, and ''he will even interrogate them as a contact option!'' Her also has a HUGE crush on [[spoiler: Maya Amano]], and because he's got a crippling case of CannotSpitItOut, he calls her [[spoiler: Ms. Amano]], even towards the end of the game.
** ''VideoGame/Persona3'':
*** Unexpectedly, Akihiko Sanada - who initially comes across as a cool, self-assured upperclassman and is the most sought-after boy at Gekkoukan High School - turns out to be ''completely'' adorkable when it comes to actually interacting with girls outside of SEES. The PSP re-release turns it UpToEleven by making him a possible love interest for the female protagonist.
*** Shinjiro Aragaki, of all people, also turns out to have a bit of this going on thanks to a hidden love of animals and cooking shows, though he's more a gruffly SugarAndIcePersonality than outright dorky. Again, it's played up in the PSP version thanks to his Social Link in the female main character's route.
*** Theodore, Igor's male assistant in the PSP version (if you play as the female protagonist) is smooth and calm in the Velvet Room, but if you take him out to explore the human world, he quickly shows himself to be this, with his FishOutOfWater tendencies and his childlike wonder and uncertainty about the ways of the human world (to say nothing of him being SarcasmBlind).
** ''VideoGame/Persona4'':
*** This is the common reaction to Naoto Shirogane despite (or because of) the fact that she is a girl. Normally speaks in a very mature and intellectual fashion, but can start gushing over anything that relates to her interests in detective novels, solving mysteries, action figures and tokatsu shows; her own Dungeon in the TV World is noted as looking like something out of a sentai or tokatsu series, her Shadow appears as a sentai-ish half-cyborg, and even her Personas have that sort of motif. She also gets very easily flustered in social situations, and really gets shy if the player takes her romance path.
*** Though she normally comes off as a straight-up martial arts loving BigEater {{tomboy}}, Chie Satonaka is pretty adorkable as well as you pursue her Social Link and [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak discover her more feminine traits]]. She breaks down and starts awkwardly crying in the middle of Junes after Yosuke and the protagonist's second expedition to the TV World, she freaks out when Nanako chirps that there's a grasshopper on Chie's back, and she gets very shy and prone to blabbering during her romance scenes.
** From ''VideoGame/Persona5''
*** As a recovering shut-in, Futaba is very [[NoSocialSkills socially awkward]] and a bit of a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} to the point where it became endearing. She is also a huge fan of video games, and makes a bunch of references to them. She gets especially adorable should the player romance her, as once Joker confesses his love to her, she gets incredibly flustered around him, to the point that she completely shuts down for a good eight to nine text boxes.
*** Haru's introduction as a [[UnknownRival "rival thief"]] to the Phantom Thieves is full of it. She actually gets stage fright during her first encounter with them because she hadn't yet thought of a code name for herself and couldn't remember the script she'd prepared with Morgana beforehand.
*** Like Naoto, Makoto has a pretty serious personality, but she shows shades of this as well. During the Madarame arc (as well as the start of the Kaneshiro arc), she started following Joker around with a manga magazine that she obviously isn't reading. She is also shown to be [[GirlsAreReallyScaredOfHorrorMovies scared of some "spooky" things]] as when the Phantom Thieves broke into the Sakura house, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVADRJknY58 this happens]]. Even in battle, one of her three possible quotes at the end of her All-Out-Attack is her shouting "FIST OF JUSTICE!" in a hilariously hammy manner.
*** Ryuji tends to get overexcited when talking about upcoming plans for the Phantom Thieves. Ann plays the StraightMan during these moments and shuts him up before he starts yelling about being wanted criminals in public.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'':
*** Zack Fair in the Compilation, especially the prequels ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' and ''VideoGame/BeforeCrisis''. Zack is one of the strongest characters in the series, but he STILL manages to have oh so many adorably silly moments. Even pre-Nibelheim (i.e., sane) Sephiroth apparently isn't immune to Zack's adorkable qualities, as seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feQQ_OUqbXE here]].
*** Cloud and Tifa can both be rather adorkable at times, when they aren't moping about. Especially when moments of sexual tension hit and their shyness and discomfort comes out full blast.
*** Aerith with her [[PluckyGirl incurable optimism]], [[DeadpanSnarker snarkiness]], and punctuated by [[CrowningMomentOfFunny her bizarre rescue plan in Wall Market]]. She tends to flitter between this and ManicPixieDreamGirl.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'':
*** Vivi. He's sweet, kind, TheWoobie, clumsy, and adorable. He fits this like a glove.
*** Zidane may act like a total flirt, but deep down, he's this. Particularly the way he acts around Garnet/Dagger and his boyish attitude.
** Tidus from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' is cheerful, a total Keet, and CannotSpitItOut in front of Yuna. Square Enix loves this trope.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'': Snow freakin' Villiers. Big, tough, friendly, cheerful, boyish hopeless romantic... aww. (Someone at Creator/SquareEnix definitely loves this trope.)
* ''Franchise/MetalGear'':
** Big Boss (mostly in his younger appearances). He [[CompanionCube irrationally loves boxes]], is scared by horror movies, and believes in Santa because he brought him presents. There's also a scene in ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater Snake Eater]]'' where he geeks out over a [[GunPorn highly-modified]] M1911 pistol... [[IgnoreTheFanservice ignoring]] the half-naked woman that brought him the gun in the first place.
** Otacon, ''especially'' in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4''. His backstory and the events of the game make him a huge {{Woobie}}, and he becomes easily flustered and has a soft manner of speaking. He has crushes on both Sniper Wolf in the first game and Naomi in the fourth [[spoiler:who both end up dying in front of him as he cries pathetically]].
** Ocelot could almost be considered this in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'', where he appears as a young GRU Major who tries incredibly hard to be cool, from adopting his signature [[RevolversAreJustBetter revolver]] at a young Big Boss' suggestion to doing incredibly complex and almost silly GunTwirling.
** For both Otacon and Ocelot, the {{Webcomic/Hiimdaisy}} comics dialed this trait UpToEleven, making Otacon even more of a {{Woobie}} and Ocelot into a ButtMonkey who makes his [[WordOfGay crush]] on Big Boss even more obvious.
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** Shad from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' -- a few fans have speculated that he may be some sort of Hyrulean {{Expy}} of Otacon. He's also supposedly very similar to Nintendo of America translator Bill Trinen; goodness only knows what that says about Bill.
** Link from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''. His toon design, closeness with his little sister, as well as his overall expressions help generate this.
** Link at the beginning of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'', notably when he is with Zelda, who seems to have this opinion of him when he holds up her sailcloth. By the end, he has taken several hundred thousand [[TookALevelInBadass levels in badass.]]
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' has not only Link, but Princess Zelda herself. Link hums while cooking and cheers when his meal is finished, sometimes has the option to make pretty corny puns and, if he isn't wearing a shirt, will take time to admire him physique in a very humorous fashion. Princess Zelda is a BadassBookworm who, upon seeing a frog, catches up to it on her knees and presents it to Link with a "Ta-Dah!" before excitedly trying to convince Link to eat it to study its effects.
%% * From ''{{VideoGame/Xenoblade}}'', [[TheHero Shulk]] fits the bill rather well.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** Tali'Zorah in the [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 second game]]. Particularly if you play a male Shepard and go for the romance with her. Not to mention her hitting TheWoobie status during her loyalty mission.
** Garrus Vakarian. As above, playing a Shepard of the opposite gender and romancing him makes this particularly noticeable, but it's present all the same.
** If you didn't romance either of the above, they [[PairTheSpares hook up]] in [[VideoGame/MassEffect3 part three]]. The scene where you catch them together may set off your CutenessProximity.
** Liara T'Soni, who is able to be romanced by both sexes. A good portion of her romance in the first game has her being easily flustered by Shepard's romances and accidentally, and quite humorously, putting her foot in her mouth. Both attributes were found adorable. And, a lot like Tali, she's a massive [[TheWoobie woobie.]]
** Legion, if you talk to him and ask why he's wearing your old armor. He reacts with what seems to be the geth version of a blush and then says: [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove "No data available."]]
** Samantha Traynor, the chess-loving comm specialist in the third Mass Effect game, fits this definition to a T. Sadly, for those playing the male Shepard, she's lesbian, but if you play the female version, she does a lot more than just play chess with Shepard.
** Maya Brooks in the ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' "Citadel" DLC, maybe more so than any other character in the franchise. At least [[spoiler: she appears to be.]]
** The [[spoiler:humanoid version]] of EDI in [=ME3=], especially in her awkward attempts at humor, her nerdy responses to questions like "What are you thinking?" and, definitely, her adorkable [[spoiler: attempts at AI/human romance with Joker]].
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'': Luigi becomes more Adorkable every game. He's clumsier than his better-renowned brother, sometimes speaks with a stutter, and often made a ButtMonkey, but he does get his time to shine both with the rest of the cast and among the fanbase.
* ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''. Koops, the poor awkward little Koopa who lost his confidence after [[ItMakesSenseInContext his dad got eaten by a dragon]]. Despite his quirks--nay, ''because'' of them--he's got quite a large crowd of fan girls.
* Within the small fandom for ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil,'' TheBigGuy Double H has a not-insignificant FanGirl following due to his bumbling-but-sweet goofball-spy nature. His adorkability is especially pronounced due to [[TopHeavyGuy what]] [[SpaceMarine he]] ''[[OlderSidekick is.]]''
* Jeff from ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', with that suit, glasses, bow tie, bowl haircut....and he has TONS of fangirls. Lloyd from the prequel counts, too.
%%* This trait is undoubtedly a good part of [[VideoGame/JakAndDaxter Daxter's]] charm.
* From ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'':
** Noel Vermillion. She writes poetry, but gets embarrassed reading it to others. She loves pandas. She is constantly apologising to people (in a sweet way, not an annoying way). She's one of the cutest girls in video games, and the most awkward.
** Makoto Nanaya, on top of [[MsFanservice being smoking hot]], is very much a big kid at heart, having a love for dinosaurs, HumongousMecha, and sweets.
** Humorously (and tragically enough only briefly), [[NinetiesAntiHero Ragna]] in this exchange in Rachel's ''Chronophantasma'' gag reel, when Celica admits to having a crush on him:
--->'''Celica''': "I like Ragna? Of course I like Ragna! You didn't know that?"
--->''Ragna''': "Well... I-I didn't think you ''hated'' me, but... when you put it so frankly, I... I'm getting embarrassed, here."
%%** Tsubaki Yayoi, mostly due to CannotSpitItOut with Jin.
* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'':
** Being one part DatingSim, no game is complete without at least one single character who falls into this category. Among both males and females and across the series, they include HotLibrarian Mary, shy [[TheWoobie Woobie]] Cliff, [[{{Megane}} Meganekun]] Rick, Louis, and Elliot, Mary {{Expy}} Sabrina, Shea, Luke (both of which aren't ''nerdy'' but are definitely both hilariously and cutely awkward), and ShrinkingViolet Candace.
** ''VideoGame/StoryOfSeasons'' introduces Nadi - the {{Tsundere}} archetype who's ridiculously sweet and goofy at times, and Lillie, the cheerful and outgoing weather girl who stammers and blushes ''extremely'' easily when matters involving love come up.
** [[spoiler:Kuruna]] in the spinoff ''VideoGame/RuneFactory3'' has moments of this. [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Usually around cake and chocolate.]]
* ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'':
** Ellis. He's a fairly outgoing {{Keet}}, but he gets so adorably tongue-tied talking to Zoey.
** Louis, with his eternal optimism in the face of zombie hordes, hopeless odds, soul crushing despair and Francis, would seem to qualify.
* [[VideoGame/LegoCityUndercover Lego City Undercover]] has Frank Honey, the hilariously inept police officer who has boundless optimism and a almost puppy-like excitement for his job despite screwing up pretty much every assignment he's given.
* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** Apollo Justice. His fear of everything and style of lawyering makes him so stupidly cute one begins to wonder how he became a lawyer in the first place. Also, he fanboys over Phoenix [[spoiler: until finding out he forged evidence]], and his excitement over talking to Vera could be comparable to a high school student on a first date.
** Adrian Andrews takes CuteClumsyGirl to a whole new level by breaking the Kurain Sacred Urn by dropping it in ''paint''. There's also her dependency, which makes her follow the advice of someone else and imitate their personality (as seen with her mentor, Celeste Inpax). Plus, the way she tries to act all tough-as-nails like her mentor makes her more of an example of SugarAndIcePersonality rather than your typical {{Stoic}}.
** Miles Edgeworth often behaves as adorable dork, especially when it comes to trying to loosen up and when he interacts with his [[ClosetGeek not-so-secret love of the Steel Samurai]].
** Ron [=DeLite=]. This guy loses his cool whenever his wife flirts with him, and has a hard time talking without trailing off. He may act like a GentlemanThief, but he's really this deep down, especially his reaction on getting a letter from his wife, Desirée.
** Phoenix Wright himself qualifies as well, to some extent. Especially when he's younger and with a cold. One such example is when he tries talking to Iris. He can barely keep his cool (because she's the twin sister of his former ex-girlfriend) [[spoiler: Actually, she impersonated Dahlia and was really the true "Dollie" Phoenix adored.]] He also denies being a fan of the Steel Samurai, despite having numerous merchandise, much like Edgeworth. Let's face it, this man is just as adorkable, if not more so than Edgeworth due to his regular display of awkwardness.
** Franziska von Karma isn't immune, either, once she starts to [[DefrostingIceQueen defrost]]. Though, her moments are much more subtle than the others. At one point in Case 3-5, she asks Phoenix (in a ''completely sincere'' tone, based on his inner commentary when he answers her) if there used to be a lively port town along a river... which is at the bottom of a deep canyon in the mountains. Phoenix notes in the same case that "she's so openly hostile, it's almost cute", which implies that at this point, she's actively trying to be as [[{{Tsundere}} tsun tsun]] as possible. She's strongly implied to have a severe InferioritySuperiorityComplex thanks to her father and brother, and once you see [[BeneathTheMask behind the mask]] to that insecure side, she's a slightly awkward young girl with a poor understanding of emotions, something even her [[TheStoic stoic]] brother, Miles, understands.
%%* Hahn Mahlay from ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarIV''.
* In ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'', it turns out that most of the Imperial Army fits under this description, but none more than emotionally vulnerable, heartbreakingly kind and eager-to-please Gulcasa at age 17. [[UnwantedHarem His allies (and even some of his enemies!) seem to think so too]].
* Wheatley from ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''. He's a [[CloudCuckooLander scatterbrained]], [[MotorMouth talkative]], friendly little personality core with a British accent (voiced by Creator/StephenMerchant!) who fails at hacking and is a huge CowardlyLion. [[spoiler:Of course, it all goes to hell later, but he's still [[{{Adorkable}} Adorkably]] [[AffablyEvil Evil]].]]
%%* ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence'': Luca Milda.
* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'':
** 10 of Spades, a FriendlySniper. He's the shortest character in the game, one of the friendliest, has a stutter, and wears thick NerdGlasses.
** Arcade Gannon has shades of this, especially when [[StraightGay you use the Confirmed Bachelor perk]], or when [[BadLiar he tries to play dumb]] and cover up his involvement with [[spoiler: the Enclave.]]
--> '''Arcade (when asked about his familiarty with vertibirds):''' ''(shifty eyes)'' Uh, what does ''anyone'' know about them? Big... flying machines, right? ''(nervous laugh)'' Crazy helicopters. So ''weird.''
* Rief in ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn''. [[TheQuietOne Soft-spoken]], [[GentlemanAndAScholar scholarly]], wears NerdGlasses and a [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair bowl cut]], and if his intro scene is anything to go by, he has a touch of the {{Keet}} and a bad sense of self-preservation, as his reaction to a Psynergy Vortex is to get excited and [[DontTouchItYouIdiot take a closer look]].
* Travis Touchdown from ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'', when he's outside of missions, he's like a big grown up nerd who has to keep on doing his best to live a normal life despite being a total badass assassin.
%%* Lucas from ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' has shades of this, as a {{NPC}}.
%%** ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' brings us Cilan, and if you're not put off by his bizarre personality, N.
%%** Bianca as well.
%%** And Shauntal of the Elite Four, mostly because of her ShrinkingViolet tendencies, NerdGlasses, and polite demeanor.
%%* In ''{{Morenatsu}}'', almost all the male interests. Konousuke, in particular, but it's part of the overall appeal.
%%* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'': Laguna [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Loire]], his relationships with both of his love interests are almost based on this.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'':
** Yuri Lowell, while not a shining example of this due to the serious nature of the story and his role in it most of the time, has his moments in several skits and scenes, especially when interacting with fellow party members Karol and Estelle.
** Karol who gets excited about guilds and her heroes and has a PrecociousCrush on Nan.
** Estelle, geeking out over guilds, books and ancient history.
%%* ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'': Bottles the Short-Sighted Mole.
%%* ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'': Rodent.
* Creator/BioWare really seems to like this trope; ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' features several companions for player characters of varying degrees of this trope. Watch the dorkiness be [[UpToEleven cranked up to eleven]] if the romance option is taken.
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'':
** Alistair. From the way he quips at Morrigan, to his stories about teasing the cloistered monks who raised him. He's also a templar trained to murder mages who turn into abominations.
** Leliana is incredibly adorkable, especially in her romance sub-plot. She's extraordinarily girly and goofy for someone who's trained in the arts of [[spoiler: theft, seduction and murder]]. She also can acquire a nug and name it "Schmooples".
** Zevran displays dorky attractiveness if you venture into his romance sub plot. Normally a dashing Lothario, cold to emotions as his assassin life requires him to be, actual love is something he's not used to dealing with and it shows.
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' continues the tradition with Merrill, who's a sweet, shy MotorMouth who's ObliviousToLove, tends to put her foot in her mouth, and is an [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny easily distracted]] CloudCuckoolander prone to non sequitur observations ("I see sparrows in the rafters!"). She's also a FishOutOfWater, obsessed with her research into elven history ([[BreadEggsMilkSquick and dark magics]]), and a [[TheExile social outcast]] and {{Woobie}} who just gets woobier as the game progresses.
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' has, believe it or not, [[LadyOfWar Cassandra]]. Once the player grows closer to her, either as friends or a LoveInterest, she lets her tough exterior down and reveals an idealistic romantic underneath. This becomes especially apparent when it's revealed that she's a huge fan of Varric's books, and particularly his smutty romance serials, which he considers to be his worst work.
** Cullen, the commander of the Inquisition's military, is as adorkable in personal matters as he is confident on the battlefield. This is only pronounced if he is romanced but if he is, the guy has this in spades. Amusingly, [[PlayerCharacter the Inquisitor]] who romances him has almost the same level of adorkability - a rare thing for a Creator/BioWare protagonist.
** The ''Jaws of Hakkon'' DLC adds Professor Bram Kenric, a visiting staff member from the University of Orlais. He makes terrible jokes, gets so absorbed in his reading that he has to be stopped from walking off ledges while his nose is stuck in a book, and gushes excitedly about history. He's also very cute with a lovely Scottish accent, and according to Scout Harding (with whom he has some slight ShipTease), he makes a delightful noise when startled.
* Guybrush Threepwood from the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' PC game series is quintessentially adorkable. His first line ever includes an overly exuberant "I wanna be a pirate!" - immediately exposing his adorkable lack of gruff and tough pirate attitude. In his first meeting with the beautiful pirate governor Elaine, he loses all power to speak coherently, uttering words like "blggw" and "dmnkly" (as the game was initially released in 1990, the jokes were in text).
%%* Edgar in ''VideoGame/TheAct''. Totally shy but sweet.
* Hikami Itaru from ''VisualNovel/TokimekiMemorialGirlsSide 2'', an intelligent, hard-working, glasses-wearing stickler for the rules who is quite a bit awkward when it comes to girls. If there was ever any doubt, he earns this role in an early CG when the protagonist comes across him wearing a ''very'' dorky looking helmet. When she asks, he simply says that it's part of the school rules to wear them and seems confused by the very question.
* If you're patient, lucky and adventurous in ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces,'' you can catch [[TheStoic Hubert]] becoming this, usually either because of [[UptightLovesWild Pascal]]... or the Sunscreen Rangers:
-->'''Hubert:''' Tonight we feast on dead seafood! Pow Pow!
* ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'':
** Omid. He's worried about his cat during a zombie apocalypse and he's probably the most cheerful character in the game.
%%** {{Downplayed}} with Lee. While he's a mostly a badass ScaryBlackMan, he [[http://youtu.be/gFYeGWwia6Q?t=13m50s has his moments]].
* ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'':
** The title character, in both original and Legend series incarnations. The original Spyro was [[MouthyKid headstrong and arrogant]]; despite being the [[KidAppealCharacter youngest and littlest]] dragon in the Dragon Realms, which made him a lovable KidHero. The [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro Legend series]] Spyro became even more adorkable from being voiced by Creator/ElijahWood. He was a sweet, intelligent dragon who was always willing to help anyone.[[spoiler: And this is despite learning about where he truly came from and who he truly is -- TheChosenOne. He is suddenly told that he is a rare purple dragon and it is his destiny to save the entire world! On such short notice as well, considering he just learned he was [[LastOfHisKind one of the only dragons left]] and was actually [[HappilyAdopted adopted by dragonflies!]] ]]
** Bianca the bunny, who starts out as the BigBad's #2 lackey. Watching her try to act threatening in spite of her obviously meek, clumsy nature is more cute and funny than anything else. Naturally, this gets her [[MinionWithAnFInEvil a failing grade in Evil]], but makes it that much easier for her to pull a HeelFaceTurn when she realizes just ''how'' bad her boss actually is.
* Riki, the protagonist of ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters''. Shy, [[DudeLooksLikeALady girly-looking]] IllBoy {{Woobie}} who is perfectly polite and earnest when it comes to the girls around him but has problems with getting out of the shadow and safety of his [[ChildhoodFriend childhood friends]] and gets [[LuminescentBlush easily flustered]] whenever anyone teases him? It's no wonder so many girls end up hanging around him.
* Lara Croft in ''VideoGame/TombRaider2013''. [[BreakTheCutie Despite all the hell she's put through]], she continues to display a giddy enthusiasm for the various artifacts and historical sites she discovers over the course of the game.
* A ''lot'' of Leon S. Kennedy's appeal in the ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' franchise is thanks to him being such a loveable dork and such a complete badass at the exact same time, though it [[DependingOnTheWriter varies from game to game]]. He's at his absolute adorkablest in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' with his [[LampShading deadpan lampshading]] and his cheesy [[OneLiner One-Liners]].
--> '''Salazar:''' I've sent my right hand to dispose of you.
--> '''Leon:''' Your right hand comes off?
* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' gives us Sherry Birkin who, despite being a rather badass government agent in the same agency as Leon above, still manages to act like an adorkable high school nerd (Maybe it's hiring policy or something). It ''really'' shows when she's put with the sarcastic and snide {{Foil}} that is Jake Muller, such as when escaping an avalanche on snowmobiles:
--> '''Jake:''' God must ''really'' hate us today!
--> '''Sherry:''' Just keep going! We'll make it! Anyway, uh, I don't hate you!
--> '''Jake:''' [[SarcasmMode Aw great! That helps!]]
* ''VideoGame/NamcoHigh'':
** Cousin, who has a good heart and isn't all that skilled at communicating clearly, comes off as this during most of the romances, especially the most awkward bits - stumbling, misunderstanding things, failing to get concepts out clearly, and especially failing to understand what's going on in many situations.
** Enthusiastic, chipper, skeptical and somewhat overzealous would-be gumshoe [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Jane]], especially when blundering through inept conversations about weirdness she refuses to accept even exists;
** Meowkie, who has a near-perpetual awkward grimace and visible sweat, but is also adorable and extremely enthusiastic about her hall monitor duties (and [[TrademarkFavoriteFood tuna]]);
** Anti-Bravoman, whose overly dramatic and shadowy attitude hides someone who really, really loves to write terrible poetry;
** Military history nerd, bundle of nerves and bully target #1 Blue Max, whose pilot style does not prevent him from being forced to do Taira's homework. For bonus points, his grasp of military lingo includes phrases like "noon hundred hours (that's noon o'clock to you civilians)."
* ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'': Pit, despite being a competent fighter, has an upbeat and somewhat childish personality. He likes to look tough, but he's such a cute kid that you usually can't help but chuckle at his attempts. When [[spoiler:Phosphora]] flirts with him, Pit just loses all composure and forms a LuminescentBlush, to the point where [[MissionControl Palutena]] has to remind him that [[spoiler:Phosphora]] is his enemy. It's no wonder the other characters [[ButtMonkey make fun of him so much.]] [[spoiler: But when the [[KnightOfCerebus Chaos Kin]] shows up, it's a surprise Pit isn't in a HeroicBSOD and still fights. When you see everything Pit's standing for [[BreakTheCutie falling apart]], [[TheWoobie you just want to give him a hug.]]]]
* Kormac, your Templar companion in ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' is usually a gung-ho warrior who is all about justice and protecting the innocent. But whenever he's around Eirena, the Enchantress of the group, he instantly becomes a shy, tongue-tied, adorable mess who CannotSpitItOut.
* ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'': The Phone Guy ends up lapsing into this trope when he's talking about how much he loves the animatronics.
* Wonder-Yellow from ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101'', despite being a [[HuskyRusskie muscular Russian]] [[FourStarBadass war veteran]] with a [[DropTheHammer massive hammer,]] is incredibly shy, and will often gain [[LuminescentBlush blush stickers]] on his cheeks and begin stammering when he gets nervous. He's also implied to be a FriendToAllChildren.
* Graham, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/KingsQuest2015'', was quite conventionally attractive as a young lad, [[NonActionGuy if a little on the scrawny side]], and he had this rather amusing habit of excitedly bouncing around and waving his arms while speculating the awesome properties of some cool things he faces on his adventures, such as that [[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon huge impressive-looking scythe]] in [[ActionGirl Amaya]] [[TheBlacksmith Blackstone]]'s forge [[spoiler:that turns out to be just an overly ornate hedgetrimmer which gets discarded after one use]] and that strange potion being brewed in the [[CoolOldGuy Hobblepot]]'s potion shop [[spoiler:which turns out to be tooth-whitening agent... that just turns everything purple unless Graham can get them the right ingredients]].
** Quite humourously, Neese, [[DecompositeCharacter one of the two Princesses Valanice]] and possible love interest for Graham who makes an appearance in Episode 3, is this trope in ''[[StrangeMindsThinkAlike exactly]]'' [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike the same manner as Graham is]], even down to throwing the same excited fits.
-->'''Neese''': Are we... ''Are we''... Are we having ''an adventure''!? [[MotorMouth Are we going to solve riddles of a Sphinx!? Is there going to be a labyrinth with a minotaur!? Will there be hijinks and will they involve bridles and snakes!?]] [[MundaneMadeAwesome CAN WE GET MATCHING FEATHERS!!??]]... Hehe, um, please?
* A few characters from the ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' series may count as this: The biggest is Isabelle, your assistant in ''New Leaf''. Always eager to help you out in Mayoral duties, but can be a bit scatterbrained. Blathers the owl is often seen sleeping, but will talk your ear off if you donate something to the museum. He's also terrified of insects. Quite a few of the villagers may also count as some of them, like the Cranky, Snooty or Smug villagers, who try to put on an air of aloofness or crabbiness, but can be real softies once befriended.
* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''
** The best representation would be Alphys, Asgore's head scientist. She's incredibly awkward and shy, and is very uncomfortable speaking about anything. She's also extremely friendly once she comes out of her shell.
** Papyrus, [[NoIndoorVoice VERY LOUD]] SmallNameBigEgo Royal Guard hopeful. Because, despite those, he's genuinely nice, friendly, and naive. He's the only character who is incapable of killing you (not from lack of strength, but he's too nice). He also sleeps in a racecar bed, owns a bunch of action figures, believes in Santa, loves cooking spaghetti, and if you befriend him he will do everything he can to get you and Undyne to be friends.
** [[spoiler:King Asgore Dreemurr]], who may look scary and intimidating at first, but is, in Papyrus' words, a "big fuzzy pushover". He loves having tea, gardening flowers, and is a notorious GiverOfLameNames.
** Undyne is mostly badass, but she does have shades of adorkableness, as she genuinely believes anime is real human history.
* Piper Wright, IntrepidReporter to the Commonwealth Wastelands in ''VideoGame/Fallout4'', puts on the air of a cocky, devil-may-care journalist who'll leave no stone unturned in her quest for the truth. However, she quickly turns into a flustered, stuttering, babbling wreck whenever the PlayerCharacter successfully flirts with her. Certain dialogue options also reveal her to be a bit of a comic book geek.
* ''Franchise/{{Lunar}}'' series:
** Alex is a Dragonmaster fanboy who gets to live his dreams and become an awesome hero. Despite this he is humble to the point of bashfulness and lets his girlfriend boss him around. Though that's probably wise [[spoiler:since she is a [[PhysicalGod goddess incarnate]].]]
** Hiro, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue'', likewise is a fan of Dragonmaster Alex. At one point, he talks a friend into playing lookout for him so he can get on the helm of a certain CoolBoat and pretend he's Dragonmaster Alex without anyone making fun of him. Of course, this is actually just pretext -- Hiro's ''actually'' after a one-on-one chat with his love interest. But it wouldn't have worked if he didn't like to pretend he's Dragonmaster Alex sometimes.
** White Knight Leo starts out as a stern and capable commander (though frequently PlayedForLaughs). As the story progresses, he softens up and shows a really considerate and cute side -- he has a weird fixation on justice and being a super-hero. When he is forced to choose between the letter of the law or the spirit of the law during a major turning-point of the story, [[spoiler:he puts on a funny mask and pretends to be a vigilante named "Mystere" instead. His reactions as everyone, one by one, see through his terrible disguise are ridiculous and cute.]]
* Most of the characters of the ''VideoGame/MySims'' series qualify, but it '''especially''' holds true for any Sim who has [[{{Geek}} Geeky]] as a primary or secondary Interest.
** To put it into perspective: two of the most popular characters are [[CuteClumsyGirl Buddy]] and [[{{Goth}} Goth Boy]]. Buddy's primary Interest is Geeky (and has plenty of traits that drive it home), while Goth Boy has it as his secondary (and could probably be seen in his melodramatic nature and love of poetry).
* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has Reinhardt and Mei. Reinhardt is a 61-year-old man who loves listening to classics like the Hoff, reminiscing on his hair when he was younger, and will ask D.Va, a ''19-year-old professional gamer from South Korea'' of all people for an autograph. Mei is a scientist who is never seen without her adorable smile, optimistic outlook, and her cute sidekick robot, Snowball.
* From ''VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth'' we have Vatista, the resident [[EmotionlessGirl emotionless]] [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot robot girl.]] Between her [[NoSocialSkills terrible social skills]], inability to understand the implications of standing in the same spot for an entire month, [[BadLiar ineptitude at lying]], and overall lack of common sense, she's quite handily one of the quirkiest members of the cast. To put the icing on the Adorkable cake, she starts her story completely naked, only putting on clothes per [[TheHero Hyde's]] request... and strips again later, [[InnocentFanserviceGirl believing only he has a problem with it.]]
