----
%%* Even though Hmac from ''Blog/{{Bronyism}}'' is a rude, manipulative asshole; he still quite often counts.
%%* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'': Yugi who is NOT a baby panda. Whoda thunkit?
* ''{{Literature/Brennus}}'': Eudocia gets a d'aww moment when she quotes [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Harbringer]] during a time when Brennus is incapacitated.
* Edward Current, of Website/{{Youtube}} fame. While attempting to parody fundamentalism, he provides a pretty good straight example of this trope.
* CleolindaJones coined the term "Adoraklutz" to refer to Bella Swan (''Literature/{{Twilight}}''); however, this reflects the rest of the cast's reaction to Bella rather than Cleo's.
* {{Charlieissocoollike}} ([[http://www.youtube.com/charlieissocoollike Link to the channel]]). Once, he even made a video reading the responses he had received in a survey of teenage girls in an attempt to better understand them. Apparently, many of said girls think about him quite a lot.
* Sexy Nerd feminist from Youtube (most certainly not of the [[StrawFeminist straw]] variety) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpLnPEVl538=channel Sarah Haskins]], who is tomboyishly dorky.
* ''The Webvideo/VlogBrothers'':
%%** John and Hank Green.
** The sadly departed Esther Earl was one in addition to being a [[IllGirl teenage cancer patient]] and undeniably a [[TheWoobie woobie]] despite her usually happy attitude. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj96HM9kDTQ This]] video should give you a bit of an idea how she was, though it's a MAJOR TearJerker as well... (R.I.A. Esther.)
%% * Let's just say everyone at ''Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses'':
%% ** ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick'': Nella in all her glorious wo-man childness.
%% ** The winner in the male category is probably Film Brain from ''WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown''.
%% ** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic. Even when he's raging, its so girly and bratty that you just want to pat his head and shut him up with a cookie.
%% ** In ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'', Luke and [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]] are definitely Adorkable in their Literature/HarryPotter costumes.
%% ** ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'': Linkara. Hell, just look at his [[http://fetishfuel.wikia.com/wiki/Atop_The_Fourth_Wall his Fetish Fuel page!]] He's practically Adorkable ''incarnate''.
%% ** Related to Channel Awesome fame - Creator/JamesRolfe, a.k.a. WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd.
%% ** Donnie Dupre and Rebecca Stone from WebVideo/DemoReel. They have {{Dark And Troubled Past}}s and very little talent, but they're both well-intentioned and always try and be positive.
%% ** Rachel who is part of The Nostalgia Critic's cast, and she and Malcolm continue to be adorkable specially for [[LargeHam hilarious overacting]].
* ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'': This is the reason Dr. Horrible is popular. He's quirky with his science-y gadgets and ''his'' evil plans manage to be rather endearing. He crushes on a cute GirlNextDoor and tries to hit on her by meeting her by accident in a laundry room. He's played by Neil Patrick Harris, which helps.
* Emily Graslie, the cheery, bespectacled writer and host of ''WebVideo/{{TheBrainScoop}}'' with her million watt smile and passion for the sciency goodness at the museum she works at as well as her work for the museum she used to work at. And dear god, her blooper reels from her lectures to the camera! Fair warning, some may [[Squick squick]] at the preparation of museum specimens of earlier installments.
%%* ''TheGuild'':
%%** Codex
%%** Zaboo kind of straddles the line between adorkable and just [[StalkerWithACrush creepy]].
%%* The boys from ''The Midnight Beast'', especially in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWqxo4hDuXk this video]]
* ''WebVideo/{{Awkward}}'''s main three guys: Lester, Kevin, and even Alex. They're terribly nerdy (Alex's idea of a pickup line is "Do you want to go to Anime North with me?"), but you just want to hug them.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/StinkulousReddous StinkulousReddous]], a [[{{cosplay}} cosplayer]] known for dressing up as [[Anime/YuGiOh Seto Kaiba]] and appearing at cons featuring LittleKuriboh and other abridgers, who she bakes brownies for. [[ImprobableWeaponUser She also wields a briefcase]] [[BadassAdorable that can instantly knock out anyone.]]
%%* Andrew Kepple, of animutation fame.
* Youtube blogger Gotham Scarecrow is usually actually kind of scary - he's always in character and he plays the sinister nerd impeccably - but he [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6K3wDOTJy2o got so excited about the new DC Animated Movie]] that he broke character (the first time I've seen him do so) and his full-on nerdy excitement is just hilarious ... and cute.
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'':
** Freelancer York (and arguably also his AI Delta, nicknamed Dee). He's a BadLiar, socially awkward, a bit of a ButtMonkey, and unusually [[NiceGuy nice and funny]] for a Freelancer--not to mention having an [[VitriolicBestBuds adorably snarky friendship]] with Delta.
** Freelancer Washington also is shown to have fit this trope in his younger days. He's a WideEyedIdealist, friendly, well-meaning but socially inept, and almost painfully straitlaced and bewildered by anything that's not by-the-book.
* ''Website/{{Cracked}}'':
** DOB aka Daniel O'Brien of ''Cracked''. Particularly his character in the ''AgentsOfCracked'' series. And his character in his "Obsessive Pop Culture Disorder" series. And his character in the "After Hour" series... he's pretty awkward, in the sense that his awkwardness makes him very pretty.
** They used the word "adorkable" in [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19493_4-reasons-zooey-deschanel-can-stop-pretending-shes-dork_p2.html this article]] to describe Creator/ZooeyDeschanel, her roles the character type she's associated with (ManicPixieDreamGirl).
%%* Zack of ''WebVideo/EchoChamber''.
%%** Tom anytime he lets the JerkAss thing go and is honest about how he feels. And Dana anytime she lets go of the snark to be honest has a such an adorably hard time with it.
%%** Gaelyn of season two.
%%* ''WeeblAndBob'': Weebl is adorkable in his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpWL_roj9bI vlogs.]]
* MSFHighForum: Swade, very much so. He's a shy, geeky artist with a tendency to put his foot in his mouth, especially in front of cute girls. His character is much the same.
* Widget of the ''WhateleyUniverse''. Cute inventor at SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy. Has a crush on Thunderbird, who thinks of her as a 'pal'. Wears bicycle caps and schlubby clothes, needs social skills, and has no idea how ot do her hair and use makeup to actually look pretty. Plus she's in a school with some of the most beautiful teenagers on the planet.
%%* Sokka and especially Zuko in ''WebVideo/AvatarTheAbridgedSeries''.
%%* The [[http://www.youtube.com/user/SuperiorStergeon/videos SuperiorStergeon]].
%%* Jay from ''MarbleHornets''. Especially around Jessica. "Documentary on hotels", indeed.
%%* Every member of the {{Yogscast}}. Except for Strippin, who is just flat-out [[HollywoodNerd hot]].
%%* Cookie Tuesday of ''Learning Town''. Even her name is adorkable.
%%* Nichole337 on YouTube ''used'' to be this. After the jaw surgery, she TookALevelInJerkass.
* Jane Eyre in a SettingUpdate webseries adaptation, ''WebVideo/TheAutobiographyOfJaneEyre''. She is cute as a button, though she's played to be not particularly attractive or drop dead gorgeous, as fits the original novel (Jane Eyre constantly describes herself as plain in the book). In her first video, she presents herself as a geeky and nerdy girl who adores her books and is very studious. She also plays with post-it notes and bowls with an orange and empty coke bottles. Adorable and dorky, QED.
* ''WebVideo/TheLizzieBennetDiaries'': Lizzie's very lovely and characters find her attractive. However, she can be a bit dorky and nerdish, especially with her costume drama theatre when she makes her vlog. Her younger sister Lydia constantly calls her a nerd and considers her taste in fashion rather poor.
%% * Todd Ferret from ''FundayPawpetShow''. Here's a sample of his [[http://todferret.livejournal.com/1839.html livejournal]] CharacterBlog.
* Miniature wargaming vlogger [[http://www.youtube.com/user/TheJoeyberry Joeyberry]] is utterly adorkable, especially when going on about crushing her enemies and the inevitable [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpmnFljZ9cQ victory dances]].
* WebVideo/ScreenJunkies: Host of the show Hal Rudnick. He gets into all sorts of awkward situations, in particular during celebrity interviews, and his signature sign off is the very unmanly "bye bye wave" but it's part of his charm.
* ''WebVideo/WhyNotJanice'' has... Janice. Complete with BritishAccents, GenkiGirl, FanGirl overload, LovableCoward antics, and a NotGoodWithPeople PluckyGirl persona hiding a StoicWoobie with a desperate need for affection. And British TV series.
* While he's usually hammy and manly, [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe's]] review of ''Film/ManOfSteel'' is something [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34t0QQPlmLs that needs to be seen to be believed.]] Joe even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this at the beginning of the video.
--> '''Joe''': Okay, I'm about to geek out on you for 30 minutes here so please forgive me!
* Both the narrator Cecil and his love interest Carlos from ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale.'' Cecil is usually smooth-voiced and unflappable while on the air, but tends to slip into giddy fanboying glee over cat videos and Carlos. Carlos, meanwhile, is the OnlySaneMan in Night Vale, but appears charmingly awkward on his and Cecil's date in episode 27.
* {{Creator/Roosterteeth}} is pretty much made of this trope.
** Ray Narvaez Jr. of Achievement Hunter is a hardcore gamer with a Gamerscore in the top 2000 wordwide. He also loves Sailor Moon, references some pretty obscure games, and has an adorable laugh.
** Ryan Heywood of AH is also pretty adorkable. He laughs like Cleveland from Family Guy, has 2 kids, and has a major in theatre. He also has a habit of forgetting how to speak.
** Gus Sorola isn't the most attractive man in the world, but makes up for it by loving movies and games, and loving the game Papers Please.
** Geoff Ramsey can count, as he plays games and refuses to play any game that features a little girl in distress. He also is a great father and videos with his daughter Millie are amazing.
** Michael Jones is an asshole at times, but he loves Resident Evil, Banjo-Kazooie, and even My Little Pony. He also occasionally joins in Ray's obscure references.
** Gavin Free is also pretty geeky when it comes to Slow Motion, his other job. When he talks about it, he can be rather adorable.
** Barbara Dunkelman, community manager for the Roosterteeth site, makes puns, and is pretty conventionally attractive. She is also really easily flustered during podcasts when talking about herself.
** Miles Luna is pretty nerdy anime-wise, as well as one of the writer's for {{WebAnimation/RWBY}}. He also tells long-winded stories and is considered by fans extremely attractive.
