%% 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.
%%* 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.
* ''WebVideo/ClassicAlice'': Titular character Alice is very cute and upbeat, especially the first eight books. She loves reading, writing, and all things school. Whenever she makes a major life decision, she creates overly elaborate posters and charts (and once even a board game) to help her make the best decision. A lover of charts, organization, and with the dorkiest smile she can muster, Alice coasts through different novels on her videos.
%% * Creator/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.
%%* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGdOwPYqQDk Cloud's]] Fleur, who has a whole doodling book, and her son at the end.
%% * WebVideo/{{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.
%% * ''WebVideo/TheHappyVideoGameNerd'': Derek, especially when he {{squee}}s over the games he reviews.
%% -->"First up, let's get ''dangerous'', with good ol' [[WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck DW]], the KING of Disney cartoon cool!"
%% * 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'': 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.)
%%% This, despite being very wordy write up, does not explain what makes her a cute dork.
%% * [[WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter Mr. Enter]], whether it be happily praising his favorite shows or showing off his witty sense of humor, he definitely comes off as this.
%%** John and Hank Green.
%% * ''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]].
* Simone Giertz, Queen of Shitty Robots, a woman so adorkable that when vlogger Jenna Marbles gave her a ShoutOut, she responded by building a robotic version of Marbles's dog Kermit. After a brief montage showing how the dog basically couldn't walk straight, stand up or do tricks, she commented [[https://youtu.be/UQ0tutzTWlI?t=0m56s "There you go, this is how I court friends. Good job, Giertz,"]] and patted herself on the back.[[note]]There's the incidental factor of her name: it looks like it's pronounced "Geertz" but it's actually more like "Yetch".[[/note]]
* ''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.
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'':
** Homestar may be a so-called "terrific athelete", but his klutziness and not-so-bright personality has earned him several adorkable moments.
** Strong Bad has had dorky moments, namely when geeking out over movies, TV shows, video games or his favorite band Limozeen.
** Marzipan is adorable and dorky when she obsessively gushes over a sandwich Homestar makes her, saying it's too cute to eat, much to Homestar's annoyance.
** Strong Sad often has his moments of being adorkable, especially when he's talking about his favorite things like art, literature and poetry. The fact that he often [[ButtMonkey gets looked down upon]] by the other characters, [[BigBrotherBully particularly his older brothers]], and his gentle voice (when he's not being whiny) also adds to it. He's also very cute when he smiles.
* 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}} at the preparation of museum specimens of earlier installments.
%%* ''WebVideo/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.
%% If you add context to this write-up, please also fix the example indentation
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/StinkulousReddous StinkulousReddous]], a [[{{cosplay}} cosplayer]] known for dressing up as [[Anime/YuGiOh Seto Kaiba]] and appearing at cons featuring Creator/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.
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'':
** Freelancer York. He's a BadLiar, socially awkward, a bit of a ButtMonkey, and unusually [[NiceGuy nice and funny]] for a Freelancer--and he has [[VitriolicBestBuds adorably snarky friendship]] with Delta.
** Freelancer Washington. He's a WideEyedIdealist, friendly, well-meaning but socially inept, and almost painfully straitlaced and bewildered by anything that's not by-the-book.
** Freelancer North Dakota's AI, Theta. His first appearance is hiding behind North's leg from York and Wash, like a toddler meeting their parent's friends for the first time.
%% * ''[[WebVideo/ResidentEvilAbridged Resident Evil 2 Abridged]]'':
%% ** Leon is depicted as a nasally-voiced and friendly FairCop, who tries and fails to be suave with [[DarkActionGirl Ada Wong]]. He fails in this last category, but does so endearingly.
%% ** Claire is a part-time {{Pollyanna}} who tries to keep everyone positive and [[OohMeAccentsSlipping sometimes]] sounds MinnesotaNice.
* Youtube blogger [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7-E5xhZBZdW-8d7V80mzfg Jenny Nicholson]] makes videos in which her dorkiness about sci-fi films (the ''Star Wars'' franchise in particular) is at full force, but she also attempts to defuse or talk down the crazier fan theories as politely as she can, while still making a forceful argument. In her viral video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMNFaAUs2mo "Suicide Squad Sales Pitch"]] she wears highly adorkable glasses.
%% * ''WebVideo/RosssGameDungeon'': There's something very endearing about Ross discussing games he has played in the past. Shown off to it's fullest in the ''VideoGame/CarnEvil'' episode.
* ''Website/{{Cracked}}'': 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).
%% ** DOB aka Daniel O'Brien of ''Cracked''. Particularly his character in the ''WebVideo/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.
%%* 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.
%%* ''WebAnimation/WeeblAndBob'': Weebl is adorkable in his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpWL_roj9bI vlogs.]]
* ''Roleplay/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 ''Literature/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 ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets''. Especially around Jessica. "Documentary on hotels", indeed.
%%* Every member of the LetsPlay/{{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 ''WebVideo/TheFundayPawpetShow''. Here's a sample of his [[http://todferret.livejournal.com/1839.html livejournal]] CharacterBlog.
* ''WebVideo/WhyNotJanice'' has... Janice. Complete with UsefulNotes/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!
%% None of the above explains what makes him a cute dork.
%% * ''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. See also his interactions with co-host Meg Turney on Free Play.
** 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 very 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 Rooster Teeth 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.
%% ** Jake from ''Fanime/WelcomeToNightVale.''
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', [[TheHero Ruby]], [[TheSmartGuy Blake]] and [[NiceGuy Jaune]] are cute dorks to varying degrees due to their social awkwardness and dorky habits.
** Ruby [[GunNut loves designing weapons]] and comes across as very awkward in social situations, often failing to detect Weiss' bitter sarcasm and ComicallyMissingThePoint, plus she's a MotorMouth. Apparently she also likes fantasy books. [[WildMassGuessing Quite a few fans have theories that she's]] [[AmbiguousDisorder ambiguously autistic]].
** Blake is a quiet and reserved BadassBookworm who [[NotSoAboveItAll evidently]] finds a GuiltyPleasure in smutty fiction with names like "Ninjas of Love", if [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/65/8c/e1/658ce127ce336a9426e9ef18d028ab01.jpg this]] expression is any indication.
** Jaune is a textbook HollywoodNerd who [[CasanovaWannabe often puts up a front around girls that often falls flat]].
* ''Machinima/ShadowsOfThePast'' and it's sister series ''Ain't No Rest for The Wicked'':
** Eieon. Let's check shall we. American Asian,Pacifist,Pop Culture Geek,LARP and it's heavily implied that he "enjoys" furry internet pornography. He's basically like the most relatable guy on the internet.
** Sage as much as he wants you to believe he isn't. He's been shown to be just as geeky as Eieon, according to Eieon when they were teenagers they used to get into hot pop culture debates such as. "Can a lightsaber slash though Captain Americas shield" "Can the Enterprise be converted into a war vessel in times of galactic conflict" "Who shot first Han or Greedo" and "Sherlock Holmes is a hiding time-lord and has a fog watch some where at 221B Baker Street".
** Pyro and Blacksun both being an Expy for Sage and Eieon have the same pop cultured riddled conversations like their originals. But instead of the two arguing about science fiction and video games, these two argue about fantasy and books such as TheLordOfTheRings and conversations about, "Gandalf vs. Merlin" "Frodo vs Pre-Hobbit Bilbo" "How the hunter who killed Bambi's mother is the only Disney villain who has flat out murdered a character" and "How Sam was the real hero of The Lord of The Rings and without him Frodo would have died". Both are seen playing The Riddle Game with each other during their off time.
* Wayne at pretty much everything he does in ''WebVideo/{{Vigilant}}''. When he goes on a first date with Rita, he tells her he loves her and calls her "Mom" when he gets nervous. Everything he does is awkward in a likable way.
* Though he may be a CorruptCorporateExecutive, Corin Deeth the III of ''Podcast/KakosIndustries'' can be quite the AffablyEvil dork whenever he loses his cool. His voice can get pretty high whenever he's nervous, he has no problem practicing his EvilLaugh on the air, and he turns out to be a little ticklish. And if he isn't giving a menacing dark chuckle, his laughter can be surprisingly soft and sweet.
