-->-- '''Danny Fenton''' (imitating his friend Tucker, seen far right), ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''

The Extraverted Nerd is a young teenage nerd (almost AlwaysMale), who dresses and behaves very awkwardly. Unlike the usual stereotypical nerd he is completely oblivious to his nerdly nature or at least acts it, and is a CasanovaWannabe who goes after girls without any fear of rejection. In fact, he doesn't take "no" for an answer. Usually serves as the stooge to the main character.

Many nerd characters in shows with {{laugh track}}s are like this. The TVGenius is a less annoying example. Although, whether or not an Extraverted Nerd actually has high intelligence is optional.

Often combined with the TVGenius, and usually a victim of HollywoodDressCode. Contrast with HollywoodNerd. Compare SmallNameBigEgo.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
%%* Kensuke in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''.
* Ox Ford in ''Manga/SoulEater'' is a serious nerd, but also a badass fighter, which often makes him overlook his own nerdliness and think he's as cool as the cool kids.
%%* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Kon, and Keigo Asano. Sort of.
%%* Umino of ''Franchise/SailorMoon''.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Mike Wazowski from ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'' is a bookworm who's not afraid to flaunt his smarts over the [[JerkJock Jerk Jocks]].
* Tombo in ''Anime/KikisDeliveryService'', while being a nerd, he still is an outgoing character.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' : Eric.
* [=McLovin=] in ''Film/{{Superbad}}''. He starts out that way but by the end of the movie he has sex with a girl and stages himself getting arrested to appear like a Badass.
* Booger from ''Film/RevengeOfTheNerds''. (Using a somewhat broader definition of "nerd" than you see in more recent media -- he's more of a slob -- but the non-nerd characters in the movie do consider him a nerd.) Has few (no) social graces, and is a total extravert who utterly fails to understand why people find him repulsive, unlike the more vanilla nerds of the rest of the cast.
* Farmer Ted in ''Film/SixteenCandles''.
* The film ''Film/{{Superstar}}'' has a rare a female example, Mary Katherine Gallagher, a totally unselfconscious extravert and show-off who really has no clue that she's a total nerd.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Wesley's character sheet entry reads, "Thinks he's SeanConnery when he's pretty much George Lazenby."
* ''Series/FamilyMatters'': Steve Urkel, the former TropeNamer. Steve actually does know he's a nerd, he's just usually [[ProudToBeAGeek proud of it]] or at least puts on a brave face when others pick on him. Only Laura is finally able to shame him into trying to change, which leads to his genetically altered clone. Later on in the series, when she does agree to date him he starts dressing ''slightly'' less nerdy, but is still just as proud to be one. [[spoiler:By the end of the series, Laura had finally accepted Steve for who he is and even fell in love with him.]]
* ''Series/SavedByTheBell'': Samuel "Screech" Powers. Also pretty much anyone in the school classed as a "nerd," actively portrayed as if they are an entire race all to themselves [[AcceptableTargets to be derided by our heroes.]] The worst part was the the "heroes" were usually considered as being rather ''nice'' to the nerds.
* Carlton Banks from ''Series/FreshPrinceOfBelAir'' mostly qualifies for this, but he does get his chances from time to time. His short stature does not really help much.
* Irwin "Skippy" Handelman in ''Series/FamilyTies''. Unusual in that Skippy was even less intelligent than [[TheDitz Mallory Keaton]]. Alex P. Keaton, on the other hand, is portrayed as more that of the HollywoodNerd.
* Cookie in ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide''.
* Rare female example: Quinn in ''Series/{{Zoey 101}}''.
* Ron Yuma in ''Series/NaturallySadie''.
* Howard Wolowitz from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. Howard actually knows he's a nerd, but chooses to ignore this and act like he's cool in the hopes that people (especially women) will be fooled. He fits this trope so well he could perfectly be the TropeCodifier for younger viewers.
* Rico from ''Series/HannahMontana''.
* Lawrence "Larry" Tudgeman III (a.k.a. "Tudge") from ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'',also a subversion, as he was apparently a nice, normal guy outside school.
* [[LoonyFan Penelope Taynt]] in ''Series/TheAmandaShow'', [[VerbalTic please]]. Also a stalker, who [[LesYay may or may not]] have been a StalkerWithACrush.
* Reality show example: Richard Rubin on the first season of ''Series/BeautyAndTheGeek''. (Most of the other "geeks" were more closer to HollywoodNerd.)
* ''Series/TheLatestBuzz'': Cody Herman (who calls himself "the Her Man").
* Moss in ''Series/TheITCrowd'', although his character is arguably more aware of his nerdiness than most of the characters attributed to this trope.
* Robbie from ''Series/{{Victorious}}''. Sikowitz even tells him [[NiceJobBreakingItHero "Way to go, Urkel!"]] in ''Locked Up''.
* Creator/StephenColbert of ''Series/TheColbertReport'' is ''the'' God-King of this trope.
* Noel in ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' appears to be so convinced that Roz wants him that in the finale, when she kisses him out of excitement of her new promotion and Gil asks him if it was worth the wait, Noel assumes Gil was talking to ''Roz''.
* Will from ''Series/TheInbetweeners'' knows that he is unpopular and socially awkward by the standards of the normal society, but he hates these standards which results in that half the time, he tries to become one of the popular guys, and the other half, he insists/implies that his notion of social norms is much better than actual norms. Either way, this trait will often result in him being a quite good example of this trope.
* Milton in ''Series/KickinIt'' reaches an interesting point in terms of the HollywoodDressCode. [[WordOfGod Dylan Riley Snyder]] specifically mentioned that Milton'll unbutton his top shirt button more often in season 3 just as OneDirection's made the buttoned-up look trendy.
* Farkle Minkus in ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'', although he has a BSOD when a bully shoves his nerdness in his face.
** Season Two toned him down considerably.
* Arnold Rimmer in ''Series/RedDwarf'' is older than the usual examples, but his utter bewilderment that other people don't share his enthusiasm for Hammond organ music ("Not even Reggie Wilson's ''Lift Music Classics''?") and aren't interested in his ''TabletopGame/{{Risk}}'' war stories qualifies him for the trope. He also has a firm belief in the power of his terrible chat-up lines, even though he has had one confirmed romantic encounter, with a woman who was possibly concussed and calling him Norman.

* The singer in Five Iron Frenzy's song "You Can't Handle This".
* The main character in the music video for Music/WeirdAlYankovic's "White and Nerdy". Note that while in the chorus he seems to admit that he's nerdy (or at the very least, he acknowledges that other people see him this way), his BoastfulRap in the verses indicate that he thinks he's real hot stuff. He's apparently extroverted enough to invite gangsters to go bowling with him, but so far he's had no takers.
* Waldo from Music/VanHalen's video for "Hot for Teacher."
* Patrick Stump (and to a lesser extent the rest of the band) in Music/FallOutBoy's "Dance Dance".

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Jameson (or Jamison) Winger, in the World Wrestling Federation, who was originally a nerdy, socially-challenged Ed [=McMahon=]-style sidekick for the short-lived "Bobby Heenan Show" segment of "WWF Prime Time Wrestling". He later became a recurring character (in the same mold) on WWF television, and even served as a sidekick for the Bushwhackers tag team. Bears a striking resemblance to Andy Kindler (of "EverybodyLovesRaymond" fame), although Kindler swears it was not him, and has even gone as far as to claim it was ''another'' Andy Kindler. Which is strange, because Jameson was portrayed by an actor named John [=DiGiacomo=].
* The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling ([=GLOW=]) had Zelda the Nerd.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Flash in ''Webcomic/BoyMeetsBoy'' starts out as an incredibly nerdy ManChild. Then he decides he wants to date, and finds someone to teach him about women. And he picks... ''[[CasanovaWannabe Fox]]''. Results are predictable.
* ''Webcomic/OutAtHome'' has Eddie, the nerdy nine-year-old with a massive crush on seventeen-year-old Penny, who he has tried to seduce several times. The results are, well, [[http://www.out-at-home.com/archives/909 expected]].

[[folder:Web Original]]
* WhateleyUniverse character Peeper, of SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy. He hits on every hot girl on campus, to the point of out-and-out harassment. He thinks he's awesome. He's the best-known broadcaster on WARS (the Whateley Area Radio Station) and he broadcasts the school Combat Finals. Girls avoid him like the plague, especially once word getsaround that his only superpower lets him look through people's clothing.
* Neptune Vasilias from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is an odd inversion. He initially comes off as a cool lady's man, but he's implied to be afraid of heights, [[ICantDance can't dance]], and is an [[{{Bookworm}} intellectual]]. According to Episode 7 of Volume 2, he [[InvokedTrope actively works at constantly being seen as cool]] to make up for his failings.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Roger from ''WesternAnimation/TheLifeAndTimesOfJuniperLee''.
* Irwin, from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' qualifies, though he tries to be "cool" despite it.
* Upchuck in ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'', though considering that the stars of the show are all fairly nerdy outcasts in some way, his appearance is less jarring.
%%* Steve Smith in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is a textbook example.
* Neil Goldman in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', though the only girl he ever tried to get was [[HollywoodHomely Meg Griffin]], but it's still played straight.
* Gandhi in ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'' affects and over-the-top "cool guy" persona, but at best he's the class clown. Of the popular clique, Cleopatra ignores him whenever possible and JFK only notices him when he attempts to make him over (to look and act more like JFK, of course) to win a bet in an homage to ''Film/ShesAllThat''.
* Tucker Foley from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' as the quote above classifies in full. ''He even looks like Urkel!''
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': In "The Last Temptation of Homer," Bart is prescribed thick corrective glasses, special orthopedic shoes, a scalp cream that mats his hair down into a dorky center-part, and a throat spray that makes him (temporarily) sound like Creator/JerryLewis. He is confused why his normal ([[DependingOnTheWriter this episode]]) outgoing personality is met with derision until he catches his reflection in Milhouse' glasses and gasps, "I'm a ''nerd''!" Milhouse seems afflicted with this too as he sees ''him''self in Bart's glasses and gasps, "So am I!" (In other episodes, Milhouse seems perfectly cognizant of what a dork he is.)
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama''
** Cody. According to [[AllThereInTheManual his official online bio]], he fails to recognize his own geekiness because he legitimately ''is'' cooler than any of his friends (who make up the Albert Einstein Fan Club at his preppy private school).
** Harold is even dorkier. Interestingly, he seems to acquire the "lady's man" aspect of the trope not long after Cody loses it (or at least, [[SingleTargetSexuality sets it solely on]] [[PerkyGoth Gwen]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'': Vince's older brother is pretty much a blatant reference to Urkel. In an interesting twist, though, ''he'' knows he's a geek--it's jockish Vince who's in the dark.
* Kevin French from ''WesternAnimation/MissionHill'' in his "Grubermeister" persona in the episode ''The Douchebag Aspect''.
* In ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall,'' [[spoiler:[[UnknownRival Jason Funderberker]]]]. His confident attitude sets him up as a {{Foil}} for [[SociallyAwkwardHero Wirt]], who's about half as dorky but twice as anxious about it.
