Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/XavierRiddleAndTheSecretMuseum'': Brad, who is awkward, shy, and easily nervous.


** Candace is that rare big sister example, due to her neurotic ButtMonkey-ness. She also Squee a lot, tries to get her brothers in trouble, and fails miserably.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheJungleBook'': [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4dimam Tabaqui]] from the 2012 DQ Entertainment CGI version of the Jungle Book. Despite being a ManipulativeBastard and a SmugSnake, his nervous and cowardly nature make him a goldmine of cute, comedic moments. He's also a total IneffectualSympatheticVillain compared to the rest of the antagonists that Mowgli faces.

Added DiffLines:

** Zuko is like this even when he shows up in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra '' at age 88. When he goes with Korra’s dad and cousins to check on combustion bender P’Li in her prison, he tells them that he [[CallBack hired someone with a similar power to kill Aang once]]. All Tonraq can do is give a “WTF?” expression, probably processing the fact that he just said he tried to get someone to kill his best friend. Zuko’s response is , “[[CaptainObvious Didn’t work.]]”

Added DiffLines:

* The eponymous character of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' absolutely loves playing with her buddies, is quite naive, she loves flowers and ponies and she has a slightly dorky voice.

Added DiffLines:

** Zatanna is this in season 1, mostly stemming from how she reciprocates Dick Grayson's banter and occasionally uses Buffy Speak in her spells.

Added DiffLines:

* This is like a second language in ''WesternAnimation/SheRaAndThePrincessesOfPower''. It's not restricted to the good guys, either.
** Adora manages to be played as both an AmazonianBeauty and as this, especially in the early stages when she's still very much a FishOutOfWater. For example, her first ever party has her reduced to StunnedSilence by her first encounter with a horse.
--->'''Adora:''' (having accidentally ripped her [[PrefersRocksToPillows overly comfortable]] mattress) Glimmer! ''Glimmer!'' I think I killed the bed!
** Glimmer herself is very enthusiastic and upbeat, at least early on, which can lead her here given that she's still a bit of an awkward teen. [[spoiler:She gets a lot more serious later, as TheChainsOfCommanding start being piled on.]]
** Bow has an endearing earnestness to him as TheHeart, and is also a huge nerd for First One tech. He's the guy who came up with the title "Best Friends Squad".
** Scorpia is good-hearted, scatterbrained, and surprisingly socially awkward when not hitting people for the Horde.
** Entrapta is an even bigger socially awkward nerd, to the point where she treats a party as a social experiment, but her upbeat, friendly and determined outlook earned her a lot of fans out of universe, and even managed to touch the softer side of [[BigBad Hordak]].
** Hordak himself is a cold, menacing DarthVaderClone...but when he tries to actually express sincere thanks to Entrapta it's possibly the most awkwardly endearing thing he's done in any version of the canon.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'': Webby. She's learned all sorts of adventuring skills from her Granny, and spent most of her life researching Scrooge and the [=McDuck=] family. But she's socially isolated and therefore (adorably) awkward around peers (like the nephews or Lena). Also adorable when she geeks out over a new piece of [=McDuck=] lore. (Huey and Dewey have also been described this way, and Della might qualify as well; time will tell.)


** Even Mitchell can be this when he's not being a JerkAss, especially in the episode "Solar-System Bake Off!", where he acts socially awkward around Jet and his friends when he is trying to gather information about their entry, [[ToyShip especially Mindy]].
