* Gale from ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' frequently does this exact gesture in spite of not actually wearing glasses; it is heavily implied that this is a CharacterTic remaining from his [[{{Reincarnation}} past life]]. Notably, he is [[BadassBookworm the strategist and one of the top combatants]] of the [[BadassCrew Embryon tribe]].

* Roland from ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' manages to adjust his glasses from both arms with one hand; said hand also bears his [[MarkOfTheBeast Atma mark]], so it served as an AssKickingPose.

* Mr. Spender from ''{{Webcomic/Paranatural}}'' exaggerates this trope as well as ScaryShinyGlasses by doing it seven times in a row and ''[[http://paranatural.net/index.php?id=182 weaponizing it]]''. [[spoiler: He has the power to control [[LightEmUp light]], as in any kind of light, including the shine coming from adjusted glasses.]]

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'':
** Sarah [[http://egscomics.com/comic/2014-07-07 does this]] as a way of showing off the [[PurelyAestheticGlasses costume]] NerdGlasses she just received.
** Both [[http://egscomics.com/comic/2014-06-02 Luke]] and [[http://egscomics.com/comic/2014-11-13 Sam]] do this to trigger ScaryShinyGlasses.


* In the ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' series, the titular witch will casually adjust her SexySpectacles at the corner with the barrel of her gun. While certainly not the smartest way to adjust them, it does illustrate that Bayonetta is equal parts dangerous and sexy.

* In the ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' series, the titular witch will casually adjust her SexySpectacles (or her mask, if she's in her 'Old' costume) at the corner with the barrel of her gun. While certainly not the smartest way to adjust them, it does illustrate that Bayonetta is equal parts dangerous and sexy. \n Less blatantly, she'll pull her thumb away from the grip and shift them up by the underside of the frame - this one tends to happen when something's piqued her curiosity.



to:

* ''Series/{{Maniac}}'': Dr. Fujita frequently pushes her glasses up her nose by the bridge.



** Senator Armstrong of ''Videogame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' does this as well.

* ''ComicBook/RobinSeries'': Tim is seen adjusting his glasses this way after he takes to wearing a pair to avoid having so many people recognize him as "that Drake kid" who was plastered all over their televisions when his father used all his political connections to get Tim rescued out of [[ComicBook/BatmanNoMansLand No Man's Land]].



to:

* [[ComicBook/Superboy1994 Kon-El]] frequently adjusts his sunglasses by a temple, often pulling them down just a bit to better glance at someone in a sarcastic manner before sliding them back up.


* In ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', Lord El-Melloi II, [[PowersViaPossession who is also kind of]] [[Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms Zhuge Liang]], adjusts his glasses by the bridge as his skill animation. It fits, since he's a BadassBookworm [[TheStrategist Strategist]] type, with occasional [[BatmanGambit manipulative]] moments. Slightly less cool: he even tries to adjust them when he's not wearing them, like he [[{{Adorkable}} keeps forgetting that he forgot his glasses]].

** Sigurd also does the same as TheSmartGuy whose glasses are literal manifestations of his wisdom, even trying to adjust them while they're still underneath his mask.

** Hugh O'Conner adjusts his glasses by propping up the lower right corner with his thumb while his index finger is pointed up, making an 'L' gesture (his gimmick is an InsufferableGenius who refers to everyone as "mouth-breathers", so he's likely calling you a 'loser'), so this is a subversion as it's meant to convey a "by the bridge" sentiment. [[spoiler:By the end you learn this is nothing but fake bravado anyway]].

to:

* In ''VideoGame/NiNoKuniIIRevenantKingdom'' Leander does this, again indicating the scholarly sort. He will sometimes do this when he's nervous or worried.


* People with glasses are not that common in ''Webcomics/StandStillStaySilent'' (one notable example being Trond), but in Lalli's Keuruu-flashback, a woman adjusts her OpaqueNerdGlasses by the rims with her thumb and index finger while she is bringing forth evidence of who is to blame for an unforeseen attack.
