* Most of the cast of ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}''. [[PerkyGoth Nico]] likes books about monsters (a plot point at least twice), [[CuteBruiser Molly]] has immense knowledge about the X-Men (even before she found out she was a mutant herself), [[AscendedFanBoy Victor]] was programmed to worship and know almost everything about superheroes (except [[CListFodder The]] ComicBook/{{Slingers}}). Gertie has the philosophical dorkiness of a SoapboxSadie. Alex is a clear MMORPG fanatic. Other characters have their moments but they aren't as prominent.

* Konata in ''Manga/LuckyStar'' (the current page image for CosplayOtakuGirl) is a complete over-the-top {{otaku}}, obsessed with anime and video games, mostly to allow for [[ShoutOut mentions]] of ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', ''VideoGame/GalaxyAngel II'', ''VisualNovel/{{Shuffle}}'', [[ActorAllusion Haruhi Suzumiya]], ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'', ''VisualNovel/ToHeart'', ''[[RuleOfThree Haruhi Suzumiya]]'', and so forth... but very little of what most [[{{Shoujo}} girls are expected to watch]], save for [[RuleOfFunny a notable brush with]] ''[[LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru Mari Mite]]'' (and a brief reference to ''Manga/WeddingPeach'' while the other girls talk about wedding dresses). This is lampshaded when Konata explains them as habits picked up to be closer to her father, although her friends then have more questions about [[DirtyOldMan her father's choice of habits]]...
** ''And'' she plays eroges. Y'know, the sort of videogame for men that features naked young girls. Is it a wonder that so many fans interpret her as a [[SchoolGirlLesbians lesbian]]?
*** Of course, a lot of women ''do'' play eroge with naked women. Later made stronger by the introduction of two friends, one of whom is more of an '[[YaoiFangirl Bukuro]] than Akiba' fangirl while another (relevant to the series) is a YuriFan.

Added DiffLines:

* Umaru Doma from ''Manga/HimoutoUmaruChan'', who isn't just an otaku but also a LazyBum, who idles around her house everyday gaming and snacking on junk food. Though she hides this side of herself from public and maintains a good image to the outside world.

* Kirino from ''LightNovel/{{Oreimo}}'' is a closet middle-schooler otaku and a popular fashion model. Kuroneko and Saori are these, too--little wonder they met in an online community called "Otaku Girls Unite". However, though Kirino is mainly into H-games that are obviously aimed at a male demographic, she's also a big fan of ShowWithingAShow ''Stardust Witch Meruru'', which is a MagicalGirl anime aimed at young girls.

* Tomoko Kuroki from ''[[Manga/NoMatterHowILookAtItItsYouGuysFaultImNotPopular Watamote]]'' is a downplayed example, since she likes anime and video games aimed at male otaku but she also likes things aimed specifically at girls, like {{otome game}}s. However, at the same time she's also an example of this gone ''horribly wrong''; her knowledge of perverted media only makes her that much more unapproachable, and ''because'' she's so obsessed with that stuff she initially had no idea how to approach real life and real people. She's horribly antisocial and judgmental, and even her closet kin, her brother, is annoyed with her. Luckily over the course of the series she starts to get better, but she's still the universe's ChewToy.
