Friday Five – Favorite Fictional Nerds



Welcome to the Friday Five! Each week we help you get to know our writers with the help of a top 5 list! This weeks category: Favorite Fictional Nerds!

Let’s face it, we are all nerds(otherwise we wouldn’t be here), so picking our top 5 Favorite Fictional Nerds is like letting everyone know who we associate our personalities with the most. So lets see what everyone thinks of themselves! Let us know your favorites in the comments below!



  1. Doctor Sheldon Cooper – The Big Bang Theory – Sheldon is just so awkward and terrible to his friends 98% of the time, then there are those rare 2% of times where he’s such a sweet guy. Like when he asked Penny not to hurt his friend that one time. But regardless he is a super nerd and great at it.
  2. Doctor Gregory House – House MD – He’s freaking House, that is all.
  3. The Doctor – Doctor Who – No matter his current regeneration, the Doctor is always a nerd in one form or another.
  4. Peter Parker – Amazing Spider-Man – He may not always come off super nerdy, but that’s his roots and he still really is.
  5. Abed Nadir – Community – He’s not the same without Troy but Abed is still awesome.

Honorable Mention: David Lightman  – WarGames




  1. Sheldon – Big Bang Theory – ” One cries because one is sad. For example, I cry because others are stupid, and that makes me sad.”
  2. Leonard – Big Bang Theory – ” You call that a glow stick? *Pulls out a Lightsaber* This is a glow stick!”
  3. Steve Urkel – Family Matters – ” Did I do that?”
  4. Dr. Chi Park – House – ” So, nobody cares about the position until I apply, and suddenly it’s the last limited-edition lightsabre at ComiCon?”
  5. Lisa Simpson – The Simpsons – ” If anyone wants me, I’ll be in my room”



Honestly, everyone on The Big Bang Theory is my favorite nerd. But for the sake of diversity, I’ll a few others.

  1. Ben Wyatt – (Parks and Recreation) – “Cal-cu-later”.
  2. Hermione Granger – (Harry Potter) – It’s Wingardium LeviOsa, not LevisA”.
  3. Gandolf – (Lord of the Rings) – I was probably the wisest one on their journey.
  5. Belle – (Once Upon a Time) – She’s what you call, book smart.




  1. The entire gang of The Big Bang Theory – I know I’m cheating a bit, but I love them all equally
  2. Filburt Shellbach (Rocko’s Modern Life) – “I’m Nauseous, I’m Nauseous”
  3. Steve Urkle (Family Matters) – “Got any cheese?!”
  4. Armin Arlert (Attack on Titan) – Badass nerd who can fight giant creatures
  5. Shaun (Shaun of the Dead) – “Get to the winchester and wait until this all blows over”
