* ''{{Negima}}'' plays this by translating the Library girls' abilities into battle magic. Given that said Library is filled with death traps to the point where the ground floor is off limits to Jr. high students and below the 3rd sub-basement is off-limits to the university students, rock climbing gear is needed to get to some parts of the Library that is open to the public, one of the librarians is a top class mage, and there is a dragon in the basement, a case can be made that they were fairly badass even before starting to learn magic.

** Nodoka Miyazaki is taking this trope and running with it in the last arcs with the way she is MinMaxing her artifact. [[http://www.mangareader.net/209-47584-3/mahou-sensei-negima/chapter-280.html She is scary.]] According to Nodoka, ancient crypts and ruins [[spoiler:in the Magic World]] are no match for [[GreatBigLibraryOfEverything Library Island]]. Nodoka's artifact is absolutely no help in dealing with traps, locks, or natural hazards - [[PluckyGirl it's all her.]]

** Hayate, a sweet IllGirl in a wheelchair who bonds with Suzuka over their shared love of fairytales... and is also the most powerful living character in the entire franchise with an entire arsenal of spells with destructive force equivalent to a nuke. Plus, her power literally comes from a book.

** Vivio, who became a librarian in the Infinity Library [[ImprobableAge in third grade]], begins showing more of her fighting skills in Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid, including her skill in the Strike Arts style of martial arts, sparring evenly with [[spoiler:Nove]]. This comes off as a surprise to Rio, who had thought of Vivio and Corona as "more of bookworm types."

* Manabizaki from ''{{SWOT}}'' is a person who studies too much (which is what the title means). He's always found with his nose buried in a book. However, he also has a HairTriggerTemper and gets really pissed when anything interrupts his study time. This attitude, coupled with his [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold externally nasty behavior]], have gotten him into fights with {{delinquents}}... to their detriment.
