* Professor Setrakian in ''Series/TheStrain'': a rather fragile old pawn shop owner and professor of East European literature and mythology. He appearantly speaks a number of languages and owns lots and lots of books on the subject as well as an [[CrazyPrepared arsenal of silver-based weaponry]]. He has been hunting and destroying vampires for more than half a century, and while a single attacking vampire would be traumatically frightening to the average New Yorker, Setrakian just routinely beheads the creature and goes back to the business at hand.

** There's also one [[GodModeSue Dr. Thomas "Tommy" Oliver]], science teacher and paleontologist as of ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'' as well as the whole franchise's [[TheAce Ace]]. The Badass Bookworming of Tommy was even lampshaded in an episode of ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'', where a former teammate of Tommy's even remarked that he found it hard to believe that ''Tommy'' became a Badass Bookworm.
** The series even parodied the trope in an episode of ''Dino Thunder'', where LovableJock Conner [=McKnight=] temporally became a Badass Bookworm thanks to a meteorite which changed the three Rangers' personalities (CuteBruiser Kira became a [[IBrokeANail dainty girly-girl]] and video game nerd Ethan became a JerkJock).

** Matatron was God's Scribe and when God disappeared he went to Earth and spent all that time reading any and all books he could find. In his human form he looks unassuming and rather harmless until one realizes that Metatron spent more time with God then any of the other angels and thus possess Divine knowledge that even the archangels do not know. He runs circles around both the good and bad guys and almost becomes the new ruler of Heaven. Part of his duties as God's Scribe was to be God's editor ie he pointed out God's mistakes. When Metatron calls God out for being a selfish jerk, God listens.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'': While watching her beat up everyone, it's sometimes hard to remember that [[RobotGirl Cameron]] is ''incredibly'' intelligent. This is only natural, though, as she never sleeps, can read very quickly, and spends a lot of nights at the local university library just studying. Apparently, [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots she gets bored easily.]]
