* Varric Tethras in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' (and to a lesser extent in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'') is a somewhat rare example of an asskicking ''author''. He's essentially the InUniverse equivalent of Creator/StephenKing if the popularity of his novels and serials are any indication. He's also a wicked shot with [[ICallItVera Bianca]], his RepeatingCrossbow, and holds his own quite well as a frontline agent of the Inquisition and party member.

* Tycho Brahe from [[PennyArcadeAdventures Penny Arcade's "On the Rain Slick Precipice of Darkness"]]. Tycho is a scholar who comes from a long family tradition of seeking to end the world and he constantly has his nose in a book. He ''will'' throw his book into the air long enough to frag someone with a Tommy Gun, catch the book and continue reading though. His special attack includes ''throwing'' the book at foes and later on he 'upgrades' his weapon by mounting the book on it. Yeah, I think he counts...

* Shad, from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', could be a contender for this trope. He's a textbook nerd, with glasses and argyle socks and a freakishly large bow tie, who natters on extensively about the ancient race of bird-people called the Oocca. He's also tolerably muscular, uses an ornamental dagger as a ''bookmark'', and forms a Resistance with the characters Auru, Ashei, and Rusl -- all of whom are easily defined as being BadAss. [[spoiler:Plus the ancient Hyrulean BAZOOKA.]] It stands to reason that Shad wouldn't be part of that little collective if he couldn't hold his own.

** From the same game, [[VideoGame/{{PokemonDiamondAndPearl}} Cynthia.]] A LOT more emphasis is put on the {{Badass}} part, since she's pretty much the only champion to have a competively balanced team, but she's very interested in mythology and history. [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Unless you interpret that as a lie and believe she's researching it]] [[spoiler: to stop Cyrus.]]
