* Caira of ''Videogame/{{Evolve}}''. She has multiple master's degrees, was the youngest team leader of Catalog, and wields a napalm grenade launcher against giant flesh eating monsters. And then once she kills them, she cuts them open and studies them. ** Taken a step further with Kala. Mentioned as being much smarter than Caira, she has a doctorate in Applied Quantum Molecular Biology, won several accolades in the same field, and fights monsters as a member of The Crew.

* Jaina Proudmoore in ''{{Warcraft}} III'' is actually like this, seeing that she really LIKES studying and declares to be 'in love' with her studies or profession as a mage, since it lets her study a lot. ** As of the writing of this contribution, Discipline Priests, who also count as BadassPreacher.

** Most famous the main protagonist Dr. Gordon Freeman, who only gets to show off his scientific expertise by performing the tasks of a lowly lab technician, but [[AllInTheManual according to the manual]], he just returned to America from his last university job in Europe and got his now employment in probably one of the worlds biggest and most secret research facilities. On the badass side, he kills hundreds of alien soldiers and monsters in the span of three days and travels to an alien dimension to kill an EldritchAbomination with machine guns, laser rifles, and rocket launchers.

* Daniel Dankovski from {{Pathologic}} is a world-famous pathophysiologist, but he is also an excellent sniper and sharpshooter, and he is very strong at knife- and fist- fight.

* Shulk in ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' is a rare example of a main JRPG protagonist being this. He is a weapons researcher who is studying the SwordOfPlotAdvancement, and eventually wields it himself. Even before that, he's pretty adept at swordplay, while being smarter than the usual {{Wangst}}y [[IdiotHero idiots]] we're used to.

* John Vattic from ''SecondSight,'' a skinny, awkward-looking academic... that also happens to be one of the most powerful psychics in the game. Plus, as seen in the first level of the game, he can kill people with his bare hands.

* Chris [=McShell=], Runner 10 from [[ZombiesRun Zombies, Run! ]], is a quiet, unassuming statistician who is certainly physically fit but doesn't come across as rugged. His kill count is ''three times'' that of any other runner. His secret? Analysing the zombie's behaviours over many, many hours of study and theorizing until he came up with a mathematical model for zombie "flocking" behavior, and then using that model to predict their reactions and become a zombie killing machine. He's noted in the ''Runner's Guide'' as a "BAMF Statistician". Yes, yes he is.

* Lexicus Runewright in RuneScape. Looks like a harmless librarian before he starts summoning books that shoots pages at you, plus multiple exploding books that could easily tear you to shreds if you don't have the sense to run. * Probably one of the earliest FPS examples is The Hacker from SystemShock, where he manages to survive in the space station filled to the brim with mutants and cyborgs controlled by the Megalomaniac AI. That Military-Grade Neural Interface probably helped too. * Extremely literal video game example: Lex (a worm) defeats a variety of monsters and creatures of legend in ''BookwormAdventures'', despite the fact that he is lacking not only weapons but limbs. And he is also using the power of '''words'''.
