Added DiffLines:

** Given that the series treats [[MagicIsMental Magic as Mental]], many of Tamriel's most powerful mages and wizards are also some of the most well-learned people around. From the Altmeri mage-lords, to the [[TheMagocracy Telvanni]] wizards, to the [[MagicalSociety Psijic Order]], to the high ranking members of the various {{Wizarding School}} style institutions throughout Tamriel, many can fry a powerful foe with high level spells then turn around and give you a detailed explanation on their particular area(s) of interest/study.

*** Esbern was the Chronicler of the Blades before the group was nearly wiped out and the survivors forced underground by the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Thalmor]]. He's spent a long time studying the prophecies of [[BigBad Alduin]] and the Dragonborn. When the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] finds him to bring him to meet Delphine, he first spends several minutes packing up what he deems his most essential books. [[BadassGrandpa Despite his age]] (the Thalmor's dossier on him says that he is 70), he's still quite badass in combat, using [[PlayingWithFire fire spells]] and summoning [[ElementalEmbodiment Atronachs]].

* Pre-augmentation, Adam Jensen of VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution was a security specialist with ex-SWAT training and an associate degree in Criminal Justice. Post-augmentation, he picked up an interest in [[PastimesProvePersonality clock-making]] and his apartment is strewn with books on the subject, as well as various others on history, psychology, criminal law and cybernetics. He is also a [[CursedWithAwesome largely-robotic]] infiltration expert who can kill you quickly, quietly and in thirty different ways.

* QuintessentialBritishGentleman Franchise/ProfessorLayton is one of these, even though [[WidgetSeries the games consist mostly about solving puzzles]]. One particular example of this appears in the second game, in which one cutscene shows that Layton is quite proficient with a sword.

** 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 [[AllThereInTheManual 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.

** In ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'', the human resistance against the alien occupation is apparently founded and lead by the leader of Gordon's old team, Dr. Eli Vance. The rest of the inner circle include Dr. Kleiner, Dr. Mossman, and Dr. Magnusson. While neither of them are great fighters, they still have been leading the fight against an alien empire for well over a decade.
