* Protagonist Giacomo from ''RiseOfLegends'' is this. Who else would lead a RoaringRampageOfRevenge that culminates in him [[spoiler: destroying {{Sufficiently Advanced Alien}}s who claim to be gods?]]

* 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.]]

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' has the Engineer, although the "bookworm" part tends to take a backseat to the [[EverythingIsBigInTexas stereotypically Texan]] elements of his character in the actual game. He also has MadScientist tendencies.

Added DiffLines:

* Sans from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', despite being a LazyBum is implied to have been of scientific background. There's a book on quantum physics in his house, and some weird machine that he's been working on, not to mention that he seems to have worked with the previous royal scientist. The badass part comes from the fact that he's working as a sentry despite his scientific background... though he spends most of his time slacking off. [[spoiler:But if you want to see how badass he really is, go ahead and push his button one time too many. Just remember, [[SNKBoss you're going to have a bad time.]]]]

* GuildWars2: While the Durmand Priory primarily focuses on the research and reclamation of history, science, magic and technology; they are still expected to be competent, if not exceptionally skilled, fighters, if for no other reason than to combat the dangers associated with such field work. For this reason, their ranks include Guardians, Warriors and even Thieves, in addition to the other "scholar" professions.
