* Edmund from GaiaOnline got his start as a MadScientist. Then he became a superhero. Then he fought off an AxCrazy vampire hitman... multiple times... These days, he's supposedly retired. Supposedly.

* ''FinalFantasyTactics'': the Calculator does stuff with math. Stuff like injuring every enemy on the screen. At once. Since the game lets you change classes, ''every one'' of your characters can learn to be a bookworm. Combine this with all the other classes... Badassery out the behind.

** Nu Mou Scholars in ''FinalFantasyTacticsA2'' use books as their weapons of choice. Seriously, no one expect a short and fragile race like the Nu Mou to be physically strong since they specialize in magic, but Scholars can deal a good amount of physical damage and use spells that hits everyone by just reading from the book. Human Seers also uses books for weapons and their Magick Frenzy ability lets them hit enemies with spells AND the book.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Tropico}}'', it's possible for the Intellectuals faction to take up arms and attempt to overthrow your regime just as any other faction. You can also become this if you pick "War Hero" or "Professor" as your background and "Scholarly" or "Athletic" as your respective trait.

* Series/ResidentEvil: Leon S. Kennedy is described by Ada Wong in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 Resident Evil 4's]] Ada's Reports as such: "Practically a genius, he has smarts and knows how to use them."

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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.
