* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'': Mikkel was hired to be TheMedic, is possibly more of a bookworm than the person hired to be the crew's scholar, and has a few CrowbarCombatant skills that, while prone to ATeamFiring, find some usefulness when combined with his StoutStrength.

* Nearly every educated Spark (mad scientist) in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' qualifies for this {{trope}}, including the protagonist, Agatha. Not only can they build death rays and turn even the most innocuous of mechanical items into death traps (such as a merry-go-round that can level a small ''town''), but they are generally shown kicking butt with their bare hands (and feet) as well as with less sophisticated weapons, such as giant wrenches and rapiers. And [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20061023 brooms]]! {{Badass}}ness depending on anger level seems to be common among sparks.

* [[Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation Misho]]. Dear Gods in Yu-Shan ''Misho.'' Now being a [[{{Exalted}} Twilight Caste Solar]] is all about being a Badass Bookworm in the first place, but Misho is a glasses-wearing [[TheChick healer]] who prefers to use AwesomenessByAnalysis to defeat his foes. And if you piss him off, he will ''[[http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0100.html obliterate you.]]''

** Some of the librarians of the Incorruptible Library probably qualify since their Acquisitions Department is apparently [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20160127 heavily armed]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Whither}}'' has Finn, an unassuming bespectacled MagicLibrarian, who embraces the [[AnIcePerson powers bestowed on him]] in order to save the world (or maybe two). Even before declaring himself "not helpless" he was prone to stunts like [[spoiler: defending his companion from a wolf. Using a pocket knife]].

* In a way, all five Webcomic/AgentsOfTheRealm qualify, as they're in college, but Paige stands out as a straight-A student who won't let this whole MagicalGirl business get in the way of her marks.

* Felicia Whitewind from ''FetchQuestSagaOfTheTwelveArtifacts'' also qualifies, since not only is she a scholar, she's also capable of making it hard for thieves to get to her.

* Nan in ''LovecraftIsMissing'' is a librarian who also happens to be an expert in the occult. Considering this is a CosmicHorrorStory based on the works of the [[Creator/HPLovecraft Master Himself]], that's not exactly a field for the fainthearted. Luckily, Nan is a highly effective ass-kicker who faces thugs and {{Eldritch Abomination}}s with equal aplomb.
* Ayanah from ''{{Pawn}}''. A physically weak scholar type, she uses her considerable smarts to traverse a legendary dungeon that claimed the lives of mighty warriors, stops the demon guardian from killing her by reciting an obscure demon law, beat said guardian by challenging her to a game she knew the demon knew nothing about, and effectively enslaved said demon with a kiss.
* Bob of TrueMagic (pictured above). He later threatens somebody whilst the sword's still in the book.

* WapsiSquare has this with Monica and Katherine, both working as anthropologists in a museum. Phix and Nudge are both librarians and could easily qualify as "Cthulhu Bookworm".
