* In ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Stewie's evil(er) brother Bertram traveled through time to murder Stewie's ancestor (who turned out to be Leonardo da Vinci) in a ''[[Franchise/TheTerminator Terminator]]''-style scheme. Unbeknownst to him, due to a TimeyWimeyBall Stewie was accidentally responsible for the Big Bang and, thus, creating the universe, and thus his actions ended up destroying everything, except for Brian and Stewie who managed to survive by stepping outside of normal time and space. When they go back to stop him, they try to reason with him by telling him that he will destroy everything if he does this - Bertram thinks for a second, then declares "WORTH IT!" and tries to kill Leonardo anyway. [[spoiler:He succeeds, but Stewie creates a StableTimeLoop by taking his place]].

* ''VideoGame/TheJourneymanProject'': In the second game, ''Buried In Time'', Gage Blackwood is assigned to investigate the studio where Leonardo Da Vinci was working with the Duke of Milan during 1488. The authors actually [[ShownTheirWork did some pretty good research]] on this interpretation, given the amount of historical facts that Arthur can provide, the staggering amount of working prototypes of Leonardo's inventions that match his real-world schematics, and that you can ''read his notebooks up close'', [[spoiler: which you have to do anyway, because somebody tampered with one of them.]]

Also note that people called him Leonardo (not da Vinci) back then. Da Vinci means "of Vinci", so it would be somewhat like saying "What would [[UsefulNotes/JesusChrist Of Nazareth]] do?"

!!Tropes as portrayed
in popular culture:fiction:

* MonaLisaSmile: TropeNamer. The way he painted the mysterious smile of the Mona Lisa has intrigued countless people over the centuries.
* RenaissanceMan: The TropeCodifier.
* SmallReferencePools: The ''Mona Lisa'' is our standard idea of ''a'' painting or a valuable painting for that matter. Countless stories about art theft will have a thief break in the Louvre and try to steal the Mona Lisa.

----

!!Appears in the following works:




!! Da Vinci's life and work provide examples of:
* TheAce: As the ultimate RenaissanceMan, this goes without saying.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Leonardo's sexuality is still a matter of dispute. He was arrested for sodomy and once wrote: "The act of procreation and anything that has any relation to it is so disgusting that human beings would soon die out if there were no pretty faces and sensuous dispositions." Even the women in his paintings have a certain androgynous style over them and he drew a lot of idealized male bodies, including his Vitruvian man.
* BadassBeard: People remember him mostly as a bearded man in old age, because most portraits depict him that way. It also seems to play in with the notion of the bearded wise man.
* BornInTheWrongCentury: Leonardo did a lot of scientific work that was centuries ahead of his time. He was dissecting corpses to study human anatomy before Andreas Vesalius did it. He wrote about inventions such as tanks, flying machines, helicopters, submarines,... that would only become fully developed in the 19th and 20th century.
* ForeignersWriteBackwards: In his case literally. Leonardo wrote all his scientific findings down in his local dialect and backwards! Some say he did this to prevent others from reading it. Others say it was a result of his dyslexia.
* GadgeteerGenius: Made many drawings for inventions he never actually made or tried out.
* HeroicBastard: Which is why he didn't have a surname.
* LIsForDyslexia: Believed to have suffered from it.
* MonaLisaSmile: TropeNamer. The way he painted the mysterious smile of the Mona Lisa has intrigued countless people over the centuries.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: The areas of his interest include: aeronautics, anatomy, astronomy, botany, civil engineering, chemistry, geology, geometry, hydrodynamics, mathematics, mechanical engineering, optics, physics, pyrotechnics and zoology.
* RenaissanceMan: The TropeCodifier.
* TheRival: Creator/MichelangeloBuonarroti, though only in the field of art. In science he had no real rivals.
* SmallReferencePools:
** Usually the first name people think of when they name a Renaissance artist. Ironically Leonardo didn't finish that many of his paintings and sculptures and spent more time doing science.
** Similarly, the ''Mona Lisa'' is our standard idea of ''a'' painting or a valuable painting for that matter. Countless stories about art theft will have a thief break in the Louvre and try to steal the Mona Lisa.
