Added DiffLines:

* Shows up in ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' as a holodeck character in Captain Janeway's Da Vinci's Workshop program, played by Creator/JohnRhysDavies. In one episode an alien steals his program and becomes his "patron" until Janeway gets him back--which naturally involves creating one of his gliders.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Some works portray him/his expy this way.
* MilitaryMashupMachine: The scythed chariots, primitive tanks and gliders he thought up are often seen in fiction, though they tend towards AwesomeButImpractical.

* WizardBeard: Rarely portrayed without a huge beard despite not practising magic.


Added DiffLines:

* Appears in a single paragraph in ''Literature/GoodOmens'', when he told Crowley that sure, the smile was a little off but it's not like anyone'll ever look at it, and what was that about helicopters?


Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy'' has a Leonardo da Miraglia, who lets you reroll bad artillery rolls and invented the steam tank.

* 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?"
