** Another good example occurs in ''JourneyToTheCenterOfTheEarth'': Trying to decipher Arne Saknussem's coded message, Professor Lidenbrock has the narrator Axel (who is secretly in love with [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter the Professor's niece Grauben]]) write a message in a simple code. He then effortlessly decodes it - "Oh, how much I love you, Grauben" - and does not even notice that Axel has unintentionally revealed his attraction to Grauben to him or how embarrassed Axel is after realizing what he just did.

* ''{{Gunnm}}'''s Desty Nova is much more of a MadScientist, but ''some'' [[SendInTheClones of his more friendly incarnations]], mainly Nova The Flan Cook (AKA Nova X, [[spoiler:though he later turned out to be [[FauxAffablyEvil no better than the others]]]]) or Nova Pod (AKA Porta-Nova), can fit this trope pretty well.
