* In the original ''Series/KamenRider'', Takeshi Hongo is both a genius (with an ImprobablyHighIQ of 600) and an accomplished athlete; unfortunately for him, he's exactly the kind of person [[NebulousEvilOrganisation Shocker]] is looking for, which gets him kidnapped and [[UnwillingRoboticisation turned into a cyborg]], kicking off the plot of the series (and the [[LongRunners franchise]]).

* TruthInTelevision for how some well-educated American athletes appear to Europeans where sports is not typically tied to academics but often involves dropping out of school early to pursue one's sports career full-time. From middle school onwards, most American schools with sports teams require student athletes to maintain a certain grade level/GPA in order to stay on the team. The lowest of these averages is a C (about 70%), with tougher coaches requiring better grades.
