The issue between STKZ and DTKZ is confusing in this series.
* Team KZ in ''Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote'' was chosen by [[CramSchool Shumei Seminar]] to be a group of this. Much of the athlete part is already evident in the anime, but the ''first page'' of the novel already reminded the little readers that the KZ team's minimum academic requirement is... top 2.2%[[note]]The exact language used in the novel is the deviation value of 70; translated into statistics it is equivalent to two standard deviations above mean in a normal distribution.[[/note]].

Bill Bradley, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Chris Nowinski
Added DiffLines:
* Former {{NBA}} star and U.S. Senator Bill Bradley. The top pick in the 1965 NBA Draft, Bradley averaged over 30 points per game for Princeton University, but didn't immediately start his pro basketball career, as he attended Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship. While never a colorful player with gaudy numbers in the pros, he was a key part of the New York Knicks' 1970 and 1973 championship teams and played over a decade in the NBA. * {{NFL}} quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, a Harvard graduate and owner of a BadassBeard. * Former wrestler Chris(topher) Nowinski is the first Harvard alumnus to wrestle in the {{WWE}}, and his gimmick mainly revolved around his being such. He retired at the young age of 27 due to concussion-related issues, and is now a renowned expert on sports concussions.

* All the good quarterbacks in ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' are this trope. So are Devil-Bats lineman Jumonji, sociopathic JerkJock Agon, and too many other examples to count. Generally the series likes avoiding DumbJock as much as possible.

* Natsumi Hinata from KeroroGunso is both the top athlete in school and near the top of her class in grades as well. She is contrasted with her little brother Fuyuki who is both un-athletic and more interested in his hobby than his studies. The GagDub naturally exaggerates both of these tendencies. * Hinagiku Katsura of Manga/HayateTheCombatButler is the StudentCouncilPresident with the highest grades whenever they are mentioned (her treasurer is second-highest and her secretary third) as well as the [[KendoTeamCaptain Captain]] of the rarely-ever-mentioned Kendo Team. As seen in the school's athletic festival and marathon race, she trumps just about everyone at school with the possible exceptions of Hayate himself and her older sister Yukiji (although Yukiji is nowhere near as smart as her and Hayate eventually studies to get near her level but has yet to surpass her).

* Shana of ''ShakuganNoShana'' fame is shown as being hypercompetent at both, which is in part justified by her being a superhuman.

Yes, usually jocks are [[DumbJock just dumb]]. But this jock is different. This jock just made the Dean's List and has to choose between an academic scholarship to a prestigious IvyLeague school, or the football scholarship in the Big 12. In other words it's what you get when you combined a well toned mind with well toned muscles.

*** A few schools have a reputation for specifically being uncompromising. Probably the best-known example would be Stanford University, a member of the Pac-12, one of the five premier athletic conferences (and #2 all-time in NCAA championships won across allsports, behind UCLA), but also the "Harvard of the West" that demands high academic standards from all of its students, even the athletes. To a lesser degree, Duke University. * Collegiate athletes are required to maintain a certain grade point average, usually a C, but the toughest coaches want more.

* Tezuka and Atobe from ThePrinceOfTennis are both the captain of their teams ''and'' the {{Student Council President}}s. Tezuka is so smart that he can even correct ''teachers'' sometimes.
