* [[spoiler: Junko Enoshima and Izuru Kamukura]] of ''Franchise/DanganRonpa''. [[spoiler:They both excel in analytics to the degree where they can predict and plan for nearly anything several steps in advance, but it has also caused them to be bored with the world. Junko relishes in the emotion of despair, because she finds it unpredictable and exciting, and eventually convinces Izuru to partake in it as well; Junko enjoys inflicting it upon herself, others, and eventually the entire world.]]

** There are some hints that [[spoiler:Kokichi Oma]] of ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' shares this talent for analytics, being [[spoiler:extremely intelligent to the point of ''writing a script that correctly predicts everyone's words and reactions'' for Kaito to follow in the fifth class trial. And just like Junko and Izuru, he hates being bored.

** Espers, no matter their powers, have to calculate and know what they're going to do, before they do it. Both Kuroko and Awaki need to calculate what they're going to teleport and where using eleventh dimension mathematics, not three-dimensional (length, width, height) mathematics. Accelerator, for all he won the SuperpowerLottery, still needs to know exactly how to apply his powers in order to get what he wants, eg, if he wants to stomp his foot and create a giant shockwave of doom, he can't just stomp and expect it to work, he has to know how to actually ''do'' that. If he can't work out the math behind an application of his powers, he can't use it.

** Fittingly, [[DistaffCounterpart Batgirl]] and [[AlternateCompanyEquivalent Midnighter]] (mentioned above) both have this. In Batgirl's case it's a CharlesAtlasSuperpower but in Midnighter's case there's a supercomputer in his head.

* In [[KJParker K. J. Parker's]] ''Engineer Trilogy'', Ziani Vaatzes, the titular engineer, is excellent at this. Although a terrible fighter, one of the first things the reader sees him do is kill two guards attempting to behead him by calculating exactly how long an unseen overhead chop will take, allowing him to twist at just the right moment that the guard holding him loses a hand instead. Later, he manages to kill an assassin in a pitch-black room by deducing his logical exact location, throwing a lump of coal so the sound will make the assassin's head twist at just the right angle, then slashing where he expects the man's jugular to be with his one-inch penknife. He's right.

** Actually Tatsuya has [[spoiler:near Godlike magic power, but it is restricted to two primary game-breaking abilities (and some offshoot abilities) preventing him from using powerful magic in day to day life. His analysis ability, Elemental Sight is a necessary secondary power to his primary abilities.]] His Elemental Sight gives him an innate understanding of spells and magic as he cal literally read magic and the physical world. He analyses that and uses it to win. He can also read the physical history of anything/anyplace/anyone (limited to the past 24 hours).

* ''Series/{{Sanctuary}}'' has James Watson, who ''is'' Sherlock Holmes (or at least the inspiration for the figure). Will is a not-enhanced version, and they start their brief acquaintanceship by analyzing each other.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Frost shows elements of this when he encounters Master Roshi attempting to use the Mafuuba against him. It's a very exotic technique way outside normal ki attacks for the series, but once Frost gets hit with it once, he's able to come up with an effective counter within just a few minutes.

* Hinata's new technique in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4573620/17/A-Drop-of-Poison A Drop of Poison]]'' relies heavily on trigonometry to calculate how her chakrams will ricochet around an area, eventually building in dozens of the blades flying through the air as she catches and flings them around. While it has a bit of build up time, once she gets going, it's near impossible to approach her due to all the razor sharp metal flying around.
