* Creator/KarlMay presents his AuthorAvatar [[{{Literatuore/Winnetou}} Old Shatterhand]] / [[Literature/OrientCycle Kara Ben Nemsi]] that way in his adventure novels: Fluent in too many languages to number and well-versed in the cultures of people all over the world, he takes it good-naturedly when comical relief characters mock him as a "bookworm".

Added DiffLines:

* Steve Rogers is a great motorcyclist, draws really good sketches, can speak conversational French, and has a thing for 1940's clothing and music. He's also the immensely physically-powerful and charismatic ComicBook/CaptainAmerica from the ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse''. He can effortlessly deal with a dozen assailants in an elevator, rip a log in half with his bare hands and even [[spoiler:defeat a man wearing PoweredArmor in hand-to-hand combat]].

** Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, and the rest of the Bat-Family aren't slouches themselves in this regard.

to:

** Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, and the rest of the Bat-Family aren't slouches themselves in this regard. Well, mostly. [[ComicBook/Batgirl2000 Cassandra Cain]] and [[ComicBook/Batgirl2009 Stephanie Brown]] are exceptions, due to having little to no exposure to language or culture, and growing up in a lower-class home, respectively. For quite a while, Cassandra couldn't even read!

* Dwight and Wallace from ''SinCity'' are both very well-read and enjoy the arts. A villain example would be Manute who speaks well and is obviously quite intelligent.

* UsefulNotes/ThomasJefferson, of course, spoke six languages, wrote his own translation of the Bible, and filled his works with references to ancient philosophy and poets. He was even familiar with the works of UsefulNotes/Confucius.

In most media, the average {{Badass}} is usually a hairy-knuckled brawler unfamiliar with the finer things in life, but not this guy. Like his [[SisterTrope Trope-brother]] the CulturedWarrior, the CulturedBadass knows how to be sophisticated, is an expert on gourmet food and art, and knows how to behave himself at a formal affair. In short, he knows how to be a gentleman but he also knows how to be a {{Badass}}.
