** In particular, since Canada has two official languages (English and French), every member of the Canadian Forces is expected to be fully bilingual by the time they finish training, or at least have a good enough grasp of both languages to understand or give orders in either.

* According to ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory'', [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Heavy Weapons Guy]] has a PhD in Russian literature. Apparently it's more useful than you'd think in his line of work.

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', the [[SuperSoldier Jaegers]] have a reputation for being not too smart, which is generally true. And then there's Jorgi, whose father wanted to be a philosopher and who taught his children all about ''"duality and the politics of non-being as related to platonic reality"''.

* Discussed in an issue of the ''ComicBook/ArchieComics'' where Moose looks to join the military and goes to Mr. Howitzer (a retired drill sergeant turned teacher) for advice. Howitzer tells him to finish high school first, and even encourages him to consider post-secondary education, explaining that the modern military has little to no use for uneducated soldiers.

* Many US military personnel, due to the emphasis placed on education within the armed forces, which is far more than many civilians would think or expect. The dumb grunt becomes more of a DiscreditedTrope the higher in the officer and [=NCO=] ranks you go, as college courses and additional certifications are key to standing out in a group of candidates for promotion.

Added DiffLines:

** US and Canadian militaries also offer educational incentives to try and recruit people who are smart enough for college and university but can't afford it, offering paid education in exchange for X years of service. Civilian certifications also honor military service: for example, an ED Tech (Electrician) for the Canadian Forces can challenge the Red Seal exam after completing his [=DP2=] trade training. In other words, someone can walk away from the Canadian Forces as a fully licenced electrician, without spending a dime on schooling, in five years or ''less'' of military service.

** The clearest example in [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra the series]], though, is the third season's BigBad, [[WickedCultured Zaheer]]. He's a formidable combatant - fighting him one-on-one generally results in a CurbStompBattle (unless you're [[PhysicalGod the Avatar]], or [[SpinOffspring one of Aang's children]] - ruthless and fiercely dedicated to his goals, and well-versed in Air Nomad history, culture, philosophy and poetry.

* Common with guerilla leaders, especially the more ideologically driven ones. A radical mullah may be well versed and a memorized of Quran, Hadith, Sunnan, Shariah, Fatwa, Arabic and local poetry, Islamic history, world geography, several languages, classical Arabic, theology, political theory, realpolitik, rhetoric, financial skills, business skills, management skills, and assymetrical warfare. The crummy and incompetent ones do not live long. Doesn't make them any less destrutructive, though, but the more you know about your enemy...
