* Laius, of ''Manga/DungeonMeshi'', is incredibly knowledgeable about monsters, a great fighter, and incredibly brave. He also once tried [[ExtremeOmnivore (successfully!)]] to eat AnimatedArmor.

* Yoshiko of ''Manga/AhoGirl'' is stupid that calling her dumb as a rock would be an InsultToRocks and she has an attention span to match. However, she is a physical powerhouse, at one point single handedly taking out a gang of delinquents while under the mistaken belief they bad-mouthed [[TrademarkFavoriteFood bananas]], and is amazingly proficient at traditionally feminine tasks such as cooking.

* This Trope pretty much defines Tinker Gnomes, an offshoot of gnomes who appeared in the ''TabletopGame/{{Dragonlance}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}}'' settings. They're curious creatures who love to build, study, and improve mechanical devices, but ar often careless and foolhardy, and often go ''way'' overboard, creating weird and nutty inventions (or blowing themselves up). Justified, of course, because they are a divinely created species cursed with ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder, which outright compels them to go about creating devices in the most ridiculously complicated and unlikely manners possible, to the point they are the number one cause of FantasyGunControl in-setting. (Game-wise, Tinker Gnome PCs start with a +2 bonus to Intelligence Scores but a -2 penalty to Wisdom, making them smart, but lacking common sense.)

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Godel Kurt Gödel]]. He was an outstanding and truly deep-thinking logician and mathematician by whom UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein was very impressed. He also very nearly failed his U.S. citizenship exam by blithely announcing that he had found an inconsistency in the U.S. Constitution which made a dictatorship possible. He wouldn't eat anything cooked by strangers--when his wife was hospitalized for six months, he was unable to figure out how to cook for himself. He eventually died of starvation.

* ''Series/{{Bones}}''. Oh, Bones. So intelligent for solving crimes and yet so clumsy with social stuff... Because her understanding of human behavior is more intellectual than intuitive, she forms conclusions that make perfect sense in theory, but are flawed in practice because humans themselves are flawed. It was heartbreaking when she told Booth she was going to adopt a dog that had been trained as a killer, only for Booth to tell her that the dog had been put down, because her protestations that the dog shouldn't have been blamed were ''right''.

* Sanae Dekomori from ''LightNovel/LoveChunibyoAndOtherDelusions'' anime may be a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} out of her [[{{Chuunibyou}} delusions]], but she's still the top student of her grade, to Yuuta and Shinka's utter surprise.

* So and So from ''WebAnimation/TeenGirlSquad''. She gets straight A's and prides herself on being an academic overachiever, yet is utterly devoid of anything resembling common sense.

* ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' gives us Miho Nishizumi. At first glance, she's shy, socially awkward, and usually clumsy. She is also an expert tactician and commander in the sport of Sensha-do/Tankery, due to being from one of the most prominent families in the sport. The only thing that sets Miho apart from her family is that Miho [[NoOneGetsLeftBehind values the safety and efforts of her team]] which clashes with her family's "win at all costs" belief.

In the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts series'', particularly high magic potential seems to be tied to intelligence, with characters like Zexion and Aqua showing high aptitude in magic. The character with the ''highest'' magical potential in the series? ''Donald Duck'', who isn't just a mage, but also a powerful wizard. He's also, well, Donald Duck, with all his usual stubbornness and lack of common sense.
