* ''ComicBook/{{Fables}}'' has an odd example in Bufkin the [[TheWizardOfOz flying monkey]]; he is the librarian of the vast [[EldritchLocation Business Office]] and can perfectly remember where every book is stored and everything he's ever read (and he reads a lot). However, he's extremely goofy and generally lacking in foresight, self-control, and social graces (a RunningGag is that he throws poo at people and needs to be reminded that his fecal matter is ''not'' an appropriate topic of conversation.) Consequently, he's comic relief until he ends up trapped in the Business Office with Baba Yaga, her three OneManArmy henchmen and an escaped Djinn, at which time BewareTheSillyOnes comes into full effect.

* Averted by Literature/SherlockHolmes, who specifically warns against storing vast amounts of useless knowledge, comparing it to a man buying planks of any size rather than those that will fit into the lumberroom. However, his knowledge comes across as this trope instead as there is always some link to criminology.

* Black cab drivers in London are required to have an encyclopedic knowledge of the metropolitan area's streets, landmarks, and current places[=/=]events of interest. In order to do so, they have to pass an exam called "The Knowledge", where examiners call out start and end points and the exam-taker has to call out the directions as the examiner throws in twists that require detours. The exam requires multiple sittings and takes at least 18 months to complete. It is so grueling that prospective cab drivers' brains ''physically change'' during preparation.

* Series/{{Cheers}} has Cliff Clavin, who mixes this trope with LittleKnownFacts and a dash of FeigningIntelligence, leaving everyone never quite sure whether [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight the latest bit of trivia is one of the accurate facts or not]].
