** The writers of ''XMenEvolution'' decided that wasn't badass enough and gave him the ability to transform his arms into any imaginable tool to help him make his creations. Considering the tendency of his creations to get away from him, it can be wondered if he's not as good as his comic and 1990s series counterpart or if [[DitzyGenius he's simply a lot less responsible]].

** And then there's the late bungling inventor B.S. "Bloody Stupid" Johnson, who's a peculiar inversion of this trope, whose inventions frequently bend the fabric of space and time in order to ''not'' work correctly (to say nothing of [[EldritchLocation his architecture]]), and often turn out to be extraordinarily useful for purposes they were never intended to fill and insanely dangerous when used as intended. For example, an ''Discworld/Hogfather'' mentions an ingenious contraption of his used by the kitchen staff at Unseen University to automatically peel potatoes... which is labeled by Johnson as an "[[{{Fingore}} Improved Manicure Device]]".

* Claudia Donovan from ''{{Warehouse 13}}''. H.G. Wells is a villainous version of the tropes.

* The various gadgeteers (follows the laws of physics) and devisors (considers them more of a guideline) of the ''WhateleyUniverse'' have this as their mutant talent. Ironically, WordOfGod has canonically stated that even ''they'' can't actually make a giant robot that works. Not that this keeps the relevant perpetual school project nicknamed "Tiny Tim" from having its own SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome during the Halloween battle...

* In the web novels ''TrintonChronicles'' there are two characters who fit this, one is Robert who took actual schooling on robotics and the other is Brandon who's super power actually allows him to understand machines.

* Tor from ''Literature/TheYoungAncients'' uses MagiTek, but otherwise plays this trope entirely straight. Within the first six months of story he has invented an instant dryer, nearly invulnerable personal shield, human flight, a color-changing aura as a party favor, heat/air-conditioning, personal temperature regulator, fire-starter, earth-mover, saved a city with a massive water filter (their sewers ruptured into the drinking water) and built a ''flying river'' to bring water to a drought-struck region. And all this is ''nothing'' compared to what happens when he really [[OneManIndustrialRevolution gets going.]]

* Chigara Ashada from ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}''. Not only did she [[SmartPeopleBuildRobots build two]] HumongousMecha [[SmartPeopleBuildRobots by herself]], but in her introductory scene she replaces a damaged power converter that took a team of engineers a month to make with one she made the night before—in her sleep, no less. The new part works so well that it actually improves the overall power efficiency in that part of the ship by 20%. Unsurprisingly, [[TheCaptain Kayto Shields]] takes her on as the Sunrider’s Chief Engineer.

** This trait also seems to be the hat of most [[ShockAndAwe electric type]] gym leaders. With the exception of [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Elesa]] due to being a model, [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Lt. Surge]], [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Watson]], [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Volkner]], and [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Clemont]] have had a huge hand in setting up the complex design mechanisms for their gyms for one reason or another.

** Barik is a dwarf who is known by the title of Master Mechanic. He invented all of his weaponry, including his blunderbuss, turrets, energy barricade, and rocket boots.
** Ruckus is a tiny goblin who fights in a MiniMecha that he built himself. He made his mech from a melted down blade which housed the soul of the elf king Bolthanas. Now trapped within the machine, Bolthanas has no choice but to serve Ruckus in battle as Bolt the mech.

* Many operators in ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege'' have engineering degrees and develop their own specialized equipment. Examples include explosive traps, signal jammers, sensors that detect people or electronics through walls, a drone with a mounted taser, and a breaching device that can punch a hole in a wall and launch several grenades through it.
