This trope is very much TruthInTelevision, and often TheFoil for JerkJock. While the latter are over-represented in team sports, GeniusBruisers often come from individual sports, such as track and field, gymnastics, skiing or swimming.

* Ruby Rose of RWBY can be considered this. Now for a Huntress, she's not particularly strong. She's more inclined towards speed and mobility, her sister being a better example of a purely physical fighter. However, her Aura allows her to accomplish superhuman feats (which is kind of the whole point of unlocking it). As for the genius half, she was able to design and build her own transforming scythe/sniper rifle. Not to mention, she is more or less on par with her classmates, despite being two years their junior, so she's likely this by the standards of 15-year-old Huntresses.

* WWE talent Mojo Rawley started working for Morgan Stanley as an intern in 7th grade, attended college on a full ride academic scholarship, graduated from the University of Maryland in 3 years and was on the Dean's List for all of them. He was all-ACC academically and earned numerous academic awards. He also still holds several University of Maryland strength and agility records, and played professional football for two teams before becoming a pro wrestler. Funnily enough, his wrestling gimmick is that of a meathead jock.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' has an interesting example in Absalom resident Dr. Bensi Skule, a renowned alchemist and {{knowledge broker}} who sits at the vast web of street urchin informants known as Skule's Army. Unbeknownst to most of Absalom's citizens, the real Dr. Skule actually died years ago, and his operations were taken over by one of his experimental subjects--an adult male troll whom Skule was vivisecting in order to uncover the secrets of its HealingFactor. The new Dr. Skule is an eight-foot tall, 300 pound predatory giant who can recover from almost any injurty; he's also as talented an alchemist as his predecessor, and is the one who assembled Skule's Army, turning him into TheFagin of the city.
