*** The Beast was the peak of this, being a Warboss strong enough to match a ''Primarch'' with a mind to match. Not only was he a genius strategist, he also knew how to harness WAAAGH! energy to power fearsome reality-defying technology that put even ''Eldar'' tech to shame. The Beast even had Ork ''diplomats'' who could deliver a ''verbal'' beatdown to the High Lords of Terra, ''in fluent High Gothic''.

** This also applies to hybrids from tieflings and orcs. Tieflings are known to be often very smart. Orcs are very strong. And the common children of them often unite both qualities in themselves.

** The Knowledge Devotion feat allows a character to become this, letting you roll [[AwesomenessByAnalysis an appropriate Knowledge check while battling an enemy]] (for instance, Knowledge (nature) while battling [[WhenTreesAttack a plant]]) and then getting a bonus to damage proportionate to the roll. It's particularly useful for MagicKnight characters like duskblades, which get access to Knowledge skills and enough Intelligence to max them out.

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

* Ice hockey players Douglas Murray and George Parros are both the epitome of a stereotypical hockey player (large, heavy hitters who are not afraid to get physical during a game), yet they're also both IvyLeague grads -- Murray from Cornell, Parros from Princeton. Murray even runs his own business, [=UberTap=], that produces a three-spout beer keg tap.
