** If you look at pictures or video of FDR giving a speech, it seems like he can stand just fine. But actually he's wearing leg braces, and during the speech he ''always'' keeps at least one hand on the lectern so he can steady himself.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Over the course of his career as an Auror, Alastor "[[MadEye Mad-Eye]]" Moody lost a leg, an eye, [[note]]Though this wasn't crippling at all, as he got a magical replacement that allowed him to see in all directions and through solid objects.[[/note]] and part of his nose, and acquired a series of nasty scars. He's still an extremely skilled wizard and strategist, even though he's pretty kooky and paranoid. He's also an incredible Dark Wizard hunter, and it's said that half the cells in [[TheAlcatraz Azkaban]] are filled because of him.

* The Silver Age version of GreenLantern villain Hector Hammond. Unusual for this trope, his handicapp and intellect is not natural, but the result of exposure to a strange meteorite, which causes Hammonds brain to mutate, but also cripples his body and takes away his ability to speak. He instead relies on telepathy to communicate.

* Lord Vetinari from the Literature/{{Discworld}} series is uncannily clever at [[ManipulativeBastard manipulating people]] and [[XanatosGambit creating plans that work to his advantage whatever happens]]. Fairly early in the series, he got shot in the leg with a prototype gun and uses a cane to walk for the rest of the series, and after that point he seems to get even more scary-smart than he was before.

* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' has Doran, the creator of three starting items, the Doran's Shield, Blade, and Ring. Born with a passion for crafting, he became an UltimateBlacksmith at the age of 15, until he suffered an accident that made him become "soft-minded", but didn't rob him of his passion. Where once he crafted single masterpiece items, he now crafts simpler items in large quantities.

* Doctor Octopus in ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpider-Man.'' Because of an accident, he lost the use of his limbs. He uses his metal arms to work, fight and move around. He's still menacing and looks rather creepy. Doubles as an EvilCripple.
