** It's also possible to max out your skill in Science or Medicine while still having very low Intelligence, so you can end up with a master computer programmer or a doctor skilled enough to cure any disease... who is dumb as a rock and can only have a conversation in HulkSpeak.



* Scooter from the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' series is, for the most part, a dumb as bricks redneck stereotype, with limited grasp of social interaction, and a crush on his sister. However, he also happens to be a brilliant mechanic. He's able to build and maintain cars ant teleporters using only the kinds of junk and scrap metal available on the hell-hole that is Pandora. The sequel shows that he comes from the Hodunk clan, who are all stereotypical rednecks with a talent for mechanical engineering.

* ''TenchiMuyo'': ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'':



** Seina Yamada, protagonist of the ''TenchiMuyo'' SpinOff ''TenchiMuyoGXP: Galaxy Police Transporter'', is purported to be [[BlessedWithSuck "blessed" with the worst luck in the universe]]. His bad luck, however, [[CursedWithAwesome has a tendency to land him in a number of favorable circumstances and eventually lands him his own command with the Galaxy Police]]. The reason for this being that he constantly automatically attracted looting or downright murderous space-pirates, across galactic distances, regardless how much they tried to avoid him. Since space is far too vast for the Galaxy Police to efficiently monitor, they finally had a way to round up the criminals, whereas Seina had so much "bad luck" that he actually started to spend it all. The bad luck also had a tendency to literally ''bleed'' onto other people. He isn't affected as much because he's used to it and, regardless of how bad his luck is, will only suffer injuries.

** Emily is another. When another character asks her to not tell anyone about a gift Emily had made for her, Emily says "I'm really good at keeping secrets.For instance, the government said I couldn't make any more because the algorithms I used were too similar to the ones they use when they make ..." At which point she slaps her hand across her own mouth.

* ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'': In "The Essential Guide to Droids", the boxy EG-6 Power droid is described as having been programmed this way. It's outfitted with an incredible grasp of engineering diagnostics, making it capable of running a remarkably detailed safety check on anything it's asked to fuel...but if told to walk in a straight line, it will dutifully march off a cliff (although, since a fusion reactor is a thing wise designers are careful with, it's probably durable enough to survive doing so).

** Melanie Bush, companion to the Sixth and Seventh Doctors, came across as being rather ditzy and naive but she was also a computer programmer and could be quite on the ball at times. Mel's {{Genius Ditz}} status is best exemplified during this exchange from [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho046FlipFlop "Flip Flop:"]]
-->'''Mel''': But, Doctor, we know they can't change history because we've seen the future already.
-->'''Seventh Doctor''': No. Unfortunately there is an awkward thing called "free will".
-->'''Mel''': Oh. You mean that pre-determinism is merely a philosophical abstract and that the physical reality of the universe is the one in which all potential actions are permitted, including those whose effect cancel out their own logical cause?
-->'''Seventh Doctor''': ... Yes, Mel.

* Barbie in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'', aside from being more of an ActionGirl than you might expect, seems to have a bit of a knack for political science when the heroes confront the BigBad.

** Sending an army of disposable, soulless robots to rule over Boston with an iron fist? Smart. Sending dopplegangers to murder and replace parts of families just to get a few measly parts and intel? PR went down the drain when they did enough of this to turn the Commonwealth into pure paranoia.
