* Judging by the point pickups, the titular [[ChildProdigy boy genius]] of ''VideoGame/CommanderKeen'' has quite the sweet tooth, given that more than half of them are some sort of (usually alien) sweets.

* The Professor in ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}'' can always be expected to either be eating junk food of some kind, or trying to get someone to give her some. And as for the "genius" part, she's only eight, but she's capable of creating robots so advanced that it counts more like creating life itself.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack'': in the episode "Skooled", Flapjack discovers that he can get candy (a task around which the entire show is centered) for correctly answering questions that the teacher asks. Despite never having been depicted in any sort of educational setting before then (he was raised by a whale) , Flapjack is able to answer the vast majority of the questions the teacher asks and it isn't long before he's so stuffed with candy he can't eat anymore and is unable to move. This does not deter him, however. After answering yet another question correctly he instructs the teacher to place the candy on his cheek, declaring that he'd get to it later. * While immature, the Flash is one of the smartest characters in the DCAU Justice League universe, so much that he was once used as a computer to process information faster than otherwise possible. And he's aways eating high sugar content food:

Thinking requires energy, right? [[TheSmartGuy Some]] [[TheProfessor characters]], [[InsufferableGenius of course]], do more thinking than others. These characters will need to have a quick pick-me-up on hand, and most decide to eat some sweets. Perhaps the origin of this trope is the idea that showing a character eating sweets is a way to give the viewer clues as to his hyperactive nature, and it is harder to show the genius's mental hyperactivity on screen than another character's physical hyperactivity. [[TVGenius Geniuses on TV also tend toward the socially immature]] [[CloudCuckoolander and]] [[AbsentMindedProfessor the]] [[MadScientist eccentric]], and showing them eating candy may be a clue to this. Even if a genius character isn't [[SweetTooth constantly binging on sweets]], if he has a TrademarkFavoriteFood, it is likely to be sweet in flavor. Actually TruthInTelevision: the brain uses glucose as its primary source of energy [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypoglycemia and not getting enough is bad]]. Therefore, if you need to make your brains work a lot, you may need ''at least'' some sweet food...
