* ''Webcomic/DubiousCompany'': This is the closest Future High Priestess Sal gets to superpowers, since [[ReligionIsMagic religion is NOT magic]]. She can rapidly calculate the probability of anything based on [[AwesomeByAnalysis known factors]]. [[TearJerker Heartwrenching]] when she calculates the odds of escaping Kreedor's castle before her [[HumanSacrifice execution]] as [[DespairEventHorizon 0%]].

* Inverted in ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}''. Nano, a [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot robot girl]] who [[IJustWantToBeNormal wishes she wasn't]], apparently has trouble solving "3260 plus 260, divided by 320," even going so far as to pull out an abacus to work out the problem.

[[InnocentProdigy The Professor]] on the other hand...
-->'''Nano:''' You can get out (of the bath) in 10.\\
'''Professor:''' 20log√10!

** It's not made a big deal of or even really mentioned outright (in the anime, anyway), but Accelerator is GoodWithNumbers as one of the [[RequiredSecondaryPowers necessary abilities]] to actually use his esper ability properly. The [[GoodIsDumb nerf]] he gets is actually based on brain damage that affects his mathematics ability and requires a ''ten thousand person'' ''HiveMind'' to correct for a mere 15 minutes at a time. ItGetsBetter, as [=GROUP's=] enhancements are able to extend his Esper Mode to 30 minutes, then ''he himself'' manages to reduce his battery consumption by ''90 percent'' so he can use it for undertaking longer missions.

* An interesting variation in TabletopGame/JAGSWonderland: the inhabitants of Wonderland run on literary logic, not physics, but they are utterly incapable of understanding actual math (with the sole exception of the "beings" in the Department of Works). Humans can understand and exploit both, eventually obtaining superpowers. The kicker? [[spoiler:When humankind reaches the Department of Works, they'll "break" the world and [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence trascend reality and madness themselves]]. Not if, ''when'']].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', Judy Hopps proves herself to be this when she calculates just how much (untaxed) income Nick Wilde has earned with his scams, while blackmailing him into helping her investigation by threatening him with charges of tax evasion.
-->'''Judy:''' Two hundred dollars a day, 365 days a year since you were twelve. That's two decades, so times 20 which is $1,460,000, I think! I mean, I am just a "dumb bunny", but we are [[{{Pun}} good at multiplying]].

Added DiffLines:

* Crossed with IThoughtEveryoneCouldDoThat in ''Film/{{Matilda}}'', where Matilda, on her first day of school, unhesitatingly answers a multiplication problem the teacher was using as an example of what the kids might be able to solve in several years. The teacher has to use a calculator to confirm the answer, and is suitably impressed.

* ''SupermanRedSon'' establishes that Lex Luthor is a super-genius scientist at STAR Labs. This isn't really surprising, but this trope comes in when he casually hands his OSS handler a formula to balance the economy. However, he says it's just the principles, and the Treasury will have to do the number-crunching for the specifics.
