** Princess Celestia counts as well: Equestria has been threatened by out-of-control [[GodOfEvil malicious gods]] twice now, and both times Celestia has brought about their defeat, not by using her considerable power, but by ''mailing letters'' to her pupil.

** Tyrion Lannister is first and foremost, though his antiheroic traits cause him to straddle the line of {{magnificent bastard}}ry. Nonetheless, he's one of the more heroic characters in the show, and definitely fights best with his mind.

Nonetheless, he's one of the more heroic characters in the show, and definitely fights best with his mind.mind, with an incredible ability to charm, manipulate, bluff, and talk his way out of a bad situation. For example: laying the groundwork for Bronn to champion him a full episode before he even knew there'd be a trial by combat. He's also able to talk his way from a situation where he's likely to be murdered by hill tribesmen to getting said hill tribesmen to serve as his bodyguards.

* Series/{{NCIS}} Agent Tony [=DiNozzo=], usually via ObfuscatingStupidity to make others lower their guard. A prime example is when he's being interrogated by [[BadassIsraeli Mossad Director Eli David]], and he successfully tricks Eli into revealing his agenda in front of the very people he was playing.



* Jean-Luc Picard on ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' is no slouch either. Watch "The Ensigns of Command" --- after exploiting a loophole in the Treaty of Armens, a document which is half-a-''million'' words long, he puts the [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Sheliak]] '''''ON HOLD'''''.

* [[ColonelBadass Colonel Roy Mustang]] from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. This is a noble guy who makes his "[[UrbanLegendLoveLife lecherous behavior]]" a ''[[JerkassFacade disguise]]''. There's also how he deals with the [[ZeroApprovalGambit Maria Ross Incident]].

* ''Literature/TheMagicPudding'': Bunyip Bluegum is the most calm, rational member of the trio, and tends to be the cleverest as well. Bunyip is the one who sorts things out when trapped in a KangarooCourt; by claiming that Albert was poisoned, which sends the judge into such a panic (he and the Usher having been gorging on the pudding through the trial) that he goes wild and starts attacking everyone with a bottle of port. He then snatches the pudding and gets out of there with his friends.

* Present in military thriller ''Literature/{{Victoria}}''. Between his maneuver warfare military trickster tactics and shady political manipulations, protagonist John Rumford soundly qualifies. His somewhat morally ambiguous mentor William Kraft takes it a step further into out-and-out {{Chessmaster}} territory.

* The main character Anargrin of ''Literature/TheAngaranChronicles'' is this. The best example of him doing this is in the short story ''[[https://www.wattpad.com/story/70424204-the-angaran-chronicles-an-ulterior-motive/ An Ulterior Motive]]'' [[spoiler: where he uses a infected with lycanthropy Emilia to lead a pack of werewolves to attack a Church of Jaroai convoy which is travelling to destroy a village they've deemed heretical. Both the werewolves and priests and the soldiers accompanying them, almost wipe each other out before Anargrin steps in and finishes off the three remaining werewolves himself. Effectively stopping the attack on the village and making sure the werewolves are gone for good.]]
