* ''ComicStrip/GetFuzzy'' shows Fuzzy to be one multiple times. The most famous example is when he fixed Satchel's broken watch. When Rob presses Fuzzy on how he knew how to fix a watch (remember, we're talking about a cat who thinks Chunky Munky contains ''actual monkey''), Fuzzy responds that he just kinda...did.

* The Jokaero of ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'' are basically space Orangutans, in both appearance and intellect. Yet somehow, they are also mechanical craftsmen par-excellance.

* Sasha in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. She's a BigEater who's so stupid that she doesn't even understand that eating a stolen potato in front of a her commanding officer is a bad thing, believes that people who give her food are gods, and goes so far as to steal food directly from her superiors and show it off to her peers. Still, she is fantastic with a blade, and one of the most effective combatants against the Titans. When she's not being distracted by food, at least.

* WWE once featured a wrestler called [[Wrestling/NickDinsmore Eugene]] who was billed as an idiot savant. He was mentally and socially way below the norm, but his wrestling abilities were pretty good, including pulling off numerous classical moves from the old days of pro-wrestling.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' has a DLC side mission where Shepard takes on a rogue Virtual Intelligence that has melded to the mind of the project lead's autistic brother. Through a series of holograms projected from the brother's mind, Shepard learns that not only was he a math genius, but he could actually imitate the geth language so accurately that the deactivated geth would respond to it.

He's also shown calculating square roots in his head when stressed.

[[folder: Music]]
* The Music/{{Gorillaz}} singer 2D may well be one of these, [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation depending on how you look at it.]] A long history of head injuries and painkillers have made him pretty dense, sometimes verging on TooDumbToLive, and yet he occasionally makes some strikingly philosophical or socially perceptive comments. At the very least he's a musical prodigy, writing and performing beautiful melodies unaided. (He's supposedly responsible for the entire album, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H58x-4xFnTY "The Fall."]])

* Jeffy from ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' had a difficult time fitting a star block into a square hole, yet was able to paint the Mona Lisa on an Easter egg, and make almost uncannily accurate chicken noises. He even said his ABC's backwards. And in "Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Part 6", he somehow caught [[Series/SesameStreet Cookie Monster]] in a Pokéball and taught him Thunderbolt.

TheRainman is a SubTrope in which the mental disorder is autism or [[AmbiguousDisorder something similar]]. See also GeniusDitz when the person has stupidity outside his field of expertise rather than a mental disorder. All three tropes can be confused with SeeminglyProfoundFool. Compare/contrast BunnyEarsLawyer, who is functioning properly despite a few quirks.

quirks. Also contrast SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining, where the person may have no particular mental condition but has focused on one (or a few) skills at the cost of everything else.

**This element is dropped from him in season 2 as he's much more mature, no doubt the result of Fisk no longer being there to pressure him.
