* Gadget from ''RescueRangers''. She can build pretty much ''anything'' a situation calls for out of scraps and bits of garbage lying around, and ''on the spot'' at that! Like a rocket sled thrown together from a shovel, blowtorch and c-clamps ''in the middle of a chase scene''.

* The resident genius character in any ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' series can veer into this territory. Billy's a TeenGenius who graduated high school ''one'' year early, but normally, when a MonsterOfTheWeek's magical effect isn't something that requires a quest for the necessary EyeOfNewt or exploitation of the CurseEscapeClause, the solution is, "Billy goes into his perfectly normal garage and whips up a device that can stop it." (This means Trini counts too; she was always his helper and understood what he was doing, even if she didn't go in for his TechnoBabble and SesquipedalinLoquaciousness.) But the biggest might be Cam from ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm.'' The Zords are losing? Well, he comes in to the rescue in his own helicopter TransformingMecha... and the two copies of it that he whipped up ''in only minutes.'' Somehow.

* Rick from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' once described his abilities and limitations as "the ability to do anything, but only whenever I want". His intellect has allowed him to, among other things, invent CasualInterstellarTravel, open a PortalDoor to AnotherDimension, [[PlayingGod create his own universe inhabited by sentient life]], and turn himself into a pickle and back. Notably, this stuff comes so naturally to him that constructing a sentient robot from bits of junk he had to hand just so he can ask it to pass him the butter is less effort for him than just getting up from his seat and fetching the butter himself.

* Molly from ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' combines this with being a RobotMaster. She once built a super-strong sentient robot, overnight, out of a farmer's milking machine (who has since become a regular character); and built two (nonsentient) steam-powered robots out of ''snow'' (they both melted quickly)--because it was her first time playing in the snow, and she wanted to have fun. One of the [[{{Snowlems}} snow robots]] could [[TransformingMecha transform]] into an [[SiegeEngines ice ballista.]]

** I'd like to point out that while he's nothing special among the Gallifreyans, he is a mad genius in his own specific ways and he is often stated (by other Gallifreyans)to be able to do impossible feats which defy logic and laugh at the Laws of the universe. His plans usually work because he doesn't think they wouldn't work.

* And that other Doctor from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. Chakotay's mind has become detached from his body? The captain and the helmsmen have devolved into amphibians? Just another day in the life of an unappreciated Emergency Medical Hologram.
-->'''Torres:''' How did you manage to reintegrate his consciousness?
-->'''EMH:''' It involved three neural transceivers, two cortical stimulators and fifty gigaquads of computer memory. I would be happy to take you through the process, but it would take at least ten hours to explain it all to you. Needless to say, it was a remarkable procedure. I would consider writing a paper about it if there were a convenient forum in which to publish it.
