* Temperance Brennan in ''Series/{{Bones}}''. We don't know the exact number but it's 'significantly above' 163.

* Temperance Brennan in ''Series/{{Bones}}''. We don't know the exact number but it's 'significantly above' 163. In one episode, Booth and Brennan investigate a murder at a research institute that accepts only people with extremely high [=IQs=]. Bones herself applied but was turned down, as her chosen field has to do with the past, while they're focused on the future. Every scientist of the institute is shown to be as socially awkward and logical as Bones, to the point of treating sex as a natural release with zero attachment.

* The Engineer of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. Actual IQ is not specified, but with ''eleven hard science Ph.Ds'' it has to be pretty high.

To illustrate exactly how improbable a given IQ score might be, see the following table of statistics on above average [=IQs=]. Scores are from the Stanford-Binet test, the original and best-known IQ test -- see [[UsefulNotes/IQTesting IQ Testing]]. They follow a normal (bell curve) distribution with a mean of 100 points and a standard deviation of 15 points.

Scores on the Stanford-Binet test, which is the original and best-known IQ test, are designed to follow a normal (bell curve) distribution with a mean of 100 points and a standard deviation of 15 points. The table below shows the expected statistics of above average [=IQs=].

* In the guide for the SNES version of ''VideoGame/SimCity'', it's revealed that Dr. Wright's IQ is 1000. This makes [[AuthorAvatar slightly more sense]] when you remember [[WillWright who originally came up with the game's idea]].

* WordOfGod states that [[MahouSenseiNegima Chao Lingshen's]] IQ is 300. Of course, the comment was qualified with "maybe even seriously", so it's probably an exaggeration.

* In ''{{Zits}}'', Jeremy and Hector once took an Internet IQ test with Jeremy scoring impossibly low and Hector scoring impossibly high. Jeremy began to wonder if he was really that stupid and Hector started treating him like a dolt. Jeremy was only convinced the test was flawed after his father scored even higher on it.
