* John Sessions generally gets this reaction from the ''{{QI}}'' audience, who either [[LoveItOrHateIt love or hate him]] for knowing rather obscure answers and explaining them at length, usually in a way that isn't all that funny, or his equally long, very dry humorous asides. His buzzer in one episode was "Sir, sir, I know the answer!"

* ''InDeath'': Dick "Dickhead" Berenski. He has an egg-shaped head, he is considered creepy by a number of characters, he whines a lot about how every cop expects him to put his or her case at the top of the list, and he often has to be bribed with alcohol, sports tickets, and what have you to get him to put said case to the top of the list. He is also the chief lab tech, and he is a genius in his work.

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', [[DefectiveDetective Erika]]'s ns are certainly nothing to laugh at, but she's also prompt to rub it on everyone's face. Cue cheers from the fans when Battler infuriates her by out-cultivating her on the topic of mystery novels.

* Leo in ''Super MondayNightCombat'', a clone of LeonardoDaVinci. He's the smartest guy in the room and he knows it, constantly talking about his genius and his many incredible achievements while looking down on every other pro in competition.

* ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'': Subaru Mimasaka. He is a genuinely highly skilled cook, being able to match several of the series' top players within their special fields. His attention to detail and knowledge of ingredients is second to none. His abilities as a recipe analyst and culinary innovator are top notch. His only flaw is his personality, whyich is widely considered so vile that no kitchen would hire him. He is obsessed with winning cooking contests, and does so by stalking his opponents, stealing their recipes and improving on them just enough to win, while rubbing their faces in the fact that he could improve the recipes they've spent their life perfecting in days.

* Schtein and Langstrom in ''Webcomic/StringTheory''.
* Rowan in ''Webcomic/LeifAndThorn'' is a variation: he's friendly and laid-back a lot of the time, and regularly charms people all the way into bed, only to [[http://leifandthorn.com/comic/the-incredibly-successful-dating-life-of-rowan-muscade/ snap and pick fights if they get something wrong about science]].

* Severin Cocorico in ''VideoGame/AviaryAttorney'', at least if you were to ask his "rival" Jayjay Falcon. He's a ''very'' good lawyer, TheStoic to a tragic degree, and doesn't bother hiding his disdain for the more excitable, less-polished Falcon.

At first glance, Adam the Insufferable Genius appears to be exactly the type who's doomed to learn AnAesop about humility: he's very talented, he ''knows'' he's very talented, and he doesn't mind telling you repeatedly what a talented person he is. But the difference between him and your standard-issue loudmouth is that he really '''''IS''''' that good, and when you need someone with his skills to save the day, he always comes through. So you have to concede that at least a ''little'' of his arrogance is justified -- not enough to make you forget that he's got the social skills of a buzzsaw, but enough that you can tolerate his ego if that's what it takes to keep him around.
