* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' gives us the head of Arachnos, Lord Recluse, the game's BigBad. He mostly stays in his tower, outlines plans and creates nigh-perfect tactics and XanatosSpeedChess level counter-attacks for the forces of evil. If you actually manage to beat his four CoDragons, endanger a major operation or, heaven-help-you, actually bring the fight to him, he will leave said tower and proceed to beat the ever-loving-hell out of you himself, before going right back into his tower and calling one of his armies to come clean-up the mess.
** Lord Recluse's attendants [[BadassBureaucrat the Arachnos Arbiters]] take after their boss to a lesser degree. They are more or less law-enforcers for the ''City of Villains'' (because the few base-laws that do exist there are crucial to their society). To qualify as an Arbiter one must be a veteran soldier of Arachnos and submit to Arachnos brain-conditioning to be both a worthy enforcer and psychologically incapable of corruption. Almost none of the Arbiters ever need to resort to raising anything more heavy-duty than a pencil, which is because assaulting one prompts an army sized man-hunt. But when one is actually given kill orders you will see all those years as working up the military-chain put to terrifying effect.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': Mack is a self-taught engineer (and a good one), but whenever things get hairy, he demonstrates exactly how he survived the HYDRA uprising. Eventually he becomes a front line agent full-time, but he would much rather be fixing the agency's cars and quinjets.
-->'''Mack's Brother:''' You're really good at this stuff, huh?\\
'''Mack:''' Reuben, I'm a mechanic. I ''hate'' "this stuff."

Compare BadassBookworm (for whom this is not an unusual trait), and the more extreme version GeniusBruiser. Contrast DumbassNoMore. See also MartialPacifist.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': The ten orders of the Knights Radiant were charged with protecting humanity from the [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Voidbringers]]. By the modern era, the common assumption is that all the Knights were frontline fighters, but the truth is that many of the Orders were scholars or healers. However, no matter the Order, every Knight had a [[SoulCuttingBlade Shardblade]] and [[PoweredArmor Shardplate]], making them extremely dangerous when they did choose to fight.

* The science-fiction version of Maturin is Adele Mundy in the Creator/DavidDrake RCN series. She'll always be clumsy on a starship, she's uncomfortable dealing with people rather than computers or books and she'd much prefer collating information to anything, but she's ''extremely'' protective of her TrueCompanions and a remarkably good shot with a pistol.
