A SmartGuy who Minored In Ass Kicking is a character who, like targets of TheWorfEffect, is among the strongest in the cast. The difference is that not only do they rarely get beat up, most anyone challenging them [[CurbStompBattle gets their ass handed to them.]]

* In ''Literature/TheSagaOfDarrenShan'', Kurda Smahlt is the one character like this in a mountain full of ProudWarriorRaceGuy vampires. He's a [[ActualPacifist pacifist]] and prefers not to fight unless he has to... and a vampire can't refuse a challenge during the Festival of the Undead.

* Doctor Impossible in ''SoonIWillBeInvincible'' wouldn't have survived as a genius supervillain if he couldn't also tear the armor off a wannabe IronMan with his bare hands when the occasion calls for it. It's suggested most people don't even realize how strong he is because his physical abilities are completely overshadowed by people who have superstrength as their main power.

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} is often considered a GlassCannon or SquishyWizard by Asgardian standards (though he has SuperStrength and amazing endurance in comparison to mortals). However, he has physically (or mostly physically) outfought several opponents, most recently the Dsir during the Siege event.

** Harry himself shows shades of this. Most people expect wizards to be all about magic and therefore useless when things get up close. Fortunately for Harry, his staff comes in pretty handy as a club and he even has training in using it similarly to a bo staff. Though he still prefers magic in a fight if need be Harry can kick ass physically too.

* Hank [=McCoy=], AKA Beast of the X-Men has always been a [[GeniusBruiser capable fighter belying a brilliant mind]], regardless of the media portraying him. Yet his incarnation in ''WesternAnimation/{{Wolverine And The X-Men}}'' states early on that he's "a pacifist by nature." Push comes to shove, however, he'll knock you down.
