* The Quarians of ''Franchise/MassEffect'' are stated to be [[PlanetOfHats an entire race of master mechanics]], as they live a space-bound existence on giant {{Generation Ship}}s which also happen to be very old and pretty much constantly in a state of falling apart.

* "Mr. Fixit" from ''{{Constructor}}'' is an inversion: he's a cowboy builder who the player can send to sabotage the opposition's houses by "repairing" the [[KillItWithWater plumbing]], [[ShockAndAwe electrics]] or [[MadeOfExplodium gas]].

* [[RedVsBlue Caboose]], despite [[TheDitz being a flagrant dumbass]], has shown considerable skill at maintaining and operating technology. While this was originally limited to getting along well with AI, this has developed into an ability to activate and repair highly rare robotics.

* The literal "Mister Fix-It" stunt from ''TabletopGame/SpiritOfTheCentury'' serves mainly to reduces repair times to about one-quarter normal; this doesn't ''directly'' provide any bonuses to the attempt, but does essentially allow the character to more easily take "extra time" as required.

* Dino Manolis aka The Machinist of StormwatchPHD excels at this. Too bad, he sucks at most everything else in life. * Herschel Clay, [[spoiler:aka "Mantium"]], from ''ComicBook/PS238''. As the janitor for a school for [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual metahumans]], he's (obviously) a metahuman himself and has a love of tinkering. He's also implied to own Clay Industries, which sells most of the inventory, security doodads, and other components of the school and its security system. Exactly why the owner and main braintrust for a (presumably) multinational corporation [[NonIdleRich works as a janitor at a school]] is anyone's guess.

* Creator/AlanMoore's {{Promethea}} has an unusual example - Stan of the Five Swell Guys is clearly the Mr. Fixit of the team, but Marv claims to be the [[TheSmartGuy team genius]]. This subversion of SuperheroSpeciation becomes a plot-point when [[spoiler:it's revealed that Stan created the team's arch-nemesis, the Painted Doll, due to his resentment of Marv.]]

* In TheDCU, the JusticeLeagueInternational often turned to Kilowog of the GreenLantern Corps for all their tech needs. The most extreme example was probably when he built the Club JLI resort on the island of [=KooeyKooeyKooey=] for ComicBook/BoosterGold and ComicBook/BlueBeetle in a matter of hours. In later incarnations of the team, this role was taken by {{Steel}}. Both characters were also {{Genius Bruiser}}s.
