* In TheDCU, the ComicBook/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.

* Taken to the extreme in [[MarvelUniverse Marvel Comics's]] Forge, whose mutant ability helps him build machines by simply imagining what they should do, rather than working out the pesky details.

* Patch from VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleOfAges. He lives atop Restoration Wall and has the expertise to repair just about anything someone might bring him�provided they participate in his "trap, er� ceremony". Link is required to bring him a broken nut from Symmetry Village to repair it and restore its symmetry. Later, once Link obtains the Broken Sword at the end of a long [[FetchQuest Fetch Quest]], he can bring it to Patch who will transform it into the Noble Sword (or the Master Sword, if the player already has the Noble Sword by means of a Linked Game).

** Jury-Rigging, a perk the Courier can take, is an even worse offender, allowing to fix a PowerFist with RedBoxingGloves, an anti-material SniperRifle with a BB Gun, a PowerArmor with a metal armor, a leather armor with a business suit, a light bulletproof vest with the previous two pieces of clothing... How does the courier does it? Only s/he knows.

You want to [[ReversePolarity reverse the polarity]] on your particle defibrillator? Better get it to Mr Fixit quickly.

It doesn't matter if Mr Fixit has never seen ''it'' before, has never seen anything like it before, is unfamiliar with its working principles or doesn't even know the stuff the box is made out of; Mr Fixit will be able to reverse engineer it in time for the big finale. He will often possess MachineEmpathy, and can diagnose a broken gadget just by looking at it.
