Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BumpInTheNight'' featured a pair of aliens named Sleemoth and Gloog as minor recurring villains. Both of them had visible brains and Sleemoth, the one with the larger brain, was fittingly the more intelligent of the pair. "Comfort Schmumfort" even had Sleemoth enlarge his own brain to make himself smarter, but this led to his undoing when Molly Coddle defeated him by making his brain so large that it exploded.

* Although we never actually see it, it's the reason for Film/JoeDirt 's mullet--his skull is malformed due to a birth defect, leaving a small bit of brain exposed. A hairpiece was used to conceal it, [[SquIck and his soft spot just kind of grew over part of the wig]].

* Subverted by Neanderthals: While they had a brain size comparable and even slightly larger than those of modern humans, the shape of the skull was quite lower that ours, and the visual effect was the opposite of this trope.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', the class has a report due the next day, and the excessive research causes everyone's brain to engorge as a result... everyone that is, except for Billy, who procrastinated the entire evening and never finished his report.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'' subverts this with the [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/abcoulix.htm Abcoulix,]] which has a giant brain not for purposes of intelligence, but rather for the purpose of generating electricity, as the Abcoulix was designed as an organic battery. This is played straight, however, for [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/krankenhyde.htm Krankenhyde.]]



* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': Mephisto uses the [[PowerCrystal Cosmic Crystal]] to become 'Cerebrex, Master of the Mind', and over time his body dwindled as his brain continued to grow. Or so it seemed: true to his usual modus operandi, it was all done through a mix of ThePowerOfActing, his [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower advanced mental training]], and the illusion-casting powers of the crystal, starting with an oversized costume headpiece (which hid a RayGun), and later using an animatronic drone to allow him to be somewhere else entirely while the heroes were occupied. While the original goal was to get the heroes to take him seriously as a villain again after his long trek through skid row (he couldn't be much of a distraction if he weren't dangerous, after all), but when he realized how ridiculous the new generation fo superheroes and supervillains were in the 1960s, he decided to just keep the trick rolling so he wouldn't have to personally put up with them as often.

* Research has shown that [[UsefulNotes/{{Autism}} autistics]] can have as many as 60% more neurons in their brains than most people. A major theory is that the "pruning" of excess neurons that normally occurs in development around age 2 or 3, doesn't happen or happens less with autistic children, leading to excessive sensory input and less ability to process and organize it.
