* ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' shows us [[http://www.gocomics.com/foxtrot/2003/05/25 the dangers of finals week]]. Bonus points for Jason managing to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] [[MySkullRunnethOver two]] [[YourHeadASplode more]] tropes and make a ShoutOut in a single sentence.
** Parodied in a sequence where Paige lets Jason tutor her in math. Jason shows up wearing an "external brain" hat, much to Paige's annoyance ("Your brain'll be external, all right...").

* Non-humanoid example: The race of aboleths from ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' start out life with a braincase that extends roughly 1/4 the length of their eel-like bodies. Their brains include four tendril-like lobules that ''grow'' as they accumulate memories and psionic power, eventually extending internally from gaps in the back of the aboleth's skull all the way to the base of the tail.

* One of the step-capable hominids from ''Literature/TheLongEarth'' series acquires the nickname "lollipops", because their cranial capacity is so great that their heads appear spherical. A subversion, as the creatures aren't any more ''intellectual'' than humans, but use the extra brain-power to navigate the Long Earths; also a deconstruction, as it's stated that their females ''only'' survive giving birth because they step over to the next parallel world and leave the infant behind, rather than try to expel a huge-headed fetus.

* In the old Italian comic book ''Zagor'', a MonsterOfTheWeek was a wanted criminal known as the "Mutant" because of his oversized, bald cranium and psicokynetical powers. According to the Mutant himself, his cranium is so large because he has a "second brain" which allows him to perform telekinesis.

** The Leader, one of the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk's main villains, whose ComicBook/UltimateMarvel version combines this with a totally useless body. He even needs a metal frame to keep his head from snapping his neck. While other gamma radiation mutated characters had their physical strength enhanced, the Leader instead was given SuperIntelligence.
