* Dr. Vegapunk of ''Manga/OnePiece'' is described as studying both cells and battleship and came up with many of the technological advances used by the Marine. The guy is a OneManIndustrialRevolution. If it's a field that involves science, he's studied it, and except for ship building, pioneered it. He wrote the book on Devil Fruits, figured out what they are, how they work on humans and how to feed them to inanimate objects, studied the sea's energies to create various purposes and coating from seastone, [[spoiler:created at least ''two dragons'']], and is the leading expert on cybernetics. Pretty good for an unseen character who just set out to bring summer to his home island.

* In ''Dinosaur King'', Dr. Z spends a lot of his time working with machinery and biological modifications despite being a palaeontologist. Notably most of his devices and inventions are defective or [[StuffBlowingUp are prone to explode]], but it is played straighter with the Ancients, who are also palaeontologists, but have little trouble building a time machine or a device to detect powerful stones from the beginning of time, something even an advanced race of aliens couldn't manage.

* Mariel from ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' is originally introduced as an engineer, though ''[=StrikerS=]'' reveals that she's also acts as the Nakajima sisters' primary care physician. [[spoiler:This is actually a subversion since the Nakajimas are combat cyborgs; she deals with their mechanical parts while medical doctors deal with the biological ones.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/StarMares'', Gracenote (a not-even-a-scientist court bard) is tasked with finding a way of cleaning up after the Smooze, and of releasing Princess Celestia, Princess Cadance, and Rainbow Dash from crystal petrification. She also picked up a smattering of codebreaking from listening to her friend Wind Whistler talk to robots. To be fair, her methodology for all these tasks involves acoustics, which is both her field of training and her cutie-mark power - and to be fairer, nearly all of her efforts were either total failures or were being secretly influenced by nefarious forces.

* Noam Chomsky is knowledgeable in linguistics, philosophy, neuroscience and politics, and he's also a highly respected intellectual in each field.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' had [[VideoGame/MegaMan Dr. Light]], normally an expert of robotics, performing medical duties on a very human patient. Makes you wonder why they didn't use the opportunity to promote the [[SuperMario Dr. Mario]] game.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfRockyAndBullwinkle'': Mr. Peabody may well be one of the greatest geniuses in fiction. Never mind that he's a master historian who build a TimeMachine, various episodes show his expertise in chemistry, engineering, geography, mathematics, and biology, along with various other useful skills. He may even be skilled in alchemy, given how he was able to whip up something that made Leif Erikson's beard grow instantly. If there's a science where his knowledge falls short of an expert, it has yet to be revealed.

** Also, Old Man McGucket. Though his specialty seems to be robotics, [[spoiler:if his massive Gobblewonker robot is any indication]], he appears to be quite the competent scientists in other fields. [[spoiler:When it's finally revealed he was the Author's ''assistant'', this is played straighter than ever. He worked with personal computers before working with Ford, helped build a goddamn ''interdimensional portal'', and even created a memory erasing gun.]]

** Another case with Duelo: despite being a doctor, he was trained on a planet with no women at all and is completely ignorant of female anatomy, so he's at a loss when one of the women on the ship becomes pregnant, and concludes she has a parasite.

* Subverted in ''Anime/{{Vandread}}''. Duelo is a medical doctor, so when the crew needs to repair the ship's engine, he admits that he would be of little help. Despite this, his way of thinking about the ship as if it were actually a living organism gives him the idea of creating a power bypass. How exactly he's able to wire the bypass is anyone's guess.
