** It's also revealed that [[spoiler:Bean was the sole surviving subject of an illegal genetic engineering experiment (all the other babies, Bean's siblings, were killed to cover up the experiment) aimed at creating extremely intelligent people with the side effect of a short lifespan caused by the SquareCubeLaw. Bean's brain doesn't have the same "off" switch as everyone else's and continues to grow and form new neural pathways like an infant's. As a result, Bean is fated to die at a relatively young age]].

* ''{{Tabletop/GURPS}}'' uses "IQ" as the short-form name of the Intelligence stat -- a measure of all forms of intelligence, independent of culture or species -- although it has barely any relation to actual measures of IQ. Apparently it wasn't meant to.
* ''{{Tabletop/Rifts}}'' and other Palladium Games does the same, with a note that the stat x10 is roughly equal to the character's IQ. Since average stats for a human are between 10-12, this works as a rule of thumb.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Springfield is left under the control of local UsefulNotes/{{Mensa}} members after the mayor skips town. They disagree on how the town should be run and eventually start arguing by stating their IQ at each other. Frink insists his 199 IQ qualifies him to be in charge -- but is soon "outranked" when StephenHawking arrives on the scene!

* A variation of this happens in ''[[LightNovel/BakaToTestToShoukanjuu Baka and Test]]''. Students are assigned to a corresponding classroom depending entirely on the score they received during the entrance exams, ranging from the prestigious ([[ImprobablyHighIQ Class A]]) to the insignificant ([[ImprobablyLowIQ Class F]]). The smarter students get better amenities and classroom equipment.

* PlayedWith in ''FanFic/AnAlternateKeitaroUrashima''. While Naru and the other Hinata Girls are impressed when they learn that Urumi has an IQ of 200, Naru asks "If you're so smart, why aren't you attending TokyoUniversity?" Urumi's reply that she wasn't interested causes Naru to deem her an idiot. Most of the Hinata Girls also decide that her IQ doesn't mean much when she joins those [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech calling them out on their bad behavior]].
