* [[DichterUndDenker German philosopher Oswald Spengler]] (1880-1936) came close. His main work ''Literature/TheDeclineOfTheWest'' covers these topics: History, biology, geology, economy, laws, mathematics, architecture, music, painting, other arts, linguistics, politics, religion (or at least religious history), various languages, psychology, philosophy... Not necessarily in that order. It's probably no coincidence that he was a big fan of Goethe (see above).

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': BigBad Sosuke Aizen claims to have maxed out his entire potential as a Soul Reaper long ago, meaning that he has completely mastered all the Shinigami arts which include Zanjutsu (swordplay and Zanpakuto release), Hakuda (hand-to-hand combat), Hoho (speed), and Kido (spells). In addition, he is a tactician brilliant enough to be able to predict most of the actions of the Gotei 13 and Ichigo beforehand, a manipulator and actor so good that he had Soul Society fooled for decades, is socially proficient enough to garner respect from Shinigami and Arrancar alike using masterful use of charisma, and an accomplished calligrapher enough become a teacher for it. His sheer adaptability is showcased when he simply adjusted to his former superior Shinji Hirako's sensory-reversing Shikai, a feat that Hirako himself noted was impossible.

* Walter Bishop of ''Series/{{Fringe}}'' appears to be proficient in Biology (Anatomy, most remarkably), Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Pharmacology (he knows his LSD, all right) and a whole lot of other stuff that's not mainstream science (fringe science, as they call it). Well, according to Broyles he is "called by his contemporaries as a successor to AlbertEinstein."

* Hakuoro in ''{{Utawarerumono}}'' is a warrior king sort of fellow. He also has knowledge of agriculture, blacksmithing, hunting, chemistry, explosives, tactics, politics and several other fields. Probably even more. [[spoiler:Hell, he apparently even used to be an archaeologist before becoming a god.]] We don't get to really see anything he for sure ''can't'' do, apart from medicine. Which may not even count due to the different biology.
