** The ''Discworld's Assassins' Guild Yearbook and Diary 2000'' [[LongList lists]] the various degrees Vetinari earned at the Guild as follows: Doctor of Medicine & [[DeadlyDoctor Applied Pathology]], Doctor of Music, Doctor of God Studies, Master Assassin, Master of Political Expediency, Master of Alchemical Science, Member of the Institute of Dance & Deportment, Bachelor of the Science of Inhumation & Diploma in Physical Education. Whew. And he's [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking quite good at drawing]] too. (The "Renaissance" part is particularly appropriate in a literal sense; "Vetinari" is a pun on [[UsefulNotes/TheRenaissance "Medici"]]. Plus he has distinct [[Creator/NiccoloMachiavelli Machiavellian]] tendencies, and is mentioned to be writing a treatise called ''The Servant'' which is clearly a takeoff of Machiavelli's ''Literature/ThePrince''.)

* Donald Glover is one of the more recent examples, as he is an actor, writer, director, and musician. You may know him for his show ''Series/{{Atlanta}}'' (where he plays Earnest), his work with ''WebVideo/DerrickComedy'' back in the old days, his role as Troy on ''Series/Community'', and/or his musical alter-ego, Music/ChildishGambino. Even within music, Donald was able to [[GenreAdultery transition from rap to funk]] for his latest album ''Awaken, My Love''. He also had a stand-up comedy special, ''Weirdo'', before going more toward TV and music.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed'' has a deconstruction with historical character George Glenn. As the first Coordinator he was a sports star, a MIT graduate with PhD at 17, built his own spacecraft and found a fossil in space (literally breaking the genre tradition of Gundam franchises to have no aliens, and gave out the coordinator technology that allowed him to be so smart and strong. However this led to the problems in series, with many people wanting their kids to be just like him, and many others being jealous of them. Wars started because his desire to create people to aspire led to separate nations of people who quickly degenerated into mutual genocidal desires.

** Leonardo de Montreal, perhaps unsurprisingly given [[LeonardoDaVinci his inspiration]], is a less extreme version. He solves problems through [[OmnidisciplinaryScientist Nightmare Science applied to everything]], but his Glorious attribute insists that he's Better Than You at everything else, too.

* Marie-Josephe Delacroix in ''The Moon and the Sun'' (a Vonda [=McIntyre=] novel) is a Renaissance ''woman'' -- her areas of expertise include mathematics, "natural philosophy" (i.e., natural sciences), and music. She can also draw reasonably well, which is a very useful ability for a scientifically inclined person to have in the days before photography.
