* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': Everyone should already know that Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury is a great student, but there is more to her than that. She's demonstrated proficiency at both CPR and mouth-to-mouth. She also has demonstrated fluency in both English and German. She is a top-ranked chess player, able to compete against chess masters three times her age. She has, on occasion, written lyrics for instrumental music she likes. Also she fights monsters in her spare time. And, to top it off, one episode shows she's a talented swimmer.

* Malcolm from ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' demonstrates mastery of almost every subject that is thrown at him, from advanced math to mechanical engineering to chemistry to literature to acting - in just the first couple of seasons, when he was still a preteen.

* Malcolm from ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' demonstrates mastery of almost every subject that is thrown at him, from advanced math to mechanical engineering to chemistry to literature to acting - in just the first couple of seasons, when he was still a preteen. In fact, he angsts about not being able to decide what career to pursue, since he excels equally at everything he tries.

* FuManchu in ''The Mask of Fu Manchu'' claims "I'm Doctor of Philosophy from Edinburgh, I'm a Doctor of Law from Christ College; I'm a Doctor of Medicine from Harvard. My friends, out of courtesy, call me Doctor." * Similar to the above, ''TheAbominableDrPhibes'' has a doctorate in theology from Heidelberg among a bunch of other degrees from celebrated universities, plays the organ, is a MasterOfDisguise, and is a quite competent PoeticSerialKiller.

* To a limited extent, [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Wedge_Antilles#Professional_abilities Wedge Antilles]] in some latter parts of the StarWarsExpandedUniverse, particularly those parts of the ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' and ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce'' which were written by AaronAllston. In the Literature/XWingSeries he feared that he would make a poor naval commander, but at some point it became apparent that he was not. One of the absolute [[AcePilot best fighter]] [[ImprobablePilotingSkills pilots]] in the galaxy, he also excelled at squadron command, was better than ''Admiral Ackbar'' in fleet exercises, and proved to be a ridiculously inventive master tactician and strategist. In addition, he was very competent at training new units to be highly inventive, not a bad mechanic, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and dabbled in architecture]].

* LupinIII has a vast array of skills, including being a formidable engineer and an olympionic-level athlete, impersonation, deep knowledge of the arts, and many, many others. Fujiko has many of the same skills, but is better at [[FemmeFatale manipulating people with her beauty]]. ** ''WesternAnimation/LupinIIITheItalianAdventure'' gives us Rebecca Rossellini (actress, model, businesswoman, fashion designer, thief), and a revived [[spoiler:Creator/LeonardoDaVinci]]. The latter actually faces Lupin on who's best in their best skill, that is being a genius... And Lupin loses one and ''wins two''.

** While he is dead by the start of the series, many people remember Prince Rhaegar Targaryen as being talented in several different areas. Rhaegar was very intelligent and studious, often spending hours on end reading in his youth. As he grew older, Rhaegar became an exceptionally talented knight who won many tourneys. He also played the harp and sang (both beautifully) and would spend time alone composing songs that brought people to tears. He was also exceedingly popular with the common folk, a talent in and of itself given that many lords in Westeros can't say the same. ** While there is some doubt that he is who he says he is, [[spoiler: Rhaegar's son Aegon has shown himself to be quite talented and intelligent. He reads and writes, is fluent in several languages, has a decent knowledge of mathematics, history, poetry, law and religion, and has been trained as a knight for most of his life. Especially impressive for a prince is that Aegon has also been taught to be self-sufficient as he is able to cook, wash his own clothes and work with his hands.]]

** Perhaps the most prominent example in the series, Prince Oberyn Martell of Dorne. He is well-spoken and exceptionally skilled with a spear, but he has numerous other talents. As a young man, he studied at the Citadel (the closest thing to a university in Westeros), making strides in several fields before getting bored and leaving. He then went on to travel the world, starting his own mercenary company and developed a talent for poisons. He's also a talented horseback rider. It's also rumored that he studied magic, which seems entirely plausible given his inquisitive nature.
