* The Beast from ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' (who's a GeniusBruiser) wears glasses when he reads. (And it looks kind of funny, considering that he's a muscular guy covered with blue fur.)

* Ponder Stibbons in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' series is a brilliant natural philosopher and theoretical wizard, who wears thick round glasses. In ''Literature/TheLastContinent'', when he's given a chance to [[ItMakesSenseInContext help design life on the Disc]], he plans for this trope to trump WizardBeard (which he can't grow) as a symbol of wisdom.

* Parodied during a sketch in ''Manga/SeitokaiYakuindomo'' when Aria comes to the student council room wearing glasses without lenses [[{{Meganekko}} for fashion purposes]]. Tsuda comments that they make her look smart (she's already the second highest ranked student in the school), but -this being ''Seitokai Yakuindomo''- she turns it into a sex pun.

* Subverted in ''Manga/{{Horimiya}}''. Hori was under the impression that Miyamura was smart because of his glasses, but it turns out that all of his grades (barring Phys Ed and Health class) are, to put it mildly, ''pitiful''. And when his grades start improving, he switches over to contacts.

* George Costanza from ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' claims in the episode "The Cafe" that he is not intelligent and that people only think he is, presumably due to his glasses.

* George Costanza from ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' claims in the episode "The Cafe" that he is not intelligent and that people only think he is, presumably due to his glasses. In fact, many viewers ''did'' assume George was smart just because he wore glasses, to the point that the creators had to dedicate an episode to George proclaiming (and proving) himself "Lord of the Idiots" to get it through their heads that glasses do not automatically equal smart person.
