Added DiffLines:

* Tumpkin in "Literature/TheSixtyTwoCursesOfCaliphArenschadd" is bookish, and intelligent enough to solve the problem that has every other character stumped. The power of trope is strong enough that he wears glasses despite them technically being an anachronism in an ArabianNightsDays setting.

* In ''Anime/{{K}}'', the Blue Clan, Scepter 4, has ''three'' glasses guys, all of whom are the smart ones - one is an expert hacker; another, his subordinate, assists him in computer things and is a nerd in his own right; and the Blue King himself, something of a super-genius.
** The Red Clan's SmartGuy wears sunglasses - smart enough to wear glasses, but cool enough to fit with HOMRA.

to:

* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'': Characters originating from the science-based Sector Seven, such as Kokonoe, Tager, Litchi, Roy ([[spoiler:before he became Arakune]]) all wear glasses. The rare physical-based hard-hitters like Azrael or Makoto do not wear glasses and they're usually the lesser smart (in book-learning manner) characters from that faction.

** There is some (rather Machiavellian) justification for this beyond InsaneTrollLogic, however. Eyeglasses, while not an ''extravagant'' luxury, would be hard to come by in a poor, non-industrialized country like Cambodia was. Anybody capable of affording them would almost certainly be involved, if only indirectly, in the exploitation of the lower classes.
*** Nah, still InsaneTrollLogic, since most glasses wearers in Cambodia got them from charities. Pot was a classic TheSociopath, whose obsession with agrarian society as the only "correct" form of living led him to cook up any excuse to kill anyone other than a farmer.
