* Colonel Harland David Sanders may very well be ''the'' literal [[{{Pun}} Southern Fried Genius]]. Along with his "secret recipe", his use of pressure frying to cook chicken more quickly and crisply as opposed to pan frying it was one of the reasons why his KFC restaurant chain was so successful.

* In Literature/TheDresdenFiles, Ebenezar [=McCoy=] is acknowledged as one of the most powerful and dangerous wizards in the world. He has centuries of experience and knowledge to draw on. He lives on a farm in rural Missouri, speaks with a rural accent, and has typical rural values. Wizard Listens To Wind/Injun Joe calls him an "inbred hillbilly redneck," though in a [[VitriolicBestBuds joking manner]].
* ''Literature/SilverJohn'': The titular character is a wandering singer from the Ozarks, who also happens to have an almost encyclopedic knowledge of American mythology and folklore and knows hundreds of folk songs. It's stated that he could easily have gotten Ph.D.-s in both anthropology and musicology if he'd bothered with formal education, and he notes that he was the Library of Congress second choice for gathering and recording American folk songs.

* Another stand-up joked that you can basically say any stupid thing with a [[I Am Very British British accent]] and be believed, and how he feels sorry for southern nuclear physicists with the opposite problem.

* The Novakid in ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'' are, to a man, super-geniuses in any field they put their mind to, but are possessed of such [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny legendarily short attention spans]] that they never bother to preserve any records of what they built, as well as focusing primarily on things that are [[RuleOfCool "cool"]] rather than practical. The end result is that despite the fact that any given Novakid can build a functioning spaceship after merely observing one in action, the race as a whole is still developmentally stuck in a version of the Wild West, only with [[SpaceWestern laser revolvers and spaceships that look like trains]].

** 'Shine is [[MadScientist devisor]] from the Appalachias; [[HillbillyMoonshiner you can probably guess what he builds just from his codename]]. Despite having left school at the age of nine, by fourteen he is canny enough not only to cut some sweetheart deals with several distilleries, but ''also'' to recognize the value of going to Whateley to hone his talents.

* Brilliant biologist Dr. Jean Poule of ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' was raised on a farm, and has described herself as descended from "Scotch-Irish hillfolk" (which implies Appalachia). Her Uncle Cess who helped raise her certainly has the accent. She was the first in her family to attend college, where she got her PhD.

* SteveAustin is like this on ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch''; personality-wise, he's much like his wrestling personality, but he also invents miraculous technology like the Deathmatch Time Machine and the Super-Freaks.
