* Samuel Gerard from ''Film/TheFugitive'' has a distinctly Southern accent, wears jeans to work, isn't afraid of the occasional [[PrecisionFStrike well-placed profanity]], and is a high-ranking law enforcement officer whose specialty is hunting down dangerous criminals. He earns the trust of the title character by basically being a badass, and independently and near-singlehandedly solves the mystery of the film.

** Although to be honest, Jackson was more of a savant than a genius; he might have been brilliant at certain things, but he exhibited a mental disorder which we today would describe as OCD, and his students regarded him as a terrible teacher. If they didn't understand something in one of his lectures and asked for clarification, Jackson would repeat the ''entire'' lecture all over again, from beginning to end, verbatim, offering no elaboration on the salient point.

* Atticus Finch from ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'', though he certainly doesn't exhibit any real southern stereotypes, at least no negative stereotypes. He's sort of the genteel southern elite, an erudite, upper class Southern gentleman. Fortunately for his children and his client, he also displays an educated, liberal tolerance and gentility as well. (Let's not get into his portrayal in the sequel (we think) ''Literature/GoSetAWatchman'', although as strange as it is, it doesn't detract from the man's intelligence.) He ''is'' a crack shot with a rifle, though he tries to keep that fact away from his children.

* Andrew Higgins, inventor of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LCVP_%28United_States%29 Higgins Boat]] that made D-Day possible, came from Louisiana. General Creator/DwightDEisenhower called him "the man who won the war for us." Even UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler acknowledged his genius, calling him the "new Noah."

This character may have the same down-home sensibilities or otherwise act like a good ol' southerner, but is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin very, very smart]]. Maybe they exhibit SesquipedalianLoquaciousness alongside their [[SophisticatedAsHell Southern vernacular]], maybe they have a teleporter in their garage, [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls maybe they have 12 Ph.Ds]], who knows.

** And earlier in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', "Bones" McCoy did his undergraduate studies in Mississippi (although his accent wasn't quite so noticeable as Trip's). His birthplace is only defined as "somewhere in the South." Common {{fanon}} puts it in Georgia like his actor Creator/DeForestKelley.
