* 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.

* NASA's [[http://rocketcenter.com/ US Space and Rocket Center]] is located in Huntsville, AL for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn_V good reason.]]]] In addition, Huntsville also boasts one of the largest research parks in the country, and plays a very large role in missile defense. 38 percent of the city's residents hold a 4-year college degree, well above the national average of 28 percent.

* Beethro from Videogame/DeadlyRoomsOfDeath. He's more medevil than southern, but he has to be smart when his line of work involves getting past booby traps while killing monsters.

* In ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', Astronaut scientist John Crichton hails from [[OnlyInFlorida Florida]]. This trope is taken even further with his "super-evolved" version who speaks with a clear [[EverythingIsBigInTexas Texan]] drawl. Ben Browder himself was born in Tennessee, raised in North Carolina, and went to college in South Carolina.

* In ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', Astronaut scientist John Crichton hails from [[OnlyInFlorida Florida]]. Beyond the general intelligence and scientific education required for all astronauts, Crichton ''invented his own space shuttle'' and discovered how to create wormholes, while still having a stereotypically "Southern" personality. This trope is taken even further with his "super-evolved" version who speaks with a clear [[EverythingIsBigInTexas Texan]] drawl. Ben Browder himself was born in Tennessee, raised in North Carolina, and went to college in South Carolina.

* Sheldon from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' is from [[EverythingIsBigInTexas Texas]], but this trope is [[DoubleSubversion subverted]] in that he doesn't have the stereotypical Texan accent and suffers SesquipedalianLoquaciousness. His Texan accent and shorter words do surface when he's very, very upset. For example, "No one calls me Moon-Pie but Meemaw!". He also knows all about Football and [[DeepFriedWhatever frying any meat that isn't chicken as if it were chicken]].

* Sheldon from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' is originally from [[EverythingIsBigInTexas Texas]], but this trope is [[DoubleSubversion subverted]] in that he suffers from SesquipedalianLoquaciousness and he doesn't have the stereotypical Texan Texan/southern accent--although to be fair, he's been living in California for a while, so he probably lost his accent and suffers SesquipedalianLoquaciousness. His Texan accent and over time. However, when Sheldon gets very upset over something, shorter words and his Texan accent do surface when he's very, very upset. For a little bit (for example, "No one calls me Moon-Pie 'Moon-Pie' but Meemaw!". Meemaw!"). He also knows all everything there is to know about Football football (despite not being interested in the sport) and [[DeepFriedWhatever frying any meat fries up anything that isn't chicken as if it were actually chicken]].

* 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 [[BaseBreaker 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.

* Old Man [=McGucket=] from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is a crazy hillbilly with a raccoon wife, who also happens to be an engineering genius. It's not just the years of LaserGuidedAmnesia that warped his mind. A flashback to a younger, sane [=McGucket=] has him follow up some {{Technobabble}} with "Why, that's mathematically feasible, I reckon *spits in spittoon*."
