* Kim from Creator/RudyardKipling's ''{{Kim}}''.

* Kim from Creator/RudyardKipling's ''{{Kim}}''.''Literature/{{Kim}}''.



* ''{{Rifts}}'', as well as other Palladium games, has the Rogue skill category, which includes skills like Streetwise, Find Contraband, and I.D. Undercover Agent. Also, the Vagabond CharacterClass has the exclusive skill "Eyeball a Fella," which works like the first item on the list in the trope description.
* The ''RoleplayingGame/{{Champions}}'' RPG uses the "Area Knowledge" skill to represent this.
* The Mongoose Publishing ''BabylonFive'' RPG uses this as a subsection of the "Knowledge" skill-focusing on an area provides greater bonuses on related skills (knowing the current events on the backstreets of a city is easier to find out (and provides more thorough information on roll results) than the events of a whole planet, for example).

* [[{{Badass}} Leon]] from ''VideoGame/{{F-Zero}}'' (more specifically, he made his debut in ''X'') is said to be not particularly bright. This is possibly {{justified|Trope}}, given that his [[DarkAndTroubledPast backstory]] involves in his home planet Zou being sacked by invaders (Leon himself [[ParentalAbandonment losing his parents]] and his [[EyeScream left eye]]) and still shakily recovering 12 years down the road, so Leon most likely never had the chance to receive a proper education. However, his natural instinct has made him ''very'' cunning. When the Arrows were vacationing on his planet, he showed superb handling of Super Arrow's King Meteor in his ''first'' foray with a F-Zero machine (impressing the couple to the point that they ''[[HappilyAdopted adopted him]]''). He had a slow start when he finally joined the F-Zero races, but caught on quick, resulting in a respectable track record over time ([[InformedAbility not that you'd know this]]; due to the poor A.I. he's been plagued with in ''GX'', he usually ends up '''dead last''').

* Ability to read others and determine intent. One need not be a LivingLieDetector to qualify as Street Smart, but a character is far more likely to be unduly suspicious than [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter overly trusting]]. The talent for deception also tends to work both ways, and the character can be quick with a bluff or misdirection.

* This is an important attribute for any [[TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}} Shadowrunner]] who wishes to become the next legend in underground circles; they must learn the harsh aspects of [[TheStateless going without a [=SIN=]]], relying on [[BackAlleyDoctor Street Docs]], looking for reliable fixers, knowing who to trust, being wary of any Mr. Johnson while accepting a run, treading carefully on any place run by gangs, a particular company, and/or security divisions like Lone Star, keeping an eye on their reputation to prevent them from being wanted on the list by Lone Star and any company who they decided to cross with, all up to using [[FutureSlang futuristic street slang]] in order to familiarize with the underground world. And that's just the handful of unwritten rules that a would-be runner of the shadows has to learn...
