* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': As a former smuggler, Davos is well acquainted with the seedy underbellies of both Westeros and Essos, and still has many friends and acquaintances (especially Salladhor Saan) who prove very useful both to him and Stannis. He also remains a capable smuggler, though he's "lived within the law for 17 years."

* ''{{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''').
