Compare the GadgeteerGenius, who is more mechanically-inclined than electronically-inclined, and the {{Technopath}}, who is capable of magical control over technology. Not to be confused with MagicFromTechnology.

Doesn't necessarily have to do with the music genre {{Main/Techno}}, though in that case you might be looking for MagicMusic.

* Downplayed with Caleb from ''Film/ExMachina''. Nathan mentions that as a programmer he's "okay" or "pretty good" - though that's from the perspective of the most groundbreakingly advanced programmer in the world. He does manage to access Nathan's computer system and reprogram the doors.

* Alec Hardison from ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' embodies this trope - he can hack ''anything'' (except a hick). Bonus points awarded for the fact that, like a real life hacker, he uses social engineering almost as much as technical know-how to get what he wants...although he does have a tendency to take things a bit too far.

* ''{{Series/Nikita}}'' - Birkhoff, [[GovernmentConspiracy Division's]] chief computer expert. Bonus points for designing his own computer network ([[AwesomeMcCoolname Shadownet]]) and making it look enough like a computer game that any of Division's recruits can easily learn how to use it.

* Given that the majority of computer users don't step far outside of video games, browsing the internet and email, pretty much anyone with an education in the subject beyond high school level can appear to be this. However, old school hacker purists will always maintain that there is a clear and important difference between "hacking" (i.e., using an original, creative and/or unconventional procedure to get a computer or system to do something useful) and "cracking" (achieving unauthorized access to a secure system, usually for nefarious ends but occasionally just to see what's there or prove that one can do it.) Hackers in the original sense generally disdain and have no use for crackers, who are widely seen as inferior in terms of their knowledge and skill level (indeed they're more likely to trick the user into giving them access than force their way in) and who often use widely-known exploits to do Bad Things. See [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Script_kiddie Script Kiddie]]. Hollywood almost always ignores this distinction, to the extreme consternation of those that care about such minutiae.
