* AEGIS from ''Literature/{{Exhuman}}'' is a girl locked in a dark room for dozens of years with nothing but a blank computer. Within days of it coming back online, she's written custom drivers to get an abandoned industrial factory up and running and is churning out blueprints for her own spy network and personal robot army. All while giving romantic advice to her superpowered roommate.

* In ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', Donatello definitely fits the trope-- humorously, he's been referred to as a wizard on more than one occasion: the ''Back to the Sewers'' episode "Superquest", and constantly called "Mr. Wizard" by his dimensional counterpart in ''TurtlesForever''.

* Nina from ''Manga/UltraManiac'' literally * is* a Techno Wizard because she needs to use a PC to cast spells due to her lack of skill.

* ''Series/{{Primeval}}'''s {{adorkable}} genius Connor Temple. Among other magic, dude built the anomaly detector (and handheld versions) AND the anomaly locker AND figured out how to program a piece of future tech without ever having seen the equipment before. Now if he could just reverse-engineer Abby...

The list of these people includes but is not limited to [[MightyMorphinPowerRangers Billy]], [[PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Miss Fairweather]], [[PowerRangersTimeForce Trip]], [[PowerRangersNinjaStorm Cam]], [[PowerRangersDinoThunder Hayley]], [[PowerRangersSPD Kat Manx]], [[PowerRangersRPM Dr. K]], and [[PowerRangersSamurai Antonio]].

* Considering the fact that Nanaki of the Literture/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote series single-handedly turns the house he's cloistered in to run nearly completely in artificial intelligence (and an occasional driverless car), he falls into this.

* I present [[http://www.bellard.org/ Fabrice Bellard]] 1997 - discovered a new, faster formula to calculate single digits of pi in binary representation. Won the International Obfuscated C Code Contest twice (including one entry being a self hosted C compiler). In 2004, he wrote the TinyCC Boot Loader, which can compile and boot a Linux kernel from source in less than 15 seconds. In 2005, he designed a system that could act as an Analog or DVB-T Digital TV transmitter by directly generating a VHF signal from a standard PC and VGA card. In 2011, he created a minimal PC emulator written in pure JavaScript. Broke the world record for calculations of pi using a desktop computer instead of a supercomputer. Has written both the QEMU emulator *and* FFmpeg (a widely used multimedia encoding, decoding and editing library).
