* 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...

* 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).
