Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/BokuNoHeroAcademia'' has Yaoyorozu Momo as a justified example, her powers allow her to create anything as long as she understands the molecular composition of the things she wants to create, so she has been studying on a very advanced level ever since she was very young. Her intelligence stat is 6/5 on the same level as the the two [[BigGood Big Goods]], All Might and Nedzu, besides the BigBad [[spoiler: All for One]].

* Astrid Ellison (Resident [[BaseBreaker base breaker]] of the ''Literature/{{GONE}}'' series) Has a IQ of over 150, can quote ''whole passages'' of classical literature (Including Dickins, Shakespeare, Hemingway, Bronte) and [[WordOfDante learnt to read aged two]]...Did we mention she's only 14 when first introduced? She's more a literary and [[BadassBookworm book-based genius]] than a scientific or mathematical one, though.

Added DiffLines:

* Technically, the entire cast of ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'', but there are some standouts. To wit:
** Alice Nakiri holds a dozen patents related to molecular gastronomy and has been a fixture in Tootsuki's R&D division for years. She's 16 at the time of writing.
** Eizan Etsuya is 17, and not only the holder of the ninth seat on the [[AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil Council of Ten Masters]], but also implied to be a significantly better cook than several of his nominal superiors. He also runs a food consulting business on the side, has handled over fivehundred cases in total, and made enough money to cover ''all'' Tootsuki students' (that's about 1000 in high-school and an unknown number in middle school) tuition fees in his freshman year.

* Fernando in ''Webcomic/{{Drive}}'' is a subversion despite being the head engineer of his ship at 14. He didn't get the job because of an exceptional intellect, but because he's a member of the Royal Family. Only the ''Familia'' can service the ship's drive, and they're ''badly'' in need of more men.

* Jack B. Quick, youthful InsufferableGenius of the short-lived ''ComicBook/TomorrowStories'', published by the equally short-lived Creator/AmericasBestComics by the incomparable Creator/AlanMoore. A poor man's tongue-in-cheek TomSwift.

* DimeNovel character Johnny Brainerd and The Steam Man of the Prairies. Most likely the UrExample, predating even FrankReade and TomSwift, circa 1868. Earliest example of an "Edisonade," a kind of proto- Steampunk.

* BatmanArkhamOrigins: 15-year old Barbara Gordon hacks into Batman's comms in order to ask him to help with Penguin weapon shipments. Is it any wonder that she later discovers Batman's identity and becomes Batgirl (and later Oracle)?

* [[TheHero Roy]] of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem 6]] is possibly one of the best examples of a GuileHero lord in the series, having a knowledge of politics and how to manipulate them, as well as being able to lead a 50-or-so strong army, despite being one of the youngest ones ever at the ripe old age of 15.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has Prince Leo of Nohr, Prince Takumi of Hoshido, and potentially [[PlayerCharacter The Avatar]] again. The three are in the mid-to-late teens age range, with the Avatar as the eldest of the three, and yet the three are seasoned and talented fighters. The first two are explicitely referred to as geniuses.

* All the teen-aged fighters in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' have elements of this, but of note is TheProtagonist Kyo Kusanagi. He's said to have properly dominated his pyrokinetic powers and surpassed his father's own skills when he was 15 years old (which is also the time when [[spoiler: his BigBrotherMentor and cousin Souji almost lost himself to his darker side and thus asked Kyo to replace him as the family leader]]). Then, he became the winner of the All-Japan Martial Arts Tournament at age 18, and the Team Japan leader at age 19. The rest is history.
