A Teen Genius may sometimes also be BookDumb, despite the apparent contradiction. A female Teen Genius may be a DitzyGenius or a GeniusDitz. A younger version is the ChildProdigy.

** On the opposite side of the coin, Aaron Burr. He applied to Princeton at the age of 11, and he would have been accepted on his academic prowess too except the trustees stepped in and overruled him. Undeterred, Burr studied through Princeton's freshman and sophomore (1st and 2nd year) curriculum at home and reapplied to Princeton for the junior (3rd year) class. The school faculty compromised and allowed him to join the sophomore class.

* [[ComicBook/RobinSeries Tim Drake]] the third Robin, and current Red Robin is regarded as the smartest of Batman's proteges, and Batman had stated that Tim could potentially be smarter than himself. Tim had already figured out the [[SecretIdentity secret identities]] of Batman and the first Robin when he was ''nine'', [[AwesomenessByAnalysis by watching video of them fighting and recognizing Robin's gymnastic moves as those of former circus star Dick Grayson]].

* Most of ''Manga/Classi9'''s cast consists of teen geniuses: Class S- is made of [[BunnyEarsLawyer quirky]] but extremely talented musicians based on some of the most prominent classical European composers.

** Viciously deconstructed by Jouichiro Saiba [[spoiler: He became very good early on, and was pressured by his surroundings to reach even greater heights, but no-one acknowledged the hard work that made him who he was, and chalked all his successes up to 'genius'. The joy he had experienced evaporated in the face of pressure, and [[CordonBleughChef experimental cooking]] which he used to rediscover the joy and bring the expectations of his surroundings down a little didn't fill the hole. In the end, he had to leave both Tootsuki and cooking behind to not suffer a complete nervous breakdown.]]

* ''FanFic/YinAndYangSeries'': Romama, who is already ranked Major at his age (about 13), for his fighting prowess.
** Kirere can also qualify, at approximately age 11, since she's building invasion weapons for her platoon already.

* All EnidBlyton's BoardingSchool novels seem to have a handful of these characters. ''Literature/StClares'' has Felicity's musical genius and the almost [[MarySue Sue-ish]] Lucy Oriell who is perfect at everything, ''especially'' art. ''Literature/MaloryTowers'' has even more - even in-story Irene's talent for maths and music is called "genius", Mavis has the voice of an opera singer at the age of fourteen or fifteen, and no-one can match Belinda's drawing skills.

* Camilo of ''Con el diablo en los talones'' is the top student in his high school by a long shot. Protagonist/narrator Desi talks about him this way:
-->The teachers, tired of getting shown up when it was proven that he knew twice as much as them about anything, gave him a 10 as soon as they saw his name on the exam. They didn't even bother analyzing them. Why waste time?
