* ComicBook/KittyPryde of the ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' was introduced as this. So was her friend Doug Ramsey of the ComicBook/NewMutants -- [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway his powers had to do with languages]] and he was unfortunately [[BlessedWithSuck incapable of contributing anything else to the team]].

* Chihiro Fujisaki of ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' is an extremely talented programmer who was admitted to Hope's Peak Academy for her abilities. Hope's Peak itself has a policy of only scouting the most talented highschoolers in their given fields - however, this doesn't always mean they're a genius, and some students are outright dumbasses.

** When she appears, Twilight Sparkle's human-world counterpart is shown to be [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter even smarter than Sunset]]. One of the music video shorts shows her using [[MadScientist mad science]] to create a robot pal for her dog, Spike. And when she and Sunset Shimmer competed in a math competition in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames'', both were solving a complicated math problem at an equal pace, but in the end Sunset only barely loses being just a few digits off, while Twilight gets the correct answer. The difference is that while Sunset is [[JackOfAllTrades good at everything but the best at nothing]], Twilight is mentally peerless, but is [[ShrinkingViolet incredibly shy]] and TheMillstone in any kind of physical activity.

* Sunset Shimmer in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' series is described as a genius in the tie-in novels. She's good at [[TheAce just about everything she tries]], including creating a cell phone app that lets someone digitally see what they would look like in a set of clothes, and is at or near the top of all of her classes. Also, she's pretty much the human world's only real authority on magic, having to help guide her friends on its power once it starts showing up.

* A good chunk of the cast of ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'' are geniuses, with [[StudentCouncilPresident Shirogane]], [[TheOjou Kaguya]], and [[RecurringExtra Maki]] as the top three ranked second year students ([[NiceGirl Kashiwagi]] used to be fourth, but she fell to seventh due to spending most of her study time helping her boyfriend). [[MoralGuardians Miko]] is ranked first among the freshmen, and [[BrilliantButLazy Ishigami]] is GoodWithNumbers.

* Susan Sto Helit in ''Discworld/SoulMusic'' is something of an InsufferableGenius - a near-StrawVulcan who knows she knows more than all her classmates and most of her teachers, but ''doesn't'' know is why pointing this out [[LonelyRichKid doesn't make her popular]]. (It doesn't even make her top of the class; she's doing badly at Literature because she doesn't see the point of poetry and fiction.) In later books she's both grown up and learned that believing in logic on the Discworld is fine as long as you don't expect reality to co-operate.

** The first Invisible Kid was said to be a genius by human standards as well and created his own invisibility serum.

** The first Invisible Kid was said to be a genius by human standards as well and created his own invisibility serum. In the Reboot Legion it was established that, while Brainy was smarter, Invisible Kid combined his smarts with imagination - it was Brainiac 5 who created an anti-gravity metal, but it was Invisible Kid who used it to create flight rings.

* Wrestling/LouThesz had already successfully "worked" a match in a legitimate amateur wrestling tournament without anyone catching on before he turned pro at 16. "The Strangler" Ed Lewis decided to instruct young Thesz in hooking, believing he had world champion material, although Thesz wouldn't become a world champion until age 21, which is still younger than anyone else ever had, just too old for this trope.



* The long tenured Dominican Republic wrestler El Bronco #1 of San Cristobal may have been started before his teenage years, as he wore a mask to hide his identity after his father protested to "a young child" being in the wrestling business. Young Bronco would go on to lead [[EvilForeigner an invasion]] into WWC on the neighboring island of Puerto Rico.
