* Daedalus from [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Myth]] makes this OlderThanDirt, having build the Labyrinth of the Minotaur and pairs of wings that allowed him to fly, among many other things.
* In his footsteps follows Archimedes, a Greek inventor from the Greek colony Syracuse in southern Italy. He is best known for his work on lever action and bouyancy. While it's not entirely clear what kind of devices he actually invented and how well they worked, but he had a massive reputation as an inventor even during his lifetime.

** On the other hand, it's pretty hard to imprison a man who lives mostly in his own head, forgets to eat and often doesn't see how people could to turn his Moving Mountains Out of the Way Device (for mining, obviously) into something more sinister. Leonard of Quirm has all the cunning of a concussed duckling, and Vetinari keeps him supplied with, well, everything, and tucked safely away behind booby traps he himself designed.
* Abraham Van Helsing in ''Literature/{{Dracula}}''. Is there nothing he doesn't know about? Could also be seen as a forerunner for the idea of the genius with the funny foreign accent (he's Dutch) as well as a medley of eccentricities.

* The Count in ''ComicBook/SpirouAndFantasio'' can extract almost any chemical from mushrooms, build a submarine and electronical mind-control countermeasures, is old fashioned in his way of dressing and speaking, and can be very absent minded at times.
* Adhemar from ''The Adventures of Nero'', who looks like a baby in a smoking.

*** ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Dr. Gennosuke Yumi and the Morimori/Nozori/Sewashi triad. Note that the series also subverts this, since Dr. Juuzou Kabuto is sometimes The Professor and sometimes a MadScientist, depending ''heavily'' on which canon we're talking about. This was because GoNagai wanted to showing bluntly Mazinger-Z was a machine whose actions were completely depending on the pilot. In the original manga, Dr. Kabuto and Dr. Hell were NotSoDifferent, and as [[FallingIntoTheCockpit Kouji tried to learn how piloting it]], [[UnbuiltTrope Mazinger caused so much destruction]] as your average {{Robeast}}.
