* Professor Utonium from PowerPuffGirls is possibly one of the kindest and most fatherly characters here- although in one episode he realises that pretty much everything good he ever invented was by accident, from the eponymous girls to Sloppy Joe's. * Professor Frink of ''TheSimpsons''.

* ''Faust'' is possibly the granddaddy of this trope. Although he has been presented in different lights, Christopher Marlowe depicted him as the most learned scholar on earth but so hungry for more knowledge that he sold his soul for it. Once this happens, instead of doing anything intelligent, he hits the pope with a fish. It makes sense in context. * Professor William Race of ''{{Temple}}'' by MatthewReilly. * Blackberry of ''WatershipDown'', given his limitations as a rabbit, is also TheProfessor. He may not understand the physics involved, but he'll devise plans that rely on buoyancy, tensile strength or leverage just the same.
