The Professor is quite often the least action ready of the team. This may be due to age, infirmity or just being physically weak. For this reason, the Professor may be left at headquarters while the more able characters handle the physical action. Occasionally, in a two man team, the Professor's teammate is there to specifically act as a bodyguard and handle the physical stuff. Sometimes, this bodyguard may be a government agent.

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', Pascal is the main scientist and also the oldest member of the cast. He mentors another scientist, Joseph, and is a ParentalSubstitute to Emilio. His inventions (particularly his disguises) sometimes get PlayedForLaughs, but he is undoubtedly brilliant and studies [[OmnidisciplinaryScientist just about everything]].

* ''Film/XMen'': Dr. Charles Xavier [[Film/XMenFirstClass earned his "Professor of Genetics" title from the University of Oxford]]. Even before he became a paraplegic, he was considerably less action-oriented than the other mutants on his team, and is often protected by a combatant (e.g. [[Film/X2XMenUnited Cyclops]], [[Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast Beast]]). Professor X serves as the TeamDad for the X-Men.

The [[SuperIntelligence nearly impossibly]] [[TheSmartGuy smart guy]]; A StockCharacter exemplified on ''GilligansIsland'' and ''MacGyver''. Probably started off as a TeenGenius and is capable of many an AssPull, DeusExMachina, or, um, [[ReversePolarity Polarity Reversal]]. May or may not rely on TechnoBabble. Is the source of much AppliedPhlebotinum, but is incapable of providing a solution that would thwart the show's premise (the Professor couldn't get the rest of the gang off that darn island, Ziggy couldn't bring Sam home on ''Series/QuantumLeap''). Often gets to be MrExposition. Fluent in SesquipedalianLoquaciousness and SoundsOfScience. If he plays a game, it's inevitably TabletopGame/{{chess}}, because SmartPeoplePlayChess. He's also very likely to be a TVGenius.

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': Mr. Boynton, Miss Brooks' LoveInterest and Madison's Biology teacher. His knowledge of his subject is prodigious, but his favorite topic of study ''has'' to be frogs.

* Professor Frink of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. He may have TourettesShitcockSyndrome thanks to his "Who-hey, Glavin" tic. He also qualifies as an amicable MadScientist thanks to his crazy inventions.

* 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.
