* On the group Team Kimba in the ''WhateleyUniverse'', Phase is probably the smart one, even if Chaka seems to be best at coming up with ideas in the middle of a fight. Phase is over-educated for a freshman in high school, is most likely to use the big words, and is a smart aleck too. The SmartGuy they go to for gadgets is Bugs, who is a HotScientist.

If the Smart Guy happens to be big and strong, he's a GeniusBruiser.

If the Smart Guy happens to be big and strong, he has enough of TheBigGuy elements to be a GeniusBruiser. Otherwise, he's a GeniusBruiser.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'': This is split between Tuuri and Mikkel. Tuuri was the one officially hired for this quality, but Mikkel being TheMedic, more than a decade older than her, and having expertise in things in which Tuuri does not causes him to frequently override her in that domain.

In terms of relationships, The Smart Guy may be part of a LittleGuyBigBuddy duo with TheBigGuy, since their [[BetaCouple contrast doesn't lead to fights]] as often as TheHero and TheLancer. Alternatively the smart guy can act as a loyal sidekick under TheLeader, to contrast with TheLancer whose force of personality and vocal dissent is more of a partner on equal footing.

* [[GadgeteerGenius Techies]] who have great skill with technology and engineering, in order to build and repair devices for TheTeam. As you push towards pure sci-fi they may have an innate higher reasoning capacity than normal humans, either because they're of an alien race or they're robotic and have technology literally as part of their bodies.
* The MadScientist (wizard in fantasy) who conducts all kinds of experiments to help the team. Like the techie, you can find them in the lab coming up with new {{Phlebotinum}} that does whatever the plot needs it to.

With a personality range from the introverted and weird TVGenius, the highly technical [[TheSpock Spock]], to the impossible cool HollywoodNerd, the smart guy is better defined by the skills he brings to the table rather how he acts. Common types that you can mix and match on your way to OmnidisciplinaryScientist are:
