* Swapping book-smart genius for street-smart [[TheTrickster cleverness]]. A thief archetype, detective or StreetUrchin who has traded in knowledge and intelligence for know-how and intel. They figure out mysteries, track down foes, and get into hard to reach places. If they're good with tech too you get a PlayfulHacker. Sometimes, they're just weirdos or rascals that are capable of overcoming their foes (while making a fool of them) through sheer creativity or ingenuity.

Sometimes the Smart Guy is more street savvy then they appear. If this is the case it usually makes The Smart Guy physically as well as mentally capable. This is the path of the BadassBookworm, or one who MinoredInAssKicking. They remain firmly planted as the Smart Guy, but are just as ready to fight as everyone else. The results are often impressive, and usually have the advantage of surprise. Who expects the little guy with glasses to be an asskicker?

* Though not actually a Five Man Band, in the Harry Potter books Hermione Granger is the brains of her trio. She knows spells beyond normal standards in school, gets top marks on everything, and basically used her knowledge to save her friends' lives over and over. Her catchphrase? "I read about it in (book)."

* 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.
