* He will turn into a ''bona fide'' MadScientist and wreak havoc usually motivated by [[AmbitionIsEvil personal gain]] or [[RantInducingSlight revenge]] on the scientists who dared to mock him. Parodies and/or [[DiscreditedTrope extremely cliché]] examples may spout out lines like "They all laughed at me...but I'LL SHOW THEM! ''I'LL SHOW THEM ALL!! [[EvilLaugh BWAHAHAHAAA!]]"''

** RationalWiki calls this the Galileo Gambit, as these theorists often mention Galileo as an example of someone who was persecuted by the establishment but was actually right all along. They have a page on it [[http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Galileo_gambit here]].

* Meanwhile, in another corner of the StargateVerse, Dr. Rodney [=McKay=] fulfils the same role on ''Series/StargateAtlantis''. In one episode, he is invited to a symposium by an old rival, and is summarily mocked by the entire theoretical physics community for his lack of (unclassified) output -- including BillNyeTheScienceGuy and Stephen Hawking -- even after he saves the world from behind the scenes. On the plus side, he gets the girl at the end of the episode. On top of all this, his sister is generally considered the smarter one, despite the fact that she retired from physics to become a stay-at-home mom. She occasionally helps out when Rodney or Atlantis is stuck.
