* GadgeteerGenius: Both heroes and villains fall into this category. Interestingly, occasionally the heroes's gadgets don't work properly, notably in "The Night of the Deadly Bubble" [[spoiler: when Jim and the GirlOfTheWeek are trapped in a room filling with steam; the explosives Jim tries to use to get out won't light because the matches are too damp. You'll just have to watch the episode to see how they escape...]]

A 196569 Creator/{{CBS}} TV series which combined two then-popular genres: TheWestern and the SpyDrama, following the anachronistic adventures of two Secret Service agents roaming the western United States during the UsefulNotes/UlyssesSGrant administration. James West (Robert Conrad) was a borderline [[TheAce Ace]], the ladykilling man of action, while his partner Artemus Gordon (Ross Martin) was a GadgeteerGenius and MasterOfDisguise. (Based on his work in this series, Martin the actor easily qualifies as a ''RealLife'' example of the latter.)

* KeystoneArmy: The villain in "The Night of the Red-Eyed Madman" has built his followers into a cult based on AsskickingEqualsAuthority, with his basic premise being that they would be able to defeat larger bodies of conventional soldiers thanks to their superior melee combat training. When West beats him in a one-on-one fight his group realizes the whole thing was BS and surrenders en masse.
