Badass Bookworm: Fan Fiction

  • In Tails of the Old Republic, Miles "Tails" Prower of Sonic the Hedgehog fame is now 14 years old, up from his canonical age of 8, and he can both kick ass and take names in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. When it's not trying to kill him, the technology he's surrounded with makes him drool like a kid at a candy store.
  • The Second Try has Shinji and Asuka becoming milder examples of this trope by necessity, since they had to accumulate and learn the sum total of human knowledge after they're left being the only two humans left alive on Earth, and are pigeonholed into being a civilization of two.
