Under Harry Potter fanfic, which story is it referring to? I searched but no such story came up. It is about the 510 and 490 iq

Can I put an aversion on here? In the show Arthur, genius Brain is shown in one episode to have an IQ in the upper 140's/lower 150's range, which is completely realistic for a highly gifted person. This struck me when I saw it, because this was the first time I have EVER seen this trope averted for a "super-genius" character before. I feel like it deserves a mention because it is extremely unusual, but I'm not sure what the rules are about that.

If we also consider all the cases where genius or super-genius characters' IQs aren't mentioned at all, which is also an aversion, I'd say aversions of this trope aren't rare enough to stand out.

Am I missing something with The Big Bang Theory example? The follow-up bulletins imply that Sheldon's math was wrong, but it isn't.

Edit: I checked the history, and apparently it was initially reported that he said their combined IQ was 320. Someone fixed it, but didn't get rid of the responses. I'm deleting them now.

"On Night Court, the cast was given a modified intelligence test, and Bull Shannon scored 181, higher than anybody else in the court. He promptly noted that he was holding the paper upside down..."

In the series, Bull did show some surprising insights, problem-solving capabilities, and deep understanding of facts and figures. He was also very much an innocent, lacked huge amounts of common sense, and his weird leaps of logic worked against him far more often than for him. But you wouldn't like him when he was angry -and hurting his friends tended to make him angry.

Gihren Zabi has 240 IQ. Whether it is propaganda or not, no, he was evaluated as such before the Zabi's reigned supreme. Though he did become quite stupid before his downfall.
