Any fictional smart characters. Can be very high-level geniuses or just very smart.

Intelligence often gets overlooked on here. I find smart characters really interesting and underappreciated.

Constantine & Sherlock Holmes are probably two of my favorites.

Meruem, Eurus Holmes, Shiro and Sora. These guys pretty much wreck everyone around.

Akagi Shigeru is definitely n1, and my favorite genius character.

I like that he's not just a genius. He goes beyond mere intelligence..... he toys with other geniuses because he's willing to take risks and bring himself where they are too scared of, and even when they do, they're still subconciously afraid and unable to keep up with him, who instead brings up his real 100% under these circumstances. He feels no pressure, and where others do, his mind just gets sharper. (or to better explain it, he feels the pressure, but likes it)

Osamu Mikumo

He is one of the very reasons why I'm glad World Trigger exists. Ever since Chapter 1 of World Trigger, Osamu has been the most realistic and strategic anime characters I've seen to date. He's weak both physically and speed-wise (He acknowledges that too). But where he's at his strongest, is his head. He's won many Rank War matches with his teammates by forming brilliant strategic plans to outsmart his opponents, and is going through a real-life human development to get stronger. Meaning, he's not going to get a bs power boost in 1 day of training, he's going to earn his strength and abilities through actual legit hard work. Something that most shonen protagonists rarely do. Ass-pulls are non-existent with Osamu and I'm glad he uses his head as a weapon.

When written with all PIS removed, Apocalypse and Galactus; and, than, Batman and Professor X; I like Wonder Woman and she was originally created to be smart, and, oh yea, her Joker or Lex, Dr. Psycho, as a required dual package. I like Bulma and Android 21 as a new addition to Dragon Ball Z.

If we are talking about scientists, then Urahara Kisuke and Mayuri from Bleach. Orochimaru from Naruto. Azazel and Ajuka Belzeebub from High school Dxd. The scientist of Justice from One punch man. Can't remember more right now.
