Top Ten Smartest Fictional Characters
The Top Ten Smartest Fictional Characters
There is no worthy rival to even be considered half as smart as L and Light. This position is reserved for masterminds only.
L was introduced as a mysterious character who had known to solve every case assigned to him. He had also tackled the greatest mysteries the world had ever known. Unlike other detectives, he barely relies on physical evidence and uses his intelligence and wits to solve the puzzle. His deduction is that of a mad genius that no fictional character can ever compete with. Definitely deserves the spot as number 1.
He's smart but not smartest. For sure he is the most overrated detective ever. Sherlock is a much better detective, and I really don't think L is smarter than Lelouch. I think Artemis Fowl is number one.
L is a detective from the show Death Note. Although he was up against someone with supernatural powers, he managed to keep up with every nook and cranny of the mystery.
Don't forget Sherlock didn't have access to technology and as a detective still caught his man every time.
While L definitely has intuition and deductive reasoning I believe Sherlock has even more variety on his overall knowledge. I mean yes L did get a perfect on those entrance exams but so could a lot of characters on this list including Sherlock.
He is the best character in ficitonal world I ever watch in sherlock webseries.Might be webseries is in the form nowadays. Best his presence of mind,mind palace and thinking ability and knowledge.
Such As Exception Character
Hacked into Darkseid's ship (near impossible). Created suits such as "The Justice Buster", "The Final Suit", "Batman Beyond suit", "The Insider Suit", which are all more powerful than any of Iron Man's Armors. Defeated Darkseid 2 times. BECAME THE GOD OF KNOWLEDGE. Smarter than Sherlock Holmes. Deserves to be #1.
Batman is number 1. He found an ancient group of unfindable sorcerers multiple times after they erased his memory. He was able to outsmart Brainiac who's IQ is greater than all of the population of earth. Etc, etc.
He earned 6 Ph.D's before the age of 21 in chemistry, biology, engineering, psychology, computer science, and forensics (solving crimes using science). He was able to outsmart Brainiac who is the smartest being in the DC universe. He is a better detective than Sherlock Holmes.
His detective skills are often compared equal if not higher to Sherlock Holmes. His immense knowledge in science, technology, martial arts together makes him one of the most smartest fictional character
He is the smartest person in all universes. That should say a lot
Rick's mind made a device go through universe and made a mini universe and pickle rick
Even 2nd is too low for him, 4th seriously? This guy created a suit using dead cockroaches!
You're talking to a guy who can sentence you to the machine of unspeakable doom, which swaps your conscious and unconscious minds, rendering your fantasies pointless, while everything you've known becomes impossible to grasp. Also every ten seconds it stabs your balls.
His iq is 270 in comic
Has intelligence but his father is much smarter than in all occasion
If L is number 1, which I agree with, then Light would have to be number 2
He beat the person who is Number 1 on this list by outsmarting him
Smarter than L yet is lower than him, should be 1
L, who is number 1 on this list told Light that he was more capable than he was and said he would surpass him. Light thought of things quicker than L did, and the author stated if Light never found the Death Note he would work with L and surpass him as a detective. Light is the smartest
It has been officially stated that Reed Richards is smarter than Tony Stark.
He has a IQ of 251 smarter than any person on this list
Highly intelligent and supreme
I voted just to say this batman literally in the comics makes a device that allows him to become the god of knowledge so... I disagree that tony stark should be higher than batman. If you need proof just surch god of knowledge batman.
Tony Stark should be no.3 instead of Batman. Iron Man is intelligent enough to make armours that have broken the light barrier, can lift over 100 tons, has fought gods and even cosmic beings to a standstill. His armors have no limits whereas Batman is just a man with simple gadgets, he's nowhere near as intelligent as Tony Stark. Batman has his own butler (Alfred) whereas Tony INVENTED his own butler (JARVIS, FRIDAY). In fact both Reed Richards & Tony Stark should be above Batman, this list is bs.
Has detective skills,creativity, street smarts, leadership skills
Genius, billionaire, philanthropist, scientist and engineer. Deserves to be number 1, or at least 2
If Batman were this smart, he'd be in a flying suit too. Instead, he's in a fast car with a glass pack on it. Cool car, but it doesn't fly.
What the fk about the place?
He literally kept his plan to destroy half of Manhattan to save the world secret from the omniscient Dr. Manhattan. Pretty impressive I'd say.
One of my favorite book characters of all time. - Alpha101
Not actually smart, there's a difference between basic memorization, and actual geniuses like Sherlock, Hannibal Lecter, and literally all important death note characters.
People say she's just into books. But she acts quickly and is able to think extremely rapidly on her feet, as can be observed during the confrontation with Bathilda Bagshot/Nagini. Hermione's the character who figured out that the Heir of Slytherin had a Basilisk in the castle, and was smart enough to find a way to tell Harry about the Basilisk. Hermione was the one who suggested they escape from Gringotts on a dragon. Hermione is the voice of reason and rationality within the Trio, and there's a lot more to her character besides memorizing a bunch of facts. Hermione is the one who Apparated the Trio out of Bill and Fleur's wedding, and she's the one who made sure the Trio had all of their supplies in case they needed to flee. That's not just reading a stack of spellbooks. That's coming up with an ingenious idea and having the skill to pull it off.
Should be top 5
This has to be higher I mean he invented time travel
He made time travel, bye bye.
He got smart and now has to that currently
How is he 19?
I love him because he is so sarcastic and doesn't care about people. Also being an atheist I relate to him
There is no way judy hopps is smarter
L and Light are overrated . Too overrated. Lelouch is supposed to be Anime's representative here. He outsmarted a being that can slow man's perception of time, a being that can read minds and a being who can go back in time hours before her defeat, as well as an empire with 25th century tech, not with brute strength but his mind.
Lelouch is the smartest Anime character at least top ten fictional characters. However, L, Light, Bulma should be below him. Dude can pre record a video of himself and predict what people will say. Lelouch also built a terrorist group who were ragtag at first to a powerful society capable of fighting the civilization that owned 1/3 of the Earth. Lelouch has outsmarted people who can read minds with his own mind. Unlike Light who was under the surveillance of only L and a few Japanese police, Lelouch was able to fool the surveillance of the whole Empire. His deduction and prediction is so cool. Like how he freed millions of Japanese legally from Brittania's rule and gained control of China the second word power at the same time.
Unlike L, Lelouch is not bound by decency and law. This is L's major weakness . He knew Light was Kira but couldn't prove it. In fact some of his methods would have gotten him arrested. Lelouch can act and make the dirt all by himself. This is why Mello was able to do more harm to Light than all L did in the space of some 25 episodes.
L and Light are in top 10 and lelouch is in what? 22? Even if he isn't smarter, he's always in the same league as them. In Code geass S2 Lelouch fools the surveillance of an entire empire by causing an alarm at the mall. Saves the very dumb jerks called black knights from Guilford and gets Rolo to join forces with him in the space of 24 hrs. Lelouch fooled Rolo by using the Geass on David to pretend to shoot Rolo and he Lelouch comes in to take the bullet making it look like he truly loved Rolo as a brother and doesn't want to see him die. Rolo falls hard for it but is all an act.
He is way too smart. Remember he was only eleven (or twelve? ) during the first book, where he conducted some intricate kidnapping plots and schemes. And he was already doing this for a while. In the later books he's older and still freaky smart, like, a genius.
Artemis Fowl is the smartest in his generation (and perhaps of all time, but you can't believe everything he says). When he is being modest, he describes himself as 'three-quarters of a DaVinci'. Artemis took out a scheme conducted by a mayor's twin when he (Artemis) was six. Also at six, he pointed at a wall with cracks and said, "See father? The cracks form a map of Croatia, once part of the Roman, Ottoman, and Australian Habsburg empires. Were you aware that Croatia declared independence from Yugoslavia in 1991? " (The Last Guardian) He has several degrees in several subjects. Artemis can also keep track of a bomb's erratic countdown, as well as retroactively save Holly. (The Lost Colony) The only thing he seems to be lacking, it seems, is being nice and having good motor skills.
Artemis Fowl would write MULTIPLE research papers at age 11. Better than all of those above him, including sherlock holmes. Batman is overrated and all he does is thrive off his money. Artemis Fowl holds a criminal empire at the tip of his fingers.
A mastermind teenager who has the capability to invent, innovate, and lie his way to the top.
I think it's the joker because he is just so anarchist and all what he wants is to proof that he is right. He also uses his surroundings as a guide like how he created Harley Quinn and how he showed gotham
s the monster inside Harvey dent(two face) then he turned Robin into the red hood. I'm not saying that Batman isn't as smart as the joker, but when you remember that Batman uses technology and joker just uses a deck of cards and a couple of bullets, and he is that smart an able to proof that he is right every time. I think that makes him at least at the top 5 smartest fictional characters. The joker is a genius in my personal opinion
Who else can get away from terrorist with flamethrowers with nothing but a mirror and a shoelace...
His iq is 187
How isn’t he above these characters? He is the most cunning character on this list; he was outside of God’s Masterplan in the Continuity, as we can see him rejecting to join God. He outwitted The Eastern Deities while powerless in his state. We see that he shaped existence to form the DC Multiverse, which encompasses nearly all knowledge he has created in the cosmology. He also has eons of experience.
He is Smarter than you,he is luckier than you!
Dude is one of the best prep masters. He has prepped and kicked the butts of the Avengers including Hulk and Thor and even the Fantastic 4. He's also a leader capable of taking back his country when it was captured by Doom. Doom in my opinion is smarter than 50% of the people on the list.At one time, he invented a device that could survive a universal destruction.
Spies on Avengers without their knowledge. Frees Lorna when Red Ghost, one of Marvel Earth's smartest was unable to. Designed his thrice blessed armor at 12 years old. Black Panther is good at deductions too. He deduced Reed Richard's ship would be trapped by Wizard. Hacks Deadpool' s teleportation device. Created a prison capable of holding THE SENTRY!
Black Panther is supposed to be in top 3. 60 is shameful. He is one of Marvel''s smartest characters. First of all, he commands the most advanced civilization on Marvel Earth and is far ahead of Sherlock, L, Light , Lecter and Batman's basic knowledge. Black Panther's most lethal intelligence weapon is his prep. He preps ahead of the Fantastic 4 and beats Richards who is far smarter than L who I'm shocked is first on the list. Tchalla easily disables a nuclear war head mid flightwhile depowered. He invented Falcon's wings as well as the Avenger's quinjet which can travel anywhere in the Galaxy and other dimensions. He mentally tricks Mephisto a being more powerful than a death note. Panther created a corrosive gel that eats Iron Man's armor . He led Wakanda to war in defeating the Skrull, one of Marvel universe's superpowers. He also created a device which takes out Thanos on the fly with no prep. Tchalla created cells which can cure death itself. In my opinion 60 is stupidity above ...more
LOL Lisa Thompson, Bulma and Nick Wilde are above B. Panther?! Where are the Marvel fanboys? The guy rules a nation on Earth that has begun colonizing other planets. He creates a whole forcefield from just hardware devices. He creates an x-genes suppressant. B. Panther has also defeated the likes of Thanos, Green Scar Hulk, Mephisto and Logos with his genius mind. Logos is the other embodiment equal to Chaos. Together, they've killed The living tribunal and erased 97% of the Marvel multiverse.
He had a lot of PHD's, plus he might have an IQ of more than 280
He has a 300 IQ
Good. I think should be first in the list because she has magic and outsmarts everyone.
A weak Greek boy in Ender's Game has become the smartest person in the world in the distant future
He is pretty smart ig
This is probably one of the worst lists in TheTopTens, lmao,well,this is just a normal list,if you know what I mean.
A mute beagle who is smarter than his owner.
