Top Ten Smartest Fictional CharactersThevcrewgeeks
The Top Ten
There is no worthy rival to even be considered half as smart as L and Light. This position is reserved for masterminds only.
The smartest character of all time.
No other guy is smarter than L
Can't get any smarter than L
Don't forget Sherlock didn't have access to technology and as a detective still caught his man every time.
His brother is smarter than him
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 should be the one
Best detective of my list
World's Greatest Detective
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.
I hate this idiot and this overrated show. - Iamkool
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
Nobody here can do what he did, and what he does...
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
His iq is 270 in comic
Has intelligence but his father is much smarter than in all occasion
He has a IQ of 251 smarter than any person on this list
It has been officially stated that Reed Richards is smarter than Tony Stark.
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.
Should be top 5
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.
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
There is no way judy hopps is smarter
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
Should be much higher, this guy pre-recorded his half of a conversation with someone he met only once. The recording was so believable the guy thought he was actually having a real conversation with lelouch
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.
Artemis should be
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
He is Smarter than you,he is luckier than you!
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.
He is pretty smart ig
A weak Greek boy in Ender's Game has become the smartest person in the world in the distant future

A mute beagle who is smarter than his owner.
