Top 10 Smartest TV Characters
Breaking out of a prison with maximum level security, as well as two other high-security prisons, and then breaking his girlfriend out of another top-security prison is only for genius people. But this is not the most impressive thing. He brought down an entire anonymous company that would rule the USA and the entire world. The way he got the Scylla was unbelievable! He did dozens of genius moves, but the two that impressed me the most were the plan to access the office of Jacob (an evil genius) and how he outsmarted Jacob, incriminating him for the murder that Jacob actually committed! He is from another planet! By the way, sorry for my bad English.
He is no doubt the smartest guy but, I'd say only for season one, after that, the show tends to become less of a realistic and he becomes fictious smart.
A proven intellectual genius. Broken out of 2 top security prisons, extremely pretty and a very good guy.
The structural engineer who broke out from two prisons that were never supposed to be broken.
My favourite computer
Titled the "smartest man in the universe" by so far everyone in the universe. He even managed to be the smartest of all the alternate versions of himself, he's manipulative, brilliant and logical.
Titled Smartest Man in the Universe in infinite universe.
That technically makes him smarter than any other entity in any fictional universe.
Rick Sanchez knows everything. Rick Sanchez can do everything. Rick Sanchez is easily the smartest guy in the universe. He is basically God.
Has the ability to manipulate and trick an entire government, Is the smartes out of all his alternate selves, and has been titled "the smartest man in the universe" by many.
How is he so low. His IQ is 187, he was a child prodigy, he won a Nobel prize, he has an eidetic memory, he got a PhD at 14, is a theoretical physicist, he is a human calculator, can solve calculus problems in his head, He is technically in the super genius iq range, He can hack into a government super computer, has a wide range of knowledge from math to history, he has a job so hard you stare at a board of complicated mathematical equations and variables, he knows more about comic books than anyone ever, had a higher than 110% on his theoretical physics class at age 10, mastered calculus, Euclidean geometry, quantum chromodynamics, and Newtonian mechanics plus Einstein's general theory of relativity not to mention has never missed a single problem or gotten a math problem wrong in his life.
When it comes to pure smarts, Sheldon beats pretty much everyone in the history of T.V.. Yes, he's not very good and planning, and he is DEFINITELY lacking in street smarts, but pure academics? He's got it in the bag.
Plus he has the work ethic to sit through physics, which I certainly admire him for (AP Physics crushed my soul in high school and it will continue crushing my soul even when my future child has the same class ("Hey, can I have some help? " God forbid. )
He's insanely smart its annoying (for the other characters) but hilarious to the viewers watching!
How come Sheldon's not first? He went to college when he was 11, for crying out loud!
He is near the top of my favorite geniuses. I always love when he isn't up to date on the pop culture stuff because he's just not interested and has more important things to do!
Reid is far more smarter than Sheldon. Reid has three Ph.D. and knows far more than physics. And he got those Ph.D. before the age of 24. Sheldon only has two Ph.D. and a master's. So, who do you think is smarter? I say Reid. He's even smarter than Velma.
He's super smart, and he's just plain adorable. I know that doesn't have anything to do with the question, but it had to be said.
Come on! There is NO one smarter then Reid. Sorry, Dr Reid. Graduated from high school at 12years old, eidetic memory, can read 20 000 word per minute, Iq of 187, works for the FBI. Come on!
House has intelligence that is not one dimensional. He excels in science, medicine, language, human nature, biology, music and has the best jokes.
Simply has the most intellectual brain power in television history. I'd put Dr. Hannibal VERY close behind him, and Walter White at 3rd.
From the future, meaning he knows more than anyone from present time.
Only smarter than all of the others because of his futuristic intellectual resources
He's animated, cartoons generally go to the level of impossible.
Combined, his practical and theoretical intel could defeat any opponent, and he should definitely be higher ranked on this list.
Simply the smartest criminal of all time.
31, 31, you have got be kidding youself. He is by far smarter than everyone in the list, apart from gregory House and maybe Microft holmes. Also considering his idea of almost all fields and unmatched memory, he can be compared to few Star Trek characters who don't belong in this list in the first place.
Huh? There isn't a single character within top 10 who is as smart as him. Also, Leonardo from Da Vinci's Demons should be here too, maybe the only one smarter than Sherlock among show protagonists.
Sherlock is on every other top list and he has the smarts to prove it.
How the crud is Logan above Sherlock?
So smart that he had no life. By the way tat sexist liberal Brian is the dumbest person in T.V., third next to ozzy lusty, and Lois pewtershmit.
He is the mastermind, he should be placed among top 5, the way he planned the heist is mind blowing and yet believable.
He is the best
Definitely one of the smartest criminal master minds of all time!
Oh come on! He is the smartest ever.
Created Time Travel while still wearing a diaper.
Super genius baby invented a time machine can do amazing fight moves and has a whole bunch of guns
The only one on this list I would mark as more intelligent than the Doctor is Rick Sanchez. And even then, it's a barely there difference.
He is very smart and got out of very tough spots with only words. He fights things with his mind all the way to blood thirsty aliens to carnivorous planets(Don't ask).
Bro he is smarter than any one on this list he literally knows everything not joking, everything
