God -- best known for his role in The Holy Bible

1. Not only understands, but fully designed all the intricacies of the universe.

2. Made perfect plans millions of years in advance (or thousands -- still impressive).

3. Knows every witty joke that was, is, or will be.



I only jest.

Intelligence as most people speak of it, is really just a measure of the learning curve. It's a measure of how long it takes someone to learn the material and become competent in a given subject. Things like imagination and inventiveness, or the interpersonal types of emotional intelligence like charm and guile are tremendously difficult to quantify. So really, all that can actually be measured comes down to what someone knows, an example would be that while the human genetic profile hasn't changed in the last hundred thousand years, cavemen, though equally bright, didn't know much of anything. The average third grader's knowledge base would far exceed theirs and thus would be regarded as smarter.

In that sense, Skynet, from the terminator series, would be the smartest thing in fiction as it knew everything trivial, understood dominance roles in biological relationships, and was so competent in science and physics it built a working time machine. I can't think of any other character with an equivalent claim.

Kurisu Makise from Steins;Gate.

1. She published a scientific paper on time travelling at the age of 18; which is a pretty neat feat to do considering most people don't finish their PhD until at a much later age. She also appeared on the cover of Science magazine.

2. Her ability to be perceptive; like she's able to tell what someone is thinking or going to do.

3. Problem solving ability. During the anime, many problems arise such as the need to build or improve a certain gadget, she'll be able to do that.

The switch that would connect, all at once, all of the monster computing machines of all the populated planets in the universe -- ninety-six billion planets -- into the supercircuit that would connect them all into one supercalculator, one cybernetics machine that would combine all the knowledge of all the galaxies.

Dwar Reyn spoke briefly to the watching and listening trillions. Then after a moment's silence he said, "Now, Dwar Ev."

Dwar Ev threw the switch. There was a mighty hum, the surge of power from ninety-six billion planets. Lights flashed and quieted along the miles-long panel. Dwar Ev stepped back and drew a deep breath. "The honor of asking the first question is yours, Dwar Reyn."

"Thank you," said Dwar Reyn. "It shall be a question which no single cybernetics machine has been able to answer."

He turned to face the machine. "Is there a God?"

The mighty voice answered without hesitation, without the clicking of a single relay. "Yes, now there is a God."

Sudden fear flashed on the face of Dwar Ev. He leaped to grab the switch.

A bolt of lightning from the cloudless sky struck him down and fused the switch shut.

This is the correct answer.

Unfortunately some writers make Batman ridiculously overpowered with his intelligence. He can defeat gods, cosmic beings, anyone because he's prepared for it beforehand. "I already knew you were going to do that, so I prepared for that contingency".

My quote was from a shorty story called "Answer" by Fredric Brown.

Other similar versions would be Skynet from Terminator.
The Reapers from Mass Effect.
And the Cylons from Battlestar Galactica.
