The folks over at Dorkly ranked 26 scientists from various video games, comic books and shows based on their presumed intelligence and madness.

According to them the most insane and intelligent one is Rick from Rick and Morty, while Futurama's Zoidberg is just simply insane without a brain.

On the other side they have Reed Richards as a scientific genius (they might have forgotten his failed outer space mission that lead to the Fantastic Four) and The Muppet Show's Bunsen Honeydew, who's just slightly mad and has average intelligence (but that doesn't mean he's not scary-looking).

Also, it's funny to see Doctor Doom and Professor Farnsworth being so close to each other.

I'm not so sure that Krieger should be so high on the list. Brilliant, yes, but not smarter than Farnsworth who routinely create doomsday or universe altering devices, or bubblegum who makes life from lifeless matter on a regular basis.

And Doc Brown? Love him, but he made one (granted, impressive) successful invention in a large lifetime of failures. A time travelling car. Everything else was made using future tech, not something he made. Others lower on the list figured out time travel as well as other inventions (Dr. Wily for one).
