Only Smart People May Pass – TV Tropes, riddle answers search engine.#Riddle

Only Smart People May Pass

This refers to any barrier that requires the heroes to solve some kind of puzzle, Riddle or test of skill in order to pass. It is often given by Threshold Guardians (especially if the guardian in question is a Riddling Sphinx). You must be able to work it out based on the clues you are given on the spot.

It’s often a defense against smart people who want to take whatever is being guarded like a Treasure Room. It can also be a Secret Handshake of sorts to only allow smart people inside like Mensa.

If you must come to it with some knowledge, it’s Only the Knowledgable May Pass. Sometimes if those who tried to deploy that trope were clumsy, they gave you enough clues to make it this, and conversely, if the answer to this is too weird or insane, you may really need to know it in advance.

The architect must have deemed this a better barrier than say, a lock and key carried on someone’s person instead of being in a chest elsewhere in the building. After all, keys can be stolen but knowledge is intangible. Unfortunately, this will not stop people who are evil in addition to smart or at least smart enough to trick the heroes into solving the puzzle for them.

See Block Puzzle, the various Stock Puzzles and Stock Videogame Puzzles, the Knights and Knaves puzzle and Solve the Soup Cans for examples of this. Note that the puzzle itself is often not terribly difficult; after all, the viewers have to be able to follow it (or solve it themselves, in a videogame.) This often leads to Fridge Logic about why it wasn’t solved earlier or what the point of such a simple puzzle really was. Expect even the least smart of protagonists to be able to find a way to solve what was supposed to be an ingenious puzzle.

This trope dates back to at least the Sphinx in Greek Mythology, making it Older Than Feudalism.

Compare Only the Worthy May Pass, These Questions Three and; also see First Contact Math, and contrast Only Idiots May Pass. Subverted in Doom As Test Prize, where one of these turns out to be a way to dispose of people who are a bit too clever.


  • The lower levels of Mahora Academy’s Library Island in Mahou Sensei Negima! is filled with these, as Negi and the Baka Rangers found out the hard way in an early chapter. However, these were deliberately placed by the headmaster, who appears to have plotted the whole adventure to force the Baka Rangers to study for their finals. The characters treat it more like Alphabet Soup Cans.
  • Ojamajo Doremi has Doremi answer a somewhat-Sphinx inspired riddle. “Thin in the day, thick in the night, it disappears when it sleeps.” Answer: Cat’s eyes.
  • Zatch Bell!
    • The show spoofs this with Poosophagus (Unko Tin Tin). He guards Faudo’s esophagus and threatens to drop the whole party in stomach acid if they don’t all get a question right. Fortunately, most of his questions are really easy, when he remembers to ask one at all. He only asks two hard ones:
    • 829,735 962,527 = ?. Posed to Kiyomaro, a supergenius who calculates the answer in his head. (“It’s 797,812,605,345!”).
    • Prove Fermat’s Last Theorem. A question that would be impossible for almost anyone on the planet, this was posed to Umagon, who can’t even speak. Kiyomaro forces Poosophagus to give Umagon an easier question, a more conventional riddle. Mainly, because Poosophagus didn’t know the answer himself.
  • Subverted in Princess Tutu. After a mysterious spirit kidnaps Mytho, Ahiru races to find him and is asked riddles along the way. Ahiru, being an Idiot Hero, gets them all wrong, but it turns out that the voice wasn’t testing her, but telling her who it was a lamp .
  • Subverted in Azumanga Daioh when Tomo is asking complicated puzzles requiring lateral thinking. Class genius Chiyo is stumped by them, but class space cadet Osaka answers them all without any hesitation.
  • In a completely justified example, the entrance exam in Detective School Q (Detective Academy Q) is filled with this sort of thing.
  • One of the pre-Hunter Exam trials in Hunter Ч Hunter asks you who you’d choose to save, your mother or your lover. When Gon notices the first guy (who chose the mother) was sent to his death, he realizes no answer is right, and says nothing. Again, no answer is right. They pass.
  • In Summer Wars, Kenji solves a 2056 Bit encryption not only on paper but in his head in under a minute to bypass lock-outs and other barriers put in his path by Love Machine.
  • In Yu-Gi-Oh!: Capsule Monsters, Yugi’s puzzle-solving skills come in handy quite a few times as he solves puzzles the group encounters on their journey.
  • At one point in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, our heroes have to hack into the police files. After breaking standard security and encryption, the final security measure is figuring out the winning move in a game of Duel Monsters.
  • In Dragon Ball Super, Vegeta suggests to Beerus and Champa that only those fighters who can pass through a simple intelligence test are allowed to participate in the tournament between Universe 7 and Universe 6. For some reason, he completely ignores the fact that he has Idiot Hero Goku and Fat Idiot Buu in his team, effectively eliminating Buu from the tournament and almost eliminating Goku in the process, while all members of Champa’s team pass through the test (although Magetta has trouble during the test), giving Beerus’s team a disadvantage in numbers.
  • In Prickly City, Carmen is assured only the smartest people are allowed in an exclusive club.
  • The tunnel leading to One-Eyed Willy’s ship in The Goonies is filled with many booby-traps, such as the most memorable musical riddle. It makes sense since, during Willy’s time, only people with a noble/high-born education would be able to read ”sheet music’. Even most musicians would only know how to play instruments, not read standardized notation.
  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
    • The Knights of the Grail have protected their treasure with a series of tests, each more fiendish than the last, to ensure that no unworthy man may pass. The tests are multi-layered: to prove worthy, one must find the clues to the tests elsewhere, interpret them correctly, and successfully act on the interpretation. Without the clues (which Indy’s father found in his decades of research into Grail lore) it would be considerably harder if not effectively impossible to figure out the traps before they killed you.

    Helena: You can paint it green.

    Gryphon: It doesn’t hang on the wall!

    Helena: You can nail it to a wall.

    Helena: Oh, come on. I just put that in to stop it from being too obvious.

Riddle 1

How can you add eight 8’s to get the number 1,000? (only use addition)

Riddle answers

The key to this math riddle is realizing that the one place must be zero. 888 + 88 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 1,000

Riddle 2

Two fathers and two sons sat down to eat eggs for breakfast. They ate exactly three eggs, each person had an egg. The riddle is for you to explain how

How to Explain the Riddle

One of the ‘fathers’ is also a grandfather. Therefore the other father is both a son and a father to the grandson.

In other words, the one father is both a son and a father.

Riddle 3

Part I. What digit is the most frequent between the numbers 1 and 1,000 (inclusive)? To solve this riddle you don’t want to manually do all of the math but rather try to figure out a pattern.

Answer to Riddle

The most common digit is ‘1.’ Can you figure out why? No hints until you try the next riddle because the next riddle is closely tied to this one.

Part II. What digit is the least frequent between the numbers 1 and 1,000?

0 is the least common digit even though 1,000 has three zero’s !

Explanations for both riddles

The digits 0 through 9 all follow the same pattern there is exactly 1 occurrence of each digit for every ten numbers.

  • For instance the digit 2 appears once between 10 and 19, at 12. And 2 appears once between, 30 and 39 at 32.
  • However, each of the digits 1 through 9 also appear in other numbers in the tens and hundreds place

Again, let’s look at 2 which appears in 20,21,22, 23, etc.. as well as 200,201, 202,203..

So to figure out how to answer the first riddle you had to see what distinguishes the number 1? Only that we are including 1,000 which would be the first ‘1’ in a new series of ten! In other words, the digit 1 only has a single extra occurrence (301 occurrences) compared to 2 or 3 or 9 which each have exactly 300 occurrences.

The reason that zero has the least (BY FAR at only 192 occurrences) is because zero does not have any equivalents to 22, 33, 44, 222, 3333 etc..

Riddle 4

Three guys rent a hotel room for the night. When they get to the hotel they pay the $$\$30 $$ fee, then go up to their room. Soon the bellhop brings up their bags and gives the lawyers back $5 because the hotel was having a special discount that weekend. So the three lawyers decide to each keep one of the $5 dollars and to give the bellhop a $2 tip. However, when they sat down to tally up their expenses for the weekend the could not explain the following details:

Each one of them had originally paid $10 (towards the initial $30), then each got back $1 which meant that they each paid $9. Then they gave the bellhop a $2 tip. HOWEVER, 3 • $9 + $2 = $29

The guys couldn’t figure out what happened to the other dollar. After all, the three paid out $30 but could only account for $29.

Can you determine what happened?

Answer to Riddle

There are many ways of explaining/thinking about this truly brain bending riddle! It all boils down to the fact that the lawyers’s math is incorrect.

They did NOT spend $9 3 + $2.

They spent exactly $27 dollars. $25 for the room and $2 for the tip. Remember they got exactly $3, in total back.

Another way to think about the answer to this riddle is to just pretend that the bellhop refunded $3 to the lawyers (rather than giving them $5 and receiving $2 back).

If the lawyers get $3 back and each takes $1. They they spent exactly $27 dollars.

Riddle 5

In a certain country of 5 = 3. If the same proportion holds, what is the value of 1/3 of 10 ?

Answer to Riddle

The answer is 4

Riddle answers

Riddle 6

A merchant can place 8 large boxes or 10 small boxes into a carton for shipping. In one shipment, he sent a total of 96 boxes. If there are more large boxes than small boxes, how many cartons did he ship?

11 cartons total

7 large boxes (7 * 8 = 56 boxes)

4 small boxes (4 10 = 40 boxes

11 total cartons and 96 boxes

Riddle 7

A farmer is trying to cross a river. He is taking with him a rabbit, carrots and a fox, and he has a small raft. He can only bring 1 item a time across the river because his raft can only fit either the rabbit, the carrots or the fox. How does he cross the river. (You can assume that the fox does not eat the rabbit if the man is present, you can also assume that the fox and the rabbit are not trying to escape and run away)

The key to solving this riddle is realizing that you have to take the rabbit over first and the switch the fox with the rabbit. See step 2.

Take the rabbit to the other side

Go back and get the Fox and switch it with the Rabbit

**The key here is that the carrots and the rabbit are not being left alone.

Take the carrots across

Go back and get the rabbit

Riddle 8

Three brothers live in a farm. They agreed to buy new seeds: Adam and Ben would go and Charlie stayed to protect fields. Ben bought 75 sacks of wheat in the market whereas Adam bought 45 sacks. At home, they split the sacks equally. Charlie had paid 1400 dollars for the wheat. How much dollars did Ben and Adam get of the sum, considering equal split of the sacks?

Every farmer’s part is 1/3(45+75) = 40 sacks.

Charlie paid $1400 for 40 sacks, then 1 sack costs $1400/40 = $35/sack.

Adam got $35*(45-40)=35*5 = $175.

Ben got $35*(75-40)=35*35 = $1225.

Riddle 9

An insurance salesman walk up to house and knocks on the door. A woman answers, and he asks her how many children she has and how old they are. She says I will give you a hint. If you multiply the 3 children’s ages, you get 36. He says this is not enough information. So she gives a him 2 nd hint. If you add up the children’s ages, the sum is the number on the house next door. He goes next door and looks at the house number and says this is still not enough information. So she says she’ll give him one last hint which is that her oldest of the 3 plays piano.

Why would he need to go back to get the last hint after seeing the number on the house next door?

Because the sum of their ages ( the number on the house) is ambiguous and could refer to more than 1 trio of factors.

If you list out the trio of factors that multiply to 36 and their sums, you get :

  • 1 1 36 = 38
  • 1 2 18 = 21
  • 1 3 12 = 16
  • 1 4 9 = 14
  • 6 6 1 = 13
  • 2 2 9 = 13
  • 2 3 6 = 11
  • 3 3 4 = 10

Since the number on the house next door is not enough information there must be more than 1 factor trio that sums up to it, leaving two possibilities: < 6, 6, 1>, <2, 2, 9>. When she says her ‘oldest’ you know it can not be <6,6,1>since she would have two ‘older’ sons not an ‘oldest’.

Riddle 10

This is a famous one. The classic Monty hall riddle!

The Situation: Riddle answers Your First Choice

You are confronted by 3 doors. Behind one of them is a car, behind the two others, you will only see a goat. Now, if you correctly pick the car, you win the car ! Otherwise, if you get one of the 2 goats, you don’t get the car.

So, pick any door. It doesn’t matter which one, but we will suppose that you picked door #2, as an example.

Riddle answers Should You switch?

Now, after you have picked a door and before finding out what is actually behind it, you are shown a goat behind one of the other doors.(Remember there has to be a goat in 1 of the doors that you have not picked. )

Let’s say you choose door #2, as shown above. For example’s sake, let’s say there’s a goat in door 1. The question and the riddle is : should you switch the door that you picked? In other words, in this example, should you now choose door 3? Or, should you stick with your first choice (door #2)?

There actually is a mathematically correct answer to this riddle: You should indeed change your choice. If you don’t believe me, just try out our free online Monty hall simulation.

A basket contains 5 apples. Do you know how to divide them among 5 kids so that each one has an apple and one apple stays in the basket?


There are a few trees in a garden. On one of them, a pear tree, there are pears (quite logical). But after a strong wind blew, there were neither pears on the tree nor on the ground.

A poor farmer went to the market to sell some peas and lentils. However, as he had only one sack and didn’t want to mix peas and lentils, he poured in the peas first, tied the sack in the middle, and then filled the top portion of the sack with the lentils. At the market a rich innkeeper happened by with his own sack. He wanted to buy the peas, but he did not want the lentils.

Pouring the seed anywhere else but the sacks is considered soiling. Trading sacks is not allowed. The farmer can’t cut a hole in his sack.

How would you transfer the peas to the innkeeper’s sack, which he wants to keep, without soiling the produce?

Sea Tales

The captain of a ship was telling this interesting story: “We traveled the sea far and wide. At one time, two of my sailors were standing on opposite sides of the ship. One was looking west and the other one east. And at the same time, they could see each other clearly.”

How can that be possible?

Ship Ladder

A ladder hangs over the side of a ship anchored in a port. The bottom rung touches the water. The distance between rungs is 20 cm and the length of the ladder is 180 cm. The tide is rising at the rate of 15 cm each hour.

When will the water reach the seventh rung from the top?

Hotel Bill

Riddle answers

Three people check into a hotel. They pay $30 to the manager and go to their room. The manager finds out that the room rate is $25 and gives the bellboy $5 to return to the guests. On the way to the room the bellboy reasons that $5 would be difficult to split among three people so he pockets $2 and gives $1 to each person. Now each person paid $10 and got back $1. So they paid $9 each, totaling $27. The bellboy has another $2, adding up to $29.

Where is the remaining dollar?

Small Hotel

13 people came into a hotel with 12 rooms and each guest wanted his own room. The bellboy solved this problem.

He asked the thirteenth guest to wait a little with the first guest in room number 1. So in the first room there were two people. The bellboy took the third guest to room number 2, the fourth to number 3, . and the twelfth guest to room number 11. Then he returned to room number 1 and took the thirteenth guest to room number 12, still vacant.

How can everybody have his own room?


Two girls were born to the same mother, on the same day, at the same time, in the same month and year and yet they’re not twins.

How can this be?

One-Way Street

A girl who was just learning to drive went down a one-way street in the wrong direction, but didn’t break the law.

Just in Time

What occurs once in every minute, twice in every moment, yet never in a thousand years?

Riddles from The Hobbit

In “The Hobbit” by J. R. R. Tolkien, there are several funny riddles that Gollum and Bilbo ask each other.

Alive without breath,

As cold as death;

Never thirsty, ever drinking,

All in mail never clinking.

Voiceless it cries,

A box without hinges, key, or lid,

Yet golden treasure inside is hid.

What has roots as nobody sees,

Is taller than trees.

Up, up, up it goes,

And yet never grows?

Batman Riddles

Here come the best enigmas that appeared in the Batman movies – usually Riddler asking Bruce Wayne.

If you look at the number on my face you won’t find thirteen anyplace.

Tear one off and scratch my head what was red is black instead.

The eight of us go forth not back to protect our king from a foes attack.

There are three men in a boat with four cigarettes but no matches. How do they manage to smoke?

What room can no one enter?

What is it that’s always coming but never arrives?

When is a man drowned, but still not wet?

    Treasure Hunt Riddles


    Riddle answers search engineSo what ARE those things that we need to solve to before moving on to the next stage of a treasure hunt? Do a quick Internet search and you will see them referred to as riddles, puzzles, clues and more. We like to say Treasure Hunt Riddles and that appears to be a very commonly search for term in Google but there is obviously no consensus out there.

    The previous statement may sound like a bit of a riddle itself. The thing is though, that riddles are actually types of puzzles. Wikipedia places riddles in the puzzle hierarchy under Guessing Games which is one of seven main puzzle types listed there. The common theme is that they are all things that are difficult to understand.

    Riddles are puzzles that have a deeper, hidden meaning and can be either statements or questions. They always have a solution or answer which is unusual for statements. Although many riddles rhyme, this is not a requirement.

    Going further down the pecking order, riddles can be either enigmas (requiring logic) or conundra (based on puns).

    Clues do not fit into the puzzle hierarchy with riddles, enigma and conundra. They can be described as information or a thing that helps to understand or find something else. Despite being almost antonyms for puzzles, clues do seem to fit in this context. The trick is to think of Treasure Hunt Riddles as keeping the treasure hidden whereas Treasure Hunt Clues help you to find the treasure which is hidden physically in some great hiding spot.

    Now that we understand a little more about the terminology here, take a look at Riddles and Answers for some tips on how to find lots of treasure hunt riddles that you can use in your own treasure hunts.
