The obvious one would be about knowing your enemy and yourself. If your character knows the resistance, immunities, and vulnerabilities of every monster you face, and communicates these to the party in a timely manner, it will go a long way to making him seem clever. If he has thoguht ahead and has ways to handle these things effectively, so much the better.
