** Edward Weevil, the new Warlord of the Sea, is monstrously powerful, leveling cities on simple tantrums and easily wrecking members of Whitebeard's old crew in direct confrontation through strength alone; some even believe he's as strong as Whitebeard himself in his prime (which is part of why Weevil is convinced he's his son). He's also ''absurdly'' stupid, never really growing past six years old or so mentally and confusing a photograph for a mirror. His mother's the one doing all the thinking, and thus steers him wherever she wants.

** Taken UpToEleven in [[WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged the abridged series]] where he is [[TheDitz even]] [[LethallyStupid stupider]] and has the [[ManChild mentality of a child]].

* In ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'' you can see the [[HalfHumanHybrid hanyou]] Jinenji. He is very tall and strong, and can pierce a giant [[{{Youkai}} demon]] with only one blow. At the same time, however, he is also [[GentleGiant peaceful]], and prefer to run away before a fight. He has been [[HumansAreBastards abused by the villagers]] all his life, but he has never resisted, although he would have [[BullyTheDragon been strong enough to effortlessly destroy the whole village]].

* ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' has [[TheBrute Dauf]]. He is an Awakened Being who was on the third rank in the first generation of warriors. He is very tall and very strong, and of all (known) Awakened Beings, his skin is also the most resistant. However, he is abundantly stupid.

** Later, there is the undead warrior Ginkotsu. He is equally strong, but also very stupid, but, unlike Jinenji, [[TheBrute he is vicious]].

* It's repeatedly implied that this is the case for Marechiyo Omaeda in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', being that he's a gigantically large and intimidating UpperClassTwit and all... but this is actually just a ruse; He's the lieutenant of the second squad for a ''reason''.
** While he may be hiding his skills and intelligence, the fact remains that even when he does reveal them he's ''still'' something of a goof, but not as useless.
** Played very straight with the 10th Espada, Yammy, who's thick as a brick but tends to instantly kill people with his tree-trunk thick arms. Unfortunately for Yammy, everyone he's done this to has been on his side. Even when he reveals his ultimate power as [[spoiler: the strongest of the Espada, his method of fighting is so predictable it ends up ''boring'' Kenpachi]].

It's repeatedly implied that this is the case for Marechiyo Omaeda in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', being that he's exactly how everyone views Omaeda, who is a gigantically large huge and intimidating UpperClassTwit that doesn't listen, munches on rice crackers all day, and all... but this is actually just a ruse; He's the who only became lieutenant because of who his father was. However, it's ObfuscatingStupidity. He does have the second squad for a ''reason''.
** While he may be hiding his
skills to justify his position as lieutenant, and intelligence, the fact remains that even when knows his huge size and genuinely goofy personality makes people underestimate just how swift and strong he genuinely is. When he does reveal them fight seriously, he's ''still'' something of a goof, but not as useless.

* [[{{Mooks}} The Goats]] in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' are certainly used more for their insane physical strength than for their wits. And this can backfire hilariously, as poor Virgilia finds out in Episode 4.
