Added DiffLines:

** VideoGame/{{FalloutNewVegas}} has Mean Sonovabitch, a Supermutant employed as a bouncer/guard. He's incredibly simplistic and acquired his name because everyone kept saying he was one, so he assumed it was his name.
*** There's also another Supermutant who kept trying to get his car repaired and functional so he could drive it around. It was a toy car so small only a mouse could fit in it.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has Strong, another Super Mutant. He's not nearly as smart as Fawkes or Uncle Leo, and thinks the "milk of human kindness'' from ''[[Literatur/{{Macbeth}} "Mack Beth"]]'' is something he can actually drink to become a more powerful Super Mutant.
* In ''VideoGame/LiveALive'', we've got Masaru, a pro-wrestler with absurbly high health and a huge variety of damaging martial arts moves, but no matter how much you LevelGrind, his base IQ always stays at a paltry 25.

*** Which isn't to say that the Mariposa mutants weren't stupid. By and large most Mariposa mutants were stupid, possibly/partailly due to a mix of radiation damaging the genes of humans (as the Master believed) and/or due an airborne strain of the Forced Evolutionary Virus inoculating wastelanders without mutating them (as Lieutenant believed). Regardless, humans with little to no radiation damage and immunity to [=FEV=] are able to stay smart.

** And Frank. Kreese specifically describes him as "dumber than a box of blondes but strong as shit. Clumsy fucker, though; Jack can take him if he plays smart and fast." Both Little Eddie and Frank are several times larger than Jack, by the by.
** Kreese himself is implied to be at least as strong as Jack (since he talks about performing feats Jack can perform) and is completely illiterate. And he's not too good with numbers, either. He blames our schools.

* [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Cirno, the Strongest]] [[Subversion thinks]] she's this, but is closer to a SquishyWizard who [[BoisterousWeakling vastly overestimates her abilities]], and is furthermore considered intelligent for a fairy in the first place regardless.

** Neither are perfect examples. Cirno isn't that strong compared to the rest of the cast, or even a [[BoisterousWeakling regular person]] on a physical level, and she's mentally above average for a fairy. For the oni, Suika is fairly intelligent, as seen in her story path of ''Immaterial and Missing Power'', Kasen definitely isn't dumb and her status as muscle is dubious, and we just haven't seen much of Yuugi. A better example would be Utsuho, who is extremely powerful, being essentially a living sun, and not all that much smarter than an actual crow. While crows are quite smart ''for birds'', they're still just birds. And most other characters have intelligence that's just as human-like as their appearance.

* Little Eddie, the first boss of ''MadWorld''. Little Eddie loves his big bada-booms! He also promises to "murderlize" Jack, and the slurring of his speech suggests actual mental impairment to some degree.

** Brick, who was playable in the first game, is an eight foot tall behemoth of a man and melee specialist, who was either named Brick because his parents knew he wasn't smart, or later had his name changed to Brick to reflect that he isn't very smart.

** Brick, who was playable in the first game, is an eight foot tall behemoth of a man and melee specialist, who was either named Brick because his parents knew he wasn't smart, or later had his name changed to Brick to reflect that he isn't very smart. Subverted in the second and later games, however, especially the Assault on Dragon Keep DLC; he certainly ''acts'' dumb, but he also knows a lot about the ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' parody and gets into the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' spoof well before Mordecai does.
** Mr. Torgue is a GeniusDitz version. He is an enormous, muscular man whose entire brain has enough room for exactly two ideas at a time, and one of them is always StuffBlowingUp, leading to the owner of his galaxy-spanning company (who bought it from him for twelve bucks and a high-five) calling him "the dumbest person in the world". At the same time, he is a weapons design ''genius'' as long as your hopes for that weapon involve exploding rounds, leading to the Torgue corporation being one of the top shotgun and rocket launcher manufacturers in the game.

* ''Videogame/DarkestDungeon'': The Swine King is the gigantic, brutish and extremely dangerous result of summoning some extraplanar creature into the body of a common pig. Unfortunately for him, what he got was too stupid to be useful in the least, and he locked it up in the warrens. When you fight it, it actually needs a helper to tell it who to target.
