* ''FireEmblem'' is quite fond of this trope:
** Seisen no Keifu: Arden to some extent
** Thracia 776: Marty
** Fuuin no Tsurugi: Gonzales, Ward to an extent
** Rekka no Ken: Bartre. "Big words... make head hurt. I'm gonna go over there and punch that rock until my head feels better."

** Neither are perfect examples. Cirno isn't that strong compared to the rest of the cast (or even a [[BoisterousWeakling regular person]]), for the matter), 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.

* Minsc, from the ''BaldursGate'' games, is a blend of DumbMuscle, GentleGiant, BoisterousBruiser, and CrazyAwesome.
* Beat from VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou. His ridiculously slow wit is balanced by his equally overwhelming abundance of power.
* Berserker from VisualNovel/FateStayNight, along with all other Berserkers in the Nasuverse, where becoming stronger at the price of getting dumber is an explicit ability of members of the class.

Added DiffLines:

** Knuckles the Echidna is certainly the best example. He can break huge boulders bare handed, lift things many times over his weight and still falls for Eggman's "I'm good now, but Sonic is evil and is trying to steal the emeralds" lies.

* The first two ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' games are renowned for allowing you to not only play as this trope, but actually finish the game with it. Of course, you miss out on a lot of content, but people's responses to you are funny enough that it's worth it.

Added DiffLines:

** ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/PonyIsland'': Unlike his more sophisticated comrades, Beelzebub's programming isn't very complex, and thus the fight with him is downplayed into a very generic boss battle. Asmodeus even Lampshades this.

* From the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series.
** Big the Cat, though he's more simple minded than outright stupid.
