** The Cutie Mark Crusaders appeared to have held it when they were on the lookout for their cutie marks. Their talents were hinted at by Twilight Sparkle in Season 1's "The Show Stoppers" but they tried for another four seasons to get them by doing other things. However, this turns out to be subverted when they finally get them in the Season 5 episode "Crusaders of the Lost Mark" since their symbols turned out to be different than what they expected.

* In ''WesternAnimation/VoltronForce'' [=S2E1=] (''Inside the Music''), Pidge picks up the Idiot Ball and runs with it for a touchdown. He's so heavily invested in keeping his secret identity as the mastermind of the band "Stereolactic" a secret, that he doesn't even tell his TrueCompanions. This results in the [[KidSidekick Cadets]] wasting time and effort chasing him down, believing that he's the Drule agent, that could have been used finding the real agent.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': The only person who is safe from this is [[VillainProtagonist Mr. Cat]] - and even he was used for this in "Let's Play Catch the Mailman".

** Then there's the episode ''[[IdiotPlot A Prime Problem]]''... Let's just say, both sides, but [[EspeciallyZoidberg especially Autobots]] take [[TookALevelInDumbass several levels of dumbass]] just so the episode could work. [[´http://tfwiki.net/wiki/A_Prime_Problem The episodes' TFWiki article ]] sums it up pretty nicely.

*** On the other hand, Robotnik ''did'' leave said henchmen in the room to guard the cell, which was what let Sonic escape.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'', Sonic falls under this category at times despite being the smartest character in the show.
** In "Sonic Breakout", Robotnik captures Sonic's favorite comic book artist, and he decides that the best way to break him out is to get captured himself. Now, this in and of itself isn't idiotic. But assuming that Robotnik ''wasn't'' smart enough to build a cell specifically designed to hold his archenemy, who could escape a normal cell with ease? His henchmen may make that mistake, but ''he's'' not that stupid.

* In a ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episode, you have rebelling young twin heroes, one of whom can turn into different animals, real or not, and the other can turn into water. When these two heroes (and other young, misguided heroes) try to blow up the base they live in after [[TheReveal the]] [[CloningBlues reveal]], a group of Justice Leaguers tries to stop them. The twins attack a member of the Justice League by drowning him in a room filled with water and have a ''T. rex'', obviously not an aquatic creature, attack said hero, underwater. Again, this happened ''underwater.'' Who's the Justice Leaguer they fought? [[spoiler:Aquaman.]] Though the characters were in the middle of a mental breakdown, so thinking clearly was not exactly something to be expected. If they're inspired, as it seems likely, by the ComicBook/WonderTwins of ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'', then one could say they keep pretty true to the original characters.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'', Kion meets the ObviouslyEvil lions of the outlands, led by Zira. Zira tells him that using his superpowered roar against other lions will cause him to lose the roar forever, and he believes her and is rendered helpless for most of the episode. Except, his father Simba told him very clearly before that his uncle Scar, who had the roar before him, lost it not because he used it on other lions, but because he used it for evil and selfish purposes. This is compounded with the fact that the most stupid of his friends, Bunga, is the one who has to remind him of this, at which point he then easily defeats the outsider lions.

Added DiffLines:

* One ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' episode focuses on a series of salesmen who have been exploiting Hank's customer loyalty by constantly overcharging him, resulting in him paying over the odds for a new car. Hank is normally shown as being a master of most life skills, including household budgeting and automotive maintenance, so it is hard to believe that he could be so oblivious in this situation (especially when Peggy of all people is on the ball). To make matters worse the plot then involves Hank becoming the unwitting leader of a terrorist organisation.
