** His unofficial catchphrase is "Shut up! I ain't that smart!" which probably says a lot. He manages to be TooDumbToFool at one point, where Akira attempts to deceive him in order to get a shot at assassinating a rather senile Very Old Joseph. However, Okuyasu is well aware he's a dim bulb, and so his solution when presented with an improbably easy case of SpotTheImposter is to ''punch people until he decks the correct target.'' Lucky for him, he gets it right on the first try.

* Katarina in ''LightNovel/DestructionFlagOtome'' runs almost entirely on id with no thought to future consequences, a trait that a lot of people actually envy or admire. Her brother acts as a kind of external superego but barely even manages to make her behavior even slightly reasonable. She's also completely oblivious to how popular she is, giving rise to the fan nickname Bakarina.

** Jaudai of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' -- Goal ToBeAMaster? Check. Spiky hair? Check. TooDumbToLive? Check. Idealist? Check. Magnet for TrueCompanions? Check. BigEater? Check. BookDumb? Double check. CharacterDevelopment into AllLovingHero? [[IneffectualLoner Just the opposite]]. [[{{Deconstruction}} There's only so much a kid can take]].

* Every hero in works by Creator/MitsuruAdachi (most famous works include ''Manga/{{Touch}}'', ''Manga/H2'', ''Manga/{{Miyuki}}'', ''Manga/CrossGame'') would be labeled under the "Lovable Idiot" category. Though they often act like Idiot Jerks they're actually quite smart and tend to be sarcastic and smart mouthed.

* Played with in ''Manga/FirePunch''. Agni, the main character, often comes across as rather dim for an adult. However, its generally justified as he's mentally a 14 year old, considering he spent the past 8 years of his life set on fire in isolation due to being set on fire with special fire and having massive regenerative abilities. And on top of that, he notes that even though he has reached the point where he can tolerate being on fire all the time, it still hurts and makes it hard for his brain to focus on more complex thoughts. So he tries to leave the thinking to the companions he picks up along the way.

* [[Anime/DigimonAdventure Tai]], [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Davis]], [[Anime/DigimonFrontier Takuya]], and [[Anime/DigimonSavers Masaru]] aka all the goggleheaded main characters. Of the digimon Protagonists, only [[Anime/DigimonTamers Takato]] has been left out.
** Tai and Davis, however, ''were'' more realistic than most examples of this trope, and [[CharacterDevelopment matured as the series progressed]]. They also seemed closer to their actual ages than most of the other kids: both are eleven in the beginning of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' and ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02''. The only reason they ever seem like {{Idiot Hero}}es is because the rest of the characters are [[WiseBeyondTheirYears startlingly mature for their ages]].

*** Much of Jaden's classification as a typical Idiot hero is a result of the butchering of his character in the Dub of the series, in the original/subbed version, he was more of the slacker, and his idiot hero tendencies more nuanced.

** Yuma from ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' is season 1 Jaden all over again, only if Jaden's dub characterization was the canon take. And despite being the protagonist, he has less dueling skills than an amateur, and Astral has to guide him through a lot of his duels.

* Downplayed and a bit Justified in in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' whose eponymous main character is primarily BookDumb. Despite the fact that he is recognized at the bottom of his class, Naruto was capable of sneaking into the home of his village's leader, a wise and skilled ninja, and stealing a forbidden scroll, and learning a forbidden technique written on said scroll. He is capable, or "learns through his body" as Kakashi puts it. On the other hand, he is practically incapable of learning the basic techniques early on that all of his classmates learn. At one point, [[SealedEvilInACan it is inferred that the Tailed Beast inside of him]] is disrupting his anatomy, resulting in at least a few of his academic failings. Regardless, as to his personality, Naruto is still an overly spirited and loud-mouthed individual throughout the first half of the series.

* America from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' is the poster boy—er, nation—for this trope. He's a BigEater who is loud (occasionally considered annoying by the other characters and/or fans) and comes up with plans like "building a giant superhero to stop global warming." He is repeatedly told to "read the atmosphere," upon which he looks for it in a bookstore. A quote from the dub:
