* Goku from ''Manga/DragonBall'', induced from him suffering [[EasyAmnesia massive head trauma]] as a baby (which is the biggest reason why he didn't end up a ''villain''), growing up isolated from the outside world until he was at least twelve years old, and his only education to speak of was less than a year of learning basic reading and math from [[DirtyOldMan a perverted hermit]]. ** Goku was really book dumb and na´ve (probably) only from living in the wilderness for 12 years. He was perfectly capable of understanding what was going on and coming up with plans. He's even shown fighting tactically several times. Although he's definitely an idiot when it comes to trusting his enemies and trying to give them second chances, but this is as much due to his kind, na´ve nature as it is to stupidity. *** The latter issue is almost FridgeBrilliance when you consider how many of his enemies have become friends. * Yusuke from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', being what appears to be an {{Expy}} of Goku with a {{Jerkass}} {{Delinquent|s}} layer over him, also falls under this trope. He is severely, SEVERELY BookDumb; he got a bloody ''12'' on a science test. Kuwabara is worse; he got a '''''7'''''. However, Yusuke has ''far'' more common sense than the average shonen hero. ** Justified in Yusuke's case because he hardly ever shows up for school. You can't expect him to know material he wasn't in school to learn. Kuwabara is probably a straighter example of this, as even when he did study, he got a 53. *** And it's implied that at least part of the reason for his never doing so stems from the fact his mother, Atsuko, is frankly a terribly negligent parent. She spends more time out drinking, sleeping off hangovers, or cursing him out in a drunken tirade than doing anything responsible, to the extent that Yusuke himself has very little respect for her. To be fair to her, she was a party girl who got pregnant with Yusuke at the age of '''14''' and was evidently abandoned by both the father and her family.

At the outside world until same time, he was at least twelve years old, isn't a completely straight example of this trope since Goku is more naive and his only education to speak of was less too trusting than a year of learning basic reading and math from [[DirtyOldMan a perverted hermit]]. ** Goku was really book outright dumb and na´ve (probably) only does show a surprising amount of wisdom outside of fighting. It is hinted in ''Dragon Ball Minus'' that Goku's good heart came from living in the wilderness for 12 years. He was perfectly capable of understanding what was going on his mother and coming up with plans. He's even shown fighting tactically several times. Although he's definitely an idiot when it comes to trusting not just from his enemies and trying to give them second chances, but this is as much due to his kind, na´ve nature as it is to stupidity. *** The latter issue is almost FridgeBrilliance when you consider how many head injury like most of his enemies have become friends. friends believe. There is also no real hint of Goku having brain damage given that he was raised in extreme isolation for most of his childhood which is why he is naive about the rest of the world and never really integrated into human society. * ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' ** Yusuke from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', being what appears to be an {{Expy}} of Goku with a {{Jerkass}} {{Delinquent|s}} layer over him, also falls under this trope.

*** To summarize: Ash was a total idiot when he started his journey, and then gradually matured over the course of the Original Series and Advanced generation series. During the Diamond and Pearl series he gets even better at PokÚmon battling, but, as mentioned above, he gets less intelligent in all other regards. During the Best Wishes series, however, he hits the ResetButton very hard and actually becomes MORE of an idiot than when he started out. During the XY series, however, he regains his former maturity and intelligence with interest, and almost averts this trope completely.

* Nobi Nobita from "Anime/{{Doraemon}}" could be considered the UrExample of this trope for modern anime. His father was athletic but book dumb, while his mother was frail but intelligent. Unfortunately he happened to inherit the worst traits from either parent, so he constantly gets left behind in both school work and physical activities. However, he has proven time and again that when he really wants to he can overcome his problems and really get things done.

* Ryuu Yamada from ''Manga/YamadaKunAndTheSevenWitches'' is actually a slightly ''Literature/HarryPotter''-like example in that his overall intelligence clearly isn't that low, but he is rather BookDumb and unmotivated and tends to rush into fickle situations without thinking about the consequences or considering making a game plan.

** Yuya from ''Anime/YuGiOhARCV'' is another subversion. While he initially seems like one, he comes across as having an average intelligence than actually dumb and is GenreSavvy. He mentions being bad at Math and Science but apparently does decently in other subjects. His main dumb moments were having trouble with Pendulum Summoning at first, though using card game is treated as being a lot more difficult in the show anyway.
