* [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] is perceived as such, but is actually quite smart. However, he's HotBlooded and like his mythological counterpart answer to most every problem is [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer "hit it with his hammer until it goes away"]] and he has a number of buttons that are fairly easy to press. This is largely the reason his nemesis SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} is able to trick him so often. However, particularly in recent years, Thor's shown a much more cunning side, which often comes as a surprise to those expecting him to be this trope.

* In the DisneyDucksComicUniverse, DonaldDuck at times counts (if only because of naivete, acting by impulse, not listening to his nephews or all combined) while his cousin Fethry acts stupidly most of the time.

* TheTick
* GrooTheWanderer is slow of mind.
** Lacking ideals other than acquiring mass amounts of cheese dip. Early in the title he inadvertently, and often obliviously, pulled CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass, but now his destructive reputation has grown to the point that armies will flee at the mention of his name, and the writers are running out of foreign lands to put him in to make use of the trope.

* TheTick
* GrooTheWanderer
It's a good thing Ben Edlund's ''ComicBook/TheTick'' is nigh-invulnerable, or he'd probably have gotten himself killed years ago with his boisterous recklessness.
* ''ComicBook/GrooTheWanderer'' is notoriously
slow of mind.

* ScottPilgrim. Oh, Scott...
Fighting, cooking, and music are ComicBook/ScottPilgrim's strong points, thinking things through and [[LameComeback snappy comebacks]] are not.

* FlamingCarrot from the eponymous ''Flaming Carrot Comics'', actually described in his origin story as "quintessentially retarded". Surprisingly, for some people he's actually a mentor and on occasion it even gives him the "superpower" of Zen Stupidity.

*** The original version of his origin also was that he just got the job because his uncle was one of the greatest Green Lanterns. That "enemies discrediting the Green Lanterns" stuff sounds more like a CerebusRetcon. Then again, a real CerebusRetcon would have [[AlienScrappy gotten rid of G'nort altogether]].
