* Kirk in the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' reboot seems to be playing with this one. Unlike ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries TOS]]'' Kirk, the reboot Kirk needs his supporting cast to keep from getting his ass handed to him every five minutes [[spoiler:(Spock, Spock Prime, Sulu, Scotty, Bones, and ''Chekov'' keep Kirk from killing himself in various interesting ways while HypercompetentSidekick Uhura holds the ship together!)]]

** Ironically, he eventually becomes TheStrategist for the Master Builders. [[spoiler: And not only that, the double-decker couch saved their lives because it was so stupid, the BigBad missed it.]]

** Ironically, he eventually becomes TheStrategist for the Master Builders. [[spoiler: And not only that, the double-decker couch saved their lives because it was so stupid, the BigBad missed it.]] Additionally, the couch is the only object that survives the destruction of the submarine built by the Master Builders. Why? Because, while they're great a building things individually, working together doesn't come naturally to them, and their individual styles conflict with one another]].

* Patchi from ''Series/WalkingWithDinosaurs'': ''The Movie'' was this at first, a chronic complainer with poor survival skills. He finally shapes up when he leads the herd off the frozen lake, the same lake [[BigBrotherBully Scowler]] is leading everyong across.

* [[DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney's]] ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' fits the trope well. He goes about his life carelessly while making the most moronic decisions, spare for a few moments of flash in the pan brilliance when his or somebody else's life depends on it. It's particularly noticeable when you realize how most of the other characters, save for Jasmine, spend their time trying to steer him to a correct choice. Still, his idiocy seems not to extend too far beyond what's needed for the Aesop of the week.

* Haru (Chris Farley) - ''BeverlyHillsNinja''. The most classic example of this genre. * ''ForrestGump''. He actually appears to succeed ''[[TheFool because]]'' [[TheFool of his idiocy, or rather]], because it never seems to occur to him to do anything other than the Right Thing by traditional standards. He becomes a decorated war hero just by trying to save his Army buddy Bubba and his comrades. His shrimping business succeeds only because a hurricane has sunk every boat in the harbor but his; it is strongly implied this is because Gump has been going to church lately and got God on his side. Other characters who do not share his conventional morality, and explore alternative values and lifestyles as so many Americans did in the 1960s and '70s, [[ReactionaryFantasy act like total bastards and/or make fools of themselves.]] Even the good-hearted Jenny succumbs to DeathBySex, since she gets AIDS.
