%%* ''Film/InspectorGadget''* ''Film/InspectorGadget'', true to his cartoon roots.
* Lt. Frank Drebin from ''Film/TheNakedGun'' is fairly competent, but given he lives in a slapstick world, he's always prone to dumb sayings\decisions, pratfalls (though once it helped, as Frank tripped on the power chord of a bomb and stopped it), and humiliating things.



%%* Creator/AdamSandler in most of his movie roles.

* 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.]] 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.
