* Steven Quartz Universe of ''StevenUniverse'' is very much an example for the first half of the series. A small, naive child who is easily manipulated by the adults around him, he doesn't even realize his entire race is [[spoiler: from another planet]] until the end of the first season. His childish antics frequently get him and the rest of the cast in trouble. However, as the series goes on and Steven learns more about combat and the minds of other people, he eventually(very gradually) grows out of this trait, and at this point in the series (season 4) stands as a BadassPacifist / emotional {{Chessmaster}} with only occasional moments of weakness.

* [[Comicbook/AchilleTalon Walter Melon]]. (Not ''that'' [[AquaTeenHungerForce Walter Melon]].)The ad for the show says "[[FearlessFool He knows no fear]]. [[InHarmsWay He knows no danger]]. [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass He knows... nothing!]]" And... he really doesn't. He's the ultimate mercenary: whenever a character needs to be replaced, he can replace them. And he gets the powers. (Whether he can USE them remains to be seen, he displays varying levels of ability every episode.) This being a comedy, he almost always relies on Dumb Luck.

** This happened so much that Jorgen, in the later seasons, has become [[GenreSavvy savvy]] enough to know that [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt a typical world disaster]] is [[HereWeGoAgain just another day in the life of Timmy Turner]].

* Lion-O from the eighties ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'' series. A pretty justified case since he aged to physical maturity in a sleep capsule during the long journey to Third Earth. Lion-O is a kid stuck in an adult's body and is fairly naive at first. He eventually becomes a good leader over the course of the series.

As a result, he has an inflated sense of responsibility as "Lord of the Thundercats", often [[LeeroyJenkins charging recklessly into bad situations]] that the others have to bail him out of. He eventually becomes a good leader over the course of the series.

* ''WesternAnimation/HongKongPhooey'', though calling him a ''hero'' is a stretch, since it's always his HyperCompetentSidekick who actually saves the day. Usually HKP's idiocy proves to be a hindrance.
