** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', even more so. Ganon is now a near-mindless monster incapable of speech who is only hate and malice incarnate. It's why he's known as "the Calamity Ganon" in this game: he's not a ''person'' or even a ''being'', he's just a force of nature.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', a line from Micolash suggests Rom the Vacuous Spider may be one of these. [[spoiler: In one ending, you may also become one when you ascend to become a [[EldritchAbomination Great One]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'', TrueFinalBoss [[HijackedByGanon Ganon]] becomes this due to a resurrection ritual that Link interrupts. Twinrova wanted to sacrifice Zelda, but when Link defeats her she sacrifices herself instead, bringing back all of the guy's power but none of his mind.
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', even more so. Ganon is now a mindless monster incapable of speech who is only hate and malice incarnate. The only remnants of Ganondorf are his red hair and a burnt jewel on the crown of his skull like head.

* Towards the end of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Tobi becomes the host of the [[EldritchAbomination Ten-Tailed Beast]], reducing him to this state. It gets to the point where he cannot remember his own name. Only by holding on to [[spoiler: the memory of his [[TheLostLenore dead comrade from his childhood]]]] does he regain his sanity. Notably, [[spoiler: the real Madara]] goes through the same procedure without falling into this trope [[VillainSue for whatever reason]].

* Depending on your definition of the word "idiot," most any class can become this in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. Because of a greater direct effect on gameplay from physical stats (Strength increases damage, Dexterity increases speed, Constitution increases health), usually most people will pick their least used mental stat as their dump stat. Whether they're a moron (Intelligence), a fool (Wisdom), or a tool (Charisma), someone will think of them as idiots. Even the most powerful wizard or fighter will succumb to this trope.

** A straight example would be Banghtu, the orcish god of strength. While his physical might is almost limitless, he's known for being woefully stupid, one source giving him an Intelligence Score of only 3. (Making him dumber than most mortal ''children'', orc or otherwise.) He values strength, and little else. The biggest benefit, however, is that his stupidity makes him [[UndyingLoyalty completely loyal]] to his father Gruumsh, the head of the orc pantheon.

* [[Literature/LordOfTheRings Sauron, the Dark Lord of Middle Earth]], is portrayed as senile in ''Podcast/PlumbingTheDeathStar'', having become so broken and delusional without his Ring of Power that even Saruman can't talk him into an actual strategy. Instead, the darkest force in Middle-Earth is reduced to simply screaming about throwing armies straight at his enemies.
