** The Chaos Gods, DependingOnTheWriter both InUniverse and out, also may be like this. Some depictions have them as very clever, sapient and in full control of "the game of chaos" they are reputed to play (in other words, toying with mortals for their own amusement), while other depictions have them as single-minded entities doing only what they are made out of - anger for Khorne, desire for Slaanesh, change for Tzeentch and stagnation for Nurgle.

* In ''Literature/ShadowsOfTheApt'', this is the true nature of [[spoiler: the Worm]]; an immensely ancient and powerful ''thing'' that has no sentience to speak of and desires nothing but to [[VillainousGlutton feed]] and [[AssimilationPlot assimilate]]. The creature's sheer stupidity is so powerful it can actually [[StupidityInducingAttack affect other people]]; magicians exposed to it, or even its minions, will completely forget how to cast spells, and [[{{Muggles}} Apt]] will lose the knowledge of how their technology works. [[spoiler: The Worm]] doesn't understand magic or science, and its influence makes sure nobody else does either.[[spoiler: Ultimately, the Worm's stupidity is its undoing, as the fact that it will mindlessly consume anything set in front of it allows one character to FeedItABomb. And after all, explosives blow up whether their target understands them or not]].

* Depending on your definition of the word "idiot," most any class can become this in 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.

* The BigBad of the 7th ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem]]'' game, Nergal, gave into darkness to save his wife from some kidnappers. By the time he gets back, he's forgotten about her and is trying to corrupt his children into opening Dragon's Gate and starting the EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. BadassBookworm Canas also studies Dark Magic, and mentions that he must be careful, lest it consume him like his [[EmptyShell 3 brothers]]. [[GuideDangIt If you find and complete the bonus chapters]], Nergal mentions as he dies that he's forgotten something dear to him.

* The C'tan from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' used to be like this, being incomprehensibly ancient entities whose entire existence revolved around eating radiation emitted from stars. They weren't even aware of the existence of other life. Then the Necrontyr discovered them and gave them new bodies of living metal. The C'tan gained greater intelligence and awareness of the universe around them. Unfortunately, since they were still at heart creatures driven by the desire to consume, this only meant they now realized they could try eating things other than radiation -- like lifeforce and souls.

* ''TabletopGame/Pathfinder'': While liches do become StrongerWithAge, apathy tends to take over their minds as the years come by. They do less, and lose themselves in the process until their minds "decay", so to speak, due to sheer unrelenting apathy. Demiliches are the oldest of these, whose whole bodies aside from the skull have decayed from this process. They're possibly the most dangerous things an adventurer could ever face, but they're barely able to rouse enough thought to defend their possessions if touched, not even aware there's anything going on in their lairs otherwise.

Demiliches are the oldest of these, whose whole bodies aside from the skull have decayed from this process. They're possibly the most dangerous things an adventurer could ever face, able to rip your soul out with very little effort and carrying ludicrous magical might, but they're barely able to rouse enough thought to defend their possessions if touched, not even aware there's anything going on in their lairs otherwise.
