* 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. 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.

Added DiffLines:

* Haldos from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' asserts that the true creator of the titular Nexus acts out of mindless instinct, and that the PowersThatBe that players can align themselves with are lesser gods who came along much later. The latter is probably true, but Haldos is an UnreliableNarrator with an agenda to drive and it's unknown if he really knows the truth about the former.

* 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 newborn [[EldritchAbomination Great One]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', a line from Micolash suggests Rom the Vacuous Spider may be one of these. A theory that shows some credence since the word "vacuous" essentially means "mindless". [[spoiler: In one ending, you may also become one when you ascend to become a newborn [[EldritchAbomination Great One]].]]

** In the climax, [[spoiler:Khepri fits this trope, having disabled the limitations on her power put in place to protect her mind. Over the course of the final parts of the story, her mind deteriorates even as she uses her boosted powers to save the world. By the end of the arc she's lost the ability to communicate with other people in any way, has lost nearly all her memories, and believes everyone is plotting against her - and very nearly becomes the setting's new BigBad]].
