** Link can manage to defeat Ganondorf by waving a fishing pole around to distract him while taking potshots at him. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTUiVAgOA0M See it in action here.]] This is actually pretty common in the ''Zelda'' series -- a good quarter of the final bosses will stop and stare at your fishing pole/bug net.

* ''Series/NickyRickyDickyAndDawn'': While looking for reasons their parents don't celebrate Valentine's Day in "Valentime's Day", Dicky finds a large roll of bubble wrap and the quads immediately stop their quest in order to pop all the bubbles. Two hours later...
** Happens again in "Sweet Foot Rides" when the quads go to the hotel room to get their father's prototype shoes back from the man they thought stole them. Instead, they go immediately to the bed and jump up and down on it, taking so long that the man comes back.

** In ''FanFic/AgeofDragons'' , Kathan Adaar is a Qunari Inquisitor prone to going off on random tangents and forgetting what particular quest he is on at any given moment. Somehow he manages to be the smartest guy in the series anyway, proving that sometimes TheCuckoolanderWasRight.

* ''Franchise/TheFlash'': Bart Allen, the aptly codenamed Impulse. Until he got kneecapped, read an entire library in under 2 hours, and took up the Kid Flash mantle. So, apparently the cure for ADHD is kneecapping. It came back when he came BackFromTheDead in ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'': [[ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}} Legion of 3 Worlds]].

* In ''KillLaKill'' Mrs. Mankanshoku keeps getting distracted by Mikisugi's shiny purple crotch glow, on several occasions. Her daughter Mako is much worse, getting mostly distracted by food.
* Excel of the ''ExcelSaga'' anime is this every second she's on screen, & can't even focus when she's talking, twisting her lightening fast sentances into twisting paths of unrelated subjects.
