* Depending on your playstyle, there is a high chance your player character in any ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' game falls victim to this trope, due to the high amount of content in said games' open worlds. It's very easy to take on a quest, only to forget said quest because of all the optional dungeons you encounter on your way, followed by taking on other quests only for them to also be postponed because you encountered, depending on the game, a [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion gate to the underworld]] or a [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim dragon]].

** This is a trait of the [[DivineParentage Demiprinces]], a form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] born of the union between a [[HalfHumanHybrid Daedra and a mortal]]. Demiprinces tend to have short attention spans and get bored very easily. Fa-Nuit-Hen, for example, can barely stay focused on questions during his interviews and outright interrupts people so he can answer them before he loses track of what they're saying.

* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': Parado is all too playful for his (supposed) age, gets bored extremely easily and tends to switch between what he is toying with at moment's notice. The only thing he focuses on is fighting other riders, namely [[ArchEnemy Emu]].

* Newer to the LetsPlay scene team ''LetsPlay/DrakAndShadowLetsPlays'' also have a serious problem with waning conversations. Their LetsPlay of ''ShadowsOfTheEmpire'' particularly [[http://youtu.be/jDkvwSqebnU This episode]] where they go off on just about anything BUT the game they're playing. Both are [[LampshadeHanging well aware of this fact]].

See also HollywoodPsych, TheSchizophreniaConspiracy, and LIsForDyslexia. Similar types include the AbsentMindedProfessor and the {{Cloudcuckoolander}} (who may or may not have a disorder). This exaggeration is frequently seen in {{Genki Girl}}s and {{Keet}}s. Can often overlap with EasilyImpressed where people are amazed easily rather than distracted.

distracted. These symptoms are well within the very wide range of symptoms that you might see in any character with an AmbiguousDisorder.

** 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.
