* 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 [[TheElderScrollsIVOblivion gate to the underworld]] or a [[TheElderScrollsVSkyrim dragon]].

** It happens 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.

* Andy on ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' has a tendency to lose focus mid-conversation. Or sometimes mid-sentence:
-->'''Andy:''' (singing) "Ron and Dianne sitting in a tree / K-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I." (points) "Did you see that bird?"

Added DiffLines:

* [[CatGirl Suzu]] from ''Manga/{{Rinne}}'' is a prime example of this. Special mention goes to when she took part in a obstacle course race filled with many cat toys alongside other black cats. All of them fell for the trap and started playing with the toys instead of advancing, except for Oboro, whose owner, Ageha, is filthy rich so he doesn't care for cheap toys (but he does gets disqualified for exiting the course). Suzu, however, arrived first by a wide margin. Why? [[UpToEleven Her attention spam is so short that she quickly becomes bored of the current toy and moves to the next one, eventually reaching the finish line]].

* In the "Valentime's Day" episode of ''Series/NickyRickyDickyAndDawn'', the quads are looking for reasons their parents don't celebrate Valentine'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...
* As seen in A Hero is Born" episode of ''Series/TheThundermans'', King Crab is very easily distracted, even in a battle, by bubbles.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'': Timmy. When Cosmo and Wanda couldn't grant him a cheese and ham omelet because it was 10:31 [=AM=] and it was against Da Rules to grant breakfast wishes after 10:30 [=AM=], Timmy said nothing would take his mind off it until... then he noticed a garage sale.

Though to be fair, he did still remember his desire for an omelet, and checking out that garage sale did ''coincidentally'' lead to him getting one.

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic during ''FernGully 2'': "Is this what you humans call ADD? I feel like I can't focus on anythin--oooh, a housefly." ''(moves off after it)'' He also displays this in other reviews, especially when he wanders off during a boring film.

* Fairies in the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' franchise have this in general, due to being ephemeral and short-lived (but immortal) youkai. In the spin-off game ''Fairy Wars'' (which stars fan-favorite Cirno), you have a "motivation meter" in place of a life bar; when it hits 0, [[NonStandardGameOver Cirno gets bored of the whole adventure and wanders off to find something more interesting to do]].
