* The closest kind of RealLife ADHD to this trope is ADHD inattentive type, a major subtype of ADHD but only one of three (the other two being ADHD hyperactive-impulsive type and ADHD combined type). It's also relatively rare that a person would encounter someone with obvious ADHD symptoms in public, as most adults with ADHD have by that point developed coping mechanisms to function in daily life. That being said, the effects of ADHD on people professionally and academically are often inhibiting: for instance, in the United States the rate of college graduation among the general populace is about 28-30%, while for those with ADHD, the number is more like 5%.

* Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' has a bad case of this. He'll be explaining his latest evil scheme, then digress midway-through to ramble about how a particular word sounds weird to him, or pause mid-defeat to exclaim over a band.
-->'''Doofenshmirtz:''' (strapped to a giant rocket) "AAAAAAHHHHHH...Hey, is that 'Love Handel'?"

* ''{{Webcomic/Freefall}}:'' Dvorak, the robot inventor. Or should that be MadScientist?
--> '''Dvorak:''' I'll keep an eye on things here.
--> '''Qwerty:''' Unless you get distracted by a new idea, or something shiny.
--> '''Dvorak:''' New ideas ARE shiny. That's why they're so hard to resist!

* 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]].
