* ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'' frequently dropped whatever he was doing to go on [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment some mundane activity with Cosgrove]].
-->'''Freakazoid:''' Nothing will stand in my way!
-->'''Cosgrove:''' Hey, Freakazoid, wanna go out for a mint?
-->'''Freakazoid:''' Okay.

* In ''Literature/TheOthers'' by ''Creator/AnneBishop'' the [[CleverCrows Crowgard]] fit this behaviour to a ''T''. Really reinforced by the revelation that the Crowgard of the Lakeside Courtyard run a shop called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Sparkle and Junk]].

* The PlayerCharacter in a ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' game can easily turn out like this. Since these games feature open worlds with lots of optional caves, abandoned forts and ancient ruins full of riches, its easy to lose track of the current quest and loot these places instead. Even when said quest involves saving the world.

* ''VideoGame/PonyIsland'': Satan in a nutshell - I've got to finish this current game I'm working on! It's got to have many levels, suspense, build-up, an epic final boss, and, and ooh... [[MissingStepsPlan here's a cute mascot for a brand NEW game!]]

** Bowser Junior himself is also prone to this. In "Bowser Junior's Candy Bar!", he says that he would not want anything at the gas station (Chef Pee Pee went there with him to buy something), but a GilliganCut occurs and he gets distracted by the candy being sold there. He winds up stealing a Hershey's candy bar.

* WebVideo/PeanutButterGamer shows shades of this during the Hardcore series or other Let's Plays. In his Super Mario 64 LP on the DS, he mentions in his first video wanting to explain why he's playing on the DS and not the Virtual Console 64 version. He forgets it during that video and has to focus multiple times to recall he hasn't explained yet in the second video.

* Yui in ''Manga/KOn'' has already been accused of this. Interestingly, she also shows signs of Hyperfocus. Specifically, she spends all her focus on learning the guitar ignoring her studies and failing a test. Causing her to exclusively focus on her studies, acing the re-take test, but forgetting most of what she learned on the guitar. Which is [[TruthInTelevision really possible]], people with ADHD can focus absurdly well when they feel like it, foregoing all other brain processes in the mean time.

* In the ''Literature/{{Clementine}}'' books, especially in the earlier titles, Clementine has to be reminded often to pay attention in school, and has trouble sitting still. As she explains...
-->"Clementine, you need to pay attention!" the art teacher said one more time. And just like the other times, I ''was'' paying attention. I was paying attention to Margaret's empty seat.

* In the ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' episode "Bowser's Cookies", Chef Pee Pee tells Toad to watch the cookies in the oven, and not to get distracted. And then:
-->'''Toad:''' Don't get distracted. Don't get distracted. Don't get distracted. Don't get-- ''(GASP)'' KITTY!\\
''(switch to another scene)''\\
'''Toad:''' Kitty! I know where you're in! ''(chuckles)'' I'm-a get you! Come here! Come here, where are you?
