* Katarina tends to zone out during conversations in ''LightNovel/DestructionFlagOtome'' which tends to result in her gaining siblings, fiancees and destroying absolutely any dignity she had been showing off until that point. And then she forgets and does it again the next day.

* Yu Touma from ''Manga/{{QED}}'', which, in a rare case, [[DeconstructedTrope is not played for laughs]].
** To clarify, as a little girl she was unknowingly responsible for their beloved family dog getting out of the house and getting run over because she was supposed to shut the door but got distracted. Many years later, while visiting her older brother Sou, she finally realises [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone what had happened]] and [[TearJerker breaks down in tears]].

* Cocoa of ''Manga/IsTheOrderARabbit'' is very easily distracted.
** In episode 9, she goes to the park to help look for Aoyama's lost fountain pen. She looks under a bench without any luck. Later when she spots a rabbit, she chases after it, completely forgetting about looking for the pen.
** In episode 10, she starts spouting off prime numbers. She [[GoodWithNumbers gets into the thousands]], then turns her head, notices a picture album, and gets distracted by that. Sharo [[LampshadedTrope wonders how she gets so easily distracted]].

** Even in the early episodes before the characters became very exaggerated Bart showed signs of having concentration issues. In "[[Recap/S2E1BartGetsAnF Bart Gets an F]]", a season 2 episode, he promises to do better on the next history test, as the teachers were saying he might have to repeat his grade, and when he really sits down at his desk (which he put in the basement so he would not get distracted by the fun snow day everyone else was having), he finds he cannot remember anything and cannot concentrate. Even after studying hard he still fails the test, and only scrapes a D by remembering a bit of information that was historical and a fact but was not really relevant.

* "Sick" Nick Mondo admitted he used to have this problem linking his inability to pay attention to his discovery of the fact there are professional wrestling schools.
* Maria Kanellis once lost a match because she was too busy posing for pictures being taken by the troops in Iraq to notice her tag team partner Candice Michelle needed a break against Wrestling/TrishStratus and was trying to tag out.

* Wrestling/GeorgeSteele: Wrestling/{{Bobby| Heenan}} "the Brain" Heenan once exploited Steele's crush for Miss Elizabeth by bringing out a poster of the beautiful valet of RandySavage to "the Animal's" match against "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff and showing it to him at critical points in the match. Orndorff was able to get an easy win over the lovestruck Steele.

** In "Brother's Little Helper", Bart, after pulling a few too many pranks in one day, was diagnosed with ADD and put on "Focusyn". The episode was more focused on the side-effects of the drug, which wound up making him insane and paranoid. Although... he [[ProperlyParanoid turned out to be right]] about major league baseball spying on people with satellites. In fact, his reaction to the medication is TruthInTelevision. ADHD medications like Ritalin and Adderall have increased anxiety as one of the nastier side effects. Psychiatrists sometimes prescribe anti-depressants or anti-anxiety meds with the stimulants to balance that out and symptoms of depression are official contraindications against usage of the drugs.

* [[ThisLoserIsYou You]]. Creator/JodieWhittaker has said in an interview with ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' that during her first meeting with ''Series/DoctorWho'''s costume designer, she couldn't focus on designing her costume because she kept getting distracted by the colour of the wallpaper behind them. This colour ended up being incorporated in the Thirteenth Doctor's costume as the colour of the trousers.
