* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' has an unusual variation in "The Empty Hearse". In the two years since Sherlock's (faked) suicide, Anderson and his group of followers have bee speculating on how Sherlock might've survived...just like the ''Sherlock'' fandom has been in RealLife. Cue Anderson's status as a [[TheScrappy scrappy]] [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap being revoked]] and instead being given [[EnsembleDarkhorse darkhorse status]].

* Donna in ''TheWestWing'' acts as this, often asking the commonsense questions the other characters don't think of. (Also see WomenAreWiser.)

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''
** Lisa, Yeardley Smith's character, often fills this role on the series (whenever Comic Book Guy isn't around):
-->'''Marge:''' Don't you remember when Maggie shot Mr. Burns?\\
'''Homer:''' I thought Smithers did it.\\
'''Lisa:''' (''under her breath'') That would have made a lot more sense.
** Frank Grimes in the infamous eighth-season episode "Homer's Enemy". The character's sole purpose was to represent a realistic person from [[RealLife our universe]] -- accustomed to toil, pressures and hardship with little, if anything, to show for it -- transplanted into a [[CrapsackWorld universe]] that [[IdiotHoudini caters to and rewards the lazy and stupid]], and how it would understandably drive him/her ''absolutely insane''. Granted, his childhood was pretty exaggerated and far from being realistic so perhaps more of a cariacture of a real person.

** ComicBook/{{Robin}} was introduced to the comic in order to appeal to the young audience who bought it. Even among the various Robins, Tim Drake (Robin III) is often cited as the easiest to relate to and identify with as he ''wasn't'' an orphan, acrobat, or street rat [[spoiler: although he became the first one in ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'']]. Just a regular kid who knew Batman needed a Robin.
