* Exaggerated in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' with [[IdiotHero Goku]], making him essentially TooDumbToLive. But, while his idiocy is ramped up, there's also this moment when discussing the [[FanNickname Ultra Super Saiyan form]] with [[WiseBeyondTheirYears Gohan]].

* Malik from ''Un prophète'' is almost illiterate (though he does get some education while in prison) - but he's [[ManipulativeBastard very, very]] clever.

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 2016}}'': Patty, the only non-scientist on the team, is nevertheless a huge history nerd. This proves invaluable when tracking ghosts and figuring out the BigBad's master plan. One of the most common criticisms of the movie is the fact that [[TrailersAlwaysLie the trailers]] portrayed her as a stereotypical "street smart black character," when that's not really part of her personality at all.

** Bart Simpson is clearly an excellent example of this -- at school, he is falling behind everybody else, barely managing to stay in his own grade, whereas in his spare time he thwarts criminals and solves mysteries, often displaying intuitive thinking skills on a par with his sister Lisa. Further proven in the few situations where he ''does'' apply himself academically, and manages to do quite well for himself. He has also proven himself to be an excellent [[Omniglot polyglot]], speaking fluent French in two months, and Spanish and Japanese in a matter of hours.
