* Officer Jong-goo, the protagonist of ''Film/TheWailing'', starts the movie as a fat, bumbling idiot who constantly shows up late at crime scenes, forgets to take his rain coat when it's clearly pouring outside, can't take any initiative on his own and needs to be told everything, and is so terrified by a lone, frail (though very AxCrazy) woman that he's completely unable to do anything to defend himself, let alone to restrain her and ends up lying on the ground, embarassing himself and all the police force at once. One of the point of the movie is to show [[TakeALevelInBadass how far he's willing to change]] when his family is in danger.

He is still better than his own deputy, who is about as cowardly and needs to be told [[BetterManhandleTheMurderWeapon not to manhandle a murder weapon]].

* In order to make sure the audience knows that Deputy Fife is one these type of officers, the very first show has a kid scrawl this limerick on a wall to taunt Barney.
"There once was a Deputy named Fife,
who carried a gun and a knife.
The gun was all dusty, the knife was all rusty,
'Cause he never caught a crook in his life."

* Jake in the western spoof ''Film/SupportYourLocalSheriff'', although he manages his GenreSavvy moments as well. (It's more a lack of enthusiasm than his being genuinely clueless.)
