*[[ThoseTwoGuys Detectives Hitchcock and Scully]] from ''Series/BrooklynNineNine''. Both are lazy, incompetent, and generally worthless at police work, in addition to being just plain [[TheDitz dim-witted]] and having an [[SmallNameBigEgo over-inflated opinion of themselves.]] But they are kept around because they [[UltimateJobSecurity make good coffee.]]

* ''Who's Harry Crumb?'' Largely this trope. Though he does have some moments of deductive prowess.

* WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck as Dorlock Homes in "WesternAnimation/DeduceYouSay". Of course, since this is Daffy, he thinks's he's a GreatDetective.

* The ''Franchise/BerniceSummerfield'' novel ''Ship of Fools'' by Dave Stone has Benny trapped on an entire star-liner full of clueless detectives, all pastiching a different famous character, and all clueless in a different way. Emile Dupont of Nova Belgique (Literature/HerculePoirot) is a raving ConspiracyTheorist; Sandford Groke (Franchise/SherlockHolmes) is ''actually'' a psychopath; Kharrli the Czan (Franchise/CharlieChan) is probably the sanest, but his FunnyForeigner routine involves gratuitously insulting everyone; and Agatha Magpole (Literature/MissMarple)'s success rate is down to her being a sub concious psychic who unwittingly prods people into committing the murders she solves.

* MistyKnight in ''Series/LukeCage2016'' is a downplayed variant: she's a very good investigator (at one point, it's commented that with her resume, she could've taken a post at 1PP or even become a Fed), but not so good at other parts of being a cop, often letting her emotions get the better of her and losing convictions because of it.
