* The ''{{Jabberjaw}}'' Bubbles. The Bubbles on ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' has some random moments of ditziness but she balances it out with some common sense that her sisters are unaware of and don't possess.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. Ensign Sonya Gomez makes her debut when she spills hot chocolate over Captain Picard. She was meant to be a recurring PluckyComicRelief character, but only appeared in two episodes. She may have been inspired by a clumsy yeoman called Myra Kart in "Cassandra", an episode written for ''Star Trek: Phase II'', who accidentally exposes some alien spies in disguise when she hits the fire sprinkler system instead of the light switch.

* ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'''s Lucy Ashmore has her moments, such as spilling school supplies all over the place when opening her pencil case, or accidentally pouring water on someone's leg. However, this is more out of [[ShrinkingViolet nervousness]], due to [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer being picked on]].



* The ever GenreSavvy Mac of ''Literature/TalesOfMU'' at one point even acknowledges that she hasn't had her "daily pratfall" and worries when it will happen. This is, presumably, one way to cause her to appear less threatening, considering her status as a half-demon with super-strength and the ability to conjure fire essentially at will.

* A recurring motive of the French-Italian Website/{{YouTube}}r Creator/TessMasazza's videos is that she is seemingly completely unable to perform the easiest daily chores, such as buying household products, cooking a meal or cleaning the house. [[FencePainting She might sometimes exaggerate her clumsiness to lead other people into helping her, though]].

* "WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie" introduces us to Roxanne, the love interest of Max, who is just as clunky as her suitor: she drops her books, butts into objects and gets her fingers stuck in her hair as she twirls it.

* Actually ''weaponized'' by [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Akane Tendo]] in ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/7225366/chapters/16400410 Dojikko-Ken!]]'' After she finds a training manual for the titular style, she learns how to use feigned clumsiness to defeat her opponents and gets very good at it.

** Eisuke Hondou is a RareMaleExample, tripping and falling in ''his very first apparition''. A [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] is hung on this when one of the characters comments that he would be very cute if he were a girl. [[spoiler: OTOH, while he ''is'' clumsy... some of his clumsiest moments are more like ObfuscatingStupidity.]]

** Subverted by [[spoiler: Rumi Wakasa]], who at first seems to play it straight... but Conan and Ai suspect that [[spoiler: she's clumsy because ''she cannot see from one of her eyes''. Which makes her a suspect of being Rum, a VERY dangerous member of TheSyndicate who also is blind in one eye.]]

* Haruka Amami from ''Anime/TheIdolmaster'' has this as her main distinguishing character trait. Usually PlayedForLaughs, it takes on a whole [[PlayedForDrama different tone]] when [[spoiler: she nearly falls down an open trap door, and the Producer saves her at the cost of falling himself and ending up in the hospital]]. Invoked in ''Manga/PetitIdolmaster'' when she tries to prove that she's the real Haruka and not the robot everyone is talking to by managing to trip on a completely empty floor.

* Toujo Aya and Mukai Kozue of ''Manga/StrawberryOneHundredPercent'' definitely fall into this, although Aya starts out as HollywoodHomely. Lampshaded by Junpei for Aya ("Her ratio for falling down is definately three times more than a normal person").

* Carol from ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 5}}''. Her regular attack consists of her shooting a rocket launcher bigger than she is, then falling on her butt. She also tends to trip and fall when confronted with [[DoesNotLikeMen boys]] and is in general adorable.

* Merrill in VideoGame/DragonAgeII. While her awkwardness is certainly adorable, it contrasts sharply with her status as BlackMagicianGirl.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': This'd be [[PluckyComicRelief Yuffie]], though it's more prevalent in the [[SpinOff spin-offs]] such as ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' and ''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus'', where she has a habit of [[InTheNameOfTheMoon standing atop tall structures and proclaiming her name]] -- only to [[RunningGag lose her balance and fall flat on her backside, or hit her head.]]

* Shurelia from ''VideoGame/ArTonelicoMelodyOfElemia'' starts off as a somewhat cold [[LadyofWar Lady of War]], but after you actually get her into your party and put her into a costume other than the Linker suit, it becomes apparent that she's incredibly clumsy. She will actually fall over after casting spells, and gets lost repeatedly in the course of the game. In spite of all of this, she's probably the smartest character in the game.

** Sumia. [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness Miriel]] actually [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the use of this trope ("Displays of helplessness serve to attract mates of a protective predisposition") during a conversation in the [[BeachEpisode Summer Scramble]] {{DLC}} Chapter. However, her clumsiness and ditzy nature are actually implied to be the source of [[HeroicSelfDeprecation quite the low self-esteem.]]
** Her daughter [[spoiler: from the future]] Cynthia seems to have inherited this trait as well, but plays it noticeably straighter.
