** 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.

* Pamela Ibis of ''AtelierIris'' and ''VideoGame/ManaKhemiaAlchemistsOfAlRevis'' was apparently one of these until she died and became a CuteGhostGirl. According to ''Atelier Iris 3'', she died because she fell off a stool while trying to get some cooking implements out of a cupboard and landed on her head.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/OmujoOmutsuJoshi,'' several AccidentalPervert moments between Shouta and Ichigo result from some act of clumsiness on Ichigo's part. Twice he's seen under her skirt after she tripped on stairs, and in one instance Shouta caught her in a bridal carry. On a movie date, Ichigo trips and drapes herself across Shouta's lap KinkySpanking style because her purse strap caught on her seat as she was getting up. In chapter thirteen, she knocks herself out with a volleyball and wakes up on Shouta's back after he's drafted into carrying her to the nurse's office. Her nervousness at this proximity aggravates her weak bladder, causing some unfortunately timed PottyFailure.

Added DiffLines:

* The protagonist of ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' can pretend to be this in order to splash people with buckets of liquid and get away with it. If she does it too much, however, she'll get a reputation as clumsy and people will be careful not to get splashed when they see her carrying a bucket.

* The remake of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'', ''Echoes: Shadows Of Valentia'', rewrites Zeke's WhiteMage girlfriend Tatiana into this. She's very nurturing and caring, plus an excellent healer... but she's also very scatterbrained, a terrible cook, [[SayingTooMuch and sometimes puts her feet in her mouth.]]

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' features Riju, the Gerudo chieftain. Having [[AChildShallLeadThem inherited the position at a young age]] due to the unexpected death of her mother, it's obvious that the objects she interacts with, such as her throne or the [[MaskOfPower Thunder Helm]], are much too big for her, with the latter tending to slip on her face when she wears it. There are also various young female [=NPC=]s across Hyrule who have a trip and fall animation when running from monsters.
