* ''Series/OnePiece'': Downplayed with Sanji--he's not stupid, but he is one of the ditziest Straw Hats, a bit of a sucker, and the one most likely to make bad decisions based on immediate emotions.

* In JohnCWright's ''[[Literature/ChroniclesOfChaos Fugitives of Chaos]]'', a character describes a location as easy enough for Amelia -- "blond brain" -- to find. (He intends it as an insult; other characters have particularly marked her out as the clever one.)

(When the blonde is ''innocent'' rather than stupid, that's [[HairOfGoldHeartofGold Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold]]. When the blonde is ''sexy'' rather than stupid, that's EveryoneLovesBlondes. If she is sexy ''and'' stupid, it's BrainlessBeauty. And if she's in a FourTemperamentEnsemble, she's probably Sanguine.)

* Leni Loud on ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse''. Although not the only blonde in the family, she's certainly the least intelligent. She literally cannot chew gum and walk at the same time!

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': {{Discussed}}, mentally, by Mrs. Carson in reference to a newsreader in Kayda 9.
--> a bleach-blonde newsreader who probably had never heard of South Dakota before it was on the teleprompter. Mrs. Carson caught herself with that thought; it wasn't fair to the woman that she looked like an airhead blonde.

The {{stereotyp|e}}ical assumption that [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin blondes are dumb]]. Perhaps no more than a {{Foil}} to the BrainyBrunette, but can also appear as TheFool, TheDitz, or even the BrainlessBeauty. Extreme cases can make her the {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. Her character is otherwise flexible; the DumbBlonde ranges from a LoveFreak, to a [[HairOfGoldHeartofGold sweet, wholesome blonde]] whose [[BookDumb lack of interest in education]] only shows she is [[DumbIsGood more concerned about people]], to a [[AlphaBitch vacuous, mean-spirited and often lazy bimbo]], to TheVamp.

* [[PosthumousCharacter Keifer Porter]] of ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'': One of his wives says she's known dogs who were smarter. He was also [[HotGuysAreBastards very beautiful and cruel]]. His sisters, also blond, are much smarter. Cullen Moorland is an aversion. While a bit on the {{keet}} side, which is understandable in a 15-year-old boy, he's of at least average intelligence and can be rather crafty at evading rules and escorts when he wishes.

* TheForties and TheFifties saw an explosion of popularity in this trope with numerous [[BrainlessBeauty pretty but dim]] blonde heroines including ''ComicBook/{{Suzie}}'' and Melody (''ComicBook/JosieAndThePussyCats'') from ArchieComics, ''My Girl Pearl'' from MarvelComics and Owen Fitzgerald's airheaded creation [[MeaningfulName Moronica]] who appeared in comics like ''Starlet O'Hara'' and ''ComicBook/DizzyDames''.
** This originally included Betty Coopers from the main ArchieComics, but with the rise of modern feminism, the writers took advantage of that to make her more distinctive from Veronica as a self-confident [[OnlySaneMan voice of common sense]] WrenchWench among a myriad of other talents.
