* ''ComicBook/RedEars'': Double subverted in a comic where a very drunk guy in a bar offers to tell a dumb blonde joke to three blonde women who then threaten him by describing how the three of them are experts in various martial arts disciplines. He just shrugs it off with [[StealthInsult "Never mind. I'm not going to tell the same joke three times"]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/LesSisters'':
** Marine does incredibly stupid things which cause problems for herself and Wendy. While it can be attributed to her young age, one of the comics suggested that her teen/adult self would still be stupid. Wendy (who is a brunette) even lampshades this by calling Marine a "blonde" when she does something especially dumb.
** Maxence is not the sharpest tool in the shed either; he believes anything you tell him and jumps to crazy conclusions.

Very prone to subversion now, with the characters who assume the blonde is foolish paying for it dearly. This may be a form of ObfuscatingStupidity, with the blonde playing off the stereotype, or she may have both [[GeniusDitz strengths and weaknesses]], and the blonde hair causes characters to overestimate the weakness and underestimate the strengths. Some works of fiction play with this trope by splitting it into two subtypes: type 1 is BookDumb, while type 2 is book smart, but lacks common sense.

(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, she's a BrainlessBeauty. And if she's in a FourTemperamentEnsemble, she's probably Sanguine.) Bonus points go to DumbBlonde characters who aren't real blondes. Especially watch out for a DitzyGenius or a ModernMajorGeneral. Because not every blonde person you come across is an idiot, NoRealLifeExamplesPlease

* Three blondes are sitting in a caffee, discussing Michelangelo's place in Renaissance art. Suddenly one of them whispers:
- Guys are about to take the table next to us! Switching to celebrity gossip on my mark!

* A businessman returns from lunch and asks his secretary if there were any calls. She says: "Oh yes, someone named... I think it was Gomez? Or Tanakawa? He sounded French. Or Australian. And he said: "If your boss doesn't call me back within the hour, his entire company is going under and he can expect twenty years in prison!" ".

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in Literature/TomGates. Despite being a blonde, Amy Porter is one of the smartest students in Tom's class. Also, unlike most inversions of this trope, she isn't an AlphaBitch. In fact, she's quite the opposite.
