* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'': Among the 11 siblings, we have Lisa. Betweeen graduating from college at age 4, being able to do taxes for her parents, giving university lectures, and owning a Nobel Prize, Lisa's academic finesse cannot be questioned. But for all her accomplishment in book smarts, she's a bit lacking in mundane sense. She fails to see why experimenting on a 1 year old baby would be a bad idea and her experiments often fail spectacularly over trivial mistakes. She's basically [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory a female Dexter in this regard]].

* Justin Russo from ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace plays this trope pretty straight. He excels at academics but tends to have no common sense to the point that he seems to have the IdiotBall glued to his hands.

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'': Ensign Harry Kim is a brilliant scientist and engineer, but also hopelessly inept when it comes to relationships to the point that he can't even get laid in his own holodeck simulations, and no con is so obvious that he won't fall for it hook, line, and sinker.

* Mitsunari from ''VisualNovel/IkemenSengoku'' is a brilliant military strategist who's also quite skilled in reading and swordmanship. However, he also is something of a lovable doofus (albeit an [[NiceGuy extremely sweet]] and [[{{Bishonen}} pretty]] one) who [[TheKlutz regularly spills tea while trying to make it]], is [[DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm blissfully oblivious]] to [[DeadpanSnarker Ieyasu]]'s attempts to insult him and [[ObliviousToLove anything related to romance]], and frequently [[ForgetsToEat forgets to eat]] while caught up in his reading and the [[AccidentalMisnaming names]] of people he isn't close friends with.

* [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Luigi]] may qualify for this. [[VideoGame/SuperPaperMario When he's turned evil]], he manages to build a giant killer robot that takes over two hundred hits with an alien space laser to go down in a couple of hours, owns his own airship (that he's implied to have built himself), is a master at card games, is explicitly stated to be the brains of the brothers, when Mario has a job which already requires someone to be very smart, and, yet, acts extremely childish when he's on adventures. On the other hand, [[WildMassGuessing it might all be an act to make himself seem less capable]].

* Jet Propulsion from ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo''. He is an expert mechanic, and can name every single one of Jupiter's moons, yet he is incredibly naive about Earth culture and can't keep his alien identity a secret.

* Yoshiko of ''Manga/AhoGirl'' is stupid that calling her dumb as a rock would be an InsultToRocks and she has an attention span to match. However, she is a physical powerhouse, at one point single handedly taking out a gang of delinquents while under the mistaken belief they bad-mouthed [[TrademarkFavoriteFood bananas]], and is amazingly proficient at traditionally feminine tasks such as cooking.
