* Asterix the Gaul's best bud, Obelix, is ordinarily the ''Dumb Muscle'' of the group. He does occasionally have ideas that actually save the day, when he figured out that, since he took a horse, Cacophonix the bard went on a long journey, meaning he went to Luteia as he earlier considered to try his hand at professional singing. Druid Getafix, surprised at the dumb but lovable hero's insight, stated "That boy does have his moments!"

** In ''[[{{VideoGame/GuiltyGear}} Guilty Gear Xrd]]'', the super-intelligent dragon wizard, Dr. Paradigm, appears in Story Mode without the bubble of water he used to have around him to breathe in ''Guilty Gear 2: Overture.'' As it turns out, this is because the super-'''un'''inteligent Sin Kiske once asked him why, given his mental acumen, he didn't just make a spell that let him breathe air.

--> '''Goku''': But Vegeta, you're already dead! You've got no choice!

* ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'': The goblins need to pray to their god for assistance but he will only answer a chief [[spoiler:and their current chief is dead]]. On top of that they need a Teller to choose a chief and the Teller is dead. When Complains and the others overthink it, Vorpal suggests just doing the Teller ceremony to select a Teller who can then name one of them chief; the rest of the goblins are stunned at the perfect solution.

* Xander's explanation in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9663877/11/And-Another-Thing-I-Hate-About-You And Another Thing I Hate About You]]" of why a relationship between Angel and Cordelia would never work makes far more sense than Angel is comfortable admitting. Particularly when he explains what would happen if a being with Cordelia didn't break the curse (by giving him a moment of perfect happiness).
