** Season Three: When consulting his grandfather [[MagnificentBastard Tywin]] in the throne room, Joffrey voices his concerns about Daenerys Targaryen and her three dragons. Three centuries before, Aegon Targaryen conquered Westeros with only three dragons. The repeatedly-demonstrated cunning Varys points out the Westerosi would have nowhere to hide if they are attacked by dragons. However, Tywin contemptuously brushes the threat aside, by asserting that dragons have been extinct for centuries and even if Daenerys does have dragons, they are small curiosities on the far side of the world and no threat to Joffrey's rule, but the viewer has already seen that Daenerys, her dragons and her army are a real threat - Daenerys has in fact conquered ''every city in Essos she's visited''. At the moment, she commands not only her three dragons (less than three years old but the biggest already powerful enough to single-handedly roast men alive) and two highly-experienced fighters, but ''eight thousand fully trained and suicidally loyal soldiers''.(In fairness, it's possible that Tywin already understood the threat, but had no interest in Joffrey trying to help deal with it.) When Tywin gets around to updating his knowledge of her, he agrees that Daenerys is an incredible threat. Of course, Joffrey isn't around to bask in it.

* Done by [[PsychopathicManchild Joffrey]] [[TooDumbToLive Lannister]] of all people in ''Series/GameOfThrones''. He gets one of these each season [[spoiler:until he dies]]. Of course, this is not helped by Joffrey's inclination towards ridiculing, humiliating, and dominating those around him, even to people where it's not wise to do so, especially his grandfather.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'', taking advice from [[DumbMuscle Knuckles]] on anything is usually a bad idea. However, in "Eggman's Anti-Gravity Ray", [[SomeAnvisNeedToBeDropped he gives a surprising insight on true feminism]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTd3Bry-ZT4 by saying that whenever the breaking of gender roles gets called out, it ultimately undermined the gender equality concept by implying that it's an EXCEPTION, not the status quo]].

** Jim (who plays ui-Gon Jinn, Padme, and han Solo, among others) is a textbook loon who routinely has to be reined in by the others... so finding out that he can think logically, can be sensible, and is working on a PhD in ''geophysics'', comes as a bit of shock to the other players. As Pete points out, "Roleplaying is his downtime. He likes to turn his brain '''off'''."

* ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'':
** Todd Chávez is not the smartest character in the show, but he makes a lot of really good points when calling out [=BoJack=] for his crap.
*** In "Horse Majeure", Todd tells [=BoJack=] he should stop trying to sabotaging Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter's wedding, citing that it's not about him and Diane has already made her choice.
*** In his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech in "It's You", he points out that messing up and then [[EasilyForgiven feeling bad like all is forgiven]] ''[[AesopAmnesia repeatedly]]'' [[RealityEnsues can only work a couple of times in real life]], it's extremely selfish of anybody to use their DarkAndTroubledPast to [[FreudianExcuse justify hurting people]], and ultimately '''''[=BoJack=]''''' is the only one to blame for everything he does, especially when the actions have hurtful consequences.
** While the "dumbass" part is {{downplayed}} with Mr. Peanutbutter's case at best, he still has the occasional insight from time to time.
*** He calls out Diane for continuing with her campaign against Hank Hippopopalous, even though she promised she wouldn't.
*** After [=BoJack=] makes a hurtful jab at his relationship with Diane, Mr. Peanutbutter ''finally'' gives [=BoJack=] a major TheReasonYouSuckSpeech -- explaining that all he wants is to be [=BoJack=]'s friend, but all the horse does is needlessly insult him.
*** Season 3 has him give Diane a WhatTheHellHero moment after she [[spoiler:spent a night investigating with [=BoJack=], but didn't call once to tell him, making him worried]].
