* Male example with Park Gang-du from ''Film/TheHost'', who was intentionally given blond highlights to show that he's irresponsible and not very bright. At the end of the film, he gets rid of the blond highlights as a sign of him becoming a more responsible parent.

* Angel Trainee Flonne from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea|HourOfDarkness}}''''VideoGame/{{Disgaea|HourOfDarkness}}'', though she's more ditzy than stupid.


Added DiffLines:

* Sin Kiske from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. Given his pedigree, he should be brilliant (tactical genius for a father, bookworm for a mother, and [[spoiler: two of his grandparents were scientists]]), but he's barely literate. This is mainly because he was raised by Sol, who half-assed his education.

* Glinda from 'Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' fits this trope, at first anyway. When Elphaba writes home and tries to find a word to describe her room-mate, all she can come up with is "blonde". In the song "Popular", however, she explains how her persona is actually hugely helpful, showing the first glimmer of how sharp her mind really is, which serves her well over the rest of the story's course.
--> ''Its not about aptitude/Its the way you're viewed''
--> ''So its very shrewd to be/ Very very popular like me!''

* [[WrenchWench Tess]] from ''JakAndDaxter'' acts like a typical ditzy yellow-haired bimbo, but she is a [[GeniusDitz genius]] when it comes to building weapons.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is a trait of the Aureals (aka Golden Saints), a form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] in service to [[MadGod Sheogorath]], who have golden hair. However, unlike most examples of this trope, they're portrayed as "dumb" in the DumbMuscle or DumbJock sense rather than being TheDitz. They [[HonorBeforeReason don't always think things through]] and [[LeeroyJenkins prefer to attack issues head-on]], which, [[MagicKnight despite their power]], isn't always the best course of action. This happens several times in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'''s ''Shivering Isles'' expansion, and they often need to be bailed out by the [[PlayerCharacter Champion of Cyrodiil]].

(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.
