* Played with in ''Film/BillAndTed''. While neither of our heroes are especially bright, blond Bill is the more pragmatic of the two, while brunet Ted is slightly dopier.

* Hilariously inverted with the titular [[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy Billy and Mandy]], where redheaded Billy is the dumb one while blonde Mandy is the fiery one.

* The "dumb blonde vs. smart brunette" trope is inverted in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' where the blond Sabrina is an intelligent, nice CoolLoser and the infamous AlphaBitch Libby has black/dark brown hair (though while Libby is not exactly a BrainyBrunette, she isn't particularly dumb either. She's just mean).

** Another episode had Sabrina getting hit with an airhead virus that turned her into the stereotypical dumb blonde.

* Brazilian rapper Gabriel O Pensador calls them out in his song [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XIsqSBE6w74 Loraburra]]", though it ends by saying there are dumb blondes "who don't own a drugstore partnership" and have different hair colors.

* {{Subverted|Trope}} with Yang Xiao Long from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''. She's actually quite brilliant, if short-tempered and prone to act on her heart rather than her head. She's also aware of this image and [[ObfuscatingStupidity acts like it to get the jump on people]]. Most visible in the ''Yellow'' trailer, where she flirts with the mob boss Junior and offers to kiss him, only to sock him hard when he lowers his guard and leans in.

* Poland from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' is a quintessential example...he needed someone to turn the table while he was standing on it to screw in a lightbulb. He also talks like a ValleyGirl and often pushes around a {{Brainy Brunet|te}} (Lithuania). Poland was still smart enough to [[spoiler:buy time for Lithuania to pull his CrowningMomentOfAwesome in the Battle of Tannenburg, doing so and remaining more or less calm while ''Prussia was pointing a sword at him'']]. That, and the whole series pokes fun at stereotypes of all kinds; his supposed stupidity is actually PlayedForLaughs, and nations with ''other'' hair colors can be just as dumb (re: Italy, a brunet who's pretty much TheDitz) and [[PlentyOfBlondes almost every Northern European is blond anyway]].

* Nurse Bendy from ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' shows a more depressing side to the stereotype in Season 3, which reveals that she's [[ExtremeDoormat often mistreated]] (not to mention being possibly [[spoiler: sexually abused]]) for being a pessimistic dumb blonde. It isn't until she [[spoiler: is reunited with her equally unintelligent son, Joe]], that she finally finds someone who accepts her for who she is in quite a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] fashion.
