* Technically, Daryl Dixon from ''Series/TheWalkingDead''. Daryl's a redneck who never had a job, a life of his own, or even a high school education. However, he would become a GenreSavvy {{badass}} OneManArmy in the zombie apocalypse who'd heroically help other survivors out of the goodness of his heart and protect his TrueCompanions with his life. Despite his lack of social skills and higher education, he is one of the most hardcore heroes on the show and [[TheHero Rick's]] entrusted [[TheLancer second-in-command]].

* Michelangelo from ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' is considered the least intelligent member of the team and is often called out on his foolishness by his own brothers. Though, whenever he has to help them combat serious villains he shows off his amazing ninja skills in hand to hand combat in order to keep up with their badass skills.

Added DiffLines:

* Brak used to be an intelligent, underhanded villain in the original ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost'' show, but following his return in ''WesternAnimation/CartoonPlanet'', ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheBrakShow'', he became a lovable, harmless simpleton. He has no idea how it happened, either:
-->'''Zorak:''' "Say, uh, Brak; how ''did'' you survive that [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat Pirahnamyte barrage]]?"
-->'''Brak:''' "I don't know, it was all a blur. I think I just went to sleep and woke up stupid!"

Added DiffLines:

* Natsu Dragneel from ''Manga/FairyTail'' isn't exactly the sharpest tool in the box. In fact, he actually causes ''more'' problems than he solves. However, he's also a noble hero, a genuine OneManArmy, and a true companion to his friends. Though, that never prevents his TrueCompanions from face palming at his wacky antics.

Added DiffLines:

* Beast Boy from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' is not a very smart person and can be stupid to an almost painful degree. However, when needed the most he'll gladly step up to help his teammates in whatever scenario they face.

* Bulkhead from ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' admits that he's only good for breaking stuff instead of building stuff and is easily confused by {{Technobabble}}. However, he's considered one of the most kindhearted autobots on the team and sometimes outsmarts antagonists who are more intellectually superior than he is.

Added DiffLines:

** Averted with Son Gohan, the son of Goku. He is just as much a good guy as his father and uses the Nimbus from time to time. He is also a scholar who gets top marks and a solid job to suppot his family.


Added DiffLines:

** Though both Tony Tony Chopper (a skilled doctor) and Franky (a skilled shipwright) are both quite intelligent and good-hearted indivduals, if not wildly eccentric and there are your fair share of violent and dumb btrutes.

* Dexter of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory''. While he's less of a {{Jerkass}} than rival genius Mandark, Dexter is still high-strung, arrogant, and seems to have problems in regards to thinking ahead. In contrast, his older sister [=DeeDee=] is usually much more cheerful, sensible (sometimes) and laid back, despite being something of a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.

* The ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' episode "Patrick Smartpants" has TheDitz Patrick [[FlowersForAlgernonSyndrome accidentally become smart]], then quickly turn into an InsufferableGenius who eventually becomes miserable because he can no longer relate to his dumb friend [=SpongeBob=]. So he becomes an idiot again and is ecstatic. [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop This is presented as an unequivocally good thing.]]

* Inverted throughout ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'': it is stated outright that "well-read people are less likely to be evil". The villains are BookDumb at best and often shown to be complete philistines who prefer the maudlin, sentimental writing of Edgar Guest to great works like ''Literature/MobyDick''. Olaf is shown to be unable to spell "poison". Two characters who seem to be evil masterminds [[YouFailBiologyForever identify eagles as mammals]].

* Solaire Of Austora and Seigmeyer of Catarina are two of the most benevolent characters in the CrapsackWorld of DarkSouls, but neither are very intelligent. Solaire is rather ditzy and Seigmeyer is a BoisterousBruiser with SuicidalOverconfidence. Both of them are still [[BunnyEarsLawyer]] very powerful however, so BewareTheNiceOnes.
