* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': While all the male Wattersons of the family are stupid to a painful degree, they're all usually the well-intentioned heroes of the series who try to do what's right and bring justice to their neighborhood... [[AntiHero most of the time.]]

** Sussie is very dumb, to te point she doesn't know the difference between a duck and a dog. However, she loves all her classmates, and gives them many gifts (even iff they're lame). She likes everyone and not once has been rude or angry at a character. However, one episode implies she acts that way on purpose, while in other episode, it is shown she was very intelligent but got stupid after being [[ChildhoodBrainDamage dropped by her parents]].

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty''. In the first two seasons, Rick is a genius and Morty is an idiot. Rick smacks Morty around and doesn't care about anyone else, while Morty is nice but weak and useless. In the episode ''Rickcounters of the Rick-kind'' we meet AlternateUniverse Dumb Rick, who is a nice person, and [[spoiler: Evil Morty, who seems to be much smarter than the other Morty's.]] In season 3, Morty is shown becoming smarter as a result of his adventures with Rick, but also to be turning more cynical and less good.

** In particular, his [[TheChessmaster seventh]] and [[BewareTheNiceOnes tenth]] incarnations both have a nasty reputation for manipulating companions and civilians alike; the only differences between the two of them is that the seventh (who's a lot better at it) will usually have a better reason for his manipulations.

''Literature/MartinFierro'': The protagonist invokes this trope when he says that [[{{ApatheticCitizens}} he didnít want to vote in the last election]] because ''He is a gaucho redondo'' (dumb) and those things do not interest him. If the judge was angry at this, he would have done better [[{{PersecutedIntellectuals}} persecuting the real culprits]], or in other words, Fierro thinks that people interested in the election are culprits of... something.
