** This is eventually resolved in a much later season. It turns out that Zoidberg is an absolutely brilliant biologist and doctor...when it comes to ''aliens.'' It's only his knowledge of ''humans'' that's absolutely horrid. [[spoiler: But he considers Professor Farnsworth his closest friend, so he works for him even though he could make millions elsewhere.]]



* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E23InspirationManifestation Inspiration Manifestation]]", the spell book was left unguarded and defended only by a single lock, rather than, say, being moved to the secure archives in Canterlot, or at least having a barrier that needed more than some bolt cutters to get through. By then, one would expect the dangerous artifacts to have been moved to a secure location. Spike was correct in saying that the book was basically unguarded.

* In one ''Manga/LoveHina'' story, when Motoko notes how often Keitaro has an {{accident|alPervert}}, Keitaro responds that despite the frequency of said accidents, none of the girls ever move out of the way. Motoko admits he does have a point.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11181910/5/Yet-Again-Still-Even-More-Fragments Dark Arts and Crafts]]'', Xander has two surprisingly insightful moments regarding Angel. First, while they do know now that Angel is a vampire, he's also been helpful in the past so they should reserve judgment until they know more. Second, Xander notes that redemption is more than just helping someone because you hurt someone else.
-->'''Xander''': "Being a good person is like jumping in a lake. When you're wet, you're wet. And being dry now doesn't change the fact you were wet earlier."

* In the end of [[Anime/{{K}} K: Return of Kings]], when Misaki [[spoiler: saves Saruhiko from JUNGLE and they finally repair their friendship ([[ShipTease or something more]]), Saruhiko asks why Misaki is no longer angry with him for betraying the Red Clan. Misaki says it's because if he'd go on this dangerous mission for the Blue King, then he ''is'' loyal, because the Blue King was his king all along.]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Saruhiko''']]: [Misaki]'s simple-minded, stupid, ignorant, and doesn't get a thing... And yet somehow, he's able to come up with the perfect answer. No wonder I'd go through all this trouble just for him.

* Boomstick from ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'' is the host who would just [[TheFool make up as many jokes about the competitors as possible]] while leaving [[MadScientist Wiz]] to tell the views [[MrExposition everything they need to know about the fighters]]... most of the time. He shows a [[ShownTheirWork surprising amount]] of knowledge about dinosaurs, in particular velociraptors and has a PhD, albeit one related to fried poultry. He's also smart enough to identify Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture by ear. This is often to the pleasant surprise of Wiz.

* In the ''[[VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs Injustice: Gods Among Us]]'' tie-in comic, Green Arrow takes Harley Quinn to his hideout to protect her from a [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge rampaging]] Superman. When she hears that it's named [[GiverOfLameNames the Arrowcave]], Harley says it's not a very good name[[note]]Of course, it's a vestige from back when GA was little more than Batman with an archer motif[[/note]]; "Batcave" works because that's where bats live, so Arrow should name his place "The Quiver". Ollie's response is "That...is actually a better name." Black Canary also agrees when Harley brings up the subject to her.

Cosmo proceeds to unplug the TV (and the 12 other appliances Vicky is using at the moment) and tells Wanda "I have an idea". Cosmo and Wanda then act out shows as Vicky channel surfs.

** Detective Dick Gumshoe has his fair share of these. He's usually a slow witted idiot however he does have his moments, such as when he suggests that the true killer's motive in the murder of Russell Berry [[spoiler:could be the fact that they HAD NO motive in the first place]]. Phoenix immediately shakes this off as Gumshoe being stupid again, and the player probably would on a first run through as well. [[spoiler:Turns out he IS right, because Russell Berry was not the intended victim and thus there was no motive for killing ''him.'']]

Phoenix remarks to himself that this is actually the first true thing he's said all day.

* In ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'', Miura, who is not one of the better editors, and who is often distrusted by the main characters for his belief that they would be better off doing gag manga, immediately notices that something's off about a chapter of Detective Trap that they wrote, and realizes that they were using fan suggestions in a desperate attempt to avoid cancellation. He gives them a lecture, saying that the writers don't necessarily represent the entire readership, who largely expect the same shonen-style stories as always. The main characters realize he has a point, [[spoiler:even if they ultimately don't succeed in saving Detective Trap]].
