** In ''Literature/TheRestaurantAtTheEndOfTheUniverse'', when the group are trying to understand how they ended up at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Arthur suddenly has a flash of insight about time travel, saying that they've travelled in time but not in space. Zaphod mocks him but the waiter interrupts: "Your monkey has got it right, sir."

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10685852/25/On-a-Pale-Horse On a Pale Horse]]'', Ron Weasley is proven to be considerably more insightful regarding Harry than Hermione is. Besides realizing he can encourage the underweight Harry to eat more by over-eating himself, he convinces Harry to goof off rather than study because he knows Hermione is unknowingly bullying Harry into it and some goofing off can help Harry relax. Furthermore, Ron is the only one to immediately recognize Death as an alternate Harry, figuring it out even faster than Harry had earlier. When asked, Ron simply responds that of course he recognizes his best mate.

Compare ActuallyPrettyFunny, TooDumbToFool, TheCuckoolanderWasRight, WisdomFromTheGutter, MistakenForProfound, IHaveNothingToSayToThat, and NobodysThatDumb. When the character is the subject of this reaction because they're mean, unlikable, or evil, it's JerkassHasAPoint (or VillainHasAPoint when it's coming from an outright antagonist). If the reaction stems from the character making the point having a knack for doing the opposite thing, it's HypocriteHasAPoint. When the author intends to make a character's argument come across as wrong, but the readers agree, it's StrawmanHasAPoint. Related to WisdomFromTheGutter.

WisdomFromTheGutter. Not to be confused with ObfuscatingStupidity, where a character is only ''pretending'' to be stupid, though too many moments like this can make people suspicious of such a character (and will sometimes lead to EpilepticTrees amongst fans about characters who are ''actually'' stupid secretly being that trope).

** Season Three: When consulting his grandfather [[MagnificentBastard Tywin]] in the throne room, Joffrey voices his concerns about Daenerys Targaryen and her three dragons. Three centuries before, Aegon Targaryen conquered Westeros with only three dragons. The repeatedly-demonstrated cunning Varys points out the Westerosi would have nowhere to hide if they are attacked by dragons. However, Tywin contemptuously brushes the threat aside, by asserting that dragons have been extinct for centuries and even if Daenerys does have dragons, they are small curiosities on the far side of the world and no threat to Joffrey's rule, but the viewer has already seen that Daenerys, her dragons and her army are a real threat - Daenerys has in fact conquered ''every city in Essos she's visited''. At the moment, she commands not only her three dragons (less than three years old but the biggest already powerful enough to single-handedly roast men alive) and two highly-experienced fighters, but ''eight thousand fully trained and suicidally loyal soldiers''.(In fairness, it's possible that Tywin already understood the threat, but had no interest in Joffrey trying to help deal with it.) When Tywin gets around to updating his knowledge of her, he agrees that Daenerys is an incredible threat. Of course, Joffrey isn't around to bask in it.

* Done by [[PsychopathicManchild Joffrey]] [[TooDumbToLive Lannister]] of all people in ''Series/GameOfThrones''. He gets one of these each season [[spoiler:until he dies]]. Of course, this is not helped by Joffrey's inclination towards ridiculing, humiliating, and dominating those around him, even to people where it's not wise to do so, especially his grandfather.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'', taking advice from [[DumbMuscle Knuckles]] on anything is usually a bad idea. However, in "Eggman's Anti-Gravity Ray", [[SomeAnvisNeedToBeDropped he gives a surprising insight on true feminism]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTd3Bry-ZT4 by saying that whenever the breaking of gender roles gets called out, it ultimately undermined the gender equality concept by implying that it's an EXCEPTION, not the status quo]].
