* Detective Shunpei Kusanagi of Keigo Higashino's novel ''The Devotion of Suspect X'' absolutely dreads learning math, which was his worst subject in high school, and consequently majored in sociology in university. His friend, Manabu Yukawa, is physics professor and frequently uses his knowledge of science and math to help him solve cases, and has the nickname of "Detective Galileo".

* At [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the WhateleyUniverse, math is [[PersonOfMassDestruction Tennyo's]] worst subject. She dreads her genius brother finding out. On the other hand, Phase is a freshman and is taking trigonometry with the juniors and seniors. And there are the MadScientist types who have already placed out of all high school math. Also, [[EldritchAbomination Carmilla]] created a theory of mutant powers based on post-doctorate level mathematics. (Of course, this one's kind of justified by her having already ''had'' an not entirely uneventful adult human life before turning into what she is now. Adding the superhuman processing power of her new form to that can't have hurt.)

::Miki is the most blunt about it, but no one else in the cast especially likes mathematics. Hisao's teacher Mutou prefers science, as does Hisao himself, Lilly's main interest is in English and Rin and Nomiya have a passion for art.

* People who prefer the arts to math and science are called "right-brained." People who prefer the reverse are "left-brained." In reality, lateralization of brain functions can vary depending on your native language, your gender, which hand is your dominant hand, etc.

* People In popular culture, people who prefer the arts to math and science are sometimes called "right-brained." People who prefer the reverse are "left-brained." In reality, lateralization of brain functions can vary depending on your native language, your gender, which hand is your dominant hand, etc. Anyone who uses their alleged hemispheric dominance as an excuse for being bad at math (or art, or cartography, etc.) probably has no idea what they're talking about. Aside from people with learning disabilities like dyscalculia, pretty much anyone can learn how to do math, even if they find it boring, just like how anyone can learn to draw or play an instrument with enough practice.

Algebra! Calculus! Geometry! Arithmetic! How can we even begin to describe these unspeakable horrors, guaranteed to strike fear, anxiety, nausea, [[ParanoiaFuel paranoia]], [[GoMadFromtheRevelation madness]], and [[HeroicBSOD paralysis]] into the hearts and souls of all? Mathematics, most of all the advanced courses that delve in otherworldly chaotic theories, easily presents itself as torturous, [[MindScrew mindscrewy]], or just downright [[MindRape mind-rapingly]] [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow Lovecraftian]].

* The edutainment short ''WesternAnimation/DonaldDuckInMathmagicLand'' plays this straight at the beginning, when Donald insists that math is for "eggheads". The Spirit of Adventure manages to convince him otherwise... by showing him how he can use it to shoot pool.

** A continuity error since, way back in the original ''Dragon Ball'', Master Roshi taught Goku how to count, and he had no such problem when the MC asked his age in the first Martial Arts Tournament he took part (he thought he was 14, but he learned he was 12 when he learned to count).

** Its also worth keeping in mind that the one of the primary motivations for developing new mathematics is to avoid either doing some other math that is much harder or to avoid going through lots of tedious arithmetic. A simple example is that knowing how to multiply means not having to do lots of addition.
