* Keiji Tanaka of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' is firmly established to be an utter moron within moments of his entry into V3. However, he has an almost unparalleled skill handling a sword (due to years of practice), to the point where he comes close to defeating an axe-wielding opponent with a broken sabre whilst [[spoiler: bleeding to death.]]

* The Soldier, of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2,'' is considered the dumbest person on the team, [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits which is saying quite a lot.]] His accomplishments have included infiltrating a robot base while disguised with a cardboard Halloween costume ([[AchievementsInIgnorance although this worked]]), he once spent three entire days doing nothing but putting bread in the teleporter, and at least one source suggests he may have brain damage. He's also an absolute combat monster, a master with several different kinds of weapons, and skilled enough to NeckSnap a bear.

* Arcueid of ''{{Tsukihime}},'' even if nobody realizes until Shiki gets involved with her. She has NoSocialSkills due to her upbringing and Ciel is even astonished that she can actually speak. Apart from her [[PersonOfMassDestruction super strength, Marble Phantasm]] and knowledge of the occult she's a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} with no life experience. Actual intelligence is pretty difficult to pin down because of how, well, ''[[ShapedLikeItself ditzy]]'' she is. If she's not killing vampires, she's somewhere between a hyperactive six-year-old and someone a year or three older than Shiki.

* Freddy from ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'' in some incarnations, particularly ''ScoobyDooMysteryInc''. Completely clueless about everything except for traps, particularly of the {{Rube Goldberg|Device}} variety.

* Touka of ''{{Utawarerumono}}'' is apparently an incredibly competent fighter who can run rings around Oboro and Kouro. She's also a rather goofy airhead who's even denser than [[SelectiveObliviousness Hakuoro]] and a ''little'' too eager to be a bodyguard.

Such a character who is well respected may become a [[BunnyEarsLawyer Bunny-Ears Lawyer]]. Opposite of the ModernMajorGeneral, who appears to have specialised incompetence. Contrast with {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. Compare TooDumbToFool. Compare ''and'' Contrast DitzyGenius. May also be a CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass.

* Sandal, from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', bordering on savant. He barely talks (only saying "enchantment"), and mostly just stands around looking dopey, but he's a highly skilled enchanter. Also, at one point, he and his father get attacked. When you arrive on the scene, every mook around him is dead, and when you ask him what happened, he just says "Enchantment!". And again in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', during the Deep Roads expedition, Sandal's adoptive father notices he's missing and asks [[PlayerCharacter Hawke]] to find him. Upon locating the boy, the party sees a bunch of dead [[OurOrcsAreDifferent darkspawn]], including a ''[[KillItWithIce frozen]]'' ogre, with Sandal looking at Hawke innocently.

* In ''Franchise/KingdomHearts,'' Goofy takes this role. He tends to be one of the more observant of the group, albeit speaking as if it's entirely obvious to everyone else. For example, he's the only one that picks up that Disney/{{Mulan}} is female at first. He's also oddly philosophical, assuring a worrying Sora that they would end up somewhere, even if [[spoiler: The End Of The World]] disappeared, at the end of the first game.

** Particularly high magic potential seems to be tied to intelligence, with characters like Zexion and Aqua showing high aptitude in magic. The character with the ''highest'' magical potential in the series? ''Donald Duck'', who isn't just a mage, but also a powerful wizard. He's also, well, Donald Duck!

** From that same episode, the guest pet of the week, Scout, is damaging the Littlest Pet Shop's store property for reasons no one ever finds out. Vinnie, considered by most of the other characters to be the least intelligent of the day camp regular pets, is the only one who can consistently outsmart Scout from causing any major trouble--and the only one able to stop Scout at all.
