** Part of his naiveté can be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] taking into account that he grew up very far from civilization, with only his adoptive grandfather to raise him in the wilderness, and then he had to live by himself when his grandfather died.

* Natsuhiko Taki from ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'' is an utter moron, plain and simple; He doesn't even know his ''times tables''. But if a question is asked in terms of American football, no matter how complicated, he'll always answer it correctly in seconds.

** This may also be the case for Konoka, who generally acts like TheDitz, even though it was established early on that [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v02/c007/14.html she's near the top of the class]][[note]]She's sixth from the left[[/note]]. Of course, there are [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation alternate]] [[ObfuscatingStupidity theories]] about why she acts the way she does...

* In Creator/MaryGentle's ''Literature/WhiteCrow'' stories, Baltazar Casaubon is decidedly eccentric, a bit of a [[GeniusSlob slob]], and more than a bit of a flake; however, he's definitely a sharp cookie, and always an absolute prodigy in his field (which changes from book to book).

* Dekar from ''LufiaII'' and its remake ''Curse of the Sinistrals''. He claims to be the greatest warrior in the world, and may just be correct despite being a BadassNormal (in the original, anyway). But when a defeated villain promises to have a "special gift" in store for the next time they meet, Dekar asks for a new coat. When not being CrazyAwesome or crazy stupid ([[AchievementsInIgnorance or both]]), however, he can be surprisingly insightful about things such as relationships and the importance of backing up confidence with genuine strength.

** Dr. Zoidberg is... an interesting take. He's an idiot no doubt, but it's more or less stated that he's an extremely good doctor for his ''own'' species, and possibly other StarfishAlien types, it's just that he's hired on in a job that only employs humanoid aliens, something he has no experience with (but pretends to so he doesn't seem like a loser).

* Shigeru from ''Manga/SevenSeeds''. (Talent: Eidetic Memory) His memory is [[PhotographicMemory great]], he can tell Ango where he put the scissors after he last used them a week ago and it's not because he was paying attention, he just "noticed" it. But in everything else, Shigeru is pretty below-average. He lacks stamina, making it difficult for him to climb, he can't get a fire properly started without using something as a kindling and pretty slow, often looking up words in a dictionary when he couldn't remember them... until he decided to just ''learn the entire dictionary by heart''. When Shigeru becomes serious, though, he ''can'' prove himself to be pretty competent in various situations, it's just that his self-confidence is not the best, either.

*[[spoiler:CuteClumsyGirl with OpaqueNerdGlasses Mey-Rin]] from ''Manga/BlackButler'' may be a complete failure at almost everything she does, but not when [[spoiler: she's in ColdSniper mode]].

** It's also possible to max out your skill in Science or Medicine while still having very low Intelligence, so you can end up with a master computer programmer or a doctor skilled enough to cure any disease... who is dumb as a rock and can only have a conversation in HulkSpeak.



* Scooter from the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' series is, for the most part, a dumb as bricks redneck stereotype, with limited grasp of social interaction, and a crush on his sister. However, he also happens to be a brilliant mechanic. He's able to build and maintain cars ant teleporters using only the kinds of junk and scrap metal available on the hell-hole that is Pandora. The sequel shows that he comes from the Hodunk clan, who are all stereotypical rednecks with a talent for mechanical engineering.

** Seina Yamada, protagonist of the ''TenchiMuyo'' SpinOff ''TenchiMuyoGXP: Galaxy Police Transporter'', is purported to be [[BlessedWithSuck "blessed" with the worst luck in the universe]]. His bad luck, however, [[CursedWithAwesome has a tendency to land him in a number of favorable circumstances and eventually lands him his own command with the Galaxy Police]]. The reason for this being that he constantly automatically attracted looting or downright murderous space-pirates, across galactic distances, regardless how much they tried to avoid him. Since space is far too vast for the Galaxy Police to efficiently monitor, they finally had a way to round up the criminals, whereas Seina had so much "bad luck" that he actually started to spend it all. The bad luck also had a tendency to literally ''bleed'' onto other people. He isn't affected as much because he's used to it and, regardless of how bad his luck is, will only suffer injuries.
