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 and DumbBlonde. May also be a CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass.

* Takes a dark turn in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}'', where The Institute is revealed as a post-apocalypse beacon of genuine scientific progress, but because of the plain LACK of diplomats, engineers, and psychologists (low charisma and luck stats), all that science is dedicated solely to the suffering of Boston - and the Institute personnel don't realize it.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'', the difference between [[LuckStat Luck]] and [[{{Zeerust}} Intelligence]] is described as this. Having a high Luck means that you are able to calculate variables, odds, percentages, and basically do highly advanced mathematics in your head in situations. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And get critical hits]]. Intelligence is similar, though more closely relates to wit, raw intellect, and technical and scientific ability. So this means that if you have a high Luck character with very low Intelligence, you'll be robbing casinos blind, bumble through the wasteland without any problems, and ''perform brain surgery'' just because you [[AchievementsInIgnorance thought you could]].
** 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.

In ''New Vegas'', at least, this mostly due to the Courier thinking it's [[RuleOfFunny funny]] to talk like that to smart people, like Arcade Gannon, as they have normal conversations with everyone else.

* 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 (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.

* Ashley J. "Ash" Williams of the ''Franchise/EvilDead'' series is a stubborn knucklehead who makes stupid decisions and rarely pays much attention to important information. That said, he's incredibly GenreSavvy when it comes to dealing with the supernatural and he knows enough about chemistry and mechanical engineering to make an entire army of Deadites his bitch, using ''14th-Century'' technology.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' has Beast Boy. Normally the PluckyComicRelief, he's also very GenreSavvy, and in the penultimate episode, [[spoiler:he rallies the four remaining Titans and gets pretty close to taking down the Brotherhood of Evil, before they get caught. But of course, then Cyborg, Starfire and Raven, among others, pop out of the woodwork when it was thought they were frozen like the rest. Beast Boy continues acting as leader until Robin is unfrozen, however.]]

* Huehuecoyotl/Huey of ''WebAnimation/NoEvil'' is irresponsible, prone to acting without thinking, notoriously irrational and lacking in general respect for other people's belongings and personal space (to the extent of having a giant pile of stolen scarecrows). Despite this, he is also a talented craftsman and the most adept tracker in the group.

* The title character of ''AizawaSanMultiplies'' is the top student in her class and an excellent athlete. She's also extremely prone to spacing out, forgetting where she is, and otherwise acting like a complete CloudCuckooLander.

* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts,''
** Goofy 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!

* Manel Muzas/Muzamán from ''WebAnimation/CalicoElectronico'' can be really absent-minded at times, but he owns an electronic gadget store, and it's implied that most of the stuff he sells is made by himself.
