** On the other other hand, his degree in Child Psychology could rest entirely on the fact that he is himself a PsychopathicManChild, and his becoming a movie producer could well be a TakeThat against the standards of current Hollywood producers, making this case a solid [[SubvertedTrope subversion.]]

* Enrique Borgos in Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga A Civil Campaign]]''. Brilliant at biochemistry, but the man lacks knowledge of economics, social interaction, plumbing, personal hygiene, and can barely tie his own shoes.

* Georgette "Buffy" Messonier in Mira Grant's ''[[Literature/{{Newsflesh}}Feed]]'' is a dreamy space case who makes her living writing zombie romance and poetry, but her technological genius is eclipsed only by her paranoia--she managed to successfully bug pretty much every government office she ever set foot in, and, given that she was part of a news team embedded with Senator Ryman's presidential campaign, she spent time in a ''lot'' of Super Secret locations. Some of her public persona may have been ObfuscatingStupidity, but she was still pretty ditzy.

* Joey from ''Series/{{Friends}}'' is dim, shallow and a fairly bad actor, but he has an amazing talent to attract girls. It helps that he's blandly pretty and can be quite earnest. He also once memorized everything from an encyclopedia volume (the one with the words starting with "V") and he was the first one from the gang to deduce that Monica and Chandler are hooking up.

* Clopin- no, not [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame that one]], but the Touceet from ''Fanfic/PokemonOpalAndGarnet.'' He's usually a random {{Cloudcuckoolander}}... unless you ask him how a certain [=PokeLatin=] word (or his own name) is pronounced. Then he will be more than happy to teach you. (By the way, [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY It Is Pronounced Kloh-PAH~n.]])

** Bob falls into this category, as he is generally stupid and naive, but he is excellent at making Krabby Patties, doing math, and art. He was once able to calculate the number of hours left in a week, in his head, in less than five seconds.

** 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).
