* Sousuke of ''Anime/{{Classicaloid}}'' is a budding musician of the desktop music variety, but [[DreadfulMusician his music has caused glass to crack and objects to fall]] (even when it's not particularly loud). When he tries to sing, it causes people to collapse.

* Brian Griffin of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is a dedicated, passionate, confident writer... whose book was such a flop that the unsold copies were sent back to him packed in shredded copies of his book.

* Brian Griffin of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is a dedicated, passionate, confident writer... whose book was such a flop that the unsold copies were sent back to him packed in shredded copies of his book. The one time he writes a hit is supposed to be a TakeThat to the trend of awful self-help books, which he writes in a day. When he's suddenly well-known, he rolls with it until Creator/BillMaher utterly destroys him on his show.

* Tim Taylor from ''Series/HomeImprovement'' is a giftedly bad handyman. If he'd only limit himself to just making repairs or actual reasonable home improvements, he'd be all right, as has been shown repeatedly on the show... except that his ego means that Tim can never settle for 'repaired' when he can go all the way to 'improved,' usually via the eponymous TimTaylorTechnology. His show, Tool Time, is half comedy, half workshop show--Tim's bumbling excess provides the comedy, while Al is his HyperCompetentSidekick and provides the actual useful repair tips. Tim's convinced he's a home improvement genius and is jealous of the more sensible but also far more popular and well-known handyman Bob Vila. Comically, several instances in the show reveal that Tim is actually a competent ''cook'' and can handle himself just fine in the kitchen (when he isn't trying to overclock an appliance).

Notably, Tim is the first person to accidentally launch a BBQ grill into low orbit by trying to break a grill lighting speed world record with rocket fuel.

** Possibly averted with the release of Demon Days, where supposedly he sang (Or whispered, more accurately) the words to the harder, punk track "White Light."

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'': Yukiko, Chie, and Rise have the utmost confidence in their cooking schools and are seemingly oblivious to the fact that they're [[LethalChef absolutely horrible at it]], no matter how many times they're told as such and how many times their meals have made the others sick. Yosuke even lampshades it in ''VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth'', outright asking them ''how'' they haven't realized how badly they suck at cooking.

* Cordelia Chase in ''Series/{{Angel}}'' is so bad at acting that her colleagues debate yelling "Fire" to get out of her play. They reason that isn't not a crowded theatre so it's OK.

* In Creator/DavidEddings' ''Literature/TheTamuli'', the minor antagonist Elron spends most of his free time composing his ridiculously lengthy poem "Ode to Blue" (yes, ''the primary color'') which, according to the protagonist unlucky enough to be forced to hear a part, is the most awful dreck ever allowed to sully a paper. When another character presents him with a starkly poetic (and entirely spontaneous) description of the steel-grey light of a harsh Rendorian dawn, Elron actually flees. This is also true of his villainous persona, "Sabre". While Elron/Sabre clearly ''wants'' to be a MagnificentBastard, and may even think he is one, he doesn't actually have the first clue what one is like. The result, rather than being {{Badass}} and intimidating, is such a ClicheStorm that the heroes, upon seeing him for the first time, are utterly amazed he's actually for real.

* ''{{Friends}}'' has Ross and his "wordless sound poems" which everyone (except Phoebe, who skirts this trope with her original songs), hates, and Joey's show ''Mac and CHEESE'', where the other characters had to argue over what little good there was so they could compliment it for Joey's sake.
