* SpiderMan certainly has his flaws, he's hot headed, neurotic and can occasionally descend into bouts of self-pity, yet he's still extremely loyal to his loved ones, lives by a very strict ThouShaltNotKill code and above all else, he values responsibility. He also happens to be a genius scientist.

*** Gokue's Bookdumb nature and naivety as a child was due to being raised by his adoptive grandfather in the middle of nowhere before going to avdenture with Bulma and eventually settling down with Chichi in a small house in the countryside, so he lacked any proper schooling outside of what he learned from Master Roshi and later martial artists.

* Touma from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''. Practically the only skill he has against his enemies is his intellect, as Imagine Breaker has extremely limited range (he has to be literally touching the thing for it to work). He will often let himself take multiple punches that he knows he can manage if it will give him a chance to get in once good shot against his opponent.

Almost inevitably, the [[IncorruptiblePurePureness genuine goodness]] of the character will triumph, often accompanied by the [[HoistByHisOwnPetard comeuppance]] of the disbeliever. The ConMan will be thwarted, the [[JadeColoredGlasses sceptical cynic]] will be surprised by ThePowerOfTrust, and everyone will discover that [[LetsGetDangerous "good" is not a synonym for "clueless victim"]].

* Arthur in ''ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace''. His enemies often assume that because he's nice, unassuming, and prepared to give the benefit of the doubt if possible, he can't be dangerous. Many of them are dead now, and the remaining ones [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/2256.htm still haven't learnt]].

* In ''{{Disney/Zootopia}},'' [[Judy's voice actress WordOfSaintPaul]] specifically addresses the character this way: she's [[NaiveNewcomer new to the city]] and a cheerful idealist, but that doesn't mean that you should underestimate her. She does fall for [[CunningLikeAFox Nick]]'s hustle when they first meet, causing him to dismiss her as a "dumb bunny," but after that she's wise to his schemes and tricks him into giving her the information that she needs to blackmail him. By movie's end, the two are working together to [[OutGambitted Out-Gambit]] the villains.

A direct inversion of GoodIsDumb and DumbIsGood. Someone who is GoodIsNotDumb may realize that being nice to villains simply isn't going to cut it, so they may incorporate GoodIsNotSoft. The ultimate stage of this is the GuileHero who can play TheChessmaster's game without falling into the ambiguity or clear villainy of the MagnificentBastard.

* While the most obvious example from the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse is [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Captain America]], the best example is Agent Coulson of S.H.I.E.L.D., who's always quiet and polite even when he's [[Film/TheAvengers2012 pointing a BFG at an Asgardian demigod.]]
