* Tobuscus in the Wizards Game. In fact, if he animated it, you can be reasonably sure of this.

* PlayedForLaughs in the PeggySue fic ''FanFic/IAmNOTGoingThroughPubertyAgain''. Despite being the most skilled ninja in history and having over twenty years of experience, Naruto is still incapable of answering more than half of the questions on the first phase of the Chunin exams without cheating.

The Idiot Hero is a common character in action series. Often, he is both [[TheProtagonist the protagonist]] and the central character of the narrative. He will frequently use the IndyPloy, will be [[FearlessFool too stupid to be afraid of imminent peril]], and will often have a [[TheDitz short memory span]]. Despite all of this, he is the [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass most effective member of the cast at fighting]]. He will also usually be the [[TheHero leader]] of a [[TheTeam tight-knit group of characters]], despite the fact that he doesn't have the brains to lead a cat out of a paper bag. This is because he's [[TooDumbToFool so stupid as to be incorruptible]], and has the ability to maintain a [[ChildrenAreInnocent childlike innocence]] and faith in people that [[EasyEvangelism inspires those around him]]. His idiocy may also inadvertently [[SpannerInTheWorks ruin an evil plan]].

The Idiot Hero is usually a mutation of TheFool. However, unlike TheFool, the Idiot Hero usually has some idealistic goal in mind, usually becoming the "[[ToBeAMaster best warrior ever]]", and is usually much more aggressive when irked. The Idiot Hero [[InHarmsWay usually enjoys fighting]], and is always looking for a challenge. The only way to actually anger the Idiot Hero will be inevitably to hurt [[{{Protectorate}} one of their friends]], or {{Innocent Bystander}}s.

* Wayne from ''WebVideo/{{Vigilant}}'' is a failure in every aspect of his life, repeatedly testing fate. And yet, he is the central protagonist of the show.

* Neddie Seagoon in ''Radio/TheGoonShow''. Well, at least Bluebottle and Eccles look up to him as a hero. Most of the other characters look on him as just an idiot or an easy mark.

* Shirou Emiya from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' comes close. He blindly clings to an oversimplified ideal of being a "Hero of Justice", without understanding [[ShootTheDog just how horrible]] [[SilentScapegoat such a life]] [[HumansAreBastards would be]]. He's also a sexist [[note]] he refuses to let [[GuardianEntity Saber]] fight for him just because she is a girl, even though the enemies he faces could fillet him with a single attack [[/note]], and knows nothing about sex or women.
