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.

covered more thoroughly in the anime & manga sub-page
* 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.
