* Subverted in OuranHighSchoolHostClub in a (manga-only) particularly memorable arc when resident IdiotHero [[{{Keet}} Tamaki]] [[{{Bishonen}} Suoh]] gets a fever, much to everybody's shock, gets delirious, and ends up kissing [[{{Bifauxnen}} Haruhi]] on the forehead as a gesture of [[ObliviousToLove 'parental affection']]. He, of course, forgets the entire exchange when he gets better.

* In an early chapter of ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'', Asahi notices that Youko isn't in class and worries that her [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire secret]] was discovered. He asks the teacher, who explains that "The rest of us aren't idiots, so we catch colds!"; to Asahi's annoyance, all his classmates nod in agreement.[[note]]Of course, Youko actually '''is''' [[TheDitz kinda dumb]], but at that point in the story her classmates don't realize it because she projects the image of a "cool beauty" in order to hide her secret.[[/note]]
