* One story arc in ''{{ComicStrip/Zits}}'' involved Jeremy and Hector trying out an online IQ test, with Hector getting a score of 162, while Jeremy gets 32.
-->'''Hector:''' Wait, is that your IQ or the outside temperature?
** Subverted when Connie tells Jeremy to embrace any hint that the test may be inaccurate. [[spoiler: Walt then comes in and says he got a score of 176, causing Jeremy to [[ExactWords embrace him]].]]

* Another character with ridiculously low IQ: [[TinyToonAdventures Elmyra Duff]], who has "no detectable IQ" (presumed to mean an IQ of 0). This in comparison with a jar of mayonnaise, which is stated to have an IQ of 1.

IQ test scores are designed to follow a normal (bell curve) distribution with a mean of 100 points and a standard deviation of 15 points. The table below shows the expected statistics of below average [=IQs=].

* ''VideoGame/{{Awesomenauts}}'' has [[MeaningfulName Derpl]] [[TheIdiot Zork]], a character so dumb he scored lower than ''plankton'' on a galactic IQ test.
** Possibly averted, as Plankton are incidentally [[IntelligentGerbil a species of mildly intelligent aliens]].

* In ''TheWestingGame'', in Sandy's notes of the other heirs to Westing's will, a note on Otis Joseph Amber is that his I.Q is 50 (Mild to moderate mental retardation, depending on the scale you're looking at). A person with this I.Q would have difficulties on their own, but it's stated that Amber is a delivery boy [[spoiler:and even marries Berthe Erica Crowe after the contest ends.]] When he's around, he acts more [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} nutty]] yet competent than mentally impaired

* Played with in ''ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Him Diddle Riddle." As part of a series of tasks on the Professor's behalf, Him has the girls take their SAT tests. Buttercup's score is 35, Blossom's is 10 (which pisses her off big time). Bubbles--who drew a pattern of a flower on her test--scored a whopping 1075. (Head writer Amy Rogers mentioned on a message board that it showed that Bubbles was actually the smartest of the three. Perhaps a tongue-in-cheek comment.)
