* ''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

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=].

* The titled character of ''WesternAnimation/{{Igor}}'' thinks he's smart enough to make monsters. But really, is to stupid to do anything right.

* 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.)

** Played straight, if the country measures in Celsius, though (likely around 20-25).

** Bubbles, being aware that the test is meant to hinder them, simply refused to take it at all seriously. Buttercup just did it without considering what Him was sure to do in grading the test, and Blossom took it way, way too seriously--her rage proving the point. Him graded accordingly.

** In a tropical banana republic, room temperature sans air conditioning could well be around 90 to 95, so the implied IQ of 85 to 90 is really just.. kind of dumb.
