** Hodor can only say his own name, but for all that, he seems to entirely understand what people say to him; he just can't say anything back except his own name, which he utters with varying inflections depending on what he means to say. When Meera talks to him in "The Door" about the kind of breakfast she's looking forward to, he answers with increasing enthusiasm as she lists a fried egg, a rasher of bacon, a slice of blood sausage.

* [[TheDragon Lord Crump]] from ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' is allegedly both a moron and, according to [[BigBad Grodus]] is his "most idiotic henchman". However, while a bit dense, Crump time and time again is very good at laying traps and out thinking the heroes, managing to outfox Mario and friends ''twice'' in the second dungeon, once by rigging a fake Puni Orb pedestal to entrap them, and once by letting them find the Crystal Star and swiping it from under their noses. He also only resorts to fighting them when he has superior numbers or [[HumongousMecha Magnus Von Grapple]] at his side as well.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'': Master Xehanort believes the Worlds have a "tyranny of Light" and must be balanced out with Darkness. First problem is, the universe is segregated into planes of light and dark, and the main settings happen to all be in the realm of light. Second problem is, the realm of darkness is a {{Hell}}ish EldritchLocation no one would want to live in--what's the appeal of darkness exactly? Third problem is, all the major threats (even the extraordinarily rare LightIsNotGood examples) have been Darkness-aligned, whereas all the major solutions (even the extraordinarily rare DarkIsNotEvil examples) have been Light-aligned. All of this, along with him being such a PersonOfMassDestruction {{Sociopath}} who clearly favors Darkness anyway, is why he's so UnintentionallyUnsympathetic to many players.

** On the other hand, the Game Master will often stack useless flaws onto NPCs in order to give them enough skill points to keep up with his ridiculously powerful players. "I gave them Tourette's and made them mute" was an excuse given for how Buggy's goons had such good dodging skills.

* Pete in ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' took Lactose Intolerance as a flaw ... for [[Franchise/StarWars R2-D2]], a droid that doesn't eat. His character is also supposed to be effectively mute, which never comes into play as none of the players ever act that much in character anyway.

* A plot point in ''VideoGame/Ecco the Dolphin: Defender of the Future'' is that the Foe stole virtues (actual literal virtues, like Compassion and Intelligence) from the dolphins, but in practice the 'altered' dolphins don't ''completely'' lack those traits. One of them helps you solve a puzzle in the level ''Master of Forgotten Skills'', and another is desperate to save his ill father. It's more like those traits are weaker, or fewer dolphins have them, than that they are gone completely.
