* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Ogryns are a nine-foot-tall ogre-like subspecies of humanity noted for their strength, endurance, and childlike mentality and devotion (and for the smarter ones, childlike intelligence as well). This being 40K, the flipside is that they're also easy to turn traitor as they rarely question orders (telling them that the Emperor is angry at the loyalists is enough to set them on a rampage).

* Avan Hardins from ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesII'' is very much an IdiotHero, but he enjoys making friends and is completely free of any prejudice regarding things like race, social status, or rank.

* While it fluctuates a lot, this is the generally accepted personality of popular MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic character Muffins/Derpy Hooves. A little dim, somewhat poorly educated and very clumsy, but with a kind, honest heart and an optimistic outlook that's often contrasted with more intelegent, yet cynical characters (such as the Doctor from DoctorWho, very popularly). This is pretty much canonised in her appearance in 'Slice of Life'.

There are [[TheDitz many]] [[CloudCuckoolander characters]] who are dumb or airheaded. However, for some of these, what they lack in intelligence they make up for in compassion and altruism. The '''Kindhearted Simpleton''' isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but is always well-meaning and compassionate to other characters. Probably will not be quite as dumb as a standard [[TheDitz Ditz]] or as airheaded as a CloudCuckoolander, since that is not the focus of their character. If the BrainlessBeauty isn't being an AlphaBitch, then she (Or he) is this instead.

* ''Franchise/DragonBall'':
** Goku is one of the quintiessential examples in Anime. An endearingly innocent and kind hearted child that carries his innocence and kindness well into his adulthood, and even as a ''grandfather''! [[BewareTheniceOnes Unless you're his opponent or you REALLY piss him off.]]
** Also, Mrs. Brief, Bulma's AbsurdlyYouthfulMother.

Due to their well-meaning nature but below-average intelligence, these characters have the potential to be taken advantage of and manipulated by smarter (and occasionally evil) characters. The Kindhearted Simpleton should beware of {{Manipulative Bastard}}s and {{Guile Hero}}es. (They should also [[TheFarmerAndTheViper know it's a snake when they bring it in.]]) These characters rarely, if ever, get angry, but when they do, it's usually because someone has taken advantage of their trusting nature one time too many, or has dared to hurt the ones they love. This may occasionally result in the character taking a level in badass, or revealing a hidden badass side, but this type of character is very effective at delivering AnAesop without having to resort to violence, whether it's through a ShutUpHannibal speech, giving the villain his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, or asking a friend WhatTheHellHero, though they are also just as likely to inform hero and villain that YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre.

* The [[spoiler: eternally]] young lovers, Isaac Dian and Miria Harvent in ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' are a pair of bubbly, good-willed pretty criminals who often like to justify their actions by [[JustLikeRobinHood stealing from people like the mafia]], and even when they are just being normal thieves, they are still being unwittingly comical and charming while doing so. While they think of themselves as legitimate criminals, hardly anyone takes them seriously, and whenever they do pull a substantial heist, they either run too fast to even be noticed or come off as too likable to be stopped, as was the case when they robbed Eve Genoard's house of its possessions (doing so after hearing her explain that possessions make her unhappy). When the ''Flying Pussyfoot'' gets held up, they constantly are on the look-out for a monster they believe to be roaming the train, and even manage to [[spoiler: save Czeslaw Meyer from being strapped to the underside of one of the cars.]]

* Donny in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' fits this trope, although more due to lack of knowledge than a lack of intelligence.
