* ''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).

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 (Also compare SpoiledSweet).

* ''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.]]

* MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic has Pinkie Pie, who's normally regarded as air-headed, [[InnocentlyInsensitive socially oblivious]] and generally [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} off in her own little world]], but is one of the kindest ponies you'd ever meet barring [[AllLovingHero Fluttershy]].

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. But then, the tendency to be large also give cause to BewareTheNiceOnes.
