* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Gilderoy Lockhart initially appeared to be one of these, although in the end it turns out he's well aware of his own incompetence, and is impressively competent at concealing it, at least to those who don't know him well.

** Dolores Umbridge in ''Order of the Phoenix'' is definitely one. She has virtually no ability to actually teach Defense Against the Dark Arts (having only been put there by the Ministry as a "Ministry-approved" instructor) and is shown to be incompetent in an actual fight.

** Outside of Peggy, the Hills frequently run afoul of various "experts" who have more self-importance than any actual competence in their supposed field of expertise. It's often implied that these people keep ending up in Arlen [[ReassignedToAntarctica because they can't find work anywhere else]].

* Sakura Haruno is a practical {{Deconstruction}} of this trope from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. While she was one of the top students of the Academy (second only to Ino who had became the Kunoichi of the Year), she considered herself a lot stronger than the 'Dead-Last' Naruto Uzumaki since she equated 'knowing more about textbook things translates to real life'. During her first ''real'' mission in the Land of Waves, she realized Naruto was not only stronger than her but had pulled far ahead and during the Chunin Exams, she sacrificed the long hair she had grown meticulously so Sasuke would notice her in an attempt to save her teammates who were unconscious from the battle with Orochimaru. Sakura eventually becomes [[LadyOfWar Tsunade]]'s apprentice, TakesALevelInBadass in the first arc of Part II...and then has no truly memorable fights afterwards, and is TheMedic at best. However, during the last stage of the WarArc [[spoiler: she can keep up with KCM Naruto ''and'' a Complete Susano'o EMS Sasuke...until she gets OvershadowedByAwesome rather quickly, and ultimately has to rely on her two teammates yet again.]]

*** One strip in particular had Calvin ask what makes the wind blow, which his dad initially tells him is "Trees sneezing". When Calvin questions this, his dad admits that the truth is more complicated. Cut to Calvin and Hobbes walking with a heavy wind.
---->'''Calvin''': Boy, the trees sure are sneezing today.

** Scuttle the seagull from Disney's ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''. He claims that a fork is a thing for styling hair, a (smoking) pipe is a musical instrument, and also uses a telescope backwards. This gets {{lampshade|Hanging}}d later on in the film when he's trying to warn Sebastian about something. Sebastian is understandably skeptical, and Scuttle shouts "Have I ever been wrong? I mean, when it's ''important?''"
