** Leon was also dumb in that, while he was stripped of his title and weapons, he still very likely could have taken one as he left, but didn't since as he was no longer a knight, they were not his to use. While those weapons would have been far less effective than the whip ended up being, anything would have certainly been better than running in enmpy-handed.

* In ''SuikodenIV'', the hero Lazlo is accused [[spoiler: of murdering his superior officer]]. The only evidence of Lazlo committing the crime was an extremely shady testimony by his envious, immature, and (former) best friend Snowe. Nevertheless, Lazlo's fellow officers immediately believe in his guilt and sentence him to exile ''without giving him a trial''.

* Numbuh 86 acts like this in ''spades'' in the ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' episode "Operation: E.N.D.", believing that every member of Sector V are scheduled to be decomissioned due to computer-issued orders, even though she knew from ''personal'' experience that they are not the right age. (She and Numbuh One went to kindergarten together.) Numbuh 86's incompetence is a big part of her character, sadly...

* The ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug''/''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/{{Ultrasonic}} puts Judy Hopps in this role, when she refuses to give let Ladybug destroy an akumatised microphone and insists on keeping it as evidence. While she may not have any experience of situations like [[OutsideContextProblem akumas]], it's clear that she knows Ladybug does, and her refusal to cooperate costs Zootopia dearly after the butterfly escapes.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'', Don King of Transylvito becomes Lawful Stupid after a devastating defeat in a battle that should have been a sure thing. Formerly cunning and only minorly interested in the formalities of rank and nobility, he becomes convinced that the Titans (gods) are punishing him for not taking those concepts more seriously. In an attempt to atone for his apparent sins, he drains his treasury and neglects his kingdom's immediate needs in order to reestablish and prop up another Royal side.

* ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'': DoubleSubverted with Judge Tunon: He is dedicated to laying out the laws of Overlord Kyros to the exact letter, no matter how extreme or tormenting her edicts get. Subverted because he is old and smart enough to know that Kyros doesn't really give a shit about how things play out as long as they play out in her favor, so he can interpret the law any damn way he wants given that it is [[ExactWords fulfilled to the letter]], even if it gets Tunon a few extra supplies or torture victims. Double Subverted if the player character can successfully [[spoiler:convince Tunon that despite their sheer rebellion against Kyros, they have fulfilled both the letter AND the ''spirit'' of the law in their own way, which forces Tunon to accept them as the better Overlord ''even'' if you are a bloodthirsty anarchist or a rebel who intends to erect an empire that will spit in the face of everything Overlord Kyros intends.

** Madeline Goodlaw, the paladin from ''RustyAndCo'', is very very stupid and very very lawful. She actually objects to the idea of taking even a ''single hour'' to plan on how to save Rusty, Mimic, and Cube.
