Hilariously seen in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCm-ypxAXdg a fan video.]] To the tune of [[EarWorm Yakety Sax]], for added points. The absolute worst example has to be at Enies Lobby. He gets lost walking to a set of stairs ''20 feet in front of him.'' He blames Nami's bad directions. Chopper (pictured above, upper right) responded by offering to make Zoro ''[[TakeThat a cure for hopeless idiocy]]''. Post-time skip, when the crew was reuniting on Sabaody Archipelago, Zoro was ''first'' one there and is incredibly smug about it (though it was thanks to Perona's help). Though played straight back into position when he decides to go fishing and gets on a pirate ship as well. [[spoiler: He blames destiny and cuts the ship in half.]] He has, on the other hand, no trouble finding someone when ''he wants to get away from them'', like in a post-Enies Lobby filler episode when he's wearing an embarrassing shirt he doesn't want to be seen in, and ends up running into ''everyone in the crew'' when trying to avoid them. He's been called a ''fantasista'' (roughly, calling someone a "daydreamer" in a derogatory fashion) twice. By Nami in Enies Lobby, and by Perona in the Whereabouts stories. Not to mention the fact that in the G8 filler arc, the marines have set up an ambush at one end of a straight hallway and it doesn't have any offshoots from it. Zoro was leading the crew down that hallway towards the end where the marines set up the ambush, but they were being followed by a seperate bunch of marines. Somehow the marines that were chasing Zoro and the crew got to the ambush before the Straw Hats did. It is this event that proves Zoro can get lost in a straight hallway.

* Norbert Weiner, a famed mathematician and inventor of the field of Cybernetics, and one of the [[TropeCodifier better-known real-world examples]] of the AbsentMindedProfessor trope, would have so much trouble finding his way around the offices at MIT that he would use the 'right hand rule' for close mazes: he would put his right hand out, a book in the other, and walk along the rooms with his index finger running along the walls, and would keep walking until he found himself in his office. He was known for walking into, around, and out of offices and classrooms this way, never saying a word or taking his eyes off of the book.

** An UrbanLegend says that he once got lost on his way back home, and stopped to ask a young girl for directions, saying, "Young lady, would you know where the famous mathematician Norbert Weiner lives?" Her reply was, "This way, Daddy, Momma sent me to find you." However, his daughter has denied that this ever happened, saying that no matter how lost he got, he always recognized his children.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'''s [[TheLancer Lancer]], Roronoa Zoro, has this as the only thing keeping him from being a perfect {{Badass}} BloodKnight in canon, to the point of getting lost in a straight line. But it’s hammered home just how hopeless he is in Chapter 3 of the PeggySue Fan Fiction ''Fanfic/SecondWind'', when ''[[IdiotHero Luffy]]'' has to explain to him the fault in his logic…and he still doesn’t get it.
