* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Percy Weasley "wouldn't recognize a joke if it danced naked in front of him wearing Dobby's tea cozy." He does have a bit of a harshly sarcastic moment in ''Deathly Hallows,'' though, which is remarked upon with astonishment by his siblings [[spoiler:one of whom is tragically killed seconds later]].

Added DiffLines:

* Chaos from ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty''. Tragic example. While seeking help, she saw a comedy scene where the protagonist says he doesn't want any angeloid. That has... consequences.

* A common misconception of AynRand is that she had no comprehension of humor, despite [[DeadpanSnarker a talent for devastatingly on-target satire]]. She was sometimes LateToThePunchline, perhaps as a result of early trauma, and part of it could have been that she was a native Russian-speaker operating in an English-speaking environment; plays on words and things like that may have just sailed right past her. She was prone to quips however and sometimes demonstrated a biting sardonic wit. For instance, whilst being pestered by a fly on a talk show, she commented "[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Perhaps it's protesting]]."

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/CaptainUnderpantsTheFirstEpicMovie'', Melvin is unable to laugh or understand anything humorous. Professor Poopypants soon discovers that it's because Melvin completely lacks the (made-up) part of the brain that contains the sense of humor. Initially, the character trait is used to make Melvin a {{foil}} to pranksters George and Harold. [[spoiler:Poopypants then uses Melvin's unique physiology as a basis for a device that removes other people's senses of humor, thus inflicting this trope on everyone who crosses his path.]]

* Resident synthetic intelligences EDI and Legion from ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. Though EDI [[CannotConveySarcasm certainly tries.]]
** By the third game, she's now a full on aversion of the trope, and is, for the most part, able to keep up with [[DeadpanSnarker Joker]], although her taste in humor leans more towards messing with people's heads.

** Another artificial intelligence, SAM, in ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', also struggles with humor, mostly limited to telling very stale jokes that it looked up on the Extranet somewhere ("Why don't Thresher Maws eat clowns? Because they taste funny."). Its creator ordered it to "work on them". SAM does a bit better with sarcastic humor, though whether its doing that on purpose or just making deadpan comments that sound funny is unclear.

* In ''Film/HotFuzz'' Nicholas Angel's devotion to his job above everything else has made him a first-class police officer. It's also rendered him a completely humourless, pedantic and uptight prick.

* In ''Film/HotFuzz'' Nicholas Angel's devotion to his job above everything else has made him a first-class police officer. It's also rendered him a completely humourless, pedantic and uptight prick. When the movie starts he has just been dumped and ReassignedToAntarctica, neither of which does anything to improve his personality (which, while not entirely humorless, was already pretty damned abrasive).

* From MercedesLackey's ''Literature/{{SERRAted Edge}}'' novels, Unseleighe psychics have absolutely No Sense of Humor, along with little comprehension of allegory and the imaginations of bricks. In one novel, they were driven insane trying to comprehend the lyrics of Music/TheyMightBeGiants.

* TheMarxBrothers: Groucho Marx always claimed that actress Margaret Dumont, who was always the ButtMonkey of his insults, never seemed to understand his jokes. Recent research has found out that this was simply an urban legend.

* Zane in ''Franchise/{{Ninjago}}'' is noted at trying to understand humor but seems to fail. The reason for this is that he is a RidiculouslyHumanRobot that normally has all of his emotion switched off, including humor.
