* The ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Beer Bad." Buffy drinks cursed beer which turns her into a cavewoman. (Although she still looks the same, the guys who drink the beer literally look like cavemen. Granted, Xander expressly cut her off before the rest) Ends with a SpoofAesop:

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle'' featured "goof gas". Bullwinkle was too stupid to be affected by it. Boris remarked something like, "Goof gas affects the brain. No brain, no effect."
** Pretty much the exact same thing, with different {{phlebotinum}}, happened in TheMovie.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Homer Simpson's stupidity isn't natural: a crayon lodged in his brain takes 50 points away from his previously average IQ.
** This is worsened by the fact that the nuclear power plant where he works doesn't use proper shielding. All the slapstick violence in the form of blows to the head certainly can't help, either. WordOfGod is that he loses 5 IQ points a season from brain damage, and at this point he's basically "a dog that can talk."

* The end of the PresidentEvil arc in the {{DCU}} explained ComicBook/LexLuthor's blaming {{Superman}} for a kryptonite meteor heading for Earth, putting on PoweredArmor, and ranting madly on national TV, by him having injected himself with a mind-altering mixture of Bane's Venom formula and liquid kryptonite. Why he decided he needed some pretty low level SuperStrength despite being the President of the United States is definitely PlotInducedStupidity though. Damn you Loeb.

* One of the Vahki models in ''{{Bionicle}}'' had the ability to temporarily overwrite a Matoran's conciousness and turn them into a mindless "shambler" incapable of rational thought.
** It also occured to Vezok when he got a LiteralSplitPersonality - the original Vezok lost a few IQ points because the part split off got his ability to think tactically.

* Maul of the comic book ''WildCATS'' has size-changing powers that makes his intelligence inversely proportional. Not only does growing make him dumber, he later discovers he can shrink to get smarter, although this proves exhausting.
