* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'': "You won't get away Man-Ray; not while we have the Orb of Confusion!" Which, by the way, causes a wave of confusion that ''starts'' with the person who turned it on, making it a very ''literal'' IdiotBall.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Dogstar}}'': In "Mensamania", Fenwick creates a stupidity virus which Bob santino unleashes on Mensa, the most intelligent planet in the galaxy as a test run. If it works there, he intends to use it on Earth to make the population stupid enough to buy his latest product.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'', Beast Boy becomes sick of being the team's idiot, so he steals Raven's spellbook to make himself smarter with magic. When he screws that up, he realizes that to have a similar effect, he can just make everyone else on his team dumber than he is. He succeeds at that, but becomes frustrated with having to take care of four people who are bordering on TooDumbToLive. He decides to fix the dynamic... by making himself even dumber than his brain-drained teammates.

* In ''SuperMarioBros'' #5 (from ValiantComics), King Koopa's (full name "Bowser Koopa") science team comes up with "the Stoopid Bomb." The King of the Mushroom Kingdom, being an idiot, is unaffected, but everyone else becomes foolish, including King Koopa's own troops, as the bombs are on a hair trigger and keep getting dropped. There are also antidote Smart Bombs, but they are all used on one Shyguy, who becomes a genius and temporarily wrests control from Koopa. Too bad he's now the OnlySaneMan.

* 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:
