* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* Various drugs (legal and otherwise), can cause this.
** Many pharmaceutical drugs have temporary side effects that cause dizziness, lethargy, and inability to focus.
** Most recreational drugs have a much more pronounced version of this effect, especially when the intended effect is to produce some kind of euphoric state. [[DrugsAreBad Of course it can also be because it's causing brain damage]].

* In ''SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'', [[spoiler:Danette appears to be TheDitz for much of the game, but it turns out that the block on her memories is to blame. When it's finally removed, she's only a little bit ditzy.]]

* ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods'': The Organization put a chemical in Jules's blonde hair dye that makes her [[DumbBlonde behave more stupid and slutty]] than she really is, as they force the various occupants of the cabin to fill their typical SlasherMovie roles. Jules is actually pretty intelligent, being pre-med.

* The novel ''BimbosOfTheDeathSun'' is centered around the author of a [[ShowWithinAShow novel within a novel]] with the same name, whose basic premise involves solar radiation messing up computers; as a side effect, it also make women world-wide lose intelligence. Despite what it sounds like, he wasn't doing it to [[AuthorTract make any kind of social point or be chauvinistic]] -- the idea was simply based off of the fact that some diseases are linked to sex.
