* Misaki Yata from ''Anime/{{K}}'' has moments of this. Particularly, late in season 2, to [[spoiler: Saruhiko: "You're not a traitor! If you'd go this far for him, the Blue King was your King all along!" Saruhiko lampshades this when he's thinking about it just after Misaki leaves.]]

This would seem to derive from Cervantes' ''Literature/DonQuixote'', where the archetypically "simple" Sancho Panza occasionally produces statements of great wisdom (although in that case the main character, Don Quixote, often fails to notice or credit that wisdom). TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons players will lecture, in great detail, that [[TropesOfWisdom Wisdom]] and [[IntelligenceTropes Intelligence]] are not the same thing.

* While usually the CloudCuckoolander, Pinkie Pie sometimes has shades of this in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' (see above quote). This is actually a recurring element of her character, where her friends (and others around her) write off a lot of what she dies as simply being goofy and silly, only to be surprised when they see the stroke of genius in her madness (such as when she lead the Parasprites out of town by using a PiedPiperPloy on them that the rest of the cast didn't think to).

* In ''TwistedToyfareTheatre'', Mego Spider-Man seems to totally lack his signature super-powers, but also happens to be the only person in Megoville apart from maybe Dr. Doom who has a single lick of common sense.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'''s protagonist, Bartz, is described in the manual as a "simple wanderer." He has some BookDumb traits, but he also has a very uncomplicated and un-angsty outlook on saving the world. For instance, when Lenna's wind drake will die if not treated with a plant that only grows in a place so dangerous no one has ever returned from it, it sends the party into a brief despair, until Bartz breaks it with these words:
