* 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:

* Darwin of ''TheAmazingWorldOfGumball''. Though still very dippy, he sometimes shows more awareness and concern of the dumb antics they get caught into. On rarer occasions Gumball himself can apply.

* Nug of the Urpney squad in ''TheDreamstone''. He's rather vacuous, but he usually can point out the simplest (and often correct) solution to problems, which Blob [[GladIThoughtOfIt usually steals credit for]]. He also has a [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant slightly more unnerving savviness for potential morbid fates they can suffer]].

See also: AchievementsInIgnorance, TooDumbToFool, WhoopiEpiphanySpeech, InfallibleBabble, HanlonsRazor. Contrast DitzyGenius, which is in many ways the diametric opposite of this trope, and SeeminglyProfoundFool, in which other characters detect this falsely.

* Obelix in ''{{Asterix}}''. He's a bit socially awkward and only seems to have a vague idea what's going on most of the time, but because of this is able to see contradictions and strangeness in cultural behaviour everyone else sees as being normal. His CatchPhrase - "these Romans are crazy" - represents this about half of the time (the other half of the time, he is just mistaken about what the Romans are thinking).
