* ''Series/TheDrewCarreyShow'' actually features the protagonists finding a ''literal smart ball'' called an "Epiphany Sphere." The sphere provides the holder to have a sudden realization and understanding of the world when they hold it. Drew and Oswald use it to realize why they have so many relationship problems in their love lives, making them realize how their insecurities cause most of their issues.

* ''Videogame/BatmanArkhamKnight'': The DumbMuscle working for the Riddler in the ''Arkham'' series pick it up for once when they [[MookChatter nonchalantly talk about]] how they got their supervillain boss to pay them online as opposed to in person. Considering [[BadBoss the employers in Gotham's underworld]], this was a pretty smart move.

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' ''Legacy of Evil'', Reidak figures what the whole Plan is, given only the beginning. While the Plan wasn't ''that'' awesome, it's frightening because Reidak usually needs simple plans to be explained four times. So the others speculate Reidak may have ''forgotten'' to act as an idiot, and rest of time he acts stupidly because he want to be underestimated.

* Done [[RuleOfFunny for laughs]] in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' when Him tells the girls he has the Professor in "the place where it's boiling and freezing at the same time". The girls rack their brains trying to figure it out only for [[CloudCuckooLander the Mayor]] [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment to appear out of nowhere]] and claim that converting the boiling and freezing points of water into geographical coordinates points to a Townsville street. "Or maybe [[FridgeLogic there's an ice cream truck on fire]]".

** [[FridgeBrilliance Which they both are.]] [[CaptainObvious Eddy's brother is the older brother of Eddy]], and Ed is Sarah's older brother. [[WildMassGuessing It's possible]] that Ed meant something along the lines of "I figured it out because I'm an older brother like Eddy's brother is", but since this is [[CloudCuckoolander Ed]], it's anybody's guess.

*From Fanfic/KillLaKillAU, Rei "the Drunk Secretary" Hou'oumaru is rarely noted to be sober, especially, and, at least, not long enough to state something coherently, however, in one fanfic, she took the time out to note how to point out that Soichiro's stolen cell phone could be tracked in order to find Ryuuko, along with pointing out that Houka knows how to track phones. Likewise, she's also the one to point out there wasn't something right with Ryuuko's hospital stay and how important it was to have her moved to a different one, subsequently, saving Ryuuko's life.

* In ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'', noshing on brains gives zombies - even lab-created ones like Unity - [[http://skin-horse.com/2012/doing-now-is/ a mental boost.]] Though it's not specified whether any brain does the trick, or if it's the specially vat-grown brains of St. Charlie that does it.

* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', the Flash is typically portrayed as a [[PluckyComicRelief total goofball]], but he has instances of outwitting other villains, one of whom was an alternate version of [[CrazyPrepared Batman]]. Even the regular Batman admits that the trick Flash uses is one he wouldn't have been able to predict either. He has another instance later in the same episode where he tries to convince the alternate KnightTemplar Superman that killing him is something he would never do because how the death of his Flash hurt him. That, unfortunately, merely prompts the other Superman to reply "I've done [[MoralEventHorizon a lot of things]] that I thought I'd never do these past two years. One more won't hurt."



** Both {{Fanon}} and WordOfGod are fond of pointing out that though the opening song claims "One is a genius, the other's insane", it doesn't actually specify which is which- Brain, after all, is a megalomaniac bent on world domination who constantly fails in his overly elaborate and frequently ridiculous schemes, so he is neither sane nor necessarily as smart as he believes himself to be; Pinky, meanwhile, is often the one who accidentally ruins the plan, but between his periodic holding of the Smart Ball and the possibility that Brain is the insane one, perhaps Pinky utilises ObfuscatingStupidity and his "accidents" are intentional, calculated screw-ups designed to save the world from a madman without losing his best and only friend.

** More importantly, all Air Force Colonels (other than "battlefield promotions") have to graduate from the Air War Colege, so they have the functional equivelant of a Master's Degree. They are decidedly not dumb. Jack just may look so compared to Daniel and Sam.
