* In the "Recall" trailer for ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', Reaper gives this expression when one of the {{Mooks}} he brought along to deal with Winston flies through the window of the room he's in and crashes into a table. The kicker? He's able to somehow do this expression while wearing ''a completely static skull-shaped mask!''

* In ''FanFic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K'' Kaworu bemoans his lack of competent henchmen. The trope is then deconstructed as he admits that he's not surrounded by ''idiots'', he's surrounded by the ''mediocre. SEELE and NERV recruited the best henchmen while the Earth Cradle was essentially a dumping ground for the leftovers. As a result he got people who are less skilled and less ''sane'' than canon Evangelion characters.

* In ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'', Gaea Worshipper's guild probably wouldn't have even existed if its members hdn't been a bunch of idiots. They want to assisst Gaea, who is playing in an enemy faction, because they are convinced that she's a DoubleAgent loyal to their own side. In reality, the events that made them come up with the DoubleAgent scenario are actually a NotMeThisTime FrameUp in which that their own faction's top guild; this isn't even kept as a secret at least in the comic version of the story. An episode of the webseries also hints that Gaea's ManipulativeBastard tendencies have an EveryoneKnewAlready status to most players and that the members of Gaea Worshipper's guild are the only ones acting as if whatever they see her do should be kept secret. To top things off, they are also quite incompetent as helpers.

** Another Ork with a brain, Kaptin Bluddflagg, takes a turn in ''Retribution'' when [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0vDQWMJNbE&feature=related he reasons out the location of his main target, and even his smartest minion reacts with a blank look]].

* This is one of Henri the cat's laments in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Q34z5dCmC4M Henri 2, Paw de Deux]]: "The white idiot writhes on his chair, begging for cheeseburgers... I'm surrounded by morons."

* Mildred from ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'' is the [[OnlySaneMan only sane character]] on the show & doesn't want to contribute into the insanity created by [[IdiotHero dimwitted protagonist]] Scaredy or [[AxCrazy crimially insane]] Nester.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'s'' [[NinjaMaid Sakuya Izayoi]] has to clean and guard the entire [[BiggerOnTheInside Scarlet Devil Mansion]] in spite of having a virtual army of hundreds of guards and maids single-handedly because the other {{meido}}s would do more harm than good, and the other guards, including ButtMonkey [[GateGuardian Hong Meiling]], tend to sleep instead of stand watch. Which is just as well, they're too incompetent to stop the KleptomaniacHero Marisa, anyway. Somewhat [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] by fanon in Meiling's case: even though she does take the usual siesta, [[BunnyEarsLawyer it doesn't interfere with her work in any way]]. She's actually quite good at dealing with riffraff and a very good martial artist... which isn't very useful when trying to stop PlotArmor-infused characters.
