%%** Edmund Blackadder in the first season, but in series 2 he became the DeadpanSnarker he is known as in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th seasons. Baldrick also fits this to some extent as well as being a well-loved BumblingSidekick.

* ''Series/Blackadder'': Just about every character who isn't Blackadder or Darling is ditz on some level, but special mention goes towards Baldrick, who has been a ditz in nearly all of his incarnations.

* Kousaka from ''Manga/{{Genshiken}}'' isn't ''quite'' as dimwitted as some; his ditz qualifications comes mostly from his utter lack of a filter between his thoughts and his mouth.
* ''Manga/ElfenLied'':
** {{Deconstruct|ion}}ed by Director Kurama's ditzy secretary, Kisaragi, is decapitated by Lucy in the first 7 minutes of the show because she's TooDumbToLive. This is made better in the German dub, where she tells her colleagues "[[FunnyAneurysmMoment I just don't lose my head]]." moments before.
** Anna (after she returned to normal) is another example, being unable to solve basic mathematical problems.

* [[MoeAnthropomorphism Italy]] from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'': the name of the series
is made better even a portmanteau of the Japanese words for "hopeless" and "Italy". Italy is such a DistressedDude that it's a wonder he survived until Germany formed an alliance with him. One notable example is when Germany tries to teach him how to throw a grenade. Italy throws the pin, leaving the grenade ''clenched in his mouth''. He then just sits there blankly, while Germany screams at him to throw the grenade before they both get blown up. The one time Italy manages to plant a grenade correctly he stands there cheering... as a Russian tank comes up behind him.

'lovable/obnoxious oaf' kind.



* Akihisa Yoshi from ''LightNovel/BakaNoTest'' is by far the stupidest person in the school. He divides pot noodle in half contiually thinking that that way he can get infinite meals out of one serving. He even concludes that discovering this makes him a genius. Most geniuses don't spend their food money on porn in the first place. He explains that this why he is eating 1/67th of a pot noodle. Nobody is even surprised that he gets the math wrong there. When Hazuki Shimada turns up and calls asks for the big idiot Akihisa Yuuji Sakamoto says he's surprised that everyone in Japan knows of his stupidity. Akihisa insists it's not all of Japan, just the local area.
* Rino Rando from ''Anime/BestStudentCouncil''. Most of the smarts seem to have been given to her snarky hand puppet Pucchan.
* Mahiro Muto from ''Manga/BusouRenkin'', after spending time early on as a distressed damsel.
* ''Manga/CastleTownDandelion'':
** Hikari is the [[GenkiGirl most energetic]] among the siblings, but she seems extremely clueless about the consequences of her actions.
** While Akane's most important characteristics are JusticeWillPrevail and ShrinkingViolet, as the story goes on it's quite clear that despite her own self-consciousness, she's utterly clueless of what's happening around her--like whether she's wearing anything on her lower body (Chapter 12/Episode 4A), or that [[PaperThinDisguise everyone knows she is Scarlet Bloom]] (Chapter 21/Episode 9A).

Ten, I guess, because I have ''ten fingers!'' But I'm not in a counting mood, so now [[AxeCrazy I'll kill you painfully!]]" She never lapses into a SlasherSmile but remains cheerful and perky throughout.

** Naga the Serpent, Lina's ([[UnknownRival self-proclaimed]]) greatest rival, gets into a lot of trouble with her lack of sense. In Naga's defense, WordOfGod implies she is mentally traumatized, so it's less that she's stupid and more that she's genuinely mentally unwell. Although it's probably fair to say she wasn't sensible to begin with, given the strong hints she's related to Amelia and Prince Philionel, who are... definitely flaky.

* Akihisa Yoshi from ''LightNovel/BakaNoTest'' is by far the stupidest person in the school. He divides pot noodle in half contiually thinking that that way he can get infinite meals out of one serving. He even concludes that discovering this makes him a genius. Most geniuses don't spend their food money on porn in the first place. He explains that this why he is eating 1/67th of a pot noodle. Nobody is even surprised that he gets the math wrong there. When Hazuki Shimada turns up and calls asks for the big idiot Akihisa Yuuji Sakamoto says he's surprised that everyone in Japan knows of his stupidity. Akihisa insists it's not all of Japan, just the local area.
* ''Manga/CastleTownDandelion'':
** Hikari is the [[GenkiGirl most energetic]] among the siblings, but she seems extremely clueless about the consequences of her actions.
** While Akane's most important characteristics are JusticeWillPrevail and ShrinkingViolet, as the story goes on it's quite clear that despite her own self-consciousness, she's utterly clueless of what's happening around her--like whether she's wearing anything on her lower body (Chapter 12/Episode 4A), or that [[PaperThinDisguise everyone knows she is Scarlet Bloom]] (Chapter 21/Episode 9A).
* Homura Hinooka from ''LightNovel/FireGirl'' is a downplayed example. Her ditziness mostly stems from her status as being BookDumb and being fairly incompetent in knowledge regarding "complicated" basics in life (she doesn't even know how to use the ''internet'' for starters) but she is actually fairly self-aware and perceptive otherwise.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** For years, Ralph Wiggum from was considered [[ExaggeratedTrope such an extreme example]] that this entire trope was once named after him.
** [[BumblingDad Homer Simpson]] (how his idiocy hasn't [[SnapBack permanently]] got him fired from the Power Plant is a mystery), [[GenerationXerox Ralph's father Clancy Wiggum]] ([[PoliceAreUseless who is even Chief of Police and proves to be completely incompetent.]]), and [[TheAlcoholic Barney Gumble]], who often does stupid things [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy while drunk]].
%%* Officer Barbrady from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''.
* Patrick Star and SpongeBob from ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''. More famously the former.
** Patrick is speculated by some fans as ObfuscatingStupidity, because of occaisonal moments of SesquipedalianLoquaciousness, as well as one time where he is percieved to have admitted he's not dumb.
--->''"[=SpongeBob=], you can't always expect my usual brand of stupidity. Keep you on your toes."''
--->--- '''Patrick Star, hinting at his possible, but not certain ObfuscatingStupidity.'''
** [=SpongeBob=] used to subvert this trope because he was originally naive and loopy. He now plays it straight due to {{Flanderization}}.
%%* Kyle, Ranger Stu, Oscar and Leon from ''WesternAnimation/SquirrelBoy''.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake'': Lime Chiffon. Her laugh alone should count along with her parrot being the smart one of the pair.
%%* Lok, Pupununu Tribe, Zariah, Slog, Blod and Bleeta from ''WesternAnimation/TakAndThePowerOfJuju''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Starfire can act spacey and clueless because she's from another planet and she doesn't have much knowledge about the Earth. When the titans go to Tamaran, she is not at all ditzy and it is her teammates that have the blank "what's going on" looks.
* 1980s version of ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' Bebop and Rocksteady are a pair of incompetent minions. No wonder Shredder never wins.
* Lilly from TimothyGoesToSchool is prone to forgetting things and very clumsy. But she's a really sweet student and gets along very well with her friends in school.
* From ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'':
** [[TheBrainlessBeauty Lindsay]]. Despite being one of the dumbest contestants with little skill or clue as to what she's doing, she still remains one of the best contestants who fortune favors. She eliminates herself in ''Action'' and in ''All Stars'', and has accidentally voted for herself more than anyone else.
*** His boyfriend Tyler isn't very bright, but not to the same extent as her.
** Owen. He's a few sandwiches short of a picnic most of the time.
** Katie and Sadie. Downplayed with Katie, she's not the brightest on the team, but she's scarcely seen doing anything excessively stupid. Sadie is implied to be smarter than Katie; however, she is still fairly airheaded.
** Sugar in "Pakitew". She reasons that Leonard is smart, simply because she can't understand half of what he says.
%%*
The title characters ''WetsernAnimation/UncleGrandpa'' is this.this.
%%* Cal of ''WesternAnimation/{{Undergrads}}''.
* The Little King, at least in the Creator/VanBeurenStudios cartoons based off the newspaper comic, has shades of this. While he's not really incompetent, he acts very eccentric and childish for someone in his position.
%%* Lor [=McQuarrie=] from ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders''.
%%* Sandra from ''WesternAnimation/WillAndDewitt''.
%%* WesternAnimation/YakkityYak.
