* Captain Parmenter in ''FTroop'', who pratfalls on a regular basis. As it did for Maxwell Smart, it also came in handy on occasion (particularly when dealing with a double).

* The KindheartedSimpleton T37 in Ranzar's ''Tanktoons'' is an example of this, being quite clumsy for a light tank and often doing things that annoy, inconvenience, or injure the much more capable but eternally long-suffering Hellcat. In one notable instance, he managed to parachute ''upside down''. Onto Hellcat. He never means ill, though, and always does his best to make it up to Hellcat afterwards.

Fans also like T37 for his exuberance and occasional incompetence.

* VideoGame/SeekAndDestroy2002: An interesting [[SentientVehicle vehicular example]] is Jevons, a tank from Seek and Destroy 2002, aka Combat Choro Q. When exited, (usually by the delivery of big news) he has a bad habit of forgetting to hit his brakes and crashing off screen. Also doubles as the game's Woobie, since his crashes usually end up with him getting injured.

Fortunately, the damage is rarely very serious, tending towards more AmusingInjuries with him puttering back on-screen sporting a little bandage.

* {{Goofy}} is well known for being one of the earliest animated klutzes. It's the trait that has characterised him relentlessly wherever he appears.

* Shurelia from ''ArTonelico'' starts off as a somewhat cold LadyofWar, but after you actually get her into your party and put her into a costume other than the Linker suit, it becomes apparent that she's incredibly clumsy. She will actually fall over after casting spells, and [[NoSenseOfDirection gets lost repeatedly in the course of the game]]. In spite of all of this, she's probably the smartest character in the game. [[spoiler:Jacqli]] from the second game will also almost fall over while casting spells.

* [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Clark Kent]] is often written as this, particularly in ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman''. His clumsiness is entirely affected, of course, because it makes him look incompetent and therefore not Superman, and it allows him to subtly use his powers while still disguised (for instance, stumbling into someone to push them out of the way of a falling object).

* In ''VideoGame/TheSims3'' and ''VideoGame/TheSims4'', it's one of the many personality traits. A clumsy Sim will occasionally trip when walking (and sometimes even when standing idly), if on a treadmill, they're more likely to fall off, items they use are more likely to break, and if a clumsy Sim proposes, they'll drop the ring.
