"Yes." I nodded. "But she's not nearly as accident prone as she's supposed to be. I'll grant you [[ContinuityNod she fell down an ambull tunnel once]], and there was [[UrineTrouble that incident with the frag grenade and the latrine trench]], but things [[CursedWithAwesome tend to work out for her]]. The orks on Kastafore was as surprised as she was when [[NoOSHACompliance the floor in the factory collapsed]], and we'd have walked into right into that [[NoodleIncident hrud ambush on Skweki if she hadn't triggered the mine by chucking an empty food tin away]]..." I trailed off, finally listening to what I was saying. "You know how troopers tend to exaggerate these things," I finished lamely.

A broader supertrope covering those characters that cannot be fit into the narrower CuteClumsyGirl[=/=]{{Dojikko}}, which combines with MsFanservice, TheDitz, and TheWoobie specifically to transform the character into a {{Moe}} factory. Klutziness may be the bunny ears on the BunnyEarsLawyer, where their clumsiness is forgiven when they possess valuable knowledge or work skills where their utter lack of grace are not such an impediment. May occasionally transform into TheMillstone or SpannerInTheWorks, depending on how well the heroes can point the klutz at their enemy's plans, and away from their own. If the klutz is routinely TheMillstone, the audience may be compelled to yell "JustEatGilligan!"

* In the [[ComicBook/ArchieComics2015 2015 Archie reboot]], it arguably goes past just "clumsiness" and into superhumanly bad luck. Case in point, he [[EpicFail somehow manages]] [[https://twitter.com/ArchieComics/status/695846390170148865 to set ice cream on fire]].

* Many characters from the CarmenSandiego games:
** The photographers in the 1995 Carmen Sandiego: Junior Detective Edition. It's no wonder they can never get a full photo of the villain and have to send bits and pieces at a time.
** The ICK brothers from Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? and Where in the U.S.A. is Carmen Sandiego?, both from 1996. They're pretty much your typical BumblingJanitors, complete with frogs in their overalls and {{Garden Hose Squirt Surprise}}s.

* Tonks from the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books. She nearly failed her Auror's exams because of her poor stealth skills, and passed only because of her handy VoluntaryShapeshifting abilities.

* 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.
