* [[Music/{{Nile}} George Kollias]], despite being a world-famous drummer who is renowned for his extreme technical ability, has an apparently uncanny knack for spilling cups of coffee. Karl Sanders specifically noted this in the liner notes to ''What Should Not Be Unearthed'', and he apparently does it with such regularity that the band no longer allows him to bring coffee on the bus because of the likelihood that it will become one with the carpet.

Added DiffLines:

* Arthur in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' is ''infamously'' unlucky, this trope being a big reason. His roster descriptions in both English and Japanese pertain to his tendency to trip and fall over for no reason, and it comes up several times in his Supports.

*** The title goes to fan-favorite Derpy, who despite only having a few lines so far in a single episode, has been seen dropping furniture on people, accidentally pulling the plug out of an apple-bobbing tub, accidentally smashing holes in the roof of a building she was getting ready for a party, and creating a hole in the floor by ''sitting down too hard''.

** In one of the DVD audio commentaries, the writers mention this trait was given to Amy to see if such slapstick humor could be funny if inflicted on a cute female character. (As opposed to ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', where Bart and Homer were the primary focurs of physical gags.)
* Oopsey from ''[[CareBears Adventures in Care-a-Lot]]''.

There are varying degrees of klutziness, of course. Some characters are fairly capable with a notable tendency to trip, drop things, forget important tasks, or [[Series/MythBusters just plain hurt themselves with their reckless use of explosives]], while others can effectively be a force of raw chaos, inducing DeusExMachina levels of disaster that can foil even the best-laid {{plan}}.

{{plan}}. When their klutz-aura is potent enough to leave smoking wreckage and screaming victims in their usually oblivious wake, they ascend to LethalKlutz status.

* The titular character of ''Film/EddieTheEagle'' is extremely accident prone managing to knock over an entire ski team and fall down a 70m ski jump slope. Notably, the real life Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards was nicknamed Mr. Magoo by the press for his clumsiness.

* As a male example, Mario's brother Luigi tends to display this feature, especially in the [=RPGs=] and to some degree in the ''SuperSmashBros'' series which actually has this present in gameplay: one of his special moves has a chance of misfiring and another ends with him turning upside down in midair and landing on his head (Mario's version of the attack lands him on his feet).

* [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Fethry Duck]] is an incredible example, capable of causing immense damage through it. [[GenreSavvy He also knows he's this, and has taken advantage by working as a demolition worker]] or, in one memorable occasion, ''having himself hired by the villains of the story to sabotage them''.
