* 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''.

* An episode of ''SpongeBobSquarePants'' featured [=SpongeBob=]'s cousin, Stanley, who was mailed to [=SpongeBob=]'s house when his father got fed up with him. Most of what he touches ''explodes in a mushroom cloud''.

* A repeatedly lampshaded trait of Eto "Careless Hachibe" Hachibe from ''IonoTheFanatics''. She desperately tried to hide it using her side, but alas, clumsiness is just one of those things that are really to control.

* Cal-Vina in ''[[AgarestSenkiZero Agarest: Generations of War Zero]]'' is so clumsy that Routier specifically - and very seriously - asks Eugene to make sure he never holds a knife. As she says:

This is a character that everyone knows and loves. So long as they aren't involved in ''their'' plans, anyway. '''The Klutz''' bumbles and fumbles at seemingly anything they do, but they are kept around for one reason or another. The unstated reason is that they make a great PluckyComicRelief, and serve as a humanizing accessory to a hero if he is TheStoic.

* Male example: Archie from ''ArchieComics''. ** When Jughead was invited to an Andrews family reunion, he notices that the clumsiness is a trait that is shared among Archie's ''entire family''. * Dagwood Bumstead from the ''ComicStrip/{{Blondie}}'' comic strip is known for this trait. His boss once gave him a check because he did ''not'' mess up things all day. Cue him messing up this immediately. * Awkwardman from the ''Inferior Five''. He's been known to bump his head on panel borders and knock over ''the laws of perspective'' when he falls. That's right, this man is so clumsy that the conventions of the medium and physics both topple before his fumbling. * Wildcard from ''GIJoe'' literally accidentally breaks everything he touches without fail. Sooner or later, it ''will'' happen.

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Clumsy Carp from the comic ''{{BC}}''. In one strip, Peter and Thor are watching Clumsy approach from far away, across a flat plain that's totally featureless... except for one small rock, which he duly trips over. Peter turns to Thor and says "Pay up." ** Well, almost exactly. He's not a carp. ** He's also charged five times the standard admission to an antiques show in one strip. ** He has tripped over beaches. ''Beaches''.

* ''ThePinkPanther'': Inspector Clouseau. * Cadet (later Officer) Fackler in the ''PoliceAcademy'' films. Oddly, most of his mishaps inflict injury on people other than himself.

* At the end of IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade, Elsa Schneider turns into a major klutz at the worst possible time. After crossing a forbidden boundary with the Holy Grail, she loses her balance due to an earthquake and she drops the grail. She sprints after it but in her haste, she clumsily trips and knocks the grail into a crevice. This sets up a TakeMyHand moment where she tries to reach it while holding onto Indiana. Her hand comes up inches short and she falls to her death. Had she been less reckless, she might’ve recovered the grail before it fell into the chasm in the first place.

* Extremely obscure ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' example: Derider Fanshaen, an NPC of the Greyhawk setting, introduced in the 1980s. Painfully clumsy to the point that she had to be let off of certain duties when training for the priesthood because she destroyed too many fragile objects, but at the same time not someone to mess with: she's one of the most powerful clerics in the city of Greyhawk, so she ''can'' smite you to oblivion if you threaten the city. Also one of the ruling oligarchs of Greyhawk, meaning she's politically as well as magically powerful. And still one of the nicest people around. It's taken to the point where her Dexterity stat is listed at 4, and a description of her quarters in another supplement entirely still emphasized that all the potion containers in her treasure inventory were made of metal, not breakable glass or ceramic.

** Depending on character build, Dexterity is a not-uncommon DumpStat for clerics in D&D. Almost every other stat is useful - Wisdom is important for spellcasting, Strength for when they join the fighter in melee, Intelligence for more skills/proficiencies, Constitution to help tank heavy blows as a front-liner... Even Charisma can be useful, depending on edition. Combined with few skills that use Dexterity, being TheMedic, and a habit of wearing heavy armor, it's almost safe to let Dex suck when everything else demands attention too.

*** GentleGiant Troubleshoes Clyde supplants even Derpy - his cutie mark, an upside-down horseshoe, means that his ''special talent'' is klutziness. Unfortunately, being an absolutely ''massive'' stallion, he has caused quite some damage, to the point of being considered a wanted outlaw in Appleloosa and environs. [[spoiler:With the aid of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, he learns to channel his klutziness as a rodeo clown.]]
