* 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.

* [[spoiler: Donquixote "Corazon" Rocinante]], the brother of [[PsychopathicManchild Donquixote Doflamingo]], from ''Manga/OnePiece''. He is shown ''setting himself on fire while trying to light a cigarette'', tripping over nothing, or, in one instance, [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs setting himself on fire while tripping over nothing]].

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* [[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).

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* As a male example, Mario's brother Luigi tends to display this feature, especially in the [=RPGs=] and to some degree in the ''VideoGame/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).
** One of Lucas's taunts has him tripping backwards.

* Nancy in ''TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan''. A psychic even pointed this out once while attempting to read the bumps on her head, most of which were obtained through Nancy's own klutziness. In another episode, Mr. Chan instinctively calls out to Nancy when he hears someone crashing into a lamp. (It was Stanley, who's also rather clumsy himself.)
