* ''{{Film/FantasticBeastsAndWheretoFindThem}}'': Working class {{Muggle}} Jacob Kowalski doesn't question or argue much when he stumbles into the Wizarding world and all the odd stuff he encounters, bluntly telling Newt ''"I ain't got the brains to make this up!"''

* In ''Fanfic/ChristianGreyVsPepperPotts'', this is essential the entire reason ''[[Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey Christian]] is able to evade the Avengers and other superheroes for as long as he does. They're so used to using advanced tactics to track down evil geniuses and cunning villains that they're not at all prepared for an idiotic spoiled brat.

** It Should be noted that of the 3 Protagonists, for some odd reason Goofy is portrayed as the smartest, whether or not this was intentional is unknown, but Goofy seems to be both the Voice of Reason of the group and the one who notices when things are amiss. Given how he was in various other media, this makes his actions in the Kingdom Hearts games rather jarring.

* During the "Brainwashed" multi-parter near the end of ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'', the mice are captured and, appropriately enough, brainwashed. Or, at least, Brain is. Pinky is entirely unaffected due to his low intelligence. Later, as Brain starts to return to normal, he manages to LogicBomb the brainwashing computer by introducing it to the concept of "[[VerbalTic Narf]]", which Pinky cannot help but "define" when the computer derides it as a non-word.

* In AvramDavidson's "The King Across the Mountains", the fugitive Crown Princeling of Scythia-Pannonia-Transbalkania tries to cover his identify with "diplomatic immunity" based on a seal filched from the Delegate of the Grand Mogul. This backfires with the rural constables of the Hyperthracian Hills, who are not letting any Mongols get past them.

* In ''TheGuild'', Mr. Wiggly is admitted into the Knights of Good only because they need one more player and he is [[DungeonmastersGirlfriend Clara's husband]]. He manages to beat a powerful member of a rival group only because he does things so stupid that the enemy didn't think to defend against them. As he says "Sheer idiocy is my gaming specialty."

** In "The Joy of Sect", Homer resists the most powerful persuasion techniques of the Movementarian cult thanks to his negligible IQ and [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny attention span]]. [[SubvertedTrope Until they find a technique that's as stupid as he is]]: change the lyrics to the 1960's ''Series/{{Batman}}'' score from "Batman" to "Leader".

* In an episode of ''TheWeekenders'', dimwitted Bluke figures out the answers to the clues for the scavenger hunt because he doesn't bother to think they're cryptic and complicated, as the main cast assumes... and nets them second place and a pizza -- which he similarly correctly realizes is a better prize than the first-place pool table, since the game was played by five-person teams, and you can't "split" a pool table.

* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'': Though the above quote from "Jack-Wabbit and the Beanstalk" isn't an example, the short does have an instance where BugsBunny tricks the Giant into a duel at ten paces, counting on the latter's giant steps to take him far away. Instead, the Giant's steps take him ''all the way around the cloud they're on'', putting Bugs right back where he started.

* This trope is why children under 7 have a higher survival rate if lost than children 7-9. They don't know how much trouble they're in, so they don't make as many dumb mistakes and will usually just settle down somewhere and save their energy. Older children will know they're in danger and panic, using up valuable energy as they try to find their way out and keep moving so rescuers can't find them.
