* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8315978/1/Escape Escape]]'' shows that the hospital staff looking after Murdock know full well his friends are breaking him out each time they do so. They simply allow it because Murdock's not a danger to others and being with his friends improves his moods. Of course, there's also the betting pool they have going on how he'll be broken out each time.

* A few fanfic authors like to play with the idea that Richard Moore is aware of what Conan is doing, or faking being asleep. Has a basis in the simple fact that being injected countless times with the same sleeping drug will eventually result in the body resisting it.

** Jean-Paul generally maintains a harmless CampGay demeanour. He's also capable of almost absently pulling a SherlockScan on someone he barely knows and when he gets angry, he gets cold, calm and all the GratuitousFrench disappears.

* ''Matters of Faith'' has [[EmotionlessGirl Rei]] [[TeenGenius doing]] '''[[ReluctantMadScientist SCIENCE]]''' [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation without anyone knowing]]. When one of Shinji's innocent comments back her against a wall in a conversation, [[WrongGenreSavvy she suspects him of doing this]] (with the justification that it's probably [[InTheBlood Gendo's genes]] in play).

ruled Buenos Aires into a trap.
* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': Shinji and Asuka pretend they are dumb, oblivious and ignorant to everything that is happening around them so Gendo does not suspect they are time travelers are plotting to ruin his and Seele's plans.
* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Shinji pretended he was dumber and more ignorant than he was so nobody figured out what he is -a master manipulator with psychich powers- or what he really knows. Later Rei and Asuka make the same thing, advised by him.

* In ''FanFic/ATeachersGlory'' Sakura and Naruto create a variation of the Sexy Jutsu that ''weaponizes'' this. The first time Naruto uses it, Sasuke thinks 'the person who would create something this stupid is so stupid that, if I left them here in this clearing they've been a hundred times before, they'd never find their way home.'

* In ''FanFic/OriginStory'', several members of ComicBook/TheAvengers finally notice that the entire point of [[SpiderMan Spider-Man's]] generally immature attitude is to make people underestimate him. After he makes one particularly insightful observation about the situation, he reminds ComicBook/TheAvengers (who are all sitting there staring at him in stunned surprise) that he has two Master's degrees and is close to earning his [=PhD=].

* Cordelia in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9663877/1/And-Another-Thing-I-Hate-About-You And Another Thing I Hate About You]]'' is only of the only people to notice Anya is doing this. As she puts it, Anya couldn't have interacted with humans for over a thousand years and trick them into making wishes if she really had NoSocialSkills. Anya admits she just likes [[{{Troll}} messing with the Scoobies]]

[[AC: ''SailorMoon'']]
* During the late '90s, Usagi of ''SailorMoon'' practically ruled this trope. It was all the rage for fanfic writers to make Usagi into a GodModeSue who was only pretending to be an idiot, often by leaving the Inners and dropping the act. That she still can't write proper hiragana as queen and routinely swipes her kid's candy in the canon is conveniently ignored.
** She is TheDitz in the anime, but shows that she is actually pretty smart in the manga, especially as it goes on and the burdens of leadership take their toll. Venus can be considered another case as well, since it is hinted that she speaks fluent English, a language that is just as hard for the Japanese to learn as their own language is for native English speakers. (They're in completely different language families, so have no common baselines).
