** Old Blind Pete sells out his friend the cleric of Loki, Haley, Celia and Belkar so he can regenerate his eyes without the Thieves' Guild [[EyeScream objecting]]. When he returns to see that the Guild is still dealing with them, he wants to hang out in his living room instead of staying the hell away while multiple mid-to-high level belligerents whom he personally betrayed are still at large inside. Belkar and the cleric friend wipe out the thieves Pete is talking to and Belkar stabs him in the foot so he can't get away. When Pete tries to weasel his way out, the cleric of Loki notes how smart he is, and in a CallBack to Pete saying how when one deals with criminals, one shouldn't be named after any body part you can't afford to lose, names him "Brainy Pete".

** [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080723 "I will shoot any man who tries to move this ship."]] Not only is this guy as good as dead, he possibly just doomed the whole crew with him (well, assuming they can make it out in time). If they [[ScyllaAndCharybdis don't get picked up]] by the Baron.
*** The novelisation goes further with this, explaining that even before this, the Duke Strinbeck had been a total berk even the other nobles looked down on, having lost his land to animated toys. His cause of death was even labelled as Too Dumb To Live, something his next-of-kin didn't even blink at.

* The Elves in ''Webcomic/ErrantStory'', with ''exactly'' two exceptions (Sarine and Misa [literally the youngest elf in the world]).

Note that Meji is just as powerful as Ian, the half-elf that nearly killed them all minutes earlier. ''And they know it.'']] Not a single Elf on the scene so much as protests his words (save [[spoiler:Sarine]], who's too exhausted and disgusted to muster the energy).
* The end of the "Red Herring" arc of ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' sums up an entire town's cult as this. [[spoiler:After generations of absorbing the entire town into the cult, its members chose to reduce themselves into an artificially sweetened, powdered beverage mix, which was then infused into lime cool-ade for its leader to drink and thus become a gestalt psychic entity. He only got a litre and a half down before he fell into a diabetic coma, dipped into the cannibal juice and drowned. In a universe of powerful daemonic and supernatural entities and eldritch forces at work, ''none of them'' were involved in this travesty. In the end, as Eastwood said, "a group of nutters chlorinated, sweetened, and artificially flavored their own gene pool".]]

** Fighter. In fact, he's so dumb he can't even BE killed.
** Black Mage also qualifies, most famously for his fondness of solving every problem with nuclear blasts, having apparently once used it on a bee. It gets worse when it turns out that he can only use his nuke spell once per day, and favors using his knife over other spells (he repeatedly tries to kill Fighter with it, with no success), and when once suggested that he use a lower-than-level-9 spell, he said they weren't his idiom. Aside
from ''[[http://www.agameoffools.com A Game this, there's also his attempts at hitting on White Mage, which usually result in her beating him to a pulp. Red Mage also falls under this, once being too dumb to use white magic on himself after getting his ass kicked by werewolves[[note]]He didn't want to use up the spell, you see.[[/note]], and once not noticing a bridge across lava that Fighter and Black Mage notice. Even [[MagnificentBastard Thief]] gets this as [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2002/05/20/episode-150-even-thief-can-make-a-mistake/ this strip shows.]] In spite of Fools]]''.this, all four of them have some moments of intelligence.
** The entire order of the Red Mages, there's a reason Red Mage is TheLastOfHisKind. You see, they held their elaborate, secret meetings, while other people were busy finding mates and reproducing. This, combined with their trying to find the underlaying rules of how the universe worked by hitting each other with random weapons and spells to see how much damage they did, sort of resulted in, well... as Muffin so aptly put it:
--->'''Muffin:''' You stupided yourselves into extinction.
** You can't forget Black Belt, who once got so lost travelling down a straight hallway that he ended up tearing a hole in space/time, resulting in him being followed around by a time duplicate of himself from one second in the past.
** Bikke started out merely very stupid, with things like refusing to repair his ship while sailing on a monster-filled sea and feeding his crew nothing but Cheetos, and later [[{{Flanderisation}} evolved]] to the point where even Fighter appeared more intelligent.

So when she found out that he was betraying their master, she told him that she knew and was going to alert Xykon, expecting him to stand meekly aside and allow it (and if not, just run away because she's got minions to intercept him and teleportation spells to outmaneuver him). What really makes this Too Dumb to Live is that even if Redcloak ''was'' submissive, telling him that you're going to get him killed would certainly provoke a response--even a docile animal can be dangerous when cornered. Plus, Redcloak has repeatedly demonstrated a CrazyPrepared nature, so even those teleportation spells she could have used to evade him could have been (and were) countered.
** Nale proves himself to be this when [[spoiler: he tells his father and Laurin, who are both far stronger than him, ''to their faces'' that he killed Malack, who was an old adventuring friend of theirs and Tarquin's best friend, and that he suffered as he died. Laurin is clearly enraged by this, and when Nale tells his father that he wants nothing from him, including his protection, Tarquin kills him as [[AvengingTheVillain payback for killing Malack.]] For good measure, Laurin disintegrates his body so he can't be resurrected.]]

* ''QuentynQuinnSpaceRanger''. Thus far, the title character has had to deal with nothing BUT this sort of alien... first with a crew of "space pirates" who manage to get eaten by their third would-be hijacking victim; then the [[{{expy}} blue-skinned]] [[Franchise/StarTrek Federation aliens]] who run their ship with an exposed antimatter reactor, have crackerbox computer security, fly shuttlecraft with the aerodynamics of a cement block, and use matter-transporter technology despite having at least one crewmember who has been grotesquely mutated and deformed by its chronic use....
* In Book 10 of ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', the inhabitants of the Credomar Habitat use ''fuel-air explosives'' inside their ''space station'' as part of a protest march.

* Leo from ''Webcomic/VGCats''. The examples are too numerous to list them all, but one includes him [[TimeTravel going back in time]] and [[FutureMeScaresMe cutting off his younger self's arms]], just to see if his own would turn into stumps. [[CuriosityKilledTheCast And they did.]]
** Given that Aeris had given his mother an ''abortion'' two strips previously and Leo [[UnexplainedRecovery got better]], and that young Leo seems just as enthused about his future self's arms being cut off, Leo's a textbook case of Too Dumb to ''[[RasputinianDeath Die]]''.

* Apparently, the two kids in [[http://xkcd.com/782/ this]] ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' comic are just bright enough to recognize Indian bones but not bright enough to recognize an IndianBurialGround until ''after'' they've desecrated it (and no doubt invited all sorts of well-deserved supernatural horrors onto themselves - check out the AltText for more fun).
* Fighter from ''WebComic/EightBitTheater''. In fact, he's so dumb he can't even BE killed.
** Fighter isn't the only one. Black Mage also qualifies, most famously for his fondness of solving every problem with nuclear blasts, having apparently once used it on a bee. It gets worse when it turns out that he can only use his nuke spell once per day, and favors using his knife over other spells (he repeatedly tries to kill Fighter with it, with no success), and when once suggested that he use a lower-than-level-9 spell, he said they weren't his idiom. Aside from this, there's also his attempts at hitting on White Mage, which usually result in her beating him to a pulp. Red Mage also falls under this, once being too dumb to use white magic on himself after getting his ass kicked by werewolves[[note]]He didn't want to use up the spell, you see.[[/note]], and once not noticing a bridge across lava that Fighter and Black Mage notice. Even [[MagnificentBastard Thief]] gets this as [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2002/05/20/episode-150-even-thief-can-make-a-mistake/ this strip shows.]] In spite of this, all four of them have some moments of intelligence.
** The entire order of the Red Mages, there's a reason Red Mage is TheLastOfHisKind. You see, they held their elaborate, secret meetings, while other people were busy finding mates and reproducing. This, combined with their trying to find the underlaying rules of how the universe worked by hitting each other with random weapons and spells to see how much damage they did, sort of resulted in, well... as Muffin so aptly put it:
-->'''Muffin:''' You stupided yourselves into extinction.
** You can't forget Black Belt, who once got so lost travelling down a straight hallway that he ended up tearing a hole in space/time, resulting in him being followed around by a time duplicate of himself from one second in the past.
** Bikke started out merely very stupid, with things like refusing to repair his ship while sailing on a monster-filled sea and feeding his crew nothing but Cheetos, and later [[{{Flanderisation}} evolved]] to the point where even Fighter appeared more intelligent.
