** Background character mentioned only in passing, but: [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20071217 X The Destroyer]] is definitely an example. He camped on the big plain in front of Mechanicsburg, right on top of the big X.

* In ''Webcomic/NintendoAcres'' Link was originally portrayed as being so dumb that he couldn't open doors without using bombs.



** Crystal of the Thieves' Guild is described by [[WordOfGod Rich]] in the commentaries as being too dumb to live, and really only survives because she's got Bozzak thinking for her. The comics repeatedly demonstrate this fact.

* Many prey animals in ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'' display this behavior, such as walking into obvious predator traps, attracting attention to themselves while out in the open. Ray (a firefly) in particular isn't at all bothered by Lindesfarne being an insectivore. Ray is a bit on the dim side. His moth wife Tammy is theoretically smarter, and she has a close friendship with said insectivore.

His moth wife Tammy is theoretically smarter, and she has a close friendship with said insectivore. In fairness to Tammy, that friendship started just as Lindesfarne switched over to insectivore, so she probably wasn't thinking of a moth her own size as food.

* In ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'', Jim plays Han Solo as a complete moron who brings himself and his team headlong to death's door.

* In ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'', Jim plays Han Solo as a complete moron who brings himself and his team headlong to death's door. And this isn't unusual for Jim, who is the resident GeniusDitz; Han is unique in that Jim is doing it deliberately this time, instead of his usual approach of just going with the first idea that occurs to him at any given point.

** 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.

** [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20141029 The adviser sent by the council]] to advise Martellus has all of them beaten, though. Tweedle is an unstable bastard at the best of times, but when said adviser, after ordering to fire on the Corbettites as a show of power (which results in the loss of several airships), explains with lots of condescension to Martellus that he's still young and need to be shown how it is done, you know he doesn't have long to live. Tweedle [[DestinationDefenestration throws him out of the airship]] before he can even finish his spiel]].
