* Nario off of ''SupahNarioBros''.
* ''Webcomic/TwiceBlessed'': The paladin, [[http://www.twiceblessedcomic.com/?webcomic_character=cade_masters Cade Masters]]. Though sometimes it seems less like idiocy, and more like obliviousness.
* Walky from ''[[WalkyVerse It's Walky!]]'' starts out this way, though he's later revealed as both [[spoiler:a GeniusDitz and a SuperSoldier]]. He also [[ObfuscatingStupidity intentionally played up his ditz nature]] to avoid real responsibility (something he mostly abandoned near the end of ''It's Walky!'').
* ''WebComic/EightBitTheater'''s Fighter [=McWarrior=]. Though this should probably be amended to "Every character whose name ISN'T "White Mage", although even she has her moments.
* Elan from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', even after he TookALevelInBadass. ([[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0597.html or is he?]])
** He even managed to fight his evil twin Nale with stupidity.
--->'''Elan:''' Nale! You're alive!
--->'''Nale:''' Of course I'm alive, you moron. What I can't figure out is how you didn't know I was alive the whole time. You're the bard, surely you should have known that when a bad guy dies off-screen, he's not really dead unless you see the body. And half the time, not even then.
--->'''Elan:''' Yeah, but the hero always THINKS the bad guy is dead until he shows up again.
--->'''Nale:''' But... If you know that, how can you be surprised... Why didn't you realize that you thinking I was dead was... I mean... Gah! I'm giving myself a migraine just trying to understand the level of willful ignorance that requires!
--->'''Elan:''' First blood: Elan!
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has Othar Tryggvassen, '''GentlemanAdventurer!''' He has some tendencies towards this trope at times, especially in his own adventures. At one point, he's trying to find and stop the Weasel Queen. He finds a woman with weasel ears and a throne. Conclusion? She must be a DamselInDistress! Othar is TooDumbToLive in the ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' world. It's a good thing he's also the {{Determinator}}. In the ''GG'' comics, Othar isn't The Hero. He's barely A Hero. He's comic relief, and he's dumb to serve the RuleOfFunny. In the twitter adventures, Othar ''is'' the hero, and he's written as fairly confident and clever, only getting into scrapes because he's a sparky GentlemanAdventurer. (though the {{twitter}} is also written ''by'' [[UnreliableNarrator Othar]], so take it with a grain of salt). Finally, he's [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20120507 absurdly competent]] at ''few'' things, though. Such as surviving being thrown out of an airship (this happens to him with RunningGag frequency).
* Torg from ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. He TookALevelInBadass as well, and does smart stuff sometimes... but reverts right back. Bun-bun can't decide whether it's an act. The real answer is probably one he has practically given himself: he doesn't like to think and prefers to avoid it. When he actually makes the effort, though, the results are either as good as for anyone else or downright brilliant in a weird kind of way. Though Gwynn thinks "[[http://www.sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/070111 he's smart and knows exactly what he's doing]]".
* Karn from ''Webcomic/{{Adventurers}}'' and the nameless hero from ''RPGWorld'' are practically clones of each other.
* Lance from ''WebComic/GoldCoinComics''.
* Link from ''ZeldaComic'' is portayed as this.
* Jim in ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' whenever he's in RPG mode, since he likes to turn his brain off. He's actually quite smart in the real world, and has at least a PH.D. in geophysics.
* In ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' Rogue's temporary ReplacementScrappy Yuri "Wildfire" Keila.
-->''Lothar'':(after Wildfire's stupidity [[spoiler:has ruined their mission]] New rule: No member of the team is allowed more beam swords than brain cells.
** She was so stupid, [[spoiler:The team had her chloroformed, passed of as injured (complete with full body cast), and sent back to Taika in exchange for Rogue, who they, after what Wildfire's done, are delighted to see.]]
* Abraham of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is a mild {{Deconstruction}}: He's so stupid that he's a KnightTemplar. First he accidentally created an ArtifactOfDoom, which he then tried to destroy "by every means possible" ([[WhatAnIdiot but if nothing else, we know he didn't even try to throw it in a volcano]]), and then swore an oath to be [[TakenForGranite petrified]] and only return to life to destroy the "abominations" created by the ArtifactOfDoom.
* Dhur of ''Webcomic/MeatShield'' is fairly dim, being a half orc barbarian and all.
* Subverted in every notable instance in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. That BlueBlood [[TheBigGuy Big Guy]] is a [[GeniusBruiser genius roboticist]]. The hipster obsessed with irony later keeps an intricate timeline of {{Stable Time Loop}}s straight in his head. The main character, John, initially seems like a goofy kid who's not really all that bright, but in a matter of hours he's managed to figure out every bit of practical knowledge in the game. [[spoiler: His sister is a TeenGenius and his father was an OmnidisciplinaryScientist]].
** John does have hidden depths, but he still plays this [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005590 pretty straight most of the time.]] He's pretty gullible (having been lead to his death at least once), wastes time reenacting inane scenes from [[Film/ConAir terrible movies]], generally has far less clue about what's going on than the other characters... but is the first human to ascend to God Tier, and is capable of using [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Windy Thing]] to produce tornadoes so strong they can ''drill through the planet.'' He seems to be heading toward the AllLovingHero. He considers himself the other kids' friend rather than their leader, which (as Rose points out) is precisely why the other kids consider him their leader.
* Minmax from ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}''. The fact [[RoleplayingGame his player]] traded such things as the ability to read for fighting ability is a major RunningGag.
* Even though they're known for burning down friends' apartment buildings just by properly using kitchen appliances, Grymm and Creepknight from ''VoodooWalrus'' are still able to use [[http://voodoowalrus.com/?p=495 unconventional methods to defeat a compliment of union ninjas]].
* Mega Man from ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge''. When he isn't an evil genius, that is.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Greg}}'', Gregorious maintains his idiocy throughout the Medusa story arc by repeatedly falling victim to Medusa's [[http://gregcomic.com/2011/08/25/spoof-the-adventures-of-gregorius/ nude charms]].
* Both of the protagonists in ''Webcomic/{{Skullkickers}}'', although Shorty more so than Baldy. They're actually extremely competent, they just aren't very ''bright''.

-->'''Writers:''' Because he's not very smart.
