* Appropriately enough, [[TarotMotifs The Fool]] from the Cliff Johnson classic ''VideoGame/TheFoolsErrand'' qualifies neatly.
* In ''VideoGame/KirbySqueakSquad'', Kirby's motivation for starting his adventure was that his cake was missing. In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', he was revived because, in his hunger, he ate one of Dedede's magic pins.
** Kirby often gets into situations due to his carelessness (and being a BigEater), but once he's aware of a problem, he's too active in fighting whatever miscreant is involved to be a Fool.
* An inversion of this trope, in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', the protagonist's friends social link as the Investigation Team under the tarot of The Fool. Despite this, they grow and learn from the end of the game, and eventually [[spoiler:re-social link under The Judgement.]]
** Same in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and you even start out with a Persona of The Fool Arcana. There's a bit of a visual shout out even, with the female character in the PSP remake, where her hairpins are arranged as XXII.
** Both games invoke the true extent of the Arcana so hard that it becomes a serious case of ShownTheirWork. The protagonists of both games "main" (starting) arcana is The Fool which grows to [[spoiler: the Judgment and, for the protagonists themselves, The World/Universe]]. Additionally, they're both {{Heroic Mime}}s. This might seem like standard RPG procedure until you realize that they're mimes because they ''have no pre-defined personalities'' to speak of, allowing them to fit their personality into any mold they see fit (which is why they can have such profound effects on so many people).
* Jen Tate in ''{{Primal}}''.
** Her behavior, and inappropriate comments and dialog always manage to work out.
** [[spoiler: When under foreign control, she manages to press Scree's BerserkButton to make him fight her. Which was the only way to free her.]]
** She even appears as TheFool on an in-game collectible [[TarotMotifs Tarot Card]].
* The main characters of ''ThePrinceOfTennis'' {{Dating Sim}}s often fall into this trope and NaiveEverygirl. In ''Gakuensai no Oujisama'', the main kid was a normal second-year girl who happened to be chosen as the one organizing the SchoolFestival with the tennis boys...
* Colette from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''.
** In fact Colette is somewhere between the {{Dojikko}}, AllLovingHero and the FriendToAllLivingThings. Since she's not exactly "the Hero", she's somewhat bright on occasion, and she's not particularly lucky (in fact, she's quite the [[BrokenBird unlucky girl]]) she doesn't quite qualify for TheFool.
*** She's really only unlucky with things concerning her sucky destiny. There are sometimes she has avoided attacks sent at her by tripping. Due to similar things happening, Zelos suggests they should let Colette trip on the way to buy a lottery ticket.
* In ''[[UpdatedRerelease Super]] VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'', Ryu is this according to fortune teller Rose, which means he is the only one who can defeat M. Bison for good.
* A lot of comic AdventureGame protagonists could fit the bill but Bwana from ''VideoGame/TheJourneyDown'' is exceptional even among them. For proof, he'll fly a seaplane with his eyes closed, install ship (as in, from a yacht) engines on said plane by flinging them with a crane, and attempt to cook with engine oil. And he'll survive and be impressively successful every time.
* [[{{Touhou}} Reimu Hakurei]] is an interesting case in that she isn't entirely clueless. However, her mind works ''very'' differently from most people's (even considering that "common sense" is a rare thing in the FantasyKitchenSink the games take place in to begin with) and her extreme luck is what allows her to respond to most every incident that occurs with the same course of action: pick a direction at random and go, because no matter what, her luck will lead her to the BigBad so she can stop them. Amusingly, her best friend is a magician, just like in Tarot.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Roommates}}'', Rakesh [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} loses all common sense]] when [[MadArtist the muse takes him]] (which is most of the time).
