Top 10 Dangerously Dumb Fictional Characters

Dumb characters who are not just dumb, but dumb to the point where they are a danger not only to themselves but to everyone around them.
The Top Ten
1 Patrick Star - SpongeBob SquarePants Patrick Star is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants, and he is one of the 10 main characters in the show. He is voiced by actor Bill Fagerbakke, who also voices numerous other characters on the show. Created and designed by marine biologist and cartoonist... read more

I'm, of course, referring to modern SpongeBob's Patrick. For whatever reason, they decided to make Patrick incredibly dumb to the point where he comes off as dangerous. An example is when Patrick has to take care of Gary for SpongeBob and nearly kills him.

Well, just seasons 6-8. He's perfectly harmless besides those seasons. Although, he was kind of a jerk in Little Yellow Book (Season 9A).

He was genuinely funny in the old seasons, but now he's so dumb that it's just irritating to watch.

2 Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

He's so dumb, and everyone treats him like he's normal. He belongs in an asylum, slowly becoming more insane until he kills himself. He is so mean to his family. How the hell is this funny? The only character I like is Stewie, and maybe Brian when he's paired up with Stewie. He stabbed a whale, whipped Meg and Stewie (Meg was smoking. Stewie did nothing), made Lois run over Stewie when his head was so badly injured you could see his bloody brain, and shot Quagmire for no reason.

Peter has gotten to the point where he's so stupid that he's a danger to everyone around him. He does whatever reckless thing he wants, with no regard for anyone else. Just to name a few dangerously stupid things he's done: he shot Quagmire, tried to lift a whale with a forklift only to horribly rip the poor thing apart, tried diving into a room full of coins like Scrooge McDuck only to break his arms and legs, and accidentally cooked his own kids.

3 Beavis - Beavis & Butthead Beavis is a fictional character. He is one of the young teenaged protagonists on the MTV animated series Beavis and Butt-head.
4 Butthead - Beavis & Butthead Butt-Head is a fictional character from the MTV animated series Beavis and Butt-Head. He is voiced by the show's creator, Mike Judge.

They allegedly influenced a 3-year-old to burn down his trailer, killing his sister. Whether that's true or not, even in the show they have been known to burn down buildings and break laws.

Both Beavis and Butt-Head are incredibly dumb and reckless and are always causing problems for the people around them.

5 Captain Hero - Drawn Together

Incredibly stupid and reckless, he manages to cause more damage than he actually prevents.

6 Beast Boy - Teen Titans Go! Beast Boy is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, usually as a member of the teams Teen Titans and Doom Patrol. Created by writer Arnold Drake and artist Bob Brown, he first appeared in The Doom Patrol #99.

First of all, before I say anything, I just want to clarify that it should technically be Teen Titans, not Teen Titans Go, as Teen Titans was the original form of Teen Titans Go. Secondly, I disagree. He's lazy, yes, but he's also pretty stupid.

7 Dora - Dora the Exlorer Dora is the main protagonist in the show "Dora the Explorer". Her main occupation is exploring with her monkey friend, Boots.

Dora: What was your favorite part of the day?

Me: Um, I guess when–

Dora: I liked that part too. My favorite part was when we saved the day, blah, blah, blah.


I think we can all agree that Dora is greedy.

She can't find something that is right next to her. She is very stupid.

Her parents actually trust her to go out alone.

8 Goku - Dragon Ball Z Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He has many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability... read more

He's dangerously dumb in the sense that instead of killing off the villain, he decides to give them the opportunity to get stronger, and it almost always happens.

He's actually a bigger threat to Earth than the bad guys.

His cockiness is his biggest weakness.

9 Richard Watterson - The Amazing World of Gumball Richard Watterson is the father of Gumball, Darwin, and Anais in the animated series The Amazing World of Gumball.

Honestly, what did Nicole see in him?

10 Ash Ketchum - Pokémon Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional main character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.
The Contenders
11 Gordon Brody - Freddy Got Fingered

Whether it's out of stupidity or mental illness, Gord is a character to whom you never want to give orders. He will misinterpret what's said and do something heinous, even by comedy movie protagonist standards. When he's told to get insight into an animal for his cartoon, he skins a dead deer and climbs inside. That's not even touching on his treatment of fetuses, which would have outright killed them.

Furthermore, he's naive enough to form a father-son relationship with his abusive dad. Whether Gord is stupid is up for debate, but he is certainly childish in all the wrong ways. His charm wore off upon hearing the first line of the plot synopsis. Gord has been living with his parents for 28 years. Thankfully, we live in a society where someone as dangerously stupid or childish as Gord would be thrown in jail rather quickly.

12 Anna - Frozen Princess Anna of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.
13 Cosmo - Fairly Odd Parents Cosmo is Timmy fairy godfather. He's Wanda's husband and Poof's dad. Cosmo is very immature and stupid, but also very charming and a loving father, godfather and husband.
14 Caillou - Caillou Caillou, which means "pebble" or "stone" in French, is the self-proclaimed "Prince of Imagination." He is a four-year-old boy who serves as the main protagonist of the TV series and books, both of which share his name... read more
15 Minnie Mouse - Disney Minerva "Minnie" Mouse is a cartoon character created by Ub Iwerks and Walt Disney. She was first drawn by Iwerks in 1928, as was Mickey Mouse. Her former voice actor Russi Taylor (1944 - 2019) voiced her for 30 years & also married Wayne Allwine (1947 - 2009), the former voice of Mickey Mouse. Minnie... read more
16 Ed - Ed Edd n Eddy Ed is one of the three protagonists in the Canadian-American animated comedy television series Ed, Edd n Eddy. He is the strongest and the least intelligent member of the Eds.
17 Akihisa Yoshii - Baka & Test
18 Reese Wilkerson - Malcolm in the Middle
19 Aqua - Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!
20 Jeffy - SuperMarioLogan

He is very dumb and extremely funny because he has a pencil in his nose and yells Uh! while smacking his diaper like Pooperman.

Jeffy always makes me laugh all the time.

21 Captain Underpants - Captain Underpants Captain Underpants is a fictional character in the popular children's book series Captain Underpants and the eponymous character. He is the alter ego of Benjamin Krupp created by George and Harold. He is the tritagonist of the Captain Underpants book series.

I like him. He is thick, but much better than Jeffy.

22 Power Pooch - The Wacky World of Tex Avery

He's downright one of the most incompetent superheroes ever. He's completely clueless, oblivious, and his reckless actions make him even more dangerous than the villains he fights.

23 Annoying Orange - Annoying Orange
24 Inspector Gadget - Inspector Gadget Inspector Gadget is a fictional superhero/agent. He first appeared in a animated show in the 1980s. He was voiced by Don Adams. He was later adapted in live action in a 1999 film starring Matthew Broderick and a 2003 film starring French Stewart. In 2015 he got a new animated show where he is voiced... read more
