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 - SpongeBob SquarePants Patrick Star is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. He is voiced by actor Bill Fagerbakke, who also voices numerous other characters on the show . Created and designed by marine biologist and cartoonist Stephen Hillenburg, the series creator, Patrick more.

I'm of course referring to modern Spongebob Patrick where they for what ever reason decided to make Patrick incredibly dumb to the point where he just comes off as dangerous an example is when Patrick has to take care of Gary for Spongebob and he nearly kills him - egnomac

People need to realize that "new", as in the actual dictionary definition of "new", SpongeBob is actually pretty good. The show sucked in Season's 6-8. Seasons 9 and 10 are actually good. They're not as good as Seasons 1-3, but I would not hesitate to say that SpongeBob is a good show again. - phillysports

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 brought a Flamethrower to give Gary a Bath what the hell.

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

Peter has gotten to the point where that he's so stupid that he's a danger to everyone around him he does what ever reckless thing he wants with no regards to anyone else just to name a few dangerously stupid things he's done: he shot Quagmire, tried forklefting a whale only to horribly rip the poor thing apart, tried diving into room full of coins like Scooge McDuck only to break his arms and legs, and accidentally cooked his own kids. - egnomac

He from dumb but likable to an absolute terrorist. - thunderstar1124

He is so stupid that he is the funniest character in the show

Peter should be number one. - Flamer310

3 Beavis - Beavis & Butthead 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 Captain Hero - Drawn Together Captain Hero - Drawn Together

Incredibly stupid and reckless he manages to cause more damage than actually prevent it. - egnomac

5 Butthead - Beavis & Butthead 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.

Both Beavis and Butthead are incredibly dumb and reckless and always causes for the people around them. - egnomac

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 breaking laws. - GreninjaGuy

6 Gordon Brody - Freddy Got Fingered Gordon Brody - Freddy Got Fingered

One dangerously stupid thing he did in this movie is laterally trying to pull a fetus baby from its mother's womb and if that wasn't enough he then cuts the cord with his bare teeth an that's not all he then starts swing the baby around trying to get it to cry he's almost worst than Peter Griffin. - egnomac

Whether it be out of stupidity or mental illness, Gord is a character you never want to give orders to. He will misinterpret what's said and do something heinous, even by comedy movie protagonist standards. When he's told to get insight to an animal for his cartoon, he skins a dead deer and gets inside. And that's not getting into his treatment of fetuses, which would've outright killed it. And he's stupid enough to form a father-son relationship with his abusive dad, as well. Whether Gord is stupid is up for debate, he is certainly childish in all the wrong ways. And it crossed the line of being charming upon hearing the first line of the plot synopsis, as Gord has been living with his parents for 28 years. Thankfully we live in a society where someone as dangerously stupid/childish as Gord would get thrown in jail rather quickly. - nerffan8000

7 Dora - Dora the Exlorer 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 .

She always points out the obvious and can't hear your response (she'll ask 3 times). - RaccoonCartoon

Puberty hit her like a rock

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 when I say Dora is greedy.

I want to stab her with a knife. - Jay12

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

He's actually a bigger threat to earth than the bad guys - TwilightKitsune

He's dangerously dumb in a sense that instead of killing off the villain he decides to give them the oportunity to get stronger and it almost always - egnomac

Saiyans are usually barbaric so that maybe made Goku this way when it is genetics involved. The villains are bigger threats because this person likes the Earth and villains do not as much. Unless you saw had Goku in black clothes that is a clone of Goku, known as Goku Black. That is actually Zamasu who merged with Goku to look like Goku.

His cockiness is his biggest weakness

9 Power Pooch - The Wacky World of Tex Avery Power Pooch - The Wacky World of Tex Avery

He's downright one of the most incompetent super hero ever around he's complete clueless, oblivious and his reckless actions make him even more dangerous than the villains he fights. - egnomac

10 Beast Boy - Teen Titans Go! Beast Boy - Teen Titans Go!

He's not really stupid, just lazy. - RaccoonCartoon

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

A centurion who was buried alive in lava for 2,000 years and awakens in modern society due to being from the past and not really that bright to begin with he constantly ends up wrecking havoc on main character Dan with most episodes consists of him horribly maiming him in the worst ways possible though not on purpose. - egnomac

14 Ed - The Lion King Ed - The Lion King

He's still stupid even if he can't talk.

Wow, I can actually agree with the TLK hater for once. And other guys, he can talk. - 445956

So stupid that he even chews his own leg. Why do people think he's smart when he really isn't? The only reason he "knows that Simba is Mufasa's son" or "Scar betrayed the hyenas" and so on is because he always responds to Shenzi and Banzai whenever they ask something. When Banzai asks "What do you think, Ed? " He just laughs as a response. Same with "That's not funny, Ed! ".


He can’t talk
