Well, most of the time there is also a smart kid. The dumb kid is there as a foil to the smart kid.

It's called a "foil" character... used to emphasize the characteristics or traits of another character of opposite qualities, usually the protagonist.

It's not unique to anime. Foil characters are found in most comedies and other stories, as well.


That pretty much answers your question.
