* Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar in ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' is irritatingly [[ThirdPersonPerson pretentious]], has various odd traits and is weirdly fixated on conquering a tiny piece of valueless territory belonging to a bunch of losers and madmen, who he is nonetheless FriendlyEnemies with. He's also one of the greatest military leaders ever to live and by far the cleverest, noblest Roman we're ever introduced to. Cleopatra was also like this - an excellent queen but also a materialistic spoiled brat who eats disgusting food - but she [[SilkHidingSteel mellows out as the series progresses]].

* Alexander Glushko of ''ComicBook/TopTen'' is a darker take on the trope, since his bunny-ears are rampant alcoholism. However, since he is the only telepath the Neopolis PD has access to, they're willing to overlook him being black-out drunk on the job as long as he is capable of telling interrogators what suspects are thinking.

* ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' is set on a ship full of people who are, for one reason or another, utterly dysfunctional, but enough of them are good at their jobs that they can get away with only ''moderate'' uselessness. Brainstorm is a MadScientist [[spoiler:and double agent]] but a genius who can build basically anything no matter how impossible; Whirl and Cyclonus are {{Jerkass}}es most of the time, but are both talented warriors even though they spend most of the first season despising each other; Ultra Magnus is so inflexible about the rules he has been known to consider people suspicious for wearing their badges at an angle, but backs this up with incredible strength and military skill; Chromedome is a DeathSeeker and a brilliant mnemosurgeon. Even the command staff get in on this: Rodimus is a hotheaded GloryHound who has been known to pretend to be ''dead'' to avoid difficult questions, but he's also the only one actively pursuing the Knights of Cybertron and is a skilled leader and warrior [[BrilliantButLazy when he can be bothered]], [[spoiler:and [[HeelFaceTurn Megatron]] is ''freaking Megatron'']].

** However, Taskmaster himself called Deadpool out for this, telling him that one of the reasons he's not taken seriously and ''doesn't make nearly as much money as he could'' is because he's so crazy that it's even ''more'' crazy for people to think they can rely on him. Hell, in some of his earliest incarnations, he would change sides in the middle of a fight if he was offered more money. If you have a hopeless suicide mission, call Deadpool. If you need subtlety and discretion, stay light-years away from him. Also, since Deadpool has developed a conscience and tries to do the right thing, there's no guarantee that he won't turn on someone who just paid him if he thinks the situation warrants it.

* James from ''BowlingKing'' is a former champion bowler with incredibly formidable skills. Not that his protege Shautieh could tell after spending an entire morning of shopping with him; all James seems to care about is his wife, and he rarely focuses on what he's actually supposed to be doing... but he still manages to see patterns and method to Shautieh's approach that even he wasn't aware of before.

* Peter Parker is probably similar, and likely wouldn't have a job at the Bugle at all were it not for his ability to nab so many photos of ''{{Spider-Man}}''. Though for a lot of his career, Peter was freelance.

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} could very easily fit into this category as, despite his blatant insanity, tendency to annoy others and, occasionally, sheer stupidity he is frequently hired as he's just too good at his job.

* Raptor in ''GIJoe'' comics. Cobra's ''accountant'', he's a [[MadScientist Mad FALCONER]] who dresses like a bird at all times and is regarded as a complete nutjob even by other Cobra operatives and Cobra Commander himself. On the other hand... he's an okay accountant and nobody else would work for Cobra.

* Arthur on ''TheTick'' is a perfectly normal everyday human and an experienced chartered accountant in an accountancy firm... Who also wears a full-body moth suit. Even to work. In an aversion, this gets him fired in all continuities.

* Famed reporter Clark Kent, aka {{Superman}}, has a horrible attendance problem. Tolerated, because he brings in the good stories anyway, and one of the reasons Clark chose 'reporter' as a job in the first place was flexible hours. It doesn't hurt that Clark happens to be the fastest typist on staff.

* Jughead Jones of ''ComicBook/ArchieComics'' fame is sometimes portrayed as this, though it [[DependingOnTheWriter Depends On The Writer]]. One issue even had Mr. Weatherbee and Ms. Grundy ''furious'' at the revelation that Jughead was getting straight-As despite being such an oddball and slacker, and utterly refused to believe it was due to anything other than cheating until he aced a pop quiz.

** In one story, Superman assumes the identity of Johnny Clark, a firefighter. His taciturn standoffish nature is tolerated by the Metropolis Fire Brigade because he's just that good at saving people. ([[CaptainObvious But then, why wouldn't he be?]]) The fact that this new identity allows him to help people 24/7 could also mean the Johnny Clark persona is a Bunny Ears Lawyer for Superman as well.

** He even intentionally got himself sent to detention so he'd have a ''quiet place to study'', it never occurred to him to just ''ask'' if he could stay after class.
