** Commander Dodge is famous throughout the Navy for his cavalier attitude to command and his [[WackyFratboyHijinks immature antics]] (not to mention his penis tattoo) but he is also a prime example of immature not meaning irresponsible. His goofball antics never affect his performance on the job in spite of being less than professional, he is well-liked by his subordinates, and he manages to whip a {{World War Two}}-era rustbucket of a submarine and a RagTagBunchOfMisfits into an effective fighting force over the course of a {{Montage}}.

* Glen Whitmann, in ''[[TransformersFilmSeries Transformers]]'', is a brilliant computer hacker, who may have ADHD and exhibits extremely erratic, perhaps sociopathic behavior. Apart from a lack of basic manners and some sort of unspecified paranoia, his great passions in life appear to be video games and getting into places he does not belong. Which could honestly be said of 90% of computer hackers. Hacking is, after all, all about getting into places you don't belong.

* The titular character from ''Film/TheCableGuy'' might be pushy, obnoxious, have absolutely [[NoSocialSkills zero social skills]], NoSenseOfPersonalSpace, and be [[spoiler:a dangerous and vindictive sociopath]], but he happens to be one ''hell'' of a cable guy. The man can find where the problem is in your cable simply by ''talking dirty to the walls'' and is able to clear up interference by doing nothing more than moving furniture. [[spoiler:Later subverted when he ''was'' in fact fired from the cable company, ''countless times by using fake identities'', and is now merely impersonating a cable guy.]]

* Nathan from ''Film/ExMachina'', acts like a drunken frat boy around Caleb, but is smart enough to invent fully intelligent and self aware AI with durable android bodies that easily pass for human.

* Essentially everyone in the film "Real Genius", which could almost be the trope namer.
* ''TheManWithTwoBrains''. Dr. Hfuhruhurr literally wears them going into surgery. It's a practical joke, but it's a VisualPun as you discover that is ''exactly'' the kind of doctor he is. C'mon, folks - screw-top brain surgery?

* ''AceVentura: Pet Detective'' is downright certifiably insane (manic episodes and schizophrenia at the least). He is also very good with animals, a highly observant and capable investigator, a decent actor, ace driver, love-machine ''par excellence'' and no slouch in a fight.

* Daniel Rafferty in the film ''Laws Of Attraction''. When we first see him, he's dozing in court, is scruffy, unkempt, and as we later see, works out of a ramshackle office in a rundown area of Chinatown, despite the fact that he could clearly afford better, as evidenced by his very nice apartment. But within two seconds of meeting uber-uptight attorney Audrey Woods, he wipes the floor with her and it's mentioned that he's never lost a case.

* "Oddball" from ''KellysHeroes'' has a bazillion and nine strange quirks, not least of which is an obsession with positive thinking, but still manages to be a highly skilled tank commander.

* Dr. Newton 'Newt' Geiszler from ''Film/PacificRim''. He's loud and eccentric to say the least. If he wasn't such a competent Kaiju biologist, he'd probably get checked into a mental hospital due to his borderline-obsession with the things.

* {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d early in ''Film/TopGun'' when Air Boss Johnson chews out Maverick and Goose for the umpteenth time. Maverick's lost his qualifications as section leader several times, and has a habit of making high-speed passes by control towers and ''at'' [[TheGeneralsDaughter an admiral's daughter]]. About the only reason he hasn't been kicked out of the Navy altogether is that he's a damn good pilot.
