** Doctor Light is one of the few capable of matching Doctor Wily's genius, and his program for X is incredibly advanced even for those standards. He's a massive [[TheAlcoholic drunkard]] and BrilliantButLazy - in that he'd rather build an [[SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaid exceedingly-powerful robot to be his lab assistant]] rather than do the chores himself.

** Doctor Wily is one of the greatest experts on robotics in the world, his genius is only outmatched by his ego and insanity; robot masters are [[OneManArmy capabable of taking out entire armies]] with an arm tied behind their backs - ''each'' - and yet every last one of them has a... strange quirk that sends them straight into this trope. He also made [[EvilCounterpart Bass]] to be greater than Megaman in all aspects; Bass is stronger, faster, and an even bigger idiot.

-->'''Piett:''' Thank you, Lord Facemask.Facemask. * In ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'' it would be easier to list the characters that ''aren't'' this trope. As it stands: ** First off, Megaman himself. Before [[MadScientist Doctor Wily]] betrayed Doctor Light, he sabotaged Megaman's programing to make him an idiot so that Light would not have anything to face his [[KillerRobot Robot Masters]]; Doctor Light did his best to program him to fight the robot masters, but could only re-prioritize "To be an idiot" as his ''secondary'' mission. He is frightfully-effective at stopping Doctor Wily, but outside of that he's a huge moron obsessed with ice cream and drinking beer until he pukes - ''in spite'' of being a robot. ** Doctor Wily is one of the greatest experts on robotics in the world, his genius is only outmatched by his ego and insanity; robot masters are [[OneManArmy capabable of taking out entire armies]] with an arm tied behind their backs - ''each'' - and yet every last one of them has a... strange quirk that sends them straight into this trope.

** Lalli, the Scout, is just plain weird. Basically, he acts as much as a cat as is possible without growing a tail, has huge problems with verbal communication and tends to sleep in strange places. He is also an extremely competent scout, capable of finding his way in unknown territory with no apparent effort, very good at reading non-verbal communication (in fact being able to have several meaningful conversations with Emil, in spite of them not having a word of any language in common) and a mage of frightening power. So far, he has shown himself to be able to spirit-walk, control the weather to some extent and combat hostile spirits in the waking world.

Yet Admiral Firmus Piett manages to survive and continue to be a very valuable officer, despite his tendency to make IfMyCalculationsAreCorrect and CaptainObvious observations and sometimes sassing directly to Vader's face. Vader acknowledges that Piett tends to walk the edge a lot. ->'''Vader:''' Your competence and your impertinence continue to maintain an unsteady equilibrium. ->'''Piett:''' Thank you, Lord Facemask.

* Apparently, this is a requirement to be a [[DemolitionsExpert demoman]] in Tagon's Toughs in ''WebComic/SchlockMercenary''. Corporal "Pronto" Pontucci had rare moments of weirdness, but was basically intelligent, competent, and most of all, relatively sensible, aside from an odd tendency to use DuctTapeForEverything. His replacement, Lieutenant Shore "Pi" Pibald, is nutter than a pistachio plantation and several orders of magnitude more eccentric than Pronto ever was, on account of needing significant amounts of medication to come ''down'' to the level of calling himself "GodEmperor Pi the First." Pi might be every bit as irrational as his nickname suggests, what with being a paranoid schizophrenic megalomaniac, but he demonstrates a level of explosives knowledge and technique second only to [[OmnidisciplinaryScientist Kevyn]], and he has Kevyn beat for pure MadBomber tendencies--he's thus far the only person shown to have personally blown a hole ''through'' a [[TheBattlestar battleplate]] through a simple combination of having both an excessive amount of explosives and no self preservation instinct whatsoever.

** The Captain, Sigrun, is a BookDumb {{Motor Mouth}}ed GenkiGirl with strong BloodKnight tendencies, but has proven extremely capable as a leader, being able to effortlessly juggle TheStoic Mikkel, NewMeat Emil and just plain strange Lalli, [[AFatherToHisMen delegating, supporting and making the whole team feel useful.]] Also, when asked to pick a target for the team's first combat mission, she picks a the best target in a split second... namely the one that has the best fall-back options. ** Mikkel, TheMedic, has a dark deadpan sense of humor and a tendency to mercilessly troll everyone. However, he is also all-round competent, taking care of unglamorous stuff like decontamination, heavy lifting and cooking and is generally a much needed emotional anchor. ** Emil, the Cleanser, is [[NewMeat greener than grass in may]], a textbook SpoiledBrat and has the worst case of FootInMouthDisease since someone put a microphone in front of Prince Philip, but he knows his booms and from what we've seen so far his instincts and training are solid, and several of his interactions with Lalli and various kids show him to be quite a softie.

* A number of the characters in ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'' fall under this, from Math (lecherous but unspeakably talented martial artist), to Heatwave (capable of sublimating tanks, but dumb as a brick), to Sydney (has a suite of eight orbs that give her unique and strong powers along with comic book knowledge to apply those powers properly, but severe ADHD, trouble with authority, and overall a PR nightmare). This is explicitly justified; powers are rare enough that they can't pick and choose their team. As long as a super doesn't have an actual criminal record ([[BoxedCrook and possibly sometimes even then]]), they're invited to join, since it's better to have them on the team where they can be monitored and trained than off it where they can get into trouble.
