* Disney's ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' has an interesting take on this. While disguised as a man, Mulan ''seems'' to be a total space cadet, acting on some bizarre logic of "his" own. Those apparent quirks are caused by a combination of bad advice on how to act "manly", having to hide her gender, and being subtly bullied by the others after she earns everyone's enmity right at the start. Not surprisingly, she starts to appear as more normal once the others accept her and she adapts to her situation.

* Hammy from ''WesternAnimation/OverTheHedge''. For instance, his first idea when the characters wonder what the eponymous hedge is called is to call it Steve, on account of "it's a pretty name".

* The Dag from Film/MadMaxFuryRoad is practically named for this trope. "Dag" is Oceanic slang for someone who is a loveable, kooky oddball.

* ''Film/{{Arizona Dream}}'': While most of the cast qualifies, Paul stands out as living on his own private cloud. He's an aspiring actor who's given to falling into any role at any time. If there's a TV on, he'll quote the lines. Go to the theater? He'll hop up in front of the screen and act along with the movie, undaunted by the boos and rain of popcorn. Bump his head on the ceiling fan? That's the perfect time to launch into the Cowardly Lion's monologue from ''The Wizard of Oz''.

* A lot of the characters in Christopher Guest's {{mockumentary}} comedies would fit this trope. To take but one example, Fred Willard's dog-show announcer in ''BestInShow'' goes from wondering aloud why one entrant isn't dressed up in a Sherlock Holmes-style deerstalker hat and pipe to asking which dog would make a good wide receiver on a football team. He later asks his on-air partner, apropos of nothing at all, to guess how much he can bench-press.

*Film/TheChristmasBunny: Mrs. Ross, the Bunny Lady. She's also something a Crazy Cat Lady, if you consider the amount of bunnies she cares for.

* Forrest from ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'', a ''Styracosaurus'' who is [[GoMadFromTheIsolation desperate enough for company]] that he keeps a small menagerie of critters around (including a small lizard named "Fury", a tusked gopher named "Dream-Crusher", and [[OddNameOut a cardinal named "Debbie"]]) just to have someone to talk to.
