** M'aiq the Liar Lair is a Khajiit recurring EasterEgg LegacyCharacter who delivers cryptic fits on two levels. To note:
*** M'aiq is a known a FourthWallObserver (and [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Leaner]] and ''[[BreakingTheFourthWall Breaker]]'') who [[AuthorAvatar voices the opinions]] of the series' creators and developers, largely in the form of
{{Take That}}s That}}s, to both the player when they talk to him. Many [[TakeThatAudience audience]] (given the ''ES'' UnpleasableFanbase) and isn't above above [[SelfDeprecation taking some]] at [[TakeThatUs Bethesda itself]]. Given his role, he comes off as very detached from the setting and many of his statements make absolutely no sense In-Universe, in-universe, making him appear as one of these.
*** All of his incarnations
to date have at least a few odd quirks in-game as well. For example, in ''Morrowind'', he fishes alone on a remote island wearing a stylish but impractical hat. In ''Oblivion'', he often enters ruins and caves (which has likely startled more than a few players) to search for calipers for 5 hours at a time, enters Valenwood along his route between Anvil and Leywiin, and has been known to occasionally chase deer. In ''Skyrim'', he always has [[FantasticDrug skooma]] on his person and can be this trope.encountered in a wide variety of odd situations, including him standing next to a burned cart, several dead human bodies, and the corpse of a ''dragon''.

** [[DivineParentage Demiprinces]] are a form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] born from the union of a [[HalfHumanHybrid Daedra and a mortal]]. Their dual nature gives them an ''odd'' perception of the world and time itself. Fa-Nuit-Hen, a famous Demiprince, talks of events as happening, happened, and will-or-maybe-happening at some point, all at once. They are even considered "eccentric" by the standards of other Daedra.

** His butler in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion: Shivering Isles]]'' also confirms that the "pit full of clowns" story was true.
** Many other characters in that expansion could fit the trope. For example, Big Head, once you give him the Fork of Horripilation he was searching: "Happy day! Happy day! The blind shall see! The lame shall walk! The short shall tall! Forks for all!" Considering that the Shivering Isles is {{Cloudcuckooland}}, this is hardly surprising.

** Riften's court mage Wylandriah in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' is an especially bad case of this, as she keeps launching into non-sequiturs, rambles on about pseudo-magical things without realizing they make absolutely no sense whatsoever to anyone else (even other mages!), and somehow has the ability to "misplace" items from her laboratory ''across half the country'', often in places that someone like her would normally have no business being in the first place. Surprisingly, she hasn't blown anyone or anything up yet... although a few [=NPCs=] fear it's only a matter of time before she accidentally transports Riften into Oblivion or something.
** Cicero in ''Skyrim'' ''seems'' like one of these at first...but not only is he a ''lot'' more competent and dangerous than he looks [[spoiler:he singlehandedly almost kills the rest of the Brotherhood when they finally push him too far]], he is also completely right about how unwise it is for the Brotherhood to stray from centuries of tradition.

* Bomb King from ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' is pretty much your stereotypical abusive, dictatorial, power-mad monarch, but wouldn't be out of place as an IneffectualSympatheticVillain in a Saturday morning cartoon. He assumes that everyone else exists only to serve him, shouts a cheerful "Goodbye!" before making an enemy explode, and doesn't pass up any opportunity to mention how superior he is. [[BewareTheSillyOnes None of this makes him any less dangerous in-game]].

** Grohk is an orc shaman who is completely off his rocker, with bizarre euphemisms and vocal inflections on the most ordinary of call outs. He believes he's a snowman when stunned, wonders if he can eat items he's purchased, and giggles and snorts at random. It says something that having blue skin is the least bizarre thing about him.

* Throughout the ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' franchise, there's usually at least one character per game whose behavior could be described as eccentric, especially when one considers that most of them are battle-hardened soldiers. Treck from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade]]'', however, takes it to a new level. Supports with him reveal all the player ever learns about his personality, but it's enough since his behavior includes: ice-fishing while not actually trying to catch anything, falling asleep in the saddle, forgetting other people's names, stating such forgetfulness is a hobby, placidly accepting his and his comrades' deaths, forgetting ''his own name'', interrupting conversations with tangential platitudes and dreading the possibility of turning into a horse...

* Miis with the "Airheaded" personality tend to be this. They ''easily'' get distracted on battles and sometimes attack the wrong enemies, or worse, ''play with them''. Hopefully, it has its advantages as it can distract the monsters for some time.

** Wigglytuff from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness]]'' is the leader of the Pokémon guild, but is unbelievably flighty, oblivious to villains and their plans, and also [[NotSoHarmlessVillain really, really strong]].

Oh, and he's an {{Idiot Savant}} of sorts, able to spot things no-one else can when it comes to exploration.
