* Faye from ''TheGrimnoirChronicles'' is a teleporting Okie girl who thinks several times faster than everyone else and is ''really'' good at killing people. She tends to sort everyone she meets into one of three categories: 'Friends,' 'Stupid,' and 'Needs to Die.'

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Literature/{{Clementine}}'' books, Clementine's friend Waylon believes that he has superpowers and also before eating anything conducts a pretend battle between his food items. A lot of this is toned down in the SequelSeries starring him.

to:

* ''Literature/TheSouthernReachTrilogy'': Whitby was eccentric ''before'' his [[spoiler:unauthorized trip into Area X with the director]]. What he saw there didn't help his state of mind one bit. He drifts in and out of focus, voicing cryptic suggestions, and Control remarks how Whitby's theories make sense only on the surface but descend into outlandish fantasies upon a closer look.

* Maia Fresia from Creator/UmbertoEco's ''Literature/NumeroZero'' is very much this, having some childlike mannerisms and a penchant for saying things that randomly pop into her head (one of her colleagues even speculates that she has "a mild form of autism"). Interestingly, she combines this with a great sense of humor and a sharp wit.

* The old man Lift meets in ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'' is spending his free time sitting on a bench, interrupting random people in the street and asking them which body parts they are, treating any answer as absolutely honest. He claims he's trying to form world's ultimate philosophy. [[spoiler:With the reveal that he's actually a Hive Mind made up of dozens of insects specialized in functions of various body parts, this makes a bit more sense.]]

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'':
** Shallan can come off as this when the scholarly side of her takes over, such as interrupting Adolin's boasts about his battles on the Shattered Plains to wonder how [[NobodyPoops he poops in Shardplate]].

to:

* The etherealists in the steampunk series, ''Literature/TheCinderSpires''. (Yet another series by the author of ''Literature/CodexAlera'' and ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''.) Apparently, being a conduit for etheric energies is not conducive to sanity.
---> ''Let me put it this way, sir. If you ever meet an etherealist who does not seem odd, you will have ample reason for caution. An etherealist who speaks to things that are not there and cannot track the day of the week is par for the course. One who is perfectly well dressed, calmly spoken, and inviting you to tea? That is someone to be feared.''
