* Tallahasse, from ''{{Film/Zombieland}}'', whose picture formerly graced the main page. While Columbus is simply trying to survive, Tallahassee deals with his depression brought on by the apocalypse by eating Twinkies, which he can almost never find. And he is so awesome that sometimes he is forced to rely on improvised weapons. At the climax, he's using ''rollercoasters''.

* The major motion picture version of ''{{Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs}}'' has two: one as Earl—that is his name, yes?—and the other, Manny(?), as non-crazy but technically fitting variation.

* The titular character (played by JohnnyDepp) in ''[[DonJuanDemarco Don Juan DeMarco]]'' is subject to a persistent identity delusion... which brings happiness to him and everybody in his vicinity. So does his condition really need to be cured?

* [[Film/CitizenKane Charles Foster Kane's]] first action after acquiring the New York Inquirer is move into the editor's office (quite literally, as his two offsiders ''move all his belongings in there''), because "news happens twenty-four hours a day". Within a few years he became the sad fat man everyone remembers, but ''damned'' if young Kane isn't the closest 1940s drama heroes get to CrazyAwesome.
* ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean''
** '''''Captain''''' Jack Sparrow, who, by the third movie is certifiably off his rocker, if only there were someone to certify him. Jack got most of his good ideas in the film from his ''hallucinations''. Of ''himself''. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the third movie..

** The other captain of the Black Pearl, Hector Barbossa, is pretty CrazyAwesome himself. For example, in the third film, he intentionally gets his own ship hopelessly lost in order to find the "World's End"... and does so, followed by ''sailing it off the edge of the planet'' into the Netherworld, while [[LargeHam laughing like a maniac, with an "arr" or two thrown in just for giggles.]]

* If ever there was a museum dedicated to CrazyAwesome, one exhibit would have to be the remains of the mental ward in OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest as seen the morning after the party, as a testament to causative agent Randall P. [=McMurphy=], virtually a god of the trope.

* Doc Brown in ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture''. He builds all manner of gadgets but his CrowningMomentOfAwesome would be a time machine. Built out of a [[CoolCar DeLorean]] because he wanted to do it with style. To get it up to the eighty eight miles an hour to time travel is almost as impossible as time travel. The idea to make it possible came after he hit his head on a toilet seat. He gets the plutonium needed for it to work by ripping off Libyan terrorists with a pinball machine. On its test he has himself and Marty stand right in the car's path believing the car would go through time rather than run them over. In the past he slides down an electric cable from the clock tower and electrocutes himself to get the time machine to work. When he is accidently sent to the Old West he has Western Union deliver a letter to Marty at the exact time and place where the DeLorean malfunctioned, sixty years later. He built a giant SteamPunk machine to make ice cubes and a sniper rifle out of a telescope. And at the end after swearing off time travel he builds another time machine, built ''out of a flying locomotive,'' with his children Jules and Verne and his wife from a hundred years ago. [[CoolOldGuy That should do it.]]
* Eugene Tackleberry of the ''PoliceAcademy'' series. His solution to ''everything'' [[WhenALlYouHaveIsAHammer is to shoot at it]]. Little wonder he's one of the few characters who's been in every film.

* Buck of ''WesternAnimation/IceAge''. Nothing he says makes sense... and yet he somehow makes it make sense with how he's the only mammal in the entire underground world he's in. Just get past the fact that he's married to a pineapple...

* Of the many, many, ''many'' CrazyAwesome aspects of Film/MadMaxFuryRoad, a standout element is the Doof Wagon, which is basically a stage on wheels with speakers galore, holding a team of six Taiko drummers in the back and a Warboy, the eponymous Doof Warrior, shredding on a flame-spewing electric guitar on the front. Not only is it completely fucking awesome on its own, it's also practical; Immortan Joe uses the music as a morale booster for his army, as well as a way to relay his orders, akin to Civil War era drummer boys.
