* 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.

* Sergeant Martin Riggs from ''LethalWeapon''. Any version. "We're back, we're bad, you're black, I'm mad."
* ''Literature/{{Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas}}'', book and film. How else to explain their massive tolerance for drugs, for starters?

* The [[Film/StarTrek new incarnation]] of James T. Kirk. He cheats [[UnwinnableTrainingSimulation The Kobayashi Maru]], convinces his best friend to sneak him on board the Federation flagship whilst grounded for cheating said test, gets himself promoted to first officer, provokes Spock into abandoning his post as acting captain, and then throws approximately eight billion lives into the hands of one questionably sober but undeniably brilliant engineer. And then he saves Earth. And then he jumps from Cadet to Captain of that same Federation flagship within, at most, two years, meaning he is at least a half-decade younger than his TOS counterpart—who was ''also'' the youngest Captain in Starfleet history.
* Staff Sergeant William James in ''TheHurtLocker''. He keeps parts from bombs he's disarmed--but only from the ones that almost killed him. At one point, realizing how big the bomb he's trying to disarm is and that even with the disposal suit he would die if he screwed up, he takes it off (noting that "If I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die comfortable", and ''flipping off his superior officer when ordered to put it back on''). With some of the stuff he pulled, if he weren't such a genius at the job, he...well, he'd be dead.

* What does Dr. Hank Pym in ''Film/AntMan'' do to escape a building that is going to be destroyed? Why, grow a shrunken down tank disguised as a keychain and drive it of course? He also pretty much solves any other problems he faces as well as doing his regular, everyday activities by just using ants.

* Ferris Bueller from ''{{Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff}}'' is the epitome of this trope. His crazy monologues, though filled with nonsense, still manage to make perfect sense. He is never content with he and his friend's normal antics during their day off from school. In every instance he kicks up the antics a notch to the Crazy/Awesome level.
