* In ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'', Scanlan Shorthalt has all the appearances and mannerisms of a QuirkyBard, and Creator/SamRiegel has stated in interviews that he explicitly tried to make the dumbest character possible. However, Scanlan has had several badass moments throughout the series (thanks to 5th Edition ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' Bards being incredibly powerful and versatile spellcasters,) including [[spoiler:taking on an entire manor filled with armed guards by himself]] in Episode 31, [[spoiler:severing Percy's connection to [[EnemyWithout Orthax]]]] in Episode 35, [[spoiler: slaying a [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Pit Fiend]] and stopping the Efreeti guards from arresting Vox Machina]] in Episode 76, and [[spoiler:holding his own in a WizardDuel against ''freaking [[PhysicalGod Vecna]]'']] in Episode 114.

* In WarriorCats, Graystripe sometimes comes across as this. He's Firestar's fat, fluffy friend, with a tendency to swoon over pretty she-cats, a habit of being a helicopter parent (to the point of one exasperated queen sarcastically inquiring about whether he was pregnant too), and an inability to lie convincingly. He's also a loving father and a loyal warrior who will end you without a moment's hesitation if you cross him or anyone he cares about.

* And then MassEffectAndromeda, also Creator/BioWare. Snark!Ryder comes across at times as the last person who should be given a position of influence and power, but all Ryders get some beautiful lines in. At one point, Invictor, a leader from the the evil alien antagonist faction, keeps taunting Ryder with messages that begin, "I am Invictor!" and then go on to describe something horrible. Ryder responds to one about how he would kill any captives, but he wouldn't bother taking any, with:

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'': Harry Dresden is perpetually sarcastic, spouting pop culture references at the drop of a hat and is generally quite friendly. He is also [[TheDreaded powerful enough to give the Senior Council pause]].

** Master Namer Elodin is a CloudCuckoolander who once lit another master's robes on fire because they annoyed him. He is also a Master Namer, meaning that he has power over fire, air, stone, iron, wood, and almost certainly loads more. Essentially, he's the most dangerous human character, and ''not'' one to be trifled with. Fortunately for [[TheAce Kvothe]], he's got a lot of patience.



* Series/{{Merlin|2008}} is the PluckyComicRelief of the knights who [[ButtMonkey is constantly abused for laughs]], but beneath the joking exterior is an extremely dark AntiHero who's also a PersonOfMassDestruction. Arthur and most of Camelot are unaware of this. It's also a bad idea to [[BerserkButton threaten anyone he cares about!]]

* Tony [=DiNozzo=] from ''Series/NCIS}}'' acts like an overgrown frat boy, and to some extent he is. However, much of it is ObfuscatingStupidity to keep the bad guys from realizing that he's a highly-trained agent who can ruin anybody's day if he's pissed-off enough.

** ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' gives us Adrien Agreste/Chat Noir, a wise-cracking goofball of a superhero who also happens to possess the second-most powerful [[TransformationTrinket Miraculous]] in the world and the ability to [[MakeThemRot destroy anything he touches]]. The same can also be said for the MonsterOfTheWeek The Bubbler, a ridiculous-looking supervillain who can [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway trap people in bubbles]] [[LethalHarmlessPowers and punt them into orbit]].
