** Was somewhat implied in Colonel Potter's first scenes, showing him arriving with a cavalry saddle. He proceeded to order Klinger out of his Section 8 dresses and into uniform and prove himself in the OR.


Added DiffLines:

*** Ultimately averted after the agency purchases an IBM mainframe that he accuses of giving off electromagnetic waves persuading men to become gay. He professes his love for Peggy and gives her a box with his own nipple in it. He's hauled out of the office restrained to a stretcher.

* OldManHenderson, a character from a CallOfCthulhu session (arguably being played by another BEL). A half-insane habitual drug user with a stuffed parrot permanently affixed to his shoulder who starts investigating the various eldritch cults because he thinks they stole his lawn gnomes, but by campaign's end he [[spoiler: ''kills Hastur'']].

* All the teachers of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' that the protagonist has as his personal teachers seem to be this. There's Ms. Isako Toriumi, the homeroom teacher with an almost [[Manga/DeathNote "L"-like]] addiction to sweets (especially cake) [[spoiler: and to playing [=MMORPG=]s as a l33t-speaking alter ego, in which guise she grants the Hermit social link and even forms a crush on the player]]. There's Mr. Edogawa, the school nurse with his over-the-top obsession with mysticism that causes him to insist on making the player drink useless potions when seen for treating ailments and who derails the classes he subs for to give lectures of magic. There's Mr. Edo, the history teacher who always wears his Sengoku-era samurai helmet and geeks out about samurai all the time -- like constantly complaining about having to teach history prior to the Sengoku-era, because there's no samurai to talk about. And then there's Ms. Miyahara, the math teacher who spends most of the class just gushing about the aesthetic beauty of numbers. They're all shown as very knowledgeable, and they're all various shades of {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', though, there's only two such kooky teachers, and they are far less bizarre. An older gentleman who likes to teach with a little hand puppet of himself, and a female history teacher, Ms. Sofue, who always wears an Egyptian pharaoh's headdress and carries a ceremonial crook. She's actually the sister of Mr. Edo from Gekkoukan High School above, though unlike him she has a love of history in general instead of being fixated on one era, and so she carries out her lessons with general enthusiasm.

* The ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' character Pearl can become irrationally anxious to the degree of sobbing fits and has little grasp of social interaction despite being around humans and interacting with them for thousands of years. It says ''a lot'' about Pearl's skills in combat (and engineering, and piloting, and dancing, and music...) that none of these flaws stopped her from becoming the bodyguard of a revolutionary leader(albeit one of questionable effectiveness), a engineer capable of making spaceships and mech suits out of old junk and scrap and TheDreaded to a ProudWarriorRace. She's one of those people who just fixates on what she likes doing to the exclusion of all else.

* In the world of ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' several characters dress in costumes simply impractical or just silly for their job, but are allowed to keep them simply by virtue of being so god damn good at what they do. After all, if McCree's one of the fastest guns in the West, does it matter if he dresses like a cowboy? Or if Reinhardt wants to dress in PowerArmor with a rocket hammer, pretending to be a crusader and generally Leroy Jenkinsing all over the place, who's going to stop the 8 foot tall, 6 foot wide, musclebound German? And does it ''really'' matter if Widowmaker wears shiny purple spandex if she can hit a target at impossible range and see through walls?

Some characters have pervasive or extremely noticeable personality quirks, but remain steadily employed because they are simply just that good at what they do. Coworkers, superiors, and friends find themselves willing to overlook these informalities (e.g. a hypothetical highly successful lawyer who happens to wear fuzzy pink bunny ears during all his cases) so long as the job gets done. This is a cost/benefit ordeal: if they weren't so good at their job or their quirks were too obstructive, no employer would consider them a necessary sacrifice for sanity. Not an unusual trait in the RagtagBunchOfMisfits.

Luckily, they're never AxCrazy. Usually. For an ultra manly-man who pulls off some girly hobby and nobody minds, take a refresher in the fact that RealMenWearPink.

This trope is only for people who ''work'' for other people. If someone's ''boss'' is like this, you're probably looking at TheWonka.

* Glen Whitmann, in ''[[TransformersFilmSeries Transformers]]'', is a brilliant computer hacker, who may have ADHD and exhibits extremely erratic, perhaps sociopathic behavior. Apart from a lack of basic manners and some sort of unspecified paranoia, his great passions in life appear to be video games and getting into places he does not belong. Which could honestly be said of 90% of computer hackers. Hacking is, after all, all about getting into places you don't belong.

* [[NobleDemon Demon Prince]] Laharl from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea|HourOfDarkness}}'' is the heir to the throne of [[{{Halloweentown}} Netherworld]], and he got some strange ideas as to what a King should do: If money is needed, itís time to loot some nobleís mansion. Assassin love angels are potential recruits. Laughing evilly on a regular basis is a requirement. Ideal Overlord tasks are making it rain pepper so that the humans will sneeze their nostrils out or deprive children of their sleep by giving them addictive video games. Heroes should not just be defeated; enslavement is the way to go. But he is very passionate and dutiful about the job, not to mention extremely powerful, so he gets it and does a good job all things considered. His [[ReliableTraitor vassel]] Etna has not dethroned him...yet.
