* Deconstructed on ''Film/DeathMachine'', which gives us BigBad Jack Dante. He is one of the most horrifying man-children ever put on screen, but he's so good at creating the kind of weapons MegaCorp CHAANK wants that the more amoral executives try to tolerate him. The deconstruction lies in that by the point the movie starts he's screwed up a bit too much for them to consider his projects practical but he's creeped them out to the point that they can't bring themselves to fire him, so protagonist Hayden Cale (the OnlySaneEmployee by virtue of being a NaiveNewcomer) decides that there's no advantage in having such a psycho around no matter what.

* [[PickACard Pick a]] ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' [[PickACard character. '''''Any''''' Scrubs character.]] And yet, they're all excellent doctors. Except for Dr Murphy, who is merely an excellent clinical pathologist on account of accidentally killing so many patients.

* David Creegan in the U.S. version of Touching Evil. After suffering from a bullet to the head, Creegan is literally missing parts of his brain; specifically those that regulate shame. Aside from that (and seizures, and order recognition issues), he's still a brilliant profiler and the place he gets hired at, the Organized and Serial Crimes Unit, he actually helped to found before he was shot. Hilariously, after about the first two episodes, despite the fact that he is the bunniest ear'ed lawyer of all, (rolling cartwheels in the middle of conversations, playing hangman in the middle of a case involving a serial killer who is called the Hangman, hugging people, laying down in the middle of the table while there's a group meeting going on, stripping and shouting in the middle of a flight, interviewing suspects for less than a minute and sending them home, playing with signs and setups, and has an acute schizophrenic as a roommate and generally acting like a two year old in a thirty year old man's body), his behavior is almost never explained to newcomers or people that they're interviewing and is hardly mentioned in the office except when it comes to his clothing. (Occasionally, Creegan will say "I have this thing" and points to his head and doesn't explain anymore than than that.) For the most part, his partner, Susan Branca (and the rest of the OSC) just rolls with his weirdness and she actually starts picking up a few bad habits of her own. Branca even uses it to her benefit ("Tell us what you know and I will totally take him home.") and more often than not, because she ''doesn't'' mention it, Creegan actually makes an effort to self-regulate around her as best he can. Don't think that she's a pushover, though, any time Creegan mentions a physical symptom, Branca is quick to go over what his limits and problems are, citing that they have a dangerous job and they need to be clear on his issues. Could be justified in the fact that as profilers, they know that traumatic brain injuries don't actually have a cure and David actually ''can't'' control himself because it's biological and not behavioral.

Added DiffLines:

** The other main characters, Gus and Juliet fit this trope as well.


Added DiffLines:

** Olivia Dunham fits this trope as well (albeit a downplayed version), but it's not as obvious because she seems normal compared to the zany Walter Bishop. [[JustifiedTrope You almost have to be in the context of the Fringe universe, however.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Every main character on the show fits this trope to some degree.

* ''TheSilenceOfTheLambs'': Dr. Hannibal Lecter is one of the most brilliant psychiatrists in the world and also a cannibalistic serial killer. It's averted in that they actually ''do'' put him in prison as soon as his "quirk" is discovered, although he continues to write articles for psychiatric publications on a regular basis. The "About the Author" blurb must be a scream.

* ''Series/TheOffice.'' Michael Scott, a regional manager at Dunder-Mifflin Paper Co., is an eccentric man-child who often says and does things inappropriate for an office setting, but is repeatedly shown to be a prodigious salesman. His superiors handle him like they're handling a child, but they tolerate his quirks and unusual methods because he makes tough sales and his branch does well even when other branches are all struggling.

** While most of the court of King's Landing cannot stand Tyrion, it's clear to everyone that he is ridiculously competent at whatever he turns his attention to. During the Battle of the Blackwater, Tyrion not only planned the defense of King's Landing, but also was responsible for wiping out nearly all of Stannis' fleet in one fell swoop. In the books, at sixteen, Tywin banned him from taking the Grand Tour of the Nine Free Cities and instead made him head of all sanitation in Casterly Rock. To spite his father, Tyrion revolutionised the drainage and sewers systems, making them work better than they had in ''centuries''.
