* Armani Dove, son of [[spoiler: Artemis]], in ''FanFic/BrokenBow'' is a PopCulturedBadass, incredibly socially awkward, and DeadpanSnarker enough to go toe-to-toe with [[Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians Percy Jackson]] in SnarkToSnarkCombat. He also has a self-taught PsychicBlockDefense and is a master archer, expert swordsman and hand-to-hand combatant, and has [[spoiler: all the powers of a Hunter, except more so, given his nature as the son of Artemis]].

* In Film/ACivilAction Jerome Facher, played by Creator/RobertDuvall is an eccentric old lawyer, who is a huge baseball fan, to the point of playing with a ball during a conference call with a co-defendant's attorney in a serious case, always uses an old briefcase, with a cartoon character sticker on it, which keeps breaking up and that he keeps repairing with huge amounts of duct tape, even in the courtroom during an hearing. But, believe us, he is also the kind of lawyer every sensible defendant would like to have on his side.

There are lots of Bunny-Ears Lawyers out there (we had to make subpages because of how many), mainly because having the character be an expert allows the writers to plausibly put them in any situation they want while the quirks make the characters interesting and unique. There is some TruthInTelevision to this trope--[[AluminumChristmasTrees we had a whole Real Life section for them]]! Authorities in educational or professional environments will sometimes ignore quirks, especially if they don't have any relevance to the degree or job at hand. While you're unlikely to see something as extreme as an actual bunny ears-wearing lawyer, you ''will'' find plenty of examples of people who remain employed despite their personal peculiarities.

A form of UltimateJobSecurity. For situations where the strange guy is the one in charge (and uses their strange behavior to run their business) see TheWonka. Uniformed examples may overlap with the MilitaryMaverick. Not to be confused with the AmbulanceChaser, though they may overlap in some cases.

cases. Contrast ConsummateProfessional, who will care about their behavior and appearance as much as their work discipline and skill.



This trope is only for those who are ''employed'' by other people. If someone's ''boss'' is like this, chances are it's TheWonka.

** It should also be noted that the books are told from the point of view of an UnreliableNarrator who's rather arrogant: FridgeBrilliance sets in once one realizes that ''every single one of his classes'' that we see actually contains useful messages-you just have to be willing and able to look beneath the surface and understand what he's actually teaching.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/IAmNotASerialKiller'' has the SociopathicHero, John, particularly when collaborating with an FBI strike team in book four. He's a skinny, snarky teenager who often holes up alone and insomniatic, reacts to corpses like a little girl would to ponies, and generally acts like he doesn't have a care in the world. He's also a dedicated investigator and a prodigy in criminal psych and strategy.


Added DiffLines:

* [[Creator/RickRiordan Percy Jackson]] is this, particularly when observed from the outside. It's highlighted in ''The Son of Neptune'', in which he pieces together a history of Camp Jupiter based on information scattered through Frank's dinner conversation. Hazel explicitly does a mental double-take, as his [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny ditzy]] and flippant tendencies are turned UpToEleven by LaserGuidedAmnesia.

* [[WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers]]: This trope is actually invoked twice: once when Bob is having a dream sequence where he's on trial and his lawyer is Louise, complete with her pink bunny hat. The second time is when Louise is made a defense attorney for her school's mock trial. Despite failing miserably in Bob's dream sequence, she's actually a pretty damn good lawyer in-universe.
