* Cloud in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is a weird and unpleasant person with a cool-guy JerkassFacade, suspiciously spotty memories and a tendency to have head-grabbing freakout episodes at strange times. He's so good at being a leader that everyone trusts him anyway, and push him to carry on even when he flat out tells them that if he does he'll end up going crazy. Even after he's revealed to have been a delusional liar who never really had any of his real credentials, the party is eager to have him back as a leader and overlook it when he starts threatening to dognap Shinra dogs or having claustrophobic panic attacks in submarines.

* In ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'', considering that most of the cast are consisting of people with an exceptional talent in a specific skill, several examples crop up across the series. A lot of characters are flat-out weird with lots of personality quirks that tend to get rather interesting, such as Gundham Tanaka, who stylizes himself as a sort of EvilOverlord despite being a relatively noraml pet breeder, yet even with said personality quirks, they are still considered ultimates for a reason, so this trope is in full effect.

* Discussed in ''You're Stepping on My Cloak and Dagger'' by Roger Hall. An OSS agent roughs up a supply officer [[LooseLips who's blabbing about an upcoming mission in a pub]]. He than advises Hall (who already has a reputation as a MilitaryMaverick) against doing something like that himself. Anyone working in a cushy job like the supply officer [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections would have connections]], and while the OSS agent can get away with such stunts because of his extensive behind-the-lines experience, a new officer like Hall would get in a lot of trouble.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Sandor Clegane is a rather dark example. Sandor is a member of the Kingsguard despite refusing to become a knight (he's the first non Knight to ever join) and wear the Kingsguard uniform, he is also blunt and rather crude unlike most other members. However he is such a fierce fighter that people are willing to overlook this and he is one of the most important Kingsguard members.

* In ''Series/{{CSI}}'' at least half the cast are [[DefectiveDetective deeply messed up]] despite being good at their jobs. Although downplayed in later seasons, early episodes often emphasized that this was the LVPD crime lab's ''night crew''. Shows with workplace settings often allude to a night shift, who [[TheUnseen remain off-camera]] and provide a convenient explanation for mix-ups or miscommunications. On the rare occasion that someone from the night shift appears onscreen, they may well be wearing Bunny Ears -- and if a member of the main cast works a night shift, they may be the only one NOT wearing Bunnny Ears. This is often TruthInTelevision: second (3PM to 11PM) or third (11PM to 6AM) shift hours make a normal social life very difficult and anyone who works that schedule long-term is probably a little bonkers. ''CSI'' was an entire series about those third shift oddballs.
** In a cast full of weirdos, the title definitely goes to Hodges, who starts out so mentally unbalanced that in RealLife he not only would never be allowed to work with law enforcement in any capacity, but probably wouldn't even be allowed outdoors without some kind of supervision. Even in-universe, he's had trouble holding down a job for exactly those reasons.

** Like Sherlock Holmes upon whom he was modeled, Dr. Gregory House definitely qualifies as a BunnyEarsLawyer. He uses comatose patients as cup holders, watches sports with clinic patients, avoids seeing his own patients as long as possible, has a bedside manner akin to Lex Luthor when he finally ''does'' see them, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking refuses to wear a tie]][[note]] A fun little real life note about the tie. In 2007, Britain's NHS has passed rules banning [[http://www.nctimes.com/lifestyles/health-med-fit/article_990cfc31-a3e0-538c-8be2-fba174edc1cc.html doctors from wearing long-sleeved shirts and ties]] in state-funded hospitals. The reason? Ties are worn daily but almost never washed, making them travelling petri dishes for hospital born-infections like MRSA. Perhaps House sees a way to flaunt convention and, incidentally, [[FridgeBrilliance save patient lives]]. A win-win! [[/note]], plays with his gameboy/cane/ball while his patients code, and has a running commentary on Cuddy's boobs. He is a JerkAss every chance he gets, apparently for his own entertainment. This apparently improves his thinking processes.
** This is lampshaded in ''the first episode'' when Cuddy says, word by word, '''The sonofabitch is the best doctor we have.'''

** Cuddy mentions at one point that the hospital actually has an annual budget which is basically "House is getting sued" funds, the justification being that House, while being a complete asshole loose cannon, is such a damn good doctor that the hospital doesn't really care that he apparently is threatened with legal action on a fairly regular basis.

** In the episode "Son of Coma Guy", he reveals why he became the best: During his formative years as a MilitaryBrat while in Japan, he and a friend went rock climbing where the friend ended up getting injured. When they entered the hospital through the wrong exit, they came across a janitor who for whatever reason stuck out to House; later his friend got an infection that the doctors couldn't make heads or tails out of, so they brought in an expert in the field, the janitor himself. The janitor turned out to be a member of one of the lowest grouping of Japan's cultural caste system, the ''Burakumin" (untouchable). As such despite being a fully trained doctor, the janitor couldn't get any work other than a custodian. However, because he was very good at his work, when his expertise was needed he was respected. Thus ingraining the belief that you could be the biggest JerkAss around, if you were the best people would listen.
** House isn't the only one; Doctor Amber "Cutthroat-Bitch" Volakis earned her nickname soon after being introduced. She later gains insight into the fact that since she doesn't care about being liked, she ''has'' to be right all the time, or she isn't any good to the people around her who already dislike her.

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. In larger numbers, you'd have a case for a RagtagBunchOfMisfits.

Much like the GeniusDitz, it is a strange mixture of brilliant and bizarre. Their quirks don't seem to be ''intrinsic'' to success, a la CrazyAwesome, and the unexpected quirks only tend to bother new characters who don't know them well. Compare the InsufferableGenius, whose quirk is more often just being a {{Jerkass}}. The InsufferableGenius might insist everyone address him as "sir" or "[[Series/LostInSpace Dr. Smith]]"; the Bunny-Ears Lawyer might not answer unless addressed as "Grand Duchess Abigail Chester Wilson Snapdragon Lemmywinks Brian Brain [=McFisticuffs=] the Negative 10 to the Fifth Power".

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

The latter is amazing because Bridge lacks any social graces whatsoever.
