* In ''Literature/NumeroZero'', Maia Fresia has many childlike mannerisms and a penchant for saying things that randomly pop into her head, out of context. One of her colleagues speculates that she has a mild form of autism; the protagonist says that he was "finding her autism, if that's what it was, more and more delightful".

A coveted and well-tended accessory of a character that makes him attractive or at least interesting to other characters, if only in his own head. This can be anything: a well-groomed mustache, a bizarre body part, a favorite hat, a personality trait, or [[BowtiesAreCool a bow tie]]. For maximum humor, the actual draw of the item may be completely non-intuitive to the audience, but [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike make perfect sense]] to whatever minor passerby appears on the show.

At some point in the story the character invariably loses it (or [[BrokenTreasure someone else does]]) and rapidly becomes inept or clumsy at whatever he usually does with ease, while everyone notices something is 'off' about him. Thus the item takes on a MagicFeather effect, even when he's reassured by the cast it shouldn't make any difference. Whether or not he learns {{an Aesop}} about it has no effect in his immediately retaking it once it's accessible again.

* An episode of ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' has Giroro becoming clumsy and a lousy shot after having his trademark belt stolen. Likewise, he loses a sumo match with alien rodents by not being allowed to wear it. Later we find out it's also because he keeps a picture of Natsumi in it.

** Really, just about every character in the cast has at least one of these.



* An episode of ''RocketPower'' centers around Twister losing his cap, then claiming that it made him who he was. Just as he grew to accept the fact that he didn't need it, the cap came back.

* Mori from ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' is an odd case since his CharmPoint is another ''[[MoeCouplet character]]''. When the club tries to instruct a delinquent that a CharmPoint can work wonders for one's image, they bluntly point out that without Hani around people would see Mori as just a huge scary thug who barely talks, much to the latter's distress.
