See also LethalJokeCharacter. Compare MechanicallyUnusualFighter, which is about the actual mechanics rather than the character's wacky appearance (although the two may overlap) and BewareTheSillyOnes. [[IThoughtItMeant Nothing to do with]] MonsterClown.

** Koishi Komeiji: Attacks incude bizarre nonsense such as hatching an IdeaBulb and sneezing... and you cannot spam the sneeze attack, either; try, and Koishi will catch her nose, stifling the sneeze and intercepting her own attack. Her dash animation is also quite silly, as it has her prancing. Might also count in the shmup games, considering the Freudian imagery of one of her patterns.

** Suwako Moriya: What appears to be a little girl with a weird hat and a frog obsession (actually a god). She crouches on the ground by default and moves by hopping. Her dash has her move underground. She flies through the air by flapping her arms. Relatively normal attacks, though.
** Mamizou Futatsuiwa: She's a tanuki boss, so most of her attacks involve hitting the enemy with her minions shapeshifted into various youkai or objects. Possibly an example in the shmup games as well; her patterns are bizarre.

* ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'' has [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Agitha]] and [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Tingle]]. The former is a self-proclaimed '[[FriendToBugs insect princess]]' who collects bugs and lives in her little insect-loving fantasy world, while the latter is a 35-year-old manchild who thinks he's a fairy and whose attacks involve AmusingInjuries. Lana can also count with her Summoning Gate, as her attacks with that weapon are styled after IdolSinger dance moves. ''Hyrule Warriors'' is a game based on ''Franchise/DynastyWarriors'', so [[OneManArmy they can easily mow through hordes of enemies]] and even defeat all kinds of powerful villains without too much problem.

** Several others have just plain weird movesets. Mr VideoGame[=/=]UsefulNotes/GameAndWatch fights by pulling out random equipment from his own games, pulling out things like turtles, flags, buckets, keys and other mundane things. [[VideoGame/WarioLand Wario]] is a CombatPragmatist who fights using a random assortment of wacky attacks and odd abilities, such as biting his opponent, [[GroinAttack punching them in the groin]] and ''[[{{Fartillery}} farting]]'' on them. Bowser Jr. fights in a literal clown car that's equipped with weapons like [[ThisIsADrill drills]], wrecking balls, a cannon, a ''fork'', and the clown face sticking its tongue out. And then there's Duck Hunt, a trio composed of the dog, a duck, and the unseen hunter from ''VideoGame/DuckHunt'' who use exploding tin cans and clay pigeon, can summon 8-bit cowboys from thin air to fire at their opponents, and whose [[LimitBreak Final Smash]] involves their opponents getting caught in the middle of an 8-bit shoot-out between cowboys and gangsters.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/KirbyBattleRoyale'' has Sleep Kirby, usually a [[JokeCharacter useless]] ability, as a playable character. Here, he smacks his opponents [[ImprobableWeaponUser with a pillow]], blows {{snot bubble}}s, and puts nightcaps on his opponents to put them to sleep. All the while, he's half asleep, even for the [[HappyDance victory dance]].

* ''VideoGame/PokkenTournament'' is a FightingGame using ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', so this would be expected:
** The first one to fill this role is probably the biggest UnexpectedCharacter: ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Chandelure]]'', the Luring Pokémon. It's not that strange ([[OurMonstersAreWeird by Pokémon standards mind you]]), but it's still a living ''[[AnimateInanimateObject chandelier]]'' in a FightingGame that isn't even a "unorthodox" type of game like ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''. Said 'mon is also considered one of the best characters in the roster, and in the hands of a skilled player veers on GameBreaker status.
** The ''DX Edition'' introduces another ghost Pokémon in Aegislash, a sword and shield Pokémon. Not one that fights with a sword and shield. It ''IS'' a sword and shield.

** Beginning with ''VideoGame/MakaiKingdom'', almost every NIS strategy game has Asagi, a refugee from a cancelled Nippon Ichi title known as Makai Wars. This fact is generally played for laughs as she attempts to defeat the main character of each game she visits and take over their role. Her appearance in Disgaea 2 had her reusing her Makai Kingdom sprites (making her much smaller than the rest of the cast, not to mention out of step with the game's art style) and Soul Nomad allowed you to recruit multiple copies of her by repeatedly winning her story event, allowing you to build an entire army of Asagis. Oh, and her idle animation in most of her later appearances? Enthusiastic air-guitaring.
