** Superman can be thankful he is '''merely''' a pest most of the time. ''ComicBook/WhateverHappenedToTheManOfTomorrow'' offers a rather disturbing look at what would happen were Mr. Mxy to [[NotSoHarmless stop]] [[EldritchAbomination playing]] [[RealityWarper around]].

This character is typically based on TheTrickster (i.e. one of many "gods of mischief" from mythology, from Loki to Coyote to Puck). Often they are a ScrewySquirrel or AmusingAlien whom the heroes often regard (usually with an irritated FacePalm at his return) as more like a pest than a serious menace. Sometimes the mishaps he causes are in fact a result of his BlueAndOrangeMorality. Sometimes he's an outright {{Jerkass}} {{Troll}}, in which case the heroes eventually get enough of his pranks and set out to stop him, but he can still be dangerously destructive if confronted improperly. The powers the Great Gazoo commands are by definition plot-breaking, so he usually has to be outsmarted or outwitted in order to be defeated. A direct assault never works. [[StoryBreakerPower Don't to count on his abilities to resolve the story either]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/Ben102016'' episode, ''Xingo,'' Ben accidentally brings the titular character into his reality when he goes Upgrade to fix the TV and lightning strikes the satellite dish. Xingo, despite no longer being in his own reality, still operates ''entirely'' on [[ToonPhysics cartoon logic]]. He's [[NighInvulnerability nigh-invulnerable]], capable of seemingly unlimited [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting]], can [[RealityWarper materialize any object out of thin air]], and is at the very least Type Two [[TheOmnipotent omnipotent]]. He's also completely incapable of distinguishing between what is harmless fun and actually ''harmful'' outside of his normal cartoon reality.

* ''Franchise/CthulhuMythos'': Nyarlathotep is basically what happens when this role is played [[DarkerAndEdgier dead serious]] by [[EldritchAbomination an atrocious space god]] [[ForTheEvulz who enjoys tormenting the insects called "humans"]] as versus [[BlueAndOrangeMorality being too busy not caring]] like most of his peers.
