* Crazy May Dobson promos tend to be coherent. Crazy Mary matches tend have a constant stream of squeals and grumbles that may or may not be related to anything she's doing.[[/folder]]

* The Xaositects, or Chaosmen, one of the factions in the ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'' setting for ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', talk in "Scramblespeak", where all the words are mixed up. Except when they don't - if they ''always'' did something, that wouldn't be [[ChaoticNeutral chaotic]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Odium}}'', this happens to [[spoiler:Medusa]] when he goes insane. The beginning of his rant is actually a quote from "The End" by TheDoors.

Note that this sort of behavior is [[TruthInTelevision a real symptom of certain real mental illnesses]], particularly schizophrenia (psychiatrists call this kind of talk from a schizophrenic patient "word salad" or "schizophasia") but it is far from universal, even in schizophrenics. In the real world, the insane do not, as a general rule, identify themselves quite so easily and conveniently. Of course, they might not be crazy. Just brain damaged and might be suffering from aphasia.

* Speaking of Stephen Fry, Peter Kingdom's half-sister Beatrice (on ''{{Kingdom}}'' of, course) has been characterized as this. Of course, she's just as likely to be eerily silent.
* [[MonsterClown Papa Lazarou]] on ''TheLeagueOfGentlemen''. He [[AccidentalMisnaming calls everyone "Dave"]], keeps offering to sell you pegs, adeptly speaks [[SpeakingSimlish gibberish]], spouts bizarre non sequiturs like "This is just a saga now," and will haunt your dreams forever.

* Hugo Miller from the ''{{Warehouse 13}}'' episode "13.1" is like this, as the result of a combination of LiteralSplitPersonality with BrainUploading.
