* [[https://youtu.be/jqKEQkN9ME8 This three-year-old boy]]'s knock-knock jokes are nonsensical even for ones coming from a toddler, going beyond even that of SurrealHumor and into an entirely different territory of their own.

* On ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', in the Strong Bad Email "[[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail91.html caffeine]]", Strong Sad becomes a hyperactive Talkative Loon after Strong Bad slips coffee into his orange juice, saying things like "I don't even watch football! I can't remember my legs!" and rambling about "wood-davers".

After tinkering with some ancient artifacts, Strong Bad is able to have an actual conversation with Homsar, and it turns out the loon is actually an eloquent speaker and quite intelligent in his native tongue. Strong Sad, however, just hears ''both'' talking in gibberish.

** Foul Ole Ron’s {{catchphrase}} "Millennium hand and shrimp" (the result of feeding a travesty generator with a Chinese restaurant menu and TheyMightBeGiants lyrics) became something the books are famous for. Due to his talking dog that [[WeirdnessCensor no one believes isn't him talking]], he has occasional [[InfallibleBabble lucid comments]] in the gibberish.

*** Another talkative loon is Mrs. Tachyon from unrelated series ''JohnnyAndTheBomb'', who used Ole Ron's catchphrase on at least one occasion (though she isn't actually mad. It's just that her mind is everywhere and everywhen at once. Her thoughts are apparently perfectly lucid).

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'':
*** Sheogorath, [[MadGod Daedric Prince of Madness]], is this in the ''Shivering Isles'' expansion. While he's capable of somewhat coherent conversation (He's the one giving you missions, so the specifics are usually decipherable), he's prone to outbursts on completely random tangents. Many of the residents of the Shivering Isles (his realm) are Talkative Loons. In fact, check the entire MadnessTropes section, there's likely someone embodying it in the Isles. The most Talkative Loon of the Isles, in this case, would be the beggar Bolwing. ("I'll kalikrak the findoo, I will. You terratet it! Gal bursten it...Raney Roo! Raney Roo!") Unless you get Big Head's fork or [[spoiler:become Sheogorath]], in which case he becomes comprehensible, and indeed, [[EloquentInMyNativeTongue quite eloquent]].

* Several points in ''Literature/{{Paprika}}'', when characters are being pulled into dreaming even while awake, they recite non sequitur phrases in a loud and usually delighted voice. When the dreams get out of control, this phenomenon affects part of a city, driving its members to form a parade.

* Happy Noodle Boy from Jhonen Vasquez's ''ComicBook/JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac'' can often be found standing in the middle of a park, yelling nonsense at anyone he comes across.
* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'': Delirium of the Endless. Always. Often to glorious or heartbreaking effect.
* Starman of the ''ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'' (formerly Star Boy of the ''Comicbook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}''), who actually lives in a sanitarium, though he has his moments of lucidity. Apparently he'd been schizophrenic from the start, but had the benefit of 31st-century medicine when he was a Legionnaire that completely suppressed it. It doesn't help that he has knowledge of the 21st century from a historic perspective, or that Dream Girl filled his head with prophetic information, or that time travel can screw with the sanest minds. [[spoiler:Or that he's one of the few people who can navigate the newly formed multiverse.]]
* Marvel antihero {{Deadpool}} is one of these; it's at least partially due to MediumAwareness and it's one of his combat tactics. Opponents get distracted because he never stops talking.
** Another part of it is due to him being a CrazyAwesome CloudCuckoolander who deliberately overplays his "lunatic" role... some of the time.
*** Just how much of it is [[TrashTalk deliberate]] and how much is him actually drifting off varies from writer to writer, but it's almost invariably some combination of the two.
* Related to Deadpool there's [[Comicbook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool Gwenpool]], who is always talking nonsense (or what appears to be nonsense given she's [[TrappedInTVLand an immigrant from a world where Marvel is fictional]], and thus has MediumAwareness).
* ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' villain Typhoid Mary, especially when written by Brian Bendis, has lines such as "No, you're the shmoopie," and "it's the spiders that make me horny." She also sings a chilling rendition of Monday Monday while slaughtering mobsters.
** Incidentally, when she got a crush on Deadpool in his first ongoing, she ''[[TooSpicyForYogSothoth freaked him out]]''.
* The ComicBook/GreenGoblin. Especially when written by Bendis.
** I own your soul now!
** Circles! Circles of life, circles of death, circles of pain, circles of love, circles of power, circles of fire, Tell him about the circles! Bood Lood Cellar Door! The null mutant will be inactive at all temperatures!
*** Of course, that was [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan Ultimate Green Goblin]] who is not only psychotically insane but at the time was also completely fucked up on his own [[FantasticDrug Oz formula]]. Half of the above dialogue was him ranting at Spider-Man, the other half was the voices in his head talking to ''him.''
