* Lucky from Creator/SamuelBeckett's [[{{Absurdism}} absurdist play]] ''WaitingForGodot''. There ''is'' a thread of logic running through his one monologue, but his point gets so lost in tangents, digressions, lists, PurpleProse, and general nonsense that he makes next to no sense and [[SuckinessIsPainful causes actual physical revulsion]] in his listeners.

* Part of the fun of playing a Malkavian in ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' is that all your dialog options turn you into this, with a sprinkle of MadOracle if you pay attention to what you're saying to people.

* 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).

* The daedric prince Sheogorath, ruler of the Shivering Isles in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' is a decent example. 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.
** Worth pointing out that Sheogorath is the daedric Prince (Read: God) of madness. Many of the residents of the Shivering Isles (his realm) are {{Talkative Loon}}s. In fact, check the entire MadnessTropes section, theres likely someone embodying it in the Isles. The 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]].
** There's a particular GameMod for ''Skyrim'' that replaces all the loading screen tips with... [[http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/12234/ Uncle Sheogorath's Really Helpful Hints and Tips]]. Which are about as absurdly nonsensical as you'd expect from "help" offered by the Daedric Prince of Madness.
** Also, ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' has Telvanni Councilor Therana, prone to incoherent, mind-numbingly long ramblings about random stuff from her early years. Entertaining... only problem is, [[spoiler:in the main quest, you need her vote to become the war leader of House Telvanni]]. )

* The Sheep in ''Webcomic/MrSquare'' is a TalkativeLoon. Most, if not all of his speech falls into this pattern. [[http://revfitz.com/comic/issue296/ In this comic]] he declares that the main character (who is right in front of him) was kidnapped and taken to "the twenty third century to fight the trees".

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', there are three examples:
**The Pyar gods sound like this as the power of the white key fades.
**John babbles random nonsense in the Hungry Sea; George is concerned, but Ringo dismisses it as “Just John bein' John.” [[spoiler: He's wrong.]]
**And the Last Wizard is cursed to be incoherent until someone tells her that she's cursed to be incoherent. The previous two examples were her manipulating [[spoiler: the Con Fusion, the telepathic {{MMORPG}} that the four were unknowingly in,]] so that once the four found themselves [[spoiler: back in the real world,]] they would figure out the nature of her curse and how to break it.
