Usually a fun character, and a little cartoonish, though it can also be played tragically (this is how it usually goes when TheMadHatter's illness is organic in origin) as a character is overcome by the knowledge that they are losing their mind and are powerless to stop it.

Archetype is named for the character from ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', who, like most of Wonderland's residents, knew just how crazy he was, and had decided to just sit back and enjoy it. Carroll's Mad Hatter is in turn a reference to the tendency of Victorian era hatters to go mad. "As mad as a hatter" was even a common phrase at the time. The actual cause of the phenomena was the presence of mercury in the solution used by hatters to shape and form the felt. The hatter would inhale and ingest trace amount of mercury during his work and eventually suffer from mercury poisoning, leading to dementia and death. Contrary to popular belief, Carroll never actually refers to the character as "the Mad Hatter" in the book; he is simply called "the Hatter".

* Jan Valentine of ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' fits the trope, sociopathically so. Despite being the loopy one compared to his brother, Luke, Jan is the superior soldier and sets off the fall of the Hellsing Organization for no real clear motivation except that he thinks it might be fun to do so. Millenium kills him for divulging information, but even so he goes out screaming, laughing, and flipping the bird.

* ''{{Deadpool}}'' occasionally describes himself as an "addled moron", although it's never clear how much he's pretending to be stark staring mad and how much of it is ''actually'' being stark staring mad.
** DependingOnTheWriter, of course. Considering a couple of times has him with three different thought bubbles going, each with seperate personalities? Not MUCH is pretending during those interpretations.
*** It's really hard to put Deadpool in any one category when it comes to this, what with being Ax-Crazy, borderline Cloudcuckoolander, aware of the fourth wall, extremely genre savvy, and just plain insane 100% of the time. The voices in his head often display awareness of events and information that Deadpool himself could not possibly be aware of, and continually act as "white noise" in his head, making it even harder for him to focus on any one thing.
** An actual in-universe reasoning for the changes in "how" crazy Deadpool is: since his healing factor is out of control (his body is somewhat accurately described as "walking talking cancer") even his BRAIN is rewiring itself with some regularity. Of course, then there's the fact that he's one of the few that completely ignores the fourth wall; he may have learned about the fact that he's in a comic book and, while he loves it, he [[GoneMadFromTheRevelation may have been affected.]]
* ''ComicBook/TheCreeper'', especially in his later versions where his insanity basically kept Ryder sane or was tempting and fun for him.

* In a ''Comicbook/BatmanBeyond'' storyline where the future Justice League faced their equivalent of the [[MirrorUniverse Justice Lords]], this was interestingly played with by Justice Lord Flash. It was previously established that regular universe Danica Williams hears the voices of the Flashes that have entered the speed force. EvilTwin Danica is utterly contemptious of this idea, which regular Danica initially thinks is because she can't hear the voices. Evil Danica retorts that she hears ''lots'' of voices -- she assumes this is because she's crazy and her counterpart is just too weak to accept this. At the end of the story which of them was right was actually unresolved.
