* The principal in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' is a somewhat {{downplayed}} example. Generally he acts sane and rational, but one has to wonder why the boss of the world's most prestigious superhero school is a... giant mouse? Ferret-bear? He doesn't even have a super power, per se, he's just a super-intelligent and hard-to-identify UpliftedAnimal. His MaskOfSanity slips quite a bit when he plays the role of a villain for the final exam, [[EvilLaugh gleefully]] smashing ConvenientlyEmptyBuildings with a wrecking ball.

* ''Manga/MadeInAbyss'': Becoming a top-ranked "White Whistle" cave-diver seems to require this type of personality. Lyza is (or was) at the low end of the scale, but she's still a BloodKnight (her nickname is "The Annihilator") and weirdly lackadaisical, or even masochistic, about the dangers and horrors of the Abyss (she got ''excited'' when she heard the next area would make her bleed from every orifice). Ozen, Lyza's mentor and operator of an outpost partway down the pit, seems to want to help the heroes... [[GoodIsNotNice in some sense]]. Shortly after meeting them she beats the crap out of them both, ostensibly to [[DrillSergeantNasty prove they weren't ready]] to travel deeper on their own, but she admits to enjoying it a little too much. And then there's Bondrewd, a MadScientist who gets away with all sorts of atrocities thanks to his high status.

* Yu Narukami, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/Persona4'', is generally regarded to be the quirkiest protagonist in the series. He delights in trolling the people around him, can spend entire days at a time petting stray cats, will attempt to ''eat grass'' if given a chance, spends huge amounts of money on strange costumes to wear into dungeons, and more. Other characters frequently state that they don't understand how his thought processes work, and even the fans can't work out if he's being a weirdo on purpose or just so [[TheComicallySerious comically serious]] that he doesn't realise that what he's doing is odd. Nevertheless, Yu is an extremely powerful Persona-user and a naturally charismatic leader. He's persuasive and his weirdness gets good results, so he remains in charge of the Investigation Team.

** The Doctor [[SeenItAll has saved and ended worlds countless times]], yet acts like an overexcited Jack Russell who's been locked in the cellar for too long, leaping backwards and forwards between [[{{Technobabble}} highly technical, rapid-fire explanations]] to "[[BuffySpeak It's my timey-wimey detector. It goes ding when there's stuff.]]" Occasionally they will calm down long enough to feel sorry for themself, but once the crisis is averted, the chuntering is switched back on and off they zoom again, their imagination running berserk. This could apply to ''any'' [[TheNthDoctor incarnation of the Doctor]]. They've ranged from an archetypal {{Trickster}} to a bit of an old grump, but on a level they're always the same lovable, ineffable weirdo. Bonus points for also doubling as InexplicablyAwesome, as we really have no idea how they ended up this way, but their logic always saves the day (after a while of alien happenings and running). For instance, in ''Terror of the Vervoids'' where the best way the Sixth Doctor can think of to combat a plant race is to accelerate their life-cycle.
** The John Simm incarnation of The Master, who was a closer EvilCounterpart than usual--dancing around to the ScissorSisters whilst trying to destroy the world, for instance. He kept it up even while pretending to be a human politician, mocking the [=US=] President and quoting Little Britain in a speech to the nation.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timothy_Dexter Timothy Dexter]] may have been one. Among other things, he successfully sold warming pans and mittens in tropical areas, and made a great profit shipping coals to Newcastle. While one might argue that he is merely an extremely lucky {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, considering how unfailingly he managed to profit from the weirdest endeavours, it seems there must have been ''some'' system to his madness.

* Dave of ''CivilProtection'' is prone to doing whatever random thing comes into his head, like pretending to be a ninja because he's bored. He does seem to be the smarter of the two main characters, though, and he knows a lot of random trivia (often about dangerous things, like how to make napalm).
