Added DiffLines:

* The leader of ''Series/TheATeam'', Col. John "Hannibal" Smith. He's very unorthodox, in charge of the team, completely addicted to danger, comes up with brilliant and crazy plans, and is easily as crazy as [[MadHatter Murdock]], if not more so (it's just he, unlike Murdock, doesn't look like it at first glance).

** The [[MarvelCinematicUniverse film version]] is even more so; inventing AI's that [[ServileSnarker snark]] back at him.

* Jimmy James from ''NewsRadio'', although considering how crazy the rest of the cast can be, he can sometimes be seen as just the leader of a pack of lunatics to Dave Nelson's ''OnlySaneMan''.

* Judge Harry Stone from ''NightCourt''. As he points out in one episode, he might have been last on the list of people considered for becoming a judge but he was on the list nevertheless.

* Michael from the ''KnightAndRogueSeries'' is this. He does whatever he wants within the law and just smiles when people laugh at his odd idea of being a knight. Though he claims it took him a while to get used to this, and he does still care when dealing with his father or being treated like a retard.

* Kelsier from {{Mistborn}} gathered a gang of thieves to rob the resident PhysicalGod. [[spoiler: And to KillTheGod and take over the empire.]] Questions about his sanity are very commonplace.

Added DiffLines:

* Chick from ''Series/BatesMotel'' is a villainous example. He's a completely random and unpredictable guy who swings between acting creepy and sinister to kind and gentle within a few minutes. However, he's also a GenreSavvy gun runner who planned out a combination of a UriahGambit ''and'' a XanatosGambit.

'''The Wonka''' is the genius nut who should, by all logic, be fired. That's never going to happen -- the Wonka ''runs'' the show.

* Miss Frizzle of TheMagicSchoolBus. Everyone knows she's unconventional, and she seems to love that label. She regularly takes her class out on wacky and often dangerous adventures, turns them into animals, and shrinks them down to bug size (sometimes even smaller) just to teach an elementary-level science class. And yet somehow, nobody ever gets hurt and everybody always learns something. Huh.

* Mr. Roarke (Ricardo Montalban) of ''Series/FantasyIsland''. The charming host of Fantasy Island and his staff invite you to spend a weekend on his exotic island where you can live your wildest fantasy. Roarke can accomplish this by working in mysterious ways or very mundane means such as a talented actors playing whatever roles the charade fantasy requires, all aided by Roarke having intelligence on his clients that rivals the NSA. He is accompanied by his companion, a cherubic assistant named "Tattoo." While the island's staff does their utmost to fulfill each guest's fantasy, Mr. Roarke does insist on one thing: he alone makes every decision on his island and those decisions are final. 'The customer is always right?' Not here. Roarke will give you what you want, but be careful for what you wish for. He gives his guests their ultimate fantasy in the form of a moral lesson, and he offers it in the hopes that his guests leave better persons. He is always on hand to offer daunted guests encouraging advice as he simultaneously manipulates them to seek out their greatest fantasies. Just who is he? Tattoo: "Some people call him...''points folded prayer hands heavenward''...some people calls him...''points prayer hands downward''...I just call him Mr. Roarke."[[labelnote:However...]]at one point Roarke did confront the Devil...and told him never to set foot on Fantasy Island again.
