** The Penguin, as one of the few major Batman villains who is typically considered sane (as such his sentencing would be completed at Blackgate Penn rather than Arkham), serves as this by default. When working with other villains he tends to act as a [[CloudcuckoolandersMinder mediator]], defusing arguments and ensuring everyone remains on track; however, he can become exasperated by the "eccentricities" of the other members of Batman's Rogues Gallery, and should he feel that the potential profit of the business arrangement is simply not worth the costs and risks associated with the crime at hand, that his input is being ignored, or that his life and livelihood are being groundlessly threatened by their erratic behavior, there is a strong chance he will [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere wash his hands of the endeavor]] at his earliest convenience. This goes for the [[BatmanTheAnimatedSeries animated series]], as well.

** SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is a mass-murdering, antisocial lunatic. However, his deductive reasoning and scientific knowledge are dangerously functional, his ability to predict the outcome of situations is often only foiled by [[ThePowerOfLove abstract principles]], and he even drops hints of understanding that the [[FourthWallObserver universe he lives in is fictional]]. [[DependingOnTheWriter Writer pending, of course.]]

* ''{{Nodwick}}'' frequently plays the role of OnlySaneMan to his party, having by far the greatest amount of common sense of the lot and being less bound by the ContractualGenreBlindness that seems to come naturally to adventurers. This happens in almost every standalone story they're in, but by far the most noticeable is the comic's [[http://nodwick.humor.gamespy.com/gamespyarchive/index.php?date=2011-04-24 pastiche of]] ''Literature/LordOfTheRings''.

* Ironically the initial characterization of Franchise/TheDCU's ComicBook/PlasticMan, who was a straight man (with somewhat goofy powers) in a world full of total nutbars. Every incarnation of him since has made ''him'' a total nutbar instead, or at least ObfuscatingInsanity.

* Franklin from the ''{{Peanuts}}'' comics: he is the only character not to have some sort of quirk or obsession. He is also the only person to point out exactly how weird everyone else in Charlie Brown's neighbourhood is. ''And'' - in a twist that was particularly ironic in the late 1960s - he is the only black character in the strip.

** Emp, Mindf**k or Maidman also played the sane man amongst the other capes, depending on the situation. So there we have bondage bait with a track record of always losing, a woman who survived torture from her crazy brother, lives alone on a space station and carried out a telepathic affair with another cape, and [[WholesomeCrossdresser Batman if he'd dressed as a maid.]] The Empverse is wierd...

** Ex. The Black Gang has escaped from their shared prison cell. Filemon: "''Ten'' holes in the wall. Only those idiots could have thought of that." Mortadelo and the Superintendant: "What do you mean?"
** It's more like a SanityBall between Mortadelo, Filemon and the Superintendant. The Superintendant usually holds it when he has to explain the mission, Mortadelo and Filemon take turns during it.

* In ''TwistedToyfareTheater'', Spider-Man is basically the only person in the entire world with a single lick of common sense. However, this has caused him to become so [[JadeColoredGlasses jaded]] he flat-out refuses to participate in any kind of action if he can avoid it, for example immediately taking the blue pill to go back to sleep when Morpheus offered to take him to Film/TheMatrix.
