** In the JLA story arc 'Divided We Fall', several of the League members were [[LiteralSplitPersonality split between their civilian and superhero identities.]] Eel O'Brian, Plastic Man's civilian identity (and former thug), proved to be the driving force that led to the resolution of this situation, as the others either didn't want to return to their superhero identities or were going mad without them. Bruce Wayne, in particular, was growing increasingly psychotic without Batman as an outlet for his rage, forcing Eel to pistol-whip him into submission (which, after all was said and done, even Batman himself considered to be a wise move, given the circumstances).

** If you're not aware, Zibarro was what happened when Bizarro Superman decided everyone on Earth should have a Bizarro-clone; Superman lives on Earth, so he has Bizarro Superman, but Bizarro lives on Earth, so he has Bizarro Bizarro: Zibarro.

* ThePunisher sees himself as this, in a world where criminals buy, lie, or threaten their way our of paying the price for their actions and superheroes see nothing wrong with battling the same opponents over and over again. Of course, seeing himself is one way of avoiding looking at himself too closely.

** 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.
