* Similarly, in ''{{Theatre/Hamilton}}'', Aaron Burr, Alexander Hamilton, and Thomas Jefferson each see themselves as this. George Washington actually ''is''.

* Underling in ''Theatre/TheDrowsyChaperone'' is ''easily'' the most sane character in the show: the bride convinces her fiance to cheat on her with herself, the groom goes rollerblading blindfolded after being told that tap dance is too dangerous, the Chaperone poses as the bride in order to be seduced, Tottendale has the memory of a goldfish, Kitty uses fake telepathy to trick Feldzieg into marrying her (''and it works'') ,and so on. Even the Man in the Chair gets in on the insanity by joining Janet in ''Bride's Lament''. Underling, by contrast, is a ServileSnarker who is barely able to keep the wedding together.

* In the first act of ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical'', Hermione frantically tries to convince the other characters that the House Tournament is dangerous, but their reaction is pretty well summed up by Harry's line: "Duh, Hermione, I'm the Boy Who ''Lived'', not ''Died''". Later on, in the second act (after Hermione has been proved right), Harry gets a turn: Voldemort has returned, but whenever he tries to talk about it with someone, they change the subject to their love lives..

* ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix'' has UsefulNotes/JohnAdams often beliving himself to be this in his unceasing push for Congress to vote for independence. The problem is that he's obnoxious and disliked by near every other delegate regardless of which side of the vote they're on - Creator/BenjaminFranklin calls him out on it because Adams' attitude demeans the accomplishments of the other delegates.

* ''{{Hamlet}}'''s Horatio is the only person in Elsinore who isn't caught up in the emotional turmoil surrounding Hamlet's supposed madness, as {{lampshaded}} by Hamlet himself: "Give me that man that is not passion's slave, and I will wear him in my heart's core, ay, [[HoYay in my heart of heart]]." As a result, he's [[spoiler: the only one alive at the end.]]

* In ''HMSPinafore'' the role falls to Dick Deadeye. Of course, since he's [[BeautyEqualsGoodness ugly]], [[EvilCripple hunchbacked]] and [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast named Dick Deadeye]] no-one listens to him, even when he's making common-sensical statements like "It's a queer world". In fact, at one point he manages to turn the rest of the crew's opinion right around ''by agreeing with them''.
