* Bartz in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' is much more normal than his companions--an amnesiac old goofball, a crossdressing pirate, and a recklessly altruistic princess. Granted, he has his moments too, but he's usually the one not involved in whatever high melodrama the others are engaging in.

* Invoked with Squall Leonhart from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', who is a character who thinks ''he'' is the OnlySaneMan. Considering his past and his views on relationships with others, not to mention that he ''is'' surrounded by a rather quirky mixture of people, and it's not hard to see why he feels this way. [[spoiler:In reality, he has suffered from memory loss from Guardian Force usage and his personality is built around how a child believes an adult should act. The real Only Sane Man in the party is [[ObfuscatingStupidity Irvine]].]]
* Sazh Katzroy from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' is very sane even if he does wear a chocobo on his head. He's just a civilian pilot dragged along with the vengeful, guilt-ridden, and actively delusional members of their little gang of the doomed.

** Wol in ''VideoGame/MobiusFinalFantasy'', due to being a BlankSlate, is the only person who appears to be aware of how weird Palamecia is and how he's being [[PinballProtagonist railroaded by the plot]] into [[ChronicHeroSyndrome doing stupid things]]. He mostly expresses this with good-natured [[DeadpanSnarker brutal sarcasm]].

* By some weird twist of fate, the [[BloodKnight Doom]][[{{Jerkass}} Guy]] in ''VideoGame/Doom2016]] is one of these, compared to the other humans and the [[MegaCorp UAC]] as a whole. He doesn't buy any of the shit [[WellIntentionedExtremist Hayden]] feeds him about why they [[spoiler: started using Hell as an energy source]] and constantly destroys the equipment needed to extract Argent Energy to Hayden's anger and annoyance. Yes, he's effectively going to cause an energy crisis the likes have never been seen before on Earth... but considering what happened on Hell ''it's definitely for the better''.

* Lately, BioWare has made your starting male human party member the only really rational one of the bunch.

** Them being the only relatively sane people in the town is justified: [[spoiler:They are the only real people in it. Steve's sanity slippage is also justified, since the entire point of the simulation is to drive him crazy.]]

* In the bonus chapter of ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'', an alternate Neku Sakuraba finds himself (forced into) joining a group of "Kindred Spirits" consisting of; Shooter (Red), the leader and INCREDIBLY passionate about a children's game involving pins banging against each other; Shiki (Green), a Eiji Oji fangirl; Beat (Yellow), who is just there for the food; and Joshua (Pink/Rainbow), who is apparently connected to individuals as high-class as the flipping MAYOR while also spouting lines that push the fourth wall just a tad. Neku, who has "Blue" tacked onto him, often spends the whole time just weirded out by his companions' antics. Although, to the be fair, the entire reason he pursued Tin Pin that day was to "resist his emo urges", so his case might just be relative.

* ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' has a huge cast of characters across more than a dozen games. Out of all of these, Linda from the second ''Outbreak'' game, is the '''only''' Umbrella scientist who isn't shown to be corrupt, insane, or a complete {{Jerkass}}.

* ''VideoGame/ProfessorLayton'': As Layton can be a bit of an EccentricMentor occasionally, being always a step ahead and obsessed with puzzles, this role is more fitting of his apprentice, Luke, whom most players can relate to admist of all the absurdities. At times when Layton suggests a puzzle, he will lampshade this and point out that maybe it isn't the time for that (which it truly isn't).
