[[folder: Avatar The Last Airbender ]]

* ''FanFic/BringMeAllYourElderly'' has movie!Zhao, who is '''In possession of knowledge from the Super Secret Spirit Library!!!'''... erm, slightly more unhinged than usual.


[[folder: Webcomic/Axis Powers Hetalia ]]

* Mattie ("The lamp, by the way, is a terrible conversationalist") and Gilbert ("may or may not be wearing only a cape right now") in PartRightHalfWrongAThirdCrazy.


[[folder: Comic Strip/Calvin And Hobbes ]]

* For a moment, [[ComicStrip/CalvinandHobbes Calvin]] in the fanfic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4893134/1/Theories_About_Nuclear_Winter# Theories About Nuclear Winter]] when talking to Susie Derkins about [[MakesSenseInContext working on a shrimp farm in Florida, and wondering if they farm crabs]].
-->"I'm going to work on a shrimp farm. Or something. Some kind of farm. Do they farm crabs? I mean, they must. It's not like crabs just walk into the grocery store. Though I guess they could if they wanted to. Wouldn't that be funny? I don't know, maybe not. But I guess if I was farming crabs I might get pinched. What?"
* Socrates of ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'', who listens to ''heavy metal music'' to get to sleep.


[[folder: Crossovers ]]

* FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi features Cerasse- one of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad fairy sisters]]. She has a thing for Tserk, one of Ami's minions... A [[MultiArmedAndDangerous tentacle monster]]- to the extent that she has a great deal of trouble prepareing calimari ("Oh, I can't! The poor little tentacles!"). When the sisters contemplate 'rescueing' Jadeite from Mercury, she is quick to volunteer that they ought to rescue Tserk as well, earning her some ''strange'' looks...
* In ''Fanfic/TeenageJinchurikiShinobi'', Michelangelo is the only one not disturbed by Jiraya and Gai's poses and behaviorisms, something of which the latter was enough to make Naruto warn his team to not look.
* In ''FanFic/HuntingTheUnicorn'', Nick of the Warblers is a HotBlooded [[TheStoner stoner]] who's prone to strange logic despite his general intelligence. He has "three definitions of truth" according to Wes, his ComingOutStory at sixteen involved getting drunk ''and'' high after his mother kicked him out, and when his best friend Jeff is upset at being [[LockedOutOfTheLoop the last one to find out about his bisexuality,]] Nick offers to pretend it didn't happen yet. Jeff's response is [[CaptainObvious "Nick, you can't]] ''[[CaptainObvious redo]]'' [[CaptainObvious coming out!"]]


[[folder: Franchise/Harry Potter ]]

* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5371934/1/ All the Dementors of Azkaban]]'' Harry is depicted as nearly as much of a Cloudcuckoolander as Luna, from trying to "make friends" with Dementors by offering them chocolate to painting Azkaban pink at Luna's request to cheerfully running errands in Diagon Alley for prisoners like the Lestranges.
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7508449/1/Session_Transcripts Session Transcripts]]'' brain damage from more-abusive-than-canon treatment by the Dursleys results in Harry being extremely Cloudcuckoolander-ish when he shows up at Hogwarts, spouting random remarks like "I can't eat a table, but I tried to eat my door once because I was so hungry. It didn't taste very good and I chipped a tooth." and "Plants talk to me sometimes, but sometimes they're allergic to me and I make them sneeze."


[[folder: Webcomic/Homestuck ]]

* Ganmed Lomust in {{Hivefled}}. Spacey, ObliviouslyEvil subjugglator who writes truly terrible fanfiction. One of the more popular fantrolls, probably for this exact reason.


[[folder: Disney/The Lion King ]]

* ''Fanfic/TheLionKingAdventures''
** Pori, Zazu's [[spoiler: LoveInterest in Series Four]], is a hyperactive, insane hornbill. [[spoiler: [[UndercoverCopReveal It turns out she's faking it, though.]]]]
-->'''Zazu:''' If I had a mango, and you had a mango, then how many mangos would that be altogether?
-->''(Pori just stares at Zazu, smiling.)''
-->'''Pori:''' I like mangos!


[[folder: Western Animation/My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic ]]

* ''FanFic/HarmonyTheory'': Blaze's speeches are enough to make some fans suspect him to be Pinkie's descendant.
* ''Fanfic/ABriefHistoryOfEquestria'' mentions that most contemporary portrayals (mainly Hearth's Warming Eve pageants) of Chancellor Puddinghead are severely downgraded from the original, whose behavior bordered on TheCaligula mixed with Groucho Marx. In other words, when Pinkie Pie was ranting about 'thinking inside the chimney' and wearing a map on her face, she was trying very hard to be solemn and dignified.
* ''FanFic/TheChangelingOfTheGuard'': Exiled changeling protagonist Idol Hooves, having spent most of his life in TheHive and being mostly ignorant as to how the outside world works, has some very strange ideas and thought processes, some of which threaten to expose him for what he truly is. He genuinely has no idea what things like jail cells and cement are, and takes a leisurely stroll through an ancient booby-trapped crypt [[AchievementsInIgnorance without realizing that the traps are supposed to be deterring him]].


[[folder: Franchise/Star Wars ]]

* [[BountyHunter Gahmah Raan]] (no, not the author) in ''[[FanFic/StarWarsParanormalitiesTrilogy Star Wars: Paranormalities]]''. Starting with his debut in [[http://gahmahraan.deviantart.com/art/Paranormalities-Episode-I-Chapter-9-Hunters-308997761 Chapter 9]] of Episode I, he just comes off as an eccentric [[TheStoner Spice addict]], [[FourthWallObserver is aware of things no one ele would be aware of]], and annoys the other bounty hunters on the same contract. However, [[BunnyEarsLawyer he is by no means incompetent]], as by the end of the bounty hunter arc, he had eliminated nearly all of his competition and captured his target, lure Zolph Vaelor over to Maesterus, and match Zolph in a duel that ends in a stalemate. Still doesn't keep from being fascinated by things like Maesterus's wings and asking if he can keep them.


[[folder: Suzumiya Haruhi ]]

%%* [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Kyouko]] in ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled'' combines this with TheDitz.


[[folder: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ]]

* The ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' fanfic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4942679/1/The_Long_Walk The Long Walk]]'' has Leonardo musing on the OriginalCharacter Breech Loader, thinking about what it must be like to have to ''try'' to be normal. Breech Loader is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} with a badly warped appoach to grasping normality, and a tendency to 'lose it' at the most inappropriate of times. As a quote from the story itself:
--> ''Trying'' to be normal. He wondered what that was like; to ''try'' to be normal. Most people were normal, or normality came naturally. Or behaved however they saw as normal. Even most crazy people thought they were normal. Breech was ''trying'' to mirror their behaviour to be normal, and like a mirror, it came off wrong. Identical in every way, but somehow wrong; a facade, an illusion. What must it be like, to have to ''try'' to be normal?


[[folder: Others ]]

%%* flintlockEnthusiast and oceanRising qualify for this, in the ''Webcomic/Homestuck'' FanFic ''FanFic/AdultStuck''.
%%* TR from [[BHF5 BHF5]] is the premature lovechild of this and [[TheSimpsons Ralph Wiggum.]]
* ''Blog/AlwaysHavingJuice'' has the alternate universe version of Metal Sonic, whose mental faculties appear to be malfunctioning. He believes he is "The Real Sonic", and frequently tries to prove it using stripes, the true meaning of Hanukkah, and the letter F. The viewers have caught on to his nuttiness, however, thus resulting in questions such as "what is your favorite flavor of frisbee?" (for the record, it's [[http://alwayshavingjuice.tumblr.com/post/25796788563/i-choose-you Satanic Death Christ]]).
%%* [[YetAgain The Oogakari family]]. ''Dear sweet Jesus'', the Oogakari family.
* Oddly enough for a war story, Private Lenham Remer in Fanfic/TheLegacyOfTheBloodRavens is a perfect example. When he's not kicking ass with his squad, he can be found musing about subjects like [[EverythingsWorseWithBears Space Bears]], and if Space Marines can ride them.
* ''FanFic/MegaManRecut'' has Dust Man and Metal Man.
* ''FanFic/TouhouM1GrandPrix'' has several {{boke|AndTsukkomiRoutine}} that do this, to contrast with the {{straight man}}.
* The main character from [[http://percyjacksonfanfiction.wikia.com/wiki/Whispers_in_the_Dark Whispers in the Dark]], a ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' fanfiction [[SpinOffspring about the daughter of Thalia and Luke]].
* Mattie in PartRightHalfWrongAThirdCrazy is a beautiful combination of {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and DeadpanSnarker. Where would we be without his arguments with his bedside lamp, among other things?
* Tristan from ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' is a combination of a [=Cloudcuckoolander=] and a [[TheDitz ditz]]. Almost every line that he gives is an illogical non-sequitur, such as his randomly given cry of "BurnTheWitch!" and "Take off your clothes!"
** The sad thing is, these two examples are him being ''coherent'' in the context of the scene.
** More extreme examples of his [=Cloudcuckoolandiness=] include "I like pudding!" and "I farted, it's funny!"
** Marik is this and PokeThePoodle. His evil plans include pushing Yugi off a boat so that his hair will get wet and it'll take hours to dry, and borrowing Yugi's puzzle and not giving it back to him...for at least another 2 months. He also invited Dan Green to the Evil Council because he played a villain in one of the Pokemon movies, and seems to believe that there is a difference between killing someone and just 'destroying them a little'. And then there's the standard weirdness.
--->'''Marik:''' By the way, Bakura, your costume could use some work.\\
'''Bakura:''' ''... what?''\\
'''Marik:''' I mean, I don't like to criticize, but it looks like your mother made that for you!\\
'''Bakura:''' Marik, this isn't a costume. It's my ''clothes.''\\
'''Marik:''' Well, you could have done a better job is all I'm saying!\\
'''Bakura:''' A better job of WHAT?
* Momoko from ''WebVideo/WeddingPeachAbridged'':
'''Yuri:''' Wow, someone needs a nap.\\
'''Momoko:''' Is it me?\\
'''Yuri:''' No. No, it's not Momoko.
* Nappa of ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'':
-->'''Vegeta:''' Nappa! No! It's a trick!\\
'''Nappa:''' But Vegeta! Trix are for kids...
* Major Raikov in the ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' fanfic ''FanFic/{{Stray}}'' is "always the type who took sanity more as a suggestion," to the extent that Ocelot considers Raikov's PsychoElectro boyfriend to be the stabilizing influence in the relationship.
* LetsPlay/{{Raocow}} takes on a persona like this in his LetsPlay entries. See: his ''Kamek's Revenge'' LetsPlay, where he declares a fear of circles and refers to a flower that spits items when fed an egg or enemy to be "an altar to our dark flesh god".
** He has weird names for the characters of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld''. He calls Yoshi "stupid horse" even though he is a dinosaur. He calls the [[SuperMarioBros Charging Chuck]] "Football Charlie" because they are in football player uniforms.
** To quote Raocow himself: "I'M SO GODDAMN WACKY"
* Demykins from the ''KingdomHearts'' fanfic ''Fanfic/ThoseLackingSpines'' behaves in this manner, with a multitude of his lines as {{shoutout}}s to other media; when he doesn't quote from various works, he ignores the situation altogether.
** Which is also the common fanfiction depiction of regular old Demyx, because [[SturgeonsLaw 90%]] of the people who write fanfiction have absolutely no concept of what makes Demyx Demyx. Or any other character, themselves.
* Viole from the "Webcomic/TowerofGod" fanfic Dei Fabula; About to get burned by flames that can melt rods of steel in milliseconds? Ice-cream daydreaming time!
** Not to mention that prior to that, his method of getting rid of a parasite that was mind-controlling the neighbourhood's friendly firebreathing Damsel in Distress was to french kiss her as opposed to simply sticking his fingers down her throat like his canonical counterpart did.
* Farfalla The Butterfly Kitten, a prolific [[FanFic Fan-Fic]] author and creator of the [[http://www.thyla.com/ All-Ages Kirk/Spock Archive]], is clearly one of these. Just look at her ''name''. Also, only a [=Cloudcuckoolander=] could write [[http://cosmicduckling.com/spirk/gothique.html This.]] Or [[http://cosmicduckling.com/spirk/subcon.html This.]]
-->'''Farfalla's note before one FanFicHeader:''' I sometimes refer to [[SlashFic slashy]] bits in canon as 'sardines', because they're thrown like little rewarding treats to us little loyal dolphin-like fans... but that has nothing to do with this story.
* '''[[LargeHam DRACO]] [[NoIndoorVoice MALFOY]]''' in ''AVeryPotterMusical''.
** Snape is an even bigger example, especially in the Potion Master's Corner.
** And then there's Gilderoy who dreams of becoming king of the mice.
* Marty [=McSuperfly=] in CaptainGarlic's LetsPlay of ''[[http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/IWD2/ Icewind Dale 2.]]'' Watch out for him when he gets near the wisdom-enhancing items, or goes by the mushroom fields in the Underdark.
* The fan-made role-play RolePlay/DeadlyMistakes has Mathew. Given that he's also a TalkativeLoon, he provides a lot of comedy.
* EnterKenFinlayson: The titular character is viewed as one by the people of Norrisville due to his belief in the cryptozoological, the extraterrestrial and the supernatural but he really isn't. Still, many in-story believe him to be.
* Eric the Hedgehog from ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' embodies this trope. He's an IdiotSavant TalkativeLoon who loves breaking the fourth wall and talks to his weapons like they have personalities. Deconstructed later on - not only is it revealed that he's physically brain-damaged [[spoiler: due to imperfections in Maledict's cloning process]], but he's fully aware that his thoughts aren't entirely normal and has hidden crippling depression as a result.
* Ignacio "Cio" Lumbre in FanFic/SevenDevils is this trope, considering that when there was a fire, he tried to save the puppies before himself. Of course he did start the fire, and felt a little guilty.
