'''Basic Trope''': A character who has "Chaotic" (and usually Neutral, too) in their alignment overemphasizes that, and does stupid things in the name of being a CloudCuckooLander.
* '''Straight''': Mad Maxine paints her dog purple just because she can. She is very impulsive.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Mad Maxine paints ''herself'' purple and cartwheels naked in front of the BigBad just because she can. She is very impulsive, and does not (or cannot) control her impulses.
** Mad Maxine hops up onto the royal dining table in front of the king, drop her knickers, and [[TooDumbToLive takes a piss right in his face]].
* '''Downplayed''':
** Maxine paints the front of her house purple one day for no reason. And then wears a yellow dress because it goes so well with the freshly painted purple house. She always asks her neighbors if she can paint their house purple, even the king at one point, because she loves painting and still has leftover paint.
** Just for the hell of it, Maxine asks the BigBad about his favorite color.
* '''Justified''': Maxine has some kind of mental disorder or disability that prevents her from having the awareness or self-control necessary to control her impulses.
* '''Inverted''':
** LawfulStupid
** Maxine is of a {{chaotic| neutral}} [[ChaoticGood moral]] [[ChaoticEvil alignment]] as well as a very focused, [[TheSpock intelligent, rational, and unimpulsive]] woman who makes clever schemes in the name of intellectual pursuits and rebels because she spent so much time deconstructing and analyzing rules that she sees right through them. So she, not only is she smart, but rebellious because of it. As opposed to a ChaoticStupid character, who is portrayed as just plain old chaotic because they're stupid.
* '''Subverted''':
** Mad Maxine can be impulsive and [[CloudCuckooLander wacky]], but is capable of controlling her impulses when the situation calls for it.
** Mad Maxine is a BunnyEarsLawyer
* '''Double Subverted''': Most of the time. This time, however, she took off her clothes in the middle of a battle and did cartwheels in front of the BigBad just because she felt like it.
* '''Parodied''': Mad Maxine's behavior gets her StuffedIntoTheFridge. Or PutOnABus. AndThereWasMuchRejoicing.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Sometimes Maxine is a loony, other times, she appears to be a perfectly sane, reasonable, high-functioning, intelligent, well-behaved member of the team.
* '''Averted''': Maxine is not stupid.
* '''Enforced''': "Lets show how crazy Maxine is. Having her break rules for no reason is a good way."
* '''Lampshaded''': "Um, wow. Mad Maxine sure lives up to her name there, Pal."
* '''Invoked''': The DM has this campaign [[{{Railroading}} on the rails]] and the other players are a bunch of {{Munchkin}}s. [[TheLoonie Maxine's player]] has damn well had enough of this. She CAN play a more rational character, even a more rational ChaoticNeutral character, but when everyone else is so serious, [[RuleOfFun where's the fun in being logical?]]
* '''Exploited''': Mad Maxine's enemy chucks a fish at her, hoping she'll be distracted and run off to dance with it or something.
* '''Defied''': Mad Maxine is [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone ashamed of her behavior in the past]], and does the best she can to control her impulses for the good of the party she's with now so she won't be "that" person again.
* '''Discussed''': Mad Maxine's behavior is going to get her in trouble. Not to mention [[TheScrappy she's annoying!]]
* '''Conversed''':
-->"Mad Maxine is crazy!"
-->"What would you expect from 'Mad' Maxine."
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Mad Maxine acts this way because she wants attention. ''Any'' attention. She's also bored and wants to shake things up a little.
** Mad Maxine's antics distract and annoy her teammates while having little to no effect on their enemies. She also can't be depended on to fulfill her role in ThePlan or even in battle. As a result, the team's first battle with the BigBad [[TotalPartyKill doesn't go so well]].
** Mad Maxine is an utterly broken individual. Whether it's because she [[GoMadFromTheRevelation saw something she shouldn't have]], or [[DespairEventHorizon life simply broke her down]], she's decided that ultimately, the only thing in the world that matters even slightly are her own whims, because they're the only things that are 'real'. Her motto is to 'live without fear or regret', meaning shutting down her senses of self-preservation and empathy for others and doing whatever strikes her fancy at any given time without hesitation. Sometimes it's harmless, other times she commits acts of [[MoralEventHorizon astonishing villainy]].
* '''Reconstructed''': Maxine learns when it's OK to do crazy things, and when it's not. She might still exhibit impulsive behavior, but will stop if asked or reminded.
* '''Plotted A Good Waste''': The story starts with a number of heroic characters on a journey. There's a KnightInShiningArmor, a [[ThePaladin Paladin]], and a [[TheBeastmaster Beastmaster]] who are all strong and majestic, striding through a forest with the sun on their faces and the wind in their hair... and a ChildMage who keeps summoning a bunch of stupid fish, turning things purple, and summoning slime to fall on her teammates. Then it turns out we're seeing a dramatization of a TabletopRPG, and she's the AnnoyingYoungerSibling who insisted on joining the game.
* '''Played For Laughs''': The creators of the show wants Maxine to be PluckyComicRelief, but really overdoes it. But it actually works, and everyone [[EnsembleDarkhorse loves Maxine]].
* '''Played For Drama''':
** Maxine has to learn to control herself. It's easier said than done, but she does her best.
** Maxine's lack of impulse control is her [[StartofDarkness Start of Darkness]].
