Crazy Awesome: Fanfic
  • The whole genre of Crack Fics—provided the story actually works.

Bleach
  • Ichigo in The First Guardian certainly qualifies. He purposely grows his hair to look like a shonen hero, actually tries to attach speakers to his Shinigami outfit so he can have his theme song (which is "Number One" of course) playing when he fights, constantly talks to his just as crazy Zanpakuto and chooses to do things based on "coolness factor". On the other hand, his crazy way of thinking allows him to enhance his Zanpakuto in various ways (from gathering spirit particles to strengthen it a la Quincy style, shaking the particles already in there to, temporally, turn his blade into fire, and to shape shifting it into different forms) without even showing shikai yet. And, no, his Zanpakuto isn't Zangetsu. And that's only a small sample of the crazy awesome stuff he does.

Calvin and Hobbes

Cross Over

Darkwing Duck

  • In Negaverse Chronicles, Quackerjack is undeniably insane. He was even committed for a time. On the other hand, this is also the reason why he can make so many toy-like weapons that are effective enough for him to hold his own on a team of superpowered heroes. His insanity is also suspected to be the reason why he can see the Voice through the glamour.

Harry Potter
  • Everyone in Thirty H's is absolutely deranged, but Harry himself stands out, killing astronauts with his Groinsaw, eating people's eyes, fighting surf ninjas and rewriting history. And that's not counting how many planets he kills the fuck out of.
  • Harry from Oh God Not Again is this. Even the other characters admit it in-universe and it's considered odd when Harry isn't doing something bizarre and off the wall.
  • Xerosis runs on this— surviving the apocalypse and being the star of a Peggy Sue fic has warped Harry's mind and with Voldemort as his partner and Luna as his sidekick they come up with the perfect "muggle solution" to move all wizards to the moon and leave the Earth to the Puny Earthlings.

Jackie Chan Adventures
  • In Queen Of All Oni, Jade, just like her canon counterpart, IS this trope.
    • First off, when the Oni general of the first mask tries to double cross her she decides to EAT the mask and thus his essence, gaining control over his tribe, and it WORKS.
    • Then, in the 7th chapter (counting the interludes), she comes with an Indy Ploy that allows her to capture Tohru for Ikazuki, by attacking Uncle, KNOWING Tohru will protect his sensei.
    • Later, in Operation: Steel Lightning, she comes up with a Batman Gambit to infiltrate Section 13 and steal the masks back (and maybe the Talismans as well) that was a VERY close Near Villain Victory, only failing due to the OC Spanner in the Works known as Agent Wisker.
    • Hero, an Anthropomorphic Personification (one of many that reside in Jade's mind, and represent different aspects of her mind) also fits this trope, but with maybe a bit too much emphasis on the "crazy" part. In a later chapter, he rams his ship into the one that the Aspect of Jade's Super-Powered Evil Side took from him (it represents a part of her consciousness), KNOWING his ship is far to fragile to survive the impact JUST TO MAKE A DRAMATIC ENTRANCE!
    • In the chapter where Jade is being tortured by Lung, Left and Right not only MOW down an ARMY of Terracotta warriors but Left kills one of Lung's monsters WITH A CHAINSAW, and destroys a magic-proof door with DYNAMITE!

Looking for Group
  • Adelleh from this Looking for Group fic. A cookie-eating, goggle-wearing undead priestess whose head is permanently in the clouds. At one point she actually convinces the other characters to throw themselves off a cliff, thereby saving their lives from an angry ghost!

Lyrical Nanoha
  • Game Theory deconstructs this trope rather harshly. Nanoha's crazy, reckless plans tend to backfire horribly with serious consequences.
    Aleph: One of the things that Game Theory has as a major theme is that Reality Ensues, and that doing something crazy-awesome and insane... is crazy and insane, and doesn't have to work just because it's the hero doing it.

Mega Man (Classic)
  • In Mega Man Recut, Metal Man is a sawblade wielding lunatic who nicknames everyone and fights the mob with his blades. He doesn't attack people but only because he can't mess up his blades by getting blood all over them. At one point Proto Man, Cut Man, and Guts Man have to drag him to safety because he insists on having an epic Bonnie and Clyde-esque last stand against the cops.
    • Dust Man is a Cloud Cuckoolander who drives around in a creepy old van, fights pests and animals around the Skull Fortress, spends his time scaring the other Robot Masters with weird ghost stories and his general weirdness, and has a vacuum cleaner as a weapon.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

Naruto

Neon Genesis Evangelion
  • The version of Rei Ayanami seen in Nobody Dies is best described as a cross between Haruhi Suzumiya, Elsa Bloodstone, and all three of the Warner siblings. In fact, the whole fic is made of concentrated Crazy Awesome. For example, matchmaking between Shinji and emo-Asuka:
    "Hook, line and sinker," Mana says, "Pretty Boy has fallen for the bait. Cancel plan B."
    On the overlooking rooftop, Rei sighs and closes the radio detonator.
    "I never get to do plan B."
    Behind her, holding the bazooka, Kensuke shrugs.
  • Shinji and Warhammer 40k. Too many examples to name, with mighty Shinji being only the most prominent.

Power Rangers
  • One of the general themes in "Of Love and Bunnies" is that being a Power Ranger turns you Crazy Awesome. Ten of these Rangers are the protagonists. These are people who can walk into a carnival and within two hours cause a fight to break out on the midway in which clowns hurl flaming pins at Adam Park. It's one of those stories.

Warhammer
