'''Basic Trope''': A character has a non-standard perspective on life.
* '''Straight''': Alice has a very strange thought process, but is still intelligible
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Alice is so odd that she is constantly misunderstood by the remainder of the group
** Alice speaks in an alien language all the time and always dances.
** Alice's mind trumps the insanity of an EldritchAbomination and her imagination consists of [[YouKeepUsingThatWord Inconceivable]] AlienGeometries, sometimes with actual {{Eldritch Location}}s and entire {{Chaos World}}s inside them. [[AMindIsATerribleThingtoRead Trying to read her mind would be suicidal and will cause you to be trapped in her alien imagination, forever.]]
* '''Downplayed''': Alice has an slight character quirk, but is otherwise quite grounded in reality.
* '''Justified''':
** Alice is actually from another planet and isn't familiar with local customs, etc.
** Alice is genuinely insane.
** Alice's real self is possessing another body.
** [[MushroomSamba Alice is on hallucinogens]].
* '''Inverted''': Alice is the [[OnlySaneMan one voice of reason among a cast of surrealists]].
* '''Subverted''':
** Alice seems to be crazy, but turns out to be [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight eerily accurate]].
** Alice is using ObfuscatingStupidity or ObfuscatingInsanity.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** It turns out to be a SeeminglyProfoundFool.
** Alice is [[DoubleSubversion feigning]] [[ObfuscatingStupidity feigning stupidity]] and is making it blatantly obvious because she doesn't want people to know that she really is crazy.
* '''Parodied''':
** Alice's head can't be seen -- it's just a fluffy pink cloud that spouts cheerful nonsense.
** She's constantly a blur and is ultra-annoying.
** As weird as Alice is, she's has [[OnlySaneMan more sanity than the rest of the main cast combined]].
* '''Zig Zagged''':
** Everyone thinks Alice is crazy, but then it turns out that's she's so genius no one can understand her thought process but other geniuses, so she's sent to a special school for geniuses, [[EveryoneHasStandards where she's considered weird by the other people who DO understand where she's coming from.]]
** Alice is in a constant and unalterable state of general weirdness. In most episodes it makes her the weirdest member of the cast, but it also grants her InsanityImmunity to stress, chemicals, and various forms of phlebotinum, making her the OnlySaneMan when the rest of the cast is going crazier than she already is.
* '''Averted''': Alice has normal intelligence and sanity.
* '''Enforced''':
** The writers don't have the whole series plotted out yet, so they want a character to drop vague hints and suggestions which they can call on later on.
** "Everyone loves TheLoonie."
* '''Lampshaded''':
** "Alice, where did that train of thought come from, and where is it going?"
** "I'm not crazy, I'm just.... differently sane."
* '''Invoked''':
** Alice is perfectly capable of making sense, but is cheerfully random as a way to avoid serious conversations.
** Alice acts this way to cover up her [[StepfordSmiler many dark, serious issues]].
* '''Exploited''': Alice is an attention-seeker using ObfuscatingStupidity or ObfuscatingInsanity to get noticed.
* '''Defied''': Alice says something that earns her weird looks, only to assure her team that she is not, in any way, eccentric at all.
* '''Discussed''': "Try to be wary of Alice. She's a bit... off."
* '''Conversed''': "Why are so many happy-go-lucky morons in this show?"
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Alice's {{Cloudcuckoolander}} tendencies come from insanity, another psychological disorder (like Disorganized Schizophrenia), or a very screwed up childhood.
** Her unusual thought process, though amusing and unique, causes her to make bad decisions most rational people would not commit.
** Her strange behavior alienates everyone around her, and makes her more prone to being bullied, leaving her with only her imagination, causing her to go even further into insanity and depression.
** She becomes so entrenched in her imagination she is considered as a schizophrenic and thus thrown into a mental hospital.
** People find her incredibly annoying and exasperating, due to her quirks.
** Alternatively, none of her oddities hurt herself. Instead, they hurt others when she acts so InnocentlyInsensitive. She doesn't know what she's doing is wrong.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** [[TheCuckooLanderWasRight Alice has astonishing psychological, spiritual, or psychic insight]], but language is too limited for her to express her vision.
** Alice's intuition works so fast that the steps between her thoughts, while plausible if spelled out, can't be seen.
** She's just random.

Done playing with this trope, like an octopus (hey, the plural of ''octopus'' is ''octopodes'', so if two octopodes lived on opposite ends of the earth, would they be ''antipodal octopodes''?) playing with a tin can or something? 'Kay, back to {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.
-> I thought the plural was ''octopi''?
--> ''octopuses'' also works.
---> It's "octopese", duh.
----> Isn't the plural form of ''octopus'' octopus, just like fish is fish when there's many fish?
