In real life they would get fired, get arrested and eventually be committed, or just flat out get maimed or die. Not so in the world of fiction; thanks to the RuleOfCool, they manage to be both effective and a character liked or loved by the audience. Please note the difference between a plain old {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, who is simply out-there and the BunnyEarsLawyer, who is someone who is still effective ''despite'' or ''alongside'' their quirks. ²²On average, every other action the Crazy Awesome does is [[RuleOfCool cool]], awesome, and/or [[RuleOfFunny funny]], [[RefugeInAudacity over-the-top]], or a combination thereof. The HeroicComedicSociopath is AxCrazy Awesome. A LargeHam is a verbal Crazy Awesome. If their crazy awesomeness prevents them from being killed or arrested when anyone else would be, they just benefited from a LunaticLoophole. They may also be a LethalJokeCharacter. Expect lots of InsaneTrollLogic to be behind their plans and antics.²²As previously mentioned, a character that can "work" without the quirks ([[TheyChangedItNowItSucks but still wouldn't be the same]]) is a BunnyEarsLawyer. If they're just crazy, they're a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.²²Compare PowerBornOfMadness, EccentricMentor, and TheWonka.
