* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' takes place in a CrapsackWorld and involves members of a RedshirtArmy that fight [[SuperPersistentPredator Man-eating]] [[HumanoidAbomination giants]] called Titans. Most of the human race has already been devoured to the brink of extinction, and the survivors live within a walled territory where the threat of food shortages and civil unrest threaten to finish them off. The characters that didn't start out damaged quickly develop issues, thanks to the constant threat of being EatenAlive and having to watch their comrades [[CruelAndUnusualDeath die brutally]] on a [[AnyoneCanDie regular]] basis. Anyone that isn't at least hinted to have some sort of emotional problems probably didn't live long enough to be developed or [[BreakTheCutie suitably]] [[ShellShockedVeteran broken]]. [[spoiler: And this doesn't even start on the Titan Shifters, who at least one of which has actually gone crazy, and they all are implied to have something seriously wrong with them that caused them to ''try and exterminate humanity'']].
** [[spoiler: Of course, the humans outside the wall might not be as extinct as the ones left within the wall are led to believe]].

* The TV Series of ''Anime/BlackRockShooter''. The only sane person out of the cast is Yuu. [[spoiler: Nope. Actually, Yuu vanished into Otherworld years ago. The person we've been seeing named Yuu is actually her Otherself Strength. She's not crazy, however, she IS the crazy.]]
** Psychologically stable people don't have Otherselves; they can stabilize, but you had to be psychologically abnormal at some point.

* Anyone in ''Manga/ElfenLied'' who wasn't already murderous, emotionally traumatized, or unlucky in love sure became one (or all) of those. The only character to come across as somewhat well-adjusted would have to be Nana, and sometimes, not even her!

* The new Original Seven of ''Anime/GunXSword''. This is kind of funny, in that Gadved, the OnlySaneMan, boasted to Van about how powerful they are and how well they work together. With the likes of [[TheBerserker Carossa]], [[BrokenBird Fasalina]] and especially [[Theatre/OedipusRex Wo]]...
** The protagonists are also something like this, especially when you count [[SixthRanger Ray]].

* This is more-or-less obligatory in ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'' as cyborgs are orphaned or "unwanted" children used by the government to become [[ChildSoldier assassins]]. All the girls have [[DarkAndTroubledPast deeply troubled pasts]] ranging from Henrietta being rape after her family was killed in front of her to Angelica's father trying to run her over to get money from the "accident". The only reason they're not all suicidal and depressed is because their conditioning represses their memories and makes them [[{{yandere}} extremely loyal]] to their [[TheHandler handlers]]. Their handlers aren't the most functional men either. For example, Jose uses Henrietta as a ReplacementGoldfish for his sister Enrica while Rico's is abusive towards her.

* Every ''Manga/{{Loveless}}'' character who isn't a psychopath or sociopath has been through emotional hell. Ritsuka (amnesia, ongoing physical abuse from his mother, the death of his beloved older brother, and the discovery that said older brother [[spoiler: is a murdering psychopath who faked his own death]]) and Soubi (orphaned, raised by a teacher who wanted to exert complete control over him and [[spoiler: sexually abused him]], and [[spoiler: physically and emotionally abused by Seimei, who saw him as an object]]), are probably the worst off, but Yuiko is a victim of bullying, Natsuo and Youji felt neglected by their creator, and Kio is estranged from his daughter and has been disowned by his family, just to name a few.

[[spoiler: And depending on your definition of backstory, she had her injury in-between ''A's'' and ''[=StrikerS=]''.]]
** Of course, part of the reason why it's downplayed is that there are therapists; [[WarriorTherapist the kind that rain pink lasers of death upon their patients]].

* Most of the characters in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' that get any screen time usually have suffered through the death of a loved one or some kind of abuse, including Sasuke, Naruto, Sakura, Gaara, Iruka, Kakashi, Sai, Hinata, Neji... you get the point.
** To elaborate: Sasuke has PTSD, among other issues, Naruto hides severe depression, Sakura and Karin have downright abusive relationships with Sasuke (read: they continue to be smitten with him even when he tries to kill them), Kakashi has a serious case of survivor guilt on account of witnessing two suicides and being unable to save his mentor or his best friend, Hinata has an inferiority complex that causes crippling shyness, Gaara had severe depression from his years of persecution at his own father's hands, culminating in failed suicide attempts and then homicidal mania by age twelve (fortunately, he got better), [[ItMakesSenseInContext Neji tried to kill his cousin Hinata because he didn't want to be her slave]], Sai was trained to be an emotionless killer, including being forced to fight the guy he had come to regard as a brother to the death. Let's not even get started on the [[FreudianExcuse villains]]...

* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' might look like a flamboyant, over-the-top explosion of pure fluff, but when you get down to it, the main characters are all very heavily influenced by family problems. Haruhi struggles with confidence and identity issues because of her dead mother and cross-dressing father. Tamaki is hiding a vast amount of hurt and confusion because his grandmother hates him and his high-powered businessman father inhabits a world that runs on a different code of ethics than he grew up with. Kyoya is driven by the need to surpass the achievements of his two older brothers in order to earn the respect of his father. Kaoru and Hikaru are so dependent on each other as twins that they are almost unable to relate to other people alone. Honey is rejected by his family because he prioritizes cake and cute things over his dedication to the family martial arts, and Mori has essentially no identity beyond helping and supporting Honey. The amount of drama all this causes is frankly astounding, and essentially runs the whole plot of a sixteen-volume manga series. Once you get into some of the plot twists, the issues get even darker and deeper. Admittedly, these are mostly pretty light compared to some other examples in this section, but still, one would imagine there would be one relatively normal character with a happy and well-balanced childhood and home life, out of seven. But no.

* The ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist universe]] seems to have psychological trauma as one of the qualifying factors for a commission in the Amestrian military. Notable cases are the Elric brothers, who were [[ParentalAbandonment abandoned by their father]], and sparked the plot by trying to use forbidden alchemy to resurrect their dead mother.

Almost every single major character (and definitely every single major character who already had past issues) gets badly traumatized at least once by the end of the series. Those that survive will surely have issues for years to come. [[spoiler:EarnYourHappyEnding indeed]].
** TruthInTelevision for an army that just finished committing genocide. Under the circumstances, anyone without severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is almost certainly a sociopath - like Kimblee.
** Not aided by ThereAreNoTherapists, because the series is set in an alternate 1914.

Added DiffLines:

* All the girls in ''Manga/SchoolLive'' suffer trauma due to the hellish ZombieApocalypse world they were abruptly thrown into.
** Yuki outright refuses to believe there are zombies and her mind tricks her into believing that everything is fine and normal as a coping mechanism.
** Kurumi was forced to kill the upperclassman she had a crush on after he was transformed into a zombie.
** Miki was the SoleSurvivor of a mall after the outbreak and watched as the remaining survivors died in a fire after one member became infected. Her best friend Kei couldn't take living in the shelter and voluntarily left the safe zone. Miki has no idea if Kei is still alive.
** Rii initially appeared the most emotionally stable out of the girls but later chapters shows her sanity hanging by a thin thread. She had a breakdown when [[spoiler: a helicopter crash renders the school inhabitable]] and she holds tremendous guilt over not trying to find her little sister who she last saw in the kindergarten school.
** Megu-nee was always stressed as she was the only adult around these girls and having the task of trying to keep the girls physically and mentally safe. She harbored major guilt because she found out [[spoiler: the government and by extension, the school, knew about the outbreak and prepared emergency manuals]] and she felt she could have done more if she had [[spoiler: opened the manual earlier.]]
