* ''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'': At several points, Yu Narukami seems a tad... odd at times. For example, during their first visit to the TV World, he sees nothing wrong with Yosuke, in the midst of a PottyEmergency, dropping his pants and relieving himself against a wall, and even asks Chie ''why'' he would want to stop him from doing so. Of course, most of his antics can simply be chalked up to RuleOfFunny.



** VillainProtagonist Light Yagami is also undeniably insane, but it's never clarified where exactly it comes from. Between his monster [[AGodAmI god complex]], inability to cope with [[BlackAndWhiteInsanity any perceived evil]], and constant [[GigglingVillain manic laughter]], there's something definitely wrong with him; that's all without even discussing the fact that he picks up mass-murder like a new, exciting hobby. For the record, WordOfGod states that Light [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope went off the deep end]] was because he was a perfectionist and couldn't reconcile that with the fact that he had unintentionally murdered someone except through InsaneTrollLogic.

* Everybody on ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' is implied to have something wrong with them. For example, Kaeloo may be schizophrenic, as she is unable to draw the line between a "game" and a dangerous situation.
-->'''Kaeloo [to Mr. Cat, who is trying to pull her out of the path of a meteorite]''': Mr. Cat, it's just a game!

* So far two characters of the 1990's generation of ''{{Fanfic/Uplifted}}'' series suffers from HOCCD (Hyperactive Obsessive Comprehension and Compulsion Disorder) It is described as a form of Quarian autism mixed with OCD that can be brought on through genetics (Daelia'Vael) or from extreme in utereo exposure to Element Zero (Galina'Hoch. best case: A lack of desire of for interaction with others and a penchant for compulsion, to worse case scenario: the sufferer will literally think themselves into a state of catatonia and death. Whichever the case, the disorder requires special education, drugs and a routine for the sufferers to keep their sanity in check.

check. As a result of therapy and drugs, HOCCD afflicted are very deliberate in speech patterns and actions, with everything plotted out in every possible way before hand, but if something goes wrong or out of their hands, the quickly are prone to panic attacks, total collapse of their regimens and potential relapses.

** If they had any disorder at all - unfortunately, it was not uncommon for mental hospitals of the day to assign a flimsy diagnosis based on lax interpretation and use that to justify permanent institutionalization.

* Ami also on occasion displays low self esteem, and seems to have some form of social anxiety. A notable but ambiguous disorder attached to this would be her "allergy to love letters", where she actually breaks out in hives when she is presented with a love letter.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' also has this, due to DysfunctionJunction:


Added DiffLines:

* From ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' , we have the Mayor who is neither bright nor mature, and relies heavily on his secretary and personal assistant, Ms. Sara Bellum, to do the real work around the place. He also seems to be ''very'' childish, causing him to act as if he needs to be taken care of. This is '''especially'' noticeable in the later seasons.

* ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHunterForce'': It's often implied that Meatwad has some kind of mental disability. In "Super Bowl" and "Ezekial," he outright calls himself "messed up in the head" and retarded in those respective episodes, and in "Rabbot Redux," when Shake complains to Frylock about Meatwad upsetting him, Frylock responds, "He doesn't know any better, and he's ''never'' gonna know any better. And you know that."



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'': Where to begin with the Warden? He is shown to be very intelligent and yet has the [[ManChild mentality of a child]]. He also interacts better with animals and machines than with people and has sociopathic tendencies, especially when he's murdering his own inmates. (Although these are [[ComedicSociopathy usually]] PlayedForLaughs.) Oh, and when he does befriend/fall in love with someone, he tends to be [[{{Yandere}} clingy]] and almost a bit of a [[StalkerWIthACrush creep]] around them.

* Rufus Whedon from ''ComicBook/LockeAndKey''. He's definitely "special" in some way, but he seems too articulate for retardation or Downs. His first appearances made him appear to have some sort of disassociative identity disorder (he only talked through his action figures) but later ones had him talk on his own and say that was just pretend.

* Brun the bartender in ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''. At first she just comes across as taciturn and undemonstrative, then when the bar burns down she continues to be taciturn and undemonstrative, eventually explaining when Clinton congratulates her for being calm "I'm not ... great. With emotions", and the stress is actually making it hard for her to talk at all. Later, her friend Renee says she's "not great at working out people's intentions", and she says needs a new routine now that the bar is gone.
