* Sarah in ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' is naïve, awkward, and emotionally unstable (though some of that can be chalked up to teenage Creator/JenniferConnelly's lack of acting chops at the time). She [[ThinksLikeARomanceNovel thinks like a fairy tale]] and prefers {{LARP}}ing alone in the park and collecting stuffed animals to interacting with actual friends.

It doesn't help that she kicks off the plot by offering her baby brother to the Goblin King from her play, despite not yet knowing that he's real.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' has the title character's cousin [[OddballDoppelganger Arnie]], who the other characters think is "dull" and "slow". His hobbies include counting things, reading ingredient labels (along with seemingly knowing what they are and how to pronounce them) and collections (specifically balls of lint and "plain flavored" gum), displays muted outward signs of emotion, and seems to have difficulty in social interaction (he constantly snorts and winks one eye at a time instead of blinking together). They resemble signs of AspergerSyndrome, but Arnold is still more outgoing and socially adept than most people with AS.

* In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', Locus's lack of free will, the fact he uses his ''armor'' as his name, his denial towards his murderous actions as anything but evil and his obsession/insistence to prove to Washington that he is a soldier just like Washington all indicate that ''something'' is wrong with him (Santa mentions Locus was "broken by war", hinting that he might have PTSD).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/YuGiOhVRAINS'' has two notable examples. The protagonist Yusaku lacks social skills is very blunt and direct and doesn't seem to realize that he comes off as rude this way; his emotions don't show on his face or body language even when he verbally states he is enjoying himself; and he has a tendency to list things in carefully ordered categories (of three), going so far as to stretch two ideas to fit three bullet points, while Aoi Zaizen, also known as Blue Angel, shows a lot of suspicion towards everyone outside of her online avatar and rarely shows emotions.

* While a great number of the cast from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' has several mental issues, special mention should be made of the main character, Eren Yeager, considering that even if in his early years he grew up in one of the most stable and loving environments [[CrapsackWorld for the setting]]: Even as child he was prone to uncontrolled anger outbursts, had difficulty socializing with other children (his only friend was Armin, another awkward boy), constantly himself got into fights, and ''he stabbed to death two adult men as a child'', granted, [[PayEvilUntoEvil they were]] [[CompleteMonster human trafficker kidnappers]] who had previously murdered Mikasa's parents in right front of her. His rationale for doing it? "I killed some dangerous animals. Animals who happened to look like humans". Later events through the series have not helped his sanity very much.

* [[Franchise/MetalGear Otacon's]] portrayal in ''Fanfic/{{Stray}}'' maintains the Ambiguously Disordered traits he has in canon, but adds a few new symptoms - he's not great with metaphors and figurative language and it's mentioned at one point that he can find facial expressions hard to read.

* ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'' as portrayed by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Later depictions of the character can differ, but the original stories make it fairly clear that it's not just that Holmes is incredibly smart -- his brain works in a different way from most people. He's got a hefty dose of social awkwardness and assorted weird behavioral quirks to go along with the extreme intelligence and perspicacity, as well. And then there's the cocaine addiction.

* ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'' as portrayed by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Later depictions of the character can differ, Literature/SherlockHolmes, arguably. Modern adaptations tend to play this up a lot, but even in the original stories make it fairly clear that it's not just that Holmes is incredibly smart -- his brain works in a different way from most people. he's described as... eccentric, to say the least. He's got very anti-social, has a hefty dose number of social awkwardness and assorted weird behavioral quirks to go along with the extreme intelligence and perspicacity, as well. inappropriate habits like indoor revolver practice, and is prone to bouts of lethargy and depression when he has no case to keep him occupied. And then there's that's not even getting into the cocaine addiction.addiction...
