** While it has been LostInTranslation and somewhat buried by the English voice performance in which he is significantly cooler, Ocelot was intended at first to be a caricature of a Japanese-style "gun [[{{Otaku}} maniac]]", with rude, blunt, poorly-socialised speech patterns, snort-breathing over his CoolGuns, and the apparent motivation to turn America into something like the {{Spaghetti Western}}s he {{Cosplay}}s. He's almost unimaginably intelligent, but [[ComplexityAddiction his plans are often bizarre and obsessive]].

* ''VisualNovel/IkemenSengoku'': Mitsunari is a DitzyGenius who, while capable of being perfectly polite and charming in social interactions, is said to forget the name of the person he's talking to halfway through a conversation if he's not interested in that person and doesn't recognize any form of [[ObliviousToLove flirting]] or [[DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm sarcasm]] directed at him or other people. He also ForgetsToEat or sleep whenever he's absorbed in reading or some other activity that he's passionate about, causing his friends Hideyoshi and Masamune to have to constantly look after him to make sure he gets proper meals and rest.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Azula lacks empathy [[note]]In the real world, this accusation is leveled against those who just don't ''notice'' what others are feeling or know how to ''properly'' respond to it as readily as others, but that's ''not'' the case here. Azula is a straight-up [[TheSociopath sociopath]].[[/note]] and is a ConsummateLiar to the point that Toph, the LivingLieDetector, can't tell when she's lying, and is manipulative as all get out. And yet despite this, when forced into social situations she proves to be cringe-inducingly inept when it comes to actually interacting with people as opposed to manipulating them. Slightly complicated by how WordOfGod is that this was mainly the result of [[AbusiveParents her father's]] {{narcissist}}ic influence but even as a child her mother wondered just what was wrong with her. She also demonstrates ''seriously'' inappropriate nigh-sexualized behavior towards her brother (though this seems mainly designed to creep him out).

** The aforementioned Black of Pokemon Adventures, in this case Black Gaiman, shares his canon selves odd behavior pattern and need of a psychic type chewing on his memories to focus on them. Without the focus he talks fast and needs prompting from White to stay on task. However when his mind is focused he is highly observant and clear.

** Queen Elsa, [[WordOfGod according to Jennifer Lee]], was meant to show signs of anxiety and depression. This same woman once loved her powers before almost killing her little sister in an accident, which resulted in her fearing what she was capable. Spending those same years separated from Anna living in fear of what she could do and heartbreak over distancing herself from Anna had a negative effect on her. Even after she and Anna reconcile, ''Disney/FrozenFever'' and ''Disney/OlafsFrozenAdventure'' suggest she still suffers from this, feeling guilt over never spending birthdays or Christmases with her sister.

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', N was raised by Pokémon without human contact [[spoiler:to be groomed into a tool for world conquest]]. The result of this is an inability to empathize with humans, speaking very fast and in a lot of scientific terms, having a black and white morality viewpoint and a slight tendency to stalk people.
** Courtney in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]''. Her official character profile describes her as highly intelligent, she rarely speaks, and she is disinterested in most people and things except for a few special interests. She also has an odd way of speaking where she constantly pauses and uses few words.

** Lena is a blunt girl who wears a mask akin to Hannibal Lecter which is more than likely ''not'' for show, suggesting that she can be aggressive.
** Annaliese is painfully shy, avoids interacting with anyone, and spends her classes staring out the window listening to music. When Erik tries to get to know her, she has a panic attack and runs off.
** One of the first thing Natalya's does is try to force Erik to eat her food so that her sister doesn't find out she won't eat. Sofiya then makes references that imply that Natalya has difficulties eating.

* [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Cinder Fall]] shows some very severe mental issues in the series ''Fanfic/TheMakingsOfTeamCRME''. She is called a sociopath a couple of times InUniverse and [[WordOfGod by the author]], but her issues are much deeper than just that. Her egomania is implied to be the result of childhood abuse that she suffered and an attack on [[spoiler: Melanie Black]] shows that her childhood haunts her since she attacked this person because they reminded her of her [[AbusiveParents abusive]] [[EvilMatriarch mother]]. Watts also implies that she's [[PsychopathicManchild emotionally stunted because of her abuse]]. She later has more prominent childish traits. Along with her random bouts of anger and [[CantTakeCriticism intolerance for criticism]] on top of her sociopathic symptoms, the Cinder Fall of this series is a psychological mess.

* Robert Downey Jr.'s portrayal in the 2009 ''[[Film/SherlockHolmes2009 Sherlock Holmes]]'' film and its 2011 sequel ''[[Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows A Game of Shadows]]'' was more socially-challenged than uual, had some weird eye contact moments, and was implied to have issues with sensory integration. This is actually more accurate to the original stories by Conan Doyle than most portrayals of the character (see below under "Literature").

She also shows doubt in other people and their views towards her.

* In the novel ''The Rules of Survival,'' Matthew's mother Nikki is violently AxeCrazy and suffers from severe mood swings. On several occasions, she acts loving and doting toward her children, only to flip out and get enraged at them for a perceived slight. Matthew recalls an incident in his childhood when she teasingly called him a "cookie thief" for stealing cookies, then held a knife to his neck until he apologized. She has very little impulse control (if any at all), cutting off her daughter Callie's hair to show her "how important hair is to a woman", deliberately driving her car into traffic to scare her kids, and dangling her other daughter Emmy over sharp rocks. She also perceives nearly everyone as an enemy, even when they have done nothing to her or are even trying to help her--this includes her own children when she loses custody of them.
