* Handsome Jack from ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'' is shown to be very emotionally unstable and impulsive to the point of buying a horse made of diamonds because he's rich, he's suffered physical abuse at the hands of his grandmother, he seems to genuinely believe he is the hero of the story, and nearly everyone he's worked with has either died or betrayed him. It was shown that in ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'' that while Jack was never the most moral person, he was a considerably better person before [[spoiler:being betrayed by the Vault Hunters, [[GoneMadFromTheRevelation experiencing visions of the Warrior reawakening]] and being horrifically scarred by Lilith's attack]]. Prior to these events, Jack was actually concerned about his subordinates and the innocent people of Elpis and generally much more stable and humble than the monster of Borderlands 2.

* George Banks from ''Theatre/MaryPoppins'' demands precision and order, is often insensitive when he doesn't mean to be, has difficulty with emotional intimacy and romance, and recoils from physical contact (at least to begin with).

* George Banks from ''Theatre/MaryPoppins'' demands precision and order, is often insensitive when he doesn't mean to be, has difficulty with emotional intimacy and romance, and recoils from physical contact (at least to begin with). We eventually learn that he was abused by his childhood nanny, so Complex PTSD is a possibility.

* 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.

** Joffrey, a product of incest himself, displays a disturbing fondness for violence. At times he even seems to be ''sexually aroused'' by it. He shows no signs of empathy whatsoever, is extremely impulsive (ordering a crowd of peasants slaughtered because someone threw a cow pie at him), and derives joy from inflicting random cruelty on others. It's highly possible that he suffers from some form of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, particularly Malignant Narcissism.

** Nobody knows what's up with Ed Nygma (the future Riddler), but even by Gotham City standards this young man is extremely eccentric. He's perfectionistic (to the point of rearranging someone else's filing system to "improve" it), obsessed with science and riddles, and has NoSocialSkills, and he doesn't seem to notice when he's making other people uncomfortable.

Added DiffLines:

** Mikazuki Augus from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' is extremely quiet and rarely shows any kind of emotion on his face or in his voice. Whether happy, angry, or sad, his voice and expression are always perfectly level. He also kills with zero hesitation, and seems to outsource all of his agency to his friend Orga Itsuka: no matter what Orga orders, Mikazuki will do it, and it is rare for Mikazuki to decide to do something on his own. What's scary is that flashbacks show that Mikazuki was like this even before he became a ChildSoldier; the very first scene shows a young Mikazuki with a gun in his hand over a bleeding corpse, asking Orga what it is he should do next.

** Cersei's black and white concept of friends and enemies, penchant for risky indulgences like adultery and alcoholism, poor control of her emotions, and difficulty empathizing with others have led to a popular theory that she has Borderline Personality Disorder.
** Ramsey appears to be a sociopath.

** Pearl gets obsessed with certain subjects like swords or gem history, tends to get annoyed by asymmetrical things, seems to stim by clenching her fists and other gestures when she gets excited, takes hyperbole, sarcasm, and humour literally, has an inability to pick up on social cues, has difficulties empathizing with those she doesn't have a close connection with (ie: most humans), is ultra-logical most of the time but highly anxious and emotional in stressful situations, and has trouble understanding other people's perspectives. Given that the other Gems can seem to glean a basic understanding of earth and its inhabitants, Pearl's behavior may not be explainable by reference to her outsider status alone. This is on top of the rampant PTSD symptoms she displays in relation to the GreatOffscreenWar and the loss of her love interest, Rose Quartz.
** Peridot gets obsessed over things (such as: watching the same episode of the [[ShowWithinAShow TV show "Camp Pining Hearts"]] over and over for more than three days straight), is VERY LiteralMinded, seems to stim by recording herself talking about what's happening to and around her (first with her fingerscreen, later with a tape recorder Steven gave her), can be [[InnocentlyInsensitive extremely rude]] without meaning to, and gets very annoyed by the Crystal Gems' "incorrect behavior". Aside from that, Peridot also shows signs of halted emotional development. She has the tendency to throw temper tantrums when things don't go the way she wants them to, seems to be unable to understand how she might have made others feel bad, and doesn't know how to put her emotions into words (she describes feeling good or bad as feeling "big" or "smaller", and the only way she shows gratitude is by saying "wow, thanks", something she learned from Steven).
