* Gale in ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' has a habit of touching the bridge of his nose before speaking, similar to the motion a person might use to [[AdjustingYourGlasses adjust their glasses]]. Supposedly it's because he is the partial reincarnation of [[spoiler:the scientist David, who was Jenna Angel's lover in the real world.]] The forehead touch is similar to a "phantom limb" effect: [[spoiler:David]] wore glasses, and switching from wearing glasses for years to not wearing glasses still leaves behind the feeling of wearing glasses.

* Bella Swan from ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' often bites her lower lip, a trait she shares with KristenStewart.
* LoisMcMasterBujold's [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Miles Vorkosigan]] (who's just slightly self-conscious about his height) tends to lift his chin defensively when under stress, especially in the earlier books.

*** A lot of his gestures call attention to his unusually big and awkward-looking nose - tapping or pushing on the side for 'on the nose' or 'it's a secret', prodding it, pinching the bridge or the tip in frustration, stroking it in thought.... even the very few times he's being flirty he tends to do so by [[CleopatraNose delicately touching his nose]].

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'''s Dr Harrison Wells has quite a few tics, including gesturing with his hands, keeping a hand near his chin when thinking and shifting his jaw and lower lip. Most noticeable is his habit of taking his glasses off when prodding Barry about his past or giving him tips on how best to use his speed. He also takes his glasses off whenever he's [[spoiler: no longer pretending to be Wells.]] Additionally, he rubs the back of his neck a lot, especially [[spoiler: when he has recently stood up out of his wheelchair.]]

* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': The nervous tic that Shinji displayed in the series, the clenching/relaxing of his left hand, shows up again just before the battle with [[EldritchAbomination the 12th angel]]. However, in another example of character growth, Shinji actually notices this and makes himself stop (and also mentally lampshades how "old habits are hard to break".)

* ''Fanfic/TheOneILoveIs'': Asuka sometimes clenches and unclenches her fist, like Shinji did. She mentions it in the “Friends and Rivals” side-story:
-->''I didn't really notice it, but I clenched and unclenched my fist, much like Shinji sometimes did.''

* In the first book of the ''SwordOfTruth'' series, both Richard and Darken Rahl have their ticks. Richard runs his hands through his hair when gets nervous or exasperated, while Rahl licks his fingers and runs them over his lips and eyebrows habitually. Richard's tic [[spoiler:clues Zedd in that the "Darken Rahl" they see is not, in fact, Darken Rahl, but he realizes it a moment too late.]]
