** Athena also has her fair share of tics, but one actually stands out as the developers ShowingTheirWork: whenever she enters a HeroicBSOD, she ''[[http://aceattorney.wikia.com/wiki/File:Athena_Cykes_-_breakdown.gif covers her ears]]''. This is actually a known habit of patients with [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperacusis hyperacousis]], AKA overly sensitive hearing, which they do to block out overbearing sounds.
*** Her other tics include her playing with her earring when she's thinking, and rubbing her ponytail whenever she's embarrassed.

** As a young man (from ''Midshipman'' to ''Hotspur'') Hornblower's body language is always described with words like awkward or lanky. At one point Bush recognizes him from the back because of the gangling way Hornblower is walking into the wind.

** ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. In "Dark Frontier", Chakotay notes that Captain Janeway always fiddles with her comm badge when she's plotting something, a character tic that had never been seen before or since in the series. More accurately, Janeway has a tendency to place her hands on her hips, which unfortunately turns out to be the worst insult imaginable for one alien species that communicates through body language.

* Creator/NoelFielding often runs his fingers through his hair and plays with it in interviews and other TV appearances. No matter what bizarre shape he subconsciously arranges it into, [[MrFanservice it still looks amazing.]]

* Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'' has Bill Adama's habit, when making speeches to the whole crew, of holding a telephone handset upside down like a one-way microphone with his hand gripping the ear end. Later on in the show other characters started copying it.

* ''Film/InfernalAffairs'' has a couple of trademark tics that are actually plot-relevant: Yan's habit of tapping his fingers on things and Ming's of tapping objects he's holding against his leg.

** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' has an amusing ThrowItIn version: Since the show has an overarching VideoGames theme, the {{Transformation Trinket}}s are made to look like video game cartridges. While filming the first episode, Ex-Aid's suit actor Seiji Takaiwa decided to pantomime "blowing" into the device when he performed Ex-Aid's FinishingMove. The staff felt that it suited the feel of the series so well that they told him he could keep doing it.
