Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'''s heavy focus on Hollywoo mental complexes results in this. The title character is a deeply depressed and unpleasant man who is discovering that having abusive parents, substance abuse issues and fundamentally good intentions doesn't justify his unlikeable behaviour - and that's just the beginning of his problems. Princess Carolyn's career makes her miserable and lonely, but she can't leave it due to her addiction to pulling other people out of crises. Diane's high intelligence and great potential as a writer contrasts with her job ghostwriting celebrity memoires and tweets, and even her relatively stable love-life is full of bad communication. Todd and Mr Peanutbutter are the more well-adjusted members of the main cast, but Todd's a directionless millenial whose achievements are systematically sabotaged by [=BoJack=] out of terror Todd will ever leave him, and Mr Peanutbutter is able to thrive in Hollywoo simply because it's as shallow, superficial, attention-deficit and cynical as he is.

** Said tenants include a {{Vietnam}}ese immigrant who suffers from chronic depression due to ''severe'' family issues, a short tempered construction worker who is obsessed with breaking things and is a closet fanboy of the town's local jazz singer, a greedy, selfish deadbeat who constantly blows his money on gambling, much to his wife's chagrin, and a secretive man who is heavily implied to be a government agent.

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}''. We have a leader who struggles with his own decisions and has an older brother as the enemy, a Machiavellian-esque SadClown who's willing to kill his own alien-possesed mother, a BloodKnight who's worried about losing control, a emotional wreck who's stuck in hawk form and is happy that way, an animal rights girl who can [[ManipulativeBastard play you like a piano]] and an AmusingAlien who lives in the shadow of his deceased brother. And they're supposed to protect us. [[SarcasmMode Our world is in good hands.]]

* The Swedish police as portrayed in the ''Series/{{Backstrom}}'' novels is full of barely functioning coppers who all have their own preoccupations and limitations - the appalling Ewart Bäckström is merely the most obvious one. The American TV adaptation set in Portland transfers this to an American police department.

* The [[ComicBook/XWingSeries Wraiths]] are an X-Wing squadron composed initially of nothing but the [[ColonelBadass Commander]], his [[WingMan old wingmate]], and people on their LastSecondChance, in the belief that [[CareerBuildingBlunder they will work hard to prove their worth]]. The [[Creator/AaronAllston author]] is a big believer in using a CastOfSnowflakes. ''Everyone'' has something wrong with them. Otherwise they wouldn't be a Wraith. The commander does notice that they're actually good for each other, able to help one another get past their pasts and presents rather than making things worse. Still, the reputation sticks. When a new pilot is transferred in who was assigned because of their track record and not because of big screwups, a pilot jokingly says that he's too normal for the Wraiths. The new pilot then proves to be a LargeHam.
