* Legato Bluesummers from ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' could very well be the personification of the The Lone Psycho Goth. Keep in mind, he wears a ''human skull'' as an accessory on his shoulder.
* Sunako in ''Manga/TheWallflower'' is an example of the Lone Psycho Goth and an example of playing with a trope. She does [[LonersAreFreaks Lone Psycho]], she occasionally tries to kill people [[{{Yandere}} she's attracted to]], she [[PerkyGoth can be really nice and happy]], she loves the [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant macabre]], she can be a {{badass}}, she can be [[{{Gonk}} ugly]], she can [[SheCleansUpNicely be beautiful]], [[{{Bifauxnen}} even to girls]], she [[SupremeChef cooks, cleans]] and she [[KnifeNut juliennes]].
* Stocking from ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt''.
* Misa Amane of ''Manga/DeathNote'' is a Gothic Lolita, which counts.
* Re-l Mayer, the heroine of ''Anime/ErgoProxy'', is something of the DeadpanSnarker gloomy goth, dressing in all black and wearing lots of eye liner.
* Mizho from ''Manga/KarakuridoujiUltimo'' is introduced as one. She dresses like a dead school girl, with bandages wrapped all around her body, along with an eyepatch.

Vampires.



* Gaara from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' certainly looks the part, and he starts off as a Lone Psycho goth. Later, after his HeelFaceTurn, he's more like a Gloomy goth. His siblings, Temari and Kankuro would also count. They become more sociable as the series progresses.
** [[DarthVaderClone Hanzo the Salamander]] wears rather dull clothing mixing with an industrial theme which in turn symbolizes the Hidden Rain. The Hidden Rain itself is basically the Ninja World equivalent of a "Goth Country." Gloomy? Yes, creative? very, but somehow willing to change if it means improving its image.
** Two Uchiha arguably tip-toe near this stereotype, Madara and Itachi. Madara's appearance gives off the "vibe" mixed with his infamous personality and power, he represents the [[DarkIsEvil more negative parts of the trend.]] Itachi however leans towards the more positive, being that like most Goths he appears as a villain but once again [[DarkIsNotEvil looks can be deceiving.]]



* Gil of ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' frequently looks and acts the part.

* ''ComicBook/{{Batman}}''



* In season 1 of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'' the Oracle twins were identical twins and Kara looked punkish or grunge looking if anything. Come the massive art overhaul in season 2 Kara is a stereotypical goth while her, now fraternal, sister Sara is a preppy blue-eyed blonde.



* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' runs on this, as well as DarkIsNotEvil. Just to give you an idea, some of the major/recurring characters include TheGrimReaper, a girl who reflects many goth stereotypes ([[{{Irony}} while dressed in pink and other bright colors]]), a HumanoidAbomination and his son, Dracula, and [[HybridMonster the son]] of a {{Mummy}} and [[{{Dhampyr}} the son of the aforementioned Dracula]]. (In the latter's case, it's even more obvious in ''Underfist'', where his superpowered monster form looks like this trope mixed with Ancient Egyptian motifs.)



* ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom'' show lives and breathes this; specifically, the entire show is PerkyGoth, DarkIsNotEvil, and {{Moe}} in the form of an animated series.

* ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'': Morticia and Wednesday were Goth before the scene existed. The whole concept of the show, to contemporary viewers, is a comedy about a family of bohemian arty goths in stereotypical white-picket-fence suburbia.

** Speaking of the characters, [[GothGirlsKnowMagic Arachne]] submerges herself in this style. But then again her theme is that of a Spiders, so no surprise there.
