* ''Manga/{{Loveless}}'': Love and touching is an uncomfortable subject for Ritsuka. He is wary of compliments and affection, and early on in the series is troubled when Soubi says "I love you" frequently. Ritsuka doubts this is true and has trouble tolerating it, and because of Ritsuka's cynical reaction, Soubi stops saying it altogether after volume 2 of the manga. Still, Ritsuka's inner conflict over whether he believes what Soubi says becomes a source of great tension and bitterness in their relationship. However, as the story progresses, Ritsuka realizes how much he needs Soubi despite his rash attitude at times; when he tells Soubi to leave him alone, he is often seen staring at his cell phone waiting for a call or a text message.

* Rey of ''Film/StarWarsTheForceAwakens'' doesn't deal well with touching. When [[TheDulcineaEffect Finn holds her hand when pulling her to safety]] she breaks her NiceGirl persona and screams "Stop grabbing my hand!". Though this may have to do with the fact that she just met him and she's an ActionGirl who's more than capable of taking care of herself, and it [[ShipTease may have been romantic on his end though later after character development she kisses him on the forehead]]. When Kylo Ren [[MindGame touches her mind with the dark force]] during an interrogation scene she screams "Get out of my head!" forcing him back and when he grabs her arm when grappling with her she gives him a slash across the face with Luke Skywalker's lightsaber.

* Some animals, like cats or dogs for example, are skittish and a MoodSwinger, so they may either retreat from a person's touch, try to attack whoever's trying to touch them, etc. This is especially notable if the animal has been abused in any way, as its a psychological response due to trauma.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': The Dursley's have no tolerance for people they don't know touching them, specifically if the person is abnormal or magical in any way. They have big hang ups about magic. In the first book when Mr. Dursley is randomly hugged by a strange man he freezes up and thinks about how uncomfortable it made him feel. Also, Draco and his family are purebloods and thus can't stand if someone who is half-blood, muggle born (mudblood's they call them), or blood traitors touch them. Harry has this reaction to people grabbing him suddenly whether it be Neville in the first book in a SecurityCling or in the third book when Peter Pettigrew grabs his legs prompting Harry to give him a look of disgust.

In real life, this is called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sensory_defensiveness tactile defensiveness]], and is common in abuse victims and people with conditions like ADHD or autism spectrum disorders, and especially with OCD or if the character is TerrifiedOfGerms, but even then, some people just ''don't like it'' and can't explain why. The ''perception'' that someone hates being touched can also come as a result of a CultureClash: if someone believes that touching is an intimate gesture to be shared among close friends and lovers, then the American custom of shaking hands with someone the first time you meet them would be overly-intimate, akin to walking up to a complete stranger, grabbing their face, and Frenching them. Depending on culture and personality, attempting to touch the person could result in a HandshakeRefusal, the person stepping back to regain some sense of personal space, or an attack on the PersonalSpaceInvader; however, adequately befriending them will usually remove the touch taboo in this case.
