* Jonny from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. Rolf too, due to immigrating from another country and taking his exotic culture with him.

* Jonny from The trio that is ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. All three are social outcasts who have difficulty mingling with the other kids.
** Ed is just plain stupid, but a sweet guy. Even that can annoy people, especially his little sister and Eddy.
** Edd is somewhat better, but he can't seem to stop talking without using complicated words. Not to mention, he can't talk to girls without sweating or stuttering.
** Eddy seems to think that he'll be popular if he acts like a jerk and scamming people. It has the opposite effect, though, as it leads to him often getting beaten up or humiliated.

** Johnny as well. He has a hunk of wood for a best friend, after all.

* ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' - Domon Kasshu spent the latter half of his twenty-year life being raised in the woods by ludicrously {{Badass}} but eccentric [[OldMaster Master Asia]]. As such he's good at being passionately HotBlooded, ''really'' good at beating things up and...well, [[IdiotHero not much else]].

** In fact, you could make a case for a lot of the students not having any. [[NervousWreck Touko Fukawa]] has a bad habit of thinking the worst of people [[{{Hypocrite}} while accusing them of thinking the worst of her]]. [[TheSmartGuy Celestia Ludenberg]] has difficulty relating to people and actually treating them like... well, people. [[BadassBiker Mondo Oowada]] has a HairTriggerTemper which makes it hard to make friends [[spoiler:and ends very tragically]]. You could even argue that [[{{Jerkass}} Byakuya Togami]] is a case of this, given his inability to [[EvilCannotComprehendGood understand]] why [[spoiler:Asahina would try to get herself convicted of her best friend's "murder", which would result in the execution of her and everyone else]]. And the less said about [[{{Otaku}} Hifumi Yamada]], the better.

* ''Fanfic/GhostsOfEvangelion'': Adult Shinji and Asuka are functional but they still have a hard time socializing and understanding other people, and they are very dependent on each other. Shinji's self-flagellating habits and Asuka's hot temper don't help matters.

In RealLife, people with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyssemia dyssemia]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonverbal_Learning_Disorder nonverbal learning disorders]] fit this trope. It's a symptom of certain forms of autism, including AspergerSyndrome; a differently wired mind can make it hard to grasp social cues. Media is aware of this but tends to exaggerate its prevalence. A mild form also is common in academia. That said, '''Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease'''

* ''[[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Batgirl]]'' - Cassandra Cain, AKA Batgirl III, is arguably even more dysfunctional. The first eight years of her life was spent in a bunker [[TrainingFromHell learning the killing arts]] in isolation from spoken language. The next nine were spent on the streets, unable to comprehend spoken language and fleeing the man who raised her. It shows, even after telepathic intervention enabled her to speak and she got over [[DeathSeeker her death wish]].
--> '''Cassandra''': (''speaking into an audiorecorder/diary'') "They say you are supposed to... dress up for parties," (''looks at conservative business suit in mirror'') "But this is just... wrong."
** Speaking of ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' characters, Damien Wayne falls into this as well, especially during the earlier part of his tenure as Robin. Having been raised by the League of Assassins his whole life, adjusting to life as part of the Batfamily was rather difficult, especially trying to drill in the ThouShaltNotKill policy. He was often aloof, headstrong, and rebellious. [[CharacterDevelopment He did get better eventually.]]

** In ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl'' Barbara Gordon alias ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'' makes main universe Batman seem psychologically stable in comparison. She is rude, harsh and tactless, and she doesn't work well with other people (with the exception of Bruce Wayne and ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'').

* In the beginning of ''Manga/NewGame'', Kou appears to be quite funny and outgoing. But in Chapter 14/Episode 5, it's revealed that she was much less sociable when she started, having IWorkAlone tendencies and an aversion to people, plus a side order of BrutalHonesty and (in Rin's case) ObliviousToLove.
