** 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.

** ''[[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Cassandra Cain]]'', AKA ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'' II, is pretty 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]].

** Damien Wayne -the fourth ''Comicbook/{{Robin}}''- 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.]]

* ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}. He rarely shows emotions, doesn't tell people the reasons behind his plans, and is incredibly paranoid. This is all justified: his childhood was spent with an insane madman who experimented on him, while allowing the other children in an orphanage to bully and ostracize him and his adolescence was spent with a man who treated him as more of a weapon than a child. Of course he has never been able to explain this to his teammates. Even when he does show emotions, it tends to be in a way that indicates that he's really not sure how to deal with other people.

* In ''Fanfic/XMenTheEarlyYears'', ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} doesn't know what is this "social skills" thing everyone harps on about but he's sure he hates it.
-->'''Scott:''' I don't do one-night stands and I don't have time for a relationship. I almost have too much on my plate with school, community-service hours, and saving the world from evil mutants. Figuring out women takes too much time and energy. That, and most people just manage to irritate me.

** Vatista is an ArtificialHuman from ages past who's really, ''really'' out of touch with the norms of the modern world. You know, norms like [[InnocentFanserviceGirl wearing clothes]] [[NoNudityTaboo for instance.]] It's to the point that she only really put some clothes on to make [[{{Protagonist}} Hyde]] happy... and then immediately undressed again when he was no longer around. And whenever she and Hyde encounter a second female character she [[RunningGag has to ask if Hyde forced them to wear clothes, too.]] It all comes across as rather funny and cute.
** Carmine's lack of social skills, however, are anything ''but'' funny and cute. He's an AxCrazy, [[SirSwearsAlot foul mouthed]] {{Jerkass}} with zero tolerance of [[BoredomMontage boredom]] (which is unfortunate since he gets bored ''very'' easily) and a HairTriggerTemper, accentuated by the fact that he's pretty much incapable of interacting, expressing, and explaining himself to others, and tends to resort to violence when words fail him... and also [[BloodKnight whenever he damn well feels like it, which is roughly all the time]]... All of this would qualify Carmine as one of the most unpleasant villains in fiction if it weren't for the fact that he's, first of all, [[WildCard unaffiliated with the actual villains of the game]], and, secondly, fully aware of his own social ineptitude and, beneath all the {{Maniacal Laugh}}s, doesn't have too well of an opinion of himself.

* Yuuki Terumi from ''Franchise/BlazBlue'' is a [[SirSwearsAlot crass, crude, rude,]] [[EvilIsHammy loud]] and ''extremely'' [[ItsAllAboutMe self-absorbed]] PoliticallyIncorrectVillain who's also pretty outspoken about his [[HopeCrusher rather]] [[ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil controversial]] [[OmnicidalManiac goals.]] All of this kinda, sorta, totally gets in the way of his attempts to be a ManipulativeBastard, but he's also aware enough of his flaw that he has an artificial human made for him that he then takes DemonicPossession of, allowing the construct to speak for him while filtering out most of his unpleasantries.

** The Gosei Angels in ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' suffer from this to some extent, though the Landicks are slightly less affected than the other three.
** Hiromu Sakurada in ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters'', who is blunt, rude and BrutallyHonest often with no idea that he's said or done anything wrong; and has little idea of how to interact with others. Interestingly, he is the only team member who grew up outside of EMC, whereas Ryuji and Yoko (who have spent most of their lives there) are fairly normal. However, they do show occasional signs of this, such as in one episode where they don't seem to know how to dress outside of uniform and wear very outdated clothes to go to an amusement park.

** ''Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger'' has two examples, both dramatic and hilarious:
*** Naga Ray, who comes from Spock expy race that supressed their emotions to achieve peace. Naga himself ''wants'' to have emotions and tries to learn how to express them and be as good with people as his partner, [[SilverTongue Balance]]. He practiced smiling in the mirror and tried to match up the correct expressions and feels to the situation at hand. The effort payed off in the [[CharacterDevelopment end]].
*** Stinger. Suicide mission? No problem. Apologize to his team? Impossible without stuttering and looking like anxiety eats him from inside out. He UsedToBeASweetChild, but being bullied by other tribesmen and watching his formerly kind brother slide towards becoming a power hungry BloodKnight messed him up a bit even before the ''really'' bad stuff happened. Opening up to his team and spending time with them helped him become less akward as time passed.

** Near is also quite awkward and seems unlikely to get by if he had to fend for himself in the normal world. Oddly, despite their practical problems, they both possesses great theoretical knowledge of people. His rival Mello left the Wammy's House orphanage where they were both raised at the age of 14 and is quite street-savvy in comparison.

* In ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpaV3'', Shuichi Saihara is good at reasoning and all that, but he isn't too good with socializing with others.[[spoiler: Which also led to his fear of revealing the truth about murders.]] He makes friends, but he is still a SociallyAwkwardHero.

to:

* Ironically, in ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' both [[TheBeastmaster Gundham]] [[TroubledButCute Tanaka]] and [[TheEngineer Kazuichi]] [[{{Adorkable}} Soda]] are both like this, but choose to handle it entirely differently, with Gundham being a hammy {{Chuunibyou}} who talks in an extremely melodramatic fashion and dresses like a goth, while Kazuichi dresses like a delinquent and tries to act cool to cover up his dorky, [[NervousWreck easily-startled]] personality. The fact both of them have a DarkAndTroubledPast and were bullied in their youth is a large contributing factor.

Despite this, she's [[InnocentlyInsensitive not actually malicious]] and is using her rowdy, LargeHam persona to [[PaperTiger cover up the shy weakling she used to be.]] Then there's Ki-bo, who is a robot and thus rather oblivious to confusing human customs and tends to be treated as MyFriendsAndZoidberg despite his friendly personality.

* Some examples from ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'':
** In Ash's group, there's Iris, [[ParentalAbandonment who was abandoned by her birth parents as a baby]] and [[RaisedByWolves raised by a family of Dragon-type Pokémon.]] As a result, she doesn't ''quite'' know how to interact with humans, and can be quite blunt on how she says things. One of the biggest examples is asking Misty, without any kind of preamble or subtlety, what was her relationship with Ash, then stating that she plans to put the moves on Ash once she figures out how human courtship works, depite knowing that Misty has indeed a crush on him as well (albeit in her defense, Iris thought that, like with Dragonites, poligamy is the norm with humans).
** Red as well. He's a bit of loner and doesn't seem to like getting too close to people more than necessary, and as a result he lets Yellow handle the talking for him.
