added Eden Green
to:
* The title character in ''Literature/EdenGreen'' is a rationalist young woman infected with an alien needle symbiote that gradually takes over her body. Her intelligence is her main weapon, and her greatest fear is losing it to the symbiote's survival-obsessed instincts.

Alphabetized list of tropes.
->''"It's your sense of alienation from self that provides, perhaps, the deepest terror. Where other meters measure how traumatized you are by the things that happen to you, Self measures how traumatized you are by your own reactions to those things. To put it another way, the only thing you can ever really be 100% sure of is "I think, therefore I am." The Self meter measures how uncertain you are about the "I" in that statement."''

* ''NeonGenesisEvangelion'': all the main cast, but Shinji Ikari might be the poster boy for this trope. A person with very high moral standards, but a weak and tender heart that cannot shoulder them against the odds. He develops a ''bad'' case of self-loathing, reaching a DespairEventHorizon after the final angel and a MoralEventHorizon for himself after DudeShesLikeInAComa.

* In TheFilmOfTheBook of ''Film/{{FourteenOhEight}}'', the overall schtick of the titular hotel room seems to be dragging guests kicking and screaming through the darkest corners of their own subconscious and beating them over the head with their own doubts, fears, and regrets. Mike Enslin discovers this to his extreme detriment.
