to:

* ''The Sanctuary Telepath'' - after they successfully exorcise the elemental both siblings' arms are covered in burn marks which serve as a symbol of the psychological scars the elemental's torture and the isolation inflicted on them. In the universe where John dies in the process the scars become a symbol of Janine's grief as well.

* Hanako Ikezawa in ''KatawaShoujo'' has severe burn scars from a childhood tragedy and [[ShrinkingViolet crippling]] [[FragileFlower shyness]] as a result of them. [[spoiler: Losing both of her parents in the house fire that gave her the scars]] probably didn't help either. Being isolated [[spoiler: in the OrphanageOfLove]] and later [[spoiler: bullied in her old school]] also probably didn't help. It also made her into a [[spoiler: BirthdayHater]].

* The Seablite gang from Literature/DarkLife have both physical and psychological scars from [[spoiler: their time as Doc's unwilling experimental subjects.]]
* In [[WarchildSeries Cagebird]], Yuri's cutting scars represent his change from willing participant to [[spoiler: unwilling victim of Falcone's pirates.]] The very act of cutting itself is used to symbolize times when Yuri's too stressed to even address his emotions in the narration.
* ''[[ASongOfIceAndFire A Dance With Dragons]]'': [[spoiler:Theon]] is [[ColdBloodedTorture tortured]] physically, including everything from probable castration to [[FlayingAlive flaying]]. The psychological effects include a complete loss of identity, possible insanity, and a [[StockholmSyndrome rather twisted relationship]] with his torturer. Also of note is Sandor Clegane, known to most of Westeros as 'The Hound'. His massive and horrific burn scars across one entire side of his face are both the indicant and causation of his bitter, angry demeanour.

* Kurei from FlameOfRecca has these in spades. Along with having a self inflicted burn scar as a MarkOfShame due to his failure to protect someone, he's endured at least fifteen years of every kind of abuse by his monster of an adoptive father.

Added DiffLines:

* Austin from ''Literature/HollowPlaces'' has burns scars all over his body, a prosthetic right arm, and is missing the sight in one eye. All serve as reminders for the day he lost his sister to an attack drone, a loss he blames himself for. His half-blindness can be seen as symbolic for his overall view of himself.

* ''PersonOfInterest:'' Mr. Finch's limp and fused neck vertebrae are the result of being caught in the same explosion that killed his partner Nathan (and, it's implied, several dozen other people). Injured and on the run from the government agents that planted the bomb, he finds out that [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone he could have prevented the explosion]] if he hadn't been stubborn about the Machine.
