** The most notable happens in the second season, considering Alois' whole life is a bit of Fridge Horror. After his little brother and entire village are killed, this already slightly off boy (who laughed cheerfully as he robbed the dead) begins living as a true city street rat. Knowing how things like that work out, and especially after seeing his reactions to things later on, it's quite obvious that this young boy solicited himself for food or shelter before he even hit a double digit age. Think about this: Jim is only around 11 when he goes to Earl Trancy's manor. There, he living with a bunch of boys in the same condition, being bathed and treated like cattle, all while being a sex slave to an old man. At the age of 11. It's quite obvious even then he is not a virgin, as he dolls up and puts on a beautiful red robe, seducing the old man expertly until the guy's kissing his feet. He even becomes the favorite boy, taking place for the man's son who vanished as a baby - the real Alois Trancy which allows him to take the name Alois after Claude kills the Earl. Episode 8 shows that Alois was raped by the former Lord Trancy. It's implied that this helped make him so Ax-Crazy he's shown to have been a little off-kilter even before the event, having joked about his entire village dying and happily looted their corpses when they actually did, but his violent tendencies seem to date from it, not to mention his compulsive promiscuity.
** Ciel is implied to have been raped in addition to [[SlaveBrand other]] [[ForceFeeding tortures]] [[TraumaCongaLine he]] [[DealWithTheDevil endured]] when being held captive by a fanatical cult. Poor Ciel who UsedToBeASweetKid becomes a ByronicHero who's greatest wish in life is to get revenge on those who caused him and his family to suffer such humiliation. In chapter 71, when Maurice rips apart Ciel's shirt with scissors, it seems indicated that this is from Ciel's traumatic history. Some flashbacks Ciel had during the Ship Arc reveal that before being sacrificed, Ciel had his shirt ripped apart with a knife, cut the same way Maurice tore the shirt.

This trope can also result from {{Gaslighting}} the victim -- that is, making him or her question their own recollection of the assault. If enough people question whether or not they consented, or even if there ''was'' a rape at all, this can kickstart the issues mentioned above.

This reaction can be TruthInTelevision, but not a UniversalTrope. No two people react to a traumatic experience in exactly the same way, even when exposed to the same trauma and there is no "right way" to cope. Professional counseling is advised regardless of how well they react to the initial trauma because the right therapist can prevent lingering issues from festering and [[CharacterDevelopment developing into a mental health issue]].

Rape can be a profoundly horrifying experience; affecting the victim, [[AttemptedRape potential victim]], witness, even on [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone the rapist themselves]]. Effects on mental health can trigger or exacerbate disorders like depression and/or SanitySlippage. The event can be traumatic enough that the person never recovers. This is typically used as a subtrope of RapeAsDrama or RapeAsBackstory, to justify a character's attitudes/behaviours. Because of the sensitive subject [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment don't opine on how accurate the fictional portrayal is.]]

RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil and a profoundly horrifying experience, not only on the victim but on someone who happened to be unfortunate enough to witness it; even sometimes on [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone the rapist themselves]]. [[MindRape It can have serious effects on the survivor's mental health]], sometimes triggering or exacerbating disorders like depression and/or lead to SanitySlippage, as can AttemptedRape. TruthInTelevision insofar as many victims of sexual assault have some form of PTSD, and their recovery is often hindered if the criminal is not brought to justice and/or they [[ThereAreNoTherapists do not feel they have the sympathy and support of others]] (close to them). That said, most victims manage to keep themselves together as they cope with the event(s) and many others regain emotional control at some stage in the recovery process -- very few people actually go mad (and stay that way) as a result of being sexually assaulted. In all cases, one thing is true, however -- the personality of the victim, and not the nature of the sexual assault(s)[[note]] Not to say it's totally irrelevant, but its importance is often overstated. While there is an 'average' reaction -- calm, deep hurt -- [[LiesDamnedLiesAndStatistics it's just an average.]] It doesn't represent any one person's reaction in particular[[/note]], determines the victim's reaction to and ability to cope with the trauma ([[NoSell or their lack thereof, for a lucky few]])[[note]]Not to say they weren't hurt by it or don't seek justice, just that they don't have mental-health problems as a result of their experiences.[[/note]].

Interestingly, the assumption that this trope is true is actually deeply unhelpful. As we said, most people take sexual assault pretty calmly -- so if most people believe that all victims of sexual assault are deeply unbalanced/driven insane by it, this means they think that anyone who ''doesn't'' have this reaction (i.e. most victims) is lying[[note]]Of course, unfortunately the other side is that a common effect of such trauma is a decision to lie and bottle it up; how many victims are truly not traumatized is difficult to measure.[[/note]].

While this isn't too great on its own, there's also the wider implications of that. If people automatically assume someone is lying if they take it calmly, then at least a few people are going to reason that they might as well not report the damned thing because no-one is going to believe them. ''This'' is bad because it means the crime and the criminal are never investigated and, in the eyes of everyone but the victim and criminal, [[KarmaHoudini the crime was never committed]]. Perhaps more importantly, the victim is also less likely to seek counselling for the trauma and this will let any lingering problems it stirs up, well, [[ShapedLikeItself linger]] and fester. In a way this can be something of a SelfFulfillingProphecy for the whole 'RapeLeadsToInsanity' thing as one would expect that lowered counselling rates would result in greater mental illness among the untreated trauma-victims.

A final problem comes back to the 'individuality' thing: there isn't a One True Path ([[TradeSnark tm]]) to recovery from trauma (of any kind) -- some people who "compartmentalise" the trauma or who dissociate from it (basically, they [often very successfully] avoid ever thinking about it) might benefit from therapy directed to help them acknowledge and therefore help diminish the pain and emotions of it, whereas others would expressly ''not'' benefit from such therapy because they have the opposite problem and ''just can't stop thinking about it''. Yet, unfortunately, there are plenty of people willing to be judgmental about, if not sexual assault itself, the "proper" way to think about and recover from it!

** * Zigzagged all over the place in ''Manga/HaouAiren''. [[spoiler:Reilan was driven to bitterness and insanity after she gets gangraped by the mooks of her fiancé Hakuron's rival and forced into prostitution]], and she gets so broken that [[spoiler:she invokes the trope via setting her love rival Kurumi to be gangraped in front of Hakuron himself to specifically mess with the girl's mind. Even when Kurumi is rescued, Reilan uses this as a part of a ''ThanatosGambit'' as well, so she gets broken anyway -- but by the end, she gets ''somewhat'' better.]] And also, [[spoiler:Kurumi is raped ''by Hakuron himself'' in front of a newfound friend... and ''that friend'' [[GoMadFromTheRevelation is the one who goes crazy instead]], which leads him to ultimately [[TheHeroDies shoot Hakuron dead]].]]
