* Youtuber LittleKuriboh, known for his Abridged Series, revealed in 2014 to have been diagnosed with depression, which destroyed his creative output for a while. Since then, he has released a series of vlogs called "We're Still Here," chronicling his struggle while also giving positive life experiences, which is meant to help both him and others who have gone through the same thing. Doing that seems to have helped him get better.
** He recently modified the format of "We're Still Here" to have some people he knows tell their stories of struggling with depression when he doesn't have anything to say. His first guest was voice actor/parody writer/singer Jessi Nowack, who revealed to have depression possibly caused by holding herself to extremely high standards due to having a military man for a stepfather. Therapy sessions, coming out of the closet, and [[ItMakesSenseInContext getting a tattoo of a fainting goat]] have helped her start to get better.

** And then there is Smokey Quartz, a combination of Amethyst and Steven who shares both of their fun-loving natures and is almost always smiling, but also shares both of their insecurities. When Smokey fails the self-deprecating jokes are noticeably harsh.

* Some fans of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' have pegged Pinkie Pie as one of these. In "Party of One", the constantly-cheerful party pony is quick to fall into a funk when she thinks her friends don't want to come to her parties or be friends with her anymore.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': In "Appleoosa's Most Wanted" Trouble Shoes is this played as straight as they come. He's constantly getting into accidents through either his terrible clumsiness or just plain bad luck, and bemoans his fate just as often, even when he's not at fault!

* Comedian KennethWilliams (known for his appearances in ''Radio/HancocksHalfHour'' and the ''Film/CarryOn'' movies) was depressed for most of his adult life, and wrote about it, as well as suicidal thoughts, in his diaries. This was mostly due to his homosexuality and beliefs of being the only one suffering from {{Gayngst}} (he frequently wrote that other gay men seemed to be dealing with it better than he was). He died in 1988 after overdosing on antidepressants, making many debate whether it was an accident or not.

* In "The Greatest Show On Earth" the reason for the Clown's sadness, and that he never allows himself to be seen without his make up, is revealed; he is a doctor, on the run from the police because he euthenased his terminally ill wife. And he's James Stewart (Aaaaaarrrrrggghhh!)

** Godot, the primary prosecutor of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney - Trials and Tribulations''. Drinks 17 cups of coffee in one ''trial session'' with increasingly nonsensical metaphors for each cup, and at a few points throws his mug at Phoenix making for one of the most amusing sprite animations in the game...and has a past of [[spoiler:being poisoned and left in a coma for five years, waking up at the smell of coffee with severe colorblindness only to discover that his apprentice and ImpliedLoveInterest is dead, which he promptly blames Phoenix for despite having no logical claim...as a cover-up for the belief that he blames ''himself'' for it.]]

-->'''Trevor:''' Is that sarcasm?
-->'''Michael:''' Oh, you're [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] A-right it's sarcasm! You fuck! A few weeks ago, I was happily retired, sulking by my swimming pool, and my psychotic best friend shows up out of nowhere to torture me over mistakes I made, honest mistakes I made over a decade ago! We, our little posse, are flat fucking broke, but hey, let's go out and spend two million dollars on a tandem rotor fucking chopper, so I can go steal nerve gas from fucking terrorists! Forgive me, you ignorant fuck, but sarcasm is all I've fucking got! '''[[SuddenlyShouting SARCASM!]]''' And a room full of you cunts!

Added DiffLines:

** Michael himself also qualifies, especially first half of the game, he admits how he's messed up as a whole -- his issues with his family, his return into the criminal world, and Trevor himself. His sarcasm is the only thing that locks him away from bad situations. He finally got better when he and his family got together. However, in the [[spoiler:Kill Trevor ending]], Michael relapses into this post-game, in reverence of his regret of killing his once best friend.
