* Skipper, a WWII Corsair, from ''WesternAnimation/{{Planes}}'' is this, having lost his entire squadron on their first mission. It traumatized him so badly, that he cannot even bring himself to fly any more, which is pretty significant considering he's a ''plane.''

* Spoofed in ''Film/{{Airplane}}!'', where the protagonist is a shell shocked fighter pilot who ends up having to fly a jet airliner.
** This was taken directly from ''Film/ZeroHour!'', from which ''Airplane!'' was adapted.

* In ''Fanfiction/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', Shining Armor shows signs of increasing paranoia and obsession as a direct result of Chrysalis' mind control. Estermann and the ex-soldier Mjoberg lampshade this heavily.

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' gives a myriad of examples, due to most of the cast being ChildSoldiers, and many being former Human Debris, slaves sold to fight and die as cannon fodder. The protagonist, Mikazuki, is shown to disassociate to an extreme degree, allowing all of his decisions to be made by his friend Orga. And he is far from alone in this, as we see Tekkadan's younger members demand to watch as Mika disassembles an enemy commander who killed one of their own. Finally, on the opposing side we have Ein, a rookie pilot who is eventually consumed by his anger and guilt due to the death of his superior officer at Tekkadan's hands. [[spoiler:It ends with what's left of his body being installed inside a mobile suit, snarling at the Gundam as he rants about Crank and wildly flails his axes in hopes of crushing Mika.]]

* ''Film/StopLoss'' is considered a SpiritualSuccessor to ''The Best Years of Our Lives'', highlighting the troubles of returning Iraq War soldiers. One character in particular is an alcoholic who can't relate to his wife, and she opts to just slap him with a restraining order rather than deal with him. The protagonist also has hallucinations and nightmares over all the people he's killed.

*** OriginalCharacter, Junichi Nakayima, a former grunt turned spy, also has a case, but it is {{Downplayed| Trope}}. Though he is quite mentally stable, he notes that his experiences in the military admittedly has damaged him psychologically and made it hard for him to care for and relate emotionally the people around him, he also makes references to having been ordered to do several questionable things on the frontlines he has since come to regret, and in hindsight he considers his decision to join the army to be a pivotal mistake, if not his worst mistake ever.
