* ''Film/Godzilla1954''gives us Daisuke Serizawa, a brilliant but quiet scientist who wears a eyepatch. The reason he does so is because he's fought in World War II. The end result is losing his left eye and a horrible scar. And as the creator of the Oxygen Destroyer, he makes it clear he did not want to use it as a weapon, but the titular monster utterly destroys his hometown of Tokyo, forcing him to change his mind and use it against Godzilla.

* Creator/IshiroHonda, the creator of the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' series, became this after World War II. He was originally a optimistic man with a positive outlook on life. Alas, World War II happened, and he became a foot soldier. When he saw Hiroshima after it was hit by the Little Boy atom bomb, his life changed forever. Since then, ''Film/Godzilla1954'' was based on his PTSD of Hiroshima, and plenty of his films will end in a BittersweetEnding.

* The film ''Film/{{Windtalkers}}'' begins by showing Sgt. Joe Enders fighting the Imperial Japanese Army in WW2, which also shows events that leads to him being shell-shocked; events that would play a major role in developing his character throughout the film and how events proceeds.

* While talking about PTSD and Battle Fatigue was taboo in WW2, not every unit treated it lightly. The 8th Air Force for example decided very shortly after commencing regular daylight raids on Occupied Europe (and the maiming of bomber formations that came with it), that after a crew flew so many missions, they were to be sent home. And while 24 missions sounded good on paper, before [[CoolPlane P51 Mustangs]] started taking the bombers all the way to their targets and back, it was seen as almost impossible. On top of that, many German pilots specifically targeted bombers that had a large number of missions to try and break the will of the crews. Needless to say, the fact that ''any'' bomber crew hit the magic number before 1944 can be counted as a major miracle.

* Chiaki Nanami in ''Fanfic/ExtraLife'' is left traumatized and afflicted with PTSD after [[Anime/DanganRonpa3 her torture]]. Besides having nightmares, [[TraumaButton the sight of an elevator causes her to flashback to the ordeal]], and she feels guilty for surviving when her friends came out, in her opinion, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy worse]]. She actually does get therapy from [[TheAce Izuru Kamukura]], and while that does help her learn to live with it, she's still haunted.

* Miss Henderson, the librarian at Whateley Academy in the ''WhateleyUniverse''. She's the only survivor of a CosmicHorror experience. And probably Phase's mother, whose horrific trauma was when she was only six, and she's never really recovered from it.

* All of the Literature/{{Animorphs}} become this by the end of the series. Jake is the most obvious/classic form of this, Marco is of the "successful life empty inside" kind. Also, Loren describes her father as a shell of his former self ever since he came home from Vietnam.

He is already like this in ''The Andalite Chronicles'' and he even has a PetTheDog moment with Loren when he defends her father from Chapman's insensitive remarks. In ''The Hork-Bajir Chronicles'' we see a younger Alloran become the disgraced veteran that Elfangor meets in ''The Andalite Chronicles''. The image of Alloran painted in both books makes it clear that he's been deeply traumatized by the atrocities he witnessed [[spoiler:and ''committed'']] during the war against the Yeerks.

** Jake's grandfather was a World War II vet who, while no details are given, clearly saw a lot and never fully recovered. Jake gives a lot of thought to the possibility of ending up like him over the course of book 33. Interestingly, he saw a lot of his "old soul" in Jake before the series even began.
