* In ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'', Shinji and Asuka were deeply traumatized after the Angel War and [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Third Impact]]. The AfterTheEnd chapters narrate how they were forced to mature and overcome their issues in order to survive, and how they got better eventually.

The war never ended for this guy. They've [[WarIsHell seen]] and [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone done]] things that [[ThereAreNoTherapists no amount of therapy]] will ever completely heal (see the RealLife section below, though), and it's left them so irrevocably scarred they have trouble [[TheStoic feeling, emoting, and caring]] about the people around them and themselves. If they continue to feel anything at all, it's usually restricted to SurvivorGuilt. Thus they're usually the first to [[IDidWhatIHadToDo do what must be done]] and ShootTheDog.

** Kira's entire character arc is about recovering from this. She starts out as obstructive and mistrustful of Star Fleet, but gradually realizes how the emotional baggage she picked up as a freedom fighter can compromise her job and put Bajor at risk.

* Marv from ''SinCity'' is implied to be one. He says he fought in a war, he has a gruesomely scarred face, has an unnamed mental condition, is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and tends to fly into psychotic rages.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'': The horrible experiences he went through in the One Year War made Amuro "Shooting Star" Ray one of these. He only recovered 7 years later, in ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam.'' Side materials reveal that it took him just a little longer to get back into space because he was afraid [[LostLenore Lalah]] would be there.

* Detective Adrian Pimento in ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'' spent twelve years working undercover for a vicious mobster, and as a result of the things he did is not quite... stable. In his first appearance he held a knife to Jake's throat and destroyed his keyboard yelling "Machine!". It's all PlayedForLaughs.

* ''Anime/AldnoahZero'' has Koichiro Marito, a survivor of the first war between Earth and Mars. He personally bared witness to a HumongousMecha that was able to manipulate gravity, was present during "Heaven's Fall" when the moon shattered and rained meteors on Earth, and was forced to kill his best friend and tank co-pilot [[MercyKill to spare him a painful death from being trapped in a burning tank]]. The very latter event causes him to come down with severe PTSD.

Added DiffLines:

* At the very end of the classic ''TrafficDepartment2192'', player character Velasques has become one of these. Particularly stands out since she starts the game as a full-on HotBlooded CowboyCop on a non-stop RoaringRampageOfRevenge - seemingly determined to singlehandedly wipe out every last soldier of the Vulture Cult Army for killing her father in front of her when she was 11. But after several campaigns, seeing [[KillEmAll countless fellow officers and friends die during the course of her crusade]], narrowly avoiding death numerous times (including being [[StuffBlowingUp blown up]] and [[WeCanRebuildHim patched back together again as a cyborg]] at one point) and more or less directly causing the [[ApocalypseHow destruction of her homeworld]] - all for her vengeance... she's just so, so tired.

* All the men in ''Series/PeakyBlinders'' were in WWI, and none of them came home the same. The worst effected is Danny Whizz-Band, but Arthur is a close second, with Tommy coming in third.

* A large number the supporting cast in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' is this - the CrapsackWorld doesn't hold back. Cosmo [[spoiler: and her mother Hertia]] [[BrokenBird for starters]]. Tsali is one of the more disturbing versions of this, as his extreme PTSD simply makes him more AxCrazy to cope. Kaptain Firmus D'Arnazhee is left so traumatized by watching an entire entire star system getting exterminated that [[spoiler: he betrays Maledict on the spot when he finds out he was behind the Metarex War]]. Leon and Molly were left traumatized by the ColdBloodedTorture inflicted on them by Muslims.
