* Saint Alphonsus Liguori suffered from a religious version of OCD, known as scrupulosity. It's also theorized that Martin Luther may have been afflicted with it as well, but as these theories also move into trying to explain the Catholic-Protestant split, [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment so let's leave it at that.]]

* ''Series/TheLastEnemy'' has the protagonist, a brillian mathematician, who has an advanced form of OCD. When we first see him, he's on a plane wearing a ''hazmat suit'' because the guy next to him is coughing. He then runs to the bathroom and proceeds to thoroughly wash his hands... which he does through the series. Surprisingly, it's mostly related to cleanliness, so we never see him watch where he steps or repeat certain actions just because. When his ex meets him, she gives him a disinfectant wipe after they come out of a church.

When we first see him, he's on a plane wrapped in a blanket and wearing a ''hazmat suit'' heavy-duty mask and sitting stock upright to avoid physical contact. Then, because the guy next to him is coughing. He then coughing, he runs to the bathroom and proceeds to thoroughly wash his hands... which turns out to be a habit he does through throughout the series.

* ''Series/{{Whitechapel}}'' has Joseph Chandler, a homicide detective, who is incredibly obsessed with neatness, as well as things being clean. His OCD is bad enough that he often stays at the Homicide Department overnight, making everything neat for the next day...only for him to end up spending the entire night doing this. It should be noted, however, that while most of the examples of SuperOCD are PlayedForLaughs, Chandler's OCD is shown as an illness and a serious issue, rather then something used for comedy.

He also has counting rituals that can become so debilitating that he is stuck in place for hours going through them even as he becomes more distraught at not being able to stop.

* ''Film/AsGoodAsItGets'' plays this for drama, with JackNicholson's character showing several common OCD fixations, like being unable to walk on the lines between paving stones and only using disposable forks, even in restaurants. And those are the pedestrian quirks. The really bad stuff is needing to have several ''dozen'' pre-packaged soap bars to wash his hands with, because he'll only use one for a few seconds before throwing it away. A new soap bar every trip to the bathroom? Sure, cuts down on germ exposure. ''Three or four'' every time you wash your hands? Holy crap.

* Marc Summers, the host of ''[[Series/DoubleDare1986 Double Dare]]'' and ''What Would You Do?'' has OCD. These were two of the messiest and most disorganized games ever to hit TV. He mentions that going to work every day was a battle and he was actually happy when both shows went off the air. This has the effect of making him a major BadAss amongst fans. You can now see him as the host of ''Unwrapped'' on the Creator/FoodNetwork. Pay attention to the table where the various foods he's talking about are laid out. Everything is ordered and laid out very specifically.

* LeonardoDiCaprio has it as well. He steadfastly fights it at every turn, claiming that he refuses to step through doorways multiple times or step on every patch of chewing gum on the pavement that he sees to stop it taking over his life. [[DudeNotFunny Must be an absolute]] [[SarcasmMode killer when he's]] [[YouBastard learning his lines]]...\\

He also played the above-mentioned Howard Hughes in ''Film/TheAviator'', and the Stunt-coordinator for ''Film/{{Inception}}'' mentioned in the making-of how he loved to work with Leonardo since he could create the most death-defying stunts with only a square-foot of safe area on the set, trusting Leonardo with a 100% certainty that he would hit that foot on cue every time.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/JoanCrawford was a sufferer too. She said that she'd never accept cigarettes from another person's packet and would clean the door handles in her house after visitors left. Allegedly, when a plumber worked in her bathroom and used her toilet, she had the pipes re-replaced.

* Amanda from ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw'' is a ScheduleFanatic who always wants everything to be as organized and predictable as possible. [[ThePollyanna Milo]] has [[OppositesAttract a crush]] on her, but he's BornUnlucky and TheJinx, so Amanda's need for order makes her even more nervous around him than most people.

** Rarity has difficulty tearing herself away from fixing a messy bookcase despite the presence of a much bigger problem, namely the tree that crashed into Twilight's house (which happen to cause said messy bookcase). See also the bird's nest bit in "Winter Wrap-Up". Also, when she is [[spoiler:temporarily given Rainbow Dash's cutie mark]] in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Magical Mystery Cure]]", she keeps the clouds organized in a checkerboard-like formation. And in the BadFuture of Sweetie Belle's NightmareSequence in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E20ForWhomTheSweetieBelleToils For Whom The Sweetie Belle Toils]], she ends up spending the rest of her life as a mad recluse, obsessively checking and rechecking her work for mistakes.
