* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' ultimately invokes the question of whether the world's professional therapists chose to have their 2194 Christmas Ball in [[KillEmAll Ibukido]], as the cast is largely a DysfunctionJunction with their own issues tormenting them. Even Kagura Mutsuki, the most well-adjusted of them, is a veteran of the Ikaruga Civil War with some mental stigma left over, and that's if [[HandsomeLech his crotch rocket isn't hogging the blood]]. Even worse, of the characters who can actually dispense functional therapy, all of them have their own problems: Litchi is weighed down by her GuiltComplex regarding Roy Carmine (who we know as Arakune) and has gone so far as to mimic his corruption in an attempt to cure him herself; Makoto is trying to keep her personal Pandora's Box of racism issues shut; and Celica is utterly naive and has a bit of a martyr complex to go with it. And that is not to speak of Yuuki Terumi and Relius Clover, who not only are [[{{Sociopath}} mentally unsound]] (Terumi moreso), but go around making everything ''worse''.

[[FridgeBrilliance This might have]] [[JustifiedTrope the justifications]] in the way that compared to its predecessor ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' (which draws heavy influence in American music), Blazblue is ''very'' Japanese-themed, not only its anime influence, but also Japan's real life cultural aversion on psychology.

** In fact, a running gag among multiple reviewers is their constant danger of insanity due to the bad things they are "forced" to experience. Plenty of reviews have gags where the reviewer pops "happy pills" like they were candy, chugs from a bottle of booze, or is forcibly restrained by men in white coats. Some have even tried to destroy the world in a bout of rage. [[TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] deserves special mention as a full-on insane convicted serial killer.

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': Discussed. When Shinji and Asuka arrive on Avalon, they meet Ching, who is actually a trained therapist. But she won't act as one unless one of them ask her to, and so she told them.

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': The districts don't largely seem to have therapists, leaving the traumatized victors to relive their nightmares yearly as they're forced to participate in the games (though it's implied that Katniss' mother was able to somehow gain access to one in order to get hold of drugs to treat her depression). {{Exploited|Trope}} by the Capitol to make them broken beyond repair and thus unable to fight back. Subverted in [[spoiler:District 13]]: all refugees are given psychological help and local specialists do everything they can to get [[spoiler:Peeta]] back to his old self after a MindRape. Before [[spoiler:the final attack on the Capitol]], soldiers are checked for possible psychological problems. ([[spoiler:Johanna]] gets sent to a mental facility). Katniss also goes through therapy after [[spoiler:her sisterís death]].

* ''Fanfic/HigherLearning'': Since neither of the pilots had any therapy in spite of their blatant psychological traumas and the pressure and distress associated with being ChildSoldiers, Kaoru's plan to [[spoiler:avert Third Impact]] was becoming his teacher and giving them therapy and counseling surreptitiously.

* {{Subverted| trope}} in ''Westeranimation/{{The Tick}}'' with Big Shot, a {{parody}} of {{nineties antihero}}es in general and Comicbook/{{The Punisher}} in particular. In "The Tick vs The Ideamen", he is a clearly unstable maniac who riddles random things with bullets until they resemble skulls; the Tick warns him that "Guns and superheroes don't mix. Seek professional help." When he reappears in "The Tick vs The Tick", he has been to therapy and, while he still has anger issues, he has them under control and is overall a calm, stable man who even invites the other Tick to attend his group sessions to work out his own issues.

* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' fanfics sometime have [[ManipulativeBastard Darcy]] as the only decent one on Magix. In ''FanFic/TheInfiniteLoops'' she boasts of being the best of the Magical Dimension... Before admitting that she's also the only one who knows what she's doing, and that she's only decent when compared to Earth therapists.
