** Jonesy asks the Commander if he intends to fight [[TheBerserker Tank]] after he flips, but the Commander points out that even for him, getting into a fistfight with eighthundred pounds of juiced-up SuperSoldier with an "alpha male"-complex and a grudge is an idiot thing to do, and spends most of his time trying to stay just inside speech-range and talk Tank down.

*** During their altercation, Commander Badass gets away from Tank by walking into the sea, well aware that Tank can't swim because large parts of his body have been replaced with metal, and he just sinks when he tries.

*** And even despite Nale's status as the Order's enemy, Elan does ''not'' react well to seeing his father kill his twin in front of him, nor does he accept any of Tarquin's attempts to justify it- and Tarquin constantly talking about how they're in a story and how things have to go to make the story better doesn't endear him to Elan either, since he keeps talking about Nale like he was just a plot device and not a person. Elan ends up refusing to go along with Tarquin's plans, instead letting him fall off the airship as he knows the fall won't kill him.

** Commander Badass, when [[spoiler:falsely]] told by his superior all of his siblings are dead, he breaks down crying and asks for a therapist. When his superior tells him off for not bottling up his emotions and becoming a dark and brooding avenger, the offended Commander demands to see a lawyer.
** Commander Badass thinks a fight to the death with Gackt will [[NoOntologicalInertia cure his Nomura Syndrome]]. It doesn't.
** In a sense, the entire comic is about what happens when RealityEnsues to Manly Men with TestosteronePoisoning who are perfectly geared to survive environments where EverythingIsTryingToKillYou, but don't have the emotional tools to handle the ups and downs of mundane life.

doesn't. Canadian Guy more sensibly goes to the doctor for treatment.
** In a sense, the entire comic is about what happens when RealityEnsues to Manly Men with TestosteronePoisoning who are perfectly geared to survive environments where EverythingIsTryingToKillYou, but don't have the emotional tools to handle the ups and downs of mundane life. The comic takes place at a ''temp agency'' because many of them can't find work due to their backgrounds.



** Ex-military robot Bubbles has implied combat-related PTSD as well as severe misanthropy and depression due to the way veterans are regarded by society, combined with real-world concerns about how advancing technology is making warfare more impersonal and accessible (it's debatable whether robots in QC are considered people or machines). For comparison, the depressive, abrasive, maybe-recovering-alcoholic Faye is treated as an uplifting and outgoing social influence to Bubbles.
** Hannelore changing medications for her neuroses and consequently suffering weird side-effects has been played for laughs a few times.



** Since her parents refuse to pay her tuition, Aylia's only way to successfully enrol at the magical school is to get a scholarship as a teaching assistant. At the auditions, she goes in believing that her magical abilities and her unique and diverse life experience will surely get her a position... only to see the positions go to people who were more experienced as [=TAs=], or who knew the teachers, or who had more knowledge of the fields in question, leaving her stuck between a rock and a hard place until a rather whimsical teacher decides to take her on.

** [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0869.html When Belkar confronts Malack alone in the temple]], he spouts off a line about how the guys who say they have something to fight for always win. Then he attacks... And is promptly incapacitated with a single spell. [[RightMakesMight It turns out right doesn't make might]] when you're talking about a [[LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards poorly optimized Ranger/Barbarian]] with no Will save trying to take on a Cleric.

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' starts off with the usual WeirdnessCensor that is prevalent in works where TheMasquerade is in place. Unfortunately, as the comic progresses, it becomes obvious that, despite what the protagonists thought, random civilians who've witnessed supernatural occurrences don't suddenly forget they happened, they just try not to acknowledge that they did. From every time a MonsterOfTheWeek appears, to when the protagonists casually show off their superpowers, TheMasquerade has been breaking down, and the existence of magic is no longer a secret. Which leads to another RealityEnsues moment-- in TheUnmasquedWorld, where anyone can learn to use magic, what stops an amoral sociopath from getting superpowers? And becauuse PersonalityPowers is in effect, what kind of powers do you think that sociopath will get?

* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'': During the "Big Dumb Objects" arc, the research team has managed to translate an ancient Oafan star chart and pinpoint the current locations of several caches of advanced technology. Nearly all of them are long gone: over [[TimeAbyss the untold eons]] since they were established, they've either already been picked clean by other races or been destroyed by cosmic events. Of course they were. Someone was bound to find this stuff sooner or later. And no RagnarokProofing measures are perfect. If the sun blows up, there's not much anyone can do.
