* Ash in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' is a downplayed example. While he's not secretly wallowing in despair, he has his moments, especially when he's reminded of something he lost from the original timeline, and he can't share his pain with anyone else but his Pokémon.

* Italy is this in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'' as he hid his insecurities and anxieties from Germany and Japan with brilliant smiles. His façade only cracked when [[spoiler:he saw Germany and Japan [[CockFight beat each other up]] over him.]]

* The author of FanFic/TravelsThroughAzerothAndOutland writes [[WorldOfWarcraft draenei]] rather like [[Literature/GreenSkyTrilogy Kindar]]. You do, however, get a few eccentrics ([[PerkyGoth Vasalyan]]), basket cases ([[BrokenBird Balaa]]), and characters who mean well but really don't ''get'' other races ([[GoodShepherd Kastoor]]).

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/8793565/chapters/20159878 How the Light Gets In]]'', Laurel has been suffering from chronic depression, addiction, and an anxiety disorder all her life, so ''all'' her smiles have shades of this. A specific instance of this happens at the end of chapter 3, where Dean notes of her smile at Oliver:
-->"It's one of those soft, sweet, unwaveringly kind smiles of hers meant to comfort. Dean knows these smiles of hers well. About half the time, they're a lie. She uses them to draw people's attention away from her trembling hands. She was so irritated when they stopped working on him."

* Since both Starfire and Beast Boy have extremely troubled pasts in the comics, their attitudes in the series are portrayed as this in any number of fics.

* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' fanfics about [[CheerfulChild Keef]] are pretty rare, but those that exist often portray him as having neglectful of abusive parents. Given JhonenVasquez' style, this is entirely plausible (compare ''{{Squee}},'' for example.)

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2693964/3/The-Demon-s-Contract The Demon's Contract]], Kasumi Tendo is deeply broken from being forced to be the caretaker for her family since she was nine years old. While everyone reacted normally (for them) to Ranma's rampage before he goes back in time, Kasumi simply kept on smiling, even when Ranma explicitly said he was going to kill her. After he used pressure points to break down her mental barriers, Kasumi cries, curses, and breaks everything in sight before taking it out on the one she blames most for her life: her father.

* [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Mitsuzane Kureshima]] in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11772125/1/Metroid-Kamen-Rider-Generations-Full-Series Metroid: Kamen Rider Generations]]'' is both the Type A and B example, combined with [[StepfordSnarker poorly cynical sarcasm]] in spades. Deep inside, he is heavily insecured with guilt because of the actions he committed in the past. As the story progresses, Mitsuzane starts depending on new friends -- [[Series/KamenRiderDrive Gou]] in particular since Kouta and Mai are now colonizing a new planet, and a SecondLove -- [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Samus]], to keep himself at check.
