* Oz from ''PandoraHearts'' should be the poster boy for this trope. He's determined to be cute and cheerful in the face of horror so his friends won't worry about him, but that doesn't last long. He was [[ParentalAbandonment abandoned by his own father]] and called ‘filthy’ when he was trying to get his father’s attention. And then [[spoiler: his father]] sent him to [[{{Hell}} the Abyss]] because of the sin of ‘existing.’ This is just the ''first chapter.''

* The main character of ''Manga/ElfenLied'', Lucy, started out as this, and was tormented from a young age by the other children for being different.
