*** Okay, now analyze Nagato, Sasuke and Naruto's situations: [[spoiler: All of them had their lives destroyed for/by the Leaf Village one way or the other. So why is Konoha the heroes, since they're TRAINED to Break Cuties!]]
*** Because it's [[spoiler:Madara's]] Fault
*** and [[spoiler:The Uchiha]] wouldn't negotiate
*** Killing [[spoiler:Nagato's parents]] was an accident, they even apologized too]]
*** [[SarcasmMode And we all know apologizing to a kid after killing his parents in front of him makes it all better!]]
*** Which is why he killed them on the spot. [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Taking it out on the whole world, on the other hand...]]
** Sakura now fits this trope. It went like this:
*** Sasuke's defection, then Naruto failed to bring him back.
*** Then Naruto went 4 tails against Orochimaru and Kabuto makes her realize it's at least partially because she made him promise to get Sasuke back and he agreed that he would, and he's still trying to do that no matter what
*** They find Sasuke but he leaves with Orochimaru and Kabuto
*** Danzou gives permission to have Sasuke whacked
*** Sai (of all people) get her to realize Naruto's feelings for her, and everything Naruto is going through: the burden of expectations she and the village pile on Naruto, and especially the suffering he's going through because of ''both'' her and Sasuke. Then Naruto also calls her out in her "love confession"
*** And ''then'', she tries to kill Sasuke herself and fails, since she just can't go and kill one of her dearest friends no matter how far gone he is.
*** And then Sasuke tries to kill her. If the girl doesn't end up as a BrokenBird, it'll be a '''miracle'''.

* [[spoiler:Fate Testarossa]] from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' is an inversion of this trope. When she is introduced, she is a cutie broken by severe emotional and physical abuse perpetrated by [[spoiler: her deranged MadScientist of a mother, Precia]]. Through ThePowerOfFriendship, a nice adoptive family and an interesting job, she ends up unbroken... But not before getting ''further'' broken shortly after being "[[DefeatMeansFriendship befriended]]" when she found out that [[spoiler:she was merely a clone of Precia's ''real'' daughter, Alicia]].

** In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', after [[IllGirl Hayate]] was given a surprise party by [[ThoseTwoGuys Suzuka, Alisa]], Nanoha, and Fate, [[spoiler: two mages disguised as the main leads brought Hayate to the roof of the hospital and told her that her disease was incurable and fatal. Then they showed her the remains of Signum and Shamal, two of the knights she had adopted as her family. Then they executed Vita, the knight she was closest to, right in front of her eyes. Oh, and all of this was done during [[ChristmasEpisode Christmas Eve]].]] ''[[BewareTheNiceOnes Snap]]''.
** One could argue that this trope was ''both'' played straight and inverted when it comes to Hayate. [[spoiler:She does get better, most of her loved ones are saved eventually and she ultimately grows into a successful levelheaded woman.]]
** Hayate is a pretty poor example. Despite going through that wringer, [[spoiler: her "breakdown" consisted of screaming for a moment and then having her body involuntarily taken. She wakes up in something like an hour and tells her body-hijacking servant that the whole "kill the world" thing it thought she wanted was a load of grade-A bullcrap, and helps the heroines take down the berserk system.]]

** Rinne in ''Anime/VividStrike'' sas picked on a lot as a kid for her background as a poor orphan, [[spoiler: and it only got worse after she started attending school and others found out that she was adopted. Her not being able to keep her adoptive grandfather's keepsake safe and to arrive in time to meet him before he died as a result of being knocked out by bullies was the final straw that turned her into a girl "who despises the weak".]]

* ''SeraphOfTheEnd'' has this in spades for Yuu and Mika. They started out as orphans who managed to create their own little family with the other children at the orphanage before they were taken by the vampires and treated like cattle. They all try to escape after Mika comes up with a plan, but said plan fails and all the children aside from Mika and Yuu are killed, while Mika is ripped apart. Yuu is forced to leave him behind and for the next three years he be leaves him to be dead. Meanwhile Mika is forced to become a [[YouAreWhatYouHate vampire]]. And that's just the first episode. All in all Yuu manages to handle this much better [[IAmAMonster than]] [[{{Yandere}} Mika]].

She witnesses a good part of Sango's breaking process, is confronted by her DarkMagicalGirl past self [[AlwaysSomeonebetter who was supposedly more expert and skilled than she is though she is canonically more powerful and succeeded where Kikyou failed]], doesn't know what her real place in the world is as she goes back and forth in past and present, and Naraku often '''directly''' seeks to break her mind. [[TheScrappy But her haters refuse to see it and cal her "whiny", "bitch", "whore", and "jerk".]]
