* In ''Heroes'' sequel series, ''Series/HeroesReborn'', Molly Walker and Phoebe Frady became two more casualties in the show's universe.
** Molly witnessed her parents' murder, was kidnapped by Sylar, and spent most of her adolescence on the run and in hiding from the Company's various iterations until she was captured by Renautas Corporation and forcibly plugged into their EPIC system, culminating in her suicide to prevent Erica Kravid from discovering important information.
** Phoebe was initially excited to discover she had the ability to control shadows, which brought her on Renautas' radar. She was subsequently framed alongside Mohinder Suresh for bombing a peace event, when in actually she had already been kidnapped by the corporation and tortured into submission, and set off the solar eclipse that would signal the real bomber to set off his bomb. She would then be subjected to more experimentation and torture until she was utterly broken and remolded into a pale shell only taught to kill. Her brother Quentin was ultimately forced to kill her when he realized that she was longer his sister and was going to kill the ones who were standing in the way of Kravid's plans.

* Series/TheLeagueOfGentlemen tended to do this to quite a few minor and major characters but did it much more to poor Mr. Chinnery the village vet. He is perhaps the most kindest, most well meaning character in the series, but, due to badly timed events, really bad luck and a unmentioned curse which plagues him so that he kills pretty much every animal he goes near. This includes an exploding tortoise, electrocuted fish and a dog which, due a flatulance problem, burns alive and explodes in his owners fireplace. These events slowly break Mr. Chinnery who is obviously just a well-meaning individual.

* ''{{Friends}}'': Phoebe, Chandler and Monica's backstorys all qualify as this, albeit PlayedForLaughs. They're all implied to have started out as normal, happy kids. As adults they're a CloudCuckooLander, SadClown and ControlFreak as a result of what they've gone through.

** As it's a usually optimistic show, much of the series is about reversing their backstorys and becoming happier in themselves. Phoebe by the beginning of the show is off the streets and eventually finds a nice, normal guy to settle down with. Chandler and Monica, although they have a [[{{LoveHurts}} tougher time]] in early seasons fall in love with each other, overcome their shared insecurities and start a family vastly different from the ones they grew up in.

* ''{{Eastenders}}'': Any number of characters, although Aidan Brosnan (promising young footballer to homeless drug addict) and Zoe Slater (statuesque beauty to murdering drug-addled prostitute) spring to mind. And we won't even mention what they did to poor bloody Joe Wicks.
