*** During the more [[FoeYay "serious"]] scenes between the Doctor and the Master, you can see the Master himself suffers this because of the drums. Suffers it horribly, in fact. Which means that ''everything the Master has ever done'' was the fault of [[spoiler: Rassilon and the Council]]; he started out as a completely normal child. Poor mad Master.

*** Then there's ''The End of Time.'' The Doctor is already tormented by the prophecy "[[ArcWords He will knock four times]]". But then the Master comes back, beats him to a fare-thee-well and then forces the Doctor to watch as everyone he knows and loves on Earth (with the exception of Wilf and Donna) is [[GrandTheftMe turned into The Master]] (it's never said, but a foregone conclusion that Sarah, Martha, Tegan, Barbara, Ian, Ace and so on were Mastericized by the incident). Then, the Time Lords return, threatening to [[ApocalypseHow destroy all of time]] so that they can [[AGodAmI gain apotheosis]] and finally gain a (pyrrhic) victory in the Time War. The Doctor has to send them -- all of them and most likely Romana, amongst others -- back to the Time War to be annihilated. And then, he gets to see just who the "he" was who would knock four times, heralding his death: [[spoiler:Wilf, who was trapped in a radiation-safety chamber that was about to fail.]] The Doctor has a HeroicBSOD of epic proportions before rescuing him, and is pretty much not the same for the last 20 minutes of screen time left in his life, nary cracking a joke or smiling, but instead paying last visits to old friends before regenerating in the most violent regeneration scene in the show's history.

* ''Series/TheHandmaidsTale'': On a ''systematic'' level. This happens to every single Handmaid, to varying extents. Life in Gilead could take the happiest, most well-adjusted woman alive and turn her into a half-crazed mess only focused on surviving. [[spoiler:And in the case of Janine and Emily, sometimes not even that.]]

** After their family is separated, the Stark children have had it rough. They begin as a good, innocent and loving family who grew up with a sheltered upbringing and had a good life but then, the family is separated and scattered. Their home is destroyed and eventually taken over by people who betrayed them, half their family is murdered, and the members who ''haven't'' been horrifically killed, have been traumatized beyond belief, with some turning darker and/or more jaded. The fact that most of the Starks who remain are still in their teens, with the oldest being barely in his twenties, makes this all so much worse.
