** Sansa starts out blindly loyal to her fiance, but having her daddy's head chopped off cures her of 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.

** Castiel. Oh, how cute, a good little soldier angel that loves his daddy (God), gets nervous around whores, thinks humans are God's works of art, and he just made some new friends (Sam & Dean)! Here's what we'll do: Have his brother murder and corrupt his garrison, then turn on him too; rip him out of his vessel so he can be ''taught a lesson'' (No, you may ''not'' be friends with Dean!); force him to choose between Heaven and mankind; have his brother smite him to death; resurrect him with most of his powers gone (not particularly helpful in the middle of the apocalypse); then he spends nearly a season searching for God (for help, for guidance), only to find out that his daddy doesn't care about him and won't help. [[spoiler:Cue Cas drinking an entire liquor store...understandably]]; then we have Dean surrender to the angels, essentially throwing all of Castiel's efforts and friendship back in his face. [[spoiler:Cue Cas beating the living crap out of Dean in a back alley...again, understandably]].

[[spoiler:Cue Cas beating the living crap out of Dean in a back alley...again, understandably]]. Castiel goes on to consume all of the souls in purgatory possess him and do horrible things that will haunt him forever after. Then he absorbs Sam's hell trauma and goes catatonic for a while, only to wake up insane. Then he gets sent and hunted in purgatory (with Dean) and refuses to leave because he thinks he deserves to rot in there. Instead, he gets "rescued" by another angel who then mind rapes him and tries to make him kill his best friend. Oh, then he is tricked by another fellow angel who removes his grace and turns him human. He's alone, homeless and uncertain how to live as a human, gets killed (he gets better), only to have his friends evict him from their home without giving him a reason. He's then tortured, becomes an angel again but is slowly wasting away. His friend turns into a demon, he nearly dies from his grace issues solves but his friend beats the crap out of him. Later, when a witch casts a horrific spell that makes him go into killing rages and is killing him he asks his angelic brethren for help, only to have them brutally torture him. He suffers symptoms of PTSD and depression and is later possessed by Lucifer.

* ''Series/AmericanGothic'': A lot of the show seems devoted to doing this to poor [[FishOutofWater Dr. Crower]], especially the episodes dealing with his alcoholism and the one where he attempts to kill Buck after learning from a woman who claims to be the sheriff's mother that [[CaptainObvious Buck is the Devil Incarnate]]. ([[EvilPlan This is later revealed to be all part of Buck's dastardly plot to discredit him]].) The fact Dr. Matt is eventually PutOnABus, is found to have a creepy stalker shrine to Buck, and is last seen [[spoiler: locked up in an insane asylum]] clinches his status as broken.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'' did this with a lot of its characters but particularly Daniel Jackson and Colonel Sam Carter. However it resulted in them becoming Cool {{Badass}}es.

* 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.
