* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'': Oh, Otacon. Otacon, Otacon, Otacon. He's an {{Adorkable}} nerd-boy who loves all things nerdy and Japanese, is enthusiastic about his work, and genuinely believes in people. [[spoiler: Also, he's a statutory rape victim, his father committed suicide, he's inadvertently responsible for the creation of one of the deadliest weapons mankind has ever known, his crush was shot, his long-lost sister was killed, his ''other'' crush was killed, and his HeterosexualLifePartner/[[HoYay possible lover]], the ''only person who's ever stuck by him,'' is doomed to die of old age at forty-five.]] This series might as well be called ''Metal Gear Horrible Things Happen to Hal Emmerich.'' It's to the point where the ten years of happiness he gets [[spoiler: with Snake]] between ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'' and ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'' feels almost like a slap in the face--"We're giving you a break from your horrible life. Enjoy it while it lasts, 'cause it's not going to last long!"

* Penny, from ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars: Days of Ruin''. At first, she looks like some sort of insane child in command of an army. [[spoiler:Her insanity actually comes from the fact that her father kept experimenting on her brain, leaving a lot of damage. And she's aware of how ravaged her mind is, without even being able to reasoning beyond it.]]
** She sure looks like a cute 6-years old child in-game, right ? Until you see her full art and realize [[spoiler:she's a grown-up teenager.]]

*** It is implied at several points that Imoen's continued cheer is partly an act meant to cheer the PC (who arguably suffered less than she did) up. Which just emphasizes how absurdly nice Imoen is - it is noted at one point that not even having a fragment of the [[spoiler:God of Murder]] in her could stop her from being a nice person. Essentially, the plot tries very hard to break Imoen, but never fully succeeds - even though she is badly traumatized (which she only admits in a few, often hard to trigger dialogues), her desire to help others and cheer people up never wavers.

** ... And finally... the [[spoiler: fake]] ghost of Almarde shows up herself, saying terrible things to him. Then she teams up with the former commander, his brother and sister, and tell Lyude that he is a coward and has no right to love or be loved by anyone. Poor kid breaks down and actually cries, asking through tears what he should do. The [[spoiler: fake]] Almarde ghost nearly pulls Lyude into the dark side...until [[spoiler: the ghost of the real Almarde shows up, saving Lyude from any more break-ness just in the nick of time.]] Cue a huge monster showing up, a monster that is a manifestation of Lyude's self-doubt, self-hate, low-confidence, and broken status.

* Isaac Clarke, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/DeadSpace''. Granted, he is not a cute anime girl with big eyes and bright hair, but still, he is your average 40 years old guy trying to earn his salary and get some news about her former girlfriend on a supposedly routine repair job, [[spoiler: and he gets stuck facing off against horribly mutated undead creatures, some of whom ''he knew'', the people who try to help him stop the necromorphs being brutally murdered, he gets betrayed by one of his own teammates and at the end it's revealed his girlfriend ''killed herself before he arrived'' and he's been driven insane by a fake ArtifactOfDoom. When he finally gets a break from all the massacres and bloodshed, he seems to be coming to terms with the loss of his girlfriend... then he is apparently attacked by her. Luckily for him, according to the creators of the game, he is still alive.]]

** Shuu, [[spoiler: a ExtremeDoormat since childhood, one day befriended a human boy named Edgar. Both became best friends, but Reiji, who disapproved of his brother being friends with an human, burned the whole village Edgar lived in, leaving Shuu traumatized and feeling useless upon not doing anything to save Edgar. The nail in the coffin was Reiji twisting his mind by constantly telling him that because of his failure, he is not apt to be the family head.]]

* Reversed (not averted) with Leliana from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. Introduced as a chirrupy religious type who's a wee bit bonkers but handy with a blade - then if you speak to her enough to raise her approval she eventually reveals that [[spoiler: her former mentor sold her out to save her own skin to the Orlesian guards, who tortured her mercilessly and she resigned to dying a traitor's death. Considering some of the implements seen in the Arl of Denerim's dungeons during Rescue the Queen, it's safe to assume that the execution would have been pretty agonizing as well.]] In the DLC ([[UnreliableNarrator only-just-canon]]), this breaks Leliana so thoroughly that she can barely summon the will to escape her cell, even [[spoiler: with a little help. It doesn't stop her going on a homicidal rampage after Raleigh though.]] By the time you reach her in ''DA:O'', she's had two years to start pulling her life together; and that hasn't healed everything.

*** There's also a good chance (and outright implication) that she was [[RapeIsASpecialKindofEvil gangraped]] as part of the torture she went through. Break the cutie indeed....
** There's also Alistair, an insufferably wise-cracking smartass who, overall, is a pretty decent and purehearted guy. At some point he learned that he has an older sister and asks the Warden if they can visit her. [[spoiler:It does not go well. And nothing you say to him eases the pain of rejection he feels. You can use the opportunity to harden his naive idealism into a more realistic view, for some changes to the ending pertaining to him.]]
*** Not to mention that this happens soon after the poor guy has lost his father figure (who rescued him from life as a templar after he was sent away thanks to the jealous wife of his ''other'' father figure.) It's obvious that he's quite broken up about it, but tries to keep the grief to himself and apologizes for letting it get to him. Later in the game, if you [[spoiler:allow the man whose betrayal caused these deaths to join your party,]] Alistair does not take it well at all, and depending on your previous choices may end up [[spoiler:as a sad, wandering drunk.]]

* The [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Final Fantasy VII Compilation]] seems to be one long telling of how they broke the character Cloud, glued him back wrong, broke him again, then fixed him for real. [[TheWoobie Sort of]]. Specifically, [[spoiler:this included being blamed for an accident that injured his childhood crush Tifa, which results in him being forbidden from seeing her, failing at the only dream he ever had (joining SOLDIER), watching his mother die (oh, and knowing she was killed by his idol, aka Sephiroth), watching his other idol - Zack - get shanked by Seph, getting shanked himself, being experimented on for four years straight, and all of this culminates with watching his beloved Zack get gunned down after being dragged across the country by him for a year because the experimentation had left him nearly comatose. [[FromBadToWorse Then it gets worse]]. Unable to cope with all that has happened in the past years, he recreates his memories so Zack never existed (well, he thinks he's Zack, but same thing). And then ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' happens (in which we see him actually break and go comatose again). After the game Cloud settles down with Tifa, only to contract the incurable disease Geo-Stigma, which leads you down a slow and painful death.]] Towards the end of ''[[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]]'' his troubles are finally solved, however.

** Vanille was a genuine [[TheCutie cutie]] pre-game before she became a l'Cie. The trauma she experienced thereafter ([[spoiler:guilt over forcing Fang to become Ragnarok alone, becoming a [[HumanPopsicle crystal statue]] and then [[FishOutOfWater waking up on Cocoon]]]]) [[StepfordSmiler ended that]]. Everything she's done since the start of the 13 days ([[spoiler:i.e. guilt over Serah and Dajh, the Purge, Hope's mother - which all wouldn't have happened if she didn't lie to Fang]]) has only added to the stress of maintaining the mask, making her a rather extreme example of this. She gets better.

* Gwen from ''VideoGame/GuildWars'', you first meet her at the beginning of the first campaign ''Prophecies'' as a cute, cheerful and lovely little girl, soon after her (and yours too) [[DoomedHometown hometown is destroyed]] by the Charr and Gwen's fate is unknown, until years pass and you meet her again as a young woman in the expansion pack ''Eye of the North'', it is revealed that she was brutally tortured and enslaved by the Charr and she bitterly harbors hate and desire of revenge against them.

Then the man turned and spoke to her. And ''then'' [[spoiler: she blacked out... and woke up ''splattered with the blood of her parents and everyone in her village''. '''And she was the one who killed them''', under Goenitz's MoreThanMindControl]]. She completely shuts down from then on, and while she somewhat recovers after [[spoiler: being taken in by Heidern and trained as a ChildSoldier]], it takes her years to even ''start'' smiling again...

** And yet, despite all of this, Mission is still one of the most pure hearted characters in the game, as is obvious in the scenes where [[spoiler:the player reveals that they are Revan]] and her attempt to bring you back to the Light if you go Dark near the end. She gets broken, but inevitably bounces back to her feet. Unless you ''do'' go Dark Side, in which case [[spoiler:the only option is to [[KillTheCutie kill her]]]].

** Speaking of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'', this is revealed to be in the backstories of all the Beauty and the Beast unit girls after they are defeated. [[spoiler:One girl was forced to kill off her neighbors and family while laughing. One accidentally smothered her own brother to keep him from crying after escaping a raid, and then killed a refugee camp's worth of kids [[MindScrew while hallucinating that a wolf did it]]. One found herself among kids that were kidnapped, abused, then abandoned to be eaten by ravens, [[BecauseDestinySaysSo was lucky enough that the ravens accidentally broke her ropes before they pecked her to death]], and [[UnstoppableRage hunted down the soldiers responsible, innocents be damned]]. And the leader was the only one who didn't kill anybody before being turned into her B&B self, but it's not like she got off any better. She was forced to run for her life after her village got burned to the ground, eventually got herself locked in a torture chamber, and only survived through the horrible conditions and the screams of villagers by drinking dirty water and hallucinating about a mantis teaching her to block out sound and feed on the corpses in the chamber for ''ten days'' (the mantis is implied to be Psycho Mantis (who broke a long time ago) during one of his missions in Africa, sometime during the events of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' - after all, HE becomes her spirit mentor / slave master in [=MGS4=]). Combine all that with their [[MsFanservice gratuitous good looks]], it's enough to make someone side with Liquid Ocelot's "get revenge on the world that did this by blowing 'civilization' to hell" plan.]]

** [[spoiler: After the three year time skip, things don't improve for the poor kid. If anything, it gets worse. His father still goes out searching, the beloved [[DoomedHometown village]] slowly changes from a into a more modern town before being abandoned completely, it is revealed that everything he knows has been a elaborate lie to prevent another Armageddon, and that game's final BigBad?

** [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Gloria]] [[spoiler: developed an abandonment complex after her mother sent her to a BoardingSchoolOfHorrors to turn her into a star - said mother's BastardBoyfriend had promised to deliver letters between the two of them. [[BlatantLies Guess how that turned out]]. She could have gotten past that, since she did grow into a famous actress, but her mother became depressed, implied largely from their estrangement, and killed herself, causing Gloria to snap and sending her to the asylum for severe bipolar disorder]].

Lisa Garland is also revealed to have gone dramatically downhill during the course of the series, from her cheerful personality and kind-hearted nature revealed in ''0rigins'' to her [[spoiler: nightmarish existence as a soul tortured by Valtiel in ''VideoGame/SilentHill3'']].

*** This could be the reason Henry Townsend is so unemotional in ''Silent Hill 4''. The guy was trapped in a tiny - and drab at best - apartment for at least a week before the game starts when chains appeared on the ''inside'' of his door, he has horrific nightmares about being killed by a ghost and words written in blood keep appearing everywhere. That's not even getting into what happens in the actual game. Poor guy must be traumatized.

** ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'': Pilika. ''Dear God'', poor Pilika. She is only a five years old little bubbly girl, and is a gut-wrenching example of how war can destroy a young life. First, her hometown, Toto, is destroyed and her parents are killed, making her one of the few survivors. Jowy, who was previously saved by her and who deeply cares about her, decided then to take her under his wing and to become her uncle. Alas, the protagonists are attacked by Luca Blight's army at Viktor's fort, and his mercenaries are overwhelmed, prompting Luca to invade the fort himself, where he stumbles upon a very frightened Pilika. He then proceeds to effortlessly kill Polk, a young mercenary, in front of her. Riou and Jowy try to stop him, but are easily beaten by Luca, who is about ''to gleefully cut Pilika in half'', while a panicked Jowy is shouting desperatly at him to stop. They are only saved by the timely and rather rash actions of Viktor who more or less blow up the fort. Following these events, Pilika's portrait is altered for the rest of the game, replacing her previous happy expression by a deeply sorrowful one, and the events traumatized her so much that she became mute. She is then forced to flee to Muse along Riou, Jowy and Nanami, but Muse itself became the target of Luca's armies, and, worse, [[spoiler:Jowy decided to turn traitor by killing himself the mayor of Muse, Anabelle, and opening the gate for the enemies, in order to get close to Luca and eventually usurp him as King of Highland]]. Pilika is then left alone with Riou and Nanami, away from her new parental figure. She briefly meets him again at Greenhill, but they are separated. It is not until the [[spoiler:death of Luca Blight]] that she is able to reunite with Jowy, during a peace treaty conference... [[spoiler:In which Jowy was about to kill Riou and Teresa in order to force the states of Dunan to surrender. In fact, the only reason his attempt failed was because Shu, Flik and Viktor correctly guessed what was going to happen, and organized a rescue party. Pilika was brought along only to serve as a human shield and emotional bargain against Jowy, who could not bring himself to kill his former best friends in front of her]]. At that point, after months of war and deep silence, she recovers her voice. However... [[spoiler:She is once again separated from Jowy following the fall of L'Renouille, and sent to Harmonia along with Julia under new identities in order to begin a new life. It is not revealed if she meet him again in the future, and if she managed to really recover from the events of her traumatising childhood]].

At that point, after months of war and deep silence, she recovers her voice. However... [[spoiler:She is once again separated from Jowy following the fall of L'Renouille, and sent to Harmonia along with Julia under new identities in order to begin a new life. It is not revealed if she meet him again in the future, and if she managed to really recover from the events of her traumatising childhood]].



* ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'' has pretty much every character get broken at some point in the game. [[spoiler: Sans Grune]]. Most of this was done in the past, but the character quests quest shows Moses having to say goodbye to his lovely pet Giet, Will's DeathByOriginStory wife and his attempts to bond with his daughter, Chloe [[DidNotGetTheGirl Did Not Get the Boy]]... and that's just the second half. The first half details Shirley getting the worst of it. [[spoiler: An IllGirl who is constantly kidnapped and has to be TheMessiah for Nerifes - something she does not want nor is ready for. She watches her biological sister die right in front of her (herself having been broken way before.) and then is forced to watch Fenimore take the sword for her, and Fenimore's identical twin blames ''her'' for it. She was pretty much pushed beyond the DespairEventHorizon when Nerifes started controlling her, but is snapped out by Senel in the end.]] Someone really ''really'' hated Shirley.

* Elly, of ''VideoGame/XenoGears'' fame, just can't get a break in the last hours of the first disc. On top of her [[spoiler: parents getting killed, shortly followed by her entire civilization getting torn apart until there's ''nothing left,'' she then finds out that her boyfriend, Fei, has a SplitPersonality that manifests itself as a destructive madman- the same destructive madman, moreover, that just destroyed her civilization ''single-handedly,'' and has been known to destroy entire continents because he was bored.]] Yeah, something tells us that Elly won't be remembering that day very fondly....

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' is about a WarriorPrince or BadassPrincess having to choose between [[ChildOfTwoWorlds one Royal Family or another]], and the family that isn't chosen will be ''completely'' shattered through the war. If the PlayerCharacter chooses Nohr, then [[spoiler: his/her eldest Hoshidan brother will have to commit a HeroicSuicide to save him/her; the youngest Hoshidan brother will lose himself to ThePowerOfHate, end up subjected to DemonicPossession, and become the path's FinalBoss; the two sisters will survive, but not before they witness the horrible war and become sad and depressed, though they eventually get better]]. If the player chooses Hoshido, then [[spoiler: the eldest Nohrian sister will cross the DespairEventHorizon and go {{Yandere}} until she's defeated and ultimately survives, the youngest Nohrian sister will die TakingTheBullet for the PC to protect him/her from their eldest Nohrian brother, said eldest Nohrian brother will ''also'' go through the DespairEventHorizon and then let himself get killed, and the youngest Nohrian brother will live through [[CharacterDevelopment and become stronger as a result]], but not before also fighting the armies and almost dying. (Plus, the sister of one of the PlayerCharacter's retainers will be forced to fight the group and later will commit suicide.)]] Basically, '''no matter what path the player chooses, someone will be broken'''. [[spoiler: The closest to an exception is the GoldenPath, but even '''then''' a CoolBigSis figure will be murdered by one of the Avatar's closest persons (under DemonicPossession, to be fair) and the reunited armies will have to fight their ways through some people ''very'' dear to them,. who have [[CameBackWrong been forcibly revived by the]] BigBad.]]

* The ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' games are full, full of this trope:
** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblem Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' has Tailtiu, a young thunder mage originally portrayed as a {{Tsundere}}-ish [[GenkiGirl genki]] RebelliousPrincess. But things start to go downhill for her when [[spoiler:her leader, Sigurd, is killed. She survives the battle only to be separated from her husband (who may be either dead or alive, depending on who she married), and although she once managed to flee to Silesia with her kids Arthur and Teeny, she gets taken back to her destroyed homeland, is separated from her son by force, and she has to withstand mental and physical abuse from [[EvilMatriarch her power-hungry bitch of a sister-in-law Hilda]], with her king and older brother Blume not interfering with the abuse since Tailtiu is seen as a traitor by her people, all while protecting her daughter from said abuses ''by taking them on herself''. Eventually, the poor girl cannot become a genki mother as she was before, cries every day, and eventually dies in sorrow after getting sick.]]
** Averted with CheerfulChild Nino from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]''. Having a [[EvilMatriarch manipulative, evil woman]] like Sonia as a mother would be enough to drive a little girl over the edge, but things find a way to go downhill from there. [[spoiler:First, her mother orders her killed in order to make a scapegoat for an assassination plot. After a narrow save by her best friend (and possible love interest through supports), she later confronts Sonia, only to learn that Sonia actually ''murdered her birth family'' when she was a baby, and would have killed her as well if it wasn't for orders from the BigBad. Then, she has to witness the murder of one of her adopted brothers, one which she tried her best to prevent. After watching the Black Fang fall apart, if you keep her around for the final boss, she has to fight ''the animated corpses'' of said adopted family: not only her brothers, but her ''father'' as well.]] Yet in spite of it all, [[PluckyGirl Nino presses on and, despite having her small breakdowns, never fully gives into despair]].

** Speaking of ''[=MGS4=]'', this is revealed to be in the backstories of all the Beauty and the Beast unit girls after they are defeated. [[spoiler:One girl was forced to kill off her neighbors and family while laughing. One accidentally smothered her own brother to keep him from crying after escaping a raid, and then killed a refugee camp's worth of kids [[MindScrew while hallucinating that a wolf did it]]. One found herself among kids that were kidnapped, abused, then abandoned to be eaten by ravens, [[BecauseDestinySaysSo was lucky enough that the ravens accidentally broke her ropes before they pecked her to death]], and [[UnstoppableRage hunted down the soldiers responsible, innocents be damned]]. And the leader was the only one who didn't kill anybody before being turned into her B&B self, but it's not like she got off any better. She was forced to run for her life after her village got burned to the ground, eventually got herself locked in a torture chamber, and only survived through the horrible conditions and the screams of villagers by drinking dirty water and hallucinating about a mantis teaching her to block out sound and feed on the corpses in the chamber for ''ten days'' (the mantis is implied to be Psycho Mantis (who broke a long time ago) during one of his missions in Africa, sometime during the events of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' - after all, HE becomes her spirit mentor / slave master in [=MGS4=]). Combine all that with their [[MsFanservice gratuitous good looks]], it's enough to make someone side with Liquid Ocelot's "get revenge on the world that did this by blowing 'civilization' to hell" plan.]]

** Xion herself counts as well. She's [[spoiler:an artificial construct made of Sora's memories, an unnatural existence ''even'' by nobody's standards]], was never seen as true member of Organisation XIII, and most notably, [[spoiler:her original purpose is to sap energy from Roxas, meaning only her or her best friend can live]].
