* ''VideoGame/SilentHill'': Alessa was already broken before the events of the series as a result of her childhood growing up in a psychotic murder cult, but [[spoiler: setting her on fire and keeping her alive for seven years didn't do wonders for her psyche]]. 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 ''SilentHill3'']].

** 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 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.]]

** ''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 an 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.]] 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 ''Heirs of Fate'' DLC stages are pretty much ''built'' around this trope: [[spoiler: Alternate version of the Second Generation children have been forcibly torn away from their once-safe Deep Realms, and their parents (specially their dads) have all died or disappeared to save them ''plus'' the Deeprealms themselves AND their original worlds have been destroyed. Then the BigBad [[DeadlyGame pits groups of surviving children against each other]], [[EvilIsPetty purely for his own amusement]]. The bulk of the story here is to have one of the eldest kids become the BigGood and reunite the others, [[TheDogBitesBack to retaliate]] and find a way to fix this mess.]]

* Yandere-chan/Ayano from ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' can kidnap classmates and torture them until she can program them to serve her, mainly to kill a rival. Once they complete their task, they will turn their weapon against [[DrivenToSuicide themselves]], which gets rid of two people for Yandere-chan.

** Since Senpai has become the object of Yandere-chan's affections, he/she will eventually undergo this. If the rivals are handled a certain way, it will affect his/her mental state. This also includes how Osana and his/her little sister are eliminated as rivals. The worst thing that can happen is Senpai suffering from severe mental illness such as PTSD.
** This has already happened to [[spoiler:Mr. Aishi. He was the reason why Ryoba went around killing people (no number is specified other than one confirmed death), was kidnapped, was implied to have been sexually assaulted by his captor and eventually developed StockholmSyndrome. When you play one of the later Basement Tapes, you can hear the empty tone in his voice, signifying that he has been broken by his wife.]]

* Asahi from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' goes through so much ''shit'' that it's a wonder the girl doesn't flat out refuse to be a Hunter anymore. First, [[spoiler:she watches her superiors Nanabu and Nikkari being roasted alive by Adrammelech and also her childhood friend Nanashi]] (who luckily survives and CameBackStrong from the dead), later on, [[spoiler:the truth about Nanashi not being human anymore reduces her to tears]], but she's able to get it together thanks to Nozomi. And just when you think the girl is okay, in comes [[spoiler:the death of her father who died protecting her from Quetzalcoatl at the bar]], which puts her into a HeroicBSOD that she doesn't participate in story battles for a while. Eventually, she comes back with renewed interest...[[spoiler:then the ''dies'' protecting Nanashi from a secondly resurrected Shesha]]. The game really drives it home shit constantly hits the fan.

** Don't forget about Zack to. Sure he was already a SOLDIER that fought and killed, but he was still and adorkable one that would help other lower ranked SOLDIERS and unimportant Shinra staff. In fact getting recommended for first class rank was enough to make him act sort-of-childish. Then the mission to Wutai happens where Angeal disappears, then he has to see that same person, who he idolized, kill his own mother, then he has to see Angeal's hometown get blown up. Then comes the part where [[spoiler: He has to kill him]] making the tough SOLDIER, who was promoted to first rank at that point cry. It's sort of heart-breaking to see the normally cheery person turn into a strict role model in the scene that follows.

* "VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys": The Phone Guy sounds so adorable and happy when he's talking about his admiration for the animatronics. He honestly just wants Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria to be a fun place for everyone. [[spoiler: Some time later, he witnesses the [[NoodleIncident Bite of '87]], the murder of five children (or is framed for the murder), and the scrapping of his beloved characters. Not only that, but he ends up getting killed by the animatronics. Although there is some speculation that he might actually be the murderer...]]
