** AbusiveParents: His father was horribly physically and emotionally abusive to him.
*** AlcoholicParent: Unlike Eli, [[TheUnfavorite only Nucky]] suffered his wrath.
** DeadLittleSister: A literal one, Susan, died of tuberculosis when he was 12. 30 years later, she was followed by Nucky's wife and only biological child.
** TheLostLenore: His first wife, Mabel. She killed herself after the death of their [[IllBoy first child.]] And while he gets over Billie's death pretty quickly, he still feels the need to avenge her by killing her murderers.
*** OfCorpseHeIsAlive: Nucky found her caring for their child days after he had died, unable to accept it. That was [[WhenYouComingHomeDad the only time]] [[MyGreatestFailure he held him.]]
** RagsToRiches: From beggar child to one of the richest and most powerful men in the country.
** StartOfDarkness: Told in {{flashback}}s during the 5th season. In 1884, when Nucky was 12, he beat a disrespectful kid that earned more money than he did working honestly. This attracted the attention of [[EvilMentor the Commodore]], who gave him a job as a hotel bellboy. There, he saw a client murder a prostitute, but instead of bringing him to justice the Commodore and his sheriff "[[NoodleIncident solved the issue]]" in secret, so the incident wouldn't harm early Atlantic City's appeal as a tourist destination.
** TheUnfavorite: His father constantly expresses scorn toward him, yet secretly feels that he's the only son who can handle himself.

Not only is he repeatedly blown off by Mickey, the drivers of their shipment of alcohol outright ignore him on the side of the road yelling to them that it's a trap and drive in to their doom.
