Then his brother contracted a demon, who killed him along with everyone else in the village.

* In FlameofRecca, Kurei hates Recca for just being born. Kurei was the Hokage heir, until his younger brother Recca was born. Two children of fire in the same generation is thought to be a bad omen, and Kurei was sentenced to death, and very nearly murdered for supposedly having an evil flame. [[spoiler: Very incorrect, as it turns out Kurei has the most sacred flame that can be produced. He was fully innocent. Recca was the cursed flame holder.]] He was however spared at the last moment. But, he and his mother were forced to live on the village outskirts where they were ostracized. Oh yeah, and Kurei lost his entire clan and mother in a war in a single night.

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Dr. Hell was a poor child that was physically and psychologically abused by his mother, who constantly declared he was an unwanted son and her life would be much better if he did not exist. When he attended school he was constantly belittled by professors accussed him of cheating and beaten by his schoolmates. When he was in college, he took pride on his grades... and then a foreign student (Juzo Kabuto, Kouji's Grandfather) surpassed him easily before wooing the woman he was in love with. After some incidents where he tried making some good action and he got beaten by it (such like saving the life of a little girl and being beaten by her father because the man believed he was molesting her), he fully snapped out, and he declared he was sick of it all, people were mediocre idiots did not deserve living and one day he would purge hit world off idiots, and everybody would kneel before him. And then Nazism happened and he... got tips about how achieving that.

** Kurosaki of ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' is violent, paranoid, and ruthless due to his past [[spoiler: as a genocide survivor]]. This is also invoked by [[spoiler: [[AcademyOfEvil Academia]]]], where students are forbidden from developing friendships and getting thrown into prison is one method of punishment in order to train them to be ruthless and bloodthirsty. Shinji's extremism is due to being looked down upon and tormented by Tops as a child.

** Also, in the 3rd OVA, [[ApocalypseMaiden Mayo Sakaki]]'s excuse is that her parents are in the midst of (or recently had) a messy divorce, where they were always fighting, and then got involved with other people and never seemed to have time for Mayo. [[note]] Also, keep in mind that divorce has a ''much'' greater social stigma in Japan, both on the divorced couple themselves, and on their children and families, than it does in the West. [[/note]] On top of that, she had unrequited feelings for her basketball coach. So, when given the opportunity to be considered important (the Priestess of Suzaku) and to get a fairy-tale ending with Tamahome as his wife and the mother of his child, she jumped at the chance [[spoiler: Especially when a demon posing as Suzaku told her that Tamahome was gathering the other Seishi to kill her via TraumaticCSection, but that this could be prevented, and Mayo would get the ending she wanted, if she would [[PrayerOfMalice pray for the destruction of Konan.]]]]

* In ''SaintSeiya'' some of the God Warriors from the Asgard saga had one in their respective backstories: For example, Alioth Epsilon Fenrir hates and mistrust humans [[spoiler: after his parents were killed by a bear, he was abandoned, being rescued by a pack of wolves]]. Also, there was Benethosh Eta Mime, who [[spoiler: had an abusive adoptive parent. Mime kills him after he told him that he was the murderer of his biological parents. However, it all turned out to be a ThanatosGambit from his adoptive father, who wanted to both atone for the ''accidental'' killing of Mime's family '''and''' die in battle instead of his long-time illness, so he put on a JerkassFacade for many years.]].

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' provides these in spades, as a result of the setting being something of a CrapsackWorld.
** While torturing Kaneki, Yamori takes the time to actually explain exactly how he ended up as a twisted sadist. He was once captured and sent to Cochlea, where he ended up becoming the victim of a deranged PsychoForHire. Eventually, the extensive torture drove him insane and he began to take on the personality and behaviors of his tormentor. One day, he managed to break free and [[TheDogBitesBack turned the tables]] on his torturer before escaping. Since then, he found pleasure in repeating the tortures he'd endured on others.
** Nishiki turns out to have been such a {{Jerkass}} when first introduced, because he learned early on that HumansAreBastards. After the death of his [[PromotionToParent sister]], he swore to never trust anyone again. [[LoveRedeems He gets better]].
** [[CainAndAbel Touka and Ayato]] are both fairly harsh individuals as a result of their traumatic childhood, having been orphaned at a young age. To make matters worse, after their father was caught and they were left alone in their apartment for several days, an elderly neighbor lured them out and turned them over to Investigators. The siblings escaped and spent the next few years living on the streets, fighting other Ghouls to survive. Touka eventually settled down, while Ayato comes to believe that people can only survive through becoming more powerful.
** [[BigBad The One-Eyed Owl]] has one, naturally. [[spoiler: A natural HalfHumanHybrid born to StarCrossedLovers, the shadowy organization her father served forced him to kill her mother as punishment for betraying them. In order to protect her, [[BigGood Yoshimura]] abandoned his daughter in the [[WretchedHive 24th Ward]] with nothing but her mother's diary to explain everything and disappeared from her life. She grew up as an outcast among outcasts, fighting constantly for survival and [[CannibalismSuperpower cannibalizing]] to survive until she became a Kakuja. This horrific childhood made her come to hate the world, consumed by despair and resentment]].
