Added DiffLines:

* This trope is dealt with at least two times in ''Fanfic/ATriangleInTheStars''.
** Bill especially has it bad, [[spoiler: having slowly had his [[UsedToBeASweetKid empathy extinguished]] and [[DrivenToMadness sanity degraded]] by the abuse and mistreatment.]] It's no wonder he's a psychopathic, evil jerk. [[spoiler: Unlike most examples, he eventually realized that [[HeelRealization he was definitely in the wrong for every other thing he's done since then.]]]]
** [[spoiler: Gabriel, the story's first BigBad, had been tossed into the Void for more than a trillion years.]] Of course he'd be out for vicious revenge, [[spoiler: even though it was [[NeverMyFault mostly his fault]]]], and have lost more than a few marbles too.

* Discussed and defied in ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/7462512/chapters/16958475 Fighting for the Future]]''. Lex Luthor explains his desire to kill all Metahumans comes from the fact that one Metahuman, implied to be Black Siren, caused a train accident that killed his fiancee. No one is very impressed with this, having seen it before in both Malcolm Merlyn and Slade Wilson; and Oliver explicitly states that that would justify killing that ''one'' Metahuman, not all of them. He even points out that the love of ''his'' life was murdered, but he still only killed those responsible.

* Deconstructed in ''Fanfic/TheVerySecretDiary''. Ginny is able to deduce Riddle's [[ParentalAbandonment backstory]], but doesn't feel sorry for him at all. Pointing out that [[TheHero Harry]] lost his parents and was stuck with the Dursleys, but didn't turn bad.

bad, concluding that being an orphan is a shitty excuse for all he's done.

[[AC:''Franchise/{{Metal Gear}}'']]
* ''FanFic/{{Stray}}'' discusses this - it's set in the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' universe, land of villains with unhappy childhoods, and at least two characters (including one of the protagonists) are former {{Tykebomb}}s. However, Adamska (one of the tykebombs in question) eventually rejects the idea that a person's essential nature can be changed by the actions of other people.

[[AC: ''MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'']]
* In ''FanFic/BrideOfDiscord'', Discord reveals the reason he initially overthrew Celestia and turned Equestria into a WorldGoneMad, was because his misguided attempts at "helping" pony-kind, lead to Celestia, the only pony to give him a chance in his ''entire life'', getting angry with him. Being the LastOfHisKind and being [[AllTheOtherReindeer shunned and ridiculed]] by ponies prior, probably didn't help his emotional state.
** To a much lesser extent, Fluttershy reveals to him, part of the reason she has a hard time opening up to everypony and why she was very reluctant in trying to pursue a romantic relationship, is because as a filly, a colt told her she was beautiful and asked her out on a date, only to reveal it was cruel trick to mess with her.

[[AC:''[[WesternAnimation/TheLegendofKorra Legend of Korra]]'']]
* ''Fanfic/BookFiveLegends'' give us this for the villain's backstory. Unloved by virtually all except their mother, losing them devastated the villain to the point that they are trying to resurrect them Creator/MaryShelly style. And when that doesn't quite work out the way they hoped, they go full on ''burn it all down'' mode. To a lesser extend, the secondary antagonist has a similar excuse, having been shunned and abandoned by their real family and thus developing an unhealthy fixation on their [[spoiler:Big Bro Temuji]] as a result.

* The whole of Fanfic/CodeGeassMaoOfTheDeliverance could be seen as a version of this trope taken UpToEleven for Mao. Of course, it also shows FreudWasRight.

* Meimu Uchiha from [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8774090/1/Reincarnation-Roulette Reincarnation Roulette]] by Silver Queen has some great reasons for being the cold hearted villain she is. Namely, she's a self-insert born into the Uchiha clan, and was GenreSavvy enough to realize she'd have a miserable life if she became a ninja. Unfortunately, her [[AbusiveParents new parents]] won't take no for an answer, and proceed to literally beat ninja training into her. Her Jounin sensei ends up being ''Orochimaru'', forcing her to be on the lookout for having a Sharingan, lest she end up as one of his host bodies. She succeeds in hiding it by killing anyone who ever found out, but is forced to make herself useful to him in other ways. She gains a younger brother in the form of Obito, and wonders if she'll have it in her to murder him and avert the future. [[spoiler:She does, complete with Itachi's "foolish little brother" line.]] What makes her most disturbingly chilling is the fact that, as Silver Queen's self-insert, she used to be the same person as the protagonist of [[FanFic/DreamingOfSunshine her most famous fic]]. The contrast between [[ProtagonistJourneyToVillain Meimu]] [[InTheEndYouAreOnYourOwn Uchiha]] and [[TheHeart Shikako]] [[TeamMom Nara]] effectively makes the former the latter's MirrorUniverse EvilCounterpart.

* Parodied in [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5415242/1/Oh-Did-You-Have-a-Sob-Story-Too-Sasuke Oh, Did You Have a Sob Story Too, Sasuke?]]. Since every vilain (almost) have a FreudianExcuse in the manga, Naruto has trouble remembering them, or rather which is whose, leading him to [[CrowingMomentOfFunny list all of them to Sasuke until he get it right]].
