** May or may not be an example StableTimeLoop. Timmy went back in time to prevent it, but ended up causing it anyway (the original circumstances were hinted to be Cosmo's stupidity.) However, Crocker ended up gaining his obsessions with fairies and a working scanner with fairy DNA (which he lacked in the present timeline, meaning that the past was changed, albeit only the circumstances, with the outcome being the same.))

** Remy Buxaplenty is a LonelyRichKid in the extreme: his parents are so money-obsessed that they spend only two minutes a day with him and can't even remember his name. His stunts during his first appearance are partly for attention, and partly out of hatred of Timmy, stemming from the fact that Timmy has regular parents ''and'' godparents that both care about him.
** Parodied with Vicky in one episode where she and Timmy end up trapped together in an icy mountain cave: the predicament causes her to have a VillainousBreakdown followed by a temporary HeelFaceTurn, during which there's a brief scene of her lying on a psychiatrist's couch, explaining her life story to Timmy (who, for bonus points, is actually dressed as Sigmund Freud).
--->'''Vicky:''' --then, when I was eight, my parents said my turtle ran away... but he didn't run away. [''cue OcularGushers''] TURTLES CAN'T RUN!!
*** Interestingly, Vicky may actually have a ''legitimate'' FreudianExcuse: the episode that shows Crocker's backstory also reveals he was tormented by a babysitter named Vic, who is heavily implied to be Vicky's father. If he treated Vicky half as bad as he treated Crocker, then it's no wonder she turned out the way she did.



* [[WesternAnimation/HeyArnold Ms. Helga G. Pataki]], ooh boy. Ever since she was a little girl, she has always lived in her older sister's shadow and hardly got any attention from her parents. One day, because her parents were too busy listening to Olga play the piano, she walked herself to and from preschool, had her lunchbox stolen by a dog and fell in a mud puddle. The only one nice to her on that day? [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe Arnold who complimented her bow and held out his umbrella for her]]. The next day, after Harold stole her crackers, he gave her his. Then all the kids started laughing at her when she fawned over him. Then she snapped and became the brash person she was in the present. She had a whole episode dedicated to explaining her character, which was generous of the writers to do.

* Taken UpToEleven in an episode of WesternAnimation/{{Stripperella}} with the villain Dr. Cesarian who was targeting supermodels.
-->'''Stripperella:''' Why do you hate models so much?

I had a scholarship to go to modeling college and everything, but then I became horribly disfigured in a modeling accident and they said I would never model again and I vowed to make them all pay!

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollhunters}}'' episode "[[Recap/TrollhuntersS1E19Airheads Airheads]]", during the Touch-A-Truck-athon, in an effort to cause Jim to lower his guard, Steve gives one about himself to Jim. It works, and though Steve taunts Jim over "falling" for it, the show actually paints everything he said to be pretty accurate.

** Played straighter with Peter, that not only that his mother is negligent but his adoptive father was abusive towards him. His sister Karen always abuse and picked on him really bad to the point that years later Peter take his pain out on his only daughter Meg. The worst thing is that Peter's parents didn't do anything to stop Karen from picking on him.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': [[AlphaBitch Pacifica Northwest]] was portrayed as a FlatCharacter, but it turns out she was raised by neglectful stage parents who never even taught her the idea of sharing. [[spoiler: Their treatment of Pacifica behind closed doors goes to outright mental abuse, as they've conditioned her to obey whenever they ring a bell]].
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Amethyst [[StepfordSmiler typically acts mischievous and rambunctious]] to relieve herself of the fact that she is the product of Ancient Space Nazis, and her troubled past including [[A FriendlessBackground in the Kindergarten, and watching her mother figure die before her very eyes]].

** Dan Phantom or Dark Danny, the evil future version of the show's protagonist, is an example of this as well. All of his loved ones (his mom and dad, Jazz, Tucker, and Sam) along with Mr. Lancer were killed in an explosion at the Nasty Burger. Grief stricken, Danny moves in with Vlad, who sympathizes with him. Eventually, Danny can't take the pain anymore, and wants his human emotions removed. Vlad does so, separating Danny's human half and ghost half. Unfortunately, Danny's ghost half decides to separate Vlad's two halves, then fused with it. The combination became Dan, and he would go on a rampage, starting by killing his former human half.
