His father may include one as well, dealing with the racism, and his own shrew of mother.

* In ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', Eddy's characterization can be summed up as {{Jerkass}}. [[spoiler: That was because he was trying to emulate and impress his {{Domestic Abuse}}r older brother. His breakdown and admission to this led to the others accepting him.]]

* Then there's Eustace from ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog''. Where do we even begin with Eustace? Well, let's start off with his mother. It turns out that his mother is even worse than him and never liked him as a child. In addition, she favored his older brother Horst over Eustace, the former always rubbed his success in the latter's face, as well as giving him his nickname "Useless". Now we know how Eustace became the selfish {{Jerkass}} he is as an old man. While this doesn't in any way excuse his cruelty towards Courage, you can't help but feel just a little bit sorry for him for what he's been through in his childhood.

Because of this, she feared of making any other friends because another Cutie Mark or even another ''difference'' could cause it to be ruined.]]
