* ''Anime/PerfectBlue'': [[spoiler: Rumi]]. She ends up delusional and tries to kill Mima. Me-Mania too. Yes, he was a serial killer and attempted rapist... But that's because he was a deformed, barely-functioning schizophrenic who lived only for his perfect image of Mima. The scene where we see his apartment is an enormous StalkerShrine and that all he wants in life is "the real Mima's" affection was genuinely sad.

** [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Depending on your interpretation]] of him and his FreudianExcuse, Lord Shen of the [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 second movie]]. Considered too weak and sickly to warrant his parents' attention, Shen was left to the care of the Soothsayer. He strove to earn his parents' approval and ended up discovering the explosive potential behind fireworks. When the Soothsayer foretold his defeat at the hands of a warrior of black and white if he continued down his dark path, Shen slayed the pandas, believing averting his fate would finally earn his parents affection. They instead banished him and Shen saw this as the final sign that his parents did not and would never love him. He spends the rest of the movie killing and destroying out of a desperate need to fill the void in his life, knowing full well there is nothing he can do to make himself happy but also knowing there is nothing he can do to justify his actions.

* [[spoiler: Prince Hans]] from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. [[spoiler: WordOfGod is his comments to Anna regarding his brothers treatment of him was technically true, but the book ''A Frozen Heart'' (which is technically canon in BroadStrokes) shows it was much worse. His father is an unfeeling tyrant who regards his youngest son as a throwaway and encourages his other sons to bully and humiliate him his entire life, leaving Hans to SelfHarm to deal with his emotional stress and implying he has clinical depression. His mother does love him, but she is an ExtremeDoormat for her husband, unable to help Hans. His trip to Arendelle wasn't even his idea, his brother Lars, the only one who was kind to him, suggested he become Elsa's suitor so that he can never return to the Southern Isles. However, his otherwise good intentions melted away when his desperation to never go home, desire to become a king and [[WellDoneSonGuy prove his worth to his family]] cause him to become more and more of TheSociopath and nearly kill Elsa. When we see him in ''Disney/FrozenFever'', he's still in his princely clothes, no longer as clean and elegant as it used to be, implying he has nothing else to wear as he shovels manure in the stables. Should he never return, he will never be able to redeem himself or leave the Hell he was desperate to escape.]]

* The eponymous character of ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}''. On one hand, he's an IneffectualSympatheticVillain who regularly kidnaps Roxanne, threatens citizens with bodily harm and always tries to kill his nemesis, Metro Man. On the other hand, he lost his entire civilization to a black hole, he grew up in prison because the inmates took advantage of his genius and naivete, and was [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer ostracized in school by the kids]] because. unlike Metro Man, he looks different.

* The hyenas from ''Disney/TheLionKing''. Their hatred for the lions isn't such a surprise given how they were segregated by Mufasa and forced to live in a barren wasteland with barely any food. They support the main antagonist, Scar, who promises a better life for them (and also revenge against the ruling family who've caused them so much suffering). It's only later that they learn Scar is utterly inept as a ruler and is willing to sell them all out to save his own skin.

* Funnybunny from [[ DotAndTheKangaroo Dot And The Bunny]] is a mild example. He spends most of the movie trying to convince Dot that he's a joey and in general acts like an irritable and eccentric brat but at the climax of the movie [[spoiler: he breaks down in tears and tells Dot that he was orphaned by hunters and is only pretending to be a joey to find a new mother.]] Also, keep in mind that rabbits are invasive species to Australia which may or may not push him into JerkAss territory.

** The prologue comic gives a lot more insight into his character. [[spoiler: We learn that his sister, his brother-in-law, and their ENTIRE village perished in a Viking attack 10 years before the film, and the Abbot just barely managed to save his baby nephew Brendan. After going through that, it makes sense that he would dedicate his life to ensuring Kells would be protected from such an attack... and it becomes even more tragic that his efforts backfire.]]
