* 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.]]

* Abbot Cellach from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfKells''. He spends most of the movie as a control freak obsessed with building a wall to keep out the Vikings, to the point that he seems to care about nothing else and alienates most of the other characters. [[spoiler: Then the Vikings attack, and he witnesses the deaths of nearly everyone in the village. Worst of all, he's lead to believe he's responsible for the death of his young nephew (and only remaining relative).]] [[spoiler: After this point, [[DespairEventHorizon he is a broken man who spends decades mourning what happened]]]].

* ''Disney/TheLionKing'' has a few of these.
** Nuka, however qualifies. His father chooses an unrelated cub over him, he's portrayed as TheUnfavourite to his mother, and seems to be the ButtMonkey of Zira's pride. While he does want power, he also wants to gain the favor and attention of Zira, who is more concerned with Kovu. In the end, he dies trying to prove himself to his mother, ''and even fails at that.'' He spends his last breath apologizing to Zira for failing, his death prompting one of the only displays of love and affection that Zira probably ever showed him.

* Joaquin from ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife''. On one hand he's fairly smug, has an air of EntitledToHaveYou towards Maria, and is a bit of a sexist. On the other hand he also had [[DisappearedDad his father killed]], [[MissingMom his mother walk out on him right afterward]], seems to be a predominately good person whose negative traits came from peer pressure/trying to live up to his father, and whether he knows it or not he's a HopelessSuitor to the girl he's loved most of his life.

He also lost his best friend who was like a brother to him and is being pressured to marry his other best friend when he clearly doesn't want to since they're both grieving, especially since she said she was only marrying him to get him to stay.

*[[HairRaisingHare Scamper]] from {{Igor}} qualifies is you think about it. He's bitter, grumpy, jaded, cynical and by far one of the most sarcastic CGI characters ever created but he's also suicidal and immortal which most likely means he'll outlive all his friends and can't do anything about it.

* Lampwick and the other Stupid Little Boys in ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' are a bunch of punks who enjoy destroying property, fighting, smoking, and drinking, but their ultimate fate ([[spoiler: being transformed into donkeys and sold into slavery]]) is far beyond what they deserve.

* King Haggard from WesternAnimation/TheLastUnicorn. The man was captured every living unicorn in the world and plans to harm our protagonist (and his own son!), but one can't help but feel sorry for his motivation: he's never been happy in all his life, and the only thing that ever gave him joy was the sight of unicorns. Anyone dealing with depression can surely understand, when your only source of happiness is one specific thing, and how that can make one act obsessive.
