** Yuri "Yurio" Plisetsky is a rude BrattyHalfPint whose treatment of Yuri and Victor is sometimes sheer cruelty. He is also a very lonely kid who only got his first friend by the age of 15, is the sole provider for his family ''and'' is clearly aware that he's reaching a critical point in his career as a whole (he's going through puberty and is aware that the chances it'll bring to his body might ruin his [[DudeLooksLikeALady girlish appeal]], which is one of his main catches as an ice skater), which explains his drive to win.
** Jean-Jacques might be an InsufferableGenius who makes sure to guarantee everybody knows he is, or at least sees himself as, better than everybody else, but in episode 11 [[spoiler:the pressure of the Grand Prix Finals finally gets to him, his fear of the younger, more talented skaters and the older, more experience ones, together with the amount of pressure he puts in himself leads him to fumble all his jumps and eventually get a score so low, he can no longer win. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Yet, all his fans and specially his girlfriend keep cheering him on and screaming his name even after his low score.]]]]

* ''Manga/AkameGaKill'':
** Kurome, much like her sister, was sold to the Empire at birth and endured many horrors while being trained as an assassin. Unlike Akame, she was not chosen as an elite and was forced to take a PsychoSerum, which took a toll on her psyche and would eventually kill her. Without her sister, Kurome ended up a remorseless {{Yandere}} who gets a kick out of murder who, despite everything, still loves her sister.
** Mine is introduced as an InsufferableGenius and a {{Tsundere}} who loves teasing Tatsumi. It's also implied that this tsundere nature developed from her childhood, when she was ostracized for having foreign blood. In the main story proper, her closest friend is killed by a psychopath, and after [[DefrostingIceQueen shedding most of her jerkass traits]], [[spoiler:she falls into a coma in order to save Tatsumi]].

** Saito was kidnapped from his world, treated sub-humanly, made into a slave for a bratty, over-privileged little girl, and had his mind screwed with magically (though he doesn't know it).

* ''Anime/{{Kiznaiver}}'':
** Sonozaki, TheHeavy of the show is an EmotionlessGirl that forced a group of people(who were kidnapped and surgically operated without their consent) to participate in her experiment of sharing pain, pushing them in borderline life and death situations over the most trivial things. She is also [[spoiler:suffering constant pain due to the 19 original participants of the kizuna sending her their pain nineteen-fold, her EmotionlessGirl status is actually because she is so sedated all the time in order to keep able to live she can't even feel anything]]. This is somewhat deconstructed in universe, as Nico mentions that she doesn't care how awful was her life, based on the awful things she made them go through, and she wants to help her only because their friend wants them to.
** Maki Honoka, one of the Kiznas is brash, angry and snarks at everybody, she is also [[spoiler:still grieving over her LostLenore, who died after leaving her with the words that she will never let Maki move on from her, refusing herself to read the last chapter of the manga they were making together, even though that chapter was actually a letter to Maki to apologize and ask her to move on after her death]].

* Tomoko Kuroki from ''Manga/NoMatterHowILookAtItItsYouGuysFaultImNotPopular'' just wants to make friends and have a social life, despite her crippling social anxiety and [[NoSocialSkills utter lack of social graces]]. However, as often as she is simply the victim of [[CosmicPlaything circumstance]], she is also conceited, [[{{Narcissist}} narcissistic]], and [[HypocriticalHumor critical of others' flaws in spite of her own]]. This can sometimes make her even sadder, as her efforts to socialize are often sabotaged by her own shortcomings.

* Sakuya Ookochi from ''Manga/SensualPhrase''. He's a JerkAss and a BastardBoyfriend to his girlfriend Aine largely because of a scene where he attempted to rape her out of jealousy, and even when not being a BastardBoyfriend, he's a huge jerk even to his own bandmates. Then, it's shown that he has an extremely DarkAndTroubledPast (as in, [[spoiler:he's an HeroicBastard ChildOfRape, his "father" left him when he learned that baby Sakuya wasn't his kid, he was bullied all the time because of his heritage, and his LadyDrunk mom drank herself to death when he was a child).]] While said past explains pretty well why he's such an asshole, it still doesn't justify his horrible treatment of other people around him, which had to be toned down in the anime quite a bit... and it still wasn't enough to make him anything but a JerkAss.

** Another addition from the sequel is the WalkingSpoiler, [[spoiler:Seidou Takizawa]]. He's essentially a killing machine that gleefully murders RedShirts left and right, and even brutally torments and tortures Sasaki at length. But the implications of what transformed him into his current state are [[NightmareFuel beyond horrific]]. [[spoiler:During the two year TimeSkip between series, Aogiri transformed the former PluckyComicRelief into a monster through torture severe enough to turn his hair white and make him incapable of feeling pain, forced the MamasBoy to ''eat his parents'', and drove him insane through making him an incomplete [[CannibalismSuperpower Kakuja]]. And all of this happened because he wanted to protect his family, and broke formation to go save his friend]]. He's in the running for most tragic character in the series, as a result.

*** Kanae, who is Tsukiyama's cousin, is a callous young man [[spoiler: later turned out to be a female named Karen]] who looks down on everyone. He secretly hates Sasaki and others for having Tsukiyama's attention and tries to make their life hell. However, he has to deal with his feelings for Tsukiyama being unrequited. He openly harms himself when fretting about his love for Tsukiyama and devotion to his masters and varies between longing for Tsukiyama to get better and not be unstable anymore and return his feelings and wanting Tsukiyama to remain ill so he would be dependent on him. Eto ends up torturing him psychologically when he's vulnerable by telling him unsettling truths about himself he can't deny, [[EyeScream sewing his eyes open]], and sewing his lips into a GlasgowGrin. This causes him considerable SanitySlippage and causes him to go on a murderous rampage ending when [[spoiler: Sasaki decapitates him]]. Although he cuts off Sasaki's arm in his jealousy and madness and tries to kill him Sasaki returns the beating in kind. He then tosses Tsukiyama to his death, but [[spoiler: Kanae saves him at the cost of her own life right after Tsukiyama acknowledged her feelings for him]].

** Torso. He represents the most horrifying traits of a Ghoul, being a twisted sexual predator that mutilates his victims to satisfy his desires. He also in horribly abusive to Mutsuki despite claiming to love him. He literally doesn't know how to love. But it's shown [[FreudianExcuse not to be his fault]]. Ch. 78 focuses on his childhood, with him recounting how he was raised in isolation by his abusive father....after the two ate his mother to survive. After being abandoned alone for over a month, he dared to venture off the mountain and encountered a human girl that he befriended. After a particularly vicious beating, she ran away from home and Karao hid her in his family's tent where the two talked about running away to the ocean together. But in the morning, his father killed his OnlyFriend ate her while praising Karao for finally doing something right. He killed his father in a rage, and was left with only his friend's torso. Since then, he's been trying to find someone to replace her, which explains his attachment to Mutsuki. [[spoiler: The after-report of his death describes the most gruesome and graphic mutilation in the entire series. Mutsuki chopped his head off, then shoved something up his rectum all the way into his throat, chopped off his limbs, castrated him and shoved his genitals into the hole where his nose used to be, and cut out his eyes and tongue.]] While some fans thought he was too horrible to be sympathetic other fans felt a twinge of sympathy, especially the horrific picture in the manga of him smiling before his head disappears in the next shot depicting what Mutsuki did to him. His horrible childhood messed him up and made him the monster he was. Because of that Mutsuki killed him, but in his own twisted way Torso genuinely loved Mutsuki who was never going to love him back and believed this spark of love to be his salvation.

* [[CuteBruiser Taiga Aisaka]] of ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}''. Her violent emotional mood swings and stature complex stem more [[ParentalAbandonment from having a broken family]] than romantic issues, making her a borderline BrokenBird and a walking DeconsTruction of the popular {{Tsundere}} archetype. You could also reasonably argue that Taiga had become just a plain [[TheWoobie woobie]] by the end of the series.

* Pinocchio (Mock) in Anime/MokkuOfTheOakTree. He might have flaws and even tried to murder a child once, but he's one of the biggest Woobies in the Anime industry because he is continuously tormented, persecuted, taunted, hectorized, chastised, assaulted, picked on, humiliated, tricked, ridiculed, ostracised, beaten, downtrodden and subjected to degrading and inhumane treatment, and even shot in the final episode.

** Gaara of the Sand before [[spoiler:Naruto beat the crap out of him.]] He kills people for looking at him the wrong way and threatened to do the same to his older brother and sister (though to his credit, he never bothered carrying that out), but has grown up facing multiple attempts on his life from his own father, hearing that his uncle and mother, the two people he thought cared for him, never loved him [[spoiler:or so he thought at the time]]. Naruto, upon hearing what he's been through, wonders if he's so much stronger because of how much he suffered.
** Sasuke betrayed the Leaf Village and essentially sold it out to Orochimaru, later trying to kill his teammate Karin who was smitten with him. However, he ssentially [[WellDoneSonGuy struggled for his father's approval]], only to lose his entire family in the Uchiha clan massacre. Then his brother proceeded to shove the concept of revenge down his throat while forcing him to replay the deaths of his family for three days straight, when he was '''EIGHT''' and again four years later.



* Kimimaro nearly claimed the life of Naruto, Rock Lee, and Gaara, and was willing to kill his teammates if they disobeyed him. However, considering that he suffered from a terrible illness, was kept isolated by his clan before Orochimaru came along, and that Orochimaru happily sent him to die along with Kabuto, it's hard not to feel sorry for him.
** Pain is responsible for many deaths, [[spoiler: razed the Leaf Village and almost killed Hinata]] to teach Tsunade and Naruto lessons about pain, and is incredibly ruthless toward his goal of enforcing peace with tailed beast-based jutsu weapons, but his childhood was a long process of losing everyone he cared about and trying and failing to bring about peace.
