** The Delgado incarnation of the Master ''just'' skirts this. He is legitimately quite dangerous. But also very much his own worst enemy, as most of his failures are due to his tendency to come up with overcomplicated plans that [[StupidEvil screw himself over for no reason]]. Add in the fact that he can sometimes be childish and rather naive, and you might just be able to forget how he implicitly killed forty thousand people in his first story.

The Doctor treats him more with pity than anger or contempt. ** Eldrad in "The Hand of Fear" possesses Sarah Jane, and accidentally causes an innocent man to die by possessing them into a murderous frenzy state in which they [[DisneyVillainDeath fall off things]]. She tortures the Doctor for little reason and tortures other people with an AgonyBeam - but at the same time it's difficult not to feel sorry for her due to her (apparently) unjust exile and physical beauty. Upon regenerating [[GenderBender into a male form]] he reveals he's actually just a genocidal megalomaniac, but still inspires pity due to his despair about the other Kastrians cheating him out of his victory.

** Also, Chris Keller. Despite how terribly manipulative Frax from ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce''. He was a kind scientist who saved [[BigBad Ransik]] from poisoning, who repaid his kindness by insulting and attempting to kill him. Fran rebuilt himself as a robot and joined Ransik with the intent to get his revenge. Near the end of the series, Frax gets a chance to talk with [[AntiVillain Nadira]], who has been conflicted about her father's hatred of humans. In the end, Frax is reprogrammed and destroyed. ** Deker from ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai. Once an ordinary human, he was nearly killed in a fire. His wife made a {{Deal with the Devil}} with [[TheChessmaster Serrator]] to practically everyone save his life. But, Serrator tricked her into making Deker a BloodKnight human/Nighlok hybrid.

Both seem to delight in being absolutely vile to everyone they know, but neither is deprived of moments of vulnerability or humanity. Ultimately, they have loneliness in common. In-universe, Josh Alexander recognises both of them as Jerkass Woobies and befriends both in an attempt to encourage them to be better people. That's until he himself goes nuts and gets [[DemonicPossession demon-eyes]].

** Zack Powers is a subversion. He may have had a difficult childhood (a negligent father and an alcoholic mom), but his embezzlement of company money, trashing the factory just to spite his father, and his manipulation of Carmen into running away and having sex with him shreds all sympathy you can have for him.

* ''Series/HouseOfAnubis''. Everyone has their moments, however a few people stand out. ** For starters, you have Patricia Williamson. She did some pretty nasty things, such as the fake initiation for Nina, complete with locking her in the attic, throwing away the key, and nearly getting her in trouble with Victor twice. However, she was also the one who was desperate to save her best friend, Joy, when everyone else was willing to just forget about her; She was betrayed by nearly everyone she trusted before Sibuna came along; Kidnapped by a person she had rescued just a few episodes before...and that's just scratching the surface. ** Jerome Clarke. A [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]], uncaring prankster who gladly sold out his friends on occasion if it benefited him. He blackmailed Alfie, his own best friend, and in the third season cheated on his girlfriend Mara with Willow. But at the same time, dude has been through [[ParentalAbandonment Parental Abandonment,]] [[DoggedNiceGuy an unrequited crush]] [[ObliviousToLove on a girl who was completely oblivious to his feelings,]] etc. He really is trying to be a good person and admitted it, but cannot shake his bad habits. ** Joy Mercer. Oh, poor Joy. She's been relentless in trying to attract Fabian's attention, and wrote an incredibly nasty article in the school paper trying to get Nina to leave. But there's no denying her life is a MESS- kidnapped by her father just for it to turn out that she was not the chosen one, coming back just to realize Nina basically took her place in the house, ignored by Sibuna even when she wasn't doing bad things...

* Nathan in ''{{Misfits}}'' (E4 Channel, UK) is very much shaping up to be a Jerkass Woobie. While he started off as a pretty straightforward jerk, moments in which he reconnects with his Mum, has a fight with his Dad, and we see him shell-shocked after barely surviving an attack by his rabid probation officer in an alterna-present (it's complicated. Watch the show. No, seriously, watch the show) all point squarely at him being a classic example of a Jerkass Woobie. The fact that they have cast the rather pretty Creator/RobertSheehan in the role also indicates that this is exactly the effect the programme makers wanted.

* Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell from ''PrisonBreak'' certainly fits this. He's an unrepentant AxCrazy psychopath, murdered children, is a racist, and is a DepravedBisexual of the highest order who will get it on with AnythingThatMoves. But his horrible childhood (being the product of incest and rape, being molested by his father, and forced to memorize entire dictionaries) combined with some of the horrible things that happen to him in the series (having his hand cut off, for starters) really stirs up some pity for the bastard. It becomes more apparent in the fourth season when T-Bag slowly starts BecomingTheMask after taking on a fake identity, genuinely wanting redemption, only for it to just not work out in the end. Robert Knepper (who played him) noted this pretty well.

* Howard Moon from ''TheMightyBoosh''. He's a pompous, deluded, self-absorbed misanthrope who seems to cause more trouble than he's worth, but is put through hell in the course of most episodes, to the point where he more than wins the audience's sympathy. At least once in most live shows, there's a scene where he's cruelly picked on or gets incredibly depressed, and the accompanying sympathetic "''Awww''" from the audience is loud enough to warrant a response from Howard.

But the storyline makes it ''very'' clear just what cause she has to be this way, and as a result, the aforementioned viewers are torn between wanting to slap her in the face and just giving her a goddamn hug already because she needs one ''so'' badly. By the end of the three-hour, two-part pilot, the mask has cracked, and she begins to open up to her partner instead of shoving him away. She becomes progressively less [[CharacterDevelopment bitchy and defensive]] as the series goes on; although she never loses it completely, she goes from this trope to a {{Woobie}} with a JerkassFacade that isn't much of a facade at all.

He seems caught in a vicious cycle: Everyone assumes he's a screwup, he tries to prove them wrong but it doesn't work, he becomes indifferent and complacent, and everyone thinks he just doesn't care.
