* ''Webcomic/{{Housepets}}'': Tiger Arbelt. Despite being mainly serving portrayed as a secondary comic relief, Tiger Arbelt from ''Webcomic/{{Housepets}}'' relief character, he has some serious psychological issues to work though.

He social outcast among the dogs simply because he has a HairTriggerTemper catlike name.

**When you factor in the fact that King used to belong to PETA, he stops being TheWoobie and starts being this.

* Wayne from ''Webcomic/TwoGuysAndGuy'' is a PlayedForLaughs example. As the comic's ButtMonkey he is often on the receiving end of the two other protagonists' ComedicSociopathy, but whenever we see him interact with people outside the group, we are reminded that he, too, [[http://www.twogag.com/archives/1278 is a]] [[http://www.twogag.com/archives/3576 horrible]] [[http://www.twogag.com/archives/3693 person]].

* When we first meet Kieth from TwoKinds, he is kind of a jerk to everybody. The [[AmnesiacHero 'Hero']] is justified, since he has a reputation for being evil, but [[CatGirl Flora]] seems to be a target of FantasticRacism. Turns out he [[spoiler: Was bullied and looked down on by his father for being weak. Was framed for killing his mother and father when he was a child, which had him exiled from his homeland. After that, he met up with the Catfolk, fell in love with one of them, only to be stood up on his wedding day.]] All of this is revealed to the audience and resolved in the course of two days. Suddenly, his Jerkass behavior seems a lot less mean spirited then it did three hundred comics ago. Did we mention that in those two days he had to watch two people he cared about die (one of whom he killed), and tried to kill his new love interest? Guy has had a really bad day.

* Luka of ''Webcomic/TheMeek'' is a vengeful {{badass}} dictator who comes from an extremely misogynistic and warlike culture and has a tumultuous relationship with his wife and children. At the same time, his life has been one long string of BreakTheCutie that's left him physically mutilated, and despite the above, he does seem to genuinely love his family.\\\

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Sakana}}'': Yuudai is a jerk that often makes his life to make the work of the main characters as awful as humanly possible, and it's not up until way later that we learn that he's actually [[SourOutsideSadInside very lonely and sad]], has a hard relationship with his family and [[spoiler:up until recently, was in an abusive relationship]]. He starts growing out of his jerkiness after meeting Taisei.
* ''Webcomic/CheckPlease'': revelations made by Jack in Year 3 makes Kent's character look like this [[HarsherInHindsight looking back]]. While his original actions on the Epikegster made him look like a BitchInSheepsClothing, when Jack states that [[spoiler: his relationship with Kent was, from his eyes, merely physical, and doomed to end while Kent is still very much in love with him]], that besides the fact that Kent is a [[spoiler:closeted professional player]] who his only and biggest friend cut relationships with after a overdose with no explanation, really makes his actions seem to come from sadness and loneliness.
** Jack himself was this on the start. He was a jerk to Bitty for seemingly no good reason to the point where even Bitty disliked him, but he is also a RecoveredAddict with severe self esteem issues and that the media and popular rumors insist on [[MaliciousSlander picking on]]. He does though, grows out of his jerkiness after he starts befriending Bitty, by the time they [[spoiler:start dating]], Jack is a completely NiceGuy.

* Benni from ''Webcomic/ForestHill'' is a school bully who gets into a fight with Tanya after she refuses to kiss him and when Kaleb came to try to save her, he gave Kaleb a serious head injury that put him in the hospital for days and causes him to start having seizures. Then it turns out that Benni has an extremely [[AbusiveParents abusive]] and neglectful father who forces him to have sex with men for money (which seems to be the only reason he cares for Benni at all), and poor Benni doesn't even realize that this isn't normal.
