* 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.

* The eponymous Kev from ''Webcomic/AliceAndKev'' is a selfish, sexually-aggressive bully and abusive father. He's also literally, factually insane and [[IJustWantToBeLoved doesn't really seem to understand why nobody can stand to be around him]].

* Hui, the titular monster from''Webcomic/TheArtOfMonsters''may not be the easiest being to get along with, but she genuinely cares for her master and itís hard not to feel sorry for her in the end.

** Anthony Carver has been a largely absent parent, is regarded by just about everyone as cold and emotionless, and the one time he contacted Antimony in-story it was primarily to relay a message to Kat's father, Donald. When he arrives in the flesh, it's as one of Annie's teachers, during which he quickly dismantles much of her character development, takes Reynardine, and forbids her from the forest. He starts to fall into the Woobie side of this trope in the chapter "Annie and the Fire", where its revealed that much of his time away was trying to find a way to [[spoiler:save Annie's mother Surma from death and, failing that, trying to bring her back]]. He was so desperate that he lets [[spoiler:otherworldly beings trick him into sacrificing his right hand to bring back Surma's soul]], remembering too late and to his horror that, [[spoiler:due to their etheric ancestry, Surma's soul is ''Annie's'' soul]]. He's grateful that [[spoiler:Zimmy's appearance]] stopped him.

But seeing Annie, and her resemblance to Surma, pushed him over the edge, causing much of the bad treatment.

** Jeanne. [[spoiler: She's separated from her lover and turned into a human sacrifice by her friends, meets her lover again only for him to be murdered right in front of her, lies at the bottom of a river alone until she dies, and is forced to guard the river as a ghost until her ''soul'' rots away.]] Her reaction to seeing a genuinely happy teenage girl is to assume she's mocking her and try to kill her.

* Ferret from ScooterAndFerret has shades of this. He's a GrumpyBear but you have to feel for him at times.

* Jamie in ''KhaosKomix'' is homophobic, a bully, and just all around mean. It's hinted at in some of the earlier stories, but it's not until his chapter (the last one) that the reader finds out that [[spoiler: he was sexually abused by a neighbor when he was a child and physically and emotionally abused by his mother.]] He doesn't think of this as a FreudianExcuse, though, insisting in his internal narration that he's just a jerk.
* ''DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'': Abel. He is strongly implied to have driven all of his previous roommates to insanity, feeds off of [[BadPowersBadPeople misery]], and never leaves SarcasmMode. On the other hand, he has a lot of bad luck and [[DeusAngstMachina his backstory]] is tragic even for a CrapsaccharineWorld.
* Candy from ''GirlsWithSlingshots'': a petty, nasty little (un)professional dominatrix, who was (is?) the closest thing the strip had to a villain...until Jameson (her best and only friend) tells her off due to the increasingly mean pranks she was playing on Jameson's fiancée, Maureen (up to and including [[http://www.girlswithslingshots.com/comic/gws786/ replacing their wedding rings]] with [[DudeNotFunny baby seal leather cock rings]] ''at the ceremony''). You can't help but feel sorry for her when Jameson tells her to go pound sand. And doubly so when guest star [[Webcomic/SomethingPositive Davan]] - possibly the king of this trope among webcomic characters - [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp09292009.shtml calmly but brutally]] {{lampshade}}s her stupidity.
