** In ''[[TheMovie Big Picture Show]]'', the viewer learns that [[spoiler:Eddy has been physically abused by his own brother for his entire life and his jerkass personality was a desperate cry for acceptance and his way to mask his inferiority complex]]. The other kids found out his secret, much to their horror. Thankfully, they helped him by standing up to [[spoiler:his brother]], but the damage had already been done. When [[spoiler:his brother]] is defeated, [[spoiler: Eddy's mask cracks and he admits that he had been lying about everything his brother did because he believed that he would be "cool" if he did, only to find out that it just made him more hated. This also allowed him, and the other Eds, [[EarnYourHappyEnding to finally be accepted by the other kids]]]].
** May Kanker has shades of this, mainly in the Valentine's Day special. Really, all three of the Kankers could fall into this. Yes, they are temperamental, possessive, rude and unhygienic, but there have been moments that show they DO care for each other. They have barely any physical traits in common and it's heavily implied their mother ReallyGetsAround and they have three different Dads who aren't around anymore, so as such they latched on to the Eds because that's all they know how to do. Notably, after spending most of the series violently pursuing, the Movie shows them actually doing their best to protect the Eds from the wrath of the rest of the Cul-de-sac; it can be inferred that dubious ways of going about it, they do genuinely have feelings for the Eds.

** In some episodes, like "Babies in Toyland", Angelica's ImagineSpot involves a figure that she's pretending is there giving her a "The Reason You Suck" Speech; essentially, she's telling herself that she's a selfish brat. This, coupled with her confession in Rugrats in Paris seems to suggest that on some level she knows how awful she can be and absolutely hates herself for it. Poor girl.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'':
** The Riddler, whose abusive father, unfair boss, and [[spoiler: treacherous girlfriend]] all drove him to a life of crime, and in the end, he was denied revenge on any of them.
** Poison Ivy of the same series, though it's far more apparent in the comic spin-off ''The Batman Strikes'' (which explores her character in more depth).
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'': Willie Watt was bullied in school, picked on especially by the resident JerkJock and the gym teachers, and his own father is just as harsh on him. He has no friends, and the AlphaBitch only agreed to go to the prom with him to piss off the JerkJock who bullies him. So he steals his dad's giant construction robot called the Golem to act out revenge. After being arrested and sent to juvenhile hall, he undergoes a TrainingFromHell and gets PsychicPowers from the accident with the Golem, pretends he's the ghost of a dead student, and attacks the people who wronged him, even trying to steal a kiss from the Alpha Bitch with his psychokinetic abilities, until Batman arrives. In the end, he's defeated by tricked into knocking himself out with a tree sent flying by his own powers. As he lay unconscious, all everyone present could do is give him pity. It's later revealed that he was sent back to juvenile hall, where no one will visit him, not even his father, out of fear.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'': Angelica Pickles spends most of her time mistreating her baby cousin and his friends, but there are episodes that showed a softer side to her:
** She may mistreat​ the rest of her friends, but there are episodes that show that she does care about them. Also, her mother concentrates more on her job than her own family, and her father spends most of his time doting on her, which causes her to grow up spoiled. Also, she has very few friends outside of Suzie, whom she treats as a rival, but does ultimately see her as one of her only friends.

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'':Throughout the seires, a large part of Starscream's appeal is that he's both a horribly abused character and a narcissistic asshole. The ratio of him being beaten with his own dislodged arm should be equal to the times he [[TheStarscream backstabs someone else]].

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz wants to take over '''THE ENTIRE TRI-STATE AREA''', but his backstories makes one wonder whether it's because he's truly evil, or if he's just a confused individual. For example, when he was younger, he used up the allowance he had saved up for a year to get his mother a teddy bear, which she immediately handed to his younger brother, Roger. As a matter of fact, when he makes a Least-likely-inator, he mentions in passing that one of the things he could do with it is 'make my father love me'.
