* Mr. Cat from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}''. Things barely ever go right for him (although that's usually LaserGuidedKarma), and the hints to his DarkAndTroubledPast are terrible.

* ''WesternAnimation/PowerpuffGirls'': Buttercup. She can be mean and generally rude, but she's never had actually attention. She's not a bad girl or even remotely evil. She's misunderstood and lets her anger take over her, even if her sisters are trying to help.

** Mojo Jojo in "A Very Special Blossom", when he almost gets blamed for something [[TemporarilyAVillain Blossom]] did when he was spending the whole episode not planning on committing crimes, but on wishing his deceased father a happy Father's Day, and in "The Powerpuff Girls Rule!", after he gives up hope for a perfect world due to being forced to quit trying to rule the world.

**Eddie The Squirrel also has his moments. He's by far one of the most obnoxious characters in the show but in a couple later episodes like Shriek On Ice where Cliff tells him to get lost and all he can do is stare back with tears in his eyes, it's enough to make you feel kinda sorry for the poor pest.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': Pacifica Northwest may be a stuck-up AlphaBitch, but in "The Golf War", she is shown to be pressured by her parents to meet their expectations and not lose the golf game, plus she doesn't understand the concept of sharing. [[spoiler: Then it turns out her father controls her every action with a bell, Pavlov style, and is very afraid to talk back to them]].

** Bart, despite being a BrattyHalfPint, also qualifies in plenty of episodes. For example, he abused by his father (on a regular basis) and sister ("On a Clear Day, I Can't See My Sister"), was once resented by his mother ("Marge Be Not Proud"), had a mean kindergarten teacher ("Lisa's Sax") was nearly being held back ("Bart Gets An F"), trapped in a well ("Radio Bart"), nearly killed by Mr. Burns ("The Curse Of The Flying Hellfish"), Groundskeeper Willie ("Girly Edition") and Sideshow Bob (on a semi-regular basis) and harassed by the whole town several times ("Bart's Girlfriend", "Miracle on Evergreen Terrace", "The Boys of Bummer"). He also had to watch his dog in a wheelchair, and lost his dog multiple times. One of which he was nearly killed by his dog. With all this crap, it's a wonder he didn't commit suicide (he almost did in "The Boys of Bummer").

** Frank Grimes is a very [[BaseBreaker divisive]] character. On one hand, he had miserable childhood, worked hard for little rewards or pay, and had to work with Homer, a lazy, stupid employee who had no understanding of sacrifice. On the other hand, Grimes' response to this was to lash out at Homer and try to ruin him, and this was ''after'' Homer tried to make it up to Grimes. When his attempt to make Homer look stupid fail, he snaps and [[spoiler: kills himself. Even his funeral was overshadowed by Homer's stupidity.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Peridot. She was [[TheHeavy effectively the main villain for the latter half of season one]], with her boss Yellow Diamond as a presence who only got name-dropped now and then with one appearance later in the series. She knows if she succeeds, Earth is doomed, and she really doesn't care. However, she's a PunchClockVillain who gets no respect, and ever since being stuck on Earth, has only wanted to get what she was assigned to do over and done with so she can get off this mudball and go home. As time wears on, she's driven to SanitySlippage by her repeated defeats and Yellow Diamond being in no hurry to help. On top of that, destroying Earth isn't her master plan or anything; it's a by-product of a larger scheme put in place by others a very long time ago, and she is as screwed as we are if she can't leave, hence her desperation. If that isn't bad enough, we find in "Catch and Release" that [[spoiler: she's not a cyborg or a new kind of gem as we believed; all her tools and weaponry come from her suit, and once deprived of it, we find her true self is child-sized and has no powers. By the end, she's reduced to hiding in the bathroom while being terrified that things like toothbrushes or towels are actually weapons the main characters plan to use against her, and clutching the single boot that remains of her former arsenal like a child's security blanket.]] You just want to hug her.

** Amethyst. She's mischievous and frequently shows disregard for the feelings of others, but it's hard not to feel sorry for her [[spoiler: once it's revealed that she ''hates'' herself due to being a product of the Kindergarten, a Gem site that sucked the life out of the Earth (what exactly is meant by that isn't very clear, but we are shown the results and they are ''not'' good) to produce new Gems; this results in her feeling stranded from even her family of 5,000 years, as she assumes they look down her as much as she does. In addition, like the rest of the Crystal Gems, she is still having a hard time coping with the loss of their leader, Rose, who was like a mother to
her.]] Many of her {{Jerkass}} moments can actually be chalked up to her trying to shut away or deal with those issues (poorly).

** Timmy Turner. Yes, he can be an insensitive jerk at times, but when you consider what his parents and babysitter are like, it's kind of understandable why he would act in such a way, and it makes you want to hug the poor guy. He has a villainous SadistTeacher(who, despite his ineptitude, would be a more nurturing parent than Timmy's own, barring Timmy having to stop Crocker's magic-related schemes), is constantly belittled for his appearance, is constantly beat up and bullied at school, and he was shown with explicit detail how the world would be far better off without him, which was reality essentially giving him a ReasonYouSuckSpeech. It's been explicitly stated he's gone to therapy several times, apparently since he was ''five'' (his parent's way of dealing with an imaginary friend).

After all the only requisite to be granted a Fairy Godparent is to be '''the most miserable child in the world'''.
