* Of the Looney Tunes, Bugs Bunny is one most often given an EscortMission, which forces him to postpone his vacation or delay gratification of some other pleasure he was looking forward to. Being a decent person, he'll do it, regardless of how much trouble he runs into or how long it takes to complete because IGaveMyWord. This doesn't negate how much grumbling he'll do on the way, though.
** The perfect example of this is in the short "8-Ball Bunny," where Bugs promises to take what he thinks is a bird in a tuxedo (actually a famous ice-skating penguin) back where he came from. The look on Bugs's face when he realizes how far he'll have to go (doubly so at the end) to keep his word is priceless.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender,'' Zuko suffers a HeroicBSOD after setting Appa free from captivity to help Aang, symbolically ending his quest to capture the Avatar. Long before that, his inherently good nature also resulted in his father burning off a quarter of his face and banishing him until he completes what, at the time, was considered an incompleteable task.

**Being an Avatar in general, you have to devote your life to mastering all 4 elements and bringing balance to the world. All this is told to you at age 16 by the way, or in Aang and Korra's case much younger. Nevermind the fact that the Avatar has no choice in the matter, which sucks if you're someone like Aang who "never wanted to be an Avatar".

** * And speaking of Trunks, holy ''crap'' is he the perfect example of this more than Future Gohan. As a teenager, Trunks really wanted to help Gohan defeat the androids, not understanding how strong they are. Even when trying to become a Super Saiyan, he didn't get enough push until Gohan dies, at least in the anime. This broke him as a result to the point of becoming a NoNonsenseNemesis to his enemies. After spending time in the past fighting stronger versions of Androids 17, 18, and then later Perfect Cell, things finally ''seem'' to go his way after he destroys all the androids and later prevent Majin Buu's revival. That is until [[spoiler: Goku Black]] attacked his world, murders [[spoiler: his mother]] and several innocent people, and nearly kills Future Mai. After seeing Gohan's family for the first time in the past, he breaks down that he would never have a peaceful life since his happiness was stolen from him by Black. When he returns to the future for the second time to fight [[spoiler: Goku Black and Future Zamasu]] with the help of Goku and Vegeta, he is told by them that it's his fault that the Earth is destroyed because of his [[spoiler: time-traveling]]. This causes him to [[RageBreakingPoint snap]] and gain a new Super Saiyan form that ''still'' isn't strong enough to fend them off. And then when [[spoiler: Goku Black and Future Zamasu fused to create Merged Zamasu, he manages to cut him down using the energy of everyone still alive on the planet, only for Merged Zamasu to become an EldritchAbomination of multiversal proportions who kills the rest of humanity]]. Goku is forced to [[spoiler: summon Future Zeno'O who not only destroys Merged Zamasu, but the entire ''timeline'']]. And you know why his life is ''not'' a happy one.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Party member Ryuji Sakamoto often laments that, as your heroic PhantomThief group works anonymously in the shadows, they're never allowed to take any credit or reap actual rewards for their good deeds. Each villain you encounter has meanwhile been exploiting their position of power to get all sorts of benefits for themselves.

** Jaime Lannister is in prime position to tell you which is harder, Good or Evil. He's tried both at various points, with iffy success. So far, "being sufficiently cunning to get away with being either Good or Evil" seems to be the hardest part of all. His proudest, and arguably most heroic deed, earned him the name of Kingslayer, after all. And, that got him a world of hurt.

* Superman had powers since he was a child, but Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} was a normal, fifteen-year-old girl until she arrived on Earth. She remembers having a normal life and [[https://maidofmight.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/superman-282_01.jpg she just wants to be a normal girl again]], free from the pressure and the burdens of having super-powers. And she often feels she isn't good or worthy enough for being a hero. Several times she has wanted to give up her Supergirl identity but she can not stop herself from helping people.

* ''Comicbook/SpiderMan'': Spider-Man is the best of the good guys ''because'' he always has the option of walking away. He can just throw away his costume and live in obscurity whenever he chooses, but he doesn't. He accepts that the good he does is worth the price he pays and fights the good fight. It's slightly masochistic, really but [[ChronicHeroSyndrome it's not his fault.]]

** Poor Brienne. She tries her hardest to live up to the ideals of the KnightInShiningArmor and, to be fair, she does a bang-up job. Whenever she gets a choice, she always picks the harder, more honourable and virtuous route. And, Westeros finds a way to kick her in the teeth for it as ironically as it can. Every ''bloody'' time. On the plus-side, she been badass enough to avoid the ''deaths'' that tried to come calling. So far.
