* The UsefulNotes/Bollywood film ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sooryavansham Sooryavansham]]'', in which Creator/AmitabhBachchan was in a dual role has Heera as the odd one out of his family. While his two older sons and daughter are seen as high-achievers by their father, Thakur Bhanupratap Singh coldly regards his youngest son as an idiot who failed to live up the high expectations he set for his children. But despite being neglected by his family, [[WellDoneSonGuy Heera is very benevolent and obedient]], and hopes to earn the respect of his father. [[spoiler:His father finally acknowledges him as his son in the end.]]

* Hans from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. Being the youngest of thirteen sons meant that he was an easy target for [[BigBrotherBully his older brothers (especially Rudi and Runo, who bully Hans the most)]] to pick on - he's been the victim of countless practical jokes and pranks, not to mention being pummeled, thrown off moving carts or being shoved in the mud numerous times - in essence, becoming the ExtremeDoormat for his family. And in ''A Frozen Heart'', his father often views him as a "weakling" compared to his older brothers, and [[ParentalNeglect therefore does nothing to stop them from bullying him]], going so much as to unabashedly acknowledge his lack of interest in his son's presence during family and diplomatic gatherings. Ironically, Hans being against the violent methods of his family made him the WhiteSheep, but his desire to [[WellDoneSonGuy appeal to his father and brothers]] [[UsedToBeASweetKid slowly darkened him]].

** The Ninth Doctor counts. Whereas all [[spoiler: acknowledged]] incarnations of the Doctor up until that point have dressed like maniacs and been extremely quirky, the Ninth Doctor suffers from borderline-PTSD and starts out as an angry and bitter man, prone to violent outbursts and rages. He also has one of the shortest runs for any Doctor, with only one season.

* ''Manga/BlackClover'' has Noelle Silva, the daughter of the Silva family who can't properly control her magic, due to that, she is believed to be a shame for her BadassFamily, made it even worse since their mother died giving birth to her, her siblings openly state her, to others and to her, to be a shame and think she should have died instead of their mother.
** In a sense, though, she is also the WhiteSheep, as she is the sole member of her family so far who is not a raging, elitist JerkAss that actively diminishes those of the lower class.

** Jon Snow of the Stark family, as he is Ned Stark's [[HeroicBastard illegitimate son]] among his five trueborn half-siblings. Though he is loved by his father Ned, trueborn siblings, and uncle, and is close with them, he is TheUnfavorite to his father's wife, Catelyn. Catelyn resents Jon because he is Ned's son by [[MissingMom another woman]] who Ned refuses to identify and -- due to Ned's fierce protectiveness of Jon -- she fears Ned may have loved Jon's mother more than her. On the other hand, Jon is raised as one of them by Ned as Ned's son and mentored alongside his half-brother Robb -- Ned's heir -- who Jon shares a close relationship with -- rather than being sent away or being completely unacknowledged.
*** Arya Stark -- Jon's youngest sister and who Jon is very close to -- is also this in their family due to her rebellious nature and desire to pursue unladylike pursuits not exactly befitting a highborn lady. Her other siblings generally excel in their expected roles: Robb is set to be [[{{TheGoodKing}} Lord of Winterfell]], Sansa is a ProperLady, Bran wants to be [[{{KnightInShiningArmor}} Knight]] and Rickon is [[{{TheBabyOfTheBunch}} the baby]] and even Jon is mentored closely together with Robb by their father. Meanwhile, Arya has difficulty finding an outlet: she has [[{{WildChild}} "wolf blood" in her]], prefers to go out [[{{RebelliousSpirit}} befriending lowborns rather than stay inside minding her courtesies]] and excels at [[{{TomboyPrincess}} masculine skills]] like sword-fighting, riding and archery rather than ladylike arts. Catelyn even admits that Arya is "a trial" and, along with the Stark family features she shares with Jon, it's one of the reason she's closest to fellow misfit Jon.
