* [[BrokenHero Oz Vessalius]] of ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' is, [[AllThereInTheManual according to the guidebook PandoraHearts 24 + 1: Last Dance,]] good at pretty much everything. Unfortunately, he has more emotional issues than...well.

Added DiffLines:

* Tiberius from Robert Graves' ''Literature/IClaudius'' is portrayed this way - he's immensely strong and healthy, one of Rome's greatest generals, an excellent administrator, and a student of philosophy. Unfortunately he's cursed with moral weakness and a domineering mother, and he ends up becoming a reclusive, paranoid, murderous pervert.

Added DiffLines:

* Attorney ''Literature/MickeyHaller'' from the Bosch series. Despite being a crack defense attorney with a well-known reputation for his veracity in defending his clients (especially in later books), he is full of self-loathing for defending the guilty and the strain his work puts on his relationship between his first ex-wife and their daughter. Doesn't help that his personal life is somewhat of a trainwreck - something always seems to knock him down when things start to go well.

** Zamasu slowly and steadily goes off the deep end after losing his sparring match with Goku. Not only does he become a complete zealot in his belief that mortals are evil and must be destroyed for universal peace, but [[spoiler: he also abandons his godly body and takes Goku's body as his own to acquire more power, [[YouAreWhatYouHate becoming the very thing he hates]]]]. His [[SanitySlippage sanity also takes a hit]] given his [[MoodSwinger wild mood swings]] as [[spoiler: Goku Black]].

to:

** Zamasu is the Supreme Kai-in-training of Universe 10 and is the most powerful Kai shown yet, capable of fighting evenly with Super Saiyan 2 Goku, whose base form is even stronger than Buu when he slaughtered most of the Kais of Universe 7 with relative ease, but he slowly and steadily goes off the deep end after losing his sparring match with Goku. Not only does he become a complete zealot in his belief that mortals are evil and must be destroyed for universal peace, but [[spoiler: he also abandons his godly body and takes Goku's body as his own to acquire more power, [[YouAreWhatYouHate becoming the very thing he hates]]]]. His [[SanitySlippage sanity also takes a hit]] given his [[MoodSwinger wild mood swings]] as [[spoiler: Goku Black]]. By the end of it, [[spoiler:he became one of the most powerful beings in the ''multiverse'' short of [[TopGod Zeno]] himself, but his sanity was completely destroyed in the process]].

* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' has a whole CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass thing going, like Vash above, but with those who know the truth about him cultivates a type of guardian dragon image and attempts to show no genuine weaknesses because they're under his protection and look up to him, and is almost universally admired and feared under his NomDeGuerre. He is, however, crawling with issues, mostly self-doubt and self-loathing but also some serious unresolved conflicts in his personal philosophy. Understandable in someone traumatically orphaned and enslaved around eight, raised by a {{tsundere}} drunkard [[TheAce genius]] with a very cynical view of the world, and became a terrifyingly effective assassin at fourteen. Who is now a TechnicalPacifist. In a nation that has just pulled itself out of war and is in its way to become ImperialJapan. His story is a TakeThat to the whole JidaiGeki fiction genre, ''and it shows''.

* "Where Do You Go To My Lovely?" by Peter Sarstedt is about a woman (Marie-Claire)who is beautiful and witty (''"You talk like Marlene Dietrich and you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire..."''), intelligent and with excellent taste (she's a graduate of the Sorbonne, owns a Picasso, dresses in Balmaine, listens to the Rolling Stones and drinks Napoleonic brandy) has famous friends and is famous in her own right. However the narrator, who is a childhood friend, recalls their shared origins as beggar children in Naples and suggests that beneath her incredibly glamorous life Marie-Claire still bears the scars of life on the streets.

** Among the Servants, Lancer, Berserker, and Saber all qualify. Lancer is easily the most skillful combatant out of the lot, but he has terrible luck, bad compatibility with his Master, and [[spoiler:a curse that makes women fall in love with him, including said master's fiancée]]. Berserker is one of the strongest Servants in the Nasuverse, capable of giving even [[StoryBreakerPower Archer]] a hard time even while handicapped by a sickly Master, but he's insane, and so fixated on Saber that he tends to have tunnel vision and thus get blindsided whenever she's around. Also, again, he's handicapped by his Master's frail condition. Saber is the best all-around combatant, and has the strongest overall abilities statwise, but she has the worst Master/Servant compatibility in the war ''bar none'', and is consistently a victim of circumstances, or her Master's underhanded tactics. In addition, [[spoiler:she's badly hampered by her guilt complex over her kingdom's fall, and her worry over Irisveil, who is literally dying in front of her with no way to stop it]]. And that's just how bad things are for them at the ''start'' of the conflict; by the end, everything is at least an entire order of magnitude worse for all three of them.

** Saber aka [[UsefulNotes/KingArthur Arthouria]] was this toward the end of her life: she suffered in her {{Masquerade}} out of duty, and became broken when it seemed to her that her country would've been better off if she hadn't tried, and someone else taken the role.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has Bismuth. A long missing member of the Crystal Gems from the original rebellion against Homeworld, she's funny, charming, and a [[TheBlacksmith master blacksmith]] who provides the other Crystal Gems with upgrades for their weapons. But it's soon revealed that the loss of her friends during the war had driven Bismuth into becoming a dangerous zealot who wanted to go against [[ThouShaltNotKill Crystal Gem teachings]] and [[FinalSolution start slaughtering the Homeworld elite wholesale]], going so far as to build a weapon designed to shatter to them in one hit. She had attacked Rose Quartz when the latter refused to approve of her plan and later attacked Steven for the exact same reason, forcing him to poof and bubble her back up.
