** Goro Akechi admits to having been an unwanted child who became a ace detective celebrity to feel wanted by someone. His newfound fame feels hollow to him considering how his adoring fans are clueless as to how much he had to crawl through to get to where he is today. [[spoiler:And then you find out that he orchestrated all the crimes he "solved" to become famous, and committed [[MurderIsTheBestSolution so much more]] on top of that. Though he knows how far he's fallen, Akechi refuses to admit that all the harm he caused in the name of his justice could have easily been avoided.]]

** An early episode had JD competing (purely in his own mind) with another intern (named Nick) to see who was the best between them and who should be the unofficial leader of that group of interns. Eventually JD has to concede defeat, as his rival can match JD's medical knowledge while also being more handsome, less socially awkward, more charismatic, less of a [[ProfessionalButtKisser suck-up]] and even has the girl JD likes interested in him. Hints are dropped throughout the episode however, that Nick is a StepfordSmiler who is repressing all his doubts and feelings. At the end of the episode Nick fails to save the life a 7 year old kid and [[HeroicBSOD completely breaks down]] and quits working at Sacred Heart.

--->'''Nick:''' That kid is eventually gonna die. Whether it's today, tomorrow, or a month from now. There's nothing I can do. Nothing works. Now his parents want to talk to me and what am I supposed to tell them?! "Peter lived a good long seven years?" Seven years, man! ... ''[whispers]'' I hate this place, I hate this job. I can't do it anymore. [[MadnessMantra I'm done. I'm done. I'm done]]. ''[[[BrokenTears starts crying]]]''\\

* American Founding Father UsefulNotes/AlexanderHamilton--whose face is on the ten-dollar bill--was the ultimate Broken Ace: he was one of the few famous Founders not to come from a land-wealthy family. Hamilton went from a poor orphan boy in the West Indies to Revolutionary War hero and father of American finance out of his sheer force of will. Meanwhile, his father left the family when Alexander was ten, his mother died of yellow fever two years later, his cousin who was supposed to take care of him and his brother committed suicide, one of his best friends died in battle, his eldest son died in a duel, causing his eldest daughter to become mentally unstable. Contemporaries routinely described him as cocky, strident, fiercely opinionated, and hot-tempered yet there is much evidence to suggest that for most of his adult life he was chonically insecure about his humble origins and being a bastard child and that he was constantly haunted by fears of not amounting to much as a statesman.

* ''Manga/{{Claudine}}'' de Montesse becomes this when he goes to university. While he's genuinely booksmart, kindhearted, world-weary and all, his BreakTheCutie past as well as his identity issues coming from being a female-to-male {{transsexual}} in early XX century France cause [[TheWoobie the poor dude]] lots of emotional trouble.
