* Barnaby Brooks Jr. from ''Manga/TigerAndBunny''. In the public eye he's a handsome new up-and-coming superhero and friend of the people; charming, well-educated, eminently marketable. In private he's cold, cynical, obsessively introverted, haunted by a DarkAndTroubledPast involving [[spoiler:the murder of his beloved parents when he was just four years old]], [[LonersAreFreaks has severe trust and relationship issues]] and [[IneffectualLoner has never had a single friend]].

** Tywin Lannister is the most powerful and rich lord in Westeros but in reality is a man haunted by his father's past failings and fears his children will end up the same.

* Depending on how you build your stats, it's perfectly possible to play Ayano as one in ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator''. She can be a popular girl who gets good grades, is strong enough to fight trained martial artists, is dedicated to a school club, and [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer can easily seduce both male and female classmates]]. However, in the game's backstory she felt [[EmptyShell nothing]] until she fell in love with her beloved Senpai. At which point, she became a StalkerWithACrush. You can choose a variety of methods to eliminate girls who also share an interest in your Senpai, ranging from simply pairing them up with someone else, to manipulation, to flat out murder, but Ayano will always be messed up. WordOfGod also states that the reason why she has so much capability is because she's so [[{{Determinator}} determined]] to make sure Senpai is hers that she can accomplish anything she puts her mind to in pursuit of that goal.

* Auron from ''Videogame/FinalFantasyX'' is revered as a legendary guardian who aided High Summoner Braska in defeating Sin. He's an unflappable badass who easily chops up dragons with a huge sword. He's the wise and snarky older mentor to the rest of the cast. All of that masks a bitter and broken man who wanted to change the world and failed. [[spoiler:He failed to stop Braska and Jecht from sacrificing themselves to stop Sin. And when he discovered they had sacrificed themselves for false hope, he even failed to avenge them. There's also the little fact that he's Unsent. It doesn't much more "broken" than being already ''dead''.]]

* Creator/MaryKayBergman is a particularly tragic example of this trope. She was a renowned voice actress thanks to her sheer talent and mentored the likes of Creator/TaraStrong and Creator/GreyDeLisle. Unfortunately, she has been suffering from severe depression throughout her life, culminating in her [[DrivenToSuicide suicide in 1999]].

* ''PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' has a few. [[spoiler:Adrian Andrews]] is cool and professional to hide the fact that she's got a severe codependency problem and is still aching from the trauma of [[spoiler:her mentor Celeste Inpax's suicide]], a fact that Franziska takes full advantage of. [[spoiler:When she shows up again, her demeanor is far changed. She's flightier and less professional, but also seems happier]].

* In ''Fanfic/{{Reconciliation}}'', ''[[KatawaShoujo Hanako]]'' is a best-selling author, but has no real friends, apart from her publicist Sho; as a result of her Bad Ending, she cut ties with Hisao and Lilly because she was too ashamed and afraid to face them. [[spoiler:By the end of the fic, the "broken" part seems to have faded; while Hisao is dead, Hanako is once again friends with Lilly, and is in a relationship with Sho]].
