* ''Fanfic/{{Quicken}}'':
** Emma was an average, carefree teenager… then she was assaulted and nearly raped. From that point on, she’s determined to survive not matter what and doing whatever it takes because no one else will help her.
** When she finally meets her best friend, it’s implied that Taylor became this as well after losing her mother and Emma in a very short lapse of time. She looks more adult, grimmer and more physically fit.

* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'':
** After losing her mother, being abandoned by her father, being treated like crap by NERV, used like cannon fodder against giant monsters, being mind-raped and abandoned... Asuka wakes up after spending several months in a coma and starts to get better.
-->“We make our own lives, not the lives others want for us.” Stop, a part of Asuka screamed as she spoke. Just stop now. Please stop. “If you depend on others, then you are weak, because you can’t live for yourself. It’s always what others want and what they impose on you. Even if it’s your own mother.”
** Shinji also starts to recover from his past issues after the war.

** Courage himself fits this trope very nicely in the episode Remembrance of Courage Past, especially [[spoiler: when suddenly remembering his family who was sent to space years before the show]] ''even'' Eustace's trademark ooga booga did the trick, which ''always'' scared him.

* [[FanFic/FalloutEquestriaEmptyQuiver]]: Despite being one of the much more optimistic stories set in the FoE universe, it's later learned that Crash Dive's blunt and extremely bitter qualities stem from this. [[spoiler: Her first and last mission as a true soldier of the Enclave ended in disaster after her platoon is seemingly wiped out and she is left stranded in the wasteland. A lucky attack by a raider badly damages both wings to the point where they're little more than a charred useless mess, and the constant mental and physical agony drives her into a severe Med-X addiction. Combined with the Enclave's propaganda, this incident causes her to become so paranoid she isolates herself from the wasteland and almost forces her to commit suicide. Even after meeting up with the heroes, she's so overly protective of Night Strike - the only other pegasus she has seen in decades - that she almost murders another member of the group over light teasing. To make matters worse, just as Crash Dive starts to genuinely recover from this, Night Strike begins to gradually slide down this slope herself.]]

*Music/LanaDelRey uses this trope a fair bit in her albums, but her 2014 album "Ultraviolence" probably does this the most. As ever, Lana adapts herself to sing through various characters throughout the record with recurring motifs, that of being a young woman who finds herself trapped and participating in a chaotic world of drugs, drinking, gun crime, gang violence, abusive relationships and prostitution. It's fair enough to say that she does inhabit this in "Born to Die" (despite the album's tone being very classy, romantic and idealised) and maybe even a bit in "Honeymoon" despite becoming her own independent, much stronger person by then, but Ultraviolence, as suggested by its name, shows the ugly, rough side of Hollywood glamour that Lana has had to toughen up to in order to survive.

*Music/MarinaAndTheDiamonds's "Electra Heart" album is a physical embodiment of this trope. The character Electra Heart herself proudly brags about the fact that she happily breaks the hearts of many "just for fun", but only because she's badly damaged and heartbroken herself. Her rebellious behaviour has earned her a bad reputation, with people labelling her as a "primadonna", a "homewrecker", and a "21st-century whore". Proclaiming herself as the "queen of no identity", Electra covers up her vulnerability with a cold, steely attitude dazzled with glitter, pink dresses and the infamous heart on her cheek, which acts to hide her true feelings.
--> ''"I'm only happy when I'm on the run, I break a million hearts just for fun, I don't belong to anyone/Instead of love, and trust, and laughter, what you get is "happy never after". But deep down, all you want is love, the pure kind we all dream of..."''
