Added DiffLines:

* Misty in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' becomes very cynical as a result of her terrible childhood. To sum it up: [[TheUnfavorite she was her parents' least favorite child]], her sisters kicked her out of their house as soon as they could, and on top of that, she's had to deal with [[FantasticRacism anti-bloodliner prejudice.]] Thankfully, she begins to grow out of it thanks to Ash's positive influence.

* Evelyn in the DragonAgeInquisition fanfic ''FanFic/WalkingInCircles'' has become this trope by the time canon events starts in the story. The trauma she suffered before and during the Circles uprising plus her two years [[spoiler: as a Tranquil]] has made her into a much more cynical and ruthless person to the point that she actually [[spoiler: supports Solasís goal]]. Yet at the same time, she still retains her kind and caring attitude.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/BloodBank'', most Art count as this: humans selected at a very young age to be raised as slaves for bourgeois vampires, often for sexual reasons. If they're "lucky" enough to escape being drained of blood by their masters after outliving their usefulness, they usually end up in the slums, unable to readjust to normal life. Special mention goes to Humpty Dumpty for being treated with drugs that prevent him from ever aging.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/Supergirl2015'' story ''Fanfic/{{Survivors}}'', [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Kara]] and [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Kal]] crash-land on Earth at the same time. Kara is essentially a homeless teen mother whose family regarded her as a means to an end and has been stranded in an alien, unfamiliar country with no money, food or clothes... and it's still better than her barren, sterile home. Even so she refuses to give up, manages to survive and find help and becomes the worldís premier hero.

This character was a hero herself once and failed miserably, or maybe she was [[FreudianExcuse abused]] in some way as a kid; whatever the case, her cynicism undoubtedly stems from some [[BreakTheCutie traumatic event in her past]] that destroyed her faith in just about everything. This revelation is normally accompanied by a FreakOut, said past often delivered in a [[DontYouDarePityMe bitter diatribe towards someone]] who proved a bit too stubborn in their desire to know what it was. At this point, [[TenderTears tears are guaranteed]], probably more of them the less she's expressed emotion in the past. She also has a 65% chance of engaging in serious physical violence against whoever is closest at the time. This is always treated seriously and Broken Birds have a tendency to be both [[AxCrazy prone to violence]] and very good at it, therefore, potential {{Love Interest}}s should always prepare to be at least slightly maimed during these breakdowns.

* The Witch in ''Theatre/IntotheWoods'' consistently embodies the cynical and badass qualities, warning Rapunzel, "the world is dark and wild." It never becomes entirely clear where the Witch's brokenness stems from, but she is persuasive enough in pointing out the failings of others to make us suspect that her ruthless and misanthropic ways came from somewhere.

* ''Film/TheInterview'': Sook yin-Park, a North Korean general who turns out to despise Kim Jong-un despite praising him repeatedly up to the point that she has to compliment him through terrible lies. This leads her to turn against her dictator and aid the American protagonists in overthrowing Kim.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' story ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', Kara had two options when she landed on Earth and was told her "life" had been a lie and her family -but her cousin- was gone: breaking down or making herself stronger. She chose the latter.
-->But she had to be tough. Finding out that so many years of her life were a pre-programmed lie, coming to a strange world, finding only one man of Krypton and then losing him, turning from innocence into grim experience on a planet she never made... she had to be tough, or break.
