* Lucius from ''Franchise/FireEmblem''. He was brutally tormented in an orphanage after his parents died when he was three, yet he still treats everyone with compassion and fairness, even going so far as to say that he wished that the man that abused him could still live well.

to:

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': Shinji has suffered terribly, he has lost his mother and his family, and he has seen literally everyone dying… but he tries to be optimistic and upbeat when he returns to the past because being sad and depressed the whole time got him precisely nowhere the last time around.

* Jarod ThePretender is this, though we find out the basics of his backstory pretty quickly. He was kidnapped as a child; mentally, emotionally, and physically abused; kept as a slave for most of his life; and as the series progresses it [[TraumaCongaLine gets worse]], but his personality is that of a cheerful, {{Adorkable}}, mischievous, and insatiably curious ManChild (at least until he gets into psycho badass avenger Pretender mode or has the occasional HeroicBSOD).

* Pretty much [[DysfunctionJunction everybody]] in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse. There's ComicBook/CaptainAmerica (grew up poor during the Great Depression, parents died when he was young, dead sidekick and identity issues), [[ComicBook/LukeCageHeroForHire Luke Cage]] (grew up in a bad part of New York, wrongly jailed for drug possession), ComicBook/IronMan (alcoholism, depression, self-worth issues, romantic issues and massive survivor's guilt), {{SelfDemonstrating/Deadpool}} (disfigured, partially reformed murderer, crazy), every single [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} X-Man]] (FantasticRacism), the [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Fantastic "I promise I'll make you normal again someday, Ben!" Four]], a certain Dr. [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]], Rick "the Hulk is my fault and I'm often trapped in the Negative Zone" Jones, the seething mass of neurosis that is {{Franchise/Spider Man}}, everything that's wrong with [[ComicBook/AntMan Henry Pym]], and... yeah, pretty much everybody else.

to:

* When Shinji and Asuka got together and befriended Rei in ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'', the Children became a bit happier due to their stronger emotional bonds. They're still traumatized teenagers, but they smile more often and they're actually hopeful about their future. And they've become better warriors, too.

to:

to:

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Shinji, Asuka and Rei were abused children. When they convert to ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Chaos]]'', though, they focus on the positive aspects of their dark gods, and although neither of them is nice, Shinji becomes optimistic and hopeful, Rei happy and mirthful, and Asuka courageous and passionate.
