* Orihime Inoue, a girl with long orange hair and a very cheerful attitude, from ''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Manga/Bleach?from=Main.Bleach Bleach]]'' fits this trope pretty well, losing all her family members to accidents and having to see her dead brother turn into a horrific spiritual monster, who then tries to eat her.

* Heavily {{deconstructed}} in ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman''. As it turns out, becoming a decent and caring person in spite of the horrid experiences suffered might bring rather dire implications if the person doesn't deal directly with his psyche; as such, he could resort to becoming TheParagon and hollow himself as the happy façade he puts on becomes thinner and thinner (like [[StepfordSmiler Secretariat]]), he could keep the "helping and comforting" part by doing noble deeds out of selfish motives or a guilty conscience (like [[MightyWhitey Sebastian St. Claire]]) or without being a bad person themselves, he could let the pent-up fury and sadness leak through the surface until becoming outright nastiness (like [[SourOutsideSadInside [=BoJack=]]]). You can be a BrokenHero but without real help or support, ''it will cost you''.

* Allen Walker of ''Manga/DGrayMan''. He's [[NiceGuy nice]], [[ThePollyanna cheerful]], [[WideEyedIdealist idealistic]], and [[{{Bishonen}} really]], ''[[BadassAdorable really]]'' cute, but his life has been kind of traumatic. By which we mean that his parents abandoned him, [[spoiler: he was beaten by ''clowns'' until he got adopted]], his foster father died, his mentor abused him, and he has to watch tormented Akuma souls screaming in pain. He's one of the most {{Badass}} [[TheWoobie woobie]]s ever.
