* Erwin Smith from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' sports one of these, when it's revealed that [[spoiler: the Titans once were humans]]. He also has a huge reason for that: [[spoiler: his father had already guessed it and [[HeKnowstooMuch was executed for such reasons]]; basically, the recent discovery ''proved Erwin's dad right all along''.]]

* Gamzee in {{Brainbent}} has a particularly [[{{Tearjerker}} heartbreaking]] one when he thinks he's made Sollux hate him. He's a bit of a type-a StepfordSmiler overall, depressingly enough.
