** Suzaku Kururugui has his share too. Seeing his father was about to drive Japan into a war they couldn't win, he decides to [[spoiler: kill him to stop the war and save lives. This haunts him as he grows up and he becomes very suicidal for it.]] Then he meets Euphemia, who is revealed to be a princess of Britannia, and they quickly fell in love, which leads to him stopping being suicidal and forming a plan to make the world a better place. But on the day this plan was initiated (the creation of SAZ) [[spoiler: she gets ordered by Lelouch (although accidentally) to kill all the Japanese people present. After the massacre Lelouch kills her,]] sending Suzaku into despair. The last nail was the F.R.E.I.J.A. incident which [[spoiler: was caused due to his "live" geass being activated and making him fire a nuclear weapon killing millions of people]]. In the end one can argue that he didn't get a happy ending because [[spoiler: Susaku Kururugui is now a dead man and he is trapped into the Zero persona.]]

** The universe hates Lelouch so much that he has to [[spoiler:mind-control God]] just to get a BittersweetEnding... [[spoiler:which he doesn't even live long enough to experience.]] On a meta note, the writing staff of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' has often proclaimed their love for the show's protagonist Lelouch...and then they smack him with DiabolusExMachina after DiabolusExMachina, causing everyone connected to him to suffer, including [[spoiler:Shirley (loses father, goes through severe emotional torment, dies), Euphemia (accidentally mind controlled, reputation destroyed, killed), and C.C. (loses powers and memories up to the age of 10)]]. They insist that they do this out of affection, wanting Lelouch to learn AnAesop about appreciating what you have in life; the Japanese fandom responded by coining the term "Lulu Quality" to refer to such treatment.

Often includes a SmiteMeOhMightySmiter. May overlap with PowersThatBe, but a real confirmation or sign is not necessary. All that is necessary is the belief that a specific entity or group is working on the character. It may also overlap CantGetAwayWithNuthin, if the character interprets the situation as an active, immutable force on them personally, rather than "how the world works" for everyone. If there's more than one cosmic entity and the other one guides another character into antagonizing the first, it's a CosmicChessGame.

* Wanda, from ''Webcomic/ErfWorld'', sees herself and everybody else as this and believes that one can either embrace destiny or suffer in vain by resisting. The BigBad, Charlie, also suffers from this, but takes the opposite approach. He dedicates every single one of his efforts to stalling a prophecy knowing that Fate, the very GeniusLoci of Erfworld, manipulates events towards trying to kill him.

* Taken up to [[SerialEscalation INFINITY]] with [[Videogame/{{BlazBlue}} Ragna the Bloodedge]]. You know it's bad when many players feel like the only way for him to get his happy ending is by dying and be put out of his misery. [[note]] As a kid, the church where he lived with his two younger siblings is set on fire, his brother Jin goes AxCrazy and [[AnArmAndAleg chops off his arm]], the BigBad responsible for everything [[{{Troll}} Yuu]][[{{Sadist}} ki]] [[HopeCrusher Teru]][[CardCarryingVillain mi]] then takes his brother and sister Saya away leaving him to die in the mess. He's saved by a haughty vampire loli Rachel who gives him the [[ArtifactOfDoom Azure Grimoire]] which becomes his new arm and turns one of his eyes red and his hair white. He's trained by the [[WorldsStrongestMan world's strongest cat]] and given the mission to destroy all the Cauldrons situated at the [[TheGovernment NOL]] branches, becoming the world's most wanted criminal in the process. During the game's actual plot, that is, the ''Calamity Trigger'' storyline, he's continuously harassed by people who want the Azure Grimoire for their own reasons, finds out that Jin became a well-known Major in the NOL as well as a cold {{Jerkass}} who goes PsychopathicManchild on him, defeats said brother, then is attacked by a Badass old hero Hakumen who is a ''huge'' KnightTemplar and believes that he might bring TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt because his Grimoire used to be part of the [[EldritchAbomination Black Beast]] that destroyed around 70% of the world long ago and it might turn on him if he overuses it. Then, he finally reaches the Cauldron and fights [[ArtificialHuman Nu-13]], an OmnicidalManiac clone of Saya who goes {{Yandere}} on him and wants to [[UnusualEuphemism become one with him]], which is essentially the two falling into the Cauldron and becoming the Black Beast. He's saved from that fate by [[NiceGirl Noel Vermillion]] but then Terumi returns. During ''Continuum Shift'', people still want his Grimoire, Jin is still a {{Jerkass}} who wants to kill him (although on way to CharacterDevelopment), the Noel girl turns out to be ''another'' clone of his sister who is forced to cross the DespairEventHorizon by Terumi and becomes a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds threatening to destroy the whole world. Terumi turns out to be the creator of his Azure Grimoire, curbstomps him until Lambda, ''another'' clone of his sister but with the soul of Nu performs a HeroicSacrifice and he manages to defeat him. To save Noel, he ends up losing his remaining non-artificial arm and then discovers that everything he did against Terumi, from simply ''hating'' him to [[NotQuiteDead killing him]] [[JustasPlanned was essential for Terumi's survival]] and that his missing sister Saya is the Imperator of the NOL. During ''Chronophantasma'', he finds out that Saya is being possessed by the Japanese goddess of death, Izanami. [[TimeyWimeyBall He goes back in time to stop the Black Beast.]] The nun who took care of him was someone he met during the time travel ''and'' has [[BackFromTheDead been revived]] to [[BackForTheDead become the trigger of a very risky plan which will cost her life]]. [[CharacterDevelopment By the end of the game,]] he TookALevelInBadass and in [[TookALevelInKindness kindness]], gained the respect of many, defeated the EldritchAbomination of a KillSat, Takemikazuchi and [[BackFromTheDead Nu]]. [[HopeSpot BUT when everything seemed to be getting well]], Izanami [[YankTheDogsChain makes his Azure go berserk, Nu literally backstabs him, making him lose control and attacking his friends with no way to stop it. According to Rachel during the epilogue, the beast is eating him from the inside and if things go drastic, Ragna must be put down.]][[/note]]

* Brolli in ''WebAnimation/DiamondInTheRoughTouhou'' fits. It's PlayedForLaughs in the first part of the series, with him being called out on his stubborness, and it's PlayedForDrama in the second part, in which he has to solve everything, but can't.
