* All the Manga/{{Claymore}}s share more or less the same DarkAndTroubledPast : family murdered by Youma, exiled from their village, and then are forced to become HalfHumanHybrid. That means that each Claymore has her complex and Cynicism Catalyst. A significant part of the story is about the various way each of them react with that, such as starting a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, feeling guilty of being the only survivor, or going KnightTemplar.

* In ''ComicBook/Supergirl2005'' story arc ''Way of the World'', ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} runs into Aftermath, a villain who used to be a normal person who believed heroes were real and bad things only happened to bad people until ''[[ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman the first battle between Superman and Doomsday]]'' cost him his legs.
-->'''Aftermath:''' Once upon a time the world was simple. There were heroes and there were villains and bad things only happened to bad people. And then Doomsday came. "Luckily", I survived the attack, but by then I'd come to realize-- that sometimes the bad can even afflict the good. And that while we may believe in heroes, there really is no such thing.

* Miles Edgeworth in the ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' series was a excitable and energetic child that strove to defend the innocent like his father was doing as a defense attorney. One day, Edgeworth's father was killed and he was taken in by Manfred von Karma, who raised him to be a ruthless prosecutor. Edgeworth grew up thinking defense attorneys were scumbags and the guilty should be punished. His personality also changed greatly where he is very stoic, rarely emotes, and always tries to keep up a professional front instead of just being himself. Edgeworth does lighten up a little bit after some CharacterDevelopment, but he's no longer the energetic and eager person he once was.
