* ''Manga/OnePiece'': every character that joins the crew (and then some) have a tragic past, as if it's a requirement to jump aboard a ship with Luffy. Most pasts, however, take a usually "boring" subject and draw them out into originality. A good example is Sanji; everyone knows being stranded on an island sucks, but this is hardly an island: it's a mushroom rock that's too far above sea water to fish and incapable of sustaining any life...because it's a ROCK. Not to mention, he realizes that the only other person on this island has a big ol' bag of, what he thinks is, food, much bigger than the one he gave to Sanji. However, it turns out that other guy just had a bunch of money and absolutely NO food, and that instead of keeping any for himself, gave ''all'' the food he recovered to Sanji and ''broke off and ate his own leg'' to survive. And on top of all ''that'', the food that Sanji got was barely enought to last 20 days (though it lasted 25 days). It took ''eight-five days'' for a ship to find them. One can only imagine how hellish the last 60 days (''two months'') must have been. No wonder Sanji considers wasting food to be a horrible offense.

** In the Totland arc, the abovementioned example turns out to actually mark the rough ''end'' to Sanji's horrible past. [[spoiler:He was born part of the Vinsmoke family, a family of assassins whose head, Sanji's father Vinsmoke Judge, leads a massive army with ambitions of reconquering North Blue. To that end, Judge had his children genetically modified and subjected to TrainingFromHell, to draw out their hidden potential and turn them into {{Super Soldier}}s. However, unlike his siblings, Sanji failed to make any progress, instead remaining a regular human being, causing his father and brothers to brutally abuse him mentally and physically while his sister just laughed (Though to be fair, she had no choice but to do so to avoid being bullied herself). Eventually, Judge got too fed up with Sanji's lack of progress to bother continuing to raise him, and instead faked his son's death before locking him in a dark room and forcing him to wear an iron mask. Keep in mind that this happened ''before'' that aforementioned traumatic example with Zeff! No wonder Sanji hates his family's guts.]]

* In [[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/255512/we-are-what-we-are We Are What We Are]] each Dazzling has one. It's so bad it's no wonder Sunset tried to send them home after Adagio told her them.
** Adagio Dazzle had the happiest life. ...Until she got married. Her husband cared little for her, yet still tried to kill her and her lover when she had an affair. She was forced to flee, leaving her happy rich lifestyle for a homeless life constantly on the run.
** Sonata Dusk was abused by her parents and was only ever shown kindness once in her entire pre-Siren life. She didn't even want to go with Adagio and Aria, but was forced to when soldiers destroyed her home.
** Aria Blaze arguably had it the ''worst.'' She never even knew her parents and was raised in a horrible OrphanageOfFear where she was abused constantly for her beauty and singing voice. It's made worse when it's revealed that she would never get to leave because she was adopted by the worst of her abusers. She tried to escape several times only to be stopped every time (she was even nearly killed once)except her final time. Is it any wonder why they're so hateful?

* [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Shadow the Hedgehog]] probably has the darkest past of all the Sonic characters. He was created as the UltimateLifeform in an attempt to cure a [[LittlestCancerPatient terminally ill twelve-year-old girl]], had his home ambushed and said ill child die in front of him from a gunshot wound, was thrown into stasis and had his memories [[LaserGuidedAmnesia tampered by his creator]] to turn him into [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge a ruthless killing machine]]. And all it took to turn his character around was a RousingSpeech by a ''different'' twelve year old girl, a HeroicSacrifice which resulted in him''getting amnesia'', spending [[VideoGame/SonicHeroes not one]], [[VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog not two]], but ''[[VideoGame/SonicBattle three]]'' games trying to remember things properly again, and [[ToServeMan the near planetary takeover of an alien race]] to snap him out of his amnesia for good and to put his past behind him. ''Yikes.''

* The crew of captain Icomb's ship in ''Literature/SkiesUnbroken'' has: two former {{Sky Pirate}}s (including the good captain himself), one not-so-former SkyPirate who joins later, a soldier whose side lost TheWarJustBefore, and a WaifProphet. It's their passenger's Dark and Troubled Past that is, however, most frequently (if vaguely) alluded to.

* In ''Webcomic/TheLessThanEpicAdventuresOfTJAndAmal'', hints of this slip past TJ's jovial facade. Even the day after he and Amal meet, he makes light of having given sexual favours in exchange for food at a young age. [[spoiler:Later on, some of the stuff he ''really'' didn't want to share gets dragged into the light.]]

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Anastasia and her family were shipwrecked in Japan, where her family died and she was sold into sex slavery, then later trained to be a ninja. While looking for the last heirloom of her family, [[spoiler:Hanzo appeared to have it. He then coerced her to join the [[FiveBadBand Iga Grotesque Five]] and infiltrate the Braves as TheMole. This is also why the concept of 'family' is a BerserkButton for her and what made her hate the easy bonds between the rest of the Braves.]]

** It comes completely unexpected with Delenn, who, throughout the show, is well known for her compassion and kindness, as well as being a firm believer in the just cause and a wise advisor to others, cautioning against anger and hatred. However, it's not until much later that some details from her earlier life get revealed. [[spoiler:She was aboard the ship that encountered the first human vessel and whose salute to the strangers scared the humans so much that they opened fire. When the initial salvo killed the most important religious leader of the minbari, she became the highest ranking person on the ship, and still holding the dead body of her teacher, immediately ordered a holy crusade by the whole minbari people [[KillAllHumans to completely annihilate the entire human race]]. When the destruction of earth was stopped at the very last moment, it was because she regretted her order.]]

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'':
** Eiji Hino from ''Series/KamenRiderOOO''. He is the son of a rich Japanese politician. During a visit to an African country, he befriended a local young girl named Alfreed. Unfortunately, he got caught up in a civil war and saw Alfreed die before his eyes. Eiji himself was captured and held for ransom. While his family did pay the ransom, his father used the tragedy Eiji went through as a way to gain more votes. This event left Eiji devoid of any selfish desire with him only wanting to live to help others.
** Haruto Souma from ''Series/KamenRiderWizard''. Both of his parents died in a car crash. Just before the series starts, he was used as a sacrifice in a magic ritual known as the Sabbath. He barely managed to survive as he found the will to do so in a promise he made to his parents, where he said he would never give in to despair.
** Kaito Kumon, TheRival in ''Series/KamenRiderGaim''. [[MegaCorp Yggdrassil]] shuts down his fathers factory, causing his family to become very poor. As a result, Kaito's father becomes an alcoholic who frequently abuses his family. To make matters worse, both of his parents commit suicide, resulting in Kaito being put into an orphanage.
